This Week in Geekdom #2 – San Diego Comic Con (Part One)

Guardians of the Galaxy

While there are plenty of videos running around the internet since it’s releasing August 1st, Marvel announced Guardians 2 will be written and directed by James Gunn, to be released July 27th or 28th in 2017. Conflicting reports exist over specific date.

 

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.

Gag Reel

 

 

And in casting, they have established Lucy Lawless (of Xena fame) as Agent Isabelle Hardley, Nick Blood as mercenary Lance Hunter, and Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Daniel Whitehall, a villain.

This will take place between Captain America and the Marvel One Shot Agent Carter. The series will include undisclosed USSR villains, and will feature Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark’s butler as liason between Stark and Carter.

Everything Else

Pirates of the Carribean 5 will release July 7, 2017

Firefly Online is a thing, apparently. It will feature the voices of the entire original cast, as well as Niska.

Comic series Locke and Key will become a movie trilogy, no other details appear to be released.

The two new Star Wars comics will take place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. There will also be a five issue series featuring Leia.

Star Trek and The Planet of the Apes will have a comic book cross over.

The Princess Bride is becoming a Broadway musical.

Dragon Ball Z is getting another movie in 2015, but there is no release date for the English Dub.

Jul 21 2014

This Week in Geekdom #1

A lot has happened in the geek world over the past few days, some receiving more attention than others. Thor is going to become not Thor and a woman is going get Mjolnir and be Thor. On a similar note, Captain America will pass his shield to the Falcon.

But what really surprised me this week – the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot movie is not a joke. I was under the impression it was either a joke or a kid’s movie, but it’s being written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X:Men: First Class), executive produced by Roberto Orci (Transformers and the new Star Trek movies) so apparently it’s a serious thing?

Pacific Rim will be getting a second movie as well as a 13 episode animated television series. This will be an arc, not story-of the week, but little information is available on either.

Books becoming television shows

Lev Grossman’s book The Magician’s is getting it’s own show on the Syfy channel, or at least a pilot. It’s an excellent book, aimed for anyone who has ever wished to run off to Hogwarts or Narnia.

Neil Gaiman’s American Gods will be a television series on Showtime, and Gaiman is very optimistic about the team who will be working on this.

Terry Brook’s Shannara will be ten episodes on MTV. It is going to be based on book two The Elfstones of Shannara not the first book.

Ongoing productions

In a stunning turn of events, Marvel’s Ant-Man has received a new change in people working on the script. (Hint, this has happened many times).

Constantine is stirring up controversy, due to the lack of cigarettes and lack of bisexuality.

Gotham will feature a new potential child-version of the Joker every week, leaving the viewers to guess what’s going on.

Andy Serkis (Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, and the motion capture guy) will have a role in both Star Wars Seven and the Avengers: Age of Ultron, and though he won’t speak of what characters he’s playing, he promises he won’t be Jar Jar Binks.

D&D – Inspiration

So Drew Smith, the MMP’s secret weapon, mentioned he liked the Inspiration mechanic and I wanted to talk about it with you guys a little more. I’m a fan of it but for those who haven’t read it I’ll throw it up here.

Inspiration is a rule the Dungeon Master can use to reward you for playing your character in a way that’s true to his or her personality traits, ideal, bond, and flaw. By using inspiration, you can draw on your personality trait of compassion for the downtrodden to give you an edge in negotiating with the Beggar Prince. Or inspiration can let you call on your bond to the defense of your home village to push past the effect of a spell that has been laid on you.

Gaining Inspiration
Your DM can choose to give you inspiration for a variety of reasons. Typically, DM’s award it when you play out your personality traits, give in to the drawbacks presented by a flaw or bond, and otherwise portray your character in a compelling way. Your DM will tell you how you can earn inspiration in the game.

You either have inspiration or you don’t – you can’t stockpile mulltiple “inspirations” for later use.

Additionally, if you have inspiration, you can reward another player for good roleplaying, clever thinking, or simply doing something exciting in the game. When another player character does something that really contributes to the story in a fun and interesting way, you can give up your inspiration to give that character inspiration

Now I want to look at what this does a little bit. “Inspiration is a reward for roleplaying.

I can get behind that. I like games that push people to play towards their characters, both the positive and negative aspects of them. I’m a fan of games like Fate and Cortex+. Savage Worlds has the benny which can be implemented this way which is cool. Other games have this too, so not original, but I’m more interested in playability than originality, so I think the idea is a positive one.

Your DM will tell you how you can earn inspiration in the game.

I like this. This means a conversation must be had to determine what is going to be important to the game. It provides modularity and customization. The thing I like less about it is it says “the DM will tell you”. I think, and would suggest to the people playing, that you should collectively decide what will garner inspiration at your table.

You either have inspiration or you don’t – you can’t stockpile mulltiple “inspirations” for later use.

Awesome. That means people should use it and then work towards gaining it again. In play this should mean that Roleplaying will move to the forefront because there is a tangible reward for doing it and the reward doesn’t suck and yet is not “game breaking”

Additionally, if you have inspiration, you can reward another player for good roleplaying, clever thinking, or simply doing something exciting in the game

Awesome once again. It’s a mechanic that encourages us to not just be engaged in the game but to help engage others in what is happening at the table. It looks like a simple mechanic but it could be a powerful tool for play for all the players at the table (I’m including the DM as a player here)

In total I’m a pretty big fan of the Inspiration mechanic and can’t wait to see how it works at the table. It should help promote a storytelling environment and make the bits on your character sheet come to the forefront more often. More important, if you don’t want it in your game just leave it out. That’s what this new version of D&D is all about. So those are my thoughts on Inspiration. What are yours?

We’re having a discussion over on the Misdirected Mark Facebook page about this right now. Want to be a part of it. Just come on over and ask to join the group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/271946122876896/730597237011780/?notif_t=like

Urban Shadows

Hello Folks and welcome to the lounge where we go deep to discover something new in the gameosphere. Today I talk with Andrew Medeiros about his new game being kickstarted right now called Urban Shadows. It’s a Urban Fantasy take using the Apocalypse Engine from Vincent Bakers Apocalypse World and being published by Mark Diaz Truman’s Magpie Games. Pull up a comfortable chair, grab a drink, take a listen, and let us know what you think.
