    Dissonance? Sometimes works.

    I'll take odd-numbered time-signatures any day, though.

    Brubeck's Take Five being a prominent example.

    EDIT: Yeah, I know the difference between cognitive and musical dissonance. I'm just fucking bored at work and looking for a way to kill myself..or somebody.

    What exactly are the rules and time guidelines are required to follow? Is it person or niche exclusive, obviously besides Omega who was mention in the initial post.

    Has an addendum been made to the initial rules threads, at least a sticky? Something?

    STFU Noob!

    ^ None of which suggests WHY anyone should be nice to n00bs.

    No reason...no logic...no compliance.

    Typing rabidly can only be done in the absence of anger.

    Oh damn, Fake. He nailed you now. He has discovered that you are an old-school touch-typist who learned to type before there were smart phones. How are you going to live down the shame? I'll bet you know how to break words for hyphenation at line breaks, like we did sometimes in the olden times, too. Don't worry, though, I won't tell anyone that you've probably even used Liquid Paper.

    Fixed that for you.

    Oh, and I'm a karateka...but the kind who knows the error of your logic.

    Depends of the rules of the game you are playing. What if he is an Orc with a higher armor class and you still level 1. Or do maybe you pretend to be vampires when you LaRP your fight scenes?

    So, when we were little kids my cousin did karate and used to whoop me all kinds of times. He belonged to a nice rough and tumble school where they even mixed a little judo into the curriculum.

    Fast forward about 15 years at Thanksgiving and we're putting some tables back into the garage. We pass this free-standing heavy bag in the corner and I slipped whatever invisible left hand I imagine the bag was throwing and counter with a lead hook to the body, as is my custom with inanimate objects. My cousin looked at me mystified. Not in any condescending type of way, but with genuine wonder, he asked me if I'd really throw shots like that. I then gave a brief explanation of slipping and hooking punches.

    The dude's mind looked blown. He did not have an opinion on the efficacy on this basic maneuver. He just realized that he had trained a fighting art from early childhood until his late teens and still stayed kind of interested in it all his life and never even thought of moving with those kinds of angles. And thus my problem with fighting styles.

    Also, we're in a post-style world anyway. Technique is governed by rules sets, not tradition.

    Your party can always roll D20 for a chance to resist magic due to the enchanted cloaks they pick up in the last quest. ;)
