  1. I've had bad bottles of reaper before, but my NMM is good.
  2. I from a post I saw the other day that the big skeletal dragon from bones one is gone forever. Are any others retired?

    Confrontation: Classic

    I want to back this. If Reaper was running it I probably would. Given what they're obligating themselves to produce and the resources I know of they have to do it, I unfortunately have to pass. Maybe if it was better funded.

    I'm still really hesitant to get hardbacks. There was a period in the mid 90's, when I was growing up, where it seemed every hardback I touched fell apart. I think printers were switching tech and hadn't worked out the bugs yet. I should get over it, but watching a a book bought with a huge portion of my money for the year drop half a chapter was distressing.

    Sound Off for CAV II KS!

    I hate you all. Although given that for all four (3 bones, 1 cav) kickstarters I've received my stuff early due to international shipping issues, I suppose it's fair for you guys to get lucky this time.

    GW Announces WH40K 8th edition

    is that available for free, or bootleg-able for free? because there is a difference.
  7. I'm a bit worried about the current heavy gear kickstarter. Last time they had problems due to the drop in the Canadian exchange rate. given that the loonie has (again) been dropping since the second kickstarter ended, they might run into the same problems again, but with less funds to act as buffer Or it could all end well. Who knows?

    Pathfinder 2nd edition coming. Looks like somewhere between a cleanup and an actual update from what's been press-released.

    Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    Palladium's robotech books went on sale, both drivethru and paper. Almost tempted, for childhood nostalgia sake. Pobably not going to, but tempted. Let me look at rifts for a second to remember what the system is like .....Cured. ----- partnership with harmony gold. How? HG have rights to the robotech STORY, but since they're shortly losing rights to the macross images, designs and video, these are either going to be short-lived games or have to re-do all the art. ----- Too bad palladium didn't put out a RRT 2nd edition rules that didn't suck. Might have saved the game. Probably not, but might have.

    Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    Here, have a linky http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=58142.0 Last year, HG went after battletech again. IANAL, but people on the thread say they're losing They still have the rights to robotech (And will into perpetuality) but will be losing the rights to macross, which means that the first chunk of robotech will be in violation of copyright. They could remake it, but everyone hates them, so yeah Since they don't have the macross license anymore, they can't sublet it to Palladium. Not sure how much of what I said is right, but it's what I've put together.

    Kings of War: Vanguard

    Between the picture on the previous page and this, I think it's supposed to be an axe, or maybe just a club with stuff strapped to it like a tetsubo.
  13. I wouldn't mind a couple of minis from other factions mixed in, if it plugs holes in the role-roster. I'm not sure I'll get as many as last time, but I'll get the basic and what looks cool.
  14. I'm in. Not for the utopia stuff, which I think is ugly, but for a couple of the boxes from last kickstarter. I might get in for the next one, nucoal and peace river aren't as fugly as Utopia's dome-head, balloon-shoulder look

    Aversion to returning to 40K?

    Old GW just had horrible pricing across the board. Also no balance or pretense of balance to the armies. in 40k, space marines were tier one, other imperial and chaos were tier two, everyone else got a pat on the head and told it isn't whether you win or lose, but how much effort you put in. New GW has decent prices for a lot of their introductory stuff. The starter boxes are a survivable price-point, and the two-player boxes are actually pretty good for what you get. It's just when you get to the non-basic units (That you need to win) that the prices get back to horrid. Also, tyranids are playable for the first time since 5th, arguably 4th. I've got a friend who is overjoyed, and I'm trying to refurbish my old chaos stuff. I'm not willing to buy too far in, but since I've already got most of what I need it's survivable. As for the players, it can be a mixed bag. They guys with cheesey spam and condescending attitudes are inevitable, but it's never fun to go to a store where they are the entire scene.

    Maybe not bows, but a brace of javelins or shortspears (can you throw those in fifth? IDK) Bows are hard to manufacture, but any place that has wood can supply javelins. Baring that, slings. Or if you want to go memorable, have them throw jagged chunks of metal worked from the armor of defeated enemies (Think circular saw blades, but crude.) Just be prepared for what happens when somebody tries to catch the death-Frisbee.

    If you're playing caricatures or sociopaths, sure. But we're talking random murder(s), and the kind of random murder that brings cops down on you to boot. Nobody likes school shootings.
  18. get somebody with thin hands. mask off their fingernails. Spray-paint their hand black or a really dark purple. Add spider ring or bracelet. instant drow hand, just add handcuffs. frick knows I've gotten the effect a few times priming minis.

    Had not considered that, and haven't run into it; and given that I've played in a game with octomorphs, that's kinda surprising You're probably right; Maybe I'll try to run an iron kingdoms game (The real D&D 3.5 Iron Kingdoms, not the warmachine-the-RPG iron kingdoms). Or maybe grab the Savage Rifts box from the store - been eyeing it anyway. ----- I can bump the loonie from the game, I just can't exclude him from the start. I think I'll pass on my two favorite stories involving him. His character in a shadowrun game; extremely optimized for summoning spirits. And by optimized, I mean that he threw something like 18 dice before adding edge. But to get there he took advantages and surge mutations that turned him into a furry, and gave him a former porn star background. Then there was the time the team needed a distraction to get to the professor's office. Leave it to me, says he. He then grabs a couple students, drags them into an alley, slap-patches them with a combat-drug cocktail that will kill them, arms them, and pushes them out of the alley. Then acts surprised when we all just stare at him open-mouthed.
  20. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/i-hit-it-with-my-axe?page=2 ----- To me it sounds like GM is hoping to make the best game world evar, and keeps upgrading to newer, shinier features. When you call him a new GM, is he new to GMing, or just new to you? Because this sounds like my first time GMing in my early 20s
  21. probably this. Or maybe use a couple strip styrene and sequins to make a missile launcher. Or maybe both and magnetize them modular.
  22. I just ordered a vanquisher; I'm planning to cut the guns off the right arm and convert a couple battletech Atlas to Atlas II. Which will leave me with a dismembered Rach bulletspammer. Any suggestions on what I should do with it?

    lets just say that Eclipse Phase is a game where body dismorphia is the norm, not an exception. Uplifted (Sapient) pig with psionic powers in a robotic octopus body. Completely viable at chargen, if expensive in points. Not being in the body you were born with is normal.
  24. yeah, but there's going to be nothing to connect the tubes to - he'll be missing his arm to (and possibly past) the elbow

    I was planning to run a session zero anyway; but yeah, I take your point about disallowing classes. I guess this universe has sane male furies. And that's why I ran it by (mostly) sane censors here Still thinking about keeping the TG limit in place though; not asking anyone to out themselves, just giving them the option, and keeping it PG-13, which is fairly important in an open-area store with parents coming through. The store actually has a lot of GMs. Just, you know, none running stuff when I'm off work.
