    Random Encounter NYCC: Luke Crane, Inventor of the Burning Wheel and Mouse Guard RPGs

    Though New York Comic Con has come and gone, we here at Geekosystem were lucky enough to meet up with some amazing people at the massive celebration of all things geeky. Here's an account of some of the mysterious creatures that leapt out and attacked us along our epic quest. The only thing between Luke Crane and myself is a box set of his latest roleplaying game creation. He didn't know I was coming, and I didn't know I was going to see him, but it quickly becomes obvious that it didn't matter all that much to him. Crane, who is the creator of the Burning Wheel roleplaying system, is a fast thinker and a fast talker. There's nothing wasted about this man -- he's slim, with close cropped hair and a sharp mind. Which only makes sense, since Crane has spawned games that have cut to the very heart of roleplaying, and reworked it from the inside out in his games. For the uninitiated, Burning Wheel is a pencil and paper role playing game in the vein of Dungeons and Dragons. There are dice, there are sheets of paper, and the players say their intentions instead of moving pieces around a board. But Burning Wheel, while drawing from the traditions established by D&D, is very much its own game. To take a superficial difference, the iconic 20-sided dice of D&D will find no home on a Burning Wheel table. The game shirks such exotic things, and uses simple, ubiquitous six-sided dice instead. But as a game, there are deeper, subtler differences.

    Preview for Young Justice, DC’s New Sidekick Series, Is Very Male

    No one was really allowed to film in the preview rooms of New York Comic Con, but we know that doesn't actually stop people. And for hand-cam footage, this actually ain't that bad. Although I could nitpick about some of the dialogue and Batman appearing in broad daylight, overall, the show looks worth checking out. The animation is slick, and, as a Bruce Timm/Paul Dini-verse fan, not a style that I'm used to seeing my heroes in. But seriously where are the girls. Not even one? No Wonder Girl? No Supergirl? Hell, I'd even take Mary Marvel. It's not just the male superheroes in the Justice League who think it's a good idea to train preteens to beat up criminals. You are letting down the trope.
