DO NOT WATCH BUBBLEGUM CRISIS 2040.

If there's a bubblegum crisis, is it because they're all out of bubblegum?

The book could basically also be titled "Elves, Sex, and Making Fun of Paladins".

Elves, sex, and making fun of paladins? Is this a book, or is it the "gamer talk" section of the forums?

Whoever built the house that I just spent five days working on is an idiot, or possibly allergic to straight lines. After ripping out two walls and putting up some new drywall, I noticed that all of my work looked crooked. After some close examination, I realized that, in fact, my work was the only thing straight about the whole damn basement. I had to re-do half the patch job so that it matched the crookedness of everything else. Also, I noticed that the baseboard molding in most of the house was only nailed up on the ends. F#+&ing amateurs.
Is this going to be a structural issue at any point later?

Nope, the whole thing is solid as a rock. Everything's just in varying degrees of off-kilter-ness.

Drywall's done. Mostly. Very hung over. Still need to put sealant on 500 square feet of decking before I can head home.

Hanging drywall is not how I generally like to spend my Friday nights. But here I am.

Client: "How much would you charge for designing a logo for my band?"
Me: "Well... it looks like maybe two hours worth of work, so maybe $30 or $40?"
Client: "Sounds cool. I'll send you a money order. It'll be there in a week or something."

Something tells me this isn't going to end well.

Interesting observation from five minutes ago: Marlboro Black Menthols combined with Angry Orchard hard cider tastes exactly like balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. I'm OK with this.

Just got back from playing a show. The band I play in, Operation Hennessey, was first on the bill, followed by Judge Gazza, Anormous Jonsun, Insufficient Funds, and Dérive.

My roommate is an interesting person. Usually, he just leaves his phone in the shower, or his TV remote in the fridge. Today, though, there was a copy of "Catcher in the Rye" in the sink.

Game premise: outlaws on the border of two warring countries, caught in the middle, trying to survive and save people from being trampled by the two factions. Dark, gritty, half special forces combat stuff, half infiltration/espionage.

The group is a bunch of grim and gritty soldier types that would have been right at home in a Black Company novel.

And then there's Rob Boss, the painter bard.

He had a kobold slave with an easel strapped to it's back. Whenever combat would start Rob would break out his brushes to "capture the essence of our struggle." He'd give tactical advice (inspire courage) in the form of artistic direction. "Cheat the Orc towards me so I can see it's snarl!" "Go to the other side of that lion, it makes for better framing." "Get out of the way, you're blocking the sightlines!"

He would occasionally do useful things with Marvelous Pigments and/or Summon spells that would "bring his paintings to life."

Once when his easel was sundered he went totally b&#~~#* on the ettin that broke it (he was carrying around 5 Elemental Gems that we didn't even know about, and he broke them all, summoning 5 "watercolor elementals" screaming about how he was going to "paint over that stupid mistake!")

He has played to the hilt, and in the right game would have been hilarious.

In this one, he killed the game in 6 sessions.

I... I want to make this character. I need to play this character. Yeah.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Think of it this way: at least they weren't playing a CG dark elf ranger with twin scimitars.

I haven't had any grievously mechanically inept characters but... here's the first character who came to mind when I read the title of this thread:

A summoner|alchemist in a gestalt game who introduced his character by entering the scene with his catgirl eidolon on a leash. And then was surprised and befuddled when the entire party and a few nearby NPCs reacted badly.

Yeah.

So much nope.

I like the occasional evil character and NPC. I sometimes tell players that just because you are evil doesn't mean you don't:

1. want to save the world (you are in it after all)

2. have friends you would support and fight for

3. have family that you would revenge if harmed

4. have ambitions other than bloodshed and betrayal

5. want to do good, if only for purely selfish reasons

6. channel your desire to do evil into socially acceptable activities like bounty hunting, the military, law enforcement, politics, mercenary work, etc.

This pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter. Character motivations trump alignment, as was evidenced in my glorious clusterf$@! of an Age of Worms campaign (which had the two core members of the party, a CN rogue and a CG bard, teaming up with a LE sorcerer, a werewolf, a lich, and an evil black dragon to save the world).

Pizza:
I used to work at a Papa John's Pizza right next to Syracuse University. The neighborhood had a lot of students from overseas, particularly India and Pakistan, and we noticed that a lot of them would always order the same pizza, which we (somewhat insensitively) dubbed the New Delhi Special. At first, the ingredients didn't seem to make any sense, but then we tried it and realized that some god among men had figured out how to make s%~@ty Papa John's pizzas taste like damned good Indian curry. Now, any time I eat there, I order it, and then enjoy the look of surprise on the delivery driver's face when he finds out I'm a white guy.

The New Delhi Special:
- red sauce
- light cheese
- green peppers
- yellow (banana) peppers
- jalapeño peppers
- chicken
- onions
- pineapple
- cinnamon sugar
- crushed red pepper

No joke, it's f~@$ing delicious.
