Ancient Aliens is another possibility, but again it depends on your setting and any themes you may want to possibly explore.

The corporate trend of mitigating liability is just giving up the totalitarianism and letting products be unhackable.
Yeah, I'm sure Equifax is really shaking in their boots right now. Remember when Target got breached and hackers got access to around 40 million credit card numbers? The company nearly went bankrupt due to angry—wait, no, nothing like that happened.

The real situation is a lot more like the old Lily Tomlin sketch:
>We don't care. We don't have to. We're the Phone Company.
http://snltranscripts.jt.org/76/76aphonecompany.phtml

I own a smart television. I don't use any of its smart features. The reason for this is that I actually read many of the contracts I agree to— not all of them, or even most of them, but many of them. (Banks and medical institutions screw you over the hardest. And there's a night-and-day contrast between Steam and Good Old Games; if you're at all concerned about your rights, opt for the latter over the former.) My Samsung TV came with an arbitration clause which was supposed to direct you to an opt-out URL. However, whoever wrote the EULA forgot to include the URL, and I never found it. I don't think anybody else noticed.

>>55501776
There must be SOME reason. Damned if I can figure out what it is, though.

>>55503100
Thank you, that was hilarious.
>>
>>55503663
Target did lose money. And the change has not occurred overnight yet. It's an ongoing struggle as companies demand totalitarian control but constantly get bit in the ass by their own methods. So at present not every item from every company has open connections. Time goes by, connections increase, one is compromised in a major way, connections decrease. The only way to make the problem entirely go away will be when corporations finally give up and stop trying to literally control every aspect of everyone's lives.

And those EULAs and TOSs stopped being viable in court about a decade ago.

ICDs are pretty cool real life example of live extension augment. They really can save your heart from going VF, so technically someone having ICD is at less risk of dying from sudden cardiac death than a baseline person would be. Of course that's assuming the implantee has non-damaged heart which is very rare because usually VF only occurs in badly damaged hearts.
>>
I've been thinking of a group augment the last few days. I work on naval ships and a lot of times I have to work blind with another dude. We have to rely on touching each others hands and generally shitty directions from each other. This augment would allow someone else to control your limbs through a wireless connection. A person would have to allow the connection to happen in the first place. But if only one guy can see, but needs four hands, he's got them.

I've done a couple of these so far and some folks have enjoyed them, so I figure that I'll try one more and see if we get anything different this time.

First attempt was rather successful with Naya Dinosaurs, second was a shaky but functional UB Pirates. Let's see what we get this time.

What's the first pick?

Heh, you've got only 3 ways to produce treasure, so going for this treasure heavy strategy may not turn out that well. Also, without said treasure coming in more frequently, splashing thoes red cards might be more difficult than it's worth.

I am doing a campaign with some friends and I want it to have a pixelated aesthetic about it.

Does anyone have some ideas about things I could use to make neat/nice miniatures?

I don't wanna use Perler-beads and I don't have a 3D printer.

I really wanna do something mildly-sturdy and small, so papercraft is less-than-ideal too.

Thanks for any ideas!

See if your city has a workshop with a 3D printer you can use - there's at least one in my city. Granted. it's fucking in the middle of Silicon Valley.

>>55508864
If you have the time/creativity Lego works and you can glue all the pieces together.

3D printing stores/centers usually sell their services out, but you'd have to have one near you and be able to make the CAD file for each character/mini.

You could make pixel art, print it out, and cut it to fit on cardboard or some other sturdy material.

Isn't that because the VoG was their attempt by Vex of the past, present, and future to unite their efforts? It would seem that Vex of all time periods have their own problems to deal with, probably still fighting the Darkness.

>>55508293

Also possible. Even the Vex can't simulate Light. It seems like Atheon's defeat is akin to the confounding of Oryx's Sword Logic: The Guardians, with their Light, have somehow fucked with the structures and rules they've built so hard that they've proven all their efforts, theorems, and truths to be wrong.

That's ultimately what Destiny is about when it comes to boss showdowns like this: defeating a major entity is a decisive argument in a debate, and each mission leading up to it builds that fatal proof.

>>55508344
>Isn't that because the VoG was their attempt by Vex of the past, present, and future to unite their efforts? It would seem that Vex of all time periods have their own problems to deal with, probably still fighting the Darkness.

There's also the fact that in one time line they do lose to the Hive.

The Vex arn't very imaginative and rely heavily on being able to simulate outcomes to find the one that favors them greatly. Even though they have comparible levels of power they're sort of like the Borg in that they don't have any sort of creative learning or even interest in it and are forced to re-act in a lot of instances. That said, they could always be playing the long con and acting in certain ways for their own benefit but who knows how far that actually goes but I suppose we'll really see when the Osiris DLC drops.
>>
>>55508344
>>55508422
The problem with the Vex I think, is that they cling far too tightly to their "Pattern". Their belief is that -everything- can be explained through the Pattern, Everything. That all of the secrets of the multiverse will be opened up to them through the might of the Pattern. And it is this that blinds them to other potential outcomes, or solutions to their problems.
>>
>>55508590

The unexplainable being the Light and Dark, which seem to confound everyone. The Hive embraced the Dark, as we see now the Cabal is seizing the Light, and the Vex seem unable to grapple either substance. Then there's the Fallen who will cling to anything they can get their hands on. Shit, they even have extra arms, which might be some symbolism of that fact in and of itself.
>>
>>55508725
It's kinda hilarious how pretty much every other race barring the Vex themselves has at the very least -some- understanding of the two principle forces governing their universe, and directly benefit from them. The Vex are unable to comprehend how these two magical forces work however, and actively break themselves down trying to fathom them.

Hearthstone is the most new-player unfriendly. The paywall is absurd.

MTG is going to have a closed beta of their new attempt at an online/mobile client for their game, called MTG Arena. Signing up is free but idk how long it'll take for them to let people in/when the time frame is.

Across all online CCGs, it pays to get in early. The grind is built such that only people playing from early on can ever really do well in the game without sinking tons of money into them.

"Nurgle's Rot claims the thread" Edition

For all your questions on Dark Heresy (1st and 2nd Editions), Rogue Trader, Deathwatch, Black Crusade, and Only War.
Not the wargame, not Chapter Master, not Space Hulk. Inquisitor is okay, but not many people know about it.

Not sure between starting Dark Heresy 1e and 2e? Pick 2e.

>a native house might make Karybdis feel too "civilized" and not enough like a wild frontier
Agreed. In my opinion, the Knights should emphasize that crusader vibe. They could also be questing for suitably epic prizes(Vault of Hades or other treasures/knowledge) and offeringselling their services to righteous and chivalrous causes. Also, slaying fucking DRAGONS, because if I had a fuckhuge mecha styled as a knight, I would salivate at the chance to kill a space dragon.

So I'm about to start GMing a small squad-based sci-fi military campaign set in the near future. It's a relatively grounded affair, with the players taking part in some proxy wars in Africa after the collapse of a global government.

Are there any resources you guys could point to for a modernish military campaign for your standard troops?

This all sounds pretty awesome and kind of gets around some of what I was looking for. Basically, the setting is after the collapse of the Earth Government of the Universal Century of Mobile Suit Gundam.

Unable to weather the political and social upheaval caused by continuous calls for independence, rebellions, and terrorist attacks from a unified group of space colonies, the United Earth Government collapsed, with the strongest concentrations of political and military power vying for power and redrawing political boundaries. (Basically the former political powers that be were fucking done dealing with the colonies and their shit, and they found it in their best interest to splinter into proper nation states).
