    Yes, next to the grillroom with near unlimited meat

    And at the end of the lane is the Temple of Newton, currently being designed, soon to be built.

    Direct him to the Sacred Order of the Pink Flamingo's warm dessert trolley and ice cream bar.

    Great idea, nobody would expect it... Onwards!

    You know something? When I came to these forums, I did expect to find some factions, but I didn't expect the bloody physics inquisition!

    you see, nobody expects us... so from this point, expect the unexpected, so you'll never be surprised....

    But what if the unexpected never happens!

    That is something for the enemy to wander about. Suprise is an important part in our tactics!

    I also just realized I haven't said any vows yet.


    Newton is love, Newton is life.


    Also death to the gravity-defying heretic drawbridges.

    I've been reluctant to post, as I've never fully considered myself proper in the ways of physics - my formal instruction on mathematics was poor. I do have impeccable spatial comprehension, which has led to some interesting amateur science. My experience in medieval recreation, including actual siege engine construction (none of that high school 3ft. tall junk, if I couldn't fling a life-sized foam cow at another person, it wasn't going to be built... and this was in the 90s!) hardly suffered because of a lack of training in calculus and trigonometry. (yes, I know, heresy)

    Still, Newton is love, Newton is life.

    Knowledge can be gained. Only those who choose ignorance are blasphemous.

    Quite true.
    [Completely left field here] When I was held back in replicating a damaged gear in a motorized object (stripped a gear in my favorite hedge trimmer which is no longer made... so I was going to 3D print it) by my lack of trigonometry training, I sought out answers in understanding. I may not have a firm grasp on the field as a whole, or how to accomplish anything else with what I learned, but I do now know how to achieve what I sought to achieve.
    Learning through real-world application. Not recommended, but it works.

    Newton is a truly unforgiving teacher. You do it right, follow the rules, or you ain't doing it any longer.

    You get to use and take care of some of the many torture devices we have. Including but not limited by: the armchair of uncomfortable sitting, the extremely foggy sauna of dampness and the too soft bed of insomnia.

    This position is one of honor, of devotion.

    The too soft bed of insomnia sounds diabolic.

    thats because nobody expects it to be that soft.

    So, has anyone made any progress of the fire raining heretic purger of justice yet? These weapons shall be our primary and most iconic siege weapon against heretics! These machines will battle the ever raging terrors that the Newton defying decease brings upon these lands, lands which we will clean with the heat that will be brought upon them by the mighty fires of Isaac Newton himself! A fire that will lick their limbs so they may never commit those illicit actions against the order and justice of Newtons laws!

    I made a drawbridge that can't draw. Or bridge.


    I made a useless thing.

    I'm actually planning on that being one of my first projects once I get ME or once fire is released at any rate.

    I'm thinking a catapult bowl covered with iron on the inside so it doesn't ignite itself. Then take some small stone shot, soak the whole thing in pitch or tar, light it up with a torch and fire. Hurling dozens, if I can make it that way, of small flaming projectiles raining hot, burning death down on my enemies.

    On the drawbridge. I'm also considering one that doesn't raise, it drops. This way it can make the rift in the earth it is over impossible to get across much faster. My main concern at this point is sufficient structural integrity to get carts and the like across.
