Re: Earth Bond Chapter 18 Discussion (spoilers!)

No. If the dragons are caught stealing from a warship that sunk with sailors on board, they instantly face international condemnation from all nations with a military naval tradition. Pretty much everyone in the G8. THe people they'd like to trade with. And it's not really a case of if, but when th...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 18 Discussion (spoilers!)

What if they simply used their magic to remove all water from the ship? So no water for cooling, plumbing or drinking! Or simply beach the ships? whyy not hook the ships beneath each, cause alot of trouble. Can you spell Confirmation Bias? Generally speaking, a military force that is so focused on ...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 18 Discussion (spoilers!)

Oh please, we are discussing Water Dragons here and if I'm correct, they do not show up as 'dead space' under water, instead they 'mimic' the water they are in. Why? Why would they have ever developed that capacity? Why would they 'just happen to have' a spell/ability custom built to exactly counte...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Arizona_%28shipwreck%29 It's also what happens when you rip open a ship from stem to sturn, as the dragons have plainly stated they intend to do. No, not really! Slicing a narrow hole, say 15 - 20% greater than the capabilities of the bilge pumping facilities on an ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_grave This is an example of a war grave: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Arizona_%28shipwreck%29 It's also what happens when you rip open a ship from stem to sturn, as the dragons have plainly stated they intend to do. Which means it works well towards getting the d...

Re: The Dragon Language

It is a lot more complex than that. for instance 1+1+10 is also true if you are using base 2 Wow. That's the first time I've ever seen a wild deepity . A sentence that is true on the surface but also utterly false once you look below the surface. Now please - a question before we proceede further: ...

Re: The Dragon Language

The translation of lost languages relies on context and similarity to known languages. <snip> Given that the Draconic language is unrelated to any human tongue, plus has a totally alien viewpoint, it is not surprising that it has not yet been translated, even with computer help. This is why I menti...

Moderators don't have the power to create subforums. You need Administrators for that. Though yes it would be a good idea.

Re: The Dragon Language

Given the Chinese (supposedly) have access to a sky dragon library - how much have they managed to translate? The technical stuff on magical theory, and regular prose may also be almost impossible, but at least one book almost certainly contains some mathematical notations or graphs, which should be...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 17 - Discussion (Spoilers)

Actually several countries around the world lay claim to portions of the continental shelf and the seas above them . I think you are confusing the concepts of Territorial Waters and Exclusive Economic Zone . If the dragons simply want an EEC, fine. But they sem to want to control acces to the ocean...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 17 - Discussion (Spoilers)

No, all you have to do to be a legal military combatant is organize and refrain from acts against the laws of war. Let us not confuse this with the UN Law Of the Sea treaty which has more to do with international governing of the sea. BUT... It might technically be considdered an 'act of war' and a...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 16 - Discussion (Spoilers)

To dragons humans are no more then pets. Is this right? No, obviously not, but that does not make kell a morally bankrupt monster. Actually, yes. It does. Extended failure to see people as people is another one of those 'dictionary entries under monster' things. don't apply human morals to dragons ...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 16 - Discussion (Spoilers)

Why did Kel kill the hackers? To safeguard the Department's mission (to potect Dragon society). I kind of read into this that they tried to dissuade them first. I don't remember being told much about how he felt about this action. so maybe you did some reading in of your own. Simple question: If th...

Re: Earth Bond Chapter 16 - Discussion (Spoilers)

WOnt the nations notice if they cant see the dragons on the vulcano with their spy sats? Technically other nations should have noticed a lot of things. :roll: No doubt the EDs put in an rule-exception to slow down discovery of their sabotage for as long as possible. I'm sure Fel will tell us all ab...
