Heh, a sports guy eh? Well since you haven't been introduced yet, again I was more poking the others (Cruxxcarr, Jethryk, and Shendalyn) for their opinion on our ambush site options.
Another post missed... my apologies
Im a fan of some sports. Mostly ice hockey but I especially like sports that are on the global stage. Like the World Cup and the Olympics.

Completely understandable on all counts.
We have a couple of players that dont do well in wars at all. But! they make an effort and I figured Elder status was a nice recognition for that effort. All of our members donate although some more than others which I guess is due to mostly to the differences in amount of activity between players.
I just had to kick a guy that has missed the last three wars. I even called him out directly in Chat and via Clan email and he never answered but he would come on the day after the War ended and request troops. Not fair to the others at all and frustrating to boot.
It would definitely be cool to have you guys but if you find another cozy home that is just as cool. Our door will always be open.

^ Vaughn - you guys are more than welcome to join us. Clan name is Empty Throne. I'll let the other elders/coleaders to be expecting 2 recruits.
FYI - we've set some clan rules. It will be easier to relay them here.
What's going on with your clan?
Male Pale Master
Nice plan. Glad to hear Im not the only one with long term goals.
Im 3 days from TH8, 5 days from lvl 2 dragons, 1 day from Hogs. Im almost completly upgraded except for air defenses, theyre at lvl 3 and my last mortar to lvl 5 is 3 days away. Had to start on lvl 2 Tesla just to spend gold since I keep topping out on gold at 3 mill. I really need a 5th builder so Im saving gems.
I'll probably upgrade barbs, giants, wallbreakers, wizards, dragons...hmm... I hardly ever use archers. Might have to check out that tactic.
^ It is played that way by some (unfortunately) but I see plenty of gamers doing both, rolling the dice and playing out the results. The game only needs to be as rule heavy as you want it. Thankfully there's plenty of games offering a 'theater of the mind' play style which requires lots of imagination.
Male Pale Master
^ no worries there Vaughn. Ive had a couple of 300K+ raids lately and am about maxed out gold wise with almost no way to spend it until my TH is upgraded...4 days left! Woot!
Sidenote - Tark and all - you guys still need a WotW Divine caster? My Unholy Barrister would love to hop into an active game.
At first the facial tics and body mannerisms of Jerry and Lester were too similar for me. The no spine having, bumbling salesman act had already been done. I'll definitely agree that Lester has completely changed and become quite the doppelganger.
Are these just two variations of the same story?
This +1. Our TT DM let us know long ago that we shouldn't expect to be able to slay every monster we come across. If we're dumb enough and not tough enough and we get killed then that's on us.
But I wouldn't play with a DM that had a house rule that stated 'Expect to Die, Horribly' either. That makes it seem like its player vs DM and a player will never win that war.
Cthulhundrew and DM Barcas:
There was a moment when they got on Xavier's private plan where Magneto reached for the paper and Logan extended his bone claws to stop him. Magneto said 'Imagine if those were covered in metal'
Totally plausible that they might rewrite to have Magneto be the one that laced Logan with adamantium.
Oops on the movie verse link but it did also happen in the comics just not in the Days of Future Past story line...
"When the X-Men fight members of the extraterrestrial race known as the Brood, Xavier is captured by them, and implanted with a Brood egg, which places Xavier under the Brood's control. During this time, Xavier assembles a team of younger mutants called the New Mutants, secretly intended to be prime hosts for reproduction of the aliens. The X-Men discover this and return to free Xavier, but they are too late to prevent his body from being destroyed with a Brood Queen in its place; however, his soul remains intact. The X-Men and Starjammers subdue this monstrous creature containing Xavier's essence, but the only way to restore him is to clone a new body using tissue samples he donated to the Starjammers and transfer his consciousness into the clone body. This new body possesses functional legs, though the psychosomatic pain Xavier experienced after living so long as a paraplegic takes some time to subside. Subsequently, he even joins the X-Men in the field, but later decides not to continue this practice after realizing that his place is at the school, as the teacher of the New Mutants."
I dont that exact comic either but this quote was taken from the Marvel wiki - Link
"However, to escape death, Xavier transferred his mind to the body of his brain-dead twin brother, P. Xavier, who was under the care of Dr. Moira MacTaggert at Muir Island."
I dont think its fair to compare artifacts to experimental medicinal cures.
and in comics the heroes die just as much as the villains. I have the issues where Kraven the Hunter killed off Spidey and there was no butt hurt amongst fans when Spidey crawled out of the grave 6 issues later after having just been given a strong sedative.
of course people in the movie derived that the cure was permanent. Because thats what other characters in the movie said. That doesnt make it fact. If it wasnt permanent it wouldnt be a big enough threat for mutants to even worry about. They and the audience were supposed to think that it was permanent. But it wasnt. Enough said. There was no proof in the movie that it was. Quite the contrary. The small scene at the end left no doubt (for most of us anyways) that it was in fact temporary. Rejoice in the fact that the movie was able to get you to buy into that reality for the duration of the film. Although Im not sure why you did. Ive been reading Xmen since the early 80's and didnt buy it for a second. Nothing is set in stone in the Marvel universe. Characters constantly are 'killed off' or lose their powers only to have both come back at a later date. Thats canon.
Im a tad over the hill and been gaming since the fifth grade.
Theres been lots of changes over the years and they've mostly been good as many have pointed out here already. Although I still curse those weapon charts from Rolemaster.
For me the biggest improvement has been the internet and in effect boards like this one where we can game with others all over the world without having to schedule certain days and times that will work with everyone's schedules...which is growing more difficult the older I get. Add to that that this medium almost enforces actual role playing and deep character development. Sure, we still get those that just post a skill check, attack roll or save without anything else but they are few and far between.
Ive been lucky to have found a few people to play with in RL that focus on Roleplay and some of our best times are when we fail but stay true to character. But here on the Paizo boards, Ive been more than impressed and inspired by the vast amounts of creative ideas for campaigns and characters. Glad to be a part of it.
1. the 'cure' was derived from a mutant who's powering deadening powers only worked while within a certain range from said mutant. Not once was it evident that the 'cure' was permanent. Was it perfectly acceptable to you that Xavier was using a 'cure' that denied him his powers in order to be able to walk? One that as soon as he quit administering it he got his powers back. Pretty much the same thing as to what Magneto went through.
2. Aranna summed up my views on this exactly. Elegant! That one little scene was enough for me to know that Magneto would be getting his powers back. Pretty simple really.
all in all it looks like haters are just going to hate
Cool. Give me a name or allow me the honor and I can expand on that.
Syndir Apep, Charred Wyrm of Despair:
Writhing through the ashes of his latest triumph, Syndir Apep exulted in his scaly, sinuous form. He had risen far after being hatched having eaten most of his brood mates and sought nothing more than to sate his hunger on human flesh and to burn the world to a crisp. All this was for naught as he was later cornered by the great Zhong Kui, who sought to slay the wyrm and so add it to his amry of 80,000 demons. Such was Zhong's power and Syndir knew this so when he felt the demon lord's sword slice through him he separated his soul and slithered off to hide in the womb of a woman in a distant village. He had stalked this village many times as he knew they revered his true form here. He would wait and plot in the body of a child until he could manifest as a man.
Xian Shilin Liang was brash in his youth and jovial as a young adult. Although this was usually a front to hide the inner turmoil that plagued his mind. Born under auspicious circumstances in Snake Village, Xian had never gotten to know his mother who had died giving birth to him. One elder confided that he had been born in an eggshell like covering and this had traumatized his mother beyond any healing. Others said that she had been weak before and died from the shame of being with child out of wedlock.
Once he had been weaned he was given over to the care of an older couple. His adoptive father was a sukong to many in the Snake Style popular in their village. Xian excelled in his studies and it seemed to come to him almost too easily much to the chagrin of his father who valued hard work in exchange for skill. He taught that perseverance tempered ego. This was in direct contrast to the hissing whispers that had always writhed through his dreams teaching him of entitlement, self worth and greed. Before long the student had surpassed the master and left his village behind to seek out the truth of both philosophies on his own.

Theres some good strategies online (cant find them right now but I'll keep looking) as to what trophy count to keep depending on your Town Hall level. IIRC for TH7 you should stay in the 900-1200 range.
And yes, the game is a test in patience after a certain point. Im trying to save Gems for a 4th builder because of this.
Male Pale Master
Thanks for compliments Vaughn. Ive been doing good versus Raids except for leaving my Town Hall so exposed but that's part of my strategy for tanking my trophy count. If by farming you mean raiding then yes, I crank a lot of raids throughout the day. No hiding behind a shield for me! Im mad jealous of your Barbarian King. I never thought to use Gems to score one. Good idea!
He wont so much know that he was a demon dragon but there will be an inner conflict pushing him towards that end now for reasons unknown to my hero. Better?
So our heros could in effect use multiple Styles at the same time (using the Style Feats)?
