Some options specify that you can't move the opponent into a terminal situation, but yes, an open square is simply one that is not occupied by person or object. It does not of neccesity have to be safe.

Sadly I'm pretty sure we'll make them again before too awful long. Probably not slaves again, not so intentionally, but another Civil War is a possibility.

I'm honestly surprised shooting hasn't start-- Oh wait, it has. Let me ammend that to I'm honestly surprised shooting back hasn't started yet, given the race and class war the conservatives and law enforcement clearly seem to be waging at the moment.

America would be a better place if voting was an irrevocable civic responsibility and not a privilege that it seems can be taken away by a simple stroke of some bureacratic pen.

Something I wanted to ask, but uses words too common to effectively search for it.

Some tricks, like Fend, Shove, Entwine, etc specify an "open" square.

For the purposes of these tricks, is a square over empty space considered "open"?

Entwine from Whip Mastery lets me move anybody I can hit with a whip attack to an open adjacent square. If there's a 5 foot pit between me and an opponent 10 feet away, can I entwine him and drag him into the pit? If an enemy was standing in front of the pit, between me and the pit, can I use a Shove trick to push him into it?

An opposed roll is simply a randomised DC instead of a static one.

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 Minié 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.

"Flawless" skill abilities (such as the Burglar's Very Very Sneaky) don't work on opposed checks, as opposed checks don't have DCs, correct? So a Burglar doesn't automatically succeed Trip checks when the enemy rolls lower than 20 + his level, an Explorer doesn't automatically succeed Grapples, etc.?

Quote from:  The Book
"you still succeed as long as the check DC (or your opponent’s check result) is equal to or less than your Class Level + 20."
So it does work against opposed rolls. It would also fundamentally need to or else flawless sneak would fall apart since it's only use is opposed rolls.

Derp, whoops. Should've checked the actual text rather than going by memory...

Edit: any cheap shots at Lincoln's character though are unwarranted. The man was POTUS; was his "logical" choice to let the US be torn apart and hope there wasn't constant warfare between them? Or that England, France, Mexico, or whoever wouldn't have gotten about gobbling up the easier to chew and swallow pieces?
Lincoln was out to preserve the Union at all costs.  He is on record as writing, "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."  That's not a pretty thought, no matter how you slice it.  To have upheld that States were sovereign, was to give up on the Union.  To crush the States was to ignore the 10th Amendment.  No way to win that one.  Lincoln chose the Union.

Hopefully we can learn from history and not make so many stupid mistakes in the future.

Word is bond, sir.
