Oh, well, my opinion doesn't matter very much.
It matters enough that we will try to play something we can all look forward to.

Re: Monday Night Kingdoms of Kalamar Game

I'm fine with either. IE all the above, including ADD. As for what I want to do next, well, a number of things, actually. Of which, the one I want to do the most depends on my newest ideas for it, so changes every few days. As for Victorious, unless someone needs to send me private messages, everyon...

Re: What Video Game(s) are you playing

Started playing Borderlands 2 with my son. Its OK. The main thing for me is this is with my son who still lives in AZ. So we spend time together via the internet playing multi player games every Sunday morning that we can.

He is actually writing it. No idea when its going to be released, or even when he is going to be finished with his part, but he is working on it.

The MegaTraveller ship building rules, with errata, is still my Favorite for when I am in a gear head mood, but I find the newest Mongoose rules to be the easiest.

OK, I definitely can't run a game tonight, disability issues have flared up. If Rigon or Lurker runs, I think I will be able to play, just I will be muted most of the time, most likely.

Campaign Cartographer is on Bundle of Holding

Probably best for planetside maps, but there are sci fi add ons. Currently $65 for over $200 worth of program files. https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Cartographer It has a reputation for a steep learning curve, but if your artistically inept like me, its easier than learning how to be artistic.

Re: Mongoose Traveller 2E/1E

I'm sure it boils down to the same reasons WOTC doesn't keep selling the Dragon CD ROM. Namely, that they'd need individual approvals from the art/cartoonists to reprint in an electronic form; much like Kenzer & Co did with ssuing Wizards over KODT strips in Dragon. I agree its sad, and these s...

Re: Mongoose Traveller 2E/1E

I need to refresh myself on UK copy right. By US law, since GDW doesn't sell back issues, I can pick up all the PDF's however I want for White Dwarf. Which is very stupid of GDW, btw. Unless there is something about UK copyright law that makes it smart to do.

We may be able to be able to work as a pair, I was planning on being as offensive as I can. Meaning powers, not what I say, but I will still do that too. So we can maybe do it as a sword and shield kind of pair up.

Then any ranks above the first applies to a specific group of vehicles. Which in todays world would be car...
