One of my favorite posts (as well as one that still gets the most hits) is the one in which I name the Kitchen Sink Coalition. This union was united by a single platform of “More Lasers!” (although I’m sure “Bear Cavalry” was in their manifesto as well).
I was going back and forth with a friend this weekend after our Palladium Week, and he asked me who I thought were the original signatories to the Kitchen Sink Coalition. My short inaugural list included the following:
I could see White Plume Mountain (legacy member) and Lords of Creation being on there as well. I was attempting to think of some sort of litmus test for possible participants. Possible questions included:
-Would a dragon who had his eyes replaced with jewels that shot laser beams be out of place in the setting?
-Could any element of the game be reasonably expected to appear as part of a heavy metal album cover?
-Is there at least the possibility of Beast Men with machine guns?
-Does the weapons & equipment section have at least 3 examples of archaic weapons fused with advanced technology?
What do you think? Anyone you would add to this august body? Any conditionals or qualifiers for potential members? I also believe they need a coat of arms, if anyone wants to take a crack at it.
