    Remember, this is not about your actual philosophical perspective but how you handle these notions in your campaigns regardless of your personal beliefs about the real world. (After all, anyone competent enough to pretend that a bit of dwarf star can enable someone to shrink enough to ride...

    I dunno . . . I rather like the idea of a game in which all the current crew have become idiots due to genetic interbreeding, which was the plan of the government all along because stupid people make controllable people. Onboard education could consist exclusively of Bill O'Reilly and Sean...

    In your superhero campaigns, how have you dealt with the notion of Fate versus Free Will (including possibly avoiding the topic altogether)? Or the related notions of Destiny, Karma, Prophesy, and/or godly or Divine decree? I'm posting this here and also in the fantasy and horror forums ...

    A luxury one does not have when one game masters at a convention as a scheduled game master, as I have, or game masters an open unofficial game at a convention, as I have, or accepts appointment as the primary game master for a specific gaming group composed of friends but also guests of the...

    IMHO, it's all right to set up a trap that only sexist players would fall for, but it is wrong to use a deus ex machina to push them into the trap -- or to have the trap hunt them down. And if the sexist somehow doesn't fall for the trap, well good for him or for her! That difference between a...

    Yeah, that was one of the many great moments of the film! Inspired by Alan Moore's original Watchmen series no less. It also makes sense even in a pro-cape comic book: rubber characters like Elasti-Girl and speedsters like Dash never wear capes in the comic books, and the only "hard light"...

    Unfortunately, the infamous geek fallacies http://plausiblydeniable.com/opinion/gsf.html are still with us even today. When it comes to this thread, the important thing is that people have an opportunity to understand the logic and wisdom underlying the original use of tights and capes in...

    magic-rhyme replied to a thread Favorite Quotes in Off Topic
    Okay, so this thread was killed off because we weren't supposed to consider our favorite quotes from literature, poetry, plays, songs, public speeches, TV series, non-fiction works, philosophers, public figures, etc.? Most of my favorite quotes don't come from movies. Give me Socrates, Lao-Tzu,...

    My players recently confided to me that they can almost always tell which supervillain will be the most challenging by how he or she handles gender. If one of the supervillains is either a strong, impressive female or a male who eschews traditional gender roles, that particular supervillain is...

    Nijineko, while browsing through some older threads I came across something you wrote about favorite superheroes. You wrote about how much it disappointed you when you came across a superhero comic book story -- or a superhero roleplaying game session -- in which women were treated as...

    And that is what the vast majority of anti-capes and anti-tights people stubbornly refuse to do: carefully consider. They also aren't very good about accepting any viewpoint other than their own. Of course! But whether one's dislike comes from intelligent consideration based in an...

    The entirety of this thread all circles back to an old saying we had in the geek community and the gaming community for most of their existences but which seems to have been forgotten the past couple of years: " Never waste time talking with, gaming with, or giving any respect to people who are...

About Me
Biography:
Names Joe, I'm in the army, deployed to Iraq now so I cant play as of right now, but I'll be able to for a good bit after Christmas. I haven't been in the Oklahoma area for a while due to being stationed out of Fort Hood, Texas. Which is the biggest reason I'm on this site, I'd love to get into any kind of game really. Need to make up for all those RP fixes I missed throughout the deployment....

I've played Warhammer 40k Dark Heresy briefly, Dungeons and Dragons 3.5, also have a few 4ED books, but no group to play it with so.....yeah. I've played Star Wars RPG Saga and the one before it, have almost all the Saga books, easier to say which ones I don't have instead of what I do.

I also play Magic the Gathering, and Star Wars Minis, and Munchkin....of any kind.

I've played table tops for about 4 years now, so not as long as I know some have played, but I am enthusiastic about it, love the stories as much as I do using power attack to cut enemies down.

Anywho, I'm up for virtually any game. I'll usually go buy books and try to 'study' up on the game before playing, and normally am able to get into new games fairly easily, so long those I play with will bare with me.

So yeah...any game. Almost any time, if I'm on leave and in Oklahoma, I guarantee I will play.
