A few of the cast members are missing. :(
Sorry about that Mr. President. Had to take a sick friend to the Dr.
Took my PS3 in to see if it can be repaired. Cheaper than replacing it and more likly to workm thay trying myself...

Oh well. Fingers crossed and looking forward.
Seriously, as one who pre-ordered this book back when it was first announced I am thrilled to see something being done with it. Bigger and better, more writing. All of this translates to (in my mind); not being released anytime soon, with soon being the first half of 2013, maybe even not the second half. Which is fine, I've waited two and a half years for this book. Another year and a half or whatever won't kill me. Your promise of communication is HUGE to those of us still holding out for Warlords.
There is one thing, concerning the artwork. I never cared for the cartoony second cover that was done for the book, but the original... The girl standing in the middle of a ruined metropolis with a make-shift stop sign shield... I would LOVE to see that piece in the book somewhere. If not the actual cover, maybe a full page piece inside. That was very cool piece and I'd hate to not see it again.
Just got an email that this project has been handed off to Super Genius Games.
Now maybe we can FINALLY see this sucker published without a bunch of smoke blown up our collective arses.
Go SGG! :-)
Great for filing in party gaps. If no one wants to play a cleric or a rogue, then it can be great. It gives the chance for the DM to have a little bit of investment in the PCs, beyond the norm. He just needs to be built and played in such a way that he is NOT a decision maker. Having his own opinion is cool, but should almost always defer to the rest of the party in a disagreement.
I've seen DMPCs done very well and very poorly. Best used with caution.
And of course, the previously mentioned, The Deed of Paksenarion.
The two authors give very different types of paladins, Paksenarion is more in lines with what most people would consider the 'traditional' D&D paladin, while Eddings actually deals with several different paladin orders and his heroes tend to be more 'ends justify the means' kind of paladins and tells a more gritty story.

Damn. So I haven't been here for awhile and this is the second 'new' post I see. Sorry about the car, Jess. Glad you weren't hurt.
Gearing up for The Lone Star Rally.
Should be a kick ass day, 50% chance of rain BE DAMNED!

Thanks, but Bill posted on the kickstarter update to try actually, you know, typing in the password. :-/
That did the trick.
Thanks again. You guys rock. You're awesome. Yadda yadda yadda. ;-)
I think the main pull of the book was simply nostalgia. I absolutely LOVED reading it, but that could well be due to the fact that I grew up in the eighties and most of the pop culture references triggered actual memories for me.
It certainly wasn't a GREAT piece of fiction, but I thought it was good, and certainly fun to read.
Wow. I was totally expecting some Scorpions there. System shock.

Hope he gets well soon. Rough thing to have to go through. My sister had similar issues a couple of months ago.
The worst part is that he and his sister both work for me and they lost their other sister to cancer earlier this year. This week has had both of them really upset and it isn't exactly the kind of situation where you can say, "Hey, don't worry it will all work out".
So, not counting tomorrow's game, by the time we have our next session I should have this beautiful beast in my clutches. So much easier to prep from a book than via PDFs and printouts.
One of my techs has been in the hospital since Thursday, he had a heart attack on the way in to work that morning...
The good news is that other than the one artery that was 80% blocked (successfully stinted)and one other minor blockage, his heart is very healthy.
Friggen exhausted. Only made about 1/4 of the actual ride before our Chapter President's bike had a break down. We all pulled off and went to get a trailer to get him home. Still got a decent amount of riding in. About 140 miles.
Getting ready for a charity ride.
Gonna be an awesome day for a ride. Good friends, loud pipes, hotrods and badass bikes. All for a damn good cause. What more could you ask for?
Well, besides a backrest. ;)
I was some unknown number of miles out to sea for my 21st birthday.
Beats the hell out of sniffing butts...

Started running it this past Sunday. It's awesome! The PCs have explored a good bit of country side around Their starting base of operations. Had several instances of negative hitpoints. One major tactical blunder on my part that was definitely an advantage to the 'good guys'. Can't wait for session two in two weeks. Hopefully I'll have the dead tree by then.
Interesting and all but it would be nice to see some previews for products that are coming out this month or next month.
Since the Mythic Playtest document will be released this month or next... that's exactly what this is.
