And no, Kuro. The SDF-1 won't find that guy's nuts. The SDF-1 is too big. Even Chuck Norris would have problems roundhouse kicking those nuts. They must have a size AC bonus of +gazillion...
If he's taking Refuge in Audacity, wouldn't they be huge and thus have a negative modifier to AC? :P

Actually, I liked Nightwish's ballads. I haven't sampled any of Anette's stuff. I stopped following after Tarja left.

Chuck Norris is a GIANT PUSSY.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

This is a remix of the anime's soundtrack, and a really good one. Just so you know.  :P

...what? The anime didn't create "Emiya", it was in the original VN. ???

Notable BGMs created for the anime: "Pride of the King of Knights" (character theme), "Roar of the Universe" (battle theme), "King of Heroes" (character theme)

Notable songs in the original VN: "Emiya", "Sword of Promised Victory" (original and Heaven's Feel mix), "Mighty Wind", "All the Evils of the World"

The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

You forget I haven't yet played the game, only seen the anime. I didn't mean to imply the song was exclusive to the anime.

If you don't start on the LP soon it will be too late, remember? :grave

I was recently introduced to this song, and discovered that almost the entire album is awesome.

Following the Nightwish discussion, this is IMO a really good cover on one of their better songs (from the Tarja-era obviously). Anyone who fancies modern metal and/or a capella should also check out their other songs, they make great covers and their own material isn't that shabby either

That reminds me. When I first heard that song, I wanted to devise an epic PrC that specialized in casting Wish at no XP cost and without expending spell slots (this was the capstone, by the way).

Back when I presented the class to the 339 boards, it was deemed "too weak" for an epic PrC.

Random quotes:[spoiler]I think Roy's coinages are shitty and dumb, but Failroy has to take the cake for the dumbest new compound word of the year
~

That was kind of the point. I was trying to be a Roy parody, but I guess it didn't come across overly well.

==

JaronK is of course most famous for his massive thought experiments into placing classes into tiers. While a kind of nifty idea, and a decent enough way to think about stuff, his particular tier assignments were basically insane. Apparently the criteria he used was to assign classes relative strength based on what bullshit he personally would let them get away with at 20th level.

So Factotums were rated very highly, because apparently he would let them use Rokugan-exclusive skills with Forgotten Realms-exclusive weapons from the back of MM2 templated warbeasts. But Rogues suck donkey dick, becuase he wouldn't let them use Use Magic Device to read scrolls of Planar Binding. It was a very surreal argument.
~

And to think the system was immortalized in OOTS. As a general rule, I try to avoid all tier discussion there because it's the De Facto system at BG, and I'm not going to change anyone's mind.

Besides, I think if most people are pressed, they will admit that it's just an estimate, anyway, and that results can vary from table to table.
~

My only real complaint with the tier system is that at one point I was tired (tiered?) of hearing about it.[/spoiler]

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"
