Special Test on Monday

Zhoom and Minimal need your help testing the new game features! Join us for a VERY special testing session and be the first to run a AQ Worlds quest! I will be updating the news here from Thailand while Zhoom and Minimal run the show from Tampa and Philadelphia. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? <smiles>

Thailand: Meeting a famous Director!
Today I had the honor of meeting one of Thailand’s top A-list directors, Nonzee Nimibutr. Sitting next to him as he effortlessly conducted a cast and crew of over 80 through complicated scenes with moving cameras and… OK… I just have to say, this was just the most impressive thing I have ever seen! I really wish you could have been with me. Nonzee has directed a number of motion pictures, music videos, and at least one TV show winning many director awards including “The most promising director in Asia” and “Best Asian Film”. The project I saw today was a 1970s Bangkok gangster show. He has an entire 4 story (I think) building for the show with a different set crafted into each room. They had a truck outside providing power to all of their equipment… cables ran everywhere through the building. Nonzee sat at a small TV with his producer (I accidentally stole the producers chair.) and staff on the top floor as cables ran down to the camera-men who slid along metal dollys with their lenses aimed at the cast of VERY beautiful actresses and nervous extras. The actors were so cool… if only there was martial arts in our gangster movies back home! How is it that every day here keeps topping the one before it? Even their toilet truck was the coolest thing I have ever seen! (Well, maybe not the coolest thing ever.. but it was very clean.) Yes, this trip has been life changing and inspirational…. to say the least!

Player: So, Artix… WHAT exactly are you doing in Thailand again?
Artix: Actually I am here to….
Player: … and you cannot use the word undead!
Artix: Nevermind…

Common Thai phrase of the day
Nan man kanom chai mai?
That was pudding… right?

This looks really good!
