    Also, BUCSie has expressed interest to run an RPG campaign on rolld20 for H&R commenters. So I want to see if there is any interest. Indicate below if you are interest and we can see whether this is worth doing. I am sure BUCSie would incorporate libertarian themes of all kinds into the campaign.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    I've played in rolld20 campaigns online. Years of experience as both a DM and Player in D&D 3.0, 3.5, 5.0.

  • silver.||

    Uhh.. sure? Never gamed before, but I think I could figure it out. How much of my bustling social life will it consume?

    [oh my god a libertarian online RPG campaign I am never going to speak to a woman again]

    I'm going straight for cave k.

  • Conchfritters||

    beware of the mad hermit.

  • Conchfritters||

    I freed the merchant and his two captured guards, then hired the guards away and built them up to level 20.

  • Eidde||

    Is this Dungeons and Dragons stuff?

    Which set of rules?

  • Eidde||

    Oops, that came across too nerdy...I mean, what are you guys talking about?

  • Rat on a train||

    I think they're talking about a Jeremy Irons film.

  • Eidde||

    I've been here too long...at first I thought you said a Ron Jeremy film.

  • Rat on a train||

    Ron Jeremy's Rod of Splendor

  • The Last American Hero||

    Does it revolve around a plan by the King's Men to ban assault swords, enslave the Clerics and force them to provide free healthcare, and import large numbers of Goblin and Orc refugees from a civil war going on in the Broken Lands?

  • Steevie||

    if so, count me in

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Well, this went fast. Uh, I was thinking of doing a non-DnD RPG depending on the situation, but I don't have much idea yet.

    Do people have strong preference towards the game? DnD has the advantage to being the easiest to play in many ways. Lots of fighting, that takes a long time. Do you guys have feelings about it?

  • Ska||

    Pathfinder works well, but more difficult to build characters than 5e. If non-DnD/non-medieval fantasy, go Shadowrun.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    The issue I'm seeing now is we have like 15 people saying yes. Which is a huge group. I was hoping to run a more RP heavy game, I keep mentioning WoD, but I think that might not be great for a big group.

    So, now I'm thinking Shadowrun, if we really want it to be Libertarian themed, Shadowrun is basically the stereotype of Libertarian future.

  • Chipper Morning Baculum||

    BUCS, don't worry about the large number of people that expressed interest. I am sure not everyone will follow through, and not everyone will be able to make each session. I would worry about that if we are actually ready to start a session and there is a dozen people all geared up to go. If that happens, you can take the first six to show up, or something like that.

    As for the game, I am up for anything, but would also prefer an RP heavy group, with some combat and puzzle solving thrown in. I've played Shadowrun, but about 20 years ago. I remember enjoying it.

  • gaoxiaen||

    Yes, ennui and malaise.

  • Robert||

    Is STEVE SMITH a player, or a nonplayer character?

  • American Mongrel||

    Long time lurker. Yes! Formerly a halfling assassin

  • Eidde||

    "halfling assassin"

    Probably one of the Sackville-Bagginses.

  • Charles Easterly||

    Also, BUCSie has expressed interest to run an RPG campaign on rolld20 for H&R commenters. So I want to see if there is any interest.

    If enough individuals agree and can arrange to play I would like to watch the occasional game when I have the opportunity to do so, primarily due to Chipper's impression I am sure BUCSie would incorporate libertarian themes of all kinds into the campaign., which echoes my own hope. From what I understand, there are many RPGs to watch on Youtube. However, of those I have watched most of them are not worth my watching.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    No. Though if you do remember, a few months ago someone posted and said he had been talking to the actual Michael Hihn and they had a chuckle about the one here. So, if true, the Hihn we have is already an hihntimator.

    Holy shit, what kind of parents fucked these kids up?

  • silver.||

    Tangentially related: "on January 11, 2017, [Roof] was sentenced to death for those [federal] crimes. On March 31, 2017, Roof agreed to plead guilty in South Carolina state court to all state charges pending against him—nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony—to avoid a second death sentence."

    Why..?

    Ah! Didn't think about that, thanks.

  • Eidde||

    Yeah, and if he wins a federal appeal he won't have to worry about a simultaneous state appeal.

    The same parents that wrote the creepy Mercenary Murder plank and smuggled it into the 2016 LP Platform? The honky kid drew the death sentence--not for plant leaves, as in Republicanworld--but for murdering a bunch of unarmed people for racial collectivism. This would be a good time to delete that voter-alienating plank and insert an Atlas Shrugged Amendment plank in its stead, no? The Republicans have their Coathanger Abortion plank, and the Dems have their Nationalize Everything plank, so what's the problem?

    It's an unpopular opinion, but seriously. What about them? People say dumb shit like this on Facebook every day I'd wager. We talk about woodchipping undesirables all the time. But because she's a blood relative of a real killer and happened to have a knife and PEPPER SPRAY on campus (oh the horror) she gets nabbed. The drug charge is just a bonus.

  • ||

    It's an unpopular opinion, but seriously. What about them?

    Some of us pointed out that people calling the cops about a threat is routinely used as just cause or reasonable suspicion for everything from letting someone off with a warning to full on SWATting people but when it came to the actual shooter in Florida, we were told he was untouchable by the Police *and* the FBI because laws and rights and stuff.

    IMO and on the other hand, there's plenty of reason (drink) for a jury of 12 to try and figure out if what she said constituted a threat. But, personally, the part that is really fucking scary is the 'do your thang twitter' posted over the top of Roofs' statement. I'd put good money on a Twitter-induced, State-affiliated lynching in the next 6-24 mos.

  • Calidissident||

    I love how you have no argument besides calling anyone who disagree with you a lefty who doesn't realize this is all part of Trump's genius chessgame. You overuse the term "lefties" about as bad as antifa overuses the term "fascist."

    I really do love how Trump fanboys go back and forth between "Trump tells it like it is and he means what he says unlike those typical flip-flopping liar politicians!" and "He doesn't actually mean that, you're stupid for falling for that, can't you see he's just playing 4D chess here?"

    So the cops found the drugs and knife how? Search warrant or after arresting her for not threatening anyone?

    It's weird. It's like if you just call the cops about a threat, they'll swoop in and do something about it, making up things as they go along the way. But if you call the FBI, the Sheriff, other local PD, and the school things get lost in the shuffle and, you know, rights and stuff.

    A recently erected, still-under-construction pedestrian bridge at Florida International University collapsed, trapping people underneath. Several deaths have been reported.

    I pick April 1 for the school walkout for common sense bridge control. That bridge probably killed more people than the school shooting.

  • Ken Shultz||

    A new bridge collapse like that is inexcusable. It's one thing if an old bridge isn't maintained or inspected properly.

    Not building, designing, or inspecting new stuff is nuts. Look for union and/or government complacency.

    There was $300 million in construction done on a part of City Center in Las Vegas that got more than 10 stories off the ground before they realized that the rebar in the concrete didn't match what was on the plan. I heard a talk from one of the engineers they tried to get to sign off on that project.

    The rebar they had would only have supported half the stories they had approved to build. Can you imagine?

    This situation is probably like Ayn Rand's train stuck in the tunnel. Not one person who fucked up, but a whole system of people.

  • Jerryskids||

    The university's engineering school has an "accelerated bridge" program that works on techniques to speed up bridge construction. The program consulted with builders, designers and engineers early in the process, but was not closely involved in the pedestrian bridge program, a spokeswoman said last week.

    Funny, when I looked up stories on the bridge being put in place last week, it sounded very much like the ABC program at FIU was taking credit for the bridge.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Maybe its engineers suck these days.

    In my county, they tore up the old two lane and added a new two lane concrete road on each side for about a mile. Next thing I know they are tearing up that new concrete road. I still cannot get the county to admit what the mistake was. I think the contractor fucked up and ate the cost.

    Seattle Soda tax... WHAT'S GOING ON?!!

    Take coconut water, for example. Jones found coconut water being sold at a Seattle shop with a sugar tax included in the price. But that drink should be not be subject to the tax. It has no added sugars. At the same time, an Odwalla protein shake had no extra charge because drinks with milk as a main ingredient are exempt.

    "According to the city, (coconut water) is not supposed to be taxed," Jones said. "The problem is the distributor got it wrong. Or the store got it wrong and it was still charging people the tax for it."

    "It just blows me away that 47 grams of sugar (in an Odwalla drink) …" he said. "This is crazy. At the same time, milk is a no. 1 product. You start to think as to why they wouldn't (tax milk drinks)? … This is just me extrapolating here. But what other business in town sells a lot of sugary drinks with milk in it?"

    The answer is Starbucks.
  • Diane Reynolds (Paul.)||

    "The other thing we heard … the city is not sure when they are going to start auditing," he said. "We are told: 'it might be this quarter, it might be next quarter. If we see something alarming we might do it now.' We don't even know when the auditors are going to start checking."

    Jones also attempted to have city council members explain the soda tax and answer some of the confusion. He questions the logic of the soda tax. It will hit poor residents most, yet is sold as a means to fund healthier food options for that same demographic.

    "We tried to talk with every member of council," Jones said. "Everyone is either too busy for a very long time or declined to speak to us. That's a problem to me. You have seven folks who voted for it and every single one doesn't want to talk to us. That's an issue."

    OT: My alma mater is having a mass shooting "town hall," and a leader from one of my state's 2A groups is a panelist, and the other three are anti-2A. AFAIK it's only open to students, but I can probably flash my ID and get in so that it's not completely stacked with anti-2A folks, but on the off-chance I can ask a question, I don't want to be hit with a bike lock and put in a coma when I try to leave.

    I think the hivemind self-repression is doing its job.

    The 2nd amendment guarantees the peoples' right to keep and bear bike locks.

    Is anyone else getting an Israel tourism ad with a large-breasted woman?

    Sheriff Israel or Israel Israel?

  • Eidde||

    If she's a sheriff, she can book me anytime.

    Pics or GTFO.

    I roll with an ad-block so I wouldn't know.

    Yes. A current fave.

    ANOTHER republican death-penalty push? What next? Another Flag-burning Amendment? Another Coathanger Abortion Amendment? Another light-beer felony Amendment?
