I suppose “impossible” would be true from his perspective. ..and no, I don’t think anyone will catch that reference. Ahem.
There was a line I wanted to put in that ultimately didn’t make it for reasons of space and flow – I wanted Gilnid to drop a line saying something like “If you don’t get back to work, I’ll have Sneed use you for testing his Shredder!”, just to give a sense of.. well.. interaction, I suppose. Oddly enough, while Gilnid is probably the most forgettable encounter in the entirety of Deadmines, being overshadowed by the rifle-wielding, golem-summoning goblin minions, he’s one of the few that the Sourcebooks actually elaborate on. I didn’t want to pass by him – part for that reason, part because it gave Tiny a chance to do something in a combat situation.
And yeah, I know I’ve been quiet lately; I’ve been busy, plenty of things I’ve had to get done – some with Beyond the Tree, in fact.
Edit: Probably no update on sunday (23’rd), I’m afraid – somehow failed to sleep the night beforehand, so I doubt I’ll be awake enough to actually put something seeming even remotely sensible together.
