  1. I think you were kinda annoying this time Stephen. Just because you were the head-to-wall thumping person who won’t give in to anyone else’s ideas. Also continuing to cut off Matthew just got kinda annoying as well, since he is the only person on the other side of the discussion. If you don’t have people on both sides it gets tiresome very quickly.

  2. Dragon Storm is also an RPG/TCG sort of game. But since it’s own and run by two people (copyright 1996 methinks) there probably won’t be a lot of fuss about the name being used for a superhero that has nothing whatsoever to do with the the rpg.

    You can check out the Dragonstorm RPG at http://www.dragonstorm.com .

  3. When you guys start reading my mind it’s scary. Usually it’s Stephen since our overly-analytical minds tend to think along similar avenues (geez, there’s a mixed metaphor for y’all) ._. But this time it was Rodrigo… the second I heard the word Dragonstorm I thought back to the Magic Deck, but then Rodrigo starts quoting the oracle text. When I heard that, I started clapping, which rather confused my cats… but not as much as when I went into a crazy laughing fit after watching a YouTube clip of the family friendly TV edited version of Sam Jackson’s line from Snakes on a Plane.

  4. So, based on your discussion of Marvel 1602 on this show, I bought it, and was so happy I did. What a cool book, and such pretty art.

    Also, “el estormo de dragone!” :)
