  The Endless Desert
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-15-2018, 02:49 AM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Solarian Arc - No Replies

[Image: mehmet-tayfur-turkmenoglu-misir-komp2.jpg?1484394566]

The Endless Desert, located in the middle of Desolate Lands, is a dangerous area to cross. The large sand area covered around 1600 km² and the largest sandy terrain in Desolate Lands. An barren area of landscape, there is little precipitation and living conditions are hostile for most plant and animal life. Instead, monsters are quite common around these parts, preventing any permanent human settlement. There were rumors of mutant concentration in certain parts of the desert.  

Attempting to cross the desert is comparable to finding a needle in a haystack. It's a moot point. There are certain ponds of clean water, surrounded by sink holes. If you fall into one, you'll land in a different part of the desert.

Such confusion and maze-like scenarios is largely due to Dragore's influence. After the Great Wars, it abandoned its duties of protecting the land. It uses the sand and created an abundantly large castle, Neusch Castle, around itself. The Neusch Castle has a powerful barrier to prevent outsiders from entering the domain. However, if someone with extensive knowledge of magic, can break through such barrier.

Notable Areas/Information
  • Neusch Castle: A strange castle where Dragore reside in. It is protected by a powerful barrier that prevents any invaders from disturbing him. 
  • Spring Water: There are several ponds with "Spring Water", that will cleanse anyone's thirst. Do note, certain ponds are not water, but radioactive liquids. 
  • Desert Sink Holes: There are tons and tons of sink holes in the Endless Desert. Once you fall into it, you'll be spit out it to another location of the desert and thus, force to restart your travels of whatever destination you're going. They are completely randomize. 
  • Cactus Monster Tribe: There is a group of Cactus Monsters that created a tribe to support their livelihood. They are prone to pull tricks on human travelers for the laughs (and later eat them when they consumed to death from overheating, thirst, starvation).

  Stephen Hawking dies aged 76
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-14-2018, 06:03 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - No Replies

Quote:World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said.

The British scientist was famed for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

At the age of 22 Prof Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

Obituary: Stephen Hawking
A life in pictures
Reaction to his death - latest updates
The illness left him in a wheelchair and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser.

In a statement his children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."

They praised his "courage and persistence" and said his "brilliance and humour" inspired people across the world.

"He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever."

A book of condolence has been opened at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge, where Prof Hawking was a fellow.


RIP  Sad You're part of the universe now.

  Spring Anime 2018 Discussion
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-13-2018, 04:54 PM - Forum: Akiba café - No Replies




Smell that? No, it's not the coming of Spring, but the coming of fresh new animated shows coming around the corner, starting April 1st, 2018.

The purpose of the thread is to place all discussions about the new animes in one thread. You can talk about the upcoming animes, episodes, quality of the show, etc,. This is to avoid creating multitude of threads with no discussions and left for dead after a long while. If a anime in season becomes a popular topic in the thread, you have permission to spawn it into a their own.

Remember, you will be expose to spoilers as April 1st rolls around. So be caution of the thread if you haven't watch the episode yet. 

Any discuss about the upcoming animes can be discussed here. If the anime gets a lot of attention, it can become it's own thread, but for now, they can be discussed here. Certain animes that are popular, such as Boku no Hero Acamdeia, have their own threads.

  What Defines an Unnecessary Sequel?
Posted by: Grey Star - 03-12-2018, 02:44 PM - Forum: Metroham Aveune - Replies (1)

[Image: The-Godfather-Trilogy.jpg]
The Godfather Trilogy, one of the most famous cases of forced sequels ever

Unnecessary sequel: A sequel (most often to a movie) that somehow insults or defames the original due to quality (or sometime retcons), or simply adds onto a completed story in a way that is simply not needed.

So, what exactly are the parameters for an unnecessary sequel? So far I’ve found a few different types.

1. It’s a rehash of the original, or simply a bad story. Ghostbusters II is my preferred of the two movies, but the cast is ashamed of it basically being the same plot as before. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is considered a rehash of the original in terms of basic plot, but is still well liked due to the addition of interesting villains and action sequences that set it apart.
2. The sequel adds onto a completed story, and doesn’t lead to some sort of revelation or such. This is especially prevalent with completed franchises that had a “very freaking definitely the end” installment, only to get another sequel a few years later that serves little point other than “another adventure starring the hero, the comedic relief, and lacking the lancer and dark horse!” A good example of this is once again Pirates, with On Stranger Tides adding nothing to Jack’s difficulties with paying the debt of the Black Pearl / Will Smith’s character development, and aside from strong action sequences and magic, has rather lacking dialogue between anyone that isn’t Jack, Gibbs, and Barbossa. On the other hand, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set after the very final installment, and is simply interesting and well written enough to justify its own existence, and not all sequels of this kind are bad.
3. The studio mandated a sequel. The Godfather Trilogy is infamous with the second film being made because the film maker was desperate for money, and the third just to kill off the character.
4. The sequel makes a major retcon / makes the ending of the previous movie null. A good example is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A lot of people liked the movie. Doesn't change the fact it made all the work that Luke did in the original trilogy literally pointless as the new First Order is even bigger, better, and ten times as vaguely evil as the Empire was, and is pretty set on making life even worse than under the Empire. Other cases are where sequels undo a character's death so they can show up again with little to no thought or consequences, thus making everything in the previous installment about the death just null. Or even worse are sequels that introduce franchise changing retcons that either make the previous installment flat out pointless or simply impossible in the new way the universe works.

So are some of these way too nit picky or specific to form a definite definition of what an unnecessary sequel is? Or is the definition required to be specific in what it does?

  The Upcoming Mario Movie
Posted by: Grey Star - 03-02-2018, 08:02 PM - Forum: Metroham Aveune - No Replies



Text and paper formats for whichever you prefer.

Opinion piece by Nintendo Life with I Hate Everything (shoutout to Loopy)


And lastly the original mario film, which is actually amazing and captures the essence of the main game titles (the original four, New Series, etc) perfectly


In my opinion there's no way you could improve on the film above. It's simply Mario with a different Luigi turned into well, a comedy film intended for kids but it's also enjoyable for adults. Not to mention Illumination is well, Illumination.

  The Void Dojo
Posted by: Grey Star - 03-02-2018, 08:51 AM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Solarian Arc - No Replies

Theme Music

"I alone remain, after all these years."

Once known as the House of Veigan, the Home of Infinity, and the Place Beyond, the Void Dojo is the homeplace of a cult in Shia Ana. The dojo is located in the wilderness, removed from civilization, and in fact, is built underground to avoid anyone stumbling upon it accidentally, or seeking it out without being allowed to. Despite being located underground, the golden and grey hues of the dojo's construction are bathed in a profane artificial sunlight, created by the energies running through the building's walls and floors, the actual font of power buried in a chamber just under the main training area. There is an area under the chamber where the font power is stored, a barren room and empty floor. Anyone who enters the building in a friendly manner is allowed to access this area. Once locked in the area, cultists remove the safeguards of the room, allowing pure power to flow into the room and fill whoever is inside. It is rare for the cultists to partake in this ritual of "being made empty." It is rarer still for them to survive it unscathed. Instead, the visitors are the ones who primarily partake. It is in this building that study of rarely occurring variations of black magic occur, those strains deemed empty enough to be called a family of "Void." This classification of magic strains is not shared with any other mage body, because all other mages would realize that the classification is entirely arbitrary and mostly thematic rather than objective, but don't tell a cultist that.

A man known as Kolib was one of Veigan's supporters during the Crisis Era, and after his master's defeat wandered Booga to find a way, some relic of the great battles of both the Mysterious Beings and his master's forces that could set Veigan free. On the continent that would come to be called Shia Ana, Kolib was lost in the wilderness, starving, dying of thirst, cuts, poisons, and infections tearing his body apart. He had less than a day to live when he tripped from exhaustion, falling into a wellspring. Suddenly he burst from the water, healed and his youth restored. Kolib investigated this strange source of water, and because magic was not yet defined he had no idea what he had found. But he knew that it was an important discovery in freeing his master, or so he thought. This font had no only healed him, but in time he found he could not age, and with enough concentration his body would tear itself apart and reform into entirely new matter. He had become a shapeshifter, not quite monster, yet not quite human. More wandering led him to recruit others who wished to set Veigan free, setting up a cult upon the trapped god, naming the font "Noll". They returned, with knowledge of the study of magic, to the waters that Kolib had found, and excavated the area, draining the waters to reveal the pure black magic underneath, and constructed an underground facility to live, study, and worship in. As Kolib remained alive and saw his fanatics continue to die without him, his heart slowly changed. Growing older, growing wiser, he no longer saw the destruction of everything not of Chaotic energy as a blessing, but instead a curse. Waiting for his cult to die, he alone remained, and rebuilt it. But this time, his cult was not for Veigan. It was for this mysterious magic he had found and named, and he would have others worship it as the object of praise it deserved to be. Evolution took hold, and the cult's interest has spread, not just the magic that Kolib had found, but all magics in similar nature, born of dark energies, and channeling either emptiness, or infinite possibilities. At first this font called Noll was merely a powerful source of Neutral Energy that because of the fighting across Booga turned to Black Magic, set to the strain of Quantum States, otherwise known as a set of infinite possibilities that is only one possibility yet it cannot be determined until observation, but the cult's actions in adding more strains of magic to Noll has made the font more erratic and fickle with the empowerment and abilities it gives out, while also making it exponentially more deadly.

The cult's worship of their designated "Void Magics" has manifested in a lifestyle of ritual and meditation, both study and praise of what they use and fill their bodies with. The cult has been involved in dangerous incidents in the past, because Kolib does not teach on how they should use Noll (and the associated "Void Magics"), only that they praise it, some of their members have attempted to take over entire cities, only to accidentally erase them from the physical plane. Small genocides have happened from wrongful use of "Void Magics", and the Dojo refuses to see this as wrong. Though a cult that studies dangerous magics, they have a benevolent part of their teachings. Noll can heal anyone, or anything, at a price, from being exposed to the pure, raw energies of the combined magics. For Kolib he gained immortality, at the cost of losing his physical body and it being replaced with a continuous quantum state, capable of becoming anything, but never truly being physical, leaving him in dull, constant pain. Those exposed to the raw, untrained, untainted, unrestrained "Void Magics" of Noll in the heart of the Dojo may find their coin purse become colored jelly, or that their souls leave their body, or even that their limb vanishes at random. It's an unreliable, desperate form of healing, but a form of healing all the same. Those that allow themselves to be exposed without seeking healing undergo extreme DNA and magic based mutations, either gaining superhuman abilities, or ceasing to outright exist. Some members of the Meeting of the Dark gained their abilities this way. Some seeking the ability to join the Heroes Organization gain their powers this way. Those are rare and far between due to the fickle nature of Noll. Instead, many villains seeking a boon of power only to die arrive, but some leave, more powerful than ever.

Though Noll's energies can be more than fatal at times, the entire cult is still regularly exposed to raw "Void Magics" of Noll, rather than their normally controlled "Void Magics." On nights of a new moon, when the font of power is at it's highest, the entrance is sealed with a magic barrier, locking the entire building in a box. It is impossible to leave by physical manner, teleportation will kill the user if they manage to escape, and seriously damage the Dojo. For the rest of the night, all of the safeguards in the building's construction to handle Noll's energies are shut off. The end result is not only the entire cult being exposed to minor, non-dangerous but still minorly mutating slash empowering "Void Magic" energies, but also the entire building entering a Quantum state thanks to the power of Noll during these nights. For the rest of the night, the building becomes a labyrinth, an infinite set of possibilities of itself contained inside itself, allowing near infinite space to be contained in a finite space for all involved. As a result of this existing between possibilities, the ghosts of both the dead, the non-existent, and those who never existed in the first place room the phantasmal halls, all unpredictable, all inherently non-existent. However, this infinite labyrinth, everything inside, and all the Specters disappear at the first light of dawn, instantly vanishing back to non-existence as the Quantum State falls apart and all consolidates into a single reality once more. If someone doesn't make it out in time, they will never be seen again, in Upper or Lower World, or even Limbo, unless they're brought back from non-existence.
(If this fate befalls a character, they'll arrive in the Reality Vortex, and can only be brought back from non-existence by some sort of retcon magic, limited time manipulation, or a god tier mage in non-existence magic using their abilities to force the character to exist again.)

Those seeking power in some form join the cultists on the nights of the full moon to explore the infinite halls, seeking two objects. The first of these objects, and the less powerful of the two, are golden orbs with a stained glass window look to them, called "Specter Cores" that are generated from Noll's energies, creating the ghosts of the dead and non-existent in the labyrinth. These cores, when brought back to the "real world" and exposed to sunlight change into empty husks. These husks can then be used to store or bind undead spirits or elemental constructs to, providing them a permanent and mobile home from which they can be summed from.   The more powerful items however are black orbs with a white shine and green aura around them, called "Void Orbs." These orbs are pure black magic that have been equally infused with all of the different "Void Magics," and stem from Noll's own replication throughout the infinite labyrinth condensing energy in different places. These orbs are extremely valuable because being pure Black Magic means that a mage can use them as a source of power to amplify his spells from somewhere other than his own magical strength. Those of a diabolical nature value the orbs' destructive capacities, because if the orbs are affected right, they can instantly erase things from existence, including squares full of people. Lastly, machines powered by darkness or negative emotions, such as some Solarian technology or many of the machines the Meeting of the Dark uses can utilize the orbs as a long lasting fuel source, and hence any orbs turned in to the Meeting fetch a hefty pric

  Can a superhero participate in the Olympics?
Posted by: ShineCero - 02-26-2018, 02:43 AM - Forum: Discussion Table - Replies (1)

Take two different scenarios:

First Scenario:

A regular man suddenly breaks his limits during Track & Field competition, easily out speeding other runners and broke practically all records. Will his accomplishments be met? Assuming that the officials had clear him from any foul play (such as dopping, enhancements, etc), will his record-breaking feats will be accepted? Or thrown out because, after that point, it would be practically impossible for anyone to accomplished that (under the assumption that man is the first and last person to do so)? 

Second Scenario:

Suppose a man gain superhuman-like strength, should the man be allowed to participate in the Olympics? If not, would this be considered discrimination? Why or why not?

  Mass shooting plot at SoCal high school allegedly thwarted by alert security guard
Posted by: ShineCero - 02-26-2018, 02:36 AM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (1)

Quote:WHITTIER, Calif. -- Authorities say they've thwarted a student's plot for a mass shooting at a Southern California high school. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday that a security guard at El Camino High School in Whittier overhead a "disgruntled student" threaten to open fire on the school on Friday, just two days after 17 people were gunned down at a Florida high school.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida told The Associated Press deputies discovered "multiple guns and ammunition" after searching the student's home.

The suspect is a 17-year-old boy, according to the Whittier Daily News. A spokesperson for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District told the publication the boy threatened to go home and bring back a gun following a disagreement with a teacher over his headphones, which are not allowed during class.

It was unclear if the suspect has been arrested, or who purchased or owns the weapons, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Officials scheduled a news conference for Wednesday.


Jesus, thank goodness the security guard took measures and report to the police about this kid. Otherwise, we'll be hearing more "thoughts and prayers".
