Hello world. This is Greg Vrill speaking.

1. I'll take the 5th here, as I've been scolded before for cussing on these forums.

2. I just finished "Topology of a Phantom City" by Alain Robbe-Grillet. It's the same scene, re-imagined in many different ways chapter by chapter. It's sort of about women. Not for everyone, but I like his style, which is sort of like reading art criticism texts.

3. Well I guess I'd have to say my favorite NPC was this brilliant Master Alchemist, name of... hmm, what was that guy's name again?

Sure, I'll do as I say...

1: Gnome. Deep gnome.

2: Not the last, but recent and of note: "You Shall Know our Velocity" by Dave Eggers. After reading some of 'A Heart-breaking Work of Staggering Genius' I went into this very skeptical. YSKoV is a very nice book. Almost disarming in some ways. It feels like there's some Salinger and maybe Joyce in it, but something unique. It's not smarmy imitation. I'd read his next.

3: James T. Swill III.

1. Troll.

2. Spartacis, for history class.

3. Korvenis Wrathtree, of course.

Hello!

1: Hobbit, of course. Gnomes are for punting purposes only.
2: I read John Dies At The End. Beyond brilliant.
3: My paladin from childhood, Maerik Tyrcolis Valice.

I should list some background before I answer the questions. My posting name is a ridiculously overpowered female drow cleric fighter or something from back when being overpowered was cool. I SHOULD have used the name King Tut, which many of my fellow posters are familiar with.

King Tut is a concept that arose from gaming late night with one too many bottles of Mountain Dew and cheap pizza. There was a box of Bugles (yum!) on the table, and side panel showed the food pyramid (or w/e it's called, 6 servings of grain, 2 servings of meat, etc.). Well, I decided that the undead remains of King Tut resided in this pyramid and that if you knocked on his door (which, as you approached the door, you would notice a pile of shiny new halberds laying just outside the door - odd, as well as a Do Not Disturb Until Xmas sign hanging from the doorknob- also odd. Lastly, a pyramid with a door, nevermind a doorknob? Odd yet again), he would come flying out sideways (his torso unusually long, his legs (if any) hidden deep within his pyramid) screaming like all the 9 Hells, holding a halbard. But, he was SO furious, that he simply couldn't use the hallbard. He would throw it on the ground, engorged with fury, and go for the old claw/claw/bite. If he killed you, he dragged you inside to eat you, and closed the door. If not, he simply closed the door. Either way, he always left a Do Not Disturb Till Xmas sign on the doorknob (you should have listened!). Anyway, that night we got kicked out of the session, drove to my partner in crime's ex-girlfriend's apartment, where we failed to say anything when she opened the door, and then, sadly, closed the door. I forgot what happened after that.

So, in my mind, though my handle says Cyndre, King Tut (KT) types these words with his bony undead Egyptian talons (or perhaps the point of a halbard? You'll never know).

1. Neither. Undead Egyptian prince. Pleased to meet you.

2. I honestly do not like reading. I've done enough of it in school. Wait, strike that. Wayfarers Smile

3. The name of my favorite entity (neither a PC nor an NPC) was Big Ben. Big Ben was an (unusually large) six-sided die that was rolled to determine the results of your typical search (A musty room? I'll search around, hoping to find a ridiculously overpower...I mean, candle or something).

If I recall correctly:
1: Was "Uh oh, encounter!"
2: No idea
3: No idea
4: "It's a dragon!"
5: "Magic Sword!"
6: "BIG BEN"

Alternately, the map that we used for the Narbohring campaign was my favorite. La Badlandsa, so nice. The Great Plains of Leaping Norseman. Truly infuriating for the DM, and all my modifications were utterly non-value adding.

Oh, I did like the "Metal Druid" that I played in the last campaign. A druid that hated trees, animals, and all that stuff. This Metal Druid built androids and then imbued them with some sort of animatory power (Summon Woodland Friend? Pass. How about I build a poisonous robotic scorpion and it becomes sentient).

---
Chickens, page 425 of Wayfarers, is missing a key rule. If you roll a natural 6, you roll again and keep a cumulative total until you do not roll a 6. Rolled a 13 to hit, 19 damage, etc. Helps the trash talk.

Metal druid rocked the house. That should be a real class, damn it.

(Eh, it probably is somewhere, and I'm sure a million steampunk games have their variants. If you can't be original, at least be hilarious.)

Thanks for flashback, Cyndre. I think that was one of the funniest moments of my life. I know it was very late and we had tears in our eyes laughing. -I don't think that moment at the door was ever explained until now.

Ah, long live KT.

1. Hobbits.

2. Naked by David Sedaris.

3. Zindle Braddock, who never let anyone forget that he graduated top of his class from the Midvale Academy of the Liberal Magical Arts, double major in Evocation and Bardic Knowledge, captain of the fencing team. Evoker/Bards weren't exactly a good idea mechanically in 3rd edition, but he was fun to play. He had a talking skull named Murry who didn't like him very much, but Zindle insisted they were best friends and kept him in a bag of holding, because that's what best buds are for.

Edit: I should mention that I really liked Apprentice Steve. Poor guy, that was a great blog he had.

Ha, your guy sounds similar in spirit to some of Swill's PCs.

So, Nabokov has this theory that the 'man in the macintosh' in James Joyce's Ulysses is Joyce himself. It's not totally uncommon for authors to slip themselves in to their books, either overtly or incognito.

Anyway, Apprentice Steve? Was ME dammit. Well not me Greg Vrill, because me/Vrill already had his/my own thing and blog going on. Eh, well, it's sort of complicated, but I still can't believe you offed him Grayfaced. That was so cold.

1: Hobbit or Gnome?

Screw demi-humans. I use em to test the sharpness of my blade.

2: What was the last good book you read?

Good book? you mean the bible, I read it every day.

3: What was the name of your favorite NPC or PC?

Mr. Bolar, he's so in side sports, makes me a cool elitist elder gamer.
