Beyond Dominia: The Role Playing Mill: Two on Xidharai.....and one on posting pictures....

First, I'd like to know what kind of civilization Xidharai is, if Rhisiart wouldn't mind telling.... Oriental? Middle-Eastern? Medieval European? What? Just wanted to know, since I'm working on figuring out what kinds of civilizations will be on the south-eastern continent(the one below the eastern continent).

Second, how do you post a friggin' picture?!?!?! I've tried several times in responses to my earlier post where I asked how to post pictures, and every time, after I browse through my files and pick the one I want and click OK, I hit the Upload button and my computer sits there for like 3 minutes or so, with the status bar saying 'web site found, waiting for reply...' and then it goes to the 'Page cannot be displayed' error message. I just don't get it. I want to post a picture of my additions to Phaema, but either some problem with the mill's server or whatever or some problem with my god-forsaken piece-of-!@*# computer won't let me do it. Help please!!! *gets down on knees and sobs*

E-mail them to me and I'll post them. I don't know what's going wrong with you but it sounds like you're doing everything right and it's simply timing out. I'll try to get them posted but you need to get them to me by tomorrow, as I'll be heading home this weekend and don't know how much time I'll have to deal with it there, as I'll be wanting to do other things.

Thanks. I've already sent the e-mail.

By /\/\ist Phantom on Thursday, August 10, 2000 - 05:09 am:

Eh, never mind. For some reason the e-mail failed to go through. You sure that g***g@m*** is right? Hmmm...

It's only been my e-mail for the past three years and still is today...

Well, after upteen attempts, I've found that the bitmap is simply too large. After figuring out how to zip it, I sent it to ya through my yahoo mail account. Outlook Express just doesn't want to work for me.....

Hopefully it'll get to you, and hopefully you have Winzip or whatever.

That would probably be why right there. I'm pretty sure it only lets you post .jpg's or .gif's. Now I have to convert it too...egad.

(Just got back from GenCon, so please excuse my silence over the past week or so)

Now's as good a time as any to reveal this: it's a moot point. I have decided that Xidharai is simply to interesting for Phaema. Hmmm...let me explain. Phaema already has a highly developed history, culture etc. I don't feel as if I have much breathing room when it comes to developing new cultures. Therefore I have decided to take Xidharai and develop it elsewhere. Perhaps I'll do so on my own site; perhaps I'll separate it from any remaining influence that is not my own and write a pen-and-paper RPG centered on it. I haven't decided yet.

I shall have to think of a new conclusion for the Eastern King storyline. Perhaps a Celtic-style empire. Perhaps something like the ancient Americas. I don't know yet. (Xidharai would originally have been a psuedo-Oriental culture.)
