Also, back from a nice stay in Portugal (pics are forthcoming).

And: Happy Birthday Freehold DM.


Give Sabine my sympathies, aeglos.


And the car boot should double as their warehouse.


In Turkey, a turkey is called "hindi"


Next stop Lisbon.

No free WiFi at the hotel, unfortunately.


And is there a one-legged divine sea-captain in eternal pursuit of it?


Ben Kingsley for me.


Despite the current king of Sweden being Karl XVI, he's just the tenth Swedish king to be called Karl.

William Parry is the only member of the lower house of the UK parliament ever to have been executed for high treason.

I'm guessing the number for the English parliament is slightly higher. Or did Charles II use a different classification once he started to get even, following the Restoration?


Herne is a town in Germany.

Oldenburg are two towns in Germany.

As are Frankfurt and Frankfurt.

For me, it's slightly different for modern mystery stories, insofar as stuff like cell phones, DNA forensics, and GPS/satellite surveillance tend to make a difference in how things "should" play out.

When Dumas tells you that Edmund Dantes' father met with Napoleon in 1814, you don't envision him carrying an i-phone. But when MacDonald tells you, "Just yesterday, I was thinking how much I hate what's happening in Florida lately," it's a little different.

P.S. Love Dumas! I read TCoMC, unabridged, in two nights.

Heh. Guess it helps if you're like me and, to the consternation of a lot of my friends and family, regularly leavd the phone at home - cause if I'm going shopping or sightseeing, or something, why would I want to talk on the phone or surf the web?

Also- Three Musketeers in one sitting which ended with a flashlight under the blanket because my parents kept telling me to turn off the light and go to sleep (I was eight).


Now if it were from 1969, though. ;)


Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel.

And as someone whose favourite novel of all time is The Count of Monte Cristo I'm somewhat befuddled at the idea that it's surprising that a book from 1966 holds up.

Five golden rings!


As for the initial reason for the rule.

I'm guessing ignorance and fear of something they couldn't understand.

Also, it should be noted that until very recently, the law required anyone who juridically transitioned should be sterilized (even if there where no medical issues with them getting kids) and any saved eggs/sperm be destroyed

:O

That's an absolute abomination. What was the medical or ethical rationale used to even vaguely attempt to rationalize that? That's horrific. :(

Basically, I think, it was down to their not being any transfolk in the legislative who could point out that the law was horribly out of date.

I base this on the fact that when this finally came into the public discourse here a few years back, the most common reaction I saw from politicians that weren't part of the social conservative Christian Democrats or the fascist Sweden Democrats could be boiled down to "What!? That's a ...weird rule..."


Some ways into the future, location unimportant as long as it's quick and unexpected.

Damn cheaters.

I didn't say they were effective grenade-launchers. (For one thing, the grenades still needed a fuse to be lit before they were launched.)

Erastil and his CG counterpart Cerunnos are both vaguely Celtic gods.

Torag would feel at home in the Norse (and pre-Chfistian Germanic) pantheon.

3-1/2 hoyrs until I go outside for work, and the noise I hear from there right now is: WOOSH smatter-smatter-smatter beep-beep... Er... The last bit was my egg-timer.

Ah yes the magic of the holiday season, nothing like watching your 2 nephews going at each other with cardboard tube swords

Except hitting your brothers with a cardboard sword to remind them who's the first-born in this family. ;)


Tomorrow's bathtub read will be the Swedish translation of Le Petit Bijoux by this year's Nobel Prize winner, Patrick Modiano. It's only 128 pages, in a fairly large font, so if I use warm enough water it should be enough with one bath.


I asked James Sutter about it a few days ago, and he said it's due to a combination of shifting the editor in charge of it and Paizo hitting a crunch time, but it will be back after the new year.


Also Prince of Wolves by Dave Gross in the novel line.

WTF!? Thunder? In December?

Time to repair that weather dominator, Freehold.


Congratulations CH.


That's the one. ( I was away from my binder with all the web fiction printed out at the time of posting. Well, binders as of two months ago - there've been a few.)

I only have one missing piece: Pazuzu.

Easily fixed. Just say his name three times after each other.


On the plus side - I've finished the morning's 3 hours of paper delivery in sleet and strong winds (stay indoors if you're in Norway, says the Norwegian authorities), and is lieing in bed with a cup of hot tea.

On the downside - in 15 minutes I have to go out and start a (hopefully just) 5-hour shift.

Say one thing for Treebeard. Say that his bark is much worse than his bite.

Paizo's own Sissyl was once on the final of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?', playing against the cricketer Ian Botham. It was the very last round and the contestants were neck and neck. Ian had got his last question wrong - now it was Sissyl's turn. £1m was riding on her answer!

'Sissyl' , asked Chris Tarrant, 'Which lager refreshes the parts that others cannot reach?'

Sissyl looked stumped -Ian looked smug. He knew the answer! Then, Sissyl asked to phone a friend - and called the Boneyard!

"HELLO, SISSYL"

'Hello, Pharasma. Can you tell me

YES. THE ANSWER IS HEINEKEN"

Pharasma was correct! The crowd cheered wildly, Cricketer Botham looked furious, and Sissyl laughed delightedly and told him,

** spoiler omitted **

The only thing that breaks my immersion is the idea that people would be refreshed by drinking Heineken. Or that people would willingly drink Heineken.

Also that us Swedes don't pronounce Y:s like that (yet).


Well, looks like I won't have to bother voting for death's Heretic, then :p

Although, if we do go with that, might I suggest we start with the short story set just before the book begins? (Available in web format, and ePub here at Paizo, and in audio format over at Starship Sofa.)


And while Modiano has won several literary awards, when a movie he wrote was nominated for an Acsdemy Award as best foreign film, it lost out to Federico Fellini's Amarcord


This year's Nobel Prize fir Literature winner, Patrick Modiano's, father spent the years of Nazi occupation of France as a Black Marketeer with a false identity. (The false identity was kinda important, since he was Jewish.)

Doctor's appointment #1 of 2 this week: no pneumonia this time, but I've apparently dropped 15-20 pounds in the last three months, which is cool, I guess.

So far, so good.

I've been steadily losing interest in Golarion as a campaign setting.

Some of the recent threads around here haven't helped much with that, to say the least.

There's a lot of cool things in Golarion, but it's always been a thing to cobble stuff out of more than a setting to play in, for me.

I have already seriously altered golarion.

In my opinion, Golarion starts with kingmaker and the PCS making their own kingdom, and moving on from there.

I get bored by horror, so I've turned Ustalav into an 30-Years-War era Ustalav expy instead. (With Molthune as the Spanish, Kyonin as the French, and no Swedes.)
Wouldn't it, without Swedes, turn into something more like Ten-Years-War? Maybe Fifteen-Years-War at best?

Probably. Although the Danes made an attempt at intervening before the Swedes stuck their oars in rather more successfully (due to having practiced by beating up Poles first. ;) )


Considering that the map in my copy wasn't stapled, it's possible you were just the victim of a mistake by the printer.

Jokes aside, I haven't played an AP word for word in a while.
I never have, I always end up changing something about the plot and the characters involved.

I don't think you're supposed to run the APs completely as written - they're there as a very elaborate starting point, but the GM will always know the needs and sensibilities of his or her group better than the adventure writers.

Here.


Some thoughts my way on Thursday morning might be nice - at the moment they're predicting wind with the strongest gusts reaching hurricane strength.

At least I won't have to cross any bridges.

Are we going to get any word from the designers regarding what they learned from the playtest, and potential changes/directions for these classes in the final product ?

Yes. In the form of a big book.
