  1. Past hour
  2. I like the way you think...plot devices...yeah, not only could players have to play CP to keep those favors, but if they don't want to, a major plot device or twist could come out of such interactions.
  3. Most of the company are women and exchanging gossip with their table-mates.
  4. 1915: The Death of Innocence by Lyn Macdonald This book details what was happening on the Western Front for the British soldiers. So you have the battles of Neuve Chapelle and Loos. And then the mess that was Gallipoli. The sheer number of deaths day by day due to shell fire and snipers when the battles are not on is staggering. What it does show is that the Germans could be beaten even if there is a shortage of shells and things do not go well. It is something you don't tend to hear about. The start of the war certainly and then the Somme in 1916 but 1915 does not get much coverage except Gallipoli. A great read for me.
  5. We need a petition to change it to the Big Kaboom Theory.
  6. The 1.7.2-beta2 build is now available via the beta channels for iOS and Android. Patch notes: GMs and players may now text message one another Increased the amount of messages which may be displayed Added a notification sound when a player is selected by the GM
  7. Just to add to this CEO compensation has risen 940% since 1978, while typical worker compensation has risen only 12%
  8. Last night's weird dream: I was riding Trax (public transport light rail) through a huge, unfamiliar parking structure. I was trying to figure out where my stop was, all the while listening to a podcast of NPR's Audie Cornish talking about controversies surrounding the upcoming NCAA men's basketball tournament.
  9. Today
  10. I don't know, I'll ask. Sorry about the late response, I've been busy.
  11. And Cancer strikes again ! Biggest explosion since Big Bang detected. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-51669384
  12. They get you to do their naked balloon modelling segment New Topic: What the Coronavirus did next ! (the dafter the better)
  13. Qucik, Robin! Get your Bat Throwing Flail.... Ohh! Flail of bolos. Awesome.
  14. FWIW Dsatow I am looking at the staff flail. In Eastern Martial Arts a two section staff. Both Eastern and Western are based off the farmers flail.
  15. It's a board thing. We have to derail threads and sometimes need to called on it.
  16. L Marcus has tried to get people to accept the Arctic Triangle, the Arctic Square and the Arctic Rectangle.
  17. This is a political thread and this is a political story. Small p politics though rather than party politics. What a hero this guy is... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-51332811 Doc
  18. So, I've been online looking at flail fights on youtube. For the most part, the flail seems to be less used to get around one's shield as to counter people using their weapons to block. It doesn't seem to be a great weapon compared to a sword but it isn't super bad. But in comparison with other options, I wouldn't want to use one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukvI295xDRw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWVY3EqU6Ok https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haSHLtn-6tE And here's a guy (and he's not the only one) that basically says that the flail isn't the best medieval weapon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ox4sCJnCpzo Finally, here's a historian from the Smithsonian. Not a video but an interesting read. He believes the flail might be symbolic or even an experimental weapon which failed. He does note that two handed flails did exist, but the flail as a one handed weapon probably did not. https://www.publicmedievalist.com/curious-case-weapon-didnt-exist/
  19. Oh I get what your saying. However no nobody who said about using (or in my case) have used them suggested what you described. I gave a specific example of how I allowed my son to bend the rule about throwing one thug into another in the same phase to work. It didn’t affect the overall game and in someways it sped up that scene. This is what is frustrating (no with you) but I said repeatedly how and when to use a HAP but the detractors just ignore what is said and go to extremes as you posted.
  20. From Fantasy Hero 2ed (which uses the 4ed rules). At work so page has to wait.
  21. I think you misunderstood what I was asking for. I understand what the -1 OCV is for. What I am asking for is where the reference comes from. What book? What edition? What page?
  22. In 2018 Trump fired the entire pandemic response team and cut funding for the CDC so drastically it had to abandon disease prevention efforts in 80% of countries, including China.
