So... I've been gone a while, and I apologize to those of you whose PbPs I'm in. I finally found a job after 7 months of looking, and it's been eating up most of my waking hours in some way or another. Hopefully, I'll be adjusted to the hours and physical labor soon, and will be back to regular posting.

sorry for DM PCing you for a moment, Mr. Shiny, but since you had already stated an action that was easy to carry through to the next round and I was going to just shove you all on a train anyways, I figured it wouldn't matter too much either way. :)

That's totally cool. Again, I apologize for joining the PbP and then barely posting at all. I promise things on my end will normalize themselves enough for me to post regularly in the very near future.

The Byrds' Greatest Hits
So, Mr. Shiny, do you have a favorite Byrds period? (Period, in this case, this being the mid-sixties, once every year and a half.)

Not really. I tend to like them at their jangliest, but I really haven't done my research. I got into them mainly because a bunch of bands I like (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Buzzy Girl Flynn, the Gin Blossoms, Bruce Springsteen, The Gaslight Anthem, etc.) were influenced a by them.

Since the original Star Wars movies are from before you were born, this is not a function of age, but a reflection of the fact that you were exposed to movies that were already old by the time you watched them. You are still a youngun.

True, but the guy I was talking to was a toddler when the prequels came out.

Star Wars transcends age limitations. I think your friends are simply not as cool as you. :-)

Considering the fact that the dude in question is a 19-year-old Goth keyboard player, it's a possibility.

What's it do?

It allows you to block certain websites during specified hours of the day so that you can more easily budget your time.

Apologies for the massive delay in posting. I've been dealing with some mental health issues, and haven't had quite enough spoons to manage posting.

In any case, conventions that I use in my posts:
- present tense
- internal thoughts in italics
- dialog in quotes
- game mechanics and GM questions in OOC text

Shiny, do you want me to just throw you into the mix?

Sure, though I don't mean to cause trouble. I've been slightly swamped on my end (illustration CFH, plus a giant stack of job applications), though that should be done in the next day or so, which will free up more of my mental capacity for game stuff.

I've got a question not relevant to the current situation, but may come up later: battle aspergillum + acid: is this feasible?

Doubly weird since I've been playing variations on this character for a couple years now.

Mr. Shiny, I thought Vitalia had been mentioned as beling related to Tasnim, but now I'm not seeing that anywhere. Am I missing it on someone's sheet? As both of you have the "Child of the Crusade" campaign trait, you have to be related, even if distantly.

I didn't mention anything--I've been holding off on writing my character's back-story, since that's a big factor in this AP, and I wanted to get more information from you and the other players.

I want to like this post more than once.

I *really* want to run this. I think it owuld be awesome to run it as a paladin only thing. although maybe Paladins, Clerics and Inquisitors would be fun. Run it as a troop from a religious order. That would be soooo cool.

PbP? ;)

If so, I'd totally go for it.

Just to clarify: here in New England, all set has a rather nebulous meaning of "I'm ready to progress to the next step in my dining experience." If you're looking at the menu, it can mean you're ready to order, but if you hand your server a twenty for a fifteen dollar check, it's synonymous with "Keep the change."

The times there's been confusion (which, funny stories about Canada aside, hasn't really been very often) people have taken it to mean "I am done for the evening and will be leaving immediately."

Is other regional usage similar? Yes, we're talking about the regional nuance of the phrase "all set": I love you, OTD forum friends. :)

My usage definitely fits your first definition, though I'm not sure if I picked that up from my mother or from living in NY along the border with Vermont. I'm kind of a dialect sponge.

Problem is Shiny no option of going cold turkey with these meds. They affect my whole brain chemistry, it takes 3 months to adapt to them in the first place. Withdrawal symptoms include brain shivers (complete hell if you ever experienced them), crippling disorientation, day long nausea, day long dizziness, and this would likely happen for weeks after I stop taking them.

Sounds like when I stopped taking the amphetamines I was proscribed for ADHD a few years back. I was on them for four months, and the withdrawals lasted for about another month, over the span of which I lost about 25 pounds from lack of food. Probably not the best decision on my part.

New England, Customer Service, and "All Set"

Urban Dictionary

There seems to be some controversy around this issue and whether it really is a New England thing (Link 1, Link 2), but I have personally dined out with non-New Englanders who were confounded by this usage about a half-dozen times.

I would argue against it being exclusively a New England thing. I use the phrase, which I picked up from my mother, who is a Wisconsin native.

I listened to Dan Carlins Hardcore History podcast on American imperialism (The American Peril) I disagreed on a few things, i.e US imperialism didn't start with the Spanish - American war, for me it was evident in manifest destiny, expanding beyond the original states after the revolution, and the clumsy attempt to annex Canada.

It also made me reassess my opinion of Teddy Roosevelt, and not in a positive way. Good podcast though.

Hardcore History is one of my all-time favorites.

I've had that experience. It's no fun. In the end, I ended up braving the withdrawals and quitting cold turkey, like most of the other medications I've been on. Good luck, man.
