  1. Thank you for the recommendation! Apparently, there are some dice rolling plugins for wordpress...not sure how well they work. I might just make all dice rolls and post the results.
  2. I am trying to launch a "Play-by-Post" HERO 5th Pulp game and need a site where my players/I can share maps, discuss "In Character" and "Out-Of-Character" topics, roll dice, essentially game in an asynchronous fashion. Just to be clear, I do not need a VTT... I attempted to use "World Anvil" but everything there makes me feel like I spend FAR more time fighting their overly convoluted interface than creating my game content. At one point, I attempted to generate a link to join my campaign that sent my player to a TOTALLY different campaign! Argh!!!! Does anyone have any suggestions for a low cost place to host a "Play-by-Post" HERO 5th game? Thanks in advance!
  3. I also recently finished the first "Bobiverse" book "We Are Legion (We Are Bob)" by Dennis E. Taylor... Highly recommended as a light SciFi book or literary palette cleanser! I plan to read book 2 soon.
  4. Amen to that. Consider it chalked!
  5. You thought I was being serious?!? Did you miss your morning coffee or did you critically fail your "Detect Irony" roll? Maybe you just didn't see the emoji? Here is another for you...🙄
  6. I owe a big “thank you” to those of you on this forum who recommended “Fated”, first book in the “Alex Verus” series by Benedict Jacka. I have only just started this book, but I am really enjoying it! After scrolling through 7 years of replies to this thread, I kept seeing this “Benedict Jacka” fellow repeatedly mentioned (in an overwhelmingly positive manner). I had to check it out for myself…and thus far, I am glad that I did!
  7. This is a genre that shows the HERO System's power to simulate almost anything the GM can imagine. Doc, your "Cog Shield" is a very cool idea!
  8. Thank you. Now I know what happened. Powers broke my brain with his convoluted plot!
  9. I was afraid all your head-banging left you wandering off with amnesia! Great to see you here again, Boz! :D

      Thank you!


      Glad to see that you are still fighting the good fight...  The community on this forum really is a wonderful mix of individuals!

  10. I am also a fan of Tim Powers. I have considered re-reading On Stranger Tides. Even though it takes a little longer to get rolling than I normally like, I remember it being pretty kick-a$$ once it gets going. Like you, I have never been able to remember The Anubis Gate storyline. This happened (again) immediately after my most recent re-read! I KNOW that The Anubis Gate is one of my favorite books of all time but I cannot tell you why...because I simply cannot recall any details! Some would say this happens because I am getting older, but this has happened with this one book since the first time I read it back in the mid 1980s... This weird amnesia does not happen to me with other books... 😕
  11. Thank you for this recommendation! The first e-book in this series is FREE!
  12. A few days ago, I finished reading "Three Hearts and Three Lions" by Poul Anderson. I picked up this book for two reasons... 1. Supposedly, this is one of those fantasy classics that predates The LOTR trilogy (if only by a year). 2. I usually enjoy books that feature a modern man thrust against his will into a parallel Earth where magic works. Thankfully, this is a very short book. More of a long novella in my opinion. I would not have finished it (and almost didn't) if it were longer than 170 pages. I did find parts interesting… Sadly, I found an equal number of parts annoying or just too simplistic for my taste. The majority of annoying parts were found in the first half of the book…which contributed to my early desire to stop reading. I am glad that I finished, but only marginally so. I give this book a 2 out of 5 on the Goodreads' scale.
