One player is running a character named Dom. He was expressing some doubts about our plans.

Player: "Okay, Doubting Domus."

Domus? As in "Romanes Eunt?"

I think you're in the wrong thread. The thread for Best Roleplaying/Backstory You've Ever Seen is that way!

I don't know how I forgot Ca$h Daddy. That was his name and yes, you have to spell it with the dollar sign. A girl from the office I worked in started up a D&D game (one of the worst I've ever played in). We invited this guy who another guy knew and he made a Barbarian named Ca$h Daddy.

When asked by the DM to write a back story he literally wrote that he was just out for hos.

I wonder if he knows Kanye the Giant...

Speaking as someone who was a teenager when they first started loitering around these forums, and who is now pushing 30, they grow out of it. Stupid things will be done and said, but they grow out of it.

Just heard someone on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." refer to Morocco as being in the Middle East. Aw, hell, they've got lots of sand there, it's practically the same place.

Two Romans walk into a bar and sit at the table. When the waiter comes over, the first customer asks for wine, and the second, a Martinus. The waiter asks "What is that?" The customer replies "You know what a Martinus is, don't you? Martinus, Martini, Martino, Martinum, Martinorum." The waiter goes away and brings the wine. "Where's my Martinus?" asks the second customer. "You declined the Martinus, sir" replies the waiter.

Currently listening to the first rough mix from the album I'm working on. I'm convinced I'm slowly learning how to unplay the guitar.

Last night (from 5 PM to 5 AM) was spent volunteering as a fill-in actor at a F~~&ING MASSIVE haunted house. Cool, but I never want to do that again. Also, I now know how background NPCs in video games feel repeating the same lines over and over again. By the end, I was tempted to tell the patrons all about the warriors from Hammerfell and their curved. Swords.

No pictures, but back in 2010, forum members Moorluck, Woodraven, and myself all got Paizo golem tattoos in Myrtle Beach, SC. A couple weeks later, we were all at Paizocon, I managed to freak out Lisa Stevens by taking my shirt off to show her.

So apparently 'Twin Peaks' is coming back in 2016. Due to a certain quote from the show, I'm convinced David Lynch has had this planned for a very long time.

Got back last night from four days of construction and landscaping for my uncle out in Barker, NY. Made a couple hundred, plus the added perks of room, board, and all the Sam Adams I could drink, plus 40 pounds of venison to take home.

I'm sorry, Sylgja, but I've found someone else. She's got blue skin and can flay you alive... with her mind. Also, she doesn't do nearly as much of the watching-me-while-I-sleep-while-munching-on-an-entire-loaf-of-bread thing.

they were far more cunning than that, if you remember.

Hence the "not to be confused." Sometimes I wonder if the Pakleds have an intellectual edge on Kim, Chakotay, Torres, and Janeway.

Also, while re-watching Star Trek: Voyager, I've come to the conclusion that a more fitting title would have been Star Trek: Ship Full Of Morons.

Why rag on the French when you can rag on French Canadians. They're not nearly as nice as the French, and they're much closer. *ducks*

A punk rock fable. Also a true story:

Once upon a time, in the far-off land of 2009, a band called The Andrea Doria was on tour, driving down the highway outside of Savannah, Georgia. Suddenly, the van lurched to a halt on the roadside, black smoke billowing from under the hood. The bass player, who was also a mechanic, deduced that a magician had made all of the engine oil disappear. The guitar player began dialing the venue to tell them that they were not going to make the gig. The singer attempted to flag down a car who could take them to a towing service. The drummer, who was the youngest of the bunch, began to panic. "What are we going to do? We're stranded a thousand miles from home, and our van is on fire," cried the drummer, "what are we going to do?" Shutting the hood of the van, the bass player turned to the drummer, laying a hand on the young man's shoulder. "Nothing," said the bass player. "We live here now."

In other news, I was able to buy a mattress & box spring from my roommate (who is moving out in a few weeks) in exchange for a $50 McDonald's gift card and a jar full of loose change. I can't actually sleep on the bed until my roommate moves out, since my current room in the apartment isn't big enough for a bed, but in a few weeks, I'll be able to sleep in a bed on a regular basis for the first time since junior year of college. This is my life.

Spent the last week doing some landscaping work at my folks' place, and made enough money to put myself in the black for a week or two and pay back a few small debts. It's a bit like robbing Peter to pay Paul, since I owe my folks money, but cash is cash.

Speaking of video games, I'm thinking that my next tattoo is going to be something along these lines. Which would bring my nerd tattoo count up to two, counting my Paizo golem tattoo.

Anybody got a major household appliance delivered from Sears lately?

Speaking as a former Sears employee, they can eat a bag of dicks. No one gets trained (or paid on time, for that matter), and OSHA violations are rampant. Their new products are junk, and some of the stuff they advertise as being new is actually "refurbished" (A.K.A. sort of cleaned, with the dents pounded out, and not actually fixed in any way). Basically, nothing works, nobody gets paid, no one knows how do do things, including the managers, and everyone is basically just waiting there to get another job. There's a reason that Sears is the only job I've ever quit.

Good: I was able to do a simultaneous "one-click" application for every open job position at every Home Depot store within 20 miles.

Bad: the "one-click" application was 12 pages long, included a 72-question self-assessment at the end, and took me over an hour to complete.

You might be a Paizo veteran if you're seeing references to inside jokes on this thread, and remember that they were very funny 7 or 8 years ago, but it's been so long since you've heard them that you can't remember what the joke was.

Dear potential client,

The fact that you're a non-profit organization does not mean that you do not have to pay me to do work for you. I like that you're putting on free concerts for the local alterna-youths, but I can't eat references, and I can't pay my rent with experience. Please come back with money, and then we'll talk.

Sincerely,
Very Tired Of Dealing With People Who Do This
