Yeah. I'm here, I'm awake, I'm ready to work. I think that's about as good as it gets most mornings.

comment How can I check whether an extremely adult/mature plot idea would be accepted by players without revealing any details of the idea itself?
@SteveJessop, a line is just that. It is a topic that is uncomfortable for a player. A line means "don't make me do it, don't allude to it, and don't use it as a plot device". If a player is comfortable with it as a plot-device but happens off-camera, then it is a veil. Regarding Chicago, we were playing canon Chicago and the DM knew I wasn't feeling the whole "Bug City" thing, and decided to push the issue. I objected.
