Welcome aboard, landlubbers, for the 2nd episode of character generation, wherein:

- Tina searches for a drink, or even just a drinking utensil;
- Baked goods are weaponized;
- Monty Python is quoted behind the GM’s back.
Fin – rolling up a cat Wildling ninja.

(Editor’s note: Some amount of noise caused by ‘phone interferences have been inexpertly removed 10 minutes into the recording, but listeners may still experience clicks and pops. Apologies all round.)December 18, 2013 at 11:15 am #642499
10 minutes – Max is having trouble with names, especially the spelling:
Ross: “Spell it however you want, you’re talking to the most dyslexic person on the planet.” *Points* “He’s dyslexic as well.”
Fin: “Once lived in a household filled with dyslexic archaeologists.” 😉
Wayne: “Yeah, signed up for chemistry, but…”December 18, 2013 at 11:15 am #642500
Fin is right, being one-eyed is just as bad as being totally blind, from the point of view of the Savage Worlds rules; both cases are major hindrances. 😮
Similarly, having only one arm (or leg) is just as bad as being completely arm- or legless.
WTF?! 🙁December 18, 2013 at 11:15 am #642501
Max: “I feel that I should put more points in cooking.”
Fin: “No, you’ve spent more than enough on the novelty skill already.”
By the way, Ross – Did you get the suggestion for Max’ character being a battle muffin baker from reading Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books, or somewhere else?December 18, 2013 at 11:21 am #642502
Listening to Wayne bragging about the culinary exploits of his talented halfling chef in the Warhammer game is very intriguing. Any chance of hearing more episodes of your Lichemaster recordings, BAGgies? 🙂 Pretty please? With egg soup on top?December 18, 2013 at 11:22 am #642503
8 minutes – Ross is looking for something to sharpen his pencil with:
Ross: “There’s generally not a shortage of sharp implements in my conservatory.”
Wayne: “As my big toe will testify.” 🙁
Fin: “Is there actually any lead in your pencil, Ross?” 😉
Ross: “…Not any more!”
Tina: “We discussed this previously.”
Ross: “Shame really, I’ve got a couple of people who could do with top-notch genetic material.”
