  1. The Bones 4 Kickstarter chatter thread. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. I just read an article 'showcasing' the 40 worst Liefeld drawings (in the author's opinion), and now I feel like my brain just threw up all over the inside of my skull. Huzzah? --OneBoot :D
  3. Posts about bizarre comic book character art styles have been relocated here for further discussion: (that picture is so weird, yet oddly fascinating... ) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Google Hangouts Chatter thread

    Oh absolutely; our Pathfinder group clubbed LOTS of people last night! We also met people too, some of whom didn't want to kill us.... Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Bleh. I made the mistake last night of writing down all of the things on my mental to-do list in an attempt to clear my brain for sleep. Usually this is pretty effective; however, this time it backfired on me and had the opposite effect, since my list stretched over 3 sides and part of a fourth of the 4" paper squares I use for notes. Which only served to underscore the fact that wow, I actually DO have as much stuff to do as I thought I did (including several things that were mired in the back of my mind and were dredged up by the exercise). Soooo...I'm only just now getting to bed after taking care of a few of the easier things, then playing ESO for a couple of hours in a vain attwmpt to unwind. It's 9:30am. Simply ridiculous. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    ReaperCon 2018 Admission Tickets Available Now!

    Are game submissions open yet? If so, how do I submit one? The "Submit a game" button on the Reapercon site takes me to the game policies page, but doesn't have a form to fill out or a further button to click. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    Oh absolutely, I love punny names! In our current campaign alone there's the NPC Rock Hardabs, the most manliest fighter you ever did see (just ask him; he wrestled 5 bears at once and won!), the Dewey Cheatum and Howe law firm (though I stole that one from Three Stooges), Louis Torus aka Big Louie the minotaur crime boss, and Obnox the Belligerent (a most ornery goblin, named by MrBoot). Another one is the name I used variations of for my character in every Quest for Glory game growing up. There was Fred B. Nimble the thief, Fred B. Wise the wizard, and Fred B. Strong the fighter. 8-year-old me was pretty proud of that name, lol. In a Paziocon celebrity gaming panel, one of the players had Garamond the Bold, a wizard whose spells were all called by different fonts. The only one I remember is Comic Sans, which was really Hideous Laughter. I've wanted to use this concept at some point, but the opportunity hasn't come up yet. Related is a campaign I was in several years ago that started with just me and one other player, with MrBoot GMing. Both of us kept forgetting all of the place names, so one night we pulled out the map and a sheet of paper and asked him to describe each of the places. We then proceeded to give them all names we could remember, like Narnia, Transylvania, Mordor, Viking Land, Lake Enchilada, etc. This was both surprisingly effective and highly entertaining, and over time began bleeding over into people names too. I recall one session where we were slapping a prisoner around and demanding he tell us what he knew about Sriracha (I don't remember what the original name of the bad guy was). Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. [MOD] Based on that, I will be unpinning this thread soon, since once the paid-only thing kicks in, the current map will become locked after 100 views. If anyone else wishes to create a new map using a different service, feel free to do so, and please inform a mod directly so we can pin the new thread. [/MOD]

    FYI, I contacted Kit last night, and image uploading should work now. EDIT: I really should refresh the page before posting, lol. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Agreed. Duuude! I LOVE that show! I need to get back to it, I stopped after catching up to the current episode several months ago. And yeah, Froppy is AWESOME! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Forum CSS change? Search bar wackiness

    Alchemist is correct; that's a feature, not a bug. On the old version of the forums, it would say 'Private' instead of a date, which was more clear. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Me neither. Back when Bryan did a lot of it, I got a bit more of an understanding about what goes on behind the curtain, and just how headdesk frustrating a lot of it is. But then, based on the stories the programmers in my family tell, misbehaving code is one of the universal constants. If something in your code isn't doing weird stuff, it's because you haven't found it yet. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Why yes, the despairing screams of the innocent are a hot currency these days! ...... Oh...I said that out loud, didn't I? Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Yep, as David said, that's 'above my pay grade' as it were. Anything involving the actual software mechanics of the forum isn't something a moderator (me, Froggy, Darsc, Talespinner, etc.) can affect. We can move, remove, merge, and split threads and posts, plus a few other things, but that's it. Administrators (such as ladystorm, kit, Bryan before he left, etc.) have access to tools within the software itself to change some things around (such as turning features on or off or changing the look of the boards). However, if it's the software itself that is misbehaving, that's a Kit issue, since he can work on stuff "under the hood." Unrelated general note: mentioning an actual mod using the @ feature makes it both easier and faster for us to notice issues and requests for assistance, instead of a generic request for a mod. This wonderful board is a big place and there's a lot of posts to look through! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
