I feel sick and stressed and anxious.

Sorry for the delay. DMing took a lot out of me, and before I knew it, it was midweek and I hadn’t posted a single danged thing.

I’ll queue up some posts, probably about Dragon Hatcher today.

I’ve been steamrollered with good news today~

First off, the game I ordered from jjgames finally exists according to the postal service, if this turns out be legitimate, I’ll be getting a fair few old gamecube games through them.

Secondly, Gamestop informed me that they had Dokapon Kingdom. For those unaware, this RPG/MarioParty/Monopoly mashup is the greatest party game in existance, and sells for 200$ on ebay. I got it for only 30$ today~ I AM ECSTATIC!

Hi There! I've been studying genetics for a while now, and think I have an some sort of answer to your question. It would depend on how frequently homologous recombination occurs between the homologues at that location. For example, if the eye colour locus was close to the hair colour locus, then the alleles would rarely be shuffled. Hair and eye colour's a hard one, though, because there are various loci and epistatic factors having influence. Does that help at all?

Yes, thank you, it does. It was just an example, I plan to make use of actual genetics as a basis for a videogame involving Dragons, but I need to be sure about my understanding of genetics, first.

To me, my ability to create is a sign of my well being. When I’m at my worst, I can’t create more than the most cliched things, and often not even those. This is why I’m always busy, because it assures me that I’m alright.

Looking for some info from the science side of tumblr. My various searches have yielded no results, probably because I can’t phrase it properly.

Do chromosomes always have the same genes attached?

I’ll try to elaborate… Say, for example, eye color and hair color were found on the same chromosome (and drastically simplified). During the creation of haploids, would the chromosome with the Blue Eye allele always coexist with the Blond Hair allele? Or would the Brown Eye allele be found with Blond Hair just as often?

I hope this makes sense….

If you are writing any book about the end of the world, what you are really writing about is what’s worth saving about it.

More posts on the City of Knox will be delayed for a bit. I’ve been asked to guest DM a game of Dungeons and Dragons this weekend, and I’m working hard to get ready in time for tomorrow.

City of Knox - Story

Probably the biggest distinction from Majora’s Mask is the story of City of Knox. Whereas Majora’s had an impending doom you had to avoid, City of Knox has a pursuit of freedom from the time loop. Along with the symbolism of Night versus Day, and the various symbolic activites of each day of the festival.

Warning, this is a long one.

City of Knox - Aesthetic

I’ve been notoriously against the modern gaming trend to make things realistic, and I stand in staunch opposition to the desaturated method of  making a game darker.

But, a measure of drama does need to be in place for every game, and as I reference the gameplay of Majora’s Mask, so do I reference how it managed to carry a dramatic unease, despite its bright colors.
