Oh Great Cthulhu!

I have been an extremely sedulous devotee this year.

In March, I fed a hapless fool to a Shoggoth (250 points). Last week, I prepared an ocean voyage to R'lyeh (200 points). In February, I burnt my copy of the Necronomicon (-75 points). In August, I legally changed my name to Randolph Carter (-40 points). In January, I wore an Elder Sign (-10 points). In October, I sacrificed my neighbour to Cthulhu (500 points).

In short, I have been very good (825 points) and deserve the honour of having my body used as a host for one of your servitors.


Your humble and obedient servant,
Brass


Submit your own plea to Cthulhu!

Name some friends or leave them blank and let me look them up myself:

Why must I talk about Aquinas at 9am.


You scored as Commander Samuel Vimes. You are Samuel Vimes! Captain of Ankh-Morporkâ??s city Watch! You are a knight, married to the very wealthy, noble lady Sybil Ramkin. You often walk the streets at night, and are able to tell where you are by the feel of the cobbles under your boots. You always do what is right â?? that is, what needs to be done â?? to keep the city safe, even when it seems bad.

Right those of you within range of Maynooth should come along to the fantabulous RPG / Player Workshop tonight. There will be fun of all sorts, no doubt.

Good sesion of Kult last night, I finally brought out the really heavy hard to deal with stuff and had John curled up hugging his knees. The last session is next week and I'm just waiting for it all to go quitely boom.

Off to Gaelcon this weekend, but I don't know if there's anything interesting worth playing other than the LARPs. Alas and there is pimping to do for Dominicon.

Mood: irate.
Right I'm currently quite peeved. We are having troubles with a certain convention who we moved Dominicon to suit. It seems that they have again followed us to another set of dates. Things have been going brilliantly for the con this year apart for this, we had more things running, more people coming and advertising and pimping to beat the band. To think that alot of this work will go into the abyss because of this bunch of insistingly wacky people is quite sad.

Come to Dominicon,

Going to Confess this weekend, going down on Friday early enough.

Check into room (after a drink or two on the train), have good hotel shower, check out the place. Go have a decent meal. Meet people in pub more than likely.

Game!

The Beth character is working out better than I thought she would. And the wee trip to the city has peeked the players interest.

Silent hill will be sent out tomorrow.

Subject:Hellboy
Time:11:47 am.
Mood: working.
Excellent film and highly recomended. A Cthulhu setting with a hardass superhero. Ron Perlman, Hurt and the Nials from Frazier steal the show. And the look of the thing was great. They could have done more with the villians but they were introducing a new chracter.

Go see Hellboy.

Comment to this entry with a post you think would be totally out of character for me - something I'd never talk about, never discuss, never say, anything. It has to be completely out of character. Then post this in your own journal.

Looking for details on how to self-publish in Ireland. They doesn't seem to be very forthcoming anywhere I've looked to print with. Hmmm

Thought is needed.

Really happy Silent Hill ran really well. Its a linear senario but it doesn't require much gm prompting the players. My house mate sat in and now thnks I'm supremely fucked up for writing it. It is a horror game come on.

Anyway Confess should be happy.
