The new Wizards of the Coast logo looks stupid

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:29 AM)

It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

This is quite possibly the most miserable i have ever felt.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

He only appeared the once in the US comics and got one follow up in the UK comic. He never suffered badass decay like Omega Supreme and the combiners.

@  Rycochet : (19 February 2021 - 05:15 PM)

Trypticon's debut issues in the marvel comic were the absolute best 'To sell a toy' comics of the book.

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:03 AM)

Godzilla vs Trypticon, co written by Christina Hobson and Max Borenstein.

@  Bass X0 : (19 February 2021 - 01:36 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2021 - 03:13 PM)

The best Rush comes from Canada.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 February 2021 - 02:54 PM)

In *other* wonderful and fantastic news, guess whose Kingdom Cheetor and Paleotrex FINALLY arrived today?

@  Bass X0 : (16 February 2021 - 03:07 PM)

yeah, its a good show. watch as much as you can.

@  tigerhawk : (16 February 2021 - 04:58 AM)

Goodnight Sweethearts turned out to be a gem, I only knew Nicholas Lyndhurst in Only Fools and Horses but never saw this show before.

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

@  Telly : (13 February 2021 - 01:49 AM)

thats the main reason i got rid of my alternators. too much of a pain to transform

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:13 AM)

Didn't use a hammer, but feeling a little less sentimental.

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:12 AM)

(The video I found to get some hints had alcohol and a hammer, and by the time I was done, I understood why.)

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:11 AM)

I posted something about feeling all sentimental when I transformed alternators Smokescreen a few days ago...and tonight I tried transforming Grimlock.

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:10 AM)

they don't taste great.

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:10 AM)

I'm eating my words...

@  Kaon : (12 February 2021 - 01:48 AM)

How is everyone tonight

@  Telly : (11 February 2021 - 06:31 PM)

even intergalactic despots need some down time

Howard sighs appreciatively at the scent of his cooking, and steps outside to see what all the commotion is about.
 

"What??? No! You can't have had fun with that!"[/color][/font]

Howard shrugs. "Mi gat to ramp calvinball fi de first time inna foreva, an dat ah always ah gud time, nets or nuh."
 

With you and your friends safe, I will need your sword, Daughter. The rest will need to kneel."[/b]

Howard takes another step out of the doorway. "Hey now! Nuh one ah getting beheaded inna San Lorenzo! Mi ago nah ave it."

The Queen was taken aback. "I would never dream of such a thing. All of you are heroes! And since Sir Kage stated he is not part of any particular order, I feel it is only right to exercise mine right to properly knight all of you."

Howard stares at the queen, and mental gears are almost audible. Then he steps back into the doorway and says, "Mi forgot dat was an option weh swords an kneeling were involved," clearly embarrassed.

Still feeling a little unfocused from the Adapter punch, Kage could only muster a feeble protest as EB reached him. Though he did manage to simoly get EB to support him rather than carry him.

At least, he thought he had.

Having extracated himself by the time the King returned, Kage sank down to one knee for a moment, then levered himself up again.

“We ended up playing a type of Foot ball against a team of giants in pumpkin hats.

We won,” he said with a wink. “Then there was an Adapter with a glass jaw and, oh yes. A ‘Champion Like No Other’. You are a poor Patron, Mossy.”

Pleased to see that everybody had beaten the bug witch, Kage sighed deeply. Then winced again. Stifling another groan, Kage finally heard the Queens statement of ‘Knighting’ the heroes. Although Kage was more than certain his friends all deserved such an honour. The ifea of being fully ‘Knighted’ himself still made Kage uncomfortable. Despite Destrons enthusiastic insistence when she had unofficially ‘Knighted’ him after their first adventure. Despite his friends affirmation that he was Worth of such. Kage still felt unsuited for it. Especially the ‘Sir’ bit.

So he stepped back a bit, wobbled aa he lost his balance and once again sank to one knee.

After letting Kage go, EB winced as his shoulder got crushed again, but he patted the King's shoulder back in a brotherly fashion.
"You would've loved the Earth Day celebrations of Holiday Island..." He gave an uncertain smile which made it unclear if it was a good memory or not. Any further thought was interrupted by the Queen.

He blinked at the thought of being knighted. "No, thanks. Kage and Howie did most of the work. I just tackled one guy. I don't think I'd be any good at following the Knightly Rules or whatever."

Moscareina grumbled under her breath, "I wish I could have just sent something that would've drank your spines". And she started to walk off. Meanwhile, the Queen replied to Kage and EB's rejections with, "I do not mean to knight you for just this one event. You have saved the world and proven to be honorable in mine eyes." She walked purposefully towards Friday February but then stopped. "While quite worthy, I don't know if you should also accept the knighting for Lady Oracle, seeing as she can not physically be here. I don't know if it should be you or Kage."

Pulling himself back up, Kage inclined his head towards Friday.

“I think Friday, or Freya, should take the Knighting for herself and Oracle because, in a way, you could call them sisters.”

The PoeT regarded their surroundings with lingering suspicion, as if, at any moment another monster or challenge may yet spring upon them.

 

As the Queen spoke of knighthoods, he raised a hand in protest.

 

He said, 

 

"Though grateful for such generosity,

 There is yet a title that waits for me,

 Austier, till then, is my given road,

 That I may learn to bear it's heavy load."

EB shuffled his feet awkwardly, hoping the Queen would let the matter drop. He really did not want to be knighted, but he also did not want to upset Her Majesty.

"It is no crime in Viknadia to decline an honor such as this if you feel unsuited to it... I myself would feel strange if called sir ...on the battlefield or at court. Perhaps Mother - some other rewards can be awarded instead of the knightings?" Dee does hand her mother her sword though.

Nerves prickling between his shoulder blades, Kage looked from the Queen to Destron.

“To be a “Real” Knight is a great honour. Even though, as i have said to your daughter when she spoke of it after our first adventure i still feel unworthy of said honour.”

"Self-worth is not a thing able to be given by another my friend, you must be the source of that yourself... all that is offered you now is fealty and the wisdom of the Northern Queen... who thinks very highly of you."  Dee Smirks at Kage.  "Remember that being Knighted is a much lower honor than she intended to give you this day... my Prince."  Destron then motions casually with her hand to indicate Kage's current position.

 

"Given you are on one knee at the moment, and were I to have suddenly developed an appreciation for men... I'm Sure Mother would happily forgo the knighting in favour of a different ceremony."  Dee giggles... wondering how successfully she's managed to force a blush onto her face... XD

The Queen sighed. "I had thought that with you already being friends, Kage would have made an excellent suitor. As revealed to mine eyes, it's not that simple. But to the matter at hand..." She touched the blade of Dee's sword to each of Friday's shoulders once, then she repeated the gesture to represent knighting Oracle. "May you bring yourself and Viknadia great honor, Dame Friday." She then turned her attention to EB. "I do not agree with your refusal to be knighted...but I shall honor it. Perhaps some day in the future you will feel yourself to be as honorable as others see you." Suddenly, her expression lit up as she had an idea. "And that might come about once you win the fair Bea's heart. I have ideas on how this can be accomplished." The King let out a bellowing laugh. "Ha ha, splendid idea! But all this ceremony can wait. For now, let's eat!"

 
"And so they had much merriment as thankfully nothing suddenly showed up to try to eat them. THE END."

Professor Angela Quercus Oakley calmly closed the book and said, "Quite the tale and honestly doesn't sound all that exaggerated. It makes me wonder if another will come to pass next year..."
