Hoping a blog like sixpenceee picks up this post, because I think it’s really cool.
I was working in a pub today, and an old man and his wife were sat at the bar showing everybody this picture. According to them it was taken at an old textiles mill, now a museum, in my area. The man claims to be a sceptic, as does his wife, but neither of them can find a way to explain this picture. They claim that the seats behind the man were empty when this picture was taken, but a hand and face are clearly visible. I thought this was really cool and wanted to share it with everyone
It’s a set of cards that D&D game masters and storytellers in general can use to fill a scene with NPCs and random characters to interact with. Each card has a unique character (illustrated by me), and includes tavern stats and personality traits to help build stories.
A lot of the characters will be created using ideas from backers, meaning that you can have your character illustrated by me and it will appear on the cards if you back the project at Bartender and Proprietor levels!
Please check out the Kickstarter and back if you can/want! These guys are just a taste of the fun and wacky characters I’ve been working on! Click the link!
For money money, the most interesting thing about this confrontation is how completely it inverts the final scenes of a typical Disney film. In most cases, the hero is physically and/or supernaturally outmatched, and triumphs through determination and ingenuity; here, the villain spends the the whole fight running scared, while the protagonist casually no-sells everything that’s thrown at him. And there’s no ironic Disney Death keeping the protagonist’s hands clean, either. Jack just straight-up murders Oogie with malice aforethought while Oogie is running away - and by having Santa Claus himself strike the final blow, the film legitimises Jack’s killing of Oogie as the morally correct course of action.
You don’t fuck around with the motherfucking pumpkin king
