Re: X-Men Money Game

$4 Rachel
$4 Nightcrawler
$3 Psylocke
$3 Iceman
$1 Banshee

Think Sean and Bobby can lead the all-out assault, Betsy and Kurt take a stealth approach to take the bigger hitters down, while Rachel runs TP co-ordination, and takes down Mags once Kurt steals his helmet.

Re: Random Thoughts

True on China and the Saudis, but if you look at the tone of said criticism it's very different than tone used by those critical of Israel. I think if you think about the criticism of China for example is very rarely aimed at their treatment of the Uighur community, and equally rarely espousing the ...

Re: Random Thoughts

I think we need to be a bit careful re: linking (or not linking) gun or any sort of violence really with mental health. There are conditions which can manifest in violence, but it is by no means a generic "mental health" issue, more very specific issues, and also usually coincides with a situation w...

Re: Random Thoughts

I think you've missed my point slightly there, Token. My point was that for all the talk of self-defence, very very few discharges of weapons are for the purposes of actual self-defence. Further more, how many cases has having a weapon prevented harm compared to causing harm? My suggestion is that o...

Re: Random Thoughts

While I get what you're saying, you can't really know that for sure though. You're using the results from a FPTP election and extrapolating for a PR one. However the voting system affects voting patterns and a FPTP system pretty much demands tactical voting. If you think your preferred party doesn'...

Re: Random Thoughts

It’s exactly the same over here, Cable. I cannot in good conscience cast a vote for the Labour Party whilst they have a leader who won’t fight harder against prejudice in his party, nor someone who seemingly can’t control his own party. I’ll never vote Conservative and the centrist party... no. Jus...

Re: Random Thoughts

As long as you have First Past The Post, the system has a tendency to devolve into bipartisanship. Even if the UK has more parties, at the end of the day, the idea of a government not being lead by either Labour or the Conservatives seems extremely far-fetched. There may be a change of that if the ...

At the same time, imagine if you make him a victim of Rwandan or Bosnian genocide. Yes, the Holocaust is still remembered today, but these are things that happened in our lifetimes. The emotional impact could easily work. And there are plenty of other groups that are being demonized today that the ...

And yeah, with I agree BC - Mags HAS to be Jewish. With rampant anti-semitism again on the rise (look at the Labour party of today), I think race / ethnic origin switching him would be an utter disgrace frankly.

Re: Disney plans for X-men

I think we as a society are a bit more aware of the power differentials than anything else, as BC rightly indicated. A 37 year old and a 17 year old who meet in casual social circumstances, is very, very different from a 37 year old who is essentially the main care provider of the 17 year old. In th...

Re: Disney plans for X-men

Magneto has to be a Holocaust survivor. It's so strikingly obvious to me. Without that element of his backstory, it severely weakens his motives, and no other genocide in recent history (whilst all equally shameful episodes of our shared human history) have anything like the same level of public con...

Re: Draft Discussion Thread

I'm gonna have to dissent from the last few posts, I really don't need to see more cross publisher / media franchise drafts. I enjoy drafts where the finalised rosters can quite easily make sense AND be a workable comic book concept*. I'm all for wildcard rules within the same publisher house where ...

My entire (hero) roster is animal based. Wasp and Nightcrawler are named after insects. Black Condor and Hawkgirl are birds. Wolverine and Black Panther are mammals. Beast Boy and Vixen have multiple animal traits. I figured a bunch of animal themed heroes would be fun to put together in some sort ...

Are we now using this thread to reserve spots in upcoming drafts? If so, I'd like to reserve my spot for BC's A-Editorial draft and Cable's X-Edit 2 if spots are opening up early, but will be skipping Das' teen heroes draft as I struggled with the DC parts of the last draft. I know Cable mentioned t...

Draft was very sexy. I lost Storm and I wanted Avril to be Quasar but the I had to replace her too. Loved the freedom of using multiverse versions of established characters, and I wouldn’t mind to be able to do this from time to time in drafts. It’s giving an extra kick in variety. My problem, agai...

Re: Marvel vs DC Draft

Surprised it took so long for some picks to be drafted. I'd have thought Zatanna was at least a mid-draft pick. I was considering her for a long time, and thought she could easily fit HotKnives' magic themed team. Also, Captain America being a last round pick?! Aquaman, Hulk and loads of GLs still o...

So are folks excited for the Black Knight? I hardly know the character.

Usually, specifics (character lists / special rules etc.) are not posted by the moderator until either after the current draft is finished, or it's very near the end of the game. I guess this is to keep the focus on the endgame, rather than giving us a nice shiney new toy to play with too soon and l...

Re: Draft games - own category

Maybe the Uncanon Dungeon Forum can be used for this, as there isn't much traffic left in there. I know the Drafts aren't RPGs, but they are a mix between a game and fan fic. Or - in my case - often an art project. I'd always wondered if the mock-ups I've done for draft book covers would sit on Unc...
