Everything is better with Steampunk!

Yes, that is steampunk star wars. They all went to a lot of trouble to coordinate and create those costumes. Not that I know any of them. However I stand by the statement that steampunk makes everything better. No exceptions. No, not even then is it excepted. That is all.

Onotole: (( So you're gonna grease up and get tentacled... ))

Soban (Hybrid Form): « 1d20+7 = 20 + 7 = 27 » I assume I fail

LooneyDM: (( are you going to continue on the formians or no? ))

Obviously this is only the first six skills. More later.

Dice of Many Colors

I don't have quite this many dice yet. Nor are they color coded like this. I do know people with size coded dice bags (ie one pocket for each type of die). Someday I will have this many and people will ask why. I will answer them simply. You can never have too many dice. That way you can microwave the bad ones. Or bury them. Or feed them to kobolds.

Early morning lazy quote post

Night shift night shift, what would I do without you? Oh yes, get decent amounts of sleep and not be up at 1 am posting this. Quotes away!

DM: Most of the cat warriors have steel claws over their real claws.
Attapacca: They had their nails done

Tirah: I can speak it but not read or write it
Attapacca: To win their trust you must play scrabble. Evil scrabble.

DM (as chieftain): Why did you bring all these people back to me. They must have rolled really well on diplomacy

DM: All our warriors are the best because we only have one stat block.

Goldielocks: There's some eight legged lizard things in the trees.
Tirah: Do they look like they'd make good handbags

DM: You feel your skin harden.
Attapacca: Darn it, I had a facial today.

Attapacca: What would have happened if he failed?
DM: Petrified.
Vimac: He'd be the new statue in the swamp.
Tirah: Could we fix that?
DM: With the right ritual.
Vimac: We'll shove him in the bag of holding
DM: If he doesn't fit, chip off chunks.
Goldielocks: You put my left hand on my right side!
Vimac: You put my head on backwards!
Attapacca: Why didn't anyone tell me my ass was so big?

Looney: Let's see if I can do this *rolls a 20*
Attapacca & Tirah: Yay!
Goldielocks (from the bathroom): Yay!

DM: That's the 4th '1' on memory of a thousand lifetimes.
Looney: They were bad memories
DM: More like memory of two life times
Attapacca: Those were the life times they were drunk.

Vimac: We fought a basilisk and no one got stoned.
Attapacca (singing): Everyone must get stoned.

Guess what I don't have today? If you guessed inspiration you are 100% correct. That said a chess murder mystery would be entirely amusing.

On motivation (the classics!)

There's nothing like the classics. Why does the young hero set forth from their hometown? Because it's been destroyed of course! Be it dragon, evil bad dude, marauding nasties or any other variety of town ending problem that can be killed it's all in the classic fantasy books. I doesn't work quite as well when run though a fantasy campaign, because this sort of motivating heartbreak is usually reserved for the main character. Which makes for a rather amusing tale if everyone's from a town that was destroyed. Doubly so if they were all destroyed for different reasons. Imagine being in a campaign where 5 villages were all eradicated for entirely different reasons, all of them nearly world threatening threats. On one hand you'd have a metric crap ton of plot hooks. On the other hand your heroes would have their hands overfull dealing with their own pasts. You might get complaining players as well if their past isn't dealt with in a timely fashion. All in all a mess waiting to happen. I should try running a game like that someday.

Mallexantus: (( INT 6. I'll be chancellor! ))

Moastuo: "Double the odds of bad shit happening?"
Soban (Hybrid Form): "Maybe. We will find out."
Onotole: "I think we're the bad shit that happens to other people."
Onotole: "And having no stones doesn't save ya."
LooneyDM: With the addition of the new stones all the stones begin to glow brighter.
Mallexantus: (( Ell-i-ott! ))

LooneyDM: (( who all has stones? Mal, Soban, and Xochitl? ))
Onotole: (( Soban is stoned now? D: ))

Onotole: "Perhaps they're prototypes for me."

Moastuo: (( tiger porn ))

LooneyDM: (( please note that every square within the area now has tentacles in it, this includes the squares above. ))
