Item Seed: Doit.

Doit – Google Docs

Doit

Description: a one-handed hatchet of exotic metals and woods, exceptionally sharp and corrosion-resistant. The artifact takes its name from the “DOIT” inscribed on its head; esoteric examination of the item reveals that this is Doit’s True Name.  Doit is throwable, and smells not unpleasantly of sun-baked steel and leather. Doit does normal damage for an axe of its type, with one exception: he doesn’t fumble or glance.

Technically, Doit is a weapon possessed by a death-spirit with telepathic abilities and an uncritical willingness to solve problems by splitting their skulls with an axe. This has to be conceded.  It also has to be conceded that those who wield Doit must soon grow accustomed to his (Doit is definitely a ‘he’) polite, but inexorable commentary on the joys of chopping away one’s troubles. The axe never completely shuts about it, honestly.

Finally went ahead and fired up The Black Watchmen.

What is it? Well, as the game itself says: “In the first ever Permanent Alternate Reality Game, you join the ranks of The Black Watchmen, a paramilitary group dedicated to protecting the public from dangerous phenomena beyond human understanding: ritualistic murder, occult secret societies, and the paranormal, to name but a few.” This is the sort of thing that I’m either going to rapidly fall in love with, or end up hating with an equal passion. Either way, I need to clear my mind out of the mental ruts I’m finding myself starting to form. Shake up the old neurons, you know what I mean? Puzzle-solving should help with that a bit, I’m sure.

‘Sensational No Tomato Sauce Spaghetti.’ (Modified)

Yeah, it’s been that kind of day.  I used this recipe (“Sensational No Tomato Sauce Spaghetti“), only swapping out Romano cheese for Parmesan and using celery seeds instead of garlic.  Can’t feed my wife garlic anymore, you see.  And yes, she’s unhappy about that, too.

Oh, and I mixed in the bacon with the sauce instead of sprinkling it on top afterwards.  I have no idea what difference that will make. Guess we’ll see!

Item Seed: Nixiade.

Nixiade – Google Docs

Nixiade

Yes, unfortunately, it’s made from nixies.  Living nixies, too — and, rest assured, the nixies did not volunteer to be converted into a tasty, calorie-free, carbonated ‘health’ drink that promises ‘all of the sweetness, none of the guilt!’ Blind taste testing suggests that the second half of that slogan is inaccurate; consumers who were then told that their zero-calorie taste sensation was actually the homogenized corpse of a sapient being who had had been fed into the hopper while still alive and screaming universally tended to feel rather guilty indeed for enjoying Nixiade. It was remarkable, really, how universal the revulsion was. Humanity: every now and then, they pleasantly surprise you.

Tweet of the Day, That Deputy Sure Found Some Trouble Bruin edition.

I’d say I’m sorry for that, except that I try not to lie to people.
