DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Huh. I'll have to check it out. My wife just gave me a book called The Blood of Heroes by Joseph Nassise for my birthday that is about an army of WWI German zombies (the Germans invent a corpse-animating gas, apparently). Looks very steampunky and fun

I want to read those comics again.

Yeah, me too.

I bought the Black Dossier that takes place in the 50s when it came out, but I never got to read it. It's boxed up somewhere, I should take a look.

Hee hee! Here's something you don't know about me: I have a very specific form of OCD involving lists. I love 'em. Reading them and making them. Lists, lists, lists. Can't get enough.

Anyway, I've got a list I've been working on for the past three or four years to read every book from which a character in LXG originates. It's a pretty ambitious list, probably impossible, but I'm not intimidated because I've already resigned myself to the fact that I will be dead before I finish my lists. I have a lot of them.

I would like to review that. That is an ambitious task to read all the books that are refered too in the LoEG.

Have you read the Wind and the Willows yet? I have not picked that up in a while.

I would be interested in seeing your list.

I have a list in my head of all the places I want to visit in my life before it ends.

Top of the list

St. Petersburg in June. White Nights feastival huge jazz nit sure if you like jazz or not.


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

The Piper at the Gates of Dawn!

[bubble bubble bubble]

Yeah, that's fun.

I do like jazz. Who do you like?


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Miles Davis is King, I got to love him when I lived in Avignon France bought and listened to Tutu and from there have gathered a collection of his stuff.

Enjoy Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, Coltrane and others can't think of what I have in my selection right now.

How about you?


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

I didn't know you had lived in France. Elaborate, please.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

When I was in high school I went and lived in Avignon France for 3 1/2 months. I think it was Spring of 1990 that I lived in Avignon. One reason why I love Sinead so much her song was burning up the air waves when I was over there. Alot of fun Avignon, pate champagion and corchions with pain excellent stuff I think I ate one like everyday. I lived with a french family a mother and two daughters a teenage boys dream. I learned alot from those girls about music and stuff and we spoke alot of english so they could get better at it.'
The mother was a pretty good cook, I loved her food we ate things like rabbit and traditional french dishes and it was fantastic. I learned alot about French Rhone wines while there as well and have loved those wines since. lavender, red wine, pate Southern France ... I lvoe it and I can't wait to return.

I also lived in London for half a year in 1996. Good times.
Did some traveling wheil I was there. Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Nice, Florence and Pisa. As well I went to Turkey and Norway while there.


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

Cool. I haven't been out of the States much.

Miles, Bird and Trane are all AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!! while Getz is pretty awesome, too, but not one of my all-time faves.

I also love: Mingus, Monk, Dave Brubeck, Mose Allison, Duke Ellington, Satchmo, for starters.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Where have you been outside of the United States?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I spent six months in Saudi Arabia. It's funny but the Offspring's album Americana always remInds me of that time


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

That with the service I imagine? You been anywhere else Patrick?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Mexico and Canada. That's about it


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

I've only been to Canada and London.

Sam Rivers used to play every year in Gainesville, Florida. Do a cheap show for the college kids. My dad took me.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Yeah if I had stayed in with my language qualifier I would have spent an awful lOng time in Iraq and Afthanistan. Fortunately I got out in 2000. I'd rather invadE Europe eventually

I don't think I've polluted this thread with any musical interludes yet.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Ah well go right ahead sir.

Europe is alot of fun. I have been to greece, Italy, Brittish Isles, Spain and Norway as well as Frankfurt (lay over on my way to greece). I want to go back.


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

So,, here's a non sequitir for you, Patrick (or Mad Badger or Spanky):

I wasn't around for 2e, but I, for some reason, associate Sigil with the Forgotten Realms. Is this true? More importantly: what are the gods? FR? Something else?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Every damn god they could think of.
FR.
Chinese.
Babylonian;
it was Great Wheel cosmology from 1e.
Norse.
Greek.
You name it, it was in there in Planescape.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Sigil was it's own realm part of what was called planescape.

So the idea was there were thousands if not millions of worlds and Sigil was the city of doors to all those worlds.

Planescape was really innovative for its time. It basically posited that there was this fantastic city at the center of the plains that had a million portals to destinations all around the Prime Material and the Elemental and Outer planes

The setting is also the first setting where philosophy and role playing really came to the fore. Demons and Devils weren't just monsters to kill, they became complex adversaries with their own agendas. Angels weren't cardboard good guys, some became right wankers. There were factions in Sigil to explore that basically adhered to the philosophies of the alignments. And in the Outer Planes belief is a powerful tool, and worship is the sustenance of the gods

I think that a lot of FR elements wiggled into the setting DA mainly because at the time that setting was so popular snd huge that parts of it got into almost everything TSR put out


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Also, every god is in the setting. You can go visit their realms. Drink mead at the boards of Valhalla. Eat apPle pie at Yondallas massive farm, bargain for spices among the pyramids of Set, anything really


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

Sweet, so I can throw in mentions of any deity I can think of? Cool.

I call upon the Good God Big Buck!

No, srly, good to know.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Oh, and if we are counting plane stops I have been to Sicily and Ireland. Ireland was fun, I got to drink a Guiness in Shannon Airport on St. Patricks Day coming back from that six-month tour in SAudi. Which, by the way, was completely dry (Seems Muslims don't like alcohol. Who knew? =P )


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Ugh. I will get to some more stuff soon. Long day

Musical pollution FTW


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I kinda imagine Alyda like this but with less of a mohawk and redder hair.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

I was in Ireland and drank nothing but Guiness the whole time I was there. Fun times.

Interesting view of Alyda: I viewed her more like Christina Hendricks

Hawt chick

That sure is one long address!


In my head, all of my hawt chick friends are based on my ex-girlfriends.

In Alyda's case--girlfriend sophomore year in high school, recipient of my virginity. If I had to pick a "celebrity" that she resembled it would be her.

Alyda's real life inspiration was blonde, but after grunge hit, she started dyeing her hair red.

And since I'm already doing music links, here's where I got the name.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

One thing y'all should remember is to roll Perception frequently. Sigil is a bustling city, there is always a lot going on


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

How was Columbus, Badger? Are you back in the great Bay State yet?


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Ah I am now lad. Was fun hung around with the Great Urizen.

Did you miss me postings on the site?


I might have--until I saw your latest blasphemy in the Rant thread.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

:) Oh come on you love me.


Maybe. But I certainly can't admit that when posting under this avatar.

All hail Leafar!


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

I have a crazy idea that I talk about in the FAWTL Refugee thread and Comrade Anklebiter's thread.

What do you think? I mean, you know, in the abstract?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

A meetup? Possibly. My travelling to NH would be tough.

Sorry about the delay in posting, this week has been Hell. I'm glad I dont have to feed myself from farming, I'm certain I would starve.

Oh, I did manage to pick up an old copy of On the Road and Slaughterhouse Five mad cheap at a random yardsale. It's been decades since I read either, I totally don't remember anything about them, but I know you had mentioned them recently.


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

Yeah, farming sucks. I'd rather load trucks.

Slaughterhouse is the shiznit!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Vonnegut was a sarcastic old bastid


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

I just read John Irvings new book pretty good a littl more more political than normal but still very good.


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

Huh. I think every John Irving novel I've ever read has been pretty political. Anyway, what's the new one called?


Male Goblin Paladin 7/Teamster Steward 2/Inquisitor 1

Pretty cool New England "history" political novel.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

In One Person, I would say Setting Free the Bears, Water Method Man and 158 pound Marriage were not very political.

Nor was Prayer of Owen Meaning, Widow for One Year, Son of a Circus, Fourth Hand or Until I find you I have not finished Last Night in Twisted River but so far that does not have real political overtones either. Some of his other books did though I will agree.

So Oh great DM ... have you gotten out from under your commitments?

Very interesting character Mr Curley was. I don't see Mr. Irvings writings as political as that yet they do have a political bend to them. An interesting fact about Mr. Irving is he was one of my wrestling coaches at my primary school, his son attended there as well and was on the wrestling team.


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

What else is up friend?


male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

hey guys no one wanting to talk here anymore?
