Character Creation: Changeling: The Dreaming (2nd Ed)
So, I made a Changeling  character a while back, but that was 1st edition. Seeing as how I've spent the better part of this week outlining the 20th Anniversary Edition of our beloved goofy/tragic game of bunny-people and fucking cannibals, I thought it fit ...

Movie #309: Edge of Tomorrow
Edge of Tomorrow is a sci-fi action movie starring Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise, Brendan Gleeson, and Bill Paxton. It really should have been titled Live Die Repeat , since that's what all the posters and the DVD box and the label at Target seem to think it's ca...

Having read the novel, the movie kind of annoyed me, but taken on its own, yes, it was a fun movie.

Character Creation: The Silver Kiss of the Magical Twilight of the Full Moon

Awesome review of #Chill  on +Geek Native today! 
Chill's flexible and progressive design carries through to its mechanics, as well. The core of the gameplay revolves around Light and Dark tokens that represent the ever-lasting tug of war between good and evil.
