Re: Poker Night (40k)

Send him to a Betazoid wedding. Watch how much fun he has until someone tells him that everyone there is a psyker. :twisted: Not just a psyker, but filthy xenos at that. Awfully human looking Xenos, capable of breeding with humans Xenos, with about as much difficulty as humans from different planet...

Re: Poker Night (40k)

ROFL LOL and all that. :shock:

The ending was just so beautiful!

I really hope you at least show Cain in his new realm. :D

Re: A Squelch of Empires (crossover)

My understanding is that the Imperium devotes far more of its resources to its military than the Empire ever did, and never (or at least very rarely) takes things out of service as long as they still work. Thus the Imperium has a huge fleet built up, but some of their ships are thousands of years o...

Whatever the case, I think Tzintchi is getting fancy.

Though I think I've more or less figured out what's going on.

6) Astromech droids: Imagine being a daemon bound within an R2 droid. What an awesome way to work off your debt to society in style. Except that it'd be far too nice for those that become bound daemons - those are the truly BAD ones. The ones that get Astromechs would be like Lars, ones who have fa...

Re: The Open Door (megacrossover)

The problem with using semi-sentient computer algorithms is that, eventually, a fully sentient one will emerge that isn't bound by its original parent programming. It might evolve a mind of its own and decide to take over. There's nothing 'semi-sentient' about a MkXXXIII's computer. The XX's were t...

Christ, another bunch of Bolowhiners. I thought they mostly hung out at SB. Oddly enough, nobody over there are whining about this. I'll say that the Bolo appears to still be missing quite a few IQ points. Otherwise, he would have dealt with the out of context problems far better than he did. The E...

If the Weave is the Internet of magic, then the Shadow Weave under Shar was 4chan. 4chan's too competently run.

Re: The Open Door (megacrossover)

Copper is pretty easy to refine and very common in the D&D setting, and they already have plenty of raw iron and steel to work with. When you break it down to that, that's all you need for basic electricity. At this point the tougher part is the insulator. You're pretty much stuck with organic resi...

Rereading, I was struck how Siralee was sent as the 'diplomatic' one, to offset the observant but presumably coarse Cydric. Cydric's being the more diplomatic one! Of course, he's probably fascinated by the construction, seeing the potential. Academia, Soot reduction is one of the easier pollution c...

Re: The Open Door (megacrossover)

Either way, the Praxis Empire will be divided into dozens of smaller territories that will inevitably war against each other, similar to post-Imperial Africa after World War One. It’ll take a millennia or two before any stable space-faring military infrastructure remerges, which will be held in che...

Do they gain any spellcasting abillities (like Ranger equal to their hit dice perhaps) while in their "mortal" form? Given the wording, the stat listing is for a 'generic' Ghost Rider. In reality, if Academia Nut wanted, he could gen Ghost rider versions of all 300 odd transformed men. While it cou...

Re: The Open Door (megacrossover)

For long-term consequences, when a ghost rider is in its “Love Quenches the Flames” form, can they sire offspring with a mortal woman? My scary(good) was thinking about anybody who dares screw with a ghostrider in mortal form. Kill him and suddenly you have a skeleton who's stuck unable to have int...

People do die in the duels, a lot, even if the majority of the duels aren't specifically to the death, and Chaos practices horrific tortures upon those they deem "deserve it".

Re: The Open Door (megacrossover)

One thing about Vita- she WAS horribly injured the last time TSAB saw her. She could play up that angle to explain any differences. After all the TSAB DOES know there can time rate differences between dimensions, and Vita can blame any differences on recovery/puberty/being stuck with chaos.
