Drat I was hoping this thread was going to be an item thread about designing hats. My swashbuckler will be so disappointed...

Maybe magic hats are a common theme this year?

Nah, its the hidden competition...

Design a hat that Doctor Who (as played by Matt Smith) will think is cooler than both a Fez and a Stetson.

The swashbuckler's hat, stays on head, changes color to match your outfits, has dimensional space for a rapier and 2 daggers.

The blasters hat, provides a savings throw bonus for when you screw up and hit yourself with your own fireballs ect.

The rogues hat, bonus for hiding your thieves tools, and increases carrying capacity for when your stealing.

The goblin hat, got to be magical to fit on that football pathfinder gobos call a head.

I'd go with the turban. It's a classic.

Damn it. My item was going to be "Hat of the Fancy Designer"

Back to the drawing board.

Auto Reject #28 - you didn't leave any space for the sonic screwdriver :P

the real question is; are we intended to put on our hats of the fancy designer, or the fancy hats of the designer?

*Holds up two seperate hats*

Oh, the decisions!

Hats of the designer's fancy?

Perhaps I should just wear my fancy hat of the fancy designer's fancy?

My fancy designer hat is an ushanka that looks like Domo-kun.

Re: Fancy Hats in Gaming

Once, I played a goblin in a homebrew comedy World of Darkness setting. The GM was improvising a lot, and I was a first-time player in a group who'd gamed with him frequently before, so I felt a bit adrift during character creation. Not knowing quite where to put my points, I decided to sink them into a 5 dot Artifact hat.

"Ah, a magical hat! What does it do?" the GM inquired, no doubt expecting it to grant flight or shoot deadly hat beams or something.

"It's not magical, it's just really nice," I replied. Yes, this hat had no magical features. It was just a deluxe hat, a paragon of masterwork millinery, a hat so fancy that it cost as much to put on a character sheet as, say, Mjolnir.

They thought that I was wasting my points... the fools. Actually, whenever I needed to get anything done, all I had to do was suggest that my hat might be able to somehow solve the problem. The GM, struggling to give the new guy 5 background points of utility out of a "mere" fancy hat, would oblige. That hat turned out to be probably the best 5-dot investment I've ever made in WoD (other than 5 dots of Presence in V:tM, of course, but that's just cheating).

The only drawback to a gambit like this is that the GM will eventually have somebody steal the wonder hat, and then you'll get what's coming to you for manipulating the social contract....
