In the beginning of June 1964, just months before the Gulf of Tonkin incident inspired standard military action in Southeast Asia, HST offered his services to the President and the American people as the governor of American Samoa and a rational representative in the Pacific.

Hey man thanks! The most common advice I've been given since I started dming is to make sure that everybody at the table has a good time.

And yes they're absolute Hooligans lol

RPG Ghetto / Lost Mines of Phandelver
« on: March 17, 2018, 05:22:36 am »
So I've never played a tabletop RPG before -- ever.  But, on a whim began watching Matt Colville's Running the Game series on YT and, later, Critical Role. So now I'm hooked. I got the Starter Set, Lost Mines of Phandelver, for XMAS and we recently began running the campaign for my wife, son and daughter. My son is 13 and daughter is 11.

So I figured I'll share what transpires.
Painted some minis:


  • Son is a duergar fighter with a wiping issue.
  • Daughter plays a half-elf cleric trickster domain (acolyte of Loki). She even uses the Loki Pop Vinyl figure as her holy symbol
  • Wife plays a scourge aasimar paladin with a pet tiger.

Since this is a learning experience for all of us, we have had some incidents...

First session:
Daughter's passive perception is 12 which matched the ability to detect a snare trap. She says, "i step into the trap anyway"

Took 1d6 blugeoning damage for no good reason.

Second Session:
(STARTER SET SPOILERS)
Our heroes enter the Cragmaw Cave (goblin hideout led by a bugbear named Klarg). Immediately upon entering there's a side area that has a window one can look/crawl through to view the "boss" area area. Upon a successful climb, my son, a duergar fighter, says, "I pull down my pantaloons and take it to browntown" I say, okay make an athletics check...THE DAMMED SPAWN ROLLS A NATURAL 20.

His "character's flaw" is that he doesn't wipe properly and so manages to build up enough pressure to chuck the projectile through the window, into the adjacent room NAILING Klarg on the head who just happens to be walking out in front of a smoldering camp fire.

At this point I'm >forced< to determine the damage for a ranged dookie. I just shrugged and went with 2d6 (after all it /was/ a critical hit). Does 9 damage and knocks him into the camp fire doing an additional 1d6 for a grand total of 13 damage.

No sense trying to make non-sense of this board. The live posts this moment: yours, gaming posts, other cramps. Is this all there is? Any of y'all get out of yer house and do somethings? Or is it a sit-in-your-room & post on the internet dealy? ( O.K., I really like the shared art. That r'ocks) But can I show you an image of a mouse with a human ear growing out it's side?  I'll be sitting in my room when I post it.

Excuse me while I put on my dancing monkey outfit for you   :roll:

I told you guys why I huff noobs, I never should have stopped.  This guy seemed so promising, though.

No sweat--the goddamned chicken dino can eat his ass for all i care now

a team has been tampering with the molecular processes that make up a beak in chickens.

By doing so, they have managed to create a chicken embryo with a dinosaur-like snout and palate, similar to that of small feathered dinosaurs like Velociraptor. The results are published in the journal Evolution.

The team's aim was to understand how the bird beak evolved, because the beak is such a vital part of bird anatomy. It has been crucial for their success. The 10,000 or more bird species occupy a wide range of habitats, and many have specialised beaks to help them survive.

Seems that way...
Watergate prosecutor says there’s enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction

Quote
“There is so much evidence now, and as was said, it’s not one piece, it’s the total picture. The pieces of the puzzle are fitting together and they spell obstruction,” [Jill Wine-Banks] said.

Wine-Banks noted that regardless of whether Trump committed any wrongdoing prior to the investigation, he could still be found guilty of obstruction of justice for trying to undermine the probe by firing the person leading it.

“You don’t need an underlying crime for the crime of obstruction,” she said. “To impede an investigation, whether you were part of the original crime or not, you have committed a separate crime: Obstruction of justice.”

This Twitter thread discusses the idea about Putin's motives should Hillary have won the election. One point was that Putin is sitting on more hacked emails that would have otherwise been released in 2017. It makes me wonder if so many resignations in congress are preemptive flounces due to congress knowing they've been compromised.  More new faces in 2018 means fewer compromised politicians. 

Maybe not so much as a strategic move but a beneficial side effect? idk
