In a mouse hole? What a coincidence, you should work on the game then! Maybe on the camera or something... ;)

Welcome to the forums. :) You are about 41 hours away from me ( I am in the US but more east cost) . How's the weather up there? We share some of the same weather hehehe.. though I admit what ya'll get is by far more brutal than we do.

Happy to see a new face on the forums. Ya'll have any unique or cute breeds of mouse up that way? :)

@evilkinggumby: Thank you!
The weather was freezing a few weeks ago (hit -40 C when factoring in windchill) here but it's not that cold now at around -20C... at least for us. The east coast is currently getting the worse weather with the ice storms and power outages.

We don't have many unique types of mice but there are cute ones. We have house mice, deer mice, and field mice.

BTW I love your avatar and signature. Mouse Guard is one of my favourite graphic novels. Actually, it's the book which got me into comics and graphic novels .

Funny you should say that.. My power went out yesterday for most of the day.. lol.. and it was -8 all day *sigh*

But it came back so my house didn't turn into a block or ice nor did my pipes freeze. YAY.

And yes Mouseguard looks pretty kool. I'm actually a bit of a poser in that I haven't read all their books. I originally spotted the set of figurines for the series (i think there was 3 in the set) and got it for a friend that I thought would really like them.I then saw it was related to a graphic novel series, so I got her one of those too and read it while I had it. Then.. life and time took my hand and I totally forgot about it all so I never grabbed copies of the books myself. But I will someday!

Here is a shot of a few of the figurines . they're actually pretty well made!

And here is something neat I spotted lookin for that pic.. so cute. WOuld be fun to have a mouse tavern somewhere in this game! :)

Good thing the power went back on rather quickly in your area. Last I've heard, some places have been without heat or power for over a week.

MouseGuard: I've read most of the volumes apart from The Black Axe (which I should get to reading soon). One of my best friends introduced me to the series. She was in a comic book store in her city, saw the series, and recommended it to me. Luckily, I was able to get my hands on the series through my local libraries.

Those figurines are beautiful. :) I will have to keep a look out to see if they (or the Mousling Tavern) are available locally.

Yeah i rather like the little figurines. They have a nifty charm to them. I haven't seen them in stores though. hmm

we're still getting a ton of cold and our governor declared most of the state a disaster crisis area due to the cold and weather. where i am ok generally ok right now but.. things change quickly. So I'm just praying it stays manageable.

Hey David, is it even vaguely winter where you are? :) Or Seith?

When I see what you and Mousewings are going through... it really hits home how lucky we are with the weather here in Asia. Since living in China, Hong Kong and now... Thailand, it has been about 7 years since I've properly experienced winter.

Thailand has 3 seasons: rainy, hot and cool.... which are all quite physically comfortable and managable. Recently, the rainy season has gotten way out of control, though I personally haven't experienced the severe flooding (thank heaven). When it rains, it just comes down in torrents.

Although I regret the damage to peoples' property, I really enjoy walking in the heavy rain because I get soaked to the skin within a minute, and yet it is still quite warm and pleasant... like a walking shower.

So, with weather in Asia we are really, really fortunate (except those unlucky enough to get blasted by a super typhoon). So, kudos to you folks with more challenging weather patterns ;)
