“Nature made me a freak. Man made me a weapon. And God made it last too long.”
“This is what life looks like…”
Professor X, Logan
In this installment of Movie Mining, where we mine movies for RPG ideas, we review the 2017 film Logan and discuss what lessons we learned on how to play older characters in your RPG campaigns. We also talk about the Old Man Logan comic series where the movie drew inspiration. So, if you’re wondering how can you balance the benefit of long experience with the physical ravages of time to create a deep and interesting player character or NPC, find out in our review, bub. Snikt!
“Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war!”
– William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
We don’t let slip dogs, however. We let slip men, manly men, men’s men. Roman men whose virtus strained against the chains of disciplina. Men who could march all day and then spend three hours setting up camp, until their short, sweaty tunics clung to their broad shoulders and powerful backs. Men with thick, stubby fingers and stocky bodies covered in coarse, black hair. (Hmmm, this shouldn’t be turning me on, should it?)
In this installment of Warriors, we answer the age-old question of “Who da man?”
Lyal knew a guy who gave his girlfriend a picture of himself for Christmas. In that spirit, here’s our gift to you: an episode of us talking about what we want for Christmas. We discuss what games we’d like to receive, what games we’d like to see made and what games we’d like to actually play next. So, listen to find out what RPGs and board games you need to get this Christmas.
Merry Christmas! (We had to talk Chris out of dropping the t.)
Correction: The new expansion for the Privateer Press miniatures game Hordes is “Hordes: Domination“, not Dominion as incorrectly stated by Wayne. Let’s hope Santa puts the correct thing under his tree anyway.
