The Citroen DS wagon is a preeeetty funky looking car. Like something from Fallout. In fact, it's vaguely hearse-like. Might work nicely.

The Eternal Champion

Novel by Michael Moorcock (wiki)

That was the book my very first D&D game was based on. Good times.


Female Humanish

I wish. The rusted out one in LA is about $18k. E-types in good shape are just south of $100k. Beside, that's Treppa's dream car, and Treppa was a Matchbox Car kid. I figure Sal for a Hot Wheels kid. And even the 2+2 Jag is a joke for passengers. 2 people + 2 hamsters, maybe. No good for a Scooby van.

I was thinking something funkier and less flashy for a fugitive. :) Maybe an old Citroen? Or an old Mercedes, though they tend to be taxified in Europe and get some hard, hard miles put on them. But I had a coworker once who bought nothing but old Mercedes diesels. Swore they never gave up the ghost, they just looked like crap eventually.


Female Humanish

Looky here. See why I've been in love with this car since I was six?

Nontopical! Nontopical! Sorry, just had to drool a bit.


Female Humanish

XKE s came in 12-cylinder models. :):):)


Female Humanish

More looking for something that will not fall victim to having a wizardy person in the car. Letitia blew several circuits in that sleek, modern car in London, and Sal's not having any of that!

I'd go for a Jag XKE BUT she wants something that will hold more than two people, just in case Morien's not around.


Female Humanish

Boo, gone. Yay, vacation! Boo, beach. I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere. >_>

By the way, Sal's bought an old beater car to start fixing up during the downtime. I'm hoping it's possible to find something without electronic fuel injectors or carbeuration, maybe a butterfly carb. Something that wizardy types can't bring to a screeching halt by hexing. Any suggestions for make/model?

Crafting & stuff:

DSX, as she's fixing it up, she'll put Kevlar panels in the doors and body. These are surprisingly cheap and light and look easy to work with. I was thinking of having her craft some body armor, but it's relatively cheap and available online. Between Kevlar (and its ilk) and ceramic plates, armor's out there that can stop a sniper bullet at 50 yards. Pretty rad. Most of what's available is torso-covering, so she might have to stitch some fabric and light plates into heavy-duty pants. Let me know if I need to roll Craftsmanship. She'd probably ask a friend in London to order things for her, pay them cash, and meet them someplace along the train line to pick it up. I do have Contacts if that's needed.

She'll also get some great binoculars and a copy of The Helm Guide to Bird Identification to explain why she's wandering around with binoculars in case she's asked. :D


Female Humanish

OK, still working tonight. I'll get an early morning post in when I'm fresh and have time to read and digest everything. Promise.

Problem was, I was supposed to be at my client's office at 9 a.m. and was awakened by her call at 10:30. :( I usually wake between 5 or 6 (or 2-3 some days), so don't set an alarm. I have plenty of time to prep a good post and get ready for work -- usually. D'oh.


Female Humanish

I know I've been bugging you about Jorvik, DSX, but I actually don't have the re-rebuild done. Might take me a couple of days.

As far as interim stuff, I only need to know if Maya said anything, or acknowledged being "the Voice".

Thanks, DSX, you're awesome.

So for some reason people in here have been strenuously hating on my parents' professions, my home town, and my home state. What the heck? This place is so damned negative, it's not fun anymore.

Oh, thank you! I was wondering if I'd flubbed things because people aren't posting.

Self-doubt sucks.

So, I'm headed to GenCon. First time in my life, although I've wanted to go since 1980. I'm actually very excited, since I will be meeting up with a certain badger and possibly a dwarf. It's funny how if you make up your mind to do something and ignore the doubts that you find that the complications you were worried about seem to resolve themselves.
That they do! I think it's awesome that you are going.

Me too! Be like Nike and Just Do It. That's my motto, and I've never done anything I regret.

Nope, nothing.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I didn't take the examples as being exclusive. I sure hope not! Flexibility is the heart of FATE.

For me, they helped the transition from backstory to characteristics. How was the character changed by the incident? How might they act now? It made me think about differently.

No fried okra? :(
I could only afford one side. :(

Sadness. :'(


Female Humanish

I enjoy doing that. Hestia Harper's name in the Mass Effect name is tied to the core of her being. Sal's name (her real one, not her posted one which has turned into an alias) is also significant. My elven alchemist Syliva's name is ironic, since she considers the woods strange and "elfy". So yeah, even though others may not "get it", I often build meaning or jokes into character names.


Female Humanish

I got through the first three episodes of the Eccleston reboot before Netflix decided to remove Dr. Who from availability. >_<

ASPECTS! I meant to post this a while ago for the new guys, but forgot. My second FATE game, Mass Effect, requested that, for each aspect, the player concoct not only a description, but also an invoke and compel idea. The GM is not tied to these uses. I found that having to make the aspect actionable really helped bridge the gap from coolstorybro to a true aspect.

I think there's a repeated post filter to prevent duplicate postings. You may have run afoul of that. Change the wording more significantly.

Spoiler:

I think this was an anti-mining device. "Mine!"

I'm open to suggestions for the 'minor noble' family name.

Because the Council of Thieves campaign made Westcrown a really close analogy to fallen Rome, I tend to think of Cheliax as having an Italian look, feel, and sound.

Paizo doesn't seem to use that standard and tends to construct mostly stock "fantasy names" for their characters - lots of Ks and Gs, if you watch Tom et ses Chums, M. Garrrrdakkkaan et Morrrdakkk! (And Xs in Cheliax, as Meows pointed out.)

But then, I think I do a better job of naming characters than Paizo. :P

NOTE: If you watch the video, part 2 of 2 is a bit NSFW. >_>

Illinois has seen increasing seismic activity in the last five to ten years.

So it's not implausible *cough*frak mining*cough*

New Madrid has been overdue for a big one for a while, which will likely affect Chicago (since the mild 1968 New Madrid event was felt there readily). There has also been increasing activity in the Wabash Valley (straight south of Chicago along the IL/IN border) which leads geologist to think it may be shaking off its dormancy.

Not sure that any of it is related to frakking. There's a little oil in southern Illinois, but not much. And absolutely zero under my family's land, naturally.

The El also goes through tunnels, so...

(Or connects with the subway, if you'd rather. It's all one system. Plus there are the underground pedways and lower street levels. So whoever was saying that is blowing it out his or her ass.)

Yup.

Lessons from the Antitroll.

I do remember one South Park episode that was so incredibly topical and slashingly funny it took my breath away. It aired about a week after the incident in question... and darned if I can remember what that incident was.

By the way, I drive past South Park here in Colorado every week day. So glad I don't live there.


Female Humanish

I like Eccleston; he's very believable as an alien. And being unfamiliar with the mythos, I wouldn't skip the first season of the reboot. I'm enjoying watching the Earth's destruction. The episode reminds me somewhat of The Fifth Element. And the science in this episode is better than in the first, where the global transmission should have fried the population of London (or failed due to lack of signal strength). Yes, I'm one of those people who's a real load to have at movies. "But that doesn't make sense!" "Shut up, Treppa!"

Had to look this up. She's inherently 140 but weighs 650 transformed? Where does the mass for the extra 510# come from? Does she suck in nearby matter like a black hole? Because that would be a good superpower in itself.
same extradimensional source hulk's comes from.

Oh, finished watching "Rose" tonight, and I'm kind of baffled. Is it supposed to be humor or suspense or science fiction/fantasy or camp or drama or adventure or... yes?

Yeah, sometimes I should shut my big mouth... :)
