    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    In the ethereal sense as portrayed here, yes. ;) It has inspired me to create a new deity, Electross; and since its electrons run through every manifestation anyone worshipping it can grant spells! ;)

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    In my game the above is an archetypal example of at least 3 missed shaving throws vs. confusion! ;) Just think if all of these words had been directed to product creation! Morrus would have had at least one new Kickstarter! ;). Just having fun. Otto made made me do it!

    Release Outland - Work of Fiction - Shipjacking

    Good luck with your endeavor! Looks approachable for the 20 minutes I spent perusing your imaginative offerings. Just one pointer from a long seasoned publisher. It's always better to slant the reason for adopting your particular brand of gaming from a positively engaged view rather than...

    D&D 4E Ron Edwards on D&D 4e

    Hmm. Not trying to be pedantic, but... Rather than framing this as a point moving downward in his supposed thesis, and into the unresolvable area of the nebulous, would not it be better couched, considering that it is his assertion that he must prove (or not), to promote the upward course by...

    D&D 4E Ron Edwards on D&D 4e

    Everything is fair game within the haphazardly cast net of rhetoric compared to the purposefully wound rope of philosophical inquiry.

    D&D 4E Ron Edwards on D&D 4e

    THIS is why I have always agreed with Noam Chomsky about postmodern (written) expression. Combine it with histrionics, and viola! the word-run lurking above...

    TSR Whatever Happened To TSR's Michael?

    Well, there's only so many times you can lead a horse to fresh water; and if it continually refuses to drink, it isn't because of the water... -- "M. Twain Kuntz" ;)

    TSR Whatever Happened To TSR's Michael?

    I say he achieved martyrdom for his efforts and was promptly returned to the Abyss! :) Hey, anything's possible... ;)

    D&D 5E Why not Alternity? (Or, will or how might WotC do SF?)

    In my view, since the D&D brand moved in-house and thus leveled up in the Hasbro IP chain, they will concentrate on developing electronic media perhaps as spin-offs and/or segues of the D&D line. SF in some form, thus, will become a factor for electronic media, just my feeling. D&D-type...

    D&D General D&D doesn't need Evil

    Your two quotes that I use for reference: Note: This is a game, even its authorial representation of humans, under scrutiny, could find caricature and cliches even in Modern thought or Classical. Since Invoking a line of comparison of thought (the real world expectations and experiences in...

    Commentary thread in that “Describe your game in five words” thread.

    "Rumble, mumble and run!" Note: Pretty much, as well, a silent slogan for the original play-testers of D&D.

    D&D General D&D doesn't need Evil

    Aside #2: A Strawberry Daiquiri doesn't need strawberries, but it's sure better with them! ;)

    D&D General D&D doesn't need Evil

    Hmm... Apparently a redundancy can make another redundancy redundant!

    D&D General D&D doesn't need Evil

    You know, very simply, mixing the two extremes--life and fictional representations thereof--is not a good premise to begin with, let alone describing evil as solely a Christian/Westernized concept. I am sure that the Poles when invaded by The Mongols or Huns, slaughtered and taken prisoner, saw...

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    Aside: It has always interested me, and sometimes left me wondrous, while observing an unrelenting cross-bombardment of words that essentially end, almost every time, at détente.

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    Of course they should be wary of her +5 frying pan and other repurposed Culinary Artifacts! But at least her range is not daunting, being consonant with the dimensions of her kitchen...

    You even having to point that out means, however, that they're half way there... :)

    D&D General D&D doesn't need Evil

    Blasphemy! You will immediately report to the Department of Redundancy Department for you (or it is me?) have been made redundant! ;)

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    Since they are fictional entities any fictive reason should suffice within the prescribed limits of choice. Who's going to the Challenge THEM? Mother Hubbard? ;)
