Family Crisis...

My family is currently having an agonizing personal crisis, so I probably won't be updating Lambshack for a while. The links and blog will remain open to all until I return, so please use this resource as you will. Take care...

Rune Videos? Hell, Yeah.

So now I've added a new section to the blog. There's a list of links on the right side of the page called, "Rune Videos". Scroll down a bit, and you'll see it. Why did I add it? I don't know, really. People wanted to share their Rune videos on youtube, so I figured I'd provide a link to them. This list of links will grow over time, and since I'm in no particular rush to complete it in a single night, I'll just do this at my own leisurely pace. More to come soon...

Rune: Pure Adrenaline

Here's an old video of Barbarian Cultist from Rune wreaking bloody havoc, and making people cry. This video makes me nostalgic, and reminds me why I was so completely addicted to this game for years. Rune is pure adrenaline, baby...pure adrenaline.

Thieves Guild

Well, here's something interesting! A gamer by the code name, "Jetrell", has been designing a single player mod for the computer game, Rune. He and others discuss it on the Runegame site here:

Check out this video montage...of Thieves Guild.

Video 04: - Mod DB

Here is the summary of Thieves Guild on Mod DB:

"Thieves Guild is a singleplayer mod, which was loosely inspired by Thief: The Dark Project, a game that was originally developed by Looking Glass Studios. In order to play this mod you will need to have Rune, which is another great game that was developed by Human Head Studios.

The Story: The player will take on the role of a thief working for the local thieves guild in a dark and corrupt city during an obscure mystic age. The player will be given a series of dangerous nocturnal missions to complete and if successful you will gain extra items and wealth. But in order to be successful you will need to learn how to creep silently down shadowy alleyways, scale guarded buildings, overcome treacherous traps, pick open locks and all the while you will need to avoid capture from the city guards and night patrols.

Background: This series was designed as a stealthy thief adventure and not as a hack and slash game. The player should try to employ stealth strategy, and other thieving skills such as, avoidance, hiding in shadows, stealing, climbing and jumping before resorting to unsheathing your dagger.

What's new: There are new monsters, weapons, magic items, mechanical and non-mechanical devices, scripting, textures, and music. There are also treasure chests with locks and keys, flags that blow in the wind, lots of early Victorian architecture and atmosphere with new special effects like "shadow zones" and "thief sense". In addition there are many other surprises locked away and just waiting to be discovered.This mod is currently comprised of ten individual maps but that number might and probably will increase by the time it’s ready for release. I'll continue to post new updates with more information, screenshots, and videos in the upcoming days and weeks."

"The day is for honest men, the night for thieves."
~ Euripides (484 B.C. - 406 B.C.), Iphigenia in Tauris, circa 412 B.C.

More Rune Links Are Being Added To This Blog...

I've been adding more Rune links to this blog. Yes, I am aware of the fact that the Rune community is half-dead, and running on fumes...but the way I see it, is that if the game were ever revived in some way, it would be wise to post links to everything I can find. So I hope this blog proves to be useful to anyone out there. I know that it's certainly useful to me...

How To Tickle A Camel

Behold this instructional video, which shows the viewer how to safely tickle a camel...

A Loudmouth Gets Mentally Owned By Michael Kuhr

In this video, we see the fighting champion, Michael Kuhr. He masterfully dominates an obnoxious loudmouth in a nightclub without throwing a single punch, and manages to do so in the most polite way possible...

Am I Still Updating? Yes, I Am.....

I'm still updating the site, adding new links and whatnot. I know that I haven't been writing thought-provoking or controversial essays or anything, but that's ok. As long as this place remains a useful resource for others or for myself, then I am content...

Why Bark When You Can Whine Instead?

Check it out. This dog is like a cross between a child version of Yoda and a whiny Ewok on crack after losing its favorite toy. It's hard to believe this thing is actually a dog. It's cute though..

A Source of Links

I haven't been making many new posts lately, but I do add new links here every once in a while for my own entertainment. I never really told people that this place exists after the original Lambshack went down, just keeping it going for my own entertainment, though I should probably let the Rune gamers know about its existence...
