Er... actually, I've been tempted to make some ever since I saw that picture.
I mean, with enough magic, anything is possible, right?

Technically, yes. Though most medieval fantasy settings conveniently ignore that fact.

Thanks for the flavor pics. In that last pic, is that a witch on a broom (a.k.a. Utorian) up there?

Eberron has "technology through magic." It was what I cared for least in the setting. I'm reminded of a scene from the John Wayne classic "The Quiet Man,"

Mary Kate Danaher: Could you use a little water in your whiskey?
Michaleen Flynn: When I drink whiskey, I drink whiskey; and when I drink water, I drink water.

I don't see the resemblance.

You must be looking at the wrong pic. I'm talking about the gray pic, not the yellow one. That's clearly KiKi's Delivery Service up there!

I was talking about the movie scene quote where you compare fiction to the strength of alcoholic beverages.

As much as I admire Wayne's sentiment, the fact remains that he was talking about piss-awful bourbon and not proper single malt (which is the only beverage truly deserving of the label; whisky.)

And yes, I reckon it probably is a witch. I don't know where the second image went, but I reckon Tim did it to spite me. I'll find it and fix it later.

Whiskey you heathen fuck. Which indeed should have a small amount of room temperature water in, although often I don't do this.

I didn't move the second image, in fact I told you I couldn't see it.

Also, I'm kind of a fan of magic mixing with technology. As I'm sure John Wayne would be too.

What the fuck would you know, you tart? It's only got an e in it if it's Irish or American- and thus not real whisky at all. Single Malt Scotch is emphatically e-less, and real men drink it neat.

I always thought that if it weren't wine, vodka, or some weird mixer thing, it might as well be Irish.

! O.K., I follow you now. I wasn't actually trying to make that comparison. It'd be interesting to try, though. I was merely expressing my preference to keep my fantasy and sci-fi (and technology, generally) seperate.

EDIT: Note to self: stay away from discussions of politics, religion and, most especially, whiskey (or whisky, for that matter) on this board.
