That was the intent behind the extemporaneous thought since it is a higher level spell, so it will remain relevant for almost everyone and not a completely silly over or under powered effect.

Off the top of my head and without checking language, but maybe grant a grade of Uncanny Dodge?

On a side note, taxation is theft because the government is neither inheriting money from us here in America nor is it trading sweat from its brow in equal transaction for what it takes.

* Facepalm.

Ok, this is going to go nowhere.

brought it up because Notice checks are explicitly noted in the team check rules as something you ought to use those rules for.

It's noted as a way to play the odds on the result of the check, not as the correct way to make the check.

The rules flat out say if everyone is going to make a Notice check it should be run as a Team check. That's also how it was explained at least once by one of the Trio back in the day. It's also a explicit example in SC2.0.

If you're going to have the whole team roll Notice, just tell them what they see. It's the same thing.

Oh, and Hi! I run it that way and did in the PbP games you were in.

The 2nd Amendment is about the right of the citizens of this country to stand up against tyranny and repression within our government. Why? Because we had just finished fighting a war against the very same thing.

That's a myth.

The Second Amendment is mostly about northern states not being able to defund or disarm the southern militias which were used primarily for slave control with a minor bit about a powerful block of convention attendees and congressmen who didn't think we needed or should have a standing army.

The debates in congress, correspondence, and the drafts of the amendment are pretty clear.

Congress' response to Shay and the Pennsylvania rebellions are fairly clear on the founders views on armed insurrection against the US Government.

Oh, and the Declaration of Independence? Irrelevant. It has as much meaning to US law and jurisprudence as the Magna Carta.

Considering I'm one of those icky gun control people, I don't see the problem with the photo.


Well, beyond the whole: whatever happened to just headshots in the yearbook thought.

So Chaplin should never have made The Great Dictator.
Team America was just stupid a stupid propaganda film.

Whatever. I have no doubt that you'll find some other reason to justify the cowardly and decision to not exhibit the movie which precipitated Sony's financially motivated move to take the insurance check and run rather then offend the vicious man child ruling North Korea at the moment. That's your opinion and your right.

It's still wrong.

Out of curiosity, when did we ever expect corporations to serve as bastions of moral fortitude? Seriously, I'm more puzzled by that than anything else you've said.

And I'd say the parallels to The Great Dictator are pretty damn significant to why North Korea would be so high strung about this.

It's not expecting Sony or the exhibitors to show moral fortitude. It's not even expecting them to show enough pragmatism and self interest o realise that now they'll be expected to fold by every extreme group when a movie thy don't like is made.

It's you implying that Seth Rogan and co are horrible, vile propagandists who deserve the death threats and having their work tossed on the trash heap because it offends some people who had the ability to embarrass the studio and threaten violence.

Sony almost certainly did it because, after the theaters pulled out, the math worked that it was better to pull a Bialystock, write it off as a total loss, and run away with the PA and the insurance check.

It appears the theaters pulled out due to fears over the civil liability they might have if something, even if demonstrably unrelated to the threats, happened on opening day following the lawsuits against the Cinemark over the Aurora theater shooting.

Which, of course, is why we carpet bombed England in 2006.

I hold dubbaya is seething contempt and I still would have been outraged if I'd heard about it at the time.

Not cool is not cool.

So, Salman Rushdie deserved it.
Kurt Westergaard should have known better.
Theo van Gogh had it coming.
Anita Sarkeesian obviously deserves the death and rape threats.

Way to blame the victim.

I know the first three.  Who and / or how does Anita Sarkeesian fit with the furor of the political & religious satire?

"Person says something I don't like so it's ok to threaten their life and safety! GRRRR!"

For the record, I dislike Sarkeesian. She raises a number of valid points, but looses too much credibility but sticking to her brand of critical theory so you get stupid things like interpreting PacMan as an example pf misogyny. It's not that her thesis is wrong, it's that her arguments and case studies are so flawed it makes it impossible to take her seriously.

No excuse for the horrific crap the internet's thrown at her, even if the claims by scum that 90% of it is faked is true.
