    • How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)?

    I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    • What was the first tabletop RPG you played?

    It's like what Lenin said... you look for the person who will benefit, and, uh, uh...

    • What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed?

    You know what I'm trying to say...

    • What are you currently playing/GMing?

    Yeah, well. The Dude abides.


  1. Oh, I know Damage Shield is the RAW way to do it.  I even asked Steve Long about this approach in the Rules Forum back when I came up with it and he shot it down.  I think it's a more elegant solution with many applications besides the Brick SFX (think sci-fi Force Fields that zap the zapper back).


    Walter, ya know, it's Smokey, so his toe slipped over the line a little, big deal. It's just a game, man.

  2. Re: Science: Particles seen moving at FTL speeds (CERN)


    Uh-huh, any other population reduction measures in history that you care to mention as "admiring the results of"? I mean seriously, stop and think about what you are actually saying.


    *slaps forehead* Aww, I almost forgot, by your very own words, the First World has already taken the only truly acceptable step in solving our problems by dying faster then our birthrate can support. (And yeah, it's my understanding that you are correct about Europe's numbers as well and if I remember correctly they started before we did.) So, I'll ask again, what enforcement measures would be needed to ensure that both the First World and the Third stick to your final solution for Global Warming? And what penalities should there be for countries and people who didn't stop "breeding like rabbits in Australia"?



    SteveZilla, McCoy is referring to the predictions of mass death and waves of refugees from the areas hardest hit by Global Warming, if my brain isn't jello at the moment I seem to recall that the prediction a few years back was that we'd have around one hundred million "enviromental refugees" by 2010.


    Um.. I don't think this is the thread you are looking for.

  3. Re: Common superhero types you've never seen in play


    Ugggghhhhhhh! ...I was 17....Amazing Spider-man Vol 1 # 270. Was still in Wiesbaden at the time, so picked up my comics at the Stars and Stripes book store, after school, skipped early football practice/pep rally (it was comic day), and sat down to read the Horror of Horrors....


    That story actually made me Mad. I mark that day as the day Spider-Man died for me, and the day that Tossing out things like Continuity and what a Character can do in comics, became standard practice (though in 85 this was limited to a few characters). I actually, tore that comic up, ripped it to shreds, and tried to get my Dog to eat it. He refused, so I took it back to back to football practice anyway to vent; where we stuffed it under the two man sled while we ran drills on it for an hour or so, then we dug it out, and laid it out page by torn page, weighed down with a Commissary Cake Doughnut (Itself, a Horror of Horrors, and If I recall, they are the principle ingrediant in the Chobham Armor used on the British Challenger 2 Tank right now.....), and we watched Cars and Trucks run them over, and took bets on how long it took the Doughnut to re-inflate after it got flattened by a bus....


    In November, 1985, Spider-Man was Incinerated by a Herald of Galactus. There has been no Spider-Man since......
