  3. Karma? Knowing that you actually deserve the suffering in your life? That your fortunate neighbor really is better than you? Oh, no, that’ll make people miserable. Karma’s complicated, too. Life would be so much easier if people merely had to follow some simple, definite rule about some simple, definite activity such as what they eat or how they dress. Follow the rule, and you’re a good person. Or at least you think you are, and isn’t that what matters? The Abrizons of Spim will not eat tribble on Fleenday. They believe Lhash’ka forbade it.

  6. "At last we found it, the Lair of Heroes!" Shayd smiled triumphantly, the human woman grinned merrily, causing the old scar near her otherwise lovely lips to stretch a bit further still. She was game for anything, a swordswoman and an adventurer who had faced many challenged. "Lair of Heroes? Hhmm, we of the Orck call it the Halls of the Brave," Drega, Daughter of Bu-ba, great tribble hunter, prepared her own curved weapon, "But yes, at last we found it! It will be glorious to find the treasures within!" "I think our guide found it,' the Raakastah mystic Growf pointed

  9. My big problem with WW84 was the ethical dilemma of a man literally losing his life so that Steve can "live" again. Not very heroic to be honest. She doesn't question the morality of this even once in the movie. Lord's plan and motives are also executed very clumsily throughout. Wiig's Cheetah was actually a pretty good character until the tacked on "animal" transformation...which was beyond forced. The movie was way too long for the story it was telling as well. I didn't hate it, but it was nowhere near as good as the 2017 film.

  12. Theer had an image problem. Why did so many people fear her? She blamed Timra’Keth for the most part. The people of the world blamed her for the wild, unpredictable dangers of the world without seeing their beauty. They called her a god of destruction though she could not be held responsible for such things (though she did appreciate such things). No, people were perfectly capable of destruction without her help. Nor was she the god of death or of fire or of war, yet people attributed these things to her no matter how pretty the butterflies were. The world was born of chaos, and chaos will be

  13. E'il creates and distributes the beginnings of Our favored sentient life, the Eech. Originally there were nine times thirty-seven Eech, and then E'il doubled that number for good measure. He spread them throughout the world, no two together, each Eech on or near the shoreline of a larger-than-average land, and the Eech sang as the waves of the sea crashed against them from time to time, and conversed with whatever other sophonts (and others) were nearby, if those others were of a mind to talk. They feared not pain; they feared not fire; they feared not folly; they feared not fear, or

  14. I'll never quite understand the obsession comics fans have with continuity. I love comics but I don't think a realistic overall timeline is compatible with the genre. Bruce Wayne must be almost 100 years old by now FFS.

  15. Mirth watched the smelly humans, the shy Charr-Loti, the Rakasta-whom-Folly-can't spell, the dryads of the wood, and the rest of the sentient folk live and die, and live, and die. There were some great moments in these limited life spans, with Death making the life oh, so sweet. But there was entirely too much grief in the passing. Not to mention, the horrid disposal method each race used for their dead (though she had to admit, the simple composting of the dryads made some sense). Something had to be done. An example, perhaps? Yes, Mirth would build a shining example of how to send a loved on

  17. Timra'Keth observed as the Charr-Lotti came full into this world with the proper attitude: freaking out! Of course, they prayed to her quickly, often without meaning to. "Oh sweet Timra'Keth what is that bird thing and why is it BARKING?", "I think that Orck is eying me for a snack? Goddess, WHY?" , and of course, "Merciful gods, the human woman is setting her flimsy shelter on fire because I peeked in... is everyone an arsonist?" Oh yes, very loyal subjects indeed. At last a sensible people. And yet it occurred to her, that strong as webs might be, the homes of the Char-Lotti and

  18. Timra'Keth watched as new peoples arose, beasts spawned, and realms took root. Of course, it was all very dangerous. How would these beings survive the challenges put before them? How might they thrive? And did any of these beings have a lick of sense? Couldn't they feel the tension in the very surface of the world? It turned out, no they could not. Some had keener senses than others, but they just weren't aware enough. She needed beings that would be both fearsome and fearful, so they might teach others to be cautious while being the epitome of it. And so she took dust from earth, an

  19. I think the key would be to make them, not White supremacists, but European supremacists. I've met no few European snobs who tend to look down on America, Canada, Australia and the like as boorish Johnny-come-latelys without the "rich culture" and "mature civilization" of Europe. In fact I've often heard Europeans lamenting the detrimental effect that cultural "imperialism" by the United States through their mass-market media organizations has had on their native cultures. For such people, whether or not those countries are predominantly white isn't relevant, they're still provincial and paroc

  21. 6e powers haven't changed enough to make them irrelevant. If you wanted to simulate them through 6e powers, you'd pretty much use the same route as you would have used in 4e. I'd also recommend the Incomplete Character rules by James Jandebeur, which can be seen in Digital Hero #10 (or on the Wayback Machine here. He started with the Spirits rules as a basis, looked at what they had in common with Vehicles, Bases, Computers, AI, and so on, and synthesized them into a pretty decent rules package.

  25. That letter suggests there's something to age impairing mental function after all. Ironically, it was fair for one of the signatories to claim, "We are facing threats greater than at any other time since our country was founded." He just doesn't recognize that the threat includes himself.

    Campaign: The Rescued

    Suddenly transferred into a medieval fantasy setting, a handful of people from our world find themselves inhabiting the bodies of powerful heroic figures there. For their own reasons, the gods of this fantasy world selected people whose personalities matched certain criteria they were looking for and were about to die in our world. Perhaps one was flatlining on an operating table, another was seconds away from a fatal car crash. Plucked from our world, they are given a choice: accept the death that was coming for them or take a chance on this new world. The bodies they are given to inh
