The end of Elrond

March 2, 2010 1 comment

I’ve decided to wrap up the story of Elrond with a few screenshots I snapped before I stopped writing that little story-based AAR. I partly ran out of steam but mostly I wasn’t sure anyone was reading the damn thing so it became more work than it was worth!

Even so, I was quite happy with the construction I was working on and thought others might enjoy my diabolical scheme! Read on for some cult compound fun! Read more…

Floor 13 – AAR

December 4, 2009 2 comments

A short but sweet AAR for an old conspiracy classic, Floor 13, is available over at VideoGameInvective. Steve thought you all might like to have a look, and don’t worry, it will only take a few minutes to read as it turns out Steve is rubbish at impersonating the Illuminati!

Conflict: MEPS – AAR/Lets Play

October 29, 2009 Comments off

conflict middle east political simulatorServant Corps over on the Dwarf Fortress forums pointed me to an AAR/Lets Play that he completed using an ancient wargame called “Conflict: Middle East Political Simulator“, or “CONMEPS” as it is known by its fans.  The summary info from Wikipedia is that:

Conflict: Middle East Political Simulator, often known as ConfMEPS or simply Conflict, is a turn-based government simulation game. It was designed by David J Eastman and published by Virgin Interactive in 1990. It was available for DOS, Atari ST, and Amiga (with extended graphics).

The game is set in 1997. The prime minister of Israel has just been assassinated, leaving the player to run the country as the new prime minister. The player’s objective is to cause the defeat of the neighboring four states, either by invasion (not necessarily by Israel, as the other states can and do invade each other) or political destabilization.

It’s a great read and ends, well, predictably badly for everyone involved! But if you’re interested in good old games, as Servant Corps is, or just love a good war/political game, I suggest you go check it out!

Sims-3-AAR-Elrond-6Dear Diary,

I had a wonderful idea today! I decided to get the girls to head out and promote Simtology through a little busking and chatting to people in the park. I call it “Flirty Fishing”

Everything has been going swell in the past few weeks. At least, everything was great until the police turned up…

The Diary of Elrond Hubbtard 8 – Growth

July 4, 2009 3 comments

Sims-3-AAR-Elrond-4Dear Diary,

I’ve been working very hard with all of my friends on developing their understanding of Dinonetics and the advanced processing I’ve revealed to them. And now, weeks later, I’m pleased to announce complete success! All of my students have achieved the state of CLEAN!

To celebrate, I told them something important. I had decided to call this new spiritual movement of ours Simtology and that they were now ambassadors of Simtology. But, before they could be completely ascendant in this role they needed to leave their past behind them and to embrace their new identities. To do this I threw a surprise for them! We all went down to the town hall and, with their details already filled out, I had them officially change their names. They all have the last name “PureBeing” now, demonstrating to the world their specialness!

The Diary of Elrond Hubbtard 7 – Resolution

June 25, 2009 1 comment

Sims-3-AAR-Elrond-1Dear Diary,
Well, a few things came to a head in the past few days. I was working on my next training levels (more on that some other time!) when Bella came rushing in to the bedroom and told me that something was going on with Geoffrey in the study room. She thought it must have had something to do with his wife, who she thinks has been skyping him regularly (I prefer that people don’t use their mobile phones at home. It distracts them from their spiritual studies). I headed upstairs and confronted him.

Sims-3-AAR-Elrond-6Dear Diary,

It was Bella that started it. She came home one day dressed entirely in white, with just a splash of red. She said it represented her fresh start in life, with the white showing her new purity and the red demonstrating the fire of her Passion for the study of Dinonetics.
