I mean, they could have called it the Minion edition. Or the Mook edition (although Feng Shui may have used that already).

I actually started by calling it Minion Edition, so Henchman is a step up! Smiley

He doesn't want to puke - not, at least, about this.  Grin

I read a review of 4e by one ofthe playtesters. Regardless of what you think of 4e there was a key phrase that the playtester mentioned. "cleaner". I think this is what I'd want to see. I'd like the henchman's edition to be cleaner, not really simpler. Taking a look and saying "hmmm
can we streamline this?". Rather than a "dumbing down".

Cleaner is definitely a guiding goal. Dumbed down is definitely not. Smiley

I can't think what you could call it and not have it conceivably condescending. Spycraft Lite could be seen as condescending just as easily.

And we already have a Spycraft Lite (for Classic, with another to come around the same time as Henchman for 2.0). It's the freebie Level 1 product.

Drive casual.

But don't drive angry! Wink

The Crafty³ are excited about every release, aren't they?

If we weren't, the product wouldn't happen. It's that simple.  Wink
And if the fanbase wasn't excited you wouldn't be earning money  Grin.

Touche.

The upgrade is indeed a new cover and new interior dressing, plus we folded in what little errata the product had and made some clarity changes.

Your downloads should have reset when we released the update.

Off topic, but as this is quickly disintigrating into comic bashing: How to Save Marvel Comics, Step One.

This guy's numbers are a little... off. Assuming everyone who went to see Spider-Man 3 saw it three times? Seriously, most people don't do that with good movies. And 100,000 copies of anything sold in today's market is astounding - and I'd argue that if that number represents 1% of the potential readership, then Marvel should be organizing hostile takeovers of small nations 'cause they certainly got the manpower for it.

It's not that the comics boom/bust cycle is careening off the rails - it's that every market's numbers are careening off the rails, boom/bust cycle or no. And...

You know, I'm gonna stop reading. I got to the part where the author claims that there's no reason to court adults - which is like saying that RPG companies should ignore the audience that's grown up with the medium, as this is one place where the two industries are virtually identical - and... No, I'm gonna stop. There's nothing more for me here. Moving on... Smiley

In case anyone missed it, check out Stephen Colbert's interview with Brubaker on his show earlier this week (clip should be up on Comedy Central's Motherload).

I'd missed this. Wow that's awesome. "Colbert SMASH!"  Grin

I'd use them if I ran the missions, for what that's worth.
8039  Community / Classic Topics / Re: [Humor] Campaign Qualities to Avoid? on: February 02, 2008, 05:41:06 AM
Okay, who brought the Semtex dice?

That sounds like an awesome campaign quality name, actually!

Semtex Dice (+0 XP): Each action die explodes when either of the two highest numbers possible on the die are rolled. Each time an action die explodes, randomly choose one player character, roll deviation as if he were missed with an attack from a number of range increments equal to the number of times the action die exploded. That point becomes Ground Zero for an explosion hazard with an action die cost equal to the number of times the action die exploded (maximum 4). For more information about explosion hazards, see the Spycraft 2.0 Rulebook, page 400.

Just looking for some info on this henchmen's edition I keep hearing about. I understand it's a "lite" version of the rules? Any info would appreciated.

As folks have said, we can't provide a release date for this product at this time. It's in development and we're all very excited about it. Work is happening and we all think it's going to own, but beyond that we can't provide concrete details. Sorry.

If you've got specific questions other than "When will it be out?" we'll see if we can answer them - though as you can see in the first thread some details either aren't available or can't be released yet.

BTW "Henchmen's edition" seems a little condescending, maybe it's just me.

So this has come up before and I have to say, "Really?" Because Hero has Sidekick and no one seems to flinch there. Is this any different? And if so, what would you call the product?
