I have a copy of Rage from Gcon for all Promoter Prime Printed subscribers that will go out in the Q3 mailing in September. I have asked Mike about a PDF and hope he will respond to everyone soon about that possibility.
I just got this in the mail a few days ago. I felt like a teenager again, filled with such excitement waiting for the sacred envelope to arrive! Due to a very limited amount of free time I have, I usually only make one FG purchase per year, and it always brings back that old “rush”.
My wife is a Kohl’s addict (and I’m sure yours is too) and yesterday she came home after a shopping trip and was quite ticked at herself for overspending. I just held up the FG envelope and said “Do you know how much MY guilty pleasure costs? FIFTEEN DOLLARS…and they even hand print my name on the envelope!” MWAHAHAHAHA (insert evil laugh)!!!
The timing of this set couldn’t be better, as my wife just switched jobs and will now have a more normal schedule. Plus, my daughter starts kindergarten soon (my son in second grade), so I will now have a lot more free time on my hands! THANK YOU LORD!!!
I’m (still, LOL) playing the Early Classics era so I enjoy anything related to those years, so these cards hit the spot! As for Red Talon (who, according to ancestry.com, is the great grandson of the Gobbedlygooker) and Duke Of Destruction, I will bring them in mid-2086 and they will leave at the end of 2087. I’ve already played 2087 (who hasn’t?) but I plan to re-play it when I reach that point, so I can easily plug these guys into the mix.
Now, I also (ever so slowly) run a Classics-era WGX fed so I plan to move RT & DOD over there for a couple game years so I can get more use out of them.
As for the other four, they are so different from their “actual” characters that I’m just going to change their names and toss them into my WGX as well! I figure they’re 2080s-esque anyways so why not? I’m up for name suggestions by the way.
Or, perhaps the grandest idea of all just hit me? Maybe I could take the Lord Nexus card and use it to completely ERADICATE FROM HISTORY THAT VILE, DISGUSTING, PIECE OF **** 2084 CARD!!! OH THE HORROR!!! Lord Nexus is my favorite all-time character so I have a lot of anger issues over the 2084 atrocity. I will complain about this whenever the opportunity arises, LOL.
Also, just a footnote. When the L-FSCE project was announced, I submitted a character (Ulencio) but my first idea was to do an evil Russian to oppose Commander Sam. I then abandoned the idea, thinking it was too “easy” and I needed to put some more depth to the character, so I came up with Ulencio instead. So it’s kind of cool to see the original idea for Comrade Terror was an evil Russian! Hey, it was the 80s after all!
Well, that about wraps up my thoughts on this. Nice work all around! Thanks for the jolt of COTG energy!
