The setting for my game features semi divine monarchs of various animals, the Wolf King, the Bear Queen, etc. One of the early jokes in the campaign was that there are 100 different Kings and Queens of the Housecats, all of whom consider themselves the one true ruler and all the rest impostors.

Last night, one of the One True Cat Kings gave his blessing to the party's nine foot tall Half Giant Barbarian. Here's the move:

When you Parlay with a creature larger than you, you can use your small size and adorability as leverage, even if you are otherwise a complete jerk.

Sounds like a little bit of "Princess Mononoke" with the Animal Lords.

So there's a famous minimalist/post modern/whatever song by John Cage called 4'33" that's just four minutes and thirty three seconds of silence. I own an mp3 of it, because of course I do. It's a longstanding personal joke that when I do set lists for burlesque shows, I'll use it to break up the sets.

Anyways, lately I've been adding a bunch of copies of it to my Doing Other Stuff playlists in itunes, so that when I listen to said playlist on shuffle it will take a break for four and a half minutes every few songs. Like a commercial break, without commercials. (I suppose one could just get up and pause the music now and then, but this happens automatically without me paying attention to it.)

Which means that if I keep this up, before too long an mp3 of silence will end up the most played song in my itunes collection.

That's weird.  I thought the whole point of 4'33" was the audience noise.  A studio version seems... odd.

Now that the drawing is done, it's time to scan stuff in and put it all together in photoshop!

Hey you can listen to how terrible my voice sounds and how many times I say "um" and how squeaky my chair is! And you can look at my photoshop while you're doing it!

So tonight's Dungeon World game included a sad drunk and high and masturbating fallen paladin, a giant forcibly bathing a wizard, dwarven diplomacy, elven betrayal, secrets revealed, violence avoided, kicking the paladin in the nuts, fire elementals, and the forging of a magic sword. That all happened.

EDIT: Postponing for a day. Having a rough health day today.

I'm going to try this whole hangouts on the air thing for making the next Clockworks page. Come join me and watch me make a comic and listen to some music and chat with other people and occasionally me when I'm not busy drawing stuff.

I took this screenshot of the map of storm over the midwest, and then looking at it decided it would look like a cool D&D world map. 10 minutes in photoshop later, here we are. Cities on the top map are wherever real cities are in the bottom map. I didn’t name anything or set the scale. Feel free to use this in your home game.

+Shawn Gaston Cool map. That is really clever. But then you are an artist and I'm not. :)

Gamer Geekery Question Time!

Over the weekend, I helped put on a big event, I came away with the following scrapes and bruises:

Tore the skin off of the back of both feet from walking in my Docs too much without properly thick socks.

Two mystery cuts on my left index finger that I have no idea the cause for.

A giant welt on my right lower back from going down the 10 story slide at the City Museum (twice!)

Probably the swine flu or something from Saturday's afterparty.

Some pretty major fatigue after working the festival about 30 hours between Thursday and Saturday and then staying up ridiculously late partying every night.

Burned my pinky draining boiling water from spaghetti last night. (Not technically work related, but the fatigue definitely helped cause it so I'm going to count it.)

So, in your system of choice, how would you model that? How much damage did I take in hit points/fatigue levels/wounds/whatever?

Yeah, a level of fatigue from bumps and bruises and a level from exhaustion feels about right.
