    I was wondering Master Lich... ive been exploring the, dark side of magic, should i pursue this course, do you perhaps know anyone who could help me.....transcend into undeath?

      "Master", you surely know how to address me properly. Of course you should pursue...

      Wait... something is wrong. They're listening in on us. AHEM.

      As I was saying, of course you should pursue the way of LIGHT magic and JUSTICE and DOING GOOD...

      too bad this show had only 2 seasons, good stuff. but the historian and former military mind i still possess is screaming at the breaking of formation lol, we would have been court martialed and punished too!

      Yeah, why did he do that, man? You just don't simply break the formation, everyone knows that!
    • Skatan

      Epic show, epic scene. At least the first part which is one of the most interesting, and arguably most historically correct depictions ever filmed. Trying to convince my GF to watch it with me, but I've hyped it so much that now she's hesitant to see it 'cause she's afraid she'll be disappointed. It's like I've backstabbed myself :-/

      oh wow i missed all this! im glad everyone liked it, yes the unit rotation to keep fatigue low, very accurate, they are missing the initial pillum throw (or maybe they ran out they are covered in blood lol) but yes, a roman breaking formation is highly unlikely, and striking a command officer, im pretty sure thats a serious offense. great show though, i WOULD post the arena scene of this show, (which you can look up on your own, its AMAZING. warning lots of gore and graphic language) so yea, that aint happening sadly

  • I'm not so good with Creepy Mystery Thriller stories. So... If any of you read this, please tell me that this is still reality. That everything is fine. That there won't be an evil ghost trying to kill me tonight. Please, tell me that, NOW.

      Omg, I'm ALIVE I mean... UNDEAD! Yay! It's the next morning and I survived? Uhm... sur-undead-ed?

      But of course I was having a creepy nightmare.
      My mind was using a malicious trick to make me believe the nightmare was real. Because within my nightmare I was having another dream. And in that dream some things didn't add up and I realized it and I was aware that I was dreaming so I made myself wake up INSIDE my nightmare!

      That is so nasty! When you wake up you believe that you are in reality. But I wasn't. I was in my nightmare but I thought it was real because I had woken up from a dream.

      That's really nasty.

      Yeah tell Anduin, I don't care :P
      I'm so happy that I made it through the night xD
    • Shandaxx

      Seriously, why do characters in thriller/horror stories make such STUPID decisions. It's like all characters in those genres have never watched a thriller/horror movie themselves. It's like they act so stupid on purpose.

      When you are in a creepy place where creepy things have happened you DO NOT SEPARATE from each other. DAMN IT. DON'T SEPARATE! Man... How stupid, stupid, stupid. The bad things always happen when you separate, everyone should know that.

      I loved how in "Agents of SHIELD" they referenced this. They acknowledged this. The group stayed together at one point for exactly this reason.

      "When sombody calls out 'hello' when there's an intruder in the house. Like you really think they're going to answer 'what's up, I'm in the bedroom. Gonna kill you. Lolz.'"

      Yeah you only give your position away.

      And a lot of other points, man. So stupid. I'm not much into Horror/Thriller but if there was a thriller with as little typical horror/thriller tropes as possible... well, then it wouldn't be a thriller anymore right? That's sad.

      There's a thread somewhere with tropes you can't stand anymore. Isn't it even your thread? I'll drop by there.

  • Two days ago I was told that, the value of a human's life is independent from their economical success/efficiency. That the value of a human's life is independent from what kind of job you have and how much money you make and how successful you are in your job.

    That was quite a shock for me. There was a time, in my childhood probably, when I would have agreed to that. But since I was a teenager I've seen the world act quite differently. In an achievement-oriented society like Germany it is very easy to forget that there is something else in life besides career, success, achievements and optimization of the professional and private life.

    In the end people always believe what they want to believe. I think I will need some time to process this. But I do think that I would like to meet people who not only think like in the first paragraph above but also act according to it.
    February 7
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Of course to those who disagree with the first paragraph there can be only one conclusion: Obviously I am not having a successful career. And for some people that is a measure of my life's worth.

      And I need to learn to give a sh*t about such peoples' opinions.
    • Skatan
      Skatan
      I believe so as well, but I am probably in the category of people you would classify as not acting according to it since I have a uni exam and a fairly prosperous career within Business Control and now Project Management.

      I guess what I wanted to say is that even if people might seem like they are in one category, doesn't mean they are. If you would look at me biased, you would see some dude, voting right, career, suit and tie etc, but if you actually knew me you would see an outspoken feminist, preferring sneakers and jeans, voting middle party, active in anti-rascism/trans-phobia, loving really obscure death/black metal and a vegetarian. Even in Germany I would assume you would find a throng of ppl like me, looking to be into one black/white category but really having their feet firmly planted into a multitude of different ones, some almost conflicting.
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Nope, that is not what I mean. "Acting according to it" does NOT mean that you should have no successful career. Not at all. You may as well have one. I'm looking for people who don't measure someone's life worth mostly by that someone's job - independently from their own career.

      And from what you write and from how I've got to know you here, you aren't anything like the people I'd rather avoid. Quite the opposite ;)
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      A person's life is valuable simply because of what it is. The entirety of who someone is. There is nothing more valuable than a life. And that value is independant of percieved success, status, creed, nationality, what have you.
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      That was what I was taught as a child. Then as an adult I've come to see that not everyone acts according to that. In fact, I've concentrated far too much on the people who don't act like that.

      I should focus on the people who think like what you wrote and act according to it. For me, there is nothing to gain trying to get approval from people who wouldn't like me anyway.

      Thanks for your inputs, guys.

      I have noticed. I am reluctant yet to celebrate because I know that someone fiddled with the forum reactions again to make that happen. Sure this time, I'm the one to profit from it, but what keeps that someone from doing it again only to the benefit of Anduin then.

      What if there is someone with that strange sort of humor who'd like to keep Anduin and I always around the same amount of points and at some time let one of us prevail over the other only to reverse that on the next occasion?

      And all of that just to ensure a fierce, entertaining battle between Anduin and I for domination over the other.

      If I celebrated now, would that someone not have the power to push Anduin's points again to render my victory moot? And then Anduin would glee in joy and celebrate, only for his victory taken away yet again by that certain someone.

      I'll be honest: in light of @BelgarathMTH's worrying in the worm thread, I actually found this video pretty disturbing.

      The reasons were symbolic. It made me imagine a human who had been hollowed out, and nobody realized anything was wrong until they fell over.

      It was just supposed to be a funny video due to an unexpected "plot twist". I had watched a few other videos like that before. Like the falling waffle for example. And then I saw "apple falling over" and I thought "huh? how would that be possible?".

      I honestly didn't see that coming. I thought maybe the apple would simply be rolling over.

      That Pyramid on the left side... is that @Anduin's?
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      It's Anduin's embassy in my lands, that is correct. He is free to visit any time. I always take care to provide the embassy with cookies and fresh milk. Oh, and of course, I have set up several traps in there, so that no one would intrude uninvited.

      I usually tell Anduin in advance about the latest traps I have added but sometimes I forget, heh...
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Oh, before I forget, everyone else can visit my Castle too, of course. Just tell me in advance of your arrival and I will reserve a spot on the graveyard for you...
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Shandaxx, some of my friends, some Solars and Planetars, about 15 or 20 of them, wish to pay you a visit at your Castle, when I told them about it. Hope you'll be there to welcome them! And oh, they're coming with their mounts, gold and silver dragons! I believe you'll have a great time.....
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Excellent! Just give me some time to power up the Death Shroud surrounding my Castle. It's a magical barrier. Everyone who visits my Castle has to pass it. And then they will fit better in with my underlings and other undead.

      I wouldn't want my guests to feel uncomfortable by standing out too much...
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      It is a nice little embassy. It speaks volumes about our friendship when you need your own diplomatic corps just to converse with each other....

      What's your policy on visiting holy avenger swords?
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      O Shandaxx, how could you forget that Solars and Planetars are immortal beings and immune to Death Magic? You'll have to find some other ways to entertain your guests...

      And, I forgot to tell you that they'll be coming with *special* presents for you... hope you'll like them!

    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Holy weapons are not allowed on my lands!

      Hmm... now I'll have to think about how I'll handle the Solars and Planetars. Anyone got any ideas?
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Yes, I've got an idea. You can be friends with them. That's the best way in any situation!
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      But they're evil! I mean good! I am evil! Other liches will laugh at me when I welcome Solars and Planetars in my lands! THERE, can you hear it! Anduin's already snickering behind my back!
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Why bother what other liches think? They laugh to mock you, but, in reality, they envy your broad-mindedness and friendliness, virtues which most of them don't possess. Realize, that you're far better than them...
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      I... I am? I am better than... Anduin?
    • Rik_Kirtaniya

      You can try to be as good as you can be, and it'll not be long before you can become the best and finest Demilich the world has ever seen.

      Better?

      Most people are better than me. They get better that is... I'm dead and mummified remember?

      So uhm, will you come to the play too?

      Box seats are available for our more magically powerful visitors. Other guests are encouraged to bring their own spell mantles, antimagic bubbles, etc. in case things get interesting. But, of course, it's ALWAYS interesting at Garrick's Playhouse, a Bhaalspawn sponsored house of entertainment.

      Do you have Magic Popcorn available at Garrick's Playhouse?

      Popcorn? That's a Martian specialty... we may provide ANY popcorn...
    • kcwise

      We have a fine selection of delectable refreshments in the lobby. Whatever your tastes, whether otherwordly or underdarkly, you'll find a complete assortment. Except for gummy bears. It seems one of our undead patrons found it difficult to remove the sugary bits from his remaining teeth and decided to fireball the snack bar. Not to worry, repairs were recently completed and new fire protection contingencies were put in place.
  • Just out of innocent curiosity: Is destroying the world an act open to moral interpretation?

      I dunno, as a denizen of this world, my opinion MAY be biased.
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Wait a minute, mlnevese, you have the means to destroy planets? Then why haven't you used them on Venus yet? Seems strange to me.
    • kcwise
      kcwise
      If the world is destroyed in the forest and nobody is left to interpret the moral implications will you still feel guilty?
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      @Anduin If we destroy Venus it will be hell to stabilize the other planets orbits... We had enough of that when we accidentally exploded the planet where the asteroid belt currently is... And shooting down any ship that tries to come out of Venus is way more fun anyway...
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Did you... did you really just call me "Anduin"?
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Well your skulls are very similar... How is it more important than total planetary obliteration?
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      @mlnevese answered my question before I asked it. I am perturbed.

      @Shandaxx destroying the planet is wasteful. Surely you want to control it? Control = Power. Having the means to destroy a planet is only useful if you want to present yourself as a threat...

      ...

      Which your not...

      ...

      mwhahahahaha!

      ...

      No really. How did you read my mind @mlnevese ?

    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Well done, that is exactly what the real Rik Kirtaniya would have done. You learn fast. And now everybody thinks the doppelganger is dead and poses no thread anymore. No one would suspect a doppelganger killing a doppelganger. Mwuahahaha!
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Another Doppelganger! It has taken control of Shandaxx's account! This is not the real Shandaxx!

      Kill this one too! Everyone to arms! ;)
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Yes! Perfect! Now nobody would ever believe that we work together in secret! Mwuahahaha!
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      *Hand on forehead*
      You're mistaken, Doppelganger. I've killed your brother whom you had sent for me... I'm the real person. But I'm sorry for Shandaxx's fate. Poor ol' Demilich!
    • Shandaxx
      Shandaxx
      Yes, yes, exactly. There is no way you could ever be a doppelganger! You MUST be the real Rik Kirtaniya! *wink wink* And since Shandaxx has gone it seems very unlikely that right now he is plotting something...

      So we are all safe. No need to worry. No need to prepare for an infiltration and an eventual hostile takeover. Just relax and let your guard down. :)

      AND STOP CALLING ME MINION!

      First we will destroy his underlings!

      Well, luckily a Holy Avenger sword can't be mimicked by a Doppleganger, and even if they could they can't mimic my powers! So, I'll just stab everyone to see who is, and who is not, evil! Now, now, calm down. I'll only stab you a little bit. Promise. Evil beings will obviously take more damage, thus revealing their true natures. At which point slice n' dice mode will be engaged! Okay, who's first?
