hacker.man(ual)

Tl;dr in 1990 the Secret Service raided the home of a tabletop RPG creator because they were convinced GURPS Cyberpunk was, like. An actual hacking manual. Which on the face of it is very funny, but as Steve Jackson points out, the damage it did to the business forced me to lay off half my staff, which will never be funny.

Last Night on D&D…

A shopping trip for spells and components cleans out most of the party’s money, so Hands (Monk), Bud (Ranger/Rogue), and Billie (Rogue) go looking for opportunities for crime and gambling. The stumble across an underground fighting ring, and while Bud picks pockets, Hands narrowly defeats an orc we’ll call Ulf. Bets were placed at 15:1, and somehow the party’s winnings amount to 45,000 gold, which Billie is instructed to pick up later from a totally-not-shady-at-all address.

Laqis dress-ups.

Messing around with dress-ups for Laqis… also getting used to quick-and-dirty ways of painting/sketching in Clip Studio. Wings and tail not included for space/speed/laziness reasons.

The first is their “standard” outfit, the second for traipsing about the wilderness in the cold, then a ballgown, then a Fancyman Lord outfit, then SKYPIRATES!!!. Shiftweave, here we come!

DnDoodles.

More quick D&D doodles. DnDoodles.

Ziggy is a gnome artificer and would-be revolutionary who wants to stick it to House Cannith. The party found him running a brainwashing cult on behalf of Law-aligned outsiders, smashed up the cult in the Goat Incident, and somewhat forcibly removed him on behalf of an airship captain who totally isn’t a House Cannith operative in disguise no siree. The tiefling girl, Dara, was a former cult acolyte who followed the party partly to escape her abusive father (who until that point had been being “kept in check” with cult brainwashing; basically a lingering version of the calm emotions spell) and party to help Ziggy take down House Cannith. Laqis—who approves of neither House Cannith, brainwashing, abusive parents, nor sending children to do one’s dirty work—is apparently now Team Dad to Dara and enemy-of-my-enemies with Ziggy. Also possibly the new captain of an airship?

… and the adventures continue!

Rage with the machines.

More different Laqis from a separate, Eberron-based campaign; this time they’re a planar tiefling born in Adar in a coterminous manifest zone of Lamannia, because of course they are. Laqis is also an agrarian socialist whose budding mission involves bringing unionization to the warforged of Sharn.

For bonus points, the rest of the party:

The half-sea-elf hexblade, the budgerigar aarakocra ranger, and the warforged monk.
