Question about the Greater Breath Species Feat.

Quote
Your breath weapon becomes a 40-ft. line, 20-ft. cone, or 15-ft. sphere (your choice). If you choose a sphere, the attack is a flaming ball of spit you may position anywhere within 20 ft. of you.

If you pick the sphere, which is basically like spitting a fireball, can you hurt yourself if you target an area that puts you in the fifteen foot area of effect?

Yes. Fantasy Craft assumes that anything created by magic is actually that thing, and characters are not naturally resistant to fire (unless they are, so make one that is). Wink

Sure is, but at least his final act was pretty damn awesome.

As I say, the man was a legend. The world is much darker without him in it.

Sam Simon, co-creator of a little TV show called The Simpsons.

This is a crying shame, this is.

Anybody else catch the premier episode of Dig on USA?

Ugh. ::spits::

It's Tim Kring, so it shouldn't be surprising that it was trash. Still, it was especially stinky trash.

Ever heard a song on a program and wanted to find out what it was?

Brilliant site.

It really is. I've been relying on this one and a couple others for years now.

This one is a little different...

Those of you who frequented the old forums may remember a user named jirel. It turns out jirel / Cynthia Hart died back in late January. She'd had numerous health issues, and it looks like they finally got the better of her.

Damn.

The phrase that keeps running through my head about this isn't right but it's in the ballpark: "Creators shouldn't outlive their fans."

It's bollocks, of course, but it says what I mean. You guys are all family to us. and stuff like this... It's worse than any of our heroes or idols passing away. It's a piece of this special thing we've all created shifting to memory alone, and no matter how you slice it, that's fucking tragic.

Blomkamp Confirms His Alien Film Is A Direct Sequel To Aliens

Yes, this is going to be an official retcon of 3 and Resurrection.  I am sure there is no tears shed over that.

No tears but I have a very soft spot for A3 - so much so I honestly cannot pick a favorite among the first three films

Our deepest condolences, RusVal. It sounds like he was an amazing person.

We made a real effort to release the Mistborn Adventure Game for alternative (non-PDF) formats. We designed the interior template to allow for it (to the best of our understanding of the process at the time). We spent a tons of time and more than a little money seriously investigating the process and even hired someone to run test outputs in the hope that we could use this game as a testbed for releasing all our titles in new formats.

Adobe's claims and our early tests with the novella we bundled with the digital edition led us to believe that we could make it work for the full game, and we even committed to it a ways before release.

Sadly, it was not to be and at present we're not sure when it will become possible with any future titles. The reality is that the tech just isn't there yet. Adobe's eBook outputs are woefully lacking, doing little more than leaving you with a (very, very sloppy) HTML-ish file that can only be tweaked by literally digging into tens of thousands of lines of code and making manual adjustments to strip out junk and build in necessary functionality.

It was possible with the novella because that file has no images, no tables, and no special formatting of any kind. The second you insert any of those you're hosed - and since they're all essential for RPGs that means eBook outputs are off the table for the time being.

Note: We really only tried with one release format. There are dozens and no clear market leader has emerged yet, which makes the process exponentially more difficult and costly - and ultimately futile.

We're hopeful that the tech will catch up with demand eventually, and that one eBook format will dominate, allowing us to concentrate our efforts and enter the space. Until that happens, however, we're sadly unable to enter that market.

Apologies. It hasn't gone out yet. We expected it would go out Saturday but outside forces interceded.

Anyone ever play Tannhauser?  I bought the entire line because I liked the Mini's.. and.. strangely enough.. it's a decent FPS-ish skirmish game.

Never had the pleasure.

So.. we're playing some Descent 2 this weekend to give our Dice some much needed vacationing.  And while we were planning who played what (Koala Overlord, muahahahahahah!), we wondered why doesn't Spycraft have a board game?  It seems like a great IP to put onto a Co-Op board like X-Com and Arkham.

(Obvious estimated answer:  "Jesus, Koala.  Crafty is trying to get Z-Corps, Mistborn, 10KB, Spy3 and VoS out the door.  And you're asking about a Board Game!?") LOL

We've asked the question too - and there will be an answer. First a little something else, though. Maybe a couple things. Smiley

I may hate Kickstarter, but if and when that happens, I will Kickstart the HELL out of that Kickstarter campaign.  (Board Games got us through alot of long boring nights when there wasn't much to do in a tin can or canvas mausoleum, so they hold a special place of interest for me.)

Well then, we look forward to your support - when the time comes.

EDIT: In addition to the things you mention, that is. Those things you list out are coming too, though some of them are (much) further off than others.

I had never heard of the Broken Token.

Phe-nominal products. Here are some pics of my Lords of Waterdeep and BSG sets with the inserts, um, inserted.

That's one of Kevin's first freelance projects. I'm really excited to see it on the market, and looking forward to getting a game in soon. Glad to hear you liked it.

I think you'll dig on it. It's a good mix of cooperative-competitive.

Cool. I'll try to get a game in sometime soon.

I'm still convinced he designed Android specifically for me, BTW.

How do you know he didn't?  Wink
