Ugh. The books were good. Not amazing, but good.

But the movie...

*internal screaming*

*hollow-eyed stare*

What movie?

It is usually a good idea to avoid the movie if you have already read the book.

OK, so I'm housesitting this week and away from my home PC, so don't have my tools to update a couple of pbps. I was on a courier run right past the apartment, so I stopped in to update pbps.

Windows 10 is installing updates. Please do not turn off your PC.

Mkay, I'll grab a bite to drink while I wait.

*reboot*
Windows 10 is configuring updates. Please do not turn off your PC. Your PC may restart several times.

This may take a while.

Waaaal, sheeeeeeeit. I decide to do the hour-long drive and stop back. It's 4% complete when I leave. It's 59% complete when I return. And it stays there.

I look it up under update problems. "You should wait. Ours was stuck at 75% for over two hours, then took off."

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻)

So I left it and didn't get pbps updated. I'll text my roommate tonight and have her check. If it's still stuck, she'll have to turn it off and there's a many step fix process I will need to do.

DEATH TO WINDOWS 10!
My roommate had to shut off the power. I've no idea what state that machine is in.

One weird thing that seems to work when my Win 10 hangs. Hit control-alt-delete then cancel instead of going into task manager. When it drops me back into whatever I was doing it completely forgets that it was hung and finishes what it was supposed to be doing.

What AV / Firewall programs do you use, Drejk and Aranna?

My computer currently just runs the basic Windows stuff. I have used both McAfee and Norton but the only actual virus I ever got was while running McAfee... so color me NOT impressed. Norton was good but I didn't want to pay for the newer version when just being careful online works 100 times better than any anti virus. I have been hit with malware many times over the years both when running AV and not running it. Mostly malware targets the REAL weak link in your systems defenses, you. Too many times I have clicked the wrong thing and been infected with malware. But my malware/virus removal system works flawlessly on ALL infections... it just takes half a day to get everything back up and going.

Sort?

What is this 'sort' you speak of?

If it fits in the washer, you're good.
Right?

No... If you wash a red top or other colored garment with your whites you will end up with pink whites (or whatever color they were washed with).

I ate at Costco. A massive 1/4 lb or more of all beef hot dog with deli mustard and freshly chopped onions with a 20oz Pepsi all for $1.50 no better deal anywhere.

Her fate is undecided. BUT since the fans want more of her it is likely she survived.

You are a lot nicer than I am. I am usually cursing and wondering why the <blank> am I up at this ungodly hour. Then my wallet tells me to shut up and work.
Happiness can be achieved in any situation. I needed to be reminded of this earlier, as I lost my equilibrium. But, I am calm and centered once again. And 4 am isn't so bad. It has a certain quiet dignity that the daytime lacks.

Maybe not ANY situation. Back when I was between good jobs I took a job as a corporate cleaning crew... there was a lab on site... I am not sure WHAT they were researching but it was in bio hazard bags and smelled worse than anything I had ever smelled before. Puke was like flowers in comparison. And yes I had to clean that restroom after puking my first day on the job. The worst part was my boss told me to just toss those bio hazard bags into the dumpster, shouldn't there be a hazmat team disposing of that stuff?! Not some new hire being told to just toss it in the garbage with only rubber gloves between her and certain death.

Yeah I didn't stay at that job long. No happiness there.

Fixed that for you.

Married Christian women damn well BETTER be naughty when nekkid, otherwise we good Christian men sure as the sun shines wouldn't put a ring on that.

It's not being naughty if you're married

Total curiosity, since we have some Midwesterners and New Yorkers out there: Is warming up the car still "a thing"?

I know that in winter when it's 5 degrees outside you don't dare move the car until the engine has heated enough to let the defroster work its magic.

But on a sunny 60 degree morning in the late summer?

(Yes, we've won the "parking war" and reclaimed our spot, but I still have to listen to cars idling for 5-10 minutes before moving, because apparently wasting gas and filling my neighborhood with fumes is still "a thing".)

You don't really need to warm up a modern car. But some people do just so they don't have to scrape the windows and have warm seats.

Don't you play games with the worst jaywalking offenders?
I charge straight at them and blare the horn. Most people have enough self preservation instinct to scurry out of the way. And if they don't then I hope they have to change their underpants when I lock the brakes up and skid to a stop well short of them. Of course this would only work with people like in your second example. The first example I would just yell at the morons as I went past... or fume quietly like you did.

I kind of like win 10... sure I have to constantly train it to play nice with the other programs and it needed a bit of customization, but now I have it purring like a fine tuned Win 7 and I am happy.

But if I had to choose between 7 and 8 I would (and did) choose 7.


I've used Lesser Rest and Rez myself.
Inviso instead of the word invisiblity.
Poly instead of Polymorph.

There are probably others. It's just human nature to shorten long words, especially if everyone at the table will understand.

I worked in a laundry too, but it was an industrial laundry, so all we did was throw different-coloured bags of flea-ridden/suspiciously stained workwear into big skips, after which everything (including us) got thoroughly steamed.

I iron, but do not fold.

I NEVER FOLD.

I NEVER FOLD!

VICTORY OR DEATH!!!

So... your saying we should team up. I do all your hated folding while you do all my hated ironing?

I've played with a couple grognards, but have none in my group. They are very strange people... in a good way. Heck it was a grognard that first showed me what a role playing game was. So Yay to grognards!

I heard Xbox restricts mods too... just not as severely as PlayStation. If I heard correctly they ban anything that is an IP for someone. Which does ban quite a bit of themed mods.


I keep a prim and proper folding technique handed down for generations. Nothing is worse than a wrinkled and rumpled appearance and proper folding often means no ironing... Did I mention I don't like ironing.

Went to my second work orgy last night!

It was not as fun as the first.

Do you work in the porn industry?


While all of this is fine in the end you still have to appeal to viewers. Obviously Overlord did... just not to me. I can't help but feel bored by his endless rationalization of why he does things the way he does. Lets face it if you went on a date with someone who spent most of the time rationalizing everything there wouldn't be a second date. Yes Alzrius you find it interesting and you probably aren't alone. I still think the reason it has mass appeal is the OP nature of it. There are a LOT of people who want to see someone crush all opposition mercilessly. Just look at Rambo. And yes don't take my geek cred but I wasn't a fan of that either.

Duriel was easy once you got his charge pattern down. But the Travincal Council post patch healed each other too quickly to solo unless you had enormous DPS or some trick to prevent healing.

The trick with the Necro was to focus on maxing out Skeletons then getting a TON of skill adds for it so you could run at about double max skill level then they have insane damage resistance.

As for DII, for me it was (in order of favor):

- necromancer
- amazon, paladin, and/or sorceress
- druid
- assassin and/or barbarian

I tried really hard to love the assassin. I really, really did. I thought it would be a favorite class, and it seemed like it should have been. It... it wasn't.

In my play-throughs, sorceress and paladin were, by far, the most powerful. Necromancer was awesome, and it always seemed like it should have been the best, but it never quite lived up to its own potential - I mean, I won, yeah, but still.

Amazon, druid, and barbarian were pretty easy, but I didn't really take to the last - probably aesthetic reasons more than anything else.

Oh the necromancer is scary powerful. By far the most dangerous of all the classes. My ex boyfriend filled his inventory with skeleton mastery tokens and then let his pretty much immune to everything skeleton hoard kill everything on the board. He beat Baal on the highest difficulty while making lunch... though Baal did kill a couple skeletons before he died. He dominated PvP since no one could defeat his hoard. But even he never beat the game with an assassin or a sorceress. I did it with a sorceress... but it was really hard since half the monsters on any level were immune to any damage you relied on. I had to run past the immune ones to get objectives before dying... crazy hard.

And don't get me started on how broken his druid was. He could dual wield those same weapons all the OP paladins were wielding and do more than 5 times the DPS with them through some kind of shape changing trick. And how did he defeat the game with the weakest class in the game (the Bowazon)? He found a top level bow that could unerringly shoot enemies that weren't even on the screen yet.

Roleplay is not necessarily a good thing.

Roleplay is a form of narrative.

Not all narrative is good or interesting. If you go to the movies to watch Blade Runner, you'd be disappointed if 9/10 of the time was dedicated to shopping.

It's important that players and GM agree on what kind of narrative they want to develop.

True but unless the GM is just being difficult then all this roleplaying at the market is something the players are doing for their own enjoyment.

Well, I've seen lots of bad GMs out there. But my suspicion is that it's a single player doing this (he bought us 60 pounds of different kinds of cheese that's it") and that the GM is simply playing along and greasing the squeaky wheel. Even if it's all-the-players-except-the-poster, it's still uncool to subject someone to four sessions of unenjoyable play.

If it's the GM coddling "that guy" then yes someone should say something to get the game moving again. BUT I disagree if it's all the players except the poster who are having fun. Then it becomes more an issue of differing play styles. If the whole group but one guy loves doing X (RPing w/ villagers, murdering villagers, building orphanages, exploring the deep wilderness, ect.) then THAT is what the group should be doing. If you sit at a table of hard core murder hobos (term used lovingly) and want to do nothing but talk in deep narrative style to everyone for days and days endlessly... then you are the problem just as much as if you tried to run around murder hobo style in a group that spent all their time in deep character conversations. And if you are the oddball in a play style difference than either learn to have fun their way or find a new group that plays your way. Don't continue and cause problems.

And any fun narrative is a good narrative in my book. Heck if they made a movie about a shopping trip that was full of fun and interesting dialog and drama/comedy/ect. then I would probably buy a ticket or maybe even the movie itself if it was fun to rewatch.

To be fair I haven't seen more than a handful of random episodes of Bob's Burgers. But what I did see... was pointless and didn't move me.


Sounds like you should walk... or better yet buy a bicycle so it would only take 20 minutes.

Edit: Or just use that flaming bike instead of throwing it. Think of the flashy style!

I don't like Bob's Burgers... I don't hate it. The episodes are just a waste of time in my opinion. I reserve my hate for shows truly deserving of it like Death Note. A show should accomplish something like making you feel an emotion or being a thoughtful reflection of something else. Bob's Burgers fails on all counts.

Is this because of the party role playing with the townsfolk? If so then it is a good thing (well good if you enjoy role playing). If it is because the GM is being difficult about finding basic supplies then you may indeed need to have a chat with him about easing up on you guys.

I fondly remember spending 3 12 hour sessions just role playing our efforts to enjoy a circus while equipping for our next mission. Everyone but the poor GM was having a blast.


Are these girls PCs or NPCs? If PCs then the dresses HAVE to fit into their starting gold budget. If NPCs then they can do anything the GM wants without needing any construction rules... just remember if the players are going to be attacking these girls then you should balance the dresses to the power level of the PCs so it won't unbalance the game when they get them as treasure.

I remember a rules thread that was getting pretty heated and I posted a very civil comment that said "Alright this argument isn't going anywhere, let's agree to disagree and step away from the keyboard". That was the entire post. I did not quote other posts. It was deleted. When I tried to ask why the thread was locked.

I noticed they delete ALL responses to an argument even ones that don't quote it and merely tangentially comment on the argument like asking to agree to disagree.

As usual, the best version of a story tends to be the novel - and Overlord isn't an exception to that. XD It has the most detail of all of the formats - and it's officially licensed, no less, so you can get it online, from your local bookstore, or from the library. It's definitely worth doing if you like the series.

There was a novel?

Actually I got kind of bored with Overlord. I can totally see how others would love it being a power trip fantasy. But I found it to be ... dry? Is that the right word? It lacked the conflict that would keep me on the edge of my seat. You knew going into every situation he was going to stomp it flat somehow.


People shouldn't feel bad if they aren't on a list. There are a lot of people on the boards and the only ones likely to remember us are the ones we post frequently with. It doesn't mean people don't like you it just means people don't know you.

For the record, I loved D2 back in the day. Now it's just kind of... okay. It's still brilliant, but it's not as fun. These are, I think, important distinctions.

This was one of my former boyfriend's favorite games. He had a giant list of mule characters, traded frequently with others, and had an item duplication hack. It was quite fun playing with him since he would equip me with the best gear for my level before we started. He was one of the few people to master the Bowazon character, but I think his favorite was his Necromancer who he could win ANY fight with. I just played a Sorceress or three. My best character was my Ice Sorceress who could literally slay anything on the board that wasn't immune to Ice. If it had Ice immune I had to take sidekick role and rely on my much weaker fire or lightning. If it was magic immune I had to hide behind my boyfriend's hoard of undead.

It's not the action that imperils me; it's the joy I took in hearing the the fruits of my labors rewarded. :-P

I'm afraid that little bit of joy you felt is deeply wired into the lizard-brain meat of humanity. You are very likely stuck with it until you transcend this mortal existence to a higher consciousness.

Perhaps you might console yourself that you have taken a subtle non-judgemental approach that may actually teach someone a good lesson about being considerate toward others? Parking farther away will actually increase their exercise walking to and from their home, which will be good for the health.

Also, I have max ranks in Rationalization.

Yes it is only natural to feel good when someone who has been bad to you gets what they deserve. No need to even rationalize.

In my city this thing happened and while I didn't know the woman losing her parking space or the person taking it. She resolved it by have the poor persons vehicle towed away by the city. Something I didn't even know was legal... But since the city towed it then it must be. No one took that spot again. Who wants their car impounded? But if you want to keep them as friends then it might be best to talk to them first.

It occurs to me that the "in most cases" applies to specific positioning on the battlefield NOT to needing an ally as D@rK-SePHiRoTH- contends.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

At least in this thread the only person arguing that you can count as your own ally in teamwork feats is D@rK-SePHiRoTH-. And he is clearly biased by the desire to use this trick. While there aren't a lot of people here the consensus is obvious that it doesn't work by RAW.
