    To be "online" you need to be logged into the website.

    To be "in chat" you need to be viewing a page that has a shoutbox on it.

    Anyone who is "in chat" is obviously "online" - so if you don't see duplications there, it means that when a person is put into the "in chat" box they are removed from "online." If you seem them duplicated, that answers your question as well.

    Hey Simon, you're not probably thinking about Series 3, but I was wondering if you wouldn't mind telling me your opinion about this idea. I was thinking we could have a card series where Earth is so technologically advanced that humans use Mechanically Advanced Subconscious Kaiju to protect society. I was thinking we could submit some mechanical kaiju and several kaiju that threaten the world for the story.

    Would you be interested in joining in a D&D Campaign run by Wewe?

    I would like to do that, unfortunately I don't have a job to get money but possibly in the near future I probably might be able to, just as long as I don't forget about this place.

    PS. Glad your'e a fan of D&D! I think I got one of the monster guides. I think it was either series 6 or 7.

    How do y'all handle the logistics? What version? When? (PM the answers, don't clutter up the thread)

    It doesn't look like what I consider to be entertaining, or quality.

    There are scenes, which look as if they were each constructed individually. The whole thing seems like it was planned from the start - which means little to no development growth. It's like a rote translation made by people who speak neither the language of origin nor the language of translation.

    In Maladra's bios, there is this sentence: "She can also focus her energy into her “Plasma Accelerator”, adding velocity and range at the cost of damage." For the cost of damage, does it mean Maladra receives damage to focus the energy, or does she reduce the damage she can produce to focus the energy?
    Sorry for my bad English...

    I'd say it's the latter, since it's a matter of transferring energy; if you fired an arrow further into a field, the arrow would encounter more wind resistance which would inevitably slow it down, as well as reduce the impact of hitting the target :writing

    Simon would probably answer your question in less words than mine, so stick with his response by all means :biggrin

    Hey Simon, it just occurred to me that when I bought a set of SPN5 cards about a year ago you included those dope gold-framed kaiju cards that you would only get in the packs I think and that's cool. But when I bought SPN6 Before that since I got sponsored those gold frame cards Weren't with the set I got and that's fine. But I'm just curious that if I put in an order for a set of SPN4 cards would you be able to include those SPN6 gold cards like Saltora and them? It's fine either way I was just wondering if that's even possible or not.

    EDIT: to save room I'll fit a second question here, or whatever it is. If you want or ever wanted someone to go thru the official kaiju pages and correct typos I would Love to do so. I have no idea about how editing that wiki works in terms of permissions but hey if it's convenient I'd love to tidy that up for yah.

    Would it be possible to submit the resigned of the Quacken for a future SPN series?
    I gave him a hair cut.

    I guess I have a lot of general questions, some about the Godzilla trilogy, mostly about the prices of certain tech and mechanics.

    1. Which was more expensive to implement, Rage Attacks or Critical Mass?

    2. Is it cheaper to implement a glowing arena barrier or shield an environment in with terrain?

    3. On the CKC side, if things are up and running again how financially sensible would it be to implement STE style "Special Tricks" for all kaiju? (L2 +R2)

    4. Is it cheaper to employ dated video game style music? Like dating to the original Playstation and older style soundtracks?

    Hi Simon, once you're back from your interstate work-related travels, could you tell me which thread to share a murder-fantasy-mystery novel written up by an acquaintance of mine? I'm not sure whether to post it up in the 'Writer's Guild' thread or not, considering that it has been inactive for quite some time, and I don't want to accidentally necro it (or being labelled as one who did it on purpose).

    Here is the link for anyone who's interested: Tetragram Secrets

    You could probably have just made your own thread for it, if you weren't sure.

    Hmm, that's true. Anyhow, I'll be making a PM targeted at some of the heavy hitters (who are still active here) of the Writer's Guild to see if they'd like to take a look, given the fact that hardly any traffic comes by here these days :thumbsup
