Re: Quotes of the Week

Heard this week in our FATE Sword & Sorcery campaign. My character Shade is a sorcerous thief who has lately been impersonating an Imperial Inquisitor to get the cops to take out a really dangerous cult. He's just been cornered in his 'real' identity by a military officer with a lot of men. "I give ...

Re: Quotes of the Week

kenmadragon, you got a belly laugh out of me with a couple of those! Your group sounds fun. Some other ones from the Kingdom game: "So what is your opinion of our psychotic, bipolar ruler?" "I rather assiduously strive not to have opinions of psychotic, bipolar rulers at all. They tend to take it ba...

Re: Quotes of the Week

Heh. We had one really memorable line from a Kingdom game a couple weeks ago. (New game with a Kickstarter here if you're interested.) Milos is the governor of the city who's always been indecisive and rather feckless. When one of the major noble houses of the city goes into rebellion, though, he fi...

Re: Man of Steel 2013 film SPOILERS

Another thing... I haven't read DC comics in a while. Does the new continuity include the idea that Supes was the first natural birth on Krypton in centuries? Or is that unique to the movie? Ditto for the whole atmosphere thing.

Re: Man of Steel 2013 film SPOILERS

One other thing that kept bugging me throughout the movie:

The cape needs the big yellow S / House of El sigil on it. It just looks too plain without it.

Re: Man of Steel 2013 film SPOILERS

Just saw it! I, for one, was convinced that was the Superman I know. I intend to see it again. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. There are some things that are definitely controversial, though, that I'm not sure I like. The take on Pa Kent was... interesting. The way he died, I'm not sure I buy it. T...

Re: Lords of Goassamer & Shadow: Diceless Role-Playing

Buh whuh? Kit, that was you?! (Haven't been by here in a while.)

I feel even better about supporting the Kickstarter now. :) But honestly, more Amber Diceless? Shoo-in, for me.

Re: Life and Light: Shadow-Force Reborn (Updated Jan 24, 2011)

Hey, glad you're enjoying it! There is more material, I just haven't had the energy to write it all up. Work and life have been their usual crazy selves, and also the GM and I both got addicted to Minecraft... I haven't forgotten about this story, though, and hope to update it before too much longer.

Re: Homeland Security, Esoteric Division [OOC]

No objection to speeding things along. I think I prefer "bantering while en route" to "already in Detroit", though. EDIT: Jack has something to say to Cassie when things aren't quite as fraught, is why. EDIT: Plus we need to figure out what each other can do, and the field leader. Now THAT should be...

Jack

Jack bites off an angry retort as Cassie arrives. "Whattaya know, Drake and I actually agree on something. Two things, actually. Let's get gone!"

Re: Homeland Security, Esoteric Division [OOC]

I'm watching the exchange between Jack and Drake with some amusement. Heh. Yeah, I'm still wondering where the junkie thing came from. Clearly there are two totally different cognitive worlds colliding there. I have a sneaking suspicion that they might be good for each other in the long run, provid...

Re: Homeland Security, Esoteric Division [IC]

Jack Jack stares at Drake in mute astonishment. Then, perhaps surprisingly, he begins to laugh. "Oh MAN! You are indeed a piece of freakin' work, Mr. Harris! Balls of brass, I'll give you that." He steps back, still chuckling. "I see how your mind works now. Because you've categorized me as a 'junk...

Re: Homeland Security, Esoteric Division [IC]

Jack Jack opens his door and stalks out of it. He's wearing the same orange shirt and blue jeans as before, but this time the vest is lavender instead of green. With frosty dignity, he says "I beg your pardon, I didn't mean to eavesdrop. My hearing is excellent and I'm still learning to filter out ...
