I went to see the local matinee of District 9. It was a pretty fun movie. WETA was in full effect for this one. The giant spaceship over Johannesburg was very convincing. The story had characters that were somewhat thin, but convincing enough to keep you interested until the mech joined the fight.
There were a couple of great scenes, not the least of which was a desperate chase scene that you didn't know how it was going to end.

Although we have started a new adventure with first level characters, I have been slowly working on the Tsojcanth game also. I was spending more time on finishing up all the prep of my Destiny of Kings online game. With that taken care of, I wanted to at least post some good news for 4 of the Tsojcanth characters.

I must have annoyed my DM one too many times about flintlock guns-or a gun that shoots fireballs, which when you think about it makes sense-cuz he gave me a taste of what I wanted-ie something other than Middle Age tech- an ironclad, steam powered, and equipped with cannons!
Sadly, the dwarves are not known for their generosity of sharing technology, so it's unlikely my group will be getting one for our land, which borders the sea, any time soon.
