All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: RPGs, comic books, Firefly, RPGs, Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, RPGs, Avengers, Doctor Who, And RPGs. And comic books. And RPGS. Not a "fandom" blog, unless D&D alignments count as a fandom.
So Friday night was the last session for one of the campaigns I play in. Some of us had planned on going to see Guardians of the Galaxy afterwards at the latest showing possible, at 12:45. Of course we ran late. The game (and subsequent celebration) ended at 1:30 am.
I’m trying to figure out which would have made me a bigger nerd:
In any case, I’m trying to avoid spoilers before my next chance to watch it, which won’t be until next weekend. That means I’m avoiding Tumblr like the plague. So I’ve got a queue up that should keep the posts coming through the rest of the week, but I may not be around.
As always, feel free to send me an ask in my askbox if you want to chat, I’ll definitely reply. And if I see anyone being silly in my notes I may come back, but I won’t be watching my dash.
So capitanoscaramuccio asked me my fancasts for my current d&d characters, which I thought was a pretty original idea. So I’m in 3 different roleplaying campaigns right now. Here are my fancasts for each:
1. Winter Remo - Human Scoundrel in Star Wars RCR
Remo was my main bad guy in the first story arc of my campaign. He has 0 combat ability, with all of his points dedicated to Bluff, Diplomacy, and Sense Motive. He was a chief spy in the Rebel Alliance, secretly working for the Empire to subvert it. He was extremely charming, willing to work around the rules to help the players out, and was their primary friend and ally for most of the campaign. Then they found out he was a bad guy. The main reason they took the bait was because they knew my fancast for him was
2. Petros - Obsidiman Warrior & Horror Stalker in Earthdawn
Petros is the stereotypical meat shield, except he isn’t made of meat. Obsidiman are somewhat similar to rock golems, but around 7-8 feet tall and with tough, harded skin similar to stone. He has a bit of a one-track mind, focusing on ridding the land of the Horrors that are infecting it from the astral plane. He has no problem starting a fight, or finishing a fight, or participating in it for just a little while in the middle. He is more or less incapable of double-speak and doesn’t see the point in arguing over a point when you could just punch somebody instead. Fancast for him is Ron Perlman.
3. Victor - Pacifist Minister in Nova Praxis
Victor is an amnesiac with no memory of who he was before he woke up in a hospital bed about 4 months ago. For those of you unfamiliar with Nova Praxis, it is a hard science fiction / transhumanist setting where humanity has abandoned the planet Earth and has settled in various colonies in our solar system and beyond. It’s somewhat dystopic and reminds me somewhat of Shadowrun, only in space and without the magic. After waking up in the hospital with no memory of who he is, he found refuge in a Salvation Army mission and attempts to minister to the poor, weak, or downtrodden. He was kidnapped at the beginning of the campaign and is now trying to figure out why as well as piece together his past. At the same time he is trying to minister to those he meets along the way, looking for ways to try and make their lives better. My fancast for him is
No. Not Jeff Bridges.
