I was thinking that the minute I read the line "the priests of the demigods break the tie" followed by Hel's "I do seem to have a certain rapport with some of them, I must admit."

That would definitely explain the need for minions.

Which maintains what I have said, that I would give a hard coin for Rich to write an AP.

And would give 1/3 my soul for him to DM it for me.

Again, the rule here is that there are NO rules, not even that one.

That being said, if we really want to nitpick (as gamers wont to do) The Poetic Elder Edda (which in itself is the modern attribution for an unnamed collection of Old Norse poems rather than a name given to them when they were first created) does NOT list Fenrir as a "god" but rather the scion on Loki (who is both jötunn and "god" being the son of Fárbauti and Laufey). By union with the jötunn Angrboða, Loki sires monsters the Nine Worlds fear. Loki is the father of Hel, the wolf Fenrir, and the world serpent Jörmungandr. Only Hel can take up the mantle of "god."

By strict 1st Edition D&D rules, as of the original Deities and Demigods Fenrir cannot have followers who can cast spells above 2nd level as Fenrir himself (itself?) cannot grant them.

(How come no one has mentioned that Nergal, who was worshiped by the vampiric lizard, is a Babylonian god?)

Fun fact, in Gary Gygax own original Greyhawk campaign, even while he had his own pantheon, some of the Norse gods did make an appearance due to actions of player characters, so both "divine intervention" and the Norse pantheon have Long standing ties to the games we all love.

That's....actually remarkably powerful. I saw this stuff in the force unleashed video game but I'd never thought Yoda or any of the movies' force users were ACTUALLY that capable.

Well, again to be fair, I said TIE fighter, not entire TIE Wing, or singular Star Destroyer Captain, not the entire bridge crew. Keep in mind Yoda can spend a Force Point and all his dice DOUBLE. AT 28D6 he will still hit a 50 target number. I can work out the math on another thread if you like.

Full disclosure

Spoiler:
I was an editor and contributor for Star Wars West End Games, and West End Games was the go to for all the Expanded Universe writers from Zhan to Stackpole before there was a Google, Star Wars.com or Wookieepedia. In fact West End Games was the Wookieepedia of the day, I would say 80 percent of early Wookieepedia fact came from us.

The guy who made it cannon that there are 72 TIEs carried in an Imperial Star Destroyer? That was me. The guy who defined what a Grand Moff was. Ditto.

The name "Magic: The Gathering," well that was Vic Wertz, but he is a Star Wars fanboy.

Well to be fair, with Control 14D and Alter 10D Yoda could pull a TIE fighter from orbit if he wanted to. Or, using all three, and if he did not mind gaining a Dark Side point, mentally take command of the Captain on a bridge of Star Destroyer with a good chance his crew would not be aware of the take over.

As of the Battle of Endor, Luke Skywalker had

Lightsaber 8D +1
Starfighter Piloting X Wing 9D+2
Starfighter Gunnery 7D +1

Force Skills

Control 10D
Sense 8D
Alter 7D

In comparison Yoda at the time of The Empire Strikes Back

Force Skills

Control 14D+
Sense 13D+
Alter 10D+

No taint from the Dark Side

I would assume Luke at the time of The Force Awakens may be in some ways nearing that level but not anywhere near surpassing Yoda's capabilities.

NOT!

I'm surprised there was no thread for this movie.

I have been a member of these forums since the days of the much beloved Dragon and Dungeon magazines, and I would like to think I try to fair with my assessments of popular culture as much as one can be.

I would never consider myself a "hater," in fact I am more forgiving than most especially when in comes to honoring nostalgia.

That being said, this movie is a pure condemnable stinker.

I saw the red carpet premier last night with the director and major stars for free, and I still want my money back.

I normally leave before the end of the movie screenings and hate to do so because I work in the evenings. Man was I so happy I had to go to work.

While I like almost the entire cast individually and I will bet most of them will continue on to become bigger starts, I think this movie is such a waste of talent, possibilities, and lackluster for some of the most Iconic super heroes ever created.

(As an aside I hate Dr. Doom in this movie, and this PAINS me, there are very few villains from my childhood as Iconic as Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader, Doom was always close in that billing and here I almost feel sorry for him. As a child when we played 'cops and robbers" I played Von Doom and would blast cops with nary a thought.)

Hopefully the young stars of this failed franchise, who are quite talented, will rise from the ashes of this burnout soon enough.

The trailer may very well be better than 90 percent of the movie, I grade the trailer a C and the actual movie a D and that's me being gentle.

I am very sad with this reboot, maybe in a decade they will finally get it right.

Please do not waste your time and money on this pile of Bantha Poodoo.

Behold Ma'al Drakar, the Dracopocalypse:

Party annihilation

Even before the Kickstarter launch I heard that "Tiamat" was going to be part of this set.

As I had already spent $660 on Bones 1 and 2 and not one of those minis has been painted as yet I was hoping I would not go overboard with this set.

Fat chance of that happening now. I'm in for TWO of of those Reaper "miniature" version of Tiamat. And a host of add ons, I hope to still keep in under what I spent in previous years. Reaper always times their crowdfunding near the of Gencon and my game expenditures hit absurd amounts at this time.

"Hello I am Baron Arem Heshvaun, and I am an addict."

QUESTION

While that Ma'al Drakar is Tiamat by any other name, I was looking through them, are any of the other Dragons in the set supposed to be her adversary Bahamut the Platinum Dragon, Draco Paladine?

I would love to hear what people think of this trailer and the movie BEYOND Joker and Harley.

I really like how the team looks. Deadshot's costume is on point. And I'm really excited to see Wil's performance. Killer Croc looks awesome, so great to see him in live-action movie. And my favorite Squad member Captain Boomerang looks just like the scumback he is. Next trailer better have him throwing some 'rangs! Also interesting to see how Slipknot fights in the movie. He seems to have some kind of rope-gun. Batman should sue. Really digging the Katana's look as well. She oozes threat and danger and I love that.

Amanda Waller also looks good, and her attitude towards the criminals is spot on. They are just tools for her.

But that excerpt was NO Heir to The Empire.

I'll handily take writers from West End Games D6 Star Wars over this.

But that's just it.

Now that DC is putting forth their A game and setting up their Cinematic Universe, Marvel will be forced to shore up their upcoming movies and make sure that their story lines are just as just as compelling, provoking and innovative.

Marvel can't rest on their past laurels, impressive as they may be.

It's almost like the Golden Age of comics part deux.

DC and Marvel are in the gladiatorial pit voraciously fighting for our entertainment. WE ARE CAESAR, it's up to us to give a thumbs up or thumbs down.

Bit of Trivia.

It is attributed to England’s King George III, who supposedly wrote in his diary, “Nothing of importance happened today” on July 4. But if it sounds like a historical irony too good to be true, that’s because it is.

NPR discovered five years ago that George never even kept a diary and the myth stemmed from an actual diary entry of King Louis XVI of France from 1789.

Star Wars Shattered Empire

This bit sounds EXACTLY like West End Games from 1987 and everything after that, up to Wookiepedia. So maybe EU is not that off base.

Emperor Palpatine’s twenty-year reign of terror new found prosperity and New Order came to an abrupt and fiery end in the skies above the forest moon of Endor. A decisive victory for the Rebel Alliance, to be sure, but even with the loss of its leadership, the Empire’s Moffs and regional governors retained their hold on important systems from the Core to the Outer Rim, thanks to the might of the Imperial Starfleet. Now, with a power vacuum atop the Empire, those Moffs will jockey for position and control, and the heroes of the Rebel Alliance will soon discover that a wounded and fractious Empire may be more dangerous than any threat they faced before!

I just saw a screening. I must say its good to see Arnold Schwarzenegger on the big screen again. I was really hoping for a win for him.

It is in a way, at least in part. A lot of the cinematic cues for those who watched the original Terminator, and Terminator 2. I can't say I remember the others in the series too well.

There are some plot holes, and the acting is about what you would expect from an action movie, but the movie is still a nostalgia filled romp ride with some good hard action scenes.

My best advise? Do Not watch the trailer, at all. It gives away some good plot points, not sure why they did that. Marketing must think the movie going public needed more push to see the movie and in the process gave too much away.

It's still a fun enough quick ride for us getting long in the tooth, a 7.5 out of 10 for some action scenes and funny moments, almost all featuring Arnold.
