I just witnessed a car that had two bumper stickers on it:

1. The Triforce, and
2. The emblem of the Galactic Empire

On one level I feel this is a person I could share some interests with and potentially be friends. But on another, I think they are maybe a little too morally flexible for my tastes!

As funny as it is a commentary on how few people use g+ I cannot let this space remain blank!

30. Favorite RPG Playing Celebrity

I'm going to cheat and say the entire cast of Critical Role, +Geek & Sundry's cast of voice over artists who stream a weekly game. They are fantastic people to watch!

28. Favorite game you no longer play.

Star wars RPG second edition. Played it in high school, and I miss the shenanigans we got up to on our old rust bucket of a YT-1300.

27. Favorite Idea for Merging Two Games Into One

A few years back, my regular game group had a wacky idea for a campaign based entirely on the Blur Studios short A Gentlemen's Duel, below.

We settled on 18th century France as our backdrop, gave it some alternate history tweaks (notably, the Phlogiston theory was proven to be correct in our world), and gave it some steampunky elements (crude mech technology, etc). We called our campaign Clank, after the in-world term for mech.

For rules, we decided that we would need two separate rule sets, one for what we called Adventure scale, which was our characters getting into hijinks personally, and Battle scale, which was our characters commanding larger forces on a battlefield.

For Adventure scale, we used Shadowrun 2nd edition rules, removed the demi-humans, specified a relatively low magic setting, and reflavored the little bits of magic we kept in a very steampunk way (some more magic was brought in later in a strongly Cthulhian vibe).

For Battle scale, we used Battletech (I forget which edition), largely because it added only two more stats to track, and had a pretty quick and easy turn by turn flow.

The combination of the two systems actually worked fairly well, and the campaign was easily the most entertaining and ridiculous one I've ever had the pleasure of participating in. I miss it!

Ritual of Scrying has been changed slightly from last season, in the aims of reducing the amount of channel flood from #DMQuests .

Selfies and/or quest card pics should be posted to your personal profiles, as stated in the quest instructions document (see pic).

With this change hopefully we can keep actual discussions about the game we all love from being drowned in a sea of basically the same image over and over again, heh.

Yeah mine defaulted to DMs league too. Had to quickly change it, heh.

Today another core book was retired. My PHB's binding has failed, just like my MM's did a few months ago, heh.

Refer to my last comment where I said it's a copy signed by several of the WoTC crew. I'd rather buy a new one than return it. :P

31. Favorite Non-RPG Thing to Come Out of RPGing

That would be a girlfriend that games with me! Wouldn't have met her if I wasn't in my regular Sunday gaming group.

29. Favorite RPG Website/Blog

Dyson's Dodecahedron, by the wonderful +Dyson Logos. I love maps, and I love his art style, so that's a double plus benefit!

I like it so much I became one of his Patrons, and I heartily recommend the same to others! https://www.patreon.com/dysonlogos
