    [Spoiler Thread] Godzilla: King of the Monsters - I've seen it.

    I just rewatched it last night, and noticed she actually tries an excuse to get her friend to get out of the installation. When he tells her he's staying, she gets a momentary sad look. So she knew EVERYONE else was getting murdered, but she tried to save that one co-worker she liked. Still...

    What're the best kaiju movies, human-parts-only?

    I'd absolutely say so.

    Waterdeep Dragon Heist and Undermountain Geography Puzzle.

    Both are pretty clear that there's a 300 ft tunnel from the basement of a Skullport bar to Xanathar's lair. Now, the depth of the lair is kept vague, listed as "hundreds of feet," but I feel pretty confident in the 300 ft tunnel.

    [Spoiler Thread] Godzilla: King of the Monsters - I've seen it.

    So this popped up on Reddit, and nobody quite knows the artist. All I'm saying is that second from the left should be Maddie. Better show.

    What're the best kaiju movies, human-parts-only?

    The Japanese cut of King Kong Versus Godzilla is some of Japan's most capable comedians (one nicknamed "Japan's Charlie Chaplain") being hilarious. The American distributor's maintained that monsters were serious business and cut almost all the comedy. I've really laughed at some of the Looney...

    [Spoiler Thread] Godzilla: King of the Monsters - I've seen it.

    I suspect Kong would do stuff just to piss Godzilla off, though.

    What're the best kaiju movies, human-parts-only?

    Invasion of the Astro-Monster has dashing astronaut/cook Nick Adams and his two-fisted adventure of tragic alien romance. For a kid, Destroy All Monsters. 90% of human scenes are spy shootouts or spaceships.

    [Let’s Read] Volo’s Guide to Monsters

    Kobold inventors are the straw that broke the camel's back for my players. The group's opinion of kobolds went from "These guys are dangerous" to a permanent "FUCK THESE GUYS."

    [Spoiler Thread] Godzilla: King of the Monsters - I've seen it.

    The best close-up we get of his hands is when he holds the bridge cabling to help the humans escape after interposing himself between the missiles and the civilians. He lets go in that clip at 3:05 seconds, and it looks very much to me that his thumb is part of the grip.

    Why Us?

    I started my campaign by passing a cup filled with slips of paper around the table, with everybody drawing two. They included things like "The person to the left had a shit job with you. What was it?" and "You confessed a secret while drunk one night to the person on your right. What was it?"...

    My wife's warlock finds her familiar very useful by having it use the help action on Eldritch Blast targets, then pushing the target away from the familiar.

    Asmodeus and soul-trading [Dragon Heist spoilers]

    I don't think it's legal within the cosmology of the Forgotten Realms. I think the gods would treat it as more like a trick Asmodeus played on the parents. That's why my players ventured to Sigil with a copy of the Cassalanter's contract, found a kidnapped Modron giving free legal advice behind...

    [Let’s Read] Volo’s Guide to Monsters

    There's a great free adventure from Wizards called The Barber of Silverymoon, made to highlight Volo's Guide creatures, with the Annis Hag as the big bad. It was whimsically gory and wonderful. Best map ever, since they got Jason Bradley Thompson to do it. Spoilered for size.
