You need a pinecone sucker.

Or this one, to pull behind your hugh-mongous tractor.

Bonus-wise, their utility is not limited to pinecones, but also includes dog 'problems', bones, small animals, insects, toys, pets, and neighbors.

F Elf Alchemist 4 {Init +3; Perception +8 (llv); HP 26/35}

Sylvia takes a couple of long, dancing strides towards the first horror and unleashes a Bomb of Unusual Size with an odd flick of her wrist, slanting the blast away from her friends. She hopes. It's a risk, but maybe enough fire will hurt the things. And, really, you can never have enough fire.

BOUS toss ranged touch: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (9) + 9 = 18
BOUS damage if hits: 2d6 + 4 ⇒ (2, 1) + 4 = 7
Move to O5 and throw at Thing 1, excluding squares containing friends.

"Bargain alchemical supplies, indeed," she snarls at the resulting tiny gout of flame, "That's the last time I buy at Edgar's Discount Spells."

I'm reading Dumas' complete works. In the middle of Twenty Years After right now. Great source for gaming politics and plots!

Sinister?

Yeah, that struck me as a bluff check, where nobody was paying enough attention to bother making a sense motive roll. Guaranteed he's stalking the vampire.
it struck me as "the best way I can help is by being out of the way"
Possibly. Just reread it & I noticed that he's kind of looking directly at Durkula as he's saying it. I suspect that Fromper & strayshift might be on to something...
Either we're totally right, or Belkar really is just worried about the vampire eating his cat. :P
Or it's both. Also, the nesting quotes are starting to look like either a pit or a pyramid, depending upon how my eyes look at it.
Both pit and pyramid are appropriate for OotS :P
That's a pretty weirdly proportioned pyramid...
I suppose it'll look right when it gets to about 35 'nests'.

A lot of good stuff.

A continuation of the river analogy is a dam. Through meditation and mindfulness, you can become aware of the emotions you're feeling and allow them a controlled release at safe times. Otherwise, they're going to break through at moments of maximum stress and you'll feel out of control.

I saw a reality show where one contestant was slammed for crying each week. Her response? Essentially: This is hard for me. I get frustrated and I let it out. Then I'm ready to buckle down and work.

I respect that. It's controlled release.

I set my microwaved popcorn on fire at work once. I mean, it FLAMED when I opened the bag. I had to run it under water. It smelled absolutely horrible. Then I left the building for an offsite meeting, commiserating with everyone who complained about the smell. "Awful, isn't it? What idiot did that?"

Ucky. Putting marshmallows on sweet potatoes is like putting honey on top of frosted cake!

Sorry your turkey is still frozen. Can you wrench out the giblet package? Once that is disloged, it all thaws faster. I run hot water into the cavity and wiggle the giblets (ooh, provocative) to get them loose, then set them aside to thaw separately.

Box stuffing is amazingly good, particularly if you put turkey drippings in it and the cooked giblets, if you like that sort of thing.

Studpuffin put a harmonica-playing bard in a group of kobolds. It was... well... we ran. Either the harmonica was super effective or we couldn't roll above a five to save our (fantasy) lives.

Humiliating defeat. How can kobolds play the harmonica anyway? Do they even have lips?

A novice once won a wine tasting contest by describing the taste of one white wine as 'opening a yellow umbrella in a warm summer rain'.

Wine is not the first thing that image brings to my mind, but then I'm a nasty person.

Well, Christina Stiles let the cat out of the bag on her Kickstarter "Guide for Gamer Girls" update. I'm working with her to help organize her projects and learn the indy ropes as well. She recently left her job to go full-time, so a lot of new things will come through the Medusa Pipeline very soon. (Note: Not everything is for the Pathfinder system)

If you'd like to keep abreast of developments, sign up for her newsletter and don't miss a thing.

Hey, at least it's not some random Kickstarter. :P

... And where's the racism? My best guess is "The Patchwork Girl of Oz", with its quote of that song "Ah wants mah Lulu, mah coal-black Lulu", and with the "Tottenhots" apparently referring to the Hottentots. I didn't think that was so bad.

Or am I missing something? What sexism and racism did you mean?

It's from "The Woggle-Bug Book", wherein the Woggle Bug comes to Earth and encounters (mostly) women from all different ethnicities and one 'Oriental' man. Between the dialect and the stereotyped ethnic portrayals, it's embarrassing. I'm on Ozma of Oz right now, fourth of the series. I thought the lackadaisical attitude toward gender changing in "The Marvelous Land of Oz" was pretty interesting. General Jinjer's troops were silly, but Glinda's weren't. Plus the men were portrayed as having difficulty with 'women's work'. I didn't have a lot of issues with that one.

*Points at the thread title.*

So, uh.... books. Yeah.

I've been reading L Frank Baum's 'Wizard of Oz' series. They are short and easy to read and OH MY GOD. I don't know if that much sexism and racism was standard back in the day, or if Baum was some sort of freak, but yeesh. I'm embarrassed to read some of it.

I'm glad you posted that, Sissyl, because my worst bout of depression was not sadness, it was a complete lack of emotion for months and months. It was actually pretty subtle because it didn't involve sadness, crying, etc. I finally said something to my GP because I was utterly apathetic as to whether I ever woke up again, and my reason told me that this was not normal.

After a few apathetic weeks on an SSRI, I woke up one morning and thought 'what a pretty morning'. But that day, I felt it, too. I was glad to see the morning. And that was the beginning of the climb out of the hole. There was no dramatic breakthrough. In fact, I hate the 'hug and cry' movies wherein a sudden change fixes everything. That doesn't happen. It may be part of the climb, but it doesn't get you out of that deep hole. Trying every day is what gets you out. Using all the tools at your disposal is what gets you out. It's a long, hard slog and that shadow is always there, waiting, even when you feel better.
