At the height of its power, Rome once seriously considered giving up its British holdings entirely. The reason? Queen Boudica, whose brutal revenge spree made her the Roman bogeyman for generations. She killed 70,000 people, burnt London to the ground, established herself as the most famous headhunter of all time - and to this day, Britain loves her for it.

You can stop emailing me about her now. More after the cut.

i like the term ‘gender alignments’ because it presents new identities such as: lawful gender, gender evil, and the ever mysterious gender gender.

Pft. Gender-gender does random gender things just ‘cause.

The party battles giant killer frogs with their crossbow, magic sword, and laser rifle and pistol.  (Denis Beauvais, credited as Dennis, from D&D Expert module DA2: Temple of the Frog by Dave Arneson and David Ritchie, TSR, 1986.)  The temple part of this adventure is adapted directly from the sample dungeon included in D&D Supplement II: Blackmoor in 1975, the first adventure ever published for an RPG, set in the first campaign world specifically created for a fantasy RPG.  Sci fi elements from other worlds were a part of D&D from the very beginning.

using nothing more than newton’s laws of gravitation, we astronomers can confidently predict that several billion years from now our home galaxy, the milky way, will merge with our neighbouring galaxy, andromeda. because the distances between the stars are so great compared to their sizes, few if any stars in either galaxy will actually collide.
any life on the worlds of that far off future should be safe, but they will be treated to an amazing billion-year-long lightshow.
a dance of a half a trillion stars, to music first heard on one little world, by a man who had but one true friend.

Where’s my goddamn transhuman robot body to house my consciousness?

Super bitter I’m gonna miss this. >:c

Oh stop whining and just steal a time machine like a normal person.
