  1. No offence Hassat Hunter, but you described one of the most boring mechanics possible for someone who enjoys to use summoning. I've stated my case a few times though so I'm not going to drag it all up again (at least, not that much). Seems there's a lot of people that don't really understand, enjoy or use summoning spells but still want to design them for other people to use. It's like having fashion experts designing combat equipment for the army - in other words, no fun for the poor sods that have to use the garbage. You can cut all the complexity out of something and it'll be balanced,
  2. I can't believe I actually read this entire thread. What a marathon. Although some of the most heinous crimes may make you really think that someone should die, upon reaching that conclusion, you have forfeited reason and begun to think emotionally. This is the entire problem with the death penalty. The death penalty in modern society will always be wrong. Humans are infallible and while ever there is a chance of error (which there ALWAYS is, even with "clear cut" evidence) then the death penalty is simply wrong because it is irreversible. The chance of wrongly convicting someone is simply
  3. I came here to support Project Eternity. I stay here because I genuinely believe that the people on this forum are very intelligent and the discussions here are very entertaining. Compared to most forums, especially the Blizzard forums *shudders*, this place is heaven.
  4. I don't think that simply being grateful is enough. I've always been polite and genuinely take care that all of my dealings with people cause them no more discomfort than is necessary. I show them all the respect gratitude that I would give myself had they performed the same service to me, which is often more than most would give, but I'm often unhappy regardless. I'd say that perhaps being grateful is important to happiness. After all, if one is truly ungrateful for everything then nothing holds any value to him. But clearly it is more complicated than that.
  5. It could never be real. That is because it would always be a simulation of reality. However, it could fool a lot of people. You'd need one hell of a RAM chip to store all the variables and one hell of a CPU to dynamically check everything. Honestly, I can't think of any hardware or software EVER being able to do it. Even if you could get hardware that could store such an immense amount of data and retrieve it fast enough, no human could complete the necessary code. It'd take thousands of lifetimes. If it were to be done, humans would start it but then probably use a very powerful computer
  6. Russian have big ****. Russian need no weak NATO tin can. Need only put **** in forefront and charge into battle. Many angles, no problem. **** can launch payload at any angle.
  7. Creedance Clearwater Revival - Green River! Awwwwww yeaaaahhh! I can hear the bullfrog callin' me! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JacHyPaEwDc Yeah sorry. I don't know how to embed a youtube video in a forum post.
  8. While ever you're thinking of summons purely within the D&D system there will never be an effective enough method of implementing them. It's like trying to shove a square peg into a round hole. In order to make it fit, you have to shrink the summon to a tiny enough size that it'll fit inside, and even then it's not a proper fit which is why everyone then complains about how broken it is or how out of place it feels. What you've suggested isn't really a summon. It's just a different kind of fireball. It's a fireball that unleashes its payload in small bursts rather than all at once, but
  9. Here's a fantastic solution. Good to see some people donned the thinking cap. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-24022866
  10. I think the police did the right thing there. Little kids should be shown right and wrong. It's a shame the police have to step in and be parents as well.
  11. I hope they wait for the report to come back simply because it's the right thing to do. If the shoe was on the other foot, the US would be telling whoever else to wait for the report. I agree with Walsingham in that it isn't right that just because the US made a mistake once that they never act again, although I wish it to be far more cautious this time. They need to make sure everything is sound and the facts are in place before they start anything. That includes waiting for the UN report.
  12. There are many brilliant possibilities for non-combat summons. In D&D, there are spells like Unseen Servant (an invisible and very weak creature that can perform tasks for you, but cannot fight) and Prying Eyes (floating eyes to scout for you). Anyone who played Warcraft 2 would remember that an Ogre Magi could summon an Eye of Kilrog. This was a floating eye that didn't last very long and would die to a few arrows but could fly at incredible speed. It was used for scouting. In Diablo 2 the druid could summon spirits that floated alongside the druid and gave him defence bonuses
  13. If you mean the genocide, no. I was 3 years old then. The UN hasn't even given its report yet, as far as I'm aware. The world should at least wait for that before launching any strikes.
  14. Well, that would be jumping to conclusions without sufficient evidence - which is precisely our problem with immediately condemning Assad with doing something that would severely risk foreign intervention... which would be his downfall. But if you're perfectly ok with jumping to conclusions that fit your bias, irrespective of the truth, then you're a rather scary person. As for the killing, that will continue anyway regardless.
  15. Adopt a Syrian family? Good idea. He can give them food and shelter, and they can give him the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad!
