    I wondered about that myself. If you are attempting to paint immigration in a good light having a montage about how many times aliens have nearly destroyed or enslaved you isn't going to do it. I think if I lived in this particular universe I would be totally fine spreading krytonite throughout the atmosphere. Or anything else to make the place less attractive to dangerous aliens

    Maptool and Hero System

    @Deadman still working on it. Have to negotiate with the Misses and the DIY for time @ScottRuggles all those things are possible but with differing levels of difficulty. You have quite a long list and I don't have time to answer all of them. Duplicating mooks is as simple as ctrl c ctrl v. Tracking stats is as simple as deciding what stats your campaign requires. You can build macros to modify them automatically, but you and your players can do it manually if you have to. Maptool supports snap to grid and facing for hex grids out of the box. You can do a lot with the current AOE templates but I am going to improve them for Hero System.

    Well obviously. Humans are horrible and dogs are lovely unless corrupted by humans

    The person who won the bid for the Banksy work that was subsequently shredded has decided to keep it as a piece of art history. Presumably a new historic low in art buyer gullibility!

    Maptool and Hero System

    For Maptool? Anything you can run Java on.
  6. I am a contributor to the Maptool project. If you are unfamiliar with Maptool its a open source, totally free virtual table top (VTT) application. Its is probably the longest running VTT project, has more functionality than any other and is still growing. What it is definitely NOT is the nicest looking or easiest to use 😉 We like to refer to it as the Millennium Falcon of VTTs as it might not look like much but she's got it where it counts kid. Anyway, I am hoping to run a hero system campaign in the not to distant future and am in the process of trying to improve some of the hex based features (such as drawing tools and area effect templates) but was wondering if there are any missing killer features that would make running a hero system game that much easier? Have you ever thought, "It would be so much easier to play hero system if I could just ..." ? If you have I would love to hear what it is and maybe I can do something about it. No promises mind 😉 Jagged

    As I only pop in here once in a while so I totally missed this. Shame as I would probably have pledged. Do you think it will get opened up after the initial run?

    They are not actually very complicated. Just don't ask me to name the various fielding positions
  9. MF clearly deserved shooting
  10. Which no doubt means music of black origin.

    Don't worry. Once they start marrying each other they will be too busy fighting over where to store the cutlery to bother about us. But if we want to be doubly sure we can send them some cushions.
  13. Assuming the rest of the universe grows at the same rate as this pest-riden planet. He could have reduced it to 10% of course. So I reckon the imaginary Marvel Universe procreates at a slower rate. Maybe Thanos adjusted everyone's libido too! 😮
  14. I think 10/10 is justified. For this type of movie it's about as close to perfect as you are likely to get. Personally I never liked these "cosmic" team ups in the comics and up until now have not enjoyed the film equivalent. This one, unusually, managed to deliver on the hype. Given the huge number of characters they can't all get backstory but what we get is quality. They do well taking Thanos beyond the pantomime. The scenes with Gamora and the flashback to his home world combined with the decision to drop the "courting Death" idea produce a villain that is at least an understandable psychopath! On the acting side my MVP Award goes to Chris Hemsworth. His scenes with Rocket were excellent. Not many actors could deliver the jokes while retaining the underlying sadness. Awesome. And lastly I don't usually seen movies on their opening weekend but I was glad I went early to avoid the inevitable spoliers that will come. Marvel managed to surprise me and it's rare that a movie does that. And if I had made bets on which characters lived and died I would have lost all my money! Black Panther and Spiderman? No way could they be in any danger.

    If Douglas Adams was still alive I would expect him to edit his H2G2 script to say "a species so primitive they still think smartphones are a good idea."
