This is basically me after many things. I can't be the only one, I'm sure.

Daylight Savings Time is in effect where I live, so not only will the comic be updating an hour later depending on where you live, but the site time is now correct to Pacific Daylight Time as well.

Session 6 of Fallout is Dragons is up! This one's full of antics.

Wonderful comic as usual, Spud. I loved the use of Pinkamena there to indicate her paranoia. Of course, I don't really worry about that, since I know you guys would tell me if I crossed a line, or if I screwed up. Case in point, Raxon and China. You know it took a heck of a lot of rewriting to make him not a complete monster. I fixed it, though. Now he's just a prick to them because they cheated. No getting paid in schoolgirls... You know, that sounds much, much worse out of context, and I am very glad that it has been rewritten now. That's the kind of thing that would probably get me on a watch list, but what wouldn't these days? Now he just takes payment in raw materials. Iron, raw glass, and bamboo composite.

Now if I might be indulged, please allow me to express my consternation at this time change, in song!

No one has commented yet? Opportunity!

Let's see... story time is about... let's say your first time DMing, if you have! How did it go?

Sorry, pal. I beat you to it. With a song and everything.

Oh, and my first time solo DMing? Well... Paladin bitch tortured undead claiming they had no souls, and thus weren't people, therefore it was cool. Then she lied about her crit rate, and murdered a little girl vampire, rather than apply the freaking vampirism cure that the rogue had stolen from the child.

Then the cleric refused to rez the girl, sayingvshe was evil because she was a vampire. While everyones' backs were turned, the cleric utterly destroyed the remains to get his way. The rogue murdered the paladin and cleric in their sleep. The woman playing the paladin assaulted myself and the rogue's player.

I physically ejected her from the premesis, and then threw her bookbag after her. It was hit by a truck moments later, and college books and laptop bits went everywhere. She got banned and blacklisted. She showed up later, keyed cars, slashed tires, we had to call the cops...

It was bad. Shame, too. With a party void of total jerks, it could have been a great campaign. You can read a more detailed summary here.

I should warn you, however, after reading down, you will probably notice mistakes I made as a total novice. There were a lot.

Yikes. And you didn't do anything wrong.
I wouldn't go as far as throwing the bag, I agree with your decision.

Well, the reason I got hit is that I ruled she was helpless while sleeping, and she wasn't allowed to take 20 on her listen check. I basically got punched for not letting her just wake up, even though she rolled poorly. I particularly disliked this woman, because after breaking both our noses, she said that we can't hit back because she's a delicate flower. I hate to break it to you, but if you break the noses of two men, both much taller and heavier than you in rapid succession with your bare hands, simply because you're angry, you're not a delicate anything.

There are certain types of women I do not get along with. The kind that believe in that type of double standards are a big chunk of them. I cannot stand the whole "I should be allowed to hit you because you're bigger" mentality.

That was one of the major reasons I disliked her. Fortunately, she learned that while I wasn't about to hit her back and risk seriously injuring her, I didn't have to. She fell flat on her face when she was ejected from the house. She looked like she had snogged a belt sander. I did have to force her out the door, but... you know what? Yeah, she tripped and rode those steps with her face. And it was a hell of a lot gentler than if I had let her stay in the house with Mr. Domestic Disturbance, whose nose she had also broken.

Mean, yes, but definitely nicer than what I could have done, which was turn around or leave angrily. Both would have left her with him and a guy and a gal who might call the cops, which would be ten minutes away. Minimum.

I will admit that none of this was going through my head at the time. I just wanted her out before I retaliated.
