Scorpion

Gaming things!

If you're into d20, here's a link to a new prestige class for the Iron Kingdoms setting - the gun mage. Iron Kingdoms is the setting used in the War Machine miniatures game I am into, and I rather dig it.

Heroclix Newz - Did I mention the link to the IndyClix list? Boneyard is always right about these things. Also, I am making teams to represent the factions in the X-Men: Evolution cartoon (Xavier's students, the teachers, the Brotherhood, and Magneto's crew.) The question is, should I push to get them all to 300 points, which will mean upgrading some past their rookie/more representative figs? Or should I keep them around where they are (~200ish.) [And anyone who says "make both lists!" will be mocked without mercy. I'll *eventually* do both, after some playtesting. Yeesh.]
