    Okay, this has been bugging me for years.

    Every time I read the phrase "Gartine Arch", I cannot help but think of some lines from the Leonard Cohen song Hallelujah:

    I've seen your flag on the marble arch,
    But love is not a victory march;
    It's a cold and very broken hallelujah.


    Of course, in my mind's ear, "marble arch" is replaced with "Gartine Arch".

    So now I've got this mental image of ol' Lenny singing about Sagiro's D&D campaign, and it's just... funny as heck, actually.

    There. I feel better, having gotten that off my chest.

    I'm a fan of the hair of the dog treatment for what ails you. If you're going to have a song stuck in your head, it might as well be awesome:

    The version of that song I know best is k.d. lang's.

    [ame=http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=P_NpxTWbovE]k.d. lang, Live at the Junos - Hallelujah[/ame]
    -Kaodi

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
    Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
    'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
    Robs me of that which not enriches him
    And makes me poor indeed.

    -Iago, Shakespeare's Othello, Act III. Scene III. Lines 180-186.

    Here's a bump and a plea for an update.
    Enemies are the price of Honor.
    ~Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander, Wizard of the First Order

    Fear. Fear attracts the fearful. The strong. The weak. The innocent. The corrupt. Fear. Fear is my ally.
    ~Darth Maul

    No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
    ~Yoda

    I don't want the Tyranny of Fun to become one of PF RPG's design principles. That's 4e's province, and I'd happily leave it that way.

    I second this bump! Although with Sagiro's commentary in PirateCat's game, maybe there just isn't time any more

    I am very interested in seeing how it all ends...

    Sagiro is being kind enough to make 4e notes about my new campaign.

    Big game last night in Sagiro's campaign! We have just:

    - confronted an army of 10,000 undead
    - found the "skysteel hole" mentioned in Step's dream
    - met our first dracolich
    - had one of our members splatter into unrecognizeable body parts
    - had another one of our members take enough damage to drop them to -86 hit points
    - confront the most powerful member of the Black Circle that we know of
    - come face to face with the Emperor

    Uh huh. It was quite a game. And for those keeping track of such things, it was game #226.
