    Plagiarism

    As you set out in MagicDuel hope your road is a long one, full of adventure, full of discovery. Angry rants, bitter fights or creepy folks - don't be afraid of them: you'll never find things like that one on your way as long as you keep your thoughts raised high, as long as a rare excitement stirs your spirit and your body. Angry rants, bitter fights or creepy folks - you won't encounter them unless you bring them along inside your soul, unless your soul sets them up in front of you. Hope your road is a long one. May there be many summer mornings when, with what pleasure, what joy, you enter scenes you're seeing for the first time; may you stop at Willow's Shop to buy fine things, mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony, sensual perfumes of every kind - as many sensual perfumes as you can; and may you visit many lands to learn and go on learning from their citizens. Keep MagicDuel always in your mind. Arriving there is what you're destined for. But don't hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you're old by the time you reach the pinnacle wealthy with all you've gained on the way, not expecting it to make you rich. MagicDuel gave you the marvelous journey. Without it you wouldn't have set out. It has nothing left to give you now. And if you find it poor, it's not because it fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you'll have understood by then what these Magic Duels mean. (I repeat, this is plagiarism of the worst kind)

    On stupidity

    Only if it comes with a good deal of suffering and the end of your dreams. Else, no way.

    On stupidity

    I'm gonna share something with you because I am getting old and some stuff that I held to be true before just doesn't make sense anymore. I can't find stupid people in my world Yesterday I went to do some house viewing and one of the houses was a nice little setup. The story was about two young lovebirds who bought a house and made the necessary arrangements to live in style there, but some years ago things happened and they decided to leave for UK for good. Now the house is empty, but look how beautiful it looks! Everything's new, the location is great, it's a bargain! Everybody would say 'They were stupid to leave all this'. Regardless, my bullshit radar activated and I need no confirmation to be sure that this was a house bought at half the price they're selling, put in maybe 5k to make it look nice and another 5k to dress it up and expect some huge profit. Hey, there's money to be made in this industry, even if it's dying atm. I chuckled at the bubble bathtub for two people. The marketing is great - it's those young gullible couples who'd bleed their money over it. Stupid? I don't think so, this was all well-planned and executed. Years ago, I was making a trip that involved crossing a border. That usually took about an hour or so, but what was particularly memorable about the trip was that the driver decided to bring three little kittens with him (they were in the back). Sure, kittens look nice in pics, but once they start pissing and shitting in their cage (because of fear, hunger, car-sickness, I don't know), hehehe, the joke's on you. And the driver...was exceedingly happy that day. From the beginning to the end, he kept chuckling and making jokes. I think many of us feel something is wrong when something IS wrong. I didn't know what was wrong, but soon after the trip I had this weird thought in my mind - was he smuggling cocaine (after sniffling some)? Some reader from the US may say 'Well, duh', but in Europe things are a little different. When there's smuggling, everyone's usually on it - not a lot of freelancing around. 'Fucking moron, dumbass, cretin, imbecile' are all adjectives we, the passengers, lovingly attributed to the driver. But was he an idiot for transporting the three kittens (given to him by 'an animal loving friend') or was he deterring policemen (and police dogs) from getting at the back? Stupid? I don't think so, he was laughing his ass off. And I...tried to educate some people around me. I thought 'If I'd explain things to them, they'd get it and we'd all do something good together'. How wrong I was! In thinking people don't know better (a.k.a. 'are stupid'), I was the only idiot of there. One person in my life drove me crazy, until I realized she wasn't dumb, just didn't want to accept the kind of reality I was looking at. I mean I can't pretend I don't see what I see. I suppose we all ignore some aspects of life - we're not invincible - but some people run from reality far and wide. Stupid? Nah, just weak and wanting protection, not the harsh reality and the obliteration of dreams (I'm *this* close to joining SI). In any case, the proverbial fool is harder to spot than the Yeti. There have been more sightings of the Loch Ness monster. Sure, stories are using this trope and comedy inevitably has 'a dumb one'. But if you think someone is stupid, and laugh at him/her, you'd better take a look in the mirror. The one who doesn't understand things is you. (P.S. This is how you kill laughter and create a gloomy world - show people the reality. And... be sure to take away their booze and drugs.)
  5. Yea...but couldn't the artwork be 'whitened' on a side?
  6. ADVENTURE LOG/STORY-MODE MECHANICS (COMBAT? it may overlap with INTERFACE or FEATURES) STAGE END/START FACTIONS/GROUPS (such as the council, or gwi guardians etc) LANDS KINGS/KINGSHIP TOOLS (transfer of tools, official selling of tools etc) TREASURY (for now, the TK) RPCS/ROLES
  7. Ah, since I read that topic beforehand...I would like to review/fix anns under somebody's supervision
  8. I would like to work as a reviewer/tagger under someone's supervision i.e. read anns and tag them according to the tag list
  9. The rewards have been distributed (no WP), unfortunately Demonic God decided to go M.I.A. and so I don't know if he'll (ever) get the prizes. Thank you for participating, I want you to know a veil of mist covered Marind Bell and Ailith, Steno and Demonic God managed to work out a solution under Slotsh's guidance. For now, crisis averted.
  10. Seems to be a very specific and hard-to-track issue, so good luck all I can say is my lvl 2 resource grasans are still named Leaking, Stinky etc and none of my creatures have lost their names.
  11. This topic belongs to many sections, so I chose this one. Do what you must do if I did wrong, mods. The maple sapling at Sanctuary's View, where I'm gonna spend some time, is not getting enough light. You can see the sunlight hits all trees from the right, while the maple is just as dark on both sides. It's great artwork, but it looks out of place because of this. It's precisely because it looks good that I'd like it to get the right light, because a point can be made that the added artwork like chairs or barrels aren't shaded right either.

    Hmm...I couldn't make a meme with ''Cazzi tuoi'', though...

    How do you want this help to happen? I find (this endeavor) amusing, there are also many English idioms that, translated into my language, sound very funny.
