Do not put your tin foil hats on! They are now a danger to your privacy and of those around you!

Edit: Oh yeah, shopping mall's wifi? Kinda sucks. But it's better than no usable internet. Also, the virtual tabletop for cards looks amazing in the Cards Against Humanity video.

Yeah, it's basically Apples to Apples except its funny and fun.

@Essoje That tech is cool but you weren't kidding about the death of our privacy and the tin foil hats. Yeesh.

Merry Christmas everyone.

You know, it's been a couple of years now since we all started gaming together. Amazing how the time flies, eh?

Late Merry Xmas and early Happy New Year to everyone, just in case my internet goes out in flames yet again.

At least it has been somewhat stable for the past few hours, even allowed me to install and update Linux Mint on this machine... at about 1/3 of the speed I've contracted.

I hope you'll come back soon with us. I have need of a servant. Cool

But in all seriousness, happy Xmas to you too.

why is it abbreviated as "Xmas", btw? It's like Sam's Org13 name or something.

I'm glad you asked that, K. So I looked it up and turns out it's got something to do with Latin and Greek. This dates back to the 16th century before the misconception that it is intended to remove the religious connotation from the word.

From wikipedia: The "-mas" part is from the Latin-derived Old English word for Mass,[1] while the "X" comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός which comes into English as "Christ".[2]

That's what I was going to write. I can confirm that Rory is right.

So I just read something hilarious. Here's the link: http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?224679-Shadowrun-4-Give-me-your-zaniest-character-concepts!

What caught my eye was post #7, the first of two stories the post tells about the Shadowrun character in question:

priest:
The party captured an ork who was part of a group sent to kill them; they have him tied to a chair in a safehouse trying to get him to talk, but the guy's a rock. Johnny decides to try his hand: he grabs his shotgun, loaded with beanbag rounds, and fires one at the ork's face from point-blank range. Smashes his nose like Gallagher vs. a watermelon, blood everywhere. Johnny shouts at him, "AND I'M THE FUCKING PRIEST!" Having realized their patience was at an end, the ork sang like Beverly Sills.

Wow, thanks.

As for zany characters, Arch didn't even like my Snow White. And he wasn't even zany.

That's a great thread you found Rory.

Besides the priest anecdote I also loved this elf decker:

Burn Unit:
Then there was Burn Unit. Burn Unit was a Barrens elf decker who'd been set on fire by Humanis thugs. And threw himself into the Snomaquie River. And then crawled to a street doc so he didn't die.

So he's a bit mad. Has a used datajack drilled into his head. Wears a gasmask, heart boxers, and a clear plastic raincoat. And flip-flops. And he rides the buses.

He also didn't have a particularly great deck. But he could sleaze, spoof, and wheedle his way into other terminals like nobody's business.

This totally sounds like something I'd play.

So, 22:40 here, thereabouts. Coming up on January in little over an hour. I hear 2015 will have giant robots or something.

Happy New Year you guys. Smile

While giant robots are awesome I always thought the physics and cost of it all made it impractical for real life use.

I've marathoned all the episodes of Disney's Star Wars Rebels currently out. Lost points when characters actually used "street rat" to refer to Ezra, but other than that it's got me hooked. Y'know I think Ezra is just their persona of Aladdin from the Disney movie 5 years younger give or take. But with a lot more depth.

I agree Rory. They are definitely tapping into that same well of character archetype. What do you think of the Inquisitor so far?

I went to the Pau'an page. He looks prettier than the species originally looked. Maybe just a temporary design choice coming from demographic, considering this is Disney. He's the series' Big Bad, and so far he feels one-dimensional. What I'm more interested in is how Jarrus and Hera hooked up, and Hera's history in particular.

Yeah, I'm hoping we'll get some expanded backgrounds for those characters before season 2+ but we'll see. I mean, it took the Clone Wars a bit to find its legs as well.
