Gamers may start scratching their heads about how exactly Callum Lynch fits into the game world.

Michael Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film version.

Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.

Also starring Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave), and Ariane Labed (Before Midnight), cameras start rolling for Creed on Monday. Filming is scheduled in Malta, London, and Spain.

Actually, the stormtroopers on the cover are from the original trilogy. And the Falcon is still in its original state

I caught that as well, the magazine you quoted does have the new Stormtroopers inside the magazine, I think the artist's rendition of the covers were more because he was using stock footage for the cover art.

Hi all, I have a question regarding this campaign.

I was considering going with the Mesmerist class for this campaign we are starting, my DM said he would advise against that because giants later in the campaign are given a new feat that make them all but immune from Dominate type spells, which means the Mesmerist, Enchanter Specialists, and some Bards would lose a lot of their skill set.

While I certainly understand the reasoning of such a feat and would probably welcome it as a DM, I was wondering if the development team really went ahead and hamstringed a whole class(es) by giving giants what I would consider a rather powerful feat.

Did my DM just misinterpret the feat, or maybe just really is against the idea of a Mesmerist.

(My DM also shot down the idea of playing an Aasimar. Too "cheese sauce" for his game he said. I'm ok with that but the above giant feat gave me pause.)

This may already have been covered on these threads previously but I am avoiding spoilers and did not read the campaign threads, I appreciate the help.

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.

I am assuming you are going by this article from yesterday.

Very little has been said, Ren being the surname taken by the knights of this order, is almost akin to shorthand to evoke "Renaissance" or it could just be a Star Wars made up name.

This is a way to steer clear of The Rule of Two.

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.

While truly a grandiose a dream, it still pales in comparison to the longtime endeavors of Vic Wertz diverting and funneling funds from each Paizo product and license to quietly fund The Death Star III.

There are a hundred great character ideas on the forums, and yet Set's Mordecai always seemed very haunting to me.

And then despite such a Gothic Horror backstory, or maybe because of it, the character totally turned into a comedy of errors in game, which made me love him even more.

Amazon Prime comes out swinging.

Based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, set in 1962, 15 years after the end of World War II, an alternate history where the war lasted longer, and the Allies unconditionally lost, and America is divided among the Axis Powers.

Executively produced by no less than the man who brought us Blade Runner, Ridley Scott.

I got rid of Amazon Prime because I was spending too much on it, well I guess that was a short lived frugality.

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?
