Re: LGBT Education row in UK I work in a Primary School in the UK and really not sure what the fuss is. We just explain there are different types of relationships and families. Which makes sense as we do have children with lesbian and gay parents so would be odd not to acknowedge that. In fact would be rather cruel and psychologically damaging to the child!

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) Feigðarflótti has now been printed, and will be shipped tomorrow. I will pick the copies up on Thursday morning.

I will then deliver them to the local bookstore and supermarkets, and start the process of sending reward copies to my backers.

A lovely mini-movie in 2 minutes:

Re: LGBT Education row in UK
And to highlight the point

Strangely enough the Government who allowed free/faith schools was warned that faith based education would diverge from UK and European law, fail to educate and increase division. Who would have thunk it.

What a horrible man. It's just one step removed from honor killing. Faith education should be banned. We have cases where children are taught evolution is false, Harry Potter is banned and similar nonsense.

Re: Motorbikes
It's actually a bit scary as I have to learn the bike again. The riding position and set up do not feel natural after 6 months not riding it.

It'll come back! Glad to hear you and your bike are all in one piece.

Re: Politics and other ailments of the real world
Our voting system often inflates majorities. In 2015, or 2014, I forget which, the Conservative party won only around 30% of the votes, but still got a majority of seats. So it's likely that Johnson's support isn't as large as the results suggest.


This is how Germany would look with your voting system:

Black: Union (Merkel's party, so maybe a bit like your Tories but not as insane); Red: SPD (Labour); Light Blue: AfD (far right); Violett: Die Linke (Labour but a bit more left)

This is what the seat distribution actually looks like:

Green: Grüne (environmental party); Yellow: FDP (Liberals)

One of the benefits of WWII if you can say that. We got an updated state-of-the-art constitution and electoral law. Ironically it was made with/by the Allies to minimize the chance of another Hitler getting into power and now the US face a fascist coup (with Trump's talk about a 3rd term, with McConnell and Graham saying that the impeachment trial will be a kangaroo court in total accordance with the White House and with the GOP's general party over country policy it's hard to see it in any other way).

Re: Game Awards Yes, very much. But be prepared: it's very focused on the narrative and has a novel's worth of reading. The game mechanics are almost entirely based on the dialogue system (which includes your inner dialogue).

That being said, it's bloody amazing and I can't recommend it enough. Beautiful, haunting, otherworldly. Well-written. I can't praise it enough.
