  1. Re: A Thread for Random Musings Just got back from meeting MC Lars and MC Frontalot at their gig at the Uptown in Oakland. They both signed the girls boobs.
  2. Re: A Thread for Random Musings My house if full of exhausted 20 something women, crashed out everywhere after a successful night at the club modeling my stuff. Where there's a will, there is a way....
  3. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Here's an anecdote for y'all, possibly apropos of nothing... At this point anyone in this thread knows I weigh in heavy on the Feminist team. Adamantly and vocally. I also, however, once ran one of the most historically accurate Renaissance Faire Actor's Guilds in California. Which put me on the horns of a dilemma... how to make playing a historically accurate woman at Faire NOT suck. I ended up giving the direction for the "Proper" women over to my costume director, and the Camp Followers (Dubh Challie "Black Wives") over t
  4. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Yeah, I managed to attract the attention and later affections of the hot gamer girl of our circle of acquaintances, the one who went to Dundracon every year with her SCA group to give fight demos. Being a fellow theater geek helped. Part of why I tend to scoff at a lot of the generalizations that get thrown out in some of these inane statements

  6. Re: Quote of the Week From My Life. "'Sanity' is the term little people use who want you to conform to their paradigm. F*ck it." -Me, to an old friend, a fellow artist
  7. Re: Zeppelins It'll all work out in the end. I fully intend to build my own airship, damnit. You can be part of the crew
  8. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Seriously... I mean wasn't the whole reason for the kickstarter in part to get the funds to obtain all the games she's going to have to play through and dissect?
  9. Re: Bows, Brace, and DCV Thought this was both interesting and potentially relevant, in a game changing, paradigm shifting sorta way
  10. Re: The cranky thread Sometimes, you have to accept it's time to kick over the table and walk away from the game
  11. Re: Zeppelins *sigh* I saw you'd posted to this thread and was hoping you'd have some good news about Airship Ventures, damnit! I'm gonna miss looking up and seeing the local airship cruising around
  12. Re: The cranky thread There are a host of Cthulhu Mythos carols on Youtube that have been getting it done for me. Edit: Here, to get you started...
  13. Re: How do you feel about House Rules? Not in any books I know of... I think Susano might be the origin of that one. I tend to think of it as "Bruising" rules, and 1 BOD per 20 Stun past defenses seems to be the usual level folk set it at. I have yet to actually use it in play, but I'll probably do so if I ever run another Supers campaign.
  14. Re: How do you feel about House Rules? This is pretty much my take on it as well. Some examples I can think of right off the top of my head include the old -1 OCV if you move and attack, I've got some rules around for Long Term Stun (Shock, essentially), I decoupled Control and Pool costs in VPP's before it was cool (6th Edition change), & made rules for Pushing your Luck for my JI campaign, back in the day.
  15. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Been watching Archer, whole series in a marathon. I'm mostly amused, occasionally offended, and have decided that Dr. Krieger is one of my favorite supporting characters of all time.
  16. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Amusing inversion, for satirical reflection... Bronies
  17. Re: Wish List: Other Licensed Content pretty nifty thread to peruse, although I note they've missed several things I'd consider vital (not a single person mentioned hemp, f'rinstance)
  18. Re: Wish List: Other Licensed Content Seriously. Heck I've thought about writing a gritty hard S/F PA setting. If I decide to get more serious about writing it might just happen.
  19. Re: What Are You Listening To Right Now? Schaffer the Darklord dropped a new album last month, and I'm giving it my first listen. and it's free on his site, anyone's interested. Dark NY Nerdcore hiphop with black metal and punk influences. http://schafferthedarklord.bandcamp.com/album/junk-drawer Oooh... it's good remixes of Battlefonts and Nerd Lust, two of my favorites

  21. Re: Wish List: Other Licensed Content AFAIK, the rumors are 100% correct. Fallout was originally designed to use GURPS under the hood, but after the deal broke down they designed their own system. I don't mind SPECIAL, and put it in the same rank of game system as... oh, Morrow Project after they'd adapted the BRP skills system (3rd edition IIRC). It does what it was designed to do, but lacks internal balance
  22. Re: Wish List: Other Licensed Content Fallout is a setting that could use a good tabletop adaptation. The SPECIAL ruleset hasn't ever managed to get any serious traction as a tabletop game, probably because it's kinda middle of the road, design wise.
