Actually, the problem with any western society (to varying degrees) is that people always look for the fault in others instead of thinking about what they could have done wrong first.
Might have been Regis, too, or Regis instead of Wulfgar. I didn't read the book, only a summary.
They tried Golden Goal and Silver Goal. It was terribly unpopular. Also, the strain put on the players would simply be irresponsible. Many of them have muscular problems after 120 minutes already.

Actually, while the Frenchman volunteered to die first (because of course he did), the German WOULD TAKE OVER THE PLANE!
I don't know what got into me there. Sorry. I mean the German would quickly convince the other two that they'd have to jump instead of him.
Also, demons just want to have fun.
As Kirth wrote, Bushmills is pretty good (although, to quote McNulty, it's protestant whiskey ;) ).
I'm not a fan of Jameson, either. Sometimes, it tastes like something died in it.
Tyrconnell Single Malt is decent.
The famous Tullamore Dew is very nice, especially the slightly stronger (and a bit more expensive) Black Label.
My favourite is Greenore Single Grain, though.
Next on my list are Green Spot and Redbreast, when I can afford them. I'd really like to try a Midleton Very Rare at some time in the future, but at prices over 100€ a bottle, that's not going to happen anytime soon.
Not to disparage the almighty Shemeska, but TSR only needed one book.
Dreamscarred Press's Tome of Channeling did something similar for 3.5.

That's not quite right. The PCs are recruited by a group that wants to make things better for the people of Westcrown by getting rid of the shadowplague, mainly. They don't want to overthrow House Thrune (even if Janiven tends to get carried away). The problem is that description and player's guide to The Bastards of Erebus are misleading.

The other ascendents did not encroach on his domain. Abrogail already has a lot of potential adherents, and with the Thrune's dogma of "Hell serves us!", she would be a direct threat.
Asmodeus would not have to act himself. He has enough proxies who could do the deed for him. However, Abrogail would have to a made an example of, with Asmodeus as the one responsible.

The Dresden Files Ghost Story. Now, by no means was it a bad book. I really enjoyed it. But after the frantic pace of Changes, it was a jarring change of pace. I think it could have been shortened to a novelette and then gone to Cold Days as the next novel.
I didn't like "Changes" that much because of its pace. Compared to the rest of the series, it was too fast. "Ghost Story" and "Cold Days" have their own problems (We have gods as regular players now? Talk about power creep.), but it wasn't pacing.

Didn't watch the original, but the remake is also badass.
Well, 'Darkvision' is still one of my favorite FR novels. The rest of his aren't nearly as good, though.
In before lock.

I just wanted to say that for me, there is nothing "narrative" about those cooldowns when it comes to non-magical characters. You can't narrate away someone somehow forgetting how to do a stunt for the fight or even for a whole day.
They are kind of pretty, in a totally terrifying way.
I did, for a short while (until I hit the level cap, and then I only started season 3). I didn't find the whole thing confusing. Almost all the main storyline missions require violence to solve, which is fine if you play a Klingon, but not when you're Starfleet. And while there is an exploration element, it becomes boring after a while, because you always get the same 5 or 6 random missions.
The Priest is an update of Unearthed Arcana's Cloistered Cleric variant class. That's why it gets the Knowledge domain. Unfortunately, Paizo's Cloistered Cleric archetype is pitiful in comparison.
I wouldn't go quite that far. There are far better shows on and on hiatus at the moment (Hannibal, Game of Thrones, Justified, The Walking Dead, Vikings, Red Widow, etc.). Even Grimm and Supernatural are better.
However, Arrow is quite fun. It shouldn't work, especially because of all the soapy bits, but it does.
I really like* those people who do what a friend of mine once referred to as "island hopping": driving faster than everyone else, overtaking other vehicles and/or changing lanes into the smallest gap, only because they think they get a speed advantage by that.
Speeding in broad daylight within city limits is basically senseless. You have to stop at the next traffic light anyway.
*no, I don't
My group typically makes use of the lower level pearls of power (4th and below) and usually as a recall for an ailment removal that having one prepared of just wasn't enough that day. As the DM I have my own house rule, that a given PC can only benefit from a given pearl/level once a day.
That is not a house rule. That's RAW.

Maybe Snowball wasn't meant to resurrect the Orb spells, but that's exactly what it does. This spell is now an automatic no-brainer for any arcane spellcasting build from here on out.
That's bull. I'd hazard the guess that most player have considerations beyond powergaming.

That wasn't the point.
So those that say the "Laugh track" annoys them, does that mean other comedies annoy you as well? I ask because all comedies use them even when taped in front of a live audience.
Comedy series that don't use laugh tracks:Community
Parks & Rec
Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23
Curb Your Enthusiasm
I can find a few more if you like.
