RockPusher: The shame! Avert your eyes!
kaffeetrinken89: a story about pillars is totally about post production, i guess.
Invitare: and building cathedrals...
Pazy160: Im sure the new cathedral will calm down the anarchy.
LordChrusher: I read the book many years ago
SpacePotato01: Is this before or after the GoT prequel?
Invitare: building a cathedral is the ultimate form of graffiti
TheOtherTrevor: I just learned there was a 4th book in this series I hadn't read and a 5th due later this year

Invitare: just use this one!
RockPusher: niccus > You pick your nose, congratulations, it is now unlocked
Gekyouryuu: this is more of a chapel
niccus: *can* you have an indoor gargoyle? would it not be a grotesque unless you want mold?
TehAmelie: oh, the cathedral at the title page was unfinished, not ruined?
TheOtherTrevor: Is everything supposed to be a silhouette?
Thisbymaster: a woman, reading? in the 12th century? She could be burned as a witch

keroan0: Man, being a pregnant woman before antibiotics must have been really quietly terrifying
Invitare: child birth was a killer
TheMandrew: @macbody2 the story in pillars is good. but the content can be rough to get through. lots of bad, uncomfortable things happen to people
niccus: having two healthy kids and a third on the way is a pretty good track record for the time
RockPusher: Lechonk escher3CRIMES
macbody2: I've seen it on many bookshelves and always seen it as a kinda memey-book -- Too popular. And most good litterature is disturbing. That is what makes it good.
rotarysorter: lived through childbirth Pog
DaScrooge: so far so good
TehAmelie: i believe 25% of women died in childbirth until we had like, soap

SquareDotCube: that's a year's salary of cheese
TehAmelie: do you eat your cheese with the peel?
VeryBadLifeChoices: he'll pocket the horse too
niccus: you definitely don't want to see Posterior James

lackingsanity: fun (?) fact: the name francis here is ahistorical, as the game is set before the life of francis of assisi
TehAmelie: Blois sounds like a name someone made up because Alois was taken
Pteraspidomorphi: :D
SquareDotCube: typical England - France relations for the Medieval ages
TehAmelie: and then we got Clois, inventor of the cloister. . .
DaScrooge: this is the time where a dual title was inheritet, right?

hackingducks: cori's shirt is like a video encoder test pattern
Gaz_L: omg, there was a musical too!
Pteraspidomorphi: You couldn't refuse the nomination
RockPusher: You could fail on Animal Farm
RockPusher: also the characters could go before their time
Gaz_L: i do like when games have other characters have agency. having choices doesn't necessarily mean your character can influence the outcome of everything
RockPusher: seabatCHOICE
Gaz_L: the illusion of choice shouldn't be a derogatory thing
Pteraspidomorphi: Pentiment does choice well and has real choice, but it also has plenty of illusory moments that do not detract from the experience
satyropodobny: Even if we did'nt prevent the burning the letter would survive, since prior james explicitly forbid the burning of his bible
Gaz_L: it just means some of the game is happening in the player's mind. how you react to the choice presented
RockPusher: Teenage Exocolonist is about as best I've seen for interactive fiction with somewhat meaningful choice
RockPusher: It's fun to be belligerent :D

RockPusher: Remington Monk
TehAmelie: The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante has like a 2% chance of you picking the correct series of choices to live through the game and get a positive ending, but it does let you make all those bad choices. . .
matthaus_c: we're engaging with paratext!
Gaz_L: it's like any adaptation. films do the same thing, it's the screenwriter and director, and actors' etc interpretation of the book
matthaus_c: I like how this adaptation invites you to explore a range of possible feelings the devs have interpreted through scenes in the book
DoodlestheGreat: You ARE scintillating, Cameron.

matthaus_c: it's okay, Roland Barthes has been rolling over in his grave about it too
Akaiatana: Cameron's train of though: adaptations as interesting interpretations

matthaus_c: I'll use my trusty frying pan... as a drying pan!
DrBatman0: @matthaus_c man, I love pokemon
spurius: imagine adpating a book into a movie and making it a satire of the themes the original author intended
KV1NN4: I think Nintendo Japan supported the Jelly Donut translation
KV1NN4: they were hoping it would help western kids get more into it
xantos69: I like translation because I don't speak other languages. I PREFER localization, because I am not from other cultures. The question is always just... was the localization done well or not.
ShatteredShamrock: i'd argue that neil patrick harris is also sad in the film
jibkat: nuke grandes as well!!
jibkat: you mean the people dressed in black shirts are bad? mattlrPika
Gaz_L: i always think about Don Quixote, and how the book is basically 'haha look at this silly man pretending to be a night, isn't that stupid' but many adaptations find a sort of nobility in his individualism
Akaiatana: They are going to think Isekais are tragic in four hundred years
Invitare: Don Quixote is the best selling book of all time

ShatteredShamrock: The Sequel to Don Quixote does some next level meta petty nonsense that I love
Pteraspidomorphi: I mean, many isekais are tragic right now
RockPusher: lrrHAM let
DrBatman0: please forgive my ignorance - What is an isekai?
LordChrusher: reading books in translation is easier when they are annotated

Invitare: @DrBatman0 character gets inserted into another world/time
Invitare: Pokemon Legends: Arceus is an Isekai, if you've played that
Gaz_L: @DrBatman0 a sub-genre, mostly in manga/anime where a character dies and wakes up in another world, like a fairy tale world or something
DrBatman0: @DrBatman0 oh right. Alince in wonderland, Inuyasha, stuff like that?
matthaus_c: one day there will be adaptations of this sub scroll
DoodlestheGreat: @DrBatman0 A genre of fiction in Japan where the protagonist is somehow transported to a different world. Think "Alice in Wonderland" or "A Connetcticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court."
xantos69: Cheer50 Bits!
Boopity: Oh my god it did not occur to me that Alice in Wonderland is an isekai LUL
DrBatman0: Also a bunch of episodes of Doctor Who?
TehAmelie: now i wonder what sad nobility the future will find in Homer Simpsons's mindless self-destroying avoidance of adult responsibilities
RockPusher: lrrSHINE lrrSHINE lrrSHINE
Invitare: Doctor Who is just Sci-Fi
Invitare: not really an Isekai

ShatteredShamrock: Dam Fam Card Jam?
Gaz_L: just don't draw cards
Spades_Slicc: it's great
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
xantos69: To play around Sheoldrid... simply don't draw cards.
DoodlestheGreat: BYE!
Spades_Slicc: Have a nice day everyone
Invitare: @DrBatman0 Isekai is a one time thing, you don't go back
DrBatman0: or the star trek episodes where they're stuck in present-day

DrBatman0: @DrBatman0 I see

wistol subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 30 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, wistol! (Today's storm count: 28)
matthaus_c: @Gaz_L not really, they just don't synergise. Urabrask doesn't replace your draw step, just adds a thing
Invitare: usually with overly long descriptive names
matthaus_c: if you mean on the Opponent's side, yes they won't get pinged for 2 for their draw step, but any additional cards will ping them
Gaz_L: @matthaus_c yeah, that's what i just realised. the lifegain for the person with Sheoldred is good, but it's the nug for 2 that makes it really oppressive
TehAmelie: wow, missed opportunity of the decade
TehAmelie: they could have called resident Evil 7 Bayouhazard (thanks twitter)
TehAmelie: and on that note, goodnight chat
Spades_Slicc: goodnight
