Another potential take on the ending: "Everything was clear to me then." Sounds like the computer may have reached transcendence, and so it killed itself directly thereafter (after the appropriate number of flops, which wouldn't take long for an advanced future computer). Maybe that explains the sudden end? Anyways, this was a cool read. Go to Comment

I like this, but I am partial to pirate stuff on here. Building a nautical themed world with this as a major cornerstone would be fantastic fun. Go to Comment

I am an Economics PhD student, and I love this. It is a loving cross between the Ferengi and Adam Smith's "Invisible Hand", and I fully support it. Turning commerce into a religion is just such a brilliant idea, and one that I am surprised doesn't happen more in fantasy settings. Given how important the idea of trade is to human civilization, you would expect to see more gods of trade and commerce floating around. But I digress, and I love this sub. Go to Comment
Non-Euclidean Architecture: Part 2

sverigesson's comment on 2012-12-16 09:55 AM
I was waiting for this! Probably the best part (to me anyway) was the talk about manifolds. The difference between global and local properties is a very important topic in topology, and you can come up with some pretty crazy stuff. I'm tempted to create a dungeon that is a double torus or a Klein bottle or such, simply because of this submission. Bravo, very well done. Go to Comment

Wow, I didn't realize that this was supposed to be a futuristic Destro until you mentioned Amerikka Command... man, had me going. Anyways, I liked this quite a bit. Not the most original sub, but solid nonetheless. I particularly enjoyed the description of combat in cyberspace. Go to Comment

There are a few awkward spots in this sub, but then I remember "We are being narrated to by a small town girl who has seen her share of strange things," and I realize that it works. This is equal parts silly, interesting and creepy. Way to go! Go to Comment
Non-Euclidean Architecture: Part 1

This is something special. It's one thing to just say "The space is non-Euclidean" and leave it at that. But that doesn't really accomplish anything. Looking at it from a scientific and mathematical perspective is the way to go. This definitely belongs among the pantheon of great subs. Congrats. Go to Comment

Gah! Didn't even recognize this as MMPR, even though I was obsessed with it as a kid! All in all, I like this idea. Turning it from a bunch of kids protecting their town (what was up with that, anyway, can't find better targets?) to a desperate fight for the entire planet makes this work, I think. Go to Comment

I'm just detail oriented, that's all. But I was glad to help. I may even take a try at this myself! Seems like it could be fun. And now there's a score to beat! Obsession... to beat others... rising! Go to Comment

sverigesson's comment on 2012-06-01 05:59 PM
You know, I'm probably going to keep finding these:

The queen doesn't want her(I'm sure this is already covered by her massive amounts of X's) or the King to sit next to beautiful women.

I assume that the King must be in chair 1, and the queen must be next to him?

Perhaps married women shouldn't want the twins next to their husbands?

That's all I have for now, after a slightly more thorough read through. Hope it helps! Go to Comment

Haha, alright, so basically the king can handle his wife's wrath, eh? I like it. And yeah, that would be a funny twist; let the players think they can put the king somewhere else to maximize his effect, but have him always steal seat number 1. I love it! Go to Comment

As an economist (we love optimization!), I think this is great, and I am tempted to give this a try. However, the pdf is a little confusing. In particular, the legend doesn't correspond to the labelling in the chart, and some of the colors change (such as = being sometimes dark green, light green or blue, and switching from + labelled with colors to +1 or +2 in different parts). And what's the difference between black and red names? Also, from a cursory read of the list of Stuff Dinner Party Guests, I feel like you left out some of the other special conditions, like that the Pembertons must be seated next to each other, and that the King wants Clay next to one of his female relatives. Also, how do you score these extra conditions, like the queen wanting the prince away from women, or the matriarch wanting to be in seats 7 or lower? Just some questions that might help you clean up the presentation, but otherwise, the idea of putting this into an adventure is awesome! Go to Comment

This is awesome. Just awesome. My favorite part is the man himself, Davy Jones. Mysterious, powerful... great character, and a great sub!

This is no huge submission, but it hits that sweet spot of near perfection. It really makes me want to know more about this world and the people that inhabit it. Tell us more!

Keep in mind that almost every solid substance is technically a "frozen" liquid. So, limiting it to ice seems to be the best answer to this issue. Still, I love this idea. Go to Comment

As a fan and sometime scholar of the history of guns and firearms, this makes for a convincing history of a cannon that, while never actually having been invented, very well could have been in an alternate history. I love this. Go to Comment

I'm guessing West is towards some secret government research facility... So instead of burying the teleportation research, they're actually stealing it, those G-men bastards! Go to Comment
