Re: Explain your avatar!

My avatar is Jack Snipe, Foolamancer extraordinaire, from the webcomic Erfworld . I forgot about this comic! Time to go archive diving. It's my favorite non-episodic comic out there. If you only read the ones hosted on GitP, you're in for a treat. The comic has its own site now, along with a new il...

Re: Best and Worst Discworld

My favorite was Night Watch . Vimes was an amazing character even before that book, but he topped himself there. Some close runners-up would be Guards! Guards! , Interesting Times , Lords and Ladies , Reaper Man , Thud! , and Hogfather . My least favorite was Pyramids . I just... didn't enjoy it, fo...

Re: Pen and Paper: Play by post

If you guys are interested in Savage Worlds , I would like to heartily recommend Deadlands: Reloaded . It's a setting for the Savage Worlds system. Think Wild West fantasy horror steampunk. The Civil War ended in a draw, magic is real, monsters are rampaging all across the American west, the Native ...

It's a shameless plug for Stephen R. Donaldson's epic fantasy series The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever.

Re: Recommend a book

I don't know if they've been recommended yet, but Lord of Light, by Roger Zelazny, and the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett are pretty much the greatest books ever written.

Re: Gamers: The inverted Y-axis poll

Flight sims only. I don't care if you think it's more "realistic" when the y-axis is inverted. I'm used to playing with it normal, and I don't care to take the time to switch to inversion. There's no point. It doesn't magically make the game easier or anything.
