Zack: Welcome to the Erotic Monster Manual.
Steve: Maybe it's the barely-swaddled rack or the muscly butt sticking out, but I think you just had the best idea ever in history.
Zack: An erotic monster manual?
Steve: Uhhhh yeah, dude. The magical powers of D&D plus the untamed eroticism of fantasy artwork. Picture an orc.
Steve: Now picture an orc version of that Matrix woman with the big hooters and she's like taking a bath in oil so she's all greasy and she has an axe and she's getting ready to kill like a snake coming out of the bath. No, better dude, a naga. A hot-faced naga that was in the bath, like think about the erotic scenarios of that.Zack: This is the worst thing you've ever thought of.
Steve: Uh, wrong, 100%. Do you have any idea how much money Boris Vallejo makes? It's got to be like 40,000 dollars a year. We could probably make at least half that much if we did an Erotic Monster Manual. Then we'd have all the RPG books we'd ever need.
Zack: With each word you type I hate you more and more.Steve: Don't hate the player, son, hate the game!!
Zack: Alright, I hate Dungeons & Dragons.Steve: Now I know you're just kidding around.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
