Xp

Why does it appear as if I'm only gaining XP at a rate of 1/10th?

According to the Prima Guide an Orc is worth 150 XP. Therefore if my party of 4 dispatches 4 Orcs each member should get 150 xp. Unfortunately they are only getting 15xp. What's wrong with this picture?

IC; You are correct. To a degree. All that precedence and all those jurisprudentiary exercises were carried out in American courts overseen by the interpretation of various Supreme Court Justices of the United States. Never was any of that intended to be applied to anyone outside the citizenry of th...

HLD; I see the difference in our views lay in the definition of the acts perported to bin Laden that were perpetrated against the United States. You see them as 'crimes' and I see them as acts of war. And if you wish to hold to the misguided concept that wars are only defined as the conflicts betwee...

Ivan; What are you talking about? (I can understand the essence of your thoughts regardless of your English). Your concepts of the Constitution of the United States is warped by the same neo-socialist liberal view that has caused 'political correctness' to be so pervasive and used to undermine the v...

September 11 is the anniversary of the Camp David Accords. That's the only connection.

EDIT: Although they were actually signed (formalized) on September 17th, 1978, the meetings took place through the previous week.....

Somehow, I (personal opinion follows) get the sense that those of you who are trying to cast the blame, even partially, on the US for this abhorrent act of terrorism against the US are like the defense attorney that attacks the rape victim for the rape.....

I'd like to make some comments about colaterial damage and acts of war verses actual damage and acts of terrorism but feel my anger rising like bile to sting my throat.

I'll keep my comments to myself, for now.

Has anybody tried just killing him and taking his body to the sphere? After all he does say something to the effect that 'my blood should open the door'....

Personal euthanasia - even with 'help' - should be exempted from all legal prosecutions (and also not considered 'suicide' so your life insurance policies will still pay your survivors.....).

****SPOILER**** Alignment shift

I don't know exactly when, but all of a sudden I notice my PC has changed from Chaotic Good to Neutral Evil. I noticed right after leaving the Pocket Plane for the first time. I'm thinking it may have something to do with taking Sarevok into my group. Incidently, my rep did not decrease. Has anyone ...
