~ROFL~Why is this the perfect response?
Thanks I needed a good laugh.
Hate isn't owned by any one person or group... it's owned by everyone.
I have also started watching Legend of Korra. Fun show. All early 1900's radio drama style. It does tend to wrap up subplots in one 24 minute episode each... which they didn't have to do, and would have been far more dramatic if they had left them to run their course more naturally. But they were pressed for time so I guess they had to shorten where they could.
Well Gate was disappointing this week... Ugh... could the writer have a more obvious bias against the US and the superiority of Japanese forces? The entire episode was a joke, like some weird 6 year olds personal fantasy showdown. I like the show but seriously maybe it's best if they stick to stuff on the other side of the Gate.

I have an observation to add to this. The rules for role playing are rarely changing, yet the rules for roll playing are always changing. Say this group was playing 3.5e and a lot of time building both skills then 3.5e ends and they start 4e and recruit a newbe... Then they will ALL seem pretty good at role playing to the newbe while everyone is starting at square one with zero roll playing experience in the new system. I suspect when people get older and they lose that fire to optimize the 10th new system, they can still pull out decades of skill at role playing and wow the table even if they are not slaughtering their opponents anymore.
I have definitely run into "pull your weight" people in conventions... a lot of them. In one game I had a magic item which enhanced my basic attacks but not my special attacks, so I was using a lot of basic attacks during the scenario. I swear these people were going to have an aneurysm. They were constantly trying to tell me what I was supposed to do next. Chill out and let me play my own character, please! One even had the temerity to say I was holding the team back... but I was running a higher DPR than any of them; and doing it with mostly basic attacks. I honestly don't see how any of these guys have any fun playing the game like it's some kind of SWAT exercise.

Not many these days... I used to go to Gen Con a lot, but now with work being weird about giving me time off it may be a while before I can get a big enough weekend. I do usually always attend Jafax anime convention for at least one day since it's local. But they lost their venue and we will see if there will actually be one in 2016.

I suppose it's entirely possible if you run in those circles.In which case you might have also met me depending on when and where you know him from.
No I wasn't concerned that he was going to dress up... He does make me wear cosplay outfits. And I model for him... he is a bit of a struggling artist. It wouldn't surprise me to see a partially completed monster girl costume waiting for me when I go over to his place.
It's relevant in the fact that 99.9999999% of all other demons are evil, so there is reason for the paladin to be suspicious of the succubus.
Is it? I don't think so. This demon mattered here NOT the unknown number of other evil ones. Unless it is absolute that they can only be evil then it is evil to attack someone who is doing good deeds. It would be pretty obvious that the demon wasn't the normal variety just by its actions. He didn't even ask anything... Just attack on sight.
The entire excuse for the Paladin not suffering any fall amounts to. He was racist (against demons) so it was a good act to kill one in his mind, and that's all that matters. It doesn't matter that she was doing a good act, non-violent, and clearly supported by the good people of the church when he happened upon her. Nope, she was of a race he doesn't like so murder = good in some of your minds. Frightening.
~skipping all the pages~
Now as a player I would be pissed at the GM for placing a GOOD creature that detects as EVIL. HOWEVER if I was the paladin I would immediately surrender myself for judgement to the village authorities, do anything in my power to correct my mistake even paying a true resurrection fee to restore the Succubus, and I would then seek an atonement for my error to restore my powers. AND if any of this derails the campaign it is clearly the GMs fault for deliberately creating a situation with a HIGH likelihood of making me fall.
It is unlikely clearcutters would have much luck fooling a person as perceptive as she clearly is (high wis). She probably has very little patience for memorizing details (low Int) and as a result has avoided reading books in favor of exploring the wilds. Perhaps a parent or mentor was a monk and did their best to instill discipline in the half breed child. Her communication skills are average and she is disciplined and lawful so it is unlikely she would misspell simple words like book or learning... big words or knowledge specific ones like anthropogenic would give her a headache and leave her clueless.
You mean relatively of course. My elves are impossible to play as anything other than older than me in years. But I tend to create characters that are starting out their careers as early adults; late teens to early twenties in human years. And my characters that start out at higher levels tend to have older adult age categories; 20s-30s in human years... I don't think I have ever played an elderly person.
I sit absentmindedly at my computer sneaking glances over at my purchase; a pair of black leather boots that will look absolutely stylish when I wear them this fall. Of course the thought of a Hazmat Fest has me giggling and that distracts me back to the computer again. What would a Hazmat fest even look like? People all showing up in their latest hazmat suit fashions? What events would there be? Seminars on the latest material handling techniques? Games involving hazardous materials? Films about past spills? And of course the exhibit hall filled with the latest gadgets. Perhaps they would even do a special event where they spill something dangerous at the festival and let everyone have fun containing and cleaning it up! And the food? Five alarm chili Texas style?
Why am I thinking about the new Fallout game now? Hmmmm...
Perhaps sell them to a scrap metal dealer?
Motorcycles are fun. And they are definitely NOT fuel air bombs ... Lack of any protective structure is fair though. Most tragic accidents are due to idiot drivers not the bikes themselves.
Be grateful your man has a job... Mine just sits around playing MMOs and watching anime all day. He doesn't even clean very often relying on the pity of me or his family to help him out.
It was a quiet morning as I stood amid the pre-opening hush at the local outlet mall. I stood at the corner in the shade under the awning and let the cool air blow gentility across my legs and through my hair. The air was electric with the anticipation of the opening and heavy with the flowery aroma of the nearby candle shop. Soon I would be browsing through all the clothing and trying out new looks... Ahhh... Retail therapy.
I am now watching four anime; Gate, Food Wars, Overlord, and Monster Girls...
You all know I love Gate and Food Wars by now... Overlord seems odd, not sure whether to like or dislike it yet. My boyfriend got me watching Monster Girls and now every time I see it I wonder 'is my boyfriend perverted? Will he ask me to dress up as a monster next?' The anime seems to just be a sitcom centered around perverse situations with monsterous girls.

Why would you be afraid of me with biotics it's not like I would do any harm with them? And I am totally lost on who you are comparing me to?
but the reapers have no free will, they are controlled by the little boy AI. Effectively they don't change when the Shedard AI takes over they just get an upgraded AI mistress who is a lot more moral. I am not convinced you would go mad, the little boy AI didn't.

Are you comparing me to Liara?
I did play Arrival... I was sad that they turned it into a railroad. I would have liked to find a way to fix the problem without
slaughtering an entire Batarian colony. Like moving the relay to point directly into the sun so that anyone using it to enter the system would be committing suicide reaper or not. Then warning the rest of the Galaxy so only reapers die. But that is just one idea... They didn't give us any options at all.

Yes the irony didn't escape me that the least moral man was seeking the most moral solution.
But the four solutions (as I understand them):
-Destroy: Safely eliminates the threat... but genocides the entire Geth race and Edi, as well as any other machine beings. Evil if you consider AI's to be people too. And after fighting SO hard for the Geth / Quarian peace I wasn't going to do THAT.
-Control: You sacrifice yourself to save everyone else... and gain an AI with your personality that controls the greatest force in history. Not good for you but it harms no one else.
-Refuse: Seriously who would let the reaping continue after ALL that struggle? Oh and obviously evil.
So I will need that much, thanks.Control was the only moral choice... But this time through I will save before the end and try all four endings.
~grumbles~ Sid Meyer's Beyond Earth will have to wait until I get a new computer before I can play it. The graphics are not rendering properly. ~sighs~ The joy of using an older computer.
Even though my system is fairly new I feel your pain... my video card has started to burn out and crashes the system on all those highly rendered games I like. I have lowered the graphics levels in all my games to compensate but I fear I am only delaying the inevitable need to buy a new computer.
It seems these things tend to die just after the warranty expires.
I had a character like this a pixie named Mixie who had found a cursed rod of wonder... It favored certain spectacularly useless effects over useful ones. Usually the one that changed things permanently to a new color, which started her on a personal mission to "repaint the world in bright happy colors". I think the group would have killed me off if they didn't think it would make me really sad.
My hair is light brown and looks great with blonde highlights... but I have never dared actually dye the color to something else. I have always wanted to. But wasn't allowed when I was younger and now that I am older and can probably get away with it I find myself worried about how bad my roots would look a few days after a dye job. So I still don't...
Edit: If I did I would totally go blonde. No weird colors like purple, pink, or blue. I do have a respectable job.

Oh I love it when those hateful type preachers come to campus. Usually it goes poorly for them. They proudly proclaim I am going to hell as I walk past. I stop and loudly proclaim their heresy before God and then quote the Bible to them. This angers them and they demand I repent. Instead I quote more of the Bible and rebuke them... I even got one of them once to deny the entire book of Mathew. They really have to learn that preaching lies is NOT going to satisfy God.
Tacticslion the odd flavors might be an improper setting for the mixtures on the machines themselves. I have seen this happen with other fountain drinks that came from improperly adjusted machines. You might just be dealing with a bad technician rather than bad machines.
I haven't tried a freestyle machine yet, and the closest one I know about is in Cedar Point amusement park. So it may be some time yet before I get to try it myself.

Do you have British ancestry? Every boy I met with solid British ancestry had this problem.
Freehold DM wrote:
lol That would be awesome. Heck they could even hire me as the latest spokes model. But I am probably too old for that now.
My old favorites were: (in order from most recent to least recent)
I like perfectly blended flavors and the farther in the past you go the more prone I was to loving unique flavors.
But really Pepsi on crushed ice slices apart thirst like a ninja without the sticky feeling most sodas leave in your mouth afterwards. It's like the ice washes it all away.
I don't know... If I were a Muslim woman and applied for a job at hooters it's a fair bet to say I wouldn't get the job owing to the fact that I would be required to dress modestly by my religion and that violates dress code. And I seem to recall different cases where the courts have upheld hooters uniform code.
