  1. I love you as the wind loves its own sweet sound. And as our friendly Earth loves to spin around. I love you as the moon loves each shining star. I love all that you will be and everything you are.

    Music

    Been on a huge Shawn Lane kick lately. Perhaps the greatest fusion jazz guitarist to have ever lived: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Yf5eNVik_E http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkLSoXSQcYQ
  4. Some know but most do not that my wife and I recently had our first child, a wonderful little boy. Before he was born we had this poem engraved, along with his name, on a wooden plaque which now hangs on the wall of his room. I came to find out shortly thereafter that my father also dedicated the poem to me before I was born. Not only is it a wonderful piece, it holds great meaning for me personally. So, I've chosen to revive this thread by posting "If" by Rudyard Kipling [quote]If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust your

  6. So mysterious is your world,

    Concealed beyond the stars

    Far away from the earth,

    It flows one with time and dark as the night

    Million shapes and colours

    Are storming inside your mind

    Creating endless dimensions

    Forming universes without walls

    Made me think of Wall of the Walled and your lovely creation, MagicDuel. Lyrics are from Wintersun's St...

  8. [quote name='Atrumist' timestamp='1289337070' post='71773'] So you are against about how is she called in this situation, or you are against with how or why is she accused of? False or ambiguously? [/quote] The actions of a king or a leader should never be, and are never, observed at face value. The fact that Pample may or may not have been plotting treason is absolutely important. However, the related facts aren't open for discussion and neither will they be determined within this thread. What we can glean from it, however, is a sense of Jester's capacity for diplomacy and his abilities
  9. Keith and Pample are no strangers, Jester. Surely you know this. I don't doubt that your accusations are true, but surely she's owed more respect for her cunning than you seem willing to acknowledge. I would be unsurprised if tyranny had been the ploy all along. In fact, I seem to recall overhearing Pample and yourself openly discussing plans to overthrow elected royalty on the very eve of the first elections. Your alliance with her seems to show only your lack of foresight...and hindsight as the case may be.

  11. [quote name='awiiya' timestamp='1288380596' post='71155'] Something I noticed - the majority of people that have posted are intuitive and feeling. Anybody want to analyze why? Awi [/quote] Well, the intricacies of the game are not overtly accessible, and require a great deal of intuition in order to discover and appreciate. I can certainly see where that comes from. As for the feeling portion, a large portion of the gameplay is based on the community. It's about dealing with other players and relating to various story lines. This requires sympathy and empathy while not necessarily de

  14. [quote name='awiiya' date='30 March 2010 - 05:39 PM' timestamp='1269985150' post='57191'] I think a better question than "who built the wall" (which gets quickly into the trap of Lore) is "why is it built?" or "what does it represent?" Awi [/quote] I'm not ranting at you, Awiiya, and perhaps I've not paid enough attention to the debates here - but I don't understand the aversion to discussions of Lore. It adds depth and fosters a sense of intrigue in the realm. People are going to speculate and infer conclusions regardless, so you may as well allow them to get other players involved as
  15. Just picked up hardbound copies of Stephen Lawhead's "Dragon King Trilogy". I had read them in middle school and recently had a sudden revelation that I loved them and need to read them again. I'm three quarters of the way through the first book, "In the Hall of the Dragon King" and it's even more fantastic than I remembered.
  16. It could be unrelated to the wall's construction, but note the statue that rests at the Howling Gate. That figure appears elsewhere...
  17. [quote name='Kamisha' date='24 March 2010 - 04:08 PM' timestamp='1269461328' post='56855'] Well actually CRT (crystal ray tube) monitors still do have pixels the pixels are activated by the electrons emitted by a cathode hitting the screen on different pixels on the screen which are activated by the kinetic energy of the electron. [/quote] Just to be pedantic...It's cathode ray tube. And those electrons are fired by an electron gun which "activate" phosphors and not pixels. It's impossible for a CRT to have "dead pixels" in the same convention that the language is used to define nonfunct
  18. [quote name='Fenrir Greycloth' date='23 March 2010 - 04:51 PM' timestamp='1269377508' post='56801'] Electricity is still running through your monitor, and the pixels are constantly being surged with currents. [/quote] It sounds like the monitor is a CRT, in which case there would be no "pixels". Also, leaving electronics powered on is generally considered to be fine as they experience substantially less wear and tear than mechanical components, such as a motor. In fact, it may actually prolong the life because electronic devices tend to generate heat. Powering them off allows them to co
  19. I still feel that we're making some assumptions here, which is generally a no-no in logical debate. Presuppositions should be declared and accepted by all parties before they are considered as valid. [quote name='Kafuuka' date='01 March 2010 - 11:22 AM' timestamp='1267460564' post='55573'] [i]1. A is "winning" because B cannot counteract said point whether it being perfectly valid, or just something that is beyond B's understanding/knowledge.[/i] Exactly.[/quote] We're assuming that since B did not answer that he could not answer. Perhaps the argument didn't warrant a response. For ins
  20. I've never studied formal debate, but I don't believe you can determine who is winning simply by the number of arguments supporting a particular side. We're missing too much information, as you've said nothing about the logical soundness and validity of the statements being made. For instance, it's entirely possible that any number of the arguments contain logical fallacies. I believe that we would need more detail as to the logic being applied.

[quote name='Indyra' date='21 February 2010 - 03:15 AM' timestamp='1266740105' post='54877'] Did anyone ever considered that this type of contest is a big disadvantage for the players who aren't native speakers of English ? i bet that many of us wright beautiful poems that when translated into English loose their charm...i wonder what to do ...post mine in in my native language ? but then again ...how could you judge it ?

[quote name='Orlando Gardiner' date='19 February 2010 - 08:19 AM' timestamp='1266585596' post='54761'] GGG is unlikely to dissapear. trough three main reasons: - it almost the only place (except for sanctuaries) to find people without being ripped, almost the most sociable place in whole md.[/quote] If those players were dispersed, they would find other places to gather, and perhaps places more conducive to constructive game play.

  24. [quote name='Jester' date='18 February 2010 - 03:52 PM' timestamp='1266526329' post='54699'] I said people cannot REVIVE MD, do you guys read the posts you quote? Revive implies bringing the dead back to life. Revitalize implies restore strength. The people in MD can revitalize MD, and it is important. Something as simple as helping a new player or as complex as the Tainted scenario with Granos and Ailith help out the community. Do they REVIVE it? No. But they make MD more fun, which is what is important. [/quote] Since it appears as this entire argument is merely over semantics, just so th

[quote name='Jester' date='18 February 2010 - 02:18 PM' timestamp='1266520726' post='54689'] I would expect more wisdom from an EX-Sentinel, but this would be better discussed in another thread. [/quote] If that's a threat - spare me. If it were honesty then have me removed and save me the trouble. As of Server time: Feb 18 21:28 I still have my horns, though I possess little desire to employ my skills under one such as yourself. Create a thread if you feel inclined, and I'll be happy to join you there though you may not be.
