    Default Ask TPBM II

    I think we had one of these before. Anyhow, the point is pretty simple. Just answer the question from TPAY, and ask another question for TPBY to answer. I'll start:

    No, White Space, I will not give you a sandwich.

    The nearest tree on my right has needles, not leaves. (And they are green.)

    Holiday hater. They increase stress levels, and create needless conflict through impossible to meet expectations. Worst offender: Christmas.

    TPBM, if you were given a one way ticket to Mars, along a first wave colonisation effort, would you be ready to leave everything here on Earth behind you?

    No. I like too many people and places and things here on Earth to leave this wonderful place full of life to leave it for an empty, barren wasteland. I know Earth is far from perfect, but to leave behind all the good aspects for an essentially dead world would be too much for me.

    A penguin! Those flightless birds are really fluffy, and look so cute in everything they do. And they're not afraid of humans.

    Do you like to play as a paladin? Why (not)?

    I don't play paladins, in part, because few GMs seem to want to tweak the code to fit the character I want to play better. Also because of the sheer number of arguments said code causes. I don't like how easily the paladin loses all its class features, nor how hard it is to get them back. I also generally prefer playing proper casters if I'm playing D&D.

    Are you going to give the new edition of Exalted a try?

    Nope. How do I play Twister, or lie comfortably in my bed, or go on theme part rides safely, or even be able to sit down properly? Any power that can't be turned off is almost always bad, really.

    Do you prefer to play Good or Evil characters?

    I generally prefer good characters, although some characters dipped far enough into antihero territory to be considered evil. While good characters feel good to play (I especially love Stupid Good characters), once in a while there's something fascinating about playing a manipulative sociopath or a psychotic murderer. I scare myself sometimes.

    What's the strangest sequence of thoughts you've had?

    It was a RP-enforced text-based computer game. I had to learn social norms such as bowing, and RPing not automatically knowing people's names even when the game did tell you the name. Luckily, no one really paid attention to my RP, and I had to be a lot more concerned about the harsh game mechanics anyway. I eventually moved on to a game with no RP.

    Some time after that, I found these forums, and got started by posting in Trog's. I was rusty on RP, and godmodded another PC and one of his robots. Good thing I made it clear I was new, and was forgiven.

    Do you spend more time on a desktop, laptop,or mobile phone?

    Haven't had desktop for twelve years. Spend at least 2-3 hours a day on laptop, often more. Phone is catching up though, I'm nearing a point where I have collected three stars in all levels, in all the different Angry Birds games. All. Of. Them. (well, except Epic, which just is unplayable on my phone after level 6 or so)

    TPBM, do you see yourself playing board or computer games when you are at a venerable age, 70 - 90+ years?

    I like the concept of rogues and I had had the option for a rogue avatar. To me, rogues always seem to have the most interesting stories/motivations because they're tricksters. I might end up getting a custom avatar at some point, but this one works just fine for now.

    I remember getting really attached to the first character I played... but then things turned bad... she's now a bittersweet memory...

    I had only a handful of PCs (in total!), none of which have really taken off. I guess my favorite is Axanot, followed closely by Kelcey. They have yet to be fully fleshed-out, but at least I feel happy thinking of them.

    What was your worst gaming experience?

    Rutger Fitzhenry is a LG knight, who was torn between loyalties to his family and king. This leads to him being disinherited and adopting the role of the nameless Scarlet Knight until the day he can win back his honor and reclaim his name.

    Yup, he's such a funny person and, despite his mental disability, is not used as a morality pet to mine for the auidence's feelings. He's actually likeable, far more than any other mentally challenged character I've seen in other stories.
