It seems the sort of thing you'd launch from one of Antilles' "This is what happening now" posts, but sure.

So, once the town has bedded down for the night, Janus and the Professor are going burglaring.

What is this Purge of which you speak?

Take note that even before home media release that it actually more than doubled its $178M upfront production budget. Usually, when measuring a film's box office success, you take a figure of one and a half times the upfront budget and work with that as a benchmark for breaking even; in this case the maketing budget is given at coming in towards $100M  so given a global boxoffice of $364M has resulted in anoverall $86M profit it's hardly the disaster the phrase "bombed at the boxoffice" makes it out to be.

What do people want to see?

I'm still a believer in Spellbound. Having lived through the Wilderness Years of Doctor Who, that's not a great surprise for me. There's certainly a great attraction in the utility of dedicated classes and a large library of codified spells. However, until the coffin is finally nailed shut on that, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be interested in a directly competing third party product using the basics of the SRD magic system. I think I'd feel kinda dirty, like I was cheating on Crafty.

That said, I wouldn't necessarily turn my nose up at a kit that found a way to translate the freeform nature of something like the magic sphere + rote system of Mage: the Ascension into something that works meaningfully with Fantasy Craft or at a pinch the basic OGL system.

(It could just as easily be something like the 5 colour schema used by M:tG, just as long as it was along the lines of "here's your power threshold, within the limits of which the effects you generate are basically up to you, depending on what you've got to mix together to begin with")

Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson:






This seems to me to be a direct result of the militarisation of America's police forces by the DHS in the wake of 9/11.

Speaking of deaths. Ferguson, the town where an officer gunned down an unarmed african-american student named Michael Brown in the street -- and surprise surprise the police justification for their actions yet again starkly contrasts with eye-witnesses testimony -- has been declared a non-flight zone and placed under martial law as decades of frustration has begun bubbling over. Journalists are being shut down, kicked out of town, arrested, and fired upon, by government paramilitary forces.

Yes, some locals are rioting. Reports from the ground seem to indicate tat as largely been in response to the unwarranted flood of heavily armed riot and suppression squads brought in by the police following their abysmal handling of the initial shooting.

Makes me wonder when the Second American Civil War is going to finally kick off in earnest.
