  1. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Don't expect too much from the TV show. It's marginally entertaining, but it doesn't capture the magic (excuse the pun) of the books. The characters don't match the ones in my head. I thought it just might be me, but every Butcher fan I talked to has said the same thing. As for the books, I'm planning on investing in cryogenics so I don't have to wait between releases.
  2. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From our last Valdorian Age game: The PC's come upon a bridge attended by bandits who offer to escort them across for a nominal fee. Brego the Barbarian's player OOC: This is a cheesy line, but I've always wanted to say it. Brego: Certainly. Do you accept... pain!?! *promptly tackles lead bandit* *********************** Less of a quote than a mishap of the night: The PC's hear an elderly woman runs a bed & breakfast just outside town. Marcus knocks on the door and waits patiently. As the door opens, B
  3. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... We're starting a Valdorian Age game, so one of my players has been re-reading Howard's Conan stories, and I've been brushing up on Leiber's Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser.
  4. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From our first Valdorian Age game: Brego (barbarian): I say we just break open the door and slaughter all of these guys. Marcus (swordsman): That's not a good idea. Do you see all those stick-like thingies with the string thingies between them? Brego: *pause* I know what a bow is!
  5. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From Friday’s Jedi Academy campaign: Jedi Knight Verra Fortuna (no relation, it’s like “Smith” with Twi’leks) just delivered two disabling wounds to a Dark Jedi’s arms. Verra: Throw down your arms and come with us! I gave Verra's player +2d6 to her Presence Attack for that one.
  6. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... A player reminded me of one from an Alternity Hero game last year. The team has just "retrieved" a Thuldan double agent known to be a mindwalker. Dimitri: I think we can trust him. Elliot: Tell me that again when he melts our brains.
  7. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... I see no shame in borrowing from Dresden. But I may only be saying that because I've done it. I swear the Temple Dog was only around for one adventure
  8. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From a more-fun-than-expected post apocalyptic Devil May Cry style campaign: “What’s the difference between a Quasit and an Imp?” Kallthor the Demonologist (upon miserably failing his second KS: Demons roll of the night): Uh, um, Quasits… are crunchier… and Imps like to hide their valuables in unsuspecting travelers’ rectums. Diego: *sigh* Everyone go check your rectums while Kallthor cracks open a grimoire. Nash: This guy’s not fooling anyone. We all know his real name's John.
  9. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Currently re-reading my favorite Sci-fi; Hyperion.

  12. Re: I can't wrap my head around a.... I could only make it 1/2 way through the first book. All I could think was "Drizzt in Space". I need more realism. And I hate it when every character is the best in the world at what they do. That was one of only two books in my life that were too bad to finish.
  13. Re: [GM Help Needed] Superhero Mystries No. See my clarification in post #12
  14. Re: I can't wrap my head around a.... I never could get the hang of Thursdays. Sorry. Couldn't resist.
  15. Re: I can't wrap my head around a.... I've never played a straight-up Martial Artist in a Supers game. It just doesn't seem fun to me. I've done plenty of characters with some MA, but they had powers too. I'm not too crazy about Flagsuits either, however as a GM I had a really compelling NPC who was a paraplegic, disillusioned "fallen flagsuit" from the Golden Age.
