Glitter Force Episode 1 : He's Mighty Mighty!

Sparkles and schoolgirl outfits, need I say more? This caught my eye on Netflix and I'm not disappointed so far.

The show starts out with the shortest origin story I've ever seen (Thank you!). Girl has dreams of becoming a magical girl, girl becomes magical girl and fights. Nice and easy!

So far I'm enjoying the animation (so much pink and glitter!!) and the fairy-tale influences.

My favourite line was when the Wolf summoned the giant house ."He's mighty mighty.' If this kind of humour continues I'll be hooked.

Forgot what pizza it was, it was too many days ago.

Games are on Tuesdays sometime around 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.


This time we re-did the battle against the Troglodytes (Trogs) that was unfinished from two weeks before. This allowed the introduction of the new character back from the last pit-stop at the Regent of the Mines.

We replayed the battle "formally" without glossing things over. There were 20 regular Trogs, 2 Leader Trogs and 1 Sub-Chief Trog.

Long Overdue Response

"If you were to compare starting SCHWA characters to AD&D1e characters, what level would they transfer to? 3rd? 2nd?"

Short answer: I wouldn't compare them to AD&D characters. Mostly because of the math.

In any iteration of D&D, even those games that are only nominally D&D, only a single die is used to determine success or failure, the d20. Bonuses and penalties are added to the result of the roll and the range of possible results is only 20 wide. It may be 1-20 or 17-36, but always only 20 wide.

C9A - Tony those nuts?

This chapter gave a brief glimpse into the Professors plan, which I confess I still don't understand!

I enjoyed the introduction of Tony Donuts, although his speech was a bit difficult to understand, I had to re-read the conversations a few times.

Right now I'm kind of on Tony's side, sometimes I want to see the bad guys win.

I enjoyed the punning and the punning response of kicking the side of the bed. From now on when I or someone else puns I'm going to kick a nearby object. What could go wrong?

icloud vs Cloud: Adding ‘i’ in front of something does not make it a new, innovative word.

The cloud is the storage and access of data and software hosted by a third party. It does not mean that your data is in some virtual space that can’t be touched; it’s still hosted on a physical data centre somewhere (just not yours!). It’s outside of your control, gives me the warm fuzzies just thinking about it.

Due to the absence of one Player (the one who won't eat plants on a pizza, including mushrooms even though we keep explaining they are not plants, let's not mention the bread it is baked on is made from wheat flour), we had a combination pizza without pepperoni (because we DID have the Player who won't eat pepperoni).

Games are on Tuesdays sometime around 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.


We had a new walk-in Player and we spent the evening rolling his Character up.

C10K - Hook, Line, and...

This chapter sees them bait the hook in the style of "The Sting." It also shows us the moral code used by protagonists in Spider Robinson's Callahan series.

There are some neat interactions and I laughed out loud three times while reading (much to the chagrin of someone sleeping beside me).

A book that makes me laugh is worth it's weight in gold.

This time my group had an large meat-lover's pizza with the pepperoni out and that meat they use for philly-cheesesteak in.

C9K - Carping the Diem

This chapter took us a little further into things; just a little. It was so awesome to see...

C8K The Prose and Cons of Rape Fiction

This story jumps off with rape, but the consensual kind and later mentions it again in the non-consensual way. 

There is more description of the House layout and why it's the best whorehouse ever built. Truly a house of pulchritude. 

This first chapter is the setup. Can the next fulfil expectations? My cup is ready.
