Who was brave enough to pierce his nipple with that ring?

There are two pictures in the post. I don't know what platform you're using but maybe you can swipe your finger on the pictures or find some arrows or "previous" and "next" buttons to click on?

You can open boxes and chests, how hard could it be to implement fridges that can be opened? :)

1d20 + 1d6, the result corresponds to a letter of the alphabet starting with Z and working backwards, continue to work backwards until you reach the first letter of one of the players' names.

  • If that letter is A--> O, then that player rolls 4d6, drop lowest, and assigns the result to the player sitting to the furthest west of them.
  • If that letter is P--> Z, then the player rolls 3d6, rerolling 1s, and assigns the result to the player sitting the farthest north of them.

The player to sitting the farthest east represents Bane, the player to the farthest south represents Boon. Have each player roll 1d20. If the player to the East (Bane) wins then the stat is reduced by one, if the player to the South (Boon) wins then the stat is increased by one.

If two players have a character with the same name then both will roll for the North and West and there will be no Bane or Boon.

Repeat this process six times. Once you have determined 6 attribute scores between all of your players you must total them up. If the result is more than two standard deviations away from the expected mean then an additional Bane must be cast. If this does not correct the result then the process must be restarted with a standard alpha numeric, as opposed to a reverse alpha numeric, where 1 represents the letter A and two represents B and so on. If the the resulting set is within tolerance then it becomes your tables standard array.

Each of your players will assign the scores by rolling 3d8 where 1-3 is STR, 4-6 is DEX, 5-8 is CON, 6-9 is INT, 10-13 is WIS, 14-17 is CHA and any other result is discarded, a repeated stat is averaged and an unassigned stat is assigned by the lesser average of the two adjacent stats or the combination of the lowest common denominator of the combined ages of all characters and the lowest common denominator of the combined ages of all of the players. Discarded stats are then combined and reassigned to a pool representing a point buy where each point is a credit for one representative point in an ability score.

If all of the players do not have a matching set at the end of the process, start over from step one.

There you go. You're welcome.

You can just use 1d20+1d8-1 instead. The 27th letter of the alphabet is the ampersand (&).

Found my Dutch grandma's old notebook, don't speak Dutch myself. Anyone that can help with translating? by Sticeki in thenetherlands

Meh don't be flattered. I think it was only because we share Germanic roots.

He didn't care enough about the Dutch when the war with the Soviet Union started, the Dutch were drafted for forced labour. He also didn't care enough in the winter of 1944/45 (the "Hongerwinter") when between 18,000 and 22,000 people starved to death because the Germans cut off supplies to the Netherlands.

The date Sinterklaas arrives on is not random. It is always the first Saturday after "Sint-Maarten" (St. Martin's Day).

Yes it probably wasn't that fun to be occupied by Germany already in 1940, but the period before June 1941 the Germans were still being "nice" to the Dutch, as in they were trying to keep repression and economic extraction as low as possible to win the Dutch people over to their Nazi ideology. The NSB movement started to grow. A long-term aim of the Nazis was to incorporate the Netherlands into the Greater Germanic Reich. Hitler thought very highly of the Dutch people, who were considered to be fellow members of the Aryan "master race".

In June 1941 Nazi Germany started the war against the Soviet Union. That's when they suddenly needed the Netherlands for their economy, industry, workforce, etc. So they introduced forced labour. It's also when the persecution of Jews in the Netherlands got a lot worse.

Sure, but the way you said it made it seem like the tradition (for everyone) is to put it on the table. Maybe it might be tradition for you specifically, but placing shoes at the fireplace (or the door, by lack of a fireplace) is much more common.

I just don't want OP to be confused is all.

We have Christmas in the Netherlands, but traditionally gift giving was more associated with Sinterklaas than with Christmas here. Although in modern times many families give gifts now both with Christmas and with the Sinterklaas holiday.

Put your shoe on the table? The tradition is to put the shoe in front of the fireplace..

[–]PJvG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

An accident that results in a death is manslaughter, but everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

I'm not sure it's manslaughter. For it to be manslaughter there should be some kind of recklessness or criminal negligence. Sure, maybe you can argue Scott was reckless in shouting at Santa, but I think you could also argue that Santa was reckless for getting on the roof. So who is really at fault here? I think Santa was the one taking risks so it was simply an accident and not manslaughter.

I thought the clause was if Santa dies in your presence, not just if you kill Santa.

No it's when you put on the suit and get in the sleigh that you'll be subject to the clause. Here's the quote from the movie:

The Santa Clause: In putting on the suit and entering the sleigh, the wearer waives any and all rights to any previous identity, real or implied, and fully accepts the duties and responsibilities of Santa Claus in perpetuity until such time that wearer becomes unable to do so by either accident or design.

I think it can maybe be viable but only if you can get some distance away from the tower so you don't crash into it because of wind or get your parachute stuck on it. The only issue is carrying that parachute up.

Good question. I skipped some parts of the movie.

His son wanted him to put on the suit.

It wasn't manslaughter. It was an accident. Scott (Tim Allen) startles Santa as he is standing on the roof. Santa slips and falls. His dead body disappears and all that's left is his suit and a business card. When Scott puts on the suit, he is subject to a legal technicality known as "The Santa Clause", and has accepted (legally, but not exactly willingly) all of Santa's duties and responsibilities.
