OOO! What did you think about Frankenstein?

It's so different to any movie adaptation I've ever seen.  It was kind of slow in parts, but I think it fit the theme of Victor being the wiener he was.  He was a pretty despicable character.  Felt bad for the monster for a while and then he too turned despicable.  Only people I felt for was the family in the end.

I started Honourkeeper the other day. I'm amused by the dwarf wedding ceremonies

I've got that on my bookshelf.  I need to get the rest of the series. 

I just started reading Reiksguard.  Finished Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.  Wanted to start Dracula but wanted something a bit lighter first.

I think most of the Lucas-hate comes generally from 'Hey, your SW is not what I imagined MY SW was", and I'm VERY important in my little part of the web blah blah blah.

I completely agree.  I think there is some major elements that lack, but there definitely seems to be a lot of self loathing that happens.  If it turns out you start to dislike something you should just leave it alone in my opinion.  Like I did with the Simpsons.

Disney said that after this one they will stop making Star Wars films for a bit. May be a good idea rather than have 1-2 every year. Star Wars Fatigue is a real thing.

I think it's a shame they stopped the Obi Won movie, tbh.

There will be some Star Wars television which looks like it's going to Disney+, and I'm fine with that (outside of the exclusivity).  I still love Star Wars and am fine with well made stuff.

That's awesome, I hope you guys are having a blast! It's really cool that nowadays, not having people near you to RP with doesn't stop you from doing it anyway over the internet.

It's been great so far.  It's been good for me because I don't have a lot of time and being able to jump online gives me a lot more of an opportunity than trying to meet up locally.

Elaborate please..


I will be seeing Detective Pickachu when that comes out next month.

Recently started an online D&D with Siberius and his brother WoflyGreiss.

Also, my sons have gotten me seemingly addicted to Pokemon.  Been around since it's inception, but not until recently have I taken the plunge. 

Ok so look at the FB page  " World of Steveb" and tell me what I can do to improve? I have hundreds of pics up now ..I want to eventually create a virtual museum of sorts

I posted on the Warhammer-Empire facebook page a week or so ago.  I think the only other forum page I'm in on facebook is Da Warpath.  I should post in there, too, but it's barely ever active.

Arenít you just describing the experience most FIFA or EUFA watchers have?

In today's NFL, not really.  It would be equivalent of a boring 0-0 draw to most people.  Today's NFL scoring standards would be the equivalent to 4+ goals a game (usually by both sides).

I enjoyed the game for what it was, I find defensive matchups interesting.  It was made more interesting because of the stakes.

Those are great! I love making stuff like that, but sadly we've had barely any snow all year. I've been outside without a coat for most of the week.

So, like -10 or there abouts?

Yeah, 50s at least.  I'm picturing him in his 60s, but I could be wrong.  That's a hard life to live.

Edit:  I just found out through some maths that Uhtred was probably born around 857 or so in story.  Aethelflaed's real life death was in 918.  War of the Wolf is after that point, I'm not sure by how much, but that would put Uhtred in his early 60s assuming it was only a couple of years or less.

I really think the Clone Wars cartoon is great.

I finished the most recent Cornwell book in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles called War of the Wolf.  Still good.  Though there are times I wonder if Cornwell accounts as much for Uhtred's age in all of the shenanigans that occur. 

I just picked up a super cheap Kindle version of Anglo Saxons at War (800-1066) by Paul Hill.  Been wanting to read this one for a while.

That's what I figured.  Don't know why they would consider that spam.

NSP and TWRP's version of "Africa" is way better than Weezer's cover of it...and dare I say I like it better than the original by Toto.

I can see why you'd say that.  It's a really good cover, definitely do like it more than Weezer's.

Blacksmiths craft Sigmar's hammer.  I would definitely adorn my mantel with this if possible...probably couldn't lift it to put it there.

Lovely.  I have this game because i acquired it from a friend who was going to sell it at a yard sale for like $3.  It was open and used but in great shape.  I'm playing the starter campaign with a co-worker now. 

I have some random parts laid around from my original copy.  I wish I had taken better care of it, especially since I got the expansion Return of the Witch King as well. 

The nice thing about this game too is there're a lot of resources online still available.

Hope you get better SteveB.  You've always been one of those pillars of the W-E.com community. 

Thanks for that band of huntsmen you painted all those years ago.  They proudly adorn my study.

You can get the omnibus for fairly cheap I think.  It's not really typical hack and slash Warhammer.

Feels like the Captain Hammer part of "A Man's Gotta Do" would work fairly well, too, Rowsdower.

Enemy Within by Richard Lee Byers is a really good book.  Outside of the Genevieve series this is probably my favorite Warhammer story.  Byers is a good author, I've read some of his D&D stuff and they were good, but I'm not as enthralled by that lore as I am with Warhammer.  I think this is the only book he's written for Warhammer, it's been on my wish list for a couple of years and it's been a fun read.

I guess it's literature...

Picked up some WFRPG supplements (Ashes of Middenheim and Spires of Altdorf).  I really enjoy reading through to get a deeper look into the Warhammer fluff.  I found where Xathrodox got his name from, too.  Paging the Inquisition... :unsure: ::heretic::
