I picture most of Desertman's D&D NPCs as some variation of Conan the Barbarian or Ron Swanson.
All the world will be your enemy. When they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.

I have one that is a deaf female elf wizard named Marge who has a pet magical guinea pig named Earl who owns a magic shop in Silverymoon that they frequent often.

I swear they go there just to hear me do, "The Marge voice.".

They are kind of a linked pair. Technically Marge, though Earl is more dear to her than the shop, and actually helps her make decisions.

To all the pricks who spend the entire show holding up your phone to video the whole thing like you need to be videoing the concert/press conference/weigh-ins/whatever it is....put your fucking phones down so people behind you can see.

Any time you look at a crowd now, all you see is a sea of every motherfucker holding up their phone as high as they can over their head filming whatever it is.

Fuck off.

And to the fuckers who are infinitely worse with their fucking stick extensions to put their cameras on the end of them by the hundreds and hold them up even higher than the pricks with their phones....fuck you twice you entitled inconsiderate cunts.

Dude what?

I did this once as a kid. Our gamemaster was Kelvik. This one other guy.... Total douchebag. We'd complete quests and he'd be like "YAR DIE BITCH IM BETRAYING ALL OF YOU" Every level.

So we just stopped. He was our bryan.

We got stuck behind a whole SUV-full of selfie-stickers while driving to Milford sound. Including the fucking driver, I think. First time I had seen and they did not make a good impression.
janeshephard: You really think BadSkeelz understands the concept of Wine In Front of me? This guy shot me as a townie when he felt threatened. The man's a neandrathal.

Miradus: He's not some weird mental abomination. He's just a guy on the internet.

On not being able to see at shows: I am 6'5". Somehow, the one other tall person at a show always stands in front of me.

On filming at shows: I hate people that hold their phones up the entire show and I hate people that film in fucking portrait mode holy fuck it triggers me. That said, I usually make a point to record one or two songs per concert if I am close to the stage and can do so unobtrusively.

On those fucking selfie stick extension poles: FUCK RIGHT OFF WITH YOUR FUCKING SELFIE STICKS YOU CAN'T BRING A THREE FOOT ALUMINUM POLE WITH A WEIGHTED CAMERA ON THE END INTO A MOSH PIT BECAUSE IT TURNS INTO A GOD DAMN MEDIEVAL FLAIL AND BEING CRACKED ACROSS THE FACE WITH ONE FUCKING HURTS

I keep getting ghost drop down menus. Is there something up with my graphics drivers to cause this? How do I make it stop? I'm on Windows 8.


My typing there was because of my phone's nonsensical autocorrect.

I think that my 3.92 GPA has a lot more to do with the fact that my girlfriend is an English major more than it has to do with me being smart'ish.
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I cycled across a lady today who looked like an exact replica of Newman, only female.

That poor girl.

I hope you at least called her an ambulance.

depends on your degree
Now you're looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.

'Artesian' is more relevant to water than 'artisan' is...

I agree D-man, and it's not just at movie theaters. Mid-conversation, walking, eating, driving (eek) ...it's pretty bad nowadays. I take the bus to work and most of the time 70-80% of people's entire focus is entirely glued to their phones.

Our generation truly needs to look up every once in a while and experience life first-hand.

Proper phone etiquette. Super simple stuff.

One thing I'd like to see in arm is more people focusing on how to make the game intriguing, by filling
it with murder, betrayal, and corruption, instead of arguing about how combat isn't powerful enough.

I think he was talking about concerts and not movie theaters.

If someone has their phone out during a movie, for longer than it takes the on-duty usher to get in their and glare at them, you're at a shitty theater.

If two sorcerers have mudsex, and the woman gets pregnant, could she kill the child by gathering preserver style?

your first mistake is assuming that i'd be thinking about one of them being a woman
