  1. I’m with Demitasse…think I’ll stay home, safe away from the Black Friday melees. A cat could get hurt…and even might have to deploy his mystical powers in self-defense.

  2. But with his rare blue fur, Demitasse needs the death ray to stop being turned into a Hermès handwarmer.

    1. I like this use of the word “stop”, as if it were an ongoing process that must be arrested.

          1. Having thought about it, there are at least three superhero RPGs that use the same terminology: Champions; GURPS Supers; Mutants & Masterminds.

          2. Harrumph. No idea what you-all are on about.

            But that’s a great name for a cat. I assume, that is just cat red-eye, right? He doesn’t really have magic powers?

          3. I played Champions from the very first edition on. I actually thought it was a case where the “improvements” made in the rules over time were inferior to the original.

        1. Used to be, there was a pretty good street band in Berzerkley by the name of Thoth, iirc. I wonder if they’re still around. Two guys wearing not much and it was mostly percussion, I think.
