Purchased it, read it, enjoyed it. :)

I suppose transhumanism in a d20 system depends on your definition of baseline humans. Maybe norms have 10 ability scores across the board and never gain any class levels whatsoever. Or maybe norms can only gain levels in NPC classes, and all PCs are transhuman sheerly by dint of their level advancement. Or maybe norms are martial classes and caster classes benefit from a sufficiently advanced tech.

I guess what I'm saying is, if anyone out there is running a game where Gandalf and Ben Kenobi start at first level and gain enough levels to face off against the Borg queen, I wholeheartedly approve!

I really want Belkar to draw Durkula into the circle of truth to interrogate him in front of witnesses, but Rich is too smart a writer to answer my hopes up with such an obvious solution.

Also, never forget Clarke's old saw about any sufficiently advanced technology . . .

So, at the risk of James Jacobs coming to my house to beat me up, a lot like Lovecraft?

Seveneves was awesome. Pure, unadulterated awesome. Reading that book was like mainlining freebase awesome all weekend long.

. . .

Oh man, I hope I can find something to read before the DTs set in!

ZMOG, Dan*, pick up the psionics UA; the Mystic class needs to be playtested by lost-in-the-crowd-casualty-replacement PCs! :)

*Or "Smilo," whichever you prefer.

Edit: Also, the Mystic class advancement only goes up to level 5 thus far, and if all the campaigns you play have surpassed that level, that's just on circumstance, MANG.

Kadir beneath Mo Moteh.

It was a joke, PA, 'cause Kal ninja'd my post. :)

A lot of the difference in customization has to do with the two systems different treatment of feats. In 5e feats are optional, and replace ability score increases when used. 5e feats are also much more broad, with each feat granting multiple effects. (Feats aren't included in Basic, so you'll just have to trust me if you don't want to buy the PHB.)

Though personally, I think most of the complaints about lack customization come from the fact that 15 years of d20 OGL has resulted in an amount of supplemental material that 5e, being a year old, just can't match.

Also, 5e has no ninja class; Kalshane, take note. :P

I found that the first Bones kick starter was so "worth it" that I got many MANY more minis than I had planned on, so in the second (and third, now) I went for the $1 Foot in the Door contribution. But, yes, if you want to get a mini collection started in one fell swoop, Bones kick starters will do it for you. Very good value for the contribution amounts.

Trying to get Go Set a Watchman downloaded. Squeeee!

I'm very curious about that one, but I feel like I'm going to have to wait a year or two for the hubbub to die down before I can give the book an unbiased reading. If I hear one more NPR puff piece about how it's just the worst thing ever that Atticus Finch supported segregation later in life after everything that's gone in South Carolina this summer, I'm just gonna start punching white people, and that's coming from a white guy.

I got ahold of Seven Eves by Neal Stephenson, and want to read it, but am afraid the book may get the better of me.

Have you read the Wolf Hall series by Hilary Mantel? The plot synopsis you linked sounds . . . relevant, I guess is the best way to describe it.

I actually haven't read the books, but I really enjoyed the BBC dramatization on Masterpiece. Y'know, 'cause watching TV is easier than reading, look, whatever!

WTF difference does that make? Is he not an anime fighter that people can take for reference in their games?

Also, until the entire surviving population of the Earth in living through a post apocalyptic drought, I'm gonna put it in the fantasy category.

ZOMG, they're already living like that in California; The End Is Nigh!

And it's a historical action drama, not fantasy.

I'll freely admit that there aren't any wizards or magic in the story, but there are plenty of examples of Itto Ogami displaying supernatural combat prowess.

Are we talking about RPG systems, or settings?

I feel that systems are designed with core mechanics as standard since the late 90s/first millennial decade. Gone are the days when (D&D) you'd role a d20 for combat, a d% for some skills and a d6 for others. Gone too are the days when (Traveller) baseline human character have one set of ability scores, but aliens replace Social Standing with Social Level, Caste, Charisma, Sense and Caste (but, like, different castes, don't worry about it), Psi (actually, any character you generate rolls for psionics, but it's recommended to play an intendant or noble if you're going Zhodani), Party Standing or Curiosity. (Darrians kept the baseline human ability scores, which feels like a real missed opportunity; given how transparently they were space elves, you think they would have replaced Social Standing with "Elfness" or something, but I guess at that point whoever wrote the alien modules had just had enough.)

Fantasy settings, on the others hand, have to be pre-industrial; the more I think about it, that's the one differentiating factor between fantasy and science fiction. Of course, the more I think about it, the more sure I become that RPG settings always ALWAYS blur the dividing line. At this point I feel like RPGs can't really have a standard setting. Just in order to break even, you have to account for stone age Quest for Fire characters adventuring alongside The Ship Who Sang cyborg types. Then again, I'm the sort of gamer who watches Michael Clayton and starts thinking about adapting it to D&D when it really should (obviously!) be Top Secret.

Um, I'm not sure you quite understood me.

Throne of Blood is Kurasowa's adaptation of MacBeth to feudal Japan.

Shannara is massively derivative, most especially the early books, of the style and broad plot of Lord of the Rings. Intentionally and unapologetically so since Terry Brooks freely admits he was inspired to write the first book by Tolkein's work.

Another example would be critiscing Clueless as being derivative of Jane Austen's Emma.

They are well crafted, entertaining fantsies. Sure, they don't really innovate, but not every great book needs to.

What's funny is, while watching the trailer I thought, "Filmed in New Zealand? Starring John Rhys-Davies? An orc type with piercings all down his nose? It's as if the producers decided that derivative of Tolkien was a feature, not a bug!"

I'm impressed by the trailer, and plan to watch the series when it airs. It remains to be seen if it end up on the top shelf with Games of Thrones, or the one in the middle with Turn, but so long as it's not another Salem, I'll be happy.

. . . Hic!


Y'know Logan, that's maybe the most mature thing I've ever seen anyone do on the internet. :)

As for the playtest (which I have not, in fact, yet had the chance to play test) I'm glad to see that psionics aren't simply a spell point equivalent of cancan casting. Beyond that, time will tell.

Some sort of BDSM thing?

(Kind of makes sense. They've sold and sold and sold, after all, and there can't be all that many Objectivists knocking about...)

More, um... nonconsensual. Like, female protagonists being roughly taken (despite protests).

(I would put a trigger warning on that... but apparently people get triggered by trigger warnings. Irony!)

I've only read The Fountainhead, but in the introduction Rand describes Roark as the ideal of Objectivist masculinity, and then halfway through the book he rapes the female lead. I'm not talking about different social mores in a different time, I'm talking about Dominique saying "I've been raped," later in the course of her narrative. I finished the book, but I could never quite get past that one.

Then, after I read about noted comic book artist and Objectivist Steve Ditko removing his endorsement from a biographical art book because the interviewer was "anti-Ditko" (I didn't even know there were pro- and anti-Ditko factions; I suppose that makes me anti-Ditko) I sort of decided that if you have to abandon your family while fleeing the Russian Revolution, you either come up with a social theory as nut-job bizarro as Objectivism, or die or grief and survivor's guilt.

Speaking of Rand, I think I'll reread Sewer, Gas & Electric by Matt Ruff, that's a fun one.

Anyone who breaks the binding loses their borrowing privileges! Hell, I don't let people manhandle my comic books like that, and most of them are staple bound . . .

Tanith, I don't mean to be disrespectful, or snarky; I certainly don't think you're doing it wrong, but I'm very curious as to how a marriage between multiple parters would function legally. Same sex marriage never required changing the legal function of marriage, where including multiple partners would. I'm thinking particularly of pre-nuptual agreements and divorce.

I'm not saying multiple partnership shouldn't be accorded legal status, but that I think one of the reasons same-sex marriage gained federal recognition was because it was simply including same sex couples in an existing legal status. Hell, don't ask me, maybe all I'm saying is that getting bigamy decriminalized is the first step.

I read some reviews before I saw the season premier, and was completely unconfused when I watched it, despite having heard only that it was too fragmented and nihilistic for the human consciousness to comprehend. This one has me just as intrigued as the first did, but I think it's important to remember how little the first season premier (that is, just the first hour of season 1) defined. I think the lackluster reviews are a result of reviewers comparing the emotional-closure-gestalt-experience of having seen the entire first season with the vast, open-ended WTF?! of having watched only the first episode of either.

When writing his novel about William Shakespeare, Nothing Like the Sun, Anthony Burgess only used words that appear in texts written by Shakespeare - and he did it on a typewriter.

Did Burgess do that on purpose, or was it just that Shakespeare had used so many words that "vocabularic range" wasn't issue? (I assume the typewriter thing is A historical artifact.)

Weird theory: The gods of the north are real. They just happen to be that one wizard looking through the weirwoods. What if the other gods in the series are just powerful wizards, Like Rhlor looking through fires and communicating with his followers?

That is interesting, if only because we've seen Bran warg into a weirwood to receive visions of the past and future. I was as interested to see that when the warlocks of Qarth gave Dany a vision of the iron throne, it was Joffrey's interior decoration, which she had no way of knowing about.

Mel seems to be a pretty unreliable prophet; every time she sees a vision of banners aflame, she assumes it means victory for the red god, whereas given the the track record in Westeros, it's just as likely that everyone's gonna die in a house fire. :P

Magnets. How does they work? Therefore, fantasy.

Remember Elfquest? It had a magnet and magic! But the magic was more like psychic powers, and then at the end it was revealed that the elves were aliens all along, and you knew it was science fiction because in their original form the elves only had one nostril. One nostril!!

Look, it's been like 30 years, I'm not going to spoiler it.

In the books it would be Harry the Heir if they follow events similar to the show.

Book and TV series alike, it would appear that the War of the Five Kings has ended rather conclusively in favor of the extant monarch in King's Landing; then again, they haven't really handled the Iron Isles on TV, have they?

Look, don't ask me, I don't trust genre conventions (or even the previously established plot, for that matter) when it come to Game of Thrones!

While Tommen may have "won" the War of Five Kings by attrition, could one argue that Daenerys is still the rightful ruler of Westeros? If not, then I think the Iron Throne should go to Ser Pounce. ;)

Yes, but let me just say that "rightful" is a fuzzy-edged concept in Westeros, to say the least.

ZOMG, Dolorous Edd wasn't at the stabbing! Never mind Mel, Edd could, like, stumble over his body and nurse him back to life, and Ser Allister would be so ashamed of himself, that, um, I guess he'd, like, blame it all on Ollie and let Mel burn the kid at the stake, or something?

. . .

Sometimes, it gets sort of hard to find a happy ending for the TV series, but a few more minor characters have survived thus far in the books.

Have you no limitations at all? No books? No classes? No spells, No feats, no tech? No settings? Wealth? Do you not set Point buy? Do you allow rolling if they dont want point buy? If so, do you not set the die rolling parameters?

I don't mean to be snarky (well, not that snarky), but weren't you going outside every single existing parameter of the rules when you invented the Thief class back in 1974? I don't understand why a person who invented new material that early in the game's use would be a proponent of limitation rather than experimentation.

Doodles, Kindred is probably the least science fiction-ey of Butler's stuff. You want the Xenogenesis trilogy, or the Patternmaster series. Actually, wait, if you want something that pinkos can wax [insert whatever emotion you types get off on; socio-economic melancholia, I guess?] try The Parable of the Sower and The Parable of the Talents.

Random(ish) question relating to setting integrity and whatnot: Does anyone here play in a group where different people run games in the same campaign world? That is, with revolving GMs who detail the world? I haven't lately, but I have in the past.

Of course, I'm one of those GMs who gets bored with my world map every couple of years and redraws it, so my setting integrity bar is set pretty low.

Plowed my way through Trigger Warning, Gaiman's new anthology. Enjoyable!

I am thinking that we will need a 3 hour episode to wrap up the stuff they need to, cause I am not seeing a single hour being able to do it.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but I was pretty impressed with how concise the Hardhome scene was. They could have made it a single scene episode ala episodes 9 of season 2 and 4 (The Battle of Blackwater and the Battle of the Wall, in case I've got the numbering wrong), but instead . . .

Episode 8 had new characters (all the wildings who spoke at the negotiation), new information (it's been mentioned as lore in the books, but I think this is the first time valerian steel killing the others just like dragonglass has been introduced as a concept) and plot points (the Night's King [thanks for the info, BNW, I'd forgotten] isn't just some weirdo who transforms sacrificed Craster-sons, he's a dude with an agenda, and probably the BBEG of the whole series).

The TV adaptation did all that in a half hour or so. D&D (and their staff of writers, fine) do a very pithy adaptation. I really wouldn't put it past them to cram a lot into the season finale.

I'm thinking Theon will remember his name in time to help Brienne rescue Sansa and flee to Castle Black. Sansa will tell Jon Snow that Bran and Ricon are still alive. Jon and Sam are all like, "Dude, we know, but Bran's above the wall." Davos, who's still there 'cause Stannis sent him, goes, "I've lost Shireen to that crazy burn-them-at-the-stake witch lady, but never again! Brienne, let's go rescue Ricon, I'm worried about his king's blood liability!!"

At that point, the TV show's plot development will be very close to that of the books. How much they can fit into a single episode depends on the pacing, but I think there's room for a dragon riding Khaleesi in the hour I've just described. :P

I mean, I'd be perfectly satisfied to watch a 3 hour season finale, I just don't have enough popcorn in the house. :)

Just for looks, I think; having Jon show up at the head of the refugee wildings, and get into a 700 foot staring contest with Ser Allister Thorne to open the gate, is much more dramatic than just showing up in Castle Black's courtyard. Speaking of whom, I love what they've done with Thorne this season. It seems like his loyalty to the Watch outweighs his hate of Jon, which, when you've established him as such a sonofab@&$#, is character development gold.

Then again, (and you'll know what this means if you know what it means) "For the Watch!"

Would you mind pointing out where the rules explicitly say that the characters' bone and muscle density isn't going up as the gain hit points?

That's a totally viable explanation for something as abstract as HP.

I guess it's in the vital statistics section where there's no mention of weight increasing with level? :P

Edit: What's funny is, today's Unearthed Arcana at the WotC site has variant rules for Vitality in place of hit points; I'll be right over here re-inventing the wheel lol.

I have not read any of the books, so I have a few questions:

So, does this mean that

Also, I gather that Daenerys
** spoiler omitted **

I tend to place Daenerys and Tyrion among my favorite characters, so I'm very curious what lies in store for them ...

In the books, Tyrion hasn't yet met Daenerys face to face; as I remember, he and Jorah are outside Mareen with an army laying siege to the city, when Tyrion, in his last POV section, gets a terrific idea for how to impress Daenerys.

The scene with Drogon in the arena takes place earlier the book. There's at least one scene where Selmy (still alive) is running the city in Danys' name, while the nobles argue that she's portably dead, from being eaten or dropped by Drogon, and he thinks, "I'm pretty sure she was riding that dragon, and Targaryens don't really fall off of dragons." The book ends with a Dany POV section at Drogon's lair out in the Dothraki plains, where Danys says, "The Dothraki really didn't respect me after Khal Drogo died, but I bet a big huge dragon changes their minds."

Wow, indeed!

As I was reading that scene in the book, I was all, "This is should be AWESOME when the TV show adapts it," and I was not disappointed.

The Morgaine series is fricken terrific; every time I read it, I get sad that she couldn't finish the second trilogy. There is, however, a sort of crypto-prologue in her short story collection Visible Light, if you can get ahold of it.

Well, the goddess might have some serious questions for you. About how you are making eyes at those demon tramps, and then getting into that situation.

Basically, you fall until you atone by sleeping on the couch of solitude for a fortnight. The goddess might also go back to her mother's, and take the mount with her.

Sleeping on the couch with your underpants on, though, right? Seriously, it's important an important question if your roommates come home early . . .

Well my Kaidan setting of Japanese horror (PFRPG) was designed to emphasize authenticity of culture and technology based on feudal Japan, but its not feudal Japan - so there's no real claim of historical accuracy, as Kaidan never existed in history. The setting generally sits between 1185 and 1600 in comparitive history of Japan - the end of the Genpei War (April 1185) was the start of the Minomoto Shogunate up to the start of the Tokugawa Shogunate, which is preceded by the Sengoku Period (century of war).

Kaidan actually borrows from literal Japanese history, incorporating the events of the last battle of the Genpei War 1180-1185. The losers in the Genpei War was the Taira clan who supported a different emperor than the Minomoto. In the last battle of Dan-no-ura, the entire imperial house of Taira committed suicide by jumping into the sea.

Kaidan picks up following that leap to death - the entire imperial house is dead, but a cursed wish was uttered upon the mass suicide, and Emma-O, the lord of Jigoku (hell) grants the wish. The imperial house gets rescued out of the water, but they are all undead and now rule the empire and shogunate of Kaidan, and have done so for 714 years.

Because the setting fits up to 1600, this means that like Japan, Europeans (or someone similar) brought arquebus guns and gunpowder to Kaidan, and arquebus technology exists there, but also like Japan, Kaidan will never advance past the arquebus stage. Kaidan forcibly stopped the advancement of culture and technology to remain as status quo.

Kaidan is a police state, with metsuki inquisitors enforcing the law with bands of samurai and onmyoji wizards to maintain order. The creation of magic items, as well as the practice of magic outside the Ministry of Onmyodo is against the law. While there are witches and sorcerers in Kaidan, they practice illegally and will be executed if caught by the imperial authorities.

Kaidan is not Golarian, nor like any Japan analog previously created.

You've just reminded me of the first time I saw The Last Samurai, when Tom Cruise delivered the line, "You have no idea what their weapons can do!" That movie purported to be historical, but I was all, "Actually, in that era, I'm pretty sure the Japanese were very familiar with the various uses of gunpowder."

Historical accuracy vs fantasy plausibility is always an interesting proposition, but here in the land of RPGs, I think we should put more value on plausibility than accuracy.

Chanur and Foreigner are my favorites, but Rider at the Gate is PERFECT for summer. Very evocative of the cold.

From everything she's said, she's just going to keep writing Foreigner until she keels over in front of her word processor, like O'Brian and the Aubrey-Maturin series. (Though I imagine O'Brian dying at a typewriter, 'cause he's old school.)

Video games in middles school?! In middle school, you should have been reading Philip Jose Farmer's werewolf (um, and a lot of other stuff) porn. That's what I was doing!

Sorry, what was that about a lifelong psychological impact? Well, I think I turned out fine, so I guess I don't recognize the premise of your question!
