The party has started!

Everyone who is playing should have recieved a PM including any information regarding their role (even if the PM just says 'You have no role'). There are two weremods - I will not reveal how many of the other roles there are.

One of these days in my Pathfinder group I'm going to be playing a Lawful Stu---, I mean, Good paladin who really will be like that... the kind who is entirely quixotic and talks in exclamation points all! the! time!

And I will laugh, because as a whole our group tends toward Chaotic Neutral, if anything.

Weatherwax = me in that my skin is equally pasty, and I am equally terrible with accepting compliments.

weatherwax seems to be protected from banning by sheer virtue of being the only identifiable female participating.

Go about 5 minutes into this youtube video and you'll get an idea of where I was going with it.

Will post evil monologue either later this evening or the next. Until then, anyone who wishes to submit a list of cheesy villainy cliches for me to incorporate into said speech is more than welcome.

You're going to put ALL those in? Good luck!

Aren't some of them contradictory? Take these two for example:

I was looking more for motivation for why I did my dastardly deeds, like an oppressive childhood, daddy issues, or maybe all I really ever needed was a hug. Stuff like that. We all know this is meta, so I'm going to be lampshading the hell out of it.

Not necessarily:

Big Bad: Don't make me destroy you. We can rule together as father and son.
Son: No! It's not true! I'll never join you!
Big Bad: Oh, well, I guess I'll have to kill you then.
Son: I don't understand how you could have become so evil. Why are you doing all this?
Big Big: Since you're going to die anyway, why not tell you?

And it's not like I expected him to use all of them (although that would be awesome). It's just a Buffet of Badness that he can choose from at will.

I am going to have a throne, but it'll be more like a lounging easy chair. Or maybe a hammock. Of Evil.

One of the reasons I love Nicodemus from the Dresden Files so is that he's a bad guy that's smart enough to avoid the pitfalls of evil mastermind-dom.

Life has me in a choke hold and his good friend Mr. Writer's Block is giving my kidneys a good workover. That and I'm having a difficult time trying to think of something appropriate to say. I'll try and hammer out my Evil Mastermind response this Friday.
