General / Anyone investing in the Iraqi Dinar?
« on: March 02, 2014, 04:13:34 PM »
This subject makes me cringe so much, because I have family/friends who are convinced the Iraqi Dinar is going to be revalued, and that they will become millionaires.  I've even been given Dinar as birthday/Christmas presents.

I think it's a scam; my only hope for them to save face is for the US Dollar to hit hyperinflation.

For some reason, I pulled out my copy (4th edition) last night and played with the kiddos.  I had no idea that today was the anniversary of the game's creation.

enworld.org has a thread dedicated to it.

Does it need to be real incest, or would you be satisfied with simulated incest?

Also, they need to build a wall of ice that's actually 700 feet tall.

Not only do I wish this were a real movie, I wish this were a real theme park.

General / Obama: Man of Steel?

So, Iím really excited about this new Superman movie thatís coming out on June 14, and enjoy watching the trailers for it.  On my most recent viewing of Trailer #3, I noticed something; maybe itís just a little thing, and Iím just being paranoid, but if you watch Trailer 3, near the end, Superman is saying ďMy father believed that if the world knew who I really was, the world would reject meĒ, or something like that (itís at the 2:20 mark):

Man of Steel Official Trailer #3 (2013) - Russell Crowe, Henry Cavill Movie HD

Did you catch the cadence of the question?  Does it remind you of any one?

Yeah, thatís right.  So, I think, ďMaybe itís a fluke; they canít be comparing Superman to Obama.  Thatís crazy insane.Ē  But I take another listen, and; well, I donít know, what do you think?

*Supermanís birth mother says that Kal-el will be an outcast, but his Russel Crowe dad argues that he would be a ďgodĒ to them.

*Superman seems to be haunted by dreams of his father.

*His Kevin Costner dad tells him that he needs to keep who he really is a secret.  He spends a lifetime ďcovering his tracksĒ so that people wonít know where his REAL birthplace was.

*He tells Amy Adams that the symbol on his chest is not an ďSĒ, itís rather a symbol of hope.  Also, he has this idea that heís going to change the world.

*In Trailer #2, his mother tells him to pretend heís on an island (pretend heís from an island?  Hmmmm.)  On an unrelated note, Hawaii is the only island state in the US (Rhode Island, despite the name, is more of a penninsula).

I have a problem with this game.  It runs well, it's fun (for an MMO), the graphics are good, the controls are more or less intuitive.

But it's not D&D 4th edition.

I was looking through the Neverwinter forums, and found several people confused about "the rules for 4th edition", when the game is rather a loose adaptation of (re: some of the power names are the same, even if they do not function anything like the TT version) of 4th edition rules.  What follows in each case is a diatribe about how the 4e haters' suspicions have now been confirmed: D&D 4e is World of Warcraft for Babies.

For all the talk of 4e being "WoW on paper", the rules do not translate well to the real-time MMO format.  Are there any MMOs that use turn-based combat?  As I understand it, Knights of the Old Republic had real-time exploration, and turn-based combat, and it did pretty well, but I can't remember if it was multiplayer or not.  I think what WotC should have done right off the bat was to commission a party-based roguelike based on the 4e rules, and distribute it free to subscribers (or, say, the first five levels of the dungeon free, $ for the rest of the dungeon).

The point is, one cannot judge the merits of the 4th edition rules based on their half-baked adapatation to an online MMO.

People can have a freakishly good time using any rule set, including 4th edition.

What roles do you need in your guild?


You're welcome.


What I meant to say was, M. Ironheart is a Guardian Fighter.

Yep. They underestimated demand. They better get their shit together.

Why would they expect a large demand?  I mean, we already have "World of Warcraft", and it's free-to-play!

So, I started out in the queue at something over 70,000; after several minutes, I am down to 5,000+

Is the game worth it?
