300 some-odd pages beg to differ. Lol

But the real reason I'm not reading it yet is cause the book is always better than the movie. If I read the book first, I'll just be upset when they cut some of the stuff from the movie. I learned my lesson after I read the Harry Potter the Prisoner of Azkaban, then saw the movie. So much was missing.

I'd rather watch it first, then read it.

Despite the page numbers, it's a pretty easy read, well...if you don't mind crying in some places that is. 

I do have such high hopes for the movie though, I really can't wait to see it.  But yeshhhhh, watch it, read it, and tell me if you love it :)

Most likely I will. Unfortunately, I have to wait until tomorrow to see it, so please no spoilers.

There will definitely be no spoilers for me, I'm going to go watch it on Sunday :)  Also, if anyone does see it before than, and wants to share, please wrap it in the Spoiler tag.

A big thank you from the GM :)

Ummmm.... Saw it.... Managed to convince my friends to go to a midnight showing. ;D Gotta say, I was impressed, although I can't say the same for my friend, but he's a brute that doesn't comprehend character depth and a story so I don't value his opinion all that much.

I'm pretty sure there are spots still open. Undisclosed wants male and female tribute from each district before we begin, so we definitely could use more players.

Check out the links on the first page. There's a wiki page that gives a little detail on the districts.

Name: Antony Tueur
Division: District 2
Age: 18
Gender: Male

Height: 6'1"
Weight: 140 lbs.
Eyes: Green
Hair: Black
Skin tone: Fair
Distinguishing Marks: Has a few scars from sparring with sharp blades, most notably a thin scar on the right side of his neck.
Physical Description:
His body is built almost entirely of wiry muscle. His slim build hides a surprising amount of strength, given that he's been training specifically for the Games since his childhood. His parents, knowing that he would most likely face at least a shortage of food during the Games, occasionally deprived him of food for up to three days sometimes in an effort to build his tolerance towards hunger. Agile and built for speed.

Likes: Intelligent people, exploiting others fears to his advantage, psychology, snide commentary, chess.
Dislikes: Wrenches in his plans, not knowing or at least being able to theorize what his enemy is doing.
Fears: Large arachnids, being overpowered in single combat, or worse, being outmatched in intellect.
Personality:
 A cold, calculating, and utterly ruthless person. He's willing to go to any length to get what he wants, and out in the Games, he's planning on doing just that. Has a "kill or be killed" mentality. On the flip side, he's charismatic, personable and persuasive, with a knack for using this talent to get inside peoples' heads and for manipulation. His conscience hasn't developed well, and he only feels the occasional pang of remorse, if at all.

History:
A Career, Antony was trained from his early childhood to compete in the Games. Both of his parents are overseers in munitions factories, and as such, had the capital to afford to train him in woodcraft, combat, and psychology. Though he initially resented this early in his life, he came to accept it and even look forward to it as he grew older.

He watched every Game that he could, studying the strategies and general movements of the Tributes, and gradually continued his training. He found his preferred style of combat was in close with knives, preferably from behind with the element of surprise on his side. While he's trained enough to not be a pushover in a straight fight, he's still relatively scrawny compared to some of the Tributes who come from a background with more manual labor. He defeated both of his parents at chess by the age of ten, and defeated two elder Careers in a simulation of the Games at age fifteen. Antony has waited until his last chance to participate in the Games in order to prepare himself to the utmost degree for the competition.

Question! From my take on the film, weapons are a pretty crucial part of the Hunger Games, but the current system as I understand it allows the same sort of damage matrix for all attacks. Someone could score more damage with a closed fist punch than they could swinging with a sword depending on the dice roll. Will there be some sort of bonuses assessed for effective weapon usage? For Instance: Rocks, Sticks, handmade weapons- x2 Blunt weapons- x4 knives and bows- x6 (With some sort of range bonus for bows) Sword- x8 Firearms(?)- x10 (Range?)

Just something that I was mulling over after seeing the film. Well done, I thought. Got a little seasick with the shakey cam from the second row, but I understand that they don't want to show kids getting killed. We'll have no such qualms here I hope.  >:) /evil laugh
