Re: Any D&D 5e conversions?

My Castellia thread has 3e D&D stuff, though the conversions are nowhere near scientific and more just me guessing. http://www.echoesofthemultiverse.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=485&hilit=Castellia Honestly, conversions are more art than science anyway. These are creatures which have remained conceptua...

Re: Warren Ellis - Recent Apology / Allegations Disscussion

He’s actually still got an ongoing. He just isn’t gonna get to write something as part of a tie in to the latest event. Why dose bums. How dare they deny him his God-given right to contribute to a oh wait he's an atheist never mind. I don’t know... no one has an entitlement complex quite like an ol...

Except that being published is not a right, but a privilege, and so denying it to someone ("cancelling them" in your vulgar idiom) is not a crime.

Re: JDRook's Revised DCA Builds - Ares! Arsenal! So! Many! Atoms!!!

I just looked up Jay Scott Pike, the creator of Dolphin; he actually had a long career as a Silver Age/early Bronze Age comic book artist, mostly for Romance, Western, and Jungle comics. He was known for his "good girl" art, and created Jann of the Jungle for Marvel in the 1950s, in addition to Dol...

Re: Warren Ellis - Recent Apology / Allegations Disscussion

You could simply make the statement ‘I am reserving judgement until this is investigated further’. Neutrality is a possible position to take. Stating that Ellis is clearly innocent of wrongdoing on a moral/ethical level as saint_matthew did is taking a clear side and thus making its own accusation a...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

The fact that he didn’t deny but made a mealy mouthed ‘apology’ is perhaps something you should consider in your calculations there.

Why are you so invested anyway? Warren Ellis is not likely to have sex with you, dude.

Or you know.

Between one man and a series of more than thirty-five women he was repeatedly unethical and manipulative towards.

Re: Any D&D 5e conversions?

Hell, M&M 2E still uses the same system as D&D 3.5E for attributes. Beyond that, you can generally get away with eyeballing and playing with ideas and not having to worry about specifics. Just go for something that fits the concept more than the specifics of the rules. These are monsters which have ...

Re: Any D&D 5e conversions?

Honestly I wouldn't worry too much about D&D 5e's specifics.

The 3.5e conversions are close enough to be used without too much trouble. I recommend checking out the Super-Powered Bestiary.

I'm just surprised he didn't include the words "Damn you! Damn you for making me do this!" in his "apology".
I haven't seen an apology that half-arsed since Melanie Martinez.

I actually tend to have issues with faces in artwork at times, so I kinda use the other signifiers to keep track of characters anyway.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Yes, I'm sure that the writer known for making self-inserts who frequently sleep with much younger women despite a hugely imbalanced power dynamic has an absolutely spotless personal record. haha, that was my point in the Discord and I didn't even know about Transmetropolitan or whatever. But it wa...
