    I'm All Out of Bears, I'm So Lost Without You . . . (An Aelar, Ailurus and Willow moment)

    Once upon a time, there were two winter wolves and a passel of Orcs who made the poor life choice to attack our party of 3 wood elves: Aelar (a ranger), Ailurus (his little sister, a druid), and Willow (a friend who's a heckuva rogue). And this is how it happened from my point of view. I'm the...

    Things I learned being Dylrath Birdhouse in Piratecat's game, a long time ago

    Was cleaning out some old files this evening and ran across the following list. I may have posted this stuff ages ago. Can't recall. Thought there might be some of you out there might find this amusing. 1. If you beat someone up, you get to keep their stuff. 2. Stay out of combat. 3. Any plan...

    Attaching images

    Apologies if this has been asked a million times already--just link me to the answer thread. Why is it that sometimes when I add an image to a thread it shows the picture at a readable size right in the post, and sometimes it shows a thumbnail with a link, and sometimes just the name of the...

    Sialia's New Deck

    I know, I know. There is no "Turtle" card in the Deck of Many Things. This would have been a lovely snake haired Euryale if my scanner hadn't conked out on me. But it did and I was possessed by a desperate need to try out my new idea for a deck of golden cloisonne cards (enchantable quality...

    This is for a fun & cool project I'm thinking of doing. I'm looking for the all time top ten best short pithy things that have been said in Piratecat's Storyhour, or the Early Years, or The Thread That Must Not Be Named. By "pithy" I mean not more than a dozen words. The shorter the better...

    Where is the Thread with all the Cool Idea Links?

    I have a link to add to it: This whole site is full of the history of textiles, and I see lots of gaming ideas and world design ideas in here. But for starters, the above article on what the first women aviators wore is a hoot. I want Piratecat to run...

    I need a potion name

    I need a really good name for a potion of scalding hot steam breath. It needs to be made up of recognizable English words, and not entirely give away what the potion does. It might suggest that the potion users mouth and throat will not be wholly immune to the effects. I've been toying...

    where was that custom t-shirt site?

    Does anyone recall--a while back somebody made some gaming related t-shirts via a web site that allowed you to post your design, and then folks could order the design on whatever objects they wanted (t-shirts, boxes, caps, thongs, etc. were available) and you didn't have to pre-print any...

    Another wonderful website:Women, Dragons, Witty Insights

    Ok, somebody put a lot of thought into this collection. Many pages of shamelessly pirated pictures of women with dragons, with truly marvelous captions. Enjoy! "The problem with fairies is, once you hear that characteristic 'pop' sound when they...

    So, the other night, we're doing the big raid on the ghoulish drug lord's party in our Delta Green campaign. I'm on a team of six "firefighters" and our job is to come in from the roof, and work our way down to where the ghoul party is being busted up by the troops on the first floor, making...

    How Do You Get in to Character? [ was "Character Totems"]

    Some while ago, I got in the habit of sticking some small object in my dice bag to represent any PC I was playing in an ongoing campaign. I had a small pin depicting a pair of knitting needles and green yarn for Mrs. Horn in Sagiro's campaign. Dylrath had his mouthharp for Piratecat's...
