Yeah, I would really like to see more in this storyline.

Spoiler:
And you are right that the sequence would make her sealing the gate odd, unless Will is now a key of sorts for getting from one side to the other. Or it could be that El banished herself to the upsidedown to simply block the gug from being able to use the rift, though it did seem to be able to pop out wherever it desired when it caught scent of blood, so not sure how that would work exactly. Of course this could all be addressed in a second season. ;)

Great show. Just finished the binge. ;) And yes, I agree Shinhakkaider's description is pretty well spot on. :)

Spoiler:
El did not really sacrifice herself in the "died for everyone" sense. She is back in the "upside down" and, I assume, sealed the gate by doing so. Otherwise why would the chief leave eggos in a drop spot?

I am really hoping this is not a "one season and done" thing. I can see one of two routes for the series.

Spoiler:
1) It will kick in an expanded "invasion" type scenario (the bit Will coughed up that went down the drain is on the "upside" rather than the "upside down" side, so who knows what that will do), Will will become able to hop between dimensions, and the story could be bringing El back (she is getting regular Eggos, after all) to help fight off the new threat.

2) The series will be a story-a-season concept, similar to American Horror Story.

Either would be good with me. This really was a top notch production (not to mention being able to relate to kids playing D&D in 1983 ... I was just a year or two older than the kids portrayed in the show then and had been playing for almost 6 years at that point).

The main lesson you should pull from this debacle of a game is just because you can do something does not mean you should do something. Flooding the table with summons (and let's not quibble over semantics, summon, call, etc are still the same basic thing with variation on what the critter can do), to the point your controlled units out number the entire party falls squarely in the should not do category.

You cannot win the game. And even if it were possible to "win", you sure as hell would not be able to do so by pissing off the rest of the players.

So I drove around and could not see a cause, though I did see a power company truck (and the guy said it would be another 3-4 hours ... Argh!). So I am now at a bar grabbing a drink and a bite.

I guess it does not count as going to a bat solo if you know the bartender, right? ;)

Forgot about the grue threat, but I do have matches, so I should be OK.

Will probably pick up a battery powered laters tomorrow (only place open right now with that kind of thing would be Walmart).

It is too early to sleep (and getting warm inside as well since the ceiling fans are just sitting there not spinning).

Might hop in the car and drive the area to see if I can spot the cause of this outage (most likely someone hopped a curb and hit a relay box or some such).

Great but short lived series, with the best fitting cliff hanger ending to a single season series ever.

A point regarding alignment: A good character will not steal. A neutral or evil character will not steal from the party he's in, because doing so is not in his best interests. Unless he's planning on leaving the party immediately.

OTOH, a kleptomaniac can't help himself, whatever his alignment. :-)

Chaotic good gets equated with Robin Hood ... I believe there was theft involved in the Robin Hood tales. ;)

Alignment really does not apply, nor should it. What does apply is what the players and GM are comfortable with re: play style. If players are fine with PCs having light fingers, that's fine, as long as it is understood OOC that it will be occurring and IC it is handled appropriately. Two of the groups I play with have no issue with it, but we also don't let it get out of hand. Two other groups prefer to avoid the potential issues. End result is all groups are a blast to play with due to clear communication of player expectations of what will be acceptable within the group.

Bottom line is any gaming group should make clear among all participants the expectations of player and PC behavior. Failure to do so will inevitably lead to conflict that will either be overcome or lead to one or more folks leaving the group.

No real goal in mind, just some fiction riffs so far (that being a 15 minute writing freestyle based off an image as a catalyst).

A little backstory. I have several domains that I have not been doing anything with and figured what the hell, I will put one of them to use. The site itself is basic (there is still plenty of functionality and design work I want to put into place), but instead of waiting for the site to be "perfect" (including figuring out what in the heck I want it to ultimately look like) before putting anything up, I decided this week to go ahead and start doing a riff a day to get into the habit of daily writing.

So, if anyone has a few minutes to spare (or waste, I make no guarantees as to how you will feel if you check it out), you can delve into the riffs at visionsofamadman.com. I welcome any feedback folks may want to give (and I may or may not respond to comments, but I will read them all).

If you check it out, thanks. If not, well, then, thanks? I guess? ;)

On behalf of the folks who put his wonderful magazine together (that would be the folks who make up the Wayfinder staff and volunteers as well as all the artists and authors without whom we would have a very short magazine), quite welcome. :)

Seriously though, many thanks to everyone who submitted material to this issue. There is some really good stuff between these covers. And many thanks to the editors/proofreaders (because editing and proofreading are not a strong portion of my skill set). Also to Garrett who helps shoulder the layout load in a serious way. And Tim and Paris, because, you know, you guys rock.

And if you download this, please take a moment to review it after you have taken in all this free goodness. Let the folks who created this material know how much you liked it.

Varangian guard. They were mercenaries of Scandinavian origin initially, though later Anglo-Saxons also filled the ranks. They were imperial guards, loyal to the Emporer, and trusted moreso than Byzantine soldiers for that position, and we're apparently terrors on the battlefield. When an Emporer died, they would take from the treasury all they could carry.

Pretty solid basis for the Ulfen guard.

Edit: as far as the "look at the names" bit, not really sure what is meant.

Oh, now the Hao Jin Tapestry would be a cool one. Considering it has bits and pieces from all over Golarion in it folks would be able to do almost anything. And, since it also has parts of Golarion from different time periods as well, iirc, then you could have some interesting divergent timeline concepts as well.

Ooooooo ... another possibility. The sensate who birthed the cluster (blanking on the character name ... whoever Daryl Hannah is playing) used drugs to block Whispers ... maybe Riley's drug use will block Whispers from being able to link to her ... and maybe she can pass that on to others when needed. Could help keep Will from having to off himself to protect the cluster.

considering the slow burn feel season one had, I am wondering if Riley's true potential simply has not been revealed yet.

Ummm ... no. The term "sensate" dates back to the 15th century, so not sure how it would have been "stolen". There really is no correlation between the Society of Sensation in Planescape and the show, other that the focus on sensation. Both the show and the faction in Planescape made use of an appropriate term to embody the theme of the show/faction.

I have offered in the past to reply to those who did not make it in, and provide feedback as to why, if I am asked to by the author. The problem becomes that many who get that feedback.....well, they don't take it very well. As a result, it leaves me soured to wanting to continue with feedback. I do want to try and figure out a way to give feedback, though....just without the arguments and insults.

One other thing for folks to keep in mind when making submissions (and when requesting feedback) is that while Wayfinder is a fan created product, we do treat it as any commercial product when it comes to dealing with article selection, editing, and layout.

If you request feedback and it is given, before you click that send button in reply, think to yourself "if this was a submission to a commercial product do I really want to send this to the person who will determine if my work gets accepted for this and future projects and, more importantly, determines if I get paid for my creation?" If you answer "yes" and send back an insulting or condescending reply, then freelance work (of any type, not just writing RPG material) is probably not your best choice of career move.
