    Versus Match Sauron (Second Age, One Ring in hand) vs Arthas the Lich King (World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King)

    Seriously. Frostmourne is a cool weapon but Grond leaves craters wherever it strikes.

    Star Wars Star Wars Discussion Thread - LET THE PAST D-! Oh, wait, nevermind

    Not really. A lot of sci-fi settings do really interesting space battles based off realistic scale. Warships in Legends of the Galactic Heroes exchanging fire is a work of art to behold.

    The Idiocy of the Average

    The vast majority I'd say. Trouble is they are much too busy living their lives and keeping roofs over their heads to concern themselves with the intricacies of statecraft. Still, it does prove wisdom and intelligence aren't necessarily linked. For example, I think a Massai tribesman watching...

    Versus Match Sauron (Second Age, One Ring in hand) vs Arthas the Lich King (World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King)

    Come to think of Sauron shenanigans in Warcraft, he might well take advantage of the whole Scourge issue by presenting himself as Annatar, giver of gifts, and offer to help the heroes of Azeroth by giving them some very powerful magical artifacts... Namely rings.

    Versus Match Sauron (Second Age, One Ring in hand) vs Arthas the Lich King (World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King)

    A part of me does ponder the idea of whether or not this is a low key rerun of Fingolfin and Morgoth: the former is more versatile and faster, whilst the latter is quite a bit bigger and likely a good deal stronger.

    Versus Match Sauron (Second Age, One Ring in hand) vs Arthas the Lich King (World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King)

    Two of fantasy's most prominent Dark Lords and Necromancers, at the peak of their powers, throw down on an open icy waste. 1 v 1. In my opinion, it can go either way. The magic and feats of Tolkien are vague, but some interpretations would put them as very potent indeed. Meanwhile WoW's...

    Book Club Thread 1: Jake's Magical Market, Spoilers Open

    I have my suggestion. Godborn (Gods of Bronze Book 1) A demigod with inhuman strength meets an evil he cannot overcome. On the cusp of manhood, Herkuhlos finds his homeland ravaged by unspeakable evil. A hundred clans have been destroyed and thousands lie dead on the endless grasslands. Now...

    Book Club Thread 1: Jake's Magical Market, Spoilers Open

    I...uh...started to get a bit tired of it at about the 25% mark and what I'm seeing here is not very encouraging. That aside, the page count was daunting from the very start. The sodding thing is about the same length as the first Wheel of Time book! So, for the purposes of the thread, I'm...

    Crossover The Flagship(s) of the Migrant Fleet in a InterGalactic Apocalypse

    If it's Disney than yes, no contest. Which is why Disney is big gay and should be ignored.

    Crossover The Flagship(s) of the Migrant Fleet in a InterGalactic Apocalypse

    Odyssey could serve as an Auxiliary too, although I think "scout on steroids" suits its fleet role. This is an actual battlecruiser that can engage and run down the vast majority of vessels in sci-fi.

    Star Wars Star Wars Discussion Thread - LET THE PAST D-! Oh, wait, nevermind

    I always like to see that as "25000 capital ships", which allows innumerably more light vessels. The Imperial Navy could have well over a million warships at its disposal. Edit: Come to think of it, there's no reason the number couldn't be even higher. Given the industrial might of the Empire...

    Crossover The Flagship(s) of the Migrant Fleet in a InterGalactic Apocalypse

    It would be an excellent Auxiliary ship, but in terms of size, armour and raw firepower, it just isn't a Star Destroyer. In battle that is where you'd want your flag to be.

    Crossover The Flagship(s) of the Migrant Fleet in a InterGalactic Apocalypse

    If we're going off legends, then the ISD Right to Rule is undoubtedly the flagship should these fleets ever coalesce. Pellaeon is a full blown Admiral anyway so he does outrank quite a few of the others and is a proven, experienced, leader. Also his migrant fleet is made up of Imperial ships (or...
