Also last night I saw someone walking around in a 'Welcome to Nightvale" shirt. I High-fived him.

LoA

Why split the difference and have them go hand in hand?
Judgement call: squamous posthuman Louis XIV or devil-worshipping Paris Commune?
I think that depends on whether or not you're interested in anything else. The label's not worth worrying about, though.

LoA

Dumb queston: Would developing an interest in Japanese horror movies make me an Otaku in the American sense of the word?
Nice reddit, Hoers.
Also depends on what you're learning it for. You might find that you're better off using a particular set of rules from it as houserules for a game you already know, if you don't have anyone else who knows/wants to learn it. There's also a lot to take in to learn it entirely, so deciding why specifically you want to learn it is key, too. I know I've always been interested, but probably couldn't get a group together.
Depends on how much time and energy you have! Personally I would say no.
Hey folks, just saw this KS and thought you all might be interested.  No relation to me, but looked cool: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/howardtayler/deluxe-rpg-handbrain-screen?ref=card

Is GURPS worth the time and energy to learn?
Speaking of, need a name for a language group: how does "Yldic" sound?
She lives. I'm currently working on a reverse urban fantasy setting not totally unlike yours.
Fixed. It's /url not url/.

LoA

Sorry. Sparkletwist could you fix that please?

Hey Rhamnousia, I found some swank art for Transhuman Trailer Trash. Speaking of which how is that going?
Google is not your friend. It is the Pervy Abyss, staring lovingly back.
Holy shit anthro trains arethe gateway drug to all fetishes I wish I never knew existed. Thanks, Google!

LoA

You did... Forgive me master.
I did warn you about the trains.

LoA

I didn't think that Anthro-train was an actual thing. Then I googled it... Why?
You're my hero Rhamnousia.
A hillbilly who doesn't support national socialism, apparently.

LoA

I am mercifally detached from anything resembling radical leftist culture. Can you explain what a "Shillbilly" is?
I am officially what the white power kids call a "shillbilly"

LoA

Prove me wrong, but I'm liking this blog so far.

LoA

So is the Utopian one. But I thought he could've done better with the Urban Fantasy video.
The post-apocalyptic video is particularly appropriate
Necromancy was used as a synonym for black magic due to conflation with "negromancy" which literally means black magic. If you want to talk about this more, a thread wouldn't hurt.
In D&D I'd say death magic only because plenty of spells affect bodies (like a lot of Transmutation or Abjuration spells for example); in real history it was often used as a synonym for any and all "black magic."

LoA

Let's say DnD compared to the real world.
Depends if we're talking about D&D, some other system of magic, or the real world.

LoA

I have a serious question. Does necromancy pertain to death magic exclusively, or is all magic that involves the body "Necromancy"?

LoA

For the record, I came up with my Clockpunk Rats before I found out about the Skaven... It's impossible to be original.
Thanks!
That's such a Steerpike thesis. Congrats!
(In reply to LoA)
My thesis was about weird fiction, the paradoxical aesthetics of disgust, and metaphysics.
Uber-congratulations, Steerpike! Or should I say Dr. Steerpike?
Way to go, SP!
Congrats!

LoA

What was your thesis about?
Congratulations!
Shameless bragging: I successfully defended my PhD today.
Tell me more (perhaps in a thread, lest we tempt the combined wrath of sparkling horses!)
supplements*
Guys, Veins of the Earth is really, really good. One of the best roleplaying supplement I've ever seen.
That map needs a thread. I must know what's going on because I'm in love with that map.
