| I have the Necromonging skill at rank 2

I believe Riddick also turns out to be the last member of a race called the Furyons? And Dame Judi Dench is involved somehow (could that be the Pump connection? he's been professing to be interested in tentacles/bondage elves, but all along he's been hiding a thing for old English broads?). Yeah, I'm gonna watch this shit.

Steam sale almost over! They've got Dishonored on sale today for $10. If your rig can run it, I highly recommend this one. It is an homage to Thief in many ways, and you can play stealthily if you want and it's great, but you can also choose to go turbo-badass and just kill everyone if that floats your boat. Your dude has a variety of Kewl Powers available and there's a decent bit of customizationas you proceed. I really enjoyed the possession power, which at the basic level lets you possess rats and fish and scurry around on the downlow, and at higher levels let you possess guards, so you can possess one, walk him over to a distant room somewhere, exit his body and then knock him out. Creepy! And fun.

Has anybody played either Walking Dead or BioShock Infinite? I've heard good things about the game. Is it good for somebody who isn't familiar with the show/comic?

In other game news: Shadowrun Returns is in the can and releases a week from today! Yeee-haw. Looks like a fun time, and that'll be one less outstanding Kickstarter reward! On the downside, Wasteland 2 has been delayed until 2014. Oh well. Not like I'd have time to play both this year, anyway.

Here's how I see this Star Wars thing going down: I can run the beginner session which is probably two sessions. After that, if people want, there's a free continuation of that adventure I can run too -- that'd be another 3-4 sessions.

At that point, if we want to keep going, we can actually make characters and perhaps somebody else could pick up the reins -- since that will be around the time I'm getting 2 hours of sleep at a time thanks to the new kid. There's an adventure in the core book, another with the GM screen, one in the upcoming Explorer supplement, the "Free RPG Day" adventure which should release in PDF sometime, plus a full-on hardcover campaign coming soonish. Basically what I'm saying is if we use the Force to pass shit around a little, we can keep this thing going for a while without anybody having to write any adventures.
