Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:17 PM)

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

Question to all the native English speakers: Those of you familiar with Australian singer Sia - how hard are her vocals for you to understand?

death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

Some other links. I waffled on what thread would be best to post this in or if I should have even posted it. I'm looking to see how it does since it looks like it's actually trying to be an MLP product.

Are you thinking about switching STOMP over to this system if it looks viable enough? It wouldn't be the first time we've rebuilt our character sheets.

I think it would be far too big of a switch this deep into the game. It would be a far greater paradigm shift between systems. However, I might borrow ideas from it since I already sometimes borrow ideas from other RPGs. I might also borrow a story arc if I need filler but I doubt that.

I might rebuild the structure of the character sheets, though. They've got a ton of unneeded white space. Granted, I think there would be resistance if I alter font sizes.

I'm curious to see how the system looks. I do think it's kinda awesome that this exists regardless.

One place (ICv2?) had some preview images but I can't remember where. It's a d6 system that seems to have similarities to things like the FATE. Also seemed to have a more distinct earth pony/unicorn/pegasus line.

Cannot wait to get my hands on this, and again I say that as an almost entirely lapsed fan. From what little we've seen I think these dudes are trying hard to do right by this franchise, and this product will be a magnificent gift to many people. I just feel like this a fandom that deserves a good (official) RPG. I can't really articulate it but it just seems like a perfect fit.

Yeah, I feel like the unofficial tabletop is most likely to get people who are interested in RPs to play a Pony one. The official one seems likely to mostly get people who like Pony into playing an RP. Which is really very cool.

Roan has some good ideas, but is seriously lacking in the polish that Hasbro will hopefully insist on for the official game.  (Parts of Roan read like they were written by someone for whom English was not their first language, and editing is indifferent at best.)

So, system where better attribute or skill means bigger die.  I vaguely remember playing a pulp adventure game using such a system (and tokens) back around 2001, wonder if there's a direct connection?

Things that aren't d20 tend to. Savage Worlds does, but that launched in 2003.

Edit: To my limited understanding of the systems, the apparently narrative approach to skills and weaknesses looks more FATE than Savage Worlds, but it's hard to guess, since the biggest difference is how you get them.

Second edit: I love that the CSes use pony bases and have kids draw on the bits. It's almost exactly like the RP here, where most of our characters' first art came from the Pony Creator, just ... the analog version.
