    I was born in the summer of my 27th year. I went home to a place I'ld never been before. There, on Ventura highway in the sunshine, the days were longer and the nights were stronger than moonshine.

    RIP: Aretha Franklin

    My first experience of Aretha was hearing 'I Say A Little Prayer' coming from the speakers on a Longine's eight track player. I think I was eight, but I remember. We'll all move on, and, hopefully, there will be something else to replace the beauty we're now without.

    A Human Firewing

    The DNPC could go through the furnace and NOT come out with extensive power. If it burns away weakness and imperfection, the DNPC might step out the other side with perfect beauty, grace, and greater mental capacity than any other human in the galaxy (burning away weakness) but also be perfectly insubstantial and no more solid than the light from a nearby star. That would bring a whole new sort of plot to the story arc.

    GURPS was, originally, intended to be Generic and Universal. In other words, game mechanics did not need genre specific modifications. Hero manages genres by varying the build mechanics while execution mechanics are (mostly) the same. GURPS retains the same build and execution mechanics, expecting the genre to be imposed by the GM and players. My experience with GURPS is that while you can use it for almost any genre, it doesn't do ANY genre as well as the gaming system that would be it's competition within that genre, but that's JUST my experience.

    Creepy Pics.

    It's America. Anything scary, different, or somewhat annoying gets to eat lead. So we give the wasps cute names to make it less likely that we'll destroy our personal property trying to blow the little suckers away.

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    The Sniffer On Netflix, of course. Yes, I have to turn on the subtitles and read what they're saying, but it's STILL the best new-to-me show around.

    Support : Jaclyn Stone Support : Julia (Mister Carrion's pet vulture) Anything : Primates Really Into Crime and Killing Sprees (The P.R.I.C.K.S.) title 3 - Time Capsules Capsule Corporation is always opening new vistas of research and development, and with their acquisition of The Time Machine the future is limitless, but only if they can protect the past! Someone has infiltrated corporate headquarters and stolen the prototype 'time capsule'. Outfitting the original machine with a positronic brain, the corporation begins to send specially trained men and women to find the culprit and return with the prototype. As long as they prevent the past from changing (the positronic brain has complete knowledge of history and can tell where changes are occurring), they have all the time in the world.

    "I shall enter the house and attempt to remove the joke ... I shall be aided by the sound of sombre music, played on gramophone records, and also by the chanting of laments by the men of Q Division ... The atmosphere thus created should protect me in the eventuality of me reading the joke."

    2018 Ultimate SUPERDRAFT

    Support: The League of Assassins Anything: The Phantom Anything : Moloch the Mystic title number two - ORION Hunts! The ghost who walks has been fighting evil alone for generations, but in the modern world alone isn't good enough. After a chance meeting with agents of the clandestine ORION (a black book United Nations anti-terrorist organization), The Phanton begins to work with ORION's top agents Enforcer (a highly skilled clandestine operative accidentally granted the ability to manifest his will as an energy field) and Manta Man (a prominent marine biologist and inventor who developed the manta suit to eliminate the modern pirates that killed his family). It was a perfectly timed corroboration, as Moloch the Mystic had approached the nefarious Ra's Al Ghul and informed him the signs suggested the world was ripe for the pickings. The League of Assassins has mobilized, and all that stands between them and a world remade to their liking are the agents of ORION!
