isnt login better

I was mostly joking about the supposed animosity the various -chans have for one another, I've never been to 8chan. But no, I'd say the accessibility and (relative, mind you; you can still get IP banned) uncurated anonymity are neccesary components of the imageboard culture. When there's no username, picture, or past history attached to a message, you can only evaluate it on its own merits. Of course, this system is terrible for anything where an 'expert opinion' might be needed, and any sort of "opinion thread" vulnerable to manipulation (which is why some boards on 4chan, like /b/ and /qst/, have unique identifiers attached to IPs, though they don't work all that well). But that's not what one visits an imageboard for. When nobody's around to police for "bad behaviour" and nobody can "downvote" someone to drown them out, that's where truly original ideas can come out. It also, oddly, fosters the sense of community despite the anonymity; when everyone's equally anonymous everyone's contributions weigh the same.

I guess my point is, I don't think a forum like Reddit could have made something like Katawa Shoujo. Oh sure, people from reddit could definitely get together and make a game (and probably have more than once) but it would never be "a game reddit made"; it would be "a game guys A through Z" made.

(If this reads both overtly wordy and incomprehensible, I just woke up, sorry).

SpoonyViking
April 19th, 2019, 11:02 AM
I'll be honest: I'm not that much a fan of Avatar. I think it had too much filler and too many bad or stupid episodes, and I feel the show didn't age as well as it could have. But it was groundbreaking in terms of serialised children's animation, and it had plenty of genuinely good episodes, so overall, yeah, it's a show I recommend.

Zurvan
April 19th, 2019, 11:11 AM
The show is still great imo

I find that mainly the first season had some really low episodes, but the majority of season 3 is top stuff
Ba Sing Se is either hit or miss, but it's got some of the best moments regardless of how you feel about the city
I'd recommend watching until the end, especially if you're past some of the worse episodes
(looking at you, great divide)

After that I was always careful to tell stories that were primarily about me or my co workers, not about patient’s symptomology.

So no “and he thought I was Donald trump” or whatever, but maybe “and yeah, I got scratched pretty hard and she had been refusing medical labs and I’m hoping i don’t have AIDS now”

Wait, CAN you get AIDS from someone scratching you? Isn't transmission just through fluids?

Only certain body fluids—blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk—from a person who has HIV can transmit HIV. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to occur. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, penis, and mouth.
From the CDC

Say if someone doesn't wash their hands has HIV and scratches you it's a real possibility. Or if someone with HIV has wounded hands and manages to scratch you.

The slightly longer version of that story is that psych patients often do not practice the most desirable ADLs and as a result having significant amounts of blood and other bodily secretions on their nails is quite high.

to say none of the ones who will straight up weaponize such diseases by scratching open sores or biting open their cheeks to spit blood.

anytime the claws come out you always wanna go into medical records to see what’s possible. If they have refused labs, which they can totally do, it can be nerve wracking.

EDIT: ah, yes, as You said.

He's gone from having annoying defense and no offense to having mediocre defense and shitty offense

Shove on block made light spammers easymode, but I honestly don't see what was so broken about it. Sure, it wasn't fun to fight a turtling lawbringer, but it's not like there's a hundred tools to break that. As for Long Arm, I've never actually seen it land in anything BUT duel, tbh.

Supposedly the developers are trying to get rid of the turtle/defense meta

What'd they change about the rewards system?

Zurvan
May 5th, 2019, 07:17 AM
you now get rewards based on play time

which actually means that, unless you somehow play the max time limit on matches, you lose out on the normal steel/xp/loot gain
so now, lets say you stomp someone (or get stomped) in duel, first you received 26 steel, now you'll get

8 steel

this is true for every game mode, so the usual 50 from dominion usually comes down to 25-30+
breach and arcade are relatively okay, but grinding steel and xp are essentially doubled or worse, and the system was already a bit too grind-y to begin with

Yikes. I guess they're really pushing doing your daily Orders and GTFO'ing instead. Hopefully they'll buff their rewards to compensate.
Although that does mean you can't rep any one specific character that much since you'll have to use different ones to complete the orders.

You're right, I can't imagine why people who are possibly LGBTQ+ would care about a character also being LGBTQ+.
I also think that if your problem is with the shitflinging, maybe your annoyance would be better served being pointed at either the shitflinging itself or the actual root cause - shipping -, instead of at something being used as a LGBTQ+ symbol (among other things) since, what, the eighties?

I don't know what Misaya is going through but I'm getting a Damned Souls vibe a la Metro Last Light

Some years back (2?) I talked with Dully and a few others about a Dead Apostle Ancestor Misaya origin story. It was where she was experimented on by her father, was turned into a pseudo-Dead Apostle, fell in with Altrouge and Dead Apostle politics, etc.

Wrote about 17-20k words worth of that horror before I decided to try a different angle. In this new story, all the events of that fic already happened. In her 30s she's been to hell and back and finds herself pulled back down into it and is basically trying to do what she didn't before: something. Taking action into her own hands, etc. Rin nudges her along and they encounter Celtchar from part 1. Part 1 happens before Fate/apoc. Part 2 (Bazett) is during. Part 3 (Misaya) is after. Part 4 (Cary) is all those meeting up and coming together.

The timeline is a mixture of Fate/heaven's feel (and case files), Apocrypha, and Strange Fake. If I had to say it's most like Strange Fake.

- - - Updated - - -


Well, do they add more to the story than exposition? Are they there with their own goals and motivations

Yes, Rin (based on Fate/apoc's iteration) and Fiore (case files) are. But, thinking about it, they don't really need to be there.

- - - Updated - - -

And Celtchar is the only one to be in all 4 parts as a POV. She's the one constant. Starts out participating in a Grail War (part 1), rolling with Bazett & Caren (part 2) then Misaya & Rin (part 3) through to the end (part 4).

Maybe I could do something for that? Dunno yet. Gonna wait and see.

Not sure what to put this but my fav anisong dubber AmaLee just put out a cover for FGO's opening, Shikisai. Y'all can watch it here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzJ0u6cwQ00).

As for the previous one, the story is split into 4 parts -- 1 part per protagonist as the story progresses -- so each cover will feature its main protagonist, and I've got the references in place in order,

Fun fact, the va for Crystal Beast Amber Mammoth is Sean Schemmel, most well for being the voice of Goku in Dragon Ball and various other Yugioh characters. I didn't even know it was him when I first heard this a few days ago.

I think it's the combination of the Seiba hair and little chin with the big burly (and realistic) nose, and to some extent the mouth.

Is it worth bothering the professor about the fact that I lost a point on a quiz because the "correct" answer (according to whoever entered the questions into Canvas) isn't the answer given in the textbook? Half of me says it's not fair and the other half says that it's like less than a tenth of a percent of my overall grade for the course...

As for the second one, not sure if I still want to add in Caren--or even Scathach or Celtchar. Or 2/3. This is Bazett's design for the story,

I used part of Scathach's design from Empire of Dirt (story related), who becomes her mentor of sorts, so I could go with Scathach. Hm.

They do standalone but if you're interested in the wider cosmere (the wider world that all his books are set in) then it might be best to read others first. Apparently warbreaker has some links to stormlight so best to read it before stormlight (it's also free on sanderson's website).

I'd rec the first Mistborn novel. Incredibly conceptually tight and has you riveted since page 1 BUT it being YA might put you off. Avoids most of the YA trappings but is still partially about a teen character.

Yup that's the one. Wouldn't call it teeny exactly, more like coming-of-age, but the first novel does a very clever thing with the protag that's part of why I enjoyed it so much.
