This is a plate from the story. It refers to one of the original ideas written around 1998. Although most of the plots and scenario have changed, this and the Glen scene (the opening of the main arc) have remained almost untouched.
This plate was the first experiment we set up for the saturday morning coders sessions. It's a side view platform game. We usually make top down scenes for our rpg. This was to experiment with the idea of sub levels within the 2d universe.
The steram-punk graphics are used in the main game and are from a sample set we bought on steam. They make a great contrast to the other cartoon like sprites we use to represent the hobbits.
He watched her pour into the measure and thence into the jug rich white milk, not hers. Old shrunken paps. She poured again a measureful and a tilly. Old and secret she had entered from a morning world, maybe a messenger. She praised the goodness of the milk, pouring it out.

A semi improv , combining live playing and deconstructing of prerecorded material, Lisa, Rob and Craig meet up and jam while enjoying a cup of tea and belgian waffles. The music is a mix of soundscapes, beats and breaks, Techbot's mixtapes and whatever the trio come up with on the spot.
Sometimes we record the set and use it as the material to be deconstructed the following session. Heavily influenced by William Burroughs, ColdCut and their Solid Steel Show, Future Sound of London's: ISDN transmissions and Amon Tobin's foley influenced work.
These allow us to experiment with these javascipt libraries in isolated blogs in a drupal environment before we attempt tobuild an rpg game around the cms.
But how to get there was the rub. For the nonce he was rather nonplussed but inasmuch as the duty plainly devolved upon him to take some measures on the subject he pondered suitable ways and means during which Stephen repeatedly yawned.
The subliminal kid moved in seas of disembodied sound- He then spaced here and there and instaff opposite mirrors and took movies each bar so that the music and talk is at arbitary intervals and shifted bars -- And he also had recorders in tracks and moving film mixing arbitary intervals and agents moving with the word and image of tape recorders-- So he set up waves and his agents with movie swirled through all the streets of imaige and brought back streets in music from the city and poured aztec Empire and Ancient rome-- Commuter or Chariot Driver could not control their word dust drifte
Silk of the kine and poor old woman, names given her in old times. A wandering crone, lowly form of an immortal serving her conqueror and her gay betrayer, their common cuckquean, a messenger from the secret morning. To serve or to upbraid, whether he could not tell: but scorned to beg her favour.
—It is indeed, ma'am, Buck Mulligan said, pouring milk into their cups.
