  1. Deadpan argument that Marvel's Radioactive Man predates The Simpsons's by a number of years, likely followed by a Thermian claim that the Radioactive Man comics Bart Simpsons reads have been around since at least the 50s.
  2. UPDATE: won all the buggers for $79. Shipping not included. Just.... No way I was going to let all those hours spent getting them all identified without something to show for it.
  3. That's a game setting I wouldn't mind trying out if I could. Especially the new Pulp Cthulhu variant that's come out. I'm definitely more the type to want action in his RPGs.
  4. UPDATE: He just dunked the whole lot of TSR minis: AD&D, Star Frontiers, Top Secret, Gangbusters, Marvel Superheroes, Indiana Jones; all in one big batch for auction on his FB page (couldn't even give me early dibs on some stuff despite the hours I spent identifying them all for him). Currently I'm high bidder at $77 but I'm spite-bidding at that point and there's still two days to go. If I win, hopefully re-selling the Indy and Marvel stuff helps me recoup.

    Who's on the good team???

    I don't get it, the only time Zangief was ever a bad guy was in the live-action movie and even then he turned face by the end.

    Miniature Scale

    Yeah, I have a handful of Ral Partha minis, they are definitely tiny compared to Reaper's stuff.

    IMO he still needs at least one red "gem" on his helmet to break it up a bit, but that's just me. Otherwise, near-perfection.

    Reading this old blog entry from Matt Colville about playing OD&D for the first time with old schooler Jim Murphy was interesting, apparently many who played the old whitebox... didn't have Chainmail. Thus houserules were born.

    That sucks. I use fumbles but they're usually minor hindrances for the players. NPC foes can suffer harder consequences. I think the worst I did was damage a +1 handaxe after a relentless amount of botches happened with that weapon. The player was cool with it though, he was like "Sweet I get a sidequest to get that fixed!" and I ended up using it as a hook for a sewer crawl I wanted to run.

    Wait you mean you don't have spells backfire with crit fails?

    Remember, he's left-handed. Shield goes on the bare arm, sword goes with the chainmail arm. Don't make the same mistake WOTC did. ;)
  13. I hate that you're probably right because since posting my last post... A Facebook friend threw a whoooooooooooooole lotta TSR miniatures from D&D and their other self-published minis lines for help identifying and while I was identifying I was like... "I sure wouldn't mind all the D&D stuff even the broken ones". And then that same friend posted an auction for some Marvel figurines including some fantasy-worthy Handful Of Heroes and I've been bidding on that too. EDIT: I won the Handful Of Heroes.

    In regards to Hoard/Rise... it's not very well received and from all I hear it's not all that fun. It's just a bunch of places you're ferried around to. A bunch of faction quests, a quick train tour of the sword coast, nothing terribly thematic, unique... Kiel Chenier discussed it as being the opposite of a fun "playset" dungeon/adventure. https://twitter.com/KielChenier/status/1020045103862185984
