I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Is casting the spell Blood Transcription an evil act?
Casting these spells is a supernaturally evil act. You can argue that in a certain case you need to in order to achieve a good end, but that doesn't change the act - the phrase "necessary evil" exists for this. And it's why one act doesn't change your alignment. It is evil but under duress for a good reason might be forgiven.

And now I will delete all the OT answers! (Well... OK, I'll have mercy on ones with upvotes.) Perhaps if someone asked "good system for a one-shot humor game" they could be migrated.

You haven't been getting very good answers to this question. You might consider asking it on history.SE instead.
