Re: HUGS NAVIGATORS!!!

/wave It's been ages, Gala! Good to hear from you. I've been out of the game for over a year now as well, but still check in here once in a while. While unpacking some old stuff I had stored, I found all my printed out (and some hand drawn) old world maps up to Velious. I was reminded of those old d...

Dnevnoy dozor (aka Day Watch, aka Night Watch 2) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409904/ I stumbled on this on, thinking it would be just some strange Russian action movie. I was right - it is a strange Russian action movie - but surprisingly good! I've not yet see the its precursor, Nochnoy dozor (Nig...

Well, neuroArm managed to not kill the first human patient. This is generally considered a good thing, and the risk my team being sued is marginally less!

Hey Nebbie, good to hear from ya! I just finished reading what I consider one of the best sci-fi books ever written. The author's from Toronto, and I've actually had a chance to speak with him. He is a marine-biologist-turned-author, who takes great care to research the technical side of his ideas, ...

Re: Application for 75 Shadowknight, Jarous

I think we're due for some new app requirements: "All applicants must be Shadow Knights. Bonus points if you're Iksar." This is clearly a winning strategy for the guild. Paladins and Druids will be systematically weened out. (Excepting Kaldolur - He is one mean little Dwarf, even if he is ...

Right or wrong, Micheal Moore's specialty is convincing people of things. Although I typically agree with his agenda, you have to be careful to understand that he has an agenda. He does not hesitate to 'manipulate' facts to suit that agenda. I am interested in seeing the show, but I'll keep an appro...

Apps are not supposed to earn CNP before they are tagged. Sometimes, depending on how the attendance was parsed, they get accidentally added. Thanks for pointing this out Zady; we'll look into it.
