Why I Love Tom Church
« on: June 24, 2009, 06:02:20 PM »
  • I was listening to the Wushu Dodgeball AP while I mowed the lawn last week.  Cody, as Martin Van Buren, was scrambling for a period-appropriate insult to hurl at his initial nemesis, Curtis.  Tom thoughtfully provides, "Federalist!"
  • In New World #8, Tom's inner voice channels George Carlin: "Go take a shit on the salad bar at Wendy's!"

There's more to come.  It's been a rough day, and my brain doesn't want to work anymore.
I didn't come here to win. I came to make friends.

1) He has the same name as one of my friends
2) Sense of humor uhm well let us just say I enjoy it thouroughly.
3) Action GAMES!
4) Uhm his Yakuza Character? Crazy Shit!
5) He delivers
6) He frustrates Ross
7) He doesn't really pussyfoot around
8) Crystal Pepsi
9) Gargoyles!
10) Shy and cute
11) DBZ Game

Yeah, I could fill a lamb's-blood-stained black leather diary with Tom's virtues.
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

I like that virtually whatever Ross bring up, Tom has either played something like it or knows someone who has.

I agree, Tom is awesome. Listening to Ross and Tom is like listening to Abbott and Costello. Ya gotta love Tom's "Costello" to Ross' "Abbott".

I WANT more of Ross' radio announcer voice just to hear Tom rail against him for it!!!

I love Tom Church because we had almost a psychic connection when playing CoC games and often it was an evil psychic connection.

I love Tom Church because:

1) He is a wealth of practical game knowledge. I have absolutely no doubt that my games have improved because of Tom's experience and advice.

2) He is a great Role-player. Listening to the many and varied Actual Plays leaves me with the distinct impression that Tom is exactly my favorite kind of Player; He really gets into his character, and stays in-character, and he is an active player, not content to sit back and let the others come up with the ideas. Tom keeps the game moving forward.

3) He has great taste. Not only in games, but in music (sorry, Ross: Reverend Horton Heat beats techno 7 days a week and twice on Sunday), comedy, and pop culture.

4) He is funny as hell.

Overall, Tom is exactly the kind of guy I'd like to hang out with.

I'd love to hear some actual plays with Tom as GM. How about it, Tom?

Wait, wait, wait... you mean Tom isn't an evil baby eater? When did this change?

Well he can be an evil baby eater but he can also be the paladin with a heart of gold

I was worried Tom posting in a thread about how much we love Tom may be a little gauche,  but what do you know, it was just crude, hilarious and so very Tom.

I add a 3rd reason to my list, that last post
