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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Anyone know anyone from Silent Death or MechWarrior?

Looking to make contact with someone from either of those games.  Or any one at fantasy flight.

Figured this wasn't a bad place to start.

Black Widow Pilot on The Miniatures Page is the lead developer at Metal Express who currently hold the Silent Death rights.  Last I saw the website was down.  I've always been a little gunshy with Mx as I'm pretty sure ICE's ex-CEO who never paid anyone or anything is behind it.

One of the Silent Death designers was an early customers for my first published RPG way back. But around 1999 or so vanished from conventions. Havent heard from since. Looks like he went on to work on Shadowrun Duels and Mage Knight.

Huh. I was pretty curious about the Silent Death thing, since I've got one of hte books and tried to get a pdf from the Metal Express website about five years back... and after days of wrangling Paypal (since I refuse to answer personal questions to a fucking middleman.... like, weirdly personal... like, Can I come over for dinner levels of personal...) I finally paid for it, only to get a reciept from some carribean island, and no PDF....


Now its looking strange, like some shady group of hitmen have been quietly removing everyone involved... time to call Mulder and Scully!

Sounds like a false front scam.

Maybe. That's four or five cups of coffee I won't be drinking. I'm more upset that I can't figure out how to get the PDFs I wanted or Silent Death Miniatures than I am the greenbacks I sent to some surfer asshole, wether a hacker or conman I couldn't say.  I REALLY wanted to see capital ships...

Well, ya don't have to be so smug about it, Dave... geeze I only commented because the thread caught my eye... I hadn't thought about it in five years, mang!  :)

Looks like if this weekend goes well for me (17 hour drive for a job interview? It fucking better!!!) I may be passing ducats to Drivethru RPG, which at least I know will both take my money and give me pdfs. If carribean surfer assholes are getting the money from Drivethru... I don't really care, so long as I got mine, yo.
