Re: Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Each episode is about 2 hours long with five episodes.

So, about 10 hours long with many an extra hour or two.

It's a very good game, IMHO.

Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm

So, anyone played Life is Strange and looking forward to the prequel?

I know I am.

Who knew I'd adore a game about a time-traveling teenage girl?

Re: Marvel "Legacy", plus other books being cancelled

Re: Secret Avengers Cap I'm a big fan of Hydra as an enemy and love when they show up with their various complicated plans and actions to conquer the world. Them taking over the United States is something which I certainly feel like works as a plotline but I may be projecting. Long before Trump was ...

Re: Dresden File discussion

I'm a die hard Molly shipper and am kind of sick of Jim dangling the plot in front of Harry then shoving it away.

Re: Marvel "Legacy", plus other books being cancelled

Re: The Hydra- Captain America? Honestly, I'm of the mind the reaction was a little over-the-top. Then again, I assumed this would never stick and was just an attempt to do what has happened before with superheroes by showing who Captain America IS by showing who Captain America ISN'T. That's why US...

Re: Lucifer's Star (formerly Black Hole) a setting of space fleets, starfighters, and laser swords

How dark is the Spiral? Well, really, it depends on how you want to play it. The design goal was to make sure nobody is entirely clean but everyone also has redeeming qualities. The Commonwealth of Interstellar Systems is an expansionist pseudo-democracy like Firefly's Alliance but it's not a gover...

The History of the Spiral part 3 1000 - 1008 N.C. The last three years have proven to be the most destructive since the Great Crash as the discovery of an ancient nearly-intact civilization of alien artifacts resulted in an increased conflict between The Archduchy of Crius and Commonwealth. Believi...

History of the Spiral part 2 800 - 900 N.C. Ironically, the Luddite tendencies of humanity's many abandoned colonies made it possible for a few Cognition A.I. to survive. Safely tucked away in isolated deep space installation with quantum entanglement communication networks combined with jumpdrive-...

History of the Spiral part 1 0-100 N.C. The New Calendar begins not with a bang but a whimper as humanity was on the verge of collapse with an exhausted planet, population growth having reached critical levels, and the government having become totalitarian just to survive. Humanity's "rescue" came ...

Re: Lucifer's Star (formerly Black Hole) a setting of space fleets, starfighters, and laser swords

Setting Lucifer's Star takes place in The Spiral in the year 1008 of the New Calendar. The Spiral is the Orion Arm of the Milky Way galaxy and a territory which (largely) belongs to human beings. It is, notably, a backward and largely uninhabited region of the galaxy which the greater galactic comm...

Lucifer's Star (formerly Black Hole) a setting of space fleets, starfighters, and laser swords

Hey guys, For those who are long time forumites, I actually had plans on doing an RPG for a space opera setting to accompany my Halt Evil Doer! setting. Eventually, Halt Evil Doer! warped into my wildly successful (okay, maybe just successful) Supervillainy Saga books. Well, I never did get around t...
