Noobers Dwarven Hammer / D&D co-creator dies at 69
« on: March 04, 2008, 02:00:25 PM »
Quote
Gary Gygax, who co-created the fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons and helped start the role-playing phenomenon, died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva. He was 69.

He had been suffering from health problems for several years, including an abdominal aneurysm, said his wife, Gail Gygax.

Gygax and Dave Arneson developed Dungeons & Dragons in 1974 using medieval characters and mythical creatures. The game known for its oddly shaped dice became a hit, particularly among teenage boys, and eventually was turned into video games, books and movies.

Media Topics / A REALLY powerful shot
« on: January 10, 2006, 02:08:40 AM »

The mistake this guy made was drinking that while still on fire (the drink, I mean) and spilling some on his neck, bottomline that's what burned (couldn't be inside his mouth for there is no oxygen).
Then the guy breathed out (probably screaming) and it (his breath) was with alcoholic vapour and, by stumbling in his neck on fire, a flame came out of his mouth...
So, lesson of the day: if you ever try out a drink on fire WAIT until the flames are out! :D

The following link will present a flash movie about Radioactive Garbage and War.

A film with a clear message, methinks. I advise any viewer NOT to see it in public spaces and/or while eating, because the film contains very strong images!

Media Topics / 40 Things that only happen in the movies.
« on: December 21, 2005, 06:47:00 AM »
1. It is always possible to find a parking spot directly outside or opposite the building you are visiting.

2. When paying for a taxi, don't look at your wallet as you take out a note. Just grab one out at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

3. Television news bulletins usually contain a story that affects you personally at the precise moment it's aired.

4. Creepy music (or satanic chanting) coming from a graveyard should always be closely investigated.

5. Any lock can be picked with a credit card or paperclip in seconds. UNLESS it's the door to a burning building with a child inside.

6. If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps.

7. All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red digital displays so you know exactly when they are going to explode.

8. Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to learn to speak German. Simply speaking English with a German accent will do. Similarly, when they are alone, all German soldiers prefer to speak English to each other.

9. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off. Even while scuba diving.

10. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building in Paris.

11. Any police officer about to retire from the force will more often than not die on their last day (especially if their family have planned a party). (Caveat: Detectives can only solve a case after they have been suspended from duty).

12. Getaway cars never start first go. But all cop cars do. (They will also slide to a dramatic stop in the midst of a crime scene).

13. If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any strange noises wearing their most revealing underwear.

14. On a police stake-out, the action will only ever take place when food is being consumed and scalding hot coffees are perched precariously on the dashboard . . .

15. All grocery shopping involves the purchase of French loaves which will be placed in open brown paper bags (Caveat: when said bags break, only fruit will spill out).

16. Cars never need fuel (unless they're involved in a pursuit).

17. If you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts, your opponents will wait patiently to attack you one by one by dancing around you in a threatening manner until you have defeated their predecessor.

18. If a microphone is turned on it will immediately feedback.

19. Guns are like disposable razors. If you run out of bullets, just throw the gun away. you will always find another one.

20. All single women have a cat.

21. Cars will explode instantly when struck by a single bullet.

22. No matter how savagely a spaceship is attacked, its internal gravity system is never damaged.

23. If being chased through a city you can usually take cover in a passing St Patrick's Day parade - at any time of the year.

24. The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. Nobody will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building undetected.

25. You will survive any battle in any war UNLESS you show someone a picture of your sweetheart back home.

26. Prostitutes always look like Julia Roberts or Jamie Lee Curtis. They have expensive clothes and nice apartments but no pimps. They are friendly with the shopkeepers in their neighbourhood who don't mind at all what the girl does for a living.

27. A single match is usually sufficient to light up a room the size of a football stadium.

28. It is not necessary to say "Hello" or "Goodbye" when beginning a telephone conversation. A disconnected call can always be restored by frantically beating the cradle and saying "Hello? Hello?" repeatedly.

29. One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them all than 20 men firing at once (it's called Stallone's Law).

30. When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in you room will still be visible, just slightly bluish.

31. Plain or even ugly girls can become movie star pretty simply by removing their glasses and rearranging their hair.

32. Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their enemies with complicated devices incorporating fuses, pulleys, deadly gases, lasers and man-eating sharks.

33. All beds have special L-shaped sheets that reach to armpit level on a woman but only up to the waist of the man lying beside her.

34. Anyone can land a 747 as long as there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.

35. During all police investigations it will be necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

36. You can always find a chainsaw when you need one.

37. Most musical instruments (especially wind instruments and accordions) can be played without moving your fingers.

38. In Middle America, all gas station attendants have red handkerchiefs hanging out of their back pockets.

39. All teen house parties have one of every stereotypical subculture present (even people who aren't liked and would never get invited to parties).

40. Trucks use their horns at random (no hang on, that happens in real life too!).

Media Topics / The Best fight you have ever seen on a game!
« on: December 01, 2005, 12:20:13 PM »
Like the title says: the best fight you have ever seen in a computer-game! Without a doubt! It's a crossover of Mortal Kombat Vs Street Fighter and I recommend saving the link. :D  Much better than the fights seen in the movies of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter (series included) IMO. :nod:

http://uploads.ungrounded.net/276000/276650_MKvsSF2.swf

If anybody knows the music from the fight, please tell! I'm still trying to get an email address of Proxicide. :o

EDIT: The title of the thread. :oops:

Noobers Dwarven Hammer / Peaceful God or Destructive God?
« on: October 07, 2005, 09:41:57 AM »
Test of Alignment (not a D&D-like test!)
Make the (rather simple and disappointing (not surprising coming from EA ;) )) test and see whether you are a god of peace or destruction. Players of B&W might enjoy it. :P

I'm a God of Peace (3-2). :o
I wonder if I'll be one when I get my hands on the game. :evil:

Other Games / R.O.S.E. Online
« on: August 21, 2005, 03:15:28 PM »
R.O.S.E. Online
For the members who don't know it yet, It's a Freeware (no torrents needed :D ) MMORPG. I've been playing it throughout sunday and I've got to say: it's somewhat simple, the quests aren't overly puzzling (it's rather easy to understand what you're asked to do), rather limited (but what could we expect since it's freeware), fun to play, and a pure Hack-&-Slash. Diablo fans, here's something different (graphic-wise). :lol:

It can become a bit repetitive, unless the player accepts the cold and hard fact that it's a Multiplayer game, designed and produced to play with other people online. :-D

Still, even if you play solo, the quests can offer the thrill to play the game. To note that I do not find the quests themselves very hard to accomplish because of the AI, but rather because of the human players: when you've got to kill 20 Mother Choropys and collect their seed (whatever that is), it can be a bit difficult to do it, not because of the Monster being very hard to slay, but rather of being the first to hit one. Consider the fact that every area that has monsters, it's bound to have 10-30 players around trying to slay as many as possible. :lol:

Slaying other independent players is not a part of the game, even though it's doable. Whenever someone hits you, just run away and type "F**K OFF, LAMER!!" along with a threat of KS. Not to worry about swearing, the game automatically censors the bad words. War amidst the factions, however, are a different thing. That is supposed to be one of the main topics of the game. Then there's the clans as well. In order to create your own clan in-game, you have to have money (in-game, that is :D ). I haven't yet had the chance to witness a battle of clans or factions, though they do happen.

Every character you create will start as a Visitor and go to Birth Isle. At level 10, you can go and visit Warren, located at the City of Zant. There, you can change your class/job (yeah, weird name for the player' class, "job"...) to another. Only four are available at that level, being the Soldier, Hawker, Muse, and Dealer. Then, at level 70, you can change to a second Job. Think of these as Prestige Classes. :D  The downside is there's not many choices to take, but, on the other hand, you can be a Muse until lvl 100, then change to Hawker and then change to a Raider or a Scout. A player can always alter his character. :)

Another main topic of the game (at least, for me it is), is the ability for every player to be able to build a mech called Castle Gear. Very nifty and cool! :cool:  :D  Or the player can build a Cart. Both are to move around, the Castle Gear is slower but packs quite a punch and the Cart is the opposite. To build them, however, will take quite the time and research.
The game runs fast and doesn't consume your connection like other MMO' games. Lag will be the main, and very well maybe the only thing, to create breaks during the game.

I'll take the chance to warn the players to buy things from the Dealers only when necessary! Game-wise, a Dealer will try to reap as much money from a player as possible for items which are not worth it. I'll also take this chance to give a hint: don't sell any Jam +5 you might have to the NPC's, you can get 1000000 (yup, that's 6, s-i-x, zeroes! :D ) for a single unit of Jam +5.

I think that's it from me... I'll advise every player that tries this game to round up as many friends as he can to form a party with (the number of members for a party is dependent on the level of the players), it can be much more fun to play it like that. For the feelings of domination and ownage, you know. ;)

For any other member who knows the game better than I do (which shouldn't be too difficult ;) ), feel free to post strategies, tips and hints, or your opinion about the game.

Personally, I recommend playing it. Like all MMORPG's, it's fun! :D

Noobers Dwarven Hammer / What kind of a Mage are you?
« on: June 29, 2005, 04:31:25 PM »
What kind of a Mage are you?
Simple, follow the link and check out what sort of arcane spellcaster you are.
I got:

Can't say I really agree with the outcome... But, then again, I've made this test four or five times over the years, and it was always a different result, so...
...
Out of topic, but I also re-tried the Dragon test, and the result I found to be quite flattering :D :
Quote
As the Hearts of the Pure, your Dragon color is... GOLD

Your Inner Dragon is the most honorable of all. Golds are the third rarest of all the dragons (after Platinum and Chromatic dragons) and have a station in society that reflects their rarity. You are what one might call a Draconic Knight. Golds live by a strict code of chivalry and commitment. Remember Draco? Yep, Gold Dragon. Your appearance is fearsome and all-mighty but you'd never stoop so low as to bring any harm to a human. As a matter of fact, that's strictly contrary to your code of conduct. You're one of only two dragon types that is aligned "Lawful Good" and is proficient in the use of magic and spells. If you're curious, the other is Platinum, the King of the Dragons. Your piety, beauty, wisdom, and inner strength are absolutely without parallel. But of course, being a Gold Dragon isn't all high ethics and codes. You like to fly around scaring things, advise humans in their affairs, and shapeshift. Strike that, you LOVE to shapeshift. And you're great at it. In fact, if you're a Gold on the inside, you might be a Gold on the outside, too - just in human form. Your favorable attributes are honor, chivalry, truth, kindness, gold, mining, protection, wisdom, bravery, and trustworthiness. You might be a bit too trusting of humans at times, but they're just kids compared to you. If anyone threatens your humans or tries to kill you, you could strike back with your breath weapon - Fire. But then, no one's tried anything that stupid in the last couple thousand years. After all, you're about 54 feet long.

54 feet long seems a bit too big for me, but you never know your luck LOL

Yasraena / A quick question
« on: April 23, 2005, 10:31:47 AM »
Hi all. My first post here in this forum, so I'll make this quick. A friend of mine told me about this NPC, so I've downloaded it. Only a small minor problem with it: the FAQ/readme doesn't tell where she can be found! :?
I'd really like to try her out, but it's sort of complicated when you don't know where she actually is :lol:
