  1. Bane = Luchador Hardy =/= Luchador
  2. I think that's exactly what I need to do. So far what I have written comes out as more historical information with the potential for story.
  3. I'm wondering if the Boss might be an evil version of Charlie from Charlie's Angels. There are a lot of options you can use to help him validate his beliefs to the audience and still make him an evil bastard. You could give him either a mercenary code of ethics, make him a pure capitalist, or maybe go with a Nietzsche approach that people are sheep to be used by those that recognize they are above rules and laws. Great stuff and looking forward to more, Mike
  4. Brothers we are! And thanks for the props It may be too rich of a world, since I have everything imaginable to define. But thanks to Kdedu, I just defined a little more of the spiritual aspect. I think I need to just focus on a story, much like you are with "The Five Legendary Sisters of the Laughing Doggebi," if I am going to have any success at publishing anything. So far I have created opportunities for good story (I think) rather than writing any. Mike
  5. Here is a map defining the political boundaries and relations between the provinces and kingdoms of Shattered Empire. I still need to create a real terrain map.
  6. Great question, Kdedu! The answer is yes to both. I have discovered that I like to create a structure/theme to work within as part of my own creative process. The initial purpose was to create a game mechanic, but it turned out to be a lot more useful for defining the context of the world and storyline. The Celestial Order is a part of the spiritual dogma of Shattered Empire. The level of awareness by the characters is specifically based on their own spiritual intrerests. Windsong, for example, is the Warlord of the Ram Province, which is the spiritual arm of the Kingdom of the W
  7. KDEDU and JWEBER, I really appreciate the feedback. I posted the image and description in the Shattered Empire thread. I'd like to try and troubleshoot why you can't access the image the image/site, if either of you gets a chance to PM me. Many thanks, Mike
  8. This image has over 67000 distinct colors and the idea is to use a single color to represent both horizontal and vertical values. In the case of Shattered Empire an individuals Karma is their position in the Celestial Order and the vertical values represent Harmony vs. Destruction, while the Horizontal values represent Honor vs. Dishonor. From a game prespective, moving one's karma to a point in the Celestial order represents completing one of 8 paths of enlightenment. Mike
  9. Shattered Empire had its first media event on "The IN Show" while I was at LBCC 2010. It was unexpected, but fun and exciting to get the opportunity to share some thoughts about it. Here's the link
  10. LBCC is one of my favorite shows to do, aside from the opportunity to hang out with all my RAW friends, the support we get from this convention is first class. Mike Scigliano and his team go out of their way not only to ensure that we are able to get set up, but that we are comfortable and happy throughout the entire show. This year I was able to take a day off early and set up on the Thursday before the show. Chris Frobose drove out to meet me there and help me get everything set up, making it a lot easier than doing it with just myself. Scigliano set it up so I could actually drive m
  11. RAW will be screening Dark Country on Friday night too.
  12. WWII, USMC, and Japan - Hopefully on an island somewheer in the Pacific.
  13. Official Press Release San Diego – Comic-Con International: San Diego (Comic-Con), the largest comics convention of its kind in the world, today announced it will be staying in San Diego for the foreseeable future. Comic-Con reached a self-imposed attendance limit at the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) in 2007 and has had to cap attendance at approximately 125,000 people each year since. In looking at ways to better accommodate the growing demand from attendees and exhibitors, the nonprofit organization considered proposals for a move to larger facilities in Los Angeles or Anahei
  14. Have a GREAT B-DAY, J, you DESERVE it!!!
  15. Tim, Go ahead and auction off my friend slot, my daughter's friend slot, my ex-wife's friend slot, and my assistant's friend slot. Maybe you can get something out of all this effort you are putting into it. We'll still be your friend when it really counts anyway. Mike
  16. Looks like it would be in conflict with the 3D Film Festival being hosted by Tom at the same time.
  17. The plan early this year was to do a full RAW booth at NYCC. Unfortunately the schedules for Tom and Tim didn't really work out for this plan, so the next RAW appearance will be at the Long beach Convention Center on Halloween Weekend. Mike
  18. A picture taken by my daughter of the RAW Crew + 1, Kristyn, Tom, Tim, Jaime, Jim, and Mike.
  19. BIG B-day to ya RAW MAN!!!
  20. I guess I could have clarified that better, he's a submariner friend of mine that just left the Navy. He and I shared an office just before he got out. I don't normally take pictures, so I grabbed and posted a few that he took of RAW. The beard picture was shot and directed by our own Jim Daly Mike
  21. It was a CRAZY FUN show. The best part of all of it is our Crew of guys and friends. My only regret was just not having enough time to get around the show to see friends I normally catch up with every year. This year we had Tom, Tim, James Daly, the amazing Bruce Jones, Kristyn (Tom's PA), Frobose, and myself running the booth. Frobose came down from LA and spent the week with us and helped set up the booth. He was a tremendous help to both RAW and me personally. He's out pimping his 3D/Special Effects skills at SIGGRAPH this week and I wish him best of luck. His most recent work in
  22. Tim, Frobose, and I in the RAW Booth RAW Crew with Jim daly hidden behind Tim Classic shot of Tom with friend Mike. Me enjoying a moment at the Con with a Windsong print
  23. GREAT SHOW for RAW at SDCC 2010!!! I'll tell more tomorrow, when I'm a little more awake. As fun as it is, it's a pretty exhausting week. Mike
  24. I look forward to it It's gong to be a great show for RAW and good times for all!
