Re: GEMP Feature Requests

Is there any way to speed up moving lots of characters around? Some examples of things that take a long time: - embarking a bunch of guys on blizzard 4, moving, and then disembarking - shuttling characters up and down with commander desanne - moving characters around with Cloud City: Upper Plaza Cor...

Re: Star Wars CCG OCS Discussion Thread

Yeah it sounded like there were no pairings so I was wondering what was stopping someone from avoiding playing against anyone good. Also, I'm pretty sure that the Seattle event is the closest physical major tournament to New Zealand (assuming you're still down there), so you're pretty much required ...

Re: The Official Last Jedi Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

Holdo's uncalculated Hyperspace jump Why do you say the jump was uncalculated? Wasn't it the plan all along? No, Holdo's hyperspace attack was improvised once the FO started firing upon the cloaked transports. The original plan was for the evacuated cruiser to continue to draw the FO away from the ...

Re: Support for Shannon McRandle (Mara Jade)

While it is unfortunate that she is going through this, I think that it is important to note that the page says that the money will be used for "uncovered eastern healing techniques".

Re: how does money work

Front loading lump sum is mathematically better than DCA, if you have the intestinal fortitude.
It is better in one aspect (expected value) but worse in another (risk).

Re: religion and morality

You guys seem to be using a really weird definition of the word believe. The standard definition allows you to believe something even if you have really good evidence for it, or even if it is a tautology. In fact, standard doxastic logics (for perfectly rational agents) require the agents to believe...

Re: Vader's Custom TIE Contest finalists posted!

Hmmmm.... very surprised at the results. I definitely like option 4 the best, but primarily for reasons involving putting any pilot BUT Vader on it with ability 4+. It would be pretty ridiculous with even Thrawn. Total deploy 6 for power 5, ITA <5, TWO battle destinies, and can play a third, or lim...

But there are always going to be burger flippers, so if there is no minimum wage, someone is always going to get the short straw. If everyone gets more skills, then you will just have a skilled person flipping burgers.

Re: President Trump

If you want to keep the United States united, I think something is going to have to change. A lot of people here in California are feeling that they give to the country, but that they get nothing back. Why let other people elect your president, and send your tax money to other states, when the rest ...

Re: President Trump

Any pro-lifers that beleive that abortions should be legal when the life of the mother is in jeopardy isn't all that much different than us pro-choicers. There's ALWAYS a risk to the mother during childbirth. The only thing we disagree on is the how much risk we're willing to force on her. The more...

Re: President Trump

also, keep in mind that pro-lifers often claim they would make exceptions for cases of rape and incest. That's a great soundbite, but what does that look like? what does the litigation look like? rape victims who bring their child to term already have to deal with their rapist having parental right...
