    [–] [Spoilers C2E42] It IS Thursday! C2E42 live discussion MrNotSoBright 4 points ago in criticalrole

    The book is on Caleb's person, and that is likely what was being searched for

    [–] [SCP] What is SCP? MrNotSoBright 6 points ago in AskScienceFiction

    To take it a step further, SCP is an exploration into a profoundly secretive and extraordinarily dangerous world that exists within our own. We don't see evidence of these "SCPs" because The Foundation secures them, contains them, then protects them from the rest of the world (or, in some cases, the world from them). The Foundation has facilities and compounds all over the planet, and their influence reaches into the highest echelons of nearly every government on Earth.

    In addition to simply containing these curiosities, they also study them in an attempt to better understand future anomalous items they may come across. Indeed, some SCPs are used in the containment and continued research of certain others.

    I submitted a request! You're super cool for doing this, even if I'm not chosen.

    [–] How knights fought during the 14th century. MrNotSoBright 8 points ago in videos

    My understanding is that being trampled in battles was rather common, especially when in tight formations.

    Cavalry are generally used for flanking maneuvers and for running down enemy units attempting to break out of formations or flee. Cavalry were common, but they wouldn't really be those earth trembling masses of horse riders like in Lord of the Rings. They were tactical units and powerful force multipliers, but on their own they were large targets that do poorly fighting against unmoving masses of combatants.

    Archers were largely about "thinning the herd". You can hit targets as they approach, you can hit the rear of units as they clash with your front line, unable to fight back, and you can shoot them as they flee. They were horrible for morale on the receiving end.

    [–] [W40k] I've been recruited into the Astartes, but I have a terrible secret MrNotSoBright 39 points ago in AskScienceFiction

    Pleasures of the flesh are inconsequential to an Astartes. Sexual orientation is meaningless. When you have completed your metamorphosis into a full-blown Space Marine the very notion that you could love anything as much as you love the thrill of combat and the righteous knowledge that the Emperor is proud of your service would be damn-near unthinkable.

    In addition, you are unlikely to see any glistening chests (save those blown open, glistening with blood), nor amazing eyes (save those flying through the air). Your allies will be heavily armored and helmeted, and your enemies will be monstrous beyond reason.

    I think you'll be fine

    [–] [Spoilers C2E37] MEGATHREAD: Opinions and/or Feedback about the C2E37 live show MrNotSoBright 17 points ago in criticalrole

    Seriously. I don't think the audience was particularly annoying like a lot of people seem to be saying. I felt like a lot of their reactions simply mirrored my own

    [–] [Spoilers C1E69] [Spoilers C2E35] Episode 69 connection to C2 MrNotSoBright 7 points ago in criticalrole

    I think it was hinted at a few times in episodes, but was outright confirmed on a Talks Machina by Matt. She worked for the Dwndalian military as a weapon designer, but it was discovered at some point that she was dabbling in human experimentation using magically-enhanced diseases. This was apparently a major no-no in the Empire, and she fled before she could be arrested.

    [–] [Spoilers C2E34] Is It Thursday Yet? Post-Episode Discussion & Future Theories! MrNotSoBright 6 points ago in criticalrole

    I have a character in the home game I run with a Periapt of Wound Closure, and this is the exact thought process I went through when deciding what happened when he started drowning inside a water elemental.

    [–] Gift for my DM MrNotSoBright 1 points ago in DnD

    Oh wow, that's going to be a real treat!

    [–] Gift for my DM MrNotSoBright 3 points ago in DnD

    If you're looking to go pretty cheap, there's the Roll 4 Initiative Castle Keep DM Screen and Dice Tower. One of my players bought it for me, and I like it a lot. It's made of cardboard, but I haven't had a single problem with it and I've been using it for about a year.

    Aside from that, metal dice are always an amazing treat as a DM. Reaper Bones minis are a great idea, even if it's something obscure. If you give them the tools, a DM will find a reason to use them. A campaign module could be a great gift, even if they don't plan on running it, as it can provide a plethora of ideas for their own campaigns (Storm King's Thunder, Curse of Strahd, Tomb of Annihilation, etc...). Something like The Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide, Xanathar's Guide to Monsters, or Tales from the Yawning Portal can be great if they don't already have them.

    [–] Afternoon coyote hunting with my new toy MrNotSoBright 2 points ago in GunPorn

    It's probably the Ruger, because the M&P has a big "M&P" logo emblazoned across the magwell.

    Or OP built it custom and it just looks a lot like it.

    [–] [SPOILERS C2E28] Character Motivations. MrNotSoBright 1 points ago in criticalrole

    I had a conquest paladin in the home game that I run for a little while before medical school removed all free time from his life. I guess he's technically still running around out there in the world, just waiting until he can get back into the game.

    He's secretly a paladin of Tiamat that disguises himself as one of Tempus to blend in with society.

    [–] [SPOILERS C2E28] Character Motivations. MrNotSoBright 108 points ago in criticalrole

    If death needs things to live, he should be someone that cultivates life, like a druid.

    [–] Official Discussion - Extinction (2018) [SPOILERS] MrNotSoBright 90 points ago in movies

    I agree that it was clever, but it felt like a clever solution to a problem that shouldn't even exist in the first place.

    Why wouldn't a screen work just as well? A screen doesn't need an extra fuel tank for a spray solution. The system probably uses a lot more power than a screen, is a lot less convenient than a screen (what happens if there's a slight breeze?), and probably a lot more complicated to build and repair than a screen.
