  • Officially no, Potence has no effect on thrown damage beyond being able to lift and throw bigger things and throw those (a refrigerator or a car would do more damage than a rock). So if you picked up a car and smacked someone with it you'd do your strength + the car damage and add your Potence bonus, but if you picked up a car and tossed it at someone as hard as you could, you'd only do strength + the car damage.

    I think that was still largely the case in older editions too because I remember seeing this pop up on the old forums, and I remember houseruling things to allow Potence...

  • Back in earlier editions there were a few who joined the Bull of the North, and even a couple who joined Lyta. But by and large they tended to be more footnotes in the character's story rather than major figures so it's quite easy to end up forgetting they exist.

    In the Bible in Genesis there's a segment when God is throwing Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden and he stops to curse the Serpent who temped Eve. At the end of his curse God says, "he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." Many Christian denominations interpret that message as a metaphor for Jesus defeating Satan (basically Satan causes Jesus to die, striking his heel, but it's not a permanent defeat. In dying Jesus saves mankind's souls, metaphorically crushing Satan's head and defeating him forever).

    Set has that heavy duty serpent theme going for him,...

    Ghost in the Shell was not a great movie to bring that message considering there's a long history in Hollywood of casting white actors for roles in which Asian actors would be more appropriate, because in Hollywood, it's very much what's on the outside that counts the most.

    This created a large amount of ironic conflict in Ghost in the Shell where the creation team decided to not hire an Asian actress because they felt that having a white movie star would net more money at the box office. So they had the message that someone's outside, physical appearance wasn't actually supposed...

  • Oh, I remember reading that. Then the creator took like 2 or 3 years off and I forgot all about it. Did he ever continue it or finish it?

    Most of the vampires who claim to be gods are full of BS but some are likely legit. For example, Set is probably just who he claims to be. Keep in mind there is an ancient ghost in the Underworld who claims to be Osiris. And according to him, his brother Set killed him. And that brother Set is the same Set who's a vampire. And he has a son named Horus who came back as a mummy. And Horus claims that that ghost named Osiris is the legit Osiris and that the vampire Set is his uncle and the legit Set. And you have others, such as the god Anubis or the Cult of Isis. It would be pretty easy for Osiris...

  • I mean people in general are interested in unexplained stuff. Whether it's ghost ships or the Bermuda Triangle or whatever, people are going to be interested in it.

    As to the Roanoke colony disappearance specifically, after they vanished there was a ton of legal maneuvering that played out in the English courts as well is in the court of public opinion. Walter Raleigh had the legal claim to Virginia, but only so long as the Roanoke colonists were still alive. No colonists meant he had no claim. Meanwhile some of the families of vanished colonists wanted them to be declared legally...

    I mean, there is a "race" problem, but it's a more of a mechanical one and the way that race can become a block when making character creation (some races make for stronger character classes than others and players can sometimes feel compelled to make a character of one race as opposed to another because of those bonuses).

    However I think when some people saw Crawford said that there was a "race problem," in light of current political events they immediately looked at it more like racism as a problem, as opposed to a mechanical character customization problem....

    From what I understand it's a French movie written by a Senegalese Muslim woman, based on her own life. As a child she grew up in an extremely fundamentalist religious household. She ended up joining a child dance group that focused on twerking and such as a way to sort of escape that. However she eventually realized that this was not a good thing and that getting children to focus on the hypersexualization of their bodies is absolutely abhorrent. The moral of the movie, is that when children are raised in repressive households they go looking for outlets and often times those outlets end up being...
