The thing is, aside from those who are already named, the AP assumes the rest of the crew you get is made up of nameless mooks. And unless I do something special with them, even the named NPCs just fade into the background. The notable exception is Kroop, who can serve as a knowledge base for the party for a while, yet.

Fair enough. Mooks they shall be, then.

I wish they had kept the book version of how Wade/Parzival gets the Quarter.

Maybe they had trouble getting the rights for that one?

I would like you to consider me for a spot in your campaign.

I am a long-time gamer and have been active on the Paizo Boards for over a decade.

I have participated in 3 Rise of the Runelords PbPs, but none of them got much farther than the opening scene/encounter at the Swallowtail Festival before the GM either indicated he/she couldn't continue the campaign or just stopped posting all together with no warning.

I am currently in 3 other PBPs on the boards, and I have an extremely reliable posting history (I have never flaked out on a campaign). Feel free to peruse the campaign tabs under my alias if you wish.

As far as character concepts, I am open to whatever is needed.

My favorite character classes to play are Bards and Inquisitors, but there is no character class I won't play.

There are three characters under my alias that were created in the recruitment process for Rise of the Runelords (two were selected for campaigns that died due to GM vanishing, and the other was not selected by the recruiting GM)

ETHAN SOWER is a cleric of Erastil who has recently come to Sandpoint for the Swallowtail Festival and the dedication of the new cathedral. Being the rural sort, Ethan sees Sandpoint as the "big city" and has come to town as a missionary to try and persuade these metropolitan types to embrace a simpler, purer lifestyle.

BLIKX (Beatrice Blackenshere) is a stormborn sorceress and local to Sandpoint. She works as a tattoo artist, and is considered to be something of a minor nuisance by the sheriff and local populace - mostly because she lives with her uncle, who doesn't exactly keep tabs on her most of the time.

ZOMERAAND is a universalist wizard who moved to Sandpoint shortly after the time of the fires and the Chopper thinking that is was a quiet little town where things weren't so hectic and loud. He has made a reputation for himself as a local know-it-all, and he spends a lot of time sitting in the book store with a small group of local bookworms trying to out do one another in knowledge of the obscure.

Let me know if any of these characters are of interest, or if you might be interested in me (as a player) but with a different character.

My sentiments exactly. I read the book when it first came out, and I loved it. Does it meet the definition of great literature? Heck no. It's pulp fiction, and frankly I don't care. It's still one of my favorite books.

I thought it was a cool idea for a story to include references to the decade of my youth in a way that made them important to characters 60 years in the future who are roughly the same age I was in the 1980's.

The book is a nostalgia trip for forty-something geeks, and I'm guessing that's all Ernest Cline intended it to be. He was probably as shocked as anyone that it got optioned for a film, and that Spielberg himself agreed to direct it.

Drew Brees and the Saints just seem to have the Panthers' number as of late.

At this point, it looks like our best chance of making the play-offs is to root for the Saints to take down Atlanta, too. That way, we have a better shot of getting the Wild Card slot.

Liberty's Edge

I figure the movie will have a lot of 90's and early 2000's references because the film's producers want to make sure to grab the millennial market share. People like me, who grew up in the 80's are the ones grocery stores now program their Musak selections for (sad but true).

For folks who have read the book already know that there was no race scene, no Napoleon riding a scorpion into battle, and none of the main characters had an avatar that looked like a orc-cyborg. These are changes the current crop of junior execs most likely demanded in lieu of the less visually exciting challenges the book provides.

In the end, movies and books are never one-to-one. They can't be. As much as I love the book, if it were made into a completely faithful adaptation, there will be quite a few scenes that would bore the audience to tears. Watching even two or three straight minutes of our hero trying to beat a first or second generation console game (or worse, a Commodore 64 or TRS-80 game) would annoy even those of us who grew up on them. Some other challenges are even less cinematic.

I mean, how much could you watch of:

Parzival quoting War Games or Monty Python's Holy Grail line by line and scene by scene?

One change I would be okay with, if Ernie and the other screen-writers thought of it:

Have the Rush 2112 Key Challenge be a game of Guitar Hero or Rock Band, where Parzival has to play 2112 up through "Discovery" to get the key, but only if the entire song is played to the end will the clue about the trick to opening the Crystal Gate be revealed. This scene would be a montage, of course. Again, no one (except me, perhaps) wants to watch 20+ minutes of a kid playing 2112 on a game controller shaped like a guitar.

The Panthers made a respectable showing against the Niners. Of course, the Niners may just be that bad this year.

Anyway, here's to hoping this season looks better than last.

I am cautiously optimistic about my Panthers this season.

Christian McCaffrey seems to have been an excellent choice. He has some serious agility and speed.

If Cam shows up this season, and we can stay healthy, we will be looking pretty competitive.

COMMANDO

When it came out, it was actually intended to be a serious action film designed to capitalize on the current desire to see Arnie kick ass and throw out one-liners. He does both of those things in this film, a lot. A whole lot.

However, it is soooooooo bad (script, acting, special effects, stunts, continuity errors out the wazoo, etc.) that if someone from a younger generation watched this movie for the first time, I would not be surprised if they mistook it for a lampoon on the entire action movie genre.

Anyway, it's still fun to watch, but Lordamighty, it's bad.
