Donald Tusk, flippers extended, once again warns the United Kingdom that if they leave the EU they will lose access to not just the Thrawn Trilogy but also Jedi Academy, the entire Yuzhaan Vong saga, and even Han Solo at Star's End.

"It would be, in fact, an economic death sentence in twelve systems."

The Royal Palace at Thneed could not be reached for comment, although we understand the Onceler has been seen conferring with both Bosses Nass and Hogg.

if there's one thing I'm proud of it's that I've concocted a world with enough complexity that interesting choices emerge from circumstance. I didn't know the party was going to go back to whitebridge, but i knew what was going to happen in their absence, so when they *did* go back and found it occupied by hordes of mutated goblins it presented a moral dilemma that will take multiple sessions to resolve. It's the kind of payoff you hope for when worldbuilding.

@philonerd I didn't know about this! I just have a huge mute list instead :blobfacepalm:

Thank you very much! I'm off to go mute humblr too :blobthumbsup:

Btw, its not in the breadcrumb menu (the three dots) in the client.

@angristan might be able to lower the blocking levels on the CF dashboard.

@chebra @angristan Cloudflare is pretty bad for blocking IP address blocks like that.

If you're outside the US/EU, you're all too often a 2nd class citizen.

to quote the original thread:
"Non-magic users: collect crystals, call their pet a familiar, draw pentagrams

Magic users:the most magical things I keep in my house are rocks, and I keep a hammer next to them in case they act up."

@Shamar Their claimed reaaoning is to standardise .ORG so it's more familiar to the ggTLDs, but I think they're missing the point here; .ORG has always seen favourable conditions because it's the de facto tld for non-for-profits and charities. It _should_ have special considerations, to protect these groups.
