Janus talking to the priest was the day after the murder, and she replaced the apothecary the night before the camp site party left to scout it out

Any chance those bone throwing knives are ready yet?

Didn't we say two weeks? If so they're not done yet, but they will be by the time you return from the ambush. Of course, you'll have to pick them up as Leela...

I'm basically not sure of the day count atm. Also, why is rocking back up as Leela a problem?

And while I'm all for using a firearm seized from the enemy, I'm also all for checking that it's loaded/how much ammo is in it. Just saying.

It is ridiculous how often we're given stories in which people do not do this.

Especially the "prove your loyalty by shooting your friend" routine where the character being tested is surprised their plot-twist reveal has been ruined. "Don't point a loaded gun at something you don't intend to shoot" has a corollary of "Don't point a gun at something you intend to shoot until you're sure it's loaded".

If you are not watching Star Wars Rebels, go and watch.  It just go real with the season finale.

I think my main problem with Rebels compared to TCW is that the latter employs a more traditional narrative logic. Rebels OTOH has all the logic of the average RPG session. While the baddies in both series clearly have two wildly different levels of competence -- mooks and specials -- in TCW the good guys had mooks as well so the discrepency wasn't so painfully obvious.

Wasn't there a faction feat in World on Fire that let you flip Dramatic Scenes on and off?

Also, can we get that picture behind a spoiler cut please? It's waaay to wide.

... introducing a new heroine.
Michele Rodriguez can play a character who is awesome and who lives?

Isn't that a bad omen?
Last time was Battle: Los Angles.
...which I still liked. Tongue

Ditto.

If you look at Alien, Aliens, and Alien 3 you get a sci-fi version of Beowulf.

Nice comparison; Alien Cubed is a terribly underrated film. While I look forward to Blomkamp's project with intrigue, I don't think the franchise would be hurt by moving on from Ripley and introducing a new heroine.

I think this is a good spot to remember the passing of folks who are personally important.  I'm sorry to hear of your loss.   Sad

Ditto
