    Review Giantlands, reviewed by David Flor on Twitter.

    I really don’t know what to make of this. But I’m dead certain my next PC, regardless of system, is going to be named “Grift Grievance”. That works for everything from a gunslinger to a Vancian wizard, right?

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    Anson looking pensive and wholesome. Also, the full trailer for Picard S02 is out. Can confirm a certain bartender hanging out on 21st Earth...

    D&D 5E What Level(s) Are Your Character(s)?

    Is the PCs name "James Holden" by any chance?

    D&D 5E What Level(s) Are Your Character(s)?

    Pontius Pilateson, Roman-Viking cleric of YHWH is 7th level (Labyrinth Lord). And he'll die or retire that way because we're starting the climactic battle for Fake Medieval Iceland tonight. BTW, his retirement plans include piracy. Edit: whoops, forgot about Kropotkin, hobgoblin expert...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    I keep forgetting to check out Evil. I give the new series a lot of credit for updating Trek in ways that I didn't expect, especially now that they've settled on a showrunner for Discovery whose two seasons feel pretty coherent. And bringing Jean-Luc back to tell a story about regret, refugees...

    Matrix 4 (Spoilers)

    Io is the city Niobe runs. It’s probably I/O, ie input/output. Resurrections isn’t going to work for people who aren’t at least tolerant of metafiction. But the Matrix has always been a bit meta, yeah?

    D&D General What are you prepping for your next D&D session? (+)

    In a surprise move, I actually made a setting document for my players. It's 2 pages long and it probably amuses me more than it will inform them. I hope to start running the campaign soon, once we finish the Battle Of Fake Medieval Iceland which starts this Friday. If you're interested, have a...

    Joss Whedon Allegations: The Undoing of the "Buffy" Creator

    This sounds like a good time to remind people that Whedon has nothing to do with The Nevers (on HBO) anymore, and that it's a good show with a lot of people who are absolutely not Joss Whedon doing quality work,

    Emergency Reading Material.

    The Kelewan trilogy. My buddy swears they're better than the Riftwar (I'm not so sure). If I were to take Eddings, it would be the Belgariad.

    The Expanse (Spoilers)

    Those flashes of red are the protomolecule builder’s enemies who live in the universe beyond the ring-space. I think.

    The Expanse (Spoilers)

    I thought it ended well. Show-Holden has his most Holden-like moment right at the end, and it was magnificent. I noticed Peaches was given 5 years to live by the auto-doc. This gives me hopes for a series or set of films that adapt the last three books in the near future. I took it as the...

    Star Trek Star Trek, Paramount+, and a Defense of the Greatest Star Trek Captain

    Season 2 plays it straighter and pulls from DS9 as well as TNG. I think it was Seth MacFarlane admitting he didn't want to make a funny homage to Star Trek, he just wanted to make Star Trek.

    Star Trek Star Trek, Paramount+, and a Defense of the Greatest Star Trek Captain

    I love that Culber is ship's counselor by virtue of surviving the trauma of reincarnation.

    Star Trek Star Trek, Paramount+, and a Defense of the Greatest Star Trek Captain

    The Orville is TNG if the crew went to a state university instead of an Ivy League school. A bit less accomplished, a bit more relatable, considerably more likely to have sustained injuries in a fraternity/sorority hazing incident.

    D&D 5E The Bible Is A New 5E Setting

    Admittedly, what I wrote was in poor taste. I’ll remove it.

    D&D 5E The Bible Is A New 5E Setting

    Jesus Christ, my group should run a campaign using this. Some of us have read the Bible cover to cover, as if it were the PHB!

    The Book of Boba Fett (spoilers)

    Aha… so the twist for this show is “post-colonial Western”. Much stronger second episode. Once again, I shall delay un-subbing from Disney+…

    Review Giantlands, reviewed by David Flor on Twitter.

    It lacks the sophistication of, say, the early Palladium releases.

    The Book of Boba Fett (spoilers)

    I think of Mathesar and the Thermians fairly often. Usually when I’m arguing with someone about ‘canon’.

    The Book of Boba Fett (spoilers)

    It’s almost like the people who make fiction are liars.
