Infernal Soil Chapter 8a&b

We played nearly back to back this past week due to the Turkey-day festivities. Plus the first session in question we were down a player. So a too long delayed write up that means I'll prolly miss something important.
Still following this? Now we have some REAL conflict! )

Infernal Soil Chapter 7 (End Part 1)

Well well well my pretties... they finally got into it with ze Big Bad... All went pretty well well until they tried to close the gates...Players being players however never cease to amuse me. My biggest amusement is behind the cut.

Infernal Soil Chapter 6

So we open tonight meeting Juan Manuel Cortez, the "most interesting mage in the world." If he turned you into a newt, you'd add it to your resume. If he hexed you cell phone you'd never get it fixed. He once had a spell misfire just to know what Harry felt like... I don't all was cast Evocations, but when I do prefer Dos-Hexes. Stay misty my friends...
Dos Hexes? Really? )

Infernal Soil Chapter 5

Thursday night again, and although work is kicking my butt (Never agree to parallel database development as a validation method! It sux!), it was time for Infernal Soil. A bit of a quiet night really, nothing all that strange. Well unless you count fighting Gummy Bear Vol-tron's normal... More behind the cut.
It's ALIVE! Nope they never saw that one coming? )

Infernal Soil Chapter 3

So when we last left our not so fair band of wacky wanderers, they were left under the city of Cleveland, with a torn and nearly shredded body at their feet, a mildly traumatized, pregnant Potion-o-mancer to be taken back to her loved ones, and a PC missing in action...

Read on, cause Cleveland is Plum magikal I tells ya... )

(no subject)

OK so I never post to this so I figure I'll shock the 3 of you that read it and post. Plus I'm murdering time in a Caribou until I meet some freinds later and I figure when in rome and all...

Here's a meme (under the cut), that [ profile] innocent_man posted to his Journal.
The rules are:
1. You can ONLY answer Yes or No .
2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages/comments you and asks. And believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming... things are not exactly as they seem.
3. It is harder than it looks, but NO explanations. You will want to... but don't!

The answers that prolly won't shock you... )

OK and I'm not explaining, just asking -- Shouldn't it be ridden IN a heliocopter???? Just sayin... As the late great Mr. Carlin said... "Let the crazies get ON... I'm getting in..."

Origins Event Reg Rant.

OK I'm sure others are posting similar complaints on their blogs today, and I'm occasionally one to beat a dead horse. I mean I don't want to get off on a rant here, but...

Especially when it's like, I dunno one of your major functions for the annual convention. Really I know working with gamers is like herding cats, but what percentage of your customers are IT geeks that are REALLY turned off by things not working smoothly? Folks who then rightly or wrongly think they could do it better and get angered and eventually vote with their feet?
I mean c'mon are they just not willing to spend the cash? Or is it that this is mainly done with volunteer support? What gives. Every year we go through this, every year they promise "We'll fix it next year" and it never does... It should not have taken me 4hrs to try to check out only to have things freeze and make me now scared what happened to my first pass of CC info. It finally did go through, giving me a receipt which I can use to raise hell when things are oversold like I'm betting they will be as a result, but it was just painful.

Poly Sci Meme

So BHM[ profile] innocent_man asked us to do this meme. For what ever reason this seemed to interest me. Some of the attitudes might surprise those who think I'm just the "right wing looney" that plays games with him. Others might not be so surprised...
Anyway, here's the meme )

Anyhew that's the Meme. 2 posts in as many days. A record for me...

Crusader's Chronicles

OK So we started a new game in my Tuesday night group and well I'm trying to A) record this crap. B) Post more on my LJ.
It's only a transitional game 2-3 sessions to stall while some Real Life(TM) stuff happens to a couple of the players and the next GM in the troupe get's his act together. I love this particular campaign/group of characters. Questor is a fun character, cross the Joker (well not Heath's, more Jack's) with Doc Strange and throw in a little more silliness. The power levels are near Godlike -- 900pt GURPS 4th ed supers will do that. If he wants to do it mostly he can. This is fun thwarting my GM's plans in ways he never thought of. But the four-color power level makes it so it's hard to play for extended periods of time and feel challenged, so I'm glad we're only using it as a transition.

The back story is long, but I provide it here for your amusement and cause my GM went through the trouble of compiling our misadventures. From there I'll lead into what happened last night. But for starters here are the principles:

Ok that's a long one - I'll target Matt's([ profile] innocent_man) meme tomorrow. Too many blogs in one day might make my friends heads a$$plode!
