Memorial [Chat]

ThomamelasThomamelas Only one man can kill this many Russians. Bring his guitar to me! Registered User regular
On September 19, 1989, UTA Flight 722 going from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to Paris, crashed in the Tenere region of Niger. All 170 people on board were lost. The investigation of the wreckage found traces of PENT in the wreckage. PENT is a primary ingredient of Semtex, a plastic explosive. There are other plastic explosives it could be, but Semtex was a favorite of Libyan intelligence services. And the French investigation into the crash found a connection between the Libyan intelligence service and the terrorist group claiming responsibility.

The general belief is that this was revenge for France's participation in the Toyota War. It's profile is consistent with other acts of state sponsored terrorism conducted by Libya, even down to the use of Samsonite luggage.

Eighteen years later, the families gathered to make a memorial for the victims. They began by having rocks brought in from 35 miles away. The crash site sits in the Tenere region of Niger, and it is very much what one thinks of when one thinks of a desert. Large swaths of sand and nothing else.

Then they began to build the memorial by hand. They gathered the stones in a circle and began to fill them in. 170 broken mirrors, one for each victim was placed on the outer circle.

The starboard wing was used to hold the plaque containing the names of the victims.

    Cinders, you have a limit set of choices. You can self out or do nothing. Self out has the advantage of giving you control of the situation but only you can judge if that's a good idea in all cases. Or you can see what he does. Likely nothing. But sitting there in fear paralysis won't give you a solution.

    The skin might tighten up a little bit, but unfortunately if it's been loose for a long time I wouldn't expect miracles.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I deem that we are talking about a shitroom, a vulgar name for a toilet.

    They have a steak delivery service for those using the facilities.

    They want to ensure the water remains hygienic.

    I am having so much fun with it. Adventure mode turns the unique mobs and bosses into bounties to be hunted down for big rewards. Certain groups of bounties will get you extra rewards.

    The Crusader is absolutely epic. I drop in on a group of mobs accompanied by a blast and a tornado that stuns, blast them with a sweeping strike that can also stun, hit them with a delayed explosion that does crazy damage and then my regular attack? Explosion that can also stun.

    The Crusader has an aura. Only one on your skill set at a time, but it has an ongoing passive effect just for being on your hotkeys (The one I am using increases me and my party's attack speed). But wait, you can also activate it (For about 5 seconds I get 2500 life per hit). The passive effect is not affected by the cooldown on the active. :)

    Oh, and I have an ability that reduces incoming damage by 50% and does crazy high thorns damage back at attackers.

    So much fun you guys.

    I hear Crusaders in D3 expack have Barbarians at launch syndrome; not enough damage for too high a cooldown on most of their stuff.

    I also hear tell Heaven's Fury used to one shot things.

    The solution is clear.

    Kinda. I found the Crusader fun right away, but then in the teens it turned into a bit of slog. That didn't last long and once you get past level 20 or so, it gets better fast.
