There's no drama, that was like three years ago, at least.

What's the "flaming bike" bit? I haven't been around here long enough to understand.

Certain topics are considered faux pa here, mostly politics, sports, and dragging here drama from other topics. Freehold is a self-appointed guardian with his bike-flinging catapult (or is that a trebuchet?) and uses flaming bikes as a warning shots...

IMO It's the reason this thread has reached such an epic amount of posts

Peace out.

Freehold is sometimes overzealous in his judgments.

Erm, you'll have to be more specific about "he"...

...I don't see any accusations of "wrongdoing", other than my complaints about someone criticizing my choice of wording in naming my thread.

Hardly "wrongdoing", more, "Being irritating on the internet".

Which is hardly a prosecutable offense...

So . . . . Why are the bikes aflame?? Just curious.

He was working an overnight shift alone at a bike shop, when a flaming bicycle crashed through the window, silhouetted by the moon. In that moment, he instantly understood how to strike fear into the hearts of criminals... {mental note: must now convince Bruce Timm and Paul Dini to create Freehold: The Animated Series}

Good thing I don't trust in technological terrors, then.

Er, I thought the rules were:

(1) No bringing arguments from other threads here, and
(2) no calling out individuals here based on their behavior on other threads.

Many of us have complained about things that have happened in many other threads here. So, since CY and I haven't started arguing, and haven't specifically named the individual, I think we're still dancing on the knife-edge that is the rules of FaWtL.

LOL. You should know me well enough by now to know that I'd just duck.

I've been on the internets too long to spend my life in pointless arguments.

In ancient times (in terms of the internet), we had a really unfortunate troll who followed a poster here, and made things miserable for a while, not even arguing the original point. So there is some precedent for someone who is really motivated seeing something here and deciding to be a d*&$ about it.

Oh, it's far, far too epic in scope to describe in a few short sentences. The best I can muster is:

(1) Magnuskn did not care for the AP in general, nor the mythic rules specifically, and started an entire thread dedicated to disparaging both.
(2) Said poster chose to play Devil's Advocate and argue with Magnuskn about both the mythic rules and the AP, unfortunately suggesting that Magnuskn might be lacking in GM abilities if he was unable to manage running the AP
(3) Magnuskn, being Magnuskn, took offense
(4) Massive battles ensued.

It's the usual. If someone posts something you don't like, it is far, far better to ignore it than to respond and give it wings...

EDIT: Here's the linky.

I must correct myself: Magnuskn didn't start the thread; he only defended it vigilantly when others suggested that mythic wasn't broken, and it was GM problems that were to blame...

There is a case for precedent. Still, some eloquent observations were made above. In light of this and the badgers own call for clemency, the aforementioned flaming bike barrage has been replaced with the following .

I feel clever.I have a problem in my fantasy setting. I have 20th century tech, particularly propeller driven planes, because they are cooler than jets. Prop fighters are state of the art military tech. I also want commercialized space travel. The two naturally conflict. If we can get into space that easily, we can build fighter jets. So I came up with this about 7 months ago:

Spoiler:
The gods (now departed from the world) have messed with terrain features quite a bit. Thanks to divine shenanigans nobody really understands (I go by the Greek system of the gods being able to be spectacularly immature at times), there is a three mile column of zero gravity around the North and South poles, surrounded by a weird bubble that prevents the atmosphere from entering the vacuum but does not bar the movement of people and vehicles. This world has a late 1940s level of vehicular and architectural technology (though they haven't invented jet engines) and a modern level of communications technology, and integrates low level Eberronish magic into technology. These zero gravity wells at the poles are what allows space travel, given the lack of rocket engines powerful enough to exit the atmosphere with any significant payload. This is important, because the only way to get really useful stuff like adamantine, mithril, and some useful magical phlebotinums is to mine it from space. So, despite the pre-Apollo mission tech level, there is enough space traffic to make NASA go berserk with envy. Of course, one can only go into space via the North or South pole.

Well, I just thought of what the tube is and why it exists. Instead of being a zero gravity tube, it's some sort of invisible giant multidirectional tractor beam. It actually connects the planet to tubes criss-crossing through space to other planets and important moons and such, and is centered over each planet's axis. The function of the tube was to allow gods to travel the galaxy by using the tube to pull their chariots or whatever in whichever direction within the tube they want to go. Humans have figured out how to connect a ship to the tube and get the tube to propel the ship, thereby allowing space travel without jet engjne technology. This also creates a good reason for space based warfare. If your military controls part of the tube, you control trade and travel through that region. If you control a planet or moon with desireable resources, there might not be another on the tube anywhere nearby that's feasible to colonize.

Thanks! That's actually a really good point. Still, though, if you can build Apollo style multi-stage rockets, you have the technology for air breathing jet engines.

Still, I can see uses for single stage rockets. A means of short distance out of tube travel? Like, maybe space stations are right next to the tube but not in it, so as not to take up valuable tube space? You'd need rockets on every spaceship if that were the case.

Actually, if you wanna stay 40's tech, I'd think a steampunk-ish type space elevator would work awesome with your micro-G tubes.

You put ship on elevator. Ride to orbit. Take off. profit :)
