  1. Small up date since the full version just came out. I had played the game up to the last mission which was not available and waited for the full release to complete the game. But decided to play a new game in stead since the game is only a 30-50 hour game. I was glad I did the full version is a lot more polished with added features, additional quests, some re-balancing. They also made the game darker in it has a contrast problem. This can be fixed on the gamma setting. I am about 2/3rds thru my second play enjoying the game a lot.

  3. That is true, but the context was different and for the most part the couple of words you are thinking about were not considered swear words. For example "king's gibbets" was exceptionally crude and is almost never seen because it could get you executed. My mother, a biologist, gave an entire hour lecture on the F-word in the 1980s, showing how ridiculous the use had become during that decade. The use is so common in prisons that whole sentences are composed of nothing but that one word. We had an hour lecture in linguistics on this weirdness. Yes it is still crude, but the overuse is making it lose its crudeness. Today it is a class symbol. When a crude word becomes common people have to resort to something else to still be crude. BTW Even in the 1950's the F-word was only used as "intercourse." I think the mutation into a swear word was some undercurrent trying to embarrass people.

  4. The most common swear words used today have been in use since probably around the middle ages in one form or another.

  5. ...Busy. Yeah, sorry for vanishing for awhile. I got swept up in some projects and before I knew it, it was summer. I was on a podcast! And I have another one booked for next month. Both of them are literature podcasts. Some other stuff literature related too, that I don't think I can really talk about until they're a thing. I also have been running Numenera on Roll20. I had two groups but we're down to one now. I also finished my DnD campaign! Busy, busy!
