Depends how much headroom you want them to have I guess, if you're going to do multiple levels within one picture a la LSN's dungeons or just one. My backgrounds are 900x400 in the mountain lair, mostly because the 600x400 I had in the apprentices was a bit cramped if there was a lot going on in some areas. I think that anything over 600px wide will get chopped if it's displayed on a phone - I lose the right side of all images in mine and haragorn's games for example, so might be worth thinking about?

And when I'm on my phone, I can just touch the picture and chose 'view picture' and it shows me the whole thing.

True.

Also, I decided on a more fun superpower. Manipulation of energy into matter and vice versa.

I could either blow up the planet or solve the energy crisis forever. Choices, choices...

Questions: What type of matter could you make/would you have control over what was made? And would you be impervious to the energy created?

I could easily see that being 'the ability to create useless individual electrons/protons from energy, or turn matter into energy and vaporise yourself in the process' :lol:

Well, it would depend on what kind of superhero I'd want to be, wouldn't it? Obviously now I'm going to go for full control, able to make any type of matter, being impervious to the energies I do create, being able to contain said energy...

But just so it's been said, it'd probably be more like what you just said. I'd have one moment in which I shout "Behold my power!" and then I blow up.

Ooh, new superpower! The power to blow up at will (and survive)

I think we need some new games to revitalise the forum... Anyone got anything in the works at the moment or ideas for a quick and dirty forum game we could get started with relatively low effort?

I most certainly do, I expect to begin my game at the end of this week or the beginning of next, it is quite massive (as in everybody plays) and will have short update schedule. I hope to bring out the sadistic side of ppl :evilgrin:

:evil: Stop copying my characters M0rt or I will start putting arsenic in the cheese.

But in reality it would be quite a boring existence solving the energy crisis...the problem is that you would have to convert pico grams per minute of matter to energy to solve the energy crisis...all day every day for forever because more than a pico gram per minute and the planet turns into a nice crispy rock with a lot of carbon dioxide and water in the atmosphere...
(Thermodynamics such actually...)

Or you could just blow up the planet...but surviving without a nice oxygen rich atmosphere and plant base to make you food...or a nice 1 g planet to live on sort of sucks...

M0rt the most overpowered superhero ever...

So Eternal Silence is a mod for Half Life 2 or the Valves Source engine or something, which is completely free. Exact details are on Steam, but it's essentially a multiplayer fps/space warfare game which is apparently similar to Star Wars Battlefront 2, at least in the outer space parts. I haven't played it yet, but a friend has recommended it. Thought I'd pass it along.

... So. SOPA. Lots of websites "blacked out" to put a fight against it.

Personally, yeah, piracy is a problem, and there needs to be action against it. But SOPA isn't it.

SPOILERS:I fear my games will have to black out as well. But not really. I think. :shifty:

I'm blacking out all of my games.

Unfortunately, the only game I'm running doesn't have enough applicants to run. Of course, it's on the other forum, which might be a problem.

+2 Charisma: Tasty People have strong natural pheromones.
-2 Wisdom: Tasty People have a racial predisposition for making bad decisions.
When faced with an encounter involving a predatory creature, a Tasty Person must make a Charisma Check. If the DC (15) is met, the creature will attack the Tasty Person to the exclusion of other targets who are not also Tasty People who have met this DC. The DC should be modified for monsters with a strong sense of smell, I leave this to your discretion as a DM. The monster is not forced to attack the Tasty Person if doing so would cause it to take an attack of opportunity.
A Tasty Person's starting class should be treated as his favored class.

Just a bill that is going to ruin the internet if it gets released, because the politics behind it don't know how the friggin internet works.

oooooh, that abomination is called SOPA? aaaaaah, ok. Ehm, but since they don't know how the interwebz works, don't u think the damage they can do on the short term can be great, but on the long run ppl will find ways to circumvent the problem?

As I said, they don't know how the internet works. There ARE ways to circumvent the act. But doing so brings with it huge problems. So, piracy would continue through the abuse of loopholes, but in doing so become even more unsafe, whilst alot of sites that don't actually have anything to do with piracy can be closed down without any kind of warning.

Atleast, from what I gathered from it.

I think SOPA is officially dead now. I read an article yesterday... and I can't find it now. I think we still have to worry about the other one, though.

If SOPA/PIPA passes, I wonder if there would be any sort of backlash. The occupy movement kinda just fizzled out, so I gotta question if most people in this country are even capiable of a long term fight anymore. And I don't see anonymous taking this lying down. Of course I don't see them working in people's best interest either.

Hell, maybe I just hope every new thing they come up with to screw us will kick start a revloution.
