-Honestly I learned that just because a person throws dice at a table, he can still be as shallow, spiteful, petty, and evil as a man on a motorcycle with gang tattoos. He just shows it in different ways. Before gaming with real people I though 'gamers' were all a discriminated against minority, an oppressed group. Now I know better.
-I'd love your notes...pm me, and I'll send the address
Have you ever felt at odds with someone on the boards even though you've never interacted with them directly?
-In Mir, my homebrew, an Orc is at least a 1st level Barbarian, with heroic stats. Even with trash loot they will kill you, easily. Throw into that they are better smiths than elves and you are looking at LE 6'6" Killing machines. Will saves spells make the day.
I almost live there...well 2 hours away. It's quite amazing one of the staff ended up at John's Hopkins.
I find sci-fi and pulp settings better for horror than fantasy. I always tell players in a pathfinder game, at lv. 1 you are beter than 85% of the population. By level 10 you are better than 99.9% of the population. EVER.
-Sexual morality as good/evil is a very cultural concept. Marrying 15 year old girls was common in this country 100 years ago. Today, you'd be in jail. Heck my great-grandmother was not only her husband's 1st cousin but also 16.
-It does...its cleary an adjecive/adverb made from a noun. Unless you use it to mean dirty...but that is out archaic.
Nick's crazy cliche to making people work together
-exactly! Letting a vampire repent and escape would be heresy!
-That's not heresy, that's infidelity. In other words heretics disbelieve a teaching or teaching of the church. You are disagreeing with the whole focus of the church. You'd simply convert to something else in that case.
-I went to a good university, but my parents were very strict, and so I had no experience with women until university. I spent way too muchtime chasing women, and working part time jobs to get money, to spend on dates and stuff. I ended up moving to Russia with some girl.
-For the record I wrote that while drinking, (see the beautiful spelling of 'society' in my previous post)
-It's interesting how people are talking about pornography likes it's addictive. This is a mental addiction, not a medical addiction. Heroin Junkies, and Alcoholics suffer actually medical dangers when they stop taking the drug.
It is not that the alignemnt system represents real life, but it represents a polytheist world where gods have magic powers, and can and will raise people from death.
