  1. That picture needs a cigar...

    and, damn, do I want to play one.

  2. "Shoggs out" is the funniest thing I've seen so far this month.

    Anthropomorphic Bluejays I imagine as being a real problem in certain areas of Glorantha.

    Dungeon Philosopher must be real pros at the "snake fight" portion of their thesis defense.

  3. The half-man half Shoggoth: "Don't make me angry Mr. McGee. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry. I mean, you REEEEEALY wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

    Or surprised. Or upset. Or distracted. Or horny." (Ugh, that last one could be a real problem.)

  4. I would love to roll up any of those!

  5. Anthropomorphic Bluejays...? You mean... like THIS GUY?
