Wow. Tons of folks are being really shitty about the new Ghostbusters cast. Their negativity says more about them than it does about the reboot.

I find it endlessly funny when someone I follow is having this crazy argument with themselves, and it turns out I've blocked the person they're arguing with.

I also think that outside of G+, that's a really creepy thing to admit to.

Yeah, +Cam Banks. It was your post! But this isn't the first time it's happened.

For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try Soylent, a meal-replacement substance. It's the thing to eat if you hate eating.

Truthfully, D&D was first. But, when I heard of this game in 1981 I begged my mom to take me to get it. My enthusiasm must have been perceived as sincere (and probably desperate), because she took to to get it the next day. D&D has always been fun for me, but Champions became an obsession. I exploited every rule until it shattered into highly abused shards.

I'm sure that my circles have seen this, but +Don Mappin has made a free Mass Effect RPG using the Fate system. I hack systems as a hobby, but my adaptations are only usually useful for myself. This... this is glorious and gorgeous and designed with everyone in mind.

I've only read up to skills section, but looking at the table of contents, he's done something I think is vital for a Mass Effect RPG to accomplish: it should honor the setting and the Bioware game. That means certain synergies and effects like biotic combos and tech explosions are integrated into the system. Love it!

I've seen some system hacks that only a parent could love. I've made a few of them myself. This is a labor of love done by someone skilled at writing, layout, and design.

And it's FREE.

Congratulations to all involved. This is wonderful. If I were an asari, I'd have your blue babies.

I should go.

Mostly tweaks based on feedback and what we were seeing at the table. No dramatic shifts of "OMG, my power just completely changed!" The recharge mechanic was perhaps the largest; had to balance biotics and tech powers to not be spammable and provide more tactical options for the players instead of just saying "I drop a singularity at their feet."

A lot of the mechanics were derived from the actual game mechanics. A formula for converting seconds into exchanges, X newtons of force into stress, etc. It's very faithful to the source material.

Now, I'm not saying this is the best idea EVER. But I'm not NOT saying that either:

In Nomine with the plot of Horrible Bosses.

I really must have done something in a past life to deserve the righteous wrath of the car gods in this one. Seriously, I have no luck. Thankfully I live close to one of the best mechanics in the city. They have earned my trust several times over.
