  1. It's more clearly implied that Khyryk is a widow, and the agent he has mementos from is his dead wife.
  2. How often did going rogue come up? Did rolling for it every time concentration would be checked get cumbersome?
  3. Original G1 Shaper inventory mannequin.
  4. I would assume that the forums have at least a couple other higher-level backers on them. What'd you add, if anything? Personally, I paid to add an NPC to the game: it's the servile with a flute, if you ever find him(unless that art gets reused, in which case he's one of the serviles with flutes). He's a moderately oblique reference to something obscure, hopefully in a classy kind of way. The new cockatrice-esque creation was also largely based on my suggestion, which I've not had sufficient chance to brag about yet.
  5. What exactly are the tracked reputations? The ones for mother, Owen/Mascha, Ukat, and Ahriel, and magnanimous/hard rulership are fairly obvious, but it seems like there are more. Is there a general Vol reputation separate from Owen/Mascha? Is there something similar for the Ahriel underclass/overclass, or are those different outcomes just quest-gated? There seems to be a reputation for formality/informality, does that mean anything at all? Or is that part of another one, maybe mother's or magnanimous/hard? The Nisse don't have one, do they?
  6. Most of the things I'm trying to do don't benefit much from resolutions in this sense, but here's one: See a dentist with my brand-new dental insurance before something goes wrong.
  7. The letter keys can't be used to close the inventory because they're used to select items. There's not really any way to change it. I've always used ESC, it's rapid enough. There's some theoretical world where clicking outside of the opened windows does something, or using the inventory shortcut closes the window if there's no item using that letter, but we don't live there. Relish the opportunity to stretch your fingers, it's good for you.
  8. That kind of thing is more anthropology than history.
  9. This test doesn't ask for demographic information, but also doesn't give numerical scores. "Low" "About Average" "High".
  10. Yeah. Technocratic biotechnologist fascist-academics led by a Shaper Ring Council.
  11. Maybe it's not quite the kind of name the topic intended, but what's the word on Jeff getting the term "Shaper" from Schismatrix and the rest of the Shaper/Mechanist universe? Geneforge was originally going to be science fiction, after all.
  12. So I finished Lilith's Brood a couple weeks ago, and I'm sure someone else here has done the same, so: I have a question.
  13. I don't know that very much was surprising, but I laughed at the ridesharing section.
  14. If that had been a required question with only cis and trans radio buttons, I would not have submitted the survey. So you tell me how much more useful data that generates. That is not close enough.
  15. This is only occasionally what transgender means in theory, and never all that it means in practice. Regardless: I and at least several other respondents are neither(not just "yeah i'm cis but eh") and I at least resent attempts at annexation.
  16. Calref: a place for low-class queer failures.
  17. FWIW, I was one of the responses that chose "I prefer neither", and its presence means a lot to me. Cis people not wanting a word for cis to exist is a thing, and surely the majority of those responses to the poll, but people that are clearly not cis and also clearly different from trans people are also a thing. Or maybe it's just me. Still though.
  18. I think it's clear that the survey was constructed in a reasonable way with a lot of consideration given to various priorities but that a notable portion of participants think two or three questions could use rewording or additional options. The minor issues people have had - really, mostly just the political categories being unclear or seeming misapplied to some - are not condemnations of the entire effort of survey-making and aren't calls for any kind of major restructuring or change in ethos. Like, the rationale you have supplied for these minor criticisms is reasonable and I think everyone
  19. Yeah, I became a minister through American Marriage Ministries to officiate Neb and Sylae's marriage and it was real simple and inexpensive. I think I had to send one letter to the governor's office and most of my expenses were a voluntary donation. And, I mean, technically and legally AMM is a religious organization, but it's clear that the actual purpose is to enable anyone who wants to officiate a marriage to do so. There are at least two large nationwide organizations that do this. Probably the intent of the law is to privilege religious officials, but in practice the definition of "religi
  20. It was obvious to me what all of these are. Mainly, I echo Sylae: I don't know why you would expect these to sell on shirts. By default, things do not sell, and I dunno what would move these from that baseline. I've never really liked graphic tees, and less and less so as time goes on. I'm really picky about clothing, though. There seem to be two ways to sell a graphic tee to the masses. Cheap as dirt and not overt, so people who subsist on a wardrobe of graphic tees will buy it at random when one of their old ones dissolves, or ludicrously overpriced and of genteel branding, so ba
  21. Clearly, it's just that both trans stuff and video games tend to have disproportionate numbers of people on the autism spectrum.

    It looks like Discord, in proud tech startup tradition, for a long time didn't make any revenue at all but ran on investor money with eventual plans to add monetization. They do have a $5/mo premium service now and probably are gonna start selling emoji packs or skins or something similar pretty soon. But hey, Twitter and Youtube have never ever been profitable, so maybe it'll just stay how it is.
