    This Week in Geek History


    This week I'm the GM (player? NPC?) trying to organize and then referree epic conflicts.

    Curtis Mayfield is playing R-E-S-P-E-C-T on a Les Paul in a Battle of the Bands duel against Louis the XIV who's plucking Bjorn Borg's tennis racket!

    Johnny Depp is serving roast Donald Duck at a Macabre candlelight dinner to Padme Amidala while Nero is being stabbed in the corner!

    Eliott and ET are floating their flying bicyle down the Suez canal while Sadat reigns RPGs (rocket powered grenades?! role playing games?!) from saddles tacked onto Ziggy Stardust's Spiders from Mars!

    GAAAAAH!

    Meanwhile Steffan fills my head with GURPS and Fudge!

    Anyway, help.

    Tales from Ye Olde Arkham Arms

    Beware the Margreve!

    The Whateley clan has opened a portal to an alternate dimension horror (again). Somebody said Lavinia called it 'Dunwich' but I coulda sworn I heard 'sandwich.' Anyway, there are rumors of epoch-spanning gods rising from the Deep, dire wolves that howl the soul right out of you, even creatures from space. Whatever, she's always been crazy.

    But what I know for sure, there is nothing more deadly in the Old Margreve than the massive black panther that stalks there...

    The Lucky Lockup Roundup

    Balmora Press, Vvardenfell

    Things have been slow for a long time in Balmora. Yeah the ash is gone, but Khajiits still waddle like ducks, we have playdough for hair and flat noses on blockheads. We keep hearing about Skywind, a fresh look and new interest from outsiders, but our hopes wane...

    We did finally have a little excitement last week.

    A beer-swilling fighter/mage killed several Thieves' Guild members in search of "Ryuutamas" held by his "Ryuujin" or Dragon-Person. We don't know what the heck he is talking about and told him he was in the wrong plane. As he escaped the authorities, he insisted he would find his true 'honobono-ness' (whatever that means). If you see anyone fitting this description, please let House Hlaalu know. Here is a composite sketch:



    Truth be told, we are most frightened that he will open up the plane from his world to ours and allow his familiar into RPGG:



    Now that, would be truly terrifying.

    caught a gnome putting ice in her whiskey (can you believe that?) so she cast Dimension Door and sent the poor little blighter to Crusoe's Cursed Island for punishment. Unfortunately for her, a patrol of Cowled Wizards was outside, saw the flashes and have arrested her. soblue

    Some guy -- although sometimes it's a girl -- named CHARNAME is doing fetch quests all over Amn to raise money to rescue Marion and his sister from Spellhold. He's accepting donations and quests, any help would be appreciated.

    The fence sitter
    Touching all
    Embracing none
    Spin me upside‐down,
    I yet remain the same.
