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.

Mahorfeus is the other.

Agreed, everyone should be copasetic with it.

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.

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.

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".

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

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.

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. :(

And this one is a classic.

no Xmas songs before thanksgiving.

For the record, my choir started rehearsing for our Christmas concert in September. If you're counting, that's 4 months worth of Silent Night.

I have a few college friends who are now music teachers, and one of them commented to me. "No Christmas music before Thanksgiving? We've been rehearsing it since the school year started, and I've been planning the repertoire for the holiday concert since June."

The struggles of being a musician :)

At least you don't have to sing "Pomp and Circumstance" a bajillion times at every graduation.

We thwarted the nefarious von Ryuko's sinister plans on the island, remember? And I think it's only been about a week since then. *headdesk*. But yeah, they've had some time to gather their wits and resources. It would be good to go on the attack, and MM/G are the bad guys they know about right now.

Vorian starred in 'Pathways Into Darkness'? Cool!

Snagging something sarcophigal and fleeing might be a good way to get to Rome, yeah. It might be a good idea if everyone gave their characters a bit of thought on what super power to develop/discover/reveal during the process.

OK, currently:

Meowselmom and Gahiji are en route to Egypt in Vorian's ship, Virago. They have on board three sarcophagi that Gahiji thinks are important to the 'evil contingent' of the Massri clan: Apep, Set, and another. He thinks. He's not sure who is really there, but three elaborate sarcophagi when most of the bad/neutral guys have already been found seems promising to him. Of course, the good guys have not been found, which is why the Massri avatar balance is leaning toward evil. Ma'at, though neutral, is all about balance and truth and does not want to see the elimination of the good avatars.

Meowselmom/Gahiji attacked a fuel depot in Morocco, raining destruction upon the populace and pressing the able-bodied young adults into service aboard Virago.

Our main batch of heroes is aboard the airship headed to Morocco to follow the baddies.

Taraz and Mimi are meeting with his sister.

Mahorfeus has used the last of his ichor and is afraid his lack of shadow will cripple and kill him.

We have a lot of options to get to Rome. We can go there in hopes of helping Vorian become whole-souled. Or we can go after Morocco, fleeing there for refuge after grabbing a sarcophagus. Or grab Meows' mom and hold her captive in her helmet. We need to destroy Virago's railgun because it's ridiculously OP. In fact, MM and G could have destroyed it firing it just for fun, especially with a novice crew. They may not have realized they needed cooldown time.

Maybe Cassie traps MM in a crystal/tube thingie like she did her husband. Maybe she seduces Gahiji away from MM (unlikely with the sarcophagi involved).

Maybe Virago blows up and MM hitches a ride on Gahiji, making the combination more insane. If Virago blows, will the sarcophagi be destroyed?

Vorian may also be able to use something in Rome to restore him or replace the ichor.

Who is the mysterious man that was following Rashida and the tiefling? What is he doing now that they have left? Is he related to Vorian's shadowy tormentor?

What would the literati of Paizo recommend for someone who wants to read more high fantasy, but also spends a lot of time reading pretentious shiznit and therefore can't stomach flimsy prose?

Anything by Gene Wolfe, particularly There Are Doors (for the pretention). The tales of Sevarian and Latro are very readable and the prose is toothsome.

Of course, there's always Barry Hugart's Bridge of Birds and friends. Fantasy doesn't get much higher.

I'm reading Farley and Kittredge's Advanced English Grammar. It might sound like an odd read, but it's a relief to read grammar rules and rationale instead of endless complaints about improper apostrophization and comma splices in modern life.

That's the problem with them, you can see the cogs and gears poking out all over the place.

And it is so structurally repetitive.

You forgot the heavy-handed foreshadowing and symbolism, because everyone knows you must BEAT YOUNG adults OVER the HEAD with the POINT. I was ready to set Katniss afire meself.
