Newbiespud's Note: No Fallout is Dragons or Mawlers Take Manehattan this week, which is nice because I won't have spent all last night editing before my birthday! Yay!

...No idea what I'm gonna do today, though. These past couple of years, since most of my friends don't live near me and I tend not to have much money after bills, I just assume my birthday will be a day like any other.

Well, that doesn't sound foreshadowing at all.
Ever had that happen to you?

A lot of my humor is sarcasm, so there are many times I'll just spell out the forshadowing when I'm GM. I think among my favorite was an adventure in Shadowrun where the players were needing to download some data off an internal network and the team mage just yanks the harddrive out of the server. I think I said something along the lines of

"You have the drive with all the data. Now you just have to sneak out of the building. It'll be easy as long as no one watching the network saw a drive suddenly go offline and trigger several alarms."

Foreshadowing. The trick that is always hardest to land AFTER playing certain rpgs.

My botch/save was an incident with guards. We were sent to "retrieve" a valuable item only for the guards to stop us.
With one dead and another tied up our group tank opened the doors only for the building to explode. The tank saw the enemy just left. The mage prepared spells for our next encounter or escape. Our team's healer checked for suvivors and I slit the gaurd's neck.

Reason for killing the hostage? Because he was the only witness and we were supposed to have robbed the place.

Turns out said guard was supposed to lead the city watch to throwing us in jail so good on me!

Sadly though he was supposed to be the guy who helped us convince the city watch to catch said criminals.

So yah... saved us from jail and cut off some allies for us to use. Still grenades tend to solve most problems with liberal thinking, fast feet, and LOTS of property damage.

Happy Birthday Spud!

If I lived close, I'd offer to run a "Birthday Adventure" like I used to do with my old group. Generally it involves a silly campaign using a system like Toon to just have fun and eat cake. :3

Well, I suppose tech nowadays makes it easy to run games online. Can't find a good cake download app though...

Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death. Congrats :D
