News & Not News / Osama Bin Laden : Dead
« on: May 02, 2011, 02:50:37 AM »
Guess they got him.

I assume these are topical.  I'm watching the CNN feed.

I wonder if they were going for "dead" or "dead or alive"

Don't wait to watch this, they take it down Sunday evening. 
It stars some fairly well known people for an internet show.

Movies, TV, Books & Music / The Man from Earth
« on: December 18, 2007, 04:32:32 AM »
Great movie.  Well, what are you waiting for?  Go watch!

Why?  It's brilliantly written.  The writer is best known for his work on Star Trek and Outer Limits scripts.  It's a sci-fi movie set in a room without a single special effect. It's easily the best movie I've seen all year.

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Where's the queen theme!?
« on: August 11, 2007, 05:52:29 AM »
So I know nothing about the classic Flash Gordon stuff...  but I'm pleased with this new scifi show.  Except wheres the old queen theme promissed in the comercials?  Maybe they'll actualy have an opening next week.

I didn't notice them ever call Dr. Hans Zarkov by name...

Anyway, thoughts?

Shootin' the Breeze / The Grudge
« on: October 23, 2004, 12:43:42 PM »
Good movie.  Even though you can see every scare comeing from a mile away... the shear creepiness still gets you.

I'm still wondering how long that old woman survived in that house...

Speculation Nation / A small problem with a common theory
« on: August 11, 2003, 11:33:18 PM »
Ok, so here's what appear to be a few well excepted theories.

Gaiseric = Skullknight.  (Gaseric eventualy became skullknight over the 1000 years)
Skullknight = previous "Guts"  (Guts and Skullknight both walk the path of the "struggler")

Therefore, Gaiseric = Skullknight = previous "Guts" ... ?
I don't see Guts going around conquering the world.  I see Griffith doing that.  Perhaps its time to scrap one of those two theories.  My guess is that Skully = Guts seems to be more strongly re-inforced as of late.  

(Yes, I know that history doesn't repeat itself, but they've implied its probably gonna be rather similar).

Shootin' the Breeze / A new wave
« on: July 31, 2003, 09:04:15 AM »
Well, Walter, you were presumably annoyed by the large number of non berserk related posts, so you unleashed a fire.  Unfortuneatly, this fire wants to spread and needs more posts to do so in.

As usual, I find abuse of power amuseing.  What do ya'll think 'bout this?

oh, and while I'm at it.  Heres some trailors for the Live action Evangelion movie

Berserk Miscellaneous / Knives?
« on: March 27, 2003, 03:13:40 PM »
When was the last time Guts used his throwing knives.  The ONLY instance I can think of is the bar in the first volume.  

Thoughts?

(Yes, I am bored.)

Berserk Miscellaneous / Starting BERSERK rpg elsewhere
« on: November 25, 2002, 04:25:04 AM »
I'm starting to plan for a BERSERK rpg at another forum, so I thought I'd poke around for info here.
No, before you say it, I'm going to try to keep the characters AS FAR AWAY FROM THE BAND OF THE HAWK AS POSSIBLE.

I'm basing the game of the 3rd Ed. D&D ruleset.  Leaving out demi-humans, and severely tweeking and discouraging magic users.
The plan as of yet is to start about 1 year before the end of the war.  The players will start of in a random mercenary band, after that, it will be up to them.  I do plan to be keeping VERY close track of the dates.  I saw the map thread a few weeks ago, I'll probably dig that up and use that for distances.

Right now... I'm not sure what I'm looking for here.  Mostly the point of this post is to help me keep what I do true to BERSERK.  I'll probably stop by occasionaly for plot ideas when I'm stuck.  I'm not looking for players from here because you'll all have an information advantage.  But I'll probably put up a link if some one asks.


Asking my local gamers guild, we figured Guts was about level 8 at the hundred man fight, assuming level 1 fighters.  That hold up in everyones mind?  Despite my best reasonable efforts, they MIGHT run into characters at some point or other...  As for other characters, I havn't a clue.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Dragonslayer - How absurd is it EXACTLY
« on: August 08, 2002, 02:09:43 AM »
I saw this in the #Hawks IRC the other night and thought it could be better determined here.
They were trying to determine the exact dimensions of the dragonslayer to get it's weigh.

So, what are the weight and dimension of the massive sword?
Thickness of the blade is not a fun calculation, don't forget, it gets thiner in the middle.(I've seen this clearly SOMEWHERE).  Average is the best bet.

It is just a "slab of iron" so density is easy to find.

Probably been done before.  But I don't look through ancient threads.  I bet a bunch of people don't either.  It can be fun to go back over old ideas anyways.  At least it is fun for the newbies.
