The problematic Ranger
+James Smith   talk in this post about whether the Ranger is necessary. The Ranger first appeared in Strategic Review #2 in the summer of 1975 authored by Joe Fischer. The reason for the class was not explicitly stated in the article but anybody could what ...

I my games, rangers are members of a few elite groups of warriors sworn to protect the lands from evils and monsters. A bit like the witchers from the witcher novels. I definitely prefer the old spell-less ranger over the newer woodland guys introduced with 2e, and I quite like the ranger class.

Done with the City-State of the Invincible Overlord Map
After Scourge of the Demon Wolf my product release fell to nil. It isn't that I lost interest but I took on some mapping projects. Since I do this all out of my hobby time something had to give and that was the release of my own stuff. But I think you will ...

I'm a backer, so was glad to see the announcement in my email this morning. 
No time other than a quick look, due to work, but cool!

Saw Batman v Superman. I think its biggest sin is that it is not Avengers Great. It just OK. If you enjoyed Man of Steel then you will probably enjoy this. I personally view it as a grandiose DC Elseworld story.

The movie's biggest flaw that it needed to be longer or split into two films. Especially in the second half there are gaps where something happened but we didn't see it. The second big flaw is Eisenberg portrayal of Lex Luthor. Frankly the only person that got Lex Luthor right was Michael Rosenbaum on Smallville. 

I felt the plot was fine, rather nifty in how it merged two of DCs most well known stories involving Superman and Batman with the events of Man of Steel.

Ben Affleck is one of the best's movie batman. And I like how they showcased Batman's detective skills. Sure he did the beat down on some bad guys but in this film I felt he was worthy of the moniker of the World's Greatest Detective.

Cavall did OK as Superman, any problems were a result of the grimdark protrayal not the actor. Damn it sucks to be him on this Earth-xx 

Gadot as Wonder Woman show a lot of potential although she was only on long enough to get a initial impression. However it was intriguing what was there and definitely gave a sense she is a force to be reckoned with not just as a warrior but a person with an agenda.

Like Synder's Watchmen it will probably be a better film in the extended cut than the theatrical version.

If you want DC Heroes at their finest the Arrowverse Trio of show is still where it is at especially the Flash. Can't wait for next Monday to see the Flash Supergirl crossover.

Finally the way the film was shot is pretty damn good. It was a spectacular film to watch. 

So that my review, you won't waste your money if you see this but if you disliked Man of Steel then this is not going to add anything.

+Wayne Rossi read this KS and I have mixed feelings.  I really would love a copy, but like you mentioned it is not very useful for me, but I really love the idea of it.

Standardize it. Seems silly to recreate the inconsistency.

My new quote for the day.

Who is Tim? And what are his Manors?
