    Not fair. Just not fair. I've been married longer than you've been alive, I guess.

    But over in Pittsburgh, we took home the win. So Pennsylvania still got represented well. :p

    Much simpler times, @Sinrebirth.

    I demand you use your mod powers to bring them back! ....Without leaving the good stuff that has happened since. The bad, eh, sayonara. :p

    The more I think about it; I’d hate to be 15 again.

    Also, @greyjedi125, @Rayner_Tedros.

    True. There are certain annoyances of the time as well...

    That aside, @Sinrebirth, you’re a big fan of the .hack series, correct? I only ever watched ‘Sign’.

    What order should I watch to get the full story? Also heard some of them weren‘t canon, which are those?

    If you don’t mind the small barrage of questions. :p

    Ooooh. Double posting because hype.

    .Hack//Sign
    .Hack//Legends of the Twilight
    .Hack//GU
    .Hack//GU trilogy
    .Hack//Quantum

    What is important to note is that the anime dovetails with games too, and mangas and novels.

    Between Sign episodes 27 and 28, a set of four PS2 games takes place. It’s narratively handled in 28, but the PS2 games were only adapted into novels.

    Thankfully .Hack//Legend of the Twilight which spends a fair amount time detailing the legendary Dot Hackers from the games, but Legend is a a much more colourful and episodic formula, compared to Sign and GU, which are very adult and layered. But I like to have lighter and heavier fare so it’s no harm.

    Trilogy thankfully adapts the games key beats for .Hack//GU, so that’s fine. The GU games did have a recent (and cheap) update that can be downloaded from the PS store, mind you. But the Trilogy film is good fun.

    Almost all the novels and manga’s are adaptions, AU’s or supremely side content so can be bypassed. After Quantum is a new story arc which hasn’t made its way to English yet, .Hack//Link, but that didn’t get an anime (yet).

    TL:DR - Sign, Legend of the Twilight, GU, Trilogy, Quantum.

    Of course SAO took the .Hack// idea and ran with it, but SAO has some incredibly weird moments which makes it hard to enjoy at times (for me).

    I'm actually a big fan of SAO myself, good and bad all. :p

    But I heavily enjoyed .hack//Sign way back in the day, long before SAO, and always somehow just kept forgetting to get to the other .hack shows. It's time to correct that!


    ....Also. I have....

    Reasons. [face_mischief]

    Is it a bad thing that I use my own preset base scores for different races for my D&D characters instead of what’s written in the rule books?

    For example, a half-elf has a base score of 16 and gnomes have 14.
