I am definitely looking forward to the over-the-top silliness that is promised in this thread. But as always, if Plork is a bit too much Plork for any of our players, feel free to send me a PM to tone it down, as it's meant to be fun for you too, and I won't take it the wrong way.

I found my kazoo, and have something else kazoo like (with a trumpet bell sort of thing on the end) so I will be making soundtracks for everyone over the next couple of days.

And so it begins.
Gortwog will get all the loot, of course.
And he will share with no one.
(Ogi should appreciate that last one...)

Damn, Mac was right.

The (probably) inevitable outcome.

While life isn't always sunshine and puggles, Hugglenauts are quicker to see the good in everything. A Hugglenaut has a moderate inherent resistance to fear, demoralization, negative illusions and mind magic spells. Their presence is a calming influence on nearby allies, and those within a ten foot radius also find their resistances to these attacks mildly increased.

Fame: Legendary Corsair: Pirate Captain Buddy Holly
Coastal Fame:

In and around the seas, your name, crew, and ships are known far and wide. Many respect you for your fame, some fear you, and others wish to claim your fame as their own.

Captain Buddy Holly has had a careful but steady rise in fame with both pirates and proper sailors alike. The greatest center of his infamy being the megaopolis Taras, where bounties for Sacred Heart pirates are posted on the boards, with the highest reward being for the "Corrosive Captain", Buddy Holly, himself, so-called for his preference at using acids in his unlawful deeds. Through cunning and careful coordination, Captain Holly has managed to bring larger vessels both privately owned and Navy to defeat, and boasts leading the kills of several sea monsters, including rescuing his crew from being swallowed whole by a sea devil.

The realization of a romanticized pirate, Buddy is intelligent, merciful, and as honorable as a pirate can be while still employing underhanded tactics. He has been known to order his crew to spare noncombatants, and even ship guards and military who surrender are let to live and spread the tale of Captain Holly and his crew. Testaments to his personality describe him as kind, clean, and quick-witted, preferring to use the weight of his infamy and his words to disarm and rob people instead of needless violence. some even describe him as having a handsome, almost celestial appearance, with bright blue eyes, light blonde hair, and fair pale skin.

I see a ton of ponies, but no saddles. Therefore we need the almighty lord Meteor to cleanse us of this problem.

If a giant blue wyrm named "Bluespeaker" shows up, I'll feel both pandered to and loved.

ETA: I have an idea for how Falki gets there, but wondering if anyone wants to say they "kidnapped" the Ice Prince or something. =P
