~Ahhh!~ Instantly sends me back when my Amiga 500 used to crash in a spectacular way, displaying all sorts of nonsense sprites, copper bars and pouring scary-ass tones out of the sound chip. Freaked me out.

Does anyone have a good record sheet for factions? I'm going to start a pirate campaign tomorrow, and there will be several fleets that I need to track...

I don't have one, but considering the number of factions I typically have in my games, I think it's a brilliant idea.

Best beloved - "It was a good game last night! It went really well for us."

Me - "Yep."

BB - "Except for, one of the characters died."

Me - "And you slaughtered all of those commoners."

BB - "Yeah, but they kept singing after we killed the monster. It definitely would have been worse if we hadn't. We had to kill them."

Me - "You were the one who summoned that creature."

BB - "There was no way to predict this would happen."

I reflect on the last time the party summoned something. They fluffed the control roll, it murdered the summoner. Before that, they fluffed the control roll, it expanded to five times original size, gained dozens of powers, and melted the stone entrance to the dungeon behind them, sealing them inside.

Me - "Of course not."

Visited this today. Every single case has an ODnD and an Unknown Armies campaign in it. I think the only reason I wasn't cursed by one of the artefacts is that so many of the artefacts are cursed they cancel each other out. For example - in the case labelled "natural things made to look like other things" I found a pair of tiny ballerina models with flies for heads. There was a small silver bottle with a witch in it. One case was for "dealing with dead enemies" - this was where the shrunken heads were kept. There was an ornament made of a single piece of ivory that consisted of eleven nested spheres carved into lace-like lattices that depicted tiny pastoral scenes of Chinese forests. If they had the Lament Configuration in there I would not have blinked. I would probably not have seen it.  http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/

Tonight's game - my first time ever running an RPG with minis. I may have overdone the prep in my nervousness - I've cut out and laminated four ship maps, the largest almost 5 feet long. I dont even think the first session will involve a fight on a ship!

I volunteered at UK Games Expo this weekend, and one of the perks is entry into a raffle stuffed with freebies liberated from all the stall holders - anyone who didn't bring their own tablecloths and needed to use the Expo stock donated some product, as did anyone who was just a champion. I spotted a tasty bundle of Lamentations supplements and OSR zines on the raffle  - all of which I already owned, natch - but I was super happy when the guy who picked it up told me that he'd just bought the Rules and Magic hard-cover that day. His player's aren't going to know what molested them. +James Raggi

I put some mutagenic goo in my campaign and some of my players love it so much they've gained nigh crippling contradictory mutations from rubbing themselves in it. I'll take this as a sign I should be running a swords and lasers and goofballs post apoc, mutant future type game. Which system is best for this? And why do you like it?

The Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG with the gonzo post apoc fanzine Crawling Under a Broken Moon would be my first choice but, I might be a bit biased. :)

My second choice would be the 4th ed of Gamma World (not the GW based on 4th ed D&D).

Great Cantonese restaurant with a wide range of dishes, friendly staff and superb vegetarian options. Excellent all round - one of the best takeaways and Chinese restaurants in the area.

Great little restaurant which does Cantonese takeaway. Haven't eaten at the restaurant, but everyone seemed very pleasant and the takeaway was delicious. No msg and clearly more health conscious than your average Chinese (and the local competition). There was a great range on the menu and the dishes were all distinctive and very tasty. Offers excellent vegetarian options including some tasty tofu dishes, and more authentic flavours than some other local Chinese restaurants.
