Comic-Con Justice League Trailer

Nothing has changed for me. The Superman they reference throughout has not been allowed to actually exist in the DC Cinematic Universe – he was still a super (no pun intended) rookie in Man of Steel and in Murderman vs Mopeyman, he was basically a blank slate comprised of angst, brooding and mopeyness. Diana is still awesome, Flash is growing on me (though I still don’t like the casting), and Jason Mamoa looks like he’s having a blast as Aquaman. Cyborg is still a non-character to me and, well, I’ve gone on record as liking Affleck as Bruce Wayne but kind of hating his murderous Batman … nothing changes there either. And knowing that Joss Whedon is the shadow director for this? Honestly, that doesn’t help much given the mess that was Avengers 2…

So, I’ll be waiting until I get a review from someone whose opinion I really trust before I watch this.

GURPS, Dresden Files & Jade Court Vampires

In sessions 4 and 5 of “Clean Slate,” a gathering of vampires is intended to take place. While it is ostensibly just a negotiation between Red Court and White Court, I intended to include Jade as well (who have allied with Diana Raith, the White Court vamp for … reasons.) This means that in the climactic encounter, the PCs may face off with Jades so I absolutely have to figure out how this vampire court actually functions in my version of the Dresden Files universe.

Red Sky Volume 6 Planning, Session 5

So now I have the planned four scenes for Session 1 of “Clean Slate” squared away and a bare bones for session 2, 3 & 4, it’s time to look at session 5. Obviously this is before I start amending things after introducing stuff to the PCs in the previous sessions – we all know how no plan of battle survives contact with the enemy … or Player Characters, so I fully expect the actual gametime result to be at least a little different (and perhaps drastically so) than this. At this point in the planning, this is more “bare bones” than the others.

The 13th Doctor

Sigh. Thirteen is a woman.

Well, that’s it for me. Been a fan since … hmm … Three, I think? Four was always my favorite as I really started getting into Who, but whatever. Enjoy your social justice nonsense, BBC. I expect this to fail and fail hard.

Red Sky Volume 6 Planning, Session 3
