    Sticky: Re: American Politics: A Brand New Day

    The Franklin painting is apparently part of the "science" symbolism for Biden. I think I read he has something else in the office too that was meant to reflect something similar.

    Hey I don't have a dog in this fight but Robby specifically said no one's calling you a Trump supporter. His broader point was that you can occasionally echo his talking points by engaging in...

    The ceremony starts at 11 am Eastern but it's hard to say when the actual swearing-in and speech will be. Should wrap up by 12:30 or so, judging by the scheduled livestream.

    Biden's genuinely done a pretty good job of picking a diverse cabinet- it's nearly 50% women and has representation from most minorities, including a Native American woman running the Department of...

    Melania's definitely been waiting until he's out of office to divorce him. She enjoys the trappings of power and deserves no sympathy, but I think her own breed of shittiness is somewhat different...

    He lost a lot of favor when news about his secret kid came out, and he'd have run for Senate or something if he actually wanted to stay in politics. I think Arnold's happier just sniping at the GOP...

    Don't forget, a drawing and note from little Horikoshi made it in to one of the early One Piece volumes. It's entirely understandable that he would have a stronger attachment to early characters.

    For the cursed chainmail, I think I'd remove the phrasing that a 19 or 20 results in a crit and instead just say the Confusion-like effect activates on a 19 or 20 roll. As for the effect itself, I...

    A couple of quick language notes: the term "free action" doesn't actually appear in the PHB, so you might want to change that first weapon to activate when the character makes an attack roll. You...
