  2. My second interference: Those who draw the Sign of the Worm with intent to invoke the Restful Peace, must at the same time surrender their Essence to Arepo to be recast as a new soul. Otherwise those choosing this path would carry a fragment of Creation itself with them into oblivion, and the world would be diminished. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary suspects the God of Decay and Unmaking of plotting to slowly unmake the created world.
  3. I might not. I'll have to give it some thought. Meanwhile, I need a mythical beast. What could be more appropriate than: The Phoenix! Lucius Alexander The palindromedary suggests "The Palindromedary" but it's biased
  4. Her name was Yohanna. She was a child of a pragmatic sort of family and had not been raised with the Myths of the Deathless. Nonetheless, she Dreamed. And she was a quiet girl who watched and listened much. One day as she watched a chrysalis that earlier in the cycle she had watched being woven, and listened to the water and the wind, she heard a Voice. "I am here." She shook her head and changed her gaze to look at a great tree, and again the Voice came. "I am here." A little afraid that it may be some trick, she rose and headed to a small bridge across the stream. And the Voice was in the water. "I am here too. I am with you, My child. I am always with you." She stopped on the bridge and looked into the water. "How can that be? Are you in the cocoon, in the tree, and in the water as well?" "I am in all things. It can be so, for all things were made from Me in the Beginning. " "Who are you?" asked the girl, and the Goddess replied with her Secret Name and bid her keep it a close secret, and taught her much she was free to share, how all things arise and pass away because there was no other way the Enduring World could have been created, that all things of the mortal world are part of one Being, but not of that Being alone, for She was Herself part of the Council of the Deathless Ones. And she learned how to teach others to listen, to really LISTEN and hear the Voices of the Gods, which are in all things. sometimes fainter and sometimes all but shouting. There was a Voice in the chrysalis singing of death and rebirth, a Voice in the bridge speaking of how the bridge and the path and the Royal Road and all ways trod by mortals were all connected in an infinite pattern of travel over the world. a Voice in the Wormlight, a Voice Divine in even the lowest of worms....and many other Voices we will speak of in time. And because you are to be Initiated, I may tell you of the Secret Name of She we usually call Arepo. It is ____ - that almost silent intake of air, as of an infant's first breathing in before the birth cry, or a dying person's last breath taken before the death rattle. Yohanna was perhaps not the first, but is among the first we know of, who are called Mystics. And among other gifts, we thank Arepo for this, the Gift of Mysticism: The ability of mortals to directly apprehend Divine Reality, to sense the Immanent Presence of the Gods in the world. My Option: Mysticism. O God! I cried, no dark disguise Can e'er hereafter hide from me Thy radiant Identity. Thou can'st not move across the grass But my quick eyes shall see Thee pass Nor speak, however silently But my hushed voice will answer Thee. God, I can push the grass apart And lay my finger on Thy heart! Edna St Vincent Millay Lucius Alexander Palindromedary Enterprises

    Here's one I was planning to use at a con. Describe each person's day at some random point up in their lives. Have each player roll 3d6 as a luck/unluck roll (6s are a good situation and 1s are a bad situation). Add in any solely luck or unluck dice. Then in the middle of some action, they get summoned to the campaign world. Per summoning rules, they arrive stunned at a random segment in the turn. A good witch used a "summon heroes spell" to save some people from some evil agency (say Demon or Viper) and while they players are stunned, the agents are dragging away the witch (who went unconscious not having enough end for the summoning spell and taking NND damage). The first thing the players have to do is save the innocents from the agents and then save the witch to get back home(or warn her not to use the spell anymore).
  6. No, Bond will continue to be Daniel Craig. Lashana Lynch will be playing a different spy who is given the 007 designation after Bond chooses to retire. I've yet to come across anyone who thinks that Bond will stay retired or that Lynch's character will keep the 007 position. Indeed, pretty much everyone thinks she will be shot.

    Run with the bank robbery / kidnapping. Just dress it up a bit: They aren't looking for guns blazing, cash in the bag type stuff. They are specifically after the contents of two unrelated safety deposit boxes. One contains bearer bonds, the other a rough pile of documents... See where your se se of adventure takes you from there.
  8. Falcon did become Cap for a while in the comics, although he's just a guy, so the role seems tougher for him than for Steve Rogers. Personally I'd much rather see a WW2 era Cap TV series.
  9. Hmmm.....a new Bond is coming out and is a girl and now you guys are referring to a Jane Foster Thor. (Now I don’t read allot of comics so JFT could been a comic thing) The timing though seems like....bandwagon. Btw I have no problem with the Falcon becoming a new Capt. America.

    I don’t have Champions Battlegrounds so I’m not sure about those villains to recommend. However how about either the Slug or Anubis? The Slug be stealing parts to make more humidity suits and perhaps more crystals to transform more humans into Eldar worms. Anubis could be stealing parts for someone else with the promise of an artifact as payment.
  12. I'm hoping not but fearing so. Marvel is in a bit of a quandary here: do you replace beloved character actors with different ones and risk losing fans or will it work like it has with James Bond, up to this point at least? Unlike the comics, where you can write a character who doesn't age (or ages very little) for decades, actors can't keep up forever. So by necessity, you must lose them over time.
  13. Definitely what you'd smoke to provoke visions of the Mountains of Madness. 😱
  14. Seems like they're shifting away from cute toward more badass.
  15. Lobstahs & Lighthouses sounds like it should be an RPG.
  16. And another superhero universe must now face the Cassandra Prophecy of Doom.
  17. I feel I must defend the superiority of Canadian maple syrup. Even if it's mostly made by French Canadians.😋
  18. I dont think you need more space, if you introduced a break in the lines so that it was two columns you would double the available lines to 18 and even Duke should be able to use that. The lines are currently about 2/3 of a page wide, 1/3 of a page per column should be more than enough.

    Probably separate. Small success in the background but nothing major I have San Angelo enemies and conquerors, killers and crooks. I'd like to include at least one super villain. 2 or 3 heroes. (Depending on who can play that day) Who would you choose that's not in Battlegrounds?
  20. I grew to view the series of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea with apathy because of the scripts not the acting. But that was the series that most people know him from. I have seen the original version of The Fly which has Vincent Price in a surprising non-villainous role with David Hedison as the scientist. I have both the Bond films which has Hedison as Felix Leiter, the first actor to repeat the role. David lived to 92 which is no mean feat. May he rest in peace.
