*pant*

whoo! PbPs updated!!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I should have discussed it before posting, but I had figured you folks would want to get to the action quicker. If you want, I can retcon, and you can have some more time to build the relationships between your characters. I just figured you'd want to get to the 'action' as it were....

Hopefully, it will be a welcome surprise.

I got it. Très cool! Are you posting it? Feel free to if you need my OK.

Thanks!

It's exclusive for your use for 3 months, and then I'll post it. If you want it out in the wider world earlier, I will definitely do that.

Let the little beauties free! I'm not writing any scenarios soon

Well, slept at a regular time in my own bed, walked an hour in the forest with my puppy, cooked chicken and veg spicy stir fry, went shopping, and made it to the gym.

Yesterday was a very good day.

Yeah. It will. I'm praying it's a soft transition rather than a hard one. You know, with wars and revolutions and stuff.

But, I recall 1848....

Anyway, veering into politics. Time to knock that sh!t off.

Anyone had an interesting game idea?

I'll go:

If you wanted to run a Scooby Doo gang, how would you do it? And with what gaming platform?

I think it would be interesting to do a haunted ship type of game in the upcoming Starfinder platform, a la Event Horizon .

There's a lot of 'Urban Magical' books out there. What would be a good RPG platform? Has anyone spent any time with the Harry Dresden RPG? Does it work well in this area?

Yeah, our work situation is absolutely crazy. It's not going to get any better because automation will take more and more jobs. There simply aren't enough and companies don't want to pay living wages for the jobs that exist.

Our economy is fundamentally changing and we need a new model before there's a revolution.

It's funny, I was reading a short story from a 'mega pack' Amazon offers for the Kindle (basically repackaged SF Golden Age tales from various magazines for .99), and this one was set in the 'Ultra-Welfare State' where the second industrial revolution has automated everything and there was a 'job draft' to lottery off the few remaining jobs (only 1 in a 100 people needed to work). Everyone else had a guaranteed basic income.

Hit close to the mark for 1963....

I'm actually quite surprised as there is a dearth of electricians here. Is it your locale?

How are the prospects in becoming an independent contractor? Is that possible? I mean, working residential and small business. I don't know if that takes another set of certs or not.

That's worrying. When people don't feel hope, then bad things begin to happen.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah, another scary thing I see is the experience needed angle. Plus what entry-level paralegals seem to make. I mean, how do people survive these days?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Happy birthday Treppa!

I feel your angst. Being in school and seeing all the Bright Young Things who will be competing for the same job as I will this summer makes me very nervous. Still, I pray someone will look for experience over youth. Else I shall be working 16-hours a day for the rest of my life :/

Still, age is but a number! May we all come to the place we desire this year, safe, happy, and employed.

And please, great Spahetti Monster, not too many more 19-hour days????

Ugh. Nothing worse than a long shift that rolls straight into ANOTHER long shift.

Lord have mercy I will welcome my bed this morning


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

That would likely be for the best. PvP could work if the terms were agreed to in OOC beforehand. I just don't want any surprise back stabblings. Those breed bad feelings


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I agree with pretty much everything you said Mothy. There is obviously a lot of credulity stretching to make this concept work. Especially when the whole 'my character is evil' thing can account for a lot of sins.

Just like the movie, I think that dark humor is more the trope we should be aiming for, not the 'reality' of trying to kill each other off. As Mothy said, PvP usually ends up sucking and with hard feelings.

Treppa was kind enough to go along with being the handler for you all, and we will soon transition to a place where there will be plenty of bad things to fight. Let's try to herd our little cluster of cats along with more verbal rather than physical duels and I think everyone will have a better time.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Well, this game can suit itself to covert machinations, but anything overt will likely be squashed by Chandi. An assist a minute late, a misplaced blow, all good stuff. An actual brawl will likely end up with unconscious participants


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yup. I need a dental appointment now that I have insurance again.

Also, happy belated first anniversary Treeforters! 11K in a year might not be FaWTL level, but I think it is fairly respectable

It's coming up on the one year mark for me- Dad passed away st. Patrick's day last year.

His first name was Patrick.

Some days I still expect to see him on his fav spot in front of the TV, catching the latest from BNN. He was an avid day trader after he retired and loved playing the market. It often seems so surreal how normal the world looks without him. I mean- Dad's GONE! Shouldn't the world have changed more?

A year is a tough anniversary. My dad's been gone for nine now. I am glad to be past the point of suddenly and randomly breaking down in tears, even in public. That tapered off after the first 2-3 years. But yeah, how does the world keep turning?

I always try to keep in mind the wisdom of Clarence from It's a Wonderful Life: Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Oh and I93 to Melnea Cass to Malcom X mid afternoon in a 40' bus? I don't particularly recommend it.

That celtic punk rock is great thing to listen. I might not understand a lot but it still sounds good.

Don't feel bad. I live near Boston and I only get about 50% of it. They are truly a world of their own there

Sorry bout the choking issue, I wasn't very clear on the amount of time we were being choked by the collars and such. I have a high con so I can hold my breath long enough that some members would possibly choke to death before I necessarily passed out. You can assume that I did pass out if it's what you wanted to have happen.

The collars are a necessary McGuffin to get the party to work together without erupting into homicide or trying to escape. Thus, assume the collar will strangle you until you pass out then relax. This isn't a rule thing per se

In fact North Quincy is where my Tatar lawyer friend dwells. Although not ethnically 'Russian' she does hail from Russia.

I don't think there are any Irish left in Quincy.
Well I'll be here the next 2 days :-)

Work related I'm assuming?

It's interesting to see the slow tide of immigration occur. Quincy, once a hotbed of Yankee revolutionary fervor, slowly transitioning into the Irish in the 19th Century, then the Italians, then the East Europeans, and now Russians and Chinese.

February is a cruel month for the psyche. I have been battling a lot of down thoughts myself these past few weeks. Some situation-based, some I'm sure due to SAD.

Hang in there. Spring is near. There is an entire gorgeous, mysterious, fantastic planet out there to experience. What comes after comes for us all in its time. No sense in rushing it.

All we get is now, and it's up to us to make it good.

Meh. We're catching up to you on the weed angle. Heck it's (technically) legal in my home state now. Though they are dragging their feet about allowing venues to sell it.

Stroopwafels on the other hand, we are a virgin territory. I Googled them and they do look delicious
