We don't all have guns, we just like for you to think we do.

...the U.K. Foreign Office’s main concern is that Americans just won’t appreciate the wacky humor for which the British are justly famed; British travelers in the United States, they warn, should refrain from making “flippant remarks about bombs or terrorism, especially when passing through US airports.”

#GrenzTour2015 Day Six (Monday): Burglengenfeld - Regensburg, 43 km.

We bicycled down the remaining length of the Naab, visiting another abbey along the way, before reaching the Danube and shortly thereafter Regensburg. After checking in at the hostel at 3 pm, we had plenty of time for sightseeing. There were an enormous number of American tourists around, but I could see their point - unlike many other German cities, the Old Town survived the bombing of WWII virtually intact, so there were a high number of scenic old buildings in the area.

Highlights included the St. Emmeram Basilika, with graves dating back to the 8th century and funery art worthy of Warhammer 40K, the Grand Cathedral, and remains of Roman walls (pictured below) - these were originally built in 179 and excavated in 1885.

#GrenzTour2015 Day Five (Sunday): Weiden - Burglengenfeld, 73 km.

We followed the Naab further downriver. The scenery was no longer as spectacular as on our previous days, but pleasant enough. Highlights were Nabburg, which was a fortress town built high up on a hill, and our destination Burglengenfeld (pictured below) which also had a fairly vertical arrangement. In the evening we hiked up to a local castle, but sadly it was closed.

I disagree. After all, museums here in Germany have the swatiska flag of the Third Reich, so there is no reason why American museums shouldn't likewise showcase the flags of the Confederacy.

And crappy museum exhibitions are a reason for creating better exhibitions instead of shying away from certain topics.

#GrenzTour2015 fourth day (Saturday): Cheb-Weiden, 77 km.

We cross the border to Bavaria, passing by an ostrich farm on our way to Waldsassen Abbey. The library in particular is spectacular - it comes complete with secret stairways hidden by bookshelves, and wooden statues that look different depending on your current position. If I ever become a crazed millionaire, I want a library like this! Sadly, photography was not allowed, so the picture shows the main chapel instead.

Bavaria is more experienced in catering to tourists than either the Czech Republic or Saxony, which meant that bicycle signposts are everywhere - frequently showing several different routes to the same destination. However, we still managed to get lost a few times by venturing away from them, but were rewarded by a side trip through the Waldnaabtal, a forested river valley with scenery porn like you see in the... more »

Bavaria is more experienced in catering to tourists than either the Czech Republic or Saxony, which meant that bicycle signposts are everywhere - frequently showing several different routes to the same destination. However, we still managed to get lost a few times by venturing away from them, but were rewarded by a side trip through the Waldnaabtal, a forested river valley with scenery porn like you see in the better type of fantasy RPG video games. I submitted several Ingress portals there - future generations of players might either curse or praise me for these portals which lir many kilometers away from the nearest toad.

We wanted to end today's trip in Weiden, but everything inside the town was booked out because of a city festival. Fortunately I was able to find a place to stay in a nearby village, and I lead our group there in a tight race against a thunderstorm, with lightning flashing in the background. We arrived literally one minute before the downpour started.___

#GrenzTour2015 third day (Friday): Bad Elster - Cheb, 37 km.

We head over to the Czech Republic. As my bicycle makes some strange noises along the way, we decide to stay in Cheb for the night so that I can get it checked by a bicycle mechanic, though first we head to another spa town, Františkovy Lázně (pictured below).

Google Maps apparently doesn't have any bicycle routes stored for the Czech Republic, which makes navigation tricky, but after the second passersby tells us we should get on the highway into town, we relent.

The mechanics tell me my bicycle needs a general overhaul (perhaps not surprising, after 8,000 km of driving it), but there doesn't seem to be anything immediate that needs fixing and thus I will take my chances.

To those Americans who were disappointed by the recent Supreme Court ruling, let me point out that Germany does not have legalized same-sex marriage.

And immigrating to Germany is easy! All you need to do is invest at least one million Euros and create ten new jobs, and you will be able to get residency without any problems!

"Integriert" ist sowieso ein sehr schwammiger Begriff. Keiner kann ihn genau definieren, aber viele haben ein dumpfes Gefühl, wer nicht integriert ist - üblicherweise die, die etwas anders aussehen.

An den Deutschen: ich muss oft zu hören bekommen, dass Ausländer in Deutschland sich nicht mit der Bevölkerung intergriert, leben unter sich und reden ihren eigenen Sprache. 
In Afrika umgekehrt, wie meine Schwester gerade im Gespräch erwähnt hat: die Deutschen, sogar nach ca. 170 Jahren, haben sich nicht mit der Bevölkerung intergriert, leben unter sich und reden ihren eigegen Sprache. XD
It's a bit ridiculous XD

#GrenzTour2015 2nd day (Thursday): Bad Schlema - Bad Elster, 75 km.

In the morning we cycled along a log channel (see the picture) which was constructed in the 16th century in order to transport logs for nearly 10 miles.

Much of the region is impoverished since the mining industry died down, but the spa towns are still impressive - like Bad Elster, which features a massive bath built in 1852.

#GrenzTour2015 - 1st day (yesterday): 44 km.

We started in Chemnitz at 13:30 and ended in Bad Schlema, one of the many spa towns in the Erzgebirge (literally, "Ore Mountain Range"). It started as a spa town more than a hundred years ago thanks to Radon in the water, then (during the Cold War) the area was mind for uranium, and now it's a spa town again.

Not an officially certified spa town to my understanding, though - presumably, using Radon as a placebo for curing all sorts of ailments isn't sufficient for that.

Instead of Random Encounters, how about Random Drama Events?

I had an idea this morning while contemplating the "Jade Regent" Adventure Path for Pathfinder. There are quite a few campaigns that have a large number of recurring NPCs - in that campaign, the PCs accompany a large trade caravan to another continent, but plenty of other possibilities exist. In my current campaign, for example, the PCs started in a trade outpost which has turned into a colony they are governing, so obviously plenty of people live there whom the PCs would meet again and again. Further possibilties might be a large spaceship (like in Star Trek, or a Rogue Trader vessel), a space station, or a city-based campaign (whether fantasy, urban fantasy, cyberpunk, and so forth).

Instead of Random Encounters, how about Random Drama Events?

I had an idea this morning while contemplating the "Jade Regent" Adventure Path for Pathfinder. There are quite a few campaigns that have a large number of recurring NPCs - in that campaign, the PCs accompany a large trade caravan to another continent, but plenty of other possibilities exist. In my current campaign, for example, the PCs started in a trade outpost which has turned into a colony they are governing, so obviously plenty of people live there whom the PCs would meet again and again. Further possibilties might be a large spaceship (like in Star Trek, or a Rogue Trader vessel), a space station, or a city-based campaign (whether fantasy, urban fantasy, cyberpunk, and so forth).

However, while the GM might develop their personalities, all too often they fade into the background and get ignored for the most part - and I, as a GM, must confess I also don't do enough to bring this cast of NPCs to live.

So I thought to myself: If there are Random Encounters, and Random Encounter Tables, why not Random Drama Tables?

Here is how I would do it:

For each game session, you roll up a Random Drama event in advance - for especially Drama-heavy campaigns, you might roll twice or more, but in general it is assumed that the Drama represents the "B-Plot" of the session.

First, you need to create a random table listing your player characters, to establish which of the PCs initially are involved in the Drama (of course, the involved PCs are free to bring other PCs into the situation, but this table establishes who first encounters it). There is a 2-in-6 chance that two of the PCs will be involved (higher if you have especially large groups) - roll twice in that situation.

Furthermore, make a check mark next to the PC's name each time they become involved in a Drama - if they already have two checks, ingore that result. If every PC has at least one mark, remove one mark from all of them. This is in order to ensure that all PCs get involved in a Drama from time to time.

Next, you need to create lists of the NPCs in your campaign, and divide them into "A-Lists", "B-Lists", and "C-Lists". "A-List" NPCs are the most important NPCs in the campaign that the characters will interact with on a regular basis - in the Jade Regent campaign, it would be the "Big Four" whom all the PCs are supposed to be friends with. "B-List" characters are recurring cast who will show up fairly regularly, but who are not as prominent as the A-List characters. C-List characters are bit players who have been mentioned once or twice, or who might be entirely new characters who have never showed up before.

So whenever you need one or more NPCs involved in a Drama, first roll 1d100 for the type:

1-50: A-List
51-90: B-List
91-100: C-List

After that, you can roll on the A-List, B-List, and C-List tables which NPCs are involved in the Drama.

Finally, we need some random tables what the actual Drama is about. Of course, the types of possible plots are endless, and I expect to see myself mining the TV Tropes Wiki for this. There will be all sorts of subtables - you might get a Love and Romance subtable, a Comedy subtable, a Workplace subtable, and so forth.


The goal here is not to generate either combat encounter or traditional RPG plots - although of course these can result from the Drama - but provide more opportunities for role-playing and showcasing NPCs that would otherwise fade into the background. And, of course, the random tables are there to provide inspiration instead of constraining the GM - so a result doesn't make sense, the GM should feel free to dismiss it!

Your thoughts?___

Well, I'll back it. I enjoyed the previous version, and I am curious about what they will do this time.

Warning, ranty.

I know I am hardly the first person to ask this, but how the hell is the Charleston shooter not a terrorist? He choose the location for his massacre in order to inspire terror. The fact that it is also a "hate crime" doesn't conflict with it being also an act of terrorism - in fact, plenty of deeds fit in both category. Claims about him being "mentally disturbed" also don't change a thing, though until proven otherwise I will assume that he is not mentally ill but merely an evil racist bastard who took his bigotry further than most.

But yes, I have already seen people claim on the internet that the shooting somehow wasn't terrorism.

"Coexistence simply isn’t enough. As much as is made about this being the most diverse generation on the forefront of a racially shifting America, the end result is that a twenty-one year old white man was under the impression he was a soldier on the front lines of a race war. Visitors to Dylann Roof’s Facebook page will note the prominence of black friends. But racism has consistently proven itself deeper than ties of friendship or romantic relationships. Anti-racism, and the ability to confront and counter these ideas before they take deep root in young people, has been pushed to the wayside in favor of uncritical celebrations of diversity. But the simple presence of diversity is not enough to change deeply ingrained attitudes."

The Pathfinder Adventure Paths all look sort of neat, though I have read or played only few of them. I might contemplate running one of them one day. However, my favorite game system remains GURPS, so that's what I would probably use for the campaign.

But GURPS generally has fairly slow character advancement when compared to Pathfinder/d20. I could just hand out more character points (XPs) per session, but that doesn't quite feel right either - I like the slow pace.

And my by own conversion formula, you would increase about one Pathfinder "level" every eight game sessions (this is not as bad as it sounds since there is a lot of things you can spend your GURPS character points on). So I am wondering: Which of the Pathfinder Adventure Paths could best be "extended" by lots of side adventures and plots without breaking the main campaign?

Dungeon idea: From time to time, the forces of Faerie (or some other spiritual plane) imbue an otherwise mundane animal with their power, causing it to grow as large as a hill. Upon its death, it turns to stone,  and caves form in its body which quickly attract the usual dungeon-dwelling critters.

The German government shares the French concern about armed Americans. “In the United States, it is relatively easy for people to obtain weapons,” the Foreign Ministry advises German travelers. “If you are a victim of an armed robbery, do not try to fight back!”

Like the French, German tourists are advised to take American prudishness into account: “Nudism” and even “nude bathing on the beach” may be construed as indecent exposure by the Americans. The German government also urges its citizens to refrain from taking photos of naked children or babies, including their own, since Americans are inclined to see pedophilia in even the most innocent photos of babies in the bathtub: To U.S. law enforcement officials, “the line between ‘sexually suggestive’ photos and harmless family pictures is blurred.” And never, ever leave your child unsupervised: Americans may lock you up ifyou leave a child under ... more »

We don't all have guns, we just like for you to think we do.

...the U.K. Foreign Office’s main concern is that Americans just won’t appreciate the wacky humor for which the British are justly famed; British travelers in the United States, they warn, should refrain from making “flippant remarks about bombs or terrorism, especially when passing through US airports.”___The German government shares the French concern about armed Americans. “In the United States, it is relatively easy for people to obtain weapons,” the Foreign Ministry advises German travelers. “If you are a victim of an armed robbery, do not try to fight back!”

Finally, German tourists are warned not to get sick in the United States — healthcare in the United States costs so much that “often it is cheaper … to fly back to Germany and deal with [your medical problems] here.”

Mir war schon immer klar, daß Guttenberg seine Dissertation nicht selbst geschrieben hat. Wer zunächst versucht, eine zu 63.8% plagiierte Arbeit als "ein paar Flüchtigkeitsfehler" abzutun, der weiß selber nicht, was da verzapft wurde.

I need to improve my drawing skills so that I can do this for my next group, wherever that might be...

I made drawings of the 5E game party I’ve been running for 7 months now. They’re a bunch of reckless, mildly sociopathic and absolutely politically incorrect knuckleheads but they’re my knuckleheads and I hope they’ve been enjoying their shenanigans as much as I do. c:___I need to improve my drawing skills so that I can do this for my next group, wherever that might be...

Seriously, come to Germany instead. There are no tuition fees, including for foreigners. And many universities offer English-language courses and degrees, so you don't even need to know all that much German to start with.

As a white male, I feel unqualified to speak about the Rachel Dolezal situation. So I thought I should just share a black woman's thoughts on the issue.

Hey, look! It's my favorite anti-science lobbyists!

I don't think they know what those words actually mean...

And yes, I'm aware that it's mostly about where there's money and not about what they actually know, which makes it all around scarier.___Hey, look! It's my favorite anti-science lobbyists!

I hate flying. I am not afraid of heights, and neither am I motion sick. But the sheer crampedness of the seats, with my knees pressing into the metal bits of the seat in front of me, always makes for a highly unpleasant experience for the several hours I am forced into them.

Oh well, at least it is over - for this time. But the prospect of one day being able to fly Business Class on business trips is an incentive for further career climbing...
