Ironically enough, the process to get this page uploaded to the site did not involve any of my best days ever.

Sorry to hear you had such a hard time getting the page to upload.

On the matter of RD's win though, yay! Guild can suck it! Now everything can proceed as planned! Which I assume means everything will not go as planned! Muhahaha!

The only way to make sure everything goes as planned is to make a plan that relies on everything not going as planned.

But if you plan a plan at the table that relies on everything not going as planned then wouldn't the GM plan a plan around your plan that relies on everything not going as planned?

This is why I'd plan a plan by planning in advance a plan to use words in our plan that, for our plan, would mean something either opposite or perpendicular to their normal meaning.

Such as, if we decide our plan that we plan at the table is going to be to storm the castle, we instead round up some NPCs to make a distraction so we sneak in from two separate points and thus split the enemy's forces apart and get our planned objective done despite the GM's planning around our plans but not our pre-planned plans of planning the plan.

Ah, so you plan a plan around the plan specifically to plan for the GM's plan to counter your plan not going as planned. Brilliant!

Yep. My refinement of Finagle's Constant is "The universe is out to get you and has a cruel sense of humor."

- You don't need to go until there are no restrooms for fifty miles.
- The teacher never calls on you unless you don't know the answer.
- You don't get a flat tire or run out of gas unless you have no way to remedy the situation.
- Being prepared for anything means you won't need whatever you brought and thus wasted the space and energy to get it there.

It's why i finagled an evil cleric's control undead ability onto my Witch last campaign, All my good spells were mind affecting so i threw that on there knowing that the DM would see it and put fewer undead enemies.
