I'm planning on an anglo-saxon persona to go with my family's ancestral ties to Northumbria (Modern Yorkshire)

As for the Series, I like it so far; there are very few Historical Dramas I will watch- loved Rome on HBOthats what I saw it as too. a Drama miniseries. Not Documentary, not Factual, just a modern retelling of the *story* of the Vikings.
So the world could possibly end? Okay, I'll have me another drink then.Eh, I'll bet on the Sun getting swollen and turning us to a charred cinder before it swallow up Earth.
On a more serious note I'm glad no one was killed by the Meteor -- if that had struck the ground....An air based explosion is far more destructive than a ground impact explosion. Tunguska was an air-based explosion and you know how devastating it was. If it only blew up from impact, the destruction area would had been far smaller but of course it would left a crater behind.
(Well, the new "Die Hard" movie is set in Russia, so it's an easy thought....)
It doesn't have wings, therefore it isn't safe.I have that especially when the things I am on are "swaying". Of course for some reason that only apply to man made stuff and not the trees I like to climb on. I hate working on the platform lifted up by a forklift. That thing sways.
I'm fine with heights in aircraft, but when it comes to buildings, natural terrain, etc then my idea of an acceptable and reasonable height is about one foot - maybe two feet if I'm feeling particularly adventurous that day.
I was doing dailies on valentine's day and ended up with one i wish I'd taken a screen shot of.You didn't say what the tank was? Only that it was a scout?
I was in tier 7-10 match as a a scout defending on erlenberg and I ended the round with 6633 xp (due to the x3), 171k credits, Sniper, Top Gun and a few other metals.
I really love that little tank.
Dark Sun had cannibal halflings.If they ate each other then yes that's cannibal. If they ate other sentient humanoids....well that's just being an extreme carnivore.
Go to McDonaldsI dip my fries into ice cream. Been ages since I did that.
Order Fries and Chicken Nuggets
And one Strawberry Milkshake.
Dip Fries and Nuggets into Milkshake and eat.
So basically if I encountered Lloth in D&D, it is the same Lloth from FR?D&D had one *generic* setting called Grayhawk for 3.0/3.5 and specific settings that have their own campaign books describing said worlds.
According to what I've seen this one came in from a totally different direction and off the ecliptic of the system. Sucker punch when nobody was looking that way.If not for the matter of mere minutes or degree, Tunguska event would have became Obliteration of St. Petersburg. We probably would had refer to it instead of the Hiroshima event for very powerful explosions/order of destruction force scale.
That said it was a fairly big one, a couple hundred kilotons and Russia is rather lucky that it blew up still at about 30km altitude. Cause if it had been on a steeper angle it would have burst closer and done damage more on par with Tunguska.
Well I want to paint the Stug as a Hollander, but the GR may be a bit much.Isn't there an oldtech design with an AC/10 in the torso or such? Let us keep it in mind that the High School league use World War 2 tech and designs while the College or Pro league use the most recent tech/design.
That was more of a 'What if St. Gloriana was a school in Battletech' sort of question, honestly. Ditto the rest of the show's schools.So the GOOD question is which 'Mech would better represent the spirit of each tank the St. Gloriana used.
Anyone else think that we're lucky this didn't happen during the Cold War?I was thinking just that.
No, the Davies love their Guns/Cannons too much for that......6D is a davion varaint of Warhammer you know? They're the ones who invented that "pure energy boat" variant.
I'd heard about that, though apparently most were minor cuts. I'm hoping the truly serious injuries stayed to a minimum.Updated: "Close to 1,000 people were reported injured, but only three seriously enough to be hospitalized"
Why can't the power plant be part of the station's internal structure?You also forgot that the heat sinks in the large crafts/structure tend to stand in for the "power" system. So they could be considered a part of the powerplant if not in entirety.
Actually, it's that standard weapons can't be used as ortillery. Certain standard weapons could reach out and poke at extreme range (the ERLL and AC/2s, definitely, I forget what else.)And do you know how many hexes the Extreme Range for standard weapons cover? Vs. the Extreme Range for Capital weapons.
70 PPCs in one bay used to be legit, at least in BattleSpace - WarShip bay sizes were capped at 70 fire factors regardless of weight. Your PPC bay would simply weigh 1190t, not counting fire controls; a Clan LPL bay was even more fun, at 1120t.Except there's one factor between standard and capital weaponry; range.
MUCH better than two NL-35s.
Did anyone catch this entry by Herb in the errata for the Monitors?http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,26137.msg600073.html#msg600073 here you go
Fan from my first play through of the Rome Total War demo and have bought almost every game since then.Try the XGM mod for Rome Total War. It give the factions more diversity in units and buildings, and more balance. It's not as extreme as Europa Barbarorum for realism and factions though. So to me it strike a very good balance between playability and realism.
Rome II is looking great and I am definitely excited about it.
Rome Total War I still play from time to time(Carthage is my preferred faction) while Medieval II has a great mod called War of the Ring installed on it that is a lord of the rings mod. Whole new map and orc, dwarf and elve factions along with humans as well.
Never really got into Shogun or Empire but I do like the AI improvements in Shogun.
