  1. There are no mistakes in bronze casting, only happy accidents!
  2. It never came up in the homebrew fantasy world/game I have, but areas could be "aspected" or "flavored" magically such that certain categories of spells would be easier or harder to cast. A magic user trying to Create Water in a desert, or in the middle of a drought-stricken area, would have a harder time of it. Also I had an area which was once a breadbasket agricultural region but is now a wasteland thanks to past use of strategic level magic; no one is just going to walk in there and fix the problem by spamming noob spells.
  3. Ah, that fits the motion, and the relationship (or lack thereof) between the shape of the "orb" and the background, much better.
  4. The fact that it was only visible via the camera, and not to the naked eye, suggests that it was an infrared light. It almost looks like someone was shining an IR laser around the store, but the motion doesn't look like what I'd expect from human hands. Motion detectors usually work with IR light, so it would explain that as well.

    Near future

    That reminds me, I should try to run/play a game of Cyberpunk 2020 next year.
  6. That is indeed a cool gun. Thanks!
  7. APPLICATION FOR ENTRANCE TO THE CITY 1) Full name Kilanie of the White Sands 2) Mother's maiden name It is not the custom of my people to change names when married. My mother's name was and is Karanda of the White Sands 3) Any titles you have and where they were granted "Death Witch", an unimpressive hamlet of ignorant peasants in the east "Cast Iron Bitch", mercenary camp of Veltran's Blades 4) Place of birth North-eastern grazing territory of the White Sands clan 5) What is your reason for visiting our fair city? Commerce, sleeping in a real bed, eating something besides pub food 6) Education I am skilled in all things that an Elven nomad of the eastern deserts must know, and also in the arts of magic, particularly that relating to harm and healing of the body, and of the undead 7) List your previous three jobs Investigate and control outbreak of skeletons near the village of Turnip Flats Artifact retrieval for mage's guild of Grant's Port Protection and medical care for mixed group of pilgrims and peddlers 8 ) List of references (preferably at least one within the city) Sheriff of Turnip Flats Mage's guild in Grant's Port Brother Flandrian, Earth Mother's temple, Hammondburg none in city 9) Preferred religion I worship the Lady of Sorrow, as is proper for one of my clan 10) Any outstanding tax debts no 11) Any outstanding bounties and the circumstances of why a bounty has been placed upon you A mishap with healing magic led to a rival family in the White Sands clan placing a bounty of 100 silver pieces for my capture. I advise you not to attempt to collect. 12) Declare all dangerous companions and all dangerous items in your possession My companion is a half-demon with great strength and an enchanted sword. He is quite dangerous. I possess a variety of knives and daggers and also a rod of ebon and bone which amplifies certain magics. The most dangerous thing I possess is my knowledge. 13) Declare whether you are possessed no 14) Do you eat carrots? I fail to see how this is relevant. I have no special love for carrots but I will eat them when they are presented. 15) Emergency contact information My travelling companion, Jonah Kane. He appears to be a tall male human with black hair. You will know him by his red eyes, the bone spurs on his knuckles, and the fact that he never removes his hat. 16) Are you literate?

  8. If I could get broadband internet and pizza delivery, I'd like to live in a place like that.
  9. Do keep in mind that we have ships, swords, axes and guns in the real world, and the people responsible for fighting aboard their own ships always choose guns.
  10. But we had a black president, so that means racism is over, right?
  11. When you run the numbers, that doesn't sound so far-fetched. We can calculate the minimum energy needed for the Death Star to blow up an Earth-sized planet, and when we do, we discover that: 1) That shot contained more energy than you'd get by converting the entire mass of the Death Star directly to energy, and 2) Even at 99.99% efficiency, firing that shot would have generated enough waste heat to melt the Death Star (I want to say "vaporize" but I don't remember exactly). No wonder the engineers couldn't eliminate the thermal exhaust ports! Star Wars tech, at least in some areas, is PFM. We can't even start to describe how it might work in theory.
  12. Today is special because it's MCU Nick Fury's birthday. Happy Fury Day, everyone!
  13. So those earthlings threaten to put people into a bubbling vat of universal solvent, and then they wonder why no one responds?
