Soon the Dwarves will be seen.

It will be getting dark soon and they mostly come at night. Mostly.

Re: Michele Bachmann is now a Swiss citizen

As she applied for foreign citizenship, her United States citizenship can be revoked. Basically, the next time she has one of her flip-outs where she vows to leave the country because it is ruled by Communist Nazis, the State Department can determine that to be "intent to renounce" and strip her of ...

Re: SDNW5 Map Discussion Thread

If the Dwarven Conclave's 6 sectors could be added to the map, it would be appreciated. I'm even less picky now than I was previously. Just stick'em anywhere in any pattern.

Re: Did the Allies know they were going to win?

SHAEF felt that the German reversals in Russia, with their massive losses in men, material, leadership, and overall effectiveness was the turning point in the war. Let's go with July 1943: 1) Sicily invaded and Italian mainland put in jeopardy and ended Mussolini's utility. 2) Kursk. 3) Continued fa...

Re: Close-quarter combat; Combat Shovel or Bayonet?

Judging from all the wars and battles throughout the 20th to 21st Century, I have to ask - in the end, which is a better close-quarter combat weapon, a sharpened combat shovel, or a standard knife-bayonet? Going back to the OP since the thread seems to have drifted away into other things... Combat ...

Re: SDNW5 Discussion Thread I

My designs are most certainly boxes with guns, and I have effectively "borrowed" those from others. I can see where these is some yearning for other alternatives, and since the point system we have in place is as wide open as it can possibly be, I'm interested in seeing what others come up with.
