Anti-magic Zone = no cell service
All you need is a Wish.

So my friend and I were talking about this, and he said that mass producing rings of communication would basically be more effective than trying to make cellphones.
Maybe even creatures. Think Den-Den mushi in One Piece
To me it looks REALLY EASY to implement in D&D. Use rituals, magic spells, magic items... really the ways to implement it are numerous.

LoA

So I'm just going to ask a quick question and if starts going somewhere, I'll make a thread. Do you guys think an information superhighway, or some form of communicative networking like we currently have is plausible with DnD magic as it's presented in the game?
One of my favourite blogs, that one.

Dumb Nintendo question: Why haven't they made a crossover of Smash Bros, and Mario Kart. Each character is a kart race, but instead of regular kart items, you each have unique items and attacks. Super Smash Kart if you will.
It's back
Checked at 18:10 ET
The IRC network we use (irc dot otherworlders dot org) is currently down. Not sure when it'll be up again yet

LoA

3:42 sorry

LoA

I'm getting the same problem, and the weather's fine where I'm at. 3:14 MT
Just for context, that last comment was made at 5:30 EST.
I realize that I'm caught in a literal blizzard where I am, but is IRC not working for anyone else? My internet otherwise seems fine.
Yes. I've added a news post.

LoA

Hoers, did you get Admin privileges?
Holy shit, Torment Tides of Numenara actually finally got released.

LoA

Hey everyone. Posted some stuff about my first adventure with my PC in the thread. Please check out!
Congrats!
English Literature.

LoA

Out of curiosity, what's your major?
Woohoo!
*Technically* I don't have my PhD yet but I have submitted to my external examiner and will be defending at the end of April, so very nearly there!
So, I guess congrats are in order, Dr. Steerpike?!

LoA

That one always makes me tear up a little.
Depending on the system, you could always just extrapolate HP until it "works." tongue

Tell that to the China people in Oz the Great and Powerful...
Maybe they have super-strong lacquer. Anyone, who cares if you're broken if you can just glue yourself back together?

LoA

Yeah, they're basically broken either way smile
Step 1: Give them a weapon
Step 2: Hope they hit first

LoA

Mainly, that I can't think of a logical way they would work in combat situations.
Out of curiosity, why can't they work as a race?

LoA

I wish I could make the China people of Oz work as a race. I so want little dolls to be a part of one of my settings.

LoA

Die for the Hive!
Live for the Swarm!
Good call, the Zerg themes would be good ones.
Weird! I was also looking through the zerg and metroid prime soundtracks for inspiration. Thanks for the help Sparkle, SP, and Llum!
Sent you a PM with more suggestions, Weave, though Llum's is definitely good too. Mine are very squelchy.
My players are going inside a giant worm for a very "organic" dungeon crawl. Any ambient music recommendations?

LoA

That is seriously cool.
Man, I wonder if that game is still going.

LoA

So I just found out that the art of Jacob Kowalski is actually from a board game called Scythe, a Post WW1 mecha game. But it's a resource allocation game, that was demanding to be a mecha game, so I don't feel bad for this.
