While I enjoyed "The Name of the Doctor" it seemed to me that there was a distinct lack of Silence Falling on the field of Trenzalore.

So does that cover art count as Malice aforefront?
(Sorry about that one.)
Between this and the colour maps, the wait for the print edition will be quite a long one...
Except there are a lot of democracies / republics in BT at the planetary level. Prior to its dissolution, the FWL remained a republic at the interstellar level. The Captain-General, prior to their 31st Century emergency powers, had limited influence over most operations of the nation.
Unless you split hairs on the definition of "democracy," they're quite common in BT and the House Sourcebooks and Handbooks have said so. Explicitly and directly, and I quoted one on that matter earlier. I also gave direct examples of planets with "democratic republics."
I knew about the Captain Marvel/Avengers Assemble crossover, but as far as I know Captain Marvel at least is doing reasonably well and isn't about to be cancelled. I guess we'll see when August solicits come out.
Marvel published ~70 or so issues. Their license from the toy company (Hasbro?) expired. No more ROM.
So we're seeing the axe fall over at Marvel. Age of Apocalypse, XXM and Captain Marvel all are apparently getting canned. Kind of a shame on the last two, they started out shaky but had become pretty enjoyable.
Pretty fringy even for BattleTech.
Everyone seems to have missed the bit about where the Ravens decided to open negotiations with the Outworlds rather than take them outright. The Ravens stumbled across a detatchment, challenged them to a Trial of Possession for their JS/DS/whatever. And the OA fighters fought them to a tie. They gained massive prestige from it, and the Ravens treated with them sort of as a equal rather than tried to subdue them.
I still don't understand why people think it would mean anything other than what it's always meant. Wouldn't that be the logical assumption?
Which is really kind of odd. The only time in the book she's mentioned as going a little extreme is on New Hessen. The earlier novels have her dealing with her issues, but also confronting and putting them behind her. The traits provided in the ER are rather...well.
I would note that they say she's just a "regular" level politician, not that she's necessarily bad at it. After all, she renegotiated the treaty with Jessica Marik, and did it without giving away anything about Andurien.
I don't see the Protectorate signing up to an anti-Davion campaign; the whole point of their separate existence was to get away from the militarism/paranoia of the Taurian state, and I can't seem them being in a hurry to give that up so quickly. And in any case, the new leadership on Taurus seems to be more level-headed this time around, with no indication of suffering quite the same fixation with the Federated Suns.
Now, a healthy dose of concern about the Capellans (or to a lesser extent, the Combine) is quite another matter entirely. (They may not take the same action as the Filtvelt Coalition, but the lesson would be the same one; if the Suns fall to the Dracs and Cappies, there'd be little to stop either power from going after them next.)
Agreed. How did we not know about this? This is a definite addition to my pull list for at least the first issue.
I can't find any examples of what fallout looked like on the inside. Anyone got any links?
In addition to learning all of your spells by leveling up, you will learn all of you specilization talents automatically. This can be awkward to remember when changing between specs, but its straight forward enough in practice. And since all three Mage specs are fairly close (each has strengths on different boss fights), don't feel pressured to use one you don't like.
Also coming up: MechWarrior, in October 2013.
Barber: "If you like some of the political action, and the personal stories, that we're doing in the Transformers books these days, I recommend that you check out these books."
Nope. It's... hard to explain, but there's no reason to know anything at all about the previous two games in the series. It exists in its own separate universe. Suffice to say, the ending ties the entire game together in a nice little bow... while leaving room for the future, as long as you give it a lot of thought and watch the after-credits bit.
Oh- and that reminds me, don't skip the credits. It's 2013, you all know better than to skip the credits in a game or movie.
The Summers Tribe hasn't married into the Magneto family tree yet, right? I imagine when they do it'll create a singularity that sucks the entire MU into it.
There you go! Marvel's next big summer event!
"The Avengers and the X-Men team up to prevent Thanos from bringing Hope Summers and Speed of the Young Avengers together in matrimony and save the entire Marvel Universe! Face front, True Believers! This one will change everything forever*! Excelsior!"
*Well, until the next big crossover event ignores it, undoes it, it's retconned out or Mephisto comes for their marriage too.
And why would Palpatine lower himself to using a "Jedi Weapon"? He had such disdain for them at Endor.
