Re: The return of the D&D campaign: This time it's potatoes

:)

I spent lunch prepping something which may never come up, but if it does... god have mercy on us all. :lol:

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

If the books go the same way and have the walkers defeated at Winterfell before half of the southern kingdoms have even heard of them then I will be disappointed beyond belief. The last Long Night caused the seas to freeze and even Essos was invaded by the dead. Anything the characters tell us abou...

No, 8 years ago in July. Still about 5 years too many.

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

From what I recall (it's been a while), the Night King is referenced but isn't really a thing yet, and to confuse matters there's also the Night's King who may or may not be a different character altogether and was once a Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Basically the show's version of the Night...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

He probably gave them character arcs, like:

1. Dany frees all the slaves.
2. Dany invades Westeros.
3. ?
4. Dany burns children.

or

1. Bran goes north of the Wall.
2. Bran gets possessed by a tree wizard.
3. Something something time travel.
4. Bran becomes king.

Get writing!

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Felt ok as I watched it, aside from the obvious dumb stuff ("hang on, weren't Jaime and Cersei buried under a metric shit-ton of rock rather than a few half-bricks?" "why didn't Drogon flame Jon?" "why didn't the unsullied or dothraki kill Jon?" "why doesn't everyone else declare they're an indepen...

Re: End of thrones prediction sweepstakes!

I'm claiming 1.5 points rather than 0. Also I'm a secret Targaryen, the Prince that was Promised, the Night King and a four - no, five - eyed raven. [-(

I hereby declare myself the Tinfoil King.

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

But if he can't see the future then how could he know she'd flip and go genocidal? Of all the problems this season, I don't see that as being one. EDIT - Actually there are things to suggest he can see SOME of the future, or at least possible futures. My take on it is that he can see many possible ...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

It's a fair point, but why would the Three-Eyed Raven give a shit about ruling Westeros? I assume this is where the books will have a much more engaging explanation, most likely bringing in the Blackfyre Rebellions and the fact that Brynden Rivers was the Raven before Bran. Another thing that the s...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

I don't think Bran can see the future, just the past, which would explain why he didn't warn everyone about Dany. Bran being made king is for me one of the least stupid things they've done this season.

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

The finale: Ignoring all the things that were left unresolved or casually brushed aside, and without probing too far at the problems beneath the glossy sheen... it was reasonable. It was played very safe. Again, ignoring everything else, it does make a strange sense for Bran to be king given that he...

Re: Druidstone - new tactical RPG from makers of Legend of Grimrock - out May 15

I’m a fair few hours in and also thoroughly enjoying it. Easy seems about right for a first playthrough, but normal difficulty seems attainable as I frequently find myself realising how I could have done things better a few turns ago.

Cheers, was holding onto that twist for a few weeks! ;)

This week it's going to be Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday for me. Any takers?

Re: The return of the D&D campaign: This time it's potatoes

Apologies for the audio issues last night - not sure what was going on, but I'll try to ensure it's sorted for next time. Anyway, the recap: The Unmentionables continued their mingling amongst the Neverwinter nobility by talking to Lady Tanye, the Master of the People - the representative of the cit...
