Some old snippets from a prompt on [ profile] lrpdrabbles a while back - what does your character's soul look like?

I haven't done this for Potch because it's actually had this done in-game at Maelstrom, and it's more amusing to ask for in character (and also even less comprehensible than the ones below).

So, instead, have some for my CUTT characters.

Short vignette I wrote as a "what happens next" for a CUTT character I recently retired (Sophie). Mild swearing.

I have a sword!

To be precise, it's in a big cardboard box propped up against my desk at work. I don't want to take it out because otherwise I won't be able to get it back into the box to go home, and I'd really rather not be carrying a sword on the bus, LARP-safe or not. So it stays in the box.

As the auction link above says, it's a 50" Eldritch katana. I have precisely one Treasure Trap character who can (a) wield it without exploding their mana everywhere messily and (b) do more than superficial damage IC when wielding it. :)

I'm also going to need a back scabbard for it, probably, because my legs are not long enough to keep it off the ground if it's in a drop scabbard off my belt.

(For anyone who was worried, this is indeed a LARP sword - it's made out of carbon-fibre or fibreglass, then foam, then latex. The worst you can get from this sword if someone whacks you with it is a bruise, and that only if they really hit you hard. :)

Good stuff and not-so-good stuff, I guess.

First, the not-so-good stuff: I tried to get horizontal span working on my graphics card, which sent it back into the death spiral of "boot Windows -> change to horizontal span while booting Windows -> reboot computer -> boot Windows" that happened before. It does this when I try to reinstall the nVidia drivers, too. So I think I'll get a new graphics card.

Then the good stuff: I'm nearing the end of Kingdom Hearts. Okay, I suppose that's not all that good, as it's been a fairly fun game, if a little short (I'm at just over 30 hours now, which I class as 'short'). I'm stuck on the fight against SPOILER ). He's quick, strong, and bloody difficult to dodge in his last attack form because by the time I've healed and can hit him, he's semi-invincible again.

More spoilery wittering, mostly about pretty guys. )

I'd have made a Kingdom Hearts LJ icon by this point, but I'm in 800x600 with 16 colours at the moment, and not many pictures display well in 16 colours.

[ profile] duncanneko has mentioned that there may be generic SVGA drivers for Windows. Does anyone know more about this? All I've managed to dig up is the generic VGA display adapter that you get when you don't have any other drivers installed.
