    How would you upgrade your body?

    If we're talking 'cleaning up the place', I'd get my eyes and lungs fixed, shed some fat, then opt for some enhanced stamina building procedures, so I could earn some super tough muscles. Of course longevity enhancements would be nice as well. If we're talking beyond human enhancements, I would...

    What's the TTRPG character that you've enjoyed playing the most?

    My current favourite, at least in the short term, has been a gnoll cleric, SkaarSkyl. He was sentenced to be ritually hunted and slain by his tribe for being a male Priest of Malar, a no-no among the foul Hyena folk of Faerun (the females are the spiritual leaders of the tribe). Even Malar...

    Legacy Users - Get Your Badge Here

    Hello! If a legacy user was an account from the original forum, then I am indeed, a legacy user. As an aside, I seem to have a clean, new account here, with none of my previous post score/badges/archived whatnots. How can this be rectified? My previous account was The December King...

    If you had more time...

    I'd like to actually finish making a game. I do enjoy the process, even the pitfalls, of creating them.

    Inexplicably popular books.

    I still play RPGs, and this grates me. I mean, I have some over-powered characters, and some min/maxed ones, and I like some builds that are designed to do certain things really well- lately, I enjoy playing a large, monstrous, inhuman bruiser that is happy to let the smart/clever ones call most...

    Who would win in a fight?

    So true about Kvothe! It's a shame really- I like Rothfuss's writing a lot. It's like the Something Red series by Douglas Nicholas- great writing, unstoppable sue-style heroine (except there is a thinly veiled, barely acceptable excuse of jacking all over the heroine because the tale is told...

    Who would win in a fight?

    Hard to say. Heracles has serious recognizability and PR (you know, having largely covered up his murdering innocent people and basically being God Of War levels of barbaric), but Gilgamesh is seriously old school... On feats of strength, I suppose I'd give it to Heracles, but Gilgamesh seemed...

    Plans for the Covid 19 Lockdown

    I am able to remote to my workstation, so I'm still working. My health puts me at significant risk from a pulmonary disaster like 19, so I'm home for the foreseeable future. Not too bad so far... but I'd rather be at the office- I like to keep job and home more separate.

    What was your favorite season of Blackadder?

    This is a great topic with a simple answer from me: All. All of the Blackadder is best Blackadder. Season 4 did have some serious gravitas. Also the Blackadder Kweezmus Special is brilliant too.

    Considering buying a drawing tablet, would appreciate some experienced advice.

    I love to draw, and have several Wacom tablets (a bamboo and one of the older giant bastards whose name eludes me atm), but I was thinking of getting one of the newer notepad-style drawing tablets that double as computers (where you can draw directly on the screen), like a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6...

    Mod Edit: New forums are live for beta testing! Link in OP (April 3, 2020)

    I still like to check in on the site. I feel like I learned some things about general debating on an online forum from my time here, I made some online acquaintances, sold some artwork, and had some fun in the Roleplaying Forum for a little while.

    Covers that are better than the original

    I always thought the cover of The Boys of Summer by the Ataris was waay more energetic and manic than the original by Henley. The original is still a great song, though. ... When I listen to Set the World On Fire by Fun, I add in the tune from The Blood Of Cu Chulainn (2010) during the...

    Best Netflix Original shows.

    Bojack Horseman, Stranger Things, and Dark Crystal:Age of Resistance, off the top of my head. In movies, docs and specials: Mindhorn, The Irishman, Team Foxcatcher, The Founder, The Most Hated Woman in America, Dave Chapelle's new stuff, Women Who Kill, and Castlevania were all quite good.
