Happy Haggert Hurried Hungry Hitch Hiking Hired Henchmen Hivers.... apply within

And it did. They're reporting one woman has been shot and has died. Trump needs to be charged with her murder.

I started this day cheering a great historic moment. Now I'm crying after a historic tragedy. On the same day? How does this happen?
RECO Act. Charge him will everything. Murder, Assault, Damage of Property and against Police and Federal. I'm sure there are more Federal related crimes there.

Given the pervasiveness of the perversity we’ve seen from the radicalized right and it’s cynical enablers, justice at the federal level may be hard to come by.

OTOH, state level charges and actions by professional organizations may be somewhat more likely. I’m hopeful that a bunch of them will be disbarred from practicing law, for instance. Starting with Rudy G.

A tall, thin, attractive woman with a nice butt wanted to talk to me. I was in a hurry, and she was drunk off her ass. My timing is horrible. If I were not working I'd so be there talking to her.

The right wingnuts are blaming ANTIFA for the coup attempt. Are they saying their followers are so stupid and gullible they'll follow their most hated enemy? Can we get a few ANTIFA to jump off a cliff to test this theory?

So the pc’s have amassed quite a lot of loot. As in, the RAW Bag of Holding is about to burst. I don’t want to really bother with that, or the weight of treasure anyway, so there should really be something ”bigger”. So I came up with an artefact: The Deep Chest.

It is an obvious treasure chest of indetermined origin. 3x1.5x1.5 ft in dimensions with an additional 0.5ft tall arched lid. The wood it is made of and the iron reinforcements on the corners look as if it had been sunken in seawater for a decade. The wood has been carved with a curious tentacle motif that seems to shift and writhe ever so slightly. When opened it is loosely filled with junk. Pots and pans, dented and oxidised, a rusty hilt poking up between some decayed leather, pieces of wood you have no idea what it used to be.

And if viewed through a Detect Magic effect it shines like a thousand suns...

The magic of the chest is thus:
  • It contains an extradimensional space, much alike a bag of holding, only the space is limitless. This space is called The Void
  • Within the Void, objects are subject to normal decay as if left on the mercy of nature. So if you leave a sword in it for years, it will rust eventually, and so on.
  • There is virtually infinite amount of old junk in the Void.
  • When the chest is opened, it presents a random assortment of contents from those within the Void, with the few most recently placed objects at sight
  • If you place anything in the chest, the contents shift a little to accommodate it. When you close the lid and open it again the recently placed object will have shuffled deeper into the pile and the other objects in the pile have been randomised again.
  • Opening the chest takes an action
  • You can retrieve any specific object you know is in the chest (ie. those you have seen placed there) in 1d5 rounds by digging through the contents.
  • You can retrieve almost any generic object that is in poor condition by digging through the contents for 1d5 minutes.
  • You can retrieve a randomly determined generic object in poor condition as a bonus action.
  • If you have attuned to the chest, when you place an item in the chest you can designate one item to stay on the top of the junk pile, and thus retrieve it as a bonus action from an open chest.
  • The chest keeps appearing near you when no one is paying attention, no matter where in the world you are.
  • If you are on another plane, it takes 1d5 hours for the chest to find you, and reappear near you.
  • If you have attuned to the chest, you can suppress its teleportation until you choose to want it again, after which it reappears in an unobserved space near you in 1d5 minutes (or 1d5 hours if you are on another plane).
Those are the basic functions of the Deep Chest. In addition the chest is actually sentient, and actually chooses its owner. You may claim ownership, but if the chest disagrees there’s nothing you can do. The chest craves attention however, and if it is currently unowned, it will latch to the first who it deems likely to place objects within. Its alignment is Chaotic Neutral and it may occasionally pull a prank by messing with its basic abilities. The more removed your alignment is from the chest’s, the more likely it is to prank you.

The origins of the Deep Chest and its sentiense lie in the Far Realms, and it is a manifestation of some long lost and forgotten nightmare. It will, very slowly, and very subtly influence its owner to hoard anything, to place objects within and to forever forget them.

Yeah, it is complicated and I know my wording might be somewhat clumsy. But I was going for extremely usefull, a slightly more sinister and a bit creepier still version of Terry Pratchett’s Luggage

I played Hackmaster with a group that talked about bag world. It's a whole other universe inside bags of holding and portable holes. I think the official term is bag zones.

People can access these bag zones and steal from them from within.

We had in Exalted 2e, some kind of extra-dimension where you could put things. The thing was no one else could access them, and if you ended up IN that dimension, you were royally screwed, as you would live forever, but not be able to move or doing anything inside.

My character in that campaign was a human that had been turned almost into a rakshasa (Fae), and she had extra-dimensional pockets in her clothes. We once came across some really powerful artefact, that we decided needed to be kept out of the hands of some of those that wanted it (really powerful demon lords), we had that my character made a del with one of those in the group that could create Geasas with their deals. Basically, I could only retrieve that object with the explicit permission from that other character, or I would suffer a lot of consequences.

The drunk lady I mentioned earlier started off saying I looked like someone famous. She couldn't say who. "The big fat funny guy on In Living Color that did all the yelling" It's been so long since I've seen In Living Color. I had no idea who she was talking about. I'm thinking she meant Chris Farley. I loathe Chris Farley. He was NOT funny in the slightest. I have always hated people saying I look like him. Other than being obese we have nothing in common. I could chalk it up to all white guys look alike but I get it from white people too. She said she was paying me a compliment, I didn't see it that way.

My bad: After research, Jay Leggett (never heard of him) was on In Living Color. His appearance is closer to mine than Chris Farley. I'm so used to that comparison I assumed that's who she meant. Still I don't see being likened to another extremely over weight man as a compliment.
Tell me I look like Chris Pine, Brad Pitt, Ryan Reynolds, Jason Momoa. That's a compliment.

In an actual play podcast of D&D the DM says the word hobgoblin but I hear hobnoblin. I picture goblins in tuxes and tophats with brandy and cigars. After thinking about it, that sounds more like a snobgoblin.

And, speaking of, I’m in an Actual Play Stream this spring! We’ll start on next week’s sunday and play every two weeks. 5e conversion in Mass Effect universe. Unfortunately for you guys, it’ll be in finnish...

Will you share a link anyway? Might be fun to check out.


My mom brought me a World of Warcraft wall calendar. She said it was from my niece and nephew. Those two know me so well. Sadly, January is the only month with Sylvanas Windrunner. And none of Jaina Proudmore.
It's a thoughtful gift. I'm lucky to have them in my life. 😁
