  2. August 20, 1920 when WWJ first went on the air, becoming the first radio station in the world to broadcast regularly scheduled daily programs. Then owned and operated by The Detroit News, the station began broadcasting under experimental license with the call letters 8MK, later changing to WBL and finally to WWJ. The first broadcast went on the air at 8:15 p.m. in a makeshift “radio phone room” on the second floor of the Detroit News Building. Using a borrowed phonograph from the Edison Shop, Howard Trumbo, manager of the shop, placed a record on a turntable and waited for the signal to spin i
  3. Repost: in memory of Tom Tyler, aka Vincent Markowski, of Hamtramck, Michigan, whose birthday was today, 1903. His family was Lithuanian. One of his film roles was the World's Mightiest Mortal, Captain Marvel, widely regarded as one of the finest serials ever produced. He also starred as The Phantom, and appeared in more than 150 movies.

Wong Ping was something of a local legend, known as "the bronze foot", and was fond of demonstrating his kung-fu in public. Because of this he came to the attention of Sing Lung*. One day Sing Lung came down from the mountain and had an opportunity to observe Wong Ping's kung-fu. He was impresse
  9. Re: post #493- snow leopards are so reclusive that they were once thought to be shape-shifters. Good one, GoldenAge.
  10. Storn, I'm a big Captain America fan- thanks for the sketch. I'm also particularly fond of your dragon lady, fluid, and the saurian mane is an unusual touch. I also like the monk's back hand block and the bemused look on his assailant's face.
  11. I'm thinking about building an Aaron Allston (RIP) Blood character, using the second person from the left. What would you name him? Pic by Adam Warren.
  12. Yay! How about a Mongol wrestler? Mongols figure heavily in sumo championships, and won Olympic gold medals in Judo and Boxing, 2008.
  13. Do you crave danger excitement? Violence? Adventure? Does treachery mystery interest you? Would you like to meet questionable intriguing people? Does hunting down seeking the dog who killed your master to help others strike you as a fulfilling endeavor? Then join The Sons of the Dragon. Being a Son of the Dragon means working with people you can't trust care about and a mission that endangers challenges you. http://www.ucon-gaming.org/ Event (#3393) https://www.ucon-gam...s of the dragon ------------------------------------------------------------ Title: Feng Shui Champions: Sons of
  14. Sons of the Dragon Convention Game Review Sons of the Dragon is a classic martial arts story about students avenging the mysterious murder of their master. The game started with it being the New Year and multiple students from the school were celebrating. Their festivities were cut short when a messenger wearing all white showed up with a message that their teacher had died sometime late during the night. Xai Long, the character I was playing, refused to believe that the master has just died from natural cause as did several of the other students. With some top notch detective work we figu

  16. Re: Fighting Game Hero OK, help me. I don't play video games, and I suspect there may be a spelling issue. What is Tencalaber, with the correct spelling?

  21. Re: to hex or not to hex I ran a Dark Champions convention game set in August 2003, Detroit, during the international power failure. I made a hex map of St Anne's church. My players decided to check out the Detroit Institute of Arts- no power meant prime time for a big robbery, yes? I erased part of each church pew, transforming them into glass display cases. Cathedral chapels became art museum galleries. My players were none the wiser.
