360 Degrees of News Coverage
« on: March 18, 2014, 03:04:45 AM »
Having observed western media coverage of the Ukraine crisis, I was mildly amused by the Russian rhetoric.

It seems Russians have taken a liking to liveleak, and browsing the Ukraine crisis there revealed that their rhetoric goes like this: "NATO puppets in Western-Ukraine sends Neo-nazi thugs to attempt coup in... <insert location>"

Joke on late night show, 95% of residents of the Crimea voted to join Russia and the other 5% were given a second chance to vote correctly.

In other news, the chinese media is comparing first ladies. The US first lady vs. the Chinese one... Now this is unbiased, eh? Hehehe.

The world's newly appointed "mighiest nation" (financially) also has military news, with dramatic photos of their armed forces:

Let the world know their might, and their population adore their heroes.

Next I think I will take a look at the African perspective.

Well, this sounds promising.

Russia signals concern for Russians living in Estonia

Pan-Slavism didn't work out so great in 1914, why try it again a century later?

Crimea river :P

Hey, that's a legitimate "concern"! And Latvia and Lithuania are next on the list of countries Putin is concerned about.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

It is the old game of justifiable reasons for war.

I guess Putin got tired of all the revolutions in their former satellite nations, and now he wants it all back.
