I feel weird admitting that I have the current #1 album on the Billboard 200 on repeat.

Everyone should go buy it.

That said, however stuffed as the boxes might have been there wasn't a shortage of troops, supplies, or officers willing to back that choice. If the fix was in, it was a popular fix all same.
There were constant shortages of troops and supplies in the south.  All they really had going for them were their generals.

Who weren't necessarily all that they were cracked up to be once it became obvious that the Napoleonic era was over. Lee was brilliant, but the method of war he knew was already made obsolete. First by the Miniť ball, then by the Henry and Spencer rifles.

Well, the one on the left is Nichole-458 who was done by Team Ninja, whose female characters usually look more like this:

Which would impress me if it wasn't supposed to be Master Chief originally, and they decided to "make up" a character for the game at some point by giving the character a female voice.

And swear Nicky was part of HALO canon. Was kind of an overreach, but maybe they really didn't want the Chief punching little girls.

Bungie decided not to use John-117 immediately and proposed a new original female SPARTAN-II. After Team ninja agreed Bungie provided the modified assets from Halo 2 and then further tweaked them to ensure smooth animation, Nichole-458 was always supposed to be female and Bungie made adjustments to the MJOLNIR-VI more feminine.

I know it's hip to dismiss anything as happenstance and cynical laziness, but Nichole-458 is and always was supposed to be Nichole-458, not John-117 with a different voice.

In other news... Grant was a drunk. Smiley

This could go here or the video thread, but since we're already discussing armor...

Japanese knotwork and modern body armor.

Nichole-458 was historic because she was the first DoA female character who didn't extreme jiggle physics.

3, 6, 7, 8, 10, and 11.

You want to look at the Guardian's waist and abdomen. The people in long coats (2 and 10) are Warlocks, the ones in hoods are Hunters, and the others are Titans.

The art's from Destiny, where I haven't seen a single instance of boob plate. Which isn't surprising considering what Nicole-458 looked like in DoA4. and then what the rest of the female SPARTAN-IIs looked like. Granted the female SPARTAN-IIs are even less feminine looking in their armor than Destiny's female Titans.

1939's The Wizard of Oz's Glinda really is a stone cold mastermind. Even if you allow for Dorothy's arrival and the resulting tragic accident to be completely coincidental -- and how likely is that, really? -- she casually gets her to remove the only remaining obstacles to her absolute power over Oz.

Nah, Dorothy pretty much shows up and tosses her plans out the window leaving her to scramble to find Ozma before the whole kingdom tears itself apart.

On a similar note...

Half of these characters are female:



Can you pick out which ones?

Even the The Herilian Agenda!  *swoon* Wink

Looks more like a Headhunter to me.

Also, the game really works better with one party and collective XP.

Just do a way with XP per the side bar then.
14  Products / Fantasy Craft / Re: Question about XP on: July 20, 2014, 05:17:46 PM
Well, that's sort of a gm call. I'd include them when figuring mob size, just like I include special NPCs that are part of the party.

XP for overcoming standard NPCs is Number of NPCs / Mob Size * TL

Oh, and Krensky is correct.

Of course.

I am Krensky.

My correctness is axiomatic.
