The road ahead

Exit: 2014

I’ve worked with Sword of Moonlight alone, full-time, for three or four years. The pace of the work has been brisk, and exact, and one should not discount the sheer scale of the job. I’ve done so for one reason, and one reason alone. Because From Software dared to make manifest the single greatest thing I can imagine; to be sure, the best idea ever. And if I must make it so, then so be it.

Today there is a new SomEx release to be announced. But first I have to explain that from here on out I am going to have a more somber tone. As I have for the last time been roundly mistreated by people who speak of Sword of Moonlight online in English. As such I’ve found myself hereby bereft of good company. And without a shred of camaraderie it would be undue, frankly strange, to act as if there were more. So lighthearted/upbeat banter is out. Matter of fact status updates are in.

Until something changes anyway. Sword of Moonlight is far from ready for the general public, so I expect to be working alone for however long it takes. As far as I know no one else is working towards improvement. I will now make an effort to reach out to Japanese fans that I know of, to maybe build a bridge to those I don’t. And soon I am going to break ground on a new Sword of Moonlight Forge website to complement the Sword of Moonlight Press. The Forge will cater to the needs of any software developers, and facilitate bug/issue tracking.

The new release is, it is the first to improve the lot of Sword of Moonlight’s core tools. This one was two or three months in the making depending on how you count. A great deal of my time was diverted to corresponding with the maintainer of ResEdit in service of Sword of Moonlight. It was time well spent, and truth be told if there was ever an idea bigger than Sword of Moonlight it may well be ResEdit. In one possible future ResEdit handily challenges the supremacy of Microsoft’s crown jewel, and my own bread and butter, its Visual Studio product line…

The musician Lou Reed has died. A legend of the New York rock scene, Reed co-founded The Velvet Underground before going on to a prolific solo career. In his later years, he took part in civil rights and environmental activism along with his wife, the musician and artist Laurie Anderson. In one of his final public appearances last month, Reed discussed the power of music to effect change.

“There’s only one great occupation that can change the world, that’s real rock ‘n’ roll. I believe to the bottom of my heart, the last cell, that rock ‘n’ roll can change everything. And I’m a graduate of Warhol University, and I believe in the power of punk. To this day, I want to blow it up. Thank you.” Lou Reed, 2013~1942

Tool Gets New Release on Life

Exit: Retooled

…In other news, one King’s Field Making Tool gets a new lease on life:

A local townsperson took it upon themself to dust off the long discarded tool and give it a a fresh coat of paint. This follows on our story a year or two ago; the same eager townsperson was regarded mad after claiming the old relic could still be of use to us all. And wouldn’t you know it. Sure enough we had to eat our hats at the county fair later that year. Wasn’t that something? Do you remember when it was wheeled out center stage? No one believed it when that infernal thing got up and went.

Yes of course. We all do. But even so. While there was no doubt it could be made to work. Who has the patience for such contraptions at all in this day and age?! We cried out in unison. These fast times demand no fuss, no muss, don’t you agree we all agreed. You remember that don’t you?

Are you kidding? Of course I do. Who doesn’t? Why they’ll show us they cried right back. And sure enough, it seems that now that’s exactly what’s happened. Well if we are to believe our eyes and ears that is, sense of doubt and what have you, the new “Mark 2″ King’s Field Making Tool has been decked out with all the bells and whistles you could ever dream. And what’s more! It will be on display at the county fair. And what’s more! This time with the blessing of the Arts & Crafts Committee. And I for one know for certain I’ll be there front and center.

Laughs. We’ll all be there, it’s in our contract … Well that’s all the time we have today again today. But before we go. All of us here would like to take a moment to offer the cowed citizens of South North America a heartfelt happy healthcare (and mental care.) for all! And to all a good night.

Hey, that wasn’t… Inaudible.
