1. Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up. -C.S. Lewis. Whenever a brony hater confronts me, I read this quote, and they suddenly disappear. Wise words will always be cherished by those who can see the wisdom in them.

      1. @chiefanchor Why, thank you. =) I truly think it is a deep, amazing quote, and I am glad that other people (ponies, silly me!) think so too. =)

        1. @sebastian1314 It's what I live by, pretty simply put as "I may grow old, but I shall never 'grow up.'"

          1. @chiefanchor This said, 25 and counting, proud to be an '80s kid. '80s and early '90s were the best time to grow up... and now G4 is bringing things back to that level of quality.

                  1. @sebastian1314 Hey, @nerthos was the one to say "And to the head!"

                    1. @chiefanchor Actually, I think aiming to the knee is more powerful... ESPECIALLY if that which you are aiming is a bow...

                  1. @nerthos I'm not talking whole invasional forces,Think more like Battlefield, or a session, small specialized units.

                    Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:25:07 UTC from web
                    1. @carcino Yeah, that's where I fail xD I led the invassions as 40 men divided by groups of five with a leader each who answered to me, while I was at the "generals group" but if you lead a small force, they have to excel at what they do. That's why at tabletop RPGs I don't let other players take decisions in important battles.

                      1. @nerthos The only time I've ever tried DnD we had no board and just kinda used our imagination. I was playing Devil may cry the whole time. it was like... six years ago.

                        Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:28:36 UTC from web
                        1. @carcino The only time I ever played DnD, I managed to bypass an entire battle that was suppose to take hours by crit-rolling a summon whale spell of some sorts, crushing everything.. Ahh lots of lulz were had that day..

                          Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:29:51 UTC from web
                          1. @minti I killed some dude on a horse by spitting in his eye, he feel back onto a rock and had his skull opened. I wondered why I had never played the game before at that point.

                            Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:31:41 UTC from web
                            1. @carcino lolol.

                              Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:32:02 UTC from web
                        2. @carcino In my group we rarely use boards, mostly because the master knows he can't kill me that way. And damn he tries. Only managed to hurt my character badly once xD

                          Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:29:59 UTC from web
                          1. @nerthos Oh

                        3. @carcino I've never played DnD seriously. The only time I played was with family, and we turned it into some absurd... indescribable thing.

                          1. @redenchilada If you ever decide to play anything like it ever again, Ignore 4e and 5e. Pathfinder and 3.5e/3e are the way to go.

                            Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:30:52 UTC from web
                            1. @chiefanchor AD&D 2.0 is way better. With the difficulty rolls from 3.5, the master can do whatever he wants if he's bananased off.

                              Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:33:57 UTC from web
                              1. @nerthos I've had nothing but fun in 3/3.5e. Besides, last I saw, someone was making modifications to Pathfinder that're brony-friendly

                                Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:35:30 UTC from web
                                1. @chiefanchor I'm used to 2.0, after that... it becomes too loose, the system itself. And then came 4.0, "paladins got their powers by a ritual so they can do what they want and keep them lawl derp"

                                  Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:37:41 UTC from web
                                  1. @nerthos You've never met my one friend's d(bag). Try fighting a shrouded entity who occasionally laughs barely audibly and can sometimes appear as if rolling dice... then fail to dodge one attack and you take an entire dice-bag's worth of damage.

                                    Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:39:03 UTC from web
                                    1. @chiefanchor And not just any dice-bag... the DM's bag, with tons of dice.

                                      Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:39:20 UTC from web
                                    2. @chiefanchor It happened to me with enemies that hitted many times harder than the tank's health. But now I have plane switching, a vorpal blade, and lots of other things. The DM suffers so much for letting me grow that power.

                                      Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:43:47 UTC from web
                                      1. @nerthos A well-versed DM will know what a player can use, and know ways to counter it. Constant challenge leads to greater enjoyment.

                                        Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:45:15 UTC from web
                                        1. @chiefanchor Yes. But we're always in that fight about who's more clever, and he loses just because he doesn't understand how I do things xD

                                          Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:46:22 UTC from web
                                          1. @nerthos Last campaign I played was nothing but fun. I always play stealth-capable characters (halfling rogues, usually) and make a habit of using solely melee-range striking weapons - I hit a certain point and all but dared the DM to let me make sword-chucks. He caved.

                                            1. @chiefanchor nothing butt fun?

                                              1. @banditen I see one "t" in my dash. You have two.

                                                Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:51:12 UTC from web
                                                1. @chiefanchor This is what you're basically saying.

                                                  Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:52:51 UTC from web
                                                  1. @sebastian1314 Nope, I'm showing everything spelled correctly, and one pony taking things out of context to make a fairly crude, but simple, joke out of it.

                                                    Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:53:46 UTC from web
                                                    1. @chiefanchor Well, I was close enough. =D

                                                      Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:54:27 UTC from web
                                            2. @chiefanchor "but fun". But fun. But Fun. BUT FUN. BUTT FUN.

                                              Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:53:41 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                        2. @chiefanchor Also, the thing is I work with the game rules to have far too much power. And he can't simply bring monsters to bet me easily because I always work a gap between my character and the others, so if he puts a monster for me, the rest of the party dies horribly lots of times without sense, the players rage, and he loses a whole group. He never gives me power directly. I build it with little pieces of everyting. Do you think he would give me a nexus of the planes fate/stay night's gate of babylon style? no, I built it while he wasn't paying attention.

                                          Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:52:40 UTC from web
                          2. @redenchilada I have risk, that's kinda like DnD right?...

                            Sunday, 29-Jan-12 04:32:11 UTC from web
                            1. @carcino DnD is like Risk, only... cooler.

        2. @sebastian1314 I have to agree with that quote too. xD

          1. @minti =D It's really a quote to live by.
