Hate to be the call-out person but I gotta defend my guy Poopfeast420’s legacy. Poopfeast was birthed in the beginnings of GSL when John the Translator picked questions from silly names for Artosis. Believe the SotG Poopfeast420s were imitating the original (or maybe it was the same person, who knows), but it started as a GSL thing.
Silliness aside, what another lovely episode! @AdamKoebel you’re doing a great job portraying weirdness. I always super admired Steven because stuffing in that weird shit was his total jam on West Marches, glad to see more of that with the Wizards (typing that out with a capital “W” makes me wonder if one of the Wizards is perhaps of the Coast?)! When GM’ing I sometimes find it hard to fully express characters when they are deeply weird (weird like the Kirin or the Gith, in that they have this total alien vibe to them and are very different from the PC’s understanding of things. Can also be characters that are, like, very philosophical or religious. “Weird” is pretty broad here) . Particularly hard to do it off-the-cuff. I find myself spending a very long time thinking about those characters’ perspectives between sessions to prepare myself.
Do you have suggestions on how to get better at exploring “weird” characters? I imagine reading a lot is a good starting place, so open to suggestions there.
Also, the game I have found that the house-rule of giving a level of exhaustion whenever a character drops to 0 works well in these types of games where encounters are less often (but also probably more meaningful). Know you’re not big on bringing in lots of house rules, but I noticed you kind-of implementing it already with Berg this session so thought I’d toss it out there! Also feels nice fictionally as it is a bit of a silly sight when a character can be knocked out and awakened several times in a few rounds, gives that more meaning
