    I have free Netflix through a family member. I can also watch things on Crave. Just today, there were three titles I looked for that weren't available on these services. There Will Be Blood, about an oil baron trying to fit into a deeply religious community. The Congress, about an actress who sells the right to be replicated in a virtual environment - very psychedelic and philosophical. A Scanner Darkly, about a dystopian future where everyone is addicted to a drug called "Substance D" - also very psychedelic (even has a bit with Alex Jones as himself). The reason I can't watch...

    I think it is a lot of individual self interest and complete lack of courage that allows these heads of state to be bought out by an ecocidal fossil fuel lobby. The super-rich are buying survival bunkers. It is a real growth industry that promises a means to escape the disaster their growth model inflicts on everyone else....

    Curious to see what comes of Jack Dorsey's BlueSky social media startup. He definitely has more time to pursue it now.

    I wasn't saying that the fund is sufficient to build the needed green projects. My original mention of it did not make any claims about it whatsoever. I agreed that it is a band-aide in a single sentence. By saying, "As I've said in other threads", I was referring to an idea (actually not my own) I had expressed in previous discussions - long before this recent news. If you want to hear it from the horse's mouth, Jeremy Rifkin explains it in a video uploaded by Vice. It is nearly two hours long and does not have timestamps. I really enjoyed it and have seen it more than once. ...

    I agree that this is basically a band-aide. As I've said in other threads, it is in the least developed countries that it would be easiest to build new green projects, including green housing. What the most developed countries have in abundance is high value real estate, much of which was built many decades ago and is difficult to modernize, in the way....

    A Climate Damage Fund has been agreed upon to assist poor countries, as well as island nations in dealing with the impact of Global Warming.

  • To be fair, it is no more a scam than is Amazon Books. You are not at risk of being overcharged or account fuckery, but you are giving out a lot of personal information for the convenience. I remember thinking that, if consumer data is always sold to the highest bidder, it might actually be that Saudi Aramco knows way more about the average person than most of us would be comfortable with, because Aramco has quite a large fortune.

    The fact that I'm buying a fantasy novel isn't something I'm that concerned about being known. It's the principle of it. I do buy books by authors...

  • Hopefully soon, I will start the Mistborn Trilogy. I spent enough time on hold with Indigo Books to play three games of chess online with a podcast in the background. All I wanted was the phone number for a local outlet. The receptionist repeatedly asked me for my full name, which I declined to provide. It was then explained to me that the stores don't typically sell books to customers who walk in, instead requiring people to provide their name, address, email and banking or credit card information, before shipping it out to you. Trying her best to be of help, the receptionist suggested I...

    I had not seen Pelosi's speech before Trump's speech announcing a third try for the White House, in which he claimed credit for "firing" her. There were other things he said that seemed to lack grammatical and logical sense. When I searched for Pelosi's speech, among the top results, Canadian outlet Global News was the one who gave the longest coverage, about 45 minutes. One American outlet's coverage was just over 1 minute long. So I watched the Global one. She has a nice laugh.

    Which games do you consider classics? There could still be some person out there who still refuses to play anything made after Pong. I consider Planescape:Torment a classic in the CRPG genre....

  • All true (Mind 4), which is why I was thinking in terms of summoning over creating.



    In whichever book on Spirits I read last, their powers are described in a long alphabetized list. They were not grouped into categories of similar powers. I found it hard to commit to memory. Having the ability to manifest predates the Gauntlet as it is now. Otherwise, it would not make sense that they can materialize on the other side of a barrier most can't penetrate without the aide of a Spirit-Mage.

    The entry for Spirit at level 4 in both M20 and White Wolf Wiki...

  • Forceful Materialization is mainly what I'm thinking of (too bad you can't edit post title).



    What I'm thinking is not a multi-step process, but a single round action that puts an active creature, capable of independent movement, in the immediate vicinity and ready to act on the next round. As I understand the rules, it would take Prime 2 and Life 3+ for something like a small dragon or Prime 2, Matter 2/3 for something like a mud golem, all in addition to the Corr 2, Spirit 2 requirements. It would obviously be vulgar in most circumstances. With Forces. you could do...

  • Are Sphere requirements for Summoning too high?

    It's some combination of Correspondence, Spirit and Life to summon a creature that has a physical body from the umbra, which is where you would think most summonable beasties would come from. If it's a spirit, you need Prime 2 as well to create a body for it. Summoning is such a big part of magic, as it is often imagined, that it would be cool if it could be done more easily using Ascension's rules. I could be wrong. What do you think?...

    Out of curiosity, where do they get the sleepers or other humans used in their rituals?



    Couldn't find Fringe Walkers in White Wolf Wiki. My Chronicle has some intense themes. I have a less serious chapter in my back pocket, in case I have to cut the tension, involving a group of Organized Marauders known as the Order of the Purple Donkey. They are a small cult in a low-tech agrarian town in the Near Umbra....

    replied to Podcast: But is it Art?
    I listened to this a few weeks ago. I have always thought RPGs are an art form. It's a continuation of the oral linear storytelling tradition with dice and numbers added to tell a usually non-linear story while simulating conflict in a game with rules....

    I will give an example of my most recent one. Life Affirming Ethical Defenses (LEAD) is an It-X company that makes non-lethal weapons, force-field generating body-gear and countermeasures military technology that impairs the weapon-related functions of aircraft. They even make sound-guns for managing wildlife. Players in my Mage Chronicle have to investigate this company....
