You can buy it here, new, and with the expansion pack all for a whopping 4.88. Shipping shouldn't be too much of an issue, me thinks for those living in America.

:)

Edit: Just looked at the link. It isn't sold out, so I don't see why it would say that in the URL. Ah, whatever. Buy it! lol

It eventually got to the point on part 14 where I couldn't maneuver because of its massive bulk, and then it would simply flood the entire map with needles. lol, it was fun while it lasted, I don't have an exact score, but it was somewhere around 10 million due to me taking out entire arms from the 'focal points' or whatever their called. Don't put me on the list because its not an exact number. ;D

Quoted From: The Internet.
Aha, my friend, you have fallen into the trap of believing the world of Dwarf Fortress is the same as reality.

You see, though the name is but "carp" the "carp" in question is to Dwarves as "jaws" is to us humans.

Due to the limitations of the game's graphical engine, which powerful as it may be, can't but be defeated by the sheer awesomeness of some of Dwarf Fortress's more colourful fauna. So, to compensate, I shall now describe some of the creatures and items in Dwarf Fortress that people generally misconceive.

THE CARP, THE ELEPHANT, AND THE CROSSBOW
Behold, the wonderful creature that is the carp. Spawned from the very ashes of an ancient slain demon a millennium ago while the land was young and the elven virgins were ripe. The cremated fillings of the foul abyss-spawn polluted a small patch of land in a savanna where young creatures newly spawned from the great chalice of code trotted about and had gaily parties with all folk. Some of these merry younglings were elephants, timid and kind-hearted as they come, for they were created by the great He Whose Keys Make What Is to be benevolent and be caretakers of all life.

But he erred, he did not account for the ashes to pollute the land from which the elephants grazed. It took naught three fortnights for the beasts to roar and ravage, burn and gnaw, explode with a fury of damned hatred. Fangs grew large and spines erupted from their binding flesh and skin. Soon, horned, monstrous beasts began to prowl the new land, killing and maiming all who would dare gaze upon them. Their reign was terrifying and many tales were woven of their tenacious desire of death and destruction; how not even boats were spared from their murderous intent. Indeed, the spirit of the fallen demon Overzealous Code was pleased, for his offspring could continue what he could not.

But the great maker was not blind to these actions and through careful deliberation and long nights of toil, He Whose Keys Make What Is remade the land. A great purge passed through the tainted lands and many of the cursed beasts were felled and captured. The great maker then cast the now-immortal souls of the foul creatures into new bodies, bodies he created specifically to contain their murderous ability. For he devised that the greatest punishment for the demonic offspring was none other than the inability to satisfy their bloodlust.

And so the great maker Whose Keys Make What Is cast the elephant into the body of a fish, and the fish was named a carp, and the carp was cast into water where it may not trouble another innocent soul. And a new elephant was remade, this time in the proper image. But the demon, Overzealous Code, was intelligent and creative. His coils managed to trick the great maker into error and the souls of the elephants began to emerge through their prisons. The fish bred fast and once again begin to wreck havoc through any civilization that dares position itself within range of water. Even now, more and more hapless individuals fall to the blood-soaked jaws of the malignant lifeform.

And though it would be awhile more before the great maker Whose Keys Make What Is can deal fully with the demon and his children, he has bestowed gifts upon the inhabitants of his world. Devices of divine property, the crossbow was forged and passed into the hands of the dwarves and the bow to the elves, the two founding races who then, whether through war or trade, passed it on to the kobolds, the goblins, and the humans. Created 6 breaths long and 2 arms wide, the crossbow and its variant is balanced on one shoulder with one hand supporting it underneath in the front and one holding it firm to the body. A strong plate that shields the face and upper body is mounted close to the front end of the device and a hole from which ammunition is placed into at the other end. It fires holy bolts one arm long and a hand wide, fired four at a time and when fired, they seek out and close in on their target as if being led by wire.

And so, by arming your militia with the device that was handed down by the great maker himself, you shall defeat the evil foes that wreck your settlement and then you shall be free to please him in every way you can. So it was spoken, so it shall be.

Galciv is a boring turnbased strategy game. What is Sins of a Solar Empire? The site is annoyingly vague.

Sins of a Solar Empire = Galactic Civs III, well kinda, it has improved much :P

What?? No! How do you even make that connection?

Books / Re: The worst book you've ever read

Colony Fleet by Susan R. Matthews

Ye Gods, did that book piss me off. It had potential up until the point of where it was written by a woman.

The beginning was actually not half bad, but the middle and the especially the end just... I can't even articulate how bad it was. The only thing that had me get all the way through it was the fact that I pretty much have to finish a book I start... Speaking of which, I regret to this day starting War and Peace ;)

I have to disagree with this wholeheartedly. It's possibilities for abuse are mind-boggling.

My solution is much more elegant and inspiring: Require the user to validate that they're over 18!

And none of that: "You're 18, right?" "Er... Sure, I'm Eig**Voice Cracks*ghteen!

Exactly, I'm mostly sick of WWII games. The only reason I would pick up a CoD5 set in WWII would be if:
A) You don't play as an American soldier. American spy, however... /evil laugh
B) You can play a good chunk of the game as either a German or Japanese soldier.
C) The vast majority of the game takes place on the Eastern Front. US/British front is boring at this point.
D) Alternate History! Nazi's are invading New York!!! :o !

Items seem to be able to handle a bit of being tossed around, so I will also put my money on 'destroyed walls, intact statue'. :)
