    I mean, lava makes light. You could fill the place with rivers of lava.
  2. I see it as flexing different muscles, and get different benefits from both. I run one campaign and play in another, and while I do definitely enjoy building the world and having it react to my players in the one where I'm the DM, I also enjoy not having to worry about preparing dozens of possible NPCs that may have to react to what's going on, and just focusing on how one character will respond.
  3. I think a good comparison to this, which makes the concern a bit clearer, is to when Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire came out. There wasn't a big sprawling post-game, the National Dex wasn't a thing yet, and moving from the Game Boy to the GBA meant that it was impossible to transfer Pokemon from the older games, so you had a fairly clear separation there, and it was essentially a clean slate. That said, the data for the old Pokemon was still in Ruby and Sapphire, so when Leaf Green and Fire Red came out, there wasn't any incompatibility for trades and such. From what I understand, Sword and Shield have no data for any of the Pokemon not in the games programmed in, which means that either they'll never have any non-native Pokemon after future releases (like if they remade Gen IV, which if they continue the past trend is about where they're up to), or they're going to have to build it and patch it in later (which I don't even know how hard or possible it'd be, given that I'm not a programmer). Now, all of that said, death threats and a petition to the leader of a country are way over the top and melodramatic, and people really should get over themselves. If they don't like how the game's been made or presented, they should express it with their wallet and just not buy the games. I've personally held off on getting these at release, partially due to issues people have raised regarding difficulty, and to a minor extent the national dex issue, but the main reason I've held off is the loss of the GTS, which was a fantastic way to get things that you needed, like trade evolutions and such, and has been in the games since Diamond and Pearl. I'm going to see how much the complaints people have had hold water once the game's been out for a bit and has had time to settle in, before deciding if I'm going to get one of these, but we'll see. I may cave in a month's time and get one anyway, who knows >_>
  4. I still log on occasionally. I actually created a new character on Star Forge to join in with my brother's guild at some point, so if you need a fourth to make a guild I could probably help out. Don't know how often I'll be on at the same time to do any group content though >_>
  5. Though I haven't had the chance to play a Fighter yet, they look fun, and they have one of the best abilities in 5e in Action Surge, so there's that. Also all of the archetypes look good, particularly some of the shenanigans Battlemasters can get up to with their maneuvers.
  6. So, uh...I got myself a Japanese Carracosta through the GTS and thought I'd try that shiny breeding trick by breeding it with my female Dragonite by getting six eggs as a test. On the one hand, no shinies, but on the other, all six of them are female. Does anyone want a female Dratini? If not I'm probably just gonna Wonder Trade them, maybe someone's just starting their game and will get lucky with a level 1 Dratini they can use in their team >_>
  7. Fair point. I suppose you could probably just watch the first TDW stinger on Youtube to see Sif and Volstagg giving the Collector the Aether, and Volstagg's line about keeping two Infinity Stones so close together (which is the first time they're called as such in the MCU), and be done with it.
  8. Skipping Thor: The Dark World also skips the introduction to the Reality Stone. If you miss that one, anything involving The Collector or the Aether in Infinity War or Avengers 4 is going to be confusing. Plus TDW was where the first exposition regarding the Infinity Stones was laid out, so there's that too.
  9. From what I've read, it will be "…from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored." A lot of people are clamouring for it to be set in the Old Republic, and I for one would be so keen for that, but I'm honestly just thrilled about the idea of more Star Wars films to explore more of the galaxy than just the Skywalker family fucking everything up.
  10. There's also the fact that the 3DS was already struggling sometimes with X and Y, let alone Sun and Moon. I know Horde battles and weather effects in X and Y would cause noticeable framerate drops, and Sun and Moon it happened with some Z-moves as well. If they want to continue to build on the Pokemon games they have to move to the Switch.
