        We've hardly had any rain over here lately, and we're usually known for the rain. So it's definitely not one of our crystals, unless they stole it from you....

        Seriously it's been so dry and hot here that the leaves are falling off the trees before changing color. Most depressing Fall I've ever lived through, instead of beautiful, multicolored woods it's nothing but brown and the ticks and mosquitoes have stuck around longer than they should too.

        Pitch altering doesn't save you from me :D Brother told me once that the newest wesnoth title soundtrack was nice. I recognized it, since it was just an alteration of one game st, so I proceeded to hum it. His reaction: "Omg, is it really that?" "Yes." "Oh, I didn't recognize it. In that case it's awful." :D

        A little of both. When I got to Chapters 7 - 9 I did plot maps only so I had to still do all side dungeons, some areas got added to the game as Chapter 7 was changed, and so on and so forth.
