  1. He also said the character had a Code VS Killing. Not an assassin.
  2. You could call her Hecate, after the ancient goddess of magic, witchcraft, and all sorts of other things. While thought to be a Greek goddess, it is believed her worship predates the Olympian pantheon, and according to the Oxford Classic Dictionary-- …outlandish in her infernal aspects, she is more at home on the fringes than in the centre of Greek polytheism. Intrinsically ambivalent and polymorphous, she straddles conventional boundaries and eludes definition. The way I see it, the goddess is open to interpretation as to her her aspects, especially by your character, who could easily give her a feminist interpretation. Her teleport ability could be associated with Hecate's role as the goddess of doorways. Here's a few links about the goddess. Hope that helps.

  3. They may be out there, but as of now they seem to be vastly outnumbered by the Trumpheads, as would be indicated by the results of the 2020 Republican Presidential Primaries. Given the opportunity to reject his hatred, his juvenile behavior, and his lack of competence, Republican voters chose the bigoted, self-serving narcissist over candidates who were presumably more competent, and definitely more honorable. And it wasn't just by a slim margin, either--Trump won by a vast majority in every state that held a primary, and in many states he won with over ninety percent of the vote. A candidate would have to be unopposed to get those kind of percentages in any other election. I agree, it's good to know that there are Republicans opposed to this--"man." But we cannot count on them to turn the tide for us. We have to get out there and make sure that everyone who can vote Democratic is able to do so. There may be those of us here who do not support the Democratic party, but right now they are the better alternative to Trump, his Congressional enablers, and those who voted them into office. My apologies for the electioneering, but those are my thoughts on the subject. Take them as you will.
  4. I see your Avengers anime and raise you Star Wars anime--
  5. What character is she playing in the second pic? The one with the black mini skirt and the red forearm guard?
  6. The Union Jack is still part of the Australian flag, isn't it? They still have The Queen on their coins and currency, don't they? I'd say that still makes them British.
  7. Not to mention Lisa Ann's. (Come on--don't tell me you don't know who she is.)
  8. Remember the Blonde Martians from Lucha Libre HERO? It seems they have established a colony on Earth, and they appear to be enjoying a peaceful existence--for the most part.
  9. Doggone it--this wasn't supposed to happen.
  10. What that rifle needs is a laser sight. Then the cat could deal with that red dot once and for all.
  11. If you're looking for Drains, try the "Sick Sticks" from the movie Minority Report. Jab the target with them and they projectile vomit everywhere. I would treat it as a 6D6 DEX Drain, since they're so busy vomiting they can't take any other action. (I'd be careful where you stand, though--if you happen to be in front of the target, he won't be the only one needing a costume change.)
  12. Armed Black Militia Marches At Stone Mountain In Georgia
  13. I don't know about anyone else, but that door puts me in mind of this--
  14. That looks like it would be messy as anything--but taste really good.
  15. Let America Be America Again BY LANGSTON HUGHES Let America be America again. Let it be the dream it used to be. Let it be the pioneer on the plain Seeking a home where he himself is free. (America never was America to me.) Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed— Let it be that great strong land of love Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme That any man be crushed by one above. (It never was America to me.) O, let my land be a land where Liberty Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath, But opportunity is real, and life is free, Equality is in the air we breathe. (There's never been equality for me, Nor freedom in this "homeland of the free.") Say, who are you that mumbles in the dark? And who are you that draws your veil across the stars? I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart, I am the Negro bearing slavery's scars. I am the red man driven from the land, I am the immigrant clutching the hope I seek— And finding only the same old stupid plan Of dog eat dog, of mighty crush the weak. I am the young man, full of strength and hope, Tangled in that ancient endless chain Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land! Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of satisfying need! Of work the men! Of take the pay! Of owning everything for one's own greed! I am the farmer, bondsman to the soil. I am the worker sold to the machine. I am the Negro, servant to you all. I am the people, humble, hungry, mean— Hungry yet today despite the dream. Beaten yet today—O, Pioneers! I am the man who never got ahead, The poorest worker bartered through the years. Yet I'm the one who dreamt our basic dream In the Old World while still a serf of kings, Who dreamt a dream so strong, so brave, so true, That even yet its mighty daring sings In every brick and stone, in every furrow turned That's made America the land it has become. O, I'm the man who sailed those early seas In search of what I meant to be my home— For I'm the one who left dark Ireland's shore, And Poland's plain, and England's grassy lea, And torn from Black Africa's strand I came To build a "homeland of the free." The free? Who said the free? Not me? Surely not me? The millions on relief today? The millions shot down when we strike? The millions who have nothing for our pay? For all the dreams we've dreamed And all the songs we've sung And all the hopes we've held And all the flags we've hung, The millions who have nothing for our pay— Except the dream that's almost dead today. O, let America be America again— The land that never has been yet— And yet must be—the land where every man is free. The land that's mine—the poor man's, Indian's, Negro's, ME— Who made America, Whose sweat and blood, whose faith and pain, Whose hand at the foundry, whose plow in the rain, Must bring back our mighty dream again. Sure, call me any ugly name you choose— The steel of freedom does not stain. From those who live like leeches on the people's lives, We must take back our land again, America! O, yes, I say it plain, America never was America to me, And yet I swear this oath— America will be! Out of the rack and ruin of our gangster death, The rape and rot of graft, and stealth, and lies, We, the people, must redeem The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers. The mountains and the endless plain— All, all the stretch of these great green states— And make America again!
