Yes, dear readers, it was inevitable that, sooner or later, the mischief and mockery of a certain Monkey King would come to the attentions of some Crunch Overlord. That day has come, and my nemesis is none other than the Chatty DM. He is a master of Crunchy Magic, he disparages Flavor and Fluff and Setting and All That is Good and True!
Clearly, he must die.
Fortunately, he has fallen prey to the weakness of many a villain; he's revealed his hand too early, sending his minions on the attack in an earlier comment thread.
I need trickery and capers to defeat his unyielding, mechanical minions. I need ninjas, pirates, and plot twists to outwit the Chatty DM — more scenery, more marvels, more gaming elements unconstrained by Petty Rules! Victory Will Be Mine! I am enjoying this Far Too Much!!1!
Oh, and after all that disparagement of Fluff, he admits to liking Planescape. I sense a plot twist where the Crunch Overlord finally repents and Sees the Light. Either that, or I imbezulate him with my Electro-Cannons.
