Ragadolf, my longest running PC in a D&D style game (We were using Hero System rules) He was an old, cranky, insane and memory-challenged wizard who tended to speak of things that the other PC's had never heard of. (Particularly bad Movie and TV references, Based on Zifnab of the Seventh Gate Cycle Series) The name was a combination of Radagast and Gandolf. He became my favorite PC, and Now I use the name for all of my gaming-related PC/online stuff. I have never found it used by anyone else. :)

The avatar was rather how I envisioned him, so I chose it.

Something about me- I am living proof that Old Nerds/Geeks never die, we just keep hanging around playing games, pretending that we're still 20. ;P

Nope.

The newest Hercules Movie starring Dwayne Johnson.

As I said before (And I'll be glad to type it again!)

As long as you're ok, all the rest is good. :)

And you my internet friend, are a master if the understatement.
I've done the whole 'rebuilding my life' thing. 'Never easy' is at least the understatement of the Decade! ;P

Best wishes, we'll be here. :)


Hey Pat, iz all good. ;)

As long as you're ok, the rest will be fine.

See you soon,


I think you're good SS.

;)

Have a good trip!

I will be out for most of the next 2 weekends, my daughter is going to Space Camp, and I have to drive there and back to drop her off and pick her back up. :/

So, business as usual then? ;)


Sweet!

Gratz Pat, see you soon!

Quick update: Internet service will resume for me Tuesday, hopefully. I will be updating then.

Woo-hoo!

Gratz Pat, Nothing says 'new house' like that 'New Internet Service smell'.

:)

Oh, wait, that smell was the installer,... Nevermind,... ;P

This happened this week, actually.

A greater Shadow attacked the party while they were asleep, only one person had knowledge Religion, and failed to identify it, so they began referring to the creature as "The Darkness".

The sorcerer, having just gotten all his spells back, was very excited about the combat, and shouted "I CAST MAGIC MISSILE INTO THE DARKNESS!"

The entire table started cackling and he had no idea why. Appearently he had never even heard the phrase before, which warms the cockles of my dried up GM's heart.

I've never come across the phrase either. What's going on?
Dungeons and Dragons by The Dead Ale Wives. Youtube it. It's worth it.

Also, (If I'm not mistaken, my memory not being what it once was) The phrase was originally coined in ZORK. 'I attack the Darkness'.

(ZORK being 'the original' adventure game, back when all such games were text-only. You were described a room/situation, and you typed out your action/response. The game was very limited and literal, and only the exactly-correct response would solve the puzzle/problem. It was famous for having darkness-areas that could only be passed if you had a light source, otherwise it would not allow you to proceed. This is also where 'Eaten by a Grue' came from.)

Thank you! :)

Question, where is this magnificent 'HIDE' button I keep hearing about?
I keep flagging, but I can't find the button to hide the thread after I Flag it.

<Magic missile FLAGS another one>

Dang things are like c0ckroaches. WHen you find one you know there are 100 others hiding behind it, waiting for you to turn the lights out.

But magic-missile-flags ONE more on his way out! ;P

Lol!

Peeps keeps telling me that I need to get on Face-time-waster-book. ;)

I actually am missing a lot of info this month, (our Addams family show has a private Facebook page with updates being posted.) Fortunately my wife and daughter have Facebook, so I'm keeping up. :)

One day I'll surrender to the inevitable. (Resistance is futile. You will Facebook! The Daleks, Cybermen and Borg have all declared it so!)

I actually tried once a few years ago, but someone who apparently has the same name as me had already taken that name. And he did the same thing I would have, made the page, and then hadn't posted anything on it in 3 years. ;P

Have fun, I've actually been in my house 7 years come September, and I STILL haven't 'gotten around' to finishing the decorations in my bat-cave. (Mostly Star Wars stuff, but still) :)


As I said in your other thread,...

Woo-Hoo!

Um,... As long as the light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train of course. ;D

Gratz on the place and move. Have fun decorating your man-game-cave!

:)

See you soon!

I flag em when I see em on the sidebar, but I haven't ever gone looking for them.

Heck, obviously we don't have to go LOOKING for them! ;P

Flag at Will!!

Whatever WILL did, he deserves flagging! ;)

G'night Night-wolves, happy hunting!

Sooo, Windows Update C#@$$%& my home Game PC, spent 2 days trying to recover it. JUST got it back up.
NOW only have about 200 hours of re-down-loading and installing all of the stuff I had on it before, and I'll be good to go! ;P

Oh well, at least it was only the operating system, and not the Drive itself. (Far as I can tell) I was able to put the Hard drive in an enclosure and rescue all of my files, pics, music, etc on it. (Man I have a lot of junk! digital AND physical!)

See you all after a few hours of sleep! :)

Have a good weekend!

Yay for places to live!

Con gratz Pat, now for what is possibly the most unpleasant task on the planet.

MOVING,...

;P

Seriously, I think I would rather have my teeth pulled while awake with no anesthesia.

(OK, maybe not, but I REALLY dislike moving. I moved TOO much during my college years, and again too many times in a row after Katrina.) :P

But seriously, gratz and good luck! I wish I was a few states closer, I would offer to help! :)

Because apparently helping OTHERS move doesn't bother me as much as moving myself, weird. Huh?
:)

Good luck sir! See you when you get settled in the new pad!

Gratz on doing such a difficult thing.

ACK! Werewolf sighting!

But my aim is getting better,...

congratulations man. I know how hard quitting can be.

Thanks. It's weird. You know the whole "cold turkey" thing? It really is the ONLY way to do it. I kept trying to cut down to a "reasonable" 2 drinks a day and it never worked.

So after a particularly bad day where I was *gasp* rude to a guest, I just decided, "OK, that's it," and stopped entirely.
There are good days and bad days, but on the whole it's WAAAAAAY easier than trying to drink a "moderate" amount...

Gratz again my good interwebs acquaintance! :)

My dad quit smoking cold turkey (many moons ago) and always claimed that it was the only way to go.

Fortunately for me, I can afford neither cigarettes nor alcohol (at least not in enough quantities to induce drunkenness) and I have decided that's good, as I lack the desire and willpower to stop things that I might enjoy,... :)

So double-good for you! :D


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

And, um, CY?
You forgot something,...


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Lol!
Abadar cleric,... That's too good not to use!
:)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Argh,

Got back from my escape, I mean mini-vacate to visit family, and return to find my ac is not working.

Turns out the fan is broken, and if I keep trying to run it, and it stops, I'll blow up my compressor. That would mean replacing the entire AC and not 'just' the fan. :(

So, spent last night with NO AC, just fans. the Temp was 81 F, but the humidity was redonkulous. ;P

AND will get much worse as the sun rises this glorious, muggy-as-heck morning.

So much for saving the little bit of money I had for OTHER things,... <Sigh>

So,.... How is every body else this @#$%& morning?!? :D

No, it's me. My characters are all better off than I am.

Argh, sorry to hear that Treppa. Hope everything is alright, just crazy? :)

Wow, that reads even weirder than it sounded in my head. :/

How about, 'I hope things get better soon!' :)


You know, I'm just thinkin',...

I realized that All this powder keg-situation needs is for Danny to open his mouth, (as Danny is wont to do)
And this entire tense situation dissolves into a simple, glorious multi-way brouhaha-of-doom! :)

Then I remembered that Danny is nothing if not a Self-Preservationist. And that he is seriously lacking anything resembling a rocket launcher.

:P


Ouch!
I hope you at least get to enjoy the paycheck! :)

Sounds like my old A/V days.
We started to hit 80 hours in a week so often, we didn't even blink at it anymore. We only started talking about our hours when we hit 90 hours/week. When we hit 100 hours/week, we celebrated, because the accumulated OT was redonkulous. :)

Wow, was that only 9 years ago? Seems like SO much longer, when I was MUCH younger! ;P


No stress! No stress!

THIS part is supposed to be fun! :)

Is all good Pat, hope you got to enjoy a little something for the 4th!


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!

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,
