Thank you very much.
I threw the logical bit in there only because I didn't want the answer to simply be it's a fantasy game. There are many settings I dig that aren't scientifically sound, but there is a reason to how the world works.
I have a question about the fluff in the product summary.
Is there any explanation how there is life on this planet?
Without the sun plants would die, which would mean herbivores would die out, then carnivores. There would be very little oxygen.
Then there is temperature. Now the warmth of the planet's core could keep the deep oceans warm for thousands of years, but the surface of the world would freeze over quickly.
I know it's a fantasy game, but I am still logical person.
Ahh Conan the might very well be CN at it's best.
I like Chaotic Neutral quite a lot actually.
I think some people may take the "chaotic" in Chaotic Neutral too far. I have never heard of Chaotic Good character being called completely random or insane, and they are just as chaotic as a Chaotic Neutral character.
And of course Neutral doesn't mean random, it could be one who looks at both a sides or more Buddhist that there is no side to choose.
I think it's weird that CN is pigeonholed as the pick the alignment if you want to be crazy and mess with the party of course that should be nipped in the bud.
I would put some of great movie characters as CN, The Man with No Name, Inigo Montoya, and I think the perfect answer Ash from Evil Dead.
Three characters that could plan, follow through on the plan with action, and weren't insane.
They weren't really good, all though their actions helped people. They weren't really evil, all though they each did what best served their needs not considering the cost. Yet, each is dramatically different.
So if you have a player that wants to play CN so he can be a jerk have him extrapolate more on what type of neutral he is aiming for.
Because bat guano insane, is just that. If you could ask a insane character what alignment they are they would give an answer like banana.
Wow that's the dumbest thing I have ever heard. I could understand why you didn't last long there.
I would be very interested in an actual play podcast.
I think I'm going to go with the Class & Stats don't really matter.
It is more what kind of characters are in the party.
There is a 2E campaign of infamy among my friends, where the Ranger in our group kept trying to be the leader. Here is a snippet.
The rest of the group consisted of a Psionic, Paladin, and a Wizard. The ranger kept messing up rolls and such so during the course of the game the group consider him rather incompetent. When the group would huddle for a plan, the Ranger would just go do what he thought was right without conferring.
Now I will give credit to the Player. He had envisioned Aragorn with the Ranger and the Ranger believed he should be the leader, but gameplay had been his enemy. He had fumbled in nearly every encounter tripping over his own feet or placing an arrow in an ally (yeah our DM was that cruel). During a Dungeon crawl the Ranger convinced us which way to go and led us into Ogre's lair. By this time The Wizard became so infuriated with the incompetence he picked up the Ranger (the wizard was buff STR 15 or 16) and threw the Ranger at the Ogres as cannon fodder. The noble Paladin didn't like this maneuver scolded the Wizard later, but it had protected the Wizard and Psionic from being surrounded.
They worst came when the goal was to sneak inside a enemy camp and if possible take out or capture the leader. The group huddled near the edge of a encampment surveying the area on how to best sneak in the well lit Leader's tent. The Ranger was just trying to prove himself by then, to show the party he was worthy and ran up to the leader's tent. The Party watched in horror as the Ranger stuck his head into the tent (The Player was not paying attention when the DM said the tent was well lit, and thought he was being sneaking looking around with infravision, alas no take backs) What the Ranger saw was a small group of the biggest baddest mofos in the Army look at him and say "Intruder!"
Most recently I played an aloof, narcissistic swashbuckler. He was the type of person that if asked a question he didn't really know the answer to he would just make something up and he believed what he made up, major Delusions of Grandeur. Now I didn't expect this character to become a leader, but the party ended up with two not so bright barbarians and cleric who kept running from danger. The barbarians were more inclined to listen to the idiot swashbuckler than the intelligent coward healer.
What peanut butter retains all of it's natural goodness after being processed by a factory? Can you recommend any brands Lilith?
Why not just make your own. It's super simple you need either a cheap food processor or possibly a decent quality blender (I know my blender has a recipe for it, but wouldn't want to vouch for all blenders)
Most recipes just call for Peanuts and maybe a little peanut oil. Throw it in the food processor and destroy until smooth. Want it chunky? add some more peanuts to the smooth PB and only slightly destroy some more.
Later I can tell you how to make your own jam & jelly.
The following recipe is easy and it's fancy for PB.
Alton Brown's Peanut Butter
* 15 ounces shelled and skinned
Place the peanuts, salt and honey into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Place the lid back on and continue to process while slowly drizzling in the oil and process until the mixture is smooth, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Place the peanut butter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.

and maybe Sutter should get a new jar or switch to celery it's good for the long reach scoop.
Mmm...I love peanut butter. I love it on apples, celery, crackers, graham crackers, in Thai food, and of course on chocolate.
However I don't think I have ever kept a jar in my office...
...is it in case of emergencies? in case of Apocalypse break glass?
Looking forward to the book, Amazon says OCT 2010 is it still that far away?
