KC IS KILL CONTAINMENT THREAD Bernd 03/25/2018 (Sun) 15:42:43 [Preview] No. 15205 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hello yes KC is kill.
You are free to use this board as your temporal refugee or to move here permanently. However, please refrain from creating more threads about state of main KC and related stuff. Instead


I will be removing all threads regarding this topic that will be made after this announcement.

This is much smaller board compared to what you were used to on KC main and things works bit differently here. I am doing this to prevent some quality threads from being deleted because of influx of pointless threads regarding same topic.
If you want to discuss some general topic like news, games, music etc. please check the catalog first if such thread isn't created already and use that thread.

Other than that there is not much moderation here so feel free to post whatever (remember the global rules though).

To be honest it seems like the various KC posters all want different things out of their board hence why there were a number of alternatives to begin with.
I hope they find what they're looking for, be it serious discussion or simple apu posting.

Game wasn't too fun, I liked JA2 more, but I can't remember why. Maybe I'll try it someday, but I don't have windows now so it needs to be runnable in wine at least. And I need to download it from some torrents because I have no CD drive now.

I'd like to tell you about the wonders of "Hungarian cottage cheese" or "körözött" (cca. circled) as we call it.
It's cottage cheese (cow or sheep or the mix of both, my favourit is a 50-50 mix but I usually eat pure cow's) mixed with red paprika powder, caraway/cumin, fine chopped onion, salt, butter and/or sour cream. I like it with butter and very little sour cream.
Eat it as a spread with tomatoes, radishes, paprika etc.

Blogpost. I have half a box of Twinings tea I only drink it occasionally as it's considered a more expensive and finer brand. I noticed however I crossed the expiration date. The tea's still fine so I decided I drink it fast. Now I drink 1,5 l Twinings Earl Gray on daily basis. Feels good, man.

The finished product. You can see how the soup looks creamy. All the onions, tomato slices, paprikas are dissolved, with some potatoes as well. It could endured a little more dried paprika for more redness (and maybe more salo and onions) but it's all right.

Pic #14
A portion. With bread, a slice or two per person, the whole thing can feed four people. It was simple but tasty. Some people like to add other veggies and different seasoning, it's all fine, but I've seen people put general soup spice mix into it which I think is a sacrilege.

And that's it.
Maybe I'll make some other stuff in the future. I can't promise anything but May 1 is close now it could give another occasion. I might cook lecsó (lecho).

Thanks, I always wanted to cook self-made Gulasch and Irish stew. I will use beef. Is that intended that you don't use garlic?

Bernd 04/22/2018 (Sun) 20:19:39 [Preview] No.16168 del
Yes. I know noone personally who puts garlic into the gulyás. It's not irregular, pretty much everything can go what's "normal" for European seasoning. I remember such garden cooking when we used cumin and saffron because why not and I know people who prefer it with lots of parsley leaves. The tomato and the fresh paprikas I used are also optional, and more can be added by the end of the cooking process to keep those intact and biteable.
Also the soup doesn't need to be this short on water but generally one wants it to be at least somewhat thick. In school cafeterias they usually serve it very watery but still can taste fine, I also prefer it more soupy if it's cooked in the kitchen.

Role Playing Games Bernd 12/17/2017 (Sun) 20:40:33 [Preview] No. 12621 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I want to begin a new series about a Hungarian pen and paper role playing game I've already mentioned in other thread(s). It's called M.A.G.U.S. - Kalandorok Krónikái (Chronicles of Adventurers) and I wish to guide you through it's history, world and maybe even rules. Frankly I'm not well prepared and most likely not the best person for the job, but, well, I'm the only one here and this is the best it's gonna get.
IRL talking with a real M.A.G.U.S. fan about M.A.G.U.S. is a real herculean challange as they can be extremely assburgerish about insignificant details, they can cite some careless comment from an obscure magazine's unknown article anytime and consider it rock solid canon they can base their opinion. It's worse to play it with an experienced fanatic as they are capable arguing to the point of the knife with the Kalandmester or Mesélő (Adventure Master or Tale Teller/Story-Teller, the DM, it's KM from no on) even if everyone knows the First Rule: the KM is always right.

Of course any other rpg can be discussed here, but I'd like to keep this thread for pnp or tabletop rpgs, crpgs should go into the Vidya thread.

>1st pic
This is the Első Törvénykönyv (First Code of Law or Rulebook, from now on ETK). It was published in 1997 for the first time.
>2nd pic
The Nagy Zöld (Big Green). Well this is the real first rulebook, published in 1993. The rules were written for a few years (I saw some parts in a mag from 1991) still it was full of errors, fuck ups and inconsistencies some of them haunt even in current year and will haunt probably forever. Never read it btw.
>3rd pic
Második Törvénykönyv (Second Code of Law) published in 1995 so even this predates the ETK... This one... I don't think it is more than some shitty addendum, even the foreword states every rule in this book is optional.
>4th pic
The continent of Ynev. I've no idea how to pronounce it so I call it Inev. The world itself is called Satriale... no, Satralis it has two other continents noone cares about only some vague shit were written about them and are unplayable by default. I think the ETK not even mentions the planet or operates on the supposition that Ynev is the name of the world. In following posts you will meet names very typical fantasy worlds. Lots of them were borrowed from IRL or other fantasy resources so prepare some familiar sounding stuff.

Oh I forgot. It's just a typical medieval fantasy world, with elves, dwarves and orcs. Luckily I don't know anything about gay-ass halflings.

Thanks for sharing, buddy. As an amerifat it's always nice to have someone share the foreign /tg/ stuff that nobody feels like translating. In thanks I'm going to (try to) talking about the first Japanese TRPG to get a full and official English translation. The one that paved the way for all the rest.

I'm talking, of course, about Maid RPG.

Bernd 04/22/2018 (Sun) 06:32:01 [Preview] No.16143 del
Wait. The T in TRPG is stand for Tactical and not Tabletop right? The word tactical is usually related to military matters and this game is about.. maids I guess. This will be amusing. I'm looking forward to it.

I also could write some more about the psi and magic, maybe about the rules a bit more and something. But for now I want to concentrate on other matters dragged far too long.
One more thing. The new rulebook they were planning for the end of 2017 beginning of 2018 is still under construction. There might will be more news in May. They do have a certain amount of material for it, but I'm very skeptical.

In Japan the T stands for "Table-talk." Seriously. (Probably has something to do with the fact that most nips in the 80s were exposed to Ultima, Wizardry and then Dragon Quest before they ever saw a core rulebook.)

While it's at the back of the book I'm going to start with the design notes since it really gets to the heart of what Maid is and why it has value outside of being a meme game.

Maid was published in 2004 and published in English in 2008, so this was before weeaboo bullshit had been fully mainstreamed. Ewen Cluney (who is incidentally a rather cool dude) was infected with the idea to translate Maid in 2007, his friend "Diamond Sutra" organized the entire publishing effort short of the actual translation, and Ryo Kamiya (the designer of Maid) rubber-stamped the whole thing. There's of course a whole spiel about how Maid is fucking weird by Japan's standards, and an expression of hope that it would be the beginning of a cultural exchange between Japanese /tg/ and Western /tg/. (This sort of happened; outside of Tenra Bansho Zero, which was in the pipe at about the same time as Maid and translated by the same company, I can think of at least three Japanese RPGs that got English translations off the top of my head. One of them was even designed by Kamiya and translated by Cluney.)

Diamond Sutra bought a copy of Maid on a trip to an Akibahara hobby shop (this was before Akiba became one giant otaku wankfest, and so the qualification is necessary) as a joke, but a year later he got shanghaied into playing a game with Cluney as he was getting ready to demo his translated version at Gen Con next year. Immediately he was sold; just the right intersection of fun, irreverent, and rules-light enough to pick up in about five minutes. Apparently the whole project went from Cluney's rough draft to selling professionally-printed copies at Gen Con 2008 in less than a year. That's pretty impressive.

The commentary from Kamiya deserves to be reproduced verbatim. (The entire book is like this.)

Overall, reading the design notes reminds me of just how awesome tabletop gaming nerds can be when they get their shit together and work hard to share their weird ideas with the world, and makes me sad that so much of the industry's mindshare is held by corporate slaves and pretentious fucks.

I just learned that ePub is just HTML and CSS. I always thought it's a PDF

He said he wrote his stuff in markdown then convert it to HTML

Bernd 04/22/2018 (Sun) 09:43:53 [Preview] No.16149 del
>I don't even know there is page element in HTML

There is no page element in HTML actually, it is css thing, used for printing mostly.

Actually, epub is horrible standard for ebooks. They tried to make it universal thing for common books and for fixed-like content (books that require fixed page structure or complex layout), so they choose html+css. But html+css is very complex solution (and also non-consistent), so every reader is required to embed large html+css parser (that is hard to write) or even full webview component (that eats your memory and CPU like crazy).

And even with webview, author may make html so bad, so you couldn't properly style it for your device. Overriding css automatically is complex task, so you can easily get epub file that would look very bad on small screen even if your reader tries to fix it. I've seen some, my phone reader couldn't do much with this, they was readable but looked very bad.

Why they decided to add that complexity when there is PDF for fixed-size docs already? And for books-like content there is FB2 that is pretty good, it has own markup that easily becomes responsive at any screen size. Sadly that fb2 looks dead as standard and has weak support of poetry.

>Why they decided to add that complexity when there is PDF for fixed-size docs already
It has to be 'race to the bottom'. Or I'd use a better term if I knew one, but I mean the effect that every upcomer trying to push itself will insist on competing directly with the industry standard. It takes the adage 'no point in reinventing the wheel' to the extent of 'because nobody wants to own a sleigh'. I think it's a matter of group nervousness about feeling that you only have one shot so you have to minimize the risk of failing, and Prisoner's Dilemma starts working against your optimal end.

Then there's the need to be open source no matter what, so they can't create a standard like PDF that might need to save a copyrighted font or something into the file itself.

>Gee I didn't know HTML support is heavier than PDF

That is why browsers are very heavy today. Although it is mostly JS part, but HTML+CSS adds complexity.

PDF is slow moving standard that may be messy, but already established and working. HTML now just moving without real standard (it is living (tm) standard), when features adding every time without revisions.

HTML/CSS also very loose, it basically permits non-closed tags and doesn't forbid wrong markup. For example, it is wrong to put block element inside inline, but site wouldn't broke if you'll do this, because if parsers would be strict, most of web would stop working. There were proposition in early 2000s to implement really strict HTML - XHTML, when parser can throw error on wrong markup, but it didn't work because almost every site will be broken and no browser want to lose market share that much.

CSS is also pretty complex, especially on version 3 with all animations, transitions and other things. Of course you don't need this for book reader, but no one forbids author to put some shady hack in his book html. In reality, book reader need to embed high grade web engine or use small self-made parser, but be prepared to get inconsistent results. As far as I know, even serious devices now couldn't properly display every epub ebook.

And, for example, calibre converter generates horrible mess instead of html for epub.
