  1. I've always had a weakness for Celtic and Norse weaponry I like them especially with lots of runic engravings and knotwork on the hilt
  2. What about: German Zweihander Chinese Broadsword Chinese Tai-chi Straightsword
  3. lol, you should have a few more brackets above 21 why not 21-25, 26-34, 34-45, 45+ or something like that
  4. Cool, Klaas! That's what I was hoping to hear from someone here So the motto: Something like- No boundary for a lion?
  5. Just wondering...I myself do not, as far as I know. I'm just about 100% Sicilian, and I'm by no means an expert on history, but Sicily was settled by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, and Carthaginians, right? So I could very well have bloodlines from any of those civilizations, but I can never know. But if I am Carthaginian in descent does that make me an African American? So how many of you have royal/noble lineage? This kind of thing interests me a lot. Please share it with us, and don't make claims up
  6. Your last sentence is very natural but change the "it's" to "is" And remember - "its" is possessive, as in "The cat licked its paws." Whereas "It's" is a contraction of "It" and "is", as in "It's so far away.", or "It is so far away". To use the comma and then the conjunction, "but", the second part of the sentence has to have a subject AND a verb, so you have to say "I love 0 A.D, but the release date IS so far away.
  7. Well basically what I wrote is that if you have two thoughts that could be two different sentences, like: Apples are tasty. Apples have worms. If you wanted to join these into one sentence, you can do it using these "conjunctions" (parts of language that allow you to join thoughts or ideas) Apples are tasty, but apples have worms. OR Apples are tasty but have worms. So you can either use a comma and then a word like "but" (Coordinating conjunction), but then you have to include the subject of the next thing you are joining ("apples" in this case, the green word) OR, you can use a coordinating conjunction (like "but") without a comma, but then you have to leave out the subject of the next thing you are joining, which is "apples", the green word in this example.
  8. Well the topics that the show deals with are unoriginal, but it goes about portraying them in an even more typical way, not going beneath the surface to find innovative ways. It's just too typical for me. Seinfeld was perhaps one of the best shows ever written. Though the show was pretty much about nothing, about real-life, everyday things, the way in which the show painstakingly examined every aspect of everyday life was just hilarious. It looked at life so closely that it was humorous
  9. People who think they are superbly tolerant. Meaningless rhetoric. Superficial/facetious personalities To name a few.
  10. Well here's a point about english and punctuation. Take this sentence from above: There are three independent clauses here, three complete sentences: Two are joined correctly, and one is not - allow me to explain: The three independent clauses are: 1. In Norway we speak Norwegian. 2. No one here understands Norwegian. 3. I have to speak English. Two and three are correctly joined with a coordinating conjunction. Two independent clauses, if joined by a comma, must have a coordinating conjunction after the comma. For instance, take these two independent clauses. Tim likes to wear hockey masks. He doesn't like hockey. So clearly these two sentences contradict eachother, so you could use a comma followed by a coordinating conjunction like "but", "however", or "yet". Note though that you can only use the comma if the two clauses are both independent - in other words, they are complete sentences in themselves, with a subject and predicate. CORRECT: Tim likes to wear hockey masks, but he doesn't like hockey. INCORRECT: Tim likes to wear hockey masks but he doesn't like hockey. INCORRECT: Tim likes to wear hockey masks, but doesn't like hockey. So I've so far talked about joining two INDEPENDENT clauses with a comma, but what happens when you join a dependent clause to an independent clause? For example: Tim likes to wear hockey masks but doesn't like hockey. "Doesn't like hockey" is dependent because it doesn't exist on its own as a sentence, so to join it with an independent clause, that is "Tim likes to wear hockey masks", you use a coordinating conjunction WITHOUT a comma So remember that example above with the three independent clauses? Now you can see what's wrong with it. Here's how that sentence should be: In Norway we speak Norwegian, but no one here understands Norwegian, so I have to speak English.
  11. Wow quite a list. I do listen to music in that scenario described above
  12. Well, I suppose there are a lot of things that make me weird 1. - I stay up until about two everynight working on TLA, because I have a vision of a project, as I think we all do, that I am obsessed with 2. - I listen to rave and techno music, and then I listen to jazz and classical music right after it And when I'm feeling really ambiguous and moody sometimes I will just sit in the darkness with my headphones on - makes my sense of hearing more aware. 3. - I read books on theoretical physics, religion, and philosophy - does this need any explanation?
  13. Nice weapon. *swings his gladius around (reconstruction)*
  14. Descartes Rules for the Direction of the Mind Discourse on the Method Meditations on First Philosophy Objections against the Meditations and Replies The Geometry They're all in one collection. I've never really taken the time to read them, so I'm making it up all at once.
  15. Well, do you want to write/speak real English or Internet English? I'll gladly give you some help if you need it.
  16. Well being a perfectionist, I find that when I do something I dedicate myself to it, which helps others around me as well. Also there is a level of happiness that comes from knowing you've done something to the best of your ability and how much work went into it.
  17. It's his personal project, and I have no idea when he wants to finish it. He's quite busy and usually only works on the weekends.
  18. Hmm. I wanted to do chapter 13 in Wheelock's Latin (reflexive pronouns - exciting! ) and I wanted to start a watercolor/pen and ink still life that I wanted to start yesterday, and the day before that, and so on
  19. Hi, I think you applied for one of the mapping positions a while ago? We're not really looking to expand the team in that area right now since scenario design is so far off. :-/ But welcome here!
  20. Never really thought about that I guess I'm more like Elros, not afraid to take chances with a new kingdom, and he's more like Elrond, lieutenant to another elf.
  21. @ZeZar - We are twins (though not identical, more like Elros and Elrond ) @Eken132 - Yeah, Thangorodrim Is meant to be bigger - walkable except for the entrance, because that way you can have Eagles and Dragons "fly" over it, and he can have fingon rescue Maedhros, etc.
  22. I was bored and made an AoK mod that had a mountain with all sorts of chimneys and mechanical parts replace the onager
