I write, I game (any but video, mostly) and design and love game theory, I hypnotize. I try to think critically, but I'm human.

9-FEB CY391 WINTER, BA’AL Keiko couldn’t believe it. This was supposed to be a routine physical. “Pregnant?  You’ve gotta be ding me!” “No, Lieutenant,” the medic said. The girl had an unfathomable look in her eyes. “I’m afraid not. The doctor is going to…

"I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way."

This has interesting metaphysical implications on the Who Framed Roger Rabbit universe. Is this a hint as to where the toons come from?

Do they all have artists? Are they all drawn? Is there a single cosmic artist? We don't see any evidence of toon children, apart from Baby Herman, who isn't a child at all, but who is 50 years old. Do toons occasionally appear out of thin air, "drawn" by some unknown artist (to the WFRR universe, at the very least).

Baby Herman, and Betty Boop, are the only evidence of toons not aging that we can find. But Thumper had a prostate issue... And it's established that before "the Dip" there was no known way of killing a toon.

And "the Dip" is a mix of acetone and a few other paint-removing chemicals. The Dip is the only known method of killing a toon. (Though we witness another in the movie)

We know that toons leave behind paint as forensic evidence - what does this mean?

So, how does Toontown get populated? Do Toons reproduce? If so, where are all the kids? How do we get so many different variations of subspecies? (Duck, cat, bird, rabbit, mouse...) Roger mentions Thumper as an uncle.

Betty's existence (and dialogue) implies some fundamental shift on the nature of the toons in that they became colorized, but she did not. What happened there? I mean, we see Mickey, who we all know started out black and white and moved to color. How do the toons in toontown explain why certain toons were left behind in this shift?

The OSR supermarket analogy is really terrible.

"Hey, guys, I was thinking of inviting everyone over for dinner tonight."

"Really, what were you thinking of serving?"

"The supermarket."

Fall of Magic is exactly what I wanted as a kid. It produces a pocket sized campaign without the sorts of scripts you see in traditional game modules. Fiasco manages this, too. Have I missed anything along these lines? (I am hospital bound these days, so I am out of many loops)

Okay, listen, here's the situation. My brain tumor is back after three years vacation. Well, 2 years eleven months. I seem to be on an every 3 year schedule. My seizures are growing stronger and more difficult to get under control so I am staying inpatient until and unless they get them under control. We don't want a repeat of last week's incident where I get sent home and immediately seize again. I have a surgery planned for the next two weeks. I'm also enrolled in a clinical trial which should help arrest any further progression/regrowth. Things are very much up in the air. I would not be surprised if they keep me in the hospital until the surgery, but they don't want to commit to something like that. You know how doctors get - all cagey.

Unpopular gaming opinion: the Tremere shouldn't count as a real clan, they're just well-organized, uppity Caitiff.

It bothers me that Kickstarter lacks a Google+ share button. But here we go:
