First of all, I'm happy with the variety of content in S&P as it is. A free download of this quality is very much appreciated. In recent months my favorite articles (save from my own!!) have been the Top Ten Games We Want But Can't Get and the recent article on how Mongoose was set up (moreso becaus...

Thanks for replying. I couldn't find anything either. So, if there is no official right answer then anything goes. :D

thank you glad in japan boys and girls equally play 8)which systems for roleplaying are the most popular From the people I know, I'd say Vampire is the most popular. I know one group that plays it in real time (e.g. only in the middle of the night). I don't know if the new Monkey actor is better at ...

Well, card games like Magic: The Gathering are the most popular in Japan so something like that from Mongoose would go over very well I'm sure (though from responses to me listing MTG as my favorite game on Mr Evil's thread, I don't think such a game would be popular with hardcore Mongoose fans!!). ...

I've seen the new program and, although nothing will compare for me to the original, it is still very good. The main actor is one of Japan's most successful 'talents' (you'd have to see and hear who else qualifies here as a 'talent' to understand...'non-talent' is often a better description). The or...

Not just Japanese, everyone's ligt cruisers had torp mounts. Even a couple of ex-WW1 Battleships had side-launched fixed underwater tubes!
Yes, sorry, I meant Heavy Cruisers.

Cheers,

I think one of the points Wulf Corbett is trying to make is that torpedoes on ships (destroyers and Japanese cruisers) were not fired from the bow (the front). The launching mechanisms were located on the port and starboard (the left and right sides as facing forwards). For a destroyer to launch a t...

I think you would enjoy the book then. The author argues that it was Nelson's ego that got him into trouble on land: the self-delusion that he could basically do anything better than anyone else, including army experts actually trained to fight on land. Whatever his ego, he could certainly walk the ...

Guest post was mine...forgot to log in... Not strictly on topic, but... If anyone is interested, I've just finished reading 'For God and Glory' by Joel Hayward. It's about Nelson and is a very interesting read. The author is an expert on tactics in warfare and, rather than examine Nelson's life as a...

The use of and reason behind using peripheral vision may have been lost in the European schools. In Asian arts there is a clear disctinction between the older, battlefield arts and the newer, non-battlefield arts. Peripheral vision was important (actually, vital) because the older schools were relev...

Well, I have never fenced before but I have been doing mostly Asian martial arts for almost 20 years (armed and unarmed), including several years of kendo with the Kidotai (Japan's counter-terrorist / counter-insurgency police unit). I can see where the idea of linking it to Dex would come from, but...

So, Buxom Sorceress, are you a fan of David Icke?

Wish I'd seen your avatar before Christmas...I wouldn't have asked Santa for an Xbox 360. :D

A feint could involve a combatant acting as though he is tired or more injured than he really is thus inviting an attack. When the opponent is committed, the combatant counters. This would be related therefore to Charisma. I rationalise the actual physical action of feinting as most would think of i...
