I haven't been up to much.

I've been playing a lot of Twilight Heroes lately. Those of you who are familiar with the Kingdom of Loathing will be aware of the basic play mechanics of this simple, browser-based RPG, except Twilight Heroes is... well... worse in some ways. It's brand new, so it's far less polished, the writing is inconsistant in tone (sometimes it wants to be serious, but sometimes it wants to be a comedy), and all the content can be experienced within a week.

That being said, where Kingdom of Loathing is old and bloated and very hard to play these days unless you've been playing it forever, Twilight Heroes is young and sexy and still being made at a very basic level, On the one hand, this leads to a frustrating lack of polish, and very quickly you run out of stuff to do, but on the other hand, there's obvious development, very quick reaction time to suggestions and complaints, and you get to be in on the ground floor of something fairly awesome. So... that's what I've been up to.
