Man 1: Can I ask you something?

Man 2: Go ahead, ask me.

Man 1: How come we doing this?

Man 2: For the good ol' American way. For the money, for the glory, and for the fun. Mostly for the money.

Totally guessing:

3 kings?


Andorian, because that is where the undead Kobold King reigns.


Time to roll up some characters:

1. Frush o Smuggil
2. Bleep wurp the eyebiter
3. Fonkin Hoddypeak
4. Flerd Trantle

Pretty original names - I am sure no one else has ever come up with them.

The strangest thing I have read in this thread so far is someone who noted they avoid using James Jacobs adventures, for me Smuggler's Shiv is the only really good aventure in the Serpents skull AP. To each his own I guess.

For Mummy's Mask, I do agree the the OP. I forsee my group wanting to be foreign Treasure seekers..Adventure 1 setps that up great..but why the blazes would they go risking their life by going into the desert to stop a cult from raising an ancient Pharoah. They would be more likely to get on the first boat back to Absolom.

In that respect, I still like the setup from the Desert of Desolation series..you are ordered on pain of death to go into the desert to stop some raiders. If you succed or fail is irrelevant. You are foreigners and are expendable and are just proof the khan is doing something about the raiders.

I loved the Baldurs Gate games. They are still some of my all time favorites, but one of my few complaints about them is that for many parts you practically need a walkthrough or at least foreknowledge of what is to come, perfect tactics, and knowledge of where to get some items ahead of time that can very easily be missed. Even then after all that there are still fights you need tremendous amounts of luck and save scumming to hope to make it through. Even though I got through everything there were some fights I must have tried over fifty times to get past them, and that was when I was very well prepared for them.

If my memory is serving me correcting that golem was a real pain for me too.

Lilacor is the key..I do also remember giving a flail to Jaheiera (flail of ages)..but Lilacor was the main weapon which took the golem out.


FLT:"In the Winter of 1969, an elite force of the US Army was sent on a top secret assignment in Southeast Vietnam. The objective: rescue Sgt. Four Leaf Tayback from a heavily guarded NVA Prison Camp. The mission was considered to be near-suicide. Of the ten men sent, four returned. Of those four, three wrote books about what happened. Of those three, two were published. And of those two, only one got a movie deal. This is the story of the men who attempted to make that movie. "

Brienne in book 4 was not about her, or the enemies she faces, or anything else like that. It is solidly meaningless... unless you realize it's the way for GRRM to show us Crackclaw Point and the rest of that corner of Westeros.

GRRM does that a lot. He'll make someone a PoW character to give us an insight into what's going on in some part of the world, even if the character itself isn't doing anything interesting.

Imho Brienne's chapters are really more about exploring what the world on the wrong side of a castle wall looks like in wake of the war, than progressing any particular storyline.

The guys in charge might think the war is over, but the smallfolk probably disagree.

I enjoyed Brienne's chapters exactly because she was spending so much time just traveling through the "real" world.

That is exactly what much of Feast of Crows was for..showing the massive carnage war caused on the common people..hence lots of time spent on the grwoing number of Sparrows and why the Church is becoming stronger..the nobility won't care for the common people, but the church does.


Isle of Dread my favorite


Is it wrong that I read this thread now to see how many of Magnuskn's players show up as opposed to hear about the damage output? 4-5 seems to be the median but he has been getting a few 6 player sessions which sounds awesome (when I last Dm'd I had 5 players but usually could only rely on 3 every friday.

Ben-Hur.

Excellent film.

Ben Hur is and will always likely be one of my top 10 films that I have ever seen. In fact it is probibly number 2 or 3 behind Star Wars and Empire.

For the last quote, well the first 3 quotes were all Heston films and so was it, although it is not as well known. Its like being a Mark Hamill fan and forgetting he did Corvette Summer.

C:"Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death. "


This is almost the easiest I've lobbe dout, but no one has done this movie yet:

DT:"Ocean's dying, plankton's dying... it's people. *SG is made out of people.* They're making our food out of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for food. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them! "


There's nothing wrong with Fool Moon per say, it is just a set up book for the rest of the series..later books have more depth because of the ground work done earlier. Most of the books low in my ranking are early in the series.


Ranking the dresden novels..my picks

1. Dead Beat
2. Changes
3. Turn Coat
4. Small Favor
5. Blood Rites
6. Cold Days
7. Proven Guilty
8. Death Masks
9. Skin Game
10. White Knight
11. Grave peril
12. Summer Knight
13. Storm Front
14. Ghost Story
15. Fool Moon

F: I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Besides, I got a big day tomorrow. You guys have a great time.

CS: A big day? Doing what?

F: Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.


RB: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.

VC: No, there's no way that's correct.

RB: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

VC: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?

RB: No. No.

VC: No, that's - that's what it means. Really.

RB: Agree to disagree.


H:"I wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot. "

S;"Well gentlemen, now that the moment has come to bid you farewell, I congratulate both you, Doctor, and you, Professor, on your brilliant work in the development of the submarine tracking system. Thanks primarily to you, I am happy to say that the first phase of our operation has met with considerable success. I have instructed my assistant to have paid into your Swiss bank accounts the sum of ten million dollars each. "


HD: "Frederick Gray! What a surprise. And in distinguished company, all wearing gas masks. You must excuse me, gentlemen, not being English, I sometimes find your sense of humor rather difficult to follow! "


Most impotantly, Burger King made an appearence!

Edited to add:
Lest you think I jest, one of my favorite scenes in the series is having Desden and Marcone meeting at a Burker King for breakfast.


P;" Mr. M, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. "
BM:"Okay, a simple "wrong" would've done just fine. "

T:"Sit down. You're one of the last descendants of a dying race. Pilgrims were the first space explorers and sailors. For five centuries they defied the odds. They embraced space, and for that, they were rewarded with a flawless sense of direction.

Why is this not in my hot little hands yet? Need!


I am going to read Skin Game again tonight, and no one can stop me..

I mean, the first read through was so fast I am realizing I might have missed some hints..

Spoiler:
For those wondering about how Lashciel knew about a certain parasite, well Dresden talked to Murphy about it and Nick's shadow could have overheard.

Again correct on all 3 of mine.

Heres a great movie I don't think has been quoted yet:

JB:"All I know is, this Lo Pan character comes out of thin air in the middle of a g*!#+*n alley while his buddies are flying around on wires cutting everybody to shreds, and he just stands there waiting for me to drive my truck straight through him with *light* coming out of his mouth!"

Absolutely Correct!

There was a wave of sword/sorcery flicks in nthe early 1980's after conan the barbarian came out, sadly most were total crap (Ator the invincible, or deathsalker..).

The Sword and Socerer rose above the muck, with good proudction values and reasonable acting.
