Kingmaker just needs a stretch of wilderness near some unstable nations. It reskins out of Golarion really easily.

I'm running it now for my own world and I agree. I ditched the fey elements (and book 6) and put in more politics and war. It's been a great success so far.

I signed up for the Ironfang Invasion AP and I received Pathfinder Adventure Path #121: The Lost Outpost in the mail. I have not seen anything since and when I look at my subscription account, it does not mention books 2-4. It just says 5 and 6 are coming out in June and July.

I'm not sure if it's something on my end as I have not had any warnings or messages.

Thanks for your help!

For some reason Marvel never really liked the Teen Sidekicks thing. Closest they really had was Rick Jones. But it's a great way to build a new character and let them become a natural part of the setting.

Well, besides Bucky and Kitty/Jubilee to Wolverine, I see your point. I'm bummed by the fact that every major Marvel superhero has half a dozen clones now with similar powers. It really waters down the original character.

Sometimes I feel like Marvel doesn't like the fun parts of Superheroes. Like being a superhero needs to constantly be about sacrificing your own life and happiness for the good of others. I blamn Bendis for that.

I approve of this Bendis hatorade.

Indeed. I've been collecting for damn close to thirty years, and the cycle always repeats. Happened to me with Flash. They unceremoniously dropped original recipe Wally West down the memory whole and brought back Barry. I tried to keep with that, but found it lame.

Now, with Rebirth, I'm back to collecting because I'd heard the writing on Flash was really good. And it has been. I'm even starting to like Other Wally.

Hell, I'm even collecting a few Bat titles again. Even though that little ballsack Damian has a tendency to show up.

I was sad to see Barry come back, partly because I like to see death mean something in comics and partly because I liked Wally a lot.
Barry went out like a true hero. I can see where you are coming from. Only death I felt was more amazing was ted.

Ted Kord? Isn't he back now too?

I'm not 100% anti-resurrection. Bucky's return as the Winter Soldier was amazing, for instance, but Bucky was killed in a flashback and his death was pretty 'weightless' by comparison. Jean's story was told and finished and tied up with a pretty bow, making her return require, IMO, something even more epic than her death. Bucky's return *was* more epic than his death (or even his previous life as Cap's WW2 era sidekick). Jean's second stab at life kind of wasn't, IMO.

I was definitely against the return of Bucky. I really don't like them messing with the "iconic" deaths like Bucky, Gwen Stacy, Uncle Ben, Wayne parents, etc., but the Winter Soldier storyline was pretty damn amazing.

I had to eat my words with that one. It is in my top three Cap stories.

Because comics are essentially conservative. There's a baseline default that everything regresses towards. It seems that the target audience for comics is guys who stopped reading their favorite titles back in 1995, and want to pick them back up with the least glitches in continuity.

Iron Man will eventually be back to being Tony Stark. Thor will eventually return to being the Odinson. And Uatu the Watcher will regain his post on Earth's moon.

Ehhhh... I'm about as conservative as it gets with keeping my comics traditional but, there's a pretty strong difference between Uatu and Thor or Captain America. I can't imagine there are massive fans of Uatu who would riot with him replaced... if there are they should have already rioted with him getting killed. He's not a main character... heck he's not even a secondary character or even really a guest star. He's pretty much spent his entire career being somewhere between a narrator and a plot device.

Just the fact that there IS a watcher who shows up when something 'big' is going to happen to record it in his journals... That's all there is to the Watcher.

Actually, did Uatu's death even been mentioned since Secret Wars? I wonder if Reed Richards included that when he rewrote the universe...

Interesting question. And I would be surprised if people cared about Uatu, I know I don't. Then again, Marvel has damaged some of main characters so much that I don't even care about them anymore.

I actually liked the first issue of the new Nick Fury series. Except for the art, which came across a little too psychedelic to me. The story was fairly straight forward, confined to one issue, and stand alone, all while introducing a potential long-term antagonist.

So, essentially, this post doesn't really fit the thread title.

I've been meaning to check that out. Would you recommend it?

I wonder if Nick Fury will come back from his Watcher role with the Legacy reboot later this year.

I'm not one that typically rates shows but I'm surprised how many people are rating Luke Cage so low. I thought that show was phenomenally well done.

I don't know about other folks but just because LC is lower on my list doesn't mean I didn't like it. I enjoyed watching it and thought it was a good show (with flaws, just like all of them). I just like other shows a bit more.

I finished it last night, and overall I liked it. Initially the Hand being such a big part of the Iron Fist/Kun Lun background threw me off but being mortal enemies made more sense than the H'ylthri plant people. Obviously it plugs in better with the future Defenders too. The fight scenes were fine, they did not top DD which was what I was hoping for, but they weren't terrible. I thought it had problems but I'm not sure what the critics were thinking, although I suspect some just had an axe to grind.

I finished last night and enjoyed it. I know next to nothing about Iron Fist from the comics, so whatever changes they made didn't impact me at all.

One thing I really liked, which I was surprised no one has mentioned is that Jones did a great job of portraying Danny as completely confident, knowledgeable and collected whenever the topic was martial arts, fighting, and related stuff, but as soon as he had to deal with anything else, he was channeling his inner man-child, and was essentially still the 10 year old boy who survived a plane crash. It made perfect sense to me that growing up with nothing being taught to him other than martial arts would leave his 10-year old personality still pretty dominant in other areas, whether it was fascination at the stickers he played with as a kid still be on his father's desk to awkwardness when dealing with social situations, like not having the slightest clue why the Meechums wouldn't instantly embrace him.

I know a decent amount on IF and I noticed this and liked it too.

This would be my favourite Marvel show if they had fighting scenes at least on the level of Daredevil, the main actor ruins it mostly, also the ending is ridiculous

I thought it was rushed and would have been better over a couple of episodes but it still made sense to me. The immortality curse Harold had was working against him. Earlier in the series, he plays the long game with all decisions but later, he has volatile outbursts and makes more spontaneous choices that backfire, like bringing Joy into the fold.

Based on how well the series has done, I look forward to season 2 and hopefully more Davos and more memorable fight scenes.

My list:
DD
DD2
IF
LC (I need to watch this again, I think it's probably tied with IF)

The key elements, in their various stages of completion thus far, are:

1. The troop template and rules for converting individual creatures to troops to armies.

2. A bestiary of ready-made troops

3. A mercenary group generator.

4. There's at least one other section that I'm not remembering off the top of my head.

Sounds great, I hope it comes out before my KM campaign is done.

Could you explain more about the "mercenary group generator?"

No, that sounds wrong.

I've been looking forward to Ultimate Armies since it was first announced and I can't wait to see it. I'm excited for Ultimate Strongholds because it's something I can get my own design teeth into. I'm excited for Ultimate Armies as a fan.

I can tell you about Ultimate Strongholds!

1) The Downtime Rules. So, you use downtime to make your building, but what if you wanted to... make it out of adamantine? Magical glass? Make it able to fly? Teleport? What capital and how much do those cost? What about cheaper interior walls but very secure exterior walls?

2) How easy is it destroy that building? How about with siege weapons? What if there's a defensive wall?

3) You built an amazing castle and... the generic castle from Ultimate Campaign doesn't quite cut it in terms of the building's effect on the kingdom. Would you like some rules to tweak the kingdom modifiers?

4) I wanna build a castle outside a settlement! Not a fort, and I don't want to create a whole new settlement for this, but I want an actual castle across that canyon. What does that cost?

A lot of it is inspired by the old 3E Stronghold Builder's Guidebook (which I'm very carefully not taking off the shelf), but as I hope you can see is designed to integrate with Ultimate Campaign in some depth.

Sounds great! Is there an ETA for this? I ask because I'm currently in book 4 of Kingmaker and have a lot of army/siege/war stuff coming up.

I just finished it last night. Overall, I liked it and I think Colter is a great Cage. I loved all the nods to the comics and other Netflix shows. I was hit/miss on Misty as she was acting like a jerk (and stupid), but by the end of the show, I liked how they handled her, warts and all. And Cottonmouth and Mariah were almost my favs of the whole thing!

Spoiler:
The weakest part of the show for me was Diamondback. He was written poorly, came across as almost silly and the suit! Man, I appreciate that they tried to match the original look from the comics, but the outfit at the end made him look like some bad guy from a 70's show like Buck Rogers. Plus the obvious power source on the back made me wonder why Cage didn't crush it.

I was kind of thinking that when they were extracting the bullet, the fact that stuff went wrong for a bit was going to count as Luke Cage's second experiment, and that the would become even tougher (like happened in the comics), rendering him immune to the Judas bullets.

Ooh, that could have made some sense, if they wanted to upgrade the character, and the boiling acid bath could still have some lingering side-effects, if they wanted to explore that in a (theoretical) second season of Luke Cage. (He could be weakened, or strengthened, or one after the other, or have some other unusual reaction.)

Yeah, I like that too.

I can't wait for this, as I did not care for the newer incarnations(although blizzard, speed demon and taskmaster were AWESOME).

Yea, everything up until the end of the Niceza run was great.

I tried staying after for the wrestling thing and really thought that it should have been it's own separate thing. Came back for the two miniseries with Niceza and the original team but stayed away from Ellis' run as I'm not a fan of Ellis when he works with established superhero characters.

Wayward by Jim Zub is pretty decent though. Not really a fan of the Pathfinder Comics. Skull Kickers is kinda fun though.

Better Ellis than Ennis.

Neither one would work best.

Mel Gibson’s ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Draws 10-Minute Standing Ovation in Venice

I was unfamiliar with Desmond Doss until I heard about this movie and watched the trailer. His story definitely impressed the hell out of me. And the movie looks to me to be possibly one of the best war movies in a good while.

And it's good to see Mel Gibson getting back in the game. He's always been far too talented an actor/director to sit on the sidelines.

I never heard of Doss before this, but the trailer looks fantastic. I'll definitely see this in the theater.

As an aside: Anyone who wants a stirring epic to listen to as they drive along could do worse than the Silmarillion. The narrator has one of those voices that makes you think of Homer and Odysseus. And the story! Flame-hearted Faenor and his crafting of the Silmarils. Melkor/Morgoth and dread Ungoliant and their destruction of the Two Trees. The rise and fall of Numenor.

Epic

I should get that for my wife. She's always meant to read the Silmarillion, and it would make her commute a little more fun.
