Did you know that all sound engineers are called Mike?

You young people of today...

When I was eight years old, I moved from Oxford, to a gold mining town (Carletonville) in apartheid South Africa. My brother was eight years older than me. He went to university and came back with the red box. At the time, I was a wreck. I had gone through a series of traumas, with the worst two being my difficulty adapting to living in a fascist, racist, fundamentalist state, and surviving sexual abuse by an older boy. I had almost nothing to live for, but that red box gave me a sudden escape. I had already read The Hobbit, and I knew some mythology, but the ability to re-invent myself through D&D hit me with a force that I can still recall. I read the basic and expert rules under the covers with a flashlight, and even a candle, which singed the page with the third level cleric spells on it. It became the best thing in my life, and I naturally wanted to share my discovery with my peers.
Within short order, I was being punched in the gut by children who didn't even know me, spat on from balconies. I had my nine year old head flushed in a used toilet. A teacher confiscated my dice, as evil.
Three older boys grabbed me from the corridoor, into an empty classroom, held me down, and tried to perform an exorcism on me, using latin they probably got from a horror movie. I was sent by the school to a psychiatrist, for atheism, after my notebook was stolen, and handed to the guidance counsellor. I was told by well-meaning adults that I was going to go to hell, and that I had invited Satan into my life. I had one friend. He was also from England, and had the Greyhawk setting, box set. I endured.

In fairness, there was a lot of goofy stuff about my school life. My biology teacher handed out leaflets titled "Is the Kaffir an Ape, or Just a Sub-human?" We had more hours of religious teaching in a week, in my state school, than we had English lessons. We had regular canings and punishment by exercise. My history teacher took pains to explain to the class that carbon dating is a lie...

So sorry you've had to deal with that kind of crap.


And spare a thought for Swedish football coach Mikael Stahre - not only did the team he's in charge of lose their game today, when they went to eat dinner afterwards he got hit in the face by a golf ball (they were at a restaurant at a golf club).

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.

With the amount of pasta I eat, remind me to only nod enthusiastically if we ever meet.

All man Agitator 1/Bluecollar Worker 2

Oy... this is why I stuck to school age children when I was temping.


I've no idea about how the PFSRD makes those decisions, but it was part of the Paizo Modules subscription, and several of the writers are Paizo-staffers. The only thing (other than its size) out of the ordinary is that it also has the Goblinworks logo on the cover. It's clearly a first party product.

Just did something financially stupid, but cool.

Ended up buying them, too, at $10 apiece. Looks like I'm not going to be eating for the next week.
Eating is overrated anyway.
If you could smell the chanterelles I'm frying up for supper you'd not say that.

I think a light flail is what my bard does when he realises the monster he tried to melee had an AC above 10.

So.

Looks like my phone just died. No reason, no explanation, just turned off and won't go past the Samsung logo when I take the battery back out and put it back in. Needless to say, after everything that happened today, where the place I was going to this weekend for a special training on mental health first aid certification said they couldn't find the money order I sent them and so can't give me my certification, and my second job had some kind of error or glitch where they said I didn't work Pride weekend and so didn't pay me either in full or at all(still not sure which), this is...not a good day. Trying to keep it together and not put my fist through something or someONE and I am succeeding. But this is a lot of bad luck for one day.

FIFY

I don't know who that second person is.

Just finished The Rhesus Chart. S$+& went down. I'm a bit bummed that we didn't get to see some of it, though.

Now I think I'm back to a Lovecraft collection. A friend has been bugging me about an idle notion I had to run a Lovecraftian game based on my hometown, informed by the kind of vicious hatred and bleak realism that only a lifetime resident could possess.

I expect at least five unnecessary adjectives per sentence in your review of the Lovecraft collection.


Yep, the story about how Freja got her necklace has lots of room for dirty interpretation even in the censored versions.

In the good grace it was probably intended and don't question it or rile up the argumentative types? =)

srsly if there's any thread to just assume the best of a comment this is probably it

I was mostly wondering if he meant it in a gastronomical sense. Thus the helmet-donning.

Oh, come on. That original post was high-class comedy.


You remember what caused a controversy about the short story Paul S. Kemp wrote for Dragon.


You remember that they were considering making Age of Worms one adventure per level up to twenty.

Spoiler:
Or you've been doing some forum-archeology in your spare time.

James, how do you roleplay a paladin's immunity to fear effects? Does it mean he feels no fear at all?
That's exactly what it means. No fear at all. She understands the nature of a situation that causes fear, and will retreat from combat or a situation if it seems prudent, but not from fear.
Would you compare them to Green Lanterns then?
No, because all I really know about the Green Lantern is that it was a pretty terrible movie with a lot of silly-looking aliens in tights.

Kinda sounds a bit like Barbarella...

Congrats HD.


The Thousand Names by Django Wexler (named for the jazz-guitarist) is, so far, a good military fantasy romp which clips along at a very good pace - and as someone who read a ridiculous number of children's novels set during the Great Nordic War it's nice to see some muskets and X-pounders in action again. Could have done with some more humanisation of the Mujahedin-like antagonists, though.

Got a couple of chapters into PSS once and then put it down. Something about the writing style just didn't groove with me.

I like it, but it does occasionally suffer from "look at my great, big... vocabulary" syndrome.

Luckily that's disappeared in later books by him that I've read (without affecting his style noticably).


Good luck with the new job, Ebon.

And like you said - hope the supervisor has matured (it does happen quite often, actually).


At least I think it was St. Elmo they named it for - growing up in an atheist home in one of the most secularised formerly protestant countries in the world makes you a bit hazy on which saint is which.

Feel free to pass some of that along (the rain, not the grumpy GM).
My friend down south even had some green lightning on Friday. But I just got the regular stuff.

Like St. Elmo's Fire?
