Won’t you join me in my quest to convince WizKids Games to release a Grant Morrison miniature for HeroClix DC? Grant’s a legitimate character (with superpowers) in the current DC continuity, having appeared briefly in Suicide Squad Volume 1, issue 58. Thus, he’s appropriate fodder for a HeroClix minature.
I encourage you to write email@example.com politely registering your interest in such a figure. It’s probably good to mention that Morrison exists in continuity, as per my geekish notes above.
I got back a nice response to my email:
Thanks for your email. I’m glad you are enjoying HeroClix. We do appreciate hearing from our fans about what they would like to see in future expansions, even if we can’t always accommodate the request. I have no idea what characters will be included in any future expansions. Game Design likes to keep the figures a secret until they are announced.
So there you have it. You’ll be appreciated. How often do you get the chance to be appreciated just for writing an email?
“All these facts suggest that there may be, somewhere in United States government (or better yet, the privately-held Federal Reserve system), a department of gnostic artists who perform the priestly function of communicating between man and God.”
The roleplaying industry is so damned quirky. A glam science fiction RPG about the transformative power of rock and roll? Why not?
Some of you may recall the Web-based puzzle game designed to promote Spielberg’s A.I. Pretty cool stuff, made cooler for me by the involvement of Sean Stewart. Anyhow, that game has defined an entire genre of alternate reality games and associated websites.
The community is pretty interesting. I particularly liked this writeup of a talk given by one of the authors of the A.I. game.
I cannot believe that there is a Web site dedicated to Vintage MBTA maps. But I’m glad there is.
The Civil War did not end in 1865…. The Confederates went into hiding and in 1908 they used their boy Teddy Roosevelt to found the FBI – conFederate Bureau of Inquisition.
You heard it here first. I collect kooks for the purposes of generating weird NPCs for games. Possibly I need a kook category.
