Colony Of Birchmen by Mastodon

Heard the new song yet?

Not until you posted the link. I'm getting a weird, almost hair metal vibe from it. I'm a bit skeptical about the upcoming album, considering how disappointed I was by their last album. 'The Hunter' had a couple of good tracks (for example), but felt oddly disjointed to me, and really just didn't feel like a Mastodon album. I applaud them for changing direction, but I'm still not sure if it's working for them.

Thirding this. I do play characters of other alignments... but not very well.

Oh, man, is this true for me. I suck at being a bad guy; I suck so, terribly much.

Me: "Hi! I'm a chaotic evil murder-mage!"

GM: "Okay, so...

This is me every single time I attempt to play an evil character. I'M NOT ALONE ANYMORE!

One of my players (to be fair, kind of a newbie) was upset over the fact that she never hit anything or made any of her saves during one of my adventures. I found it a little odd, but told her that sometimes games just go that way due to the randomness of the die. Shortly before the session concluded, I glanced over in her direction and saw that she had been making all of her rolls with a d12 instead of a d20.

This is also the same player that tried to negotiate with an insane black dragon and got another party member killed.

Only in Syracuse, NY can you get 80-degree weather, a thunderstorm, and snow, all in a 24-hour period. Seriously, f$%+ this town.

Another point: I've seen a lot of people mention medication for clinical depression. While it works for a lot of people and is certainly worth trying, SSRI-type antidepressants can also really mess you up if you're not careful.

I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder when I was around ten years old (the diagnosis was revised to 'major depression with psychotic features' a little over a decade later). Since this was the '90s, people hadn't started taking into account what kinds of long-term effects SSRIs and other drugs had on people, especially kids. I hopped from drug to drug and therapist to therapist until my early twenties--nothing worked. In the end, I ended up with a permanent chemical dependency (which I've been told may contribute to my symptoms being worse the longer I'm off the medication), as well as some minor peripheral nerve damage. I've been off the medications for about two years, and don't feel any different than I did when I was on them, other than the fact that I started smoking to ease the withdrawal symptoms.

In other words, just be careful. Medication should be a last resort. If it works for you, awesome, but if it doesn't, stop taking it.

Hyperbole and a Half - Adventures in Depression

I recommend that link to everyone, by the way. It's a very good description of Major Depressive Disorder from the inside.

Seconded. I've also found that Spoon Theory also applies very well, even though it was originally invented to explain life with lupus and other chronic pain/fatigue syndromes.

You got me. I'm a three-thousand-year-old vampire.

So Anne Rice, Bram Stoker, and Stephenie Meyer really piss you off, I bet.

Nah, they're just run-of-the-mill mortals. Blink, and you miss them.

Also, though I'm not *listening* to it right now, my second demo EP just dropped this morning. Both of them sound like s&$*. Very punk rock.

Deck of Many Things. Never give your players a Deck of Many Things. Ever. Just don't.

Also, a friend of mine let one of the PCs in his game have the Wabbajack from the Elder Scrolls games.

For chaoseffect only, in an attempt to prevent bias on the part of other survey-takers:

Spoiler:
For the questions involving calling the police, what if I chose not to call the police because I believed that calling the police would exacerbate the situation, and instead chose to peacefully confront the assailant myself?

Nothing can make snow fun. It's impossible. And when you combine snow with a lack of jobs and high taxes, then, well...

Just made my first dollar from playing music. Literally. Someone just paid me a dollar to download my free demo EP off of Bandcamp.com.

Some acquaintances of mine, Pitchfork-darlings-of-the-month Perfect Pu*sy, recently shot a music video for their first single, "I," and I got to be in the crowd. Check it out here, and see a bunch of extreme close-ups of the back of my head. Unfortunately, they didn't keep the take of someone throwing me into the drum kit and spraying the drummer with blood.
