Did you mean to say "70s-90s Hip Hop" twice? Other than that and the questions Robert asked, this looks great

Re: Running Zoom Tournaments

Re: start time, I find it very unfair that the community expects West Coast players to get up super early, just so East Coast players don't have to stick around in the evening. The fact that West Coast players have put up with this over and over again in the past does not make it okay. As someone w...

I had proceeded to contribute very little in the first half, and we were up something like 90-30. In th...

[10] After the Æsir kill Thjazi and recover the apples, Odin attempts to appease Skadi by turning Thjazi’s eyes into one of these things. To resolve a paradox, Zeus turns Laelaps and the Teumessian fox into two of these objects. Sorry if I'm being nit-picky, and maybe this wasn't an issue in the ac...

Could I see the exact wording on the bonus on varna? I'm sure it was just me messing up, but I just want to make sure it was just me being silly by saying jati instead
