What should you blog about today? Roll D10


Now, I like Zak's chart here, but it fails to address some of the intrinsic realities of the Wild World of RPG Blogging. So take off your rose-colored glasses and roll d10 on this chart to find out what you should really blog about today:

1. Why I hate (insert edition/clone/opinion of choice here) so much, and why you should care.
2. James Maliszewski is wrong. And pompous too.
3. Girls in camo bikinis with swords and guns.
4. Nineteen pages of my new house rule for determining the migratory patterns of my campaign setting's rabbit population, the genetic predispositions of their fur color and tooth length, the impact that has on tropical weather patterns, and why this is revolutionary.
5. WotC is raping my childhood. Please somebody call the authorities. Ow.
6. "Shut up Mom I'm trying to blog!"
7. New Monster: "Cockasaurus".
8. Something innocent doomed to draw the wrath of Your Dungeon is Suck.
9. Spiderman.
10. "Sorry, the blog at ThingsIputinmyClericsAnus.blogspot.com has been removed."

  2. #4 works best if you kick it off with a rant about how thoroughly some other blogger fails to understand rabbits.

  3. My personal fave:

    "Nineteen pages of my new house rule for determining the migratory patterns of my campaign setting's rabbit population, the genetic predispositions of their fur color and tooth length, the impact that has on tropical weather patterns, and why this is revolutionary."

    Well done, sir.

  4. Heh, lots of room for expansion of that list, but you nailed it pretty well.

  8. 11. Flip through your old D&D book until you come to a rule that makes no sense, is impossible to use, grossly unfair to players, or all three. Argue that the rule is great because 1) D&D is like one of those fantasy stories where the guy dies at the end so it should be unfair and make no sense 2) it builds grit and character 3) you remember what fun you were having with the rule in 1980 A.D. even though you didn't know you were having fun at the time and 3 of your players quit on you 4) incompetence is a mark of sincerity.

  11. "8. Something innocent doomed to draw the wrath of Your Dungeon is Suck."

    Wow. That was like... satire? performance art? The OSR equivalent of the Westboro Baptist Church? Or maybe the product of 99 weeks of free unemployment check money spent unwisely?

    I wish I had half that guy's free time.

    Thanks, Al. I probably could have gone to my grave never knowing that blog existed. :D

    :)

  14. "Moreover, I added a picture"

    Well, I'm glad you didn't roll a "5". ;)

  15. I'm morbidly fascinated by YourDungeonIsSuck now. Thanks for nothing! ;)

    I can't make up my mind if that dude really is as angry as he and his sycophant commenters are, or if he's just playing at being Andy Kaufman. Either way, the Internet Tough Guy pic up top perfectly illustrates that blog.

  16. This is sheer genius. I rolled a one. I hate rolling a one...okay...a 'Why I Hate...' post coming up and it's all your fault.
