  1. Going to be running another Tera Q&A this coming Saturday. Don't have an exact time yet, but It will be later in the evening (8ish on) Hop in to watch some gameplay, have any questions answered and if you want, join a party and get some game time in for yourself. All are welcome and I will edit this post when I get an exact start time ironed out. (Also, if you haven't voted for our next SFM's, do that)

    Welcome and good luck!
  3. Hey all. Been a while, but Funday Monday is back! Gonna be running some Ultimate Bravery https://ultimate-bravery.net/ There will be a strawpoll once we get a group going to see whether we are playing on the Rift or the good ol Murder Bridge. Be in Discord early for your spot.
  4. If we could all be more like these guys, none of these conversations would be needed
  5. Again, not my views, but if this particular event wasn't hosted by a known hatemonger, these could and would be perfectly valid arguments. In this case, the motivations are fairly plain. It is however, a solid place to start a conversation about whether any individual, for any reason, should be allowed to set up an event such as this (provided it isn't coming from a place of hate.) The contention here being that pride in identity (any part of your identity) isn't a zero-sum game. For example, Major being incredibly proud to be Scottish does not in any way invalidate my pride in being from the US, nor should it.
  6. In a perfect world, we would have no need for gay, straight, or anything in between, Pride. We would simply accept each other as complex individuals, rather than fixating on one particular aspect of our persons. Until that day comes, when examining issues like this, be it "White History Month" or "Straight Pride," one has to consider why their counterpart exists. Was it out of a need to educate, a need to rally, or simply a need to belong (even for a short time?) Without getting into the bag of cats that is "Who has been more wronged?" when one side has been excluded from history or granted lesser rights, there is a need for exposure. That being said, does one group having their own version of Pride devalue any/all of the others? As the arguments above read, that answer would seem to be yes. If that is the case, shouldn't there be a Pride event for every single group that any one person could claim allegiance to, or run the risk of belittling whatever aspect of their being that they identify with? The assertion that a Straight Pride parade demeans the idea of a Gay Pride parade has to at least infer the inverse. I have my own opinions on this that I am more than willing to discuss (they don't exactly line up with the arguments here, and they sound better than they read.) These are just some thoughts to chew on.
  7. I'll hop into group 1 or ,if we get a bunch of people new to the series, I can head up a nublet friendly group
  8. Hey all, Many apologies for the dearth of Funday Mondays in the last few weeks, but good news! I won't be running one this week either Instead Munsa is running an event for Minion Masters which is very fun and I urge anyone who would normally be at my shindig to attend. His event can be found here The Steam link to download is here Hope to see you all there!
  9. I believe that would be a Fellowship award
  10. Going to look at running an Open House this Wednesday for anyone who is interested
  11. @MadCast: RedJustice https://www.poebuilds.cc/ is a good place to get some ideas on what to prioritize. As I have said to anyone starting out, you will probably scrap/respec your first character. There are a lot of us who are very familiar with the game around who can help avoid some of the less obvious pitfalls, some can help with more traditional builds, others with some of the goofy ones that PoE lets you try
  12. Bit of a bump as the month is rolling over soon. I will be hosting an Open House to discuss the game with anyone who may be interested. I urge anyone who has played it, or is interested in doing so to show up.
  13. To continue with the useful links, this site has some of the most comprehensive guides I have found https://essentialmana.com/
  14. Link to my previous post with useful links and a pretty solid leveling guide https://www.madcastgaming.com/ips/forums/topic/26236-tera-relevant-links/
