Ok here. Is a fun one. Favorite Comic Book series, hero/villain, and storyline.

Mine is Sandman by DC/Vertigo
Death is my favorite hero or ally
I enjoyed Tale of a thousand Cats storyline and the son of The Sandman storyline.

As for favorite villain I would have to say The Joker. I always loved him.

Also if someone steals a Tesla electric car is it called an Edison now?


So background, at 25 I unlocked the rare achievement of hereditary allergy to alcohol. (Weird I know but 7% of allergies develop late in life and happened to my dad around the same age). So my coworkers like to bother me about it a lot. They do things like buy profiteroles (belgian alcoholic cream and chocolate pastries) in the staff room. Invite folks out to drinks and then ask if I want to come anyway. They don't understand how someone can live without alcohol been doing it for 7 years now. It's my normal and somedays their teasing just drives me a bit crazy.


I took the plunge and bought myself a set of gator jawbone dice. No one is going to be able to ever touch them ever!!!!! But they are going to be a suitable GM dice set mwahahahaha.


WE have all been gathered here today for one reason. Ladies and gentleman........ how do we kill superman?!!!??!!!


So glad I am off for 2 weeks. Anxiety has been a bit unreasonable lately trying to whip that demon back into it's cage where it belongs. But I have been sleeping better insomnia is gone and I am not sleeping 12 hours a day from medication side effects either. I need to find some time traveler from stopping the car crash when I was 19 that resulted in my traumatic brain injury but, until then the ongoing battle with the demon inside shall continue.

Sorry guys. I follow the thread regularly. I am a gay married man. And I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder for going on 14 years now from a traumatic brain injury. (I should count myself lucky thats really all the aftereffects I got). Needless to say I am the mentally ill everyone is blaming. I have huge anxiety attacks that yes can make me aggressive, but no I have never hurt someone else while having them. Myself maybe but not someone else. Would I in the depths of my despair grab a gun and shoot a bunch of people who hate me? NEVER!!!! I may not like said people and they may eventually have part in my death by helping cause an anxiety attack that results in a heart attack or stroke. Have I had dark thoughts at my worst that I wish they would be harmed? I can admit that but I would never go through with it. The fact is most mentally ill people are much more likely to be victimized (as I have) or harm themselves. Now saying that I know my triggers and how to avoid getting more upset. I am not going to read anymore of the pro gun lobby explain this away, nor am I going to listen to people blame other marginalised groups and try and say it was anything but anti-LGBT hate. I am going to have to take a break for my own health. I wish you all the best. and I will look for charities to donate to help the Orlando families. (Don't pray as an atheist but I have to do something). I will be back to the thread after this has passed maybe in a few weeks....


James I'm a GM and I discourage my PCs from picking certain monster races as PCs by telling them that society is likely to take issue with them. For example Sure you might be a nice drow but all the drow that have been heard of have been demon worshipping psychopaths. You enter that village and you're going to attract the attention of the guards. Who are constantly going to watch your every move at best and try and kill you at worst. I mean in a fantasy setting people generally don't care if your a good troll if every other troll they've heard of eats people. Is this fair?

Meh I though it'd be bigger


Hey James. I am avowed skeptic, but I find this has been somewhat limiting for my gamemastering and storytelling. So I enjoy collecting creepy urban legends and picking the brain of believers to get a better sense of how to tell the story. I need to get into different character mindsets in game. So as a believer in bigfoot do you mind if I pick your brain on some bigfoot views and stories? I promise to not be picky mean or derisive about it all. So feel free to ignore the following questions if you want
1) Bigfoot
a) Any cool urban legend or local stories from your childhood you can share? and if so please do.
2) Skunkape
a) In your view is it bigfoot or a bigfoot relative or regional variant like the difference between the black Rhino and the western black rhino.
3) Appalachian wildman
a) Is it bigfoot? Or is it again a bigfoot relative or regional difference. Keep in the mind the appalachian wildman is known to be very aggressive.
4) Sasquatch
a) Is it bigfoot? Sasquatch are reported mostly in northern Canada in the vast tracts of boreal forest very scarcely populated by anyone, They are known to wreck hunting cabins, and through large rocks at said cabins when people are there.
5) Yeti
a) Is it bigfoot? or a relative? Or is it just a regional variant? Yeti is mostly only reported in the hindu Kush and the around the himalayas.
6) Gigantopithicus Blacki
a) Is it the genetic precursor to bigfoot? Dying out 100, 000 years ago in what is now vietnam, China, and India, Blacki was over 9ft tall looked like a cross between a human and a orangutan, with darkish fur. Reported to be still alive by some rural natives of southern asia, and some saying it isn't blacki but something just as tall and more upright. Is it bigfoot of southern asia.

Keep in mind I am only interested in how you view and think about these things.

My anxiety is peeking today. Driving me crazy. I am cisgendered married gay man. But all these anti transgender bathroom bills filling my newsfeed on facebook is killing me. Coming from people who should know better. Yes I know I should unfriend/block these people, but if I don't make a stand and have these conversations with people who will? I mean I see some gay friends sitting back and not standing up for the trans community while the focus isn't on us for a change. *Sigh* It makes me sad and frustrated. There is no difference between me and my husband and my transgendered friend (Dan) *name changed for safety* and his husband, and my friend Lisa and her husband. No difference whatsoever you attack one you attack all. UGhhhhhhhI need to take a beta blocker today just to have these conversations that need to be had.


So I am working on a new adventure location. A place I call the inverted sea. A spot in the ocean where for over 100 leagues the water gets unnaturally clear and glows a pale blue green. Reefs appear in the sky along with all manner of wildlife swimming freely in the air. The sky is a permanent night with visible stars and moon, and at the seas centre a great sea elf city of unimaginable beauty. Boats who enter this area can sail into the sky without difficulty. Where is the best place to put this location on Golarion in your opinion James? I wish to use it as a big part of a custom campaign.

*Sigh* Ended up killing off another PC last night. Nearly killed the entire party. The party are truly scared of demons now though :P They hammered dretch and Abrikandilus but Babaus and Nabasus scare the s*@@ out of them now lol
Yeah that DR and SR can really mess with a party

They have cold iron weapons so the DR wasn't the issue. The fact the Nabasu successfully managed to summon a second Nabasu. And little known fact Nabasus have sneak attack and 2 of the bastards going at a person with sneak attack was really brutal :(

First week in August we are back to Scotland for familial obligations. Alex and I will be enjoying some time at some local castles, as well as seeing some of Alexs family.

Just sore. Not too bad though.

No walk in clinics nearby, and husband is in Australia for another 2 weeks. I'll honestly be fine my head doesn't hurt at all. Just tired as it is 1am here.


Came afterwards. Got really warm and dizzy, and then almost passed out while I was on the floor. Feeling better now. Still haven't assessed injuries. Frankly hoping if I ignore they will go away.


So I just fell down the stairs. I was tired after work and fell from the top of so me steep stairs and I hurt my knee and my calf somehow. Afraid to look now just laid there for 45 minutes and felt so stupid and had the weirdest dizzy spell and nearly passed out. I am so stupid......

That sounds like epic Lego pain

Yes but Patrick some pain can be pleasure.

It says both shipped and payment method declined on my subscription page and no message for pending order and no option to retry the payment method. So I am thoroughly confused.

I have a problem I just spent another $400 on Dwarven forge products.............
I would say come up north a couple of hours.... but that'd be way too heavy an amount of terrain.

I would even love to have another player in my Potton group. (All newbies) We may just have to arrange a gaming weekends thing or something. Maybe a quarterly event where we get UK (non wacko) folks together for big adventures.

It's a few years younger than my parents...
my parents are 78 and 70, time is ticking, I hope my boy has some more years with his grandparents

I understand that man. Alex and I have been thinking of adopting in the next few years but my parents are both back in North America in their mid 50's unlikely to travel much. And Alexs mom is already gone, and his dad doesn't even own a passport.


So a buddy wants to play a Ulfen wizard with a puffin familiar. Do you think it is acceptable to just use the raven stats and give it a +3 swim check (seabird that spends most of its time on the water)?


So the players did something royally stupid. There are now facing a cr 9 Demon and a Cr 7 cleric at the same time and the 4 PCs are level 6 Mythic 1.......... Next week PC deaths are imminent.


Awesome detail on the imp. I think Erik has taken advice well from folks I remember when the line first started and the suggestions given and he has taken them all to heart.


No game night tonight. So doing some video gaming.


And no work tomorrow. But lots of game prep to do before tomorrow night.


So tired. Such a long work day.


Hey James I have a few fun questions.
1) What's the creepiest thing that has ever happened to you?
2) WHat movie has truly scared or creeped you out?
3) What book scared you the most?
4) As a believer in bigfoot have you ever had a glimpse of the fellow?
5) Whats the best local myth or Urban Legend from where you grew up?


Ok James here is a cool series of questions. Can you name the most traumatic/unexpected deaths of a character for you personally in.
1) A book
2) A Movie
3) A TV series.


Very happy with my purchse from Dwarven forge. Only got like 4 guildings but more than enough streets. Going to buy more Buildings here in April.
