  1. I like your discussion. Hugh really pushes it, but I like what everyone came up with. I prefer heroic games, so I'll probably never be able to apply what you're doing with END, except perhaps for Fantasy HERO. I've been trying to come up with a way to balance spells, AP caps, and END for a long time, and haven't come up with anything yet that doesn't seem arbitrary. Your ideas on END usage gives me something to work with. I'd like to have AP caps and END usage that is integrated into the campaign rules in a way similar to what you do with the Pushing cap. This gives me a lot to think about.
  2. Samwell also bragged about being one of the only people to kill a white walker, and then pooped his pants when their minions showed up. As for Bronn, I think his purpose was to show how crappy Winterfell’s security is: “Oh, hello stranger with a loaded crossbow. Come right on in. Jaime and Tyrion are in that room over there getting drunk. Don’t bother knocking.”
  3. Weird. I use PayPal for my purchases, so I can’t help you much. Try going to the “Support” tab and the “Contact Us” item, and check with (most likely) Jason Walters. He may have some idea of what’s wrong.
  4. This will take me some time to digest. I’ll let you know.
  5. Oh right. Sorry, I forgot about that. The D&D and X-Men in the same comment threw me. Sorta like https://images.app.goo.gl/Bh74V99grKLQAiCJA
  6. So, nobody got to kill Cersei?! Didn’t see that coming. Nobody won that bet. My pool was ruined! And I got shouted down for being a misogynist when I said Danaeris went crazy. Everyone saw that coming. . .
  7. . . . and then he gets beheaded for desertion . . .
  8. At this point, I'm hoping that the final episode ends with Bob Newhart waking up and saying, "Wow! I just had the weirdest dream." Experience Points awarded for those of you who get the joke. . . .
  9. There was a point where Cersei actually had her arm entwined through Missandei's arm, which seems like it would have offset any grappling penalty. Perhaps even bonus. All she had to so was clench her arm to her waist and jump. As I said earlier, her last words should have been, "You're coming with me!"
  10. This is good to know. I'm curious how your house-ruled END, if you could tell me more. Or at least lead me to the right forum where you do discuss it.
  11. I suspect this is what Ron Edwards is working on with Champions Now. I may not use his rule set, but I will read his book cover to cover. I like what I’ve read so far, and love his ideas. Because of him I will run all my campaigns, supers and heroes alike, at 5 Active Points = 1 Endurance. It requires the players to deal with the game mechanics narratively as they get too tired to continue fighting. Just this idea alone changed the way I look at the way the mechanics can interact and inspire role playing.
  12. Maybe if they had more Starbucks on the set they wouldn’t be so complacent. Oh, wait . . .
