Vive La France!

Feb 23, 2006 five past seven pm

Because Clayton and I are international jet-setters, we'll be heading to Paris next week for meetings, and if all goes well, we'll have redefined the phrase "Ugly Americans".

I'll probably have some time for a Paris-based Adventure Game meet-up.  I'll need at least 3 people there in order to successfully pull my "I forgot my wallet" bit when it comes time to pay the bill, so Contact me if you're interested.  Hopefully we can get something arranged quickly.  Mostly likely it will need to be on the weekend (best bet), or in the evening on the 6th or 7th.

If you're a Paris based Publisher interested in talking to us about our RPG/Adventure project, drop me a line.  Until then, we'll be in the bar.

I'm an Aussie based non-Publisher interested in talking to you about your RPG/Adventure project.  Does that count?

That depends on how much money you have.

Enjoy France.

Hang on Ron...

As an Englishman who was forced to endure French as a second language at school, I've noted a fault with your translation: Isn't "viva" spanish?

It should be "Vive la France" - better get that vocabulary sorted; the French don't take kindly to foreigners even when one gets the language right !

Exactly! This is the first thing I noticed when seeing that title. It's crazy how many people think "viva" is French. It's "Vive la France", "Vive la revolution", and "Viva la revoluci�n".

I can't spell in English, and you guys are shocked I can't spell in French!

Your RSS feed is still messed up. ;)

Ahh, I hope you'll have a great meeting in France. Paris is a bit too far away for a casual trip from the Netherlands, but of course, we've had our share last year =)

Are we expecting something like  "�le de singe 2.5 :  le tr�sor de Disneyland" ? ... or is it a stupid title after all? :)

Bon Voyage Ron :)

Oh dear, THE game adventure man in Paris !
Can we come if we are just stoopid Monkey & Tentacle fans ?

Posted by TheSmashingPenguin on Feb 24, 2006 eight am

Yes, yes, can we ?

dammit, I might be going to Paris next weekend for a completely unrelated reason (alcoholic in nature) , and now I'm going to have to think of an excuse not to meet you (again) to save face in case of having to say 'how have you been?' and other such nonsensical pleasantries, unlike at the london meet up when I said nonsensical things like 'what toothpaste do you use?'
Hope you get your deal.

"the French don't take kindly to foreigners even when one gets the language right !"

In fact, the French don't take kindly to foreigners who have prejudice against French...

Ha, ha! Touch�.

maybe we can catch him on Germany's world cup

Posted by HeyCool on Feb 25, 2006 five to four pm

How about instead of three other people, just one person with nine other people?

Rpg adventure is the best, what is more perfect than Zelda or Hero's quest?

Bring me some bread. Make sure that it's still fresh when you send it to me.
