Congratulations!


Drove nails into the coffins of The Many Deaths of the Black Company, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Adventures of Master Li and Number Ten Ox tonight. I've started on Anne of Green Gables but really need to reread a few books and do promised reviews.

I'm very bad about those. :(

You're all wrong. It's periwinkle and ochre.


So, I gave up on my 1 page per minute Nook V1 yesterday and bought a new one that actually flips pages at a reasonable chunking rate.

Then I had to visit the store to spend my $5 credit (HAD TO, OK?) and bought To Kill a Mockingbird and preordered Go Set a Watchman.

Then I made my usual run through Barry Hugart's titles to request that they be made available on Nook and ZOMG! The Adventures of Master Li and Number Ten Ox are out for Nook!

So last night I read TKaM, which greatly eased my mind about GSaW after all the confusing, nasty rumors that have been floating around regarding that prequel. Even if it's a tenth of the book TKaM is, GSaW will be a real treat.

Then this morning, I re-read the best book in the world: Bridge of Birds (it's the first book of the Master Li and Number Ten Ox trilogy). Any D&D/Pathfinder player should appreciate this wild adventure full of myth and magic, sorcery and scholarship, greed and guile and goodness. I swear, after being ill for two weeks, that book finished the cure and I can now whip my weight in tigers.

Oh yes, almost finished the last of the Black Company books. I need to polish off the final 50 or so pages just to pick up anything I missed in reversing through the final chapters for 3 hours because of that damned broken Nook V1. Think I'll wait until the Bridge of Birds afterglow has faded, though. Much as I adore Glen Cook, Barry is the master. Damn.

The thing I notice is the missing Crave Case on the equipment list.

This makes me picture a Treppa and flock of penguins all dancing in rhythm to a jaunty tune.

You've seen my videos.

That's Ms. Treppa if you're nasty.

Freudian typo.

I do think you're onto something there.

I'm glad the Tordek clan is unharmed (shaken, not stirred) and hope the Tacticslion pride feels better soon.

I always enjoy reading your Kidlet updates, Lord Synos. You so obviously adore your little dude and enjoy every moment you can with him. Well done.

I think it is important to also point out that if you are 50+ (like I am) and grew up playing D&D in the 70's and 80's it's easy to delude yourself into thinking that how it was then is how it is now,but it really isn't anymore. Most people get into the hobby, these days, because they were at a MTG tourney, or Pokémon tourney, Local game store's "board game Saturday" event, or other social gathering (comic convention, midnight book release, game convention, or other event).

That's a good point, and rather a shame. My friends and I got into D&D in 1977 because we overheard a game at University and asked the GM if we could join. It sounded like a blast and we were all into SF and fantasy. We had a mixed M/F group and loads of fun. I'm still close with many of that gaming group today. But I can say with confidence that none of us would have gone to a game shop, so we'd have never had a chance to overhear the fun or join this addictive hobby.

It's encouraging that schools have gaming clubs and that some teachers are introducing gaming to improve math, social, and organizational skills, but I guess it is somewhat more isolated than it was when I started playing.


Methinks the bot doth protest too much.

Sorry about dropping a bunch of stuff in and botting some PC's for a scene, but nobody seemed to have much idea of what actually happened in Morocco. So Ralph did a great job as Captain and we're set up for the next part of the action! Thanks for the setup, Leo. ;)


OLADOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!


We aren't required to report on post-coital literary pillow talk here, are we? :o


We're having yo-yo weather - bouncing between zero and fifties every other day. Our eight inches of snow finally melted day before yesterday, but we got a tiny fresh dusting and a lovely layer of ice to hack off the car. Hooray!

I love snow, but I *do* wish they plowed in the subdivision. I can get all over the metro area, but the 2 blocks from the entrance to the house are hazardous.

In fact, when the snow melted and refroze overnight into 2" of ice, I nearly slid sideways into a truck at the subdivision entrance. Stupid not-plowing!

Oh, to be in Vienna now that the New Year is here. <3


I've finished all the Dresden Files book and am impatiently awaiting the next. What impresses me about Butcher is his extensive plotting. He's written a bunch of books that are all tightly tied together, plot-wise. Something that looks like a throwaway piece of flavor turns out to be important eight books down the line. I've had to reread the series a couple of times to appreciate the fore-fore-fore-foreshadowing.

My God, the Swiss are geniuses! Has a culture ever done more with Cheese? I mean, Wisconsin tries, but they pale in comparison to the Swiss.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

No worries! Life interferes with fantasy sometimes. It sucks, but there it is.

Have a happy new year, everyone!


Wow, Puppet on a Chain takes me back. I read a lot of Alastair MacLean as a kid, a long, long time ago.

Woo! What's your agenda? Don't forget to give it to your credit card company beforehand.

A belated Merry Christmas (and Boxing Day) to you all, and an early Happy New Year!

My PBE (removing racial and level gains, of course) is 26! Holy cow.

Here's TT's Introductory Recap for the noobs.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

DSX and I followed the your creation rules and we both picked CRB classes that filled in gaps. We worked with you on a joint backstory so we could be introduced at the same time.

We've both kept our characters simple and enjoyed the game rather than getting all weird with complicated characters.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Mahorfeus is the other.

Agreed, everyone should be copasetic with it.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

pinvendor is interested and not currently wrapped up in many pbps. There may be another, but he's not online right now, and I don't want to speak for him until he says for sure.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Oh, of course it would have to be at the right time. :) Just wanted to mention that we knew a couple of people who might fit in when that time arrives.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

If we need more players, DSX and I have a friend (maybe two) who would be interested.

Just so you know, Rashida's visit to the Vatican occurred during the events in Morocco. It is past tense at the point we're picking up.


Thanks, mott. Darn FB and its selective update list. *shakefist*


Tim or Paris, do you guys have a summary of submissions so far, so we can fill in categories that are short? I hate to make you do that work, but they were really handy in the past.

Alternatively, you could do as my parents used to do and regift something you had gotten as a white elephant gift on a previous occasion. In fact, in town we lived in while I was growing up, there was a "tradition" amongst the churchfolk that there was one specific item, I forget what it was, that was handed around every year as a white elephant gift. It had changed hands every year for over 20 years at the time we moved away.

I believe those are called "mathoms".


These.

Or any of these, I guess.

Have a fun (and safe) trip!
