  1. You just don't see the wizard off screen whose wand is producing The Dancing Red Dot of Distraction. The Auld Grump
  2. Super Suits can have their own difficulties. The Auld Grump
  3. Not recommended - shooting your mouth off leads to trouble. The Auls Grump
  4. Well, I think so. But Megan also plays Twilight Kin for Kings of War, so can use these for both Pathfinder and KOW. The terrain is pretty sweet, and the troops are very good. The Auld Grump
  5. Once upon a time, in the 1970s, National Geographic had an article about a man studying vampire bats. Contrary to popular imagery, vampire bats don't land on their prey and start nibbling - they land on the ground, and knuckle over, like tiny gorillas - and had never been known to feed on humans. Then, one day when he had a student over, the bat landed, and began to stalk over to the student.... The student, of course, got up and left, because, hey, they were being stalked by a vampire bat! It took some convincing, but he did eventually manage to
  6. Man, that is the wurst model of the Enterprise that I have ever seen..... The Auld Grump
  7. I always forget this thread is here.... Thanks, everyone! The Auld Grump
  8. From the Borderlands Campaign thread in General Fantasy - She leaves out the detail that Wednesday wasn't game night - it was a family dinner, and suddenly Megan and her mum dropped into character, including their voices. There are times Megan is so much like her mum. The Auld Grump - they were talking about something that happened in their characters' past - and, yes, apparently they burned down somebody's barn as part of their characters' shared history.... Poor George had no idea what was going on. I've known them longer than he has.
  9. Game mechanics aren't covered by either patent or copyright. If you name the mechanic, you can trademark the name, but that is avoided by not using that name. It is also why some games use proprietary dice - which can be trademarked and copyrighted. (Other times, they are a gimmick, or just a way to weight probability - Rumbleslam is an example off the latter.) The Auld Grump It probably was never challenged - and I don't think WotC ever tried to defend it, in any case. Sort of like that Alabama law that no one is allowed to use their bac
  10. Back in the Nineties GW sent a letter to stores carrying their miniatures that they should not let those miniatures be used for non-GW games. Rick laughed, crushed the missive up into a little ball, and threw it in the trash. GW, then as now, is a little crazy. The Auld Grump
  11. Strangely, the painted clothed version of Liz on the MMF site is... pretty much as graphic as the topless version. The Auld Grump - she is wearing a wet blouse.
  12. In at 29 Euros - there's still a few hours left on that. That vardo.... *EDIT* I see that Mr. Lovecraft has left the MMF crowdfunding - after being, I think, one of the first to try it out. That... was a pain in the posterior. The Auld Grump
  13. With experimental alchemical engines? At one point, wasn't there mention of a ring of elemental fire to go with the Arcane models? *EDIT* Found a ring of fire on Thingiverse. The Auld Grump
  14. I did notice that you painted it to match the orrery I painted for you a few years ago... for your then Eberron game..... Tell me about it - this is coming up in Iain Lovecraft's latest KS Tale of Two Cities. After decades of wanting a mini for a vardo, for the last few years they have been popping up like mushrooms after a rainstorm - and all better than I could have hoped for. What rotten luck! *EDIT* The birthday mini that most caught my eye - Megan printed both this version and the birthday suit version. A
  15. Holy crap - I think that I just found my favorite mini for a mimic - It's not just loose change that is lost behind the cushions.... The Auld Grump
