    replied to Solars starting the game with Artifacts
    A couple times already my solar started with it by nearly drowning and finding it in a pocket of air in some cave or temple underwater.
    One just happened to start the game with Summoning the Loyal Steel, and lo' there was a sword there!

    Alucard, Do you know the difference between media portrayal of something and use force to enact your will on someone else's life?
    This kind of unwillingness to talk in the same terms is what pissed me off here. Please. Allow yourself to doubt your own knowledge for a moment, or this won't work.

    Yeah because who cares about working under correct premises, right. Epistemology be damned.
    I'm off this discussion, it's not going anywhere.

    Oh, and I wasn't asking for proof. I was asking to evaluate whether the hypothesis can be tested in the first place. It's a subtle difference, but it couldn't be greater.

    Well, we can go there, like I did in my first post here. They do not matter in that way. It's wrong in the exact same assumptions that lead, for example, to claiming videogames cause violence.
    There are a few case studies out there showing that usually you get rid of those stigmas in a gradual way. Forcing the issue only brings reactance.
    So, back to changing that character not mattering: What is the canon right now? Can you change it without feeling forced? If not, then please don't, it'll be more bother than gain. That's all...


    This, done right, is fantastic at...

    I can't say I agree or disagree with what you`re saying because my thoughts on this actually go on a third direction. So here's what I have to say: Cultures change surprisingly little based on media. Media has a very specific place in how people think: It serves to define the hot topic, not people's opinions on it.
    This is corroborated by how overall any definite change in the zeitgeist is composed over time and either comes from a strong Reactance or didn't cause much of it.

    I'm bringing this up because of how this particular problem is usually approached. In this case determining...
