I don't approve of the new T.A.R.D.I.S. design, but other than that the 2nd Episode of Series 11 was good. 7/10

      It was quite primitive:) Overall I liked the episode.

      I enjoy the episodes so far. The Doctor is great and the companions are great too, but the tone shift will take a lot of getting used to and the designs for the T.A.R.D.I.S. and Sonic Screwdriver just don't sit well with me. I do however like how the new Sonic Screwdriver was made. Overall 8/10 so far. Looking forward to the rest of the season.
  • Well my Top 10 dungeons list is up! I may do more Top 10's in the future, but to avoid spam it will be a while before I do so.

      Does anyone like the idea of Top 10 Background Characters?
    • ThacoBell

      What do you mean by background characters?
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      One-Off Characters that serve little to no bearing on the storyline. They are minor sidequest characters like Melicamp at best and borderline obscure encounters like Portalbendarwinden at worst.

      That could be interesting.
  • I'm thinking about making a Top 10 Dungeons list. What does everyone think? No suggestions because I want to make my own list, but I just want your opinion on the list being made in general.

      Sounds reasonable to me. I'd probably give some higher marks than others when it comes to appearance/design compared to fun/difficulty levels. I wonder if it might be worth having more than one category?
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      I hadn't thought about various categories, just my own personal preference really. But feel free to comment you own Top 10 when I do mine, assuming that I do it.
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      Out of curiosity, what category is it best to put this in?
    • Zaghoul
      Zaghoul
      Sounds like a good one for off-topic, unless it was for 'just' BG 'or' BG2.
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      But if it's ABOUT the games, how is it Off-Topic?
    • Zaghoul
      Zaghoul
      General discussion, that's the ticket (forgot about that one for a moment).

      Top 10 Dungeons? Tomb of Horrors better be on that list. ;)
    • Zaghoul
      Zaghoul
      Heh, I think that's why I suggested Off-Topic as the section first (I know now ZM was thinking BG, sorry ZM), I was thinking of the old PnP modules instead of BG in-game dungeons.
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      Top 10 Dungeons from the Baldur's Gate games. Not in General.
  • Just saw the 1st episode of Series 11 of Doctor Who.

    I approve, great episode, great companions, great Doctor and great ending.

    Welcome, Jodie. You've started off quite nicely 10/10

      Best Dr. Who episode in a long time...
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      Well, Series 10 was a bit underwhelming, it was the best episode since Heaven Sent at least. In my opinion, that was Capaldi's magnum opus.
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Capaldi was a really good Doctor but the story was really bad.
    • LadyRhian
      LadyRhian
      They only got rid of Capaldi because people were complaining about the Doctor being an old man. :P Seriously? The Doctor was an old man for most of his life! William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, John Hurt, The War Doctor, Peter Capaldi... Even Sylvester McCoy was "old", And Matt Smith ended old.

      That being said, I loved Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee, Chris Eccleston (I didn't get to see a lot of Matt Smith or David Tenant, so while I liked both of them, they don't make my list.) I saw Jodi Whittaker last night, and she seemed "Brilliant!", so I liked what I saw.
    • ZaramMaldovar

      Capaldi left of his own accord because he was tired, he wasn't replaced for being old, although he was the oldest person to ever play The Doctor for an extended period of time. In fact, Capaldi was offered a 4th season but he turned it down.
    • ZaramMaldovar
      ZaramMaldovar
      And I know that Hartnell appeared older, but he was actually about the same age as Capaldi, here is the list of The Doctors by age in their first FULL episode (not including special actors like Richard Hurndall, John Hurt and David Bradley)
      From Youngest to Oldest
      13. Matt Smith-28 in "The Eleventh Hour" (2010)
      12. Peter Davison-30 in "Castrovalva" (1982)
      11. David Tennant-34 in "The Christmas Invasion" (2005)
      10. Jodie Whittaker-36 in "The Woman Who Fell to Earth" (2018)
      9. Paul Mcgann-36 in "Doctor Who" (1996)
      8. Tom Baker-40 in "Robot" (1974-1975)
      7. Colin Baker-40 in "The Twin Dilemma" (1984)
      6. Christopher Eccleston-41 in "Rose" (2005)
      5. Slyvester Mccoy-44 in "Time and The Rani" (1987)
      4. Patrick Troughton-46 in "Power of the Daleks" (1966)
      3. Jon Pertwee-50 in "Spearhead from Space" (1970)
      2. William Hartnell-55 in "An Unearthly Child" (1963)
      1. Peter Capaldi-56 in "Deep Breath" (2014)

      Actually switch Colin and Tom I messed up on that one, but other than that the list is accurate.

      I gotta catch up the whole Capaldi Doc first, then I'll check her out. I've gotta admit it will feel a bit strange after seeing him as a man since I started watching in the early seventies, but I am open to anything as long as the sage continues. As mentioned above, it's the story that will make it or break it for me. If that's good, all's good. :) Long live the Doc.

      A Timelord may regenerate as mostly anything... Riversong regenerated as a child once.
    • Zaghoul

      Romana of Tom Baker years pretty much threw away several forms just to pick out the one she liked best (Destiny of the Daleks - short clip of it happening, heh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxnbP0ZV96A ) Baker gives some funny reactions to some of those bodies. I'm not sure if they ever rationalized that right. She didn't die to need the regeneration. It was the switch from Tamm to Ward playing the part that precipitated it and Romana finally took the body of Princess Astra that she liked.

      In the books some Timelords regenerate as aliens or even as hybrid creatures....
    • LadyRhian
      LadyRhian
      Patrick Troughton's Doctor was forced to Regenerate by the Time Lords. He didn't have to- it was part of his sentence, to be imprisoned on the Earth and change his body.
  • All the threads I normally frequent seem strangely dead right now. Is everyone alright?
