Huh. Honestly, if given the option for physicality of all of my games or have my games all be on Steam, I'd personally definitely choose the latter. Not having to store and sort all of that is a big thing for me. I do still have the good Gamecube games- Kirby Air Ride, Thousand Year Door, I think Pikmin 2 is somewhere collecting dust- and a Wii and that's really all I need physically.

Would personally suggest, in order of most to least important, Way of Life, Sons of Abraham, Conclave.

Though ultimately it comes down to your preferences. I'd play a couple of games and see what YOU think could use more depth. If you want more for your character to do, then Way of Life is probably the way to go. If you want more religious mechanics and the ability to borrow from, expel, and play as the jewry, then Sons of Abraham is probably the thing. If you want a deeper and more interactive council, then Conclave.

The traditional new-player start is an Irish count aiming to unify Ireland, then Britain, and it's a fairly fun one. It does a decent job of sort of making sure you don't get into any situations that are too horrible while introducing mechanics to you one at a time.

I'd personally say it's well and away worth ten dollars. By Steam's reckoning I've sunk nearly 400 hours into that game, most of it pretty fun. Good luck if you buy it.

agree

Sounds good.

We can do... I dunno, move from one to the other? Have a game news segment and a news news segment. If you want.

I'd be down too.

That sucks. Wish you and your family the best in dealing with tragedy.

Oh my bad. Still, I believe the same law applies. The wording is "In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation" in the relevant Amendment (XXV), which you can find here by scrolling down a bit. I suppose it doesn't list specific requirements for the Vice President? It's an interesting question.

To answer your question, what you described is what is written into law, yes. A cursory search suggests that the succession hasn't ever reached past the VP before, though.

Art / Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!

I've made a couple of things in April. I need to find a pen to ink with, all the pens in my house are scratchy and unfit for art. For now, the sketch thread.

Art jam with friends, theme: "There Is Something In My Bones"




This one I'm linking to because it's NSFW for a flaccid penis. Naked, warped humanish male escaping from glass-and-bars cell, full frontal. It's from a universe I haven't visited in drawing for years, so I'm glad to go back to things like that. The forum rules only seem to ban pornography* so I think I'm okay?

*Alas, poor Yannick, I knew him well

Eh. I've already played quite a few Korea games and getting Crysanthemum Throne took me enough tries that I don't really want to play any more Japan. Not really interested in playing such a large nation as the Ming.

The Manchu tribe stuff, and the Ages aren't really enough reason to drop fifteen bucks on this. I'll watch some videos to make sure, but I'll skip this one until a sale I think.

I'll probably get Utopia eventually, whenever I start playing Stellaris again.

I'll echo Brandon's sentiment about this being a home. I've been visiting this website since halfway through my twelfth year, about eight years now, and more than a third of my life.

This place is one of my pillars, and you all are a part of that. From the contentious, to the fair, to the friendly, to the creative, the discussions and the back-and-forth here have helped to socialize me, beyond what I would have attained on my own as a socially awkward Aspergic with few-to-no strong IRL friends until halfway through highschool. You guys have helped me and, on the occasions where frustrations arise and I put my foot in my mouth or just out-and-out insult somebody- I can recall at least one occasion of both- you guys are quick to forgive even when most people might rightfully not be.

I've only ever been to like, two birthday parties as a kid, and I don't recall ever throwing one of my own that others attended- that's the kind of social life I'm talking about, for reference.


I have to give first mention to the typically-absentee, ever-missed Flisch, since he's the reason I joined this forum- Spore: The Game was one of many similar forum games I found while searching for such during those periods just before Spore came out, and was what brought me here. He's a pretty cool dude and very occasionally we chat on Steam, though that hasn't happened in a while.

Pat you're like a... I don't want to say "a big brother" because that's kind of an odd thing to say to someone you've never met, and doesn't capture it exactly besides, but I'll go so far as "wacky uncle-like older friend". You're pretty cool, and you have a way of bringing odd and interesting things into a discussion that nobody realized were missing.

GD I don't mention it much, but I identify with some of your struggles. Fighting against the **** inside your own head just to get through what you have to do is an exhausting, toiling experience. The personal perseverance you show in the face of it honestly inspires me. I wish I were more like you. Also, you're a complete cutie.

Slinky I envy your artistic ability. I really like the way you draw people and also that you can just sort of smoosh biological shapes around until you get hilarious things, like Uncle Skrotor and Cousin Joe. It's dope. You're dope.

Gauph I envy your artistic ability for a different reason. I'll say it again, verbatim: I really dig your outline-ambivalent, pixel-pencil style. I especially liked the comic you made a few pages of throughout the March daily-draw, the one about those two chumps going into an old technocastle. Pretty cool.

Marty I kind of missed the bandwagon for this by a mile but holy crap you actually are, like, a professional gameman. Dude. DUDE. It's so wicked awesome, I really cannot overstate this.


To everyone on this forum: For attending to my loneliness better than reality ever did, thank you all. For being such fantastic individuals as to make this group so great, thank you all. I'll remember you all on my deathbad, wherever and whenever in the future that may be. You've made a true impact on my life, for the better. Without this place I would assuredly be doing worse. Sorry if I didn't name you, but it took me like an hour to write this, I am not very good with compliments. Know that I do appreciate you.

Nice story! Very good at tapping the odd fear/uncomfortableness that comes with that sort of thing, yeah. Good stuff.
