As she tuned in to her extrasensory ability, Elune felt her body tense up. An empty, gut-wrenching void enveloped her, disorienting her completely. Her hands sought support with the nearest wall they could find as she stubbornly persisted, trying to gleam something through the emptiness stretching o...

Take Cadus for example, as of right now he's just the medic, so he's trying to make sure everyone is alright... and then he also wants to know what everyone's intentions are in this ruin. He's not even all that busy with the research material at all as of yet, given it hasn't really even been longe...

So, that post was longer, but still just as vague. You can't just say that you're exploring things and expect that to be enough. What, specifically, are you looking at? The ruins, the details, the runes, everything. I'm recording it down for later. Would you mind describing the area or linking to a...

[Cards] Odd behaviour during auction

There seems to be an odd quirk that popped up doing an auction just now. Not sure it has been reported, but just to be sure: Three cards up for sale and three buyers, all the same bid. Seller 1 - Buyer 1 Seller 2 - Buyer 2 Seller 3 - Buyer 3 Next, one buyer places the same bid two times: NULL - Buye...

Completely preoccupied by the strange phenomenon that was blocking her magic, Elune didn't even notice Cadus reaching for her shoulder as he suspended a blob of water in air. Mesmerized by the foggy stone shape in front of her, she had approached it and placed her hand on it to discern anything that...

I checked my post thinking I had messed up, but I guess you misread. I did say that Hugh went to the left room. So, the way it is now, there are eleven rooms in this hallway. Before the turn, there are three on the left and two on the right. Hugh explored the first room on the left, and Samantha ex...

Aw poop. That's a bit of roundabout way of finding your card, but nice to know. Haven't bothered exploring the API all too much :) I also did not see the dbid in the daily dump. If it was, you could check the boneyard for when the nation died, then get a historical daily dump of the day before, the...

Some facets of masculinity are totally a problem, and in my eyes denouncing the entirety of masculinity does not make you "moderate". But that's just me. Everything is flawed, everything is falsifiable. Stating masculinity is not (part of) the problem would be a foregone conclusion to mak...

No need for sorry's, it's an important topic for you, I get it. I don't see the advert as the problem here. It's the behavior from all sides, and no advert could make the impact as the mere existence of an extreme movements on all sides. It's cringy and probably annoying to some. I get that being r...

It's far too strong from my perspective, and I don't see it bringing a lot of advantages. There's a lot of reactionary antagonism going on, which I don't see as very useful. If anything, it just reinforces the rising prevalence of misandry by "proving their point" that men are X, Y, Z. &q...

Making wild comparisons is not discourse, it's just fishing for gotchas. The video was shit, yes, but the response is over-exaggerated. The response is due to an increasing climate of misandry and feminist dogmatism being pushed. It's a reaction to incrementalism that we're well aware of by this po...

If you get your knickers in a twist over this, it reveals quite a lot. Playing the victim is easy, innit. You know, it reveals a ton about you that you'd try and limit the discourse with what is essentially a mass ad hominem. Very disingenuous. Making wild comparisons is not discourse, it's just fi...

I don't think you'd get the point I would want to make while you're frothing at the mouth at anyone that doesn't consider this video North Korea made manifest as digital media.
