Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Does anyone have pointers on roleplaying using instant messaging?
Awesome! If Skype chat (for IC) + Skype video (for OOC) + Rolz is the best solution for you, do mark your own answer as "Accepted" after the two-day waiting period. That's just so future RPG.SE users know at a glance that this question has been solved. Thanks! :)

comment What fantasy systems center on evil characters and specifically the consequences of being evil?
Oh yeah, that's a fair point. I think I may be focusing on the visual taint aspect too much. Carry on! :)

I'm going to yank the [dnd-miniatures] tag since that specifically refers to Wizards of the Coast's "D&D Miniatures" product line.

It's not Ral Partha (so not posting as an answer), but Reaper Miniatures is still in business and the quality of the sculpts (pewter and new resins) are comparable to the old Ral Partha. Being American, the shipping may be more reasonable than from Ral Partha Europe. It's no help if you're looking for particular Ral Partha sculpts, of course.

comment What fantasy systems center on evil characters and specifically the consequences of being evil?
The OP seems to be looking for something that emulates the Evil Makes You Ugly trope (WARNING: TVTropes rabbit hole!) that shows up in videogames like Fable. MLWM doesn't have rules for "more evil power you gain the more it changes your physical body, mental state and ability to deal with normals," so that's probably why it hadn't yet been mentioned.

spelling; html links should always be a title, not a "click here" or similar

comment How far will Eagle Eye let me see on the open ocean?
@LorenPechtel It's not. It's asking how far one can see, not how far one can see [insert object here]. Everyone else answering and voting understood the question being about distance, not eye-resolution or somesuch, so you're in the minority in interpreting the question as you have. Furthermore, your "answer" doesn't bother to answer the question – it's just lecturing that it's a bad Q. If you insist this question is about how far away you can see specific objects, why not answer that question? As it stands, you're not answering anything at all. If you must give a caveat, make it a comment.
