  1. Elvis would agree. Oh, it finally happened - a coworker asked 'who's Elvis?' The Auld Grump
  2. The new OPR rules are... pretty good. The magic/psycher/caster option is a lot more viable - you now have spell tokens which are needed to power casting. A level 2 spell needs two tokens - but more can be spent to make the needed die roll lower. The other player can spend tokens to make casting harder. And tokens not spent can be saved for a later turn, up to six tokens. Fearless has a major change - instead of a +1 to quality checks for morale, it is now a 4+ reroll of a failed roll. Cover is now a bonus to the Defense roll, not a penalty to the to hit roll. Stealth now only works at longer ranges. Impact hits now only hit on a 2+. Poison is no longer insanely powerful. Unit cohesion is now nine inches, rather than six. A few other changes, but those are the ones that I am remembering off hand. The Auld Grump
  3. Artisan Guild has Great Goblins coming for October - https://youtu.be/1hbJusfxxQM Be warned, naked female hobble-gobble. Rather like them, might use them for orogs. The Auld Grump
  4. I remember a room in the first dungeon level of the original Might & Magic that I would abuse for XP - over, and over, and over, and.... The Auld Grump
  5. Artisan Guild has another possible bunch of hobblegobbles - The Great Goblins. Sort of halfway between hobgoblins and bugbears. Be warned, a nekkid female hobblegobble bard is in the mix. The Auld Grump
  6. Grrr.... Missed a Kickstarter that we meant to back - Empryan Titans, which would go well with the Reaper Bones Greek set. The Auld Grump
  7. Our doggo friends are taken from us all too soon. In my head, Sammy is still a puppy, big ears and paws, snuggling in a nest made from our shoes. But he is a grown dog now. Halfway through his life. Khatt and Thomathy are also getting old, Megan has had them in her life for longer than me - and Khatt was directly responsible for Megan deciding to keep me around. I am his person. The Auld Grump, she couldn't disappoint Khatt, now could she?
  8. Wow, I feel old. There is a new version of Wizardry: Proving Ground of the Mad Overlord coming out... Megan had no idea what I was talking about - the game is older than she is. I played that game through on the Apple ][. The Auld Grump - creeping coins.... Ye gads,has it really been more than a year since Ub3r_N3rd graced these halls? The Auld Grump
  9. I was singing Come Monday. The Auld Grump
  10. One Page Rules 3.0 is coming out this month The Auld Grump
  11. One Page Rules is again having a 70% off code with this month's Patreon, in celebration of the 3rd edition of their rules. No longer a nearly monthly occurence, it is a pretty snazzy discount. This month is Human Empire for Fantasy, Dwarf Guilds for Grimdark Future. The Auld Grump
  12. The good news is that you are getting a half hour break. The bad news is that after that, the captain wants to go watersking. The Auld Grump
  13. This is why Megan has instituted Pot Roast Sunday - to ensure that when Brigid is college age, she still comes to visit at least one night a week. A tradition well worth keeping. The Auld Grump
  14. They put the entire series on YouTube. The Auld Grump
  15. Any guesses on upcoming advances? We already have the autofeed for resin. So I am guessing autoleveling and simplified FEP replacement are likely refinements for the next two years. In that order. The Auld Grump
  16. Most likely the city and the film crew each assumed that the other would notify the residents. In general the wording of the contracts puts the responsibility on the municipality - the production company simply does not have that information. I have not seen it with TV series - but there have been a few movies filmed in cities were I have lived, in the cases of Portland, Maine both the Public Works Department and the Police Department sent notices - The Department of Redundancy Agency. The Auld Grump
  17. We went to a concert in the park tonight. Grump made us all peanut butter sandwiches, two peanut butter and strawberry preserve sandwiches each for BD and me, two peanut butter and hot pepper jelly sandwiches for him. Brigid and me chowed down, then Grump went to grab his sammiches. Grump: Where's my peanut butter and hot pepper jelly sandwiches? BD: Munch, munch, munch! Munch, munch, munch! She inherited his vulcanized tastebuds! I pulled a Grump! I forgot to log back in after he borrowed my Fire.
  18. Until seeing the video, I had never heard of Bendy and the Ink Machine. The Auld Grump
  19. Dunno, could be Vermont... The Auld Grump - who suddenly wants to see Red Green again.
  20. This.... https://youtu.be/piry_2wpdi8 The Auld Grump - What's Behind the Curtain?
  21. Over to her mum's house, Megan has a Barbie in a Star Fleet uniform. The Auld Grump
  22. Robert Nix - The Bond Villain - https://youtu.be/SZ5vYfHWRuU The Auld Grump
  23. You may need to update your printer's firmware - we updated ours not all that long ago. Let me check. Looks like it should have shipped with the most recent firmware.

  24. In my head I have named those horses Norwegian Tractor Ponies. The music - https://youtu.be/_u7t3P1nhqw The Auld Grump
