The red text at the top made me laugh. I bet he has black friends who told him its cool to use the N-word too.
Referring to remarks made by PM last year, suspended Labour veteran says he ‘can’t be anti-Semitic’ because Israel’s leader has ‘said exactly the same thing’

So this is my new PC tower.

Tell me if you can spot the problem I have with it.

A non angled swastikas is a Hindu symbol of luck and prosperity.

So in the background of the Babymetal song 'Gimme Chocolate' there is a giant statue of the Virgin Mary.

My Pendragon PbP has seen its first PK elevated to Baron. This ought to make things interesting in the last few years of the Uther period.

The PKs have been racking up some serious heroics. They have saved the lives of their Earl and Prince Madoc and they also captured King Octa. 

They then avenged the death of Madoc and the death of one of Ulfius's sons. The RNG really likes them so far. ^^

Does anyone have any ways to make leading knights in battle more dependent on the PK's Battle skill once the actual fighting starts while still relying on their weapon skills?

If I use the 5.1 core approach then all that matters is the leader's Battle while if I use the Book of Battle method then weapon skills are all that matter.

I want both to matter but everything I've tried is super complicated. Anyone have success with this?

I kinda want to use Basic D&D (or a clone) to run a Castlevania game. I've used D&D to do this before a bunch of times but that's been from 3e forward. Naturally I want to include all the shenanigans such as hearts dropping from candles, pot roasts restoring HP, etc.

The dagger would be a regular thrown weapon. Albeit with heart-powered ammo and its silvered. Either an attack roll or save vs Death Ray or Wand. 
Holy water could be either the classic hit and burn in a pillar or the one that hits and then travels a short line. Save vs Breath Weapon.
I think Boomerang as a line attack works. Save vs Staff.
For the Axe the 3-D games usually have it sweeping out in a fan around you so a blast line Burning Hands fits. Save vs Wand.

I find I have to come up with a lot of prophecies and divinations in Pendragon lately. 

This is the most recent:

_Past one turn of the moon for each of the Names of God,
The Red Wolf stalked the Lord of the Gentle River.
And with his straw-coated, heathen hounds,
Did steal from him three golden goats._

You need to know seven things for that to make  much sense so I wonder how long it will take.

Remember when there were no female heroes in Star Wars and Luke, Han and Chewy all went out in a blaze of glory trying to escape the Death Star detention level?

Can anyone recommend a SSDI lawyer near Boston, MA. Preferably one on the South Shore?

My father got hit by a car last fall and now that he's out of the hospital he can't actually work due to his limited mobility (he's a flooring mechanic by trade).

A place to start if you don't garner any recommendations.

Any chance that any knows someone who can help me get direct access to satellite data on the cosmic microwave background radiation? 

My thesis is about the direction dipole anisotropy. I've been pouring over papers and dataset already but I could really use a pointer from someone who knows were to dig it up.

Planck data is best but I won't turn down others. ^^

While it looks nothing like a Western unicorn it does look a good bit like a Kirin. Well like some depictions of one since not all of them have a central horn.
For decades, scientists have estimated that the Siberian unicorn - a long-extinct species of mammal that looked more like a rhino than a horse - died out some 350,000 years ago , but a beautifully preserved skull found in Kazakhstan has completely...

The 29tya timeline is what got me about it. 350tya is before our species in its current form but 29 is recent history.

The super upbeat voice of the narrator really makes Kitchen Nightmare's for me.
