Spooky example of women's intuition by Sarah on that botch roll. Good thing Sark forgot the dice box.

I would have missed her most of all.

OH and all the "Shout at Starbucks" comments that have been made in the past is especially hilarious (since I am usually waiting for my shift at the dreaded starbucks to start while I listen as well). One day I will have the courage to shout "I came in the Frappuchinos!"

Haha I've been wrestling with this post-blood bubbling of the sub. He did get docked some XP at level-up time for his sins but I'm still trying to figure out if Brian is the greatest role-player of all-time and is nailing the nuances of:
-an inactive Good, Catholic-style (as Steve mentioned above)
-a Sling Blade-esque simpleton
-a man demonically possessed (that he never told me about)
...OR if Amarth/Brian has a rotten core and is a ticking time bomb of muscle and murder and comedy.

That was a dick move on Amarth’s part, pure and simple. He only wanted to kill the guy once he saw someone was going to make a point of saving him. That, to me, should indicate his nature. Then even when he lost the initial roll, he went ahead with it just to prove a point. Pure ass-holery. I LOVED IT. Great for the show and great for game play. I love playing with a wild card in the group, as long it’s not a kid who just doesn’t know any better and gets everyone in trouble with ass-hole moves, because it adds a danger level to the game. Sir Richard will only be a really interesting character if he’s tested to be virtuous by things like this.
Kudos on the 1st half of this episode....((I'm only 1/2 way through))

I just can't see how a semi-retarded goliath, raised from birth by terrorist vikings to be a bloodthirsty killing machine, turned out "good".
He did say he wanted to put the guy out of his misery. So maybe to Amarth's people a pitiful creature crying like a bitch needs to be dispatched to meet his God before he shames himself out of his seat at the table in the Heavenly Mead Hall where stories of epic battles are traded between fellow warriors. The initial act itself was then in fact good. Being denied that just flared his temper.
