    Man, calling a brother out, again. Surefire way to get responses.

    My arm smells like “arm”, BTW.

    You guys have this wonderful way of getting off on tangents, like the arm thing, or the circle of ghosts, yet somehow keep it all interesting and entertaining.

    Great roleplaying all around, I’m really enjoying this series. The characterisations and scene setting has been so good that I was pleasantly surprised when plot happened at the end. Well done!

    I gotta say I’m loving Cecil, Chris is realling killing it with his drooly voice.

    Now that it’s established that Jareth’s arm make everything stored in it stinky, I’m really looking forward to the fallout when it’s time to restrore the (highly absorbant) doll back to its owner. That is, of course, if Jareth doesn’t burn it first.

    • Chris

      Thank you sir! Cecil is one of my favorite characters to play. Expect him to start talking about pinochle an awful lot.

  • My arm smells like… audience participation! And it smells good… ahhhh…

    I wish I could have gotten a chance to play Candlewick Manor. I almost got to play before the game was canceled and instead become a normal Monsters and Other Childish things game. I was going to play a character named Ellina Demochev, a foreign Dampire kid that had a craving for blood. She had a Wicked Fangs power that she could drink blood and regenerate damage as well as a Mist Body power that allowed her to turn into a mist . I made her pretty creepy looking with pale skin, sharp fingernails, blood red eyes and fangs. She often would wear a cloak with a hood as sunlight made her uncomfortable. I ended up porting the character as a weird kid for another Monsters and Other Childish Things game.

    Loving the game. Highlight had to be the interaction between Dotty, Cecil, and the ghosts.

    Also my arm smells like saltine crackers

    • RyGuy

      I think that was a highlight for all of us. We played that session way back in April, and I still laugh whenever I think of it.

      “That’s my private time, ghost!”

  • Journ-O-LST-3

    The ghosts were the high point for me too, just ahead of the car. So many bright things just laying around.

  • Chados

    I started sniffing my arm when everybody else was doing it. I got the impression of… driftwood? I don’t know why.

    Also, Hi, Colleen!

    The graveyard scene was very funny- laughing-out-loud-at-work, funny. Poor Cecil.
