My issue with the same I’ve had with the OGL, GURPS, Savage Worlds, Palladium, etc. I feel like a games system really helps establish the way it’s played and can really get you into a game. I remember the 3.0 D20 OGL(when the D&D 3rd edition rules went open source) boom where every company was making a D20… Read more
I think one of the benefits of the Cypher system is it takes maybe 15 minutes tops to explain basically all of the rules and is incredibly easy for a DM to improvise on the fly with.
I’m firmly on this team. We need a Bizarro Musk who is extremely reasonable, sane, and dedicated to colonizing Venus.
Team Venutian Cloud Cities all the way
She was one of the younglings from the opening scene, guarantee it.
I really like that the Mjolnir wasn’t glued or welded back together but is an amalgam of the broken shards and that Jane Fos-Thor uses that to her advantage.

You’re either canceled too early, or you live long enough to become The Simpsons.
The Barsoom series was deserving of a movie that did it justice. My boomer dad grew up reading them and got me (Gen-Xer) into them too. But ironically by the time they finally made it, what made it original back in the pulp sci-fi days had been done to death in modern cinema. Read more
My guess is that Disney made the deal with Cameron long before George Lucas offered to sell out to them and they were obligated to see it through. Obviously, they ended up owning Avatar too, so it worked out.

My guess is that the Disney Fox merger really messed with… Read more
This was before the studios learned that all anyone will watch is sequels and expansions on existing IP.
I remember there being a group of people addicted to watching the film and would fall into a depression afterwards. It was their escape from reality.
About the only thing that was really interesting about it was the idea that all life on the planet could jack in to each other. That was kind of interesting, but the rest was just yawn.
It’s REAL hard for the last-of-a-series to get a novel nod unless the individual books had all been nominated along the way. I’m thrilled that the Best Series category exists now, so something as brilliant as The Green Bone Saga gets the recognition it deserves.
At least Fonda Lee and Ada Palmer got series shout-outs, I guess - Jade Legacy and Perhaps the Stars were my #1 and #2 books for the past few years, and I can’t begin to understand for the life of me how something like Project Hail Mary beat those both out for Best Novel.
