Deviant Science Project

Deviant Science Project (50 XP)


You are creating something, working on something.
Something grand and wondrous, probably. Why, you ask? Well, FOR SCIENCE, of course! Your friends and family are probably a bit skeptical. "Do you really think that making a clone of Hitler is a good idea?", they may say. But what do they know! They don't understand you at all! You are struck by inspiration and genius and you will finish your amazing project!
Even if it ends badly.
Even if it is very likely to end badly from the beginning.

  • You attempt to create something, but realize you underestimated the amount of work and time needed;
