Brian sold me on S7S.
I was on the fence, given my fanatical love of Fate3 and not having any exposure to PDQ.
But this game does sound groovy.

S7S is an amazing game. There is a little bit that takes some figuring out, but I have been insanely pleased with it. It’ll also hold me over till Dresden Files comes out (the other game I’m waiting for). And hey, Chad’s been cool in our few interactions, so give him money.

Hi guys, good to hear you back again, the discussion here has totally sold me on S7S. :)

Also in other Fate related news, Cubicle 7 over here in the UK have finally published the hardback of Starblazer Adventures. I hold here in my hands a 630 page hardback edition. Oh holy crap its a mighty tome and an impressive feat production.

Great review of S7S guys, I’m going to spread this around to anyone even remotely interested in the game.

I bumped into the guys during one of those Godlike games a few weeks back and it looked like everyone was having a blast. Any game where people are gloating about their epic character deaths is awesome in my book.

Many thanks for mentioning Good Omens Con and I couldn’t believe it, my name, MY NAME! I heard it pronounced correctly. I was shocked enough to have a “KHAAAAAAN” moment. Thanks Chris R for bringing that home.

One minor correction for the show notes I guess, the con is July 18th, not the 13th.

Chris June 1, 2009 at 1:56 pm

I have no idea why I have been retarded on that Date. That is all me. Sorry about that Sean, I have amended the show notes to reflect the correct date.

And yes, David is AWESOME on the notes :)

Man, I’m still back in episode 14 (doing a drop-what-you-are-doing crawl through your content) and I can’t wait to hear this.

Brian, speaking of ep 14, how is your raygun-gothic/retro-scifi FATE hack going? I was toying with one myself (called it “Thrusters Alight!”) but if you’ve got one I may just use that and focus on the rest of my ragtag fugitive fleet of FATE hacks.

Of course, I may just have to retcon that one into a Savage Worlds riff…
