Re: The D&D Corner

OK, fair enough. Your art looks pretty amazing to me, 'cos I can't draw worth a damn. ;) I can't half-write, though. I work very hard at improving my writing - I now have enough materials for at least four books. <shameless plug> ;) But like you, I find it difficult to "write" women characters convi...

Re: Disney Characters Drawn.

*** WARNING: RANT *** As for Meg from the Hercules movie ... who in Hades is Meg? That's not an ancient Greek name, that's for sure. Disneyfication strikes again! :P *looks it up* Ah, Megara - a princess of the city-state of Thebes. The way I see it, it's all for entertainment. For example, all of ...

Re: The D&D Corner

Huzzah for nat-20s! :D But yes, attacking a Mind Flayer (never mind FOUR of them) when you have no defense against psionic attacks probably ranks as one of the Top Ten D&D Bonehead Moves. ;) (Some others include trying to pickpocket Elminster, trying to attack Drizzt Do'Urden, etc. etc... oh - and a...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

*snerk* "What if we made a bunch of money?" :lol:

I never bothered with anything past the original trilogy. Sorry - I'm a dinosaur. :P I've read some of the discussion here about SW, and it looks like I haven't missed much - have I? ;)

Re: Disney Characters Drawn.

25 is Tinkerbell? Not Wendy? Ugh. It's been way too long since I've seen anything about Peter Pan - it must have got mixed up in my head. :? Incidentally, that moth that (in the FOTR film) Gandalf conjures while imprisoned on top of Orthanc reminded me of the way Tinkerbell looks in the Peter Pan mo...

Re: The D&D Corner

I'm so sorry to hear about Jessica's grandfather passing away. :( Ettin is enslaved by Mind Flayers! Good idea. :) Attacking four Mind Flayers when the party is (IIRC) an average of level 5-6? Not a good idea. :shock: :P As for the illustration - is that your take on the D&D show from the 80s? Looks...

Re: Disney Characters Drawn.

The sexualization of Disney. You mean, Disney for grown-ups? ;) Disney's been sneaking sexual images into movies for years. As for me... I'm not big on Disney, but let's see. *cracks knuckles* #3 is Snow White. #4 has something to do with the Lion King, but I'd never seen it so I've no idea. #7 (bl...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Well, fair enough. I've never seen STD in action (neither one nor the other)! ;) Hmm - if I'm not opening a Pandora's box here, where does the "Kirk vs. Picard" rivalry come from? Personally, I don't understand it. I've watched a few episodes of both, and I like them both just fine. They simply have...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Um, what do you mean by STD, Collector? Do you mean Star Trek: Discovery (as opposed to the "other" STD)? ;)

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Whoops! *blush* Thanks for correcting me, MI. I'll know better next time not to confuse TNG and Voyager. What is the timeline after ST Classic, by the way? *curious* Is it ST Classic, then TNG, then Voyager? What happens after Voyager? (I'm leaving the films out of this so as to make it simpler. I d...

Re: Spot the GK tune (with drums by a police officer)

Ah. *listens* Then yes, I think Simo is right. :) The music with the officer's drumming is strangely reminiscent of the GK music. ;)

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

...of crows. :lol: I tried watching the classic Star Trek, with Shatner and Nimoy etc., when I was a kid. Unfortunately, all the philosophical parts went "whoosh" over my head - but I was, perhaps, 7 or 8, so of course they would have. Recently, I tried watching a few episodes of TNG and was pleasan...

Re: Watch the Destruction of Pompeii by Mount Vesuvius, Re-Created with Computer Animation (79 AD)

Um - it's a bit late now, sure - but I'd like to point out, for the record, that I don't actually live in the Melbourne Museum. :P :lol: That would be weird. ;)

Re: Watch the Destruction of Pompeii by Mount Vesuvius, Re-Created with Computer Animation (79 AD)

Yes, I remember watching this back in 2013 (when it was posted for the first time by the Melbourne Museum - that's where I live!) :) I have to say, though, there would've been much more noise in the city throughout the day. All we can hear are timbers creaking, people shouting, and dogs barking. Whe...
