Go Forth, My Deathy Minions!
DCC World is up for an Ennie for Best Campaign Setting. Last year (it seems so long ago) I lost to an adventure featuring a "Demon Whore." True story. It's good to know that gamers haven't changed all that much since this hobby's inception. :)

But, and this needs to be noted up front, this year we're up against Ptolus.

Yes, that Ptolus. The test setting for 3.5 edition, penned by the author of the same. Suffice it to say, Monte best be getting a front seat for the proceedings.

Still, regardless of where your loyalties might lie, go out and vote. At least be counted.

And as for demon whores, my dear friend Tek once went a few rounds against a DW in a University of Colorado dorm room. Turned into a battle of biblical proportions, culminating in Tek abandoning his loyal toyota pickup truck in favor of a quick get away. We had to sneak back in the middle of the night and jump start the old Squid, whose battery had been drained from leaving the hazard lights on. The Squid took one for the team that night.

The lesson learned: If a DW ever offers you a good time, it's always best to turn her down. It will cost you your soul, or worse, your truck.

Yes. Yes, they do. That's why I always got the skillet.

So does this mean you'll be attending the ENnies this year? If so, I'll be sure to look you up.

Good luck!

Everytime I see "Ptolus" I think "P.O.T.U.S." (President of the United States). ;) My votes been cast. See you at GenCon.

Hahaha. Glad I wasn't the only one Kam :)

Is anyone else concerned that . . .

1) Gary Gygax is almost 70 years old

and

2) instead of Mythbusters and William 'The Greatest American Hero' Katt signing autographs this year at Gencon, we get half the cast of 'Who wants to be a superhero'?

Maybe it's just me.
