Golden Evolve is always a delight. If I remember correctly, he gave up soon afterwards because the constant freezes. The four minions I received were all useful.

For those who pre-ordered Battlefield 1, do you receive beta access? Is Beta access available to everyone or just those insiders and those who pre-ordered? Thanks!

Hey, all. I upgraded my Nexus 9 to Android Nougat. Everything went swimmingly, but upon the restart, I am receiving a Google Play Services keeps stopping. Is this normal for everyone else? Suggestions on a fix? I tried clearing the cache but that only afforded me a few seconds of peace before the same message popped up.

I ended up doing a factory reset and starting fresh +praveen kumar​. I wanted to restore my old info but I felt that if I did, I would have the same problem.

Everything is good now! Nice and smooth.

Hello, all. I had a question regarding equipment needed for playing any or most TTRPGs.

I went to my local hobby shop and the clerk was none too helpful.

Do I need any sort of timer? 3-minute hour glass? How many dice? How many sets of dice? I read that Cheesex make great dice and found that Amazon has many styles. Chessex Dice Polyhedral 7-Die Opaque Dice Set being the title, in many colors. How many sets would I need?

I know that not every RPG is the same, but surely they all must have some standard instrument, right? Thanks for any help!!

+Jan Franco​ most people use 16mm dice. The smaller ones are useful in games that have a dice pooling mechanic that leads to the 'bucket of dice' problem. For example tunnels and trolls. Although, rather than rolling 20 dice I think most sane people would roll five and simply multiply the result by four.

As far as the corners of the dice being rounded. As long as they appeal to you, feel good in your hand, and are accepted by the other players at the table, go for it. In the end, whatever you choose simply needs to work for you and your group.

Hello, all.

I have backed four TTRPGs on the Kickstarter.

Coriolis
Herald: Lovecraft and Tesla my personal favorite
Prince Valiant
The Magical Land of Yeld

My question, aside from the rule books which will come with the games, is there anything my friends and I need to play?

I heard dice are a big part, but not just regular dice. Anything else? Thanks!

Not normally. Just normal paper, typically.

Is it common to have more than one rpg of the same genre? I am pledging to the Dead Lands Kickstarter and I forgot about the American Sunset pledge I had as well.

If nobody had more than one RPG per genre, then how would there be so many bookcases filled with shelf after shelf of RPGs?

For the month of August, I went 22-6 in Hero League. 18 matches as Rehgar, going 12-6. Getting better and better!

A couple losses were good losses, the others were because of idiot players, disconnects, and feeders.

I had a great DREAM last night about a break-in, self-defense, and great use of restraint.

I was fresh out of the shower with only a towel on when I noticed a half dozen men enter my home. I knew they were after my firearms. I saw them laughing as they threw my safe down the stairs. My thought was "Do you have any idea of what is inside??" I scrambled to pick up the safe, ran down the hallway, and locked the door. I put in the combination and pulled out a two-tone 45, red and black. (I do not own such a handgun but that is what I grabbed) I came out of the room, they saw my handgun and ran out the door. I chased after them outside. One of them tried to assault me so I shot him in the head. The others reached their getaway car, a Cadillac with no top. I held them all there until I woke up. Best part, I did not fire on them because I could see they were unarmed. Even in a DREAM, I was practicing good control.

Makes you wonder why these anti-gunners want us disarmed. Even in dreams, we are behaving responsibly.

Hey, all. Thanks to everyone who gave me the great info regarding needed material for RPGs for new players like myself.

Which size is the preferred or "better" size for dice? Playing regular board games, I am used to the latter, but are the smaller-sized dice more common for RPGs? Obviously, with the smaller dice, you can roll many more in your hand, but the only game I know that commonly used a dozen or more dice, almost every roll, is Warhammer 40K.

I want to make sure I get all the info straight before the first RPG arrives from Kickstarter! Thanks, again!

I use to play d&d with a friend with horrible eyesight, he had huge die to compensate. Other than that case I like using a bunch of different sizes.

I called this store looking for this incredibly popular rifle. They had one left and were kind enough to place it on hold for me until the next day. When I came in, there were plenty of customers about and I was immediately greeted and helped. They have a whole other room next door with more goodies. The prices were great and the customer service was friendly and very helpful. I even got a discount for being a first time shopper there. I will be returning here for more purchases.
