  1. YES! That's it! I thought there was something like Obsidian that Id looked at before, just couldn't remember. Thanks!
  2. Sorry if I wasn't clear, I am not looking for an app for actual online playing, but rather a place to meet, discuss, post, organize and schedule.
  3. So now that Google+ is being shut down, I am tasked with finding an alternative space for my RPG group for our online discussions and scheduling. We don't play exclusively online, but we post scheduling, discussions, post documents, characters and sometimes have RP based posts. Google+ was perfect for this, and Facebook groups were awful (not going back there). I am looking at Slack right now but I am not sure its going to work. So I am looking for some recommendations. I don't necessarily need specifically a Social Media app, but I need something that is web based and can be used from mobile devices as well, so most likely will need an Android/Ios app available. I know there are RPG specific services but I don't know if these are specifically for online playing only, or will fit our specific needs. I am willing to look at a pay for service if its not too pricey and meets our needs. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Some great ideas here! Thank you all for the input!
  5. I have my group going through Debts To Pay right now, but I've changed it up a bit. Bargo sent them on the mission to the mine to "asses the value", but I had my main NPC intervene before they left letting them know that he was "buying out" Bargo and forcing him to an early retirement (because he's such an awful crime lord), and he told them to meet him on The Wheel from 'Beyond the Rim' after they complete the mission at the mine. They will eventually find out that the Debts To Pay missions was not about the mine finances at all but what was found at the mine, an ancient artifact of some kind, that will quickly find its way to the auction from Jewel of Yavin, rather than the silly jewel being the object that’s auctioned it will be this artifact. But before that they will head back to The Wheel. I really like the idea of the station and will likely make it the main "HQ" so to speak, or at least where my NPC will be working from. I want something really cool to happen there before they figure out the artifact is on Bespin being auctioned, but I can't think of anything cool enough! Investigating the Artifact and who took it from the mine and where it went is part of what they will do there, but I want something else to make it more of an adventure rather than just an investigation. Any ideas? EDIT: I meant The Wheel, I originally said The Ring, I updated my post.
  6. They don't really 'do cards instead of books'. All of the adversaries in the card decks were pulled from sources already published in the various books.
  7. Yeah, I get what you're saying. I've been waiting with baited breath for months for this book, and now that I have it, I find myself asking "Now What"? This is one thing that I really dislike about FFG. I think it would have made this product so much better if they had announced maybe just a few more products coming rather than just the one book.
  8. And I just got an Amazon notification that my order for Horror on the Orient Express will be arriving tomorrow. Of course I will want to convert this behemoth of a campaign to the Genesys system!
  9. Also, I just absolutely love all things Lovecraft, and while CoC is exceptional, especially 7th Ed, I am truly sold on the Genesys system (since EotE really), hook, line and sinker, and it is unlikely I will be playing any other RPG system in the near future. So I am really, really hoping for an Arkahm Horror setting book.
  10. I never said its wrong, I just feel it deserves its own setting. I was more puzzled by the fact that they explicitly give examples of settings using their own games like Tannhauser, TI, Runebound etc., but nothing mentioned of Arkham Horror. Forgottenlores speculation is sufficient for me though. Makes sense.
  11. I know there's the section on Horror as a Tone, but i am wondering why it didn't get a Setting? And why there's no mention of a Arkham/Lovecraftian setting. Does Chaosium have a lock on all things Lovcraftian in the RPG space?
  12. I could have sworn there was some sort of hint from an FFG person, maybe in an interview or something, that an Android setting book would be coming soon.
  13. Well said Phil! I have this exact same problem right now! I am finally done with D&D 5e, campaign finished and I have no desire to go back to it. Were full on moving forward with EoTE, finally! I have been dying to play many other systems as well though, Call of Cthulhu, The One Ring, etc. Now, I DONT NEED TO LEARN THEM! I already told my group I will be converting 'Tomb of Annihilation' to Genesys! I am very much looking forward to this!
  14. I just don't understand why FFG still shows it as "In Development". If its not really even at the printer yet, no way it will be here in Q4. GTM magazine has a specific release date in October, I don't remember the exact date, mid-October sometime I think. I checked with a friend that has a distributor, they don't have exact dates yet either.
