Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Sixty Six Up

Hmm, as somebody else points out, angels seem to have worse healing capability then Memnon, his wings were in a state that made Maion's look perfect. Though I'm not sure if even all Demons have healing abilities that good. I expect Lemuel would probably not take "Okay, so we'll take her wings off w...

Re: Just to stick my neck out...

*Looks at TRW* Oh, how hilariously ironic... oh wait, whoops, it's when the UK calls a war, not when America does it. Heh... The War on Terror is not an official declared war between states. We didn't form a National Government during the Korean War, The Falklands War, of Gulf War. And in my opinio...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Sixty Four Up

I wonder if a new reason for people to get pissed just popped up. I almost half expect some self-proclaimed, die-hard fan of Robert E. Lee go into a rage at a fic having "Massa Robert" get owned in modern war games and getting lectured about it. I mean, you'll never know what some people can get al...

My eyes just crossed and I think I lost a few points of eyesight at the sheer awesome . Amphibious Marine assault on heaven, FUCK YEAH! Personally,...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Sixty Two Up

Maybe if it catches on, I can get a Salvation War t-shirt. Or maybe a Salvation War movie. I'd watch it a million times, even if Uwe Boll or Michael Bay directs it. For fuck's sake NO!!! Uwe Boll must never be allowed to direct a movie based on this magnificent work of literature! However, I do bel...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Fifty Seven Up

The equivalent of planets. It's explained that they live on the inside, so naturally there wouldn't be stars. Granted, there doesn't seem to be any way to get out - wasn't it stated a while ago that if you dig down far enough, you come up somewhere else? If the hell-verse "planets" are topologicall...

On the other hand, if Yahweh is the party you're referring to, that's...he's a little bit more convoluted and headache-inducing for me.

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Forty Four Up

As for the hero worship of dead generals, it's just fans of the story dreaming of "what if's" and such My thoughts exactly, although inserting famous people into background positions might not be such a bad idea. It's already happened with Robert E. Lee, and I can think of two more who would be goo...

I am curious, and I honestly can't remember if it was brought up but.... Can a 2nd Lifer get a 1st Lifer pregnant, or vice versa? Because sooner or later, someone's going to try it. I don't think humans are reproductively viable in their second-life. I shudder at the thought of trying to figure tha...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Forty Two Up

Yeah, but they are not fighting another country with lots of cities to wipe out here, but a single beast. And that beast happens to be on their home ground no less. So a single warhead should do the job and in case of a miss the other warheads remain for further tries. Shooting everything at once i...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Forty One Up

Most of the triple miniguns floating around are mere mockups, though at least one is real. Totally pointless for any military purpose. An automatic grenade launcher would be much more effective at killing people in the open at long range, and a single minigun is already overkill at short range. Gal...

If it's genetic-based perhaps not, but some defects that are caused by, for instance, a deficiency of something might well be corrected when the replacement bodies are grown. Even for some genetic disorders it m...

I always thought that having Cylon resurrection technology would be a great boon to humanity, with no more needless death from things like disease.

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Forty Up

Interesting view of the IDF by the way. Is it really that bad? In a command sense yes, they are that slipshod and negligent. It's not so much lack of ability as a conceptual problem; they tend to see staff-work as being boring administrivia dictated by a bunch of hide-bound reactionaries who are in...

and we've got more than enough to make sure even a gigantic angel gets high. Wow, I totally missed that point. Angels are probably a bit larger than humans even at the lower scale; and that means more drugs will be needed overall. That gives me an eeevil idea. Crop dusters made into unmanned drones...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Thirty Five Up

The Aesir always struck me as a fairly hands-off set of gods.

The one possible problem is Loki and his family.. it's completely bizarre that t...

Re: The Salvation War: Pantheocide. Part Thirty Five Up

Certainly there are a lot of other pantheons and belief-systems that have nothing to do with Judeo-Christian mythology. Monotheism itself only became a major theme in world religion over the last 1900 or so years, with the closely coinciding rise of Christianity and Islam. Even then significant poc...
