General Discussion / If five people can...

If five people can remember this quote, and tell me who said it, I'm going to buy NWN diamond.

"Deathward is fer pansies"

If not then I'll keep lurking and making stupid threads every few months.

General Discussion / Getting Mugged
« on: September 05, 2008, 10:06:52 pm »
There are two separate occasions of people being mugged happened outside of my building. Both times the tenants told me two people were carrying bricks, of which there is a pile nearby due to recent construction.

What would you do if two people confronted you with bricks and told you to give up what you had on you?

My personal decision is to do what I can to fight them. I carry a knife with me to and from work, just because I live in a shady neighborhood. So the kabar knife I'm carrying is always with me on my trip upstairs.

It's my personal belief that the scum feeding on the working man/woman don't deserve what they think they can muscle out of me. My girlfriend who just ran to bed in rage thinks otherwise. Unless there was a gun to my head I would put up the fight of my life.

I want to know what you people think. I know my personal beliefs aren't intelligent, nor are they what the average person would do, but I won't alter my beliefs because someone disagrees with me.

If you were outnumbered, what would you do? They've all ready hospitalized one person. I have martial arts experience, am very physically fit because of my line of work, and carry a big knife with me, so factor that into my choice. I want to know what you would personally do.

So, what other games are you into right now?

I'm playing Quake Wars and Forged Alliance in my precious spare time.

I recommend both to anyone who likes stuff blowing up.

General Discussion / The Easy Guide to PC Suicide, by Eight-Bit
« on: August 23, 2007, 12:45:58 am »
I've noticed this is a subject that most people just don't get. I usually like to keep quiet and make the occassional snide comment here and there, but every so often I like to add something useful to the community I so dearly tolerate.

Murder is a lot of fun! Murdering yourself is when it gets tricky. With the help of this guide, your imagination, a tasteful post on the Character Development Forum, and a post in the character deletion thread you can be fresh on your way to being remembered vaguely and referenced obscurely, or god willing you'll never be mentioned at all.

Step One: The Big Choice

This is a toughy and one that shouldn't be made in the heat of the moment. A character that kills themselves surely can come back from the wonderous magic of the Bind Stones. How a character commits "suicide", which is hereby understood as self-termination and not following a massive group of poorly-equipped idjits to Firesteep to die at the first bridge, is by my definition a total lack of the will to live and a self-applied method of death. You are pratically giving up your spirit to the Soul Mother and taking your own life, by your own free-will. It's a purely boolean situation, and like real life, this ain't a round trip.

So there's a few questions you need to ask yourself. Important questions! They are, but not limited to:

- Do I want to do this?

- Am I going to regret this? (A little bit of regret is all right. But don't do it if you're going to stress about it!)

- Is there a good reason for this or do I just want attention?

- Am I bored with this character?

- Am I willing to accept that I will never play this character again?

- Am I aware that this means I'll have to start over?

- Are my alt-characters worth developing?

Step Two: How the heck do you tie a noose anyway?

Now that you've asked the though questions you need to wonder how you're going to go about doing it. I've always been partial to characters jumping off of things and making a horrible mess. They leave that moment for the poetic "last thoughts to go through head, before head and thoughts are smeared over Port Hempstead" goodness that I quite enjoy.

"And, alas, I shall miss my Mitsy the most. Mitsy."


There are several ways to go about it, and I'll give a few prompts because I'm a nice guy and I've had a few:

- Having a witness in game. This allows for two great situations, which include, being seen doing it, and doing it in game. This way people can know and the word can spread on its own. It also allows for only the people who care to know.

- Going out on your own. Why not just swan-dive off Ozy's roof into the shark infested waters that are his backyard? Sure, this is pretty much the most awesome thing ever, and it leaves the actual details out of it. Perfect for your loner characters. If I can't get my CD key to work (long story), Yu is doing this for sure.

- Keeping it a forum issue. This usually amounts to the best result, as there is 100% control in that of the user and no swanky jerks casting Hold Person on you while you're carving up your wrist like a hot thanksgiving bird. You can add the most detail, and depending on the perspective in which you write your character development thread, you can add a lot of feeling, thoughts, and motivation. This is my preferred method, despite how awesome being eaten by sharks is.

The Third and Final Step: Getting it all stamped and legal.

The third step happens to be the easiest as well. Just follow the instructions in the Character Deletion sticky and you're done!


You've just committed digital suicide!

Que pasa mi amigos?

My name is Mike Powers. Mugshot to follow, I can't find one and jacking one from a friend's myspace is proving difficult. The link below has me running at a pumpkin and smashing it with a 15 pound wooden hammer a buddy of mine made.

YouTube - Smash Club

Yea, we're all pretty immature.

I'll update this as I feel neccessary.. but here's the basic jist of me.

I play the guitar. I work a mind-numbing job. I'm a computer science major. I drive a Jeep that I named Bixbee, because she is my sweet southern belle. I've played a GMed off and on here for years now. Online RPGs are my least favorite form of videogame, Layonara just as some kind of right thing going on and it keeps me here.

I like action. I'm fickle and bored easily, as a friend here once told me.

Aside from Layonara the only other games I really play right now are Wolfenstien Enemy Territory and the odd Total Annihilation game.

I live in a wee town named Granby, located in a valley that fills with snow every year, and quickly melts causing us all to live on boats for a few weeks. It's fun. It's like Water World without Kevin Cosner's terrible acting ruining the whole deal.

General Discussion / Group Play Seminar
« on: March 17, 2007, 02:00:31 pm »

Every sunday for a few weeks I will be hosting a Group-Play seminar where I will discuss the finer points of working together as a group.

I will go over class roles in detail, as well as group tactics, and what to do and what will get you killed.
