  1. Bane = Luchador Hardy =/= Luchador
  2. I waited monthsfor that script to come out!
  3. I'd love to see you get a screen credit for either, or even better, both!
  4. Why would you cut the chain, when the other cuff was latched onto a rust covered, mild steel, bolt on a mounting bracket? The chain would be really hard to cut with a hacksaw, but a bolt under tension with threads to provide a guide would be really easy, and possible with a dull blade. In fact if you made it past the half way point, you could likely break the bolt from there. The fact is that it is just a plot point to tell the story the writer wanted, regardless of the fact that there are several better options other than cutting off the hand. Most likely he cold have broken the cuffs
  5. I think it would be great if they wrote that into the story by having Rick say, "you know you could have sawed the bolt instead."
  6. I just don't know why a guy would choose to hack saw through his wrist instead of the bolt that he was handcuffed to.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. RAW will be screening Dark Country on Friday night too.
  17. WWII, USMC, and Japan - Hopefully on an island somewheer in the Pacific.
  18. 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
  19. Have a GREAT B-DAY, J, you DESERVE it!!!
  20. 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
  21. Looks like it would be in conflict with the 3D Film Festival being hosted by Tom at the same time.
  22. 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
  23. A picture taken by my daughter of the RAW Crew + 1, Kristyn, Tom, Tim, Jaime, Jim, and Mike.
  24. Heimdall, the Guardian of Bifrost Bridge, is in it, but they didn't cast someone that looks much like an Asgardian in the role =/
