Re: mine sweeping question

If a minesweeping ship is somehow already in a mined sector, for example if it moved there before a treaty was broken or was built there, the sweep mines command could be used to have it sweep that...

Re: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING PMs!

I notice you mentioned in the Dom 3 forum that about 100000 PMs were taking longer than everything else put together. Considering there are over 5 times that many posts alone, plus the user list and...

Re: retrofit query

The order in SEIV is:
Retrofit (must be paid entirely from storage)

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

It is not technically correct to call 12:00 either AM or PM, but the common usage is to match whichever label would be appropriate for 12:01 so that it changes with the hour number. So, I sincerely...

Re: Stealth sattelitees in simultaenous?

Even on a satellite, it's still possible to find it. You just need an "enemy" to provoke combat in each sector of the system. When your two unarmed ships run away from each other in the right...

Re: minefields, mothballs

Once they can afford that many minesweepers and still have a decent combat fleet, yes. Not sending that many minesweepers is just asking for punishment.

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

It is an important distinction, but you've got it the wrong way. If you count by the direction indicated by a 7-hour-behind difference, you cross the international date line and have to jump a day...

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

What a coincidence, I have a family reunion on the same weekend. I will most likely be too busy enjoying the antics (planned and not) of all my many wacky uncles, aunts, and cousins (all on my dad's...

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

As already noted, Toughness and I'm not proficient with plate. I could spend a feat on plate proficiency, but that would require freeing up enough points from strength to boost con to 15. 1 point...

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

4e point buy is on pages 17 and 18 of the PHB. They give both how to generate your own stat array and a list of quite a few premade stat arrays. Just look down the list on page 18 for a set of...

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

Could someone post the full details on how to get on this particular IRC channel? I think I can handle getting and setting up an IRC client on my own, but where do I need to connect to?

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

I would prefer Saturday. My time zone is Eastern US (GMT -5, I think), and any time that doesn't require me to get up too early is fine.

From my understanding of the rules and one actual play...

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

Well, if everyone who has expressed interest plays that's five people - me, Randallw, Nocturnal, you, and JFries. That's already a full size party.

Re: OT: D&D 4e or: Wanna slaughter some minions?

Not quite true. I can read leet, I just don't usually think it's worth the bother because there's too much overlap between the kind of people who use leet and the kind of people I don't want to play...

Re: Random Questions

If the SciFi technology is sufficiently advanced, there is at least justification for some non-inert storage - antimatter ordnance isn't really possible to store in an inert state.

Re: Warning! Do NOT apply XP SP 3!

Looking at the "security expert's blog" capnq posted, that sounds suspiciously similar to the second problem addressed in the blog post. The suggested fix is very simple:
