Alignment in general has come under fire as alignment-light mmo games have increased in popularity and class abilities are seen as party resources- if the party needs the paladins abilities in a situation that the paladin wouldn't enter as a character, that's tough nuggies: the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the individual.

I'm running into issues with complaints about rogues in my kingmaker game along with complaints about finesse weapons and rapiers specifically, the idea of a single class having so many skills and being able to do so much damage through what some see as clever rule exploits is causing some friction. People seem to either want the rogue more or less powerful-noone is happy with the way things are currently.

Note that this is only my experience and opinion.

Healers and Ranger are my personal favorites, but I love me some rogue too just the way they are. My only complaint with healer types is the lack of skill points. I really like having a broad range of skills. Traits or class dipping let me diversify my skills, but I find it all but impossible to improve them with a cleric's skill points. I really liked the 3.5 cloistered cleric.

Kind of like my cleric in Jess Door's Wrath of the Righteous PbP. He gets 1 skill point per level. :(

In other news, I stopped by a little book shop today and picked out George Orwell's Animal Farm and William S. Burroughs's Naked Lunch. The proprietor thought I was insane. But insane in a vaguely impressive way, so I'm okay with that.

So... Dawn of the Dreadfuls, Dreadfully Ever After, or Classic Regency romance now with ultraviolent zombie mayhem?

I downloaded the ePUB of P&P&Z (sounds like a sandwich) from the local library and just finished it, silly thing that it is. The best part is the reader's guide at the end. Now that I know it's permissible to take a classic novel and embellish it with a few new sentences and a sprinkling of changes, my first book will be out before too much longer!

OK, the best part is when Elizabeth lops off Lydia's head, except she doesn't really. But didn't we all want to? Confess!

That is absolutely the best part.

I need to return to 'Moby Dick' and 'Heart of Darkness' though, because I'm finding what I read affects how I write. I'm sure Wayfinder doesn't need the story of a poor but virtuous and spirited half-orc girl's adventures with beaux and balls.
I don't recall exactly from Moby-Dick but in "Benito Cereno" you need at least four clauses marked off by commas per sentence.

I could do that but don't want to be haunted by the ghost of James Thurber.

That sounds like a euphemism for a sex act, although I have no idea how that would work.

A little of everything. According to Wikipedia, it would have been Irish, Italians, Poles, Germans, and Ukrainians, with a very large Jewish population.

Plus Deep Ones.

Yesterday I made ratatouille. It was delicious. I am glad I made a large pot of it and have leftovers.

We can assume Eliva would cast it. Jess has been rather busy of late, but I don't think she would hold back on that spell if someone needs it.

In other news, I am still pushing through Moby Dick. I kind of have to read it in small doses, and I have given myself permission to skim things like long chapters on this history of whaling and the like.

I'm stressed, so currently reading an Agatha Christie mystery. It's mind candy. Sue me.

I have a soft spot for Agatha Christie. They just don't write mysteries like that anymore. Murder is so much cooler when it is committed by rich people in a setting containing a finite number of people, all of whom have motives.

If I'm ever murdered, I hope it is like that.

A quick review indicates that I have given the group a scroll of lesser restoration on two occasions. Whether any have been used, I do not know, but it is certainly possible you have two among you.

I keep meaning to do something about my wisdom teeth. They are all completely in and there was plenty of space for them, but now I have a problem with tooth decay back there.

Plus one of them broke in half a couple years ago.

They don't hurt, though.

Going back a bit in the conversation, I’d just like to say fourthed, about not transitioning to be a stereotypical girly-girl. Can we say the motion passes? :)

I can imagine that some of my mannerisms might shift to be more conventionally feminine if that ends up feeling right as more people start reading and interacting with me as a woman, but no more than for any young woman figuring out what people expect of her and how much of that tends in a direction she’s interested in going.

I find myself constantly repeating to doctors and therapists that I’m establishing what feels feminine for me, because that’s how I like to think of myself, but I have no interest in setting myself up as the girliest girl ever or in judging people for the ways in which they define and engage with femininity and masculinity (or not), so long as they extend everyone the same courtesy.

I think the expectation that trans* people conform to stereotypical notions of how a given gender is supposed to behave ignores that great diversity of people within any gender. In my own experience, I would say that only a minority of the cis-women I have known fit the "girly girl" model, but they are no less women because of it. It is silly that people would hold transwomen to a different standard.

Meanwhile, women's fashion has relocated to the grand Pocket Desert and primarily switched to offering us the insulting sacrifice of the decorative fake pocket.

That's because you can put things in your stomach-pouch, duh.

** spoiler omitted **

Are you sure there are no pockets? On a lot of suits, the pockets are sewn shut for transport, but you are supposed to pull out that stitch. Make sure that is the case, though, before you start pulling apart your suit :)

This thread has been quiet lately. So glad that the last post was about Florida drivers.

Because, apparently, there is no limit to what one might be doing behind the wheel. Like grooming their genitals.

John's nephew is being christened tomorrow and they are having a big party. Really big. Like 100+ people.

I have never heard of such a thing. Even his family thinks its weird, but his brother-in-law is all about it. My family never really had parties at all. I know some do, but they're usually small and for close family only. It looks like they are inviting everybody that they know.

Of course, there's also the fact that they don't really have the kind of money to be hosting 100 people at a party, especially with a baby to support, but they could not be talked out of it, so now we are all helping out as much as we can...

Orthos, you stop having birthdays at 29 and just celebrate the anniversary instead. That way you never get older.

Oh I understand the excuse of it. I just never thought it necessary =) I'll be hitting 30 next June.

Ebon and I had a friend who did that a lot when we were both living in Phoenix, it was always a little silly we thought.

Yeah, I agree with you on this, Orthos. I'm 37 and I have never in my life seen any reason to be ashamed of my age. I mean, geez, it's not like there's something wrong with getting older. I think of it more as an achievement. Hey, look, I made it another year without dying. Woo! ;P
For me, it's silly for multiple reasons (mainly that nobody ever believes I'm over 30). I'm 33 and quite happy. =)

I'm 35 and only now do I look in my 30s.

Thanks Dad! :-D

People usually peg me for mid-20s. It's flattering, but also frustrating professionally because people assume I lack experience.

Nothing stays good for you for long, it seems. I hear milk is actually bad for your bones these days! I just ignore the lot and eat what I like these days. Easier than trying to keep up with the latest 180's.

It's the low-fat and fat-free milk they are criticizing, when for decades they said those were infinitely better for you than whole milk.

Sometimes I think they are just guessing.

WTF? What requires that much paper?
A job application.
Let me rephrase. What about that job requires that much stuff get filled out? I think the longest applications I've ever had to fill out were four pages long, and only because those devoted a whole page to prior jobs and a whole second page to current and prior residences.

Online job application. I see this basic format a lot:

Page 1: contact information
Page 2: copy & paste or upload resume
Pages 3-8: fill out detailed forms that are basically a duplicate of your resume & contact information, just in different boxes. Sometimes a page of prior residences is included.
Pages 9-15: detailed work history, usually for the past five to ten years, each job on a separate page. I've worked a lot of jobs, so this usually takes a couple hours.
Pages 16-22: 30 to 60 "what would you do if X happened" of "how would you rate X quality on a scale" questions
Pages 23-30: government statistical information and consent forms

Every time in my life that I have filled out a crazy application like that, it never amounted to anything. The job I have now I got by sending my résumé and then interviewing. I'm not sure why that is. Maybe, the more Byzantine the application, the more Byzantine the HR bureaucracy of the company.

My weird food allergy is that certain fresh fruits make my mouth swell up and itch. Apples, pears, and all varieties of stone fruit. But if you cook them, the heat denatures the sugars and I have no problem at all.

No one wants to believe me when I say, "No, I can't eat that apple; I am allergic. Ooh! Can I have a piece of that apple pie? I love apple pie."

It's a real thing, though (called oral allergy syndrome) and I am not alone!

So much talk of whiskey....one of those things that I really really miss. :(

Allergies suck.

Rum is the only thing I have an allergy to, which is good and bad.

Sorry to hear about your allergies. If I recall, you have a lot of food allergies. :(

Yeah, I have serious (like can put me in the hospital serious) allergies to fish and wheat. And a bunch of metal sensitivities. So, you know, I'm only allergic to the stuff that's hard to avoid. The wheat allergy developed within the last year, so I'm still adjusting to all the stuff I can't ever have again. And then there's the list of things I'm not supposed to have because of my ear condition, but I occasionally cheat on anyways. Like alcohol (I can at least still have wine and cider) and caffeine. Chocolate is now a once every few months thing for me, and coffee or tea is like maybe twice a year. I'm not supposed to have salt either, but that's just crazy talk.
Oh man, that's really really difficult. How do you deal?

Well, mostly I don't have a choice. I try to just focus on the things I like that I can still have. And not as much eating out. It's just not safe what with the risk of cross contamination and all. The caffeine withdrawal was hard, but it was a choice between giving up caffeine or letting my ear disease progress to the point where they have to do an operation that permanently destroys my hearing. Even I don't like coffee that much. :)

But sometimes I do get bummed out when I can't have something that I really miss. Like whiskey, donuts, or Korean fried chicken. *shrug* But what can I do? I break out in hives if I even touch something that touched something with wheat in it. So I just gotta deal.

You can't have bonchon?!?!?!?

Dear god. CH and I need to get on a treatment, STAT.

Is Cure Serious Allergies a 4th level spell? Because I don't know if I can part with all of my preparations of water walk.
