Hollow Eyed Vampire Babies

…yikes!

• Leave me a comment saying “Resistance is Futile.”
• I’ll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions

1. Why “Doc” (been wondering for years, but never asked – I figured it was one of those things that “everybody knows”)?

Actually, very few people know the truth of how I got the nickname. Maybe 7 or 8. Most other people only think they know. One of my favorite answers is that I was a hospital corpsman in Viet Nam. This works on young folks who don’t know I’m not quite old enough to have gone to ‘Nam. Another answer is that I’m a Freelance Gynecologist:)

2. As a GM, what is the single, evilist, most horrible thing you have ever done to a player, that you feel good about having done?

The player was a loudmouthed, argumentative dickhead who just happened to have a 12th level fighter/thief that he really loved. After about 3-4 sessions with this asshole, I began setting him up for a long hard fall. When the fateful session came, he was slowly and systematicly stripped of his magic items, potions, loot, armor, weapons and, eventually, 10 of his 12 levels. Oh, yeah, and one of his eyes. Also, he was cursed. The dickhead player was close to tears. He never played with us again. And there was much rejoicing.

3. Favorite dish containing meat?

Hmmm…that’s a toughy…probably tacos.

4. What is the single most wretched experience you have EVER had within a roleplaying game?

Playing a session of Champions with a group of rules lawyers.

5. Name one art form that you don’t currently practice, but always wished you could.

Assuming music is not included, only visual arts, I’d take almost any, since I cannot even draw a stick figure. To be specific tho, I’d like to be able to draw.

IF music is included, then I’d like to be able to play piano.

Uncle Zombie Wants Your Brain

…for a light snack

Stuff

1: On Saturday, we had a meeting with a couple who have a 6 year old female Basset Hound that they are trying to find a home for. The dog, Lucy, has spent the bulk of her life in a home with people who neglected her most of the time. She would spend hours on end locked in her crate. When I hear about people like that, I want to…well, let’s not get into that.

Anyway, the folks (who had rescued her from the neglectful assholes about 6 months ago) brought Lucy to a park so she could meet us and Winker. She was pretty shy towards Winker (who is herself a very submissive and non-threatening dog), but warmed up to Grace and even more so to me, probably because I got down on the ground to pet her and talk to her.

We agreed that we would pick Lucy up next Saturday for a weekend visit at our house. If all goes well, I expect that Lucy will just stay with us for the duration and Winker will have a new sister.

2: HEY! You Dungeon Delvers better get some comments coming my way on that entry from the 15th or else!

3: The veggie garden is growing nicely and the rest of the garden is Flower City.

4: Hey, here’s a meme I just thought up…

The Ring Tone Meme

Ok, so you’ve assigned individual ringtones to each of your friends/relatives. Who gets what and why?

My answers (if I did such a thing) would be…

My Wife: The X Files theme, cos I always say “Hey, Scully, it’s me” when I call her.

My Best Pal, avylou: The theme from The Avengers, cos she was a fan of the show and Emma Peel

My Buddy, smalley_smoot: The theme from The Man From U.N.C.L.E., a show that he is a big fan of.

My Brother, Kelly: “Working Man”, by Merle Haggard, cos he’s always working.

My Good Friends, Spike & Mary: “Incense & Peppermints” by the Strawberry Alarm Clock, cos they are about as hippie looking a couple as I know.

I could think of more, but I need to go to bed. More bloggage tomorrow.

The D&D Character Meme

Not as close as it could have been, but not too far off the mark.

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Druid (7th Level)

Ability Scores:
Strength-13
Dexterity-15
Constitution-14
Intelligence-15
Wisdom-15
Charisma-16

Alignment:
Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Race:
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Class:
Druids gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it. They hate the unnatural, including aberrations or undead, and destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature, not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience, including the ability to take the shapes of animals. The weapons and armor of a druid are restricted by their traditional oaths, not simply training. A druid’s Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that they can cast.
