From the tiny female minority, god bless you for the male dryads. ;)

I'll add we have enough demons/devils for now. What we need are more angelic/divine creatures to balance that out.

1. More things that can appear on other planets in the solar system.
2. More monsters for the planes
3. More things for Numera (more mechanical things).
4. More fay. Way more fay. Make stuff up.
5. More original, creative monsters. I suggest alcohol and sugar for brain storming.
6. More dragons. You can never have too many dragons.

I'm just coming to beg for Paizo to put out several sets of miniatures for some of the less common races. Like 5 or 6 minis of the same race in 1 pack for players who want to play races like Tiefling, Aasimar, Catfolk, Tengu, etc. These are races that have almost no representation in miniature form. We're talking things like fins, horns, tails, wings, etc. I can't tell you how fast I'd buy small sets for player characters with these races.

And dear god, can we get more male tieflings. There's been some awesome art that just needs to be made into a mini.

Okay. Thoughts on the movie. Warning. This is very, very long.

I felt the same way about Loki until I realized Loki wasn't a chump; this has all been a Xanatos Gambit. Loki actually got what he wanted: access to Asgard and to the gauntlet in Odin's vault. Thanos might even have helped him set this game up and the heroes fell for it; they think they won. And yes, he played Natasha like a violin. He wanted her to know part of the plan because Hulk was the weakest point for the group, and he wanted them busy fighting each other. Hench the smirk we see when Loki hears them fighting. In the end everyone didn't worry about what Loki's real motives were. Big mistake. Thanos might not know about the gauntlet, but Loki does.

Like a stage magician, Loki spent the movie obfuscating everything with paper thin lies, and our heroes were too dumb to question him suddenly trying to take over earth (except for Tony whom Loki immediately distracted when his line of questioning got close to the truth). Coulson and some of the others (Tony) gave hints they realized Loki wasn't serious or something fishy was up, but no one tried to find out what that was. Thor should have realized something was up, but he didn't.

Loki is Marvel's consummate Xanatos Gambler. When he's wandering around acting all vulnerable, it's usually a lie. He's not known as the god of lies for no reason. He lies most of the time. Nothing he said was his goal was really his goal in this film.
