*[[Vecna]] is the primary example of awesome in [[D&D]], since he's the [[Batman]] [[wizard]] who broke the game so hard in 2nd edition, that he caused the edition change to 3rd. He avoids [[Mary Sue]]dom primarily by being awesome, and by ultimately losing, though he had a partial success since he ultimately went from demigod to lesser god.

''[[Rappan Athuk]]'' for that First Edition Feel.

Standard awesome image. If you don't know what it means, gb2/gaia/.
AIAaward.gif This article is awesome. Do not fuck it up.

An image with a long, murky history with 4chan and Something Awful. Popular with probably every board, including /tg/. In its primordial roots, it was created on a now-defunct Pokemon fansite (Pokemopolis) of all places, where it was known as the :cheesy: smiley. The creator also posted in on Something Awful, where the Goons made it into what it is now.

If someone replies to your post with this image attached, he is essentially saying something along the lines of "fuck you" or "you're a fucking retard". This person is probably correct, since the purpose of /tg/ is /to generate/ RAGE.

Often blends with METAL, which is similarly employed in irony against shit that's just too much.
