I don't have my FC book handy, but there is a limit on the number of Prizes (magic items) that a player can have, I forget exactly what the number is again or based.   That being said, FC is balanced enough you can play without having any magic items at all.

And another thing to remember, although FC is a D20 based system, that's where most of the similarities end, so direct conversions from other games is not as straight forward as you might thing.   Not that it can't be done, guys on this board excel at coming up with ideas/conversions/strange ways to do things.  Just got to ask.

For the Gnome, if he takes the Sorcerer Specialty, he gets any 1 Species feat.  So this would allow to take a second level 1 only  feat, such as Elf Blood from Adventure Companion.

Also, keep in mind that in FC, your origin also helps define who you are.

Species/Talent defines who you are.
Specialty defines what you do.
Class defines how you do it.

And the variation are numerous and varied on how you can get to the same spot.

I think it would be better to build a ground up trilogy based on the 'verse already set up by the first movie and the TV shows, but this could turn out decent, maybe better.
It would but Emmerich has never recognized the TV Shows.  To him, canon is the lone movie they made.  He wanted to do a trilogy back then, but MGM decided on a TV Show.    As long as they don't just rehash the movie as the first one, I think I could be fine with that.

Start here:  http://www.crafty-games.com/content/origin-creation-guidelines

That should help explain things a bit.

Not until after Gen Con, but relatively soon after there will be a pretty big update about Spellbound, and pre-order customers will be - let's call it "very pleased" for now.

Finally had a chance to download and play Shadowrun Returns.  Finished it after work this evening.

It's a good little game with some long term promise even if it does not have a lot of meat on the bones at the moment.  For the interested, here's my spoiler free reveiw in spoiler tags to limit the space it takes up.

Ok, having played the pnp game since v1 (shudder),  I will have to check this out now.

Don't the cons over there have any sort of priority access package?

Some do - Gen Con for example - but most don't. Comic-Con specifically doesn't. Everything is first come, first served - save exclusives, which are a nightmare the likes of which die hard panel junkies like myself shudder to even consider.


See, this to me is just unreal.  A celebration of all things geek, and someone hasn't come up with a nifty technical way to make it better.  That is just a disgrace.  I guess the downside might be that you find out no one really likes something, cause they don't have to  sit there waiting for the next panel.

Since I never played the original Tribes I can't make an accurate comparison, but I can say that it isn't like the newer Tribes, what with the skiing around and stuff.  It's controls more like Unreal Tournament with jetpacks.  Also, the main draw isn't the PvP as much as it is the randomly generated, and player driven, PvE events.
Mostly what you will be doing is running around, usually in groups, hitting the ground with a hammer trying to find rich mineral deposits before dropping a mining thumper, at which point you then fight off waves of giant bugs.  Occasionally the "Chosen", basically evil humanoid aliens, will spawn and head towards the nearest human outpost, at which point you can either take out their spawn points, defend the outpost, or retake an already fallen outpost.  And then there are the Melding Tornadoes.  Man those are fun with a large group of people.

Got it. Skiing was in the first, but it was more a result of the physic engine and continually jumping down going down hill to the point you could generate some serious speed.  That was a blast.

So there's this thing called Firefall.
Apparently it aims to be a shooty sci-fi MMO.
And it's having an open beta weekend.
And here's a link!

I've already played a pair of those.  It's rather fun jetting around shooting things, and hunting down tornadoes is always interesting.  Gonna have to see if they added anything this time around, though.

So would someone who has played this, say its somewhat like Tribes from back in the day?

Yeah, I noticed David Belle in the cast too!

Wonder if Jean Reno shows up somewhere...

Nice, a Luc Besson film.
