Three episodes in and I like it so far. I'm expecting it to pick up around ep 5-6 like the other series.

Proud geek dad moment; my 8 y/o had to pick a literary character to dress up as for school.
His choice:
GANDALF.

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?"

I'm far more interested in Ultimate Armies!

Me too!

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.

If only there were someone to tell us about Ultimate Armies...

*cough*

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.

They're still being written! Jason's got Ultimate Armies, and I'm doing Ultimate Strongholds, so there are a couple more books in the pipeline right now.

Can you tell us more about the content of these books?

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.

For my Mom, it was the poor starving kids in India. So one day I got up from the table, went out to the living room, got an envelope from the desk, went back to the table, and started filling the envelope with mashed potatoes. My father asked "what do you think you're doing?" I said "Well, I keep hearing about the poor starving kids in India, so I thought I'd send them some food."

I couldn't sit down for a week. :-)

But.. but... did the envelope reach India or not?

I loved original thunderbolts.

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.

Oh I basically took yesterday as a holiday. I loafed, I napped, I watched the endless FXX Simpsons for a while (I basically have only seen about 15% of the show, so a lot of them are new to me)

If I remember right, seasons 2- 8 are the best. Everything else is meh.

Oh man. We are bringing down this ironically titled thread. Let's bring in some positivity, guys.

A proton and a neutron are walking down the street.

The proton says, "Wait, I dropped an electron, help me look for it."
The neutron says "Are you sure?"
The proton replies "I'm positive."

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.

The power of positive thought and visualization cannot be overemphasized people. I know it sounds all New Agey and hippy-dippy, but the SH!T WORKS!

I visualized going to GenCon. I let nothing get in my way. I still have some anxiety about the financials, but by having faith I have everything I need covered as long as I don't go nuts and buy every book off the shelves.

Meh, Stark is such a damaged character with all the crazy/evil stuff he's done going back to Civil War and beyond, I really could care less about what they do with him now.
