raygundan: Heliodorus: Big Beef Burrito: I don't even want to ask Gawker.

Someone summarize.

A bunch of people suffer from dissociative disorders, but have the misfortune of living in the internet age; so their actions go from a private matter not discussed outside of the immediate neighborhood/town to easy access by any number of internet users. Gawker, sensing a opportunity to mine clicks, writes an exploitative article that satiates the primitive need of people to belittle the strange behavior of others in order to feel superior.

Indeed. Let's all point and laugh at Gawker's pathetic pandering.

/it's the circle of liiiiiife


It's one thing to shiat on others for profits sake, its another to shiat on the former for doing so.

OhioKnight: Two words that will haunt your soul and your very being throughout all time:

Clown Otherkin


Thank you for enriching my nightmares.

That's not what happens when your character dies in D&D at all. When that happens, you lean back in your chair, crack open yet another beer, and mock everyone else until you are asked to roll up another character.


I cannot count anymore how many horrible, hilarious deaths my characters have suffered. I gamed with a brutal group of Gygaxian DMs that were pretty funny about it all.

The only characters I still have living are my internet namesake that I've had for 19 years, and a half-elf sorcerer that's mortally afraid of gnomes.

Or if they're using second edition or later and at least one party member survives, the dead character could be resurrected.

I remember one 3.5 game I DM'ed where one character attempted a sunder attack without the Improved Sunder feat, thus provoking an attack of opportunity from a very strong monster. The monster scored a critical hit, killing the character with one hit. After the battle, the other players got upset when an NPC cleric wanted the party to pay for the material components of a resurrection spell.

After that, however, the players weren't nearly so reckless in battle.

fluffy2097: I scared myself again just finding this dude and his creepy smile.

Gods damn you! I'm going to have nightmares when I go to bed after sun-up. (Due to my work schedule, not the belief that I am a vampire.)

I used to have nightmares as a kid and be terrified of thunderstorms because of "paratroopers who came down on lightning". I was a three-year-old Army brat, and those were the only terms that made sense. This was well before Communion and more than a decade before Fire in the Sky. Not to say I might not have accidentally seen something on TV about abductions that I don't recall...

I also was utterly terrified by some local TV ad character (from a used car place, I think) that I called "the owlman". Mom says seeing him on the screen would send me screaming from the room...

I don't think it's enough to qualify as otherkin, but I occasionally get the deep and unabiding sensation that my left arm (from about mid bicep down) is not my own. Sure, it moves when I want it to, and hurts when it gets damaged, but I keep having the sneaking suspicion that its a replacement. May have something to do with the little red mark that I had on my index finger for years as a kid, but disappeared without a trace.

Maybe related to previous dreams?
