Re: SDN Worlds 4 Commentary Thread VI

I'd just like to have it on record that I have no serious problems with Downfall - sure, there were Eoghan and Ascendant ships there before the Byzantines could have showed up, but there's plenty of ways for things to have turned out that way.

Re: In Los Angeles, A Police Force Transformed

Good for them. It's always nice to see corruption going the way of the dinosaur; though I'm certain there's still room for improvement. the LAPD appears to be making an honest effort to turn itself into a model force. If only other organs of government had the same attitude...

Re: The OotS Thread II

Under some rules, if you make a spellcraft check and identify the spell coming, you may cast the identical spell (or the inverse, if there is one) specifically as a counter. And there's a feat - Improved Counterspelling, I think - that lets you cast any spell from the same school as a counterspell,...

Re: Replicators invade the Star Wars Galaxy in the clone war

For a given value of low-quality. Lucrehulks aren't actually warships; they're converted freighters - they mount huge numbers of smaller guns, because they were easier to install than heavier ones without the ship being built around them. Other designs are purpose-built warships and are perfectly ca...

No-limits fallacies are a bad thing; I don't believe it has ever been demonstrated that Replicators can withstand Base Delta Zero-level firepower, which is what will be coming for them as soon as somebody recognizes that it's needed. were BDZ's ever used in the clone wars?

Re: Replicators invade the Star Wars Galaxy in the clone war

There's a fair chance something this weird would be passed up the chain of command, which ends with Palpatine - a man with proven abilities to see into the future. I'm predicting that the Replicator planet will be bombarded from orbit before they have a chance to do much. If the Replicators manage t...
