In Moot Member Blogs Hunter and the COTI Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #569 New June 17th, 2019 05:01 PM
Way back in the early 2000s, after I first registered, there seemed like a flurry of people just obnoxiously posting and demanding rights and what not from Hunter and Avery. I mean gamers who had played Traveller and other RPGs or warsims, and had come here hoping to cash in on their hobby and "make millions", so to speak.

Just thinking about it gets me angry. It's like the guy who bought a garage full of comics or scifi/fantasy/comic book paraphanalia, and decided he had waste his time ...More Read More

Mom, in case you're reading my prattle, courtesy of Marc Miller, the Administrative staff of the COTI, and an annual stipen of a few American dollars every year, here are some demonic Dungeons and Dragon's memories. Facsimilie of demon --->

Role Playing Games are a far cry from War Simulations, but are akin to one another in that both have extended rule sets to simulate "real aspects" of real world interaction, such as combat.

My first introduction to Dungeons and Dragons was in ...More Read More

Designed to give the infantry anti-vehicular firepower.

The line troop should not have the FGMP. But one or two in a squad is great for taking out hard targets.
Not according to LBB4:

Tech level 14: A higher proportion of the infantry is equipped with battle dress, and the standard small arm for such troops becomes the PGMP-13.
Tech level 15: Most infantry is by now equipped with battle dress and has converted to the
FGMP-14. The gauss

Ah, kicking back in the old home with my feet on the desk, looking out at blue skies as the sun reflected the lagoon water into my old office with a gentle breeze. It puts a smile on my face.

The only thing better than a tall cool glass of Chocolate Milk, is a tall glass of iced cold pressed Apple Juice. Maybe some chips maybe a slice of pizza or something on the side, and just vegging out as the clouds moved by.

That's when I just blanked out and enjoyed the day, or some really roc ...More Read More

So, I think the first Adventure Seed I posted was about a bronze age world populated by natives that are essentially yard high intelligent Opposums being exploited by a megacorporation. However I can't remember whether the title was simply allegorical (the megacorporation promising heaven on Earth with advanced technology in exchange for slave labor and wages), or whether I had an actual cult created by the megacorporation to better control the hapless Tilans.

This really bugs me. I jot ...More Read More

  #564 New June 10th, 2019 11:13 PM
I was pounding away furiously all last night on the keyboard, and a thought occurred to me, the house used to smell like pine before either my neighbor or the gardeners planted whatever they did outside the office window. A culmination of those plants, the insecticide, whatever plastic or rubber is in the closet, and I'm guessing the soap scent from nearby, has created this really obnoxious odor. I'm thinking I'm going to rip out those plants. I'm in a forested area and prefer the scent of ...More Read More

  #563 New June 10th, 2019 03:58 PM
So apparently the infamous office odor is a combination of the Ant-Be-Gone insecticide I sprayed some weeks back, and some rubber or plastic in the closet. I'm too lazy to go diving in there, but I swear I had everything sealed up in a storage bin. And moreover why the heck is rubber or plastic going bad to create such a reek? It's made it nearly impossible to work in here without the fan going and the window open. I want to get into a real writing binge like I had planned, but, well, if ...More Read More

So, I just had a marathon all night game get thrown ostensibly by a female cosplayer dressed up as Freddy Kruger in her profile. This person deliberately blocked paths of attack, and essentially just threw the game. I've forwarded their profile onto Steam.

In either 1998 or 1999 I was at, and ventured into the forums, being an old Trek and SFB fan. I wandered into a thread addressing the Tholian homeworld, or rather its base, or the base that protected the homeworld in the Milky Way (not the Tholians home galaxy).

A few issues; in the old designer's edition (possibly the zip lock edition too, though I'm not sure) a planet was said to be able to have up to a number of ground bases (a full starbase) for each hex side. Appare ...More Read More

  #560 New June 7th, 2019 08:54 AM
Apparently JetSmarter is up for sale for 20 million, and is under investigation by the FAA and FBI. I don't earn millions. Personally I don't see myself as being worth millions. I will not generate millions for any company. Ergo, I'll probably not be using Lear Jets in the immediate future.

And given the cost of $18k to $5k an hour to ride one of these things, I think it's safe to say that the jet set life style is out of my realm. And even if I had bazillions of dollars (to keep weal ...More Read More
