This week we all sat down with some pre-gen characters to run thru a short module as practice.  And first off we fleshed out additional Aspects for the pre-gens and how they related to each other with various questions.  So my heavy metal musician werewolf ended up being in his late 40s.  And used to date Bryon's East African war refugee sorceress and was asked by the mentor of the apprentice wizard run by Frazerto keep an eye on him while he's off on Council business and I once ran off a ghoul chasing Alyce's changeling.  That, plus printer issues giving us a bit of a late start, meant we didn't get to the actual gaming part until later.  So we really only had time for one scene.  Arriving at the local coffee house/supernatural neutral grounds and finding two of the staff murdered and the owner missing.  This still gave us the opportunity to briefly run several challenges, including a combat one.  We ended the night with the other's regrouping at Zack the Wizard's dorm while Sean my werewolf waited around for the cops after he ripped the throat out of the goon who was the likely killer.

After reuniting the party with the resurected Bill's Bard's Wife (now a halfling) the group noticed that the fog cover of the guards & wards spells on the hideout had to be renewed daily.  Giving us the idea that there could be a window the next morning to try and reassualt without all the annoying fog cover and magically locked doors and what not.  Unfortunately while were preparing to wait for this window, our opponent, Fruit Pie the Wizard located the group.

After opening up with a fireball, we then had a lengthy battle against a well-prepped wizard.  Which meant he was flying, invisible and had who knows what other defensive buffs up.  But eventually enough of us could spot him to whittle him down.  And then drop him with a lightning bolt from my witch and a scorching ray from the roommate's wizard.  Sadly Bill's bard was the one not to survive the battle this time.  Too much direct damage combined with getting mobbed by a pack of summoned earth elementals.

Invincible #129: Writer Robert Kirkman, Penciler & Inker Cory Walker, Colorist Nathan Fairbairn & Letterer Rus Wooton.  A trip back to Earth, after a brief visit from Eve's alien ex.  Who is a big ol' dumb butt.  And on Earth Eve has a run-in with Anissa.  Much angry Eve is what we're saying.

Astro City #36: Writer Kurt Busiek, Art Ron Randall, Lettering & Design John Roshell & Jimmy Betancourt of Comicraft & Color art Peter Pantazis. A nice enough end to a Jack-in-the-box story arc.  Really it probably suffers from the incredibley high bar of the previous Jack arc.  Though Mr. Drama was pretty A+ golden-age style villain.

Lumberjanes #27: Written by Shannon Watters & Kat Leyh, Illustrated by Ayme Sotuyo, Colors by Maarta Laiho & Letters by Aubrey Aiese.  Adventures with giant birb and magical kittehs.

Dark Horse Presents #23: By various, Chief Editor Mike Richardson.  Some Tarzan and Mr. Monster and Finder and Space Jungle Girl.

The bits where they went around doing magic tricks and kung-fu magic were pretty fun.  And I liked Harrelson playing his actual evil twin as one of the bad guys.  And Harry Potter was generally pretty gleefully over-the-top wicked.  But the actual story bits felt like total nonesense (especially whenever they tried to make a big deal of THE EYE).  And Caine was kind of just phoning in previous roles.  And while I liked the kung-fu magic sequences, I felt the ones in the original were lit and filmed in a way I could actually WATCH them.  Still an enjoyable bit of escapism...

Got together for another rpg group during the weeks we aren't doing Pathfinder.  With the roommate, Frazer & Bryon from the regular group.  Plus Bryon's SO.  After handing out a pile of potential rpgs, the consensus was for the Dresden Files RPG which use the FATE system, with Brendan as GM.  The core of the character creation system is basically answer questions about your back-story and use that to create Aspects.  I'm going with a In the Know reporter with second sight.  So my High Concept Aspect is Kolchak, With Visions.  Then I gave him the Troubled Aspects of Marked By the Mob and Ghost-eye, Can't Turn it Off.  The first notes how he used to be a crime reporter until a mob hit killed his wife and nearly killed him.  The latter is how the near-death experiance gave him a scar, a shock of white hair and the ability to see glamour, ghosts, astral entities and etc.  Then for his other Aspects I've got Friends On the Force (old police contacts from when he worked the crime beat), Local Crank (showing that he's known for doing woo-woo stories and isn't taken seriously by "real" press anymore) and White Board of Doom (for his files and research on both the local criminals and supernaturals).

The others basic concepts so far are a Rogue Innsmouth-ian type, an Emmisary of Power (or maybe Alyce decided on Semi-Senile/Mostly Retired Ancient Wizard) and an Old Lady Conjurer and Interior Designer/Architect.  And we brain stormed as a group various background details for our setting of St. Louis.  With everything being set in the starting period of the war between the White Council (Wizards) and the Red Court (Vampires)...

Last week's game continued the fog-shrouded combat against the shadow demon and it's master, Fruit-Pie the Wizard.  Despite the pastry prestidigitator's hit-and-run tactics we managed to take out the demon and force the wizard to retreat.  Which let the rest of us retreat from the hall, but not before a cloudkill took out a mess of Brendan's minions as they tried to escape.  And the repeated lightning bolts also ended Bill's cohort/wife's life.  So we ended the session with most of the party camping nearby, while my witch teleported to the nearest city to get the supplies for a reincarnation spell.

Light week this time.

Paper Girls #6Writer Brian K. Vaughan, Artist Cliff Chiang, Colors Matt Wilson, Color flats Dee Cunniffe & Letters & Design Jared K. Fletcher.  That wonderful time travel situation when your younger self looks at "modern" self and wonders "what the fuck happened to me"?
Savage Dragon #214Creator Erik Larsen, Letters Chris Eliopoulos, Colors Nikos Kovtsis & Flats Mike Toris.  Crazy ol' Dart II is trying to steal all the 3rd generation Dragon babies.  And she's got Malcolms sort-of alt-world 1/2 brother Barry Dragon to help her.

Survivors' Club #9: Writer Dale Halvorsen & Lauren Beakes, Layouts Ryan Kelly, Finishes Ryan Kelly, Mark Farmer & Peter Gross, Colorist Eva De La Cruz & Letterer Clem Robins.  Ending feels a bit rushed in spots, like this was originally going to be a 12-issue story.  They do wrap up the major arcs and even place some hooks for potential later stories.

That was certainly a very explodey movie.  And I applaud the amount of forethought the ancient anti-Apocalypse rebels had to put into their pyramid building to pull off their ambush/trap.  Like Days of Future Past the action highlight is Quicksilver again.  With him rescuing a building full of people from an ongoing explosion.  All while being smugger about it, then say tv's the Flash.  And I liked the Danger Room bit at the end.  Didn't stay through the credits to see if their was a teaser though...

Ok, lets try to back on track with these.

Jem & the Holograms #15: Written by Kelly Thompson, Art by Sophie Campbell, Story by Thompson & Campbell, Colors by M. Victoria Robado & Letters by Shawn Lee.  Boo, Silica's evil-meme world domination goal.  Yay, Hologram/Misfit team-ups!

Matt managed to wrangle all the players onto one goal.  Tracking down the planar-travelling dire boar Piggy Smalls.  And the first step was journeying to the stolen headquarters of Brendan's dwarven crime-boss wizard.  Eventually leading to actual combat.  Made more difficult by the guards & wards spells set up.  Fighting a shadow demon is difficult in concealing fog, even after the confusion effect is dispelled.  Also Bredan complained a lot about the looting and desctruction of an evil wizard's lair just 'cause it was his...
