I want to keep bees. I don't want them to get away, I want to KEEP them. They have too much freedom.

My old GM joins the fray as a fellow player... This could be very, very interesting.

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.

Standards of beauty may vary, but so do the skill levels of amateur photomanipulators...

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

Would it be too much to ask for someone at least marginally normal, stable, and grounded in reality?

Because the player of the strong man doesn't actually have to lift boulders, and the player of the Wizard doesn't actually have to cast spells, so why should the player of the face actually have to be an outgoing, extrovert?

I've always found that when it comes to the three mental ability scores, players can be hampered by their own limitations. For example, my IRL Charisma score is probably on the low side. I have a really hard time negotiating, intimidating, or even just conversing. As such, I don't really know how to do those things, in-game or otherwise. Most of the characters I've played have been pretty lacking in Charisma, or have relied on methods of utilizing the ability score other than diplomacy/intimidate.

Basically, you can easily pretend to be strong, tough, or fast, but it's harder to pretend to be wiser, smarter, or more charismatic than you are in real life. Though, as has been mentioned, a really good GM can help their players overcome some of their limitations in-game.

We typically don't share ours with each other, but my worst one was an old wizard who had gone senile. He was convinced that magic leaked out of your body when you touch things so he (this was before mythic) floated around on floating disk completely nude in order to keep from touching anything.

He was half crazed, slightly xenophobic, and hated other casters because of their mocking of his theories related to magical reservoirs and magical energy conduction. He was prone to long angry rants upon meeting another caster.

In combat he would chase people around, electricity sparking from his finger tips, screaming "i'm going to touch you!"

This sounds like possibly the greatest character ever.

When my new PF group was just starting out, one of the players brought in a single-spaced 20-page backstory for her character. It was kind of over the top, so we poked a bit of good-natured fun, and then forgot about it.

Months later, we brought in a new player, and happened to mention the 20-page backstory incident to him before he made his character. When he showed up on his first day, he presented me with his character sheet, wearing a s*%#-eating grin on his face. His character backstory was a sheet of printer paper, on which was typed in minuscule font "Backstory: mysterious."

Needless to say, we got along famously.

Got back last night from a four-day tour with some local musicians. Got promoted from merch guy to to road manager on the first day. Spent the weekend having a good time, but feeling very old while hanging out with college kids. Very exhausted. Pictures can be found here.

Elves, sex, and making fun of paladins? Is this a book, or is it the "gamer talk" section of the forums?

Whoever built the house that I just spent five days working on is an idiot, or possibly allergic to straight lines. After ripping out two walls and putting up some new drywall, I noticed that all of my work looked crooked. After some close examination, I realized that, in fact, my work was the only thing straight about the whole damn basement. I had to re-do half the patch job so that it matched the crookedness of everything else. Also, I noticed that the baseboard molding in most of the house was only nailed up on the ends.

Is this going to be a structural issue at any point later?

Nope, the whole thing is solid as a rock. Everything's just in varying degrees of off-kilter-ness.

Client: "How much would you charge for designing a logo for my band?"
Me: "Well... it looks like maybe two hours worth of work, so maybe $30 or $40?"
Client: "Sounds cool. I'll send you a money order. It'll be there in a week or something."

Something tells me this isn't going to end well.

Interesting observation from five minutes ago: Marlboro Black Menthols combined with Angry Orchard hard cider tastes exactly like balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. I'm OK with this.

Just got back from playing a show. The band I play in, Operation Hennessey, was first on the bill, followed by Judge Gazza, Anormous Jonsun, Insufficient Funds, and Dérive.
