Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Woops, sorry about the silence. Rest/level is great with me, especially since it gives us time to recover our lost players.


Presence is on it. He's turning off the webservers for a moment now. Maybe try back in a few minutes.


I want to party with anarchists.


Eminem doesn't seem to like Moby much. Ain't the whale's fault he's bald.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

I forgot to go mythic, arg, will level up and post sneakitude. Crap.

Leandro snorts. "Indeed. Lead on, Leclerc, and you will be fine. Either we will save you from your enemy, or we will not. You can but die; trust in the gods and look to a better life beyond the veil."


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

OK by me. Leandro should have healed one point spontaneously so is only down one. Others might need it more.


Hah! But did you enjoy Moby at all?

I'm reading Les Miserables for the first time. Man, is it depressing. Nobody ever gets a break. Hugo is brutal to his characters. This is not a book to read when you're feeling down.


The first set is an absolute gem; the second is workmanlike and has its own charms. As much as I like Merlin, he does not live up to his romantic father.

The Doors of His Face, The Lamps of His Mouth is an excellent Zelazny short story collection, including the lovely A Rose for Ecclesiastes.

Sorry, currently flattened by flu.


You can doo eeet!

I've discovered that if you need a hot buttered rum, coconut rum makes it delicious. I may go after the flu again if I get this every time.

Ümläut the dwarven fighter (1st edition).


Astral Wanderer: Have you read Zelazney's Amber books? They start out modern but become fantastic. The first, Nine Princes in Amber has some dated real groovy, daddy-o language but the writing is excellent, characters engaging, and the plot ultimately Byzantine enough for anyone.

I finished The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and finally started The Turn of the Screw, only to find that I have already read Screw. I'm rereading it because it was rather confusing and I don't recall the ending.

Not sure what to read next.


Oh, no worries. I'm always nervous about a new series from a favorite author. I either love 'em or absolutely hate 'em.


Awwwww...


Early 2015 sounds dandy. I don't know anything about this next volume, but love the title.


For some reason, I'm reading The Tenant of Wildfeld Hall. It's a break from all the Dummies books and textbooks, plus it completes my Bronte sister collection. Their heads look great on my wall.

Dammit, Limeylongears!

I'm open to fleeing! I'll keep tossing healing and protective stuff which will be useful either way. Remember, we all have an extra 30' of movement for the next minute. ;)

I don't have another align weapon for Varlis' bow, but if somebody flanks with Emerion, all his damage can get through now.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

And back to normal with a 5 and 3.... :D


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

I was thinking Trickster (natural for rogue) but haven't seriously examined the options yet. i'll figure it out by tomorrow, I hope.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Above 10, woo!

Above 5, woo!

>_<

Hey, Mythic is in the New PRD!


Welcome back, Ryuko. Your Mafia games spawned a few others that were hellaciously fun. The prospect of being in one of yours is thrilling!


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Holy cow, it's already Labor Day!?

I'm not a big elf fan, but I did enjoy Queen of Thorns, so don't give up hope.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Or condolences.


If you love good books but you're broke (like me), check out this site. The Harvard Classics (5 feet of seminal Western literature) are here, as well as many other.

Free ebook treasure!

Note: Some of these (the newer works, generally) are only available for online reading, not easy download to an e-reader.

I love Sylvia, my elven alchemist.

3d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 4) = 13


Soup?

There's a time and place for blood, Kil. The time is bath time. The place is filling the tub.

It's either you or cheapy, and everybody knows that cheapy is innocent and pure.


Except it's broken right now.

I blame Oladon and cheapy.

Ooh, love and arson. It's going to be a great day!


Huh. I just downloaded Heidi from PG, along with an anthology containing Benito Cereno. I'll hit those right after I finish a re-read of Moby Dick.

I also downloaded the autobiography of an executioner along with several books of strange folklore and military gear/tactics. They might be useful in-game.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Dammit, wrong pbp name. I guess we now have an elven alchemist with the party.


Oh, right! He's awesome!

He makes other appearances, IIRC.

So... Dawn of the Dreadfuls, Dreadfully Ever After, or Classic Regency romance now with ultraviolent zombie mayhem?

I downloaded the ePUB of P&P&Z (sounds like a sandwich) from the local library and just finished it, silly thing that it is. The best part is the reader's guide at the end. Now that I know it's permissible to take a classic novel and embellish it with a few new sentences and a sprinkling of changes, my first book will be out before too much longer!

OK, the best part is when Elizabeth lops off Lydia's head, except she doesn't really. But didn't we all want to? Confess!


I'm trying to pound a couple of short stories into submission, but they are not cooperating.

Got Gulliver of Mars by Edwin L. Arnold off Project Gutenberg, myself. Looking forward to it!

Gutenberg is now organized by topic. They have a nice "Sci-Fi" section, including Astounding Stories from 1930 and 1931!

I don't recall exactly from Moby-Dick but in "Benito Cereno" you need at least four clauses marked off by commas per sentence.

I could do that but don't want to be haunted by the ghost of James Thurber.

Made cheese-garlic twice baked potatoes last night. Three of us ate 6 potatoes.

My cooking is not a diet aid. :(

Well, fantasy mashed with Jane Austen is a growing genre.

Cayden help us.

I'm stressed, so currently reading an Agatha Christie mystery. It's mind candy. Sue me.

I have a soft spot for Agatha Christie. They just don't write mysteries like that anymore. Murder is so much cooler when it is committed by rich people in a setting containing a finite number of people, all of whom have motives.

If I'm ever murdered, I hope it is like that.

I really enjoyed them and was disappointed to find only two Christie mysteries available on Project Gutenberg.

And I'm sure that can be arranged, CH.


Read 'Heart of Darkness', 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Sense and Sensibility', and have moved on to 'Agnes Grey'.
