  1. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Just read Brian Ruckley's "Winterbirth" and "Bloodheir", the first two books in a series. While not a BAD read, it's sort of the endless narration/character development of Robert Jordan mixed with low-fantasy could-we-please-get-to-the-evil storylines of George RR Martin. Again, not a BAD read, but not something you plow through in a weekend.
  2. Re: A DC Animated-style HeroMachine Good enough! Thanks, Egyptoid! (and repped!)
  3. Re: A DC Animated-style HeroMachine Without having to go through all 126 pages of this forum (though there are some excellent pics seen via perusal), is there an English version of this? Simply curious...I can make-do, of course, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks.
  4. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Great read. The next book, "Red Seas Under Red Skies" is equally as good. Scott Lynch is quite talented and a worthy inheritor of the Fafhrd and Mouser style of thieves-as-heroes style. Reading "Winterbirth" by Brian Ruckley, myself. So far so good. Similar to Erickson but perhaps a touch more traditional in some ways. Prior to that I read Joe Abercrombie's series, including "The Blade Itself", "Before They Are Hanged" and "Last Argument of Kings". I couldn't put 'em down. Highly recommended for fans of epic fantasy in the better-than-Jordan-as-good-as-Martin-not-quite-as-good-as-G.G.Kay genre. But that's just me
  5. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... "Twisting the rope".
  6. Re: A Thread for Random Musings I should've said no to so many things...
  7. Re: A Thread for Random Musings "Wurdle wurdle" has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a comic book.
  8. Re: Opinion wanted about coverage of Detect Life Force power I agree with pretty much everything above. Disc/anal (and yeah, that does look dirty) would allow a person to not only know what sort of life force they were detecting (a middle-aged male in reasonably good health), but would allow them to recognize that particular life force again. Which could be problematic at some point, especially when the middle-age male in reasonably good health has the same exact life force as a particular hero or villain in your campaign... The one thing I don't agree on is the "is there life" question. If you're looking at a body yeah, you can say "is that alive?", but if you're casting about in the dark and there's nothing but corpses (whether you know they're there or not), then no, nothing happens, not "you detect vessels that formerly held life forces". Not sure if Badger was goin' for that or not, but I thought I'd offer my opinion anyway Discriminatory would allow the person to filter out bacteria, insects and so on, too, so you could concentrate on "big" life forms/forces. Probably.
  9. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... At this point I pretty much will buy all three authors' books without checking. Stackpole's 'Draconis' series and "Once a Hero" are some of my favorites. Gemmell is (was) another, and Mike Resnick is yet another. Love Resnick's sci-fi. Love it.
  10. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Most excellent read.
  11. Re: A Thread for Random Musings The third puppy is most definitely not the charm.
  12. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. I missed this thread...
  13. Re: A Thread for Random Musings Had to work last night. Not bartend so much as cover karaoke and do a little extra catch-up work on the books. I also got to throw a guy out for being a putz, but had to listen to a couple of bar-tards drone on endlessly about nothing in particular. It's part of the job, I know, but Mondays are supposed to be my day off. In any case, I came to a startling conclusion during all this guff: My girl is hawt
