  1. Re: City of Heroes - Online Hero Game I didn't realize the HERO boards population still had such a presence in the game. My global is @Blowout I've got mainly a 50 nrg/nrg Blaster and 33 grav/kin Controller on Victory, and about two dozen alts scattered about. Surprisingly, I don't have a lot on Champion. I guess it's an excuse to make more alts!
  2. Re: A Thread for Random Musings I was brushing my teeth this morning when I suddenly realized I was humming a tune about a dive bar in a west-end town. I blame Steve Long.
  3. Re: A Thread for Random Musings My latest musing: Dan and Ben should impose a rotating random NGD ban. Nothing permanent, nor predictable. Someone rolls a handful of d6 and consults a big chart. "Everyone whose username starts with the letter N is banned from the NGD for 2d6 days!" nexus, nolgroth and Nyrath all go "WTF?!" Ben and Dan cackle to themselves with glee! At the end of that period, they roll again. "Everyone with more than 10,000 rep and less than 1,000 posts are banned from the NGD for 3d6 days or until Labor Day, whichever comes first!" ...and so on. It would give everyone a healthy sense of paranoia, while brightening up Dan and Ben's day once in a while. Plus, think of what fun they could have coming up with the list... "Any username which conatins three or more different vowels..." "Mightybec can post nothing disturbing for two weeks, else..." "Rage must insert a smiley in every post for one week, or else all NZ posters..." Etc. Now, I can see how some posters might get caught by several different possible random acts and be forced to spend a month or more out of the warm, moist embrace of the NGD, but, remember, absence makes the heart grow fonder. That poster will have to tough it out in the gaming parts of the forum, while we who remain pine for their return... ...and wonder who will be next to receive the stigma of the haphazard ban hammer!
  4. Re: Musings on Random Musings Urban Dead Low-tech, browser based, zombie apocalypse MMORPG. You can play a zombie or a survivor. There are revivication needles, which means that being zombified isn't permanent, just fairly inconvenient. It's fun. It could just use more zombies. Savinien and others have a cute little group that think they can keep a suburb safe from shamblers like me and Mightybec. They started a thread here on the NGD. We taunt them regularly. Edit: or just listen to Dr. A. I've got to learn to type faster.
  5. Re: Musings on Random Musings Funny thing. There was a brief surge in the search percentage for syringes and all my zombies are currently breathing. One has successfully finished off a zed. However, with the zed population at less than 1/3 of the city population I refuse to let them stay that way. It isn't a zombie apocalypse if there aren't any zombies. However, that's fodder for the UD thread. Are there any useful suggestions? Should I apprentice to Mightybec? Do I need to get a schtick?
  6. Re: Musings on Random Musings Kestrel made you go buh, too, huh?
  7. Re: Champions Jargon Player's Discretion: A generally undefined amount of negative STUN beyond -31. Used when the PC(s) pound the snot out of a given target when they had only a handful of stun left, putting them so far into the negative I don't have the motivation to do the math. "You hit Wrecking Ball so hard, he's at Player's Discretion."
  8. Re: Musings on Random Musings Congratulations to you. Good wishes to your son. I hope things continue to work for you and what now remains of your family.
  9. I don't feel any less wise... I had my wisdom teeth removed this morning. First time I've had surgery since I was a kid. Over the last few days the internal worry monologue has been getting a workout. Which sucks, because it never brings up any valid concerns, just paranoia. Every time it got to a dull roar, I fought it out of my head and asked for peace. They escort me into the operating room. I went with the general anesthetic, because being conscious and 'numb' for this didn't strike me a fun. They start by strapping me down to the table because they claim sleeping people tend to roll over, but it just starts to make me feel claustraphobic and anxious. Cue worry, back in force. Then they wheeled over the IV. God, I hate needles. Haven't given blood, even though I'd like to, because of that. Somehow, I didn't go into a panic attack, mostly thanks to the excellent staff there. The good news is that the procedure went without any known hitches (Yes, I've had a surprise hitch in the past...that's a pretty funny story actually), and the pain has already lessened to very tolerable levels. I really want a sandwich, tough. Quickie musing, unrelated,not so random: I only hope for there be a resolution soon. Please.
  10. Re: Longest Running Thread EVER I don't know about "practical" or "feasible". It would be "frustrating" for some, at the very least, and, for people like me, it would be "hilarious". Just imagine: Leftist posts horribly biased article. Righty tries to respond, but is modded by Leftist thread starter. So Righty starts his own thread which he is mod of to respond to Leftist's thread. The problem blooms, everyone is posting and responding to their own threads. Then Mightybec starts a thread...sanity is lost by all.
