I really am used to double shifts now.

I hear you. An 8-hour shift seems short to me.

What really tear me up is 16 on, 8 off, 16 on. That's a stone b+###. This weekend was 8 on, 8 off, 16 on. Not as bad, but oh well.

By the way, aeglos' appearance reminds me of something. Any of you world builders out there want an excellent template for a tempestuous confederation of micro states do yourself a favor and read up on the Holy Roman Empire. Neither Holy, Roman, or an empire, it nonetheless defined politics in Central Europe for centuries. The member states were a fascinating hodgepodge of governing styles, and the Elector system of awarding the Imperial title was textbook political chicanery. American schools don't even mention this period in history (at least mine didn't). It's fascinating research material for anyone who wants high-level political theater in their games.
Not even to explain "Third" in Third Reich as a context of the World War II?!

for our Americans:

1. Reich:
The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation,
lasted for almostexactly 1000 years until Napoleon conquered it ( itwasn't in good shape anyway)
Nationalversammlung: Revolution and 1. Democray after napoleon lasted for one summer in 1849
2.Reich:
The Prussian-German Empire, mid-19th century Prussian King Wilhelm the first and his chancelor Bismark united Germany (without Austria) and declared Wilhelm Emporer.
lasted until his grandson Wilhelm ll. and World War 1
Weimar Republic: 2. Democracy lasted until 1933 and the Nazis took over
3. Reich:
proclaimed by Hitler and he bosted it would last 1000 years again
Bonner Republic: 3. Democracy from 1945 until German unity 1989
Berliner republic: since then

and when you all come visiting I can show you the remains of that time like one of the palaces of Emporer Friedrich the First "Barbarossa" here in my hometown.

Like all the Emporers of the Holy Roman Empire he had no permanat residence and was constantly on the move from Empirial Free City to Free City.

And I can show you the city hall of Frankfurt (called "the Roman") where the 7 Lord Electors gathered to elect the next King of Germany, who could be meade Holy Roman Emporer of the German Nation by the pope.

On the balcony of the Roman the new King would present himself to the gathering people and throw a big party with dozens of roasted oxens
German soccer national teams who win international titels present themself today on the same balcony with their trophy.

the German states and our Federal system goes back to the borders during the holy roamn empire

Job situation in Rhein-Main is extremly good (one of the Areas with the biggest growth in europe) so no one in my wider family or my school class has moved away,

even looking at second or third cousins,no one related to me lives more than than 15 miles away

on the Ciry or Country discussion on the last pages:
Country Boy myself, I could not live in a city, I have fun in cities for a few days but get tired of them quickly, I need green around me.
M y village has 3500 people, the muncipality 13.000 in 7 villages.
But we are at the border of the Rhein-Main metropolitan Area around Frankfurt with nearly 6 million people, so I am not that rural and we are well provided with everything you need

Recipe for „Grüne Soße“ the Hessian National Dish (well, one of them anyway)

Green Sauce is a cold sauce from various dairy products and Eggs with 7 herbs (so basically it is a white sauce with green sprinkles)
You serf it with cooked potatoes. In Frankfurt (where the dish is originated) they like to serf boiled beef or Schnitzel but I prefer it the way it is served in my region: only with potatoes, which makes it vegetarian, I guess.

How to make it:
Step 1 basic sauce
- 1,5 cups of Quark/curd cheese
- 1 Cup of Schmand/Smetana (if not available use sour cream)
I use the Quark low fat and the Schmand full fat
- 0,5 cups yoghurt (pure, no fruit or sugar added)
- 1 Teaspoon of Mustard
- 1 Tablespoon of neutral Oil (I use Rapeseed or Sunflower)
- 2 Tablespoons of wine vinegar
- Pepper and Salt (over salt at this stage, the eggs will neutralize the salt taste later)
Mix everything with a whisk and add Milk until it has a viscosity halfway between pure yoghurt and milk

Step 2 the Herbs:
Traditionally 7 herbs are used:
parsley, chives (lots of), chervil, borage (a bit) ,sorrel (a bit), garden cress, and salad burnet
If you stray from that, it is no longer an Original Frankfurter Grüne Soße, but I am not from Frankfurt and in my home Valley we don’t take that to serious, some of the 7 herbs are not available in the garden at Easter time anyway. Chives and Parsley are the important basics. Chervil adds a lot of flavor.
I like to add Bears Garlic while it is growing in the garden.
Some people add Dill, Shallots or small amounts of lemon balm, mint or thyme
I would not recommend Lovage, Basil or Rosemary because thy overshadow all other herbs to much
> Cut the herbs to tiny pieces and add them to the sauce

Step 3 The Eggs:
- 5-6 hardboiled eggs cut into smallish pieces and stir them carefully into the sauce

Step 4 Eating:
- Put potatoes on your plate, mash them with a fork, put sauce over them

Step 5 Profit:
You may like to have a Jägermeister afterwards to digest it

Hi everyone,

Umberto Eco passed away :-(

I read that earlier. Very sad. I loved In the Neme of the Rose and Focault's Pendulum. I have an unread copy of Baudilino somewhere. I'm going to have to find it.

Rose and Pendulum are his best by far, some of his last books I could not get trough. Baudolino was a great for me because it features the founder of my hometown: Emporer Friedrich the I. from House Hohenstaufen nicknamed "Barbarossa"

I have heard "The Name of the Rose" is not very popular in America, here in Germany it is considered one of the best movies of all time

I wasn't very popular here, no, but there are some in America who agree with your opinion. I absolutely loved it.
I loved the book and the movie. FP was a disappointment for me. I really enjoy his essays and shorter writings. I have his two big medieval books and his history of aesthetics and they're interesting. I have some other of his novels, but haven't tackled them yet.

his newspaper colums are published as small books here in Germany, some are quit hilarious, like the one with the salmon in the hotel refrigiator

I made Lentil soup, the hard way, with watering lentils for hours. But the finished product was not very good, the soup was watery, did not thicken, tasted blant.
While we ate I lament my culinary shortcommings and pondered what may have went wrong,
than my boy, with all the diplomacy skills of a two year old, said:
"Marlon likes it,daddy. tastes good!"

I love my Boy

The biggest problem is translation. Not Italian to English. Translating AMOUNTS from 'Grandma' to 'actual measurements'. ;)

yeah, I know the problem, Grandmas usually cook by experience not by messuring, which makes it freaking hard to recook. I think Grandmas worldwide do this on purpuse

OK. Of course the post eaten was a long one, so here goes:

I was thinking of a good main villain for my Spelljammer type game. I came up with a lich named the Maggot Lord. He dwells in an ancient giant wasp hive that circles the Void, near the strands of the Muck region. I'm debating wether he would command live giant wasps or reanimated ones.

I'm also trying to recall the name of the alien race that Marvel had in some comics that implanted larvae in people ( The Breed maybe?). I think they would make an interesting evil race that could be in collusion with the Maggot Lord.

With name like that maybe he could be worm that walks instead of lich?

Lich is a town here in hessia, they have beer
