I was just reading through the monster section again, and I noticed something that hadn't really registered before (maybe because I'm not used to medusae having wings).  Are gorgons and greater gorgons supposed to be able to fly?  I ask because neither one of them has a flight speed listed...

Depending on the context, bandits or other human NPC's could make good substitutes for goblins.

Great news, Jeff! How many were made in total? And now that you are a confirmed success http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png
, are you preparing your manse in Tahiti? Or do you prefer a location closer to Kthulu?

About 1,150 all sold from my home office, no distribution! ;)

Probably a castle in Wales. ;)
 

Beaumaris is a fine fixer-upper!!
 

Or as they spell it in Welsh, "Ffallothumfforallyraffothallymalloffam".

I got the first volume of Carbon as well - great stuff!  I think maybe I like it even better than the second volume.  Storms at Sea is my favorite of the three though - good neo-pulp story and fantastic illustrations. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

I printed out play copies from the pdf's and had them spiral-bound at Staples (as a bonus, they're larger and easier to read).  No one else is laying a finger on any part of my boxed set. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Yes.  Waiting for all of the athletes drop their pants did delay the game for a bit.

Wish I could help, but I'm not doing so great at the moment.  More pain and new medications.  Sorry. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

If you want to make your own, I recommend HeroMachine3.  It's free and fairly flexible.

I hope so. I was working on one last year, but I haven't made much progress since I herniated four discs in my back. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png

It's all I can do to drag myself to and from work at this point, I'm afraid.

Hope this works out over the year.  Back pain is very debilitating and I feel very bad for you.
 

Thanks. I'll get through it. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Man, BA23, that sucks. I'm really sorry. Shout out if there's anything we can do to help!

I am going to try try try try to both play more often in 2017 and to get an actual full adventure written down in a way that's more than just notes for my gang of maniacs.

Definitely will be at GaryCon. Running two AS&SH games there.

Thanks. I'll just have to live vicariously through you guys. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

I thought it was pretty good. It made me laugh to see how peevish and surly Eva Green always looked. Not every actress can pull that off (being French probably helps).

There are some convenient words that tell me when I can save my money, such as "Fate", "Monte Cook", "story-focused", "story game", "class-free", "narrative-focused", "universal RPG", "Rifts", and "White Wolf".  So it looks like I'm all good here, apart from anything Jeff might publish of course. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png
