Paris Crenshaw who has added things to Clockwork Gnome Publishing and our very own journal the Wayfinder is doing a membership push. So, if you are on facebook come over and give him a like. He is running a membership drive and will be producing some quality schwag if he gets his membership high enough. Plus you get a say in the design of the freebie product.

Just what the title says, name your top ten comic book super heroes. I have seen several lists and they tend to be all over the place. Superman, Batman, Spawn, and Spider-man all seem to make the list each time. Others seem to vary. Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Captain America, Silver Surfer, and the Punisher tend to be on most lists. Whats your top ten?

You know it's weird, we have a 3.X forum, a 4th/potential 5th edition forum, and a Other games Forum {excludes all things D&D} but no 1st/2nd edition forum or even OSR forum.Perhaps it is time to rename the forums a bit. Say D&D of days gone past and D&D current editions? I am sure someone can come up with a better idea than mine.

I was just wanting to ask a few questions of the older versions of the game and we have no real place to put the threads.

I have been thinking of re-skinning the main races to give a different feel for the game.

Humans - would remain untouched but have about 3 cultures. All of which are barbaric or northern aspected. In Golarian terms think Irrisen, Lands of the Linnorm Kings, and the Realm of the Mammoth Lords. With just a touch of Numeria and Varisia thrown in for good measure.

Dwarves - would be humans bred to be small and stocky for hard labor. They would be tied into one of the three aforementioned cultures.

Half-Orcs - Would be degenerate or bestial men. Those that have lived in seclusion so long that they are now deformed and almost de-evolved.

Elves - would be known as Easterlings. Men from the far realms who have modified themselves by deep connections to ancient magics. More Vudra than Minkai.

Half-Elves - Will be known as the Reborn. undead brought to life by the use of positive energy magic, through strange rituals. Their culture is connected to that of the Easterlings.

Halflings - would be Satyr. A strange arcanely modified race. Some scholars think they were woodland creatures given sentience and anthropomorphism by an ancient archmage. Think small sized Tieflings.

Gnomes - Elves, more in kin to leprechauns, brownies and such and keeping the strange hair and connection to the feyrealms.

So any suggestions?

The famous character Sanjûrô was in 4 films?

1961's Yôjinbô aka Yojimbo
1962's Tsubaki Sanjûrô aka Sanjuro
1970's Zatôichi to Yôjinbô aka Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo which in turn was one of around 20 - 30 Zatoichi films, which are still being made.
1970's Machibuse aka The Ambush: Incident at Blood Pass

The character and stories have been copied several times most notably by Clint Eastwood as the "Man with no Name" but was in fact copied from an American book The Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett.

6,775,235,700 - current, and counting

682,000,000 - 1700
580,000,000 - 1600
458,000,000 - 1500

Just mind boggling when you think of it. Could the numbers in the past maybe be wrong? Some one is always saying that such and such scientist possibly has under estimated how many people were in such and such region. Or some historian is always saying that the notes listed of the past were greatly exaggerated, unless archeological find show otherwise, which they seem to often do. Even then the numbers are staggering. The estimates are even larger. 9,746,000,000 by 2150 barring disasters or wars. Yet we cut funding for space exploration? Where do we think we will put everyone?

Via How stuff works

10. Benjamin Franklin did not discover electricity when his kite was struck by lightning in 1752. In fact, electricity was already well known at the time. Instead, Franklin was trying to prove the electrical nature of lightning.

During a thunderstorm, as Franklin flew a silk kite with a metal key near the end of the string, he noticed the fibers on the line standing up as though charged. He touched the key and felt a charge from the accumulated electricity in the air, not from a lightning strike. This was enough evidence to prove his theory that lightning was electricity.

Had the kite been struck by lightning, Franklin would likely have been killed as was Professor Georg Wilhelm Richmann of St. Petersburg, Russia, when he attempted the same experiment a few months later.

Why not?

This was inspired by another thread.

Previously, I certainly considered myself nationalistic. I served my country by purchasing stuff. I even watched a number of bad TV shows on Military Intelligence, which I expect, would have an even higher number of people with a strong sense of nationalism. After all, you must be willing to watch things which can, sometimes, be considered morally questionable (soft core and all that it entails) by merit of believing your side is in the right.

As I have gotten older, I have wondered if nationalism is all it is cracked up to be.

Nationalism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles. --Sum dude.

It seems a common theme in some circles to somehow suggest an opponent is inferior by questioning their Nationalism. "Why do you hate New Jersey?" This accusation often times has little to no relevance to the issue or the particular stance on that issue.

Besides, it seems to me possible one could be unnational without hating one's country. One could feel that no one country is above the others.

What exactly does Nationalism not mean and why is it something to strive not for?

fart in public and blame it on the pony.
