    1. Re: Your fedora-tipping atheism makes your fantasy gods boring

      As I said before, you are creating boxes full of people and assigning good and evil to all of them.  Democracy is neither good, nor evil. Is is simply a word used to describe a "thing".  It is a (...)


    2. Re: Your fedora-tipping atheism makes your fantasy gods boring

      I agree as well. But it goes beyond just religion. Lazy writing often follows the trends for modern media and currently marxist thought permeates the younger generations. Everyone must be divided into (...)


    3. Re: Are Thursdays cursed?

      It's a nefarious conspiracy to motivate you to write your own story and release chapters on thursdays. Be the hero we all need, Wes.  Gasp!!! That is so evil!!


    4. Re: Can utopia become reality?

      Not to poke the crowd, but since when was Utopia about average life span?   Don't eat that, don't drink that, don't smoke that, don't swim there, don't climb mountains, don't live...all so you can reach (...)


    5. Re: Can utopia become reality?

      Utopia literally means nowhere. When the concept was invented, it was a given that it could not exist.  It is based on Greek ou ‘not’ + topos ‘place’; the word was first used in the book Utopia (1516) (...)


    6. Re: Are Thursdays cursed?

      Why? Why do so many of my favorite stories take Thursday off!!??  Is it some plot to make me leave the safety and comfort of my little home? It is a curse from the boredom god!!?? Write faster (...)


    7. Re: How many members should be in a party in a dungeon crawler type story?

      I agree with sunandshadow.  I would stick to 3 to 8. This is a good groups size. These numbers are influenced by many variables.  Only the desperate, insane, foolish or overpowered would run dungeons (...)


    8. Re: Interracial relationships - are they actually possible ?

      Well, considering the fact that we are a mix of Human, Neanderthal, Denisovian, and possible other races....


    9. Re: Interracial relationships - are they actually possible ?

      The short answer. Yes. The medium answer. It takes the skill of the writer to create a believable, yet non-creepy flow into the relationship. First and most important, the non-human partner must be (...)


    10. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      Well, I have always assumed the reasoning behind "We can Summon you, but can't send you back." is that there is no magic on Earth. So the energy for the "Summoning" comes from the other world.  I suppose (...)


    11. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      Ugh, just imagining a gate connecting two worlds makes my head hurt.   I can see the politicians and news media saying that goblins and orcs are misunderstood, dragons are an endangered species, alchemy (...)


    12. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      I am forced to admit I am the odd man out.  I just never understood why 95% of the heroes want to go home.  I guess it is me that is odd. I would be totally excited to explore a new world, to experiment (...)


    13. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      Personally, I'm pretty sure if it weren't for the plot armor, the isekai experience should generally be "oh crap, I just got hit by a truck, what the heck is that bearcatdog looking thing doing? aaaaaaaaaaaa" (...)


    14. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      Okay looks like i stepped on some toes.  First. I'm old, retired, and cranky. Why does that matter? I, like many people, have very few people I call close family still living out there.  Sure you (...)


    15. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      I am finding difficulty putting thought to word here, so please be patient. First, family.  I can understand missing and wanting to visit them, but to give up on a whole new Magical world.  You must (...)



    16. Re: Summoned/Reincarnated/Teleported to a new world and they want to go home? Seriously?

      What is it with so many stories of people going to new worlds with magic, and these idiots want to come back to Earth? Hello? Magic!!!! Come on man! Why do authors even think this is even remotely a story. (...)



    17. Re: What things that make you quit reading a novel after serveral chapters?

      I found a couple new ones to add. Constantly retelling the same scene from multiple character points of view. Characters that are young, but act much too old one minute and much too young the next. (...)
