    I’ll shed a tear for the man even though he was partially responsible for my having wasted half my childhood… which brooke knows as well as anyone…

    Now there’s a fellow to lose. It’s interesting to imagine how much creativity he’d seen.

    Also, I had never actually known how he looked before.

    You’re the one that hooked me, T…you of the mad DM skillz!

    ok, guilty as charged, but truth be told my DM concept was but a poor imitation and pale shadow of my brother Tim’s. He never paid much attention to modules, instead taking the basic D&D idea and building his own elaborate Tolkein-inspired world with its own mythology, peoples, monsters etc. And then he went and squandered all that imagination and talent, becoming what? A lowly marine biologist. All he gets to do is travel to isolated arctic islands and Russian archipelagos to study sea otters. Ha. Chump.

    Wait a minute…

    I would definitely have a very different life without Gary’s contributions to the world. Gaming this weekend will be bittersweet.

    In unrelated news, I thought I’d link this for Bii, promo shots from the watchmen blog!

    Everyone but Doc M up there..some are a bit (or a lot) different but generally they’re looking pretty slick.

    Yeah…a little tooooo slick. IE: where’s Night Owl’s paunch, dammit?

    hey guys, have you heard stephen lynchs hysterical D&D song? Check it out, its sheer poetry!

    The more I look at Nite Owl, the more it looks like he might actually have the paunch, but is ashamed and trying to hide it with the fancy outfit..which is a nice touch if they were going to redo the design anyway.

    Ozymandias bothers me but the original look might have looked even worse on a real person. The others I am cool with – especially the sleazy look of The Comedian.

    I’ll stop derailing this thread now, because I loves some Gary.
