"A wizard must always take care of his staff, Hairy Baggins," said Gandolfadore. "He must protect it, not go poking it about looking to spring traps or thumping stone-headed orcs over the noggin. Thrusting it into dark holes must be done cautiously and tenderly until you can ascertain how best to plumb its depths. A wizard must keep his staff clean, taking time as needed to rub it gently and lovingly with warm oil. When the wood is young, this may occur two or three times a day. Use long, slow strokes to polish your staff..."

The existence of a history nerd who loves to read fantasy is a sad one. One day, I will find a female-led fantasy wherein they describe their outfits without declaring corsetry a deathtrap.

But how else are we to know what Lady Strand-Tuckington is wearing as she tucks a strand of hair behind her ear and considers her next bold move?

I’ll show myself out.

And with that, Quibblemuch breasted boobily to the door and titted outside.

Bus escaped the Burmuda Triangle like time warp and arrived.

Rick Peck: "OK, hear me out. What if Lost + Suicide Squad reboot -- John Ostrander, not David Ayer -- but everyone's trapped on the Speed bus?"

Tugg Speedman: "Wait, how-?"
Rick Peck: "You're the grizzled bus driver two weeks from retirement. Also, they're talking to Hayley Atwell as the lead, um, your co-star, secret agent codenamed DeathQuaker. Think Kinnaman's Rick Flag, except interesting and entertaining. And Bridget Regan as the Mysterious Prisoner."
Tugg Speedman: "Hmmm..."

And actually, before the bus, the (now successful) plan was dinner at shake shack followed by aquarium for their half price tickets on Friday night special. So weekend's off to a good start.

Rick Peck: "Ellen Degeneres is an exec prod, so we've written her in as your conscious, like Jiminy Cricket but a fish of some sort. Shake Shack is interested in product placement."

Tugg Speedman: "Hmmm..."
Rick Peck: "And maybe Tessa Thompson as Catwoman."
Tugg Speedman: "Oooo..."
Rick Peck: "And no Kirk Lazarus anywhere."
Tugg Speedman: "Done. Where do I sign?"

Now if only thanos's motivation had made a little more sense.

Thanos: "Yeah, it wasn't really about overpopulation or limited resources or trying to get out of the friendzone with" {tips Infinity Fedora} "M'Lady Death."

Thanos: "I... I just really hate people. Nothing personal. Everyday, everywhere, people people people. Irritating me, infuriating me in countless, stupid, self-absorbed ways."

Audience: OK, that's a motivation I can relate to.

Coulson: "Sounds like you just badly needed a vacation. You should visit Tahiti. Nice breezes, drinks on the beach, the prettiest sunsets. It's a magical place."

Hopefully someone in that squabbling cacophony has a plan this time.

{Opie Cunningham voiceover:} Like the Cylons, they didn't have a plan either.

Also, the goblins stole all the money from the banana stand. And then they burned it down. While they were still inside.

Jon Favreau is voicing a character

And it’s probably this guy.



Favreau's character is Bourexa Casper, a spacer who needs one last big score of spice (11 kinds) so he can open his own food shuttle selling KFP (Kashyyyk Fried Porg).

I prefer to think that the Shirren have a variety of genders based on the role (or lack thereof) an individual prefers to play in the rearing of children. That system is too complex for most Pact Worlders, so they use pronouns based on their sex in Common.

real roll players take asexuality, because DM's will just use your loved ones to draw you into a trap and it makes you susceptible to various charm monster like abilities.
This is true, if all your loved ones aren't dead you're just handing the gm a rope to yank you around by *nodnod*
Lol. I like to do the opposite so all of the story revolves around my character. My disposable loved ones make me the center of the universe.
It also makes generating backup characters easier when you've got an undisclosed number of identical twin/triplet/X+1 brothers with exactly the same stats and class levels. Just make sure your character's last will and testament leaves all his gear to his brother, who coincidentally happens to appear soon after your death.


Cleric: {squints at new PC's adventuring charter} "So, you're Sir Reginald Meeseeks the 13th? The other other other twin brother to our third Reg? Or was it fourth Reg. Wait, how many Regs have we gone through just this month?! I'm losing count."

Poor Doctor Donna.
At least she got marry someone she loved, be with her loving family, and still maintain something of a normal life that she seems to like. Bill's traveling the universe with a girl she kind of had a crush on. What about all her friends and family on Earth? S%%%, what about finishing her education? I mean, I guess she could always go back to Earth but I still wish she had a better sendoff that didn't feel like such a clumsy narrative get out of jail free card. Puddle Ex Machina can only happen on Doctor Who.
Well she is a Time Travelling puddle, presumably she could pop home just after she left and sort things out, explain about the drippyness, finish her classes, etc...


Dennis the Space Peasant: "Listen. Strange women lying in ponds time-traveling through the universe is no basis for a satisfying character denouement. Supreme narrative power derives from a tight screenplay and believable, actualized characters, not from some farcical aquatic deux ex machina."
King Moffat: "Be quiet!"
Dennis: "You can't expect to wield supreme narrative power just 'cause you write in some watery tart that steps in the 11th hour to unfridge the character you lazily fridged in the first place."
Moffat: "Shut up!"

Nah, it's Superboy Prime punching reality so hard he changes the universe. :v
What if we are all just characters in a novel and the Mandala effect is simply the Author re-writing some of the backstory.
I'd like to request a new writer.

Out in the mountains yesterday, chilling, eating lunch and feeding a jay, and struck up a conversation with a family who also wanted to see the jay. They're from Illinois, and they lived in the same town I did at the same time, around 1990. When I went to Hawaii, struck up a conversation with people on the beach, and they were from that same town.

What the heck? Is everyone required to live in that town of 25,000 at some time in their lives?

Uh oh, she's figuring out she's the lead on The Treppa Show. What we owe her in backpay and hazard pay will drain our budget for this season. Quick, distract her somehow!

I just saw Salvatore at connecticon. He was doing autographs. I have a long history of hate for the man and am proud that I didn't say anything stupid, as his booth was diagonally across from mine and I had to stare at him all weekend.

{somewhere, somewhen, Salvatore tosses in a restless sleep, haunted by a vision of the unnamed Avatar of Ultimate Blackmanliness who stared silently at him throughout the Con. His unconscious self feels deep shame under the Avatar's stern and disappointed gaze. He awakens suddenly, not quite free of his fever dream, and begins writing his final Drizzizzizzzizz't book, "The Final Problem", with a strong focus on this mysterious, hauntingly handsome, new muse.

Chapter One begins, Salvatore discovers surprisingly, with expys of Alton Brown and Joss Whedon all "Rosencrantz-&-Guildenstern-ing it up", unaware they are both on a lethal date with a massive avalanche...}

Does that mean the Starfinder team always has to wait for the Pathfinder team to go through the boxes of donuts before they get any, so that they are always left with the plain cake ones?

This is why each member of the Starfinder team should keep a sekrit hidden jar of Nutella for just such emergencies. It would also prove a source of high-energy nutrition in case House Upstairs lays Sutterfell under siege and the team has to wait until the nanotriops finish chewing an escape tunnel.

So, Jaime, hope Littlefinger lets you borrow his teleporter...

'Cause remember when you had to kill a mad ruler who was about to burn down King's Landing and everyone in it? Yeah, about that...

So why make Golarion disappear?

Clearly the Martial Arcanists of Golarion Optimizer's Guild (M.A.G.O.G.) perfected the art of murderhoboing with their ultimate base class, the Krikkiter. As a result, the gods immediately sealed the planet in a Slo-Time Mayonnaise Jar, within which time would pass almost infinitely slowly for the professional murderhobos until the end of the Universe. Thus the rest of the Universe is now safe from being killed until dead, their corpses chunky-salsa'ed, and all their belongings looted for resale.
