Also does this supercede/compliment the Stormbringer?

I feel much smaller, but not in a bad way.

Thank you, Mr. A.

Complete with elaborate detailing of the sexual needs of the immortal avatar of the Death Goddess, a "young girl, dressed in a gothic lolita fashion and armed with a massive axe" because it's not really Japanese 'til someone is trying to fuck a child. Tongue

Interesting idea otherwise.

Yeah, not going to defend it on that front, but its not like I have any alternates to go to, now is there?

Indeed, and I'm not putting that on you.
I find the idea engaging; that kind of genre and setting blending is a thing I quite like and has quite a bit to do with what I like about Shadowrun and Warhammer 40k. That's also why I think SC2.0 and it's fantasy supplements are better than Fantasy Craft.

I am fairly taken with Nechronica for example but again the protagonists are assumed to all be pubescent girls (zombies, kinda) which, however useful in terms of metaphors for life in a setting occupied entirely by the dead, squicks me out for a game with so much emphasis on despair and body horror.

Sort of stumbled onto this while surfing, though I'd seen art of it before: Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri, or as the wiki page says: "Gate: The Self-Defense Forces Fight Like This in That Place".  I like to call it "Redshirt Army's Revenge", since it injects a huge dose of Reality straight to the fantasy heart, aka "GUNS BEAT SWORDS".  And not some sort of sci-fi mecha weaponry, either, but real actual guns, tanks, and helicopters.

Bonus points for the army in question being the Japanese Self Defense Forces, probably the redshirt army extraordinaire, since the US Army can at least show badassness in a "normal" Earth setting.

It's also massively right wing (like WWII levels of right wing) and every military other than the JSDF are portrayed as worthless incompetents.

That's also no surprise.
I haven't had anything to say in the politics and news thread, but that doesn't mean there's nothing that could be said and on that note here's reports on:
Japan's military expansion.
Japan versus ISIS.
Japan's Right Wing and it's Yakuza ties.

The first link's a little hyperbolic, but the rest is Vice News and they're good.

Looks like King Leoric drops for HotS soon enough.

Trying not to be entirely negative here*, but he looks a character I don't care about well designed to be poorly balanced out the gate as well as being proof of how shallow Blizzard's lore really is. Tongue

That's if "The Butcher" didn't make that obvious enough already. Roll Eyes

I'm predicting Deckard Cain for playable hero by 2016. Tongue

*trying and failing, to be candid.


Edit: in fact, I even have a solution: Cairn Bloodhoof.

Refluff all the glowey blue evil skele-power into glowey green nature power, change Entomb's visuals into a wall of totems, and draw up a new sprite -bloody everything else can stay the same.

Same animations -a totem instead of a mace, same powers (died, but in Ancestor Form helping out!), same Talent (Shaman get a self-rez after all), and a honking huge Tauren who could work virtually identically AND not be a joke character (ETC, kek) nor a slurry of tropes capped of by "kekekekekekekekekSKULLS" like Leoric's entirely forgettable ass.

Seriously. He was a subchapter of Diablo 3's first act. He's less important than "The Butcher" -and that's difficult.

I am now sad.
Fuck.
That's not easy any more, but I am now sad. Goddamnit. Undecided

What...what the hell.

Edit: and yeah, btw?
Build a society that thinks that the world owes it nothing and watch it venerate owing nothing right back. Tongue
Fucking imbeciles.

Bows are consistently some of the grossest over-performers in any fantasy RPG, and crossbows some of the least useful.
I like TKDB's revisions. They're useful, balanced, and grant room for some freakin' variability in who does what and how.
Keep it up.

Might have some minis for RAHEROes.  Now if only they could design an assault rifle that didn't make me partially cringe.  Tongue

I had that reaction as well.

edit: oh and their tag reminded me of Ariadne.

That seems like an ambitiously ordinary character with an unremarkable weapon and a bizarrely vague backstory.
I'm almost confused. Huh?

...well, granting that 76's story is from his perspective and that there's no reason he would know more about what happened than anyone else.

The "we won the battles but lost the wars because everything wasn't perfect forever afterwards" angle seems shallow though.

If Blizzard was aiming for Captain America they fell very short.

Edit: I'm wagering that Reaper is Reyes, 76's former battle-brother turned nemesis.
