It's also possible that MitD isn't so much deliberately trying to derail Team Evil so much as he's stupid, childish, and impulsive. He could have just decided that painting 'X's on doors was fun, so he did it a couple more times when Xykon et al were not looking.
I disagree. A lot of his actions are way too deliberate for that.

Shadowrun still is closer to the mechanics heavy end of the spectrum. Worked great for Nobilis, where everything is abstract and you may be using metaphysical concepts to attack your opponent.
I personally prefer a system where the higher your initiative, the later you declare your action and the earlier it resolves.
I love this system, but I'm not sure how well I could adapt it to d20. One thing I have found is that actions before initiative tends to work in more fluid games, while the more tactical you make your game board the harder it is to get it to play out.

The opening theme song makes the subtext text.
I can't say I would ever have associated it as a placeholder. In that context it has similar, but importantly different connotations.
I'm not sure I like the possibility of having to deal with constant musical numbers. The occasional one is great though.
Guessing that is a regional thing, cause I can't say I have ever heard it used that way.
It wouldn't be the first time rummors were leaked/started to influence negotiations. *Eyes Deapool trailer*
I think you watched a completely different show than I did.
Why does being a 2D character make you not well written? Especially for a tertiary character.
Spoken like someone who has never talked to women who had jobs before the men came back from the war. Seriously, it was a huge deal that women entered into fields for the first time because of the war, then when the soldiers came back competent women who had proven themselves were pushed out of jobs they had held for years. Ignoring that fact would make it a terrible period piece.
I loved the fact that they kept cutting Peter off before he could say the words.
As another 90s kid who didn't really read comics, I will totally agree. X-Men were huge, Spider Man was less for me but I knew people into him. Batman was amazing. Cartoon exposure was everything, and those were the big 3.
Yes. Calling some of the things I've seen nominated outside of the puppies screed is a compliment to excrement.
They never were trolling the Hugos. Seriously.
I think Synova's comment about Straw Larry from Larry's post sums up a lot of the Sad Puppies feelings. They ignored Sad Puppies complaints when reasonable people were complaining, then mocked and made fun of them, so now they get the unreasonable people who just want to see them burn.
I've spent a lot of time with people who lament that video games are not taken seriously as a storytelling medium and art form. I think it is important that we begin to recognize that they are not just for children.
Why Not? The Hugos award Science Fiction, regardless of media. Video games are just as valid, and to many people are more valid, a media for telling a story as movies or books.
Looking. now that I'm thinking about it, I think it was in his reason for continuing with Sad Puppies 2, not in his founding with 1. 1, 2 and 3 all had works chosen with different agendas in mind, to prove different points.
Have you actually read any of his complaints? Sure he is an acerbic a#%+*$$, but that doesn't mean he is wrong.
That the categories no longer match what is actually being published, so things like multi-book series get completely ignored while the focus is on the short literature that doesn't actually pay authors enough to live on. Correia has had it as a major complaint since the beginning.
Why are you arguing that that somehow contradicts what I am saying? Its a feat I wasn't aware of, but is literally the designers already creating what I said should be able to be done. I think the combination of a feat tax, action requirement, bardic spell use, and contested perform check is a little overboard though.
Verbal components aren't defined as to what they are. There is no reason a bard shouldn't be able to hide his spell in a perform check.
I love the idea. Not sure about implementation, will need to look it over more.
One of the most frustrating things I have found in game is trying to play an enchanter. Charm Person is a completely worthless spell in almost all circumstances. Trying to play a manipulator is impossible if everyone around you realizes that someone just got magically whammied by you.
