  1. All kinds(sorry, it's true), but I lean more towards Reaper's. Picts, Gaels, or Scots?
  2. The only thing remotely resembling food on my desk right now is a can of Diet Coke. Axe or sword?
  3. Options are nice, but one can get carried away. I remember the old days of running a game for my younger cousins, and the PCs they would try to put over on me. "Can I be a Demon Lord?" "No." 'Can I be a Storm Giant?" "No." "Can I be a vampire?" "No." "Can I be a demigod?" "No."
  4. Brule the Pict from the Kull stories by Robert E. Howard.
  5. I don't understand the mentality of a person who, in a temporary situation, would try to change everything about a family...but then again, there are a lot of power-and-control-hungry types out there. I REALLY don't get why the family LET her smash their property...did she do it when no one was around, or right in front of them? Does no one in that family have a backbone?? This is why I mainly watch History Channel and Cartoon Network.
  6. Looks like we'll be "losing" folks to D&DO soon.
  7. Cool Bass! What kinda music do ya play?
  8. Another big plus for me is that I have friends that haved moved to various parts of the country. We can still play together on WoW. It's not the same as being in the same room moving minis around, true, but it's still fun. What 'Storm said about the people on the game is true...you do occasionally run into some real jerks. But I've also played with some very cool folks as well. It sounds as if some folks have something against the game because they've "lost" someone to it. As I said previously, it's not the game's fault. These poor souls could have just as easily gotten "addicted" to things like gambling, porn, or religion.
  9. The great state of Texas, San Antonio, to be specific.
  10. I will admit that it's easy to get caught up in RPGs, but you can say that about tabletop or pen-and -paper games as well. The trick is balancing things. I still read way more than I play WoW. I don't play wargames as much because it's hard to get all my friends together to do so with our schedules. With WoW, I can jump on and play wether my friends are there or not. Now, if someone's playing whatever and ignoring obligations to family/friends/pets/work/school/etc, then that's bad, but it's not the games' fault, its the doofus who can't pry himself away from the screen's fault. I'm sorry to hear that some of you have "lost" friends to computer games, but it isn't WoW's or Everquest's or fill in the blank's fault. And this may sound like blasphemy to some here, but is playing a game for hours any worse than painting minis for hours? As long as you're enjoying yourself, not hurting others, and meeting whatever obligations you have in your life, what's the big deal?
  11. If a guy wants to play a game that doesnt happen to involve minis, let him. Geez. One can do both, ya know.
  12. Welcome to the wonderful addiction known as WoW! I just started an Orc warrior on Silverhand.
  13. Of course, I have to put my word in for anything by Robert E. Howard. There's quite a few collections of his work available (3 volumes of Conan, the Solomon Kane collection, the Bran Mak Morn collection,etc). The Dragoncrown war series by Michael Stackpole is good,too. Read the prequel The Dark Glory wars first. If you like horror, give anything by author Tom Piccirilli a try. I especially liked A Lower Deep and November Mourns.
  14. Decado, the author of the Dragoncrown books is Michael Stackpole. Happy reading!
  15. I really like this series as well. Unlike some series, you never know who will make it to the end of the book still alive. I just finished the latest installment a few weeks ago. Another series I can reccomend is the Dragoncrown War Cycle(The Dark Glory War, Fortress Draconis,When Dragons Rage, and The Grand Crusade). Good thing is , you can get the whole series 'cuz its done! I do enjoy coming into these late, so I dont have to wait for the next book. Still, Martin's books are worth it.
  16. How 'bout an all-female band of pirates? Or maybe some Valkyries? Oh, and all the usual stuff I ask for(cat people, barbarians, swashbucklers, jungle heroes, Picts, REH characters, WoW-type elves,etc.). Or maybe a poop-flingin' monkey.
  17. I usually end up as GM for our games(Conan, Heroes Unlimited, D&D). I always try to make it fun for all involved...I try to make it the kind of game I would like to be in. I come up with everything, but I usually try to get a bit of input from those playing as to what they'd like in a game, or what their character's goals are. Then I can work them into the game(if they're within reason). My friends have always enjoyed the games I've run, and I would feel bad if they weren't having fun. Like others above stated already, if you're not having fun, why waste time playing that game when you can find something else that you will enjoy? Whatever you decide, good luck!
  18. If I had a character in your game, he would definately be a Jaguar guy. There's been talk amongst my friends of wanting to play some D&D....of course, they want me to run it...I ran a Conan game for a whole 2 sessions before that kinda went by the wayside. I told 'em that I want a commitment of at least one or two games a month if I'm gonna go to the trouble of running a game again.....we'll see.
  19. ....is the Jaguar God , axe in hand, going to make an appearance?
  20. Cthulu vs Christopher Walken
  21. Bill, I don't blame you for wanting to pound the jerk, but your lady is right...no need for you to get incarcerated for giving him what he deserves. I think she should let someone know about this. I know dancers go thru a lot of pain(every gal I know who danced has problems), but that is ridiculous. Just be there for her, and help any way you can...as tempting as crushing the guy's sternum, cracking his collarbone, breaking his knees, snapping his ribs, and busting his nose sounds, try not to.
  22. I saw an animated version of this a long time ago, but I haven't read any of the books. If it's got a big-a$$ lion killing things in it, I'll give the movie a shot.
  23. I have: Odin( Husky/Collie/who knows what else-Mix) Anna( adorable white w/grey/black stripes cat) Raven ( black kitten) Pict (black Kitten w/white paws and slashes on chest )
  24. As far as chain places go, I do like Outback's huge plate'o' cheese fries. My favorites tend to be local, independent places. For pizza here in S.A., Rome's is good stuff. Capparelli's is good, too. When I'm in Austin, I always hit Conan's...good pizza to eat, surrounded by Frazetta and Ken Kelly artwork...doesn't get much better. There's a place called Checkers here that's kinda like a '50's style diner that's good. I also like Longhorn Cafe...great cheeseburgers. Shoguns is a Japanese place that has the cooks that throw and chop everything on the big grill in front of you...like Bennihana without the extravagant pricing. Oh, and Casbeers is good, too...burgers, brew, and live music. This is making me hungry.
  25. I haven't seen this one yet. Last good one I saw was Wolf's Rain.
