I think we've already had a Story Time about player-invented events. Or maybe just about national events in general. Still, that doesn't mean we're not open to new stories that are tangentially relevant to any current topics.

Speaking of events, have I mentioned I'm attending Everfree Northwest as a community guest? Oh, I have? And it's currently on every comic page between the Author's Notes and the comments? Okay. I'll shut up for a while now.

5 weeks? Seems a little short noticed if you ask me.

But, then again, I don't really have ambition to even attempt something like that.

... or anything.

"This has never been done before."
"That's why it'll work."

As a Game Master, I try to be open to players who want to think outside the box. I don't want to say "No" if the idea isn't completely out there. Give them a chance for the attempt, even if difficult, and let the dice and their RPing determine where it goes.

Yeah, sometimes it might threaten the rails, but honestly if I worry about that, I shouldn't be investing in rails to begin with. :D

"We'll never survive the Fire Swamp!"
"Nonsense! You're only saying that because no one ever has!"

One of the greatest and most quotable movies ever. :D

I once made an interesting dungeon where it had the usual legend of "No one ever comes back out", dead or alive (no bodies were ever found of any would-be adventurer who went inside). The PCs tried their hand at it and found the dungeon not to be too difficult. Sure there were still some active traps and dangerous critters, but they were getting by pretty well.

Unknown to them, the last room of the dungeon was a circular one that has a myriad of colors and twinkling sounds that assaults the senses. At the same time it teleports everyone inside to an identical dungeon half way around the world.

And it's a one way trip. >:D

Thus the PCs discovered why no one who ever entered has come back. They end up on the other side of the planet with no way of getting back. At least they got to keep the treasure they found.

A great movie and a great book!

Seriously, if you have seen the movie and liked it, read the book. It is almost exactly the same, just has more jokes.

...If you have seen the movie and didn't like you, you may have been replaced by a doppelganger. They have been rumored to not like good movies.

I own the book. Never wrote to the address in there about the 'missing chapter'. :3
