Modification Help / Print Tags (Large Image)

These are (almost all) of the tags used for event prints and messages in Blockland. I don't have an on-hand reference that I can refer to when doing eventing, so I'm posting this topic.

I hope other people can find use for it, too.

Link for the uninitiated

I liked messing around with spongebob audio in audacity as practice for sound design and I ended up with a tiny playlist of spongebob clips. I posted a topic because the playlist had 58 videos and I thought somebody might get a kick outta it.

Now it has 1,200 videos and the playlist has about 850,000 individual views. Just sharing it again because I know people will enjoy it. I tried to keep unedited videos out as much as possible, but there may be a couple edited ones.

I have a feeling that the last topic didn't garner enough attention, because I am very interested in breakfast. What's your favorite cereal brand?

Games / Dungeons & Dragons Megathread

Dungeons & Dragons?
Adventurers beware!


"The first Dungeons & Dragons game was played back when Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson chose to personalize the massive battles of their fantasy wargames with the exploits of individual heroes. This inspiration became the first fantasy roleplaying game, in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This new kind of game has become popular over the years, and D&D has grown to include many new ways to experience worlds of heroic fantasy.

The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. You can also explore the world of Dungeons & Dragons through any of the novels written by its fantasy authors, as well as engaging board games and immersive video games. All of these stories are part of D&D."

Q&A

"Is D&D free?"
There's plenty of free, online resources like the 5etools, or the Pathfinder OGC.

"Where do I start?"
Check out Geek & Sundry's "Critical Role" for inspiration. Campaigns are hard to get up and going due to the varying amount of creativity it requires. Read the 5e SRD and make an account on roll20, then gather together your friends. You'll be able to do something fun without that much effort!

Is being a Dungeon Master (DM) hard?
It requires a fair bit of management and creative thinking, but it's about as hard as you make it. Managing a hack & slash dungeon crawling campaign is a very simple and easy place to start.

Where do I find players?
From personal experience, as a new DM you want to run a campaign most likely with a new party. Gather your friends who have never played D&D into a party and run something, you'll all learn from each other.

How do I get good at telling a story?
You could browse tvtropes some and familiarize yourself with fiction tropes. Watch other people run campaigns, take note of how information is presented. Look into various homebrewed D&D modules and figure out how other people designed settings & campaigns.

A goldfish suffering from swim bladder disease has been given a new lease on life by an aquarium worker.

According to Derek of the San Antonio Aquarium, the fish had suffered a life-long bladder disease, caused by deadly parasites. The fish had sunk to the bottom of the fishtank, and began to starve.

The disease affected the goldfish's ability to float, so Derek set out to devise a "One-of-a-king wheelchair" for his beloved goldfish.



Quote from: Derek
I got some air line tubing that people usually use in their tank and just placed it around the goldfish. I added some valves to the bottom of it, which acted as a 'chair' to prop him up. I added weights to the bottom of the 'chair' and something to keep him afloat on top, and slowly removed pieces until I achieved just the right buoyancy to make it easy for him to swim around without feeling like he's dragging around a chair.

Quote from: Also Derek
Think of goldfish as the pugs of the fish world, pugs have unique features due to the way they were bred, but it also causes them a lot of medical problems - same with goldfish!

Ever since the invention of the state-of-the-art wheelchair, Derek's goldfish can swim freely once again, despite their rare bladder disease.

I got into a long-winded debate with some people about loveuality and over-representation on the internet, and specifically this forum. We decided that I should make a poll to see the actual results. What is your loveuality, forum?
