    I was surprised how deep into witch lore Sabrina went honestly. Like they took a good hard look at “real” witchcraft and ran with it.

    [–] [Excerpt and Spoilers: Angron Slave of Nuceria] Snippet about the Two Lost Legions col-fancypants 2 points ago in 40kLore

    The lost and the damned primarchs have always been redacted. The only reason they even write about them is to give fam service to the old ways. Heck, if anything it explains why some successor chapters of IF and UM are so different than their parent legions and how certain mutations arise in them. And with 9 loyalist and 9 traitors, do we really need to know about the other 2? If anything leaving them blank gives everyone something to base their own ideas on.

    Not if you live on a Chapter World. IG can’t pull bodies from Fenris or Nocturne because those populations are under Space Marine jurisdiction. Now someone living on said planet who wasn’t chosen for SM recruitment could volunteer to the IG or AM. But the populations are cordoned off for Astartes recruitment. Interfering with that is how folks rustle space marine jimmies.

    My Vanguard LT pulled that kind of effectiveness not long ago. He stabbed at least 6 chaos boys in one melee round. And just kept on going. I gave home a chaos helmet with knife in it on his base for the show of power

    There is a LANDO system, practiced by Lando the man. And it is all about being a suave gambler who somehow always loses all his investments because Han just had to show up. In the what are now Legends books, dude was getting screwed out of every deal he ever made because of Solo. Dudes a black rabbits foot.

    Say what you will about the man's off topic stuff, but his lore videos are spot on enjoyable.

    True, but there are also large swaths of video game only folks out there either uninterested or unable to find a table top game/group to start. I played video games for years before ever picking up dice. And I know people who game hard and would never play pen and paper for one reason or another. And that is probably the case with all forms of gaming, there are those who cross the hobbies and those who stick to one. I prefer mixing it up among all types as long as I have fun. And games have always, even single player video games, been social for me. As a kid I only played when other kids or someone else was around to switch off with or watch probably 80% of the time. And I would still prefer that, but RPG's and some Shooters make it a little easier to play alone. But a platformer, adventure, or fighting game almost demands of me to have another person.

    Sounds about right, I play it all honestly. PC (Strategy, Shooter, RPG, World Building), Console (RPG, Shooter, Platformer), Hand Held (RPG, Strategy, Platformer), Table Top (40K, D&D, Cthulhu, Board Games), and Traditional (Chess, Checkers, Poker, GO). I don't play any phone games or social media games because I don't spend enough time on them to get there. You know that little update iPhone sends at the end of the week about your screen time? I average 15 min a day, mostly text or email.

    One thing I will always miss: the arcade environment. I used to love going to the mall, putt putt course, or bowling alley and hitting up the arcade section. Pinball, adventure games, fighting games, and all the classics. Plus the 30 min friends and rivals you could make while there. The closest to that has been online shooters for me maybe 3 years ago. Me and some friends played the same shooter regularly and would have randoms in the chat we would talk to and maybe see on again another day or never gain. But I can say for a fact I remember something about all those interactions. That's how I got into D&D actually. The online game kind of died off so I wanted to try D&D locally. Found an AL group and started playing weekly, now we meet at someones house weekly to play some form of Table Top or group game. Gaming has always been very social for me. I didn't really even start to finish single player games until I was in college/late high school unless someone else was there with me. I was a big fan of passing the controller after a death or at a hard part to see who could get past it. I still prefer couch Co-Op when I get the chance.

    And that is the crux of the issue, I play PC, Console, Hand Held, Table Top, Board Game, and Traditional Games (poker, chess, checkers) all with some regular amount to the point that I dedicate a good portion of time to at least one of them weekly. I jump back and forth between them depending on time available, new or old games I want to revisit, and number of people available. It's a mad mad mad mad amount of hobbies. Not including books, occasional comics, shooting, movies, fishing, and travel. Fulfilling for sure though.

    I was under the impression a gamer was a category of game player, or at least used to be. They are the person who plays as often as possible and is always looking for a chance to play. Granted, that was my understanding around 2010 when I first stared hearing the term openly. I never considered myself a gamer, even when I was playing some form of game a couple times a week. I play D&D once a week, console or PC a few times a week, and board games/40K when I get the chance. I just think of my self as someone who enjoys games, but isn't hard core dedicated to the "lifestyle."

    I still don't understand the constant labels and needs to justify who is what on either side, but I am not committed to them beyond personal enjoyment and spending time with others in a social way, so I don't really have a dog in the fight (which is probably the worst kind of term in the Joyful Brightness of the 3rd Millennium).
