OK, Heading out to visit my family for the week of the 4th.
I'll try to check in, but will be pretty busy.

See you next week for sure!

Happy 4th of July to all!

I am in Massachusetts. I haven't rented here since the mid-nineties, but I did an entire three-bedroom house for $800 then. Now the same house would be $1800. I just don't get it. There isn't even any affordable housing off the shoreline. I've looked up and down-anything within a reasonable commute and.... Nothing.

I honestly don't understand how they expect people to live.

Yeah that sounds about right. :(

After 8 friggin' years working for the state (university job) I finally got a raise,...
Which is LESS than the newly-announced rise on the cost of our health insurance. So I actually just got a CUT in pay. :/

Which leads me back to my previous comment RE: 'exploring other options'
;P

Sounds like it might be better to look for a house to buy rather than rent! Of course then you still have to have down payment,... yaddayaddayadda,...

Argh! Frustrating me just thinking about it! Good luck dude!

That's OK. I have Mike Welham designing custom undead to throw at y'all :P

Wait,... you don't need help coming up with surprises in the first place! (Normally, I mean when your not time-strapped due to RL stuff) ;P

But your bringing in MW as your 'backup' monster maker?!?

I'm not only going to find time to finish updating the online PC sheet for Justin, I am seriously going to revisit his spell-combos! ;P

PLEASE stop giving the highly imaginative game master bad ideas! 8/

;)


They were pretty bad-@$$ in the books. Of course that didn't stop the heroes from cleaving them! ;P
But by then the heroes were pretty bad-@$$ too,...

ANNNND now I'm back to worrying again,... ;)


Well, it seems like there is a 'lot' going on that we haven't (quite) put all together yet. And with such a large gathering of NPC's it would be hard not to talk to yourself!

Not that there's anything wrong with talking to yourself, or arguing with yourself,... it's only when you LOSE an argument with yourself that it gets embarrassing. Trust me. ;P

I have faith you'll pull it out. Or let us do what heroes always do best, and get into trouble, ensuring that WE'LL have to figure a way out of it! :)


Lol! At least he slew the Phaerimm,...
(Never played against them in a game, but in the books they were pretty nasty!) ;P


LOL!
I'm with Treppa and Tilnar on this one. I understand the Failure of The Muse completely. (Not to mention RL in general) ;P

So I can happily deal with A, B or some combo thereof.
(Mmmm, Combo Platter,... Sorry, lunchtime,) ;)

I second Treppa, The bottom half of the list sucks. ;P

Heh, I recently played in an ongoing campaign at a local Anime Convention (Star Wars combo of D20 and minis scenarios) The overarching campaign took 6 years, with a new scenario/time advance each convention. (We covered almost all the time zones of Star Wars, from Pre-Ep 1 through the Yuzaan Vong books.)

Our battle cry by the end of the last year?

"Spend Every Force Point! Go Big or Go Home!"

I think you get my vote,... ;)


LOL!
Wait,...

<Looks over PC's shoulder nervously>

;)


Oh I hear you!

I don't have any pets, (currently, with my EX it was a completely different situation,... Boring details another time.) :)

When we (present family) moved back to Lousy-anna after Katrina, we first moved into a 2 bedroom apartment, (kids were much smaller 8 years ago) now there are cheaper ones in town, but the fact is I am now buying a house for less than my rent was. And I'm INCLUDING the Escrow payment. :/

I don't know about your area Pat, (I forget, where ARE you currently?!? Dang middle-age memory) But perhaps you might try looking at rental property instead of apartments? Houses, duplexes, 'apartments' that are 2 to 5 units in one converted house? Those might be more amenable to allowing your pets, (with deposit I'm sure)
I mean, it's moving back into a college-age-type situation, but my ex always managed to find us places that allowed pets. Shoot, at one point I was renting a 3 bedroom house for less than most small apartments.
That was in a college town, and over 25 years ago,... (Almost 30?!? Time does fly) but it did happen! :)

Heck maybe you could just go 'Patrick Jayne' (The Mentalist TV show) and just buy your own mobile home/camper/trailer. It's yours, and if you don't like the neighborhood, you can just move! No packing required!
I'm (mostly) joking, but some people like that sort of thing. :)

Me, I'm a packrat from an EARLY age. I've always had too much STUFF. :P

I'm glad the job is off to a good start, Good luck on everything.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,


Lol, yeah, no appraise skill for Justin either. :)

I considered it at generation, but decided the wizard had better things to do than stare at rocks and jewelry. ;P

That said, (and thanks for the freebie Pat!) :)
I'm guessing that appraising a gem would be a 'not bad consequence' things, so would allow a Take 10 or 20? So a take 20 plus maybe a aid another or two would (eventually) get us in the ballpark of figuring out it's worth.
Eventually. ;P
I mean, I wouldn't want to try it in the middle of combat or anything,... :)

Patrick wrote:
I don't think anyone has appraisal skills (unless Hamar does), but ill give you a freebie: the gem is 1,000 GP. Sadly, powdering it will give you 1,000 GP in diamond dust. However, this is something good to have in reserve, since level draining will become more of a standard attack in your CR level.

Does THIS part make anyone else nervous?,... :)

I have rarely gotten to play anything past mid-levels. I forget were playing with the BIG CR's now! ;P


Oh my gosh, all of my favorite things! ;P (Just kidding. Obviously) :/
(Yeah, it was funnier in my head. Shoulda kept it there.) ;P

Seems like your getting all of those old-magazine 'most stressful things that can happen' articles at once! :(

Best wishes and prayers for you my online friend.

When time allows, tell us about the new job! :)
I'm curious, and after 8 years of working for the state, (college job) I'm seriously re-considering the possibility of 're-exploring other options'. ;)

Good luck,


Sounds good SS, have fun!

I myself will be traveling to New Orleans for Father's Day weekend,
(Or in this case, Father-in-law day weekend?) ;P

Hope everyone gets to enjoy grillin' and chillin' this weekend! :D

Huh? Whuzzat? HOW many Friggin' posts since last time?!?!

Nnnnnnnn,... Nevermind. I'll catch up later,....

MUCH later,...

<Waves as he stumbles out of thread to get coffee>


Sounds good Monkey!

:)
So, hows the new job?

(You did get a new job, yes? Or am I confusing my online friends. Again.) ;P


'The Kindling', I like that name! :)

Beats the pants off of 'Evil Pinocchios"

;P

G'luck Limey!

Just stay away from the REDheads.

Just,... take my word for it,... ;P

EDIT- Not because I'm anti-redhead. Far from it. THAT was my problem in a previous/former life. ;)


OK, Just having fun with Justin, but it sounded good while I was typing it. ;P

Now how to do something even remotely similar to what Justin just described in game?

I have a thought, tell me if this works.

We scribe an actual circle around the existing circle, (The game books all refer to these, but never actually explain how to do so in game terms) I presume that Merle and Justin would have to succeed at a moderate DC Spellcraft check to get it right. ;P

We empower the circle with spells like Prot vs Evil, etc.
Presume ANOTHER spellcraft roll to properly attune Justin's Amulet as a key, allowing whoever is wearing it to pass through the circle without 'breaking' it.

This is 'Reasonable' justification, if you consider that previous versions of Prot/Evil actually had a 'non-mobile, physical circle' version (Which I realized I was thinking about when I came up with this. Current version is only the cast-on-person version)

EDIT- OK, researching, NOW the written version is called 'Magic Circle against Evil' and is a 3rd level spell. So, 'legally' we would use THAT spell, and it's description pretty much says what I was describing. (With a little artistic license, and Without a 'key' option) :)

OK, honestly, I DO have a (mostly complete) updated sheet of Justin at home, but I'm pretty sure that his shopping list did not include THAT spell. BUT, Ekuur can pray for it! So, this plan might actually work, (I mean as in by-the-rules!) :)

OK, go ahead, dog-pile on the wizard for being crazy. He has it coming,... ;P

Man, I spend WAY too much time thinking about stuff like this. I'm going to go do another read-through of my Addams script before the dance show now,... :)


RL will try to interfere, but PbP for the win! ;)

No worries Pat, we'll see you soon!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Okay,
Color me hopeless, but I cannot find these listed on the Drive Thru RPG website.

Was there an actual link to the print on demand posted and I missed it?

Sorry, old mage + new tech apparently doesn't always mesh right! ;P

EDIT- NM, Went to Drive Thru CARDS, and it was at the top of the page!

Old wizard may be slow, but he CAN be taught! ;)


Lol!

And I thought I was out of it lately! ;P


Thanks Pat!

Looking forward to it. It looks like a LOT of fun.

Currently my Anticipation is higher than my worried-ness.

Let's hope that ratio stays the same,... ;P


No problem. I'll just keep thanking you for letting me play! :)

As I might have mentioned before, I think we're past the point of you having to worry about whether or not we'll hang around and wait. ;P

Hope that 'busy' = 'getting better' for you!

Speaking of busy, :)
I managed to get cast in a local community theater production of The Addams Family Musical this summer. As Gomez. :/

So yeah, won't be playing much video games this summer. (Not that I ever get too!) I have a LOT of memorizing to do. :) Least it's a happy busy! (Unlike most of our usual work/jobs I'm sure) ;)

My kids last day of school was today. They are now out for the summer.
And the neighborhood trembled in fear,... ;)

See ya all soon!


Ditto on the getting better wishes!

I think we're past the point of worrying about whether or not we'll wait.

;P

Take care sir, hope to see you sooner rather than later.

As a side note, I managed to get cast in a local community theaters production of The Addams Family Musical. As Gomez. :/

I actually have something productive to do now between posting PbP's and playing video games. (Like I get to play games!) I have a LOT of memorizing to do! Only 2 months to go,.... ;)


Hey all,

Just wanted to say Happy Holiday to those who got one!

(I had to go to work and tech another dance show. But they wanted out too, so I got to come home and grill!) :)

Hope the new job is going well Pat.

Hope to see everyone (In the game thread) soon! :)

Day off?
What day off?

I had to go and tech (yet another) dance show today.
The good news is, they wanted to get out too. So I got to go home and grill some de-lic-ious burgers. :)

And drink Hard Cider.

Considering smoking my pipe tonight. (I don't like smoking. But there is something relaxing about puffing on a Gandalf-pipe.) ;P

Happy Holiday to those who got one!

Also, congrats on the part, Rags!

Thanks much. :)

Very excited about it.

Also, be lying if I didn't admit just a little nervous.

Ah who am I kidding? I always said I was good enough to be a lead. Time to put my money where my mouth is! ;)

If only there was a way I could do it while sitting on the couch catching up on all of my DVR'd shows from this season,...
;P

Well, I'll be getting at least a little bit of exercise this summer.
Just logged in to tell my online peeps that I auditioned for a musical this summer. 'The Addams Family'. Didn't really expect to get anything. Was really hoping my daughter would get the part of 'Wednesday'.

Yeah, I got the part of Gomez. :/

NOW to figure out how to re-arrange my work schedule so that I can actually make rehearsals. Cuz there is NO way I am turning this part down! :)

With my skills, I could maybe get the part of the hand in the box

Honestly, I figured that was the part they would offer me! ;P

I just wish you a GOOD busy,

See you when you escape teh busy-ness! ;P

Heh, missing out for a few days (or a few weeks) and trying to figure out where you are in the current running gag is half the fun! :)

At least for me? ;P

<waves to all in thread, then goes back to run opening night of Mary Poppins>


lol, I hate texting. I can't imagine posting from my phone.

I mean, I've tested going to the paizo webpage when I first got a phone that could do so. But just trying to read the web page gave me a headache. ;P

I'll wait. Post from your laptop. It's good. :)


Dude, good luck. Again. ;)

Best wishes as always. I hope that the new job is a good start to things turning back your way. :)

Speaking of best laid plans of mice and Ken,... ;P


OK, Safe journeys! ;)

I am in the middle of another week-long rental (Production of Mary Poppins the musical) It should be fun, but as I have all of the usual nonsense PLUS a flying system, I'll be busy too. THEN launching into the usual end-of-school/summer dance show Hot Mess.

Hope to check in once a day, but I probably won't be writing any novel-length posts for a while.

Why do I suddenly hear cheering?!?,... ;P

I'll take your word for it, while I'd love to go to Italy, I've never been there, I'm very much inclined to believe you, I used to work with this super awesome lady that was a model in Italy during the 70s, she had some cool stories:-)

Oh I'll bet she did! ;P

My wife's grandparents were from italy. Her grandad actually remembered riding over on the boat to get away from Mussolini. (He was like, 2)

My mother in law spent years trying to find the family home that got left behind when they fled. HAd a dream about reclaiming it. She finally found it. Saw a picture of it in a newspaper article about a famous couple who bought an Italian villa as a (3rd? 4th? 5th?) home.

Spoiler:
It was bought by Bradgelina.

And no I'm not kidding. ;P
