  1. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it...
  2. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... I just finished Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. It is very much science fiction of the good old social commentary vein. Extremely well written and constructed. Nested, connected short stories. I am amazed they could make it into a movie and now I want to see it to see how successful they were.
  3. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Professor Ishmael Strom!
  4. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Just finished The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Supposedly he's a local guy, into SCA and gaming, massive geek cred. He also just happens to have scorched off a pretty damn good novel, the first of a short series. The hero telling his tale after his derring-do is done. Took me two tries to get going on it but once I reached the turning point I was hooked.
  5. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Awesomesauce.
  6. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. That warrior woman is off the charts amazing but I don't know if she is Exalted enough. Maybe if she had a frost giant's heart clenched in her teeth or had just cloven a mountain in twain. If she won the battle all by herself, that would be Exalted enough. I wish it wasn't a contracted piece because I would love a print.
  7. Re: Order of the Stick Seems like Rich could get a lot of mileage out of copy-paste. Or if you rack up a million dollar Kickstarter you might be able to afford an intern or even two.
  8. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Pugnacious.
  9. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Rome looks plausible and not preposterous. That doesn't happen often, or often enough, in cover art. Lovely piece.
  10. Re: Order of the Stick Catholicism: if it feels right, you're doing it wrong.
  11. Re: Order of the Stick An actual racist comment from someone not of the human race, because I doubt Malak cares what shade skin flat-tooths have.
  12. Re: Order of the Stick Well, if Luke used it on Vader, boy, would his face be red.
  13. Re: Order of the Stick With as much vague and indeterminate ancestry as floats around fantasy I would be reluctant to use that spell in fear of suddenly finding out I just hexed Grandpa.
  14. Re: Order of the Stick When the GM wants you to wander about a windy canyon, it's best to just get to it.
  15. Re: Order of the Stick I do love a bad guy I can admire.
  16. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Yeah, great job illuminating her with the light radiating from her own spell. The expression on her face shows her love and passion for the art.
  17. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? I had caught an isolated episode here and there but, because my co-workers talked it up, I've been plowing through Community on Hulu. Haven't seen an episode yet that hasn't made me laugh out loud.
  18. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Angry Bird would so tag me with that flaming whip while I'm staring slackjawed at her plumage.
  19. Re: Order of the Stick I thought the unwritten rule was for carrion crawlers, although everyone of a certain gaming vintage seems to have a Roper tale from the Poop Rivers of the Slave Lords module.
  20. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. I agree. The allure of that material is the soft focus effect that this overlay technique seems to do really well. I like the way it lets you blend your character into the world rather than be entirely contained within a line, Storn.
  21. Re: Order of the Stick Did you just make a call based on a stick figure's body language? Tarquin knows. He's practically a GMPC.
  22. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Much gentler line, more organic. Is that shading or an insignia tattoo on the face?
  23. Re: Order of the Stick Malack is really starting to grow on me. Nice guy, for a priest of Nergal.
  24. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... I'm working on Neal Stephenson's latest, REAMDE, and it might be his best. If you would be interested in a globe-hopping hacker thriller with a MMORPG backstory, check it out.
