Re: MU Podcast 051 - Wacky Gadgets and the Wacko's that Use

It might be a coincidence that the protagonists of the original Final Fantasy game were known as the Light Warriors, and that they had to recharge Orbs (mayhaps muffin shaped...) in order to defeat Chaos and resolve a paradox in time and space that was being exploited by an otherworldly force.

Re: 13 Revelations of the Bloated Tongue

I have come back from a hiatus (basically an insane teaching schedule for the last year) and realized I was the last person to post in the Orne Library section. Let's blow this mother up!

Re: MU Podcast 049- The Ideology of Sandboxing

Oh man, one more video game just came to mind. Cthulhu Saves The World. You can get it on Steam. You play as Cthulhu. He has his powers sealed by a sorceror, and the only way for him to regain them, and thus destroy the world, is to become a TRUE HERO! The game engine is like the old Final Fantasy g...

Re: MUP 044 - What a Twist!

Hey all! I'm just getting around to catching up with some older episodes. I have a RP moment and a twist that I like that I thought I would share. 1. The RP moment was my last regular D&D table. We were playing an evil adventuring party. My character was a Tiefling Bard whose parents had cursed to l...

Re: Television

If it hasn't been said yet, my wife and I just finished the third season of AMC's Hell on Wheels, and we love it. It's rare for her to binge a tv show, but we did about 8 hours of that last weekend.

Re: 13 Revelations of the Bloated Tongue

Murph, feel free! I would love any feedback or ideas on how to play with it or to smooth out any rough edges I might have overlooked or ignored. People are of course free to use it in their games if they wish, or elements of it, or whatever.

Re: 13 Revelations of the Bloated Tongue
