Yin's Tradelocke RulesetThis is a nuzlocke rule system I came up with awhile back, but never bothered to write down. It's basically a variation of the popular dual-locke with more emphasis on collaborative play.Yin's Tradelocke Ruleset2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay! First step, find a friend who loves Pokemon and nuzlockes as much as you do.
Got one? Good! Moving on~
You and your friend will need:
A Nintendo handheld system
Compatible Pokemon games (e.g. Platinum & SoulSilver, Black 2 & White, etc.)
A method of trading (link cable, IR, wi-fi, etc.)
Standard nuzlocke rules apply:
Catch only the first pokemon on each route, cave, ocean, etc.
If a pokemon faints, it's dead.
As far as additional rules go, it doesn't matter what you use as long as you and your partner use the same ones.
Now, onto the tradelocke rules:
After every 2 badges, the trainers must pick 3 pokemon to battle each other.
Winner gets to pick one of the opponent's 3 p
Power Rangers is NEVER a Rip-off Of Super Sentai Article http://www.orendsrange.com/2013/08/why-power-rangers-is-not-super-sentai.htmlPower Rangers is NEVER a Rip-off Of Super Sentai2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In ALL Honesty, it really is not nor ever was a Rip-off, I also believe that many fans in Truth understand and acknowledge this, its....
Just that most of us wish... that maybe not all but most of the Rangers to be Adapted in a more... logical or Better way.. and maybe Equal, not necessarily in terms of theme, culture and such but... in.. quality of the character
That is what we mostly fear the most.
Example: The 1st Green Power Ranger most probably is in the hearts of Many fans forever for millions of reasons, but as a kid back then... I wish i got to see him face losing his powers in the same maturity as Dragon Ranger faced his coming fate and not mop about it instead...
About: Frame WarsSo, here's the thing: after working on quite a bunch of board games as an illustrator, I decided to roll up my sleeves and do one of my own! Or better yet, a collaboration with Level 99 Games, with me and Brad Talton (L99's overlord, and creator of board games like BattleCON and Pixel Tactics) working together on the gameplay, and me handling the lore (world, characters, etc) and artwork.About: Frame Wars2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always been a big fan of mecha anime, like Gundam, Gaogaigar, TTGL, Getter Robo, etc. Also, it kinda upsets me that us westerns aren't getting much mecha-themes videogames, SPECIALLY the Super Robot Taisen series! I know, licensing's a b*tch, but there's no excuse for the Original Generation spin-offs!
So we started a project of our own, called Frame Wars! This is a combat board game featuring giant robots beating the living crap outta one another (if that alone doesn't get you
'Change' (poem)"No one sees me for who I am,'Change' (poem)8 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
Everyone thinks of themselves, no one gives a damn.
I shall remain in this dark corner to weep,
I will hate myself forever, let me go to sleep.
I refuse to change my attitude,
Because of me, everybody is in feud.
I refuse to change my mind,
Let me rot here, I will never shine.
I refuse to change my life,
Cut me up so I can bleed, I never want to fly a kite.
I refuse to change my future,
Death awaits me, there is no cure.
I refused to change...
Until I broke out of my chains.
The day of my realization,
I had changed my pain.
Let me change my attitude,
To learn friendship and the feeling of gratitude.
Let me change my mind,
So that I may forever be kind.
Let me change my life,
So that one day, I can watch my kids fly a kite.
Let me change my future,
So I can help those who feel poor.
Let me change, I can be better,
Give me one day, I shall be greater."
"Change" by Cruz, Phillip.
SPREAD THE WORD.
I dedicate this to my friends who are struggling with hardship
Lived Long and ProsperedThe great Leonard Nimoy has died, age 83.Lived Long and Prospered5 months ago in Personal More Like This
There’s not really much I can write about the chap or his impact on sci-fi culture that you’re not already aware of. We all knew and loved him as Spock from Star Trek. Hell, I named one of my webcomic’s characters after him.
Nimoy never forgot about his fans, either, and how it is they who ensured his lasting popularity. It’s telling that it was he who cameoed in the recent Trek films and not Shatner.
Being the awesome man he was, his final words to the public (by way of twitter) were “LLAP”.
“Live Long and Prosper”.
A quick tip about scanning non photo blueI figured I would put this in my journal just in case anyone has any trouble with removing non photo blue lines from their scanned images in Photoshop. Here's what I do:A quick tip about scanning non photo blue5 years ago in Personal More Like This
An easy way to remove non-photo blue in Photoshop is with a Hue/Saturation shift. Scan the image in full color. Then convert the image to CMYK in the Image drop down menu, then mode, then CMYK. Then in Photoshop press Ctrl+U. This opens a dialogue box for changing colors. Select "Cyan" from the drop-down menu (where it says "Master") and drop the Saturation all the way down (all the blue lines should turn gray) and then ramp the Brightness all the way up (the blue lines should disappear). Do the same with "Blue", and then if you want to be really secure do it for all the colors in the drop-down menu. Now convert your image to Grayscale and with a little Curves adjustment you'll have a perfectly clean black-and-white image.
Hope this helps anyone out there that are still learning the ropes of Photoshop.

(FACT: It's not just because some of us have crappy vision.)
I know some of you like the effect, but here's the deal: do whatever you want on your own monitor and keep your hands off mine.
Did you know that, in Windows, holding Ctrl and moving the scroll wheel up or down changes font size? You do now, and it's not much harder to change zoom size on a Mac (I hear it is most likely cmd++ or cmd+- , cmd+0 reverts it to the original size). I know it's just as easy in Linux, anyway.
I already have my browser's text size display set to what I want, thank you very much.
Anyone who uses Word must be familiar with the concept of font size in points: 12pt Times New Roman, especially, when it comes to turning in essays for teachers. (And 13pt periods for those of you who couldn't hit that minimum page count )
Well, here's the deal: Web display doesn't work quite the same way. You can force all text to be 16

"So we here on Team ROE have some fantastic breaking news... WE'RE GOING TO 12 ISSUES!!!
First off, the team is beyond excited to continue telling some stories in the ROE world, but even more so, we're all so very thankful to the fans that have gone out of their way to support the book and spread the word. Sales numbers (you know, those really important things in the eyes of publishers) are steady for now, but still not great. That being said, any slight dip could bring us right back in the category of "on the chopping block" and that's not somewhere we want to be. Holding steady will be wonderful, but getting numbers up would be even better (and a very rare feat for any comic).
It is our firm belief that the best stuff is yet to come and there's way more that we would like to do. So for now, we're going to 12 issues and we owe it all to everyone that has purchased the book, pre-ordered (PLEASE continue to pre-order... it's so important), w

So thanks for tuning everyone~
To make this easier on everyone, and since I have no idea how long this is going to end up being, I just decided I was going to organize the chapters of this fanfic into a journal entry. I'll link this journal at the bottom of the deviations for my ease and yours, so you can come here and find previous chapters. I will update this journal as I write.
For some background information on this fanfic, it's a slash fiction (so you've been warned if that's not your thing) between Soundwave and Dreadwing. It takes place after Triangulation and Triage. After that, it branches off into it's own storyline apart from the TV series. Most of it will be from Dreadwing's POV, but I will intersperse it with occasional Soundwave chapters. Consider this paying homage to THE mysterious mech. I feel I should respect that part of his personality. Early warning, I am writing ROMANCE, not smut, so don't come in e
*RP Rules and EtiquetteWell now, it seems that a lot of people on DA, and across the internet for that matter, have a huge misconception about what Role Playing actually is, let alone the fact that they have no idea how to do it properly. Most of those who are clueless are children (under 18) who not only have no idea what they are doing, but also clearly had no proper instruction, or very bad instruction, on how to Role Play correctly, let alone proper Role Play etiquette. The rest of the clueless ones that are actually adults are one of four things: generally ignorant and need proper instruction, received bad instruction on how to RP, are arrogant jerks who think they are the center of the RP, or are drama queens seeking attention and will throw a childish tantrum if they don't get their way.*RP Rules and Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now I have to admit, I cried. When the Doctor said goodbye to his companions... his audioplay companions, who up til now were only apocryphal, and are now fully, unquestionably canon... I started choking up. The Doctor started out his Eighth life so brimming with optimism and a romantic love for life, only to end broken, alone, and... scared.
Nine’s death made me smile because he went out with such bittersweet panache. Ten’s ridiculously-emo death made me roll my eyes. Eight is the only Doctor to actually make me shed tears. Bless you, Paul.
