My players have a Rug of Teleportation (something I made up to expedite travel between long distances). The last adventure they wiped out the base of a group of mercenaries who also had a few ships in their harbor. Deciding to keep one of the ships for themselves, they knew they couldn't sail it. So the conversation went something like this (I'm using the characters' names):

Elishandra, party Psion Telepath: "We need to get this ship back to our home port".

Al-Viz, the party Bard: "We could hire some sailors and teleport them here."

Nechema, one of the party's tanks: "Yeah, let's cover the rug with seamen and do that."

This was followed by the entire party with a chorus of "EWWWW!" then raucous laughter. Nechema's player blushed so hard I thought she was going to stay that color.

This still hasn't quite sunk in yet for me.
Tell me about it. In about a month I'll hit the end of my 12th year posting on the boards. That's longer than I've been married and twice as long as I've been a father. F+*~ing weird, man.
I believe July is 10 years for me as well. Was on the WOTC boards in 2001 before migrating over here.

I was on the ENWorld forums until 4e came out. I'm not sure how long I've been on the PF forum. A few years but not as long as some of you old duffers.

Young punks.

In MY day we had THACO. And we liked it! >_<

I did not like THAC0. It annoyed me.

That feeling when you craft an especially good bit of gamestuff

I had the next two games just come pouring out of my head onto my notebook. They're both Mythic in scope and I hope they play out as well as I hope.

If I didn't live on such a shoestring budget I'd be first in line to buy them. I love the Midgard setting and what few books I have from the line and wish I could help a fellow gamer and an all around great guy like you out.

Yep. RIP, 007.

G'night, Kjel!

Thank you! Whew! That was a close one!

I chose that avatar for that very reason. That's how I feel half the time GMing for my group... LOL

Good detective work, and I can't blame you for how you feel about him now. That was totally theft.

Well,everybody. Someone's finally done it. Someone has finally pissed me off enough to want someone dead. It seems that, between Yesterday afternoon and this afternoon, someone had drained my checking account to nearly zero. Right now, I'm unable to renew my Transit pass for the week after next week, or even do laundry. There's a branch of my bank that's open tomorrow. I'll go there to try to get this resolved. Wish me luck.

My players were recently granted landless titles as a boon by the NPC king of their realm. The bard asked, "Does this mean I can be addressed as "Lord" now?

The king replied, "Yes."

The bard: "My Saturday nights just got a lot more interesting."

I don't like the point buy system in the least, but 15 points does sound pretty weak for a character that you want to be as tough as the Street Fighter character, or even just to emulate him. I don't have any real advice for you, just throwing my unsolicited two cents in.

I thrive on sunlight.

Ugh. The sunlight already lasts too long each day for me and they will continue to get longer until June, when the slow process of shortening the day begins. I love it when it gets dark around 5 pm. I've always been more comfortable in dark, shadowy places. I think the word for that is nyctophile.

I'm a night person by nature, but I've had to readjust to a daylight schedule because of my dogs. They have to be walked and such during the day. If not for them I'd be up all night and sleep all day.

Eh. I still don't believe it will last more than a season. But that's just me.

Yeah, that's sort of how I feel. I think it'll be a really fun show, but I'll be surprised if it gets a second season. And I like it a lot better than what I've seen of the new Star Trek series.

Heh, speaking of deciding between A & B, no matter what I do my players will usually choose Action Q (something I totally didn't expect). And two of them are the kings of over-planning something. I just let them go at it one game to see how long it would take them to make a decision. They couldn't decide what the best way to open a non-magical, non-trapped, unlocked door was. It took nearly an hour before the Bard finally just walked up and opened the door. Nothing happened.

I guess it's coming from 30+ years of being the nearly sole GM, but no matter what party I'm with I end up being the leader, even if my character has a low CHA. I'm far from a control freak, and am actually quite introverted even among my close friends. But somehow leading the party comes naturally to me. Once you do it a few times you'll get past the nervousness and come into your own, I betcha!

Challenge your comfort zone. At least that's my two cents. You might be really surprised at how well you do.

I've used a CPAP for years. And it's helped me sleep so much better than before. I can't even take a nap without it.

I have a friend like that. She has a very active and clever 2 year old son, so she's always doing several things at once; drawing (she used to work in animation and she's an absolutely astounding sketch artist), cooking, and working part time as a waitress in a restaurant called "The Hungry Monk". I love that name.

Detrivores. I learned a new word today. Thanks, MMCJawa!

I ban Gunslingers because they don't fit the theme of my campaign setting. The same with the "furry" races. I'll use them as foes or just treat most of them like they don't exist, anyway. I run a very anthropocentric game (core races, my own takes on Hobgoblins and the Elan from Dreamscarred Press) and a couple other Human types that I either created for the setting or modified from something else. I've thought seriously in the past of just allowing Humans as the PC race, but that doesn't fit the theme of the setting, either, and I don't want to change something that's been a part of my homebrew for over 20 years.

Dang it, Kjel. Now I want a caracal kitten.

Happy belated birthday! Sorry you didn't get to celebrate it.

You lost me at grapefruit and coffee... lol

Being disabled and unable to work I have nothing but time. You'd think I'd have a spotless house and a ton of games ready to run. But that's depression for you; it doesn't let you do all the things you want or even should. It weighs you down like a blanket made of lead and even physically hurts some days. Fortunately this is not one of those days. It's simply an unmotivated day.. lol. I have a game this weekend but a friend of mine pretty much invited herself down for a visit (which kinda pissed me off, but I'm too much of a sap to say no), so I have to entertain a guest as well as run a game. She's never seen a PF game run before so that'll be her entertainment for tomorrow evening.. lol

Good morning, afternoon, or evening!

My dogs got me up earlier than usual and now I can't go back to sleep. I have a lot of housework to do today, so I guess it's a blessing in disguise. It gives me a little more time to goof off before I have to get started.

Whatever the cause, it's a tragic incident.

Patience, patience. It will.

Was it an accident or intentional? I've not heard much about it, not having access to television news. And I don't really trust FB to be very accurate news-wise.

Fox's new series, "Orville", looks more interesting to me than this. And I'm not a Seth McFarlane fan.

I love Star Trek Continues. There are only 3 episodes left before they shut it down, and that makes me sad. They've done such an excellent job of recreating the original show, even getting writers and actors from TOS to make appearances, as well as cameos by other modern actors who wanted to be a part of it.

And even with my being a really huge Trek fan, I won't get to watch the premier because I don't have cable or satellite television (just a Roku and things like Netflix). Maybe it'll be on Hulu, but with the advent of their CBS All Access streaming channel I doubt they'll put it on that channel. And I'm not going to subscribe to All Access just to watch one show, so I doubt I get to see it all. Which doesn't bother me.

Oh, my!!!

She looks like my granny when she was younger!!! I'm totally not kidding!!!

In Piedrafita there are some iron age settlements so I am not surprised that they found that woman there.

They also make my favorite cheese there.

They didn't mention whether or not she had had children (maybe they didn't check her pelvis bones or they were too degraded to tell). But maybe there's a chance you and several thousand others are related to her. In England few years ago they found someone who was descended from Otzi (the Ice Man).

I really don't like the changes they made for the sake of "artistic license". I'm really big on Trek canon and Star Fleet history (I know it's fiction but I dig it). The uniforms are wrong for the period and I hate hate hate the new Klingon look and their uniforms. They look like something from some bad 80s sci fi movie.

While only tangentially related to food (the woman was determined to be lactose intolerant through genetic testing), I thought this was interesting and it made me think of Kileanna because it's in Lugo.

Everyone seems to be missing the point of the grievance. It's not that things are banned, it's because things are banned for no reason and the GM won't look into or give reasons for banning. That says more about the GM than simply banning...

My grievance today is that I am cursed even when i get to play it seems i can't play what I want or what i play will be pointless. It seems that while when I GM everyone ask for any number of things be it classes, races, subsystems(like PoW) and I will do my best to look it over and make it available if it isn't just right out on the power scale. When they are on the other side we start banning things like-half orcs and monks just because and won't even look at the UC-Rogue to see if that would be allowed. ARRRGGGHHH!!!!

I know what you mean. I only disallow a few things, but another guy I know just flat out might as well play PFS for everything. He claims to be a really open minded GM but try one of his games and you'll find the banhammer everywhere.

I find myself misspelling, omitting words, even whole sentences in things I write now. I used to be nearly flawless with my grammar, syntax, and spelling. Now I think I'm lucky to be understood by anyone sometimes... lol

They're on metric time.

Although I'm disabled and haven't worked in 10 years, I still wait in anticipation for the weekend and dread Mondays. I guess it was drilled into me after so many years of being able to work it's become ingrained behavior.

The summer of 1992 my wife and I were dorm parents at a small college in north central Arkansas. I'd known the director of a program for high school kids who either needed to make up a class or were seeking some early college credits called Upward Bound since we'd been in the program some 10 years earlier.

She asked me would I run a 2 hour weekly session for some kids (2 hours a day were allotted for recreational classes or activities) and I said sure. They paid me $50/week for the 2 hour session. I introduced some 12 kids to AD&D 2e. I don't know if any still play the game, having never kept up with the kids, but they sure enjoyed learning it that summer and I felt great sharing my hobby with them.
