  1. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... I just finished The Vondish Ambassador by Lawrence Watt Evans. It's the latest of the Ethshar series - which is now being serialized on line (on a pay-per-chapter basis) before being independently printed. It's a fairly standard Ethshar book which answers some questions left over from The Unwilling Warlord and explains some more about warlocks. If you've been reading Ethshar novels all along, I recommend picking it up. If you haven't read any Ethshar before, you probably won't understand anything that is happening (or at least why any of it matters). Go pick up a copy of The Misenchanted Sword (it's back in print) and see if you like it.

  3. Re: A DC Animated-style HeroMachine Here's Sentry, my current Champions character. The Buckyish quasi-patriotic costume is a deliberate attempt to gain people's sympathy - here's hoping the public never discovers her past as the supervillain Lynx. (the campaign is currently being chronicled in the Live Free or Game thread by the GM)

  7. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From our Shadowrun Game: Troll (holding a piece of cyberware) - "What's this do?" Shaman - "It allows a person to move at the speed of thought" Troll - "That's not really going to help me go faster."

  9. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From the just started Shadowrun campaign that I'm in. The newly formed group is brainstorming ideas on how to retrieve some stolen data when the troll gangbanger's chimes in with this: "I don't think we should do anything illegal." "Just kidding."

  17. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... One of the players in our Firefly campaign had a question about the crew's communicators (which we call radios for some reason), which lead to this exchange: Player 1 - Do we have a secure channel on these things? GM - No, your radios aren't that good. Player 2 - We need to come up with some hand signals. Player 3 - Yeah, because that will work real well over the radio.
