Re: PAX to implement "Diversity Lounges"

It sounds like you're arguing in favor of Mike's statement...? Sorry, I thought you were asking a question. Okay, that's not an argument I'm interested in having. (And I'd be interested in seeing sources for your statements about prostate cancer and HPV. From what I can tell, they're not limited by ...

Re: PAX to implement "Diversity Lounges"

Chromosomes are a terrible basis for sex. First, because most people seem to think that there are only two kinds of sex chromosomes (XX and XY), but there are actually a lot of variations: X, XX, XY, XXY, XYY, XXX and many, many more. Also, even if someone's chromosomes would indicate one particular...

Re: RPG World Building

There are generally two schools of thought in RPG setting construction: "start big" or "start small". When you start small, you might only have what the PCs are currently exploring -- everything else gets developed as you go. Maybe you prepare for the next session's travels a wee...

咱们来聊一下中文吧!

有没有别人能说中文?应该有吧... 想不想一起练习? 我只会普通话/国语,别的方言讲不通,但是繁體字我也能寫能看,文言文亦可通!若有兴趣,尽量说吧!

If there are Japanese speakers here, there must be folks who can converse in Chinese, right?

The important thing is to know yourself and think things through. That can happen quickly, or it can happen slowly. Speed isn't really the issue; self-knowledge is.

I normally have the women as the hero if I have to choose a character in an RPG. E.G Femshep or Vaultgirl in Fallout. Actually I play most of my roles as women. Mostly because i...
