General Discussion / English Wikipedia Blackout
January 17, 2012, 01:24:37 AM

Wikipedia will have a blackout to protest SOPA and PIPA. More information on the page of the link.

"Today, the Wikipedia community announced its decision to black out the English-language Wikipedia for 24 hours, worldwide, beginning at 05:00 UTC on Wednesday, January 18"

Above quote provided for those who could not access the link due to blackout.

Not sure if this should be in "Politics," but this is less about politics and more about just keeping people informed.

This only applies to the English Wikipedia, at least at the moment.
TSoG / Set

I recently realized that Set is also the name of an Egyptian deity, the god of darkness and chaos. Is this just a coincidence, or is it deliberate?

Politics / Gaddafi is Dead
October 24, 2011, 05:45:21 AM
Gaddafi is dead. The dictator of Libya has been killed by rebels in Sirte on October 20th. Some people may say that he didn't deserve to die like he did. Agree, disagree? Why or why not?

If the Assassin's Cult is a cult, what's their religion?
Quote from: CraigStern on May 30, 2011, 08:14:22 AM
I think I'll leave that one up to player speculation.
I presume they worship the Queen, her being considered a god and all.

Politics / The Doomsday Theory
March 17, 2011, 09:40:53 PM
We've all heard about it, the 2012 doomsday theory, what do you think about this? Will we all die next year, or is this just another Y2K?
General Discussion / Anniversary

On Tuesday, February 1st was the New Sinister Design Forums' one year anniversary! Hooray! ;D
General Discussion / Guests
February 03, 2011, 06:42:36 PM
Has anyone noticed the huge number of Guests today? I mean, right now, there are 53, and I think the number is rising every time I refresh the page... I don't mean to sound paranoid, just that it is a rare occasion to have this much activity on the forum, even if it is from Guests. Also, I would've done this as a post, but there was no thread I could post in without necroposting, which is why I created this thread, which most will think is meaningless.
General Discussion / Happy Holidays
December 24, 2010, 02:54:58 AM

TSoG / General Suggestions Thread
November 19, 2010, 11:19:12 PM
This is where you just give general advice and hope Craig pays some attention and considers it, what with his busy schedule.

Suggestion: Try out the Torque X or 2d Engine while they still last, they'll be selling them soon, a free demo here for X and here for 2D, or you can buy the full versions here for X and here for 2D, if you buy both, the minimum price will be about $200, maximum about $500.

Rules: As always, don't spam, don't flame, use proper grammar and punctuation, and post intelligent ideas. :)
Politics / Government of Choice
October 17, 2010, 12:47:54 AM
What government type do you support? Democracy, Republic, something else? If I were to pick a government type, it would be Communism, not the Leninism/Stalinism Communism with those dictators, but the theoretical, working Communism, i.e., everyone is equal, no social classes, nobody is out of anybody's league, etc.

As a side, please do not criticize other people's government choices, you can point out what's wrong with Communism if you like (go wild, im2smart4u), but no lashing out at other people simply because of what they believe in.
Forum Games / Make a comic!
September 23, 2010, 11:39:18 PM
Pretty self-explanatory, eh? Just make a comic any way you can (as long as it isn't offensive), and post it here! :3

That's a quick one I made on short notice. Enjoy!
Forum Games / The Incident
September 05, 2010, 12:21:44 AM
Believe it or not, this is another RP story, but it's more of a miniature RP, as it isn't about an entire world. Warning: The contents of this story may be overly cliche for most people.

In April, 2004, a top secret underground military installation in Ukraine has suddenly gone quiet and lost contact. The last decipherable message from the compound was from the head scientist, Dr. Sergey Ivanovich Virkov, on March 23rd, 2004, stating that everything was either going well or mostly well before the messages turned to crazed mumblings of an unknown scientist who seemed to have thought that the communications center was a journal log, shortly before contact was lost altogether. Two weeks later a group of international special forces soldiers would be dispatched to investigate after a team of soldiers didn't report back after being sent inside the complex. The Ukrainian government is planning to destroy the facility if the other team of soldiers doesn't return, as to not allow any evidence of the experiments that were brewing inside to the public in any way, as they fear the effect of this getting out into the public would cause a problem for the government far greater than the Chernobyl project ever did.[/spoiler]

[spoiler=Rules]1. Do not use offensive language unless in dialogue, but try to keep even that at a minimum.
2. Do not try to offend anyone's country or any country in general.
3. While the other RPs were against character control, this one is a bit different, since we are working as a team most of the time, so tactics, battles, and some conversations (as long as they portrait the other team members accurately) can have character control.
4. No team members get killed unless they agree to it (this would be part of character control, but this should be stressed).
5. Have correct grammar (at least understandable will do).
6. Make sense when you write, as in, don't spoil dramatic or eerie sequences by making a monster or something jump out of nowhere, unless that's what the moment is about.[/spoiler]

Alright, anyone who wants to have a crack at this, send me a PM with the character form below filled out.

General Discussion / Duckling sig

Quote from: KZ on September 04, 2010, 06:18:29 PM
Thus, would the current "Duckling" like to start things off?
Hilarious! :D Oh, and Duckling, thanks about the comment on my signature, though how did you change the "s" to a "c" in that signature without, at least it looks like, remaking it?
TRPG2 / Niven
September 01, 2010, 09:46:19 PM
Does Niven happen to be named after David Niven, a British WWII soldier who was an aspiring actor? I thought so because they were both a form of actor, Niven a performer, and David Niven would be an actor.
Politics / It's over!

The war in Iraq is officially over! Thoughts?
Pretty self-explanatory, eh? :)

Mine is Georgy Zhukov, the most celebrated general in Russian history so far.
Random Projects / New TRPG game
August 22, 2010, 10:52:05 PM
Quote from: CraigStern on August 22, 2010, 10:47:03 PM
This won't be making it in to TSoG, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this in the Telepath game that comes after it. ;)
Well, at least now we have direct confirmation of a next Telepath game from the very source. The question, however, is "Will it be like TSoG?" as in, "Will we have to pay for it?"
TRPG2 / Malignus' Name
August 22, 2010, 09:54:46 PM
I was just surfing through the dictionary (it's what I do when I'm bored), and noticed the word "Malignant." After seeing that word, Malignus instantly came to mind. Some synonyms for the word would be "Evil," "Cruel," and "Malevolant," to name a few. Was it intentional, as he didn't seem very evil in the very sense of the word. Discuss.
