Argh why 5th? Why not get more input from the user base(Hell a lot of the writers now are LONG span players and fans) and get 4A bug fixed then see how many of us buy  SR4B The Matrix That Makes Sense Edition etc. I`d buy two copies one for me and another for the players. I`d like to see an official rules Wiki/SRD not just a FAQ. Give it to the Scary Canadian to do?
Scary Canadian? Isn't that like Military Intelligence or Microsoft Works? ;)

You know, I know this is old and off topic, but my Canuck pride demands a response...

James freaking Bond.  Based on an actual Canadian that Ian Fleming met in the war.

And on an on-topic note: Am I the only one concerned that SR5 might overwrite stuff I might want to put into a campaign between now and its release?  Sure, I can just choose to pretend the change isn't made or find a way to work it in, but...

Would that make a micro-brewery a smaller group of Canadians?

...

This terminology would make reading certain areas of history - the Battle of Vimy Ridge becomes a great big brewery taking an extremely fortified German position that completely resisted all other attempts...  But the best would be the War of 1812.

Alternatives would include "hockey team", in which case the above examples would make staggering amounts of sense.

I give Canadians their props. The US has invaded them, like, a bunch, and gets repulsed every time. Heck, they came over and torched the White House, once, as a sort of "Get out, you hosers!" thing. People forget that.

Kudos to them!

I hate to kick a new guy square in the nuts, but...

Sorry dude, but Fleming based James Bond on a whole slew of individuals. Fleming himself said he drew on aspects of pretty much every individual he worked with during WWII, however main points were drawn from himself, his brother, and a few other Englishmen along with a Ukranian and a Serbian. You might be thinking of Conrad O'Brien-ffrench, who did move to Canada after WWII. However he's as much a Canadian as William Shatner is an American.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

Actually, James Bond is based on a few people Mr. Flemming met, one of which is Christopher Lee (Yes, the actor and heavy metal artist.).

The Canadian fellow, Sir William "Intrepid" Stevenson, is where we get the 007 from, however.

How did James Bond make it into a discussion of SR5?

The frequency that the actor who plays bond changes is about the same?

My interest in James Bond ended when the cheesiest title of a Bond film of "The World Is Not Enough" was released!

Does anyone wish to comment on my thought on the last page before the attempted highjacking of my thread was unleashed?

I think with the recent announcements all the relevant topics are now over in General Discussion.

You might try out the last few Bond films, though. Completely different look and feel. Hardly any gadgets, Bond is more brutal, and the villains are slightly less fantasy based. Definate influences from the Bourne movies. You'll probably either hate them or love them.

He made a good Bond, imo.
I'd even go so far and say that, to me, Casino Royale is the best bond movie ever.

For me it was Goldeneye. 

My mother's favorite Bond is Connery.  She can't stand Craig either.  Hell, Dalton is better than Craig.


On to things that matter.....    Since no one but me wants to discuss SR5, then I'll leave this thread to all you highjackers, and bid you adieu.
