Trolling?

Well met!

I recently posted some of my opinions in Politics, Religion, and Morality. Superfrog posted this in reply: "Bro this thread has been dormant for a decade, I’m not sure what your point of necro-ing it is." The implication is clear: That expressing one's opinion on "Politics, Religion, and Morality" is on its face trolling.

I reject that idea totally. Rather, I ask what it says about our Community that, given the awful political environment, including the very real threat to democracy itself in this country, there has been no discussion about it. From Religious Debate for or against HS: "Where to begin . . . the following is in no way to be viewed, read, or interpreted as an attack on anyone regardless of how guilty it may make one's conscience." Maybe this disclaimer would have made a difference to Superfrog. In any event, discussions of morality/politics within a religious/Christian context have not been characterized

Well met!

Even more important, given the current environment:

In Defense of Freedom at a Time of Crisis

1. On September 11, 2001 thousands of people lost their lives in a brutal assault on the American people and the American form of government. We mourn the loss of these innocent lives and insist that those who perpetrated these acts be held accountable.

2. This tragedy requires all Americans to examine carefully the steps our country may now take to reduce the risk of future terrorist attacks.

3. We need to consider proposals calmly and deliberately with a determination not to erode the liberties and freedoms that are at the core of the American way of life.

4. We need to ensure that actions by our government uphold the principles of a democratic society, accountable government and international law, and that all decisions are taken in a manner consistent with the Constitution.

The Gettysburg Address - More Relevant Than Ever

Posted November 20th, 2023 at 11:44 AM by kolakoski

Well met!

"It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced."

Given the current attempts to undermine the fundamentals of Democracy in the United States, Lincoln's address could not be more timely.

Gettysburg Address

Delivered at Gettysburg, Pa.

Nov. 19th 1863.

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. “Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should

Family Reunion!

Posted October 26th, 2023 at 07:27 PM by kolakoski

Well met!

Nadi has just recently posted some cute maps. Created the scenario below for one of them.


Family Reunion!
It's all about the gold, of course!

"Gentlemen, and ladies, you'd best watch your backs. No one can be trusted with so much at stake!"


The Map. ItalianMomma's Doorstep. Note: One, the trees will all function like jungle trees. Two, figures moving up or down ladders move two rungs for each movement space.



The Patriarchs. Heracles and Sgt. Drake SotM are on the Rock spaces on the top tower. They may not be (nor Sgt. Drake RotV) chosen as Capos. They may not move or attack. If a player's figure ends its turn unengaged and adjacent to one of the Patriarchs, that player may roll a 20-sided die. On a roll of 11 or higher, that figure receives a Brandar's
