Hey all. I'm not much for this google+ thing, so I've opened up a development forum over at genericrpg.com. I think I got all of you, only one I'm not sure of is +Andrew Chason. I think you username is Incomitatum over there, but I'm not sure.

So +tomi sarkkinen +Alfredo Sendín +Sam Drost and Andrew should have access. If you don't poke me over there or here and I'll get the permission sorted. +Mike McConnell and +Trentin Bergeron should have access because of their overall forum permission.

Thanks guys, I loo forward to you input

The other day I was poking around DriveThruRPG.com and on a whim, I bought Chronicles of Future Earth from Chaosium. I have no intention of playing it. I love the system, but these days I'm in to light, more narrative stuff.

Anyway, it got me thinking about writing again. I current working on what I'm calling Future Past. It will be a system-less, dying earth setting. I'm currently drawing on the d20 OGL and Magic the Gathering artwork for inspiration. My head is swimming with ideas.

Which brings me to this. What do you all think of a system-less setting? My intention is to publish it and provide write-ups for beasties and important stuff as free downloads for as many systems as I can, accepting any and all help from the greater rpg community. Part of the reason for using OGL stuff is ready made stats, but I have no intention of limiting myself to it. I will provide write-ups for Strands and for Mash, which is a game I'm working on.

Another thing I'm wresting with is the background. In all of the dying earth material I've read, magic exists. Why it does billions of years in the future and not now is never really addressed. My question is, is it important to know? I've rationalized why magic works and why the 'gods' have power, but is it important enough to go to all the trouble to develop? Or is it better to leave it simple as 'the wizard did it' and move on? I'm not honestly sure it would ever come up in the setting.

Any and all comments are welcome. I'm especially interested in what +tomi sarkkinen +Mike McConnell +Alfredo Sendín +Andrew Chason and +Sam Drost think.

Dawn of the Jedi

What a cool concept. The variety of the entire Star Wars universe distilled in to a single star system. It's like Edgar Rice Burroughs and George Lucas had a love child.

There are no Sith. The dark side/light side don't automatically equal good/bad. The force is more like magic. Which is way cool as I love wuxia jedi the most.

It's all so very cool. My head is swimming with ideas.

I may have a new favorite Star Wars era for gaming.

ATTENTION GOOGLE, YOUR PRODUCT SUCKS!

I have had it with Google and android. So many fucking devices running different version of the same damn software.

But what has finally tipped it for me is the fact that apps written by Google for their operating system to support their own products (G+, Google docs) don't fucking work!

I see a brand new phone and tablet in my future. i-whatever, maybe. Windows 8, wouldn't a Windows 8 tablet with full OneNote functionality be awesome.

No more androids!

So I'm fiddling with Fort Sill stuff listening to the new Nightwish.

It fucking ROCKS!

I've always been a fan of well crafted music. Queen, Rush, Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Queensryche and more recently Nightwish and Kamelot.

But this is an amazing song.

The Humanoid, god what a movie.

I missed the first half-an-hour, I wish I could say that that half-an-hour could make this a better movie, but I’m not supposed to tell lies. I’ve set the DVR to record it tomorrow morning so I can watch the whole thing. I just might do a WIW, we’ll see how my sanity holds up.

So anyway, about halfway through, my son, who is a huge Star Wars fan comes down and joins me. He says ‘isn’t it funny how all these shows like to make fun of Star Wars’. He’s thinking of Family Guy and Robot Chicken. I spend the next 45 minutes trying to convince him that this was a serious action movie.

He is unconvinced.

And then the funny thing happens. In the movie, our hero chases the villain aboard his spaceship. Through an airlock door that’s been jammed open by an aluminum can. After making his way to the bridge, our hero disables the lone henchman on the bridge with his patented leaping-tackle-of-death! Okay, he leaps through a door, tackles the henchman and snaps his neck. I imagine it was supposed to be very cool. Now comes the climactic battle between good and evil(?). Our villain does something to his chest-control-box-thing and his hands start glowing. Okay maybe we’re going to get a big kung-fu fight. Nope, he shoots lasers from his fingers. Which leads to a round of jokes about ‘LASER FINGERS’.

It is at this point that my son, who is all of nine year old and wise beyond his years looks at me and say, “It could be worse daddy, he could have laser fingers and Fosse hands!”

I about choked on my nachos.

Needless to say, I have never been prouder of him!
