Disappointing that I dislike it and want it out of my head, or disappointing that it got stuck there in the first place?Stuck in head, when that happens for me, I just listen to like really awesome songs and it is gone.
Well, it works both ways - Dance of Death and El Dorado stuck straight in my head and they're two of my favourites from Maiden.

Well, the River Severn has deepened by about 2m in the past day and a half. A lot of water coming down from Wales... On the pic that Wiki shows, it's nearly at the bank and I can't say for sure that the Environment Agency won't be putting the defences up soon...Some floods around here as well, the rain has stopped however and the flooding is fast going down.
I hope it's not as bad as those flats, where the foundations were the only thing left, with the soil substrate being washed away around them...

I don't know. I think Germany has the worst censoring going on. At least in Europe. Of course Germany doesn't beat countries like China or North Korea.

Yeah, but it's just a fact of the internet, I'm afraid. Some nations are worse than others for it. At least you don't live in Australia, right, gamejunkie?

You are a very lucky user...This time, yes. I still hate all the blocking videos bullshit going on.
The Cold War USSR would have given modern day Germany a run for its money, as would have America. Wow, can you imagine the Cold War in the internet age? Espionage via Twitter...
But there is some dramatic music after Zoidberg demands MOOOOORRREEE!
I've never thought that the Futurama credits were that dramatic... Ever watched them at 1.5 speed? I saw them the other day on my PS3 and just thought it was hilarious.
MOOOOOOORRREEEE! *dramatic music sets in*
There aren't any and now there never will be.
I need more! More! MORE!
You're welcome. Now, where are my Anchovies?They're all gone - you just ate the last ones.
That's just a note or three. Hardly Beethoven's 5th, is it?
Poor DMing? No. Poor decisions from the players? Maybe... I remember the following: Huge battle was going on. Player 1 survived it and was wandering over the battle field. Players 2 and 3 come along. They think: "Hey, let's loot the corpses!"
That sounds like poor DMing, or very poor decisions from the players. It's session 1, so dream sequence it, get them together and start over, perhaps with a degree of paranoia...
No, TDE is just a shitty system. Seriously, three rolls and a lot of calculating just to see if you are sucessful or not?Ok, that sounds worse than some of the systems that I've played... I once had combat with no rolls and that was fun, just deciding what happens on a whim, as DM.
I remember one session, where we tried GURPS for the very first time. After two hours, we where done setting up the characters. After two minutes, the game was finished, with all but two characters being dead.
Player 1 says: "Don't touch my fallen comrades!". Player 2 tries to beat up Player 1, who in the process kills both (2 and 3). Player 4 was watching this from a distance, and decided to shoot player 1. My character was watching from a distance as well. I tried shooting Player 4, but missed. After that, I escaped (I was playing a cowardly race, so I just acted as the typical guy from that race would). Game over.
Oh, we've had similar. Rogue has been pissing off the Paladin all day, during a dungeon crawl, as he failed his sleight of hand roll, so he let the Paladin see him stealing various objects of great worth. When the rogue tries to open a locked door, he sets off a pit trap and falls in. The Paladin is the only one with a rope. He will only help the rogue, if he apologies to him for stealing. Rogue refuses; Paladin says that this is a slight against his god. The Rogue responds with "your god's a wanker!" comments. The pit closes.
The party rigs up a way of opening the trap again, but the argument continues, until the trap shuts once more. DM getting frustrated by this point, when they open the trap for the third time, the ceiling opens, to dump a load of refuse on the rogue. The party lets him drown in it.
We didn't bother with a second round, because it was very late already. But it was a funny game anyway. ^^
So long as you enjoyed it.
Do ghouls still have to go to the bathroom? I mean, they aren't exactly alive...
There are worse clans than the Ravnos - Tzimictze (sp?) for example. One of them sealed up a ghouls' sphincter, using visicitude and the idea of "tearing him a new arsehole" suddenly became rather appealing.
Illusions are lame. At least, when I'm not the one creating them. Once in Vampire: The Masquerade, me and a friend both played as a Ravnos. They can create illusions and often are gamblers or gypsies... I cannot understand why the rest of the group didn't like us. After all, we saved their asses more than once!
At least you have the time to make some witty or cool remarks before going down. Or maybe something funny. Like "Oh come on, what on earth could possibly happen? We are just going to have a piss!" or "It's just the town watch! How tough can they be?"The sea monster was an illusion. It turns out that the pirate's arch-nemesis is on board the most feared pirate vessel in the known world - the Crimson Roger. They boarded and lived to tell the tale, as well. I stayed wet enough, during the storm, but still lashed to the helm.
They're still human. Just blood bound mortals, with a little Potence and possibly Fortitude added.
Also, Tzimictze is wrong... but I had to look it up as well: Tzimisce.
Maybe it wasn't the clan itself that the others didn't like. Maybe it was because we where gambling all along. With card tricks, shell games, and so on. Best of all: The Gamemaster didn't like us as well (yeah, maybe our characters where a bit annoying... ^^). At one time he said: "Why on earth are the two fucking Ravnos still alive?". Good times...
I could have played that into an NPC encounter. "And yet the two members of house Ravnos still live? One day, their luck will run out, I am sure."

You're telling me. I've been stuck on 29,000+ for what seems like 8-9 months now...
