Title: Awesome stuff you have to share, V4
Post by: RobbyPants on November 20, 2015, 03:32:48 PM
So, apparently my fortune cookie at lunch had a good idea of what my plans are for this weekend:

I just did the most awesome thing I've ever done in a D&D game... and I'm probably going to die for it. :D

I'm playing a batman wizard (literally... he's a vigilante (the role, not the shitty PrC) wizard, with a ton of alchemical gadgets and "trick" spells, magic items, etc). He's currently storming the lair of a deepspawn with a bunch of NPC guards (one of which is another wizard). As they opened a door the NPC wizard had just dispelled a trap on, the dungeon area we're in began flooding with water, and mouthed tentacles began to attack the other wizard...

By the way, my guy is almost completely out of spells... but he does happen to have a Benign Transposition prepped (which he JUST recovered using a Pearl of Power), is wearing an Auran Mask, and he was standing near the stairs leading up...

So instead of just fleeing to save his own ass and sacrificing the NPCs, I yelled that the other wizard better have something good prepped to save our asses, and then swapped places with him (Benign Transposition), immediately teleported 10' straight up (Anklet of Translocation) and stood upside down on the ceiling (Slippers of Spiderclimbing...). Now I'm going to hope I survive the full attack of a deepspawn while an NPC saves my ass... but damn did I look cool doing it!  :lmao

Edit: I survived... with 5 hit points to spare! I managed to escape the encounter, also, by going totally batman and breaking a bottle of liquid smoke then dissappearing into it.

We lost the battle, but I managed to gather a lot of info on the enemies that will hopefully come in handy the next time we face them.

Easily one of the most depressing and terrifying things I've ever seen/heard in a D&D game occurred in this battle: "The deepspawn casts Heal on itself, curing all of its damage"...  :o (My character's level is in the high single digits, so he was way out of his league with this craziness...)

Absolutely hilarious. Two completely opposite points of view clash, and the result couldn't be more entertaining and/or educating.

I realised earlier today that quite a lot of the text in the books in the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime is actually copied from 3rd ed D&D sourcebooks...

It probably wasn't noticeable to the japanese people watching it but you can clearly see references to d20s and prestige classes in some of them if you can read English and bother to pay attention.

One of the latest songs I've been picking apart.  I stand a chance to be jamming with Zack Stevens from TSO/Savatage sometime in attendance next summer.  The guitarist, Criss Oliva, is by far my biggest influence, and his live stuff, especially for this song, is nothing short of unreal.  In one of the live recordings saved of this song, he goes into a 3 string sweep-tap (one of the hardest techniques on the guitar, period), and frequently integrates tapping with sweep arpeggios, all without sounding obnoxious like Yngwie Malmsteen about it.

It's based on a pretty cool series of scifi books of the same name - I've read the books, but haven't had the chance to watch the show yet (it's waiting for me). If you get the chance, I'd recommend the books as well.

Yeah, definitely not a song I would have thought they'd do, but they did it and they did it well in my opinion.

Yesterday I dreamed that I was at the airport when I ran into Neil Patrick Harris. And he turned out to be a fan of One Punch Man.

We proceeded to dispute in a game I invented called the "Fist Press". Basically, you push your closed fist against someone else's, and the winner is the one that manages to push back the opponent.

Then his hair fell off, he turned into Saitama, the opening song started to play, and I pushed him back.

Today was my third session of the Dragonlance Chronicles, after the heroes obtained the discs of Mishakal from Xak Tsaroth and returned to a ruined Solace.  During the inn fight, Otik Sandath the lovable barkeep is taken hostage and Toede (evil empire bad guy goblin) tries to get the group to disarm and be arrested in exchange for his life.

Otik Sandath: "Tika my dear, I swear I will do everything in my power to-"

Tika Waylan: "Don't talk, just go!"

When Allegra the paladin's the last party member to throw down her arms, Otik's released and he runs far away.

Xeno: "Toade, there's something you forgot."

Toede: "And that is?" he asks, chortling.

Xeno: "I'm a fucking mage. LIGHTNING BOLT MOTHERFUCKERS."

Toede: "And? You don't have a spellbook OH SHIT!"

My cousin, a 2nd Duan Sanda fighter who's training me in his ways complimented my Sanda Sidekick, said it's almost as good as his is. Made me so happy i spent the entire afternoon practicing my other kicks and punches.

Seems like i might actually become a pretty good Sanda fighter myself. Training everyday.

I'm hoping to become good enough to give it a shot at a competition next year, so, here's hoping i actually achieve that! I might have to work on handling getting punched and kicked though.

EDIT: I might have to add i'm almost belly-fat free, which is something that has been nagging me for a pretty good while. If current trends continue i might get defined abs by the end of the year!

Title: Re: Awesome stuff you have to share, V4
Post by: brujon on April 15, 2016, 01:32:07 PM
2nd duan is his rank, similar to how Dan is used to denote the rank of the fighter in Japanese martial arts. Similar to how it is in Japanese martial arts, there are grades before you graduate, and when you finish graduation, you start acquiring the technical ranks. Look up the "Chinese Wushu Duanwei system" to more or less understand how it works. It's a bit complicated but it basically means he's two levels above what a "black belt" (there are no belts in Sanda, but stars) would be. Which means he's allowed to train up to a "black belt" equivalent in Sanda(someone who's mastered all the basics), but can't award the technical Duan ranks (needs to be a 3rd Duan or higher to award the 1st Duan, 4th duan to award the 2nd duan, and 5th duan to award up to the 5th Duan).

The most amazing thing i saw in Sanda however, is that to acquire the Duan ranks you do not need only to master the technical aspects of Wushu Sanda, but also the historical and philosophical aspects. You actually need to write a Thesis on the importance of Sanda in order to move up to the higher ranks, lol.

For comparison sake, most professional Sanda fighters hover around the 2nd to 3rd Duan ranks, some are 4th. There have been many Sanda world champions that are 2nd or 3rd Duan. My cousin managed to qualify for the Brazilian championship but didn't get to the top 3, won the regionals 2 times.

I've been sitting on this one a while and just thought to share.

Here's a collection of astrological symbols for every sufficiently large body in the solar system, as well as one for every single constellation. (http://www.suberic.net/~dmm/astro/)

More interestingly, it has a defunct link to an essay (http://web.archive.org/web/20090325201315/http://www.valentino-salvato.com/Astrology/articles/extraterrestrial_astrology.htm) on how to draw up a natal chart for people born on different planets (because some people take this stuff very seriously and want to future-proof).

I kinda want to make a system where character creation involves drawing up your character's natal chart and going from there. Or just figure out a way to hack together an appropriate natal chart generating table for Eberron.

(Go on. Guess how I found that site.)

I just saw Captain America: Civil War, then followed it up with an amateur production of The Gondoliers with my cousin as Luiz. Truly, this was an awesome day for entertainment, although the second part was a bit awkward because I was still geeking out about Civil War.

I just saw the Warcraft movie with my dad (we played Warcraft games from the original Orcs and Humans through to World of Warcraft's second expansion together) and my mom (who grudgingly put up with us playing Warcraft together and never shutting up about it). It was very enjoyable, the graphics were amazing, and the characters made you care about them. All three of us had a very good time. Certainly not an A-list movie, but a very good B or B+. Here's hoping Blizzard decides it's profitable enough to make a sequel (preferably with a little more attention paid to the script to bring it up to an A).

Apparently Warcraft is doing horribly in the US but amazingly in China.  I read something about how the Chinese market is starting to become more important than the US one.

(Also I think that the special effects in the movie look horrible so I'll be passing until someone buys it and puts it on their tv while I'm around.)

Margot Robbie is there for hotness

her character should have been played by an actual comic actress
who could deliver the lines more cartoonishly yet with legitimate humor.

They were marketing a different film.  It's tradition now that directors no longer make trailers, the marketing department does, and the film they were selling wasn't the one the director was making (it was pretty dark).  So the studio made a new cut filmed with pop songs every minute behind his back, and when he found out they tested both.  They decided to meet somewhere in the middle, which is why most of Jokers stuff got axed, and why the plot seems a little off.

The Joker is seriously secondary to the development of the Suicide Squad team. I haven't seen the movie yet, but BvS was just as cringey as I expected it to be (in no small part because of Batfleck).

I maintain that they should just hand development of the movies to the team that does the DC animations. Seriously, watch Assault on Arkham, or Justice League: War, Flashpoint, hell, The Killing Joke even given the completely unnecessary 30 minutes with Babs. They have their shit together at least.

That's where the artist stopped it.  And he said he's not going to finish it, because this was just a warm-up fanart that will never get published.

Holy shit that is freakin gold.

While I was reading it, my mind was racing on how to go about setting a D&D game in a setting like this it's just so fantastic and the world was really fleshed out and a lot of things were explained so well and that was a thing of real beauty that. I don't think I've come across a webcomic that got me so excited!

Literally bought a physical copy of Book 1 right after getting to the first chapter this person is too much.

Post by: Amechra on September 30, 2016, 12:03:06 AM
Oh, we're sharing web comics?

Here are some good ones that are still updating:

Harpy Gee (http://www.harpygee.com/comic/cover), Blade Under Mask (http://white-mantis.deviantart.com/art/Blade-Under-Mask-Volume-One-Cover-581557902?q=White-Mantis%2F57306230&qo=51), and the The Property of Hate (http://www.thepropertyofhate.com/TPoH/The%20Hook/1), and Parhelion (http://parhelioncomic.tumblr.com/tagged/page/chrono). Broodhallow (http://broodhollow.chainsawsuit.com/page/2012/10/06/book-1-curious-little-thing/) is a bit stop-and-start, but it's still continuing.

And here are a few that finished... a while ago:

Digger (http://diggercomic.com/blog/2007/02/01/wombat1-gnorf/), Hotblood (http://hotbloodcomic.com/page/274), Rice Boy (http://rice-boy.com/vattu/index.php?c=001), and Water Phoenix King (http://www.waterphoenixking.com/).

Of those, I'll warn you ahead of time that Water Phoenix King's art is... passable. It's got a very good story, though. Also, Parhelion and Hotblood contain homosexuality if that's a "thing" that you care about.

=---=

Those are all adventure-y ones. I've got a list of... more out there stuff, too:

Fleep (http://www.aaronsw.com/2002/fleep/): A man wakes up in a phone booth contained in concrete, with no memory of how he got there.
Tragedy Series (http://tragedyseries.tumblr.com/page/75): Secret lobster claws.
Anders Loves Maria (http://web.archive.org/web/20110727231436/http://anderslovesmaria.reneengstrom.com/2006/09/11/2006-09-11/): She's reposting this with better art at anderslovesmaria.com, but... well... it gets really really depressing. Also, it's slice of life/drama in the real world.
1/0 (http://oneoverzero.keenspace.com/d/20000827.html): It is precisely 1000 strips long, considers the 4th wall to be entirely non-existent, and consists of a long conversation between the writer and the characters about... stuff. It's perhaps one of the most bizarre things I've read that hasn't slipped into raw dada.

This is Armageddon. A web-novel. A very good one. Planned trilogy, but only two books have been written.

The premise is, the trumpets have been sounded, humanity's time is up. Heaven is closed for business, and has been for the last thousand years. Yahweh has given the OK for Satan to invade Earth, and his Heralds are here to bring the message.

All those who wish to lay down and die, can, and all the others will be taken care of with extreme prejudice, by demon claw.

However, mankind is not just about to lay down and accept this level of betrayal.

War is declared, on both Hell and Heaven, and humanity has learned QUITE A FEW tricks by the 21st century...

Demons have no idea what's in store for them.

I used to read a ton of... pretty crappy webcomics. A ton.

Though there are those that stand out, like Bob and George (http://bobandgeorge.com/archives/000401) (the first sprite webcomic, made that way because the author couldn't draw shit) and Kid Radd (https://www.bgreco.net/kidradd/comic1.htm#title) (it's... really damn impressive). Also Scary-Go-Round (http://www.scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20020604) is pretty great.

Also Nan Quest (http://mozai.com/quests/NanQuest/) and Ruby Quest (http://mozai.com/quests/RubyQuest/) are gorgeous works of horror.

...

I think if you kept asking me on different occasions, I'd keep listing different stuff.

=---=

Rice Boy was the original comic - however, the other ones should be in "chronological order".

Oh god.  You know, the D&D wiki.org is a big place.  Sometimes I run across an old article no one has ever really read before.  Sometimes, they're steaming piles of crap.

This one was... legendary bad.  We immediately downrated it into oblivion, but holy shit is this a bad one: Mana Alchemist (https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/Mana_Alchemist_(3.5e_Class))

You can read the ratings on the Discussion tab if you want to skip parsing it yourself.  God damnit SisterAcacia, this is the worst.  Placing it here cause I can't stop laughing/crying.

May or may not be awesome, but I prolly have a job at a local rural hospital as a security guard.  I am in no way qualified for this position, but no one in the company wants to touch it (it's out in the boonies with comparatively low pay) and they havent had anyone apply for it in months.  So I guess I have an in, if I can keep it.

This game looks amazing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ns4ExY4JcSo --> Gameplay


25 days to go, already met its original goal, going on to stretch goals. Seriously, this game looks to be something to wait for, for visual style alone (although the gameplay looks awesome). Lots of sneakin around, constant fear in the atmosphere, but unique visuals. Looks to be a Amnesia with less focus on puzzles and more focus on environmental threats.

Someone commented that the entire contents of that book should be the word "Don't".

Pretty cool!

You have a lot more chest hair than i'd pictured in my minds eye lol :lmao

Turns out i also made local news this year, so it makes two of us: http://www.correiobraziliense.com.br/app/noticia/cidades/2017/01/03/interna_cidadesdf,563343/academias-apostam-em-descontos-e-aulas-criativas-para-atrair-novos-alu.shtml

But for a totally RPG-unrelated reason.

Since january last year my cousin and i have been training on a regular basis, and we've started this project to take Wushu Sanda to the streets of Brasília.

We've also got a thing going on in a gym right now, and i finally got off of my ass and started strength training. Also doing Yoga and working on an MBA.

--------------------
ON ANOTHER NOTE...


Not having a girlfriend for the past two months helped immensely, also. Feel like i finally have time to do EVERYTHING (not really)... But still, i can read, study, and work on improving myself without having to really worry about pleasing anyone.

I also got back to RPG, FINALLY! I have a group going on sunday and we're playing Mage: Ascension. Pretty cool to finally go back to playing RPG's after such a long time without  doing something that i enjoy so much.

I've been living on about 6 hours of sleep a day for the past two weeks, and i feel totally fine about it.

AND, i've finally switched over from normal cigarettes to e-cigs, and my lungs are thanking me A LOT for it. Today i made a bet with a friend of mine on the treadmill, to see who could run the longest in 10 minutes. I made 2.5km, he did 2.3. So i won a beer next time we hang out.

It's REALLY nothing super impressive, and we both can do much better, but, a year back, i couldn't DREAM of doing a time like that. Or even manage such a pace for 10 minutes straight without coughing a piece of my lung out. After the 10 minutes, i felt i could have gone on running for maybe another 10 minutes.

In freedom units, that's a pace for a 6:24 mile. Which is pretty decent, but not really stellar. I still need to work on my conditioning a lot, and do more endurance & strength training.

I plan on MAYBE trying to try competing in Sand next year, but it all depends if i can reach my goals by december this year, which are threefold:

-> Reaching 62kg @ 9% BF, currently at 58kg @ 12,3% BF
-> Managing clean throws, during sparring, on my sparring partner who's at 104kg @ 18% BF.
-> Getting to a point where i can maintain normal speed/power through at least five 2 minutes sparring rounds (currently, i start to lose performance by middle round two, and by the end of round three i'm trash).

If by december this year i fail at any of these three goals, i won't be competing next year, but instead, will aim to compete in 2019.

I would say that immunity to drunkness is a super power.

Also want more Capitão Brohak background.

He has a fairly simple background. His barbarian nation of Nasgard lost a war to a neighboring kingdom some 50 years ago, during which many of their clans were exterminated. Some survived in a reduced capacity, which is the case of Brohak's clan, the Skaldi. They were singers and keepers of lore through oral tradition, scholars and fighters. Unlike most Nasgardians, they were also exceptional sailors, which led Brohak to a life of equal shares commerce and piracy. One thing few are aware of is that Brohak's commercial activities were meant to improve on the lives of his fellow clansmen, many of whom lost their homes and livelihood during or after the war. Brohak was, by comparison to his clansmen, a much more capable diplomat and much kinder man than most people deserve to meet, while also retaining some measure of refinement.

Sadly, he died during the occupation of Tartaria by the Beastmen, trying to secure an escape route for his crew.

There's nothing quite like calling journalists out on their lies to their faces (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPAo_J8gotQ). No one does that because they are scared to disagree with people who buy ink by the barrel. The generalized politican bashing is good too.

Have you seen the stuff this guy puts out?

Highly suggest you watch it from the beggining, the animation quality picks up, this is the "latest".

It's pretty high quality for something made by a fan.

If there's anyone that can get your idea rolling it's this guy. Maybe pitch it to him? Or find someone that can make it happen, IDK.

Post by: brujon on March 07, 2017, 12:50:29 AM
I think as long as you have an original story, and you produce all the material you use, it's pretty safe from copyright. I mean, how many fanfics/slashfics of Harry Potter are floating around? (Some quite good, in fact, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality and the unofficial/official sequel Significant Digits comes to mind).

Not to mention the very Youtube channel i linked, who not only uses, but mixes characters from several different popular franchises. And he rips audio from broadcasts to use as their voice, for authenticity. Although if you know anything about japanese it's really bad, because many of the dialogue ends up not fitting at ALL with what's happening...

They aren't making money from it. A sad fact I've come to learn is that there's a relationship between the size of your public and your fanwork. Once your public reaches a certain level, you need to invest some money into keeping the content aloft. But if you make money, then they come after you.  :P

I'm not sure about Brazil, but in the US pi]characters[/i] are also covered by copyright.  Content creators usually look the other way when it comes to fanfic and other derivative works, because it results in a mutually beneficial relationship.  But if somebody actually tried to publish and make money off of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality or whatever, you can bet JK Rowling's attorneys would have something to say.

Basically, if you're small and not trying to make money and generally "not a threat", you're fairly safe.  But you can still get a Cease and Desist order at any time.

So after being kicked out of the LARP I played at for like three years, I'm writing a magipunk LARP of my own.

So far there are mechas, catgirls, elves that are a mix of French and Roman Empire snootiness, a nation that's a mix of Brazil and Russia, and the equivalent of Imperialist England on steroids.

One of the rules is actually that the fuel for it is Rule of Cool.

So I almost didn't make it to uni today.

As it so happens, I take a van, because buses around here are both unreliable and expensive. Not to mention slow. I was running a little late, but I wasn't worried since traffic is usually so slow that the driver takes an extra five to fifteen minutes just to get here.

I turn the corner and I see him already waiting for me.

Fuck.

I pick up the pace, and am about halfway there when he turns into traffic and starts driving away.

Fuuuuuuuuck!

So I did the most logical and reasonable thing at the time: I called him and let him know he'd just missed me I sprint after the van like whatever chases a bat outta hell was after ME, instead, figuring I can reach him at the next traffic light.

Which as I'm approaching, turns green.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!

I pick up speed, and come up right next to the van on the passenger's side. I shout to get the driver's attention, but he doesn't slow down. So instead I knock on the window on the passenger side, he FINALLY spots me, and I climb inside.

There's a good chance this is gonna be on Youtube before long.

We don't really have a "share general stuff from your life" thread, so I'll just put this here.


Today I decided to be productive. I did some house stuff and a good amount of organization. I found an old flash drive so I plugged it into my computer and found out it was a bunch of Linux file backup programs that I wrote years ago for an old job and had already transferred to my computer.

I just spent over an hour going through all of the programs and writing comments and making minor adjustments, going back and forth referencing between them to do this, so that I could use them at any job that requires me to run backups of Linux servers.

Over an hour. Not writing programs, just cleaning them up and making them look nice and writing comments so that other people can use them and know what the hell is going on. Housekeeping for all intents and purposes.

I'm such a nerd.

So far I've only spoken to some devs who appear to have no power over hiring, and two security guards who are entirely uninterested in small talk.

That said, If I find a way to wedge that particular thought in their head, I'll be sure to let them know I have an entire portfolio of interested parties.

Ask them if they need a poor, beleaguered security guard and his raccoon sidekick

Get prepared for old fashioned uber hardness at the beginning of the game because you can totally make a character that can't get past the first combat section.

It's not a bad game but I think I'm done re-playing it for nostalgia.

I dunno if this qualifies as awesome or haha-worthy, but anyway.

I had a dream last night.

Apparently, I time-shifted into the house of a family that took me in. The kid of the family lent me a credit card and I went out to have some fun. I went into something that seemed like an arcade, and there was this one dude with old-timey-looking revolvers making shooting motions. I asked myself, "Is he doing what I think he's doing?" (i.e. playing an AR or VR game). I decide to try and give it a go. I go to the counter, they ask me for a quarter. I said I didn't have any, but if I could withdraw some money, that wouldn't be a problem. Then the guy asks if I am a level zero internet user. I have no clue what that is, and he asks me if I ever had internet access with a device that has no battery or wifi range limit. I tell him no and immediately set out to find a place where they can implant wifi into my brain for free. It turns out there IS such a place. Then I ask them if it will still work once I get back to my time. They get suspicious, and ask me if I'm a time-traveler. To which I say "I think so". Then they ask if I time-shifted voluntarily. I answer "...yes?". They get MORE suspicious.

Then my cell phone went off, waking me up, and I thanked Cthulhu that the Time Cops didn't catch me.

It is not uncommon for me to have what I call 'Stress Dreams'. the sort of dream that would normally cause people to have small panics.. the naked in public or trapped somewhere sort of thing...

they never actually discomfort me, its more like my subconscious is just a dick and like to tease me...

the other night I had one of these 'cant get where I'm going' ones. Typically this is set at work on back on the air craft carrier (or a combo), both environments have tricky navigation anyway...

So I'm in the carrier sleeping area to start and everything is Star Wars themed... cant get out of the sleeping area, then im stuck in the galley area... and everywhere people are SW characters...

Best stress dream eva... :D   :cool

Whenever I have a dream where I'm naked in public, I remind myself that I would never be stupid enough to go around naked in public unless I was VERY drunk or stupid. But then I don't drink anyway. Clothes usually appear magically then.

It is VERY real.

I'm guessing the giant mecha hand is the influence of the screenplay writer. He also did KLK and Gurren Lagann, so over the top is to be expected.

The other trailer lets on that they were apparently thrown back in time to 16th century Japan.

It even features Joker calling himself the "Demon Lord of 6th Heaven", which was Nobunaga Oda's nickname, so my guess is they'd be thrown back before the Honnouji incident.

I'm going to assume it has something to do with the Joker's crazy ass inventiveness, or just the guy behind KLK/TTGL being behind the screenplay.

If Harley doesn't get a mahou shoujo transformation sequence I'll be mildly disappointed.

I just watched Film theory's video on Fullmetal Alchemist's value of a human soul each one is worth around 654 terrajoules.

As a crossover, per BoVD's Souls as Power each generic unspecified soul is worth of 10xp when used for exchange giving us a 11xp=65tj figure. Since Magical Items consume one twentieth-fifth of their Market Cost in experience points, for every 1,000gp you need to invest around two petajoules worth of energy.

That's about the same(to a Fermi estimate) as you get from e=m*c^2 ing a single gold piece. (Which is ~9*10^14 joules, according to my phone. )

My wife took my daughters to “yoga with kittens” yesterday. I'm not exactly sure how that works, but apparently, it entails coming home with this little guy:

(http://i63.tinypic.com/28vervb.jpg)

(http://i67.tinypic.com/j7f0wh.jpg)

He's quite friendly, although I forgot how sharp kitten claws are. He's quite the lap cat, but he's already pilled up on of my pairs of jeans. When I say "lap cat", I mean "he'll spend most of his time on my lap, walking back and forth, leg to leg". There was a little bit when he just laid in one place, purring.

My wife is taking him to the vet today. If he gets the all clear, we'll see how he and our 13-year-old cat get along. Historically, she's been just fine with other cats.

Not to play the role of combo breaker here but I need a name to a book and I figured I'd just hijack this so someone could share it.

The book is part of a three-long series (maybe more) on a planet with liquid magical power. A guy from a church carries such in a vial I think, anyway he joins up with some kind of long living dark wizard outcast and they do some stuff. The BBEG turns out to be some kind of mental vampire demon or w/e that gets beaten by not thinking about him.

I know I'm super vague here, been a long time since I've read it. Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

Nice. I kept getting the download link is expired when I try to download it through so I'll have to save each image later. :(

Speaking of games, I just ordered the Magicka card game off Amazon. It's apparently a thing, looks like a pure red take on MtG too.

Looked interesting at first, but on re-read it seems like it's only coming up with spell names, not full spell details.

If it counts for anything, I had never known it was an actual rule in the first place. I thought the post limit was some sort of tradition to make it easier to archive threads.

It harks back to the software, you can read more about it on Simple Machines forum if you want a more complicated answer but basically the tl;dr is people have had suggestions for optimization tricks and it includes capping threads.

It also suggests stuff like purging new users, periodically marking all forums as read, limiting subforums, perform maintenance to optimize the database, deleting old threads, etc. We're not the best at this, but the rule of 50 pages has been here since the start.

Right. So anyway...

This past friday was my birthday, and last sunday was mother's day, so we decided to celebrate at our country home. And for us in the southern part of Brazil there's hardly better ways to celebrate than a barbecue. (You guys are probably familiar with how we do it.)

At some point, someone figured we had been BBQ'ing way too much meat and there was no way we could eat it all. So I gave them the idea to give our groundskeeper some. Since I gave the idea, I also volunteered to bring the meat.

From our home to the groundskeepers it's a little less than 500 meters, and then there's a slope for some 200 meters more. It's hardly a hike, but we're not exactly neighbors either. I was about halfway past when I saw the jaguar. It immediately growled at me, baring its teeth. And it started circling. Not a good sign.

I was too far from anywhere that would be able to help. The groundskeeper does have a gun, but I couldn't outrun a jaguar, and either way I'd have to go PAST it to get there. Plus it probably would go to where my family was, sensing the smell of meat.

So I figure. Sure, let's do this thing.

I took my shirt off and stared the jaguar down as I stretched a little. The big thing stopped dead in its tracks. I couldn't tell for sure, but it seemed sort of confused. Eventually, it stopped growling. But it did start walking towards me, albeit slowly. It leaned onto its front paws, which I thought meant it was about to pounce...

...and then lay down completely. And whimpered, looking at me.

I tore off a piece of meat and approached the jaguar. No reaction.

"Gimme paw."

To my surprise, the beast played along.

"Good kitty."

I fed it the meat, which it licked off my hand, gave its head a little scratch and went off on my way.

As a non-video gamer, I never heard this one before, not sure how well known this story is. But I found it to be hilariously fantastic.


Asheron's Call's Shard Of Harry

     The entire history of mythology is unrelenting douchebaggery, from heroes deciding that murder is cool as long as the victims are a different race to gods bending cosmic forces to screw over someone who forgot to say thanks once. And on Asheron's Call's Thistledown server, one group transcended this divine dickishness to become legend. The game ran a year-long story triggered by players shattering precious crystals, because chasing shiny objects and killing things are all MMO gamers ever do. Unless you want them to, in which case they'll do the exact opposite.

     The "Defenders of the Shard" set up camp around the sixth and final crystal, the Shard of the Herald, the prison of Bael' Zhaeron, Hopeslayer. Also, they nicknamed it Harry. 24 hours a day they defended it against other players and sacrificed themselves to it, because Asheron's Call monsters can level up by killing players. The Harry Krishnas impaled themselves on His Spikiness until He was practically invincible. This one group was holding up the next update for every server of the entire game. The developers, in the awesome manner of movie bad guys, stepped in to fight the players on their own level. Instead of simply rewriting the crystal as gone, they appeared in-game as mythical characters and called two high-level players to join their attack. These players had completed an earlier quest making them indebted to the story's cause, but brilliantly, one had already defected and was now a Disciple of Harry.

     The admins donned their epic weapons, sallied forth ... and promptly got their asses kicked. They were killed by their own players in a world they'd built, making this officially a science fiction movie. 20 Turbine staff watching on a break room screen were treated to players jumping up and down on the admins' corpses. Because Asheron's Call doesn't have a crouch button. Worse, Harry had resisted command-level instructions to power down. The staff joked that He had attained sentience. Understand: If a computer program ever escapes and kills us, it won't be because of the military. It'll be because gamers trained it to. The staff tried again. And again. The third time, they got lucky in their own game, and instead of banning people, they paid tribute to their valiant foes. The Thistledown server got a unique monument, the "Shard Vigil Memorial," honoring the players who had kicked the company's ass for so long.

Also, who you calling Harry Potter?
Not me, HP is for chumps. You are Harry Von Pottersing. By day you are a student trying to score decent grades, fit in with normal people, and work out your romantic issues but by night you use your patronus blessed crossbow to hunt and kill a creepy nose-less Nasfaru vampire's coven to avenge your parents. It's not a story about incompetent adults and one very lucky kid, but a story about a kid that learns to stab things in the heart with the Sword of Griffondor to prevent his enemies from raising from the grave.  :cool
