There once was a young Prince named Proyas;
Was he crapped on by Destiny? Oh, yes:
You see, he took the fall for
The deeds of his mentor,
Who hung him to sway until dead, alas!

Solomon Kane Kickstarter is getting interesting. The live videos with Leo, the creator with Mythic Games, are fun. He's so enthusiastic.

I haven't played Gloomhaven, but it's very popular with board gaming enthusiasts. It's a regular being compared with new game reviews, so it's a high bar for ranking games.

I've heard Gloomhaven is good.  I know some people that play it, from the group of people I play some card games with.

Gloomhaven, anyone seen it, anyone played it?

pic of some of the miniatures: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3113798/gloomhaven?size=large

A bit pricey maybe, but boardgames with miniatures tend to be. Looks pretty cool. Kind of like D&D light for filthy casuals (like myself).

Steam has a tabletop sim of it for playing online. $20 for the tabletop sim, download for gloomhaven is free...

For those with an adequate number of friends but short on funds, its not a bad solution.

Quote
Christ would never have made the impression he did on his followers if he had not expressed something that was alive and at work in their unconscious. Christianity itself would never have spread through the pagan world with such astonishing rapidity had its ideas not found an analogous psychic readiness to receive them. It is this fact which also makes it possible to say that whoever believes in Christ is not only contained in him, but that Christ then dwells in the believer as the perfect man formed in the image of God, the second Adam. Psychologically, it is the same relationship as that in Indian philosophy between man’s ego-consciousness and purusha, or atman. It is the ascendency of the “complete”——or total human being, consisting of the totality of the psyche, of conscious and unconscious, over the ego, which represents only consciousness and its contents and knows nothing of the unconscious, although in many respects it is dependent on the unconscious and is often decisively influenced by it. This relationship of the self to the ego is reflected in the relationship of Christ to man.

Good choice. Of all the stuff that's been recommended on this forum, I think Blindsight is one of the best. It soothes that Bakker itch.

Just finished the first part. It's really good so far. Had to go back and re-read a couple of things to get all the characters names into my head and their "occupations" but every book is like that for me.

Just finished Hotshot, one of Peter Watts short stories set in the Sunflower Cycle universe.
Fucking amazing, somewhat of a twist near the ending too http://rifters.com/real/shorts/PeterWatts_Hotshot.pdf
