I wonder how golden his parchute's going to turn out to be for jumping instead of being pushed.

And yeah, that's some serious uncanny valley territory he's sliding into there. I think the descriptor is 'lizard-like'.

The lack of Craft for a class dealing with magical constructs is a glaring omission

Just tracked down and watched the first hour/2 episodes of Rebels.

Recognizing it's children's fare and suffers the limitations of all such cotton candy, I like it.

While it echoes the movies, the contemptuous ease with which the heroes and villains murder stormies is surprising in a kid's series (though not necessarily a Disney series: Weisman's own Gargoyles as well as Tron Uprising also had noticeable body counts). But if you're going to have such casually dispatched mooks while thei cartoonishly genocidal bosses continue on unscathed, it would be nice if those mooks at least presented a genuine threat to justify their deaths instead of effectively standing around pissing into the wind.

Amongst other things it's adding some really useful ships and other hardware to the canon. The multi-roll Imperial micro-carriers is something we've needed to see for a long time - a combination troop-transport & tender for up to 4 TIEs is just about the ideal size to run a really well equipped team off of. The Ghost is also a fairly well optimized plot-platform - as long as we can break contact (via hyperspace), we can come back as long as we stay out of visual range... Nice.

Hardware is at least one place where the franchise never fails to deliver

And I rather like the Mandolorian-punk girl. Its a fair interpretation of the creed in my mind and there is just nothing wrong with girls watching the show seeing a teen female Mando' who can more than pull her own weight. And blow shit up. And blow more shit up. Then two-pistol down some stormtroopers before blowing more shit up.

I was always predisposed to liking Sabine, but her voting with Zeb to leave Ezra to rot in the 1st ep sold me. Relatedly I'm warming to Zeb already more than I thought I would given his write-up which was typically framed in terms of his relationship with Ezra

And yes, their astromech is wonderfully guttural and crotchety.

He seems to be speaking a dialect of gonk rather than the 'binary' that Artoo uses.

Curiously, I'm looking forward to an occasional tie-in cross-over action with the Force Unleashed. Bail Organa is a start. More will almost certainly follow.

Hopefully none of them will involve Starkiller and as such the appearance of jedi & their ilk will be kept to an absolute minimum

See Jason, Freddy, Candyman, and More in this Slasher High School romance video

If you know your genre classics you'll see both endings coming, but it's an amusing way to spend 5 minutes.

Janus waves Creamor away as she takes off her crown. The pretty young man evaporates, revealing the familiar green-skinned half-elven form she usually wears. After stuffing a washcloth in the doomed apothecary's mouth, she strips out of her clothes and clambers into the bath.

Where the blood taking in Brandescar had been the messy work of someone at the end of their resources, there is a surgical precision in play here. His head is carefully turned aside. Razor sharp fangs that are a gift from her goddess sink into the exposed artery. Warm blood full of life and history flows into her mouth.

She doesn't need to drain him for this to work. But she does anyway.

And she lets her body work its magic with what it's been given.

Anyone watch </Scorpion>? I just had it on in the background while getting ready for the local RPG con tomorrow. Bit of an eyerolling premise, but it's amazing at how easily watchable something becomes when Robert Patrick has a role in it.

"It would make it easier to clean up after ourselves," Janus agrees to the suggestion. "Since you already have hold of the top half, I'll take his legs."

Feats can only be taken once unless specifically pointed out in their benefit text.

Doctor Who: Waters of Mars -- A fairly standard base under siege story, it provides useful inspiration if you want to use zombieism as an intelligent (alien) disease with goals rather than uncontrolled wildfire. Also lets you connect zombies to global warming and related environmental mismanagement.
