    Return of [CAMP]?

    Molinism vs. Calvinism: What's the Difference?

    A few days ago, I was whispered a question about the difference between Molinism and Calvinism. Since I was in the middle of Arah path 1 explorable and unable to really reply in chat, I shall do so here. Hopefully this format will be easier being able to see all the text instead of bits and...

    Calvinism & Arminianism

    Earlier tonight, a few folks were asking about the distinctions of these two Christian theological positions. So, here's a comparative difference... God's Sovereignty Calvinism - God's sovereignty is unconditional, unlimited, and absolute. All things are predetermined by the good pleasure of...

    What is considered "bad language"?

    Bad Language... Words such as obscenity, pornography, vulgarity, and profanity each mean something completely different yet they can help us understand the various issues that deserve our scrutiny. The word obscene can be thought of as meaning “out of the scene” or “offstage.” In Greek drama...

    Bots - Why I Stopped Reporting

    In GW1, bots were an issue, grabbing loot and crushing the economy. In GW2, they have been beneficial. Don't get me wrong... I don't like powerleveling or stealing loot or crushing the game economy. Those are all bad features of bots that mess up the game. But I have found one very good...

    As many of you probably already know, the top WvW servers have a dedicated Teamspeak server for their Guild Wars 2 server (multi-guilds on one channel). Today, it was advertised that Sanctum of Rall has one, too. I have no idea who runs it, wha to talk to about it, or how good it is. But...

    Taran will be absent intermittently for a while

    Today during the stress test my computer crashed. It won't even come back on in safe mode. I do not believe the stress test caused it. It was acting up for several days prior to this event. But I guess the stress test was the catalyst for what was already happening. So if you don't see...

    First Character - What Kind of Build Are You Planning on Using?

    So we're coming down the launch of Guild Wars 2. We've seen some changes to the professions from each beta and even the last stress test. And that means we're fast approaching 'decision time.' One of the great joys about Guild Wars 2 is the varied number of weapons (and their respective...

    Unconfirmed New Pet Ability

    From some of the discussions I have encountered, it was reported, but unconfirmed that pets will regenerate health outside of combat (which has been happening for several beta tests now) and fully res within 20 seconds. My pets were much healthier during this test, so I didn't get a chance...
