Well, there it is, my first try. I'm almost certain the dice numbers will need some heavy rewriting, and I never did get around to writing a glossary like I'd wanted, but all the same it's something to build on, right?

Your thoughts?

I thought the concept was interesting. The background was well developed, but I see what you mean about the mechanics. Has this on e been playtested yet?

I don't know about Mr. DNA... but I know with my game submissions there is absolutely no way to playtest a 24 Hour Submission at all. I think I got out some cards and played with Sky Ace for a few minutes by myself just to make sure it was going to look like what I was hoping that it would look like. Beyond something like that it sure seems that I spend every spare minute at the keyboard trying to get my words in order.

"Lord Knows I Don't Begrudge Her It." does strike me as a very interesting and inspired concept. There used to be someone who reviewed the 24 Hour Games on a semi regular basis ... Evan? (Would that be 'Plotdevice' on these forums?)

I know that I really looked forward to the reviews. Maybe I can volunteer to take on that mantle. I have submitted a few games myself. I have been gaming since 1980 ... 26 years. If this is enough of a qualification for everyone then I will give it a go. I am not a RPG scientist or anything... but I know what I like.

I want to say...

WTO talks collapse, rich world 'to blame'

Trade officials said in Geneva yesterday that a high-level summit to salvage a global trade pact collapsed, after the United States, China and India failed to agree on farm import rules.Trade officials from two developed and one emergingAge of Conan Gold economy said that a meeting of seven commercial powers broke up without agreement at the World Trade Organization (WTO) yesterday.The officials said a US dispute with China and India over farm import safeguards had effectively ended any hope of a breakthrough.Two officials said WTO chief Pascal Lamy had informed ministers that convergence could not be reached after nine days of talks.Earlier, Commerce Minister Chen Deming said the WTO talks were on the brink of collapse because the developed countries, led by the US and the European Union (EU), were asking for too much.The US and the EU criticized China at the Doha round of trade Dofus Kamastalks after it opposed a compromise proposal on farm tariff and subsidy presented over the weekend.Rich and poor countries have clashed repeatedly since the WTO talks in Qatar's capital, Doha, in 2001. And farm subsidy offered by governments in rich countries has been one of the key points of disagreement.David Shark, a US trade official, told the WTO's 153 members that the US had "swallowed hard and accepted" the compromise proposal to open up trade in manufacturing goods and agriculture. But, he said, India rejected the package presented by WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy, and China "backed out of the terms it had committed" to last week. "Their actions have thrown the entire Doha round into the gravest jeopardy of its nearly seven-year life."The Chinese delegation yesterday rejected the criticism as "groundless" through a statement on the Ministry of Commerce's website.Chen said the developed countries had been the greatest beneficiaries during this round of WTO talks because "they have retained a lot of room for farm subsidy".The developed world should show more understanding toward the developing countries' worries, instead of setting up obstacles to solutions, Chen said.Trade representatives of about 30 countries have world of warcraft goldbeen trying to break the deadlock over the Doha round of talks at the WTO headquarters in Geneva since July 21. The talks were scheduled to end on July 25 but have continued because no agreement could be reached."The US and the EU are looking for a scapegoat dofus kamas(for the failure of the talks)," said Feng Jun, a Shanghai-based WTO expert. "They have offered to cut a little farm subsidy in exchange for a much greater access to developing countries' markets. And despite the cuts, their farm subsidy would still be very high."China refuses to lower the tariff of some farm products imported from the developed world because "we need to take care of our farmers", Feng said.Chen said China also opposes the developed world eve iskforcing the developing countries into special deals in industrial sectors.The developed world can have "sectoral" deals - according to which tariffs can be slashed in certain industrial sectors - with the developing countries only on a "voluntary" basis, he said.
