  1. I challenge you!

    Magenta is a town in Italy with less than twenty five thousand people. Burgundy is a region of France with over a million and a half people. My money is on Burgundy in case of a conflict. Justice vs Mercy Lucius Alexander And a purple palindromedary
  2. We have threads for quotes from games, books, movies, etc. But I think there should be a thread for quotes from life. With or without context. Things you have said or heard yourself, that were not directly lifted from gaming or fiction. From my divorce: My wife: "It's not just a sex thing with you, is it? It's a romantic thing." Me: "You've only now understood that? I always thought it was something that went without saying." After a silence - Me: "It's taken me seven years to realize, that you and I speak a completely different language of the heart." Lucius Alexander Many palindromedary taglines would probably qualify for this thread....
  3. In other news...

    I see it! I see it right there! There's a furry porn thread? Lucius Alexander The palindromedary is waiting for opposing counsel to object, as Lucius is obviously witnessing the badger
  4. Answers & Questions

    Look, I know they say great things about California, but think of the wilderness you have to go through to get there - if you don't die of dysentery it'll be the Paiutes, or your wagon train could take a wrong turn and get lost or the snows come early in the mountains and then it's all over but the crying - why don't stay here in the East where it's much safer? A: No sir, I don't like it, I don't like it one bit. Lucius Alexander I'm going to have lunch with a palindromedary, thank you.
  5. Answers & Questions

    Q: Why is the Silver Surfer wearing a "naughty nurse" uniform? A: No Comment Lucius Alexander The palindromedary suspects Galactus isn't the only one who is sick....
  6. NGD Scenes from a Hat

    She's buying a stair way to heaven..... Lucius Alexander When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed, with a word she can get a palindromedary
  7. I agree it's worth doing. I' admit to being dubious about whether it will get done, given who it is who has to do it. Lucius Alexander I can always count on a palindromedary, though, to give me tagline. Well, almost always.
  8. Thanks to the 27th amendment, it can't take effect until next congress even if it DID pass. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary explains that this amendment forbids congress from changing their own pay - for better OR worse - they can only change the pay of future congresses.
  9. Are historical figures draftable? Lucius Alexander I know better than to draft a palindromedary
  10. Weapon Types vs. Armor Types

    There's an affliction codfishing between my boot and the door? I kick it out of the way and THEN kick in the door! Lucius Alexander The palindromedary says that's one way to get your kicks...
  11. Supergirl

    I think he was 188 cm. How tall is the average Kryptonian? Lucius Alexander the palindromedary asks can a Kryptonian be average?
  12. OKaayyy....maybe you can be more clear about just what, exactly, your character is actually doing? I'm not sure I understand the distinction you are making between "activate a power" that does damage, and "the target suffers damage from the attack." As for Damage Over Time, I think it would be a pretty anal retentive Game Operations Director who wouldn't let you redefine "per day" as "each time the target sleeps." But you might want to add a Limitation that it only works if the target DOES sleep - a character who never or seldom sleeps might be immune. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary sleeps one head at a time.
  13. Can you explain why they don't "really match up?" What is it they don't do that you need done, or that they do that you wish to avoid doing? Lucius Alexander Palindromedary Over Time.
  14. Answers & Questions

    Q: What are you looking so happy about? A: I know how to play the drum Lucius Alexander Insert palindromedary tagline here

  16. Longest Running Thread EVER

    Is there a pun thread? Lucius Alexander The palindromedary thinks if you can conduct us to it that would be super
  17. Actually, they're under Department of Homeland Security. They used to be under Department of Transportation. Lucius Alexander At one time, the palindromedary was under the Air Force.
  18. Just kidding? And here I was hoping to find a nice man for V'han to settle down with, someone to make her realize there's more to life than conquest and convince her to abandon the vain dream of uniting the multiverse politically and to take up more fulfilling pursuits. If I don't like my card draw, can I use one of the Options to draw again? Lucius Alexander The palindromedary asks if we can get someone besides Lucius to draw the card, as Lucius has no artistic ability and finds it hard to draw a straight line (and sometimes even hard to draw a punch line)
  19. RIP: Dolores O'Riordan

    I light the candle and turn the wheel for one I wish had Lingered a little longer. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary intones, What is remembered, lives.
  20. Complicate the Person Above

    Opale's plan might have worked, had she not taken Death Tribble into her confidence. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary sticks a slender knife through the end of a loaf of bread
  21. I challenge you!

    Jones may have been more important in winning the war, but Hogan was better at making Nazis look silly. Decision at the open refrigerator door: Leftover pizza or leftover chicken? Lucius Alexander I already know what the palindromedary will say
  22. I challenge you!

    According to Prestor John's letter, the Fountain of Youth is in his realm. So, find the one, find the other. Procrastinations: Put it off to tomorrow vs put it off indefinitely Lucius Alexander Having come to the end of the post I can no longer put off crafting a palindromedary tagline
  23. Longest Running Thread EVER

    Snake oil maybe... Or that... Lucius Alexander Or feed them to a palindromedary
  24. Westworld's Hosts in Hero System terms

    High non-resistant Defense Low Resistand Defense Heavily conditional Regeneration with Resurrection. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary is kicking now
  25. The days when it was inconceivable for the phrases "United States of America" and "secret military tribunals" to belong in the same sentence, except in a context like "The United States of America condemns the practice of secret military tribunals in certain nations that do not share our democratic values and our respect for human rights." Lucius Alexander Telling a palindromedary about the good old days....
