If you could send me your ProjectBuilder file, that would be FABULOUS.  starcon@tgr.com. (the .pbproj file)

 10 total *easy places* --> 10 rainbow worlds.



Ok, I don't believe it either, but I figured I'd mention it.

 Hey, I resent that remark -- my trolling isn't obvious at all!

seriously, I missed the part where you asked for hosting.  My apologies.

[and to all you "waaaah, I can't afford VC++!" whiners -- ya know, there ARE free, open source development environments for windows.  Open your eyes.]

Look, I think it's a foregone conclusion that anyone that knows how to compile this is capable of hosting it, and the fact that those of you that  "can't" compile it are offering to host it suggests that you don't know what you're getting yourselves in to.

This is open source.  If you're so inclined, check out the source tree, build the goddamn windows executable, and host it yourself.  Don't ask other people to stop their real work and build the exe for you just because you're impatient.

If you don't know how to build the executable, well, maybe this is your big chance to expand your horizons and learn some new skills.

My theory, in more detail:

The Orz is not evil, but are so not-like-us that he is dangerous.  Yes, the *nggn* is the Orz.  The Arilou have been frustrating their attempts to enter this dimension -- *jumping in front* -- for a while, but the Androsynth opened up a new pathway.

The Androsynth were destroyed when the Orz pulled them through to their dimension, where beings like us can't really exist.  The Orz wasn't -trying- to kill them, but, y'know, you can't squeeze tomatoes without making *sauce*.

The Orz is singular, and is not a *light reflection* like us -- he is not made up of *many bubbles* (cells).  He's completely different.

The authors at one point said that they were going to do something like have something Really Bad happen if the player entered QuasiSpace with an Orz ship in tow, but they never got around to it.  Too bad!

"Many bubbles" obviously refers to _cells_.
