Thanks to all for the scimitar replacement suggestions, I am very appreciative of the links!

I actually know those types of blades. Still looking for the proper fit. And yes the sickle is definitely a Druidic in theme and fits but it's not a sword per se.

More digging for me.

Falx, or scythe-sword?

Not Celtic, but might fit...

What sword would you substitute for the Druid's scimitar?

I know the Druid has had this weapon since 1st ed AD&D, but the weapon is not even remotely historically linked to the Gaelic Druid.

Well, falcatas were used in Celtic Spain

Or the seax is (surprise!) Saxon/Germanic/Norse rather than Celtic, but I think it's pretty likely that the Celts would have had something similar.

Or just let 'em use longswords*

Or greatswords

* That's what they've traditionally been called in D&D. Not a longsword if you ask me, but luckily, nobody has!

Today's Plotting The Downfall of All You Hold Dear (or of All You Hold, Dear) was same old same old, only enlivened by one comrade seeing another's t-shirt with a slogan in Gaelic and saying brightly, 'Oh, is that in Russian?'

You know you're in love when your SO says "I'd like to see you in a kilt," and for the first time in your life wearing a kilt seems like a good idea. :)

Also, we are officially getting hitched on the 28th!

Congratulations! :)

Hope you're OK, Lynora!

Today, Limey is enjoying a pathetic amount of snow, and some schadenfreude.

I only have a passing interest; Limey's the devotee.

RadiantSophia, have you heard the new one (Do Not Disturb) yet?

Weyes Blood - Do You Need My Love?

It's something else!

Once and Future Band - Destroy Me

It sounds a lot like 10CC or ELO, which is OK.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Limey's Bin is capable of causing any bit of rubbish that isn't dropped directly into its capacious maw to veer off and land on the grotty carpet with a pathetic little splat, or crunch, depending on consistency. Thankfully, it has not developed the ability to hurl the objects in question back at its assailant, but this is only a matter of time.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That's three times I've missed the bin while trying to hurl the teabag in, at a distance of around 5-6 feet.

Three times. Pathetic.

I was born in the year Thatch-Ra came in, i.e. 1979. Personally, I'm having a better time now than I did in my teens and twenties, despite the state of the country in general; people younger than me are having a noticeably harder time of it, and I don't envy them.

If they could all learn to spell, things would be just about perfect.

EDIT: The cost of higher education seems to be lower in the UK compared to the US (although I doubt that'll last); I was one of the last people to get a (very small) grant, as opposed to having to rely wholly on loans, so I was definitely one of the lucky ones.

It was ace.

Then we went to the pub. Then, I went to a Goth club to watch my friend's techno/Black Metal band, but didn't stay past the end of his set.

Which band is this? Winterfylleth? I'm always interested in a bit of black metal :)

They're called Machine Wraith - they are on Bandcamp, apparently.

Yup.

In other news, my date with Madame Statistica went alright - she texted back when I sent her a message to say nice to meet you/safe journey home etc. anyway.

Having said that, I get the feeling there won't be a second date. We'll see.

Does anyone know if British social mores would typically find it acceptable to chuck an empty bottle of Irn Bru at the guy loudly playing American Christmas music on his phone in the hostel common room?

Plastic bottle or glass bottle?

Generally, the thing to do is to go up to the individual in question and say:

"Pardon me, old fruit, but if you don't stop with that f~++ing racket I will f#++ing well carve you up like a f!$&ing Christmas day turkey, you f*!#ing f@+*"

NB: Actually, don't do that. Seriously, don't. Just don't. Instead, stare at him in a suitably passive-aggressive way for about 10 minutes, then leave, tutting audibly. You'll fit right in.

EDIT: And it makes it all the more effective if you are NUUUUUDE.

What makes for a better global devastation.

1) Super Volcano eruption or eruptions.

2) Doomsday device

3) Apocalypse or deity war

4) Comet (because it's cliche)

5) Alien invasion, failed or otherwise

6) All the above.

Hello Mistress Rysky,

I have a question that is very NSFW. This is the only place I can think to ask it...I will put it in spoilers...

** spoiler omitted **

There's also the matter of What Comes Out of the real thing...

And the fact that it can vary in size, shape and firmness, depending on circumstances...

And the fact that, if a certain operation has not been performed, there will be additional moving parts...

I imagine it would be possible to imitate all those things, if you were sufficiently dedicated.

So, four kids currently here. I asked what kind of lunchmeat they all liked. 3 ham, one hard salami. So I get a pound of ham and half pound of hard salami (still a decent amount).

So far zero kids have had the ham. Which is more then cool with me, because now I have all the ham.

Pillars Of Eternity is very good crpg, though it has less replay value than strategy games. It still has some replay value as there are some choices to be made during the game.
I was thinking of picking this one up, is the character creator pretty good?

I thought I'd looove it; I liked making an elf who could do rapier & dagger, but I found it quite frustrating to play, as everything I ran into after a bit had some sort of killer DR that prevented my wizard pal and I from doing any damage to it. But that probably meant that I was doing it wrong...
