Yep. They're here -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lBVVAo8Y38&list=PLZsrxxME7K30aQywpsS0rdSORFDn4qmYm It's not a TPK type of campaign (as of the end of chapter four, anyway) and the DM drops a lot of background information in so it should make sense to anyone who isn't familiar with Ravenloft.

Re: Hey you old farts, I'm bored.

Was it tracksuits or shellsuits? Sort of remember that, was there a huge public scandal? lately I keep heavily hinting that I want this , because I love the youtube series but Hound is absolutely fricking terrible with hints, even when the hint is "Hey, you can buy me this as a gift". :laugh: If his...

Re: Hey you old farts, I'm bored.

Working with some people who still do the shirt and tie thing for remote meetings. I don't, but also haven't owned jeans or sportswear-for-people-who-don't-do-sport since I was a kid. It's been knitted sweaters, cargo trousers and slippers (and very little shaving) since day one. Quite like this des...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

the influenza vaccine does not prevent spreading, only a reduction in symptoms/morbidity. There are signs it's a bit of a better situation with covid, but only really with the strains the vaccines were built for. the guy at the hospital said that the rapid tests are only about 30% accurate altogeth...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Paleotrex feels a lot more intricate than the Weaponizers and Modulators. [...] how do you stay mad at a toy that looks like the Jurassic Park logo decided to get up and go for a walk?

Re: Boxes and boxes and boxes...

Don't keep them personally. I've got a few 'boxed' things (set of individual Quantron members, if anyone's interested when it's safe to go out and post things, a KO G1 Sideswipe, an MIB Japanese G2 Convoy, carded Noise and Graphy reissues for the novelty) but it's just for flavour in displays or wit...

Re: Hasbro is relaunching HeroQuest

Quick update -- there's now a UK stockist and opportunity to get the crowd funding bonuses. This apparently also includes the expansion sets in the price.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I think it's 65 based on parents and the NHS site. It's a good example -- now routinely given in childhood (one of the two main types is, different one for over-65 vaccinations) and no broader catch up programme. Versus what they've pissed up the wall this year on unusable PPE and direct-award contr...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

True, it's not to say there can't be benefit, it's just a bit of an arse-backwards approach and half the time they're just guessing between viral and bacterial; if something goes on for a while prescribe -- most GPs would never actually test to make a better decision and we're staring down antibioti...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Yeah, as I may have mentioned it was the stubbornness of the dry cough that was noticeable around ours, bad enough to stay far away from anyone who might be badly affected, and a colleague who travels a lot and just doesn't get sick getting it as bad as anyone. Colleague's husband who works for a re...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Glad you're feeling better -- it can reportedly come and go, particularly days 7-10 in the basic pattern, but I think what's being seen in more serious cases where people haven't had obvious underlying health issues is generally long exposure times or otherwise higher viral loads. (And as with pneum...

Concur with those who don't think it's a hoax but probably got covered up for a while, hence the quick escalation -- Trump wouldn't willingly admit illness.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Keeping me company whilst working... I'm not much for the cartoon but do love the movie and wanted a toy of this since I first saw it. Much nicer than the promo pics make out and even though the transformation's a bit of a cheat. Also, take care with the small arms, they're soft plastic and the join...

Hasbro is relaunching HeroQuest

Saw this over lunch. It seems to be a more-or-less straight redo with modern style assets. It's Hasbro Pulse, which = **** the rest of the world outside of the US/Canada, and I have to say lacks the charm of the realistic Les Edwards art that the original had. It's clearly had a lot of effort put in...
