Overusing the semicolon makes your writing look either sloppy or snobbish. Good job demonstrating the latter with your A-level quip.

Your belief in something called a 'period' leads me to believe you are a product of the American education system, so congratulations on being able to spell at all. However, my writing style is my business, and unless you can actually bring out some reasoning and support in the way of proper analysis, don't attack it. (Obviously this doesn't apply to outright mistakes.) That you think that a comma could replace a semicolon makes me question your capabilities, particularly since you speak that bastardised tongue from across the pond.

I just happen to speak a lot in a way that requires the use of a semi-colon - I'm that sort of guy.

Not QUITE the right time length or impact.

This isn't a stylistic argument; you've got a lot of semicolons in there.

Nazar: Heya there; [1] you wouldn't happen to be in charge around here, would you?
Young Lady: Perhaps I am, perhaps I'm not; [2] tell me [...]
Nazar: Hehe, that's quite a story; [3] you see [...]
<snip two lines of dialog>
Young Lady: *sighs* My father, Trevyn, is in the room next door; [4] you'd better speak to him.

Now this isn't consistent throughout the entire demo, but there are areas where you've got at least one semicolon every time a character speaks.

Your writing in general is excellent--story aside, which thus far is lolwut?.

Whether that is a good thing or not IS a stylistic argument.

This series will often tend toward parody, as you may have already noticed.

Personally, I think semicolons are great. When I write a paper or whatever, the semicolon just randomly pops up; as Griffen said, it's a timing mechanism, more than anything else. The gap implied by ';' does not equal the gap implied by '-', or even '...' for that matter. The characters here are laid back at the moment - they are running their 'sentences' (more like thoughts) more or less together, just like you normally would. Were they giving speeches or speaking with great emotion, a higher degree of separation may be appropriate, or perhaps less.

And Griffen, don't diss America. I honestly doubt you've spent much time in the U.S. if you truly believe what you said.

You people can be so immature sometimes. Seriously, let's argue about semicolons on the internet. Thumbs up, dudes.

Obviously by 'You people' you mean Europeans.

So, I was like... excited for this. But then nothing happened. So now I'm like, sad. Also - Semicolons.

Well, basically, I'm waiting for two things:

1) Mindy's FPS system to be a bit more developed.
2) Me having more time. IE: after my exams.

I like this and your Warlords project, I hope you keep working on Warlords after you finish exams too.

Thanks for the kind words. Warlords is almost finished, just got a few adjustments to make, but, content wise, it is basically done.

I MAY if I have the time make a sort of sequel without the Imperial/Barb parts (it's kind of nice, but not particularly practical balance or gameplay wise; too dependant on other players playing the game in a rational way).

Progress on stuff will be highly dependant upon if I go away for the summer. After I go to Uni, expect my modding time to drop dramatically (although I have long holidays then, during term time it will basically be zero).

Great map, really have to hand you some great props for having it intuitive.

I really love the easing on the cameras and I like the battle system. Everything seems really great.

Great job on the map, I hope to see more. I love single-player RPGs.

Great work especially if its a beta. I'm waiting for other parts since this one didn't last long.
By the way, how are you supposed to do the ghouls part other than running in circles until the timer expires?
