    Kramodlog wow, those are remarkably similar. Like, what are the odds that was coincidental? Just went to dig a bit and found this: http://io9.gizmodo.com/amazon-pulls-castalia-house-book-for-ripping-off-john-s-1793533638 A choice excerpt: There’s a reason Beale made a cover that looks exactly like Scalzi’s, and it’s not to ride his coattails. This is all part of Beale’s longstanding feud (or obsession) with Scalzi, who hasn’t shied away from criticizing him in the past. Beale has long considered himself Scalzi’s literary rival, even though they’re on completely different levels of success. Beale has said and done questionable and offensive things to perpetuate that rivalry, including accusing Scalzi of rape because of a satirical article he wrote in 2012.

  • 02:33 PM - Sadras mentioned Kramodlog in post Christian Persecution vs Persecuted Christians
    Yes, that would be why I very specifically stated, "...there must at the very least be a full admission of events." Right, I missed that line. "Islamic history", or "history"? I would say the latter. After all, do we refer to the systemic subjugation of Jews in Europe as "Christian History", or just "history"? This isn't hair splitting but rather pointing out a specific inequity in phrasing, that is aimed at supporting a premise. Islamic. I'm referring to situations where Islam played (in some still plays) a major role in the policies utilised and actions of the government or people at the time against Non-Muslims. I know they have their own in-fighting but I was not addressing that part of the discussion with regards to Islamophobia with @goldomark.

    @goldomark sadly I had a full reply, but it got lost in the submission. I will answer back when I have time available. But I will address one of your's and @Ryujin's comments: As @Ryujin said, there are lots of Imams and Muslims who spoke on such matters. But as you said to him, there aren't enough for you. There will never be enough for you. Very dramatic. You know the people who are lumping Muslims together don't listen to NPR ;) The Muslims of Turkey need to acknowledge the Armenian Persecution and make reparations. The Muslims of Egypt need to acknowledge the injustices against the Copts and make reparations. The Muslims of Pakistan and Bangladesh need to acknowledge their atrocities against the Hindu and Shieks and make reparations...list goes on, including the 200 or so girls that were kidnapped in Nigeria. At least the memes with the ridiculous Michelle Obama were funny. This is very much similar to how South Africa acknowledged the atrocities under the Apartheid Regime, establi...

    goldomark, 8 years is incredibly long for a criminal case here. Almost unheard of. I could see a civil case dragging on that long maybe. Here a judge decides bond, and if you make it you're out until trial date. A prosecutor can review the charges and drop them before court if they don't feel it's a good case. Generally officers have immunity if they make a bad arrest, as long as they acted in good faith. I take you in for DUI because you were weaving and had balance issues. I don't smell alcohol but believe you are on prescription meds. You bring a doctor's statement to the prosecutor or to court and show that you have a medical condition that mimics intoxication. Charges are dropped, but the officer isn't charged because the arrest met a reasonableness standard. However, if I stop you and you exhibit no indicators of impaired driving and I arrest you anyway, then I could be charged with false arrest. More likely you would go for a civil payout and try to get the city's insurance t...

    Y'know, it's kinda funny. I work in Japan, teaching English and have done so for a long time. I work at the local Nissan factory here in Kyushu, from time to time. Now, Nissan is owned, at least a large part of it is, by Renault, a French company. The CEO of Nissan is French. Yet, all my students study English. Why would that be? You'd think in a French company, where the local workers have never studied French, they'd be pushing French language studies. Could it be because English is the Lingua Franca of business and the rest of the world is spending billions of dollars on English language education? When a French, German and Japanese businessman sit down together, you can pretty much guarantee that they are speaking English. goldomark made a point that speaking English at work is discriminatory. No, it isn't. Everyone has an equal opportunity to learn English and do business. It would be discriminatory if other languages were accepted, but not French. But, that's not the is...

    Look, goldomark, what I've never understood about the separatist movement is this: What do you expect to gain from a separate Quebec? How do you figure that a separate Quebec will be better off than one within confederation? How will a cash strapped newly-independent Quebec stop the Americans from turning you into a giant theme park?

  • 03:22 AM - Hussar mentioned Kramodlog in post The Confederate Flag
    As I said before, reconciliation not reparation. goldomark's points would carry a lot more water if you didn't have New Brunswick, right next to Quebec, which is a fully integrated, bilingual province with French and English given equal protections and rights. No one complains about New Brunswick being French. And as far as repression or racism goes, Quebec has pretty much everything it ever asked for. It's own police force, it's own legal system (distinct from the rest of Canada), every one of their laws is protected by the Constitution (mostly because a very short time after the Constitution was written in the early 1980's, Quebec invoked the Notwithstanding Clause and made every Quebec law exempt from the Canadian Constitution), there is no barrier to French Canadians getting jobs or education anywhere in Canada, and all of this is paid for in part by the rest of Canada. And, if you want to talk about people making fun of Quebec, umm, what province is exempt from that? Never hea...

    Just to add a point about the hostility between have and have not provinces. goldomark, there's another reason you don't see quite as open hostility towards, say, Eastern Canada or Manitoba as you do with Quebec. Those places aren't actively trying to break up the country every twenty years and then spending the next twenty years stirring the pot so we can spend another couple of years and hundreds of millions of dollars on yet another failed attempt to leave the country. Nor have those parts of Canada seen terrorists laying pipe bombs and murdering politicians. So, there is a bit of history there that does change how Quebec gets viewed. There is some residual hostility from that.
  • 01:20 AM - Hussar mentioned Kramodlog in post The Confederate Flag
    Yeah, sorry, that took a left turn. Although the idea of racism and ethnic conflict is still there. Rolling this back around. What is needed isn't reparations necessarily but reconciliation. How do the groups figure out how to come together and work past what happened in the past? And make sure that it isn't continuing in the present. It's August, so, here in Japan, we're obviously talking a lot about the war and the bombs. But, it's a very different conversation. Not a pleasant one to be sure, but not really... hostile. For example, Truman's grandson is in Japan. One thing he gets asked about frequently is if he should apologise for what his grandfather did. His answer was pretty clear; what would be the point of apology? Would it resolve anything? Would it help? Better to spread information about the events, so that both sides can try to learn from the experience and move on. And, from the reaction from the Japanese people, that seems to be the right answer. It's not about...

  • 07:37 PM - doctorhook mentioned Kramodlog in post Character Narratives Preview from PRIMEVAL THULE
    For Montreal, yeah that sounds about right.lol Yeah, goldomark's posts made a lot more sense to me once I looked at his/her location. The extra abilities are flavorful, but I think 5E characters are powerful enough as is. The per encounter abilities are definitely 5E, more 4E really.I think it's just the language; "cannot use this ability again until you take a short or long rest" is 5E's "once per encounter". I don't know that I like the mixing of backgrounds and combat abilities--it's way too open to abuse.
  • 06:08 PM - doctorhook mentioned Kramodlog in post Character Narratives Preview from PRIMEVAL THULE
    goldomark @Desalus steeldragons "Thule" sounds weird...but not any weirder than "Krynn" or "Oerth" or "Eberron" to me (and I love Eberron). It's just a strange set of sounds for my English tongue, and I'm not used to it yet. Looks like a cool setting though; I'll kick that starter.

  • 04:33 PM - Hussar mentioned Kramodlog in post So, 5e OGL
    See, I'm not sure if that's fair goldomark. I think that perception is a bit... biased. I look at EN World's Reviews of WOTC's adventures, and I get 19 products. Only three of those 19 are ranked at around 50% approval. Seven are ranked at over 80%. Just about half. Not a bad bunch of reviews really. But, for some reason, people insist that WOTC has such a bad reputation for adventures. I'm not really sure that that's warranted to be honest. It's more that WOTC just, for a long time, was never really interested in producing adventures. But, several seasons of organised play later, I'm thinking they've got their game together.

  • 12:38 PM - Mercurius mentioned Kramodlog in post [UPDATED] Dragon+: An Official D&D iOS App
    While I'm glad this is out, goldomark has a point. From a cursory scan through the product it reminds me a bit of the "WotC Presents" and the "Dungeon Survival Guide" that came out betwen 3.5 and 4E - more of a product about products than an actual product of content. But here's the other thing: maybe this is fine. D&D really needs a "town crier," a kind of central location for the community to get news and little tid-bits to encourage interest. Maybe Dragon+ can be that. I personally am not thrilled about what I've seen so far - it does seem like more of an advertisement and doesn't have the "warm and fuzzy" feeling that the print mag had, but it is something. But here's the best thing of all: That it is, and that we didn't know about it until it was available to us. That implies that there are more surprises in store, or at least their could be. And that feeling of "could be" is a spark of magic all on its own.

    Honest people do not disagree. What? That might be true... if we were ants. If we were all physically and psychologically the same, if we had the same upbringings, and life experiences knowledge and understaning. But real people differ from each other - have different wants, needs, desires and sensibilities and perspectives. So, we disagree on stuff. Or, perhaps to use your formulations: Honest people accept that some things are subjective, not objective. I'm talking about Star Wars fans. Not gerne fans. Star Wars fans are the kind of people who make an actress delete her posts cause of abuse. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-44379473 You know. People who won't say/see something is bad even when it is. Um, I don't understand the mental gymnastics there. My understanding is that you claim the fans have low standards, and will accept anything fed to them. But, this is an example* of them absolutely hating something fed to them, and reacting violently to it. The...

    Not an opinion. Just facts. Vader wasn't originally Luke's dad. There were no plans for a trilogy or universe. well this interview says different POLLOCK: In 1971, I became George’s attorney. He was just doing THX 1138 with Francis Coppola at Warner Bros, which was an extension of the short he did at USC. The first deal we did was a two-picture deal at United Artists Corporation for George to write a script called American Graffiti, and for an untitled science fiction movie, in nine parts. Swear to God. This was what was in the contract. I know this because when Skywalker Ranch was built, George had a time capsule buried. One of the things I put in there was that contract, along with the articles of incorporation of Lucasfilm. https://deadline.com/2015/12/star-wars-franchise-george-lucas-historic-rights-deal-tom-pollock-1201669419/ DEADLINE: Back when that first deal was forming, and George ended up with $150,000 for the first film, did you think they would say yes to giving George ...

  • 05:42 PM - Mallus quoted Kramodlog in post Solo: Star Wars A Flop?
    Let's not generalize. There is teh problem of low standards. The juxtaposition of these two sentences is hilarious. Was that intentional? Also, the problem isn't just that people have low standards It's that there's often broad disagreement over what the standards are. Obvious point is obvious (obvs). But some people are just attracted to what is familiar. This is a really odd point to make in a conversation presumably with genre fans. By definition, fans of a given genre want familiar elements - because that's what genres are. Collections of plots, themes, stock characters, and common elements shared between works that get that place them in the same general category. Which makes discussion the unfamiliar and the innovative vis a vis genre media something that requires a bit of nuance (and less 'implied sheeple' argumentation). Some will just see anything with the Star Wars logo on it. Some have short term memory. Others just were never exposed to quality. But most are just progr...
  • 04:22 PM - Umbran quoted Kramodlog in post Solo: Star Wars A Flop?
    Of course. People have low standards. Just look at the money the Transformers films made. Or how people buy all sort of crap and say they like it. De gustibus non est disputandum. Let's not generalize. There is teh problem of low standards. Who gets to define standards as low or high? See below before you answer this. Meh. Trying to be cool is not cool. When "be cool" is "be decent to your fellow human beings", I disagree with your assertion. People need help to come out of the cave. Have you considered the possibility that *you* are the one in the cave? After all, yours is the place of dankness and disapproval, were few things are worthy of enjoyment. That's pretty cave-like.
  • 01:51 AM - trappedslider quoted Kramodlog in post Solo: Star Wars A Flop?
    The first one. It came out at the right time, in the right place, with the right themes and thus why it was so successful. It filled some void or niche or need or whatever in USian -and Western to lesser extant- culture. It is why some lines or scenes are so famous and pervacive. Why you do not need to have seen the movie to know them. Why it is still of cultural importance today. And why Disney keeps trying to milk it for cash, but just puss is coming out right now. But originally it was just one movie. No trilogy, no universe. Vader wasn't Luke's dad or anything. Just one story with an end. so basically everything after A New Hope was unneeded and unnecessary in your opinion. wow, that's an opinion I've never encountered before.....

    For the general audience, like you and me? Tell an entertaining story. It didn't. No Star Wars film has pulled that off since the original trilogy. It can't. The material from the original trilogy is too thin and already has been spread over to much toast. So, for all those people who say they found the film entertaining... they were wrong? They weren't entertained, but don't realize it? 'Cause you are speaking about "you and me" but seem to be applying taste that's all *you*. That's not really cool. Speak for yourself all you like, but allowing for others to like different things than you would be better. I mean, if we all liked the same things, that'd be boring. And just think of the haggis shortage. Wow. I obviously touched a nerve. It is just a bunch of films. Not good ones, but still just films. No need to get emotional about it. Not emotional about it at all. They are literally rhetorical questions - questions whose unstated answers make the rhetorical point. And, si...

    Wow. I obviously touched a nerve. It is just a bunch of films. Not good ones, but still just films. No need to get emotional about it. It's a valid question since you deemed that Rogue one and Solo's backstory were unnecessary as films, what SW stories are necessary as films in your opinion?

    And unnecessary. Usually, a hammer is not necessary for making supper. However, a hammer is instrumental in building a dog house. So, when you say the movie is unnecessary, there is an implied purpose. What is that purpose, in this case? What do they not need this to accomplish? And, as a follow-up question, what stories are necessary? What *NEEDS* to be told? Or are all stories fundamentally unnecessary?

  • 08:13 PM - MarkB quoted Kramodlog in post Solo: Star Wars A Flop?
    Beyond the original trilogy, there isn't a good Star Wars film. Star Wars is too tied with Jedis, the Force and the Skywalkers. It doesn't have the dept to generate other interesting stories to tell on screen. The second trilogy showed us that and the four new films confirmed it. The Force Awakens is a good demontration that nothing new can be added to the cinematic universe. This is why there is already Star Wars fatigue among the general audience and Solo isn't on par with box office-wise when compared to the other films. Continuing to produce Star Wars material should be limited to novels who are for a very targetted audience. Speaking of lack of dept, the up coming Avatar films are going to be hilariously hollow. Rogue One had barely a Sith cameo, and it was excellent. It certainly wouldn't have failed as a story if they'd dropped Vader entirely.
  • 06:30 PM - Demetrios1453 quoted Kramodlog in post Second Dungeons & Dragons Product for Fall 2018: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage
    I wonder if you need to buy the map pack for Undermountain to use the Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Wizard adventure. http://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/waterdeep-dungeon-mad-mage-map-pack That would mean that adventure would cost 75$. 125$ if you buy Dragon Heist. They did say the maps would be in the book, presumably shrunk down to page size. This, I imagine, would be a pack of poster-sized maps that would be rather difficult to ship with a book. So you would presumably be able to play the campaign without these maps, although having the poster maps would certainly be cooler and more convenient...

    Yeah. Paizo's CEO, Lisa Stevens, knew before ICv2 released the info that PF had out sold D&D as early as 2009 if I remember correctly. She had a blog post about it that I'm way to lazy to search cause it won't mean anything anyway. And I was a bit jesting in my original post. StarDungeons and StarDragons? Yup and the icv2 info showed that too. And I for one am hoping for another “star” game to come out.

    I just wonder if you combined the sells of PF and SF they out sell StarDungeons and StarDragons or not. Well, if you did not depend on just Icv2 lists and Amazon ratings and could actually get sales figures for WotC D&D vs Paizo Pathfinder en Starfinder... Paizo does a TON of direct sales, WotC does very, very little. ICv2 only does FLGS and doesn't ask for hard numbers, just gut feeling... And seeing how many fanboys are actually running FLGS, it's such an undependable chart!
