Re: English pronouns (a question to native speakers)

I like using 'they', too, but only when referring to an unspecified entity (like 'one', or even 'the student' when used as a sort of collective for all students). Wouldn't it be unusual to see 'they' referring to a particular person? For example: “Rabbit sat in a clearing. They thought about the ni...

Re: Sacred Sand [BxB] [Fantasy]

Your games will just get better from here with each new one being another learning experience which will improve your skills. The typos were just minor flaws in a good game. All the things you didn't do this time, you'll be able to do for the next time, or if not then for the game after that. Rhael ...

It usually strikes me as clinical, cold, and dehumanising. However, you're not referring to a human, you're referring to Rabb...

Re: Sacred Sand [BxB] [Fantasy]

I've lurked around here on and off for years, peeking in sometimes in the sort of vain hope that perhaps one day I'd get my act together and make a piece of interactive fiction of some variety or other. Anyway playing your game finally made me break down and get an account just so I could comment on...
