    posted a message on Fantasy/Sci-fi Plastic Models? Warhammer, maybe?
    Hobbytown USA and Amazon.com both sell warhammer and warhammer 40k stuff.

    You can view the models at http://www.games-workshop.com and even buy them there.

    I've seen the chaos marines and their vehicles' models up close. The marines are pretty detailed for something that's takes up the surface area of a nickel, it really comes down to the painting quality that brings out the different shapes. The vehicles are different, they're bigger and thus have more detail. Also it should be said that almost everything is customizable. So if you get a Chaos Rhino you can put a rocket pod on top, you can dictate where hatches and control panels are. You can determine which gun ports are empty and not.

    I don't personally own any, im just speaking from my experience when I helped my friend make his.

    The painting is kind of the hallmark of the Warhammer franchise as a whole though, you have to make your own army colors, so it's not as if you have to do black and gold and cobalt. you can do pea green, pink, and purple if you want.

    posted a message on Mercs!!!
    I know a couple things about the D3 Mercs but don't hold me to this.

    1) The name was changed to Companion
    2) They will have more depth than the D2 Mercenaries... such as they will go so far as to have a background story.

    I don't want to go running around looking for this info, but that sums it up, aside from that they have not talked about it, next blizzcon... one of you admins that go to Blizzcon ought to ask.

    posted a message on Gold art
    It's kind of a hard question to answer for me... I think that on one hand they won't do it because they arnt thinking about it, but on the other hand I think maybe the gold that drops from monsters is auto-pickup and that gold that other characters drop would have to manually be picked up.

    I guess someone just really has to ask bashiok or jay wilson at the next blizzcon or even try it out for themselves in the demo.

    Do you think that the people responsible will get what's coming to them?

    Your question is kind of funny considering that there won't be another crisis since it will destroy us.

    I would say that they've alienated the public enough that the frenzy alone will make it hard for them to make mistakes in the future.

    I'll bet they'll make the female monk look like the basic design of Balsa from Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

    Quote from "Valtonis" »
    Shaolin monks took part in alot of battles and were drafted into the military in various times in Chinese history.
    they were like the special forces of today
    below would be some of the more famous examples


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaolin_Kung_Fu


    missing from that is a small force of monks who rescued the future Tang Emperor, Taizhong (Li Shiming) from an ambush

    That answers my question. Thanks.

    posted a message on How to make gold usefull? My 2 cents.
    They'll probably make gold worth collecting by making traders give off things that are worth buying instead of bland generic items.

    posted a message on Ranger class sort of confirmed?
    Is there any lore to support something similar to the rogue in D1 coming from the south west. Save for the monestary rogues, like a thieves guild or something mentionable?

    posted a message on New class name is blah
    Anyone else think Zealot would be a more appropriate name instead of Monk?

    I don't know of any monk sects in the world that have ever applied martial dicipline to war. Monks are ritualists, not crusaders.

    ...can anyone justify the name Monk over Zealot?

    posted a message on How will you pass the time?
    For those of you who are not aware of Postal 2, you can use a CAT as a silencer for shotguns and machineguns.

    Aside from that you can even set them on fire and let them go wild.

    Funny and gross. You can shoot peoples legs off and they'll bounce around on 1 leg too.

    posted a message on Does anyone here think
    Well WoW got boring eventually, Warcraft 3 never did. Diablo 3 seems very similar to Warcraft 3 if you really use your imagination. I'd say that Diablo 3 would be fun if it had a DOTA type of PVP map.

    Well you have to remember that not all knights only used melee weapons.... A lot used ranged weapons like crossbows and rifles.

    Quote from "Seth" »
    Yes, I saw that. Since it didn't offer any information, either on the patch or on Diablo III, I didn't put it up.

    @ Ranim: Dunno, if you're talking about this OP, nothing was edited out by me and I was the last person to edit it. There's a section at the top about PvP, although I think there may be something in one fo the other updates, as well.

    It went like this... Mockery asked the rep if he could join a game and attack somebody.. and the rep said something to the effect of Yes, but it isn't activated in the game. Then he said he looked for the function and found it but it didn't do anything.

    There was more but that's the basic body of it.
