Limitless Adventures has launched a new D&D5E product line: 5th Evolution.

What is 5th Evolution?
5th Evolution (5Evo) takes the wildly popular D&D5e game mechanics and applies them to new genres. 5Evo products are a marriage of comics and roleplaying with each book
divided into three sections:

  • Part 1: the comic. Each 5Evo book opens with a comic that GMs will share
    digitally with their players prior to the gaming session. These comics serve to
    introduce the genre and setting, as well as to get players invested in the coming
    adventure.
  • Part 2: the adventure. The second section of the 5Evo book is a one-shot
    adventure, complete with pregenerated characters, that picks up where the comic
    left off.
  • Part 3: the source guide. Finally, the third section of each 5Evo book is a source
    guide that gives the GM the monsters, equipment, and characters to create their
    own adventures in that particular genre.

The best part? All 5Evo products are completely compatible. Want to have space marines
fight a T-Rex, or see how your wizard would fare against a machine gun-toting mech?
Well you can do that and more with 5Evo.

What Genres Will Be Available?
Three different books will be available during the Kickstarter: Super Heroes, 80’s Horror
Movie, and World War 2.

Genesis of the Daleks on the Big Screen

Posted in Dr. Who with tags , , , , on May 25, 2018 by boccobsblog

DRWHO

For me, Dr. Who begins and ends with Tom Baker. “But I like David Tennant.” Be quiet, adults are speaking! As I was saying, the fourth doctor is the longest running, and most recognizable doctor and has long been a fan favorite, so when I saw a commercial for Tom Baker on the big screen I felt the need to share it with you. Prior to the showing of Deadpool 2, AMC ran a commercial for a classic Dr. Who episode to be played in AMC theaters this summer. From AMC’s website:

In celebration of the upcoming Blu-ray release of Tom Baker’s complete first season in Doctor Who, audiences will be treated to a special cinema length Director’s Cut of one of the most popular of all Doctor Who stories, ‘Genesis of the Daleks’! The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his companions, Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan, are transported thousands of years into the past to the ancient planet Skaro where they are given a mission from the Time Lords to prevent the evil scientist Davros from introducing to the universe the most destructive race of killing machines ever created, the Daleks! The event also features a first look at ‘In Conversation with Tom Baker’ a newly recorded interview with the Fourth Doctor himself!

See Genesis of the Daleks at AMC Theaters on Jun 11th.

A Spoiler-Free Review of Solo

Posted in Films, Movie Review, Star Wars, Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 25, 2018 by boccobsblog

SOlo

The Good

The Aliens –  Lady Proxima (Linda Hunt), Moloch (Andrew Jack), and Rio Durant (Jon Favreau) look so realistic.

The Star Destroyers – There is a quick shot of the ships being built on Corellia and it really shows the scale

The Shower Scene – I won’t ruin it, but it is spicy.

Clone Wars – There is content from the Clone Wars cartoon included in the film.

Gender Equality – Solo has several strong female roles without being heavy-handed and obvious like in the Last Jedi where every male character has to be ineffectual and useless. In Solo it is a given that men and women are equally capable of being badasses, as it should be.

The Badass

Cast – This movie is perfectly cast. Honestly there isn’t a bad performance. Donald Glover KILLS it as Lando, and Woody Harrelson make a great scoundrel mentor. Everyone plays their role to perfection.

The Falcon – She is glorious as you knew she would be. There is no retcons to worry about, she is the YT-1300 you know and love.

Thermal Detonator – Click!

Chewie – Our first look at Chewie is scary. They always say Wookies are tough and violent, but you’ve never really seen it until now.

The Look – The CGI is seamless. I am not a fan of CGI, but it really well done in Solo. The movie is stunning to watch.

The Cameo – The keep this spoiler free, I can’t say much, but suffice it to say there is a surprise cameo that could mean big things for a future Star Wars film. It surprised the hell out of me.

The Ugly

L3-37 – I probably am alone here, because the character was funny and well voice-acted by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, but the free-willed, sassy droid is becoming (or has already become) old hat following so closely after Rogue One’s K-2SO. If every movie has a free-willed droid, they cease to be meaningful and rare.

Hell – This is a small gripe, but Han says “hell” a lot, which seems like lazy writing, there would be no hell in the Star Wars universe and the anachronism bugs me; not from any religious standpoint, just that the word wouldn’t be in their lexicon. It would be like if Lando said, what happens in Vegas, stay in Vegas.

I’m having trouble finding bad things to say. It was a solid movie.

In summary

I thought Solo was fun. Not as dark or serious as Rogue, but a light scoundrel adventure. It is beautiful, and perfectly cast. There are seeds for possible sequels, but the movie isn’t just a set up to something.

Spoiler-Free Review of Deadpool 2

Posted in Comic Books, Films, Gaming Culture, Movie Review with tags , , , , , , on May 18, 2018 by boccobsblog

DP2

Went out last night to see Deadpool 2 and here, in B3 tradition, is the good, the badass, and the ugly.

The Good

Cable – I thought it would be weird having Josh Brolin in another Marvel role so soon after Infinity Wars, but it wasn’t weird at all. Brolin is a top-notch talent.

X-Force – DP2 opens the door to an X-Force movie (which is already in the works).

Blind Al – Leslie Uggams doesn’t get much screen time in DP2, but what time she has is gold.

Alpha Flight – Was that a hint towards an AF movie in the works or just a tip of the hat to Canadian supers?

The Badass

It’s Funny – The jokes are good, not as good as DP1, but Ryan Reynolds was squeezed onto this Earth to play this role.

Dopinder – Karan Soni reprises his role as the lovable cab driver and delivers some serious laughs.

The Vanisher – This bit made me laugh so hard.

Domino – Zazie Beetz is awesome as the latest incarnation of Domino. I keep trying to decide what I think of the use of vitiligo for her spot, it kind of works.

Fire Fist/Russell – Julian Dennison delivers some of the best laughs with his pen. (Prison wallet…smh)

The Ugly

Juggernaught’s helmet looked goofy. What is it about superhero helmets that are so hard to replicate – I’m looking at you Magneto.

Cable’s Choice – Without giving too much away, why wouldn’t Cable return home immediately after accomplishing his goal? It seemed very uncharacteristic. A plot hole to allow him to take part in the X-Force movie.

The Heaven Barrier – The whole subplot was a bit cliche.

Shatterstar – This is just a personal preference but, Im a Shatterstar fan and was excited at the idea of him hitting the big screen. I would have liked a little more Shatterstar.

Sequel Slump – DP1 was a great movie, but the sequel falls short. It is hard to say exactly why, maybe it is the attempt at a semi-serious “good guy” plot.

In Summary

All in all, Deadpool 2 was an enjoyable movie with some genuine laughs, but it fell short of the first installment.

Becoming One of Them — A Writer’s Notebook

When I was younger, I played Dungeons & Dragons a couple of times with some friends I had back then. I don’t remember liking it all that much. I felt the storylines were unoriginal, and the characters we created had little to no depth. Whether those statements are true or teenage me was being overly […]
