Re: S1E4 - The Last Outpost

It’s so interesting to see these characters so early in the actors’ terms with them. Riker seems more or less as he always does, though until he grows the beard he’ll just be wee babby Will. Picard has a Francophonic quirk of swearing in French that’s quickly abandoned. Brent Spiner hasn’t really fi...

Re: S1E4 - The Last Outpost

This is so different from the Ferengi as we see them later.

Re: S1E1 - Encounter at Farpoint

This is definitely an artifact of its time, the old TV model. A lot of time was spent establishing characters and relationships and for a good chunk in the middle not a lot happened. For the most part, it works. It's good but not great Star Trek. What I liked about this is how immediately they diffe...

Re: Stargate RPG - dream design

Yeah, that's all pretty much what I had in mind. I like the idea of using a threat pool or some GM currency to introduce/upgrade new enemies or threats. Feels very thematic for Stargate.

Stargate RPG - dream design

There’s already been one Stargate RPG from the early 2000s. If you guessed that it was a d20 OGL game based on that first sentence alone, give yourself a pat on the back. It used Spycraft as a base chassis, with new gear and some special feats, prestige classes, gear, etc. to make it ‘Stargate’ but ...

Re: What are you reading?

Fired up Jade City by Fonda Lee and it is excellent so far. Very taut and tense in a densely imagined and realized Asian-inspired fantasy setting. I unfairly keep mentally comparing it to The Godfather . It's doing its own thing brilliantly but it's a story of a crime family during a transfer of pow...

Re: What are you reading?

I've finished up the Dinocalypse trilogy and King Khan . There was quite a shift in voice between authors in the Dinocalypse stories as Carrie Harris took over for the third book. I'm glad she didn't try to mimic Chuck Wendig's style; that wouldn't have worked. I enjoyed the trilogy quite a lot. Kin...

Re: Powered by the Apocatalk: The Speaking of Names

There's a lot to unpack here. My first impression and understanding is that it refers specifically to MC moves, but I don't have a game handy at the moment to cite chapter and verse. There's reasoning behind this. First is that it not speaking the name of MC moves keeps the MC interactions specifica...
