Their loss, your gain. Love my Aussie, hope she is just as good as he is.

Dangit, Cal... now you got me choked up... quick somebody make a terrible pun or tell an egregious GMing story!

LOL Not really egregious, but for my Halloween game this weekend I used the Implacable Stalker template to create a Jason Voorhees-Michael Myers BBEG. And I have a spider that cries like a baby to lure its prey (someone on the boards came up with that one. I wish I could take credit for it).

Fuzzy memory here from early gaming days

There was a Barghest that used that "baby" cry tactic on the party in one of the published modules. Don't remember which one since I was more of a hanger-on than actual party member at that time.

All I remember for certain is that we survived by ignoring the plea.


Most of my players will ignore it. But one of them, my absolute best roleplayer, will play her character to the hilt and probably investigate.

In the 1st ed I think there was a Luecrotta (Spelling?) or something, basically looked like a big, hairless dog, that could imitate speech to lure prey into a location where it could be more easily ambushed.

First I've heard of the baby cry tactic though, nice touch.
Evil, but nice.
;P

My players are such jaded, hard-boiled bastards, they’d probably nuke the room where they heard the crying baby and then ask if there were any masterwork, platinum binkies in the rubble...

ROFL,...
Good thing I wasnt sipping coffee RIGHT then!
;P

To be fair tho, most of our encounters really ARE despicable, terrible, dangerous monsters, after so much of that IRL I'd probably do the same thing! ;)

Strange Aeons:
So in the second book of Strange Aeons, there's a mansion filled with Hastur cultists. The PCs had made one raid there at night, killed a few cultists and abominations. The next day, they came back. They knocked at the front gate. Two cultists opened the door and welcomed them in, smirking at the would-be disruptors.

I thought there would be some Bluff, maybe some Intimidate by the players. To get further into the compound without fighting or wasting resources.

Nope.

SHANK!

So much shanking...

I read that as masterwork, platinum bikinis. What a disappointment.

Or not. Now that I am looking into the manual, it needs to be charged for 12 hours before first use. I am not delaying my sleep that much.

Well, despite his occasionally cosmopolitan demeanor, Monkey Santa has had something of a sheltered life. He doesn't even realize King Kong isn't a documentary. Cut the little guy some slack... He's not a great monkey and he's a terrible Santa. But he's the best Monkey Santa ever.

True. Like a fighter/rogue isn't as good a fighter as a single-class fighter or as good a rogue as a single-class rogue - it's the combination of the two which makes it.


*debeverage*

HA! Well said, well said!

Dude, they're fur lined on the inside. What do you think masterwork means?

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend?

I'm working this weekend.

Nothing too bad, but still,...
WORKING.

;P

That ends the griping. For now.

;)

Later!

Weekend has been great. Had lunch at a new Indo-Pakistani place yesterday with my son and his mom and last night I got to run my Halloween game, which was a hit. So it's been really good.

Getting a solid 24 hours on the clock before the week starts. Think I might take Tuesday as a sick day to recover and spend time with Cyz.

Ruhroh. Somebody danced in her water bowl while I took a nap. Like a sprite of the woodland spring, strewing water hither and yon with joyous abandon...


Lt me guess, LAB mix?
:)
Them pups do love the water.


We’re not sure. She may have some lab, but her body type doesn’t show it. Mostly Aussie is the guess.

Hello John.


Good morning, class. Today, we will be calculating the product of the derivatives of the 25 functions on the chalkboard, from negative Infinity to positive Infinity. You have thirty minutes to do so. Beginning ... now.

Correct. There is no chalkboard. At least, none visible to you.


Calculus is an infinitessimally-edged sword.

I’ve had to explain a few important details, but the new hire seems to be working out well so far.

The new pup seems to be at least politely pretending to pay attention.

House Santa. Our words are: We Fling Poo. It means that there is nothing so vile that we will not weaponize it to destroy those who oppose us. Also, we literally fling poo.
