I sliced out the middle kid's picture and used it as my character portrait for a Chaosium Cthulhu game a while back. One of the best photos I've ever found for a character.

Re: Time for Another Alignment Thread!

I interpret lawful to mean that a character holds a deontological code of ethics. Chaotic characters are contextualists or consequentialists. The actions necessary in any given moment, to a chaotic character, are so heavily influenced by the intricacies of the situation that any rigid set of rules ...

Re: Time for Another Alignment Thread!

Law vs. Chaos should not be understood within the paradigm of a particular society's rules. A lawful character believes she has a duty to uphold some rules unconditionally, as they believe them to have some intrinsic value. I.e. A character may believe that the killing of innocents is wrong, even if...

I expect to be attending this year. Alas, how I weep for missing the years of free beer, but I'm still excited to meet the community.

Re: 2 player Co-op PC games?

Total War is pretty in depth. I've actually been playing Medieval 2: Total War all day, and as a guy who really likes military tactics, it's a fun game. But it also has a pretty steep learning curve. Tomb Raider Guardian of Light is an exception to the rule. Most Tomb Raiders are single player, that...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

FFXVI is about a bunch of LARPers. It's the only way to explain why the main cast always look like they just left a Hot Topic, whereas everyone in the background is dressed business casual. How does basic produce get transported when monsters prowl the roads at night? Easy. There are no monsters. T...

Re: 2 player Co-op PC games?

Stardew Valley has a multiplayer mod. River City Ransom Undergrounds is a good retro beat'em up. It can be difficult, but it has a lot of charm. The Metal Slug series was a quarter eater on arcades, but there's no penalty for running out of mans and continuing mid mission, so it might be a good pick...

Re: Question for the Community

I have some experience in planning these kinds of events, and I've found the easiest way to handle it is to establish a Paypal for participants to pay their way in and place an order ahead of time. Then handle the rest like catering. The party shows up, the staff were notified in advance what to pre...
