  1. I hope this game does well. I really do. My only experience with Rokugan was from D&D 3E with the Oriental Adventures handbook. I loved it. We played that homebrew campaign for 5 years. Some of my fondest RPG memories are from L5R... that said, I don't want anything to take away from Netrunner. It is my all time favorite game and a big part of my life. I will definitely buy the core set and the packs for L5R, but Netrunner speaks to my soul. Cyberpunk gives me hope for the future- Asian fantasy is just a fun distraction.
  2. Thanks! With 6 subforums it's hard to keep up with everything that's posted
  3. Am I the only person on here that would love to have a book for playing this from the Imperial side? I think a campaign could already be run with the majority of classes, and the newly announced soldier book should fill in any gaps, but I think an Imperial Sourcebook with info on ISB Agents, Inquisitors, and Imperial officers, as well as Imperial regulations, practices, and procedures would be amazing. Has anyone on here run a campaign with Imperial PC's? Thoughts? Ideas?
  4. Nothing. But Krampus brought us a flooded downstairs from the thunderstorms and tornados over the last 2 days in TN... Merry f***ing Christmas...
  5. I have the feeling that ffg's partnership/licenses/whatever with Disney and Star Wars comes with some advance info on ships, and to stay on-message/brand-current ffg is going to be focusing primarily on Rebels and Ep VII, as cool as it would be to see more old SW Legends ships (dunelizard)
  6. Kom'rk/ Gauntlet is 53m, Ghost is 43m. I doubt we will see anything non-epic larger than the Ghost.
  7. After comparing, they have similar silhouettes, though the engine nacelles are vastly different and the main hull of the Shadow Caster is more of a disc shape. Still, spiritual successor?
  8. Apparently it was designed as a variation on Asajj Ventress's Banshee which was already a variation on the Republic Gunship.
  9. Just finished s02ep07 of SW:R "Bloodsisters". Ketsu Onyo's ship the Shadow Caster could make for an excellent S&V Outrider equivalent. http://starwarsrebels.wikia.com/wiki/Shadow_Caster Discuss
  10. Netrunner: 100%, with multiples of some packs (i keep about 10 decks constructed) Star Wars: 100% with multiples of some packs Game of Thrones 2nd Edition: Core Lord of the Rings: Core
  11. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you the new 360!
  12. Lol...Apparently Darth Ruin has never done a K-Turn
  13. Again, partially joking, partially serious. I am very familiar with AA/ 12 steps. My wife is a banker, she gets up-to-the-minute reports on our account- she knows every penny i spend. Everything is fine. Post was meant as a humorous hyperbolic take on real events.
  14. Hi. My name is Chris, and I have a problem. I am addicted to X-Wing. My habit started simply enough- Wil Wheaton's Table Top video got me to buy the core set...within a month I had $300 worth of spaceships (back when Imperial Aces had just come out). But I was still just a social player. After 6 months I traded my collection to get into recreational LCG use (don't get me started on Netrunner and Star Wars- there needs to be separate support groups for those). I thought I would be fine. Casual. No one got hurt. But something kept pulling at me. I was sad to see my beautiful little spaceships go. I missed them. My wife didn't understand. I would go cruising the forums late at night just to see what was happening in the meta. I kept being pulled back. I couldn't resist. 3 months ago I fell off the wagon. Hard. In 8 weeks I had sold all of my comics and TPB's ($500), sold my entire Munchkin and SJGames collection (I used to be a MIB for them- $200), and then I started selling plasma (another $250) so that I could buy EVERYTHING(most things in multiples)... I was literally selling myself to get my X-Wing fix. My wife didn't mind since I hadn't spent any actual money on X-Wing, just money that I had already spent on other nerd stuff, most of it before we were married. 2 Weeks ago, I started spending actual money on X-Wing. I am out of other collections to sell. I know I should be saving for the Raider (if it ever comes out) and Wave 7, but I had to get my new-ship-fix. I bought a 5th bomber. I commissioned a HWK repaint. I bought *another* set of dice. My wife doesn't know yet. I am spending money on X-Wing that I should be spending on real things, like beer. The worst part is, I'm not even playing. Sure, I would love to play, but my wife hates the game. And because of my work schedule, my free-time is so sporadic I can't set and keep a play-date with friends or at my FLGS. I just "fiddle the fiddly-bits" as my wife says, and then re-arrange my collection every other day. Today I had a breakthrough. I had spent the money I had saved for my dad's Father's Day present on another Imperial Aces set. I was ready to just head over this weekend empty handed because I clearly needed 2 more spaceships more than my dad needed a new 30-06 die for his reload press. But I couldn't do it. I turned around (u-turn on a busy street) and took those spaceships back. I have vowed not to buy any more unnecessary space ships, and to only buy new space ships in moderation and with money saved for them specifically. I can do this, one day at a time. May the Force grant me the serenity to accept the green-dice I can not change, the courage to change the red-dice I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. ***This is only part joke- all of that post is true. It is not meant to diminish or mock anyone who is or is a recovering alcoholic- I have been to my fair share of meetings to support friends and family. And I work for a brewery, so I super-advocate responsible drinking. This is simply a tongue-in-cheek/satirical recounting of my X-Wing experience that I think many of us on the forums can relate to. Hopefully my sharing helps. Addiction- to anything- can be damaging to ourselves and those around us.*** Fly Casual, and Fly Responsibly.
  15. Since we do not all share a common lexicon for contractions and acronyms, let us endeavor to use clear speech, full words, and direct and simplified language. Part of what makes reading the forums so taxing is the over use of acronyms, slang terms, and word contractions- real or made up. If I never see the letters "OP" again, it will be too soon.
