    It will make your heart happy I bet to see the story.

    Firefly/Serenity

    You are not the only one with such a cunning cap.
  3. I have probably read the first three or four books of the series like seven times. The rest probably three. I always start reading and then something comes up. But I have to start back at the beginning because I like the whole story in a line.

    Firefly/Serenity

    Anyone in here a fan of Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity? I actually didn't find Firefly until about two years after the show actually went off the air. But boy was I hooked after I got hold of the complete series on DVD. This has to be some of the best written and funniest dialouge I have ever seen. I so recommend that if you havn't seen this, you should and do it fast. Heck just ask for it for the holidays. Sad to think we may never see more Firefly again. But at least we will be getting a new story from Joss next year that is part of the story. It will be in comic form. Also, if you have not heard about it already there is a fan produced documentary out there that is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is called "Done the Impossible: The Fans Tale of Firefly and Serenity." It is a great tribute to how the fans of Firefly were able to bring it from its ashes to its own full length motion picture. If you like Firefly and Serenity, I think this documentary is a must have. You can find out more information on it at www.donetheimpossible.com If you just want to buy it you can get it off their website or you can search for Done the Impossible on amazon.com as well. I also really love the soundtrack, I think it played an integral part of the story. As such I own it as well. So I think the complete Firefly story collection would have to be: Firefly: Complete Series - DVD Those Left Behind - Graphic Novel Serentiy - DVD New Graphic Novel (in comic form at first) Done the Impossible - DVD Done the Impossible - CD Also sitting out there is the Serenity paper based RPG which has gotten some pretty good reviews. It has a new expansion book called Into the Black. See told you I was obsessed.
  5. Why rent when you are just going to like them so much you will want to buy them after you rent them. Save the $10 to rent the set and just buy it.

    im curious

    Such an evil part of the internet. You can do one thing one day to completely block them out and then about a week later they have broken down and changed their entrance patterns. Boo on bots.

    Where are you from?

    I am from the nation of Texas....wait it isn't a nation? Funny, everyone there says it is. But yes Texas and the best part of it, Austin.
  8. Good ole Christmas music from launch.com. It is scary what comes on there sometimes.
  9. Sorry to wait so long to answer. But to answer your question, no you do not need to connect with the Java browser applet. From any telnet application you can connect to www.mirrorsmud.net port 2222. Most users who are past the telnet stage choose to use an application like Zmud (www.zuggsoft.com) which is designed to help basic commands and movement in a mud environment. Hope that helps.
  10. Love the show and totally recommend it.
  11. I will definately check it out. Always love roleplay and I am always looking for quality over quantity. I have to say that if you want live interaction with people from across the globe in a realtime Wheel of Time environment you might want to check out Wheel of Time MUD (www.wotmud.org). They are a text based mud, probably the largest WoT based mud in existence, but are not too large.
  12. http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=1&id=37350 With one book left in the series, Sword of Truth looks like it is going to get a treatment from an established director. Phttphhbbt. I want my Eye of the World miniseries first.

    Firefly/Serenity

    Wow, nice to see some fans out there. And don't worry, once you get your hands on the DVD of the series, get through the first disc and you will be hook as ever. I would definately say watch the series before the movie, because after all the movie is set after the series. When I first saw it, I was like oh great, more Star Trek/Babylon5 scifi. But oh was I mistaken. There are no superlasers or aliens. They put it in space but gave it a western motif. The stories told are character driven and afterwards you just sit there and go....Wow, I want more.

    Firefly/Serenity

    Was just curious if there were any Browncoats here at Dragonmount or some who like Firefly and Serenity?
  15. I had some of the Terry Goodkind series, never got around to reading them, but my friends did and they all said the same thing, it was a bit too disturbing even though well written.

    Your first time

    It was just after Lord of Chaos came out. I was dating a girl who enjoyed the series. I had never heard of it. Needless to say, it stuck.
  17. *edit* Back and running strong. And thanks for the good wishes. I just enjoy the Wheel of Time and being able to experience the world RJ created in additional ways than the book.
  18. Enchalada Cassarole (not so much a dessert but edible at all hours) 2 cans Enchalada Sauce 1 bag shredded cheese 1 lb ground beef or turkey Crushed Red Pepper 20 corn tortillas 1) Brown 1 lb ground beef. Spice as desired (a taco seasoning, or I use my own mixture of Cumin, Coriander, Chili Powder, Onion Power, Minced Garlic, Red Pepper, Black Pepper). Drain grease. 2) Take a 10 inch round casserole dish. Lightly cover bottom of dish with a layer of sauce. 3) Create a layer of tortillas on the bottom. 4) Layer the top of tortillas with a new layer of sauce, cheese and about 1/2 of your meat. 5) Add another layer of tortillas. 6) Layer the top of tortillas with sauce, cheese and rest of meat. 7) Add final layer of tortillas. 8) Top with sauce and remainder of cheese. 9) Cover and bake @ 350 degree for 30-40 minutes or until cheese is beginning to brown. 10) Remove from oven, serve immediately. Garnish with crushed red pepper. Tricks of the trade: This recipe is very customizable to how you like it. If you like it a little more dry, don't put as much sauce. Some like more cheese. I really like this with ground venison.
  19. To start a new character, here are some basic steps... 1) Log into the mud. You can do this through telnet, a mud client like zmud (zuggsoft.com) or use the applet link on the Mirrors homepage. 2) Create a free account. You will be prompted through this. 3) Once your account is created, you will be given a list of things to do. One of those things is create a character. Choose the appropriate command and be guided through character generation. 4) Once your character is created, you simply have to choose the play command and enter the weave. All new characters will start in a training area where you can learn a bit about the game and its mechanics. I highly recommend you do the quests there and hunt for a bit to level up your character. Players there are cool, if you need help just ask. And something I did not mention earlier is...it is absolutely free and open 24/7. It is live also, so you are interacting with people from around the world. And if anyone has questions, do post, maybe I can help by answering posts.
  20. Should be a fun weekend over on Mirrors. Stop on by and get a new character. You could find yourself leading a clan or two by the end of the weekend.
  21. My recs and probably are repeats of others... Terry Brooks - World of Shannara Dan Brown - Just his four novels George RR Martin - Song of Fire & Ice George Lucas & Chris Claremont - The Shadow Trilogy based off the movie Willow My wife would recommend: Mercades Lackey Anne McCaffrey Robin Hobb Marion Zimmer Bradley Rosalind Miles Gregory Maguire
  22. Hey guys, Long time lurk, first time poster. Thought I would let people know since this is up their alley and mine as well. I need to be more active and I will be. Since this community loves Robert Jordan, the Wheel of Time and the world that has been created. I wanted to let you know about Mirrors of the Wheel MUD. This is a mud (multi user dungeon) that I stumbled across that just totally captured the Wheel of Time atmosphere that Jordan described in the books. When I am there, I feel like I am part of the land that Rand, Mat and Perrin are part of. And I also wanted to let you know because there are a lot of people in this community that enjoy roleplaying in the world that RJ created for us. Mirrors of the Wheel mud is dedicated to this roleplay and encourages it players to help develop this atmosphere. There are a lot of great players who enjoy roleplaying everything from a White Tower novice to a Child of the Light to a Defender of the Stone to an Aiel Stone Dog to an Armorer. And it just rocks. To be honest, it is set up so that anyone can easily become a huge influence in the atmosphere, not just the people who are there currently. Now it is a game of sorts as well for people seeking that angle. But rewards and advancement come from all areas, hunting, roleplaying, questing. And there are over 50 clans to join, all nations for character backgrounds and a great channeling system. They also have a unique combat system and blademaster system and also the Game of Houses. I just find this place great fun. And wanted to invite you to share that fun. Here is the info... www.mirrorsmud.net telnet www.mirrorsmud.net port 2222 The people are great there and welcome newcomers with open arms and help. Come by, try it out. Ask questions and don't just leave once you arrive. So the place really combines an area for all people...the roleplayer, the questor, the adventurer, the explorer, the hunter, the player killer (within the roleplay of the character), the hack n slasher. All are welcome and can easily find their place. Zaren PS I recommend starting with the race wetlander for a new character. It is just a bit easier to learn and get help with when starting out.
