Someone now needs to prove string theory so I can go visit Sigil.

. In fact, an excited oxygen atom doesn't have to wait very long (usually microseconds) before another atom or molecule bumps it.

Ah, I was young and attractive, once.

Adding effects or "enhancing the video" always makes me not appreciate it as much. Kind of like seeing a lion at the zoo.

I remember reading some of the Spelljammer literature a while ago (but long after it had been discontinued), and I got the sense that it could have worked well if they had treated it as an expansion for high- or epic-level campaigns. For example, maybe the heroes find out that the big bad has a base on the moon, and in order to stop him for good they need to find out how to follow him there. It could be especially interesting if the moon's low gravity somehow plays into the final battle (although that would be easier to pull off using 3e or 3.5e rules than 2e rules).

Yay for Star Control II.

Never had so much fun reading the dialogue in a video game before. I don't know who wrote that game, but it was seriously good stuff.

The moon doesn't have enough mass to harm the sun. We'll have to use Jupiter.

But don't get careless, because if we screw it up, we might end up with some kind of super-sun that will kill us all even faster.

Ring out, ye crystal spheres,
Once bless our human ears,
If ye have power to touch our senses so;
And let your silver chime
Move in melodious time,
And let the base of heav'n's deep organ blow;
And with your ninefold harmony
Make up full consort to th' angelic symphony.
