I realize that at least half of my gimmick is "That thing in the episode that was a random accident or mistake is now deliberate!" But... it's honestly a lot of fun to come up with a new plot that makes it all still flow.

I feel like most of the really great campaign comics, this included, have some sort of gimmick. DMotR is "Everyone is a terrible roleplayer." Darths and Droids is "Let's see how different I can possibly make this story." Grand Line 3.5 is "What if this entire thing was secretly a coming-of-age metaphor centered on the emotional growth of the main player, and by extension his PC?" (I might be reading into that last one.)

Well that and "what if the reason Luffy is only good at eating, fighting, and leading is because he's the PC of a munchkin who still believes heavily in the Power of Friendship and knows the grapple rules better than anyone?"

Tho I did love how Nami hating pirates was explained as the attempt of an over-enthusiastic roleplayer trying to inject drama into a situation with two guys who are totally drama-free types. And I await Brook with baited breath. And still have my money that Law was developed as a creepy rival and future villain only Luffy got too hurt in the Paramount war sot the DM had LAw enigmatically save Luffy and now Luff thinks they're BFFs and the DM is forced to Insert Tragic Backstory.

Nah, "someone" is acceptable. The word you need to avoid is "somebody".

And what's wrong with somebody, huh? You sayin' that ponies don't have bodies? This particular word might only be inaccurate if one were to include ethereal beings as persons who could catch or prevent the statue from falling.

"You sayin' that ponies don't have bodies?"

Well there is the... but we agreed not to mention that... INCIDENT, didn't we?
