  1. My avi looks really sad in this...funny, I never would've imagined it being like that. Awesome. Dhyone, can you confirm the scene, please? Tomorrow I'll end the quest.
  2. So the vets will beg for newbs to recruit crits for them. Power to the people! (the new people) yea, regenerating WI as a % might not be the way
  3. The way it (still) is, the player had to do some efforts to get to some bare minimum values in order to progress. With percentage costs, that effort disappears, so keeping a fixed value apart from percentage would be a way to maintain it - if we consider this approach for new players useful. 'Farming' would be a bit harder with percentage values instead of fixed ones, but vitality is not that hard to regenerate. The (ex) value points were always the problem, though. You could get to -1mil VP from a fight with someone and it would take weeks to get it back to 0. If we had some way to regenerate WI easier, the percentage wouldn't bother us much. Then again, how do you increase world inertia?
  4. Wait, that's 1 month from when the quest started (Dec 24th)! So it means there are only 4 days left 😱
  5. It's an association that is easily made because nobody ever heard of world inertia. I don't think I've ever heard about it, so it's natural to make an association with what I've heard of. Also, double posting is rarely ok.
  6. It should be tomorrow, but I don't want to force you to finish it by then. Even if you participate, the condition wouldn't be met anyway (and I'm not sure I can accept Dhyone's submission unless the scene is being confirmed - it looks like Ravenhold, but who knows?), because 3 is not more than 3. So taking these things into account, I'll do this: I'm further extending the deadline to the 25th of January. That's a month for people who are interesting in doing a little artistic effort.

    I hate propaganda films, they're an insult to my intelligence. Propaganda films are coming from one of the parties involved which pretends to be speaking 'objectively'. Like I can't see you're on one side of the trench. I may choose to fight with you, or pay you taxes, but I should know I'm not allying The Angel of Righteousness, but one of the sides trying to **** up the other side. The thing about ethnic purity or nationalism is that it eliminates the guilt of choosing which one of your 'brothers' goes down. They're all your brothers, and you're told you're supposed to love them equally. Yet as I was saying, we are competing, all living things are. Somebody HAS to go down. That's when we create guidelines and principles that are not respected much, mostly because it takes years of studying to understand them, and it takes everybody's cooperation to uphold them. (these laws choose who goes down and who wins, and eventually crumble) So the merit of nationalism and borders is blissful ignorance and a much more intuitive and irrational way of settling who goes down: the other guy, the different one. I'm pretty much like everyone that has commented, and I've said it in the initial post. But you see, even if you understand people, even if there are no barriers, there will still be winners and losers. There will still be the higher-ups and the rest. We cannot create equality, because equality is something for machines, not for living creatures. My view on this is of someone who would like to believe in a common dream, but sees the impossibility of it. We can continue on this argument (although it's a dead-end for my idea, it's almost 0 support), but I'll give you another:

    Yea, a bit unpopular, I'd agree. I think that seeing the larger picture is something only some have the ability, luxury and desire to do, so I doubt pushing this burden onto the common folk is going to achieve anything. China, for example, did something great when implementing the one-child policy; of course there were major downsides to that, but I think it was the right choice for China (and the world as well). The irony of a 'us vs them' culture is that sometimes it manages to create healthier communities than the 'no barrier' culture; the downside is that sometimes it ends up all life. You're the first to take a 'pro' gate stance. Your arguments sound like those of a Roman governor. Too bad they left those Germanic tribes bribe them over the decades. Edit:
  9. Let's go for that sound logic as for the relationship between heat and vitality, well...isn't heat the manifested energy, vitality the process of transforming potential into heat, and potential that something determining the energy pathways and length of such pathways, found in the blueprint of every being?
  10. Actually, if I think about it...when we say somebody's full of vitality/life, we don't actually refer to potential, do we? We mean that he or she can readily manifest that potential (into action), and does so often, so vitality actually refers to a combination of readiness, effectiveness and experience in manifesting your potential. To confuse things even further, a synonym would be briskness, no?
  11. Yea, well, the items that were created (plushies) were not supposed to be transferrable in any way, to my understanding.
  12. it's not too difficult because VP was never well defined (at least imo) Worldy inertia sounds better, but perhaps a one-word terminology is better? wordly inertia points and vitality points - sort of weird edit: also, I am full of worldly inertia is kinda funny; or 'my worldly inertia is in the red/negative'
  13. It's also the most savage. I like what you did there, but I don't recognize the scene.

    Yea, well, you can't declare war to China if you don't start creating the 'us vs them'. And you need the war because the American empire is falling (all that while you still need immigrants, so you still let them in).
