Yeah, nothing against Arnold for it.
As for the rest, being a hitler youth constitutes being a Nazi. As I said, I’ve got family in germany and from germany a few of whom were Hitler youths. Thay made if very clear that being a Hitler youth entailed membership in the National socialist party. Whether he beleived it or not (and I don’t think he actually beleived it) he was a Nazi. A member of the National Socialist party, the basic definition of Nazi.
Again, i do not think he thought of himself as a Nazi, nor do I believe he sympathized with the party’s views, but that does not change the fact that he was a member. Nazi is a loaded word. You think of it as holocaust, genocide, racist, torture, evil. What it actually means is simply a member of the National socialist party in Germany from 1933-1945. Membership was required for hitler youth, ss and gestapo as well as anyone in the government structure at any level and their families.September 2, 2005 at 8:36 am #565414Sensei

Back to the tank.
Give it a lot of hitpoints but more importantly armour or damage reduction so a group of cultist with shotguns wont just kill it.
Main gun should be in the range between a field gun and dynamite.
(what are they hunting? Most CoC beasties would not take long to destroy a tank)September 2, 2005 at 9:34 am #565415
Hah, well, in our last adventure we were fighing deep ones. The party actually managed to capture one, which is pretty cool. It was not in the factory with the other ten when they dinymited it. Heh. Anyways, thanks. The monsters they are fighing are not very powerful yet. Just large numbers of cultists.September 2, 2005 at 1:56 pm #565416
mchvlichldprdgy, I don’t believe for a second when you said it you meant it in that logical fashion. We’ll agree to disagree on this. The facts are this, you said (quote) “That would be Scary. We already have a Nazi for Pope, and you want the Son of a Nazi?.” Which says simply he IS a Nazi. Now. So he is currently a member of the National Socialist Party. Riiiight. It wasn’t a clever quip.
And please don’t correct me anymore. I know all of the facts you’re telling me, and your assumation that I or any of the board members would not know these things just because you think of yourself as an educated person does not change the fact that the majority of the people here are very intelligent folks and do not enjoy being corrected in such an immature fashion. I am very very VERY sorry to have to be rude about this, but I don’t know what else to say. It’s just getting incredibly annoying and frankly, I’m going to abandon even trying to have a conversation.
Don’t try even for a second to tell me what you THINK I know or don’t know. The fact that most of the people you associate with on a daily basis do not have a historical perspective does not mean that -I- do not. You have no idea the extent of my education. I simply disagree with the way in which you used it – which I do not believe was the logical way in which you just explained it. Throwing out verbal hand grenades like that is bound to get a response. Again, we will just have to disagree.
This is not a personal shot at you. And I’m going to just stop talking because I once liked this board to be a positive place. I, well, frankly, I just give up.October 8, 2005 at 2:59 am #565417Shug

Sorry to contribute to the thread ‘jacking, but I had to comment:
I was just today reading for the first time about “Godwin’s Law” (Wiki) – and but 3 hours later I stumble across it in action.
Guess it exists for a reason. ^_^
On a sidenote, I stumbed across the term while reading an interesting ruthless months-long argument on Kuro5hin about whether or not Ender’s Game was Hitler/genocide-apologia.October 8, 2005 at 3:44 am #565418EegahInc

Thanks for the link, Shug. That’s the first I’ve heard of Godwin’s Law, but it makes sense. I’m not sure it’s limited to the internet, though. I’ve seen the comparison shut down many a live discussion.October 8, 2005 at 5:43 am #565419
Hehehehehe, Godwins Law is fun.
Anyway, people are still too emotional about the term Nazi. I hope it’ll be available for actual historical comparison in a serious way in the next twenty years. Until then, It’ll just be loaded word that everyone gets frazzled over. Oh well. Lots of people were Nazis, and many of them are/were good people.
And Enders Game, WTF!?! Thats off the wall.October 8, 2005 at 3:10 pm #565420N-kun

Hmm, ever consider it should be impossible for them to get a tank if they are not military? Also do they have the required training to operate a tank, and if not where are they going to get it from?October 8, 2005 at 4:11 pm #565421N-kun wrote:Also do they have the required training to operate a tank, and if not where are they going to get it from?
Dice rolls. 😛October 8, 2005 at 5:20 pm #565422
Hah, yep, you know whats fun? Forcing the party member who is flying the plane to make rolls to decide wether or not he doesn’t crash. While the rest of the PC’s are threatening to kill him in real life if he rolls bad.
First i made him roll to take off, he got a 2, hahaha. So he had to re-roll and got a 18, then in the air he rolled a 5 and the plane went into a nose dive, then he rolled a natural 20 so he mannaged to pull out of it, and got a 17 on the land.
It was so great, the other players were about ready to jump him.October 8, 2005 at 5:57 pm #565423
How good a set of rolls woudl you need to get, to have a guy on foot jump a moving tank, pop the cover, toss a grenade inside and roll away to safety? 😛October 8, 2005 at 6:10 pm #565424
Haha, the more rolls I make him take the better the chance he will get the crap beaten out of him by the rest of the party ^^October 8, 2005 at 9:58 pm #565425Shathis wrote:How good a set of rolls woudl you need to get, to have a guy on foot jump a moving tank, pop the cover, toss a grenade inside and roll away to safety? 😛
He’d have to roll a natural 21.October 8, 2005 at 10:19 pm #565426mchvlichldprdgy wrote:Shathis wrote:How good a set of rolls woudl you need to get, to have a guy on foot jump a moving tank, pop the cover, toss a grenade inside and roll away to safety? 😛

I love it! I will have to use that at the next CoC session ^^October 9, 2005 at 1:50 am #565427
Natural 1 – he rolls the grenade under the treads of the tank, and in a fit of uselessness, tumbles to the location of the grenade himself!
