This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

If fantasy campaigns were chronicled like sports

From Zachary the First's blog:

TOWERS OF DAMNATION, PLANE OF INFINITE DREAD --Coming back from the edge of defeat to score yet another miraculous, improbable victory, the Warriors of Light beat the Dark Army Saturday night on the Dark Army's home field.

"It's really discouraging," said Dark Army coach Albzug the Unsleeping, "You think you have the ruling piece of the legendary Dragon Gem with which you can bring about the destruction of the entire world, but a last-ditch assault on your vile fortress of evil can really turn things around in a hurry".

By the end of the first half, the Dark Army was well-ahead, having killed off several beloved secondary characters, but they could never quite manage to contain Gar, the peasant-turned-knight who won the love of a princess and was destined to become Lord Evilsbane, Ruler of the Seven Isles of Fate.

"We keep letting some peasant kid have a breakout game against us," said Albzug, his incorporeal body still reforming in the emptiness between worlds.

The rest here.
Don't forget rule no. 2, noobs. Seriously, just don't post there. Those guys are nuts.

Speak your mind here without fear! They'll just lock the thread anyway.
