    Mr. DM, are we applying flanking rules? Also, is One Eyed Willy wearing armor? Thanks.

    yeah, it's fun and straight forward. Although as we were playing chapter 2 in the mining town of Phandolin, it occurred to me that the story sounded somewhat familiar....

    the party comes to a frontier mining town
    they meet the local bullies, called the Redbrands who wear red cloaks
    they have a fight with them at the tavern or in the street

    the authors just copied the plot of Tombstone lol!

    Earp family arrives in Tombstone
    the Cowboys wore red bandanas
    they just had the fight at the OK corral

    I like Rob's ruling that Flanking gives +2 to attack, not ADV

    Rogan charges up the steps at O-7.  He is obviously pissed off (Rage) and still naked.  Rogan is a 1/2 orc, but one wonders if the other half was Clydesdale.  One-Eyed Rogan may have earned his nickname from whores not fellow pirates.

    cheers love the nerdism in week 1 NFL power rankings


    15

    BEARS

    +9

    Previous rank: No. 24

    This is not a simple reaction to the Khalil Mack blockbuster -- it's merely a simple reaction to the Khalil Mack blockbuster. What a move by general manager Ryan Pace, who swashbuckled his way across the front-office universe like Captain James T. Kirk and dealt a blow to the Klingons, Romulans and Gorn ... er, the Vikings, Lions and Packers with the addition of a top-five defensive player. Couple Mack with an already stable defense (much better than the one in Oakland), then further take into account a solid offensive line, a steady RB1 and an ascending franchise quarterback, and it's clear Chicagoans have themselves a squad.

    yeah, I'll believe it when they actually compete this year and have a winning record.

    Vikings will win the division, that's still my forecast.

    Bears receiver corps is still very suspect IMHO.

    the pass-catching talent is all there on paper. we'll see if they can play together on the field

    WR 1 Allen Robinson (JAX)
    WR 2 (slot) Taylor Gabriel (SF\ATL)
    WR 3 Kevin White (if healthy)
    TE Trey Burton (PHI)

    RB duo: Howard and Cohen

    it's almost a mirror of KC's offense with the exception of Robinson as KC had no true dominant WR1.
    Burton plays the Kelce role, Taylor = Tyrek Hill, RBs are better\= Hunt\West combo

    see, that's what bothers me.

    KC - never won a damned thing. Zero conference championships, zero SB titles.

    Not the best pattern to follow IMHO.

    I'll still give the coach the benefit of the doubt since it really seems like the GM is trying to make an actual football team (not the garbage we've had to suffer through for most of the last 30 friggin years)

    This is about my last straw with the Bears to be honest. I'm just sick of how pathetic they are on a regular basis. I'm encouraged, but I remember being encouraged before and having it all fall apart in a couple weeks.

    Hey guys, looks like you've got some fun naval adventure going! Not sure what the future brings for me with online gaming. I was feeling some DM burnout-drain before suffering tech issues. Enjoying the new Dell at any rate!

    I played several sessions of the starter box module at Top Cut. It was cool. Nice sandboxy flavor.

    Nagy was the OC. He is building the type of offense that works with his system. Andy Reid can be a boneheaded coach, no doubt. But he has one of the most influential coaching trees in the current NFL. The guy knows how to coach coaches.

    Pederson, Harbaugh, McDermott, Rivera, Spagnola, Bowles, Nagy, Reid himself (8\32) that's 25% of the NFL head coaches right there.


    Harbaugh and Pederson have won SBs, Rivera lost a SB, Reid lost SB in PHI

    Chicago's defense is Fangio's show. It is better than KC's was last year. KC was horrible on D last year.

    Hi Rob!

    you are welcome to join the Pirate fun if you want, just say "argh, matey" and you're in. I know we were all enjoying Harkenwold, so when you recover your DM mojo, I would love to play again.

    Great minds think alike Mike. lol

    And since he brought it up... can everyone please stop using that nick-name for me? I'm certainly not mad about it but I'm about as much of a Celt as I am a Roman. My whole ancestry is Germanic (including the English, who are just Danes and Saxons); there's only a small bit of Scotch-Irish (and the Campbells sided with England against the Pretender - Bonny Prince Charley). It's a pretty silly nick-name these days.

    But I know how well my efforts to convince you all have gone in the past. Just wanted to say it once.

    well, if we're going to get all Piratee here... "Captains" are elected by the crew and only have absolute authority during battle, otherwise it's a democracy... historically speaking of course

    Sam went along with what he said, he just didn't know that Hawkes was elected captain yet. Wink

    Sjon is all for Hawkes being captain. Is there anyone else who would like to throw their hat in the ring?
    Certainly he is the one taking the reins to get us underway. It's probably worth having a democratic crew discussion, but Sjon wants to get out of that bay with a ship.

    regardless of titles, the boat isn't going to move on its own, so people need to start making their rolls to sail the ship. they can either follow Hawkes guidance or do something else, but the beastie under them is hungry Twisted Evil

    Hey don't look at me, it was my job to attack the dog, and I attacked the dog. I'm not sure what kind of voodoo makes the ship move by attacking a dog, but that's probably why I'm not the captain.
