Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:17 PM)

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

@  Patch : (26 January 2021 - 06:44 PM)

Not any harder than anyone else with an accent.

@  Nevermore : (26 January 2021 - 12:47 PM)

Question to all the native English speakers: Those of you familiar with Australian singer Sia - how hard are her vocals for you to understand?

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 January 2021 - 04:44 AM)

Calm down, Dirge.

@  Paladin : (25 January 2021 - 09:44 PM)

death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

@  ZakuConvoy : (21 January 2021 - 03:15 PM)

*walks out on stage* Umm, I don't know how to tell everyone this, but Conway Twitty's been dead for nearly 30 years, now. So...*dances awkwardly as distraction*

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 10:47 AM)

uh oh we need a distraction, ladies and gentlemen Conway Twitty.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 January 2021 - 10:20 AM)

*screaming internally*

@  -LittleAutob... : (21 January 2021 - 09:46 AM)

Everything is f i n e

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 January 2021 - 08:30 AM)

Everything's okay until it isn't. That's life.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 January 2021 - 08:12 AM)

Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

That's not true. An adult man is in control of the White House now.

@  repowers : (19 January 2021 - 03:18 PM)

Everything's out of control.

@  -LittleAutob... : (19 January 2021 - 09:51 AM)

*cough* w h a t?

@  Donocropolis : (19 January 2021 - 09:48 AM)

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

Nadie puede decir algo diferente >:D

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)


@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

After driving north a couple of miles outside of Besseltrade and getting armored up, Friday asked the fateful question, "Where now?"

Having retracted his Cowl for the moment, Kage rubbed his chin with a gauntleted hand.


"Well, our primary target still remains the fast relocating forces of YPNR. However, is it worth risking the use of one of Ms. Greys tracer spell pages now, so that we can at least guesstimate Moscareina/Patchs location, in relation to the known Core-based fallback YPNR base?


Speaking of locations, how effective will your map system be out here Friday?"

Friday said, "For this area, I have have it mapped for a few miles since we've been out here. I'm limited by what I've seen and what networks are nearby. I relay information with Oracle but in the end, it just means we have the same information and gaps in that information. For instance, neither of us has a map of the Underceiling."

"I figured as much. Well then, this journey will be as much discovering what's out here as it is anything else. Hmm. When we get back to the OPD, remind me about the Underceiling Friday. I wouldn't mind taking part in a potential exploration of what's down there. Although there is the wrinkle of Patthew Hughes and his not-exactly-legal trading going on down there. Still, the existence of an entirely upside down, mostly intact city that could stretch the entirety of the OPD, if not further...




Anyway, the tracer pages. Do we risk using one now. Or do we focus on YPNR for now.




Kage knew, deep down, that he would risk a page to begin there search for Patch. However, he would not push for that choice.

"I-I don't know. It's such a tough decision. What does everyone else think?" Friday asked, as she turned to the rest of the group.

"Let's use one of the magic pages. Let's not fall into the trap of never using our magic trinkets because we might need them later."


"That's our friend out there. We need to find her."

As one of the pages was lit, the letters slowly lit up. A crude arrow made intense flames hovered above the page as the paper itself also floated in the air. The direction was north-northwest but...was also slightly pointed upward. As the remnants of the paper burned and the flaming arrow began to dim, the group now had a course to follow. Ominous clouds slowly began to gather as uncertainty loomed.

The hospital bed Harue had been in was empty. The nurses chatted and laughed among themselves, trading horror stories of one visit or another of their recurring guest.


The apartment Harue had stayed in was also empty. The apartment was in worse condition, scorch marks on the walls and ceilings, broken dish fragments in the trash. On the kitchen counter was an envelope with a handful of Laics, along with a hand written story addressed to “The Landlord’s Boss’s boss’s boss’s boss.”


Once upon a time there was a brave Soldier who served in a large Kingdom. He was strong and handsome like no other. The Kingdom was under constant threat from the Lord of Chaos, whom constantly attacked the Kingdom with fire-breathing dragons, goblins whom caused mischief, and other monsters. The Soldier did his duty and defeated many a monster, yet remained relatively unknown save to the ladies of the Kingdom, who fawned upon him.


One day, the Soldier came upon an injured Goblin. The Goblin had been wounded by some townsfolk, and the Soldier took pity upon it and treated its wounds. So great was the Soldier’s compassion that he offered to take the Goblin in. The Goblin was confused.

“Chaos is my master,” it said, “I can’t help but cause destruction in my wake.”
The Soldier smiled a dazzling smile. “Then I will take care of you and keep Chaos at bay.”
The Goblin decided to take the Soldier’s offer, and so returned with him to his quarters.

Despite the Soldier’s kindness and the Goblin’s determination to not cause trouble, trouble followed the Goblin everywhere. Bookcases falling over, carriages losing control, fireworks setting off, you name it. Time and time again the Soldier would protect the Goblin, clean up after it, and calm the nerves of the townsfolk.


And so it was for many cycles of the moon, and eventually the Soldier began to tire of the constant vigilance that caring for the Goblin required. The Goblin also tired of the promises that Chaos would be defeated, and so nothing ever changed. One day, the frustration grew between them and they fought. The Soldier left the Goblin in his quarters and went for a walk to clear his head.

And then, Chaos struck again, sending out a mighty dragon. It had even devoured one of the townspeople. The Soldier, in his heroic manner, charged into the great fire eater’s belly.


And he was never heard from again.


The Kingdom’s other soldiers eventually defeated the dragon and cut its belly, finding the remains of a body inside. Some said it was the Soldier. Others said it was the townsperson who got devoured.
For its part, the Goblin decided to find out what had happened to the Soldier. Whether the Soldier was truly gone, had escaped to an island and was living it up with beautiful women, either way the Goblin wanted to know.


And Chaos follows the Goblin still, to this very day.
