You trip and fall to your death.
Critical fail, you swallow a knife and it explodes.
"As the assassin foolishly tries to slide down the gravelly side of the mountain, he trips and slits his throat on his knife. He’s dead. Anyone else want to do anything stupid?"
"You somehow determine that the golem is made of bacon.”
"You go to search the body, but manage instead to trigger the bear trap. I’m rolling damage now."
"You shoot your unconscious bleeding cleric, roll damage. Don’t forget your favored enemy bonus."
"You fail to notice the pit in front of you as you direct your horse to walk into it."
"The mugger then proceeds to shoot his friend in the foot"
"the opponent sneezes and accidentally stabs himself to death"
"You try to pick the door, but the door picks you. You’ve been impaled."
"You let go of the bow instead of its string, and it hits you in the face before falling at your feet."
me: can i just pretend like i totally meant to do that
//rolls a nat 20 on a bluff check
"Everyone totally saw that but it looked like you completely meant to do that."
"Right. The archer in the tree just shot himself in the foot. With a Longbow. He is now pinned to the tree with a clothyard shaft. Oh look. You’re all next."
"You try to hide all of the jewelry you just found from the rest of your party, but are so clutzy that you end up spilling all of it and most of your gold. The stoned cleric next to you sees everything."
While participating on a panel devoted to showrunners at WonderCon Anaheim Saturday, Rockne S. O’Bannon (Revolution) provided an update on the movie version of one of his most beloved, cancelled shows: Farscape.
“We are, in fact, in the script stage of a Farscape feature,” O’Bannon announced to a packed house that couldn’t be more excited.

The worlds of “Lost Girl" and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" are colliding.
In "Lost Girl" Season 5, “Buffy” actress Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia Chase) is joining the fae-tastic cast as a guest star. Carpenter will be playing a character by the name of Freyja, who’s well-known in mythology as the most renowned of the Norse goddesses. Perhaps one of the most interesting facts about Freyja is she rides a a boar with golden bristles — here’s hoping that “Lost Girl” picks up on that. The powers-that-be behind the show insist that Freyja will have a definite “Lost Girl” twist, so we’ll just have to wait until Season 5 starts up in the fall of 2014 to find out more about the character.
Production has just begun on the fifth season of the hit Showcase series. Season 5 of “Lost Girl,” which features 13 hour-long episodes, will be shot in and around Toronto. “Lost Girl” was a hit for Showcase in 2014, and it was the winner of the 2014 CSA Fan Choice Award for Favourite Canadian Show.
In Season 5, Bo (Anna Silk) will go to hell and back to try and save the people she loves — her family. But she will discover that love is not always enough to keep her family together. When you go to hell, you’re bound to drag something evil back with you…
“‘Lost Girl’ will never take a rest from bringing you twists, turns, and surprises. Season 5 promises more intrigue than ever before,” said Jay Firestone, executive producer.
It’s been a crazy ass weekend, and Dame in particular is exhausted, so the full report plus a few pictures will go up tomorrow, but some initial thoughts:
- Dame is an attention whore, and Fae put up with her shit far better than Dame has a right to expect.
- Kelly Hu is amazing and the Twins…
Hey tumblr friends! Dame and Fae are going to be nerding out at ECCC 2014. We’ve got a lot of panels that we’re interested in, but we’ve planned a lot of time to just hang out and enjoy the floor! So say hi if you see us :)
