The grey face seems to chuckle.. as they note the magic in the childs hand. "Yer would really kill for ye mage friend?" the grey asked. "Even 'ough 'e may 'ate yer for it?" the grey chuckled before letting the spell loose, casting it towards an waiting entrance to another timeline. The grey then proceeded to make an grey fireball appear around their hand. "Betch'yer wouldn't do it."

“kill you? no…mangle you to the point where you CAN’T do anything? I’m all for that,” Rei hisses. She shoots off her own fireball in your direction.


No idea where these are from originally, but just randomly came across these Team Sparia photos online tonight, and… Well, they’re new to me. And they’re amazing. 

UPDATED: Thanks to Kris on twitter for letting me know that these were actually taken by Andy Reaser!

the haunting of castle malloy is just so … comfortingly weird to me. i don’t begrudge it anything. i’m here for all of it: the bewilderingly unconcerned bride, the black-eyed third wheel of a love triangle with his land development deals, its insane banshee-child jetpacking through the moors, its Classic Irish Juice Bar, its jetsons-level sheep-shearing technology, the fact that they insist on printing wedding invitations by hand, nancy’s blatant disregard for road safety by driving with a cell phone, those tiny dolls, the giant secret underground rocket scientist lair

everything you could tick off about this game i love with my whole heart. i don’t just tolerate it, i’m like, WOW WHAT A GAME.

I absolutely cannot wait for the upcoming HBO TV show based on George R.R. Martin’s Wild Cards novels and short stories. Fun fact: the books were based on GRRM’s tabletop Champions game (the Tick was also based on a Champions game, as was a lot of Astro City).

The premise is that an alien virus rocks the world, which doesn’t affect the same person twice: some “draw the Black Queen,” some people are turned inside out, others spontaneously combust. Many are turned into monsters or “draw the Joker,” who have a whole weird section of New York, Jokertown, where visitors wear masks to fit in. Finally, some “draw an ace,” and get super powers. Card playing metaphors abound: the first great superteam are called “the Four Aces.”

People expect a very dark take on superheroes because it’s George R.R. Martin, but remember, this was pre-Watchmen, so while heroes boned and cussed, the story doesn’t question any element of the genre. This isn’t “Heroes,” this isn’t realistic science fiction. One of the main characters is an artificially intelligent robot with a clear dome brain, and alien invasion is a plot point (the aliens can best be described as the Ferengi crossed with the Iron Bank of Braavos). 

There are all kinds of wonderful characters. Yeoman might be the coolest no-powers “archery guy” ever. There’s also the Turtle, a telekinetic always attacking from a shell-like travel vehicle who can move buildings with his mind, but who turns fragile if his shell is ever broken.

Another move on the chess board. Tabloids, even the sun, don’t base articles off ig posts. And private ones at that. This was delayed til he got back from Chicago so they could add it all in.
All set up for the end game. Tick tock.


Super Mario 64 - Tick Tock Clock Upwarp $1,000 Bounty

Pannenkoek - Recently, a video by twitch user DOTA_TeaBag was brought to my attention, in which he did an upwarp in Tick Tock Clock. I believe this is a new, unexplored glitch, but unfortunately I have been unsuccessful at recreating it myself. Thus, I’m putting a bounty of $1000 on the glitch. 

The submission should be a .m64 and .st file, which when played perform the glitch. To submit, you can zip up these files, upload to TinyUpload.com, and then send me the link in a comment or private message. The bounty will hold until the first person successfully submits a recreation of the glitch, at which point I will add the word [CLAIMED] to the end of this video’s title, and then no one else will be eligible for the prize.

My apologies for the mass greeter, I didn’t want to clog dashes up with greeter after greeter. I’m sure you all would get sick of it


Hello everyone, my name is Doze. And I’m number two of The Felt. My time ability is slowing down time for myself, which may be obvious by how long this took me to post. I’m very sorry about that
