    Hero fan since my mimeograph of 1st ed! Thought 2nd ed was perfect. Still do ;)

    You know, I'm just going to put this right here where I can find it:

  1. I am going to need at least four explanations before i can decide if this is funny: Who the guy in the picture is, who the guy tweeting is, who Thrawn is, and just what they heck is being talked about.
  2. Because their smile muscles are in there butt. Every cat owner knows that.
  3. I don't know if this helps you, but my wife typically goes through two Fire tablets a year. My daughter goes through one a year (not as heavy a user). The "amazon fire os" is, from what I understand, Android with a large chunk of Android ripped out of it (such as Google services-- not the most important (to me, anyway), but one of the first most people notice). Allegedly, it's still fine and stable. Our household experience is "not so much; no." As an old man, I can't say enough for having an honest-to-God keyboard-- so much so that at my last job, I used to carry o
  4. Ah.; the misunderstanding is my fault. I tend to wrongly assume that people typically give as few s@ts about pomp and pageantry as I do. Carry on celebrating a guy who dresses like pretty much the entire country; whatever. 😕
  5. Yeah. I still don't get it. It's cold; he dressed warm. I'm not going to go nuts over some guy with a touch of foresight.
  6. I was born and raised in Circle, Alaska. Mittens are the only reason I still have fingers. Gloves will never be as warm, period. I, too, am at a loss as for why the nation is so fascinated with that photo, either. 😕
  7. You have already stated my suggestion: Activation roll. Call it Knowledge: 14- or whatever, but for anything outside of whatever KS or sciences you may have bought specifically, roll to see if it knows about it. If it does, make a note of that.
  8. I don't want to be "that guy," but I do want it noted: There are a lot of suggestions on what to leave out, what to work up to, etc, I have taught this game to a group of kids, spendibg about 3 sessions (including character generation), all of whom can play without problems or confusion, and I have done none of those things. We started out tracking END, STUN, BODY, figuring range modifiers, assessing skill roll penalties and bonuses, countong damage, figuring DEF (to include Resistan vs non), etc. I didnt leave anything out, and they got it quickly, the same way we d
  9. Does-- No; seriously-- Why does the big robot have a beard, a turtleneck, and watchcap? Is it cold? Disguised as a longshoreman?
  10. Going offline for a few days to decompress and catch up on actual stuff. I wanted to leave you with this: Darth Tanyan. That is all.
  11. If it rains enough on a flatland, water on the ground can cover hundreds of acres.
  12. I'm currently doing just that (on corona hiatus): playing HERO with a bunch of beginners. As Christougher said, it'a easy to _play_. If you just want to teach them how to play, you cant go wrong. If you want them to learn the entire system and how to use to great things whole cloth or run adventures themselves, Well, thats another thing entirely.
