I imagine monarchs in the beginning would have had shorter reigns due to conflict and what-have-you
@KaliFyre How many changes in ruling family do you think there should have been? I'm thinking one or two

I'll go with the optimistic estimate.
Two.
I am leaving now. Brian is playing 200GB of Vines and I feel the need to kill myself due to the pure essence of retardation these vines contain.
Going to see a friend before I lose my fucking mind.
Never mind, he stopped them when I asked.

I'm not sure about Hoenn, but iDevices are either unpopular and/or markedly different in Safiria than their Terran equivalents, because Apple openly flouts anti-censorship laws, among others, in the way it handles the iTunes Store, among other things, not to mention its closed-source operating systems and use of DRM (edited)
Avatar
Vāstra II 30-Jun-16 07:11 AM
iDevices intended for distribution within the Safirian Empire must be made in accordance with Safirian labor laws, i.e. by employees who are treated humanely and afforded the same benefits as are an employee of Apple Computer or any other Safirian company, and forbidden by statute from working more than 48 hours per week without express written consent (in which case any more work is paid for in triplicate) (edited)
Chinese-made iThingies are rejected by customs and sent back to Cupertino on Apple's dime. (edited)
The same applies for any other mobile device company that commits similar labor law/human rights abuses.
Hell, some people prefer to import Safirian iPhones because of stuff like that. (edited)

The concept is called induced demand, which is economist-speak for when increasing the supply of something (like roads) makes people want that thing even more. Though some traffic engineers made note of this phenomenon at least as early as the 1960s, it is only in recent years that social scientists have collected enough data to show how this happens pretty much every time we build new roads.

"Female safir weigh 140 to 220 pounds, while males weigh 110 to 170. Male safir are rarely seen in public, due to their scarcity (only one boy is born for every five girls) and their closely protected nature.

«20.57.22» <Carl_Miller> Idea: The Safirian Empire has a multi-sport event similar to the Olympic Games. Corollary idea: Athletes compete in the nude, as did the Greeks in the ancient Olympics. There are at least a few sports (swimming and cycling come most readily to mind) where this would be a functional difference. «20.58.02» <Digifanatic> How you gonna swim or cycle with all that hair? =P «20.58.16» <Carl_Miller> True XP «20.58.35» <Carl_Miller> But I was thinking about how the presence or absence of certain clothes, or indeed clothes at all, affects the athlete's performance «20.59.14» <Carl_Miller> (see: the aerodynamic suits and helmets that cyclists have now, or the Paul Biedermann swimsuit fiasco from 2009) «20.59.32» <Digifanatic> What was the swimsuit fiasco? «20.59.57» <Carl_Miller> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arena_X-Glide#Controversy «21.05.40» <Digifanatic> Ah «21.14.03» <Carl_Miller> I imagine there are some exceptions to the rule (stickfighting, ғᴇɴᴄɪɴɢ, wrestling, sprinting, the as-yet-unnamed martial art not dissimilar to a mélange of judō and aikidō that I've mentioned on reddit) «21.14.27» <Digifanatic> Really, wrestling? «21.14.33» <Digifanatic> Oh, because of hair? =P «21.15.10» <Carl_Miller> For protective purposes, also to help enforce the ban on grabbing your opponent's genitals «21.17.24» <Carl_Miller> (and of course those sports where where identifying a player or team by the usual practice of writing numbers down their side is infeasible) «21.17.52» <Digifanatic> Oh I see «21.23.20» <Carl_Miller> ᴄᴀᴘᴏᴇɪʀᴀ is also excepted in order to allow for protective gear «21.26.22» <Carl_Miller> though of course athletes can ignore the exception at their own peril; stickfighting, for example, contains a rule whereby the result of a bout can be reversed if the winner has taken more visible damage (usually bruises) than the loser
Arena X-Glide is a swimsuit from the Arena brand, made of pure polyurethane that causes a swimmer to slide through water faster when swimming. One notable example of the efficacy of this suit design is that of Paul Biedermann of Germany who wore the suit in the 2009 World Championships, breaking two world records. The design of the suit covers basically the whole torso and the legs with the impermeable polyurethane, thereby exposing less skin to the water and improving the swimmer's buoyancy and streamlined...

Well fuck. It looks like Safirian dragons are too big to be plausible without the atmosphere being too thick and too toxic for humanoids, nevermind the fact that they're also too big to fly. 😦

So I had an idea for a http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TailorMadePrison for some Safirian übercriminal or another: a cubical, perfectly psychically shielded chamber deep in the bowels of an officially unoccupied prison world, with no furnishings save for a hole in the ground to shit in. The prisoner, meanwhile, is kept pharmaceutically stillminded via tampering with her food, has her hair ripped out before being sent down, and is allowed no personal effects whatsoever. And, of course, there are several ways for the watchwomen to subdue her when she transgresses the rules or the laws of the outside world. (edited)
The Tailor-Made Prison trope as used in popular culture. A personal Alcatraz made with special precautions to stop this one person from escaping. If he has a …
may or may not be a bit mad. (edited)
Idea 2 is a several-meters-thick full-body cast made of antipsionic material, with the prisoner being fed, kept pharmaceutically stillminded, and relieved of waste by a system of tubes, with a thick red line on the ground a good while away (in a building probably at least the size of an airplane hangar) that no person, not even the guards, may cross, lest said guards, or the prisoner, kills them.

Inquizition would be good on Safirian TV, in the form of a massive tournament, with segments also showing the arcane and secret world behind the exams
The normal Inquizitrix would be a silvery-haired emotionless disciplinarian (think Anne Robinson) who was the Airumàli voice of Rei Ayanami, though the other members of the Board of Examination also conduct inquizitions from time to time

I should see professional soccer sometime
I had a lot of friends in high school and some in college that played
I also work at Pratt & Whitney, which means I work right next to a college football stadium that often hosts international friendlies, but they almost always sell out quick when they do--besides I think MLS would be more fun
My family and I also went to DC several years back and RFK Stadium just happened to be hosting a US/Honduras match during our stay, so we saw a bunch of Honduran fans coming up and staying in the hotel we were in, that was kinda neat
That's the great thing about events like soccer and wrestling (and sometimes football)--the producers don't even bother to mute the crowd and the commentators don't even bother to apologize

Mainland Safiria, at least in its urban areas, has an extremely robust power system, wired for more than half again as much electricity as it presently uses, with all the components being deliberately overengineered.
The worst that could happen is a fusion reactor blowing up, which is nowhere near as bad as a fission reactor.

Being jailed when the Empress dies would suck big time. Why? All Crown appointments expire on the demise of the Crown. This means that you have to wait for the period of mourning to end, the funeral, the coronation, and new federal judges, etc. to be appointed, as well as and state judge appointments if you were collared at that level.

Whether you pick up the June 2008 issue or the March 2012 issue, you're still getting all the same shit, including items like "567 fun knitting crafts to help stave off boredom!" and "Make a time out mean it!" and "Why is your husband such a lazy sack of shit?"

A note: The realignment of orbital characteristics brought on by the general fine-tooth comb of World Building June has caused a change in the length of the Daian year, from approx. 12 Terran months to 14.616 of the same.
Such are the consequences of playing fast and loose with the Universe.

So for some reason I started thinking about Safirian fencing while messing around with Ashrain early this morning. It would obviously use some manner of sword that's pretty much useless out of context, like a rapier or bat'leth (though at lower levels, wooden implements similar to shinai are used instead, for safety purposes). Due to the safir's telepathic nature, however, actual contact between the fencers is uncommon, with most phrases instead being of thoughts and counter-thoughts and formation of mental defenses, and with a system of “virtual points” set up to avoid an unending litany of scoreless draws. The piste is defined by “metes” (sidelines) 12 meters long and “bounds” (end lines) four meters wide. Owing to the sport's origins in a ritual to honor the gods of the Sevenfold Path, fencers traditionally wear ornate robes and masks, though Terran-style fencing suits are also becoming common. Instead of saluting each other with their swords, fencers kneel (or curtsy or squat) to the judge and to each other before the match. The entire front of the body is a valid target, and scoring is as follows: • Contact: 1 real point • Casting aside (forcing a turned-aside opponent to step out of bounds): 1 real point and -1 virtual point • Crossing dimensions (contacting, or turning aside, an opponent from out of bounds): -1 real point • Boxing (making intentional bodily contact with an opponent): -1 real point and -1 virtual point • Cornering (moving an opponent past their own bound): 1 virtual point • Moving onward (being closer to forming an attack thought than the opponent after 24 ðagiai [20.83̄ s]): 1 virtual point • Turning aside (moving the opponent so that they are parallel to a mete): 1 virtual point • Passing (extending the sword tip past the opponent, even if they are turned aside in the process): -1 virtual point • Turning back (moving the opponent so that they are facing their own bound): -1 virtual point (edited)

I don't have a clue what any of that means... but that's because I don't know the rules of fencing.

Vāstra II 19-Jun-17 10:20 AM
I somehow turned fencing into a psychic duel, basically 😛
Of course, like any good sport, there are both draws (when both fencers have the exact same number of real and virtual points) and ties (when both fencers have the exact same number total points, but the real and virtual point counts differ) (edited)

[9:18 PM] [HON/IRS] Hālian: Because over time it turned from actual fencing more into a psychic duel, with each fencer trying to ferret out the other's intentions while masking their own, and they would often spend appeciable amounts of time not attacking because of such; why a separate type of point was implemented nobody's quite sure, but cornering and turning/casting aside used to be fouls

@Bijaro the Pallisican I wonder what the weather on Daia is like, and specifically in Firneramnen (mainland Safiria), and even more specifically whether Aňira would be battered by regular hurricanes or gigantic ones because lolworldocean 😛
(and here's a physical map of Daia, as well as a political map of Firneramnen, for context. Daia has retrograde rotation.)
Avatar
Bijaro the Pallisican 17-Jul-17 01:31 PM
Assuming it's basically earth-like in terms of size and distance from its sun, then yeah, i'd imagine there would be some really intense hurricanes
If it's too cold then hurricanes may not be a huge issue
What is the explanation for those islands over in the western bits?
are those volcanic islands like hawaii?
or is there something like a sunken continent over there?
if it's the latter then that'll have an impact on what weather will be like

I'm not sure, but given that Daia has no plate tectonics, a volcanic origin seems highly unlikely

Bijaro the Pallisican 17-Jul-17 01:40 PM
Has it never had plate tectonics?
Or were there plate tectonics in the past, but the processes have stopped?
the latter seems much more likely

Do you have the server muted? Because Discord should put a little gray circle next to the server logo whenver there's new messages
