Re: So, favorite pro wrestlers?

My very favorite is Finn Balor. He was brought into WWE NXT for a while, sold as a world-beater, then went to the main roster and was amazing, went directly to a title... and got injured, because Seth Rollins is a bad wrestler. Still waiting for his return. Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Neville are al...

Re: That was a Strange movie

My minor quibbles: 1) I agree about the Kung Fu Fighting. I love Kung Fu Fighting, but I expect something a bit different in a movie about a sorcerer. 2) Sometimes I don't understand why they're folding space or matter or whatever right now. Either the character or the producers or both decided that...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Crimson Viper! Gouken! Abel! Seth!)

I found pretty much the same thing with Krav Maga. I mean, that's it's stated purpose; allow an 80 year old granny to tee off on some terrorist's Daddy bits, but it does that well. I've been a dilettante martial artist most of my life, and I had this weird obsession with finding more and more esote...

Re: The Incident

It is my opinion that you're being more gracious than fairness warrants, but if that's your way, that's fine. I believe I was the next person banned after you, for criticizing the moderator's behavior and ethical standing. Personally, I regret none of it, except failing to extend the same criticism ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Crimson Viper! Gouken! Abel! Seth!)

Yeah, I was gonna comment on this sort of thing when I got to Juri Han ( SF 's only Taekwondo expert), but the style has gotten such a bad rap thanks to "McDojo Syndrome" (ie. handing out too many black belts to unprepared fighters) and a lot of other fighters discounting it (an old frien...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Crimson Viper! Gouken! Abel! Seth!)

Rhonda Rousey's long undefeated reign was ended with a kick to the head. I find that in fencing, wargaming, or any sort of intense competition, suddenly shifting to a "worse" option for the situation you are in can work out quite well. Your opponent is assuming you will use the "opti...

Re: [Exalted 3E] Tales of the Briar Throne

http://www.emersonkent.com/images/map_celts.jpg In my Creation, Europe's northern coast replaces the coast northwest of Gethamane . Some allowances, of course, have to be made, but remember, Creation is huge compared to Earth, so a lot less than you'd think. The Mediterranean coast vanishes, melded...

Re: [Exalted 3E] Tales of the Briar Throne

House Rules:

Custom Merits
Lots of times my friends and I have ideas for a character that don't fit cleanly within the rules as presented. That's fine. I can usually treat that element as an Artifact, something to build Evocations off of.

Re: Feeling out interest on a build thread

I know nothing about this system. You putting up a builds thread here is a way we can fix that. I'm HIGHLY in favor of creators promoting their systems here.
