Re: Xwing miniatures game, who plays??

Garhkal, I have several friends who play - and co-owning three LGStores I can say that people either buy the Core Set + 3 (average) extra ships or just custom build a Core Set of their own from the start. Most people I know sleeve their cards. There are a lot of options for the acrylic markers - and...

Re: Strange response to a PM

The person may be troubled, or may really really dislike you. Either way - brush it off, and honor their request. Its probably a lot harder to be the kind of person that respond to a PM that way than it is to deal with them... so pity is an appropriate response.

Re: MP3 music/We live in the future

Yeah - 42" should be okay - again when viewed form a given distance - somewhere from 10-14 feet I'd think. The whole process is very relative that way. And honestly even if you got a larger CRT tv it wouldn't look good at that size. I wouldn't get Plasma btw. Your DVD's are generally going to p...

Re: MP3 music/We live in the future

Love this post Halaster. You truly are an old fogey :D (said with the utmost affection, I promise). First - no DVD will look good blown up to that size. They just don't have the resolution. Anything larger than 40 inches is going to be a stretch. 36" is ideal for DVD's with a viewing distance o...

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

That's what they get for flaunting a ton of money all over town :lol:. That tax was always there, but being broke they never had to interact with it, and never thought to ask. To be fair one of the guildmasters in the town also tried to get them to sign on with the merchant's guild. The guild would ...

Did they know of the 50% tax before hand, or was that just dropped on them?


NOPE. Lol.

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

For me it has been an interesting opportunity to force players (from both sides of the aisle) to confront their preconceptions. The most recent one was a newer player who was playing a Fighter/Mage. The party had gone on a quest to find a lost dwarven vault. They risked life and limb, fought Drow an...

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

I think the politics is interesting, and I don't mind people bringing their politics. I meant more, how do you try to represent different political views?

How do you handle In-Game Politics?

So this post is going to be touchy - I'm sure. But this is purely about an IN-GAME concept. I want to know how you all handle politics in game? For instance, in my Homebrew world of Arcannan ( http://arcannan.wiki-site.com/index.php/Main_Page ) I have the "10 Kingdoms of Man" - as well as ...

America has gone f*cking insane. Amen. Though it isn't just America. The whole world is going insane. And it is going to get worse, and worse, and worse until it all goes up in flames. History repeats itself. Happened to the Romans, the Maya, and the Chinese (several times, on account of "the ...

Hi Cole. Physician of 7 years here. I treat PNA all the time. Check your temperature daily, if fever returns definitely see your doctor. Also be concerned if you develop worsening shortness of breath. Keep in mind that the damage done by the Pneumonia doesn't heal over night - even if the virus and/...

Re: Massive DVD collection

No, not really. I have since bought some of them in digital format (across whatever platform I happen to be using). Honestly I found they just sat there. There were some DVD's I hadn't watched in probably 2-3 years when I finally got rid of them. Maybe longer. Just didn't seem worth the effort once ...
