If Korea is the kind of place where cops would potentially beat-down a torch rally at NCsoft, I don't think a "Witch" casting curses in public would fare much better.

Though, if they have such a shaman, he might be similar to a Barakumin in Japan, and thus untouchable. I mean, if you see an old man who is believed to be able to curse people, would you want to mess with him?

Heh, true. I guess NCsoft's only recourse then would be to hire another shaman. And wouldn't that be an epic headline?

Why is this reminding me of the scene in Conan the Destroyer where the two wizards are fighting to open and close a door?  :)

Would you want to mess with this?

Wait until I find out from Ken if it is possible, and how much.

The ancient and noble art of unicorning corporations.

As a natural born greenskin I like where this is going.

Basically if this can be done, it's merely bringing the wrath of the base to the source in a language that they cannot pretend they do not understand.

Y'know what?  This is glorious.  There is nothing about this whole concept that is not righteous.

It's the culture-conscious mystical equivalent of a kick in the nuts.

I'm the last person anyone would think to be preachy about this sort of thing but if you're serious you really need to think about the "hidden cost" of curses. As much as you and many others hate NCsoft, its not worth the risk.

Just give it time, it might not be in the manner you want but they will get what they deserve eventually.

OK, I have to ask?  Other than a magic horse with a horn on it's forehead, WTF if a unicorn?

It's a forum text autocorrect for the term that refers to a mythical monster that lives under a bridge and eats goats.
If you see me posting here, you need to tell me to stop it and get back to writing.

Um...  Not sure I even still follow that, but is it a synonym for..  Um..  The things that regen like mad in D&D?  Or, um....  What ya set on fire or douse with acid?

I wish there was a way to look up just how much total time has been spent typing out explanations to all the instances of the "What's a unicorn" question.

Hope you'te not getting on me about that.  If you change your code thrice daily, you can't whine about some out of date codes..  Back when I was in mostly daily contact, I was totally up to date with the latest lingo.  Not so much now...
