Re: Incredible game music

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you're watching Radio Dead Air at the moment, Doc? Meanwhile, I just grabbed a copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution from my local Vintage Stock today, and I was immediately awestruck by the game's score. Of particular note thus far is the game's main th...

If it makes you feel better I had a friend who once ate the tinfoil wrapper of a hotdog he bought on a bet. We're still pretty sure that everything that's wrong with him were pre-existing issues before that.

You want to know what the funny thing is, Jester? From that description you wrote on Tumblr you actually nailed the character I make the black-and-white masky thing for. That's pretty damn impressive.

Re: Van is Writing Something! Opinions Needed!

She wasn't really asking whether or not the physics in the world all make sense, just whether the shifters have to know a lot about physics, or whether the physics are just intuitive to them. Which, by your explanation, they are. So the physics are intuitive, whether or not it's a "physics int...

Re: Van is Writing Something! Opinions Needed!

I'd be more interested in hearing about proposed constraints/dangers, since it seems the only one so far is the inability to cheat conservation of momentum/energy. Is the shift instantaneous for the shifter and/or observers? As far as personal dangers it really comes down to mistakes made by the sh...

Re: Van is Writing Something! Opinions Needed!

As for nitpicks, can you grab ahold of someone who's about to shift and go with them, or do they have to make the effort/want to bring you along? Just like how a shifter can take someone with him/her, unwilling or not, via physical contact a person can effectively "hitch a ride" with a sh...

Actually, on the subject of first-time shifters... Shifting itself is a very rare trait that only occurs in humans. The reason that the shifters numbers are "reasonable" across the course of the story is because of what tends to happen to most first-time shifters. Unless trained beforehand...
