I just wanted to thank everyone again for putting on the live recording at gencon and the game design workshop panel. My birthday was that saturday and getting to sit in on those and getting that base raiders proof copy was a great present for me. It was a blast!

Oh sure, Ross, fabricate a listener email to win a disagreement on the boards....


edit: just to be clear here, I'm trying to be sarcastic in an awkward situation.
Ross wouldn't do that, he's a published author like 3 times over. He doesn't write anything that he isn't getting paid to write. I bet he doesn't even post on the forums unless hes being paid to do it. I bet when he cashes checks at the bank he gets even more money from them for writing his name. I'm sure someone else might have fabricated this letter for him though. I mean he's a published author, of course people want to show off writing skills to him.

So I stopped having fun with games when my friend DMs a long while ago. So instead I force my own fun into the game.

My character is a halfling cowboy who grapples and takes down giants. But so last night, we were one a boat. And 3 of us wanted to catch griffins for mounts. So we loaded up this giant ballista, that would launch a bolt that would throw a net onto the thing. But right before they launched it, my character ran up the ballista onto the bolt and rode it into the air. They shot badly so it was short. And well so I tried using my ability to restrain targets from a distance but I missed that too. So here I am, on this bolt with a rope attached to it, 160 feet in the air, falling. My character smacked right into the water and lost half his health. The best part is, he's got this ability called Diehard, so even then he's below 0 hp he'd be able to get right back up without going unconscious. so even if I had gotten max damage on that fall it would have been right above death for me and I would have got up and swam back to the boat. My character then proceeded to drink the pain away for the next 2 nights.

I have yet to listen to the latest podcast yet. Haven't had much podcast time. BUT And not to derail the thread, but when I first listened to Mike, I thought he was just a really hickish white guy who I imagined wore a red bandanna on his head. Apparently I"m bad at paying attention to podcasts for hours on end, especially when I"m doing other things at the same time. Like play Halo, or read text books. I like how short the normal podcasts are. Well at least they seem short compared to the actual plays. I started listening to this pretty late and so catching up on APs and the normal podcasts means a lot of hours in my room with Ross, Tom and the whole gang rabblerousing in my speakers.

See that was a mysterious introduction, it makes people wonder. People are like "Wow, that was mysterious, it makes me wonder."

Yeah I've talked to people about this incident a few times since it came out. It makes me ashamed to come from Wisconsin.

I never play anything that's combat efficient. I usually end up with a character with good social skills, primarily bluff skills. It's always been my dream to bluff a major bad guy into thinking he was his own enemy. I never get to because of the group I play with, but yeah, I would love to do so. And even better if they are mysterious about themselves. Like I had a character who went by his own name so no one knew his name or past. And another was a shape shifter that went around as a minotaur. Wow, I play a lot of lying addicts. They need to see counseling or something.

Well except my recent character, Toka Razorshell is a combat efficient brawling cowboy. If it were worth the feat, I'd multiclass him to get magic missile as an encounter power so he had a gun.

So I think I may have introduced my characters to a Lex Luthor x10.

I'm running a setting for D&D where religion is pretty scarce. And this kobold sitting in this bar with 6 dragon born starts giving the cleric of the group crap for being religious. And At first it was just a back and forth of backhanded comments against each other when the cleric insulted the kobold's mother. Instantly he invited the cleric back to his boat, and had the dragonborns grab his arms and escort him. instead they weaved around and ended up in an alley way where two of the dragonborns put on guard armor and each watched the ends of the alleyway. They start gang beating the cleric, and the rst of the group who was following behind them arrived and a battle ensued. At the end of the battle the two with guard armor on were dead, and the cleric had fully healed himself. Guards arrived and the PCs tried explaining the situation, but with guards dead and the cleric fully healed, it's hard to believe that the kobold and gang tried to do what the cleric claimed. So they get arrested, weapons were confiscated, and then while in the cells they see the kobold walk by as he's about to leave the station, and he just turns to them and grins as he walks out. Then they all get told he is a high up noble in the towna nd he cleared everything up and passed the blame on some other people so the group could go free. They leave and then as they are already out and about in town they realized they never got their weapons back. One PC goes back to ask the guards for their weapons back, but just to get told the kobold took everything with him as payment for getting them out of jail.

So now the half of the party that was lawful good got an alignment shift as they prepared to assassinate him during the night. Little do they know that the captain of the guard is at his boat this night to personally scold the kobold noble about the trouble he's causing. (the two were adventurers together in the past)

In a similar vein of "all the good ideas are taken," I'm running a M&M campaign for my group.  My group mostly consists of comic book nerds, and I am not, which leads me to situations where I think I've made a unique villain and someone will spout off an actual character with the same abilities.  It doesn't always happen, but probably around 80%.
I"m trying to start a M&M game for my group, and when people make characters I keep just telling them who their character is almost exactly like.

One player is a black Dr. Manhattan and another is if Yusuke was apart of the MiB and the MiB were really the lantern corps.

I don't even know how to play Monsters and I"m considering buying this book. Well in a few months I might. Right now I"m poor.

Yeah, It's not like officially sponsored by anyone, so it's not an official RPG. It is in beta right now.

The books can handily be found here:

General Chaos / Re: Everyone Betrays Me!: The Room Tribute Thread

I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate this movie.  just don't understand how you can all love it so much. I first saw it on Adult Swim when instead of my normal saturday night anime, they played this. Over, and over, and over again. Drove m crazy. But I kept it on thinking they would play my shows, but they did not.

Why do you hate this movie? Please explain.
(Keep in mind I haven't seen it in forever so I"m doing the best with what I can) The characters are so unlikable to me. And most of the writing is bad, like they wrote a world where everyone openly has some sort of disorder, and they all think nothing of it (with Tommy's character I think I heard that he sort of does have one? But it's not really explained in the movie and so he just comes off as this 100% socially accepted guy that everyone loves, regardless of his what I think come off as obvious issues.) It also feels like the movie drags on for a long time. I'm sure that's what they might have been going for, with a movie entitled The Room, it's not too hard to guess they might being trying to go for a claustrophobic(I think that's the term I'm looking for) type feeling. Reminds me a lot of this story I read in english about this yellow room. Something to do with the girl going insane from being in it for a long time. But it isn't too relevant. But I just hate the feeling it gives off. I also feel like the plot changed a lot fast. Well I mean like the couple were perfectly fine and out of no where Lisa just does a 180 and goes batshit insane, causing Tommy to go batshit insane.

I guess I just can't seem to appreciate it as a bad movie as much as you guys can, I am unable to humor it, ultimately learning to love it for what it is. I just had a way different experience watching that movie.
