Thanks for pointing the way to "The IT Crowd" (working my way through the pod casts.) I have been laughing my ass off all night.

Great Scott!

Are you talking about the British sit come of the same name starring Chris O'Dowd?
I can't think of anything worth putting here, so I decided not to have anything of consequence.

Oh yes.  I have all three seasons.  It's brilliant.  You might also try the series Black Books.  Not as many episodes, but Irish comedian Dylan Moran stars.  He and the rest of the cast are excellent.

Thanks, I will check those out post haste!
I love the IT crowd. I always go back to it after every 6 months or so, can't go too long without re-watching it. Think my favorite episode is season 2 episode 1 believe where they go to the gay musical "Gay"

Again, by far my favorite!

Also I tried Black Books, and unfortunately for my roommate I tried it while he happened to be sleeping. I couldn't stop laughing that I woke him up. Twice.

It is another great British sitcom

My favorite cameo character from Black Books.

You've been sucked out of the airlock into the black. Roll all the dice on the table for damage.

Tom, I ran my SWSE adaption of Divine Fire again for a different group of friends over vent last night.  And once again I want to thank you for giving me material that induces nightmares in players.  Right about the time they found barracks full of dead frozen storm troopers cracked up like lobsters and de-boned they started to get antsy.  Then I would randomly drop people into private chat channels and play the sound of people whispering.  And then of course there was the comatose trooper in the med-bay they had to feed to the Anzati researcher to gain his help figuring out what went wrong in the facility.

Thank you for giving my players nightmares.

I'm curious, where did the name Grunvald (no clue if that was spelled correctly) come from? does it have any significance? I recall seeing it somewhere earlier this week and it sparked this curiosity.
Liquid Water?

Grunevald.

No source really.  Just needed an Old World sounding Germanic name.
