Re: Catalog of the Weird Parallels

So very much so. Defining humans as post bottleneck of around 70k BP will get a massively different number than if you define human as a genus starting around 2 million BP.

Re: Catalog of the Weird Parallels

I've noticed that more than a few define human as a genus rather than species, sub-species, or post stone age peoples as that did radically change who and what we are IMO.

Re: Sufficiently Advanced Technology

I couldn't tell the difference between a good stage magician and someone performing real magic.
I certainly don't believe in magic, but I couldn't tell the difference.
I think that's what's meant...

Re: Catalog of the Weird Parallels

Assassins would simply find ways of delivering poisons by proxy. The mail carrier is doing their job honestly as they don't know the cake's deadly.

It could lead to interesting high society...

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

This is probably a very good timeline to transport odd items or even non-humans. We'd just assume good or bad cosplay.

Got to love this line from the article. "So, it wasn’t a Nazi plane—it was Nazi plane cosplay."

Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the Week: Gluttony and Increased Consumption

It certainly fits a poorly managed hyperthyroid. I lost weight eating an average of 5k Calories a day back when mine was hyper. And that was the only symptom, thankfully. Back then I was only...

Re: Halloween and Other disgraceful Holidays; Memetic Seasonal Warfare.

Anti-Halloween fundamentalists are probably fragmented into sub-groups fighting each major holiday.
Pro-Halloween religious folks probably care only about the anti ones, because why should they care...

We can't disprove it. Because if we're programs, then we could just as easily be programmed to think we got the results that would convince us we're not programs.
Also just because our universe is...

Re: Making elves for GURPS

Noble, wise, perfect in nearly every way elves are rather boring and heavily classist. I don't think they appeal to modern audiences, for the most part. They may work as adversaries in a common...

Are we really anywhere near that level? I assumed we were still in the "rare cosmic rays hitting the upper atmosphere" level.

Re: Making elves for GURPS

Grass gets everywhere. And we're still very "biological" compared to the more "elemental" natures I wanted the other races to be.

Re: Making elves for GURPS

I never fully fleshed them out. But I used Chinese Elemental Powers as a base.
Male Dwarves were metal hence their natural dislike for wood or elves and some distrust for humans.

Re: Kindly Necromancers

You're assuming that the corpse has some innate and important aspect of the living person. That's a belief that not everyone in real life has, and certainly not required for fictional settings.
