  1. Would the character be restored to life in his/her own body, or would it be like two to three weeks after the funeral, the character would just reappear before his friends and family? "Hey guys. Any calls while I was out?"
  2. I know there's a version of Traveller for D20. I can't vouch for what the game is like today.
  3. I thought they looked nice, but that they belonged more on Grandma's knick-knack shelf than on a gaming table. I'd rather have something more easily legible when I throw--which means either pips or Arabic numerals. Anything else is just a fancy conversation starter--as "Where'd you get those?" On a semi-related note, I've always thought that one of the nifty things about six-sided dice is that you can get them just about anywhere. The other polyhedrals you have to find at a game or comic book store, although I have seen packs of polyhedral dice on sale at Wal-Mart recently. But any place that sells playing cards--drug stores, liquor stores, convenience stores even--are likely to have a pack of six-siders for one to two bucks, depending on where you get them. Which can be quite convenient if you're in a small town and the only place that's open is the Dollar General store, and you suddenly get the urge to play Champions or Old School Traveller. Pick up snacks, pick up dice, and you're good to go. And I'm sure some of you have seen at least once those display cards with dice dispensers that you can take out a pair at a time--those are usually ninety-nine cents a pair. I've started a small collection of those just because I rather like the notion. They're there, and they're dice--what more justification do you need?
  4. Anyone remember this meme? Well--Guess What?
  5. So--trying to re-moisturize it after it dried out sitting in the fridge?
  6. Let me guess--the rabbit's name is "Shallow Hal."
  7. I don't know what happened to the picture--my apologies. Anyway, I like this version of the character the best, so Quackhell gets to post a pic in response to my disappeared pic.
  8. Saw this posted on Facebook and thought I'd pass it along. Not only are the images useful for medieval/fantasy maidens, but the fact that this young woman taught herself to make them is proof that your superhero characters can learn to make their own costumes through patience and effort, just as she did.
  9. Were those actual bird feathers? Because feathers would be a really easy thing to fake, I think.
  10. Rush Limbaugh Diagnosed With Lung Cancer
  11. All Right---I'm going to throw this one out for everyone, because honestly, I really like it---
  12. KC scored twice in the fourth quarter to pull ahead 24-20. Less than three minutes to go.
  13. Some fodder for a Pulp Hero campaign, if anyone's interested.
  14. For myself, I'd like to know why the AIs decided to attack Mars--whether it was an extreme reaction to human bigotry, or something else. I tend to get annoyed by unsolved or unaddressed mysteries.
  15. I maintain that if anyone from the Next Generation were to appear on Picard, it should be his greatest adversary--Q. Perhaps they're saving him for Season 2. Another cameo idea--by all rights, Jake Sisko should have been the one to interview Picard. I'd like to think it would have ended better. So androids are now called "Synthetics." Wouldn't they prefer the term "Artificial Person?" I wish I could figure out what the Romulans are up to. I always figured they never needed to emulate other races--and here they are, it seems, trying to emulate the Borg. What's the big idea? All the above is just nitpickery with a smattering of facetiousness. To my mind this is a really great show, and I'm glad I subscribed to CBS All Access to get it. I will continue to watch.
  16. Perhaps "Novice" could be substituted for "Noobie/Rookie." Hope that helps.
  17. Dutch Artists Celebrate George Orwell's Birthday With Party Hats On Cameras
  18. "Dopes And Babies."  That's what he said about our military.
