  1. Ok, question, are Soulbound Weapons still limited per class or are they truely universal now? ... I ask because apparently I prefer using weapons that aren't "meant" for my character's class and it's alittle annoying to be told that the weapon I want to use isn't allowed.
  2. Well to be fair, if "The Bell" hadn't crash landed some decades later on America soil then the Third Reich's mastery of temporal displacement would have rendered all this talk of racism rather ... moot I suppose.
  3. Hmm, vaccines ... witchcraft I say! Sickness is clearly a curse from God to smite the Sinners! --- Uh-oh, is that a tickle in the back of my throat? Moon Landing ... actually happened but the footage that was broadcast was faked in order to cover up what they really found up there. Evolution you say? Get your hands off me you dirty stinking apes! Quarks? You trying to destroy the world son? I swear, kids these days with their strangelets and ice-9.
  4. As I recall, in one of the early printings of The Hobbit, China was mentioned as existing and being somewhere one could travel.
  5. Besides, something that I've found is that the "Chicken Little" nutcases on Global Cooling no wait ... Population Bomb no wait ... Death of the Oceans no wait ... Global Warning ... err, Climate Change seldom want to address exactly what a "sustainable lifestyle" would actually look like in both the First as well as the Third Worlds, and even when they do they pad the actual capabilities of current alternate energy generation technology instead of using realistic numbers.
  6. Yup, the same Justice Department that is headed by the entirely impartial and even handed Eric Holder. Also unless I'm misremembering I seem to recall hearing something about the methods used in said report as being flawed. Pretty much everyone has condemned the emails though. However, even if I were to take the entire report at face value, racism still didn't play a part in the justified self defense that ended a young man's life, at least not on the part of the officer. ... I'm still more interested in whether racism is going to be found in the background of the pig in the South Carolin
  7. You mean the same Ferguson where a young man attacked and forced an officer to defend himself shortly after strong arm robbing a store? --- However if you are referring to what I think you are in South Carolina, yeah, the pig who shot a fleeing man in the back is almost certainly going to get what he deserves. However, unless I missed something in the South Carolina shooting (Which is possible.), racism hasn't been proven to be a factor, AND it certainly wasn't in Ferguson's "Gentle Giant".
  8. I don't know, I'm all for "interesting tactical combat" but the entire "stripping layer after layer of defense" in my opinion just wasn't all that interesting and lead to "God Guide It!" play more then actual tactics ... similar to how sometimes in say ... Dragon Age your mages "just know" where and when to drop a couple of nasty AoE effects in order to counter an upcoming ambush.
  9. Yeah, it was annoying to see only one example. I guess they wanted to keep it American. But you could easily put that in other contexts and see how it transfers. You're less of a cynic than I. I really thought you were going to give me an irrefutable example of how "I make assumptions about groups of people ", in fact I have asked for evidence of that several times and I haven't one valid response. This is no different I have explained several times now that what I meant is I don't make assumptions like " all Russians are homophobic " or " all Americans are warmon
  10. RE: Cropping Quotes ... Agreed, especially when trying to reply to the "staircase to hell" exchanges and the forum keeps spitting errors back at you. ... As an aside, does anyone else have almost every "reply" start with a random format preselected? Interesting read, although I tend to question it's own bias considering that virtually all, if not every example given seemed aimed at portraying white people as guilty of some form of racism. ... Still, even so I don't really see why I should accept your "dictionary definition" over the one that KaineParker offered. Hells,
  11. I really thought you were going to give me an irrefutable example of how "I make assumptions about groups of people ", in fact I have asked for evidence of that several times and I haven't one valid response. This is no different I have explained several times now that what I meant is I don't make assumptions like " all Russians are homophobic " or " all Americans are warmongers " In your apparently " glaring " example of me doing this you are saying this is not true because I used the words " am sure we will now hear " but I also said the words " most straight people " ...the oper
  12. Ok .... and? I've been told that one of my cousins although born physically female has some odd genetic mutation where she has an odd combination of "XXYX" or the like. She became convinced that instead of a straight female she was meant to be a gay male; underwent a sex change and although still extremely depressive does seem to be at least somewhat happier with life as a result. ... And you know what? More power to her as far as I'm concern, I wish them nothing but the best in life. (The boyfriend is fully aware of my cousin's history as is proper.) --- Now see, I relayed my cousin's
  13. What the hells BruceVC, I've got the breath to waste at the moment. The reason that my quoting your post fits is it's a perfect example showing you making assumptions about a group of people; in this case the kinds of comments that you "are sure we will now hear". However, that wasn't the reason your reaction caught in my craw ... no I expect SJWs to come into these threads with at least as many assumptions and biases as they proclaim their dreaded foes to have ... the reason that your reaction struck a nerve is that it read to me as being self centered and focused on your narrative with Mungr
  14. Personally I'd be happy with a toggle for a purely cosmetic cape and then morph the current capes into "amulets".
  15. Nonsense. Everybody does. The trick is (1) attempting to be aware of making those assumptions and (2) being able to set them aside when they're pointed out to you. Human cognition is based on categorization and generalization. It's just the way we tick. It's how we deal with the resulting biases that count. Once again give me examples of where I have made assumptions of groups of people ? Your reading comprehension leaves a lot to be desired. Try reading it again. If you want I can help you. Please do, I clearly need help Originally I was going to largely igno
