Super nerds always want to correct you. Leave the tiniest detail out, use the wrong word, mispronounce something, they’ll be on you like a skritt on shiny. Take for instance the pronunciation of bookah. Now I could not care less about its pronunciation. However, friends in vent insist that I say boo-kah instead of book-ah. Sigh.
The only thing worse I think would have to be an asura advice columnist.
The article provides a litany of advice on how to keep grawl out of your cabbage patch, how to improve your lemonade, how to improve your love life and why you shouldn’t hang out with charr.
I asked the following quetion of Hey Bookah but it wasn’t answered.
Dear Hey Bookah! Should i put my crystals in a parallel pattern or serial format for my array? I’m worried about my enchantment buffers!
In the spirit of things I’ll re-post my two favourite asura jokes.
What did the asura call the human science tome? Bookah Jokes.
What did the asura call the great work of human poetry? Bookah limericks.
The Hey Bookah column is pretty good example of Arenanet’s sense of humour, but the other blog post today is a great example of the depth of detail they go into when designing things.
Matt Barrett talks about how he goes about designing asura environments, another treat for artists.
Our designs for asuran architecture draw heavily from ancient Hindu temples: massive stone columns, intricate, masterful carvings, and a sense of being inside a mountain.
Anyway, that is it for today, tomorrow we get asura background chatter. Should be fun.
