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.

You know J.Arcane's post nicely complements what JongWK and clash have posted so far. All the elements so far make for a very weird adventure.

This is why theRPGsite ROCKS! :cool:

All I have to do is come here and get another idea for a cool campaign or adventure...that I may never have time to run.  :p

You know, I'm tempted to try a little experiment one of these nights. I'd drink coffee until I have pure caffeine in my veins, and then do some freelance writing... while listening to an endless loop of that recording. ;)

Is it my imagination, or is this figurine a dildo?  Right down to the clitoral stimulator.  This adventure's getting interesting all right.

Ah, it keeps getting better and better:

Quote
A 2005 research cruise in the remote Pacific found something surprising: nothing. The scientific team aboard the research vessel Melville, mapping and drilling in the central South Pacific seafloor, traced out a region of bare rock that's bigger than Alaska. It had none of the mud, clay, ooze or manganese nodules that cover the rest of the deepest sea. This was not freshly made rock either, but oceanic crustal basalt that was 34 to 85 million years old.
