I wonder if you could achieve similar results by making your own candles and mixing coconut oil and Flavacol into the wax. :think:

Re: Do you like playing homebrew settings?

The plot wagon is just another term for the railroad. It presents additional dangers when you're running with a pre-existing setting. There's "hey we all saw the movie and know what happens to Alderaan" syndrome and "but Vulcans don't do that kind of thing" syndrome and "we...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

I'm more concerned with how this will affect the Windows version of future Elder Scrolls games. Microsoft has had Xbox exclusives kept off the Windows platform before. HOWEVER, I'd like to think Microsoft wouldn't be stupid enough to have even temporary exclusivity incite backlash from the Bethesda ...

I mean, can you imagine the impact of Skyrim II being exclusive to Xbox? My understanding is any current contract obligations to Sony have to be honored (aka Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo). But going forward? And even if it just means all future Bethesda games hit Game Pass day/date of release while you have to pay $60 to play them on a PS5, that's a big deal.

:wtf: :think: Is this just a tongue-in-cheek reference to The Elder Scrolls VI, or do you actually expect Bethesda to pull a Square Enix and make The Elder Scrolls V-2?

Re: Do you like playing homebrew settings?

One of my players asked me about the cleric situation (who are the gods of the setting, how is the church organized, allowed domains, etc.). I told him that was all up for grabs, he could create it and tell me. He shrugged, said, "I'm not sure I'm up for all that work," and went with a so...

Re: Do you like playing homebrew settings?

The vast majority of the games I've played have been homebrew. I can count the number of campaigns I've played in established settings on one hand. I can certainly say that I tend to have an easier time coming up with character backstory if I can look up details about my character's homeland, but th...

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

I remember seeing a story on TV back in the 80's about a guy in the upper midwest that heat his home with junkmail. He would intentionally get himself on mailing lists and catalog lists and just burn all of it. That is kinda genius! I've got mixed feelings about this idea. On the one hand, free fue...

Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

... And this is just one of the many, many times FX artist squint and look at some ordinary object and find a way to make it into something fantastical. Oh, I get what they do and why they do it. But am I going to let understanding a situation get in the way of an opportunity to snark about it? Nope.
