  1. I watched this, and made Mala see it at the same time. I'm not sure she's forgiven me for it.
  2. No worries. Take the time you need.
  3. Yeah, I know I haven't been posting as much as I like, and I'm sorry for that. I've been struggling with some (hopefully) short-term depression. I hope this will improve soon but with the first anniversary of my sister's death coming up on the 11th of this month, I can't promise that. I hope to be completely out of this by the end of January, however. Thank you for your patience. I know this isn't easy to deal with.
  4. Mala is interested and wants me to reserve a spot for her, but has a baby in on(!) her right now.
  5. 5e, according to the title. Also interested.
  6. weight question

    I have very mixed feelings. One one hand, it's good to see countries speaking out against glamorizing unnaturally thin women, but BMI is a pretty flawed way of determining whether someone is a healthy weight. Also, there are women who are naturally very thin, who may have to do unhealthy things to get up to an 18 BMI. Steps like this legislation are going to be necessary for change to happen, but they are far from perfect. Though the line about the models having to fit into the dresses is bullshit. It's designers that want to create clothing for one body type instead of a diversity of types. I'd rather see laws that require designers to showcase clothing that would fit a range of builds and types of bodies.
  7. Game Proposal: The Genesic Age

    Long, in your last post, you mention "Miss Collins" will handle the raptors. Did you mean my character, Walker?
  8. I don't know of a way. We used to be able to block individual threads but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Unless Chosen knows a work-around, I don't think there is a way.
  9. Star Wars: d6 or d20?

    I told Noir I preferred d20 in chat, but I'll restate that here. Honestly, I think I'd rather do SW in M&M. I know it doesn't have the "flavor" of the Force built in but that should be part of the setting and immersion of the game, not inherent to the system.
  10. Honestly, they're myth because of Order 66. They're dead and gone, so they're legends. We never got a full picture, either. Sure people remember that they were around, but they were already larger-than-life myths, and I'm sure that the Empire suppressed discussion and rewrote history. Here's another way to think about it. Who does the audience hear talk about the Jedi (this is all based on my numerous viewings from many years ago) in any detail? Luke was clueless because his aunt and uncle wanted him that way. He was told nothing about the Jedi and seems pretty isolated on Tantoonie. Han knew about them, but he'd have been 5 (ish?) when Order 66 happened, and we don't know what his status was at that time. His was clearly a skeptic, and obviously hadn't bothered to learn more. Leia knew less than Luke, at least personally. Obi Wan and Yoda talk about the Jedi, but they censor what they tell Luke pretty hard. tl;dr: We only see the universe's perception of the Jedi through limited points of view, many of whom had agendas.
  11. POLL# 2 A Further Refinement

    Okay, here's my "other" explanation under Superheros. To be inclusive, the game somehow has to support a wide variety of interests and character types. Street level is fine, but big stories are usually beyond its scale. Four color is fine, but it blocks some of the more interesting gray areas you can have with people who like to put on uniforms and take the law into their own hands. I think if we go superhero, we need a game that can support all the possible heroes out there.
  12. Thirteen

    Some of you have heard Mala and I talking about Thirteen, our serial novel, for a while now. Some of you were in chat when I started screaming "IT'S DONE! THE *#&@*#$ IS FINALLY DONE!" We've been posting it on our site, Fifth Column Publishing, which Matt has so kindly helped us with. We hope to draw more traffic to RPG post by providing a "Come game with the authors!" type link. Go here to see the posts: http://fifthcolumnpublishing.com/about/thirteen/ Click here to start with Chapter 1 - Nothing Personal. Feel free to make logins at the site and leave comments - we'd love to hear from you! ETA: If you have a Facebook account, and you'd like to get updates directly, you can like Thirteen's Facebook Page.
  13. POLL# 1 What are people intrested in?

    We have a different group now than we used to have. I'm not that surprised; people have been asking for both of the leaders (as of my vote).
  14. Anyone is welcome to watch.
