Looks great. Can’t wait.
Ha! Did you know you’re a poet?
Yah. Couldn’t think of a better phrasing.
Even as I wrote it
Myself done did knowed it:
I then be’d a poedit.
Anything we should know about Star Frontiers before the con-mencement? I know how role-playing can get when everything has to be clarified 100 times.
The only thing I know about the game I gathered from looking at the front the box. So to answer your question – no not really. However, if you want to look into a bit – you can download all the games and rules in PDF format here. After Wizard’s of the Coast took over TSR, Star Frontiers was one of the games they made available for free download and distribution on the internet. It was defiantly one of the more commendable things that Wizard’s of the Coast did.
All I know is my player’s name will be Cswell.
My player’s name will probably be “Peter”. Haven’t decided about the character’s yet though. (skark)
Nice one Pete.
Also Tom, wasn’t it spelled Cwell?
It was Cwell back in the 80’s, but its now Cswell for the year 2005. Just trying to make it a bit more hip for the younger generation.
Now that is some mother fucking science.
Like the kind some woman blinded Thomas Dolby with? Or some other kind?
I’ve blinded a few men with science in my day.
