Re: Darkest Dungeon Mafia: A Singular Strike! (Night 3)

Rounding the corner, you come face-to-face with a horrific fiend. It looks a skeleton, clad in some ancient raiment, carrying a chalice of some foul-smelling swell in one hand, and a bloody knife in the other. The fiend sees you and cackles in terrible glee, advancing upon you. You turn to flee, bu...

Re: Darkest Dungeon Mafia: A Setback (Night 2)

You attempt to retrace your steps, seeking egress, but the ancestral halls seem to conspire to keep you in. The turns look much the same; the corridors seem to end abruptly in yawning pits or unassailable walls. You take refuge in a small alcove, hoping to relight your failing torch. In the flicker...

Re: Free floating "gas dwarf"?

From that article, if I understand the intro correctly, it is the non-gaseous core that is 0.2 Earth masses minimum, and the actual atmosphere would be extra on top of that. It also says proportional to T^1.5, so the small gas planets would have to be bitterly cold, and nowhere near the sun. Yes, c...
