1  Legacy Games / Spycraft 2.0 / Re: So... Spycraft 3.0 is a bit down the road. What about that ol' 2.0? on: July 03, 2015, 04:32:47 PM
Starting the process of a new SteamCraft game...

This time based around the idea of ground war between the UK and Prussia. (A bit after the Franco-Prussian war. Timeline changes - the united Germanies are called Prussia, not Germany. Kaiser Willhelm was assassinated, and Bismark was acting Regent when he was also assassinated.)

Mostly spawned by a Dreamforge Leviathan Crusader that one of my friends got on sale...

Sad thing - he got the bloody 'umungous 28mm version - but I would be wanting the 15mm version for this game.


British


Prussian

I would be using them for smaller mechs in 28mm - which would make them about twenty feet tall.

Not sure if I would make the Leviathans vehicles or Transmechs....

And the Germans may be replaced by Russians - but somehow the Mortis just looks more German to me. (Anybody familiar with 17th century German memento mori would know why....)

The Auld Grump

*EDIT* I would have to add churning black smoke to the stacks, to give it a properly grotty steampunk feel.

I would have sworn that he would make it past a hundred.

An actor of the old school - who treated acting as a job and a career - not merely a vehicle for his ego.

And so, very, very many movies....

Rest in peace, Sir Christopher - you will be most sorely missed.

I have been introducing Megan to Faun....

Pagan, kind of Gothy... I am not sure how she missed them.

Hmm, given the retro-future feel of Fallout, neither of those is a particularly good fit.

In Boston it would be easy - Fenway has been around a long time.

Maybe running back Mark Light field, running it back to before the renovations?...

Nothing that I have found around Miami looks quite old enough....

The Auld Grump
How old is the Orange Bowl?

V

Aside from having been torn down in 2008, it is perfect! Smiley

So, I guess that it was never torn down for my setting! I'll roll it back to being The Burdine Stadium and let the PCs puzzle over it if they must.

I was beginning to think that I would have to use a high school gym or something, thanks!

The Auld Grump

And, looking at the trailer for Fallout 4... it is not against canon for a place to be featured in the game in spite of having been demolished in the real world.

There is a Boston neighborhood that was destroyed the year that I was born that shows up in the trailer....  Grin

It was bound to happen...

Bones III....



And Tiamat is finally stirring....

(click to show/hide)
People have been requesting a Tiamat in Bones since the first Bones Kickstarter....
*EDIT* Spoilered - Tiamat is a huge picture....

Now why does this feel like a Spycraft group?... -


Okay, pretty much all of A Girl and Her Fed feels like Spycraft....

Jack Ely - singer of Louie, Louie. Only one hit, but it influenced the world. (What's he saying? I don't know, but it's gotta be dirty!)

How do you think players would take Caliber I missions to investigate the likes of Louie, Louie, like the real world agencies had to do?

The Auld Grump - your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to play every KISS album backwards, looking for signs of Satan worshiping.

We're planning on waiting to see SC3 before giving up on SC2.0.

Mostly because I know that SC 2 is versatile enough to do what I want it to do. (Mostly steampunk.)

I borrowed a song from Megan's collection as the theme song for a not-villain possible Lucifer in a possible super heroes game - Green Day's Blvd. of Broken Dreams.

It is unsure whether the character is Lucifer... or maybe just a superhuman breakthrough that has a Satanic spin.

What is known is that several other beings share his Origin - and claim to be Angels....

One world weary being that does not share that Origin, but calls himself Michael, fully supports 'Lucifer's' decision to walk away from the conflict. ('Lucifer' has decided to 'live the cliche' - and is working as a PI in Boston, because every earth bound supernatural creature ends up being a PI.... Tongue )

Michael claims to remember when he and Lucifer were friends....

The 'Angels' are bad news, as are the fundamentalists trying to jump start Armageddon.

'Lucifer' just wants to walk away from the whole mess - and God has not made His opinion known.

The Auld Grump - 'Lucifer' does spend a goodly amount of time feeling sorry for himself....

Terry Pratchett's death has brought tears to my eyes.

A man of wit and humor - with a vast compassion for the human condition.

I think that I will go back to crying now.

Leonard Nimoy - the original Spock - dead at 83. Sad

And there goes a big chunk of my childhood.
