    Yawn. Anybody who comes at us with Popper's Paradox is nearly 75 years too late, I'm afraid. F for originality. For clarity, we do not tolerate intolerance and won't be persuaded to do so with linguistic tricks.

    I am too much the optimist, I am afraid. I'd hope you'd learn to leave your issues at the door. Our policies clearly state, "We do not subscribe to the argument that tolerance means that we need to tolerate intolerance or that inclusivity means that we need to include non-inclusiveness." Your argument here isn't new, and it isn't constructive. Good bye.

    Just re-read that story to check. First, it isn't, "they realize." It is Grey Mouser pontificating that the world is a bubble, with Fafhr basically telling him he's full of it and making things up. And it isn't that the stars are cities, and the waterspouts support planets. Mouser says that they are in a bubble - mostly ocean with the continents they know adrift on the inside of it. When...

    Wait a minute. They have magic enough to build a "magical Dyson sphere"... a magical structure that engulfs an entire star, but need to study magic? This idea hangs together much better if the Sphere itself is not magical at all. Tech aliens may need to study magic. Magic aliens, not so much. Also, if you haven't, go read Larry Niven's novel Ringworld. It doesn't bother with an entire...

    I had not read the book, but I wasn't "taken off guard" either. I'd heard some about it before play, and had what I thought was a good briefing from the GM. I had an idea of what I was doing, and wasn't put off by the idea. But in actual play, it just didn't do it for me.

    You could choose your own publishing strategy, of course. If it were me, I’d be more focused and specific. I’d go single one-shot skirmish encounters with a range of parameters. I’d look at some of FFGs Star Wars skirmish stuff.

Whatever they are printed on must be made in major quantities. Again - whatever you are using, you still need a lot of it to produce enough books for book burning like what is being discussed here.

    Only if your world also has the printing press, or magical equivalent, such that books are mass-produced*. Go try to write out an entire book longhand, legibly - at a quality that someone would actually want to buy. It is very time-intensive, and requires significant skill. If that's the way books are made, they remain expensive and rare, and mass burning an unlikely occurrence. ...

    Beware short definitions. They tend to miss meeting. There is a connotation to "status quo" beyond that - the status quo is the existing state of affairs and that has been the state for some significant time. The status quo is the current state that is relatively stable or static, and has not been changing much. You do not refer to the status quo of a highly dynamic situation in which the...

    Archtypically, for a game like D&D, we buy (or write) a setting book, and then we have to assemble (or purchase) an adventure which takes particular elements of the setting, and places them in a current situation the PCs have to deal with. When we say "the setting is the situation" is to say we haven't bothered writing a whole darned book of setting, and then plucked elements out of it to make...

    There's any number of works of sci-fi that include longer-life. However, it may not be the best source of plot points. "We all live longer now," isn't much of a story-driver in and of itself. And, in terms of visual media, it doesn't generate that much that is interesting to *see* on the screen. You get more mileage out of things that imply conflicts - like "the rich live long and better...

    The goals of play can be found with the following question - why are the *players* bothering to play. The mechanics are there to help the players attain the goals of play. For some, really interesting tactical wargaming may be a goal for play. For another, it may be emotional social roleplaying, and so on. Everyone has their reasons to sit at the table.

    Any ETA on when this will be fixed?...I don't want to be seen as blatantly abusing anything. Is there alternative method I can use to report posts in the mean time? No timetable as yet, AFAIK. Perhaps Morrus could make a glitch announcement and ask that reports be PMed to The Mod Squad?* https://www.memorabletv.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/the-mod-squad.jpg Or, for those unconcerned with anonymous reporting, posting it in Meta? * not pictured: any actual ENWorld Mods.

  • 04:58 AM - Maxperson mentioned Morrus in post Is RPGing a *literary* endeavour?
    That they are dancing is more about content than description. The thing that makes the scene more interesting is that the kobolds are dancing for some reason, not how the GM describes the dance It's not, or at least it's not entirely content. Dancing is a description of what the kobolds are doing up on the hill. Dancing is also content. This brings me back(again) to the point I made pages ago. Both qualitative description AND content are both necessary to make an interesting scene. One without the other is going to be dull. Also not sure why my posts keep including that quote I think it has something to do with multiquoting. Zardnaar was driving Morrus crazy with it in a thread recently. Maybe one of them could help you figure out how to stop quoting it.

    Same as Morrus , a close vote. Many fond memories of 2E, but 3E coming along and "modernizing" things we had houseruled for 2E anyway, makes it my favorite. At least at the beginning.

    https://www.renaud-bray.com/Livres_Produit.aspx?id=2843418&def=Dungeons+%26+Dragons+Essentials+Kit+(D%26D+Boxed+Set)%2cCOLLECTIF%2c9780786966837 Seems like we were both wrong on the Box Set. The site lists the dice and miscellany separate from this: The Essentials Kit. So maybe a new revised version of the starter set, but not Eberron specific it seems. Well, the name to me suggests maybe more of a neo-Expert Set: not an intro product, but a second product for folks who bought the Starter Set and want more. Something for folks with no FLGS, who buy their Magic & DnD stuff at Target or whatnot. Morrus more grist for the mill.
  • 05:12 PM - Parmandur mentioned Morrus in post New D&D Adventure Reveal On 17th May at 'The Descent'
    So looks like we were spot on with the Adventure book. "Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus" https://www.renaud-bray.com/Livres_Produit.aspx?id=2843417&def=Dungeons+%26+Dragons+Baldur%27s+Gate%3A+Descent+Into+Avernus+Hardcover+Book+(D%26D+Adventure)%2CCOLLECTIF%2C9780786966769 One correct. 3 more to go. Shout out to Parmandur for being on the Baldurs Gate connection before anyone! Boom! They just kept talking about Baldur's Gate, and getting way too detailed. Interestign that the name pattern matches "Waterdeep: Dragon Heist." Morrus might warrant a new story for your front page.

  • 08:03 PM - ParanoydStyle mentioned Morrus in post Missing Community Supporter and Silver Subscriber under name.
    Morrus I also subscribed as a Silver Supporter on March 25th according to PayPal. I am worried I am going insane because I can't seem to find the donate/subscription/support button/page/whatever anymore. I am positive I donated so it feels vaguely like the website is gaslighting me. I know that 19.99 is the amount I paid through PayPal but I can't find the page that explains how long of a subscription that purchases. (If ANYONE reading this can link me to the page, I'd be very appreciative. Right now I'm not sure if the donate/support button/link has been taken down, if I'm losing my mind, or if I just SUUUUUUPER critically failed my perception check.) Anyway, I, also would really, really appreciate getting my subscriber benefits. (I think) I forbore saying anything until now because I wanted to make sure my payment had PLENTY of time to process and because I didn't want to be a pain in the ass. But as it's been almost a month I need to speak up and I really do want my custom user titl...

  • 01:48 PM - TaranTheWanderer mentioned Morrus in post Group Iniative Order
    ...arget). So it's rules legal as long as the movement, Ready action, and trigger are all faithfully applied and resolved. Whether or not you find the outcome satisfying even though it's rules legal is another matter though. This. The dm can move them, one at time, and then have them wait to ready an action to attack. but Telvin: - If they had multiple attacks, they'd lose their extra attacks because readying takes your action and then it takes your 'reaction' to make the attack. You can't ready multiple attacks. Really, in this scenario(because of pack tactics), only the first bloodhawk (per PC) needs to ready until any of their other allies moved in. The others can just move in and attack as long as one of their allies was already adjacent. So, if they DM felt bloodhawks were smart enough to move and ready and only attacked once, then it's legal. With INT 3, I might have made the first bloodhawk attack with a normal attack...maybe. 3 is still pretty smart. Morrus Hmmmm. What *is* the rule for simultaneous initiative? Having them all move then all attack creates a massive tactical advantage over having them each move then attack. For me, they all go at once but still 'one at a time.' It probably evens out because now the PCs can all go simultaneously and use the same tactics. Although, it makes initiative a bit more important, I think. Having the PCs all go first and take out several of the bloodhawks before they acted might have changed the outcome. Telvin Who won initiative?

  • 04:43 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Morrus in post Critical Role Kickstarter Predition Game: Guess the Funding Outcome (GTFO)
    Thanks to the #CritterPush during last night's broadcast, the Kickstarter blew through their final stretch goal (of $8.8M) and then another $111K before it slowed back down. mortwatcher barely got to spend any time at all in the limelight, before Henry took the lead. Last night's event really blew up my spreadsheet too, which depends on a smooth U-shaped graph and wasn't designed to handle spikes like this. I'm now predicting Morrus to win...but let's be honest, nobody knows anymore. Critters are crazy. (For those not in the know, the #CritterPush event was coordinated in the Kickstarter comment section by a handful of pledges who thought it would be hilarious if they broke their final stretch goal live during their regular broadcast. So they coordinated tens of thousands of donors over social media, asking everyone to increase their pledges by just $5 to accomplish that task. It worked better than they had hoped, because like I said: Critters are crazy.)

  • 03:51 PM - gyor quoted Morrus in post Setting Idea: Arcane Dyson Sphere
    But how would you have night time inside a hollow sphere? In this setting people leave on planets and moons within the Dyson Sphere. It's not a Hollow Earth setting, a Dyson Sphere is the size of a solar system in this case with hundreds of inhabited planets and moons inside.
  • 09:43 AM - Paul Farquhar quoted Morrus in post Setting Idea: Arcane Dyson Sphere
    But how would you have night time inside a hollow sphere? There is a couple of ways to achieve that, and I don't remember if they discussed it in the video about the GoT credit sequence. The actual credit sequence itself suggests the Sun is occluded, but that could be artistic licence. They do allude to the hollow sphere nature of the world being connected to the long variable length winters. I only got about a third of the way through the first book, so I don't know if the novels address cosmology at all - I suspect they don't. Of course it might be that the Magisters believe they live inside a hollow sphere, but are mistaken. Apart from occlusion, the other method is solar variability. The Sun simply goes dim for half of every 24 hours. That would certainly explain the wonky seasons.
  • 09:31 AM - Paul Farquhar quoted Morrus in post Setting Idea: Arcane Dyson Sphere
    Do what, now? Game of Thrones? It's in the opening credit sequence (and confirmed in the video where they discussed making the sequence on one of the DVD extras).

    I thought the trailer looked great right up until the silly plane bit at the end. Did I see two Jumbo Jets crashing in slow motion with somebody sanding on top of one of them? Urgh. C-130s from the look and the fact that there's a quick shot of a pallet with a hummer dropping with someone holding to the underside of the pallet. It looks like one of the terminators did the whole arms into blades to cling to one of the planes. You mean post-T1. T1 introduced the T800. T2 introduce the T1000. I dropped words from my statement while typing it, It should have said ..."did right was give us cool-looking new models"

    Am I right in saying that you have to buy something on Amazon to rate it? And the street date was yesterday? I’m betting these people haven’t even read it yet! Hmm... I think you need to buy "something", but not the product in question. If you've actually bought the product from Amazon, a written review has the tag "Verified Purchase". (Ratings... not so much!) There's more than one review I've seen where they've criticised the shipping rather than the product. Cheers!

  • 03:08 PM - Parmandur quoted Morrus in post Amazon ratings of Ghosts of Saltmarsh
    That's not how I would interpret 5-stars. Reasonably, yes; however, ratings online are weighted to 5 stars.
  • 02:34 PM - Mistwell quoted Morrus in post Amazon ratings of Ghosts of Saltmarsh
    Well, presumably 1 star and 5 stars are equal extremes, unless you don't agree with them. It's a binary world these days - things are either the best thing ever or the worst thing ever. I rate your opinion 1 star. ONE STAR I SAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Worst. Post. EVAR!!!!! https://memegenerator.net/img/instances/70755053.jpg
  • 12:25 PM - Hussar quoted Morrus in post Amazon ratings of Ghosts of Saltmarsh
    That's not how I would interpret 5-stars. True, but, that is generally how ratings are done. That's why most reviews skew so high. Really, a 7/10 should be a pretty high rating, it's higher than the majority of other similar stuff out there. But, unfortunately, what it really means is that it's a barely adequate product because the baseline is 9 or 10 out of 10. Same goes for 5/5. It makes reviews pretty much pointless in most cases.
  • 10:44 AM - Paul Farquhar quoted Morrus in post Amazon ratings of Ghosts of Saltmarsh
    Well, presumably 1 star and 5 stars are equal extremes, unless you don't agree with them. It's a binary world these days - things are either the best thing ever or the worst thing ever. Not quite. One Star needs an explanation, since there must be something very badly wrong. Five Star simply means "it does exactly what it says on the tin" since the advertising clearly gives the best possible interpretation of the product. Also, given the tendency for the internet to be negative, it is much more likely that a One Star is political (by which I include any reason unrelated to the quality of the product itself, such as "I hate what Hasbro is doing with Eberron").
  • 07:01 AM - ccs quoted Morrus in post Game of Thrones s1e1
    Hmm. Question: why does Renly think he has a claim? Stannis does (in fact he’s the rightful heir), and Joffrey does via deception, but where does Renley’a claim come from? (I say all this knowing that it doesn’t matter because at the end is a dragon). He's the youngest of the 3 Baratheon brothers. Robert, Stannis & then Renly Baratheon. He's 4th in line after Joffery, Tommen, then Stannis. He does have a claim, just a lot weaker than the rest.

  • 09:16 PM - doctorbadwolf quoted Morrus in post "I'm BATMAN!" - Robert Pattison
    Michael Keaton is a great actor. He even nailed Ray Kroc in The Founder on Netflix. Have not watched a Batman movie since the Dark Knight. When you basically nail perfection anything else is gonna look bad. "Perfection"? lol oof. It's pretty good movie, with a batman that is...fine, I guess? It's probably the third best live action Batman movie, maybe 4th. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. Keaton and Ledger were both highly derided choices until they proved to be excellent. Actors act! And Pattinson is a morbid weirdo who comes across at a casual glance as a vapid pop star. Literally my only worry with him is the physical build, but if Keaton can pull it off, I'm sure he can too.
  • 05:46 PM - lowkey13 quoted Morrus in post What the Hell?
    Is it set in the 70s or in the future? My recollection (remember- I read this a LONG time ago, when I was much younger) is that the protagonist died in the present time, but it was set some time in the future (due to waiting, like you tend to do in the afterlife)- that said, the characters were almost all fictional or people from history; I can't recall anyone that was alive at the time I read it that was said to have died. EDIT- OH! So, I looked it up on Wikipedia; apparently, there was a "sequel" in 2010, and that referred to Sagan. I know nothing about that.
  • 12:04 PM - Joker quoted Morrus in post GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8--Final Run-- Part 6---THE END
    So did Bran basically plan all this from the start? I think he's like a super computer and sees a lot of different possible paths at once. He then tries to steer people in the right direction for the best outcome, taking into account how people's actions might change if he tells them anything. But that's just how I choose to see it. The makers of the show have been uncomfortable with the magic elements from the get go. So we don't really know how Bran's powers work.
