I just read the description of the "Queen of Martian Catacombs" and the changes made to the original story to turn it into "The Secret of Sinharat". Still torn which one I like better...but they also show well the two different approaches to RPG Refereeing.

What are the differences?
"Queen of the Martian Catacombs" has the more romantic, one would almost say "narrative", ending... it is also the better story, IMO. That editor knew his job.
"The Secret of Sinharat" is much more believable and overall, what I strive for in an RPG.

Bottom line? Earth-shaking conclusions? Nope. Nothing of the sorts! I just like Leigh Brackett, that's all:grin:!

I know there are sometimes significant differences between her magazine and book versions. Having read all of her fantasy in books I should seek out the magazine versions.

Warning: Wereshark Incoming!

The latest area for the Forgotten Smugglers' Cave adventure, Area #10: Driftwood Hermitage, features a Wereshark, one of the few monsters for D&D created by J. Eric Holmes:

It’s not that I’m a bad person. Or a good person. It’s that I’m not good enough. I want to be better. And I realize that being a better person includes not being influenced by the way circumstances treat you but by God life is seriously cramping my style right now. And I feel like shit.
Started BJJ. I don't expect to ever have an use for most of the ground moves on the street...but it's as much fun as I remember it to be, the trainer and the group are nice, and I'm getting in shape.
By which I mean "lost about 2,6 kgs in three practice sessions". I kid you not.

Also, it seems I'm now 5 kgs down.

Today's account: I'm 5,6-6kgs down, depending on which numbers you trust. Not bad after skipping practice for 5 days to go to my country house:grin:!
Also of note: first ankle hyperextension, ahoy:shade:!

New update - I'm now 12,6 kgs down:devil:!
Anyone else go to click on the notifications up top, accidentally switch out of Dark Mode, then hiss in agony? Or is that just me?
And now I've got a rashguard with a 17th-19th century Bulgarian revolutionary on it. I bet most of you haven't seen such a model!

Some aloe vera should clear that up...

Except I actually like the picture, if you mean "removing the picture".
If you mean "removing a rash", I ain't got one. I got a rash-guard in order to prevent one from appearing in the first place:thumbsup:.
I have a new "favourite product" now:

*drumroll*
"A facemask...with a p*ssy on the inside", to quote the description!

And since that's me, I'm now wondering how to use something similar as a detail for a NPC:shade:!

No, Voros Voros - I didn't buy it, if that's what you were wondering about:grin:! But it is a funny detail to add to a contemporary/future game. And if anyone asks it actually exists!

I just managed to retell Heinlein's Time Enough for Love in less then a page. The amazing thing is how useful the word "fuck" was in that exercise:grin:!
Also, when it comes to survival, Lazarus is like many of my PCs. When it comes to family, not quite.
Is the 'this film is crap...' line a reference to the album by David Holmes?

It is indeed! Didn't expect anybody else to spot that.

I'm a soundtrack nerd.
That comment in Blood Sword is an allusion to your comments but please take the "unwelcome" part as a friendly jest. Keep the taunting coming!
It's amazing to watch the reaction to the nuT$R expressing some opinions held by the majority of people in my country.
But this ain't about the opinions themselves, thanks to Rule 0. I'm just wandering what a native Tekumelian would feel like listening to the talk in a pub in Golarion or the Forgotten Realms!
That might be a campaign idea, or at least an idea for a Traveller PC:grin:!
Some worlds in the 3I are different.

OK, the continuation of the thread and it spilling in an unrelated thread makes that observation even funnier.
I wonder suspect what the reaction would be if I was to create a world for Traveller where "gender" is a curseword...
Like, you know, it has become one where I live:devil:!
That is one fine (and big) collection of games in your sig!

Yeah I put that there to let people know what I'm down with. I have plenty more, but that's the game books sitting in my book case, kinda in my current preference of play. I didn't have too many rpgs in my adolescence, but in recent years I have been making up for lost opportunities. I truly need more time to read all the stuff in my bookcase, all my novels, reference books, and rpg books.:thumbsup:
