I agree. They look very nice.

I dunno...I just made it up on a whim. What exactly do you want? Society? Anatomy? D20 game statistics? More pictures? A name?

No, that's not complicated. You haven't seen complicated. I once created an entire planet (still working on it, actually....5 years and counting) where the natives are descendants of echinoderm-like creatures. I have their internal biochemistry, molecular diagrams of new enzymes, gravity measurement...

Okay, I got it. Here's an idea.....it looks kinda like the zoverii, but appearances are deceiving. Let me give you an idea of what you're looking at. The head really isn't a head at all. Only the eyes and mouth function, but the mouth isn't attached to the digestive system at all. Instead, it's only...

That'd look too much like a mind flayer for my tastes. What if they were vaguely humanoid, not possessing arms or legs, but with two pair of tentacles further up along their "torso?" They could have a myoskeletal structure to most of their bodies, with cartilage in the face and surrounding the vital...

Another thing I wanna see is more stuff on the desert. Some real dirt about the Leptoceratops would be cool. Oh, yeah, and I hadta design the interior of that ship (and the exterior) there on my own...I think I got down to around 40 decks, but my players ended up skipping most of it. Of course, they...

Crossgen comics=art nouveau

Yeah, Crossgen even states as much in their ads. I picked up some of the Crossgen stuff and didn't really find it all that gripping to me (still can't figure out the right words....augh, can't articulate! Torture!). Too much color. I'm used to the black and white toned medium and the unobstructed mu...

Map of the Late Cretaceous

Alright, does anyone have any idea where I might find a map of Earth during the late Cretaceous period? I've ben searching for a full day on the net and haven't found anything. If it's an off-web map, I'd like to be able to scan it with a 300cm by 110cm (12' by 9') scanner. If it's a map on the web,...

I've got a section of my campaign populated by organisms that evolved from bats. Two of the most common large animals are the wapaninga (a giant sloth-like bat) and the agima (a two legged, blind predator that runs on what were once its wings and has a killing claw). The wapaninga, being the slow mo...

You know, I would like to see something about oozes. Not about playing them, mind you, they're mindless (though an ooze-like creature who wasn't might be interesting), but about how they just exist. Oozemad spellcasters, warriors, and other folks could get in on the action...people driven mad by the...

You know, personally, I would like to see someone snag the Planescape license. I think It's still floating around out there. It was, in my opinion, the most imaginative D&D setting I'd ever seen, and it broke my heart when "Faction War" ended the whole thing. For those who don't know, imagine Slider...

Hey, now that would be useful. I've had to come up with a lot of water-combat and adventuring rules for Aesca, but I'd like to see something come out of a published company about that kind of stuff.

Lesse, 2ed D&D had an underwater octopi race...called Zoveri, I think. They were celestial.

Yeah, the guy in the Gollum suit was great (I call it a suit because that's what it is, a CG-rendered modern day rubber suit). And the wargs were really cool. They reminded me of that sheep.....what's it called...it's extinct now....it had really big teeth.....

According to most legends, a lot of magic didn't have a big "boom" effect. A lot of it was very subtle, almost unnoticable to those who weren't trained to see it....mind tricks, illusions, and bodily transformations were the rule. Transformation was obviously quite blatant, but the others could be v...

Well, first off, if you like Ghost in the Shell, you'll have to clean your jaw off the floor after seeing Serial Experiments Lain.

As for Two Towers......really cool. Gave my friend head explodey. Not me, though. It was good, but I haven't been wowed by a movie in a long time.

I go see it today.

I don't know abou tthe Matrix. It was really cool, and it had some great cinematography, but it was very action-oriented. I like stuff to have a plot-driven storyline.

I guess that makes Solaris my kind of movie, and Serial Experiments Lain (the series) my Matrix.

Ah, what if you used psionics on a very limited basis? Of course, you don't really have to tell the players what they're actually playing. I once ran a game in India where the characters were members of a militray response team with lasers, jet fighters, and all sorts of ultramodern/futuristic gear....
