Inspiration Goat: Star Trek Discovery, thinking about stories that are going to hit us hard in a post-Covid world.

I'm running Five Torches Deep in the Planescape setting. The group is an Outlands Expedition Team, deputized by the Lady of Pain, designed to go out into the planes and make sure imbalances don't get out of hand.

So far the players have dealt with a Winter Wolf Cult in the Outlands, a god-feud in a Portal Town of Xaos and the Mists of Ravenloft trying to get its tendrils on a newborn world.

Digging the character design and will grab the comic hoping that there's finally a Grant Morrison comic where the execution meets the concept.

First Look: Superman & The Authority by Grant Morrison & Mikel Janin

Did I write up The Authority and Superman (as one of DC's Trinity) for Marvel Heroic?

Yes, I did.

Will I write up the new group with milestones and such?

Yes, I will.

Got the bingo board set up with the players for our next Thursday night session.

Bingo XP Variant link:

What makes a good bingo square?

Not TOO specific

Can be attempted by any character

Not always about success or failure

Highlights creative problem solving and character exploration

When you read it you think, "Yeah, THAT is the kind of shit I want to see in our game."

The Godroads finally made it from my notebook to the table, all because a friend at the table tried something wild and unexpected. :)

You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father.

Your father was seduced by the dark side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.

A certain point of view?

Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.

Luke: That's horseshit.

So, you've hit 0 HP with special guest-star, Asmodeus and the Pit Fiends...

Daydreaming about the upcoming Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft

For Ravenloft as a gothic-high-fantasy sandbox, sprinkle in a touch of Godbound...

Sometimes it is Friday night and you find this picture of a pug wrapped in a blanket and so you decide it'd be funny to put a lightsaber on the blanket and send it to a friend who uses every RPG to play Star Wars and then it takes way too long to get the letter gradient where you want it and by the end you kind of like the name, Pug Muddle and you aren't sure if it is a joke anymore.

Thank you, @kensanata

Thank you, Jay Dragon whose text for the Wanderhome Quickstart inspired the words below.

Thanks, folks.

...and Jim said something about a noble house with an owlbear as its heraldic beast. “They’d have thrown off their shackles from the indenture of some awful cabal of wizards.”

In which I remember fondly a thief who didn't exist and misremember other elements of an afternoon three decades past.

You know, one of those nights where one of the players says they are going to party their hard earned gold away so you figure out a way to use that weird coin/dice system you have in a notebook somewhere with a carousing table.
