I just checked out this Ozzy doc on Youtube. It's pretty well done. Ozzy has been the man my entire life. If you are a fan, you'll dig it. There's a Lemmy one as well that's also pretty tight.
I just got done watching this one with my niece, Charles.
It's my show of the year. A high recommend for all people, not just SFF fans or animation fans.
You don't need to have played the video game to enjoy it, I didn't, and it's the best thing I've seen all year. Hell, it beats any book I've read this year as well.
|An Incomplete Movie|
I had no idea this wasn't a full movie. Was I supposed to surmise that from the "It Begins" bit on the poster? What a huge let down. The movie just ends, but the story does not.
So I can't recommend this to anyone without watching the whole thing, but from what I saw, it's okay. Hopefully they can make the rest of it, if this first part does well.
Jason Mamoa is great in it. I could watch an entire movie about his character. The Adventures of Duncan Idaho. Get on it, Hollywood.
|This advertises a He-Man v. Skeletor show.|
So it looks like Amazon is trying to start up a serialized fiction platform, call Vella. Basically, you get the first 3 episodes of a story for free, then you can use tokens to unlock later chapters.
It sounds interesting, and there's going to be a 50/50 royalty split with the authors.
I don't know if it's going to be viable long term, but we'll see. I know some authors who are seriously considering jumping in.
Who knows, I might put up a story or two. I've not put anything out in so long, it's well past time to jump back in.
This article here delves more into the specifics:
I've been mostly spending time this summer writing a table top RPG. I'm calling it Caves and Candles, for now.
There are a couple of cool concepts that make my game unique:
-Simpler than D&D 5e, skewing younger and good for new people.
-2D6 based, with extra dice for advantage, traits, etc...
-Ability scores that make more sense, but aren't totally foreign to people familiar with other TTRPG systems.
-A die drop dungeon creation system, for creating dungeons in real time, allowing more freedom for your characters to go off the rails as they please.
-Roll up a beastman, void beast, or great fiend in real time as well.
Oh, and my most difficult bit, 36 COMPLETE character classes, plus a classless 'Adventurer' as the default option to maintain simplicity.
EDIT: And how could I forget my unarmed, arena, professional wrestling based combat extension!!!
