Did you figure out why I named it Norman?

I assumed Norman was a Psycho reference.

Realised the psycho connection in game, thought I had chosen a nice great move....

My friendly giant Koobolt with the 8 year old twin daughters has got an alien mask from being a Byrr (Alien) captive. Now the mask wonīt come off, and I donīt really wanna see what they have done to my face, so everyone dislikes me. I still try to keep a low friendly profile. Sometimes I help with heavy lifts and occasionally I help the Hardholder kill some sorry bastard...

Itīs a hard life being an oucast parent with revolting children. Lucky me I have my friend in the mirror, Norman. Heīs kinda scary with his reptile eyes and razor sharp teeth behind his mask- but he speaks oh so truthfully.

Of course stupid me donīt always understand the reasons behind his advice, thatīs unimportant. Like when he told me to take the anti-Byrr pirats as slaves and then told me to shoot them when the were helpless. Norman is the greatest and the wisest, lucky me for having him around. Wonder if heīs got any advice on child-rearing?

This still fits well with what I know about Norman Osborne (aka the Green Goblin).

The Faceless is a truly awesome creation.  Since none of my players took one, I created a Faceless NPC, Hush Hush, for my online game.  On a whim, I also made him mute due to a minor knife fight incident, so he was the faceless, voiceless enforcer of the Hardholder.  And then he got fired (technically, tied to a table and offered in barter) because his new mask, that he'd stolen, gave him a conscience.  

And so far everybody who's tried to examine the mask through Weird means has botched their roll and found themselves on or near a giant, mask-shaped island in shark-infested waters.  It's been rather awesome, although I also think it's built Hush Hush into this Big Mystery of the setting rather then the poor bastard that I originally intended.

Danny, that is fantastic.

I never expected to find so many people sharing my love of testosterone-poisoned masked weirdos.
