Oh gawd. Can't stop laughing.
I needed that. Thanks. :)
pure gold... I have been needing a laugh all day :)
"I'm attacking the darkness!"
"Are there any girls there?"
"Well, my character is like this 18th level priestess of ... oh, you meant as in the players? Right. No. Girls aren't allowed to roleplay, they're supposed to be fetching us beer and pizza."
Yes, you'll see Condaliesa Rice in the background on the right side behind W. trying to read what looks to be the FIEND FOILO. And on the left next to Powell is the Under Secretary of the Navy: Susan Morrisey-Livingstone reading her stats for her 12th level druid/ranger. (Snickering)
[From som_pos cross posting]
They're the ones without the ties.
"Any of the first level ones right?"
"No Donald, you cannot torture the kobold for information."
I must salute you for your Space Moose icon.
Damn, the games they play have got to be the coolest in the world. I bet george is a killer dm.
I can't see it myself. He can't think on his feet fast enough, and that party's way too big...
I think he meant that Dubya is, literally, a killer DM.
What are the 5.25" floppies there for?
For the C=64 next to them.
(Not sure what it is for though, not having been into the whole RPG thing myself.)
That's so that people who're not in the room (y'know, in the tavern, getting drunk) can play Gauntlet while they're waiting.
"Cheney, your lifeforce is running out!""Wolfowitz shot the food!"
"Bush Needs oil, Badly"
Forget the floppies, I'm just scared that I recognized the VIC-20. (Or is that a C-64? I don't remember which was darker...)
Pretty sure it's a C64. And you guys above have got it all wrong... Clearly, it's for keeping a map of the dungeon in, using GEOS Paint!
Yeah. That is so the old-model C64.
No, it's to calculate all the old-school to-hit modifications like spear +1 gets an extra +2 vs. AC 8, +1 for dexterity, level 8 fighter, leather armor +2, 50% cover, wait ... where was I?
Or maybe it's to keep track of the two-dozen polearm variants.
I wonder if there's any intentional symbolism to the fact that Bush is behind the DM screen, but it's actually Cheney who has the DMG?
He's a goddamnned rules lawyer, that's why he's got the DMG.
god youd think as leader of the 'free-world', after 4 years at some point he would've taken some classes to help with the silly faces. Or at least stop allowing camera's everywhere he goes.
Save vs. Republican. :D
found through som_pos comm.
I just love how deep in thought Powell looks. lol
(Also found in som_pos community)
He's trying to decide how to spend his skill points.
"Then Trogdor Smote the Kerrak, and all was laid to burnednation. He he he, I made a funny"
GW Bush as the DM ? You think that guy really knows what's going on ?
BTW - Scary conspiracy for the day (confirmation either way very welcome): GWB is a member of the infamous "Skull and Bones".
And so is Kerry!
Actually, they're not any more. Bush was kicked out in the late eighties when he gave up drinking alcohol -- if you can't participate in the ceremonies, you can't be a member -- and Kerry lost his membership when he married someone who'd been married before, ie Heinz.
gave up drinking, My ass!
he'd be a total montie hall GM.
"so like.. there's some treasure here. uhh. [rolls]"
According to the History Channel, it was true. His father got him in. Only three presidents were in it, and while I forget the name of the third, they were all sucky ones, iirc.
Secret society, my ass. You'd think intelligence would be part of the membership criteria. ;)
as a matter of fact, this is the first election where the skull and bones members are from the same class/year. we've had s&b prez's for a while now.
I'm glad to see at least that the leaders of the free world play 1st Ed.
A (not so) subtle commentary on conservative agenda? I'll take the modern D20, thank you. ;-)
There a good string of Dorktower comics re: old school gaming starting here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/dorktowerfeed/37230.html
"I attack the gazebo."
I shoot the gazebo with magic missile....
The gazebo attacks and kills you!
if bushie played, i bet that gazebo-story would have come outof one of his games. i mean, c'mon -- gross distortion of facts, misunderstandings of basic english? right up his alley...
So funny! Can't breath.........
Unfortunately, Dubya probably considers gamers to be a bunch of devil-worshipping evil doers.
Which wouldn't surprise me.
But then again...he may not. :P
"I attack with my *MAGIC*MISSILE*."
Your icon comes from the best episode of Angel, ever. You officially are a cool person for it.
Does he have to be dungeon master because it is his house?Thank you for the laugh.
Nice. I especially like how they're using the first edition MM.
Also, I'll bet he's the worst DM ever.
Heh. Dubya: "You miss." "What do you mean, I miss? I'm using my Hackmaster +12!" "I rolled and it says you miss. So shut up. No, in fact, because you brought that up, you die. A big rock falls out of the sky on yer head. I'm DM, so shut up and take it."
"So, y'all descend into the depths of the dungeons of the Evil Warlord Saddam ...."
"Okay, you enter Iraq... you're attacked by a Terrorist!""What?! That's ridiculous, there are no terrorists in Iraq!""There are!""NO! Right here in the rulebook, it says that Saddaminator doesn't get along with the Terrorist Leader!""THERE ARE BECAUSE I SAY THERE ARE!""Fine! I cast a fireball at him!""But there are civilians present!""They might save."
"They might save."
Donald : man I can't belive my army faild its move silently check, they'll totaly notice me invading Iraq.
Dubbya : well my monster's are 40th, level they'll kill all the party if you don't give me the treasure.
Colin : time to cheat my hit points.
Cant . . . stop . . . laughing . . .
Oh yeah! Gonna use that as my wallpaper at work when it comes close to November! ^_^
"Rock falls! Everyone dies!"
"ROCK FALLS! EVERYONE DIES!"
o/` Rocks fall, everybody diesDeath comes raining from the skies! o/`
Bloody brilliant. Have trouble stopping laughing right now...
