  1. Now, I would not write a post merely to censor your choice of words. That was hardly my intention, read it this way:   To be fair (to DD), (I must clarify) that was not an experience shared by all of the involved (lest someone get the wrong impression).
  2. Within a given field, whenever conflict between two parties arises, their sway is given by their respective influence within the field. The spoils and losses are both likewise reaped in that influence, and inversely proportional to the party's influence in relation to its opponent.   That, I believe, reflects what Mur has stated, though I may be mistaken. That, I assume, in the context of other recent posts.   ---   That, however, is only entirely true in a white room scenario, where only that field and those two parties exist, such that the field cannot expand or lose gro
  3.   To be fair, that was not an experience shared by all of the involved.
  4. Truth is nor the object nor the subject of science. Truth is beyond validation, and hence beyond recognition. Truth is not something our categories of perception can deal with, because it ultimately symbolizes that which always exists beyond our categories of perception.   Truth is what one cannot speak of, and what one cannot speak of, one may as well remain silent as to, where scientific pretension is exclusively concerned. If truth must be spoken of, then no method can be applied, and only statements of faith have any worth.   Theology and philosophy may deal with truth withou
  5. Though I am rather late with this, happy birthday to both of you, Nimrodel and Menhir!   Or rather, I hope you had a great birthday.  :))
  6. I must confess, I was not directly aware of the parallel work on this myself, or I'd have raised the issue on both ends - as is, communication problems probably arose from the further sectioning of the task among the Archivists, as well as what may have been reliance on the Alliance chat  - not that such could have been avoided, in and of itself, as the sectioning was necessary.
  7. Though the thread's locking has rendered the status redundant, this exchange is still open:   http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/15514-wtb-coins-for-credits/
  8. In the interest of being a general cheapskate and freeing poor MaGoHi from the clutches of slavery¹, I offer an exchange of cake - or rather, a piece thereof.   It is a symbolic act of great importance among my people.   Not that I'd expected an outsider to comprehend the sheer importance of this gesture and its deeply rooted significance among our forebearers.   Regardless, I'd hope you wouldn't dare scorn the ancient cultural traditions of my people by accepting a far inferior offer of precious metals or other such menial things from a third party.   We are v
  9. At lest for the next few months, I am available.
  10. With "shouldn't" come the questions: "according to what, and whom, for what?"   Our continued well-being, or sanity, perhaps?   The sane and insane are symptomatic, and the pathology of symptoms is, without variation, symbolic in essence.   The insane is the symbolically degenerated, the brilliant is the symbolically exalted.   Modern cultures are hegemonic enough that we no longer often see truly extreme variations in standards - those elements that might seem outright bizarre or alien to another culture.   But observation of the registers of the bygone inst
  11. Nominee: Zul'Naar.   Nominator: Azkhael.   Reason for nomination: I nominate Zul'Naar in view of the following auction http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/15846-wtsauction-various/, it actually being a covert Christmas giveaway, and attest to having received three aged angiens as a consequence thereof.
  12. On the topic of belated happy birthdays, happy birthday, Sir Blut!
  13. Have yourselves a merry Christmas!

  14. @Mur: are those uninterested in Tribunal citizenship allowed to participate nevertheless?
  15. Though I am woefully late, happy birthday, Krioni!
  16. It might be doable with a restricted group, but not as an universal attempt.   I received humorously inaccurate and wildly divergent results due to passively focusing on the geometric pattern, rather than the colors.
  17. @TheRichMerchant: certain credit purchases which cannot be directly gifted, as well as most of the subscriptions, come with a bonus amount of credits on the side.   Otherwise, you might have donated merely for the sake of donating, but, realizing you could use the accumulated credits as a quest reward, suddenly decide to have them converted.
  18. As long as we judge the possibility of takeovers desirable, and that is the first topic that must be discussed, then it is a matter of arguing over the balance between the offensive and defensive dynamics in those interactions.   Arguing what makes a good leader, on the other hand, is something of a moot discussion, if it is to be had here. The first thing that comes to mind is interpersonal skills, but is dedication not a desirable trait in a leader, and are the best grinders not dedicated to have got there?   Takeovers induce wariness in most, paranoia in some. If you cannot re
  19. Disclaimer: I have not, in any way or fashion, checked the veracity of the data below, it being taken directly from http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/15492-combat-talk/. Should you find any factual mistakes, inform me of such within this thread and this post will be edited accordingly. New suggestions, where pertinent to the topic, will likewise be added.   I - It has been claimed that creature abilities such as Defend and Martyrism/Protect are unable to keep up with their Attack-based counterparts, given the vastly divergent amounts of Power and Attack that can be gained in any g
