    Free League announces official Alien RPG

    I do think it would be good if they added a few more baddies. That is a bit of a downside, other than the Predators which are not covered (or at least not yet), it does make it a bit of a one trick pony as far as dangerous critters goes since all we ever really see are the Aliens. Even just...

    Free League announces official Alien RPG

    I think it is capable of more than one shots, it wouldn't be my choice for a long term sci-fi campaign, but it could definitely do a multi-session short campaign or be a good intermittent campaign. Besides Aliens I think it would work quite well for something like Dangerous Catch meets 2001...

    Free League announces official Alien RPG

    I think this is true, but you run into similar issues with other games as well. Thinking Call of Cthulhu, players are probably expecting to run into some tentacled horrors. Actually thinking about what works in CoC is probably worth considering, as there is a fair bit of similarity. Like CoC...

    Of Mythras, Runequest, Glorantha, Edition wars, and where to start???

    You use different moves when fighting half a dozen people than when you are fighting just one. :grin:

    Of Mythras, Runequest, Glorantha, Edition wars, and where to start???

    It makes sense from a narrative sense as well avoiding the whole I aim for his his head (rolls poorly), er I trim his finger nails. :sad: Instead just roll the dice (rolls very well) my blade slices through the air and his head leaves his body in a shower of blood! :dice: My major issue with it...

    Of Mythras, Runequest, Glorantha, Edition wars, and where to start???

    A wonderful thing with all of the RQ / BRP games is their relatively high compatibility with each other. After 40 years of tinkering, 7 editions of RQ, 7 editions of CoC and numerous other incarnations including the products of other game companies the core system is still largely intact. The...

    Tell us about something good that you got recently

    It actually beat the notice that they had started shipping by a day, so it was a bit of a surprise walking out to head to the grocery store and finding a large package on the porch. This is something I almost passed on as initially I had little interest in the idea of random generation of an...

    Those high priced books on Amazon

    I've been told that happens too. I had heard the money laundering thing before, but thought it interesting to see in print. The buying their own overpriced, non-existent product with stolen credit cards angle was a new one on me, but that also seems plausible. I mean what a great defense...

    I understand the point some are making, but see a huge difference in the implementation here vs other places. For the most part the mods here are accepting of disagreement. If a snarky comment is made by a mod and a snarky comment is returned its all good. Many places that would unload a whole...

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    Add me to the list of those who never got Krispy Kreme. An open box of donuts is a weakness of mine, but I find it fairly easy to resist theirs. I'd actually prefer commercial packaged donuts and they can be pretty awful. We have a good donut place in town run by an Asian couple, cash only like...

    Yeah spending anytime at all around people with actually expensive hobbies helps a lot. I got thousands probably 10's of thousands sunk into my various hobbies over my lifetime. There are hobbies where that gets spent in a weekend. You want to talk expensive hobbies, talk to the guys who...

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    Yep I'm happy with it, my only negative comment is their marketing that claims it is easier to use than a French press. That makes me think of those commercials where they have a whiz bang onion slicer and they show how hard a regular knife is to use by having some guy go full Samurai with a...

    Selfies and amateur porn have resulted in a huge variety of cell phone holders. Have a look I'm sure there is something that would work for you. Just remember to wear pants when you are painting and the video is running. :shock:

    As I've never used the report button on a forum, when used does it provide the reporter the ability to include a message with their issue or is it just a red flag activation to attract a mods attention to an issue?

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    So revisiting. my revisiting I went ahead and ordered an Aeropress and stainless steel screen (replaces the disposable paper filters). On taste quality it is good, I approve. It does have a distinctive smoother flavor different from other coffee making methods I've used (and I think at this...

    What kind of pub do you see?

    I see more of a Star Trek TOS bar. Obviously Scotty represents the mods, trying to keep things cool and peaceful, but one of these days some drunk Klingon is going to insult the Enterprise and that's it, free for all. :hehe:

    What are you listening to?

    Listing to Faith No More's The Real Thing Album is bringing me back to 1990 and my first car. I had a 50w Kenwood tape deck with a pair of Pioneer 6x9s on the back shelf and a set of 6" Pioneers up front. Zombie Eaters worked those speakers hard particularly when the base kicks in at the 2...

    I missed that this is an Osprey book. Kind of a departure for them, but if they manage to keep their usual quality, then very interesting. I have a stack of their military and historical books. At $17 I may just grab it anyway, noce to see a hard copy game under $20. Looking forward to a more...
