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!
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
You and me both mate, you and me both. I'm not joking, that scene almost made me wanna see Grey's anatomy afterwards just because Lucius is in it, hehe..
Also, if I got a penny for every minute I've spent on YT watching educative movies about historial weapons, armor, food, clothes, tools etc etc, I would be rich enough to buy myself a full plate mail +3.
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.
I shouldn't have started this visual novel. It's creeping me out. But I can't stop either...
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
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.
It is infinitely ingenious to indirectly inquire of the intentions of impulsive Illithid Illusionists, who are inclined to impersonate imaginary individuals, in order to initiate intricate intrigue, with the intention of invading into your invaluable intellectual insights.
Sir Stan Sea saw seven speds sitting straight stylishly slurping sloppy sauce staining several shirts, so sir stan sea sold several stained shirts south sudan, seperately selling several sausage stained shirts south sevilla, spain, suspending seven speds selling sloppy sauce south senegal, surprisingly scaring several speds stealing sloppy sauce south Sydney, several speds said sorry, surprisingly sir stan sea said stealing sucks so she slept.
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.
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.
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 ;)
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.
Even though I misunderstood you then, I'm glad you liked the input. I sincerely hope you find those people who can appreciate you and others for who they are, the good they do rather than by the size of their wallet or the number of diplomas on the wall etc.
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.
*It seems my little schemes and plots are coming along nicely.. they will never see what's coming*
Ahem, well good sir, how much are you inclined to pay for the privilege of moving ahead in the standings.. and in what currency? Vegetables, no matter if they are green or whiteish, are not currency by the way.
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.
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, 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.....
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...
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...
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.
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.
@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...
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!
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. :)
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?
