I'm knocking the dust off the minis and battle mat, looking up spells I don't remember, and prepping for a wild night of slaughter and mayhem at the hands of 4th level goblin PCs.
When I stopped playing Pathfinder and Pathfinder Society I was so burnt out that I thought I'd never touch this game again. I'm actually a little excited to do this. Funny how things change. :-)
Would an RPG Secret Santa be of interest to anyone in this community? (If this is already a thing here just let me know!)
If there is enough interest we can make this happen! It would be cool to stalk a fellow DCC fan and then send them a care package of geeky gaming stuff.
I'm just looking for feedback to see if there is interest. I'm willing to handle the administration if others are interested.

Are there currently any patrons available for wizards to choose from besides John Henry or is that it for now?
The devil is down on his luck, pop culture having turned people away from selling their immortal spirits, and he's slumming somewhere where he assumes people are rock-dumb witless marks ready for the eternal harvest.
The very first person he meets is some yokel with a fiddle and he's like "Oh shit, I got this." He rolls on up, all swagger and brimstone and is like "I guess that's good fiddle playing, idiot mortal. Not like the music of the spheres, which I was present for the creation of, but you're okay, you know?"
And this dude, Johnny, is like [EYEBROW RAISE].
So Lucifer Morningstar, thinking he's baited this trap, literally hops up on what is essentially a sales podium and gets all "Look, you dumb-diddle fiddle-frick. I, the actual devil, challenge you to a jerkhole farmhand rap-battle. I win, you suffer eternal torment. You win, this tacky but expensive doorstop." The devil rapidly adds: "It looks a bit like a fiddle, doesn't it? Yeah? Pretty cool, huh?"
This is the god-actually-damned Lord of Lies with the most suspicious prize on earth and this yabba-dabba-dork doesn't even consider his options. There's no bargaining, no questions, no moral quandry. Johnny's just like "That is so metal! Frick yeah, Satan. Buckle your boiling ass to that tree-stump, we're going for a ride!"
So, the devil, one of the angels who pushed his hands into the stuff of darkness and brought forth the building blocks of creation, who successfully defied a vengeful omnipotent space-dad, is like "I got you now, fiddleprick." And busts out a gnarly tune on his fiddle, which may or may not be the golden one, the song isn't terribly clear.
Johnny listens patiently, but the second the devil is done he's like: "Yeah, not bad. For an angel." And then breaks right into the kind of fiddling that Mathias Fiddlius, the Roman Fiddle Despot* himself, would weep with joy to hear.
The devil doesn't try to weasel out of his loss. He doesn't throw a fit. He's like, wide-eyed. He mouths "holy frick" in a breathless gasp and just... holds the fiddle out. He's been beaten and he knows it. He doesn't understand how, but he knows he'll never fiddle on earth again.
I'm interesting in the following topics:
- Tabletop RPGs
- Geocaching (I’m one90proof on geocaching.com)
- Geek culture
- Books (I enjoy many different genres.)
- iPhotography: I'm amazed at the quality of photos that can be taken/edited on a mobile phone.
- Music (My tastes change regularly but my thirst for new music never dies.)
- South Brookley Elementary School
