The elf in your avatar looks a hell of a lot like Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica.


Planescape: Torment

I absolutely adored that game. I played it through 3 or 4 times. I haven't played in years. I don't know if I even still have the disc. Sad sad.


Generally, I like my Black Isle-style games single player, but I did do the WoW thing in a semi-hardcore manner for a year and a half. That was good times, but I got really burned out and have barely looked at it in many a moon.

There's really only one game that I can play over and over and not get sick of: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

I just finished it for something like the 12th time. I even got my 5 year old begging me to let him do the last boss fight over and over.


I almost always played magic-users table-top and fighters on the computer. My Nameless One is nearly always a thief.

It's indeed Starbuck! I needed a portrait for my PnP elf paladin and am too lacking in artistic skills to draw one, so I used base images of Katee Sackhoff and Elrond's armour to put together something that looked relatively appropriate for the character:



My four-year-old demands his turn too when I'm playing games. He prefers WWII flight sims (obviously too many movies), but he is prepared to compromise by helping me drop Horrid Wiltings on Jon Irenicus in BGII. Of course, he is not very expert, so there are lots of reloads, hehe. :)

That's nice work on the elfification of Starbuck.


I've played Castlevania: SOTN enough to know the cheap ways to grind xp and the mobs that drop exactly the right eq so as to make my character super-buff so that I can safely turn my boy loose on Dracula without having to deal with reloads.

I'm caught up too. There's bound to be an explanation. Was that the last episode of Season 3? See, it's a cliffhanger...it's just not real. Right?

I'm still caught up in shock over it. She can't just disappear off the show. No, no, NO! Perhaps we'll see Cylon!Kara being resurrected? Or perhaps this is her Mines of Moria and we'll see her come back as Starbuck the White. :)

I miss her already. *sniffle*

It was a powerful and heart-wrenching episode, and I agree with your assessment - she'll be back, we just don't know when or how. It broke my heart to see Adama's reaction, especially while he was still in CIC. Well played. I've always enjoyed the the dynamic between those two. There was only one part in that episode where I knew the line. Adama asked Starbuck, "What do you hear?"

I replied aloud to the television, "Nothing but the rain."

It was foreboding.

It's not the last episode.

I was trying not to spoil it for you.

She is not a Cylon I am positive. She is still alive but captured by the psycho Cylon.

galinda822 has some fascinating thoughts on the whole thing...things I would never have dreamed of.
