If you’re running a campaign like that, count me in! I’m getting tired of putting my characters in danger all the time. What I want some nice, fun scenarios like birthday parties for awhile. I’ve actually been working on a campaign setting for awhile now called Happy Valley, where chaos and evil are practically non-existent. I’ll never find anyone to play it, but I find it good therapy to work on it after a grueling day in the real world.

I was not aware, but I appreciate the correction. At least I was right on everything else, which is pretty good for me.

I thought the list had already decided Philidor was Papa Smurf. Or was he a giant space hamster…?

Me not know Earthdawn. What spirit training do? Or do you mean Soul Train? Bad show.

Yak-Men agree with Ug. “Cooked elf—Yum!”
