Kinda makes me wonder what Kadala is doing with all those blood shards? Will the next Diablo game have our heroes facing off with Kadala and her army of blood golems?

Hate isn't owned by any one person or group... it's owned by everyone.
I once had to politely sit and listen to a transsexual rant on about the evil and horrible plague on society that are the transvestites. Just like the worst small town fire and brimstone preacher. It got me thinking; people will always find an excuse to hate.


"Learn what is written here; use this gaze in everyday life and do not vary it whatever happens."

-A book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Mushashi.


I have also started watching Legend of Korra. Fun show. All early 1900's radio drama style. It does tend to wrap up subplots in one 24 minute episode each... which they didn't have to do, and would have been far more dramatic if they had left them to run their course more naturally. But they were pressed for time so I guess they had to shorten where they could.


Well Gate was disappointing this week... Ugh... could the writer have a more obvious bias against the US and the superiority of Japanese forces? The entire episode was a joke, like some weird 6 year olds personal fantasy showdown. I like the show but seriously maybe it's best if they stick to stuff on the other side of the Gate.

The biggest reason to have ships sailing around the world is to move cargo. So if you restrict the size or weight of the stuff you can move through teleportation, like the 50lb limit on greater teleport in 3.5 then the most efficient way to move goods will still be boats.


It was a Burger King gimmick, the infernal concept will never see the light of day.

That makes logical sense, but the overall time that people spend on the game varies wildly. In general, what I see is that some people devote a lot of time to the hobby -- when they're not playing, they read rulebooks, and they make up a bunch of characters that they may never play, and maybe they draw sketches and work up backgrounds, etc. The proportions might differ slightly, but in general, the total amount of time they devote to the hobby is large, and they therefore develop both skills a lot.

Other people are far more casual -- the ones who are in it just to hang out or whatever. They devote comparatively little time to developing either skill, and therefore tend to be lackluster at both.

Say a group of 4 players spends 8 hours/week playing together (assume half and half "role" and "roll"). But Player A also spends another 4 hours at home on rulebooks and another 12 on characters. Maybe Player B has no life; he spends 12 hours on rulebooks and 8 on characters. And maybe Players C and D spend 0 hours outside of the game.

Player A might have developed his "role-playing" more than anyone (16 hrs/wk), but his rules-savvy is also quite good (8 hrs/wk). Player B is way ahead on "roll-playing" (16 hrs/wk), but really isn't too far behind on "role-playing" (12 hrs/wk) either! And they're both far, far better at BOTH aspects than either of the other players who spend very time on either skill (4 hrs/wk).

I have an observation to add to this. The rules for role playing are rarely changing, yet the rules for roll playing are always changing. Say this group was playing 3.5e and a lot of time building both skills then 3.5e ends and they start 4e and recruit a newbe... Then they will ALL seem pretty good at role playing to the newbe while everyone is starting at square one with zero roll playing experience in the new system. I suspect when people get older and they lose that fire to optimize the 10th new system, they can still pull out decades of skill at role playing and wow the table even if they are not slaughtering their opponents anymore.

I have definitely run into "pull your weight" people in conventions... a lot of them. In one game I had a magic item which enhanced my basic attacks but not my special attacks, so I was using a lot of basic attacks during the scenario. I swear these people were going to have an aneurysm. They were constantly trying to tell me what I was supposed to do next. Chill out and let me play my own character, please! One even had the temerity to say I was holding the team back... but I was running a higher DPR than any of them; and doing it with mostly basic attacks. I honestly don't see how any of these guys have any fun playing the game like it's some kind of SWAT exercise.


The reason I think people think of them as opposites is because people tend to focus more on the side of the game they like more. So a guy who loves optimizing is going to spend more time developing his Roll play skill and less time on his Role play skill, or vice versa for the Fluff guy.


I have always said Roleplay and Rollplay(optimization) are two separate skills. So I guess I agree with Ashiel's RP alignment axis.

Naw, that sounds sorta legit; it's when your boyfriend joins up with the local Tea-Party group, citing "excessive governmental intereference between humanity and monsterkind relations" as the primary reason for joining said Tea-Party group... that's when you should start getting worried. ;)

Does the Tea Party take former Occupy movement members? Does it count that my boyfriend is huge into cosplay?

why do I feel as if I have met your bf before?

I suppose it's entirely possible if you run in those circles.

In which case you might have also met me depending on when and where you know him from.

what cons do you go to?

Not many these days... I used to go to Gen Con a lot, but now with work being weird about giving me time off it may be a while before I can get a big enough weekend. I do usually always attend Jafax anime convention for at least one day since it's local. But they lost their venue and we will see if there will actually be one in 2016.

They'll take anyone who can hate on teh Obama just like Kyle's Mom could hate on Canada; the cosplay part should be easy since "Darling" is usually in normal clothing, apron, or a towel, unless gender reverse cosplay is involved.

No I wasn't concerned that he was going to dress up... He does make me wear cosplay outfits. And I model for him... he is a bit of a struggling artist. It wouldn't surprise me to see a partially completed monster girl costume waiting for me when I go over to his place.

It's relevant in the fact that 99.9999999% of all other demons are evil, so there is reason for the paladin to be suspicious of the succubus.

Is it? I don't think so. This demon mattered here NOT the unknown number of other evil ones. Unless it is absolute that they can only be evil then it is evil to attack someone who is doing good deeds. It would be pretty obvious that the demon wasn't the normal variety just by its actions. He didn't even ask anything... Just attack on sight.


The fact that this demon WAS good proves that in this GMs game not all demons are evil. Whether she was mortal isn't relevant.


The entire excuse for the Paladin not suffering any fall amounts to. He was racist (against demons) so it was a good act to kill one in his mind, and that's all that matters. It doesn't matter that she was doing a good act, non-violent, and clearly supported by the good people of the church when he happened upon her. Nope, she was of a race he doesn't like so murder = good in some of your minds. Frightening.

Like Twilight?


Kazaan makes an excellent point, the stats are not hugely important. I often come to the concept before I roll a single stat. In other words a scholar can have either a high Int or a low Int, it just makes the low Int one more specialized to fewer subjects and probably struggled a bit in school.


~skipping all the pages~
The paladin falls... I am puzzled why anyone thinks differently.
The commission of an act of evil even once immediately causes a fall. It doesn't matter that the paladin was too stupid to recognize what was going on, was tricked by circumstance into thinking something evil was happening, nor does it matter what oaths they swore. The CORE code of the paladin was violated. He did EVIL. He falls.

Now as a player I would be pissed at the GM for placing a GOOD creature that detects as EVIL. HOWEVER if I was the paladin I would immediately surrender myself for judgement to the village authorities, do anything in my power to correct my mistake even paying a true resurrection fee to restore the Succubus, and I would then seek an atonement for my error to restore my powers. AND if any of this derails the campaign it is clearly the GMs fault for deliberately creating a situation with a HIGH likelihood of making me fall.


It is unlikely clearcutters would have much luck fooling a person as perceptive as she clearly is (high wis). She probably has very little patience for memorizing details (low Int) and as a result has avoided reading books in favor of exploring the wilds. Perhaps a parent or mentor was a monk and did their best to instill discipline in the half breed child. Her communication skills are average and she is disciplined and lawful so it is unlikely she would misspell simple words like book or learning... big words or knowledge specific ones like anthropogenic would give her a headache and leave her clueless.

You mean relatively of course. My elves are impossible to play as anything other than older than me in years. But I tend to create characters that are starting out their careers as early adults; late teens to early twenties in human years. And my characters that start out at higher levels tend to have older adult age categories; 20s-30s in human years... I don't think I have ever played an elderly person.


It's late late at night and I can't stop laughing...

I sit absentmindedly at my computer sneaking glances over at my purchase; a pair of black leather boots that will look absolutely stylish when I wear them this fall. Of course the thought of a Hazmat Fest has me giggling and that distracts me back to the computer again. What would a Hazmat fest even look like? People all showing up in their latest hazmat suit fashions? What events would there be? Seminars on the latest material handling techniques? Games involving hazardous materials? Films about past spills? And of course the exhibit hall filled with the latest gadgets. Perhaps they would even do a special event where they spill something dangerous at the festival and let everyone have fun containing and cleaning it up! And the food? Five alarm chili Texas style?

Why am I thinking about the new Fallout game now? Hmmmm...

Well, I've reached a major milestone: After *finally* obtaining, assembling, and populating my mini shelf, I decided to "have at" my minis and books. (My birthday was back in June, but this week my work finally had a "down week" so my time was 1/3 new employee mentoring docs, 1/3 researching application security, and 1/3 building shelving for myself).

So I used the lead testing kit I obtained earlier this year, and learned to my dismay that pretty much ALL of my minis from my childhood games were lead. Into a ziploc hazardous waste bag. *sob*. Then I rearranged my gaming shelves and...
...my APs finally take up more than one shelf! Woo hoo!

Anyway, let me know if you want 2-3 pounds of ancient lead figures in bad shape; otherwise off to wherever it is lead goes they go.

(Yeah, I know lead figures aren't THAT much of a risk, but we have multiple kids under 3 over every month, so swallowing IS a risk, and then I have a bunch of teenagers every week and they're going to be messed up enough without any additional exposure to lead, thanks...)

Perhaps sell them to a scrap metal dealer?

Motorcycles are fun. And they are definitely NOT fuel air bombs ... Lack of any protective structure is fair though. Most tragic accidents are due to idiot drivers not the bikes themselves.

So today begins with mini golf, followed by laser tag. I'll probably win at mini golf again for the simple reason that all of the obstacles are designed with right handed players in mind and playing left handed makes the whole course easier. :)

Be grateful your man has a job... Mine just sits around playing MMOs and watching anime all day. He doesn't even clean very often relying on the pity of me or his family to help him out.

3 people marked this as a favorite.

It was a quiet morning as I stood amid the pre-opening hush at the local outlet mall. I stood at the corner in the shade under the awning and let the cool air blow gentility across my legs and through my hair. The air was electric with the anticipation of the opening and heavy with the flowery aroma of the nearby candle shop. Soon I would be browsing through all the clothing and trying out new looks... Ahhh... Retail therapy.


I am now watching four anime; Gate, Food Wars, Overlord, and Monster Girls...

You all know I love Gate and Food Wars by now... Overlord seems odd, not sure whether to like or dislike it yet. My boyfriend got me watching Monster Girls and now every time I see it I wonder 'is my boyfriend perverted? Will he ask me to dress up as a monster next?' The anime seems to just be a sitcom centered around perverse situations with monsterous girls.

Yes the irony didn't escape me that the least moral man was seeking the most moral solution.

But the four solutions (as I understand them):
-Synthesis: requires you to forcibly mutate every being in the galaxy against it's will. That's evil.

-Destroy: Safely eliminates the threat... but genocides the entire Geth race and Edi, as well as any other machine beings. Evil if you consider AI's to be people too. And after fighting SO hard for the Geth / Quarian peace I wasn't going to do THAT.

-Control: You sacrifice yourself to save everyone else... and gain an AI with your personality that controls the greatest force in history. Not good for you but it harms no one else.

-Refuse: Seriously who would let the reaping continue after ALL that struggle? Oh and obviously evil.

I'd disagree on Control. You're effectively ** spoiler omitted ** I made the same decision I did with Saren in the first game and the Geth in the second, ** spoiler omitted **...

but the reapers have no free will, they are controlled by the little boy AI. Effectively they don't change when the Shedard AI takes over they just get an upgraded AI mistress who is a lot more moral. I am not convinced you would go mad, the little boy AI didn't.

Even though my system is fairly new I feel your pain... my video card has started to burn out and crashes the system on all those highly rendered games I like. I have lowered the graphics levels in all my games to compensate but I fear I am only delaying the inevitable need to buy a new computer.

It seems these things tend to die just after the warranty expires.


I am really liking Gate more and more. It's frustrating waiting the week between episodes. Absolutely loving the culture shock.

My hair is light brown and looks great with blonde highlights... but I have never dared actually dye the color to something else. I have always wanted to. But wasn't allowed when I was younger and now that I am older and can probably get away with it I find myself worried about how bad my roots would look a few days after a dye job. So I still don't...

Edit: If I did I would totally go blonde. No weird colors like purple, pink, or blue. I do have a respectable job.

Maybe when the gay-hating pit preacher comes to campus I'll just play bagpipes in his face, in full viking age garb for added obnoxiousness.

Oh I love it when those hateful type preachers come to campus. Usually it goes poorly for them. They proudly proclaim I am going to hell as I walk past. I stop and loudly proclaim their heresy before God and then quote the Bible to them. This angers them and they demand I repent. Instead I quote more of the Bible and rebuke them... I even got one of them once to deny the entire book of Mathew. They really have to learn that preaching lies is NOT going to satisfy God.


Tacticslion the odd flavors might be an improper setting for the mixtures on the machines themselves. I have seen this happen with other fountain drinks that came from improperly adjusted machines. You might just be dealing with a bad technician rather than bad machines.

I haven't tried a freestyle machine yet, and the closest one I know about is in Cedar Point amusement park. So it may be some time yet before I get to try it myself.

I like perfectly blended flavors and the farther in the past you go the more prone I was to loving unique flavors.

But really Pepsi on crushed ice slices apart thirst like a ninja without the sticky feeling most sodas leave in your mouth afterwards. It's like the ice washes it all away.

Yes and no. Even leaving Norse Heathens aside, there are modern religious groups with restrictions on cutting hair and the like, not to mention dress code.

It's actually pretty clear law that you can't set company policy to discriminate based on religion, even if it's superficially a neutral thing - like hair length or shaving. If there are actual work reasons, then it's a different story. Safety issues or something like that.

I don't know... If I were a Muslim woman and applied for a job at hooters it's a fair bet to say I wouldn't get the job owing to the fact that I would be required to dress modestly by my religion and that violates dress code. And I seem to recall different cases where the courts have upheld hooters uniform code.
