This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Quote from: The Butcher;723704
So many amazing fantasy IPs entirely untapped, and they go for Magic: the Gathering?

Fuck Hollywood.

I once dreamed that there was a Dying Earth movie, and Terry Gilliam was directing, and Sir Christopher Lee (in his Hammer Horror years) played Mazirian. Now that would make me sit up and pay attention.

Keep in mind that Hollywood options stuff for movies all  the time. And then changes their mind later. Sometimes at the proverbial 11th hour.

So far of the batch of Hasbro IP movies optioned. 3 have seen light. SOP.

I hope Uwe Boll directs.
Rules for effective DMing:
1. Bring snacks.
2. The dice are always right.
3. I master the game, the game does not master me.
4. Momentum over perfection.
5. The game must go on!

Now that would be the rumor to start if you want to see abject terror on forums.

I think that Guillermo del Toro could do it justice.

What little I've seen of Transformers: Prime is edgier than I would have expected for the channel.
