I've been on a CRPG kick lately and the current game I'm working on is Tyranny, and I'm LOVING IT. The idea of being the occupying "evil" empire after the war is already over, just trying to gain full control and maintain peace is really interesting. The gameplay is CRPG gameplay, it's "one of those", but it turns out Obsidian is good at making them.

I think it would be great to see a GBE playthrough of Divinity: Original Sin 2. Alex playing through a Civ campaign would be my second choice.

The current redesign is going to be like every other redesign on every other website. We are going to struggle with it for a little while, but in six months to a year, we aren't even going to remember what the old site looked like.

I probably should have posted a more detailed itinerary before we took off, but I suppose I just had an American level of naivete about what's going on throughout the rest of the world?

Like I said though, my time in Western Europe was lovely, and the people were perfectly charming. Might wait a little while before visiting the east again, though.

Hey y'all. So I just got back to the states. The trip really didn't go all that well. We didn't have problems through most of Western Europe, one small run-in with some drunk guys in Italy but other people around stepped in and defused the situation. Our first issue was in Hungary. My group was leaving a temple in Budapest when a group of guys started following us around yelling at us, this went on for ten or so minutes before they started throwing garbage and rocks at us. No one really seemed to care, including a few officers we ran past. It was a similar story in Poland, where harassing us seemed like it was just a local pastime. It was in Poland where we decided to just take the loss, and get tickets to Israel, where we spent the rest of the time we had set scheduled for our trip.

Well, that's how it went, sorry for the bummer post.

Thanks for chiming in everyone! We decided as a group it would probably still be better if we wear hats over our kippah, and hide SoD jewelry, but it's good to hear that might not be quite as bad as the news is making it seem.

Hey y'all. So I'm planning a trip starting in France and zigzagging through the continent, ending in Estonia. I have most of the details planned out, but as I'm watching and reading news from the countries I'll be going through I've noticed a disturbing trend of antisemitism that has me concerned. I, and everyone I'm traveling with, are from a northern state in the US where walking around in public with kippot or tzitzit isn't a problem, so it isn't something we thought all that much about at first, but reading about incidences, particularly violent ones, have my group pretty worried about what we might encounter. I was just hoping that someone might be able to give me an idea about how much of an issue this really seems to be in Europe at the moment.

It's always seemed like a delicious idea, but keeping kosher has always kept me from trying it. I generally just use salt, pepper, and olive oil.
