Now, is anyone else watching Dark Matter or Killjoys?

Irritatingly SyFy here isn't showing Killjoys, but is fast tracking Dark Matter. Two episodes in and it's been enjoyably competent, especially the blithe trolling by the android. The only major thing I would change -- apart from the near monochrome visual palette -- is swapping the ending of eps 1 and 2: Five's pronouncement "We're dangerous" works better as a lead in both the events of ep2 and the revelation that 5/6 of the crew are mass murderers and pirates than as the semi tautology it comes across as in the wake of that revelation.

It's not Blake's 7 but it is scratching that itch a little.

I believe it inherited that from the four issue comic book series the first two episodes are 'adapted' from.  Then again, I use 'adapted' because originally because the comic was originally intended as a TV treatment, but was turned into a comic book when it couldn't be sold, and then readapted back into a TV series.

Maybe SyFy doesn't have the rights for Killjoys in Australia. Or maybe they're cowards since it ha a big TV-MA LV warning on it here (for reasons I don't get since it shows at 2200 (iirc, DVRs) and I haven't seen anything worse than what was shown on, say, Galactica.

So, the whole season of Powers was great. If you have a PS+ membership, go watch it and start waiting for season two.

Now, is anyone else watching Dark Matter or Killjoys?

Oh, the season premiere of Rebels is everything I love about Star Wars tabletop games condensed into an hour of TV.

Some more quick questions...
Can you have more than one alignment?
Does Acid Resistance from Angelic Heritage extend to your armor?

No for both.

Because children should not be exposed to Call of Duty.

Completely redundant.

The GM can grant a synergy bonus for any skill and can already grant you a bonus for using another skill first.

Plus haggle doesn't need the help, its already silly easy as long as you remember to boost disposition first.

It's described as an action RPG, and since the voice over talks about balance not lasting and the fact sheet and interviews discuss a war between man/nature and machine, I assume a mix of Skyrim/Witcher and Monster Hunter.

I just wanted to clarify, he gave up trying to fix acting last, and technically his count was 16, his choccobo dropped it to tail end charlie.

He still in worked at kicking ass.

It didn't come up p, but they like the interrupt mechanic too. The priest with the fencing chain and lightning reflexes was a little miffed he doesn't get to use it with total defense, like, ever, but he still likes it.

Ok, so biggish fight last night.

2 Special Monsters
9 Standard Monsters
6 Player Characters
2 Animal Companions
1 Personal Lieutenant

The Sage/Lancer's rolled a 4. Then Roll the Bones triggered... and he rolled a 2. Then he used Seize Initiative... and rolled a 4. At this point he gave up. Smiley

The Burglar got a lot more use out of his Overmatched feat, pulling three or four crits from it, and actually hunting the monsters he would get the double initiative onus against.

I did notice that my players, all else being equal, would choose to attack an opponent with initiative lower than theirs. I sort of exected this to happen. Smiley

You forgot the giant ferret.

But from what you said, this is the sort of world your players would intentionally try to create.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

For the record, this is why Koala's players aren't allowed to have nice things.

I'm trying to remember...

Did you get the Hurt Cartel content? Because there's been a crap load of content and some major changes since the killing Malgus, including a complete rework of Skills and powers and two cap raises to 60.

There's also currently a 12X XP boost for subs until the fall.

The Emperor is the villain for both factions at the moment.

Huh... I guess the old guy is supposed to be the Emperor, I'll have to look up what the expansions adding since I havent played TOR in a few weeks.

Fun fact, the smugler has to distract the Emperor at one point of the quest chain on Zoist. I was not a fan of this plan. Even it did involve telling him he has a small package and is overcompensating.
