  1. Looks like you're trying to use the Attack Versus Alternate Defense modifier. That modifier is for attacks that work against a different defense that usual (for example, Power Defense instead of Energy Defense). You want to use the Alternate Combat Value modifier which includes the OCV vs. DMCV option you want at +1/4. As a more general comment, if, for some reason, the desired modifier is not available, you can use Custom Modifier. Details on using it are available in the Hero Designer documentation.

    Avengers Infinity War with spoilers

    Does it really matter how silly a plan Thanos may have? Who cares if it's going to work or not? Isn't the only important thing the threat that he presents to the heroes? And I certainly don't see the MCU as a "realistic superhero" milieu.

    When populations start getting out of hand again, he just snaps his fingers again for another culling.

    POD for 6e1 and 6e2

    From what I've heard, they've pulled them because the light blue index entries in the original color PDF comes out as a very light grey when printed and apparently not readable in some copies. It's my understanding that the plan is to fix it then offer the POD again. It's unknown how long that will take.
  5. Sure, why not? We've already seen a different actor play a younger Sarek, what's wrong with different actors playing Pike, Spock, and Number One? And I would imagine that we will meet Spock. He is the main character's foster brother, after all.

    Petey's 2018 Winter Olympics Thread

    The women's hockey tourney started a couple of days ago. The men's hockey tourney starts on Wednesday (USA vs. Slovenia at 7:10 AM ET/4:10 AM PT on NBCSN). A couple of web sites that might be useful to you instead of the app (or to supplement it). Can't comment on the app itself (as expected, it is not available in Canada): http://olympics.org http://nbcolympics.com

    Skills: useful or just for flavor?

    Personally, I tend to design characters with 40 or 50 points of Skills, Generally, they will have several of the standard skills, a few Knowledge Skills, a Language or two, one or two Professional Skills, one or two Area Knowledge Skills, maybe a Culture Skill or two, and, if appropriate, one or more Science Skills.

    The new Jumanji[SPOILER WARNING]

    I was never trying to claim that board games were more popular than computer games. I was merely countering your condescending “who plays those anymore" comment with an indicator that the hobby game industry is growing and thriving. However, I’m done here. Clearly, my point was lost on you.

    The new Jumanji[SPOILER WARNING]

    Here's some numbers for the hobby game industry from 2016: https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/38012/hobby-games-market-over-1-4-billion My impression is that similar growth continued in 2017.

    Can we forgive old movies?

    Joan Rivers made Rabbit Test not Nancy Walker. Nancy wasn't even in the movie.

    RIP Robert Guiaume

    His best known role after Lion King was in Aaron Sorkin’s Sports Night.

    Supergirl

    I might agree if he didn't experience the thousand years, but my impression is that he did.

    Supergirl

    Of course, that is a fault of viewers like you and not the actor or the producers. And it's General Talbot, by the way.

    Supergirl

    Are you referring to Glorinth fooling around with his timeline in the Valor (a post-crisis name for Mon-El) series? Because otherwise I can't really recall any time travel associated with him -- unless you're thinking of the 1000 years in the Phantom Zone as time travel.

    New Series--The Orville

    Hmm. I have to disagree with you there. I felt DS9 was far better than TNG.

    News From High Rock Press

    To be honest, folks, until Jason posts some kind of update, it is probably best to just assume that eveything beyond Golden Age and Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins is dead. That's not to say that such projects may not appear at sometime, but really until Jason actually announces that a project is being worked on, it seems silly to put much energy into even thinking about that project.

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    Yes, in Canada, it is available on Space and the Crave TV streaming service. Outside of Canada and the United States, it is available on Netflix.

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    Well, the way they chose to recycle the original pilot involved Spock committing mutiny. They could have chosen a different framing story.

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    Well, to be honest.

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    Just a warning for anyone planning on recording the first Discovery episode on CBS this Sunday. You may want to record an extra hour or so just in case football runs late.

    New Series--The Orville

    If you're recording anything on CBS or FOX on Sunday evenings during football season, you should probably add an extra hour to account for potential football overruns. In fact, it's not a bad idea anytime for CBS Sundays as the network has a number of sports properties that can run late.

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    That's nonsense. The decision to use a Star Trek show to launch CBS All Access was made before the specific show was developed. Star Trek: Discovery was specifically created and developed to air on the streaming service after an initial episode on CBS itself. Now, that's not to say that it will be good, but that's a risk with any TV series. The series has had its growing pains, it seems, and as a result ended up being postponed -- making The Good Fight (The Good Wife sequel) the first original scripted series to air on CBS All Access -- and frankly, in my opinion, that series was the equal of its predecessor. Thus, I'm pretty sure that CBS is not using All Access as a dumping ground.

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    Are we absolutely sure that the first two episodes go together as one story?
  24. rjcurrie

    STAR TREK: Discovery

    Yes. That is correct. For Americans, anyway. In Canada, all episodes will air on Space, our science fiction channel.
