I want zola to live

Sovereign Court

Hey, I have 166 and have done nothing with my life.

Sovereign Court

140 is still above average.

Do you memorize everything you read, and understand the often contradictory and bizarrely placed and cross referenced rules and how they interact with each other? Something as straitforward as the druid requires having the druid page , the monster they're turning into, and the beast shape spell, as well as the polymorph section of the magic chapter all pinging off of each other.

Unless you can do that or pull it all in a quick reference, stick to playing fighters. Different classes require different levels of mastery, if you can't manage it without holding up the game, don't play it.

Sovereign Court

Well, Ming-Na had a lot of time to get it right.

Humour me with a question, wraithstrike.

I am your GM. I come to your house to play. Mid-session, I stand up, walk over to your cupboard, and smash three of your glasses.

You then make a scene about what the hells I am doing, while I kindly ask you to continue the game.

Who of us is to blame for holding up the game?

The game is only held up as long as it takes for you to get your things and leave.

perfect answer.

Sovereign Court

Ah I see. Cool. Really cool :D

Man do I dislike libertarians

Sovereign Court

Spells with [evil] descriptor are evil. And things created by those spells are, themselves evil. It's pretty simple. A skeleton may be mindless and not know right from wrong, but it is still evil just because it is a perversion of life and an affront to nature.

Sovereign Court

Darn. Well, get a better laptop. Netbooks aren't made for gaming.

Sovereign Court

I have to agree. They sure look nice on the walls, but still.

Sovereign Court

Also Xanatos speed chess.

Sovereign Court

Perfect representation of a Lawful Evil.

I've seen the first several episodes of Heroes. They put me off so badly that I never considered going back and watching it again. Same goes for Lost.

Yeah, Chuck had a very bittersweet ending. Kinda pointless. Felt rushed.

To be fair Heroes walked headfirst into a writers strike. First season was pretty good. Second season on, they were hiring scabs crossing the picket line to write it.

Heroes suffered from the writers having no idea how to write standard plots around characters that they'd introduced with plot-wrecking powers (like time travel). Every single season, some sort of artificial contrivance has to be introduced to explain why neither Hiro nor Peter just solved the threat-of-the-week by snapping their fingers. (Hiro has sworn to not use his powers that way! Peter is trapped in an alternate timeline! Hiro's powers are glitching because he's dying! Peter's powers went away! And now they've changed! And something, something, eclipse! Oh god, we're running out of excuses, cancel the show!)

I've never watched Heroes. They seriously had a character on Heroes named Hiro?

To quote the great Cosmo Kramer, that's like an ice cream man named Cone.

Yeah, he's a guy from Japan.

Sovereign Court

Perrin gets insufferable books 8 and on. Mat is the only character whose chapters I can say I honestly enjoyed. I actually tend to skip the most female character chapters on my second readings, just can't stand them.

Sovereign Court

Pretty rare, Drakes are dime a dozen though.

So I'm the only person who is willing to admit to evil?
In my experience as a homicide detective, I have had the opportunity to deal with some truly evil people - but not one of them thought they were evil. The human ability to justify one's own actions is unbelievable. Most of them understand social norms and cast themselves as neutral when given the opportunity, or rewrite their actions as somehow less morally culpable.

You have a difficult job. Thank you for doing it.

Sovereign Court

Or, just it is that evil people don't think they're evil.

I use drakes. Dragons are so rare that nobody has seen one in centuries.

Sovereign Court

Or you can go low-power and play dragon bloods.

Let's see. My world. Haven't named it yet.

Humans run the gamut from evil slaver empire and to a badass Sparta-like kingdom and a Nar Shaddaa kind of shanty city.

Elves have an island kingdom, are imperialistic and conquerors, having taken several beacheads on the main continent, consider every other shorter lived race lesser than them.

An offshoot of elves are almost your standard hippy elves, one with nature and all that, But are willing to back it up with weapons.

Gnomes live on an island, their society structured around a university like society where knowledge and advancement is valued beyond everything. They created steelborn.

Orcs are orcs, but Hobgoblins have an empire in one of the major deserts/badlands.

Dwarves have three distinct kingdoms, one is a classic dwarven kingdom, second is based on trade and diplomacy and the third is a society of builders.

Halflings are nomads, traveling everywhere, or making a living in cities, they used to have an empire, but a magical disaster wiped it off the face of the world, and they are what remains of a once great people.

Half elves are insanely rare, but basically the same. Half orcs as well.

Sovereign Court

Chaotic good definitely.

Sovereign Court

I absolutely, positively hate fishmalks.

Sovereign Court

Here is the trailer

Yes, it's a Subaru commercial, but from bits and pieces I pieced together, AoT is confirmed to come out next year.

Sovereign Court

Um, where is Edvard James Olmos?

You didn't like Werewolf: The Forsaken? Fair enough though, I've got a few friends who also prefer the old setting. Only the setting though, none of us miss the system.

I actually much prefer NWoD in general. The werewolves from OWoD used to really annoy me with their unbelievable stupidity. Stupid Wars of Rage, where they managed to wipe out almost every single breed of weres that could have actually helped them save the world.

the blindness of the oWoD Werewolves is part of what defines them, at least in the past. As later works came out the writers came up with understandable reasons why the garou fought the fera that made them a bit less bigoted and more ignorant/proud.
A fair point. My bigger problem with OWoD was the massive power discrepancies between the various supernatural beings. My friends and I have a tendency to run mashup games where we're all running different splats, and it's far easier to do with NWoD than OWoD. I just generally like the new setting better as well though, for the three core games and the others as well. Though I kind of want to play Orpheus again, that was an amazing game.

I like my werewolves as nigh unstoppable kill beasts. And I liked the power discrepancy. It was part of the system. It was good.

That would be AWESOME

I just ask flakey people not to come to my game after three sessions of no-showing. I don't care why.

Man I wish I could buy all their stuff. All of it.

I made Steelborn, which are my version of Warforged. Made by the gnomes, have potential to be anything.
The name is also a play on the word stillborn, because some suspect that gnomes who make Steelborn use souls of stillborn babies which they capture before they pass on and force them into Steelborn bodies.
So far, they've been a welcome addition to my setting.

That's not true, I haven't read any TV tropes in the past six months... see, I knew I could quit if I really wanted to... *twitch*
You know that they changed the layout?

I had no idea. Is the new one easier to read on a phone, in portrait view?

The old layout was a pain, but I would put up with it to have reading material at work.

If you have Android. Download Android troper from the app store.

Sovereign Court

There is a smartphone app for reading tvTropes.

He was a large part of my childhood and remains a large part of my adulthood.

I learned so much from him.

I will wear a lilac every year on this date.

Flash Gordon?

Become a plank instead.

Take a break. Or keep running till you completely burn out. A small disappointment is far better than a big one.

Film critics...meh.

Sovereign Court

If you're doing it to demonstrate how good you are, you're not really good, now, are you? :D

Both are good. But improving the overall conditions of the poor is far better in the long run.

Sovereign Court

About half a year. Maybe longer.

I think the author tried to convey that he prefers warm and loving altruism (i.e. directly feeding the poor at a soup kitchen and talking/helping a homeless man) instead of the high level for the greater good elitist altruism that seeks to solve problems at the society level.

And the second kind is far better than slopping soup in plates once a week.

The Pathetic Peasant Torturer

This GM is usually a good GM storywise and makes a good setting. But the PCs are pathetic, useless wretches, with either no equipment or basic, almost useless stuff.

And no matter how long they play, they will never get any better, or acquire equipment that works properly. And they will fail a lot.

Warhammer RPG? :D

It's ok in Warhammer FRP. Not when I want to play a heroic game of Pathfinder.

Too bad though. Smith is a hell of an actress. They could have saddled her with a much better written character.

Sovereign Court

Or Hulu. Or something. I ended up renting it on VHS :D Felt nice and old school.
