    Is there anyone called Harcout in “Ixion’s Wheel”, or is that part of the email just completely random?

      There is indeed a character named Stanton Harcourt. See here for the start of his exciting adventures!

      He was just named after the village, though: the player wasn’t thinking of the historical family. (There were a few characters named after villages in South Oxfordshire.)

        Were you in Oxford when the game was being developed? You could simply tell him what you just said but disabuse him of any more profound intentions (in this po-mo world, of course, we are all free to read any meaning we like into the text regardless of the author’s state of mind when it was written 😀 )

          I would like to encourage him to do just that, as he doesn’t live close enough to become a stalker 😉

            In this world of cheap travel and global info (I managed to get from your LJ to a photo of you and your surname and the fact you’ve moved to Ipswich in two minutes – a little superfluous of course given that your company address is public, though!) how far is “too far to stalk”?

            Hmm, maybe I should be worrying more, if you [typify | have the same clicking skills as] the kind of weirdo who might be coming after me… still, “it’s good to stalk”, as Bob Hoskins used to say.
