*sigh* I think I'll just wait until Ultimate Pizza comes out, and ask the rest of my pizza-related questions then.

And I have a LOT.

Back to QFG. Fighter, mage, thief, paladin - which is your favorite? And what about the two odd children in the series - Trial by Fire and Dragon Fire? Did you ever play the QFG2 remake? And how disappointing did you find the conclusion of the series to be?

Of all the characters introduced on Gotham, I was most excited by 'Fish' Mooney. Carmine Falcone and Boss Maroni are destined to fall from their positions, Penguin is destined to rise to power, Jim Gordon is destined to become commissioner, Bruce is destined to become The Bat, etc. All of these people have their ends set in stone, and the only thing in question is how they get there. Since Ms. Mooney is original, she's free from this, and could have done anything, gone anywhere.

So it's a shame she's easily my least favorite character. It was bad enough when she was consistently pulling the wool over Falcone's eyes back in the city, but I can't immediately think of a good reason why she wasn't killed in the hospital basement, any number of times. She's badly written, verging on Villain Sue-levels of author favoritism. She seems to convince people to do what she wants, even though they probably know she's untrustworthy. She's not interesting. They've wasted their Jada Pinkett-Smith.

And now, with the way this last episode ended, it seems likely we won't get the line "Penguins feed on fish!" That feels like a huge miss.

I suspect it has something to do with the popularity of the given path. Runelords and Iron Gods are pretty awesome, while Second Darkness apparently has problems. I haven't run into those myself in my game on these boards, but I'm aware that the elves eventually come out as jerkfaces. Anyway, you know I'd have kept reading if you continued, NobodysHome, but I don't want to know spoilers for stuff coming up, so I can't follow it as closely as I did your Runelords or Wrath of the Righteous threads.

I'm definitely looking forward to hearing the ends of the Sandpoint Heroes' stories.

Crystal,

Thank you for The Divinity Drive! I can't wait until my PCs get to the Silver Mount and deal with the problems (read: horrible laser death) contained therein. Iron Gods was a blast from start to finish, and your adventure in particular is an awesome homage to Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. (No question here, just praise.)

Since everyone's asking about pizza alignments, I'll ask about one of my favorite pizzas from Old Chicago, the Thai Pie. Roasted chicken, mushrooms, red peppers, broccoli and Thai chili sauce, topped with green onions, teriyaki, sesame seeds, mozzarella and cheddar. Based upon previous entries, I'm guessing it's leaning towards something Evil, just not sure about the other side of the alignment.

Hmmmm, color me interested. Took a quick look at the active PCs, you've currently got a magus and a bard, so it sounds like the arcane side of things is covered, and skills as well. Probably needs another fighty type, so let me look into that.

True story: I nearly broke the economy of the game when I ran the original Temple of Elemental Evil in 3E. The adventure describes the doors to the Temple as being made of bronzewood, and they immediately saw dollar signs. I ran some basic numbers based on the size of the doors and how much they would be worth...and it came to roughly a quarter million gold pieces. I ended up having the priests of Obad-Hai give them elemental bane weapons for free in exchange.

Short version: if you do this, have a reason why that PCs can't just loot the doors, sell them, and retire.

That being said, the cinematography was amazing. Others have mentioned the hallway scene, but I think one of my favorites was the episode open where they show Fisk's morning routine.

True, bit the real value of that and when its repeated later in the episode is as a buildup for the pay off for his changed morning routine at the end of the episode.

The cherry on top is that they spent a good long while giving us a meticulous look at Fisk dressing, not once, but twice. And then we get a meticulous look at Fisk the Elder being undressed in almost the same fashion. Very well done.

I can't say it's my favorite MCU property, but it's a very good show, and completely different than anything in the MCU to date. I...may have watched the whole thing from start to finish on Sunday.

Habe's Sanatorium (We'll Cure Someone Someday!):

Caizarlu plus four zombies seems weak, but don't discount stinking cloud. The zombies have the same miss chance as the PCs will, but they are immune to the nausea. His best play is to wait until they're engaged with the zombies and drop the cloud on top of the melee. He then skirts around and uses touch spells through his spectral hand to take down anyone that flees the cloud.

Echoing the general sentiment here. A great deal of Runelords is selling the PCs on Sandpoint, and making them feel like they are the ones responsible for keeping that town (and by extension, all of Varisia) safe. If one character isn't interested in civilized lands, then you've got a problem. It's the same idea as running Skull & Shackles, and finding someone who isn't interested in turning pirate. It's sort of the central conceit, and if you better have a good answer when the DM rightly asks you why your character would be involved.

I understand that androids and aliens would be considered property and experiment subjects, but how would your run this? It'd be pretty hard to get past the gate with an android in the party, even more so if Isuma is accompanying the party.

There's all sorts of ways to sneak an android past, from mundane sources like Disguise checks and sneaking over the walls, to magical solutions like illusions and shape changing magics. In fact, by that time, the PCs should have any number of solutions to get past the gates. I'd rather pose the question to the PCs, and see how they go about solving the problem.

Isuma's a bit harder, given her alien physiology, but the answers are largely the same.

So, how intolerant towards androids is Iadenveigh? They already eschew tech, how would they feel about a synthetic person? Would they shun them, giving them a wide berth like the Varisians? Or would they treat the android like they would a robot?

Coming from OtherSHIELD's perspective - sure, Coulson's in control of his faculties now, but how does he know that he hasn't gone dormant again? He's compromised, and you can't have someone that compromised in charge of a spy agency.

We also don't know what they experienced on that boat, but whatever it was, it was bad enough for them to think that killing metahumanity was better than letting them run free. Thoughts? Canon character, kept in captivity? Earth powers, maybe, which would make holding someone in an aircraft carrier at sea a great plan?

I really appreciate that they've done their best to make OtherSHIELD as sympathetic as possible. Currently, they're rivals, not villains, and their opposition to Coulson's SHIELD is really fascinating to watch. They might have overstepped their bounds by firing on Skye, but it all depends on what Colderon's orders were - did EJO's character give him orders to kill Skye (separate from Bobbi's orders), or did he overstep them himself?

You sprinkle hints at earlier episodes that Simmons might be inclined to react that way. As it sits, Simmons has been exposed to super powers many times and has even very nearly died from contact with alien tech and she never leaned towards developing mutantophobia even a little bit. That makes it seems a little bit contrived that her stance now changed by events that were not really different in magnitude, but merely in results.

Seconded.

When Simmons tried to kill herself would have been a great opprtunity to show or at least have the character develop giftedaphobia. Instead as long as bad stuff happened to strangers. She was good. Once someone who she was close to and had feelings for died. Then the giftedaphobia suddenly is part of her character. Mind you in a world where there is people with powers both gifted and non-gifted. Targeting gifted makes little sense imo. Scorch, Black Panther and Donnie Gill. The first two get a free pass on racism. Gill gets persecuted. It's not like gifted and non-gifted have a tattoo on their forehead that make them stand out. If Marvel really wanted to show racism properly then the fear would not be towards Inhumans and/or gifteds. It would be against everyone and anyone who had superpowers gifted or not.

Fixed all that for you.

Which AP villain would you say would be the best disposed to do an evil laugh about their plans and stuff? I know usually the protagonists aren't present in the exposition scenes those laughs normally accompany so the odds of the villain doing so in front of the PCs is slim, but I'm curious all the same.
Karzoug. He kinda does this already a few times during the AP; once at the end of part 4 and again at the end of part 5.

What's his evil laugh like? Subtle chuckling? Loud and bombastic "MOO-HA-HAing?" Insane cackling of the variety that Mark Hammill built his post-Star-Wars career on? I'm curious and if I ever run this AP myself I wanna do it justice.

I suppose the Runelords ARE Golarion's supervillains.

I do find it fascinating how our tastes change in so short a timespan as fifty years. Add to this the fact that cinema has only been an art form for a bit over a century, and Bond has been with it for half of that time. The story of how cinema's art form evolved, and how we tell stories with moving pictures, can be gleaned by watching the Bond films, and seeing how they capture the zeitgeist of the era.

That said, I'm sure they'd find Dalton and Craig monstrous in the same way I find Connery's Bond reprehensible. Hell, Dalton's actions in License to Kill are closer to the Craig films than Moore, and I think that's the real reason he didn't get to stay on very long. Dalton's Bond was twenty years too early. (Dalton's Bond, by the way, is CN. "You hurt Felix. I will now visit that hurt upon you and your organization tenfold.")

According to the James Bond film tailors in London, at 6' 2" Timothy Dalton is the tallest of all the Bond actors. The tailors who have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years claim the following heights for each of the other Bond actors: Sean Connery 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, George Lazenby 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, Roger Moore 6' 1" without shoes and Pierce Brosnan 6' 1" without shoes.

It's going to be tough to top Spook's analysis. Fortunately, I have seen On Her Majesty's Secret Service somewhat recently, so I can talk about Bond!Lazenby's alignment.

He's a bit more selfless than Connery's Bond, as he gets involved with the Contessa when she tries to run into the sea and kill herself. I can hardly imagine Connery's Bond caring that much about a woman he doesn't know and doesn't have information or access that he needs for the mission. I'd put him closer to Good than Neutral, just for this alone. As for Law/Chaos, it's harder to say, since we only have one film to draw on for inspiration, so I'd lean towards Neutral for that reason. NG.

Oh, and I'd say Connery's Bond is a well-intentioned monster. NE, considering how little remorse he shows for the sexual violence he visits upon Pussy Galore in Goldfinger and Patricia Fearing in Thunderball. It's really hard to watch those scenes today, doubly so when the women seem to come around to admire Bond for what he forced upon them.

As sad as this is, I never anticipated that the loss of $50M would garner much notice from the governor. We've rattled our lightsabers, and I'm sure we'll follow through on this threat, but I suspect Governor Pence won't miss the extra money the con generated.

I'm not sure how big the crossover between Age of Ultron will be, honestly. I mean, they'll talk about it, sure, but I don't know if it's as game-changing as Winter Soldier was. Still, it gets us on the road to Civil War, which they've done exceedingly well thus far in setting up in the show.

That's my takeaway as well, Fromper. It's most likely to grab a fighter or some other big beatstick that has a stack of hit points, so its constrict ability probably won't kill the character. In my game, I was describing its tactics pretty gruesomely, as it grabbed the elven fighter soundly by her neck with one pincer in the first round and by the other in the second. It didn't get a chance to do a third, but it was certainly likely to tear her head off if it got that far.

Yay, foodie stuff!

1. The Churrasco.

2. Initially divided between the Churrasco and the Mojo Cerdo, as both main dishes sound tantalizing. The sides, however, push me to the Churrasco, as the Carrot Jalapeno Vichy sounds far more interesting to me than simple sautéed spinach. I have a little bit of sticker shock, since it is the most expensive thing on the menu, but cows are expensive, but skirt steak is cow on the cheap that doesn't sacrifice the flavor of good steak.

3. Escabiche y Pulpo.

4. Because octopus be nasty. If I wanted to eat rubber, I'd chew on a garden hose. Honestly, I don't mind buying something I could make at home - just because I make a mean chili doesn't mean I don't want to try someone else's chili. So while I would probably order the Churrasco over the Arroz con Pollo, for instance, I would definitely try some of a friend's if they ordered it. My dealbreaker would be ingredients that I can't stand, and pretty much the only thing on this menu I would reject out of hand is the octopus salad.

I think that makes a hell of a lot of sense, Dire Elf. With Civil War not far off, I think we heard the first shots of it in that last episode. "WE need to be protected from [I]HER![/b]" That's the dividing line right there. Besides, Stark has Fury's right hand woman, Maria Hill, working in Stark Industries now. She'd be the perfect person to run an op against Coulson.

What is it that Fury's holding in there? My guess is the gifted list.
