Current The hard part of having 10 pounds of potatoes is figureing out which ones to eat, and which ones to ferment into alchohol. Do I just arbitrarily divide it in half, or is there a mathematical formula?

Anthem servers down so hard, that Battlefield servers are dead as well. I don't know how it got that bad, but I am honestly impressed EA. Looks like bethesda can get some attention off that jacket now

There are two types of people. Those that think the Elder Sign is shaped like a tree, and those who think it is shaped like a star with a little flame inside it and subsequently will end up dead.

If experience is the name we give to our mistakes, then I must be like 5 levels above everyone else my age by now.

Someone dared to disrespect BAWLS on the Quakecon forums and that has me so bothered I think I realize how brits must've felt that time we dumped all that tea in the boston harbor.


"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." -H.P. Lovecraft

H.P. Lovecraft is a big inspiration and If I do any writing or make anything, it will likely share themes with his work.

As far as myself personally, I have aspurgers syndrome (low-end autism) which makes it difficult for me to connect with others. It's hard sometimes for me to tell the difference between sincerity and sarcasm. This naturally distanced me from others, even my own family. Throughout my early childhood I eventually learned to mimic emotions and subconsciously display them when socially merited. I express sadness in relevant times(like a sad scene in a movie) when I actually feel nothing. This basically also makes me a sociopath (or at least I display some of the sociopathic tendencies), I feel I should stress that I am not a psychopath however, which is a more intentional than sociopath which happens from circumstance. When I'm with others I pretend to be someone else in a sense. I don't act like I really am, I act like how others expect me to, I play a character in my own life. This is why I prefer to be online and not IRL, I can be myself. I don't have to pretend to care in order to protect a friend's feelings, I can be myself as I do not care much for what some anonymous guy on the internet thinks of me. This may make me look like a jerk, but I try not to be. I say and do things as sometimes I just don't know how I should feel or act so I try to act like others expect, but sometimes i act the wrong way and ostracize myself. This is part of the reason I like to roleplay, it let's me act basically anyway I want, to play any role I want with little fear of recourse. I don't have to act how the world expects me to act.

To say Fionn was half asleep is an understatement. Any time where both the sun and a moon (never mind both of them) are visible in the sky is too early as far as he is concerned, but the responsibility required by duty is greater than his complaints. So here he is, standing attentive despite his body’s cry out for sleep. Though his body may be great by his birthright as a bear, at times like this where it falters, it is up to his mind and spirit to pick up the slack.

Out of both, sheer will power and a little bit of self-hatred, he is able to muster the strength to outwardly appear kept-together and to stand at attention like a stone sentinel, unmoving.

He will not falter, he will not flinch, he will not move until he is told otherwise, he will not…be weak. Weakness. There is a word Fionn hates. A word he hates because he fears it. He fears the idea of being weak. He fears the void within his spirit. He hates the emptiness within himself. He hates himself.

But that is enough of that unconstructive thinking. There is no point in revisiting paths already tread, not when one is looking for a destination. That is the whole point of this, the structured environment and constant orders of the military leaves little room for thinking. It’s pretty simple in fact, he listens for orders and then he does them. Sure, it gets hard sometimes. The mind occasionally fractures in the pressure. The body weakens in the exhausting drills. But neither quite compares to the incompleteness of his spirit. The part he hates himself for, and for him self-hatred is a powerful motivator. The force that strengthens his resolve in adversity. It was that drive, after all, that brought him to this point. Presumably, it was a similarly powerful drive that brought the others here as well.

And then came a distraction that almost broke his stance, a bumbling otter losing her balance in haste, crashing to the ground. A part of Fionn wanted to help her up, but he elected to stay at attention. She did not appear to be hurt, physically at least, anyway.

Then came the brief introduction of his commanding officer. It was also his first opportunity to actually see his commanding officer. Fionn was slightly impressed by his worn appearance. Blade seemed like someone who has, frankly, seen some shit and Fionn could always respect that. Though whether he is one to earn his respect is still to be seen. At the end, he made his first movements in a while, as he silently followed the group onto the ship.


If there is one thing I learned from Starship Troopers, it is that bugs are communist and we all know it is better to be dead than red so lets nuke the sucker back to whatever hole it crawled out of.

alternatively, if no pure fusion warheads are available, fire works pretty well if you can find something flammable to coat it in.

I poked my head back in here to see what what ya'll were talking about and see this heretical thought.

I like big boom, but sometimes big boom is too much boom. Case in point, that boom caused *puts on glasses to read paper*... A still unknown number of civilian deaths (estimated to be in the tens of millions), devastating shockwaves across the Eastern Mediterranean (and coating it in Tiberium fallout), the premature invasion of galactic space miners (which nearly brought the already vulnerable human race to extinction), yet another evolution of Tiberium which resulted in a much faster rate of expansion/terraforming and becoming resistant or immune to already developed methods of controlling the spread of Tiberium (resulting in nearly 90% of the planet becoming uninhabitable for humans in a little over a decade), and of course the extension of the Third Tiberium War (which eventually lead to the Ascension Conflict, but we do not talk about that one)

So yeah, while big boom can look very cinematic and badass it tends to have very grave consequences. And the only heresy here is those that do not follow the prophet, let they be burned so that the purifying flame may cleanse the unbelievers from the Earth. *Insert Brotherhood of Nod propaganda here*


Ok, now I think adding jetpacks might be a bit much, I mean it seems like with the spikes and all it is going to have a large profile for a 'mini' drone. What about fuel storage? what about amphibious transport that ejects troops with comical man-cannon like circus act?
*A murr can be heard in the corner as a certain otter pours over a drone’s innards* I, the great Sprinsteam shall create an army of foot soldiers so adorable they will conquer with mere looks!...

but what if Goths? I think they tend to be naturally averse to conventional definitions of 'adorable' but otherwise good idea. Don't forget to make em waterproof and maybe add parachutes in case ground deployments are impractical.

*goes back to considering how much boom is too much boom*
@Silverwind Blade I'll keep my excitement going. Do some Steel Talon skirmishes in C&C: KW to get into the mindset of badass mechs. Probably even get some good 'heavy weapons guy' quotes to use, though I already know I want to use I've got a present for ya! at some point, ideally accompanied by an explosion.... or several.

Hopefully since I've dealt with a few RL setbacks I'll be able finish and post my character....tomorrow.
I'm tired af right now.

Damn responsibilities. Always getting in the way of things. Why can't they just... not responsibilitate or something.

*nailed it*
@redbaron1234 I've been having no problems with the link, though considering it is a Microsoft product you will probably need a Microsoft account to access it. I use windows for my OS so I am already logged into Microsoft stuff automatically, if you use Mac or Linux you might not be logged in and it is not redirecting you to log in with an account. Least, that's my guess.

Not much info for me to diagnose the problem but it is never a bad idea to try to google your problem if you haven't. As long as you use terms to describe the problem accurately enough, you can usually solve it in 10-15 minutes.

@Silverwind Blade Well, it only took me getting sidetracked 3 times on this character, better than my usual 5 or 6. I also thought of another question, would modules on the GEAR be easily changed on the battlefield or is it a complicated process that needs a maintenance bay or something? such as in a potential instance where someone would salvage a perfectly working *whatever* from a fallen GEAR, would they be able to attach it then and there?
Guess this is when I start spending hours trying to figure out a good name whereas I can figure everything else about the character in 40 minutes. Heavy Gunner sounds like it'll be the role for the character I am working on. 'speak softly and carry a big stick'. I always liked having either more dakka or bigger dakka when possible
