Erik was in New York and shared pics of the conclusion to your campaign where he played Ostog the Unslain, congratulations on completing the campaign.
With Mad Max proving to be a hit are you itching to run a post apocalyptic road warrior game?
Did you ever play the original Car Wars game?
George Miller directed the entire Mad Max action franchise, noted for its profound violence. Ironically, did you know he is also the director of three family friendly movies: the second of the Babe movies, Babe: Pig in the City (1998), and both Happy Feet movies, Happy Feet (2006) and Happy Feet Two (2011)?
Did you know the jacket worn by Tom Hardy is the exact same one worn by Mel Gibson in the original trilogy, although heavily worn?
Some fun facts for you about Mad Max Fury Road
The movie was shot in sequence.
The flame-shooting guitarist is Australian artist/musician Sean Hape, better known as the artist Iota. In an interview on Vice, he said the guitar weighed 132 pounds, and shot real gas-powered flames, which he controlled using the whammy bar.
The portion of the blood-bag information tattoo being painfully needled into Max's back at The Citadel that was completed before he escapes reads: Day 12045, ht 10 hands, 180 lbs, No Name, No Lumps, No Bumps, Full Life Clear, Two good eyes, No Busted limbs, Piles OK, Genitals Intact, Multiple Scars, Heals Fast, O-NEGATIVE, HIGH-OCTANE, UNIVERSAL DONOR, Lone Road Warrior Rundown on The Powder Lakes V8, No Guzzoline, No Supplies, ISOLATE PSYCHOTIC, Keep Muzzled...
Director George Miller has written a background story for The Doof Warrior, the heavy metal musician, playing the flame-shooting electric guitar on The Doof Wagon.
Max's sawed-off shotgun misfires twice, as it did in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
To prepare themselves to go into battle, ready to sacrifice their lives for Immortan Joe, the War Boys spray their lips and teeth with a silver substance, very much like common spray paint. Both the War Boys and Immortan Joe often speak about this as though it is a religious ritual, saying that it will allow them to "...arrive at the gates of Valhalla, shiny and chrome". However, in a May 2015 interview with CraveOnline, actor Hugh Keays-Byrne, who plays Immortan Joe, said that this practice, which the War Boys think is purely ritualistic, actually involves the inhalation of "...a very euphoric drug" that keeps the War Boys high and suicidally devoted to Immortan Joe. Another clue to the spray's narcotic properties is the fact that "chrome" and "chroming" are Australian slang terms for inhalant abuse. Writer/director George Miller said that he got the idea for this from Australian filmmaker David Bradbury's 1981 Vietnam War documentary "Front Line", in which Cambodian soldiers preparing for battle suspend small jade figurines of Buddha from their mouths with little straps.
This is the second Mad Max featuring Hugh Keays-Byrne. He played the villain Toecutter in Mad Max (1979).
The movie was originally planned as a sequel to Mad Max (1979) and a prequel to The Road Warrior. It is believed that Immortan Joe would have been the Toe Cutter, who survived the accident in Mad Max but was badly injured, resulting in his body being battered and broken. Also, Rictus Erectus was supposed to survive the accident at the end of the film, with a broken neck and some burns, and he would have become Lord Humungous.
There is a theory that Mad Max in this film is actually the Feral Kid from the second film, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981). Max does not speak very much in this film, and he grunts a lot like the Feral Kid. He also has a music box, like the one that Max gives the Feral Kid in the second film.
At one point Toast (Zoë Kravitz) is seen playing with the innards of a small music box, a reference to Max giving a similar device to The Feral Kid (Emil Minty) in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.
In the last scene of the movie, Furiosa's eye is swollen shut as a result of injury, the same as Max's is at the end of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.
The film editor, Margaret Sixel, is director George Miller's wife. When she asked her husband why he thought she should do it as she had never edited an action film before, Miller replied, "Because if a guy did it, it would look like every other action movie."
After the War Rig is driven off the platform and the platform begins to rise as it is drawn back up into The Citadel, a lone woman can be seen standing in the center. In the previous wide-angle shot of the crowd, The Wretched were shown begging for a place in Immortan Joe's coterie. This woman, played by Debra Ades, was likely brought aboard to be used as a breeder.
This is director George Miller's first R-rated movie since The Witches of Eastwick (1987).
On April 3, 2015, Tom Hardy announced he would sign on for 3 more Mad Max films.
Rosie Huntington who plays a pregnant favored breeder and I were personal friends and remained close even at the height of her modeling career. Alas after getting the role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon she let a lot of her friendships in New York drift apart.
This film is considered an Ozploitation movie, an Australian genre and/or Australian exploitation movie.
At least four members of the cast have been involved in comic book films. Tom Hardy starred as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Nicholas Hoult starred as Hank/Beast in X-Men: First Class (2011), Zoë Kravitz who starred as Angel in X-Men: First Class (2011), and Josh Helman who starred as William Stryker in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). Hoult also starred in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and will star in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).
Compiled from IGN and IMDB, and one personal fact from me.
You would think the flame shooting guitarist would give the hunting pack a morale bonus.
Please state the APs you run as a DM and those you were a player in.
Please mention the APs you finished through to the end and those you are currently running as well as those that you started but had to shelve.
Please mention you are getting ready to run or be apart of (wishful thinking does not count here).
Lastly of those APs that you did complete which was the one you enjoyed the most and why.
Still very nicely done!
Our immediate group has only completed Age of Worms, Rise of the Runelords, Council of Thieves and Shattered Star. Additionally we took our PFS characters from level 1 to 16 using Pathfinder modules.
We did start Wrath of the Righteous, Carrion Crown and Crimson Throne, and hope to continue those.
What about Shackled City, Savage Tide, Second Darkness, Council of Thieves, Legacy of Fire and Jade Reagent, you did not mention those.
We should start a poll of witch one we have all played.
You're in luck We be Goblins Free! comes out in a month.
And I think the pdf may be free ;)
Actually for awhile I had a group on Sunday and some of those players also played on a Wednesday game and between the 2 groups we played all the AP's
You have played through all the APs?!
That's saying a lot, did you cast extended Time Stop?
Please tell me how you did this I wish to find time like you!
[Flashback thirty one years ago]
On three, in six, lies nine — But none shall ever see
I always loved this poem. I don't recall why that one line seemed so fanciful to me, I think I first saw it when I was 12, it was the first time I told the DM via a passed note, "hey, you know what? I am going to betray the party"
[bonus points if you know the source of the poem]
I had enough of these so called "hero" grave robbers who have to butt into and meddle their way into the affairs of others, with their winsome valor, self diluted righteousness, and gallant daring do.
Its time to set aside the spineless virtuous meek kneed, the suffocating press of vibrant honor bound and the ethical moral purposeless cuckolds.
Come forth ye Anti Heroes, Anti Paladins, Black Hearted Rogues, Sycophantic Knaves, Fell Necromancers, Spurned Lovers, True Despots, Whispering Tyrants, Evil Masterminds, Corpulent Plague Daemon Summoners, Unrepentant Slavers, Oath Breakers, False Prophets, Grandfathers of Assassins, Nizari cult members, Sith Lords, Fallen Angels, Undead fanboys, Fox News Analysts and Lawyers.
Arise then and make yourselves known.
It's time to dash the ale and biscuits with Milk of the Poppy.
It's time to wake the orphans and sharpen the guillotine.
It's time to line the Czar's family up against the wall.
It's time to build an Empire.
It's time find the One Ring and Bind them all.
It's time to be the bully in the playground once more!
Pleased to meet you.
Hope you guess my name.
in Sandman, he had slipped enough in power that Hell was now being rulled by a Triumvirate with him, Baal, and Geryon, I think.
Politics, even in Hell there is politics.
Your 1st Edition knowledge is seeping into you DC Lazar, those are a Duke of Hell and Archfiend respectively.
The Triumvirate was Lucifer, Beelzebub, and Azazel.
Lucifer they have here seems a little too jovial and rather ... underwhelming in sheer force of Will.
My idea of Lucifer, based on Sandman is he is walking Charisma personified.
Hitler would swoon.
They also missed a golden opportunity not to make him a blonde, I mean if he is in LA he needs to be a blonde. Like a young Sting or Bowie.
Speaking of which, I think this generation is long overdue for their Sting or Bowie.
Have you seen the previews for DCs new movies? They are trying to out grimdark 40K
How do you out grimdark 40K?
I don't think that's even plausible. In 40K, on a good day, you only lose 1/2 of a whole inhabited planet.
For DC to compete, Darkseid would have to fall in love and adopt Krypto the Superdog, turn from his conquering ways, then at the end of the movie we get a version of Old Yeller.
