I can't help but wonder if the person running City of the Spider Queen and saying it's D&D 3.5 knows that the adventure isn't, but there's an obscure conversion document that could help him out with some sticking points.

This is it:

(Yes, that's for a completely different book. Yay for 3.5 line development.)

There's some other sticking points from what I can remember back then, like I'd read up on the fine details of the spells used for the mechanics in the last area of the adventure (being vague in order to avoid spoiling it for your players.) And I'm just going to stop my own personal sperg train before it gets started.

tip 1: do not adopt aboriginal words and concepts like manitou for anime spirits

tip 2: just make a thread

Ooo, Coronet City Homicide just brought crane operation into the mix.

I work at a crane training/certification institute and I handle them at least two days a month, particularly boom trucks and 45 ton mobile cranes; just today I packed up a truck-mounted telescopic boom crane before practical exams tomorrow. I'm hoping everything gets portrayed well.

It's a Star Wars roleplaying game. It's a space elfgame. If you are looking at it expecting full accuracy about your menial job's minor rituals and small items, you are a) really overshooting it and b) being the kind of "realism" idiot no one wants to play with.

Dude, the only thing I was expecting was that the GM wouldn't make boneheaded decisions and would treat the subject matter as well as he's treated the rest of the material in his game.

But seriously, "menial job"? More than just being insulting, you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

"Treat the subject matter as well as he's treated everything else." Cranes are not space elves, I am not sure how hard this is to understand. Unless the game turns out to be a hidden ad for an iOS crane simulator, the crane is window dressing.

But then again, it's not very surprising you can't separate the two, since your own super-realistic misery porn recruit (missing rules for cranes, you may want to go back and fix this obvious, essential gap) included a gunplay house rule solely to reinforce racist stereotypes of black youth. I guess cranes and fantasy are the same thing to you, after all.

Peanut gallery feedback: I liked chitoryu12's zombie game better when Stephen King wrote it and it was called Cell.

The guy who runs Orokos is a really nice, fun guy. I used to hang out with him on the Penny Arcade forums.
