I understand the stickiness with the Visa situation. They want to make sure you're not a layabout who is coming over to collect public funds. But in my case I have thoroughly proven that is not the case. They have my full employment history, they have my husbands full employment history. They have my husbands letter of offer from the company he is going to work for including wage. They have proof we are not in a greencard marriage with a marriage license going back 4 and half years ago + leases that go back even further with both our names on it. So I think all will be fine, but even so this is stressful.
I am moving to the UK guys. My husband got a job with Cambridge University, we will be living in Bedfordshire starting the end of May. That's why I need the visa :P
So made a trip to Edmonton and back at the beginning of the week for my UK visa application. Got up there to get my biometrics done and the employees are all contractors who know nothing and answered no questions. So I am given this checklist of like a dozen things and only half of which I was asked to bring for the application. So I was panicked plus I had to pay $2000 for the damn thing. Since these contractors have no idea what the visa requirements are I get no info and left all panicked that I didn't bring the right paperwork. I get home to see the checklist they gave me was for ALL settlement visas for the UK. So now I still have my doubts as to wether I will be fine. But apparently I can appeal the decision and even enter the UK while it is appealed. My God this process sucks so much. And I may have to make an impromptu trip to Ireland if things go weirdly.
What Erik says makes sense to me actually. The majority of Miniature consumers are PLAYERS not GMs. Therefore the majority of players would be looking for that perfect PC mini, or buying a bunch for future PC ideas. Now I have been miniature collecting over a decade and a lot of miniature collectors would be very similar I would imagine as the hobby is well established, therefore builder sets would mostly appeal to one demographic new miniature collecting GMs. This would mean sales on those could be a bit lax.
Dear government you suck at doing the simplest tasks. My husband requested a letter that is necessary for my Spousal Visa on March 3rd. And they said they sent it March 4th. We received it Friday and it had been post dated for the 21st. So after us nagging them about it, it had sat on someones desk waiting to be sent for 3 weeks. >:(
Your always welcome Aberzombie. You get the plane ticket and you'll have a place to stay family and all.
Hey all sorry been gone for awhile. Life gets way to busy. So for those of you not caught up on my life.
So in short I have 8 weeks left hear in North America. Soon to be a resident of Bedfordshire England.
I feel no better for the death of this vile man. Though he has passed away his legacy of disgusting behavior continues. This man who protested the funerals murdered LGBT victims. This man who had no regard for the grief mothers who lost sons to war. This man who he and his vile church held signs thanking God for IEDs and with a megaphone proclaimed that God sent your children back dead for not executing all the f&$@%+s. This man who lead a church of hate and his legacy will only be pain, hatred, and bigotry. I will not celebrate your death Fred Phelps, because there is nothing to celebrate. I can only hope you died alone shunned by those you love as the news seems to portend.
Ok after doing some research on the "Fred Phelps" is dying story I found a direct quote from the source finally. Fred Phelps estranged son Nate Phelps. The results seem to be this. Nate knows about Freds condition from a nephew who has left the church quite recently. As to the rumors that Fred Phelps is no longer associated with the WBC it seems to be true. As of last August WBC moved to a leadership council of 8 elders anticipating Rev. Phelps poor condition. The result was clashes between these 8 elders and Rev Phelps that lead to his excommunication. Rev. Phelps is apparently in a hospice in Topeka Kansas currently.
Like to give my shout out. Sean good luck with this new exciting chapter of your life. I am happy to hear about you and Jodi's move and impending success. I have greatly enjoyed your work since your first days here at paizo. And as WoW player who has greatly enjoyed playing with you on the paizo guild I wish you only the best. I also embark on my own journey to England and cordially invite you and Jodi to enjoy a nice trip to the English countryside after you guys get settled.
I have to say as a fan of epic level play, Mythic really scratched that epic level itch. If you can challenge (maybe not easily defeat) demi god powered things such as Demon lords, Arch devils, and empyreal lords I say that is high enough. The death of gods should be super divine cataclysmic events that are beyond the ability of mortals. Lets face it as a top mythic tier 20th level mortal you can already effect events on a global and even eternal scale (by killing demigods). Why do you need to go further than that?
Ok to the naysayers.

I have an aversion to trans folks. But it is a visceral reaction inside of me. But guess what I don't actually dislike them or anything. I in fact stand up for their rights and all. I found the aversion unacceptable and forced myself to get to know some folks from that community and to fight it. I never want to be that way and even though I don't really know where the ingrained reaction came from in the first place, I decided I wasn't going to let it rule my actions. Because that is not who I am and what I want to be. Does that make me transphobic? Maybe not sure but I am certainly not going to let it stay that way.
To wrap it up actions do speak louder than internal feelings.
Back where I grew up in New Brunswick we had the Maliseet tribe. They had a legend of the little people who lived along the river in small holes. The Maliseet would trade with the little people who were about as tall as a mans knee. The little people were apparently known for odd rituals and the gift of not being seen when they wanted to, even in broad daylight. They had a side of trickery to them as well, they would braid peoples hair into elaborate shapes when they were asleep. They loved the smell of sweet grass as well and could always be coaxed out of hiding by burning it. The maliseet said that the little people started to leave after colonists started to arrive, and went away completely after dams were built in the river and changed the river so much.

I really wish I could financially afford to buy more minis. But in reality it is usually just one case with the gargantuan incentive and every now and again 2 cases. Also because I have a large established minis set the builder sets has as of yet been unable to help me build anything. And buying minis I don`t need is a bit frivolous, as I already have opening parties with every new case that arrives in which I give away the minis I don`t need from the case. That being said you produce a townsfolk builder set and I will buy a case of that no problem maybe 2.
I agree the builder sets are awesome especially for beginner GMs who want to build up their mini collections. I however haven`t bought them only because I don`t need them. I will buy a case of every new set however and with the Wrath of the Righteous minis I will be getting 2 cases as I will be running that game fairly soon. (January)
I also hate gender policing. What affects me more is enforced stereotypes. See I am gay and have a husband, I don't have a lilt in my voice I am not effeminate at all (and have no problem to those who are), I was raised a s a farm boy who played football and listened to country music. To this day I am just a usual guy personality and it freaks out every person who finds out I'm gay. I get a lot of "No Way, you can't be." or really freaked out guys who never saw it coming. Hey guys I got news for you, personality and homosexuality are not always related!!!!!
Umm for those of you questioning whether you could bring back Aroden with a simple True Ressurection, I have a logic question for you. Iomedae was the divine servant of Aroden she was a deity at the time of his death, and know what Iomedae stands for do you not think if she could bring him back she wouldn't? Do you not think that if Iomedae knew what happened to Aroden she would stay idle about it? James am I making any sort of logical sense?
