I made an order on the 9th of August, and it is still pending. Order # 1948450. Will it ship soon?


I was wondering what the shipping for a single comic would be?

83 total miniatures. I did not track by box, and incidentally my boxes were neither taped nor shrinkwrapped. Looks like these will have to be sold from behind the counter at any retail place.

If you are interested, I took a quick video of the unboxing of the case and slapped it together.

I'm very pleased with the product, and happy to say I got at least one of everything in the set. Nice work on the miniatures, I like that the material is a little stiffer than the WotC plastic.

These look really useful. Could I also get a copy of that word file?

Very nice, makes me wish I still had a group to DM.

Looks very slick. I can't really slide it into what I am working on now, but I may well in the future.


Wrong forum and redundant. Apologies.


Well, I posted another thread because I missed this one in my search of the site. Apologies for that.

My name is Kane Leal and I am asking you to consider me for Ennies Judge. Many of you have probably already looked over the applicants and formed your first impressions of us all. I know several of them from forums and others by reputation and they are all fine applicants. I'd like to introduce myself formally and offer myself up for any questions you might have.

I'm an avid gamer who is willing to play just about anything that I come across. Of late most of my gaming has been fantasy, but I am really feeling the itch for something science fiction.

I've never been an Ennies Judge, nor have I been to GenCon. I come into this with no preconceived notions or biases about the process or the Ennies themselves.

So, go ahead guys, ask your questions, verbally abuse me, or otherwise have fun.


I'm starting up a thread for any of the candidates to use if they like. I'll start things up by introducing myself.

Unfortunately, this order was missing a book. I did not recieve:

Etherscope RPG (OGL) Softcover, IMPGG17625, for $1.99

It is listed on the manifest, but is not present with the other items.


The correct book is in my hands! Thank you for the extra something something you tossed in. :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, you did it again. I recieved my shipment today, and inside was the Paizo Gamemastery Guide, which is thethird copy to be shipped to me, only the first of which I ordered (part of my subscription, actually). What I ordered was the Green Ronin Advanced Gamemasters Guide.

If you will send me the correct book with a return mailing slip, I will be glad to send you this one back. I would prefer that this not be done with my next subscription shipment however.


Thank you kindly. I will give my spare copy of the Gamemastery Guide to someone in the group. Maybe then I won't always be running the game.


Argh! Not cool. I *JUST* ordered replacement magnets for mine. Would have been much better to buy a new one :(


Crap. Twice I've run side adventures in Kaer Maga, too bad this wasn't out sooner. Well, I'll just have to find a way to get my kingmaker group over to Varisia.


Every time a rope is mentioned, no matter how significantly, someone quotes Boondock saint. "You and your f'ing rope".


This is very cool, Tiger Lilly. I will have to find a way to get this into my campaign. Thanks for offering it up for the peanut gallery.


I'm a little torn. I like the Pathfinder Beta very much, but generally give my players free reign with 3rd party material and the WotC splatbooks. I do reserve some veto power for obviously broken bits, but rarely excercize it. In any event, having the rules closer to 3.5 allows me to utilize more rules with less chance of overlapping rules. On the other hand I like that Pathfinder beta feels like it really doesn't NEED much of that to remain interesting at higher levels. I will definitely be getting it as soon as it is available but I always have a wait an see attitude as far as using any ruleset wholecloth. If it doesn't address my particular issues well enough I may continue my everproject of making a d20 system variant specific for my style of gaming and campaign.


Primarily I play because it is fun.

I have always enjoyed the genres of science fiction, fantasy, superheroes and pulp. It started with Star Wars and the Hobbit, and all the sword and sorcery blasters and babes movies of the 80's. My exposure and taste has expanded and refined a little over the years, but this love of the fun has always been a large part of it.

Gaming allowed me to experience these genres not as an observer but as part of an interactive experience that combined the pure fun of stick sword fighting with drama and real story elements.

I've done "serious" gaming, beer and pretzle dungeon crawls, LARPs, games that were more like an ad lib drama troupe, games where people laughed so hard they wet the chair, and once so scary the girl left the game and would not play in that story again. Through all these experiences my goal has been not only to entertain but to explore the genre to the best of the medium's ability. My games give the players a chance to play the hero, to live their fantasies, to experience pain and catharsis, and see their actions change the very world.

I play to experience this with friends.


My players came up with this crazy idea to hold a bazaar at their newly founded town of Prosperity, which in our campaign is the boomtown that has replaced Turtleback Ferry and is built just outside Fort Rannick. This is their way of getting out of having to travel all over to sell of the extreme amount of gear and Thassilonian relics they have picked up over the campaign. They have used Teleport to get to most of the major cities, send out some feelers and basically advertise that they are willing to part with the loot.

There are of course going to be complications. The Darklight Sisterhood is going to make a less than friendly appearance, and not every person capable of making out here will be interested in "buying". Some other campaign oriented events are all going to transpire, but basically the fan will be shat upon during the session.

What I would love to do is intersperse other groups characters into the events, so tell me about your groups so they can guest star in my game :D

I actually prefer that maneuvers don't have the 5% chance of auto-success. For things like grappling, it gets pretty silly.

If you don't mind, elaborate as to why? I see combat maneuvers like grappling as just another combat action. The 5% chance to automatically ignore armor and defenses from a sword attack is not much different in my mind to someone getting a lucky grip on the huge warrior.


I use cardstock terrain, tiles and buildings pretty extensively in my games, and a fair mix of prepainted and painted miniatures. I use cardstock miniatures only for convenience of mass numbers of enemies or in modern games, where I have a lack of traditional miniatures. I'd be happy to buy pdf's of the iconics and especially some of the AP specific monsters, but for any paper miniature I use I really need visibility from multiple angles is a must.

You don't necessarily have to draw the backside though, you could simply mirror the front side so that you sandwich fold the cardstock, glue, then mount. Alternatively you could do a three way fold, with each face printed three times, you would score it three times, fold and glue a tab, and then either fold under the mounting tabs or glue to a base. This has the advantage of being more stable, but a little more construction time.


Well, I guess I should start posting here to fill the gap
