    A betrayed tribesman rightful leader who goes to civilized lands to learn and gain weapons to take back his birthright, and who is later sidetracked by the movie industry and becomes an actor. One day perhaps his acting skills shall come in handy. Thats my first idea. A brutish tribesman turned charismatic movie star revolutionist.

    My friends it is finished, This is just stunning. The artist did an amazing job on it if I say so myself. The soon to be seen character Berahthram Silver-Shield (Or Berahthram I of the Silver-Shield dynasty) whom is the current Royal Casurgian king in Roscrea.

    Oasis is pretty dang fun, especially for Reinhardt mainers, since it encourages people to brawl in the point and people try hiding on the sides in small corridors. Perfect for clean sweeping with a hammer, lol.

    It's definitely anti-McCarthyism era America and the anti Red Scare America. Which Fallout cranks all the way up to 100, in both the Communism fear and pro-American greatness. And the heavy govt. influence in response to the threat of communism. It's less anti American than it is showing the (exaggerated) dangers of Cold War era America. I don't have a tumblr. What's it say?

  15. So, I took a nap, had some pizza and I'm good. Sorry about that. Anywho, @Collins to your PM I'll shoot you a starter post sometime soon, and on the subject of the Kylo vs Ray fight, after watching it again, it still bugs me at how much they forced her to be the new chosen one, but then Anakin came out of nowhere too. Hell, the force even birthed him Baby Jesus style, so with that in mind I suppose I can let it slide, Star Wars was never all that subtle. Though even Anakin lost his first duel. Badly. But again, Dooku wasn't at all injured, and Kylo Ren was basically running hot on a five kill streak with low health and no Mercy in sight, facing a newbie with Gengi. He was gonna lose.

    Not to mention him hitting the wound is him trying to draw on the dark side. We know he struggled with his light or dark associations. He could have very well not been able to call on the dark side. I would say his losing and him not being able to grab the lightsaber is a strong indication he couldn't draw on the dark side because he was still conflicted following murdering his father. Also, we don't know what murdering the Jedi acolytes entailed. They could've been little more than toddlers. Younglings. And we don't know how trained they were. And he had help. And we don't know how good a teacher Luke is. Could be a shit one, since Kylo still needs training. The assumption you're making is that he had the level of training he should've had, when I think the indication is he doesn't have that level of training. At least, not with a lightsaber, since he wields it like a cudgel more than a sword. He clearly has strong Force powers but those were out of wack after killing Han.

    My mage is a Nord thank you very much. I love Overwatch. I played the beta and have been hooked ever since. I used to main McCree but have since switched to Zarya and, not to toot my own horn, I'm pretty ******* good as her. Overall is so much fun, especially if you have some friends to play with. Speaking of having friends to play BF1 with is also really fun. My brother and two of our friends were playing with two friends of ours last night and we're consistently the top players on our team, playing the objectives and stuff. Always got a lot of kills too.

  23. Right now I only have two characters, One is a Wasteland Hierophant of sorts from the far southeast (North of the Chattahoochee National Forest in the remains of McCaysville) older fellow traveling the wastes both spreading old world knowledge of survival and working the land and learning the current ways of life along the way. Wondering across the east until eventually finding Wellstone, Instead of finding a shithole of savages this place is much more advanced then his own ways. Other one is so I can have a POV in the brotherhood is a wasteland tribal from a bumblefuck nowhere hovel, The horrid village eventually becomes unlivable with their water source drying up. Instead of choosing a life of Nomadic raiding my tribal went north to the Brotherhood, Life of service for a better way of life.

  24. Maomer. Definitely Maomer. The next game will most likely focus heavily on the Aldmeri Dominion. The sea elves are their ancient enemies, and there is no way that they have ignored the last century and a half of the Altmer gaining power in Tamriel. I have a theory that their inclusion in ESO was meant to introduce them "lightly" to the more casual fanbase so their arrival in the main series doesn't feel completely out of nowhere. I think they're the perfect race to add. They aren't gone like the Dwemer or Snow Eves. They aren't completely detached and weird like the Akaviri or Sload. Seeing one in a setting that takes place a few years after a major invasion (or something) would not be any more out of place than seeing friendly Orcs in Morrowind. Whats more is that they bring something new to the table. They have their own look that's not over-the-top, they have awesome snake/sea-themed architecture and culture that are every bit as unique as the main ten races, and they bring new magics and abilities that would join the existing ones without overpowering them (like the Nords' thu'um, which probably never saw large-scale light of day because a race of tongues is unbalanced). Second choice would be the Imga. I wouldn't play as one, but they just seem so hilarious. Maybe if Bethesda brought them in, people would laugh at them instead of the Bosmer, who in turn could finally get the serious treatment they deserve.

    I want to see how the rebels go about rebelling. And how they manage to operate given the Brotherhood's resources and manpower. I'm pretty excited about the main plot and how it might resolve. In the greater Wellstone area, I'm curious about how these settlements interact and what life is like under the Brotherhood.

    I like the obscure and weirder aspects of TES. It makes it much more interesting than the typical fantasy fare. Though I can't say I read much of that stuff simply because I don't have enough time to try and decipher it. Since we can choose our own canon, in my canon everyone is actually a time traveling robot. Especially Mila.

  27. I think fans tend to severely overestimate the presence of the Eight/Nine Divines worship in Skyrim, while simultaneously underestimating the prominence of the Nordic gods. It's easy to overlook the fact that Shor, even today, is the most revered god in Skyrim by far. Almost all Nords swear by him, and live their lives with the ultimate goal of ending up in Sovngarde. There are no temples or shrines to Shor (or other Dead Gods, Tsun and Stuhn) because Sovngarde is supposed to be his only temple. People don't pray to him because he doesn't care about all that. Shor is honored through blood and might, not prayer or charity. The only gods we see getting lots of fanfare in Skyrim are Talos, Mara, Dibella, and Kynareth. Lots of fans seem to think this means that the Nine dominate the land, but in truth, Mara and Dibella were Nordic Hearth Goddesses long before they were Imperial, and the way they are worshipped in this game is notably different from how they are in Cyrodiil. Kynareth is virtually indistinguishable from Kyne (who also appears a lot), and I suspect the younger name was adopted in Whiterun because it is a diverse hub city and they wished to appeal to outlanders. Talos is a Nordic god. He just came later, but is fully acknowledged as having joined the old pantheon. Arkay is a latecomer as well, and the Nords accept him because he fills a role that was previously not taken in the Nordic pantheon. On the flip side, true Imperial gods have virtually no presence in Skyrim. How many characters worship or even mention Julianos or Stendarr (besides the Vigilants)? Even Akatosh, the chieftain of their pantheon, has almost no presence except in Solitude's Temple of the Nine, which was built specifically for that purpose. That said, I 100% agree with you and Centurion that if the Roscrean Druids, foreigners, are allowed to come into Skyrim and go after people who do not bend to their beliefs, they will face greater opposition than they can handle. Haafingar is the most powerful hold save perhaps for Eastmarch, and it also happens to have a very large population of true Nine worshippers. There would be trouble. What makes this more serious is that the Roscreans beliefs don't even coincide in full with traditional Nordic ones. It's an all-round dangerous idea. Awesome piece. I agree, this is a good choice.

    I work closely with AA and was honestly really surprised that this man's story "ended" as happily as it did, with his life improving and experts suspecting that his depression and illness subsiding to a degree. It's tragically common for people with such deep inner turmoil to hit their rock bottom and then never seek the help they need to get out of it, and then eventually get themselves killed. He was very fortunate to have a friend and mother who cared so much. The girlfriend's response to it all was one of the most admirable things in that article to me. It takes a special kind of person to be completely patient and understanding with someone who is so filled with pain and, in his specific case, extremely closed-off about it. She must really love him. The messed up part is that it really shouldn't be a burden for people like her and his mother to bear alone. As you said, if we or any nation are willing to send people into a war, some of whom will do and experience things that we can't even fathom, then we should have the decency to recognize what they might've gone through for us, and how a simple "Thanks, now have a good life and enjoy the discounts at certain restaurants." isn't going to just make those experiences go away. And your example with your uncle is even more aggravating, because he was a really getting care, and he was led to believe he could rely on it, and in the end it proved to be sub-par and failed him, which is a sad example of a serious problem. I'm sorry to hear that happened to your family.

    For me, Reinhardt. He's very simple to use, and always a help to the team. And when you get better at the game, you can get a decent amount of kills with him despite being rather slow and what most consider to be a backup hero for the other more flashy characters. If you switch from defensive to offensive with him, it's very easy to catch people off guard. Yesterday in 3v3 my teammates all died and it was just me vs a junkrat and a Gengi, and I managed to charge kill the junkrat pretty quickly by sneaking. Yes I sneaked with a giant knight, lol. The Gengi was luckily weakened in his fight with our Pharah, but I didn't know that until my friend told me he was pretty much a one hit kill. I was holding up my shield at the time trying desperately to hold off all his quick strikes, then when he mentioned that Gengi had no way to heal himself, I said, "Oh really? Well in that case..." and as soon as my shields broke, I let out that hammer blast long range attack and killed Gengi from his perch on the roof and ended the game

    I would suggest that, once you get a good handle on the game, you try to find a defense, tank, and support hero you like as well. That way you can adapt to whatever your team needs. For Genji, Winston works really well. For Mei Roadhog works, since he has a ton of health and can heal himself and does massive amounts of damage.

    I don't know how many different people I did that to on the whole, but that second attack killed two people at once, lol. The charge knocked Mei off the cliff as well as the Bastion guy I took with me I couldn't even rage at that, I'd just watch in disbelief, and eventually laugh because that's some smart thinking, if I do say so myself, lol. Fastest way to stop a threat, and we took the point after that too. Mei, Bastion and D.Va cause a lot of hell in the objective points.

    This actually pisses me off, it was a lot cooler to think of the force having a hand in your ability to weild a Jedi's lightsaber. It should at least remain an explanation on how they deflect laser blasts because I guarantee no normal person can do that shit no matter what training they receive. I'm still going with the original explanation. **** disney. Edit: Though existence of one doesn't negate the other, so long as they don't flat out say it's just them studying eachother's forms rather than the force helping. If they did then yea, **** 'em.

    I also liked TFA and agree Rogue One is better. I think you'll like it. I understand their motivation for basically rebooting the franchise for a new generation. After the shit that was the prequels, they needed a firm foundation before they could really do anything, and TFA is definitely that. Maybe not great, but certainly better than the prequels while introducing the new cast with the old. I personally liked the characters, though I do wish Finn had a little more background to his character. Rey is interesting because her background is mysterious, and how Ben became Kylo is something I'm anxious to learn, as well as what Luke's role in that was. I also think the depictions of Han and Leia make more sense then them being a happily married couple, and was glad they made their family dysfunctional As for the Sith and the obvious good vs. evil narrative, I just don't think we're going to get any deviation from that in the main movies. Star Wars is inherently about good vs. evil. It's a fairy tale, almost, in its simplistic moral motivations. The main movies won't deal with anything deeper than that, though I do have hope for the anthology films being able to make the conflict less black and white. All that said, I think you'd like Rogue One a lot more than TFA. It's a lot different and hits on some of the themes we don't get in the main movies.

  46. Man that'd be hilarious. I'd imagine his response to a three word dragon aspect shout would be priceless. I wish there was more acknowledgement of the thu'um in general. If the four guilds recognized it somewhat, it would make you rising to the top of their ranks so easily much more realistic, because who wouldn't replace their dead boss with the Last frickin' Dragonborn when the option is there. Sadly, it never really comes up at all outside of the MQ and DLC.
