Wait a second... what exactly is this book bound in? The leather feels... funny.
Make a Medicine or First Aid roll. And then a Sanity Check.

Wait a second... This isn't human tissue, it's kleenex tissue!

If someone makes a book bound in human flesh and inked in blood, I will freak.

Provided they then use it to unwittingly possess the occupants of a cabin in the woods and get sent back to medieval England.

Hm. I had been thinking about doing something involving homemade paper, but this would be good too...

If someone makes a book in human skin, I will vote and then call the police.

Tom: Yes

Susy: Do you have access to a human skin bank?

If so - awesome.

Human skin too, yes. Not bank but, erm, freshly harvested? I mean, it is an out-patient procedure... It would be a small book, though.
What we really need are plastic surgeons.

Maybe we should go to a lipo clinic, steal all the excess fat, make really thin bars of soap out of it and then make a book out of that. We could etch the words into the soap.

I want to do that now.

Actually, I'm so doing that. Don't anyone else do that, or I'll know.

Because, you know, you'll submit the proof.

Squid Flesh and Squid Ink... Should be Equally Creepy? +1

Besides going the mammalian route for blood and flesh, rongo rongo basically just did the invertebrate version of this, no?

Anyone making a book out of haste this November?

I've thought about doing it every year, but November is a really bad month for me to do anything other than work. We'll see I suppose.

Did the task in 2007...might try again in 2009, but it's kind of a big commitment.

Squid! This was originally Gertrude's idea, but she didn't want to get her tentacles dirty. Thus, rongo rongo was invited to bring her opposable thumbs along for some tasking. See pictures for details. As saille pointed out, there turns out to be a ...

I was so happy to see this task appear - I was just thinking of ways to zero-level the old form of this task, and this way I get points.... Anyway, I was thinking about a few different materials for this one. i had hoped to get my letter punches in ...

Alrighty.  They always say that the second time is the best time.  And for this second time, I went all out.  This is a book on how you should play SF0 CORRECTLY.  It covers a lot of ground, including some fun gaps in the famous non-secret rules....

Before I explain what I did for this, I think I should explain how my mind works, a little bit. I have always been a hyper-intuitive thinker. By that I mean that a hundred random thoughts drift through my head and go off on bunny trails constantly, s...

Four Story Stud Being a voracious reader and verbose, if intermittent, writer, this task seemed particularly promising. It was a lonely Saturday evening, so I headed out to the local coffee shop to break some writers block. What to write seemed anc...
