Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

It's not really a diversity push if the characters keep getting pointlessly killed off in various brutal fashions. But it is, though: they introduce a character, get people who barely read comics to talk about it, and then when the character dies, those same people are generally not around to compl...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Sailor Saturn! Pharaoh 90! Marvel's 1993 Annuals!)

Wildstreak is what I would consider a good character in many other settings, but in the MU she's a third stringer at best, due to the overabbundance of similar one-note characters ... a pity.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Sailor Saturn! Pharaoh 90! Marvel's 1993 Annuals!)

Huh- sounds interesting. I like the idea of a deluded race of arrogant beings. That really does sound like something cats would be if they were sentient, LOL. Stormbringer sounds a lot like Dane Whitman's Ebony Blade. It's very likely that the ebony blade was modelled after the Stormbringer (or one...

Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

Mekton or Robotech fans? "SAMAS Fighter Pilots." I think you’d be better off snaring the Robotech fans with the prospect of playing honest-to-Minmei Robotech pilots. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/56/RobotechRPG-1986.jpg/220px-RobotechRPG-1986.jpg Sorry, I've tried and I'm sticki...

Re: Warehouse W - Bonelli Comics: Tex

Very interesting- the whole "Italy's longest-running comic is about an American cowboy" thing is something I never would have guessed in a million years. Europe as a whole seems to have things like that- superheroes never really took off, but instead, a lot of things popular in the turn of the cent...

Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Naga! Yuan-Ti! Nightshades! Nymphs!)

Interestingly enough some French stories from the early middle-ages described the wyverns as "so poisonous that everything around them withered and could kill with the breath".

Re: Muslim Culture, History and Politics - Open Debate

In my experience, the average Muslim pretty much just wants to go to work, make an honest buck, and go home to the wife and kids. Just like the average Catholic, Presbyterian, Sikh, and Atheist. Yes, there are some seriously twisted evil bastards out there — I’ve been in firefights with them — and ...

My weirdo-meter is getting pretty high, but I really the concept (i.e. I'm a big fan of Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo).

Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

See, that shit? That shit right there? THAT'S why I love Rifts. There’s a reason that so many gamers have a fondness for RIFTS, despite its archaic rules, schizophrenic editing, and incomprehensible layout... When it comes to sheer balls-to-the-wall crazy hijinks, nothing on the market really match...

Re: Dr. Doom vs Godzilla

Victor Von Doom, lord of Latveria. Godzilla, a radioactive tyrannosaur, and the King of All Monsters. Which one is better at raising children? Debate!! I's like to ask: which version of Godzilla? Heisei, Showa or Millenium? (I'm purpoutedly leaving the Legendary version out for lack of material)

Re: Macyn's Golden Gloves Gym(or,Intresting ways to Characterize fighting styles!)

Samurai were, like any professional soldiers, extremely pragmatic. They’d use the best tool they had for the situation they were in and, all things being equal, preferred to keep their distance from the enemy. The musket or the bow was the first choice, for that wonderful “kill him before he gets c...
