  • Biography
    I have been interested in Role Playing Games since I was first introduced to them in 1977 at the ripe old age of twelve. I started with the original boxed set of D&D + Chainmail and Traveller. In the early eighties (1981 I think) the gaming group I was in discovered Champions. I continued to play until the late eighties or early nineties. Then, real life reared its ugly head. As my friends and I grew older and up, we no longer had as much time to devote to gaming and all of the friends that I gamed with eventually moved away. So, I dropped out of role playing for many years. My interest was renewed when I discovered MMORPGs and specifically Star Wars: The Old Republic. I thought it would make a great setting and wanted to use Champions. I rediscovered Champions, or actually the HERO System, and along with my interest in writing, my love for RPG's (HERO System especially) was rekindled.

  1. Nah, it's up there for the best reason: Why does a bear climb (on) a bird feeder? Because it's there!
  2. I wasn't aware of any case law that covered game mechanics. Thanks. Can you point me to any of the cases? I'd love to read the decisions.
  3. Wow, so if I completely rewrite the Game of Thrones books in my own words and call it my own work, I would be safe from any legal challenge?
  4. Update: I stayed home from work yesterday (4/1). I was feeling pretty bad and running a fever of 100°F. But by the late afternoon it had dropped just about 99°F and was normal by that evening. I feel pretty good, now. I just had one bad day and even it wasn't too bad (I've had worse with just the Flu). So, all things considered it wasn't too bad. Now I just need to figure out how many points of Life Support I now have...
  5. Thanks for setting me straight. I love to learn new things.
  6. *cough* Glorfindel *cough* That guy can't get any love from anyone. Bakshi replaced him with Legolas in the War of the Ring back in the 70's and now Jackson with Arwen. I also didn't like the fact that the movie depicted her as causing the deluge that swept away the Ringwraiths instead of Elrond and Gandalf. It made her seem way more powerful that she was (in the "books"). I think it was this exactly. Eowyn was certainly the strong female character of the "books". Unfortunately, she doesn't really appear until the second "book". I suspect the thought was they felt th
  7. I think Rocket described my body perfectly in the same movie. "[I] look like melted ice cream." Well the side effects are starting to kick in. A couple of hours ago I started feeling feverish and right after I got pretty severe chills, although they're getting better. The fatigue is kicking in, too. My arm's sore (no worse than the first one, though). I'd give anything to not be here at work. I'm going to ask my boss if I can go home (he's really cool about things like that). But I also had a doctor's appointment (my regular checkup) today, too. I'm waiting to hear back from them t
  8. My arm hasn't fallen off, no extra heads and no superpowers. Rats! I was really hoping for superpowers. Of course, I'd probably get something like telepathically talking to fish... Although, now that I think about it, if that ability came with a body like Jason Mamoa I could go for it. Right now, I look like Thor........in Avengers Endgame.
  9. Me, too. GDW did it way (way, way) back in the day with their (now Classic) Traveller double adventures. I thought it was cool.
  10. Got my 2nd Moderna shot at 2:00pm today. We'll have to see if tomorrow my arm falls off, I grow two more heads or I get superpowers...
  11. That's one heck of a agglutinative language! Do you know from which Original Nation language it comes? Just curious...I studied Linguistics for three years...for fun (yeah, I'm weird--but you probably already knew that ).

    Maneuvers

    This bit has me confused. So, I make an Offensive Haymaker "representing taking extra time to aim precisely" and incur a -5 OCV penalty...making it harder to hit? It seems to me taking extra time to aim should make it easier to hit. Just sayin'...
  13. I got my first one last Saturday (3/6). Just a sore arm so far. Scheduled for 2nd one on 3/30. Been sweating blood (figuratively) for weeks waiting for my turn because of my co-morbidities. I'll be glad when I get the second jab. It will be a load off my mind.
