Sigh... the power of one troll
By the rules of the Libram, shouldn't the blue be the next to make a thread?


That'll be the day. Should consider ourselves lucky to have even had a Blue post on our boards and move on.

Besides, considering how many times I screwed up making a Libram, we'd never have a "proper" Libram as started by a Blue.

I'm a bit embarrassed for anyone that actually responded to him. I've had him on ignore forever.

Pretty long but it's worth it.

Some people.
I like how our progression night changed into "gearing a new healer" because we can't get a disc >.>

That was certainly arduous. What kind of luddite made it and couldn't figure out how to crop out the GBA interface?
Darn it, you guys had a "towl party" without me! I always seem to miss out on the good stuff around here! I was sleeping at the time. I really wish I didn't have to sleep. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it when I do sleep, but that's only because it's satisfying like scratching an itch...I'd rather just not have the need for it in the first place.
Just finished Gargantia. And wow that is a great ending.

I disagree quite strongly. It was good up 'til then, though.

The last twist with Striker was kind of expected, but good nonetheless. Gargantia's cannon and Ledo turning into a hippy despite having been a tube-bred brainwashed soldier his whole life was stupid. Chamber was quite a bro, though.
So earlier today a few guildies and I were joking about how we were going to get !@#$ty rolls when we killed H animus, and I joked that I would roll a H TF helm off him, which would be useless for me.

Well we killed him after a short time with a very close "tank is dead and now everyone else is dying" kind of kill, I used the coin... and lo and behold... a H TF helm... <_<

Even though we had plenty of time, we decided to call it for the night and just kill farm instead of beginning work on H Lei Shen with the idea that everyone would be more prepared tomorrow... which is silly since he literally has 1 new ability on heroic and the rest comes from the pillar order. But whatever, more time to play DoTA... btw, turns out Riki is really fun if the other team doesn't know what wards, dust, or gem are...

The cannon was a bit of an !@#$ pull, but acceptable and foreshadowed. Ledo's development never indicates he's a brainwashed soldier. I'm not really sure how that detracts from the ending, considering it was in the works throughout the show.

Chamber definitely gets an award for best line ever spoken by a mecha.
That's some pretty slick art there Lobster, I'm envious of those who can do art digitally, I feel rather intimidated whenever I open GIMP (too cheap to buy paint tool sai), just can't bring myself to do it. HOWEVER, pencil art is pretty cool to right!? (also, thanks for linking that stuff Grog, love seeing me some art)

I really wish they could get the bugs worked out with 2 passenger mounts crossing phased boundaries and when crossing zones.

Usually crossing zones (CRZ or otherwise) work out OK if I stop on the character that's carrying the other and give it time to load in. But occasionally it will result in dismounts no matter what I do.

Crossing into phased areas (even if both are in the same phase) will ALWAYS disconnect the passenger. Every single time, and occasionally drop them as well.

I've gotten to the point of just not even using two passenger mounts and istead just dealing with the much less severe problem of refollowing every time I cross a zone or phased area.

I just love the concept of passenger mounts, but hate how they are broken most of the time. Seems they'll likely never actually figure out how to fix this one for as long as they've been working on it.

It showed the tower, but never foreshadowed it was a cannon. More a Chekhov's Gun than real foreshadowing.

Ledo's development never indicates he's a brainwashed soldier.

His whole life, for however many thousands of hours, he's been hellbent on eliminating the Hideauze and upholding the Alliance's spartan ideals. He should have been okay with what Striker was doing with that fleet, and joined in. Instead, Amy flashes him some skin, he grows a heart and rebels against his Alliance indoctrination and his direct superior officer. Even just a couple episodes earlier, he left Gargantia because he wanted to puree more whalesquids for the glory and defense of humanity.

Ledo's 180 is more of an asspull than the cannon.

It was a feel-good ending with several asspulls that didn't really fit the theme of the show, the tone of the world, or common sense, let alone the fact it didn't resolve anything and neglected several interesting potential narrative tangents.
I haff updated my tumblr. BEHOLD

Not bad, man, not bad! Good to see more art in the Libram! :D

If you want something that works kind of like paint tool SAI, try FireAlpaca. It seems pretty analogous and has the added bonus of being free and mac-compatible. I've only messed with it a bit, but it seems pretty great! I too am a broke-face artist, and if I'm honest between FireAlpaca and the GiMP, I can't really justify spending money on PS or anything like that. The way I see it, I'd basically be paying hundreds of dollars for features I frankly don't need. :p

Also, for scanned art, you'll want to open the Colors>Brightness/Contrast window up and tweak the knobs there to get yourself some nice white canvas with black lineart. Additionally, there's a handy tool right here (http://registry.gimp.org/node/24092) for isolating your scan onto a separate transparency layer without messing about with selecting negative space and deleting it and so forth. You'll want to do your Brightness/Contrast stuff first before you use this thing but it shaves off a nice chunk of time. :D

Oh hey yeah. OOPS

edit - There. Now everyone is safe from the terrible mer-nipples.

And I finally get my 4pc. 3 items in 3 days is pretty good I think.
