-You'll notice Satine's new PC appears to be a bard in this episode. You may also have noticed that bards are strictly prohibited by my house-rules. I myself have noticed: 1) Satine doesn't always read things very carefully, 2) Satine, being kind of a hippie, has a peculiar knack for getting excited about ideas in the rules and setting that I myself find totally boring, and 3) It all worked out anyway so I don't really care very much.
-Realtime it's months later and Connie/Jinx still has terrible luck and she still blames it all on not having that leopard skin coat. Let it never be said I don't know my players. (Scroll down to "L".)
-One thing I like about this episode is it shows everybody's doing their thing: Connie's being fucking balls-out, Mandy's being on-point, Satine's being completely 3.5--faithfully roleplaying her lovingly-crafted and optimized character, Justine's being intense and Frankie's being...Frankie.
And Kimberly's rolling high. Unfortunately, catching a fish is a roll-under mechanic in my game.
-If I were a more boring person, I'd probably chastise myself for constantly telling jokes in the middle of her trying to role play. However, it's important to note that I am not.
-Satine: "I didn't want to be violated." Really?...
Like I said--she's a true role-player.
-Connie's more of a method actress, but is suspiciously good at role-playing "drunk halfling". However, for players who need a little nudging I feel a need to develop a d100 "What You're Like When You're Drunk" table. Seriously. Also useful for confusion, hallucination, or stunning effects. Next time I'm stuck in an airport with wi-fi expect to read about it.
