So ... my youngest daughter who is eight years old has been getting really into an introductory programming platform called "scratch." She told me she was logging on today, and I asked her if she could make Gorboth. An hour later, she came upstairs and told me to check it out:

I did a RL cackle emote for about 5 minutes!

You better not tell her about fairy dragons near Flotsam...

P. S.
Her portrayal of you looks disturbingly similar to Richard...

Here's another one ... evidently in my daughter's mind, Gorboth decides to use his pie as the best way to fight a beholder. The results are predictable.

My daughter has outdone herself this time. She's 10 now, but still likes to make fun things with her budding programming skills.

Her newest version of ... ME! :-)

Once it loads, click the green flag. You can even drag around my Krullix staff and the mystic pie. Ho ho ho ...
