Crystal Shard is proud to announce the release of Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok, available for FREE download!
Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through. Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way.
The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game has excellent replayability.
- Explore the rich world of Norse mythology!
- Three character classes with separate side quests: use your strength as a warrior, the arcane arts as a sorceress, wit and guile as a rogue, or create a hybrid with skills from multiple classes.
- 32 distinct voice acted characters with animated portraits.
- Over 100 hand-painted backgrounds and 10,000 sprites in animations.
- Many monsters, including giants, trolls, and svartalfar.
- High replayability due to optional quests, alternative solutions, and the three different classes.
Available for download from www.crystalshard.net/hq.htm .

China had whole shops for Apple products that were fake. Had the name Apple, everything but the logo - even the employees didn't know it was a scam.

I acquired the Hero6 source code about two years ago, just before the Cole's announced Hero-U (School for Heroes at the time). It collected virtual dust until last week when I started inspecting the game code. The game looks to be 80-90% complete with most of the artwork already rendered (my weak spot). In my spare time, I've started finishing the game. I'm not sure how long this will take, but I suppose the amount of time will be equivalent to my attention to detail.
I just thought I'd post something here in case someone had already taken steps toward finishing the game. I'd love to hear back from anyone interested in assisting. The dissolution of the Hero6 forums was a major resource loss, but the remaining information still available should be enough.
All contributions are welcome and appreciated! If there's enough interest, I'll start posting progress updates.
Here is a quick run-through of the initial game play. Follow the cursor to see what I'm pointing out. Also, watch for the pink shadows of sprite-doom when I move diagonally - fun stuff!

Happy Birthday PL sweety *hug, kiss*
I'm really glad you have a good job and can make a good living for yourself.
Unfortunately I cannot say the same for myself, as I've been unemployed for almost 3 years now. Around 80 thousand Cypriots are without a job these days, and for that, Europe and our government is to blame. We have so many foreigners living and working here, and the last year or so, Greeks have been coming here and stealing the jobs of their "brothers" the Cypriots. And it came to the point that Cypriots have no choice but to leave their country and go abroad to find jobs and make a living for themselves.
And honestly, I'm thinking to do the same, cause things are completely hopeless right now. And they re bound to get worse...
I know how you feel, I've been watching the whole financial situation like a hawk, and what really scares me is how these bankers are using Cyprus as a test to see how the rest of the world will react once they apply the exact same thing to the rest of Europe, the US, and Canada. The whole world is slowing down and turning to crap in so many ways its just depressing. I'm honestly worried that Canada would be next on the list of countries to go down hard. It is still pretty bad over here with increasing unemployment rates. I mean Quebec has the second or is first even in unemployment in Canada. Currently, Canada has stronger regulation on the banks than some other countries, but even those won't stem the tides for too long. I have quite a bit of cash in my savings now, and I said, and even more with my dad in Lebanon (the money I saved up while I was in Dubai. I saved literally every penny I made and never spent any of it). I feel like any day now my savings might get sucked down the drain that is the financial crisis. I would say more about it, but it's a huge topic and I'm not sure if this is the right place to talk about it.
I really hope that things do get better for you. We've all been in the same position and when I heard the crisis popping up in Cyprus, you're the first person I thought of there. In some ways I don't spend much time trying to chase girls because my mind is on so many other things. I'm worried far more about the future than I ever was, and I was always the type of guy who cared about where the world was headed.
I shall omit my usual tag phrase for this post.

The crazy thing about these is, I funded almost all these projects, but haven't picked up any of the benefits... or followed up on them. :/ Damn, I need to fund this one and pay more attention!
Till next time, play more video games!

Yeppers, looked it up and since it was a brand new addition (for us, at least) it was defaulted to not having any allowed. Set it to 5 possible likes per 24 hour period.
EDIT: As for the uploading, I'm afraid that's up to Elsa there - she's the one who pays for the site, I'm just the lacky, and she's the one with the whip.
