  1. Here is my take on a 5red Neanderthal Player Character Package Deal. It costs -19 Points. Neanderthals were apex predators. They were less prone to dental cavities than modern man, but due to low population, more likely to have birth defects. Their technology was sophisticated, including Mediterranean seafaring. CHARACTERISTICS STR 13; more robust and stocky build than modern humans. 10 DEX 10 CON 11 BODY 8 INT; brain case size within modern human range. More brain tissue was devoted to bodily maintenance and control, and, consequently, the cognitive areas of the brain were proportionally smaller than in modern humans. 10 EGO 10 PRE 8 COM 3 PD 2 ED 2 SPD 5 REC 20 END 23 STUN Every Neanderthal SKILLS: Climbing, Concealment, Native Language (No Literacy), Paramedics, One PS at 11- (job, usually Hunter/Gatherer), Shadowing, Stealth. POWERS COST END Rudimentary Night Vision, +1 vs. Darkness Modifiers, 1 much larger occipital lobe Rudimentary Life Support, Safe Environment, 1 Cold Environments, hyperarctic physique +1" (+2m) Running, higher proportion of fast-twitch muscle fibers 2 and faster muscle contraction DISADVANTAGES Distinctive Features: Neanderthal; stocky, sloping forehead, -10 large eyes, nose, and jaw, reduced chin, short arms and legs, Concealable Physical Limitation: -1 Scent PER: smaller olfactory bulb -5 Physical Limitation: x2 Long Term Endurance cost for -5 Running; longer heel bones Social Limitation: No Everyman Social Skills, no Literacy -5
  2. Thank you, Ninja-Bear. I wanted to make such a reply, and refrained because I suspect the comment was a joke.
  3. Gold! https://www.msn.com/en-US/sports/olympics/anastasija-zolotic-becomes-first-american-woman-to-win-olympic-gold-in-taekwondo/ar-AAMxGuc
  4. See my winking emoji above. I knew what you meant, Grasshopper. - with respect, your lowly cricket friend
  5. That would be sweet. I suspect it would have the potential to sell better than setting books, among others. Are Kato, Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie, Sha Wujing, and the dragon prince Martial Arts Companions? 😉
  6. How would you build the Roman weapon called a pilum? It was a spear with a soft iron shank. When thrown the shank would bend on impact making it impossible for the enemy to throw it back with any degree of accuracy without straightening the shank first which required the use of a black smith. While the idea was not to kill the enemy soldier, it was mainly to strip them of their shields and make them more vulnerable during close quarters fighting. For, whenever a pilum hit an enemy shield it wold penetrate it and bend, making it pretty much impossible for the enemy to pull it out and if the Roman soldier was lucky he could pin two of their shields together thus crippling both men unless they lost their shields and thus their protection.
  7. World War Zero This conflict, the Seven Years' War, was known by many names. In the United States, the local theater of combat is known as the French and Indian War. The Seven Years' War was a world war fought between 1754 and 1763. It involved every European great power of the time except the Ottoman Empire, spanning four continents, and affected the Americas, Europe, India, the Philippines, and West Africa. The Death of General Wolfe is a 1770 painting by Anglo-American artist Benjamin West, commemorating the 1759 Battle of Quebec, where General James Wolfe died at the moment of victory.

  9. Donald Duck first appeared [this day] in the 1934 cartoon The Wise Little Hen which was part of the Silly Symphonies series of theatrical cartoon shorts. The film's release date of June 9 is officially recognized by the Walt Disney Company as Donald's birthday despite a couple in-universe contradictions. Donald's appearance in the cartoon, as created by animator Dick Lundy, is similar to his modern look — the feather and beak colors are the same, as is the blue sailor shirt and hat — but his features are more elongated, his body plumper, and his feet smaller. Donald's personality is not developed either; in the short, he only fills the role of the unhelpful friend from the original story. -Wikipedia
  10. @Ninja-Bear, custom Manuevers and names are great. If I put together a 5er version of this, I would use the Aaron Allston errata Nerve Strike, which is a Killing Strike that Does No Body (-0).
  11. Challenge: choose and share at least 10 points of Manuevers for Taiho-jutsu (arresting art) (逮捕術), a term for Japanese police martial arts with selected techniques from modern disciplines, such as jujutsu, karate-jutsu, kendo, and judo, and further ideas gained from a study of Western boxing. Weapon Familiarities include short staff or jō, keijojutsu, which is still used by the Japanese riot police (although the staff used is somewhat heftier than that used in jodo), and keibo, a short police baton, in a range of techniques called Keibo-soho, as well as the extending tubular baton (Tokushu Keibo) which was adopted by the Japanese police in 1966.
  12. On this day in 1976, in Paris, two California wines win top honors at a blind wine tasting by the best of France's wine experts. The French were shocked, and the wine world was changed forever.
  13. On this day in 1908, Nicholas Kurti was born. This Hungarian-born British physicist, who loved cooking, advocated applying scientific knowledge to the kitchen and coined the term "molecular gastronomy."
  14. Not all heroes wear capes. On this date in 1842, Danish botanist Emil Christian Hansen was born. He developed new sanitary methods to culture yeast and refused to patent the method, but instead made it available for free to other brewers. Cheers!
  15. 1958- The Battle of Hayes Pond or Maxton Riot was an armed confrontation between members of the Ku Klux Klan and the Lumbee Native Americans at a Klan rally near Maxton, North Carolina, on the night of January 18, 1958. Grand Dragon James W. "Catfish" Cole was the organizer of the Klan rally. Wikipedia Location: Maxton, NC Resulted in: Lumbee victory; Klan ceases activity in area Arrested: 1 Klansman arrested by police https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumbee#/media/File%3ALumbee_Tribe_of_North_Carolina_logo.svg
