Question for the 8th of March:

 

If offered one, what superpower would you choose and why?

 

 

Financial freedom.  The freedom to not have to work or worry about money.

 

Sure, I could choose immortality without aging, but without financial freedom, I'll just end up working for eternity.

Probability manipulation. Need money? 100% probability that you'll find $100. Need to get to the airport real quick? 0% probabilty of accidents. Bad guy threatening you and all you hold dear? 100% of brain aneurysm. 

 

That sort of thing.

 

Alternately, the power to fill/empty things. Bad guy? Fill up his lungs with water. Money? Fill pockets (or bank account) with money. In a hurry? Empty the roads.

The ability to shapeshift and the ability to temporarily shape shift others.

Why? It would be fun.

The power of the Op-Op Devil Fruit from One Piece.

 

I'm mainly after the teleportation and matter manipulation, but the ability to generate electricity and radiation and who knows what else could come in handy.

The power to imbue anyone with decent, honest to goodness common sense, a pleasant peaceful demeanor, with a desire for equality and justice for all. Then I'd target nation, church, and corporate leaders.

 

I'll likely be declared public enemy #1 within 24 hours.

 

[And just like the POV gun from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, women are naturally immune.]

Question the 7th of March:  How many discontinued or out of print games do you still play/want to play?

- Battletech (I love building custom big stompy robots)

- Car Wars (ditto, building monster cars in countless variations)

- Battle Masters

- Star Wars d6 (tons of source material)

 

Yes, not all of them are necessarily out of print, particularly if you consider digital copies, but they aren't mainstream anymore. Back in the 90s, I loved building customized units for wargames. More were built than actually played.

 

My usual problem is not so much finding the rules, it's finding other people to play with.

In the modern world, the ability to manipulate electronic signals would seem pretty useful.  Control the internet and all electronic communication, monetary transfers, and intercept the missile codes.  Why you could even selectively delete celebrity Twitter accounts.

Well, my mind immediately went to “The United States”. Russia’s a little shopworn, and I don’t think I could learn Chinese very quickly. ::P:

 Quantum-kinesis:

 

The ability to telekinetically sense and control sub-atomic particles. It's essentially command over the basic forces of the universe.

 

 I could rearrange lead into gold, start nuclear explosions, walk through walls, fly, learn to read peoples' minds, heal people, all by tweaking the very fabric of reality.

 

Oh, and if you get on my bad side, I can reach into your brain and turn you off like a light switch, in a hundred different ways.  :devil:

Thanks to @Inarah for back stopping me yesterday!  I was (and still am) without power and had to dig myself out.  So I wasn't able to get to a computer until I got to work.

 

Question the 9th-11th of March:  Pick any Reaper mini.  Based upon the name or the sculpt, come up with a story about it. (can be just a couple or sentences or as long as you want.

I will have whatever Q is having.

Omnipotent, not omniscient. We demi-gods are not interested in the thoughts of mere mortals. 

So basically a Q  ?

Why be selective? If you were a Q you could just delete them by the shed load.

 Yes, being a just about fits the bill, but with less hammy acting and even more arbitrary exercise of power.

Gutrags the golem. (A figure I must get hold of and paint for "Frostgrave").

Trader Brown was a bad-tempered and aggressive man. He repeatedly took out his anger on the sacks and bales of goods in his warehouse. Little did he think that, thanks to a passing wizard, a day of awful reckoning was drawing near...

But if you could be a Q... isn't the hammy acting absolutely necessary? Like.. how could you NOT????

      I was at the 2018 Adepticon in Schaumburg, Illinois last month helping out at the Reaper Paint & Take tables.
       
      I took pictures of the stupendous international Crystal Brush competition entries and other minis and terrain with an eye towards the interests of the people on this forum. Also some fun cosplay and miscellaneous interest.
       
      I can't guarantee my photographs are great. I was using two cameras with very different capabilities and strengths and I am not a professional photographer. Some of the pictures use a very harsh flash because it allowed for super sharp enlargements of detail, something I thought painters here would be interested in.
       
      I didn't know which entries would win the Crystal Brush competition, and as it turns out I missed the third-place winner. I have got pictures of the first and second place winners.
       
      So to begin with, here is this year's first place entry, "Apocalypse", a diorama by Michal Pisarski.
       
       
       
      And this is the second place winner, "The Name of the Wind", a diorama by Sergio Calvo. My pictures of this are not so good, I'm afraid.

      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
