Which Star Wars version?

Bozzok is most likely - it was foreshadowed.

It does assume you have access to the Player's Handbook or D20 SRD for the basics.

Actually, you need to have access to the d20 version of Munchkin, other wise you won't understand important skills like "Whine", "Pose" and "Ecdysiast"!

I agree, Dragon. Which is why I'm not certain it was the Mind Gem. Thanos' whole schtick is "assemble the Gauntlet at all costs," so it makes little sense to me at this moment why he would relinquish one of those pieces. My guess? At least one (if not more) of the other Infinity Gems are already on Earth. This would explain why one (if not two) have already turned up on our pale blue dot in such a short time. It was Thanos' plan to take Earth so he could acquire the Gems already here.

I'm still hoping that the Eye of Agamotto ends up being the Reality Gem, which is how Doctor Strange performs "magic."

That would fit neatly into the MCU's "mythos."

how long do we have to wait for new SHIELD anyway?

I know we got Agent Carter in it's place for the next little while but kind of curious to see how this Inhuman's thing goes

Agents of SHIELD comes back in March.

Agent Carter starts in January.

Should we start a new thread for Agent Carter or continue in this one?

Another way of thinking of it is how medieval subjects would refer to their lord by title, rather than by name, but the lord's closest friends and servants (and they could get quite close) would be able to refer to them by name comfortably.

This makes a lot of sense. :)

What about the most important Sci-Fi RPG out there - Star Munchkin RPG?

I guess it comes down to who at the meeting and how it happened. If two clerics meet in an anything goes city, and ones a true neutral worshiping a NE deity and the others a true neutral worshiping a NG deity, they would most likely be as friendly as you'd be to someone you hate on the street.

But, if those same two meet in a dungeon, even if they're on the same side and don't know it, I think they would throw down.

Life is never so simple. And your answer avoids the question.

What is the correct etiquette for the situation?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

When clerics of two different patrons encounter each other (out of combat at least) is it considered more polite to refer to the other cleric's patron by his/her name or by his/her title?

For example: When dealing (peacefully) with clerics of "Zon-Kuthon" does a cleric of Shelyn refer to their god as "Zon-Kuthon" or as "The Midnight Lord"? (The Shelynite -in this case- wishes the encounter to remain cordial.)

Plenty of characters died before him... hack in this very episode Whitehall died.

Daniel Whitehall was the villain (and a remarkably unsympathetic one). His death was always foreordained. That he was killed off so early was a surprise - His death was not.

Tripp's death was a heroic sacrifice.
Not exactly, it's not that he made a deliberate decision to die in order to save others, and after he stopped the bombs there was no need for him to stay in the city any longer. He tragically made it just in time into the chamber where the crystal went off, where he was useless to others and helpless to save himself. He didn't achieve anything in dying. He just bit the bullet.

You mean Paizo going dark wasn't a promo for a new Paizo game?

(frankly, I find the X-Men a poor excuse for super-powered beings... before the X-Men, one had to think of a cool origin story for a character's power, but this mutant business came and introduced untold amounts of super powered beings for no good reason - don't give me that crap about evolution taking course over only one or two generations due to pollution etc. if that would be the case the resulting evolution would be "resistance to polluted air" there. done. finished. Bob's your uncle. The term "mutant" would take a whole new meaning and I'm not sure the regular humans - dying horribly of chronic respiratory disorders - would bother "registering" the "humans that look like they're breathing just fine over there")
Think of WHEN the X-Men came out. The point of the series was not to get into a biological treatise on the nature of super powers. It's to tell a story of race prejudice and hatried in a different way. The mutant question was a way to tackle on a story that couldn't be done face on... racial prejudice and xenophobia.

A story that continues to be relevant.

Hands Up! Don't Shoot!

Yeah, I think that music box is the final nail in the coffin. If he's not Mister Hyde, then they're playing some serious bait-n-switch.
Why? What did I miss? I saw the music box, but I didn't recognize any clue there...

The song that the music box was playing is the other clue.

-- Add to that, her father is an unstable medical professional (a.k.a., Dr. Calvin Zabo) with strength far higher then he should have.
-- Add to that, his daughter became a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.

Yes, it is not the only possible explanation. Skye's father could still be Maximus the Mad, but it is more likely that Maximus is reserved for an Inhumans movie - but Mr Hyde is minor enough to be available to AoS.

From the Marvel (comics) wiki: "At some point Hyde fathered a daughter, Daisy Johnson, who became a member of S.H.I.E.L.D.; her mother was Kim Johnson, apparently a prostitute with whom [Hyde] regularly had 'business'. The girl was put up for adoption after birth, subsequently manifesting superpowers due to Zabo's mutated genetic code being passed on to her."

We know that "mutants" cannot exist in the MCU (due to legal reasons).

This is why it looks like they are making Mr Hyde an Inhuman.

Wouldn't a priest of Desna (Goddess of Luck, Travelers, Stars, and Dreams) have a problem with Piracy?

Pirates not only don't help travelers, they are usually harming them.

Yup. An old C-lister.

Question:

Do you think that the MCU is combining the "Mr Hyde" the Inhumans storylines?

The song that was playing in Skye's dream (Bicycle Built for Two) was does leave "Daisy, Daisy" ringing in the ear.

Because he was sent down to find the dwarves and repair them, and they'd already returned some basic information before they went out, including the fact that there wasn't any water.

That doesn't mean that uncirculated air would still be breathable.

The new cross-guard is stupid. It represents yet another Elitist's

Yep.

Given what J.J. Abrams has done to Star Trek, why should Star Wars fans miss out on the pain?

While I do hope that Paizo reconsiders and does a more "Space Opera" setting, I do not believe that they should do a "licensed" property.

The description of Sylphs say that they can pass for humans, but much of the artwork for Sylphs (for example, the female in Bestiary 2) show them with elf-like pointed ears.

So, which is it?

Shattered Star is a sequel of sorts for Rise of the Runelords, so keep that in mind:)

honestly i would put those three in my top five APs group
so you can't go wrong with any of them:)
the easiest i've found for beginners is honestly Mummy's Mask:)

and since you didn't ask for it, here are my top five APs as of right now (subject to change)
1. Skull & Shackles
2. Reign of Winter
3. Shattered Star
4. Mummy's Mask and Rise of the Runelords (tie)
5. Iron Gods (only because i don't have the whole path, but based on first two books its in a tie with Shattered Star)

Skull & Shackles?

Were not the ship to ship combat rules a problem?

Hero points are a good idea- a very limited resource, but they can save a character's butt if luck is poor. I was happy to have used them in my Kingmaker game.

Hero Points can also be a good stand in for Mythic, if you want to run Wrath of the Righteous - but reject the Mythic rule system.

The smart money is on Alfonso Ribeiro if he can overcome his injuries; else it will be Bethany Mota.

However the Technology Guide has a laser torch that functions as a one-handed melee weapon so at least you got your lightsaber.

Jedi feel more like a psionic than psychic class.

I figured. There really needs to be a "Psychic Warrior" class - kind of like the Magus is a Fighter & Wizard hybrid.

The Occultist is kind of like that, but is too dependent of foci. The Kinetisist's powers are too limited.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

While Paizo can't "officially" confirm this, but does the Psychic work as a Jedi type class?
