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.

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.

Oh, right, children's books. I read The Wolves of Willoughby Chase while insomniac Tuesday night. It was great fun!

Kids books are the best.


Just finished Ancillary Sword. If you liked Ancillary Justice, you'll probably like this one a lot, too.


Hoo, boy, I don't have much to go on. I seem to remember a book/story set in a valley across which the shadow of a tall mountain fell each evening. For some reason, somebody feared this shadow and ended up dying when the shadow fell across their sickbed (I think).

I can't recall the rest of the story or the style. Poe? Lovecraft? Spyri? Ring a bell for anyone?

Tinkergoth, have you read Glen Cook's Garrett, P.I. series? It's fantasy noir hard-boiled detective stories in a really interesting setting. Not Bond parody, more Sam Spade.

Found out yesterday that Denver has a traditional German Christmas market (Christkindlmarkt) near downtown. We'll go next weekend. I'm so excited! Haven't been to one since Munich/Innsbruck about 25 years ago. It's not going to be quite the same without the beautiful old town squares, but it'll be fun anyway.


It's almost like she has no faith in people's intelligence or something.

I got it. So there.

Advanced notice? What is that? :P

Sal is a Chicago Latina. Her parents and grandparents were immigrants from Mexico (dunno about legality, didn't matter for her backstory).

They're in there somewhere, I'm sure. And of course, next week is almost completely open. Ah, the pros and cons of freelancing.

I'm around. Not used to this "working" stuff that is sucking up my time, but I'm here! :)

Geez, it's been like my hair is on fire and my *** is catching since Thanskgiving. Sorry for lack of posting. I really had not realized how long it has been.


Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Ack, sorry for the delay. Between 3 jobs and working out assiduously I've been enjoying 12-hour days and 3 hours of driving each day. I'm ready to collapse.


Rereading The Black Company books. So much goodness. They improve with age and re-reading.

I have a wicked yen to read Lord of Light, but Roger Zelazney's books are not available on Nook because of some awful family struggle. It's also out of print. It may be one of the few books I kept, but it's back in storage in St. Louis. :(

I wish I had a theme song.
