Though I'm not a big fan of the game, I'm headed for the Dreamland amusement park from Faust for my getaway.

Everybody else is invited, but I'm taking Nathaniel's house.

What a nice topic!

I'd love to be in those strange balloons in Schizm! They all look like a Salvador Dali art work with hidden worlds in each one of them! bravo

... AND, one place I'd NEVER go is... the Dark Fall Hotel!!! eek

I would first choose to be in the old haunted railroad station and hotel in DarkFall. And since this is a 'make believe travel agency and I am usually organized very well, let's just go ahead and plan my vacation for 2004. let's see, mmmm, I think I would like to spend some time in the art gallery in Temujin, would love to try to build that 'make a cup of tea machine' and poke around. There are more, but I'm having a Senior Moment as to just where/what they are. This is a fun topic.
Love, Betty Lou
P.S. Next question would be, what will you take with you?

I'd like to have a cruise on that sailboat in SCHIZM. Should give you a great view.

I remember now! In 2005, if I'm still alive, I'd like to spend some time in Callahan's Crosstime Saloon getting to know all those odd characters.
Love, Betty Lou laugh

Jonathan,

there are Many spooky sites within Yorkshire.. plus loads of historical ones!! Guess no-one has thought to exploit them.. maybe an adventure based on the Barbara Taylor Bradford books doesn't hold any draw... I would look to Barbara Erskine for inspiration myself!!

Outside of the gaming world, I would Love to be within a Dahli painting... Thanks Bastet for making me think of him! I spent my colledge years staring at the sleeper for inspiration!!

Hugs

Interesting topic!

I'd like to visit Shangri-La in "Legacy of Time" and hang loose with the monks, swap jokes with Genghis Khan, and see what yak butter tastes like.

No you don't! Tea with yucky yak butter is enough to turn your stomach. I don't think there's such a thing as non-rancid yak butter. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

I'll try anything once! It can't be worse than trying to eat live prawns can it?

Cool topic, Jonathon! For me, it would have to be the worlds of Exile, BUT....I would want to take my best friend with me too, and I'm talking maybe a 2 week vacation...plenty of time for exploring and finding our way to each new place. I would especially look forward to Edanna, and playing with the Squee too. ALSO...the ride at Amateria would be SO fun!

Yes, eating live prawns sounds pretty disgusting too, but for a different reason: all of a sudden your stomach has moved to a spot between your ears. wink

Betje (fish and chips for me, and a cup of tea with a dash of milk)

Hi all,

Interesting to read all the responses to this topic (BTW, I am planning to get Dark Fall real soon, Jonathon!).

Have any of you played that terrific on-line game called Faradise? I don't know if it is still available, but I find myself thinking of it from time to time and wishing I could be there. It had great atmosphere - in fact, I almost got a sun burn while playing it (lol).

laugh Andy

I want to be on Jungle Island in Riven, playing with sunners, lying on the white sand, taking rides in the submarine.

Andy, Faradise is still around and it was beautiful. wink

Hi all,
Having had some bad days recently I want to do the following

- get back to Myst - Myst Island and all the supporting ages. I'll read the books in the library that aren't burned. Maybe I'll set up my bedroom in Channelwood. I'll hang out on the stoneship. I'll have to figure out where to get food, and if it's ever warm enough to go swimming, in all that water.

- hang out on the ship in Morpheus. I want a working ship, especially the plant room, and the gym. Wasn't there a pool (I'm very water focused)? I don't want any of those pesky irritating passengers, corporeal or not. Bringing my own passengers would be fine, but if not, I'll spend a month or so in blessed solitude. I'll look at the frozen landscape (and I hate the cold), then I'll enjoy myself on the rest of the ship.

- In Syberia, spend, oh maybe a year at the spa at Aralberg. I am a little worried about the quality of the cuisine. Maybe they can import cuisine from California, Italy, France and Mexico for me. At least the liquor will be fine. In the summer, I'll "take the waters" outside. In the other seasons, I'll swim in that really nifty indoor pool (well, I said I was water focused). Maybe they can give me my very own automaton to talk to.

- I think the house in Amber looked oddly comforting, before, of course, all those apparitions started appearing. It looked about the right size for me. I'd like to let in a little more light in the house, improve that computer, and add a home computer network with a couple more computers. It looks like home theater could also be improved - I didn't see any good speakers hooked up to the TV. This would only be a summer hangout - I'm not staying there in the snow. That boat dock (water again) was nice.

- I've got great hopes for "Paris of the 20s" in Post Mortem. I just started the game, so I didn't get to any of the not nice sections of Paris, I'm sure there are some. The detective protagonist should really improve his apartment (flat) though. Using oil paints (in the 20s they didn't have acrylic paints) in a living situation is really bad for you. Ventilation in his living and working space looked terrible.

All for now.

Hmmmmmmm all of these places sound really great. I would have to go with the peaceful beauty of the Andes in Journey man 3.

For excitement I would definitely love to hang out at Calahans and mike and the rest. Really love riddle night and saving up every bad pun I can find.

Wouldn't mind riding the dragon on Rent A Hero. Then in the evening - I would take a good book and go upstairs to my room at the top of a lighthouse on a dark and stormy English coast wink
