Today, there should be a SpudShot session at 6PM Pacific on hitbox.tv/Newbiespud! This month: Fallout is Dragons - The Hills Have AIs!

EDIT: Hopefully this will still happen, because I've just learned that my area's about to get hit with some pretty nasty windstorms, potentially causing power outages. So if 6PM Pacific rolls around and nothing's happening, that might be why. Just a heads-up.

MORNING EDIT: After a week with a head cold, now I've caught a really awful stomach bug! So yeah, session looking incredibly unlikely.

Who on earth comes to a birthday party without their present finished...

But building a character is half the fun! And birthday parties are supposed to be fun... I wonder how this one will go, because Spud has made a career out of unpredictability in this strip.

When the present is a process, something to make (or at least finish up) with the birthday person. This can be an attempt to show you really care, by customizing it to the birthday person's preferences - even ones you couldn't get without asking.

If that was Gilda's intent, points to her for that at least.

Gildas intent and present at this point seems to be, to turn the whole group including the gm into min-maxers and the story towards the fight-marathon RDs player used to love

or to cause the group to self destruct.

Storytime: Gaming on a birthday! How do you celebrate? Cake and ice cream? Play the birthday boy/girl's favorites? Make teasing references in the game? I haven't done RPGing, but in my wargaming group the celebrant often gets to run a game of his choice.

Well, last birthday in my group was mine and one of our other players...

I forget if we gamed then, but I sometimes give characters presents.

Plus there is always the 'Happy Birthday', 'You too.'

In my other group, since it is in person I like to make desserts. For every chance. I made a cake for my own birthday. I am weird. And yes, as a GM I have sometimes given presents out. Usually to the whole
