I should have known what would have happened. I'm disappointed in the direction the Star Trek thread has gone. Why can't folks just be happy a new series is coming? I love Star Trek and Star Wars warts and all. I am always excited to hear new stuff is coming. I'll watch it unless it's totally unwatchable. Last Jedi might be the closest I've come to that but I still love Star Wars.

I’m starting to really warm up to this Roll20, eventhough we haven’t yet had an actual game. But the more I fiddle with it, the more I realise how easy it makes my part of the game. I can straight up import a monster statblock to a note and then modify it as I see fit. Importing pics for player handouts is really simple. Character sheet can be updated dragging relevant ability or spell description directly into it. I really need to schedule a time with my dedicated playtester soon to see how it plays...

Could’ve been, but actually no. A friend who’s not in the game, and who I bounce my ideas off of, agreed to help me test out some of the functions before I run an actual game.

Wife is in the game, so I don’t want her to accidentally see things she’s not supposed to...

I listened to a podcast last night called Godawful Movies. They were talking about The Phantom Menace. I disagree with many of their points. One reoccurring theme was how creepy the relationship between Anakin and Padme was. They went on and on about it. What made it funny was, they kept talking about how hot Natalie Portman was. But the thing is, she was under age at the time also. So who was creepy? Lol

Didn’t hear the podcast, but Phantom Menace was the last SW movie my parents and I watched. We all hated it (for different reasons).

You're lucky. I wish I had someone like that. I have so many projects that I want to do, an Adventure Path I'm working on, a campaign setting, a couple of board games... and I'm doing this by myself and I just feel overwhelmed. I feel like I need to talk to people and yet I don't really have anyone. My ex-wife never understood my enjoyment of working on my projects and thus didn't really support me. I always feel like if I could find just one person to support, I could do amazing things.

Sorry... little side venting...

You can always use the Hive as a sounding board 😉

Just saying, at least we share your obsession of tinkering with rpg’s 😂

I had to look that up. Apparently the movie came out in 1999. She was born in 1981. So if we assumed she worked on it during 1998, she would have been 17 at the oldest. But I don't think she really dressed "hot" until the Attack of the Clones, but by that point she would have been old enough. Now, I remember thinking at the time that she was hot, but I was born in 1983, so even if at the time I thought she was hot, I was younger than her, so it's okay. ;)

But I didn't really think the whole relationship got creepy until Attack of the Clones. Like "Never a day went by that I didn't think about her." Like dude, you were eight. It's like having a crush on your babysitter. Yeah, it's fine when you're a kid, but you usually grow out of that. And typically the babysitter doesn't have any romantic feelings for you. Now, I don't necessarily have any problems with them getting together, but I just felt like they came on a little strong.

I actually just rewatched them a while ago before I started watching the Clone Wars from the beginning. There were definitely things I liked... and definitely parts I skipped over. BUT.... I didn't hate them enough to not watch them again.

The thing with Padme & Anakin that some people seem to conveniently forget, while Portman was 17-18 at the time, the character Padme was 14. The age difference of the characters is mere 6 years, and by the time their relationship became romantic, Anakin was already young adult.

True, but it's not quite the same as having someone here in person discussing things. Though I suppose maybe for some things posting would be better. More potential people thinking about it.

Anyway, here's something I recently put together. A map of my campaign setting. I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing with photoshop to get this. Obviously not one hundred percent done, but it's what I got so far.

If there’s not a huge meteor strike or ”magical nuke oops” in the history of that world, I’m going to be pissed. That circular sea in the middle just screams for something like that.

For me, it wasn't so much as the age difference. At the beginning of the second movie, assuming 18 and 24, that isn't that much of a gap. I wouldn't have had problems with that. I just felt like the relationship was a little rushed and a little forced and because they had to fit it all into one movie, it just came out a little wonky.

There was a time known as the Godswar, which is when the Caretakers (the collective name for the deities of the world) fought against the Great Old Ones. The deities fought in many instances against the Great Old Ones and lands were shifted, created or destroyed. Many wonders remain from that time and many horrors.

In that location, several of the Caretakers lured one of the Great Old Ones to a massive city. The intent was the trap the Great Old One in the confines of the city, but the Great Old One was too powerful. The city itself was essentially ripped from the earth and the magics used caused the continent to fracture. One of the Caretakers and the Great Old One remains trapped to this day in the city which has balled up and floats half-submerged in the center of that location.

I can't remember if I shared this before or not. It would have been years ago.

Dragon magazine had a poster map of the Isles of Dread, and I used it as a basis for a new setting. It was an archipelago with one large main island and smaller islands around it. All the PC races lived on the smaller islands, on the water, or under it. The humans had a kingdom on a peninsula on the main island. There was a narrow strip of land to the larger part. Along this was a very large military buildup. The kingdom had legends of what was "out there" each generation would add to the defense. The other races think the humans are bat guano crazy, but won't set foot there either.
