Re: Vampire: The Masquarade also Bloodlines Two (2) 2020 edition

Wut, I'm talking about games with a contemporary setting, like this one. Of course sci fi or WW2 games wouldn't have you killing brown people, don't be dense. Wasn't the first modern warfare before 2010, with much of the plot being faux Iraq invasion? What about soldier of fortune, which was even ea...

She's free.

Re: 2k19 /pol/ - European Spring edition

Actual answer: It isn't proven, but it's almost common knowledge that human traffickers make contact with NGO ships to organize easier transfer of migrants. They tow a dinghy full of people a few miles off the Libyan coast until they spot the ship, then they cut the line and let them sit there for ...

Also the article isn't entirely correct, yes it was a police launch but it was the customs police, which is a branch of the military, thus making it a warship by definition. So the captain is being charged with "attempted sinking of a warship" which is a much more serious crime. Combined w...
