The first time I saw MtG, I watched two people who owned the comic store thinking of purchasing the game, play it.
At the end of this, there was a discussion of their sales model. “Ah,” I said. “The old baseball card model.”
Afterwards, I was asked my own opinion. I believe I said something...
Current corporate thinking perceives ‘goodwill’ as something they can manufacture, as opposed to an organic quality that exists outside their power to control. So I would argue the board does not believe in the same things we, as drones, believe in.
Three Thousand Years of Longing; on Amazon Prime.
It’s a visually stunning movie that might perplex modern audiences.
It is however a pretty standard 1001 Nights-style storytelling film, the magical stuff is intriguing.
I always thought your character’s moral or ethical core should have been solely the result of your choices in play, rather than said sports team. It was a big part of why I gave up playing D&D in the 1980s.
I watched Ilya Muromets this evening.
It was a great looking, very Soviet-era film that has a huge cast.
While some elements have REALLY, REALLY, REALLY NOT AGED WELL! , overall it as a pretty good folk tale.
If you can look past the brick-to-the-face racism concerning Mongols/Tartars, and the obvious Soviet-era propaganda, it's a pretty good tale.
Even a three-headed, fire-breathing dragon (that uses an actual WWII-era Soviet flamethrower) in the final act!
In real life, which I normally avoid talking about here, I did come within a foot of a Cassowary in the aftermath of a cyclone, near a beach in Far-North Queensland. It was a strangely magical experience.
But I was prepared to be disemboweled if the encounter went poorly.
When I first read the PF 2.0 rules, it dumbfounded me they did not already do this.
The RAW make it pretty clear the '10 as a base' nonsense is un-necessary, included like some sort of legacy code they were too lazy to write out with their new version.
I will say, making the 'change' from calling something a 'ten' to 'zero' - which was its real value anyway - is blowing some players' minds.
Good thing Space Opera is out of print, or they could be criminally liable for blowing up readers minds!
