Review: Wanderhome is a Redwall-inspired indie RPG that arms players with dialogue, not daggers

This is the first line in playbook for The Veteran, one of 15 classes in the highly-anticipated new tabletop RPG, Wanderhome. Created by independent designer Jay Dragon, on the surface it’s a pastoral fantasy perfect for adventurers who want to dangle their furry toes in the waters of a springtime stream.

C'mon, admit it, you wish that he was your grandpa.

Old Man Henderson - 1d4chan

The legend of Old Man Henderson is a crazy-ass tale about a player who accidentally figured out how to "win" at Call of Cthulhu (only it was really Trail of Cthulhu). Proof that great times can be had, even if bad GMs want to run stupidly brutal grimdark horror campaigns. As an icon to fa/tg/uys and ca/tg/irls the world round, Old Man Henderson is the equivalent of what Jesse James is to Americans, Ned Kelly to Australians and Robin Hood to everyone else.

At the time, NPC — an acronym for the gaming term “non-playable character” — had been weaponized by trolls in an attempt to “own the libs” by calling them automatons, but it was still a relatively niche meme very few outlets had touched. Along with a couple of stories before it, the Times’ article kicked off a domino effect: its publication prompted popular members of the alt-right — including Paul Joseph Watson and Infowars — to amplify the meme to their audiences through YouTube videos, articles, and tweets.

The Szechuan sauce fiasco proves Rick and Morty fans don’t understand Rick and Morty - Polygon. The third season of Rick and Morty began with a convoluted story in which series villain Rick breaks out of prison before breaking up his daughter’s marriage.

There’s also a huge battle that includes many Ricks from other dimensions as the story folds back over itself and past seasons, and the whole thing ends with a wonderfully nonsensical speech about how this all happened so Rick can get more of a promotional dipping sauce from McDonald’s. The joke, which plays with the show’s theme that Rick is empty, alone and despondent despite having everything he could ever ask for, is that all that work was done for a silly, arbitrary reason.
