    Tonight’s creation was a garlic sausage sandwich with sautéed onions and radish sprouts on toasted rosemary olive oil bread. Condiments were simple, just mayo and yellow mustard. Sides were moondrop grapes, carrots, Comte cheese, and pitted castelvetrano olives.

    first you state Hollywood doesn't really do new movies then you quantified: ones that make lots of money. Now you say name an original non MCU/DC movie that broke 500 million. So, I'm starting to think you're moving the goal post.

    I include the GM as a player for these purposes. If even that person is sitting there looking at the game and not able to understand the magic, that person won’t run the game.

    Designing a magic system that feels magical may be impossible. Personally, I’ve NEVER seen an RPG magic system that felt numinous, largely because they all have to fit into the RPG system and be understood by the players.

While they are made to look like angels, their faces are mostly fairly masculine, while angels are supposed to be androgynous. So in this case, “the point” would be making them more closely resemble what they are emulating. I could also see androgynous androids as being perceived as less...

    In Tahiti it looks like. Just saw a video that floats the idea that Fury died in Winter Soldier, and that activated some stand-in plan for his Skrull buddy to take over. Extra evidence is that when Fury says he can't eat bread that's not been cut in half, there's movie footage of him doing just that, thus, he was a SKrull at that time.

    You might want to check that: dwarves could be Clerics, too. (In addition, when the classes were added, they could be alchemists and psionicists as well.) Also, every race had at least one class in which their progression was unlimited. As I recall, that was Thief for dwarves. (Possibly all races.)

    No joke, but that’s kind of how my longest running core gaming group ran one campaign world. The most powerful PCs weren’t all spellcasters- not single-classed, anyway- and we’d run parties of different power levels through adventures. Most of the lower-tier PCs were related to the heavy hitters in some capacity. And we did rotary DMing, too.

Every gaming convention I’ve been to- GenCon isn’t one- has been overwhelmingly white and male, demographically. And that’s largely reflected in the game groups I’ve been a member of. Most times, I’m the only minority at the table, save one which was 1/3 each white, asian, and black. (And...

    it looks like Cameron's producing and has had a hand in the story, with Tim Miller directing it,whose directorial debut was Deadpool. The film's writing credits, as recognized by the Writers Guild of America are screenplay by David S. Goyer & Justin Rhodes and Billy Ray; story by James Cameron & Charles H. Eglee & Josh Friedman and Goyer & Rhodes.

Many of my favorite systems- HERO, 3.X, etc,- are great for simulating a wide variety of settings with little or no tweaking. But sometimes, a system designed for the express purpose of modeling a particular bit of fiction will simply do it better, more immersively. Other RPGs are lean and sleek, with just...

  • 11:40 AM - Herobizkit mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post Do Your PCs Make Your World?
    Dannyalcatraz: Please move to Canada and teach my fellow players how to think. They're both much younger than me and relatively new to tabletop; they're okay with "whatever" characters and fairly oblivious to setting. Being the oldest in the group, I usually (though not always) get saddled with being the Leader/spokesperson, and we usually end up following the campaign around rather than explore characters and NPCs... It does not help that I also have silly amounts of tabletop xp and am always looking for more interesting and unusual settings, where the others are content with whatever is placed before them. The DM is very decent, puts a lot of work into the presentation of his campaign settings and NPC's relevant to the players... but there's just something... well. Sandboxing doesn't lend well to RP and it's hard to be RP-intensive when you have a (4e) Goliath Sentinel who wants to avoid ever meeting his tribe and a Thri-Kreen Fist Weaponmaster [though this guy is in LOVE with the Thri-Kreen ...

  • 10:05 AM - steeldragons mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post What makes a Gold dragon GOLDl?
    All joking about the "Odor/Aura" aside...I do and have used scents in my descriptions of various things/places in play. Most notably surrounding clerics casting spells, channeling and/or turning undead ( sometime this is something perceived by everyone in the area...sometimes it's only perceived by the cleric themselves...but they know their deity is "there" by these emanations). Most notably a lil' halfling cleric whose goddess tended to manifest: pine trees, summer rains or breezes and baked goods and/or honey. The goddess of the seas evokes the sounds of either the low rumble or smashing force of crashing waves and the smell of salty sea air. etc... Not sure where I ever picked that up...but @Dannyalcatraz 's comment about descriptions of saintly/godly beings having pleasant smells around them is certainly a possibility. The idea that a semi-divine/mega-potent gold dragon might actually have an odor that has a magical effect on others is not, really, as far fetched as originally thought...hmmm. Especially since I've touched on the idea [though never really oforced it with writing it down] that that whole "dragonsfear" aura was the result of draconic phermones... I kinda like the "Grandma's kitchen" thing...so each person in the effect might smell something different that is that special/comfort/warming scent for them. (OR, @tuxgeo , alcoholic beverages. For me it would probably be white wine...beer for you...whiskey for someone else...Though I might make this the odor for the "confusion" phermones. lol. Or a charm/sleep/Dex. penalty gas? hahaha.) Good stuff guys. Everything in here is sparking/has some piece in formulating a really solid idea of what a gold (if not all of them) shou...

  • 11:17 AM - pemerton mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post Narrative Space Options for non-spellcasters
    But is this really an ability, or just using tactics? In a Combat as War setting, you'd need to develop methodologies for things like this, and ten take 15 minutes or so at every campside implementing them. Sounds more like a playstyle-thing to me.Are you responding to Dannyalcatraz or to me? (Or both?) From my perspective, the difference between what I'm suggesting (building on what I took to be your idea) and DannyA, is that my suggestion doesn't require the player to specify what, in detail, the PC is doing any more than a caster player needs to know the details of what, in the fiction, is involved in producing a magical effect. The player, based on a fictional input (the ranger is in natural terrain that provides cover/concealment) is able to stipulate a fictional output (the ranger, his/her campsite, etc as appropriate) is occluded from scrying due to the PC's superlative ability at camouflage. That's not to say that fictional positioning has no role to play, but it is all at the input stage (is there natural terrain that provides cover/concealment?) rather than at the details-of-resolution stage.

  • 06:15 PM - Ahnehnois mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post AD&D 2nd vs 3.5
    Dannyalcatraz Well that's an interesting way of putting it. But the core isn't the same either. The core is the standard modifier, which is a very different approach to basic character advancement. If you look at a 2e fighter's THAC0 advancement and specializations, it's not really all that different when you compare it to a 3e fighter taking Weapon Focus and the like. The wizard also advances at roughly the same rate in both versions. Taking that progression and expanding it to skills and saves was a big change for 3e. However, adding 1/2 level to everything and using nonscaling training bonuses and the like to differentiate characters, and putting saves and attacks and skills on the same progression as attacks, is fundamentally different. That's not the last 5%.

  • 03:31 PM - Agatheron mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post Developing a Miniatures Library
    Thanks for the comments so far. I have a few more pictures to share. Dannyalcatraz: Your list is very helpful in building a library, and I'm going to keep it handy. I will need it moving forward, as virtually everything you've mentioned shows up at some point or another. I have several spiders of varying sizes either completed, or in development. I also have a Dragon, a Beholder (gale force 9's new model), and an Ettin all on order. The sequence that I'm going to do these in depends on what adventure I'm running. Since I'm currently running through an upscaled Reavers of Harkenwold following Keep on the Shadowfell (levels 4-6, rather than 2-4), I needed figures that would stand in well for the Iron Circle soldiers. Ultimately, I ended up using Precursor Knights with some mild conversions on them (weapon swaps, add in crossbows). These guys I use as the Brigands/Non-minion Soldiers: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v508/Agatheron/DnDMinis/IronCircleBrigands.jpg These I uses as the minion rabble or sentries: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v508/Agatheron/DnDMinis...

  • 11:01 PM - Herobizkit mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post ICONS - Team of superhero geeks - adventure ideas?
    I found a commonality last night that I hadn't considered. Trains. The 30's guy is going to be in an area with lots of underground subway tunnels. The modern day guy is hiding from the government in a train graveyard. The future guy could get around via monorail. So, here's a concept - a quantum train that exists in multiple 'realities' at the same time (borrowing from Planescape). In The Avengers, Agent Coulson is tasked with recruiting the various heroes, and that's the same kind of thing I hope to accomplish. @Dannyalcatraz: Three science nerds get wind of an ancient alien-crafted portal that requires machines and electricity to function? They'll love it. Especially if they have to MAKE one.

  • 03:33 AM - pemerton mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post Pros and Cons of going mainstream
    I built a CON-based Elementalist Sorcerer so a friend who was visiting could have any easy PC to play when he dropped in for a single session. It exhibited the same oddity as Dannyalcatraz has noticed with respect to his Warlock - many more surges than a pure caster seems to need! The build challenge is then to find a way to make such a PC at least a semi-viable front-line fighter via close attacks, reasonable defences and a bit of condition mitigation.

  • 03:12 PM - Mary_Crowell mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post Music Theory 101
    Aye, asking about this stuff here was probably a bit of a stretch, but I really don't need anything too complex. Just a rundown of musical terms, and enough of it to be able to apply it to my games (Figuring out stuff for making the Bard a bit more... customizable (D&D 3.5ish)). Yeah, I could get a book, but that costs money, and I want to see if I can save that much. I agree with Dannyalcatraz, pathfinderq1, and Ahnehnois on their suggestions. Do a little research with wikipedia or a pocket music dictionary and then ask more specific questions. Also, I know you said you want to save money, but Song and Silence has some good ideas on rogue and bard characters you can modify for use in your 3.5 campaign. (It adapts well even though it's a 3.0 product.) Are any of your players musicians? If any are, you might let them give you some guidance and input. You'll have someone to ask who is both knowledgeable of the material and directly engaged in your game. (And then that person won't be telling you 'you aren't doing it right later.) ;)

    Dannyalcatraz Acolyte was my very first thought...but I was kinda stuck on the association that that's (or was) a 1st lvl cleric...and that's not what I want. Aspirant seems to imply the person is looking to enter into the order/religious structure...which I don't really want to imply...and initiate states outright that the person is already part of said order/religion. True Believer is interesting and gets my Stan Lee all tingly. lol. Nothing wrong with a little clever word association to appeal to the potential RPGer's inner (or outer, as in my own case) comic geek.

  • 04:32 AM - Nytmare mentioned Dannyalcatraz in post Experience Point: Become a Fit-Beard
    ...how out of shape we were, we decided to meld the game with a workout routine involving various numbers of pushups and situps. At the start of each day you did five of your choice, if you wanted to hire more troops you'd do ten pushups. Starting a battle? Losing a battle? Losing a battle you started? They all had various exercises tacked on to the in game costs. That night I crashed on his living room couch and passed out almost immediately. The following morning I awoke to his screams coming from the back of his house. I immediately tried to jump up and rush to his aid but discovered that I couldn't move. At all. I wasn't just sore, I was nearly paralyzed. I couldn't bend at the waist, or lift my arms for HOURS. I was eventually able to tumble off the couch and somehow inch myself up a wall, but we were WRECKED. I don't remember what our eventual tallies were, but if memory serves they were in the thousands. We also never touched Heroes of Might and Magic ever again. @Dannyalcatraz - Did you ever do any LARPing or play paintball or anything?

My point was arguing that multiple sexes makes sense and using engineered races as an example is incongruent.

  • 09:02 PM - MechaTarrasque quoted Dannyalcatraz in post Help me name the fantasy-historical pantheons
    I’ll just point out that some of the names suggested thus far are just a problematic as the names being avoided. Don’t like “Geek Pantheon” because Greece doesn’t exist in your game world? “Olympian” has the same issue- Olympus, the home of the Greek gods, was on Mount Olympus, a particular mountain in Greece. My advice is to ditch the RW names as completely as you can, and substitute references to the game world. You might even use a language translator like Word Hippo or Bing Translate to make things sound a bit better. So “Olympus” might become “Theopolis”, and the the inhabitants, “Theopolitans”. Or perhaps the gods’ city is on a mountain in your campaign world- let’s call it Mount Eskan. The deities who live there might be called “Eskanian”; their city, “Eskanopolis”. Olympus is also in Arborea on the Great Wheel, so according to Planescape, it is available to all settings.

  • 12:46 PM - MarkB quoted Dannyalcatraz in post Avengers: Endgame SPOILER THREAD
    Agreed with all about the facts of BW’s sterilization. (All similes ultimately fail at some point.) The point is, regardless of the infertility’s causation, the prospective alternative Darth Vader’s negative view of himself based on infertility would probably be seen as a weakly written characteristic in him, and it isn’t any better for her. And some would assert it is worse, given the historical context of how men have viewed and valued women. Would it really be any weaker than what we got? Anakin's clingy, one-sided love and desperate fear of abandonment isn't exactly a great motivation for a villain. Having him be truly in love with Padme, but finding that he was physically unable to give her the family that both he and she wanted, would hardly have been any weaker as a motivation.

    But Darth Vader didn’t become a Sith because he was sterile.* I mean, really- imagine if the window into the Vader’s darkness revealed he became what he was and corrupted himself because he was infertile. But somehow, this is OK with Black Widow? * “Duh!”, as his kids might say. Becoming a cold hearted killing machine wasn't because she was sterile. She was forcibly sterilized as part of her transformation into a cold hearted killing machine. Why would anyone even think that her "dark side" moment is because of her forced sterilization? The forced sterilization was a symbol of the horrific things they did to her to turn her into a monster, not the reason she became a monster. And then, when she destroys a family, she begins to try to redeem herself by switching sides - the whole "red ledger" thing. At the end, she balances the ledger by saving a family through her own self sacrifice. As I said, I'm really not seeing the issue here. Umbran, if the only thing you too...

But somehow, this is OK with Black Widow? That isn't what I was saying. I simply meant that revealing actual horrific details about Black Widow's past for her to feel monstrous about runs the risk of leaving us, the audience, agreeing with her assessment, alienating us rather than evoking sympathy. The infertility does not.

She wasn't a spy because she was sterile.

    ...and yet we have all the other movies indicating otherwise. Questions of religious redemption and the requirements therefor notwithstanding, how many times does a shady character have to save literally millions of people (or more) before we start thinking he or she is on a path of atonement? I'll put it this way. I always knew Darth Vader was a villain in the Star Wars trilogy, but I still fully bought into his redemption arc in Return of the Jedi. And then I retroactively unforgave him once I saw what he did during the invasion of the Jedi temple in Revenge of the Sith. People can accept the idea of a character with a shady past who's on a path of redemption, right up until they're confronted with the full reality of that past, in detail. Or to put it another way, a lot of us will judge someone on the basis of their worst day.

    I’m thinking that the pushback is a result of feeling that “barren = monster” is pretty lazy, male-centric writing, considering some of the things the character would have done in her history as a former KGB agent and one of the most talented spies and assassins in the entire world. Certainly someone like that has some pretty nasty secrets and made decisions that resulted in homicides by her own hand, some of which would require some extremely warped ethics to justify to herself. Perhaps they chose to go with that precisely because it's a completely forgivable 'sin' in the eyes of the audience, whereas some of the crimes you allude to would have left many audience members convinced that she truly could not be redeemed.

    It’s not bad. But I will say that seeing those people in person- as well as hearing their voices, the tales they tell, etc.- could be a powerful reminder. That’s a good thing...if you want a reminder, that is. I guess. *shrug* I'm just living in such a super different world now that I'm not even sure if I could relate to meeting myself from back then. It's almost like somewhere along the line I turned into my dad (and he says that too).

That’s a good thing...if you want a reminder, that is. High school sucked. I was the outsider in a class of <30. Upper class-people treated me horribly. Not right but I understood the Columbin Incident when it happened. I was in that kinda school.
