Video Games / Star Wars MMO Design (non-SWG players take)
« on: August 29, 2006, 11:05:59 AM »
I would love for someone who has played MMOs, and Pen-Paper, but never tracked or knew anything about SWG to give their take on what THEY would expect from a Star Wars MMO.  I am mainly intrested in a new perspective... Something from people who have not had their ideas colored by the game already out there.  

What Era would you set it in?
How would you deal with Progression?
How would you deal with Jedi?
What about Space?  
What planet or Planets would you set the game on?
Would you include the personalities of the movie?
How would combat work?
How would the economy work?

Everything Else / Blood and Marrow Donation
« on: April 28, 2005, 05:27:15 PM »
 used to donate blood a couple times a year.  However, due to my medical history, I am no longer eligable to donate
At the same time, I have a better understanding of how important those donations are.
My Birthday is May 22.
As a gift, I am asking any who are able, to register with the NMDP for possible Bone marrow donation
Is a list of donation centres, but your doctor can test as well.

Just donate Blood, any local hospital has a schedule when you can come in and donate... And you get free cookies!  

So, Thats what I am asking for for my B-Day, Blood and Marrow <-- FAQ on Blood donation <-- FAQ on Marrow donation

Everything Else / Definition of Terms
« on: January 12, 2005, 11:21:10 AM »
We were having a debate that got off- tangent in Role Playing,  So I thought we could continue it here.

The Thought Police are going to be after me for my thoughtcrime. I know it! I must hide even though Big Brother is watching me. (This is more true then you could possibly know) Since newspeak is all I pretty much have to work with and anything that might contain oldspeak is long since gone from my household, I don't have much of a choice but use a reference that the author may have been politcal/religiously motivated to write about. Since the dictionary is something we can all find and see what better reference to use to in defence of our statement then a definition I decided to use that no one else will have access to. With that being said...

I sincerely apologize for stealing the thread's main topic of in game ethics, and going deeper into what exactly constitutes terrorism.  I can get carried away with a side topic and take it to the exterme. That said if we want to continue and decided what the definition of a terrorist is and a good term for a rebel that is fighting a curropt government, then we should start a new thread. Other than that, let's carry on! Cheers mates.

My point is that one should not feel constrained by the Dictionary deffinition as even Websters can be wrong.  (in matters of Political/belief definition)
A Cat is always a Cat
but The deffinition of Terroism is a definition that is politicaly charged, has plenty of disagreement, and is at the same time, VERY important.  

We need a word that defines the targeted and intentional murder of non-combatants for reasons of evoking an emotional impact that would lead to political change.  
I think that rather than invent a NEW word, we pull "Terroism" away from its Thersaurus brothers and make it a Unique word that means THIS ONE THING.  

Destrucition of Property, Gurellia Warfare, etc... All can be adressed by diffrent terms.  

Let us make "Terroism" a specific word that means a specific thing.  

and YES by wishing it we can make it so, because a guiding force in the shaping of things like definition, is USAGE.  Use the word "Terroism" as a specific term and eventualy that usage will be  recognised and applied
