General Discussion / Re: Big List of THE LAST JEDI Criticisms (Spoilers)

What is Art? 

Normal communication is like a window. 

I present information to you through that window, and likewise you to me.  We want that window to be as clear as possible so that our mutual understanding is also as clear as possible, with as few misunderstandings as possible. 

Art is both a window and a mirror.

The artist provides information through the medium, but the audience for that art brings something of their own.  The audience is free, if not encouraged, to explore the art through their own personal lens.  Each individual audience member will see connections, meanings, and nuances beyond that which the artist provided.  They will assign values, make judgments, and respond emotionally in ways that are as unique to themselves as their own image in a mirror. 

And, as a general rule, the more like a mirror a piece of art is, the higher the art.

I found several different categories in reviews for FRUA and DC modules, e.g.:
  • Story, Events and Riddles, Graphics, Presentation, Gameplay
  • Plot Matter, Artwork, Hacks, Text, Events, Originality, Errors, Difficulty
  • Story Execution, Encounters, Bug Control, Innovativity

As soon as Paul and I are not fixing bugs, I will take some time to play and review some designs. Maybe we should encourage peopple who don't want to write a review to at least rate the designs they play? Perhaps we could even suggest some categories?

In a lighter vein...    ;D

Here's an animated spoof of The Last Jedi movie trailer:

This is not Last Jedi, but it is Luke & Yoda:

I really need to write some reviews.

Same here, but due to work, I had not much time for playing DC designs during January.
But it would be great if we had more opinions (if not complete reviews) for those designs he have not been discussed at all here in the forum (or elsewhere).

Paul — so instead of “IsMammal” you could have an SA called TaxonomicClass for each animal and give it parameters like “Mammal”, “Bird”, “Amphibian”, etc?

That is correct. You don't need to scrunch it all together, either. "Taxonomic Class" would work just as well.
You would use the $GET_COMBATANT_SA() function to retrieve the SA parameter that you set, i.e. "Mammal", "Bird", etc. If there is no value, but the SA exists, it will return "". If the SA does not exist, it will reutrn "-?-?-".

Okay, my friend, I have voted. I really need to write some reviews. I really need to release some designs. I really need to make videos of me playing designs to put on youtube. ;)
