Quote from: Emily Care on October 27, 2005, 11:36:33 AMHey there,From the orders I'm getting, looks like lots of folks in Europe are discovering Breaking the Ice. I'm sure Ben & Eero's trek across Finland for the Polaris tour may be responsible, as well as the attentiveness of folks in the EU to innovative role playing found here, at rpg.net and elsewhere. I'm thinking of this because there's some more actual play of Breaking the Ice on the Mandragon role playing forums from the Netherlands. Apparently someone is using BtI to flesh out how a pair of characters in their Nobilis personages--though it's not quite clear from the Babelfish translation I got. (If anybody knows a better online translation site, I'd love to hear about it.)
QuoteRemko responds in the thread, so maybe he can enlighten us more if he's about.
QuoteHet idee voor deze chat-RPG begon ongeveer zo:"Wat als we BtI gebruiken voor de relaties tussen Nobilis-personages uit te werken?""Nah, zijn we al te lang mee bezig. Dat gaat niet werken.""Ok, wat dan met personages voor Dogma XP?"Wat? Drie dates tussen twee personages.Waar? Een Multiversum ruwweg gebaseerd op Planescape waar Dogma's de plaats hebben ingenomen van ideeën.

Quote from: RemkoJust as a little thing of knowledge, Mandragon is a roleplaying forum from Belgium, but in the Flanders, Belgium, people also speak a dialect of Dutch. Actually, In the Flanders, people speak Dutch, French and German, because those are their neighboring countries.
Quote from: RemkoMy reactionExactly that rule is the thing I like about Breaking the Ice. It really shows the feeling you get in when you would be in that situation yourself. When you try to do something extreme, and it fails, you get frustrated and you'll try even more.
Quote from: JasperN. on October 30, 2005, 09:59:55 AMThanks, Emily. I´ve noticed the mistake myself, and Frank T. also spotted that one. I´m not sure how it got in there, though. My original draft has the right name in it. I´ll try and see whether they´ll run a correction. I wouldn´t want to rob Vincent Baker of his fame. Btw, do you speak German, or are you using a translation tool?
