    Elizabeth, this is great stuff! You should post some of it at the Whole Hole Suppository of Knowledge

    A Tizn’t Wisenheimer with a list of Hippeponymous Laws:
    “90% of everything is crud. Literally.”
    “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong… but hopefully to someone else.”
    “There is no way to tell, aside from outright saying it, that a religion is a joke because peeps will believe anything. Even telling them might not do it.”

    Ease of Axis – a newly emerged Harien Nation has teamed up with Horcs from Agog, the Dingdom of the Dong, and (for some reason) a sect of Jeezle Freaks to launch an assault on the surface. Their first targets: The Incredibly Huge Monster(tm) and That One Place With All The Sand. You’re gonna need some allies for this… it’s turning into an Oith War too.

    A Bad Threeway – recently, a team of Polishers uncovered an ancient hoomanrace artifact that was buried under crud. They are insisting its discovery is sacred for them, and keeping it in a temple. However, the local Hoomanitarians and Jemima’s Witnesses have their own interest in the artifact, but the Polishers aren’t selling.

    Dingdom with horcs? Never happen.

    They’d be fighting on different fronts. Most likely horcs at the monster, dingdom at the sand.
    The Hariens might not even inform each side of their multiple alliances.

    Is it weird to want to make a hybrid Athas/Oith setting?

    TenAss City – a place where nothing is half-buns’d, but rather completely overdone. Marital disputes are handled like operatic ballads on the street, every wound is treated as potentially mortal, whole crowds burst into choreography and song over minor successes, and noble titles always take longer than a minute to say fully. They also never, ever, give up even in the face of extreme adversity and threat.

    Your Hooman artifact idea reminds me of an adventure idea I had that involved the twisted remains of a carnival ride and a prayer that was essentially a messed up recitation of “Here I Go Again” by White Snake. I wish I could remember how it all went, but I’ve probably got it written down somewhere.

    Beware of tawny kittens lovin’ up your shiny new crapwagon. They’ll lead you down a lonely road.

    I imagine an even semi-functional carousel or ferris wheel would start yet another new religion of its own. Something to do with circles.

    Understandable, new work situations have made it so I am around in the afternoons, but only intermittently.

    I’ll probably wander in and out occassionally.
    I really need to figure out how to use wordpress so I can post on the suppository.

    I’m not sure I’m immature enough to come up with (in)appropriate material on the fly. I need practice/tips.

    I just try to remember: when in doubt, reference the butt.

    That’s good advice.

    Have you seen the Living Low style guide? That might give you some pointers.

    I am looking through it as I type this.
    Well, before and after I type this.

    And it is reminding me that I need to stash some cash to nab Redredged when I can get it (from amazon or something), since I didn’t know about the kickstarter ’till it was over.

    I kinda wonder what comedy is like on Oith.
    I mean, given all the things they take seriously as part of their world, what would a stand-up routine be like?

    “I was little more than a goon-to-be. A clam-snatcher, I was good at lifting peep’s purses. But I got caught. Figured I’d rot in that cell.
    “But then he came. He asked if I wanted to do more with my life. I wasn’t sure, but I figured anything he could offer was better. He took my hand through the bars. Did some weird moves I didn’t get back then. Then we were suddenly far from the city. I asked him how he did that, and he told me:”
    ‘First, you put your right leg in. Then you take your right leg out. Then, you put your right leg back in, and you shake it all about. Those are the basics. I will teach you to Poke Hoci, so you can turn your life about. For child… that is what it is all about.’
