  1. RPG club is now not meeting, hand forced by the closing of the club where we meet. I expected it to be cancelled anyway, and I’d already decided not to go. Also, my group’s meet tonight cancelled, Dr’s orders to one of the players to not mix, and as we’re already one down no point in carrying on.
  2. Yes, Ive knocked things on the head for now. I game/socialise four evenings a week with different groups, so the risk of me picking it up and becoming a carrier is high. I'm not worried for myself, but my contact with vulnerable people makes me choose to err on the side of prudence. Still having a session this week though, which we run fortnightly; whether it continues will depend on what happens in the next two weeks.
  3. Thanks for the heads up on this. If there's a problem with the print run I will hold off ordering for now, if other copies are OK, I'll take my chance. Given the usual quality of Chaosium products I'd guess this is an aberration, an unfortunately ironic one given one of the selling points for this version is new artwork.
  4. Yes – not to be rude as you do ask –it seems you are. Ask yourself what 5 - 5 is. Then 5 - 10. Now 5 - (2 x 5) and 5 - (3 x 5). Hint, the last two answers aren’t -4 and -9. You are counting each number as a hit point. It’s the gaps between the numbers you should be counting. I.e., HP 1 is the range from 0.01* to 1, 2 is 2.01 to 2. * let’s not be pedants here, this is an example value.
  5. Great subject. One of those ideas that never occurs to you but seems obvious once you've heard it. For your delectation, a couple vids of recreations of dinosaur sounds based on bird sounds. I guess what we need for dragonewts is the extrapolation of a bird sound to a man-sized creature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=52&v=QtpSOpUDCb8&feature=emb_logo https://youtu.be/0oWur4bX4Lw And here's one that discusses how sounds might have been made. https://youtu.be/RwRR_qLgvw8
  6. But there’s no harm in indulging ourselves in some wishful thinking, which was all it was really
  7. I admit, I didn’t realise there was so much to them. Give it to me in a two book slipcase then.
  8. Any chance of these being published in a hardback collection, or is it another case of the quality of the original scans not being up to it? That’s something I’d love to have on my shelf.
  9. "Hang on, let me right this down."
  10. <slapsforehead> Ok, you got me. I must be slow today.
  11. Are we talking at cross-purposes?
  12. It's a Doctor Who reference. Only one of the most popular sci-fi shows in TV history. I'd expect plenty of people to get it. There's alway Google, but I supplied a link, so what's the problem?
  13. In response to the Campaign Book comments, there’s clearly room for both approaches – historic events can happen as writ or their outcomes can be changed by campaign events. Speaking as a returning GM who enjoys Glorantha but has discovered there’s a huge body of lore that wasn’t around when he was playing back in the 80s, the thought of changing the timeline is daunting. I don’t know enough about the politics, the armies, the military campaigns, the personalities, etc., to work out what the domino effect is if outcome X changes. I am more than happy to work within a pre-determined timeline, knowing that the world my players are in will maintain consistency. My respect to those who have the knowledge, time and inclination to forge their own path. You go for it. But I’m putting my hand up for a nice supporting framework that gives me and my players an interesting background to work within. Roll on the Campaign Book.
  14. That’s fine, and I think inevitable with a subject like this. The big trouble we have is that we never can really know for sure. All we have is anecdote and intelligent conjecture, and we can only make our best guesses based on the evidence to hand. I’m assuming auto-correct has done its corrupting work and that you meant to say, “…it’s easier to understand by trying to sub-vocalize.” I would agree, but not that difficult for a practiced reader, though still annoying and ultimately tiring.
  15. I believe I made the same points, though not with the depth you have. A good point re the quality of the material they may have had available. Having just had four fails on a captcha I can sympathise with them, though my out loud was rather more of the ‘What the *%&* is that supposed to %^&*ing be,’ rather than saying the letter out loud
