I just realized that you posted this on my birthday, IMax. Thanks for caring! ;)

Re: 4th Edition D&D Influenced by Heroscape?

I ran my first 4E gaming session last week. I will say the combat was a LOT more fun than most 1st level encounters that I've run in previous editions. OTOH, it was also pretty protracted --...

Re: My first Elf Wizard Army battle

They look complicated, but the key is that Ulginesh lets you move two wizards and Emiroon lets you carry along at least 2 wizards most of the time. So if you have order markers on Ulginesh, you can...

My first Elf Wizard Army battle

Played my first real battle with the elves last night, and was surprised by how much they kicked butt!

Me:
Ulgy
Chardris
Jorhdawn
Emiroon
2xAubrien Archers
Kyntela Gwyn
and a couple more...

Re: 4th Edition D&D Influenced by Heroscape?

Then delve deeper my friend! Don't mistake simplicity for dippiness. They've made the game faster to play, and made it easier for DMs to shape the game the way they want it to. And 4th edition offers...

Re: TV Show: Battlestar Galactica - FINAL SEASON HAS BEGUN

I very much agree, although I think Baltar is a close second. He's still a phenomenally egocentric, cowardly person, yet he's also developed this bizarre, almost saintly religious presence that comes...

Re: TV Show: Battlestar Galactica - FINAL SEASON HAS BEGUN

Hmm. Some things were said in the most recent episode that might be interpreted as undermining your theory, but on the other hand, I didn't know how "Caudal" was spelled until you posted it....

Re: 4th Edition D&D Influenced by Heroscape?

I have a D&D campaign that I've run in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 3.5th editions, and I frankly don't see how to move it over into 4E. My current adventuring party is well into Epic levels in 3.5E, and you...

Traveller Returns

I picked up my 4E Dungeons and Dragons books on Free Game Day and was surprised and pleased to see Traveller Book 0 as one of the free games. Having long been a fan of Traveller, I grabbed it up.

Re: Doctor Who - Silence in the Library

I just watched part 2 ("Forest of the Dead"). I have to say, I haven't been a big fan of Donna Noble before, but she was fantastic in this episode, which is easily one of my favorites of the whole...

Re: TV Show: Battlestar Galactica - FINAL SEASON HAS BEGUN

Cripes! Am I the only one still watching BG? I just watched the mid-season finale (was out on vacation when it aired), and it was FRACKIN' AMAZING!

I continue to be thoroughly astonished at the...

Re: Movie: The Happening

I think you're being too literal here. The point of the Village (which is not a very good film, in my opinion) is that leaders, whether well-intentioned or not, sometimes use falsehoods to create...

Re: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

This makes me curious what you think is so great about Last Crusade. I've heard and read a lot of people put this one in third (or even fourth) place for the series, and personally I've never thought...

It was excellent, thank you!



Ack! Good lord, please don't!



Oh. Sorry I jumped the gun there.

Re: R.I.P. Tim Russert

It's generally considered pretty bad form to speak ill of the dead, so it's not surprising that you're not hearing anything bad about him now.

All indications seem to be that Russert was a really...

Re: Congratulations Barack Obama

I want to say this, too, about the notion of, "You're not patriotic if you're ashamed of your country."

This notion is pretty obviously untrue if you think about it for even a second. There were...

Re: Congratulations Barack Obama

By this logic, Barack Obama should be careful during the next five months or so to never publicly blink or yawn. Do you have a DVR? My wife pretty regularly pauses the TV around our house, and there...

Re: Congratulations Barack Obama

Racism certainly won't cause Obama to win. I'm sure there are some minorities out there who would vote for any minority candidate over any white candidate, regardless of party affiliation. But those...

You seemed to be calling Hahma naive for thinking things are getting better in this country. I was just providing a piece of counterpoint evidence.

Overt racism and bigotry are definitely on their way out in this country.

Sorry if I was unclear. I wasn't saying Indiana Jones isn't copied from anything. I was saying the current Indy movie isn't copied from The Mummy or Sahara.

Re: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

You know, IMax, I'm sorry you don't like me. I'm not sure what I've ever done to you. If I had to guess, I'd say you probably think I'm really full of myself and overly proud of my own intelligence....
