That makes sense. But there are just so many that cry out for permanency, in particular the ones that can used to guard something or for traps...

Damn...I said I wouldn't cry...

I think it's the perfect tribute to an old friend. Rock on.

Nearly anything that doesn't have a duration of instantaneous.

I'll be 51 in 6 days and by golly I want a classic broad brimmed fedora!

Then there's the one where any race was allowed to the heroes thanks to the Savage Species splatbook, the Yuan-ti attempt to take over the world while both sides fought against each other and interdimensional Nazis. I will plead the Fifth on who wrote this one.

Rules lawyers, the ones who compare my campaign to theirs and then proceed to tell me everything that is "wrong" compared to theirs, and the ones who don't or won't bathe. I've met one person who encompasses all three. *shivers*

Since 1976 there have been thousands of record that went platinum (1,000,000 or more units sold) in the US. For the first time since then there were none.

No Platinum Records in 2014.

I had a player name his swashbuckler Monterrey Jack and his sidekick Sharp Cheddar.

As for me and my group, we're sticking with Pathfinder. We love the evolution of the 3.x rules and we see no reason to sink tons MORE money into another gaming edition. We ignored 4e and decided to stay with PF. Keep on truckin', Paizo!

Would the shaman spells from Deep Magic be useful or even able to be used by the Shaman class from the ACG? I actually don't have a problem with using both versions at the same time. I was just curious.

An "anything goes" setting where you had a stone data pad (before iPads) that had EVERY SPELL EVAR on it), magic stores where anything was for sale for almost nothing, mixing Spelljammer, Planescape, Dark Sun, Forgotten Realms, and Greyhawk all inside a Dyson's Sphere. Monsters weren't a challenge, traps, puzzles, and riddles weren't a challenge; it was all designed so the players could do anything with no hassle or adventuring.

I've done a lot of these, though disallowing full casters isn't one of them. But I think I've done the rest of them over my career.

The trailer makes Horizon look bad. I will probably watch at least the first 10 minutes, though. I'm also not a canon hound, so if Axanar works and Paramount doesn't block it, I'm fine with it, FASA or no FASA.

As for good fan movies, I recommend Star Trek: Phase II. They have done tremendous work with the scripts for the scrapped second TV series.

I'm a big fan of Star Trek Continues and Star Trek: Phase II both, though I think I like STC more. Vic Mignogna has got Kirk down to an art.

Axanar looks very, very good. It helps that they got several experienced actors for the project.

Horizon looks very bad. Not only is the trailer ineptly done, they also went with the temporal cold war background, which killed Star Trek: Enterprise.

I'm very impressed with Axanar, though they use the FASA RPG chronology. The Four Years War was, if I recall, only barely mentioned in TOS, but FASA expanded on its history. Also, I think Richard Hatch's portrayal of "Kharn The Undying" is amazing.

I don't think Horizon is really bad, but it could've been done a little better. And yeah, the Temporal Cold War thing was a waste of good tv.

My DM once used the old Mastermind game as the means for figuring out how to open a door to escape from a white dragon that was looking for us (For those who don't know it's a game where you have to guess what combination of 6 colors belong in 4 slots. You have 10 attempts, if I recall).

I just remembered that the night after we buried my dad my mom said he came to visit her. He was dressed the way he was when they first met, and was young. He told her everything was going to be ok. Until her dying day she believed he'd really been there, and she was one not given to belief in the supernatural normally.

As long as they don't muck up the continuity (although Axanar is based on the FASA RPG Star Trek timeline) these two films look pretty interesting. I look forward to seeing them finished.

Star Trek: Horizon


Star Trek: Axanar

I've gone back through the thread and removed some posts and replies to those posts. This is not the thread to debate whether or not ghost stories are real. If you want to debate the existence of supernatural entities, you need to start a new thread. Keep in mind that we do not tolerate threads created to mock or bait other users.

Thank you!

One of my neighbors has a mullet. She looks like a guy.

Excellent! Money's tight right now, but I hope to be able to get this by the time my Halloween game rolls around.

SCP is a gold mine.

Especially for a modern setting Cthulhu or even the old Dark Matter game from Second Edition days. There are few things that can creep me out in fiction, but some of the stuff on that site.... yeesh.

So what, or who, is The Forge?

Share your ghost stories! Ever seen something you couldn't explain? Hear the things that go bump in the night? Driven to a lonely road to see ghost lights? I have personally never experienced anything like the things listed. But what about you? Share it with us for Halloween!

Ah, well that makes more sense. Thanks!

I love getting a coupon in the mail from Golden Corral for a free birthday buffet trip!

A 2e game where the players are attempting to end the depredations of a cult dedicated to one of the lesser goddess' of the Drow. The Paladin, who'd lost his armor in an earlier incident, turned and faced the avatar of the goddess to buy time for the rest of the players to escape the shrine where she had her lair, which they'd set afire.

Weird, I was thinking about the following incident yesterday. First day of classes in the fall of 1985 my roommates and I are walking from our apartment to the campus at Arkansas State U. I'm wearing a new, tropical looking sort of shirt and feeling pretty fly. Then a bird poops on me. I missed my first class of the day because I had to turn all the way around and go back, and that stain never ever came out.

Stupid bird.

I saw this article yesterday on FB and shared it for my arachnophobic friends.

In Alien: Resurrection (1997), Sigourney Weaver actually managed to sink the basketball into the hoop backwards on the first take, even though she was not supposed to or intended to. The shot was almost ruined because Ron Perlman broke character because he was so amazed.

The best part of that movie.

I have about a half dozen bags, most of which are empty. I keep my complete sets in a little wooden chest and my incomplete sets and just dice I've accumulated in a large glass candy jar. I don't separate them by set as they seem to be happier among their own kind.

Yeah, but if you can't afford the Crown Royal that comes in them, you have to have other solutions. I have a few CR bags, but they were given to me by friends. Just the bags. Dammit.

Isn't that a kender?

Not intended, i meant one of those things with the cymbals.

The point of no stealth is for the party, they can't stealth due to the monkey.

heh, I knew what you meant. Those are creepy. Wait, so are Kender.

Admittedly my views are tarnished by a series of books I didn't like one bit and the way I've seen kender played ever. single. time.

My example is from an actual 2e game I was playing in back in the late 80s.

"What are you so mad about? I opened the sealed sarcophagus that none you could!" Said just before the lights went totally out and the vampire arose from the coffin.

I like Grapenuts. Heat them in the microwave with milk and butter and it's a good, filling warm breakfast for a cold morning.

I would take Coco Pebbles and pour chocolate milk on them. Then I'd be humming like a generator for the next couple of hours.

I swear when I first saw the title to this thread I thought of the band Journey. I'm sorry for that. Your premise and the work you've done already are very impressive!

Met a guy once named Tap Hartley and new a girl named Holly St. Germaine. I always wanted to play in a pulp adventure or noir setting with his name.

I so miss those days of my youth, watching cartoons on Saturday morning with a huge bowl of my favorite over-sugared cereal!

201. An argument over the "tastes great, less filling" debate gets out of hand.
