Meh on the entire movie, but I freely admit to being an old fuddy duddy. That's supposed to be a bad thing I suppose. :roll:

I generally avoid falling into those Trek vs. Wars.. Trek vs. Galactica.. Old Trek vs. New Trek discussions in order to avoid undue bloodletting. However, I remember hearing that the big competing franchise issue Lucas had was with one of the Lord of the Rings movies, which pretty much blasted at le...

Always in the minority go I, but I didn't care for it at all. I'm sure it will do well though, but I can't estimate what the opening haul will be. I'm not even sure what constitutes a successful opening box office these days. :roll: Drake! Were you the guy they interviewed on tv in this clip? http:...

Sometime in the first week or two, I suspect. I'll try to plan a time to swoop when the theater isn't overcrowded. Since I don't have to coordinate with anyone else, it should be easy (famous last words). I know I won't wait in a long line for it, though. :shock:

I mostly played the original Traveller and that for a very short period of time. I think I played a couple of MegaTraveller games, but I don't remember most of it.

I tried a brief stab (ahem :roll: ) at Stormbringer, but I've forgotten how that went.

Ah yes, Fading Suns --- the stunning handsomeness and vapidity that was Sir Chrysogon Hawkwood, a man who could admire his own reflection for hours without ever understanding what he was looking at. Traveler in it's earliest incarnation GURPS variants that I can remember off hand: Swashbucklers, Cli...

I remember Greyhawk, but I never played it. But we honor it's memory every time we "greyhawk" a scene of carnage we just created.

Another RPG I've played: Space: 1889
