  1. I'm old enough that I bought the entire run of that magazine as they came out in the local comic shop.
  2. How about a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you? Why am I the only one who has that dream?
  3. Wife and I saw it Tuesday. We both LOVED it. In my mind, it is the best Tarzan movie ever made. Sure, it takes liberties with some of the "canon", but is well-written, well-acted, and very fun and exciting. And SLJ is at his best.
  4. We usually visualize it by taking the actual dice rolled, and placing them in the hexes, largest-to-smallest, from the target hex out. This also helps to visualize the area covered by the explosion.
  5. Does whoever put this up on Scribd have permission from the copyright holders?
  6. The heroes will cancel her in less than a season...
  7. If you don't mind print-and-play cardboard mini's, here are all you could ever want, in EVERY genre. For FREE!!!: http://www.seven-wonders.co.uk/paperfriendsindex.html
  8. Thanks for the PDF. I think I had that at some point on another laptop, and didn't know where to find it again. It will at least give me some ideas where to start with the builds. I'm trying to write-up a TOS-era Miranda, a RomBOP, a D-7, and a few others. I've got the TOS-era HERO Trek PDF. If you have other stuff, I'd love to see what you have. THANKS!
  9. As opposed to 90% of TV that panders to men? Sounds kind of sexist to me.
  10. I'm talking about regular Star Hero-style vehicle writeups- STR, DEX, BOD, SPD, equipment builds, etc. I want to use Hero, not some other game.
  11. Does anyone have any writeups of Star Trek ships? I'm starting a Trek HERO one of these days, and I'd rather not have to start off totally from scratch. I've got the Trek HERO pdfs, but they don't have much in the way of ships.
  12. Can a 54-year old man squee? Oh, heck... SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. The fans, their faces wet... Leonard, boldly going...
  14. Here's how I usually handle items (magical and non-magical)- All characters get to start with a logical set of armor, and any normal weapons they have Skills for. Also clothes and basic adventuring gear. If the player wants to have a magic item for his character at the beginning, they pay for it from their starting Character Points.This means they have less points for skills, characteristics, etc. If they acquire magic items during play, they can keep it, without paying points for it.
  15. If you like that shot, look at the entire thread here on the TrekBBS... http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=166732
  16. I actually was responding to Tasha's remark about a TOS-era Miranda. Though I've always liked Drexler's NX-refit a lot.
  17. My characters don't use cannons, but some of them use machine guns...
