YuriM: that's why we tend to have a bot around to tell us :)
21:13
YuriM
over here it's 2400 and my timezone is GMT +2, so I thought it should have started already :)
21:14

21:15
nowhere
er daylight saving was the english term for it, right
21:15
YuriM
then something's wrong with the country I'm living in...
21:16
nowhere
hehe
21:16
nowhere
I could say that, too
21:18
YuriM
an hour early is better than hour late anyway...
21:18
nowhere

21:21
Lee
- any other issues
21:21
Lee
first off, anything to add to the agenda?
21:21
nowhere
ok, may I add one 'other issue'?
21:22
* nowhere bows to Lee
21:22
nowhere
ok, I have some Syllus questions
21:23
rsteinke joined this channel.
21:23
Munin joined this channel.
21:24
Lee
ok
21:25
nowhere
but let's first do the other stuff
21:26
Lee
ok
21:26
Lee
- Progress
21:26
Lee
I have been very busy with uni here lately, and i haven't noticed much progress here
21:27
Lee
does anyone have any thoughts on this? why? what needs to be done?
21:27
* nowhere tries to whistle nonchalantly
21:28
nowhere
but I've been busy, too... didn't even really have time to do KF stuff for about 6 weeks
21:28
nowhere
hrm
21:29
nowhere
ok, pato told the media team to do some concept art for that moraf town mason is set
21:29
nowhere
what do we know about that? is the layout of the town finished?
21:29
YuriM
i'd start working if someone filled me in on any specific goals.
21:30
YuriM
i have only a very vague idea of what's going on
21:31
Lee
nowhere: we know some of what's there, i don't think we do have a layout for the town...
21:31
Lee
maybe ask gnoll, he was working on that stuff
21:31
nowhere
ok
21:31
nowhere
I'll ask him whe he's back
21:32
Lee
YuriM: basically, we are trying to create our area of the website from the CVS and a book on dural from the same sources
21:33
Lee
mostly we are describing the culture and general environment for each country in Dural
21:36
YuriM
is it ok if i weave in a few extra cultures and countries around the edges?
21:36
nowhere
what ideas do you have?
21:37
nowhere
maybe we can fit some of those into our 'original' design
21:37
YuriM
i've got at least one country that's pretty fleshed out from my work in Arianne
21:37
nowhere
cool
21:39
YuriM
oh btw, kosh told me to bring this up in a worlds meeting. what do you think of: werewolves the race?
21:39
nowhere
hmm
21:40
nowhere
I'd like the idea
21:40
* nowhere also has some concept art ideas
21:40
nowhere
how wolf-like would they be?
21:41
YuriM
wolf-like?
21:41
YuriM
wolf-like as wolves...
21:41
* YuriM shrugs
21:41
nowhere
hm
21:41
YuriM
what do you mean wolf-like?
21:42
nowhere
will they only be wolves at full moon or can they decide when to be a wolf and when to be human?
21:42
YuriM
they decide.
21:42
nowhere
ok.. cool
21:43
YuriM
but when it's the full moon, they have a bit of trouble cause they might subconciously start transforming
21:43
rsteinke
That'll be interesting, considering we have wolf-eating pigs left over from acorn.
21:44
YuriM
wolf-eating pigs?
21:44
rsteinke
Er, pig-eating wolves.
21:44
nowhere
hehe
21:44
nowhere
maybe we can ge munin to model them, too
21:45
YuriM
the graphics is easy. you just take some wolves and humans and add morphing animations
21:46
YuriM
i'll just post all the materials i have in the races section, shall i?
21:47
nowhere
would be nice
21:47
* nowhere is glad to have a really active world developer around
21:47
YuriM
heh, btw, the werewolf name for themselves is 'Kai'
21:47
nowhere
most of us are doing too many other things to be really involved
21:47
* nowhere nods
21:48
nowhere
I already know.. you told me
21:48
YuriM
oh yeah...
21:48
Lee
YuriM: if you could put it in the races section of the cvs would be good
21:49
YuriM
cvs?
21:49
YuriM
er, i don't have an account in cvs
21:50
nowhere
hmm
21:50
YuriM
or is it the same one as the one i use for editing pages?
21:50
nowhere
found a site that has lots of meanings for 'Kai', but the celtic version is still missing
21:51
Lee
it is different from the editing the website
21:51
Lee
put it on the website, and remind people to move it to the cvs (or get a cvs account
21:51
Lee
)
21:51
YuriM
ok
21:51
Lee
- File formats
21:52
Lee
we still haven't found a file format yet
21:52
nowhere
YuriM: I'll get you a cvs account.. or talk to anubis to get it yourself
21:52
nowhere
file format for what?
21:52
Lee
i'm going to look at what bryce posted
21:52
Lee
source docs
21:52
nowhere
hmm
21:53
nowhere
didn't we decide on LaTex?
21:53
Lee
nope (i don't think so... i could be wrong though)
21:54
nowhere
me too :)
21:54
nowhere
ok, never mind then
21:55
nowhere
we should say: "A format that can be easily converted to LaTex"
21:55
nowhere
how about that?
21:55
Lee
yes
21:56
nowhere
then I can do docbook, some others can do LaTex directly and still others can do formatted text or whatever
22:00
* anubis is away: (riding the bus) [BX-MsgLog On]
22:00
nowhere
ok, next review?
22:00
Lee
- the next review
22:01
nowhere
:)
22:01
nowhere
when will that be?
22:01
nowhere
aka: deadline?
22:01
Lee
ardmor or somewhere else? more of moraf?
22:02
Lee
the next duralsaur will be created after it
22:02
nowhere
hmm
22:02
nowhere
I'd like some syllus reviews
22:02
Lee
2-3 weeks? maybe a bit longer
22:03
nowhere
I'm writing some storybook for comicforge, and I wouldn't mind some additional input :)
22:03
nowhere
sounds reasonable
