If you’re reading this, then the world has in fact not ended and I’m feeling the need to celebrate this achievement. We have completed the 13th B’ak’tun, and have embarked on the 14th! This momentous occasion has been thousands of years in the making, and we get to live to see it.
I don’t know about you, but I intend to party like it’s 220.127.116.11.0!
Unless of course solar flares cleanse the Earth with fire. My siblings just received an order of Omaha Steaks, so I’m not ruling that possibility out just yet.*
The real question is: how are you going to commemorate this in your game? Will your players be rolling DEXTERITY + ATHLETICS to dodge meteors? Will they be doing some WITS + CRAFTS to come up with some Super Suit of Fiery Death Avoidance? Will they be focusing on some RESOLVE + COMPOSURE rolls in their attempts to ascend to the 4th dimension? (and if they are remember to ask if their characters are wearing all natural fibers because, as I’m sure we all know, synthetic materials will vanish during the transition and nobody wants to see that.)
Of course, if the world is going to end and all life as we know it is about to.. well… not be here at any rate, I don’t want to invest too much of my remaining hours writing a blog entry no one will ever get to read because that’s just sad. So remember to keep your towel handy, and face the day with aplomb. Enjoy your Apocalypse everyone!
*The two times my siblings ordered steaks our area was hit with power outages lasting weeks… both times… and as such they had been informed that they were never to order steaks again. So if there is cleansing fire we all know who to blame, and it isn’t the makers of yummy delicious steaks!
