Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

 

No, never happened...ever. Focusing on April Fool's Day & Easter does eliminate any 15th of the month questions; SO fire away with the Foolery & Bunny stuff.

Nope.  Not once.  I saw some great RickRolls, immediately identified them, and smiled as others fell for the trap.

If you were in charge of your very own Planet...

 

Question, April 5: Would you rather be Pope, Emperor, Dictator for Life or High King??

Arise, ye prisnoers of starvation!

Arise, ye wretched of the Earth!

 

D: none of the above. Being a tyrant/autocrat is not one of those things I have ever considered becoming.

I think we, humanity that is, would do quite well without the scum that aspire to such positions.

I would be a Dictator for exactly 5 minutes, then open the gates and yell:

 

You're freeeeeeeee!!

Honestly, I would rather be the guy behind the scenes, but if forced to choose between these two (I personally don't see much difference between the last three, realizing of course that dictator comes with a sense of "not good", but that's a different issue) I guess I would choose Pope and try to use my influence to steer people toward being better. I think it can be a lot easier to use faith to change people's beliefs, perspectives, etc., than legislation or decrees.

Just the opposite.  Anything but Pope.  The Church of the true popes did away with that title.  But if I say too much it will get sent to Beekeeper's

I don't know that I'm well-equipped for any of those positions.

High King implies that your planet has lesser kings. 

 

Dictator implies that your position is not necessarily hereditary. 

 

Emperor kindof assumes an Empire, and perhaps an army of robot minions or something. 

 

Also, Empress, & High Queen, are options... ...I think Dictator is gender neutral (Dictatress ?:unsure:

I'd go for something more grandiose like, The Supreme Being or The All-Powerful One.

 

But if I have to choose from the options provided I'll be an Emperor.

Given that it's my planet...  Guardian/Protector. ^_^

 

Treehouses galore! .... And ancient trees of course. 

 

My planet also implies it wouldn't have all that many people on it... At least in my chunk of it all.

These all seem like rather hard work.

 

I'd happily settle for Billionaire Playboy. (And with that much money, no one will make smartass comments about the last syllable.)

Completely understand, and I too was trying to be careful to avoid sending the discussion elsewhere.

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I was reading them all as "The Ultimate Political Authority". Obviously though there are good monarchs/emperors and bad ones, etc., and the title of dictator does tend to imply some nastiness, so I certainly wasn't trying to imply that they are all the same in outlook, etc.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, December 2018 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (UK / Europe Time: some Zero Dark Thirty hour for US time zones)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday. 
       
      December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.

      Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge.
       
      This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. 
       
      Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.
