    Mothership - Titan

    Finn nods his head in understanding. "I appreciate that - I would like to see if I can help the good doctor in some way, if only to convey messages to her loved ones. If I can have access to Dr. Coombs and their lab, that would be extremely helpful. Also, please let me know if you learn anything...

    Tell us about something good that you got recently

    Yes, I noticed this a while ago when I saw two items on the bestseller list that were in opposite order of how they were listed on the $5 or Under list. Since the cheaper one was ranked higher on the latter list, I realized that the only thing that could explain this, other than an error, was if...

    Tell us about something good that you got recently

    I was thinking it might be about as big as the rulebook if we're using adventures the size of the ones included, but on second thought, it might be bigger than that. The rules are awfully compact...just how I like 'em. I basically finished reading the book today without going through all the...

    Tell us about something good that you got recently

    Question about Songling, @BedrockBrendan... any plans to put out more adventures? The four in the rulebook are terrific, and this is a game that I think works particularly well with published adventures (since it leans away from sandbox play). Especially the notion of ten-and-done adventures...

    Yoon Suin is a personal favorite. So, so good. If you like these, make sure you check out Hill Cantons/Marlinko material from Hydra, as well as Operation Unfathomable.

    Fantasy Flight Games in Trouble

    I can totally understand the decision to shelve the interactive division, but the other stuff is a mystery to me at this point.

    [5e] sneak attack weapon limitations

    I'm going to overthink this. There are several ways of looking at this question: What are the rules? The answer is pretty clear: light or finesse weapons only. What is realistic? Honestly, I think if you have a chance to wind up a good hit with a war hammer on an unsuspecting target, that...

    Let's read GURPS Alpha Centauri

    Definite Mary Sues for game developers (video and RPG). Don't forget Steve Jackson Games was raided by the Secret Service because of suspicions raised by their cyberspace supplement. This was back in the days when hacker culture was Utopian and libertarian instead of a mix of corporate and...

    Old-School Essentials: Stonehell

    The blaze is starting to build in intensity, as is the smoke. The party backtracks to the nearest explored junction. They return through the room of dark figures on the walls and pass to the left in the corner of the room. A hallway immediately branches right. Obvious exits: Back to the...

    Fantasy Flight Games in Trouble

    Did they pull the license? I’d be surprised if they did. As far as I know FF is keeping the license for minis and board games...otherwise that would be much bigger news. And why would Disney just pull the RPG license? I suspect it represents a rounding error on the fees. What seems more likely...

    Mothership - Titan

    OOC: I'll write some of what Finn would say here, just to set the tone and also recap anything @Smith might have missed. Forgive me if I get any details wrong; I should have made consolidated notes. "Ladies and gentlemen, as I'm sure you know, my name is Finn Shah, and I was sent here at the...

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    Gotcha. Since I've had it around my whole life, I don't remember how it tasted back then. FWIW Entenmann's still makes terrible doughnuts, but I feel like they have upped their game with cakes. Krispy Kreme was a much more recent addition to the northeast, arriving in the early aughts IIRC.

    Old-School Essentials: Stonehell

    Bellitus shakes her head at the sight of the twin punctures. "Miss Tessa, you'll probably be feeling that right quick with your small size. I don't know anything about this type of snake, so can't say exactly how long that will be or how bad it gets. Are any of you folks wise in the art of healing?"

    Mothership - Titan

    OOC: Thought of something... "Lassiter, one thing I didn't tell the scientists yet, and intend to keep in-house for now...Dr. Contos can also communicate with us in the lab the same way she spoke to me at the weather station. I want to get in there later and ask her some more questions and also...

    Mothership - Titan

    OOC: I'm fine with the skip although I'm not sure if I left out anything big from what I've told Lassiter. Probably not, but it just felt like so much happened.

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    As an East Coaster, I am always surprised when I hear of people pining for a Dunkin Donuts in an unserved area. Maybe they just ship the crappy ones my way, but the actual dough is dry and papery and (this is something I really don't say often about anything) the fillings are overly sweet...

    Our Moderating Style and Feedback

    Sounds pretty sweet. I don't suppose you could get into the club by strapping an outboard on a rowboat? "Yeah, the SS Putt-Putt is going to be under repair for, oh, a few more decades." The way you connect these two incidents makes me think that your dad tried something really unwise in your...
