Re: Premade D&D Campaigns/settings/adventures

Settings? Eberron.

Halflings on fucking dinosaurs, man.

Also, it's got a fair few adventures out, the whole "1920s with magic instead of tech" thing is cool, and it has halflings on dinosaurs.

Re: Do some of you buy RPG Source books just to read them?

Guilty as charged, although "buy" would be an incorrect term; it's more along of the lines of "acquire," if you get my drift. I've always loved reading rulebooks - my two hobbies are designing worlds and designing wargames/roleplaying games. I tend to collect books obsessively, r...

Edit, to the below: Also, I don't speak it, so why would I have watched anime dubbed in it? So in fact, your grounds for claiming that French dubs are worse than English du...

Re: Anime!

But now, thanks to the miracle of using your brain (and knowing more than one language), you can have the best of both worlds - by watching a dub in a language where dubs aren't horrible (i.e. French). See what I did there? I has smartz. Edit: the English Cowboy Bebop dub was vomit-inducing. So were...

Re: UK gov sells out to media industries.

Edit: Ansob, how much would be enough? If you want to watch/play/listen more than you can afford, you're going to pirate.

Re: Anime!

Haruhi is fucking great, but watch it subbed, not dubbed. Even Crispin Freeman, a known god, couldn't save the Haruhi dub. I don't watch English language dubs. They're universally shit. French dubs, on the other hand, are universally brilliant (except for Ed's annoyingly squeaky voice in FMA). I do...

I'd rather FR died an agonising death than continue in its usual "LOL MAGIC USARS LOL" form, so I'm quite content with this spellplague. As long as Rashemen continues to produce retarded rangers with Spelljammer MC entries, I'll be happy. Either way, D&D needs more Eberron. (Substitute...

Re: UK gov sells out to media industries.

The super-hyper amusing-fun fact about most of piracy is that people would actually prefer to pay for something rather than acquire it illegally; sadly, they can't afford to, so they do. Slashing the price of CDs, DVDs and games in two would probably result in a huge decrease in piracy. I know I'd s...

SupCom, Ep2, UT3 and Crysis.
