Reclaiming my geek

you know one of the best things about having a daughter? Goofy sense of humor. Start off with some comment about my coffee getting spilled on the ground. scarvesandsmiles and start riffing off each other for a couple of minutes, we ended up with this idea for a dnd encounter:

the fight starts, with some low-level minion/henchmen(DM starts a 15 minute timer). After the timer goes off, the big bad villain, a double tailed albino mermaid rides in on…

Starbuck, the latte dragon. Breath weapon is spraying it’s enemies with a stream of scalding hot coffee.

the villain is a white girl who arrives 15 minutes late with Starbucks!

I responded in kind to what was a rather dumb and crass message to begin with-and if you have a dick or not it doesn’t matter-you’re still acting like one.

caps lock, hiding behind anon. Assumption of manhood CLEARLY off base.

As much as I’m a huge Next Generation fan, TOS has some pretty fantabulous episodes and aspects that are just as great

An opinion without 3.14159 is just an onion.

Guys this isnt even funny. Please stop.

that took too long to figure out

today was a comedy of errors. Spent 7 hours fighting with replacing a bathroom sink, got a flat tire, had coffee spilt(Wasn’t me who did it). At least I got free dinner. I’m not ready for bed, but, my body is set on insisting. Wonder how long I can hold out.

Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”

This movie is super underrated.

Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?

I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.

hEY FUCK YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY

DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE

D&D Fifth Edition First Impressions

manicenthusiasm:

I just ran my first real session of D&D Fifth Edition. We used the characters and adventure from the starter set. It went very smoothly.

In about three hours, the group learned the rules, picked characters, killed some goblins, set off on an adventure, outwitted some traps, killed more goblins, tamed a wolf, brutally interrogated another goblin, and explored the outskirts of a cave network. I imagine that much less would have happened had we been playing Fourth Edition.

My only real compliant is that first level characters seem too strong. I prefer characters to be more vulnerable at first, but that’s just a matter of personal preference. It seems like a flexible system and could support of verity of styles, and I look forward to playing more.

what is with DMs who want wimpy characters? I want to run a game with strong characters. I’m planning on starting a game. I’m gonna lead it with “Y’all ready to BAMF this?”

Fandom is, essentially, the collective refusal of thousands of people accross the world to be passive about the media they are exposed to.

I just wish people from the outside would realize how great it truly is.

Feeling pleased with myself.
I was in a shopping centre, waiting for my mum, and I had this idea. I ran into this clothes shop and said to the assistant
“Excuse me, what year is this?”
And she was like,
“2014, are you OK?”
So I went
“YES! IT WORKED! WE DID IT!”…
