I saw X-Men Apocalypse yesterday. Overall, it was a mixed bag. Some high points and some definite low points. It had tons of plot holes and things that didn't make sense. I did enjoy seeing the characters again on screen like Professor X and Magneto. And I really enjoyed Night Crawler. Apocalypse as a villain just fell flat for me. He is just too over the top powerful while at the same time his villainous plot made no sense. Well, like I said, plot holes. I think the HISHE guys will have a fun time with this one. So, it was worth seeing for the entertainment value (kind on the level of Batman Vs. Superman). But, it was no Captain America Civil War.

Did anyone else watch the first episode of Supergirl? I thought it was quite good, very charming and fun. I've really missed the fun factor in superhero shows which have leaned more towards dark and brooding. Nothing wrong with dark and brooding, it's just that there is so much of it! Supergirl is a welcome departure. I thought Michelle Benoist did a great job as Supergirl. I look forward to seeing more of her in this role and see how her character develops. Also, if you watched the episode, did you catch some of the fun Easter eggs (like Dean Cain's cameo)??

What if Wes Anderson did an X-Men movie?:  
Wes Anderson and superheroes are two things that seem to fit so perfectly, it’s amazing no one has ever thought of it before.

This is a picture I did of one of my latest Supers hero:  Requiem.  He has darkness control powers and is a martial artist (kind of Batman and Moon Knight'ish).  I finally got to take the role of Requiem again when my friend Gary visited and my wife Amy (who did a fantastic job playing Tempest!) got to get in some Supers RED time!  A write up from my friend Gary can be found just a little bit below.

Walt, Requiem is aka, Dr. Nathaniel Marsten.  Marsten, an  archaeologist, was exploring a tomb that was just excavated beneath a Scottish castle.  Several new and important finds were discovered.  Marsten's colleague, Dr. Jaques Levine, was overcome by greed, and wanted to claim the find for himself.  So, Levine pushed Marsten into a deep pit.  Thinking Marsten dead, Levine fled the the scene.  And indeed, Marsten was close to death.  As his life was slipping away, a strange messenger appeared to him in a vision saying that the Twilight had chosen him as it's sentinel.  The messenger then touched Marsten, and his broken body was completely healed.  What's more he now had the ability to control darkness.  The Twilight, it turns out, is an other worldly being that seeks to bring balance to the world and defeat evil.  As such, Marsten is now the living embodiment of the night striking terror in the hearts of evil doers!

Every day seems to bring new OSR themed game systems. Which has led me to ask a question of you all: Do you think there are too many OSR games? Or is it more the merrier?

Another way to view it: There are no OSR games. The things you are referring to are presentations of different ways of making rulings within the same game. Each "game" is merely the rules version of a new Monster Manual or Spell Book. You use what you want, or you can choose to use it as "the book" at your table. Your choice.

I had no idea! I fondly remember reading White Dwarf magazine back in the day. They had so many cool products. I still love all their wonderful miniatures. It would be like coming across a TSR store in the Metroplex. Well, maybe not quite that awesome....but pretty close.
