It was sixty minutes of movie in two and a half hours. I watched the sucker on I-MAX because I knew I'd only really like it once before all the holes and problems caught up with me so I wanted it big.

I went to hear Peter Colins do classic dialog and see giant robots figh other giant robots. I got some of both, not enough. Dozens of needless story elements, an hour of unless footage, and no character developement (I wouldn't even say under developed characters because there was nothing).

I got what I wanted, wrapped in alot that I didn't.

Kinda like a Kebab

While working I've been sneaking my headphones on to listen to Tom's Call of Cthulhu Actual play debut.
So far i'm 2hrs 40mins through and I'm really impressed.

Nearly got caught out as i had to choke back laughter at...
Tom "His arm bends like this"
Ross "I shoot him"

Pure class!

I have to say that I personally really like DnD 4E both as a DM and a player.
Player-wise I enjoy the fact that I can customize my character in a wide variety of ways without being useless or breaking the game and as a DM I was just sick of having to go over the 20 odd books of supplemental material to find what spell the wizard wanted to cast.

Wizards did take over the game in 3.5E, While running the City of the Spider Queen Campaign it was totally broken from the Sun Mage (prestige class) tearing apart encounters single handed with a fireball. I was really naive to let that class into the game because of the ridiculous bonuses the class had against Undead and Drow specifically. The whole thing bummed the players and me out especially after setting up the map, reading up on the tactics (not to mention plumbing the 20+ books for details on the NPC and players abilities), Setting everything up to be blown out in 1 round. My fault entirely for not checking on the details of the prestige class and trusting the player.

Ted the Caver is pretty freaky, would make a good premise for a Cthulhu one-shot.

If anyone remembers the Childhood terror of Watership down here's a nice little clip from a movie from the same guy who wrote it.

Remember that this was made for a PG certificate, I pity the poor child who's parent thinks this is good for him/her to watch

Hey all,

My name is Chris, 26yrs old (going on 12). I live in Plymouth, UK and to get money I work as a Microbiology Technician at the local Hospital. I discovered RPPR through Itunes whilst looking for random Gaming podcasts. After listening to Gamer the podcasting (RIP) and Dragons landing I stumbled over RPPR and it blew the others out of the water, rekindled my love of DMing, kept my brain buzzing with ideas and has given me a nagging insatiable hunger for gaming.

Been DMing for approx. 14 years starting with Warhammer fantasy roleplay (WHFRP) and on to Deadlands, Shadowrun, Dnd (3,3.5 and 4) and SLA Industries. Very much like Josh, I too ended up being the protagonist to my slightly apathetic Gamer group (If I didn't start something i.e. organize the where and when, nothing happened) which will probably be the next topic I post.

Thanks for making my work life much more bearable for approx. 70mins at a time.

Edit- Forgot Call of Cthulhu (D20 + Chaosium) plus Lorien Trust Larp and Heroes for Hire Larp

Tried it...

0-30mins - tried to learn how to operate it
30mins - 2hrs tried to convert a campaign I wrote up into the database
After 2 hrs gave up and tried to stop swearing.

Hope this is helpful!
