    Saw Venom: Let there be Carnage yesterday.

    While it's a bit weird seeing portrayals of Venom and Carnage that are noticeably softer than what I'm used to, and much goofier in Venom's case, the movie was overall dumb fun. Not great and something of a mess, but entertaining enough for me to enjoy it.

    The midcredits scene however is pretty huge for the implications it brings. It'll be interesting to see how that all plays out.

    Despite the collision of circumstances that led us there, I have fond memories of how we got nuked and losing half our party fleeing like fools. I pictured a much more competent character than how Preston actually turned out being with his one bad stealth roll and no other contributions of note so it was great
    Preston got really unlucky. Like you say - he had that one tragically bad stealth fumble, then before he could see much action, he was exploded on a hillside.

    Aw shucks ^_^ I can't remember where I was going with her, if anywhere, character-wise. Playing a blind psychic introduced some interesting challenges, I can say that.
    Both great characters. Very different to each other as well.

    ‘Vanna was certainly a lot calmer, but I loved Ardy’s struggle against her own demons.

    Good to know! If I start up again - won't be for a while, stuff happening - I'll announce it here.

    I would rather one or two posts a week - solid ones - than a ton of rapid, one-liners.

    That's...partly my fault as well. I should have pointed out that your character was going to come up short on action. No worries, man.

    Next game will be more of a travelling one, with more world exploration (but still plenty of discussion, possible intrigue, that kind of thing).

    Ardy was another great character, Subby, and if you decided to bring her back no worries.

    Aw shucks ^_^ I can't remember where I was going with her, if anywhere, character-wise. Playing a blind psychic introduced some interesting challenges, I can say that.
    And yet you did really well with her. :D

    That's a positive way of looking at her, thank you! ^_^ The original version is still going in my tabletop game - she's kind of a half-Player Character. I handle her RP as an NPC, the player of another character (her brother) handles her in combat along with their character.

    Somewhere around level 7 she went completely berserk in a city (Eye of the Hurricane for those who want to know), and the group had to fight like mad to keep her from annihilating the place. She just about killed three of them before the psychic managed to shut her down.

    The group is level 9 now and desperately hoping it doesn't happen again because it's possible they'll need to kill her this time (and that result is somewhat...uncertain).

    Despite the collision of circumstances that led us there, I have fond memories of how we got nuked and losing half our party fleeing like fools.

    Feel badly about Preston, myself. :( Wish you could have stuck around.

    Always enjoyed your characters and writing. Sad to not see it, but completely understand.

    For what it's worth, I very much enjoyed my time with Corim and Samuel, though the latter was a shortlived thing. Alas process of relying on other creators and the mental load of the system stuff just kind of drags me down and I don't have the taste for it in me.

    Also, I have becoming increasingly worse at doing collaborative storytelling as I've gotten older and more crabby haha.

    Totally understood.

    I get that as well. Somehow I'm 100% able to separate 'games' from 'writing', because I cannot, CANNOT collaboratively write 'fiction' with anyone. I've tried. Drives me bonkers (and probably them, too).

    Probably because I had decades of playing tabletop before PBP, so when I start PBP games it just becomes 'gaming' in my head rather than 'story-writing'.

    I hope this goes well for you and everyone. Sounds like it could be fun.

    Thanks - it's likely a good year off, at the moment.

    Eh, I liked Sony's portrayal Carnage and Cletus well enough, but the relationship of Carnage and Cletus didn't fully sit well with me. I suppose that it's because I'm too used to the comic depiction of being Cletus being the dominant one of the two as well as the fact that they generally have a amicable relationship. And it's disconcerting to see Cletus so serious since he typically exhibits a dark and macabre sense of humor similar to Deadpool's, or being played up as a sympathetic character(I mean, Carnage is arguably even more of a monster than the Joker, who at least was hinted to be a decent human being at some point in his life before he went insane). But again, that's just me nitpicking
