Meet my new children
god remember when the pokemon anime was so desperate to keep up ash’s losing streak that they made some random dude bust out two fucking legendaries at the sinnoh league, raising a shit ton of questions all just to keep ash from winning anything
that was the player character
me explaining to the other trainers that apricorns are unknown outside of Johto because of deliberate suppression by the Silph and Devon corporations to present artificial pokeballs as the only means of capturing pokemon and establish regional monopolies after they eliminate renewable sources
when Lemony Snicket wrote “I will love you if I never see you again, and I will love you if I see you everyday” that hurt me
Full paragraph hurts even more.
“ (…) I will love you as we find ourselves farther and farther from one another, where once we were so close… I will love you until your face is fogged by distant memory. I will love you no matter where you go and who you see, I will love you if you don’t marry me. I will love you if you marry someone else and I will love you if you never marry at all, and spend your years wishing you had married me after all. That is how I will love you even as the world goes on its wicked way.”
my favourite trope is “antagonist and protagonist narrowly avoiding each other in the same space” and The Emperor’s New Groove nails it perfectly I wish more media did stuff like this
Emperor’s New Groove was ahead of its time for a multitude of reasons lmao
Instead of dice have your players earn their results. Telling jokes or singing for charisma checks, completing homework for intelligence checks, breath holding contests for condition checks, attempting to stab or shoot other players for attack rolls. Get them to identify more with their characters!
Rats are so easy to please. I shoved some sweet potato into cardboard toilet paper tubes, packed in with shredded paper towels. At first they were just excited about the paper towel shreds and started making a nest, then they found the sweet potato and lost their minds. Like they couldn’t believe what a good and gracious world they lived in that there could be sweet potato and paper towel at the same time.
