It is easier to explain a better view by saying something like "But animals are nice, here, look at this puppy" rather than "You sick *peep*, you *peep* heartless *peep* *peep*, don't you give a *peep* about the animals? You *peep* *insert nationality here* *peep* *insert political view here* *peep*!"

I think it's exactly the other way around. Especially on a discussion board, it is far easier to flame, or poke fun at somebody, than it is to be factual. If it wasn't, then why would so many people do it? On the other threads (I never read the July Fourth threads really so I don't know what was said there), none of us were really factual. Djur was not starting the debate by giving factual information, but by being cynical. When Motrax objected, he didn't give counter arguments, but made senseless spam. As a response, I didn't give arguments, but made fun of his name. So Sir David made fun of my name and flamed me. And I flamed him again.

It's far harder to make a real debate than cursing, because when debating, you have to find arguments that support your view. It is easier to just flame ahead, because it doesn't need to be logical.

Edit: Flames extinguished as much as possible. Sorry, this post was written at an unhealthy hour in an even more unhealthy mood. :(
I'd edit the 'more-trash' one too, but it was closed by now. So there.

If you are so sensitive about seeing an 'Anti-American' joke on the web, can you understand at all what it is like to be from a country with a history like Germany, and learning this history? To have to put up with your country being the first cause for almost a century of war, and with the fact that there are more anti-German jokes than on any country in Europe?

Please consider this when you protest against seeing critique about your country for causing wars flimsily justified, which were really mostly to fulfill it's own agenda.

What scenarios will come with the game? in Blades of Avernum

I'm not, sorry. I'm just quick to laugh about a text in which I think I found a logical error. It's happened several times here that people will then think I'm making fun of them (Afaik, someone even put me on their ignore list). Far from it; I'll usually make the same jokes when I say something wrong. So it's nothing personal.

Oh, and I thought you were referring to Spiderweb (ie. BoE) games before them, that's why I made the mistake. I didn't know you meant other RPGs. BTW, the VoDT story seems, to me, not totally original. Not the exact same plot is used, but there are some RPGs (not just fantasy), where someone made a real mess of things, and the authorities cover it up. Have you ever played 'Albion' by Bluebyte? (that's not an ad btw).

AMR (a mild rebellion), where you take one of two sides, is used fairly often.

The only really original scenario was Zakhazi Run, with a time limit for delivering something. Still, most people agree that out of the three, this one sucked badly. ;) (Note it's based on word of mouth, I never got round to playing it myself) :P

What do you mean by 'average player'? Do you mean that you don't want to play against a total loser, or you don't want to play against a really strong player?

If you mean the latter, I'd probably qualify, but if you mean the former, I guess I'm too much of a beginner... IMAGE(Chess (2)_files/wink.gif)

Oh and concerning 24/7, it's 2:19 AM local time here in Germany, and tomorrow I'm supposed to hand in the thesis for my 4000 word research essay which is half-done... IMAGE(Chess (2)_files/rolleyes.gif) (Yes, I *do* have summer vacation at the moment, but I still have to hand in the darn thing, because I missed the deadline before.

So don't complain... IMAGE(Chess (2)_files/biggrin.gif)

Of course the plots weren't touched before, the scenarios were released together with the game, so who could have made a scenario with the same plot prior to their release? :rolleyes: :P

Nationalism is sometimes a good way for a country's citizens to feel united. Usually, however, nationalism eventually leads to everyone running after a flag blindly. Which is retarded. IMAGE(United States Conflict Avatars (3)_files/wink.gif)

When I came to these boards, I had the same impression of Zephyr. He's improved lately, but imagine what he was like in the last few months!

On that note, first impressions: At first I thought that everyone on these boards was insane. Well, my arrival certainly *didn't* improve the average mental sanity on this forum. IMAGE(United States Conflict Avatars (3)_files/tongue.gif)

Anyway, I'd say Sir More-Trash of Exile is Washington, DC. where the United States government are currently supporting an illiterate, warmongering dictator, who is ruining the economy and seeking his own benefit, and that of the people who got him the presidency, and whose legal victory in the election remains hazy.

Concerning your own rating, I'm not sure FFX2000, but I seem to recall you being a bit excessive using chat slang when you came here, and also using a few too many graemlins. Or was that OWEN IV? Anyway, I see that - if you ever did that - you don't do it now, so I rated you up. IMAGE(Umm Hi_files/wink.gif) Hope it has an effect...

No. 2: Let me guess, you looked up Motrax's Archive? And saw that long list on links, of which about 3 work? IMAGE(Hello Have a few questions_files/tongue.gif) Or did you mean another link list?

There are plenty of custom graphics around here, and if half the links are broken because of tripod and geocities acting up, that doesn't matter because most sites contain the same graphics anyway. IMAGE(Hello Have a few questions_files/tongue.gif)
