I haven't tested the range very much the The Sony Gold PS4 headset works perfectly on PC, plug and play.

Sound quality is good it's comfortable and the battery lasts quite some time.

Players hunted Cult Leader

Players went to Brothel/Burlesque club, hung out with cross dresser, met up with old crime boss.

Players investigated murders.

Players tracked down cult leader.

Cult leader transformed into a monster.

Players lynched cult leader monster.

Players pinata'd him all over the wall.

One character got impregnated by crime boss, crime boss became vigilante.

The end.

I have a game I've been planning and the players are a group of capable murder hobos who have since settled down, they've moved into a wealthy city where the rich elite control the government almost openly.

The poverty stricken are abundant and exploited beyond belief in this city. They live in a giant ghetto that takes up several quarters within the city.

The players upon settling down decided they were going to fight the corruption to try to make things better for the poor in the city. They are mostly using the only tool they know to work in their previous lives. Violence. Well now one of them has gone missing and the group has stepped up their investigations to find the hidden oligarchy.

Well I'd like for the rich to push back by social and political engineering.

For instance one character owns a brothel/burlesque club and while prostitution is legal I plan to have them shut down for "violations of public health and safety" without a due inspection.

The setting is one of our own creation but the best way I can describe it is Victorian Black Powder Wild West Very Low Magic Gritty Fantasy.

If you guys have any ideas please let me know. If you have questions I will do what I can to clear stuff up.

Anecdote about an Anecdote.

So this will actually end up being two stories.

I just finished running a Two part scenario in Pathfinder using a low magic setting. I generally consider level 10 to be max level for my PC's and the Players were settled in at level 7. So they are pretty strong compared to most people in the world.

The team is trying to get an audience with their informant and have to get into the most exclusive party in the known world.

They managed to finagle invites but in order to do so one of their NPC allies had to go on a date with the man who's family owns the venue. This is complicated by the man being known for being "aggressive" with women.

Well push came to shove and he roughed her up after the party because she refused to sleep with him (she's not a prostitute!) I figured it'd get a strong reaction and probably some violence on my hands but what ended up happening has led me to believe that Domestic Violence seems to be some kind of incredible trigger that turned them all into psychopaths.

So they paid a little trip to his home. Not unexpected. He lives with his wealthy parents. One player proceeds to set his side and front doors on fire. Leaving only the back door accessible.

The family comes fleeing outside right into the waiting arms of what equates to The League of Extraordinary Lynch Mobs.

Two of them grab his parents, the other two savagely beat him. At one point one of the players tells the mother "You're going to watch, and if you try to look away, we are going to kill him." Then they turn on his father proclaiming "You raised this son of a bitch!" and proceed to break both his legs with a club.

Once they leave one of the players goes to the local crime syndicates whom he already has an in with, and spends every last gold piece he possess to have the man killed, and to ensure that it leaves an impression on his family.

So a masked man besets out upon the fleeing family disables their carriage and decapitates the son in front of his parents.

Shit got real. Local authorities were on the hunt but some political connections and cash transfer have relegated much of the search to "inactive".

Now for the Anecdoteception.

My coworkers are pretty cool. Neither of them game but they both enjoy a good tabletop story. One of them is a part time fantasy writer and the other's husband and her used to play white wolf or something years ago.

So I was recounting events to them while we were out to lunch on Friday, and a woman had sat down  at the table across from us. I hadn't noticed that she was sitting there not eating for most of my story. Apparently she had finished her food like 2-3 minutes into my story, and finally when I finished telling them, she stood up leaned forward toward our table and told me "That is FUCKING awesome!" I was super shocked but it made me giggle to think that someone who probably had never played a role playing game before, found a story about Tabletop Domestic Violence and it's consequences fascinating.

Thank you random L and L BBQ Patron, in a weird way your appreciation for my story validates my narrative aspirations.

I'm running a session for my long-standing Pathfinder group this Sunday. It'll be the first time we've gotten to play since about May. I use Paizo's standard Golarion setting, but right now the  PCs are on a spaceship, trying to get back from an alien planet. They're about to run into a seemingly-abandoned ship made out of a single colossal skull...

But it's actually a ship crewed by the undead, and the gigantic skull itself is a demilich. Good times in store, I suspect.

As I advocated for on Facebook. Engineer an encounter with a Vampire or cadre of Vampires. Something that is probably too tough for them normally, then they can feel the satisfaction of dusting  opening a porthole to let the sunshine in (la la la) and dust a bunch of Vampires with the power of the SUN.

Shadow of Mordor is everything I hoped it would be.


While this wikipedia article is woefully short, the documentary is great. John Dimaggio did a great job on this one, if you are a fan of voice acting like I am.

Especially if you envy the skill to high heaven.

I would highly recommend watching this at least once, maybe twice. It's on Netflix instant stream now as well so it's even better.

I might be bad at doing voices in my games but this really does give you some insight into how to come up with memorable voices.

Anyone looking at Sid Meiers Beyond Earth as a possible pickup?

It's looking pretty cool so far.

Mechanically Ridiculous: Zedd was a Druid Master of Many Forms who could turn into a Beholder and use all of their Eye Rays. It was silly, heinous and silly, nothing was a challenge at all.

Story line wise: I have one worth mentioning off the top of my head.

James Porter the Paladin with the Half Black Dragon Bard companion, James Porter won the Twisted Metal tournament and wished for a Dragon companion and was sent to a fantasy land.
