Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / I want to speak with dzrtr1

The general rule of thumb is that alts should not interact in a way so that result of the interaction would produce an unfair advantage to players who do not have alts.

Based on that framework we have some clear points. The safest thing to do would be to sit out; sitting out would clearly not be a violation. In contrast, a clear violation would be if both alts were in one faction or if the alts are in different factions and one alt deliberately lost their battles in order to give the alt on the opposing side.

Things become quite murkier where both alts are on opposing factions and both are fighting, or when one alt sits out. Depending on how knight templar people want to be about it, these might also be considered violations.

I’m generally more lenient because I reject slippery slope arguments off-hand, so I probably would not have thought what you were doing a clear violation of our no cheating code. I kind of fail to see how either of your accounts would have gained any advantage over a player without an alt. But that may not reflect the attitudes of some of our more conservative members.

Anyways, if that’s all you’ve done, then you’re fine in my books, noting that my books are not reflective of P. rex conventions.

That is unless I’m supposed to be the Knight Templar, in which case I will be coming for you with a Flaming Sword of Justice. If dzrtr and I were both male, that statement would be quite homoerotic. If I were male and dzrtr female, it would be sexually harrassing. If I were female and dzrtr male, it would be ironic. And if we were both female, well then I don’t know. Alas, this is the internet and everyone is female and the final conclusion I arrive at is I don’t know. I do know, however, that my dualist approach to categorizing human gender is pretty bigoted.

If memory serves me right, there was a period of time known as the Blackfyre rebellion where a crew of P. rex alts in an unofficial sister faction declared a war against their mains in P. rex proper. I can’t remember what the casus belli was, probably independence or show superiority or something. It might have had something to do with successions and claiming thrones, it’s pretty hard to discern due to the propaganda efforts on both sides. The rebellion was ultimately defeated, but I seem to recall that the mains didn’t fight against their alts. It was pretty close though.

Mock Orange (Louise Glück)

It is not the moon, I tell you.
It is these flowers
lighting the yard.

I hate them.
I hate them as I hate sex,
the man’s mouth
sealing my mouth, the man’s
paralyzing body—

and the cry that always escapes,
the low, humiliating
premise of union—

In my mind tonight
I hear the question and pursuing answer
fused in one sound
that mounts and mounts and then
is split into the old selves,
the tired antagonisms. Do you see?
We were made fools of.
And the scent of mock orange
drifts through the window.

How can I rest?
How can I be content
when there is still
that odor in the world?

Just to be clear, you’re saying that you can reprogram sexual orientation?

Oh dear.

Is having a sexual preference for one gender or another sexist? Is having a sexual preference for one race or another racist?

And to the good, who know how wide the gulf, how deep,
Between Ideal and Real, who being good, have felt
The final temptation to withdraw, sit down and weep.
We pray the power to take upon themselves the guilt
Of human action, though still as ready to confess
The imperfection of what can and must be built,
The wish and power to act, forgive and bless.

If you were truly progressive, you would be targeting white males for systemic disadvantageous discrimination.

Noting the existence of a more regressive position does not exempt your own position from being regressive. Something about Kettleblacks and Hippogriffs. Can’t trust trice-damned sell-swords or free companies.

We’re going to skip over the obvious human rights violations strewn about your recommendation. I’m sure someone else can articulate an argument about why targeting a historically disadvantaged group for systemic discrimination is a bad plan. I’m going to talk about science.

mtDNA and Y-chromosome are lineage markers only for direct-female-to-female or direct-male-to-male ancestors, respectively. For example, you can have a female who is phenotypically of european-descent (14/16) but turn up genetically as asian-descent and african-descent based on your tests if the maternal-maternal-[great]-grandmother (1/16) was of asian-descent and the paternal-paternal-[great]-grandfather (1/16) was african-descent. Given that neither mtDNA nor the Y-chromosome encodes any genes that contribute to the social construction of identity, I’d say you’re going after the wrong markers.

Speaking of which, phenotypic expression has a much larger role in the construction of identity than underlying genetics. The social construction of race is more based on folk beliefs than science. If you want an objective measure, just come up with a set of physical metrics that coincide with what people use to gauge ethnicity. Oh wait, that’s subjective. Hmmm…

You missed the point of OOHnirav’s post (of which factionless players is but a tangential point that does nothing to contribute to his main thesis), which has an analogous logic to: “you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole; you run into assholes all day, you’re the asshole.” – Raylan Givens.

I won a few surges when I forgot to switch from my Epic Lithid deck. Don’t think it’s consistent enough against top level def decks though.
