  1. That is a shame. What you had put out was some top-quality work, and those ideas you had for future projects all sound great. I particularly like the Doomsday Cross, and will try to develop it for my game, but doubt it will turn out quite as good. (And sympathies and kudos to you for taking care of your mother. Been there myself, and I wish you the best at it.)
  2. Hey, Dean, I'm looking to bring some of your work (Sky-Q and the Dynatron, and maybe later the Green Butterfly) into my new Champions campaign, and it got me wondering Are you in the process of creating any other Shared Origins works? Just curious. (If you're not familiar with any of Dean's past Shared Origins work, particularly if you're running a Champions game, I suggest you check them out. I've had some success with the Dynatron in a past Champions campaign, and anticipate getting similar good use out of Sky-Q in this game.)
  3. I'm thinking it's either Who, Guess Who. or Yes.
  4. Hospital being forced to give dewoming drug to COVID patient. I guess guzzling bleach didn't work. Though I liked seeing this part: "As part of the complaint filed to the judge, Julie Smith signed a full release that relieved West Chester Hospital of any liability related to the ivermectin treatment."
  5. FWIW, I used your version of Muerte in a past Champions campaign, to very good effect. It ended with a heroine flying after a nuke missile launched at Europe.
  6. I saw this today and thought it good enough to share. Source is: 'Freedom Cafe' description is a perfect response to arguments against mask requirements - Upworthy "Welcome to the Freedom Cafe! We trust you to make your own choices if you want to wear a face mask. And, in the same spirit of individual liberty, we allow our staff to make their own choices about the safety procedures they prefer to follow as they prepare and serve your food." "We encourage employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom, but understand that some people may be allergic to certain soaps or may simply prefer not to wash their hands. It is not our place to tell them what to do." "We understand that you may be used to chicken that has been cooked to 165 degrees. We do have to respect that some of our cooks may have seen a meme or a YouTube video saying that 100 degrees is sufficient, and we do not want to encroach on their beliefs." "Some of our cooks may prefer to use the same utensils for multiple ingredients, including ingredients some customers are allergic to. That is a cook's right to do so." "Some servers may wish to touch your food as they serve it. There is no reason that a healthy person with clean hands can't touch your food. We will take their word for it that they are healthy and clean." "Water temperature and detergent are highly personal choices, and we allow our dishwashing team to decide how they'd prefer to wash the silverware you will put in your mouth. "Some of you may get sick, but almost everyone survives food poisoning. We think you'll agree that it's a small price to pay for the sweet freedom of no one ever being told what to do - and especially not for the silly reason of keeping strangers healthy."
  7. I hope you replied: "I just went for a little... boat ride. By the way, how's your mom?" (smile back cheerfully)
  8. Speaking as someone from Michigan, we can only hope. I heard that more astronauts have come from Ohio than from any other state. What is it about Ohio that makes people want to leave the planet?
  9. Donald Trump's toupee. Apparently, it's wanted in four star systems, and has been on the run the past 30 years. NT: Atlantis's armies are attacking the surface world! What's their beef this time?
  10. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but both links appear to be the same.
  11. Decades ago, I told one of my friends that when I died, I wanted my remains scattered by air over Ann Arbor. But I didn't want to be cremated first. "I'll bet that surprises a few people!" I've since instructed my wife and kids not to listen to Uncle Steve about my wishes when I die.
  12. I remember one three-in-one What If where the radioactive spider bit Gwen Stacy, Flash Thompson, and John Jameson rather than Peter Parker. (Three separate stories, not all together.) IIRC, they all ended with each of them dying heroically... and Peter extracting the venom from the dead spider to carry on their legacies. Though my favorite had to be the Assistant Editor's Month What If, with such bits as "What If Reed Richards never invented unstable molecules", "What If Tony Stark had an eating problem rather than a drinking problem", and "What If all the heroes in New York City moved to Toledo, Ohio." Not that any of that would transfer over to the televised series, but a lot of it made me laugh.
  13. Whichever city is home to death tribble. They're afraid there may be more of him lurking about.
  14. I try to use 1 hex = 1m where possible, unless the battleground is too large to do so, in which case I go with 2m hexes. My players can't seem to handle dividing their movement by 2.
  15. Whether sharks, crocodiles, and venomous snakes really will avoid attacking lawyers out of "professional courtesy." RE: cattle prods, I guess we have Phase 2 of that study already lined up.
  16. It's a land war in Asia. (I know, classic blunder, amiright?) NT: Ingenuity, the helicopter on Mars, is about to discover something amazing on it's next flight. What is it? Oops, a minute late. Hmmm... Subtle signs that Michael Hopcroft has had enough of my crap? When he says "I hates manure" like "Mad Dog" Tannen in Back to the Future 3.
  17. Jellyfish Rex, a 50-foot tall gelatinous mass with a stinger big enough to eviscerate a fully-grown man - if humans had existed in the Jurassic age.
  18. He ends up throwing you all the way to Mars because you revealed his (and Batman's) secret identities to Lex Luthor (and everybody else) at a public event.
