I remember that one! It was the one with the big pumped action star in that role as wossname, some sort of cool ex-military role, lots of inane autofire, stupid one-liners, and the love interest with the wonky hair!

Collect all his skeletons in the surfing history. Add in various things humans have hangups about as needed.

Make a fake ID as a blackmailer and threaten to send the file to his employer, unless he pays you.

Use the money to send a hitman for him, or tell him thanks and just send the stuff to his employer anyway.

Wipe the evidence of the blackmailer ID.

GMB has been researching, and as the fruit of that research, he now has a family of six giant, prehistoric sloths hanging from branches he set up throughout his living room.

Sad thing about cheese graters and salt water is that adult people of your species have been thoroughly exploring how to do things with them to other such people since cheese graters and salt water were invented...

Yes. Dog breeding has taken a decidedly dark turn in recent decades, with people breeding on what dogs look like rather than health and intelligence and other things needed for a dog meant to work in some fashion. As usual, this makes for sellable pups... But with awful genetic disorders, behavioural issues and so on. It turns out inbreeding really is not a good idea - who knew???

Exactly, Sharoth. Exactly.

GoatToucher went through the Tomb of Horrors once. He doesn't talk about what happened then. Neither does Acererak.

I finally saw it. I was... Disappointed.

Spoiler:
It felt like a rehash of A new hope, to a ridiculous degree. Even the start on Tat... Sorry, Jakku. Han in Obi Wan's role, with what that entailed. The superweapon blowing up a... SEVERAL planets. Trench run. Droid carrying data from death zone. Etc etc etc. The next issue is the hysteric dropping of references to earlier movies. Rey digs treasures from a downed SD. AND sleeps in a dead AT AT. Third, and this feels like the most serious issue: The movie makes EVERYTHING a secret. It builds everything up to the next movie. Unlike A new hope, which presents us with a pretty clear conflict, and it wasn't known whether there would be another. All told, it was not a bad movie, because the new elements were good. I guess I wish they would have had a bit more confidence.

It seems to me that whenever the USG calls something "enhanced" anything, it is something everyone should stay the f**% away from. If they one day call something enhanced nutrition or enhanced intelligence, we're probably all screwed.

I don't get you, Fiend. Getting a visit by a succubus is a precious gift. They are cultured, sophisticated, beautiful women. With the right preparations, you can have a magnificent encounter with them, SAFELY.

Yeah. My vote is for wights, too. Or a herd of smelly otyughs. For a night they will NEVER forget.

"Hello, Twitch. How was your day?"
"AAAAH!!!"

Honestly, I think it may be misguided not to talk about it and hoping new people will just learn the new situation. Consider: There are people in various places on the net, discussing from memory, the various statistics of 1st edition AD&D monsters. Inconsistencies in very old modules. How recurring NPCs changed in the eighties. And so on. All in all, I trust you guys and your decisions, I merely think this might not work as you think. And I also don't think it's a big issue for most people if something is officially changed, just like rules errata.

I had my last milk tooth extracted today. It was over in 10-15 seconds. I had been dreading it all day, and now I feel like a big baby. There were two moments of a queasy, wrong feeling, and then it was over. Local anaesthesia is fading now, and the post-adrenaline shakes are over. Mrgh.

There is another, but you can't use that yourself.

Honestly, to truly do justice to the PF/3.5 system, you would need something three dimensional. The best way this has been done for a tactical game is, IMNSHO, the original X-COM games.

You don't know the footage? Treppa, you took down the brutal Clawyer as he was rampaging across town! Only, his sidekick shot you in the head with the Disruption Ray before running off.

Not as sad as us at Paizo taking the position that if you're an atheist, your only option is to become enslaved in the afterlife. Forgotten Realms did that and it was the wrong call and several folks rightly were annoyed by it.

The original intention for atheist souls was that two things could happen to them—in the same way religious souls have two options. They can end up being punished for failing at life, or they can end up being rewarded.

In the atheist's case, the punishment is being sent to the Boneyard to help bolster against the end.

The reward is being set free into the universe as a free-roaming spirit to observe and revel in the various realities.

What you saw creeping into the setting's canon was, I believe, influence about how atheist souls are handled in the Forgotten Realms.

Well, I am a diehard atheist, and I would be okay with either. It has to be more interesting than mere oblivion, right? Thank you for the clarification. The worst take on it would be the 2nd edition Guide to Hell, which saw atheist souls gathered up directly by Asmodeus to fuel his plans, in Hell.

I went to McDonald's and ordered a McGangbang. Kind of disappointing. Not enough meat between the buns. I have a plan, though. What we gotta do is go bigger. Skip these limp McDoubles and McChickens. Get a double Quarter Pounder with cheese and one of them Buttermilk Crispy Chicken sandwiches. Make sure it has bacon. Now that'll make a meal. Needs an impressive name, though. A mere bang is not enough. We shall call it...

The McOrgy.

I support this fully.

It doesn't matter if it evolves, or if it conducts research, or if it caters to the expectations parents have, or if it "bases ratings on the human judgment of raters", etc, it is still a group designed to strike certain kinds of content from the market. It provides no other function than limiting who can see what.

If you wanted an actually useful ratings model, why is there nothing other than "no sex, drugs, swearing or violence (that is not cartoon)"? I wanted to buy a good game for a three-year-old once. Every game had clear ratings on the above content, but NOT ONE had a recommendation as to what age someone would likely have to be to a) be able to reasonably play the game, what with manual coordination, difficulty and complexity of the plot, b) appreciate the intricacy of the setting/plot/etc, and c) like the graphical design of the game.

Yes, as you say, there are other people involved who act as censors. That doesn't mean the rating boards do not.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

They are still censors, and with no arguments actually forthcoming to why they shouldn't be.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

It has been claimed that ratings institutes are not censors. How are they not? They decide on what people are allowed to see, handing out death sentences for various movies, with massive budgets that will not be recouped without certain ratings. Over time, they have caused a massive streamlining and sanitation of the entire media production. Not to mention, they work from pretty questionable principles, such as the one about not showing proper results of violence. In America, showing someone bleeding seriously, or having a seizure from traumatic brain damage, or the like, will doom the movie to a very small-audience rating. In Japan, I have heard that NOT showing proper results of violence has the same effect. It sounds to me like the japanese have a far better idea here. IF movie violence is desensitizing, not showing what it results in should be worse. This is, as a rule, not questioned in American debate.

I have seen Cutthroat Island, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, The 13th Warrior, and Sahara. I would have to say that all of them had points that I liked. They were ambitious movies, but then didn't sell. Of those, the 13th Warrior is the one I would agree is completely idiotic (formation-riding cannibal neanderthals... wut?), but even that one had things like the language barrier scene, good sets, and so on. Even so many years later, it is a movie I remember, and I'd say that counts for something. There are too many movies that disappear from memory.

It has been lamented that the mid-budget movie is dead today. That may be a reason why producers try for big budgets instead, ending up with a big budget movie that draws a mid-budget crowd. Or it could have been a fault with the ad campaign. Or the wrong launch time. Or a hundred different things. Remember, New Line Cinema went belly-up, and they made the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It is obviously a difficult and unpredictable business.

People are way too critical.

Blinking means not showing aggression. Eye contact is a very aggressive communication in cats. The proper thing to do is showing you see them, quickly, and then looking away. It is, perhaps, what leads cats to decide to "OMGANALLERGICHUMANIMUSTCUDDLEYOUFOREVERANDEVER!!!"

No we are not. Mrgh. Blame when you aren't at fault stinks. :/

So, let's see... the politicians are representatives of various districts. What if they were put in an arena, say, twelve at a time, and given no equipment, needed to be the last one surviving?

Consider: McDonalds India has, by deciding not to serve beef or pork, appeased the hindu majority by making sure EVERYONE, including non-hindus, living in India can't go to McDonalds and get beef or pork. Censorship of speech and ideas follows the exact same lines.

Once upon a time, in the late nineties, I was involved with a MUD. This one had a welcome screen, composed of ASCII characters. The internet had just become a thing, and nobody thought much about it, since it went fast enough. However, the admins of the MUD changed this, because of a poor guy stuck with a 2400 modem. The MUD had a connection timeout if you took too long to connect fully, and he couldn't even log on because his modem couldn't process the ASCII image before he got logged out.

Ragadolf is closer to the truth. It makes you ignore the pain. It is the same thing as the post-training buzz deafening your pain. Oh, and it does give you nausea, and lowers your respiration.

Morphine is an awful thing. When you are in an insane amount of pain, there is no substitute. You get a fluffy, uninteresting, warm darkness instead of pain. But, oh, when the pain really is not that bad? Eurgh. You can't think. You can't focus. You can't even breathe properly.

Reminds me of why I don't like to drink alcohol.

Oh how cruel it would be for you to favourite another then. The angels would weep. You would make 2097 so so sad.
