    DM: You sure you want to play a Lawful Good character? You usually play more ruthless guys.

     

    JAVERT: No, it’s cool. I want to stretch myself.

  • "Ode to a Venusian Flurn"

    With apologies to John Keats'  "Ode on a Grecian Urn"

     

    Thou still untarnish'd bride of galaxies,
