My sanity will never be the same. Did the graveyard shift at the store last night and had one male patron come in dressed as a stripper wearing a simple g-string with a artificial phallic. It was the comedic has his phallic extended down to his knees, had testicles the size of oranges and was plated like a disco-ball. But he had an ass hairier than a woolly mammoth.

I really mustn't go on like this. After my shift ended and the day's money counted, I purchased a large bottle of Jack Daniels. I going to kill as many brains cells before I go to bed for the morning and pray that, in my best effort after I awaken, that I won't remember anything about last night.

Then again, there's the store security cameras. If corporate was watching and sent e-mail to boss, I am going to catch Hell, and ridicule tomorrow.

This is how spell D-O-O-M.

The native / local pumpkins we have here are stumpy, ‘squashed’ looking, have green not orange skin, and are as hard as rock – you would need a jackhammer to carve them. But rather than doing as (I hear) the Irish do, and carve turnips, potatoes and other locally available vegetables, people go and buy big, round, orange American style pumpkins bought at exorbitant prices to carve Jack-o-lanterns.

All we have here in China are the crappy little pumpkins. You just need a seriously sharp knife.

I enjoyed the first episode of Walking Dead although I had seen most of it in the shortened version that was used as a preview. How did everyone else feel about it?

Thought it was great! I'm gonna really enjoy my Sunday nights for the next 6 weeks. Hopefully Season 2 is longer.

So apparently the guys down at the store think I'm a jerk DM :P

Game Spoiler:
The fighter got killed at the last gaming session just before reaching level 5. The PCs had just done a huge favor to the city of Egorian. So they go back to their hellknight liaison tell them they would like to forgo reward for having their friend raised from the dead. The liaison agrees telling them he's sure he would have connections to do that. So I go into a nice solo description for the dead PC.

"Your floating on a gray featureless void moving toward some unseeable goal. Other souls around you float in different directions. Suddenly small eddies of fire appear around you, no bigger than a silver dollar. Burning hot chains erupt from the eddies hooking into you with searing pain, you struggle to get them out of you but as you rip one from your soul essence 3 more take it's place and pull taught. A large eddy erupts from beneath you, you struggle but to no avail the chains have you hopelessly caught, the pain is unimaginably awful. You get pulled in to the large eddy, you fall through a large fiery tunnel searing chains burning in your soul essence fire scorching you from the tunnel.
Suddenly you wake up flailing. Your on an obsidian slab in a large cathedral made of red veined black marbel, giant red tinted stained glass windows run the length of the cathedral, pentagrams embossed on the windows. A man in black red lined robes stands over you.
He speaks "My contract is fulfilled, you will find your things in the next room"
As you get up the man pauses "Your resurrection has taken a toll on your spirit, you will not be as strong as you once were. You must be more careful in future. (he pauses) But I may be able to help you with that (he smiles)."
PC: "I have no more gold for to offer"
The robed man pulls a scroll from a nearby drawer and shows it to the PC. It basically reads that a boon can be offered for either the PCs eternal soul or an equivalent boon given back to the church of Asmodeus.

The player takes nearly 10 minutes to decide and finally agrees because he doesn't want to be lower than the rest of the party. He signs the scroll in blood.

I then describe how the robed man starts chanting and he begins to feel warmth building up inside, then he the warmth builds to a slightly painful burn. Finally as the man chants louder it becomes unbearably painful blood spills from his eyes and mouth, his skin turns a painful red. He falls to his knees and screams in agony almost passing out, and then it stops all at once and he's 5th level. A raw burn mark appears on his chest in the shape of a pentagram. The robed man tells him that when the time is right he will be called upon and if he tries to renege on the contract the pentagram would burn into his chest all the way to his heart killing him outright. The robed man then smiles and tells to have a wonderful life.

The PC is now kinda angry I made him move his alignment one step closer to LE. Do you think I'm being a jerk. This game just started last night and it was awesome so I don't want to drive him off but seriously he chose to sign a contract with Asmodeus.

** spoiler omitted **...

You know, I could go on about how alignments are just an attempt to fit the vast spectrum of possible human motivations into nine convenient holes and even in a universe with an objective good and evil there's still a large gray area between each alignment that's open to large amounts of interpretation, and that once you bring mechanics into it you just give people a reason to make loud annoying arguments about it. Since that's irrelevant to this discussion, I won't.

But really, he's a Fighter. Unless he walks into something warded to keep Lawful Good things out, no one really cares what his alignment is. He only cares because it seems like you're forcing him not to play his character like he's Lawful Good anymore. (And he is Lawful Good, just marked by evil and all that jazz). Just note down that he counts as Lawful Neutral for mechanical effects on the off chance it comes up and move on with the game.

So, yeah. You just ran into the wall between alignment-as-personality and alignment-as-objective definition of good/evil.

Don't make deals with the devil if you are trying to be "good".

Now he has something to work on- redemption of a naive mistake.

I would point out to him that it is awesome flavor and a great character opportunity. Surely more awesome than whatever mechanical hijinks ensue.


To clarify, his alignment-as-personality is still Lawful Good, since it's still roughly the same character even though he died and made a deal with the devil and all that. His alignment-as-objective-truth is more evil than that, because he made a deal with an objectively-evil thing and had an objectively-evil rune burned on his chest. The player's mad because he thinks your changing the alignment-as-personality when you only meant to change alignment-as-objective-truth.

Liberty's Edge

Okay, let me see. He signs his SOUL to the DEVIL and complains when he's not as GOOD as he was before then. I agree with PirateDevon, if you want to be good, you don't trade your soul for power -- suck up the level loss and move on.

At first I was thinking that it might be borderline because he might have felt he was being force to change by DM fiat. Then, I realized (thanks to Ashe's comment) that he had a choice, and he had to have known the consequences of the choice he made. As long as he has an "out" that involves something more than an atonement spell, then I think it's fine.

I would see it as an interesting roleplaying opportunity, myself. :)
