A new Champions Now Beta playtest! With Jason and Rick. I told them, "powers are dark, ancient, and secret," and "crimes are moral, not just legal," and we set it in Los Angeles, where Rick lives. (lots of west coast going on in play ... I'll have to keep an eye on that, and make sure of a wider range. I'd really like to set it in Sweden some time!)

I love that cover. It was the first issue of The Uncanny X-Men I bought with my own money off the stands, and even Cyclops’ entirely unnecessary gesticulating is perfect. But ... uh ... why is Storm saying that? It is a very silly thing to say, and fortunately our heroes in the Defiants say precisely the opposite as you shall see here.

I ran into a post at G+ which turned out to have been partly prompted by the Barbaric Psychedelic game, and then my comment got replies … well, social media was actually social for once, and the outcome was this conversation with the very kind Gregor Vuga about this-or-that about Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition.

My latest consult with Tor brings us his working title, "Belitsunnu's Manticore," and extensive discussion of winning/losing, procedures for player input into preparation, and improvised tactical play.

Please add the collective intelligence to this one. We raised tons of questions and I tried not to drive toward answers - help me round out and deepen the questions so Tor's muse and/or subconscious can surprise him with the right answers for his game.

What's funny about "prep sunk cost anxiety" as a phrase is that I'm not sure it's well constructed in
