Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

GIFT POSTS

So you may be asking yourself, "ArcSyn, why did you create a new Secret Santa Thread? Captain K closed the old one while we wait for the gifts to start arrive from the selected bunnies." Well, you just answered your own question! The bunnies are on the move and the first of the gifts has begun to arrive!

    Well, imagine my surprise when my wife texts me at work and says, "Did you order something from Amazon? It's ___ _______ _______ ______ and _____ ______ _____." (What, did you think I was going to spoil it this quickly?)

    So, without further ado, pictures! (I tried to make a video, but it ended up super-cheesy and I doubt anyone wants to see it)

    Glad to see they got to you quickly!

    Arcsyn was a Bunny for a poor soul last year, and at my prompting, tapped me to join in on tag-team'ing said giftless individual.

    No, not that way.

    A solid, stand up guy like that doesn't deserve to get coal for Christmas!

    Cheers Arcsyn!

    Hooray for the bunnies! I remember finding those in a used book store one day. I had to buy them. It confused my family all the more because I'm not the biggest fan of comic books.

    The D&D screen is cool as well. I'd have no use for it personally but I like the art style of it. It would look mighty bitchin if it were framed. Although buying a frame, I imagine, would be awkward.

    Grats on the bunnying! I wasn't tapped for the honor this year, but I got to do it last year, so it's all good. The 4E DM's screen is freakin' huge!

    On a related note, how many Santees are still waiting for deliveries that Doc Holiday confirmed were on their way?

    I wish I had the tools installed to stitch the images together properly, but yes, it is GIGANTIC. A friend of mine has the 2.5e screen (I think) and it's maybe 2-3 pages (8.5x11") put together on the long end.

    This thing is like 9x13" and 4 of them put together on the short end. It's gotta be close to 5' long when full extended.

    Ha, the bunnies' gifts are starting to appear! Great news. :)

    I came across a used copy of Attack of The Bacon Robots a while back at a Hastings, of all places. I hadn't read any of these early strips since they were new (yes, I'm old, shut up and deal with it :P ) and it was quite a trip down memory lane. Although some of the strips don't hold up for me at all, because I don't remember some of the games they reference. Still fun though.

    Man, I wonder what kind of person would pick up a PA book and then sell it or trade it. I've got all five volumes so far, and they're all comic gold, especially when combined with the commentaries.

    Although sometimes people why such laughter is coming from the bathroom...

    Nice gifts, I use the DM screen myself and it saves lots of time looking things up plus allows you to cheat without being seen (although as a DM you dont cheat you adjust the rules :))

    Bought myself those comics a while back too.

    Thought I'd give this a bump! Has anyone else got their stuff yet?

    (Ulterior motive: I want to see if my Bunny assignment got their stuff)

    I wasn't sure I should post at all since I'm not an official Bunny-ee, but RoundBoy said I should so here goes:
    Spoiler:

    Thank you RoundBoy and everyone participating in this Secret Santa! I've had some really bad experiences in the past with volunteering work for strangers (the bf calls me an idiot for still doing it) and I've just been completely blown away by the kindness and positivity of the Penny Arcade forum community every step of the way in this Secret Santa--this just completely takes the cake. Thank you all for being such amazing and wonderful people...it's very humbling.

    No, it's the other half of one of those "Best Friend" necklaces that are two pieces of a broken heart.

    Not exactly. One gift that was on its way never made it and is lost in post. It was traveling across the globe, so I can see how this could happen.

    Either way I need someone that wouldn't mind shipping to Finland. Or Norway. Or something, I don't remember.
