Smithson Thus Far... ·


Even though it's a diceless game, Dave's brought his dice. He'd probably like to be an NPC in a more hardcore system. He also still has a cigarette, but, you know, they've somehow got tobacco in Middle-Earth, too.

Rachel S. (masamage) says: I think Middle Earth's pipeweed bears resemblence to more druglike drugs, too... There's a bit somewhere about how Gandalf has smoked so much that his memory is mildly affected by it.
W o o d (wood) says: Tobacco affects memory too !
Leon Arnott (l) says: Now this is genius: "On the following round, the character must flip a coin. On heads, the character blows up." Not the player, but the in-universe character, must procure and flip an in-universe coin to determine if an in-universe explosion occurs.
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Leon:  well, having the player's head blow up would be rough on group attendance....  ;-)

Sarge:  I thought that was his coin... 


Nick Alcock (nix) says: It turns out, in fact, that Dave is a Doctor for Doomsday Machines. He just doesn't know it.
Beth Bever (dementron) says:

I'm guessing Dave's stats would go up considerably once he goes mad.

Also, how can Helen (Beta, obviously) not have a Cute score? She's adorable! (Though not nearly on the level of Sir Pounce, of course.)
