Steve: Selkies are classic dude. They're like real mythology or something.
Zack: I'm beginning to get the feeling about a fourth of D&D monsters are shapeshifters designed to trick people into having sex with something scary or gross.
Steve: It's not like the Selkie Crying Games you though dude. She's all hot and makes a move and then after you do it she turns into a seal.
Zack: You're basically doing it with an animal if you have a baby with this thing. It's a seal.
Steve: Uh, no, it's a shapeshifter, which is its own category.Zack: "Arrr, I be married to the seal."
Steve: I can't agree with your logic, but having been on the receiving end of many a trick lady in D&D, I will agree with your basic premise. D&D is very hard on true romantics like me.
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.
