    I didn't mention you had to do anything with the gravy any more then I specificed what you had to do with the sprinkles.

    You can put it on the steak, you can eat it like soup, you can put it on the dessert and put sprinkles on the steak, you can throw it at your enemies ... I am not dictating this - it is in theory your gravy you can do whatever you like with it.

    My basic point was that gravy is nice and so having some is a positive regardless of what you use it for.

    I have had gravy on a steak (with mashed spuds) - I personally like it, but you don't have too you can do what you like with your gravy (including swapping it out for raw, fresh horseradish if such is your preference).

    I've seen some people asking how RC is going to explain why he has Detect Evil prepared right now, but he hasn't admitted that, just that he's used it that way at least a couple times in the past.

    As long as RC doesn't start until the next day, his ruse is still good.

    ...Except for the fact that it clearly isn't and Xykon is just playing along with his excuse so RC can keep telling himself he's smart for manipulating Xykon.

    And to be fair, there is a hamburger patty / ground beef dish sometimes called Salisbury steak that is most usually served with gravy ... but that's not really steak.

    That's an easy lie that goes with what RC said earlier.

    He needs to be ready incase Xykon goes off on his own for whatever reason and RC needs to track him down. I somehow doubt Xykon tells RC everything he does and I wouldn't be surprised if Xykon pursued activities on a whim. So RC can just say he is preparing to roll with whatever Xykon may do.
    My top question a DM should ask:
    "Why?"

    Not likely, the arcane part of the ritual doesn't do anything per se, it just alter the gate to make posible to be moved in the future, but doesn't move it, the divine part give control to TDO to move that "altered gate" wherever he wants.

    I suspect they posted that from a phone because if I look at the thread on my phone, while the image is still big, it's sized to fit within the phone screen, unlike when I view it on my laptop and it's larger than life. lol

    That's a violation of all that is beef. Ribeye steak is grilled. (and if the weather is bad, it can be broiled or cooked at high heat in an iron skillet). {remainder of this rant has been excised}

    Last time I bought a steak, I sliced it into thin strips and stir-fried it with noodles. Where does that fall in this conversation?

    As long as you put shrimp or crawfish in it, you're good. If you put tofu in it, you are beyond Evil!

    I found a great cast-iron recipe that we use pretty much any time we have a good steak to cook. It's never failed me yet - super high heat, baste it with butter and herbs for the second half of cook time, serve immediately.

    I've yet to meet an invertebrate that I agreed with having on my plate, so no, but I also didn't use tofu.

    It was a pretty simple affair, really. I velveted the beef with a light marinade, stir-fried it with some red bell pepper in home-made scallion oil, added light and dark soy sauce with some chili flakes and a pinch of sugar to form the sauce, then tossed in the noodles at the end.

    Well, Xykon should keep away from Central Europe, then. Our most popular foods are just a ton of gravy with few bits of (anything, really). And the default state of meat is a schnitzel. And a schnitzel without a breading (I hope this is the correct word) is steak.

    And the best sushi is avocado sushi.

    Tofu is not made from people, you have confused it with _soy_lent green.
