Fortunately being a supervisor means I get to retreat to my desk to do important things periodically like kick my shoes off or post to FaWtL. But I still fear for my toes.

Yes I know you are on your honeymoon, but I need to move my 403b into a certain company. Yes. All of it. I need to sit on the board of directors. I have big plans for this company. Big plans....

Normally I recommend diversification, but I can tell your priorities lie elsewhere.

On review, the assassin PrC is pretty craptastic. I might create the same concept with a ninja. Also considering a mesmerist, though. I've always thought domination magic is far more evil than necromancy.

And for you!! We didn't realize you were getting married till it popped up on FB the day of! The things you miss when you leave the OTD threads I guess.

I am so happy for you, the pictures are beautiful! You guys look so happy, and like everyone had so much fun.

I thought everything went wonderfully. We had a blast!
how long are you two honeymooning for?

It's pretty short. 4 days.

Which is probably just as well because the food at this resort is expensive (but very very good).

I have been playing Skyrim off and on since it came out and I am still finding new places and doing quests that I have never done before. I think that this time I might just finish the No Stones Left Unturned quest.

Also it has been fun doing limited fast travel in Skyrim. I can only fast travel between main cities that have carriages or other means of travel between holds. But I can't fast travel there until I have walked to that city first. Dawnstar is a prime example. It has both a carriage and a boat that allow access to other cities. But Winterhold does not have either so I can go to that cities by carriage or boat but I have to walk out from there. OTOH I will allow a fast travel point from the College of Winterhold to any main city (got to love teleportation) if I am student there. That also makes getting a carriage at my three houses an important deal. At this point I have yet to get to Dawnstar, Markarth, and Solitude.

Edit - I do sometimes "cheat" on the fast travel bit but only if I go to one of my houses to offload all of the accumulated junk and then come straight back to the point that I left.

I've been trying to be more mindful of fast travel this playthrough, but it can be so tempting. For instance, once you've been to High Hrothgar the first time, trekking up and down that mountain is a chore.

However, I do your city to city travel one step further - I actually hire the boats and carriages. Then it is not cheating.

I got mad at myself recently though. I fetched Esbern from Riften and rather reflexively fast traveled to Riverwood. Then I wondered, "what is it like walking the whole way with him?" Oh well.

Thank you for the well-wishes everyone! I got hitched.

FHDM held it together very well. Or else it was simply the fact that there were so many people who were far drunker, so he seemed relatively sober. Hope that headache wears off! I think the only reason I was not drunk was that I was too busy partying.

In any event, it was all awesome. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Freehold took a picture if us under the entrance to the "Normandy" ballroom (even though that wasn't the one we were using) for important geek reasons.

Everyone had a great time, I think.

Tomorrow we are off to Puerto Rico! (For about 4 days)

As I mentioned the other day, my old high school classmate was visiting my brother, and he had his 20-something son with him. Come to find out, the boy is skipping college in favor of a career as an electrician. He's currently enrolled in an apprenticeship program, making about $15 an hour. He has the potential to eventually earn anywhere from $45-65 per hour.

Would that more young men and women could see past the lie peddled by the education establishment that you need a college degree to make a good living.

The trades are a great place to make a living. Especially if you have the initiative to start your own business eventually.

I don't think college is a total sham. However, a lot of people are taking majors that are almost guaranteed to be duds, and they are piling up massive debts doing it. I'm guilty, my communications degree is worthless. I was told there were a lot of jobs, but I was not told that a middle-aged man had almost no shot at the entry-level positions in the field. Those are usually reserved for the flood of 22-year-old females that enter the field every year. They have something I can never match. The ability to catch and hold the attention of male customers.

Agreed that college is not a total sham. There are certain fields (law, medicine, and engineering for example), that certainly require a degree. And there are some worthwhile classes that can be taken to expand one's horizons, so to speak. I once took a thoroughly enjoyable class on jazz music.

Certainly there are classes of that sort. I myself have taken art classes, and a very nice SciFi of the mid-twentieth century course. I'd take more of these types of classes if college prices weren't batsh!t insane. For the two college classes I am enrolled in right now I pay $8353. That's TWO classes. One semester, part time. My four-year tuition in the late Eighties? $12,000. That's full-time, five classes a semester for...

For those with the time and inclination, you can usually audit classes for a few hundred dollars. All the education at a fraction of the expense, so long as you don't need the credits for a degree.

The game sounds interesting, but I'm not sure I could handle the evil. I feel guilty about pulling the wings off butterflies in Skyrim.

I feel like I have to apologize whenever I trap somebody in a black soul gem. I try to reserve that fate for necromancers and the like. Random soldiers don't deserve that fate.

So, just floating this out there. I keep revisiting my idea of a Suicide Squad-style mission where the PCs get to play super-evil characters enlisted against their will to perform a mission. I'm thinking just before Christmas I'll be pulling the trigger. I'm floating out here in the Treefort to see if there is any interest before I broaden the recruitment.

The bones of the story will be the old 3.0 adventure City of the Spider Queen. I'll need one player to assume the role of 'handler', basically ensuring that the other PCs stay on target. That person would have to be LN, or perhaps a very principled LE. The others? Well, this is the chance to play a fairly-high-level villainous character using any 3pp material you can find. I'm going to try and unearth my Book of Vile Darkness for this as well.

Players would start off in some sort of fantasy-based SuperMax prison designed to hold highly-skilled and magical beings.

Motives could be anything. You could just want to escape. Perhaps indulge in whatever vile things your character is famous for. Suborn and convert the drow to your foul gods.

I'll keep y'all posted

I'm in. My life is about to become way less hectic.

Evil games can be caster-heavy, so I might think of an assassin or else some type of tank.

I think I don't get it.
cultural diffence I guess

That's a weird linguistic thing. A wedding shower is a party. In Cis partnering cases the bridal shower is a special party for a bride and her female friends and family. Gifts are given to the bride. I'm not sure what the procedure for a non-cis shower is.

Honestly I have no idea why it is called a shower. Shower with gifts maybe? It's the only type of party in English called a 'shower'

Yep. The were pics from the wedding shower.

Even a lot of opposite-sex couples are doing the "Jack and Jill showers" these days, rather than the all-female gatherings of yesteryear. Some friends and family decided to throw us one in that vein.

Freehold was there :)

I guess I am behind the current cultural modality , but wasn't the 'batchelor party' supposedly the groom's special party?

But hey I know a lot of women have batchelorette parties now, so I guess the more parties the merrier!

I don't know that they were ever meant to be equivalent. I think bridal showers originated as a way for people to give a future homemaker everything she would need to run a household, since it was assumed that a young woman would live with her parents until she was married off, and would need to start from scratch on supplies do cooking, cleaning, and so on.

I think the principle is still to help a couple get started on a life together, although these days I think couples are usually a lot better established far earlier.

Snow predicted overnight here. Not much, but even a dusting sucks IMO.
hey!
I get you have the cold template, but snow is a serious obstacle to me. Like, literally I cannot get out of my street if there's more than an inch on the ground. Thus snow isn't fun or happy to me. It's like Mother Naturebis throwing down annoyance and loss of pay in frozen form. Plus, that sh!t is cold, yo.

Seconded on all counts.

Despite being one of the snowiest cities in the country, Syracuse rarely plows the streets (they usually only put down salt, which turns the roads into a sludgy mess that rots out the bottom of your car), and the sidewalks never get shoveled, which means that by January, they're solid ice. During the winter, the city is barely navigable, even by car.

for the love of God, why don't they plow?!?!
Because no one around here gives a f*$% about anything. Also because the people in Syracuse are so broke that the city can't get enough tax revenue.

If there's one thing I'll give Rochester, it's that they plowed constantly. Even the sidewalks (with little sidewalk-sized plows). Maybe they haven't given up on life quite as thoroughly as Syracuse.

Decided against going to the party, but hung out with a group of people from my college's LGBTQ alliance and cooked lots of food.

I've been quite happy with my friends, lately. It's gotten to the point where my friends will correct other people on my pronouns- makes it a lot easier for me, since I get really anxious to correct other people. Making progress :D

Does anyone know any fantasy literature with LGBTQ protags? I've been looking for some!

there was something that ch mentioned. I'll ask him about it next time I see him.

My picks tend to involve gay or bi male protagonists.

I was probably mentioning the Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling. Those guys are adorable. I've only got a couple books left to read and that makes me sad. I am spacing them out.

Richard K. Morgan's A Land Fit for Heroes series is well done, but very gritty.

Also, seconding the Last Herald Mage series by Lackey, but I agree it would probably show its age at this point.
