The Coalition Ethos and Aesthetic


Zack: Now that's just obnoxious. We get it! You love death!

Steve: Skulls are the primary building block of the Coalition. Pretty much their whole empire is skull-based. You name a mode of transportation and it has skulls.

Zack: Well I guess I don't have to name flying loaf of skull bread on a UFO.

Steve: Flying skull motorcycles. Skull tanks. They even have a walker that's just a skull with big cannons on it.

Zack: These guys are starting to piss me off.

Steve: They should, they're sorta the bad guys of Rifts.

Zack: Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Love Hitler. Skulls on everything. Never would have guessed.

Steve: Well, they're human though, so they aren't as evil as like the Splugorth.

Zack: I'm not even going to ask.

Steve: Yeah, that's a whole other issue, but they're the guys on the cover.

Zack: Okay, so what does the Coalition believe in?

Steve: They hate magic. And extra dimensional creatures. Pretty much anything that came through a Rift. And drugs.

Zack: Are they also wasting billions a year in a war against people smoking a harmless plant?

Steve: No, they hate Juicers. They are like extreme sports guys in football padding who inject drugs and then fight like berzerkers.


Zack: I bet he is tough as hell as long as he doesn't have to bend or change positions.

Steve: The Coalition also hate magic cities and usually is bombing them or skirmishing.

Zack: Magic cities?

Steve: Like Tolkeen.

Zack: Oh fuck off.

Steve: No, that's what it's called!

Zack: I don't believe you.

Steve: Fine, don't, but they released like ten books about a war between the Coalition and Tolkeen.

Zack:
Okay, okay. So they hate steroids and Gandalf. What do they like?

Steve: Skulls.

Zack: Besides Skulls.

Steve: Dogs.

Zack:
Dogs?

Steve: Dogs.

Zack: Dogs??

More WTF, D&D!?

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    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.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    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.
