Hi, everyone! I hope you had a good May!
A couple of things related to the Sega Genesis game…
How do you find the other half of Ren’s sword in the Sunken Bridge level? I can’t remember if I asked you all about this some time ago or not, but I actually have never been able to find it. Zack inquired about it recently, which reminded me of it. (I mean beyond the DSILLER password you can input at the beginning–there’s supposed to be a way to find it within the Sunken Bridge level.)
And a little hidden trick/bug within the Pandawa Jungle: check it out. I had found one of these but not the other. I’m still not sure if it’s a bug or truly a set of hidden ladders. (Mad props to the person, though, both for posting it and for also choosing Tula for that board! I play Tula on as many boards in the Sega game as possible, but switch to Ren or Ioz for certain boards that call for a different balance of strength and speed.)
In other news, Jay/Dr. J passed on a link to The Redwood Connection, a nostalgia/toy-archive project he and his friends are working on, with a section focusing on the PoDW action figure line. It’s fun, and the site in general brings back memories of the random plays and stuff my friends and I would put on as kids. I miss that unbridled creativity.
And Dakota has passed on a link to the wikia.com section for PoDW, a wiki that can actually get as in-depth with its content as its users/contributors want it to (unlike Wikipedia, which has a set of standards for the kinds of things it displays on its main page, what gets broken off into sub-categories, etc.). Feel free to add away!
A few other folks have e-mailed requesting for the extra character pages in the RPG set–I am truly sorry I haven’t gotten on that, but I SWEAR I will soon. (Yeah, yeah, likely story…but I really mean it this time!)
Also, that paper-turned-letter that I wrote for my writing seminar, arguing for PoDW’s release on DVD, got full marks. I’m pretty thrilled about that–the prof thought I made a compelling argument, and actually said, “If anyone can get them to bring this pirate show back, it’s you!” Awwww. 🙂 I’ll post it sometime soon if anybody’s actually interested.
