Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

A war in Heaven? I've sometimes wondered if all these gods and goddesses and pantheons from different religions are real, and they're finding propihets to advertise themselves on Earth, trying to win over all the adherents -- much like different fast food chains going in capitalist competition with...

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

What climate problems would jimsonweed (e.g.) have? Primarily, the colder temperature, but I suspect I could have it 'imported' down from the northern-most clans, who have it warmer. Henbane seems possibly more willing to live in the cold, if less strong in its deleriant effect. I suppose I can use...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Well, from what I can gather, that seems to depend on the species a bit - and possibly also on your definition of "predatory", does an animal that kills others to feed them to its young count? Fair point actually, I suppose they would still qualify. And in any case, they'll still pretty much sting ...

Anradh, I want to hear more about that psychological horror! And about the entheogens! Hmm. Ulterior motive, eldin? :P I haven't decided what the entheogens actually are, primarily because I'm having difficulty finding naturally occurring deleriant chemicals that would grow in the correct climate—I...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

No, bees pollinate flowers. Yellowjackets (and other wasps) mostly just murder things. I learned recently that wasps actually do pollinate, just not very effectively; they themselves eat nectar in their adult morph, but their grubs are insectivorous (which is why I used to think wasps were predator...

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

Uh... Hmm. There are three major ethnic groups (names, as ever, in constant revision), that I'll dub Toms, Dicks and Harrys. Toms and Dicks are from the same ethnic family, and their religions are directly descended from a common ancestor, as are their languages. In turn, the Toms' religion has a ma...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Yeah, it's just mostly a case of bigger numbers these days. My tower has plenty of room to upgrade still, because I'm neither a lottery winner nor insane enough to buy a top spec machine for casual gaming. When I built mine, I was offered a triple GTX-980 SLI... enough resolution that I'd need three...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

So, what's special about a $1200 gaming computer? Generally, a PC intended to be good at gaming specifically will have a beefy GPU (or several SLIed), a fast ethernet connection and possibly an SSD. Otherwise, it's no different really from other higher spec PCs: more RAM, more processing speed (be ...

Re: higher pergentage of land?

It depends on the distribution of the land, but, generally speaking, that's true. That said, arid and semi-arid regions are capable of supporting larger populations of people than the equivalent surface area of ocean. If the goal is more people/civilisations then that's the best strategy. When I mad...
