    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    There is an old saying - All Rivers are one.... The Auld Grump

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Hmmm, trying to think of a way to synchronize running Razor Coat for both the kids game and the grown ups.... No matter how I look at it, it just isn't going to happen. The kids have maybe two or three months to go, but the Regency Space game is maybe 10% done. (It has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Contrary to my original plans it... has a structure. ) Ah, well, at least I won't go mixing the two games up in my head, this way. The Auld Grump - I am thinking about starting the kids off in the Blight - then forcing them to flee to the Razor Coast when things get too hot for them. (The Royal Family in The Blight is worse than the one in Regency Space.... Which is a mixed bag, mostly horrible.) Speaking of - it seems the crown prince is not above playing innuendo games with halflings that he has met under... dubious circumstances. (It is possible that I grabbed an opportunity to flirt with my wife. ) More nervous making - he knew who they were. (Also, during the time that he was ogling a topless halfling dancing on a table, he was supposedly comatose in his chambers, as he so often is....)

    Well, at my checkup the doctor used a phrase that gives middle aged men the heebie jeebies - colonoscopy.... I've been seeing the doctor a lot more, recently, it's almost as though Megan wants me to stick around for a while... The Auld Grump

    [Pathfinder?] Fantasy Cop Campaign - Thoughts?

    One of the things that will be noted in passing - but multiple times - the street cleaners are all zombies, for the most part of the 'low' races. Goblins, orcs, kobolds, and ogres, but mostly goblin. The city has a law that indigents - people without the funds to pay for burial or cremation, are reanimated, using a shorter version of Animate Dead - it lasts for around six month, then the body falls to dust... and is swept up by other zombies. This includes the victims of the serial killer in chapter two.... And Raise Dead won't work on those reanimated in this fashion - it takes Resurrection or True Resurrection to bring them back. The zombies can only legally belong to the city, but it is not unknown for the city to loan or rent them out for menial tasks. The Auld Grump

    A quick e-mail to the kids about the cops game... their verdict - sounds fun, but they would druther be pirates.... Not complaining - Razor Coast looks fun, and I was looking more at the game after Razor Coast. The only downside is that Razor Coast starts at 5th level - so either start them at 5th, or come up with some adventures to get them there. Kids like playing pirates... who knew?... The Auld Grump - I will be using the same format for the cops game as Razor Coast. And am working out a few opening vignettes.

    [Pathfinder?] Fantasy Cop Campaign - Thoughts?

    I am familiar with the Garrett Files, but the Ravinica M:tG novels are new to me. There is also the Dragon Precinct series by deCandido. Oddly, one of the other inspirations was the computer game Oblivion - with its ridiculously integrated society. Vignette - The Auld Grump - and it will also tell the players a lot about the city.

    RIP Stan Lee

    We watched Big Hero 6 again last night - for the Stan Lee cameo. At least he lived to see his company rise from the ashes - things were very dicey for Marvel for a while - at one point it belonged to Revlon. (The cosmetics firm.) Now... comic books may not be what once they were, but Marvel is dominating the theaters. And people were looking for his face in every movie. Gods rest you, Mr. Lieber - Stan the Man.

    Have her get you a gift certificate for Badger - then wait until they have their Anniversary Sale. They have a crazily good anniversary sale, or at least did last year. The Auld Grump - starts playing the song Badgers, Badgers, Badgers....

    Just what I needed... I started planning out another fantasy campaign. (Megan used to wonder why I ran so many campaigns - it's to make my brain shut the heck up!) Generally as one campaign is drawing to a close, my brain throws up another.... Like ADHD with a schedule to keep. Right now, I have plans for Razor Coast, The Blight, a superhero cop campaign, and now this. The Auld Grump - topic on the general fantasy area - a fantasy cop campaign. A fantasy Dragnet to the Super Heroes Hill Street Blues (with elements of The Sweeney). *EDIT* Megan running her Eberron game is throwing me off - I was running three campaigns at a time, now I am running two - but still have mental slates for three. And I really don't want Megan's game to end. I am having a blast being player for a change.

    The Auld Grump - running to level 16 or so, I think.

    On topic - that GF9 Beholder looks like he is designed to be as close to a flat cast as possible - allowing fewer pieces when spin casting. By comparison, the WizKids Beholder has a lot more pieces, some already glued in place at the factory. But... I still like the GF9 version as the police captain, so.... The Auld Grump

    Anyone else digging the new Oathmark plastics as much as I am

    So, if she weighs as much as a duck... it means she's made out of wood? And therefor? She's... a witch? The Auld Grump - the classics of cinema!

    Moving the Fantasy Cop tangent to its own thread - seems like a fun discussion, but this isn't the place for it. The Auld Grump
