Seemed to Me...

Well, that's good to hear. I assumed there were quality problems with the initial printers as well, which led to the desire to print in-house in the first place. I am sorry to hear the in-house venture didn't stand up. And, like I said, I'm not complaining. I am coming at this with a philosophical q...

Re: No Sense...

I understand that Mongoose opened a press of their own and then recently re-outsourced the printing I don't think they've finished outsourcing it again yet. LBH But, I would assume they went to a new company, yes? I hope so. I love the games here and hate to see all the bashers and ne'er-do-wells l...

No Sense...

Okay, this makes no sense to me. I admit, I'm new to Mongoose products, but I've been gaming for over a decade and into printing for four or five years. How can there be "print problems" this often? Let me confess: I have not received a faulty product, so this isn't a direct complaint, just a curios...

I hear ya...

Yeah, I figured it worked something like that, but after researching Artificial Intelligence for the last couple years I just can't buy into the "mind is a computer program" thing. Don't get me wrong- I LOVE Ghost in the Shell and similar narratives that try to show the artificiality of the human be...

Indeed. And continuing to support the rules w/o producing minis is not the end of the game. Throw in a modified Eldar Jetbike if you need to.

Impressive...

Wow. I am very impressed with this dialogue. Vincent, you have addressed each criticism, gripe, and query. My opinions of Mongoose have been rushing up and down since I heard of them only months ago: Great indie company of Brits that got Conan Rather big company with no quality control Company that ...

Haven't Gotten to Morgan Yet, But...

I think the sleeve idea would be fun to try out in an RPG, but deciding which attributes are the sleeve's and which the personality's would be annoying. Not to mention the fact that a mind is not a different material (and thus transferable) anyway, which seems like a rather out-dated sci-fi to me. I...

Same Difference?

Yes, the book (Though, "Electric" not "Electronic") is quite different and contains... -dramatic music- ... a point! Without Mercerism or Phil Resch, the story is just a cops 'n' robbers piece. Granted, the movie has generated the "what if Deckard is a replicant" interpretation, but that is simply b...

Hey Matt, did you ever have Coven models done?
Afraid not - we may have some concept art banging around though. . .
Any chance of buying/inheriting it?
