EDIT: It's going to be a long couple of seasons. :/

be warned - the two plot twists are INCREDIBLY PAINFULLY STUPID.

Welp. I think I just found one.

** spoiler omitted **

EDIT: coding fix and another thought

I stopped watching after that. My wife kept watching. She described the VERY END of the series as dumb, but also incredibly sweet.

Good morning folks.

Finally had a shift at the second job last night. I missed a shift because of the cough and fever, but I made it to the meeting on Wednesday which was good. Shift was awesome, wandered East Village for several hours hitting the usual spots with a new guy. I tired a bit easily due to still being under the weather, but I would say I am upper 80's, low 90's with respect to being myself.

They patched my tire for free.

Thank you, guy in the next lane who told me my tire was flat (-tish).
Thank you, guy at the tire place who pulled out that screw and plugged the leak for free.
And for the guy who left the screw in the road... well, you know.

Screw him?

yes.

My lifelong obsession with leaving screws in roads in other states pays off at last!

Cell phone broke today. Doesn't recognize I have an SD card or a phone charging it, so that's fun. Did everything possible for it including factory reset, and it's still being a pain.

I know that pain. My s3 just died one day. No warning. Just turned off and refused to turn back on. Any insurance?

I am feeling a bit more like myself.
First day this week I haven't coughed until i felt like retching, or broken out into a cold sweat without preamble.

I think he may have added a little history beyond what they have. Something like the Spiders helped fight...the Kolat or something? So they were legitimately recognized as a clan, and are kind of allowed to exist as a force in the Shadowlands, similarly to the Damned Legions of the Crab Clan - fight the taint with the taint, as it were. The Spider, naturally, are not content to remain IN the Shadowlands, obviously, but they play up like they are.

GM employs a ton of political intrigue in his games. Seriously...we average one combat a game in about six hours of play. It's ALMOST enough to make me consider playing a courtier if I die.

Almost...but not quite. Still not worth being a worthless lump when the fights do come.

That's a fascinating take on the Spider, and a campaign I would enjoy being one in.

For the further glory of Daigotsu-sama! FOR THE SPIDER!

Impus Minor's game last night was cut unfortunately short by a desperate need for sleep by the adults at his table, but we had some epic hilarity as Impus Major's necromancer finally got to control some undead (with no Knowledge: Religion he was just burning charges hitting every unusual-looking creature we saw with Command Undead). What did he get?

A swarm, of course.

Cue an entire night of sending a swarm of undead minions ahead of us into every room to take care of whatever was in there. With all kinds of questions like, "Can my swarm carry me? Can they carry my stuff? Can I get them to all sing and dance in a chorus?"

Pretty hilarious...

singing, dancing undead would be pretty awesome.

Hope your headache eases up soon, Lynora.

Sorry you are so ill, Freehold. Clearly, Alton Brown has finally weaponized bleu cheese mold and infected you to test it. Like Nobody, I recommend spicy foods, but also with alcoholic beverages to disinfect your liver and blood.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did. I'm sure Joss Whedon is to blame for Fred Perry not showing up to terrorism, and zuckerberg was somehow responsible for the poor sales.

I'm getting better with time. The coughs only hurt my chest, not my entire body. And no fever is good.

I was gaming the other day and we were talking about movie remakes. Someone was upset about Rocky Horror being remade because it was so great. I said that it really wasn't a good movie. It is really about a shared experience. He said that I don't understand because I'm not gay. I quickly responded with, "You don't know anything about me. I could be gay, straight, bi, a pansexual transman, or anything else." The look I got from everyone at the table was priceless. They all seemed genuinely shocked that I was arguing that I could be gay. That's the opposite of how most arguments go.

They still don't know anything about me. :) It's really no one's business. I just thought it was a funny little anecdote.

indeed, there are no signs on foreheads.

So, I am at work. Sick. But i couldnt take the day off because I was on vacation for the past 3 days. The fever seems to have broken, which is good, but i am still sweaty, achy, and coughing. Staying in the office away from other people today.

Turns out I am sicker than I thought. 102 degree fever. No wonder I wasn't my usual effervescent self, with the refreshing taste of lime-on.

This week, my Scorpion clan ninja discovers gaijin drugs in a building owned by the Crane clan player. He is being framed. He is a PC so I steal the drugs to eliminate evidence towards him, and in character plan to use it to blackmail him to my service. I of course don't want to be seen publicly with it so I pass the drugs to the Mantis clan player I have arranged an alliance with earlier. He plants the drugs in the Crane clan member's room in the imperial spring palace (he's engaged to the emperor's cousin). The other player, an imperial courtier, forges documentation saying the crane warrior's father is a drug lord. (Courtier was boning his woman.)

Seeing crane clan in a cage hung 50ft up for his crime awaiting execution, I yell out, "NOW I want to see what use you are!"

I then laughed, told him "I can swim, Crane," and ate crunchy nuts (as a popcorn replace) while I watched his arranged marriage just before his execution.

(I can swim is the scorpion motto in response to the tale of the scorpion and the frog...scorpion asks for a ride, frog is scared, scorpion says if I kill you we both die, halfway scorpion stabs frog, frog says we both die now, scorpion says but frog I can swim.)

I was the only one who didn't actually frame him, but I was danged if I wasn't going to laugh at the fact he was and join in after.

nice. Very nice.
Uh, FH, I'm pretty sure that's that's the opposite of "nice" - do we need to go through our Elmo Opposite book with you?

it is nice compared to what I would do as a loyal servant of Daigotsu Kanpeki-sama. At least before the property was sold and anti spider fans started being ugly.

Okay. Day 3 is underway. Let's sell some shirts.

I have developed an awful cough and my voice is raspy. Not the best for this front line person interaction but what choice do I have?

This has been a more normal day at the con- although anything would look good after yesterday. It's going to be on Sunday to provide the real boost in sales to make this a success.

Am I the only one on these boards who likes giving PCs cinematic, epic bossfights that let them use all of their special abilities without letting them curbstomp the BBEG? Seems like people are focused on "beating" the PCs with cheap tricks rather than giving them an epic climax.

probably because 4 PCs vs one bad guy results in a curbstomp. Many do not add extra npcs to their boss battles to even things out.

Okay. Got a good night's sleep, a change of wardrobe, and a change in energy and perspective.

Sorry to hear the Con is slow starting FH.

Sorry if you've mentioned this before, (but I'm an OLD wizard, and my mind isn't what it used to be!) ;P

What is it you sell at the conventions? :)

EDIT- I don't get to attend many conventions, but in my limited experience, isn't the Fri night is usually the slowest? As it takes the attendees a day or so to decide what they want to spend their money on? Or they are like me, and wait until the last possible minute to part with their cash before leaving. ;)

I'd be cool with it if we were open Friday hours(4 hours or less), but we were open regular hours (12 to 8). Not good.

I sell shirts at conventions, although I used to sell all sorts of hentai and anime thingies.

Hmmmmm?

yeeeees?

We don't sell it anymore. The world has changed, and everyone just downloads their sweet sweet h from j-list or manga gamer or wherever.

I miss those days, though. Be lying if I said I didn't. There were people who remembered me and said they bought their first h from me and shook my hand and such. And the people who were so proud when they couldn't shop with us one year and then came back showed their id and said they'd like to buy one of everything. And the girls who used to tease us when we told them they couldn't shop with us year after year and then came back en masse, said they were 18 and posed for a picture with us.

Man, those were the days.

This is a night for some amazing animation. I just saw this episode of Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil, and this episode of Bob's Burgers.

Well, this con is off to a rough start.

This is the slowest Friday at a con I have seen this year, and indeed the slowest since 2014. Barely 700 bucks in business.

Second, and perhaps worse, is that Fred perry cancelled. I went into my storage space and dug around for nothing, it seems. *sigh*

Third, my cell phone was not delivered to my mom's house like I thought it would be. I will be going over to her house stupidly early in the morning and picking up the tag so I can see where it is waiting and if it will be re-delivered or if I can just pick it up. According to what I see here, the nearest pickup point is in the middle of nowhere in queens. *SIGH*

I'm disappointed, but tomorrow is another day. Maybe I'll hit the jackpot at the casino or something.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That's a bit long, even by my standards. I would be more worried that this character was going to take over the game, but that's just me and my experiences. I can see how it would br a bit too dark for a dm, I would edit things down to off camera suggestions/implications as opposed to open descriptions.

Clearly you have been drinking. It's okay, I know you are under a lot of stress of late.

This concept, though, of course, never put into those words, is called number sense and is usually (i.e. more traditionally) taught with otherwise simple concepts like "anything times 1 = itself" and "anything over itself = 1" or similar.

I wish to clarify, that my two off-the-cuff examples in no way encapsulates the entirety of "number sense" - not even close.

Instead, it is merely meant to represent two minor (and often confusing) aspects of number sense and how things relate to each other.

What's funny is that it can't - because it's already made of energy, so it's not flammable.

The only thing relative to yourself and that post that can "burn" (regrettably), then, is the screen you're looking at when you fire those "torpedoes" (which are usually detonation instead of incendiary substances, which normally don't work underwater anyway, which underwater regions would be really awkward places to use torpedoes anyway - as a related aside, are you okay, and do happen to need any immediate medical attention; no reason, just asking).

Whoops~! Sounds expensive~!

(Also, your "descriptive text" is, by definition, in this case, mathematical in nature, whether or not it uses classically-recognized "numbers" because, as noted in the post, math is, ultimately, merely a language used to describe universal phenomena. Often confusingly to certain people.)

Also the post was almost half about the failures of the English language. Like, 13 of those paragraphs were dedicated to the problems with English, with 15 others referencing math. So, you know, you could stick to those, if you like.

as it is energy,it is perpetually aflame. So no need for burning screens.

ANYWAY!

FREEHOLD: my wife's birthday is tomorrow!

Some of the things she loves:

- Firefly! And Serenity! And R. Tam Sessions!

- And Avengers! And Avengers 2! And Captain America! And Winter Soldier!

- And Toy Story!

- And Whedon's version of Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing! (though, to be fair, she likes Shakespeare and variants and different takes on it in general, so... that one might not count)

- And Dr. Horrible!

FREEHOLD: in reference to the above listed things that she likes, what are you going to do to celebrate her birthday?!

Go to terrificon, and prep for a convention weekend where I will meet Fred perry and get his autograph.

I watched Archer prior to summer of this year on Netflix on your say-so. I'm unfortunately hooked, now, invested into those terrible people and their stories of sort-of heroism, so now that the Eldest is at school, I can actually watch it when the Youngest naps. :)

EDIT: I know I told you this at the time; I'd have to stop watching it when summer started.

It's because, despite of, or maybe because of, their many faults, they're still basically good people who end up, through no fault of their own, doing the right thing. :-)

The Placebo Effect episode is a great example, that deep down Archer cares about people. :-)

edit: You should also check out Bob's Burgers. :-)

that was a storyline that I'm glad finished. Archer is an a*+&@&&(not a monster, mind, just an a+*&&@~), and they really need to stay on point with that otherwise the character is as all over the map as archer vice was.
