Courage, dragon. The pups will endure.

I'm prepping for job 3 day 2

Did job 2 this morning. A couple hours of picking up day camp goers. Not much money, but every bit helps.

*sigh*

Even if I wanted meat, sadly it is not in the budget

Another fun-filled jam-packed (packing jam? Where do we get these colloquialisms?) day ahead.

Day three of trail mix snack experiment: I found that the local Whole Foods has a very nice selection of fruits and nuts for sale. I made up a mixture thus:

  • Goji berries
  • dried cherries
  • dried blueberries
  • dried cranberries
  • raisins
  • filberts
  • cashews
  • walnuts
  • almonds
  • pepitas
  • sunflower seeds (hulled)
  • basic granola

The mixture is tasty, although I am still getting used to the nuts. I am not a tree nut fan, but I am learning. I have to remember that this mixture is calorie dense (about 500 calories a cup) so moderation is key. I found yesterday that it did keep my hunger in check, and I was not tempted to snack while at school or on the drive home.

The final hour I am on the subway. No fears. Listening to books is what I do while driving and that is the same as listening to music

Experimenting with trail mixes. I need to acknowledge that I need a snack and prepare for it instead of denying the urge and ending up eating potato chips.

Plus I need good fats, like Omega 3 and ALA

Plus fat-heavy snacks seem to fill me longer rather than carb-rich ones


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

Rum is good
Vodka too
Tequila is nice

Not a fan of gin
Or whisky
Or basically anything in the brown liquor family

Fair enough!

Idk if it is very productive, but hey, reading...

I can maybe update my PbPs as well. Getting anything homework wise done on the T is kinda not going to happen

Holy cow, dude. That's dedication. I hope you can do something productive on the commute.

I dislike whiskies of all stripes. To many youthful follies


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

Sorry to hear about Shadow Treppa

So, back to school. 4 hour commute for a 1-1/4 hour class. I love being stubborn!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Oh and sorry about the joke spoiler in game. I plead the lateness of the hour and exhaustion making me silly.

Scotch is handy to have in case of alien invasion

A successful endeavor I would say!

I was a hardcore Vampire gamer and Storyteller. Still am here on the boards. :-)

Awesome! If you ever have a space id love to dust off my library and make a character


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

MWF should be lighter, thanks Treppa

Drejk, i am skirting even my tolerances. But, it is for one year, then I should be able to transition into a decent-paying 40-hour job. Anything can be accomplished if you have the will to succeed.


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

Thursday will be even worse. Add another class on top of that. I might have to give up my Thursday Krav Maga.


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

My Tuesday for example:

  • Work 12-8
  • Krav maga10-12
  • School (with commute) 1-6

I'm going to have to tighten up my sleep patterns come next week. New job and school!

It may be afternoon, but it's the crack O' dawn for me...*yawn*

You're on the path to revelation. And the identity does eventually get revealed, you just can't get it early.

I was unable to pledge the Kickstarter (grumble grumble rent, food grumble) but my financial situation should be much better when this opens up for retail sale. Could I ask you to please announce on this thread when that comes to fruition? I would be most grateful!

-Your whispering monkunculus


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Oh and just a bit of meta:

According to the story, our shadowy nemesis was literally erased from history. All thoughts, writings, knowledge, and pictures of [redacted] were literally stricken from the multiverse in an attempt to keep [redacted] from returning. That is why you don't find any mention of [redacted's] name anywhere. I have to walk a fine line, especially with y'all's quite impressive knowledge rolls. I had to give Justin something for that 37 he got, that's just crazy. But, even a 100 won't reveal [redacted's] name. It is just not available.

No worries. We've all been in this situation. All I ask is you let me know so I can adjust


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Well, I'll not spoil it for those who don't know. It's a fun adventure arc, and believe it or not we are only about half done with it ;)

I was amazed that Cape Breton was in the 15-25 C range while I was up there. As soon as I went back into Maine it was 30+ again.

*sigh*

I enjoy warmth, but not THAT much warmth. I don't even want to go outside.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Oh yeah. My eventual thought is to get you together into one or two groups. It would make my life a bit easier as well, lol.

Quite frankly I had expected more of a shakeout of players. So far no drop outs.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

It was a pretty big sub plot of the entire 2nd Edition AD&D milieu.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hey all!

Just want to say I'm excited by how the game is shaping up, and I hope you are all as well. I just want to reiterate that if you are waiting on me for anything, feel free to post it here. With all the separate lines of discussion going on, things can and do fall through the cracks. If you feel like you are stalled or not getting an action replied to feel free to mention it.

I also just want to clarify my stance on participation in the narrative a bit. I enjoy input from players. It's one reason I had you make the list of NPC allies/nemeses. I don't mind if you say you are looking for an ally, or going somewhere that person would be. I do draw the line at manufacturing scenes in the narrative. While I appreciate the enthusiasm, I do have to retain a bit of command and control. So rule of thumb is this:

I go to so-and-so's shop=OK

I go to so-and-so's shop, and they greet me and show me a widget=bad

I'm walking along and I see 'Widgets-R-us' and they have the widget I need in the window=also bad

Thank you all for participating in this experiment. If anyone has any comments or criticism thus far feel free to mention it here as well.

That's fine, or if you want to keep the versatile channeler feat I don't see a problem with that either. The rules are merely a framework after all

Just to let everyone know, I'm out of town on vacation today through the 2nd or 3rd. Shouldn't have much trouble posting (except the last day when I have an 11 hour drive home), but if I'm a little slow in responding, that's why :-).

Believe me I understand, LOL

Just returned from the vet. Thought we might be saying goodbye to The Shadow today, but he was walking much better (though gingerly) when we got to the vet. He's on a couple of pain meds and isn't showing signs of stroke or ear infections, and his vitals are good, so we'll see. He had hip surgery as a young dog and it may just be catching up with him.

He's still not perky and not cheerful and not eating, but maybe taking care of pain will help that. I dunno.

:( Sorry to hear that Treppa. It's never an easy time. I still miss my last pup I had to make that decision with. But they will let you know when the time is ready.

i swear. They come up with Viagra, but they can't make a metabolic booster. C'mon Phizer! You can do it!

Its a mildly entertaining show Seth McFarland's humor is hit or miss with me.

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

You've probably been infected by a 5th Dimensional parasite. They have to compress down to fit in our dimension, and so always add a s@~! ton of mass.

Glad your feeling better!

I've been coughing/hacking a lot lately as well FH, Of course in my case, it;s likely due to the interaction with all of the soggy garage contents, the mold,(WHITE mold? REALLY?!? Where does this #$%^ come from?!?!?) :/ The dust/mildew from the wall panels and baseboards, etc, etc.

I'm fairly certain that that gunk has settled in my sinuses and lungs, and is making me sick. I'm not hack-a-lung bad yet, but I feel it trying! :P

Ugh. Flooding. A bibliophile's worst nightmare...
