I actually just type in the letter 't' and www.thezombiehunters.com/forum comes straight up.
Typing "t" on my bar gives me toccata and fugue in d-minor.

This is an interesting one. Not only is the language of the documentation well done, but the file is given in a way that each piece of information partially obscures something else. That one image really rewards analysis and encourages speculation; it made me go back and read over some of the other pages I hadn't looked at in months.

I kinda do see ARC as a dictatorship of the Evil kind. And before you ask, yes, there are other kinds of dictatorships. There are the ones who remove a press licence if they don't like what the papers say, and there are the ones who disappear the journalist's family.
I agree on both counts. Dictatorships can work well given some separation of power, a close connection between leader and led, and/or the ability to emigrate. Life in the ARC is perhaps more reminiscent of American democracy shortly after 9/11, when external threats prompted the government to wage war on dubious pretexts, practice surveillance on its citizens, and employ interrogation techniques straddling lines drawn by the Geneva Convention.

wait i don't even know what I'm doing ;a;
Algebraic Notation

Classical Notation

Or you can always say things like, "I take the little guy in front of the king and I move him forward two spaces."

also, I am up for chess....unless it is going to be something completely different than what I think it is, then I will spectate and make snippy jokes on the sidelines.
OK, do you want white? Go ahead and make the first move; algebraic or classic notation are both fine with me.

Yeah, I kindof figured it would be like that on this board. Oh well, worth a shot.

Quote from: SOK
Everything was done by the GM, (only sometimes we used dice, but that depended on the mood). And you know what? these games were awesome. ive tried playing DD with sticking to the rules, but that was just boring... GM should be god, and if this is a good GM the game will be fun, with a bad GM it would suck anyway.
This! But as a GM, I like having rules to fall back on. I'd feel bad killing a character without having it clear that a certain roll needed to be so high, or that his strength ran out, or whatever. Still, you make a good point, and I think we do need to ask ourselves why we need rules at all.


It's a refreshing system, but I think it's more suited for one-shots than long-going campaigns.
Mmm... actually when I tried it, one-shots didn't work as well, because everyone takes a while to get used to the cards. Over the past year we played a series of ten games, and it worked fine for all ten.

The true question may be : are all that combat rules needed ? We do need rules, but as you said before, having too many rules may break the fluidity of the game.
It is a problem, FireFog; it is a problem. But even with rules-light systems, there still isn't necessarily anything there to create mood.

Quote
That's truly a shame because in this type of context, the rulebook should focus on how to create a "scary" experience rather than "pew pew take that Elder One".
I agree; but Call of Cthulhu is fairly standard in that sense. In fact Cthulhu is better, since the stats for the Elder Gods are so high that it's pointless to fight them. Then again, there's an intricate, rpg-style board game - Arkham Horror - which does encourage you to kill the Gods with guns and grenades.

My native language is French ^^
Ah, franšais! I have a question - have you noticed that English speakers are less emotionally expressive, and stand farther apart when talking, than the French do?

Grandspa's guitars!
Not -

Wait.

Playing acoustic is totally lame and not metal. But then again, if we don't put that troll back to sleep, we may never be able to check our e-mail with high-speed DSL again.

If it's good enough for Dethklok, it's metal.

Also I wouldn't like a movie to elaborate too much on the science of zombiism, but as a thing between fans I see no wrong in it. It's not canon, if you find an explanation you dismiss it.
Well it's got me to thinking, anyway. Even if the traditional undead zombie isn't plausible outside of a fantasy / comic book setting, what is it about zombies that actually makes them scary?

* Contagous
* Mindless
* Fearsome aspect
* Attack the uninfected

Don't rabid animals and people meet these three criteria? If so, is rabies actually the classic zombie virus?

I MEAN I'M YELLING! IN ALL CAPS!

You will never be forgiven - forgiveness is not metal.
