Welcome to The New Inquisition!

With over nine years of history, TNI is one of the oldest active player-made regions on NationStates. Originally one of the
most infamous raiding powers, TNI was the first and only region to conquer the Rejected Realms. We have gradually transitioned into an active RP region.

Surely you would KNOW that a Lechite is not a dragon.


Yea, we do.

I assume that in ancient times it was assumed you had the same primordial ancestor in Valrish religion, who is of course a demonic entity. But as the Valrish relationship with religion got murkier through rebels in the Church, Imperial meddling, and new heretical beilefs popping up, that stigma was reduced in scale.

Well, we do have horns, so thats justified.
Horns just radiate with evil.

(In all honesty, any reptillian race will be evil and or 'neutral douche'. There are never good ones.
Even Lechites I would classify as Lawful evil. Or at least: 'Lawful smart')

Also, lets reclassify the D&D alignments shall we?
Lawful good=Lawful Dumb
Neutral good=Lazy and confused
Chaotic good=Im a filthy thief and I probably burned down the last town we were in
Lawful neutral=Bureacrat Neutral
True neutral=Dude weed lmao
Chaotic neutral=ADHD neutral
Lawful evil=Lawful smart
Neutral evil=Get away from my shekels goyim
Chaotic evil=I eat babies and burn orphanages

Even for a pathetic nerd like me, I can't get over the social stigma of D&D before. Which is weird because I've roleplayed before, but just not D&D or anything tabletop, for some reason that's the line I'm not crossing.

You call me a Bureaucrat Neutral?!... Yeah, I can see that.

Tabletops are amazing. I got into them through two routes: Warhammer was super popular when I was like 12, and I was doing a lot of art so painting miniatures was the step before playing with them. At the same time, playing CRPGs like Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale; same system, but this time with actual people who I like to mess around with rather than a computer deciding everything. Also way less restrictive.

The Imperial Republic of Kiezer wrote:Here's a discussion for the region:
In "House of Cards," CNN and Fox News, amongst other news channels, appear with their real life hosts and treat the events of the series as though they were actually reporting on it.
Since pretty much all of us on the RMB understand that the mainstream news channels, like Fox and CNN, are mostly just sensationalized "news" that are more concerned about their ratings than journalism, do you think appearing on a fictional show proves that they exist primarily for entertainment?
To put it in a better way; do you think it hurts the credibility of these channels, or am I over thinking it and just being a party pooper?

It would be hard for anything to hurt the credibility of Faux News.

Reminds me however of the old Usenet Soc.History.What-if which used to regularly comment on RL events as if episodes of "The West Wing" in an alternative timeline - generally mocking the implausibility of events.

The Free Scientific Paradise of The Emerald World wrote:wtf is Ed Balls day

A few years ago, UK politician Ed Balls, new to Twitter accidentally tweeted his name "Ed Balls", nothing else, with no explanation. With typical sardonic humour, after various explanations were consider it was taken to be an announcement of Ed Balls Day, and commemorated each year since, helped by the fact that he took it in good part (a rarity for modern politicians).

So basically a in-joke for (mostly) UK Twitter users.
