Re: Muslim Culture, History and Politics - Open Debate

My own understanding of the Muslim issue is similar to Woodclaw. Islam has no central authority, so there anytime people disagree on interpretation of texts, there is often not a higher authority to go to for answers. As a result, it's very easy for someone to take a line from the book out of contex...

Re: Running a play-by-post

The most important thing with a Play-By-Post game is communication. If you're running that game, you need to keep in touch with your players regularly, and you need to have players who are willing to commit to the game. 90% of all problems I've had with PbP games was either from the GM not communica...

Re: Comics on YouTube

I'll admit, I always thought Batman: The Dark Knight Returns was kind of overrated. At the very least, I don't should have had the impact it did, given how many people look to it as the definitive Batman story and an example of how he should be written. Outside of his Daredevil run, I really feel Fr...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Genis-Vell! Phalanx! Wolverine!)

The Silver Samurai is, honestly, someone criminally underutilized. He has a cool name, a distinctive look, and a pretty solid set of abilities. They just need to decide if he's a villain or a reformed villain trying to be a hero. Honestly, I'd choose the latter, give Japan another good guy, even if ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Genis-Vell! Phalanx! Wolverine!)

Why do I think Wolverine leaving his own body parts would've made a much better story? Well, they would just grow back, but it'd be . . . weird. I did like that story, where we got to see the Hell that had become this guys existence. Every year, Logan comes and cuts off a piece of the guy. A hand. ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Genis-Vell! Phalanx! Wolverine!)

I have to admit, I was a fan of Logan's relationship with Mariko as well, as they could still be in a relationship, but their various responsibilities would keep Mariko from just moving in to the X-Mansion or Logan moving to Japan. Of the women in his life, I generally felt that Mariko or Storm woul...

Re: What not to do, Part 2

Okay, Scots, Spectrum, both of you have insulted other posters, deliberately started conflict with others, dragged up year old posts in the process, and otherwise engaged in behavior not supported by this place. As this is your second offense Scots, you're getting 2 weeks off. Spectrum, you're getti...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Genis-Vell! Phalanx! Wolverine!)

Not every fanboy who takes the wheel is a bad thing, Christopher Priest fanboy’d for Black Panther and completely revived the character who’d been moribund since his Jungle Action days. Jim Shooter was a fanboy (and literally a boy, since he was 14) when he started writing LSH. Jeff Loeb is probabl...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

I think I'd only ever use Warhammer as part of some kind of crossover game, where they were coming through portals and winding up in franchises I liked much better. In which case, every faction would be portrayed as legions of overpowered, gibbering insane, unreasonably aggressive invaders that need...

I almost used a gif of that old SNL "Jane, you ignorant slut" bit, but thought that might be pushing it. ;)

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

I like to think of it as Warhammer: 1985 . All the insanity of WH40k, all the advanced futuristic technology that we thought we’d have in the future... of 1985. I might agree, except I f***ing hate Warhammer, 40k or 0k or Special K, all of it. The only thing I actually found amusing was a Youtube s...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

The appeal to Rifts is not hard to see. It's basically Thundarr the Barbarian: The Game . I do love me some Thundarr the Barbarian. There was actually a fun fan RPG of it called "Under a Broken Moon", which is an AWESOME name for an RPG. Though to be fair, Rifts is more like Thundarr meets Fallout ...
