That would be either WWF Superstars or WWF WrestleFest, sir. Good luck.

Have you been listening in on my games remotely? I just started a new side-trek adventure that is part Phantom (the 90's movie) and part Indie Jones Crystal Skulls. In the underdark. In the middle of a war between genocidal dark elves and a tribe of "endangered" dino-people.

You don't really need miniatures and battle maps, at least not until you're onto the game. Minis are expensive and all the theater-of-the-mind works great in 5e

I will second most of this. I haven't checked out 5th ed since the beta test packets, but it seemed very easy to get into, and character creation was much simpler than in the version I use- but then, I am a veteran player and D&M, so learning the new system was just a matter of adjusting to the new ruleset.

I appreciate the input, thanks. Who knows when we'll get to it, but it was so cheap I figured I'd never have a better chance, and now we can jump in whenever. One day, hopefully.
If you have any questions, you can always pm me for advice or suggestions! I have oodles of books and modules on hand for answers to just about anything you need! (And I run a weekly game myself, so I can help with hows and the dos and do nots of running the game. My first suggestion is to have her play a fighter, and just tweak it to fit with the skills of Xena, such as preferred weapon, acrobatic feats, and seduction.)

Thanks! At least I know a couple folks here who've been doing this for a while.

I remember seeing a rulebook for an old DC Universe-based game at my comic shop a while back. If they still have it I'll pick it up one'a these days.

Do you remember the title? There have been several superhero-based games, like Mutants and Masterminds, Spycraft, Champions, etc....

Free Speech is being severly restricted these days.

logged in to another site, and got this message.

'you where banned for
Not respecting creators of New She-Ra show'

unbelievable. considering their attack on the original fans and the original actors of the REAL show.....sigh.

20 years on that forum, and not one single problem...and they decide to do this out of the total blue. usually they give you a warning if they feel you step off too far. smh.

Nah, but it definitely wasn't one of those. It was some generic-sounding DC Super-Heroes/DC Universe kinda thing. Probably came out in the late-90s.

Hah, that's exactly what happened to me here a few months back; at least that was a Temp Ban.

That's sh*tty of them, though. I've said this before, if boards aren't gonna let people voice their opinions, they need to CLEARLY post a rule at the "door": "Only positive feedback or f*ck off." Just be transparent. Don't ambush people simply for speaking their minds.

it seems to be changing in a bad way...so that a narrative of what is and isn't acceptable seems to be forming. they'll let one user post stuff that is supposed to be in an 'adult topic only' forum (i.e. relationship stuff)....and delete about 15 posts after that. leaving the post that started the trouble still up.

sigh. even though I stand by everything I say, i must have caught a mod in a really bad mood :/.....

Or, said show-runner could have reached out to the Mods personally to insist something be done about you being a big meanie about their precious show.

Because apparently that's a thing they do!

I was always told, don't put your creative works out into the world if you can't handle criticism and negativity, but hey, what do I know.

If that where the case, then they'd have to tempa ban more than one person.

it just seems like such a petty reason. 'mean to creators of new show'... ugh.

others have said far worse things than anything i could ever dream of and are still going strong. it'll be interesting to see if they cop to what it was that finally 'did me in'...

I know exactly who to be mad at because they were ratted out to me.

It's still stupid, though. I don't go on any other message boards but I'm definitely hearing a lot of feedback all over the place about how ALL of them - Ghostbusters, He-Man/She-Ra, Star Wars, etc. - are adopting a strict, "Only say Good Things" policy. They can't make it "official" policy, but they ban people for dissent. Not for breaking rules, just for saying they don't like the current product.

That's the opposite of the point of forums. Again, if people can't handle criticism, keep your sh*t in a drawer, don't put it out there for people. If you've made it to the level of "professional" in any artistic endeavor, you should be able to handle people saying mean things about your work. If you can't handle it, and you actively go out of your way to silence people who don't like it, you're not a professional.

The nerds who run all the forums go along with it because they're so scared of "They might stop making new ______ toys!" that they automatically defer to the creators. Also, the creators will occasionally show up on those boards in person for a little bit of rub and tug from the starstruck fanboys, and the forums' staff and members would just HATE it if that stopped. SO, again, "Don't say mean things, you'll scare off (Name of "celebrity" who's actually in no way a celebrity or even anyone special at all)!"

It's stupid. But y'know, priorities and all that. Freedom of expression, that's MY main priority. But that's all going away.

thats what it feels like is slowly happening. there is even a gosh darn 'protected' thread for the new show, for all the special souls that only want to see good and glowing opinions.

free speech is very important, especially on social media, where people will gang up on you if they don't like what you are saying. just the very fact that someone told me i did something 'wrong' in their viewpoint will make me double down on that stance, because it feels like i was on the right track.

Decided i'm going to shoot my first feature film around September. Daunting to say the least but I'm giving myself plenty of time to prepare.

Is there an appropriate spot here to create a thread that I can update with stuff (moreso as my own little interactive jounrnal than anything else)?

Maybe in the art or fanworks sections. We don't really have a non-tmnt creative works section, unfortunately. If we did, I might post a few things from my own creative endeavors.

I don't use paper money all that much anymore, but when I have it I tend to try to get the bills entered on the old Where's George website. Have only gotten a handful of hits in several years, but once in a great while one will be re-entered.

Seems that the most recent one was just a couple weeks ago. Person in a neighboring state had it, mentioned where they'd gotten it in another shared neighbor state.

Looked it up and as I suspected from the name... gentleman's club. Noted in comments that was still crisp so I guess it hadn't gotten anywhere too unsavory. lol Since it was just a $1 and he'd clearly taken it home I'm assuming maybe it was just change from the bar, but it kinda makes you think a bit more about the reality of where the money you handle may have been... Glad I had it before, not after.

Lol I see a lot of it every day, some of them even have the "Where's George" stamp, and I always wonder where tbose have been. But the ones that concern me the most are those really dirty, battered ones, like, it make me wonder how they got that way, and for that matter, who treats money like that anyway?
