  1. And if you need help in designing your costume, here's a sample taken from the Stuperpowers! rpg: What?
  2. Here's one resource I had forgotten about and just rediscovered. I once planned to do a Highlander/World of Darkness crossover set in Medieval Europe. Since werewolves are available as player characters, and the Auspice (lunar phase during the werewolf's birth) is an important part of the character, I printed out a list of dates of the new moon and full moon from 1172 to 1231. Pity I never got to run this game.
  3. Possible, but it may look a little washed out. Depends on how much you want your character to stand out. Medium gray with silver trim would give a more distinctive, if monochromatic, look.
  4. Belarus athlete will fly to Poland after refusing to be forcibly repatriated Lily King calls BS on not celebrating silver and gold medals I agree with her statement. I've seen a lot of comments with the "silver medalist is the first loser" (their words exactly) attitude. Yet the US media counts silver and bronze to rank the countries in Olympic achievement. You can't have it both ways. and let's see the armchair quarterbacks do any better. And to quote the US Women's Gymnastics Team, they "don't owe you a gold medal."
  5. I guess it depends on the character, but this website has the basics: https://govisually.com/blog/color-theory-and-color-palettes/ I just found this website, so maybe it can give you ideas. Note that you don't have to use all the colors in the palette: https://coolors.co/ Edit: Here's a better primer on color theory: https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/color-theory-design

  7. The family that growls together prowls together. "So you think you can pick on me just coz you're bigger? Well, meet my new pal!"
  8. I found Causton in Midsomer County but not Badger's Drift.
  9. Belinda Bencic wins gold for Switzerland in women's singles tennis.
  10. That kind of mindset multiplies quite easily.
  11. The paid sponsor advertisement runs from 5:00 to 6:25.
  12. "Let's watch the fencing and archery competitions in the Olympics. I want to see swords clash and arrows fly!" "Dude, why don't we just watch Lord of the Rings instead?"
  13. Suni Lee wins all-around competition It's kind of annoying that the news outlets printed the story before NBC aired the competition. Spoilers, anyone?
  14. Call of Cthulhu is a great game; it's one of the many excellent games that Chaosium has produced. It's annoying that so many people only want to play the latest edition of D&D. I don't even care for the editions WOTC has produced. When I have a rare chance to actually run a game these days, I run different systems and genres to let people know about them. I haven't run HERO since 5e, but I will see if folks are willing to try it again.
  15. Women's Team Foil: The USA soundly defeats Japan in the quarterfinals but narrowly loses to the ROC in the semifinals. I may have jinxed the team by making harakiri jokes!
  16. Here are a couple more firsts in Olympic history: Estonia wins first gold medal in Fencing Philippines wins its first Olympic gold medal in Weightlifting No surprises here: Germany wins gold in Team Dressage
  17. Don't forget the western martial arts: Lee Kiefer claim's USA's first gold medal in foil Maybe I'll use these two Olympians as inspiration for a swashbuckler & monk duo.
  18. There's a difference between voicing your opinion and being an a-hole. At least justice was served in the latter case.
