General Discussion / Thesis
« on: December 05, 2011, 03:18:57 PM »
Ok guys and girls. I never wanted to ask for this but I need your help people. This is my third and last year of this college and I will hopefully get my Bachelor's degree, but first I need to write a thesis. I decided to write about satire
I would also ask of you for online information about authors and works such as:
Daniel Defoe-"The True Born Englishman"
Alexander Pope-"The Rape of the Lock"
Samuel Johnson-"London"
Douglas Adams-"The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy"(preferably from 1979)
William S. Burroughs-"The Naked Lunch"
I have some bits and pieces of information on some of the things I wanted to cover in my thesis but looking it all up alone might take me too long and by the 22 December I will have to give in the whole first chapter of it. I will be really grateful for anything you people can help me with. But this doesn't mean I won't look on my own, I just don't have an easy access to any English language books and magazines which makes my work on the thesis even harder.


EDIT: I changed the post, not to be considered as a pirate, never did piracy and I don't want to start doing it now.

Maybe not a completely fantasy game but still a good MMORPG ^^ Would be a good place to make a roleplaying guild as every guild has its own and personal guildhall included in the fee for starting a guild ^^
Maybe you don't have as many options and choices as in WoW or other bigger MMORPG's but still it gives nice options ;) About 3 fighting classes, 1 trader and 1 explorer ^^ Not much but with the ways to earn cash and what you can do it gives many opportunities. You can be a land hogging character mining and cutting down trees to forge them into materials to rebuild your ship or create parts for the ships, killing goats to get wool to make fabric to sew it into armor or to make weapons and heavy armor using a hammer.
But what many people choose is a trading career with the specialized trading ship or fight pirates with the military ships, or on the contrary join the pirates and sink NPC traders from every country. But for those who feel the explorer in their blood you can go and discover many things on board of your fast traveling ship equipped on a certain lvl with oars to go against the wind with ease.

Even though it presents not so many choices you can customize your characters with skills and stunts to those skills, as well as with the ship. It is a good idea to make a trader to earn a lot of cash in a short time, especially if you find a good and worthy trade route the income just keeps on rolling in fast ^^ And the farther the goods travel from their place of origin the more you earn ^^
I personally chose a career as an armed businessman ^^

I bought a copy of Ivanhoe some time ago and I always wondered from what year it might be. I thought of looking for some kind of a forum that could help me find the answer to this question. So maybe you guys(and girls ;) ) can help me.

I think it might be from around the year 1923 but I'm not sure about this. It's just my deduction from the year the offer from the back of the book ends. If this is true I might have a pretty old book on my bookshelf.

Seeing the topics on the MMORPG's appearing here I think I can post this thread ^^ Anyone playing this game? I started playing for the second time last week. Have to say that this time it's seems to me to be much easier to get cash then before Legend 1. Well my first contact with this game was a really long time ago, but most I got to was lvl 21 back then. Yeah I know I'm bad at grinding xD But now with an European character I managed to get to lvl 27 :D
I have to say, it seems similar to any other MMORPG but it has one significant difference, the conflict between occupations. Thieves, Hunters and Traders; a constant conflict between Thieves who try to kill the traders, and Hunters who do what they can to protect the Traders and this gives a good whack in the game. Two races are available, Chinese characters(first implemented) and European characters(implemented in Legend 1). Both have advantages and disadvantages but even though the much longer time between potion usage for Europeans(about 15 sek) I like to play on that side as we get defined classes of characters. Warriors, Rouges, Wizards, Warlocks, Clerics and Bards. And nobody can ultimately hunt all alone, a wizard has less chances of survival then a lone Chinese character, but that is why the team is important since Legend 1. This calls for a lot of cooperation and thought on what you want to do in the team.
Ah got it longer then I planned :D

I will be absent for at least a week. I'm going to the hospital with flu and I don't have a say in this. I just have to go and there is nothing I can do about it :( I just had to sit next to the sick guy on my Monday lectures :/ If only I had a say about it I would stay at home but now with the H1N1 influenza A the doctors want to stay on the safe side.
As soon as I get back home I'll post it here ;) And who knows, maybe a good story will come to me there and I will have a chance to write it down ;)
