Um . . . I hate to break the bad news to you, but Bill won't return until late epic tier. Sorry, folks.
I'm from Alaska. About Fifty miles south of Ankorage there's a little fishing town, maybe you've heard of it, it's called fuck your momma.

Late Epic Tier? Christ Titties...I've gamed with so many passive aggressive monsters that I've never been in a game that's gone past maybe 10 levels.

Way to go, guys.

Me: (slowly raise eyebrow) "Destroy the Earth? That would be...illogical"
Vortex: "Yes...that...would be...highly...illogical."
Thanos: "Your Star Trek references bore me."

Bill did run a D&D game last summer that I played in and recorded. I'll get around to posting it eventually.

Also if you contributed to the Codex ransom, one of the preview games is Bill's first game of Don't Rest Your Head.

Not if you like me at all, you won't.
That game had the stink of unemployment and relationship heat-death all over it.


Meanwhile, back at the topic...

My words to Ross following the dinner party game (24, I think?) were that I didn't like caring about a game - an avocation - as much as playing with Mike was making me. The man is a textbook on applied logical fallacies. I realized that I was never getting anywhere near character motivations most nights because my mind was tossed off track every 7.3 seconds by hip-hop lyrics or 'Like a boss!' Then, when I tried to do something, I'd get shouted down, and any coherent criticism would just get steamrolled. Remember kids, no gaming is better than bad gaming, and the swirling vortex of Mike-suck was rolling right over the awesomesauce of Ross, Tom, Dan, and Cody.

Oh, and Zoidb-uh, er, Jason!

Then I started working overnights, and didn't want to have to leave the game in time to make it to work by 10.
However, I have left the vampire schedule behind, and am back in New World, and running another Don't Rest Your Head this weekend, and maybe getting aorund to some Dogs in the Vineyard whenever I get the ambition to write the author/publisher and get the copy I paid for in January :)

I know that many people have had a problem with Mike and his shenannigans, but I think it's funny because he is so ridiculous. I just can't comprehend some of his decisions and let's face it, liar or not, Mike had some really entertaining stories and I like to believe that they are all real because he is just that much man.


At any rate, it's good to have Bill back because he knows so much about the system and he plays interesting characters.

Billy Joe Bob Mcelroy and Truck-Hammerzilla are personal favorites of mine.

One of my long time players is a combat monster who doesn't talk in character much at all. Whenever I want him to open up during a game I look across the table and quote Dan: "Well, personally I want to hear what Truck-Hammerzilla has to say about this."

+1 for Bill.

Bill running Don't Rest Your Head was pure goodness...

You know, after listening to the last several episodes of the D&D campaign and having to listen to Mike spout off (to be fair his facts right/wrong ratio is about 50% in any given game) I have to say that I don't blame you Bill...

I think I've posted previously (in the show comments) about Mike's need to "dominate" play and how it can be distracting. I'm not knocking Mike, but I think there are times when he should just settle down and let EVERYONE enjoy the game...

Ross, don't be stingy with those APs and yes, I contributed my 20 spot to the ransom and I plan on contributing to Tom and Aaron's project. However, I want Bill on a few of the games that Aaron runs!

Hey Ross, there's a new fund raiser idea for you. We do a Walk-A-Thon but everybody sponsors RPPR players. Run a CoC game Tomb of Horrors style where each player gets a number of backup characters determined by the money donated to their name by fans. Last man standing wins.

I'm sure Ross and the others are willing to take whatever goods and services you can provide for their the blue book value. Do you have any idea how many orphan souls it takes to run a Zoom H2 for just one Actual Play?

I have one thing to say to you Cody: 5-GOD.
