Having a song to bind muscle memory to a higher speed is not a bad idea.

For modern or Cyberpunk games et all it is often hard to keep up the fear of state that would keep PCs and npcs inside the lines of the law.

We all have our perceptions on how far we can go and ‘get away with it’ and depending on the setting this might differ wildly, but one thing is for sure in both these settings computers will be present both as gaping security holes and as great boons both for PCs and organizations of all kinds.

Sometimes the players will be the one under survelliance, sometimes they might be what we jokingly call ‘offensive security experts’ of some kind.

If you want to actually induce paranoia to the game or get the survelliance state driven home hard to the players consider this :
Amnesty International has released a new tool called Detekt, it is in many ways a scary program, not Detekt itself, but the fact that this program might be needed in modern society.

Have a player’s computer indicate surveliance then hand them Amnesty’s list of things to do if you detect survelliance and you have a session right there...

Other good sources is the white hat hacking sites, not for the tutorials on hacking but as a guide to what actually can be done with modern tech and as an extrapolation what might be done with future tech.

The term "white hat" in Internet slang refers to an ethical computer hacker, or a computer security expert, who specializes in penetration testing and in other testing methodologies to ensure the security of an organization's information systems. Ethical hacking is a term coined by IBM meant to ...

Or you just check out Australia's proposed datas retention laws: government is insisting that all carriers keep two years' worth of metadata, but won't yet confirm what that actually is: though we do know it includes all IP addresses, incoming and outbound coms, data traffic sizes, location of communications, etc... No warrant needed to accessed the data. Confusion on which government agencies and who within those agencies may access the data. No. Really. I'm not making this up. This scares me, and I live in a country where deadly poisonous snakes attack us in our offices! (Also not made up.) 
No wonder I'm basing a character in a new game we are developing on the current Prime Minister. :-)

Ars Magica ruleset :

50 little fiddly fields updated with new code to make them doubleclickable to expediate both lab-work and spontaneous casting.

Turns out that to be able to pull the description contents to the scrips you need to actually have a <description>Description here</description> set of tags instead of the older and deprecheated <description text="Description Here" /> tag.

Spell fields updated to be collapsible to ease searching through for the right one.

Some small popup info fields to make using the charactersheet easier. Might decide to pre-populate the skill-list with some basic skills everyone would have in the next release, basic code is now present for this.

So all in all version 1.9.1.4 will be out sometime this afternoon.

What I'd really like to see when you test knives if cutting performance on tomatoes and fish since both tends to show really well when a knife isn't doing too well. Aside from that I have been delving the backlog and find you both informative and fun to watch. :) Good job.

It is with great shame I look at the current events here in Sweden. There has been some rather serious confrontations between neo-nazis celebrating the 75th year aniversary of the Kristallnacht.

Worse, media ends up reporting about it and screws up the facts so badly that I want to scream.

They reported that "in the original Kristallnacht right-wing elements in then Nazi Germany destroyed Jewish business establishments...."

* 7500 Jewish businesses isn't a few.
* 1400 burned Synagogues are apparently not enough to get mentioned.
* Nor is the 1500 dead.
* Or even some 30 000 Jewish men arrested and sent to concentration camps.
* ... right-wing? Nazi is German and stems from Nationalsozialist or National-Socialist.

And lead to the widespread murder of 6,000,000 or so members of my family. I do not hold you to blame. I am a bit ambivalent as to reporting on such issues. On one hand we should never forget the atrocities man will commit against man, nor what the outcome of some ideas are when practiced. At the same time, when the true facts and numbers are reported, without the historical repercussions, groups like the neo-nazis romanticize it and draw strength from what they see as a success.

After a lot of trial and even more errors... I have a working wild-die. Next is to set up the character-sheet so pages can be turned on and off depending on what setting you play.

Or even exchanged if you run houserules.

With the risk of starting a small explosive war...

Which should I invest in? Elite Dangerous or Star Citizen?

Sorry Ober, I have no dog in this fight. All other things being similar, ED is the 4th game in its line, but Star Citizen has Chris Roberts behind it. So maturity vs some romantic remembrances of 20+ year old games.

In it, she talked about the inequality women face every day, everywhere in the world. She related her own personal experience (being sexualized at a young age, having male friends who couldn’t...

I suppose I'd be egalitarian. grins "I don't care if you are male, female, bisexual, gay, black, white yellow or red, rich or poor. I reserve the right to hate you by your own merits or lack thereof."

Going at things the hardcore mathematical model... Does anyone know how to actually calculate penetration of projectiles against armour?

Kinetic energy is easy enough at KE = (mv^2)/2 but when it then comes down to Joules needed to defeat armour I seem unable to come up with a working formula.

Even a ballpark figure would be a nice thing to have, certainly much easier than actually reading through a lot of WW2 reports on various types of ammo and/or going over weapon and pistols sorting hype from fact and fiction.

Hmmm... I think I actually have an old copy laying about. I bought up a whole lot of old stuff when one of my GM's died and never uncrated it.
