Trying to sort out hotels in France with 36 hours notice, when it appears that the centre of Dijon is fully booked... Great.
Sounds like some CSS error (like, the CSS not being fully loaded).

It probably just needed to restart. I was not in the mood, anyway, but the black was all grey, so the quoted text practically looked the same. All fixed now.

Well, whatever it was, it's fixed now :)
It's also one of the most weird assasinations of all time.
That we know of.

Something tells me there was a little Cold War about the death of the former Russian agent, Alexander Litvinenko, who was killed using Polonium-210, to poison him with radiation.The most expensive assasination of all time.
Yes, but some of those have been really weird. Particularly the ones that look like accidents / suicide.
You mean Assamite? And I never played LARP, I always found it very strange...
My first character was an Assimaar - I had to assassinate the prince of the town, then when that failed, I ran. I was blood hunted in a "LARP" fashion, which I evaded with a change of clothes and the help of a few friends from college playing pool in the local pubs.
Nothing beats good play of character. When I first started, I took the easy way out and played a Malkav. So any blunder I would do, I could blame it on me being not totally sane, haha.
It also depends a lot on the players. In my old group, we more often than not got ourselves into trouble because of stupid actions from the players... ok, it didn't really help that one of the characters had a really low intelligence (he was a fighter, so... ^^). So the player only played his character. And he did it very well.Fair enough - I've had experiences of players who play to break the game. Just how it goes, I'm afraid.
Yes, Assimaar is a plane-touched D&D race (half-angel) Driving into the centre of Worcester, pulling up at a parking space and popping the boot, to the lads grabbing their gear, including a SPAS-12 replica shotgun, for BB rounds was a little worrying. Especially when the lad in question grabs the gun (with no ammunition) and says "right lads, off to the bank!"
Yeah, first we had "Advanced" D&D and then everything was even more confusing...
Well, the world is great. I enjoy Baldur's Gate and other D&D based computer games. But the system is too fucked up to be really enjoyable in a P&P session.It's getting better - look at how bad the system was in the 70s.
Advanced D&D still had THAC0 scores. Nowadays, you get an armour class of 10, plus your armour mod, dexterity mod (reduced for armour manoeuvrability), a modifier for the dodge feat, on one attacker per round, plus any cover, shield or spell / magic items you have. That number is equal to what the attacker must roll on the d20 to hit you. Their base attack bonus, plus strength (or dexterity - feats apply) modifier, plus any magical bonuses. Much easier to work out.
I think we never continued that adventure for too long after the helicopter crashed. Too bad. Would have been fun to go hunting for some fishes!
I don't know if it exploded or not. But in a group of 7 (I think) only 1 Ravnos survived (the others where "unconsius", ie they didn't have any blood left), and he had enough blood points left to bring one member of the group back to unlife. So of course he chose the other Ravnos, hehe.Well, if they can find any cattle around, they can sort out the rest coming back. Emergency crews have enough blood, too ;)
"Hey, I though you said that Troy McLure was dead."
"No, what I said was: 'he sleeps with the fishes.' You see..."
"Uh, Tony, please, no. I just ate a whole plate of dingamagoo."

No-one. Perhaps today is the day... who knows.
Apparently not. If it's not today, I'll be peeved.
