    I had a dream about rolling a new character, a Svirfneblin Artificer (Alchemist) who got over his sunlight sensitivity by spamming Smoke Bombs for cover, whether or not any allies were in the radius.

    I just wanted to let you all know, he is not going into the character file as a possible replacement if Tusk dies. Especially because, now that I'm awake and looking at the Svirfneblin stats, I see that they don't actually have sunlight sensitivity like Drow or Duergar do, so his whole dumb schtick would be pointless.

    Well, sure, you know that, and (now) we know that.
    But, does the Svirfneblin know that? Maybe he grew up with insanely overprotective parents that warned him that if he ever went out into the sun he'd catch fire and the drow would drag him screaming down into Menzoberranzan, torture him for fun and then feed him to their giant spiders. So, he built his first smoke bombs and experimented with them, discovered he didn't catch fire while under their cover and decided that was science enough for him.

    Sounds reasonable enough.

    One of his Artificer magic items would be a Tinfoil Helm that grants resistance to Psionic damage and advantage on saves vs. Enchantment spells, in that case.

    Seems like a good time for a Beach Episode. Tusk's gonna go school some teens at volleyball. Maybe have Angus back him up. Just the two of them standing right next to the net, looking over the top of it, with their giant hands in the air providing an impenetrable screen.

    I had an ongoing thing in my Planescape game where I'd schedule a combat against Giant Sharks and then promptly remember how insanely fucking murderous they are and bump them down to Hunter sharks. Happened what, 3/4 times?

    Like the time I made an encounter with 4 Ropers.

    These dark times are why I'm glad to have Rage as a class feature. So if I flip out and start biting things and foaming at the mouth, it's just good roleplaying.

    Oh hey, it just occurred to me, I won't be available this Thursday because it is my birthday, and I will be occupied hitting up every restaurant in town that has some kind of deal for that, one after another, until I black out in a pool of my own cake-vomit in a gutter.

    alright, i will still be hanging around the internet if anyone wants to hang out.

    even if you don't i will still be there, you just don't have to be.

    I have just eaten a whole batter fried onion by myself while the other three people the appetizer was supposed to be shared with watched in horror. And then I finished a bigass ribeye steak, a loaded baked sweet potato, my veggies, my brother's veggies, half a shrimp skewer, a brownie and ice cream, all before anyone else was done with their entree. I think I tanked the whole basket of complimentary bread myself too, but it's getting hard to focus my brain that far back.

    I mention this because I feel it should count towards Tusk's EXP total. Since I'm clearly still In Character. Fuckin method roleplaying. Somebody call Tom Hanks, because I think I've got the script for "Mazes & Monsters 2: THE BEAST WITHIN (my colon)" right here.
