    Praise for The Handmaid's Tale

    My wife and I just finished watching season two. I just wanted to post here that this is an excellent show. Before you watch, though, be aware that it has all the trigger warnings (except spiders). This show is tough to watch. Well worth it, especially for the themes. I have to admit that...

    What is your favorite 4x at the moment?

    Right now I'm noodling around with Age of Wonders 3. it's not bad and I'm having fun, but... there may be such a thing as too much "rock, paper, scissors". AoW3 is more like rock-paper-scissors-hammer-tinfoil-pencil. There are about 8 different vulnerabilitys, specializations, special...

    Authors you are hoping get picked up by HBO/Netflix/whoever?

    After the end of GoT, who would you like to see get put on the small screen (or big screen even)? Myself I'd like to see The Laundry Files. With so many urban fantasy TV shows out now, you'd think it would be a natural. And cost of doing a pilot should be a lot less than GoT. Magic, spy...

    Movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon that aren't too depressing?

    I remember really liking CTHD a lot. It was sad, but it wasn't depressing, you know? I watched Curse of the Golden Flower and House of Flying Daggers after CTHD. They were both good, but way more depressing, in a way that I'm unable to explain properly. I'm told Hero is also depressing...

    Released Today. What are y'all opinions on it? Good "paint the map" fun? Full of bugs? (I haven't got it yet, but I'd love to read what others have to say). Most important question: What will be the first country you play? :ROFLMAO:

    Mini painters - how to practice brush control?

    Been trying to freehand shield designs. Absolutely nothing fancy, just simple geometric shapes - squares, lines, chevrons. I get a good line and then - splooge! - it drifts off at an angle, or it widens or shrinks. argh! Are there good practices you learned in art school to improve?
