    Risky Business (Marie)

    Re: Risky Business (Marie) Marie had been mulling about what she was going to say, but Robert threw her off with his skilled flattery. She could not help but smile at his charm. "Ah, indeed! I do hope I did not interrupt anything. That was quite the performance!" The complement was true, and...

    OOC thread

    Re: OOC thread I'll admit, that's pretty far from any of my expertise, but that said I'm fairly confident that the Anglos adopted a lot of native ways fairly quickly. I couldn't give anything more specific than "there were definitely some differences". I think among the very upper classes...

    Games Discussion Thread

    Re: Games Discussion Thread Yeah, G2A is sketchy as hell. GMG is legit though, at the very least, so there are still options for the third party market. And of course GoG and such too. To many Gs...

    Risky Business (Marie)

    Re: Risky Business (Marie) This was quite the odd sight. Nothing was overtly wrong, of course, but it was not often one such as Robert would be in such a position as this. Not that Marie would complain, and she wasn't the sort to get bent out of shape over what others did for fun, but...

    Risky Business (Marie)

    Re: Risky Business (Marie) Though it was not her goal to provoke, Marie found the experience most helpful... once she realizes she hadn't pushed him too far. Knowing exactly where the limit lay for most of her kind was good knowledge indeed! "Yes, we have probably spent enough of each...

    Games Discussion Thread

    Re: Games Discussion Thread Honestly, I gave CoD a rest after MW2, and the new one is perhaps the first one since then I've actually even been mildly interesting. Good job to BF1 too, it's just I'm not particularly hyped for it. I think it'll be amazing, but I have too many things ahead of...

    Re: In today's news... Heh, if it makes you feel any better, even the people who work with quantum stuff pretty much throw up their hands in disgust at their findings too. There really is still a lot of conjecture, just that we've experimentally done entanglement now so we do know it's a...

    Re: In today's news... The problem is at this level we actually do sometimes need to argue about what words mean. Words are just constructs for our ideas, after all, and as such it really doesn't matter what combinations of sounds we use for something, but when it comes to advanced science...

    Re: In today's news... Well, I'll also admit that I've never heard of anything like that, so it could just exist and I've not heard of it, but I do know a lot about physics and I'm pretty sure it doesn't work like that. Quantum tunneling isn't really based on materials, but based on...

    OOC thread

    Re: OOC thread Some titles are based on the culture of the holder, and I think the Byzantines start with some late game laws in place that allow them to create special viceroyalties, which basically act like a normal Duchy but upon ruler death the Emperor gets the title back not their heir...

    In today's news...

    Re: In today's news... It's probably because the news doesn't fully understand that, but I'd say that while this is amazing, that's probably something that happens with *all* matter, just that we've been able to do it water because of practical engineering concerns. While not quite the same...

    Risky Business (Marie)

    Re: Risky Business (Marie) Marie considered this carefully. If she went in knowing he was going to try and trick her, that was probably defense enough, unless he was really, really good. The brief glimpse did more to explain the connection than a full book, likely, though Marie couldn't...

    Re: In today's news... Well, I'm just saying that without a paper trail, they'd have to pay out of pocket, and the cheapskates that started the mess seem to me like the type that would prefer not to spend an exorbitant amount of money on that ;) Just strike me as Scrooge rather than the...

    Re: In today's news... Eh, I've been to Flint, and quickly left as quick as I could. I'm not saying it's impossible, but these sorts of things happen there all the time. Also being involved with a lot of government stuff, I can tell you the government, especially a state or local government...

    Re: In today's news... While it's in no way good, thankfully the legal structure of that case is such that the proceedings won't be derailed. Since the case is on behalf of a minor, someone else can take over her position, and there's also something like like 68 co-plaintiffs. It's...

    OOC thread

    Re: OOC thread I'm partially disappointed in my newest upgrades for my computer because they are too efficient. It no longer makes any appreciable heat, and therefore in the winter I'm even colder. I suppose we should all go outside and look for a suitable gift for a hippy having a...

    Risky Business (Marie)

    Re: Risky Business (Marie) It took real effort not to get snotty with this attitude she was receiving right now. As it stood, Marie was getting real good at the narrow eyed, annoyed cringe look. Still, even with the lack of the story she got some useful context out of it. Marie doubted...

    OOC thread

    Re: OOC thread Our problem was everyone wanted to be deckers (hackers). We had two, and also a rigger, who was basically a decker that just specialized in hacking vehicles specifically, and drones. To do a lot of their stuff they had to fully jack in to the matrix, so more often than not...

    OOC thread

    Re: OOC thread Sometimes the only way to teach companions is to let them fail ;) That reminds me of the time in D&D though where we spent 30 real life minutes arguing about how to use a bucket of lava to make a steam explosion and blow up a false wall, only to find out the wall was an...

    OOC thread

    Re: OOC thread I think the GM got kind of fed up with me after I had us infiltrate a super-super max prison under the guise of a replacement kitchen staff who were bringing cupcakes (laced with knockout pills) for "staff appreciation day". He did however get a kick out of the time the...
