If you'd only asked this back in January Sad

Does anyone know if any of the spycraft ccg deck building threads from the old AEG forums were ever archived before they went away?

There's  a thread on the AEG board that might be of interest: http://www.alderac.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=264&t=60145

Not AEG forums, but:

http://forum.rpg.net/archive/index.php/t-343159.html

https://www.reddit.com/r/spycraftccg



i know I wish i would have asked then. A buddy of mine was over and we were talking about how much we enjoyed the CCG and the Sniper League Tourneys I used to run at the game store. Another friend was there and started asking about it. So I pulled some old notebooks with deck concepts, but they were all just roughs. I posted the finished decks in the forums back at the old AEG pages. I never thought to save them somewhere I wished I had now.

I'm loving the new Shadowrun as well. Man I hope they keep doing more. I'm excited to see how they do BattleTech. I'll be jumping in on that Kickstarter this fall.

Been watching the Vikings on the History channel and I've enjoyed it quite a bit so far. Anyone else checking this out?

I finally got around to watching the 3rd D&D movie The Book of Vile Darkness. I dvr'd it when it was on sci fi back in Nov/Dec and kept putting it off until finally i had nothing to watch but it. You know what? I actually liked it, it wasn't a great movie or even what i would call a good movie, but a decent movie and heads and shoulders above the other two. I would've been pissed if i had spent money on but it was worth a watch on a dreary jan evening on the tv.

i enjoyed the movie immensely.

I liked the addition of Radagast even with him being kind of scatter-brained and the foreshadowing of the spiders in Mirkwood that was in his part.

Azog was cool though a buddy of mine hated that addition. I enjoyed it for it making the walking bits a bit more action-y. For those that are unaware of Azog is an actual character he was slain by Dain Ironfoot in the Battle of Azanulbizar.

The Middle Earth UN was a bit unnecessary I would agree. I would imagine it was setting up the inaction by the Council to do anything about the Necromancer (Sauron) after Gandalf figures out that it's actually him, but that Council doesn't take place until after he goes to Dol Goldur. I would also imagine that the scene with Gladriel and Gandalf is setting up a scene with her coming to his rescue in Dol Goldur.

I'm curious as to where Gandalf gets the key to the mountain. I can't remember if he says in the movie or not. I know in the story he gets it from Thrain when he finds him in the dungeons of the Necromancer, and I thought that they said Azog had killed both Thror, and Thrain.

Goblin-town was a bit bigger than I had envisioned and the goblin king was pretty cool.

The only thing I didn't like was the portrayal of most of the dwarves, maybe it's my preconceived notions of fantasy dwarves, but I didn't care for them overall, and they seemed very much like the Time Bandit dwarves to me.

I really liked the beginning with the Smaug, the exodus of the dwarves, and the bits of the War of Dwarves and Orcs.

So very excited to find out that Elder Sign is available in the Google Play store!  Grin

Tell me how it is.  I picked up an android table from a coworker on the cheap, and I've been looking for good board games for it.

It's a single player experience and I'm really loving it. If you are familiar with the Elder Sign game they do a good translation of it, and it you are not familiar with it and have experience with Arkham Horror it's Arkham Horror Lite.

You put together a team of investigators and explore a the museum, the encounters are random so there's a lot of replay ability there, journey to the otherworlds, and attempt to gather enough elder signs to stop whatever great old one you choose to compete against at the beginning of the game.

They have also got a couple of expansions for it as well for vying against cthulhu and ithaqua (sorry can't spell it w/o looking at it)

It's also in the Steam Greenlight thing, so all you Steam users should go and vote for it to be added to the Steam library.

i'm in the camp that there should be a bit more to hacking than simple downtime checks. the deckers and hacking are iconic to the SR setting and without them i don't think it's SR anymore.

a lot the the talk so far has seemed to me anyway geared towards the hacker taking over an unmanned system.

that being said I have no problem with hacking being reduced to a number of rolls to take over the system that was unmanned or otherwise on automatic, but I on the other hand I would also miss that give and take between a hacker and his opposite number trying to keep him out of the system. which is where I think the hacking DC shines in making that exchange happen, and those beats are intermixed into the regular initiative system. so a competent GM well be able to handle that back and forth and not have a table of players reaching for their phones b/c they are bored.

While I understand that this is desireable, I have a simple question:
Why can't the GC do all that outside of a DC?

He can and I've done it that way in the past, but I've found and my players who have used the hacking dc find that using the dc a more satisfying experience. I think the play between the predator and prey options are what we liked.

Sorry not enough time to get all my thoughts out on a 10 minute work break
