A "relief" is like a painting, but the image is formed with carving or sculpting instead of pigment. A "stark relief" would be one where the image stands out, well, starkly against the background material. » 3/14/15 5:55pm 3/14/15 5:55pm

I had the love interest of one of my players turn out to be a bronze dragon, and the quirks of brass and copper dragons (conversation and pranks) make them great for non-violent encounters or just annoy your players.

I wanted one of these so bad in high school. This and a Porsche 928. And a Countach. And a 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint convertible. 27 years later, maybe I should get at least one of them... » 2/22/15 1:36pm 2/22/15 1:36pm

No, the last thing Spider-Man should be is an alien squirrel-bird who has lived immortally inside a toilet for 93 years and only learned about human culture through farts. That would have absolutely nothing to do with Spider-Man at all, and would make a terrible story. » 2/12/15 8:59am 2/12/15 8:59am

Nah. Miles would require an origin story, and I think the last thing anyone wants to see is an other Spider-Man origin story, much less one featuring a completely different character. Peter you can just throw in fully-formed because everyone knows his story. Radioactive spider. Uncle Ben. Power/Responsibility. Aunt… » 2/10/15 12:39am 2/10/15 12:39am

You could say that about any part of the vaccine, including the water. Water on its own is cytotoxic in the blood stream, causing hemolysis. To prevent that, salt is added, which is lethal in high enough doses on its own. In fact, the very act of inserting a metal object into your body can be pretty damn lethal, but… » 2/06/15 4:30pm 2/06/15 4:30pm

I'd just like to point out that many of the states in which measles is spreading, including California, Arizona, and Utah, naturopaths, quacks who among other things discourage vaccination, are considered licensed healthcare providers and thus have to be covered by insurance under the Affordable Healthcare Act. This… » 2/04/15 12:03pm 2/04/15 12:03pm

And the Talledaga was made to beat the Charger 500, which was made to beat the Galaxy 500, which was made to beat the Max Wedge Polara, which was made to beat....... » 2/03/15 1:56pm 2/03/15 1:56pm

This guy is definitely doing a bit. He's just checking too many boxes, presenting basically what a kid would think a paranoid schizophrenic angry gamer would look like. And that's probably exactly what he is. A kid, I'll bet still in high school. He stays in character, though probably not as much as you think, because… » 2/03/15 3:20am 2/03/15 3:20am

There doesn't have to be a main Spider-Man. If they do this right, then Peter Parker will finally get to grow up, get married, and be a big time hero like the other Avengers, not dealing with the street level, teenage outsider stuff anymore. Miles would simply take on the classic Spider-Man drama. » 1/23/15 3:45am 1/23/15 3:45am

Well, a handgun bullet has about the same energy as a good punch (trading mass for momentum, but doing about the same amount of work), so assuming that the shrinking processes doesn't weaken his bones, Ant Man would actually punch holes in people's skulls. » 1/08/15 2:30pm 1/08/15 2:30pm
