Conversation Between Fynn and Karifean

  1. lol accidentally spying on your convo with WK and let me tell you, the number of people I've seen online frustrated with the pace of the later parts of the Witcher (lots of POV shifts, involving development of characters that were either minor at that point or just not in thebstory yet at all) is pretty staggering. I actuallyloved it and thought it was pretty fresh and original, though part of me was kinda like "just get to Geralt or Ciri already"
  2. Well it's free. So that excuse won't fly!
  3. But Karifi. I need to buy an oven. Not games, silly.
  4. OH WAIT A SEC, another VN that recently came out that I totally recommend reading on Halloween is Doki Doki Literature Club. It exists on Steam and as Standalone. Don't question it, don't look things up, just read, and enjoy the ride =P

    (Did I seriously just tell you to delay checking out the VNs I gifted you ... what the hell is wrong with me)
  5. Oh yeah, regarding the translations - I heard that the English versions kind of miss all the nice stylings of the original version. Sapkowski uses an interesting blend of archaisms and modern terms (including stuff like genetics) that imo really makes the world of the Witcher unique. And apparently, judging by some German-speaking reddit users, this is retained in the German version to great effect. By contrast, the English version is much more straightforward and "to the point", so to speak.

    I mean, it kind of make sense. Since Germany borders on Poland, there's a higher probability for there to be more people with an in-depth knowledge of Polish rather than the US/UK, where knowing a second language is rare in general, let alone a language as niche as Polish.
  6. Sadly, we might not even have time to do it on Halloween proper. The 31st is a regular weekday here, but the 1st is a day off, so that's really when we'd do most of our gaming, I think. Though we might have some time on the eevening of the 31st. We're just... very busy aside from that, and what little free time I have in the week I try to force myself to write (this weekend has been worryingly unproductive for me ). But yeah, figured we should finally get on with those VNs you gifted me since we don't really play much at the moment and it seems like a good time to get into it.
  7. Haha, I see~ since they're originally Polish there's no reason to seek out the English versions then I suppose =P

    Also, sounds awesome =)
    Though if you want a scary story for Halloween, do consider reading the First Door beforehand. Second Door is way more 'Halloween-y' =P
  8. So uh, I heard tge German translations for the Witcher books are widely considered dpretty stellar

    just thought you oughtta know

    (also we are considering playing the House in Fata Morgana for Halloween)
  9. Haha... well then ^^
