    Hmm. Maybe the only way to get Slarty to rank your entries is to post ones he's guaranteed to like... - Square One TV - Waving Hands / Warlocks - Madeline Kahn - Egizia Slarty, I'll even save you some trouble.
  7. Slarty Ranks Everything

    My take on "Stuff from the 90s" is that it's mostly a parody of those "only 90s kids remember..." social media posts that invariably revolve around touchstones of consumerism. Other generations get VE-Day, or the moon landing, or the fall of the Berlin Wall, we get... stuff. Hence the repeated "stuff, stuff, let's name stuff". The other aspect (and this might be more of a stretch) is that 90s kids, having been children during that decade, tend to view it as being peaceful overall. In particular, I find that the younger half of millennials seem to view 9/11 as the original sin, the opening of Pandora's box that let all the evils into our post-Cold War paradise. I guess it's the same way older generations view the 50s as this idyllic era. I dunno. I like it, though what I liked most about it was the groans it induced every time it popped up on Calref chat. Also, the high ranking you gave The Ruiner of Campaigns makes me think you've never played with it before.

    (The fact that all but two of the top 10 are from 2015 or later is troubling.)

    I was indeed submitting it as an entry. If I had my druthers, your list would be half other lists and half self-reference. Speaking of which, I submit: - "2500 things Mr. Welch can no longer do during an RPG" (1-500, 501-1000, 1001-1500, 1501-2000, 2001-2500) - "The Evil Overlord List" (http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html) - "The BGG Top 10" (https://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame)

    i was literally going to post this why must you snipe me so Anyway, yeah. Let's make it official. "Slarty Ranks Everything". Also "Georg Cantor", "Bertrand Russell", and "the Barber Paradox". EDIT: Upon rereading I am realizing that you were merely laughing at this thread, rather than submitting "this thread" as an entry. I haven't been getting much sleep lately. EDIT2: dropjes are amazing
  18. What will happen after Avernum 3 Ruined World?

    For every line of code in my BoA design tutorial, there's a paragraph, and for every tool used in the editor, there's a screenshot.
  19. What have you been eating recently?

    Today's episode of Eat It Before It Goes Bad stars "perogies", with special guests "half this bell pepper is mouldy" and "why do we have have so many partially-used red onions in the fridge". (In the grand tradition of threads like What Have You Been Reading Recently and What Have You Been Listening To Recently, use this thread to talk about, well, food you've been eating recently. Drinks too; we're lenient like that. New recipe that you just tried out? Cooking advice? Fancy-pants restaurant that you just visited and want to brag about? Chat about it here!)

    Hello! I am a new scenario designer and I would appreciate it if people could beta test my first scenario: Pesky Goblins. You can download the latest beta version of the scenario here. If you're able to test, post in the thread, and please PM me your feedback when you're done. Thank you!

    Makes sense. I've heard that stolen food's tastier. (Sister made a really nice batch of stoofpeertjes for Christmas dinner; I could bug her for the recipe.)

    Hard g, soft g, you're both wrong. As a Dutchman, I've always pronounced the G in GIF as a voiced velar fricative.

  24. Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    You're not missing much. Some time after Bonus Army was released, Lilith uploaded a .wav of her saying "Bonus Army" in a long drawn-out fashion. Think of it as a proto-"Longest Yeah Boy Ever". A couple years later, the .wav was (re?)discovered, and the Shadow Vale gang decided to do their own versions of the clip. Most of the links are 404s now, but the ones that are still around are Aran's, mine, and (my favourite) Niemand's.
