    That said, I did look into this back in March and confirmed that having access to everything is not the same thing as being told everything immediately. Therefore "You didn't ask" is technically a valid way of keeping something from the president... Until of course they do ask, and I really can't believe that no CofD-US president since Lincoln has ever asked whether there are any secret government ghostbusters.

      I mean, I'd withhold everything from Trump on account of his Russian shenanigans based on that premise...

        They won't be getting rid of the Ashwood Abbey right? I actually find it cool one group is in it for fun. Also as some have said, I find it more realistic only a noticeable minority would be crazy hedonist (not saying the majority aren't though, just not on the stereotype level)

          The notion was making them exclusively an antagonistic faction. Again, with things like rules to play Slashers and Seers of the Throne, I don't see how that'd prevent playing them.

            Well is it likely they become an antagonist faction? That would be really freaking lame, because the Ashwood abbey are meant to be the crazy thrill seeking rich kids with a surprising knowledge on the societies of the monsters like vampires. And they don't kill humans

              Using lame to mean stupid is the same as using the R word to mean stupid, just targeted at people who are physically disabled instead of mentally disabled. Please don't use that word.

                I can't say lame? Well what do I say then, just summing up how I feel about it


                Can I still say stupid? I don't want to be banned for something I didn't realise was not ok on the forums

                  "Ridiculous" would work equally well in that sentence.

                    I'm no mod, so I'm not saying that you can't, but I am politely asking you not to. If you mean stupid or dumb, say stupid or dumb. It is much better than loading words meant to describe disabilities with a connotation of worthlessness.

                    (And for context, I have learning disabilities and teach students with both physical and mental disabilities. There's a reason I don't like these words)‚Äč

                    I agree. That would be a much better word. /EDIT

                    Back on topic now.

                    You might want to read this post and this thread for some context around the way Ashwood is being handled.

                        So 'dumb' is better? You sure about that?

                            I think the most accurate word here would be "disappointing". But meant in a more universal, than personal manner.
