(Fark)   Let's get judgmental--help subby put modern people and/or fictional characters in the various levels of Dante's Inferno. It's for a D&D campaign (not 4.0, which is popular in circle 6)   (fark.com) divider line 29

Paul Crouch just died.  He's probably already in hell.  You've got the beginnings of a good campaign right there.

Edition AD&D is best AD&D.

Subby might get more mileage if he put up the circles of hell, because most of us don't have encyclopedic knowledge of Italian Renaissance literature.

But from Wikipedia it looks like Rush Limbaugh would go just fine in at least 5 different circles. He could be a recurring character... it was seen fit that he would be punished in *every* level of hell, simultaneously.

Niven and Pournelle assigned some moderns to cirlces in Escape from Hell. I recall architects of the Iraq war were in one of the lower pits, not necessarily out of evil intent but because they led people astray. Their earlier novel had "Bomber" Harris in the same pit.

He wouldn't be in the woods of the suicides... yet.

Or in the whirlwind of the lust, I just don't want to think about that.

Bernie Madoff could go in the greed circle. Gary Gygax could be Virgil. Benedict Arnold (I know, not exactly modern) could be in the chewing maw of betrayers.

oh jeebus christ you've got a one track mind.


While we are classing out fictional characters can someone help me out with the show Supernatural?

Dean Winchester: Duel class lvl 5 warrior lvl 1 mage (or maybe sub in lvl 3 thief)

Sam Winchester: Duel class lvl 5 warrior lvl 3 mage (unless you want to demon blood Sam then lvl 7)

Bobby Singer Duel class lvl 7 mage lvl 5 bard (knowledge of "Lore")

Been watching way too many episodes on Netflix and it just strikes me as a couple 4-5 level campaigners getting some awesome critical hits when they really really need them. Not to mention the occasional epic weapons.

George W Bush for the 9th circle of hell (Treachery)

In Limbo reside the unbaptized and the virtuous pagans, who, though not sinful, did not accept Christ - Apu

In the second circle of Hell are those overcome by lust. - Mayor Quimby

The "great worm" Cerberus guards the gluttons, forced to lie in a vile slush produced by ceaseless foul, icy rain - Homer, obv

Those whose attitude toward material goods deviated from the appropriate mean are punished in the fourth circle. - Mr. Burns

In the swamp-like water of the river Styx, the wrathful fight each other on the surface, and the sullen lie gurgling beneath the water, withdrawn "into a black sulkiness which can find no joy in God or man or the universe." - sounds like Moe
In the sixth circle, Heretics, such as Epicureans (who say "the soul dies with the body")[23] are trapped in flaming tombs. - this one's tricky but I nominate Disco Stu

The seventh circle houses the violent. Its entry is guarded by the Minotaur, and it is divided into three rings - gotta be Sideshow Bob

The last two circles of Hell punish sins that involve conscious fraud or treachery. - also sounds like Moe for the time he charged Homer to look at the wall with him. Maybe we can make Patty and Selma Level Five.

The ninth and last circle is ringed by classical and Biblical giants, who perhaps symbolize pride and other spiritual flaws lying behind acts of treachery. - can only be that tall guy that humiliated Nelson, right?

yeah yeah yeah. Well we could have had some fun classing out popular actors and actresses or other what nots. Now it's a slap fight about my guys vs your guys when they aren't the ones burning they're the devils with the pitch forks!

I wouldn't mind seeing Alec Baldwin or Tom Cruise buried upside down in a black rock with their feet on fire.

Aleister Crowley on level 8. Maybe previous incarnations of the Dalai Lama on the 1st circle. And I'd go ahead and throw Jerry Fawell on level 6 for being a heretic.

The GOP and the Tea Party are locked in eternal schisming struggle, like the Guelphs and the Ghibellines.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Just imagine the fun that could be had with a Gandalf vs Harry Dresden


Look, I'm a HUGE Harry Dresden fan, but I think Gandalf would wipe the floor with him*. Not much even Harry can do against a *literal* force of nature. ...Though an argument could be made that Gandalf the Grey is slightly less potent than Gandalf the White, in which case Harry (later books, post-training-Molly, more experienced Harry) might have a fighting chance. If he had his blasting rod. And his multi-shield-bracelet. And his duster.

In a stand-up fight though, I gotta give this to Gandalf. His Evocation is just more finely tuned than Harry's. Now give Harry time to prep, and some thaumaturgical bits of Gandalf to use? Things might get more interesting. Still. Gandalf Greyhaim took down Durin's Bane. One-to-one. Plus, wielding Narya would negate much of Harry's favorite elemental magic, Fire. Yup, gotta give it to Gandalf on this one.

/*Unless they were standing on Demonreach, then all bets are off.
//Yep, I'm completely aware that I am a complete nerd.

Meh.

Between the mantle of the Winter Knight and the soul fire all my money is on Harry.

No way, it's Dresden.  Something would happen that would allow him to save the universe and end up more powerful than he was before, though it would be at the cost of something personal, maybe, that would make us feel bad for the plucky wizard.

Harry Potter would kick both of their asses though, so who cares.

President Obama can be in the Empyrean of the Paradiso; that will be his Hell, watching someone besides himself being worshiped forever.
