But Cider is SWEET!

Literally, in most cases,... ;)


Ice tea is good. I'll second that.

If I can do the old brisk tea commercials, where the person dived into a pool of tea, even better. :D


Blecch. It's 90's F down south in Lousy-anna, add recouping and having grown a beard to do a play (WHAT possessed me to grow a beard in Lousy-Anna in July, I will NEVER know!) and humidity, it Feels like 100+ F.

Blecch I say. Blecch. ;P


YAY!
See you soon!
:)


Wow.

And I thought Beavis and Butthead were annoying.

Oh, wait, they were. :/


The series compels you, THE SERIES COMPELS YOU!
;)

Glad to hear your issues have been resolved Pat, Hope it was satisfactorily.

See you all soon! :)

Really, Vatters? After all those years in school you can't even spell "munch"? Instead of writing an evocative description of a tense fight, you come up with dogespeak? "Wow. Much gulp"?

I'll show myself out.

I don't know which I enjoyed more. The 'Much Gulp', or your own self-recriminations.

I love this group. Truly. :)


Oh absolutely!

But only if you have pics. Otherwise it never happened. ;)

Glad to see you back! I've enjoyed and survived my mini-vacate, and my surgery. (Still recovering, but much better now) We had a bomb scare on campus (fake thank goodness) so yeah,... been busy. ;P


Good Job Heathy! Excellent! ;)


ROFLMAO!

Now THAT'S how you take a test!

;)

We all seem to be making up names to call Poppy Patient Zero behind her back. That one's farther afield than most, though.

Heh, yeah, well, Danny is a left field kind of guy. :)

AND, I'm on pain meds and couldn't be bothered to go back a page to look up the last nickname. So sue me.
;P

It's Tuesday. Worse yet, it's shaping up to be one of THOSE Tuesdays. I have too much homework to finish to be able to escape the house and avoid the drama.

Here's to holding tempers, holding tongues, and speaking calmly when needed.

Good luck! I hate drama.

Cool Heathy! G'luck!

I also have a MAster's Degree.

Unfortunately, it is in Theater. :(
Not the best-rewarded of fields at the best of times. Which this ain't.
;P

You'd THINK that a guy who spent almost as much time in school as a medical Doctor learning his field/craft would be able to make at least as much working IN his field as a first year school teacher?

Wouldn't you? ;P


yes. That is true.
:)


Wow, yeah that would make me kinda p!$$y too. ;P

Sorry they hosed you Pat, I hope it gets worked out.
It seems like they usually do pretty well working out issues, (at least the few I've had) I'm hoping that this is just a glitch and they will get it worked out. Surely you can't be the ONLY one who got messed up on this KS deal?

Well, as I mentioned on the other thread, I wouldn't be against your game(s) moving to another thread to continue the game, but pretty much the only reason I have to look elsewhere is to keep playing with you guys. :)

You let us know what you decide Pat, and we'll go from there.

Just remember, I'm grateful that you allowed me to join your merry game(s), No matter what happens, I've had fun! And I am thankful for your online friendship. :)

Happy weekend all,


I know, right?!?

It's amazing how much you do NOT realize how much you use something, until you can't!

At least this one was a LOT smaller than the last time. (Repair belly button vs go in and remove kidney tumor) But takes almost as much healing time.
Huh, I don't understand my body as well as I thought I did, I guess. ;P

Thanks all, I'll be back to my usual insanity soon, I'm sure. :)


Sucks a lot less than the last one!
(Thank goodness!) :)

Thanks,


Wow. I'm not sure what happened, but it obviously wasn't good.

Sorry they obviously failed you Pat.

I Personally would love to keep this game going. I'm having fun. If that meant following you to another board I wouldn't be against it. I'm just so limited on my personal time that I didn't even know there were other boards out there doing Pbp's! :)

(Yes. I really need to get out more.) ;P

Well, my mother always said to think about it first. (I'm a bit temperamental. My snap decisions are usually not my best ones) ;)

Seriously, take your time Pat. Whatever you decide, whether this game keeps going here, somewhere else, or retires, after all we have seen and been through (digitally) together, I hope we can remain text/email/etc friends. You and few others on this board are my best friends since my few college friends. :)

Have a good weekend all,


Recovering pretty good. As long as the pain pills are kicked in. ;P

Will post as able. Should be fairly regularly now.

My hardest part will be when I am feeling better and go back to work. I have to remember NOT to do ANYthing for 6 six weeks.

I did not enjoy this so much that I care to repeat the experience. ;P

(Sigh) If I NEVER have another surgery, it will be too soon! ;)

Wow. That does sound epic!
And awesome-er than the usual movie drek we get lately.
They should make THAT into a movie! :)
(Complete with all of the gamer-side-quips that undoubtedly happened)
:)


Oooh Paizocon!

Tell stories! Tell stories!

:)

BTW, I'm back now. Until my (minor?) surgery on Wednesday. ;P

(IS there such a thing as a 'Minor' creation and stitching of a hole in your tummy?!?) ;P


Still on vacate.
Posting as able.

Happy 4th everyone!


Thank you all! :)

Still on vacate, posting as able.

Just FYI,

I will be out of town for over a week. And then going to have another (minor) surgery the week after.

Thanks! And have a great week!

Nice way to trap an Efreeti, kudos. :)

Well, It all depends upon the DM of course. But being old school, (OLD school, before there numbers behind the 'D&D' symbol) my group has always presumed, despite specific wordings of various versions of the spell, that a 'Magic Circle' would hold any creature from another plane that was put into it. Period.

For PF, think of it this way 'Magic Circle' is a spell, with a limited duration. Follow the rules as written for simplicity.

A Magic Circle is a circle of runes of power drawn or inscribed into a flat surface, usually the floor, and (once activated) is inviolate against creatures from another dimension unless the person who made it made a serious mistake drawing it, (Use Spellcraft and K:Arcana with suitably high DC to make sure they drew it correctly) or makes the bigger mistake of breaking the circle while the creature is inside.

(This is a combination of comments from early editions of the game, and data from current popular novels involving such things) :)

If the characters WANT to interact with the Efreeti, knowing that they will use the smallest misspoken word against them, then as a player AND a GM I would allow it. Simply find a way to do so that fits the rules, if you are a stickler, or use (game) logic to do so. Similar to how we use the Item creation rules to use spells and Create Wondrous Item to do things that the spell itself could never do. :)

You could do as an earlier poster suggested, and create a Wondrous Item to hold a summoned creature wile you engage their services.

-Spend a LOT of GP creating a Brass circle, line said circle with magic symbols of power shaped from gold and silver, install permanently into the floor of your 'magic room' using spells like Planar binding, Magic Circle and permanence to power it. If you are a summoner it could be a very useful item for both this specific situation and RP'ing.

Or ANOTHER option, enter into a contract with the genie, instead of extracting a wish. (Still dangerous, but MUCH safer) Get them to agree to guard your home base, castle, etc, for a period of time. (Say, 1-200 years or so, not much time to an Efreeti) They stay as a statue during this time when not needed. Once their contract is up they go home.

Of course, you STILL have to presume that they will find a way around any 'non-retaliation' clause you put in the contract, but this gives you a great guardian, and 100 years or so to figure out how to defend yourself against the Efreeti when it is released. :)

Just my 2 cp. Whatever you decide to do with them, (extract wishes or garden gnomes) have fun! :)

Addendum, If I recall I think one of the bad guys in the series found a way to channel the sunlight into another series of crystals, effectively creating a laser cannon.

The brothers Hildebrandt actually wrote one book, Urshurak. In that world the Amazons could channel their latent psychic abilities into moving their (waterbound) ships, and the lightning cannons mounted on them. That was about the extent of it, but it was tech the other races did not have.

That, and I keep unconsciously making characters very similar to other characters from fiction.

I do not consider that to be a bad thing. (Unless your making yet another Drizzt clone) ;P

We all get our inspiration from somewhere, mostly movies and books for me. Heck I got into RP'ing because I WANTED to play characters from TV, books and movies!

Heck, I'm cribbing the heck out of every actor whose ever played Sherlock Holmes in another thread right now. :)

Just found this thread, have not read all the pages yet. So if this has already been mentioned my apologies.

Terry Brooks Shannara setting, in one or two sets of books there were flying airships. These were powered by 'magic crystals' for lack of a better term. When mined and shaped properly, they would catch daylight and channel magical energy into specially built sails and wings that gave the ships lift and maneuverability.

The advantages were that anyone could build flying airships once they gained the knowledge of how to cut the crystals and harness the channeled energy. The Disadvantages were they could only fly during the day (I believe, it has been a long time since I read that series) and they were very fragile. Most ships were small, light and maneuverable. But once the wings were hit they were down. The warships made in the series were very large and heavy, and very slow due to the amount of armor they had to carry to keep it from being shot down.

I always liked those ships. I never have gotten around to statting them up in a game though.


Yeah, I understand. No matter how hard I try to make something 'different', I really do like playing a certain type of PC. And after a bit, no matter what class I'm playing, they start all looking VERY similar,... ;P


Hey Shiny!
I didn't recognize your 'real person' name avatar! ;P

I have a hard time believing you 'made' a boring PC.

Or maybe that IS the pc's cool catch? He/she's boring? Like an adventuring Ben Stein?!? ;)

Nice to see you again! C'mon, jump in, the PbP's fine! ;P


We're here, we're gone, we're back!

Then we're gone again, with no trace of our passing,...

We're like, Ninja PbP'ers! :)

Not sure if a thread for this already exists, sorry if it does.

I just received a 'flood' of emails, all duplicates, across almost half of my PbP profiles.

They were from a 'capt Greg 903' and they all said the same thing, He is (supposedly) an American soldier in Afghanistan, that it was imperative that I contact him immediately, and not to reply through the Paizo website for security purposes.
:(

Funny thing is, of all the profiles this person emailed, none were my 'primary' account name. So obviously my brain screamed 'FAKE!'.

I of course deleted all of them immediately, silly me, next time I'll just click the 'block sender' button you have been so gracious to provide.
:)

I just wanted to make sure you knew that someone(s) was/are sending obvious Spam mails through the website now.

Thank you!
Have a great week!

Actually, GREAT idea Leik.

In hindsight, we probably should have led with that. ;P

Hopefully my Gandalf impersonation will help clear a few out. And maybe the smoke bomb will clear a lot! :D
