Are you waiting for me to make something before you add to it?

Naw. Just checking the "recent changes" page for stuff I'm interested in. Also, when you post on discussion pages, link four tilde signs (~) together after your post, so people can tell who's doing the writing. --SpectralTime (talk) 17:09, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

So, basically like this? TheWiseDane (talk) 11:32, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Oh, thats just magical. Look how much of a noob I am! Anyway, I just thought it was funny that someone added to everything I made, and am basically happy about it, so no biggie. TheWiseDane (talk) 11:32, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

I am now considering you my stalker. TheWiseDane (talk) 06:20, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Oh? Is there a way to get a trigger warning permanently added to the article? I'd be satisfied with a small one down the bottom, honestly. Anything is fine so long as this executive guy doesn't revert it and then threaten rape and dox me again.

For now, tempers are running high. Just calm down, and stop doing this. We'll see what can be done. The answer might be nothing. There is a great deal of hostility towards the perceived excesses of political correctness" here. The best answer might be to just edit the intro to include mention of rape, rather than outright calling it "trigger warning." Would that address your concerns? --SpectralTime (talk) 02:35, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes it would, thank you. I'll add something to the intro now, and try and keep it relatively bland.

Did it for you. --SpectralTime (talk) 02:37, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
I would insist on putting my foot down right here. I don't want to see this wiki turned over to bullshit political correctness. If you gotta do these edits, keep them clean, and go no further than adding an NSFW Tag with Template:NSFW Evilexecutive (talk) 02:38, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
That's why I asked, when I made the edit, if it addressed both your concerns, namely, his desire not to have to learn the hard way that he was opening a can of Rape-a-Cola when the label only had monstergirls, and your desire not to have the wiki turn into a dance of everyone skittering over eggshells. Is it acceptable? --SpectralTime (talk) 02:40, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
Upsurd Deja'vu aside(Coulda swore I've seen "opening a can of Rape-a-cola" before, or possibly that entire paragraph you posted), I'm satisfied with this outcome. Evilexecutive (talk) 02:41, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
Nuts. I thought that was an original, and felt rather clever and witty for having fashioned it. Now I know I'm probably unconsciously knicking it from somewhere... --SpectralTime (talk) 02:43, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

The SJW page[edit]

Thank you for fixing this and sorry for using strike-through, but that guy was totally wrong. - Ben (talk) 13:25, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Request for Help[edit]

Sure, I'd be happy to offer you what assistance I can. Now, Dark Sun 2e isn't actually something I've studied all that extensively, although I do have it in my collection. Still, after a little poking around on the internet, I found out that Dray first appeared in the Dark Sun Monstrous Compendium Appendix 2; they also appeared in City By The Silt Sea, and were planned to appear in Dregoth Ascending, although TSR going under ended that. Apparently, has pieced together that third book and is hosting it on their site, but I haven't checked it out.

You can read their Monstrous Compendium writeup online here:

For the books proper, just in case... check out this archive here; it's absolutely loaded with every D&D book, as far as I can tell. Just checking it out, I can confirm that it's got City by the Silt Sea and the DS MCA 2 (by the title of "Monstrous Compendium Appendix II B"), both under the Advanced D&D (Unsorted) folder:

Historical Section[edit]

Hi, just cleared up a portion of this section, didn't want to add any new information really but just cleaned up what was there in the first instance. Please let me know if this isn't warranted however. Thanks.

4e Tone Adjustment[edit]

So, did you catch my notice about going ahead with tweak the "tone" of articles, in particular the ancient mess that is the Aasimar?--QuietBrowser (talk) 22:10, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I did not. I'll look around though. And I'm glad you are trying. --SpectralTime (talk) 14:59, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Allow me to quote myself from my own page, just so it's easier to find. Also, putting something on your user page would make it a lot easier to talk to you.--QuietBrowser (talk) 03:19, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
Go right ahead and tweak it. So long as you acknowledge that there were legitimate complaints about the classic Alignment 9-grid, and that what 4e was trying to do was to give alignment an easy-to-understand, solid definition that wouldn't leave players arguing if the definition of Lawful means either having an internal code of behavior or following all external codes (and don't bullshit me, I SAW that exact argument go on for at least half a dozen pages on Paizo's forums), I really don't care. As for the aasimar... wow, that's freaking ancient, I haven't touched that page in months. I never really meant for it to come off as venomous, but aasimar were kind of the forgotten sibling in comparison. Yeah, I know that genasi didn't even get a variable features table, but, still, tieflings were always the big hitters. The "problem with aasimar" sidebar from Worlds & Monsters is reprinted word for word on the Deva page, so... yeah, go right ahead and rewrite it, but I'd like if you could try and point out that the perceived "weakness" of aasimar as a race whose identity boiled down to "I'm super-duper goody-good!" was why the devas were invented. Heck, aasimar did actually sneak back into the game, via the Deva Heritage bloodline feat in Dragon Magazine #374's "Ecology of the Deva", which actually made aasimars more mechanically akin to their 2e fluff - now you had any base race, and a racial daily power that surrounded you in a protective aura of holy light.--QuietBrowser (talk) 07:11, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Aasimar Adjustment[edit]

I tried to clean up the Aasimar page like you asked. Take a look and see if it looks better now.--QuietBrowser (talk) 21:23, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

It removes most of the complaining about them being grid-filling, and, section about them being boring aside, I'm happy enough that I didn't feel the need to comment. Think I'll correct that personally, mind. --SpectralTime (talk) 21:49, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
