I'm making a card game: card suggestions? 13 Table-Top Gaming 2/14/15 12:37pm

Fair enough. Just going off the idea of various fighting games, and not knowing the engine, it would also help to know a fair bit about fighting game mechanics. Then try adapting a mechanic into a card using your engine. For example: Combo Breaker (KI): Play on Rival's turn, when Rival has played a combo of 3+ hits. Rival must play a card face down; you guess the direction (high or low.) I ...

You have a confusing run-on sentence there, so correct me if I'm about to object to something you're not saying. You seem to be saying that theocratic governments inherently have the right to impose themselves against contrary opinion, due to "drawing authority" from a deity; whereas secular governments must be required to demonstrate (including an appeal to something outside itself) that it ...

What might help you is to play some of the games you're hoping to compete with, and see what sort of cards and combos are available. Pay attention to what works and what's broken, then think about how you can emulate the good without ripping it off (a fine line to be sure,) or how to fix what you think is bad. Other than that, to come up with ideas in a vacuum... yeah. We don't even know if y ...

I think I have a couple BESM 2e books lying around. Do you happen to have examples of characters that you've converted? OCs, canon characters, vehicles, etc.

First, when I say particular, I mean as opposed to those who are equally convinced that their own, different moral code is equally ingrained (and opposition to it equally unexcused.) More critically, your answer to my question is simply yes, you do believe that you should use (more properly establish) the goverment to impose your moral code. I see your two bolded statements as mutually exc ...

Is it part of your beliefs that you should use the government to impose your particular moral code on everyone? That is a truth with modifications. It all depends on what you mean when you say discrimination. In America, it generally takes the form of not allowing the Christian majority to dominate the public forum - nor to allow it to wield government power as modern Christianity would. ...

Pre-Judaic Yahwism and Islam both spread their religions through military conquest and a "convert or be considered inferior" attitude. I think that qualifies as being pushy and not taking no for an answer. If we look outside of the Abrahamic religions (hard to do in the West, I know) at the histories of other world religions, you'll find precious few that have ever been joined to political p ...

Two beams is canon: https://twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/503306866831929346 Basically, for any Cantrip spell, level-based effects (damage, number of beams, etc) are off your character level (in this case, 6.)

Not at all; he can expand and revise his position all he wants, and I'll consider those as I encounter them. I'm just not all that interested in asking any questions of him, since creationism / evolution discussion isn't particularly high on my interest list currently. :3nod:

There's a short list of sentient beings in this or any world that I'd be willing to contact via phone. Kent Hovind is not on that list, for the simple and exclusive reason that he is not family or friend. Besides, his positions are readily available in a form that can be considered and investigated, and gone back into and re-considered.

I'm not referring to those, actually - but, for example, this list of should-be-tossed arguments compiled from creationist websites. While the list is not a critique of Hovind, many of those arguments have been used and defended by Hovind. (This link is AiG's response to Hovind's defence.)

First problem: the inability to divine the future accurately is not relevant to whether we can read evidence of the past. and your atheist priests think they know what happened billions of years ago? We can't even figure out an accurate retelling of history within the range of a few thousand years, or how about something much closer, like Columbus? But we know what happened billions of years ...

Except for one small detail: most nascent settlement-based civilisations started near rivers, and relied on flood cycles for agriculture. Occasionally, the annual flood is severe. It's not that big a leap to conceive of an Epic Flood as a sort of apocalypse that happened in the past, with contemporary severe floods being a reminder of that level of divine wrath. So coincidence is not out of t ...

The Christians had the *word* fish (ichthys) as an acronym referring to Jesus. This allowed them to use the fish symbol to identify each other; and anyone seeking to persecute them wouldn't be able to tell the difference between it being used as a Christian symbol or a pagan symbol. That's the useful coincidence. And as for what you're claiming, it has to do with how Christianity tended t ...

To be fair: -Those pagan traditions that you are ascribing to Christmas are elements of Hallmark Christmas, not of any celebrations of the nativity (which actually wasn't typically celebrated by the early church, due to the major doctrinal emphasis on its hero's *death* as the climactic moment.) -Whatever traditions pagan Eostur-monath might have had, only the name Easter remains; but this ...
