This is inspiring me to modify the GURPS magic system to get a bonus from having an artefact that represents the effect you want to cause. The rarer the artefact, the more it helps the spell. That said, I'm not entirely sure what a cube used by some very bad people in a failed attempt to build a nuclear reactor would be good for, doubly so if the failure point of the project was mismanagement. Possibly a malicious bureaucracy curse?

@Canageek They're gonna ruin the day of a whole lot of aphids. There's an immense conflict taking place with bugs as the proxies, and we are only dimly aware of it...

I'm not sure how to work a swarm of labybugs so large it shows up on radar into an adventure, but I'm sure there is one in there somewhere. Does anyone have any ideas?

Imagine taking a pile of metal five times larger than the Big Island of Hawaii and burying it underground. That's roughly how much unexpected mass we detected

Paraphrased:
Me: We start a mob war and then have people pay us to get rid of the ghosts created by the unburied murder victims? We would be the least ethical ghost hunters ever.

him: No, we'd be less ethical if we actually murdered people and hid the bodies, then helped find and bury the bodies we hid.

Fantasy RPG where you're a team of archivists trying to get hold of an extremely rare computer game by any means necessary, as well as assembling the only device capable of correctly dumping a ROM image.

My taiko dojo sensei is suddenly Interested in figuring out a #taiko arrangement of "a classic #anime song" that our group could play and has asked me for suggestions.

Should be something that's recognizable to as many people as possible, so it should be from the top-tier of US recognizability (Naruto/Pokemon/Miyazaki/Sailor Moon level) and it needs to be rhythm-oriented enough to be recognizable from a mainly percussion arrangement, with ็ฌ› (bamboo flute) carrying the melody.

Any ideas?

Want to lend some flavour to an iron age game? How about that villain who's shield seems to be able to move around faster and always block blows...

Help me, Lazyweb: are there any good ways under #Ubuntu/#Gnome to prevent programs from launching except during certain hours? For example, if I want to limit my Steam usage to after 5 PM?

(This is not an invitation to tell me to use a different OS/distro/window manager.)

Is anyone up for trying the #fibercrafts circle again tomorrow night? I'll be at Tea Republik starting at 6pm, and ending at 8 if people show up. Please let me know if you'll be more than half an hour late so I don't get discouraged.
