Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01am Mr. Pumpy:

Hello, I must be going...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02am Mr. Pumpy:

Hey, Darren and skelocrew. Thanks so much. Hangin' for a bit, but have big plans tomorrow, for the first time in a couple of months!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04am mariano:

'Sup, Pumps? Gonna join in the D&D campaign with Handy tomorrow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04am Darren:

Plans?! I remember the days...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06am Mr. Pumpy:

mariano...yeah, you in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09am mariano:

Don't think so, Mr. Pumpy - I really want to join in some day, but it's hard to block out 6 hours because even in quarantine my sched can be unpredictable. Would love to play 1st Edition rules again, they're what I grew up on.

So sorry, where are my manners? Hi Darren and crew (who's on the board right now?), everyone! I imagine our European friends will be joining soon.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:11am Handy Haversack:

Man, I gotta go to bed. But I also need to come down a bit from all this writing stuff down.

One more little drink?

Hey, Darren, everyone! I think this is actually my first time here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14am Mr. Pumpy:

Bummer, man. Anyhow...that would have been awesome! Mariano...sent ya an email contact thingee. Tomorrow is my first day, swing by and help me pedal sausage off a cart I may have acquired in absentia last week. Handy has some crazy shite going on over there! I'm confused and I like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14am Mr. Pumpy:

@Handy...do it. Just a little nip. I won't feel as bad for being a deril right now. I am really turning this night of freedom into something!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:15am Handy Haversack:

Very excited to have you jump in, Mr. P! mariano, you are, of course, always welcome. But it's also not going anywhere, so no pressure at all!

Enjoy it, Mr. P.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:16am Handy Haversack:

That sausage cart was so confusing ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17am mariano:

Do it for us, Handy, take that drink! So, regarding the campaign, I'm guessing that at least optimally everyone should be available for the duration? Be kind of a drag to have to cut out then my character becomes a zombie. Or everyone picks on him in my absence.

Cool Mr. P, I'll keep an eye out for your message!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:20am Handy Haversack:

@mariano, actually quite the opposite, esp. now in plague times. Not everyone can make it every time. So someone else plays your character in addition to their own, does their best, and buys you a drink if you die on their watch.

Ditto: being avail. for six-hour stretches. We're all just doing our best to have a fun thing.

The characters are mostly evil, but the players are good as gold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22am mariano:

Speaking of D&D and sausage carts, do y'all know the band Future of the Left, which is basically what Mcluskey turned into? They have a song about RPGs and sausage on a stick, coincidentally enough (for later viewing: www.youtube.com...)

Woody was a wizard
Janie was an elf
And when they got together
They only ate sausage
Sausage on a stick, yeah!
Sausage on a stick, yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22am Mr. Pumpy:

@mariano, I'm paraphrasing Handy here, but the way he put it to me is none of the characters are going out of their way to save a baby unless it's encrusted in gems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23am Mr. Pumpy:

That's right...ha! Travels is one of my favorite records. Dropped some coin for the vinyl a year or two back. So damn tasty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am fred:

Hello Darren and all
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:25am Handy Haversack:

Ha! And that was me paraphrasing my friend J who was just trying to explain to me why they let that particular child get sacrificed to ... oh, who can remember. That if I'd wanted her saved, I should have covered her in gems and magic items.

My friends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am Mr. Pumpy:

Good times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am mariano:

Interesting, Handy - an evil party. I usually go chaotic good but it might be good (evil?) to get outside that comfort zone. Glad to see you know FotL, Mr. P.

So, I wouldn't be surprised if either of y'all have read Dark Dungeons, the Jack Chick pamphlet/comic dealing with the eeee-villes of D&D. It's a real hoot. The iconic panels are from when one of the characters kills herself when her character dies, leaving behind a note saying "It's my fault Black Leaf died. I can't face life alone." friendlyatheist.patheos.com...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:30am Handy Haversack:

Black Leaf rises!

is my favorite grafitto.

Anent alignments: I don't take them quite as seriously as 1e AD&D wants you to. It's a small world, and it smells bad. Most of them are responding to the pressures of the moment.

But, no, they should not write GOOD on their char. sheets!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am Mr. Pumpy:

I have not...sounds interesting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32am Mr. Pumpy:

Perhaps the char. sheets can say (refuse to specify)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:33am Handy Haversack:

Yeah, Mr. P, that is my feeling about a lot of spots on the char. sheet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am mariano:

Alright Handy, set me up with the paperwork then! Let's email if that's easier. That way I can at least create a character or get myself familiar with background material.

Oh, and I didn't realize they'd made a movie out of Dark Dungeons: I guess it was inevitable given the never-ending epidemic of mass suicides and demon possession among D&D players. Sad really. I'm sure folks are way ahead of me on this, but it'd be fun to pack the movie house where it's playing full of D&D nerds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37am mariano:

Bangor is in Wales, no? And hi fred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am mariano:

Well I'll be damned, there's a Bangor in N. Ireland too.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:39am Handy Haversack:

@mariano: I am *about* to crash for the night. You want to join in tomorrow or just get the info? Either way, I'm going to forward you what I sent Mr. P since I don't have the energy to craft a personalized message just right at this second!

Also one in Maine.

Psyched you're interested! Just ... be warned -- you're gonna lose a lot of characters before one sticks, odds are.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am mariano:

Oh sorry, just the info please Handy, no need to personalize. Can easily wait till tomorrow as well. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Mr. Pumpy:

Alright fellas, I'm signing off. Tomorrow is another day! May you sleep well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Mr. Pumpy:

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:45am Handy Haversack:

No worries!

E-mail sent. But I gotta crash now, friends. See/talk/hear you tomorrow, maybe!

Darren, I have been digging it! Thanks so much!

Night, pals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am mariano:

Ok, 'night Handy and Mr. P!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am fred:

Postal workers are doing such a necessary job, and they're usually much better at it than any private delivery thing. It's a shame some want to drive USPS into the ground
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am fred:

Yeah YMO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am mariano:

That's the GOP game, fred: break the USPS's (and other public institutions') legs then fault them for not being able to run a marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30am fred:

@mariano: that playbook works in France too: privatize any part of the postal service that breaks even, then blame what remains for being poorly run and in need of drastic austerity (applies to mass transit, health care, energy, you name it)
