I really enjoy watching my friends or roommate play it.
I myself got annoyed really fast. I can't play single player games, I will always give up.
It looks great and played pretty well, but I simply can't be bothered to play it myself :P

And surely you don't think that a book featuring any sort of gay character is just attention seeking? It's usually just a relationship between two characters, same as any other relationship.

It's not necessarily attention seeking, the flinging it in your face is.
As long as a character is gay and the writer does not rub it in our face, as his primary element, I am fine with that.
This is not the base of the character, this is not the point of view that it is written from.

In the case of an LGBT character that stands out, it would mean someone focused on this as a primary trope and in that case I think it is attention seeking.

Why did I start with this, simple.. it attracted my attention. I also didn't realize it was an older topic :D

Please do understand I honestly do not care how people identify themselves or what attracts them, it's just the part that nowadays, everyone thinks its supposed to be thrown in everyones faces.

1. Ban clothing during mild weather.
2. Seriously discourage others from trying to take my throne.
3. Tell people world peace is a lie and form a peace alliance, that will create conflict everywhere, without resorting to violence. which is an OK substitute I guess.
4. Introduce laws that teach people who get offended by words, to build resistance towards other peoples opinions..

A lot more..

Icecream for everyone

I am opinionated and do not agree with every single "given"  that people tend to agree to.
If opposing others cause I disagree is called trolling, I will be banned soon probably.

I do not intend to attack anyone personally.
I do encourage people to think further than the edge of their noses and to question things they think are normal.

Maybe I am, that's human nature for it, we can't go without lumping them together cause that's not how we compute.

Anyway, I am happy that there is a faction within the LGBT Community that agree.
Too bad that it's like many other things, still an easy way to score attention and is in no way something that can be measured.

It's sad for those who actually struggle with either their sexual orientation or their own gender, that such a visible group gives them such a bad impression. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with the impression that attention seeking is key there.

Sorry, but I always think it's weird to ask other people how to structure your own magic.

To ask for pointers what to consider, yes.
Other than that, I'd say... give it a go. It's a lot more fun to develop your own.

Wrote 2000 words today on a rough draft.

Knowing myself it will take me at least 3 days to edit it till I am happy.
Once I receive feedback, most will be rewritten again  :D

Hi Everyone,

New on the forum.
I am an aspiring writer who hasn't written anything in his life, other than my dissertation.

I'm a Dutch guy, I live in Bulgaria and write in English.
I'm writing a technological  fantasy cross-over. Not really inspired on any real book, other than my own common sense and my ideas on what would be awesome.

Happy to be here and hope to learn a lot of all of you.

PS: These letters under the posts are a pain as I can't really see it well.

I find the LGBT community incredibly attention seeking.
We don't care what your gender or sexual orientation is.

People tend to over-inform others on that end, just to get attention, whether it's positive or negative.
I think in most cases in books, that's the same case.

"Look I did something controversial, now read my book."

Anyone has the right to do whatever, but as with religion or your ideology, you don't have to rub it in my face.
Good for you.. but I really don't care.
