Photos Found While Rationalising: A Man in a Very Splendid T-Shirt  

Meet the F&H ref of Extreme Flange and his very fine hand-painted T-Shirt depicting Eowyn killing the Nazgul. I've not actually met said Ref in many years, though we are Facebook friends, but I don't think he's actually on Facebook that much. "Flange" was an early 90s F&H term for "making it up as you go along" and this particular ref was a master of the art. I seem to recall he once got an official reprimand for too much flanging. I very fondly recall an adventure that he had to make up on the spot which started with a peasant accosting the party and requesting they enter the forest to seek some "hideously deformed..." (it was at this point a look of mild panic crossed the face of the person playing the peasant and they ended up with the bathetic) "... things". I don't recall much about the ensuing adventure though I do remember that it was hugely enjoyable and involved a lot of instances where random peasants would shout "look! look! a hideously deformed thing!"

I was on that adventure and I too remember little about it save that it was incredibly enjoyable and involved much shouting of 'A hideously deformed thing!' Sometimes flange really was good.

Like improvisation, it's amazing when it works, but probably not something to be tried if you don't know what you're doing *g*
