I get the day off from work I just don't get paid for it :/
Hmmm I didn't do any shark fishing all weekend....though the wind has been horrible here for the last two weeks making the water muddy and bringing in lots off seaweed...stupid weather.
I do love setting up around people with 10 to 12ft poles fishing for the same stuff I am only I'm using a 6 to 7ft pole and I'm the only one catching anything....probably adhere to the stupid belief that only big bait catches big fish...or no fish. I like to give them a snack big enough to be enticing but not so big to make a meal out of it....maybe I should make a paizo fishers thread I could talk to probably like 1 or 2 other people there or at least myself...
Alright all you fishing faithful I've got another one for you that comes straight from today!
I get home have a sandwich and start digging up my rods one ultralight to once again catch pompano or whiting (note I didn't catch either of these today). And one rod set for shark now most people when the set up for shark take a big rod and feel maybe 7 ft rod with a pretty heavy duty reel. Well not me! I go out with 8lb test line and a light rod made for trout and stuff of that nature. So I get back out went to Mexico beach again cast out my ultralight rig and catch a few catfish not sure why they are out so heavy right now it's actually irritating.
Finally I catch a pinfish well he gets cut up for the main event. Cast out maybe 5 to 10 minutes later my rod bends over and I start to hear drag being pulled I quickly switch rods and end up fighting a fish for at least 20 to 40 minutes I'm letting this fish take out line to wear it down....well I look down and see I've got no line left I can see metal never ever a good thing. So I finally start leading this giant shark only thing that this could have been. Well I see some more innocent bystanders hanging out in the water so I manage to get him to turn back the other way. I've got him in "close" or at least closer than he was before when my line snaps. [EXPLETIVE DELETED] i just lost steel leader and my whole rig it snapped somewhere above my shock like 50/60 lb test to protect against abrasion and steel leader for teeth. Well I'm tired I spent all day at the plant lifting 10 to 15 pound equipment all day so of course I re-rig and get some more cut bait on my hook.
Not 5 minutes later rod bends over again! So I begin the whole process once more. At first he swims into shore and I can see a 3 to 4 foot shark cruising along in maybe knee to waist deep water when he suddenly flicks his tail and all I hear is the sound o line being pulled out of my reel.
Well I probably go back and forth with this guy for my father in law says about 45 minutes when I finally get him to the shore line and we are able to grab him by the tail and get him out of the water!!! He's about 4 ft long and somewhere between 50 to 60 lbs I'm still trying to figure out what kind he was we let him go to swim another day damn that was awesome :)
I like pushing my rigs far further than they were intended to go but I almost bit off more than I could chew this time I'm thinking a rod and reel slightly larger than this one just to make sure I don't exhaust the shark to much and end up killing him. Almost thought this guy wouldn't make it which would have sucked they are so cool. Actually a great white was recently caught in my area which is weird since they don't normally come over here.

Even better all this was from shore I didn't even have to get my feet wet for the sharks.
As far as I can tell there are three types of "hammerhead" sharks. All three are protected and have to be released, but it's still cool to see one.
Mexico Beach, Florida
Was using an ultralight rod and feel set on the bonnethead for a moment there didn't think I was going to get him in. Funny thing is the other two sharks were on a larger rod and we're both smaller.
Alright so I had this big long post about my fishing adventures over the last week and lost the post so here is the short version.
I went and caught some whiting and pompano on Saturday and caught three sharks on Tuesday. Two foot bonnethead (looks like a hammerhead), a true hammerhead, and a blacktip. All in all pretty damn cool hoping to catch some more on Sunday. Had some o the shark today smoked pretty good.
So just to show everyone I have the most amazing wifey ever. There I am having a s#+~ day at work and I'm talking to her on the phone and she so nonchalantly goes
Amazing wifey: You know we still need to watch the avengers when do you want to go?
So later tonight we are watching it and I repeat I have the most amazing wife ever in the entire multiverse.

Since I only play via PBP and my computer is dead all I have is my iPad hero lab to make a character. Otherwise I'm sitting here for hours double checking a crappy word document character sheet I jury-rigged together. It saves me so much time best thing I've ever won for my gaming needs.
But since this is about the Pathfinder: Unchained book....IM EXCITED WHY CANT I THROW MY MONEY AT YOU AND GET IT NOW!!!!?!?!?!?!!!?

Jian Xi was born to a woman whose name he never knew to a father who never even knew he was born. His mother died in child birth and Jian Xi was left at a temple dedicated to both Shizuru and Tsukiyo. He spent his childhood cleaning and caring for the temple learning katas and how to protect oneself from harm.
He never truly fit in with the monks though they were always focused on inner peace and of wisdom. Jian Xi wanted to explore and test himself against others so he set out to find someone who could train him. His journey took him all across Lingshen looking for a master. He finally found one in a small village in Quain named Shan Feng. At first the ageing master refused Jian xi thinking he just like all the other want to be trainees he had seen. Until he saw him stand up for a merchant being strong armed by some street thugs and saw something inside the teenager that changed his mind.
For the next couple of years they traveled the lands training Jian Xi began to learn about the abilities of Heaven's fury, an energy that he said was neither light nor dark but just is. Unfortunately his training is cut short one night they were ambushed by a group of oni and other vile creatures. Seeing how outnumbered they were Jian Xi was determined to die by his masters side, but Shan Feng would not allow his only pupil to die in such an ignoble way commanded him to run as he held them off. With tears stinging his eyes he does as commanded.
Spending the next year alone he tries to study on his own trying to hunt down any evil creature he can find. It is during this time he meets Jade Moon, after being told about an evil creature in the woods by some villagers he heads out to kill it. Upon arriving he instead discovers a beautiful woman with eyes the color of jade and skin pale as the moon, as he approached her he realized her foot was caught in a trap.
Forgetting the villagers warnings he rushes to her side only to see her pointed ears, small feet, and two tails. He rips open the trap and tears a strip of cloth from his shirt and wraps it around her ankle. As he was about to ask her name she gives way to her pain and blacks out. With a sigh he shrugs his shoulders and puts his arm underneath her and and lifts her up, trying not to focus on the feel of her body pressed agains him.
After a few hours, she wakes back up to being carried piggy back style by Jian Xi. She pretends to be asleep for a little while longer while observing her surroundings and him. After he feels her moving he stops, and let's her down. They set up a small camp and begin to talk. He learns her name and where she is from, instantly connecting.
After another day of travel they finally arrived at Jade Moon's village. At first everyone panicked thinking Jian Xi was there to attack. Quickly Jade Moon's mother Amaya calms the rest of the village down. She talked sense into them by pointing out the fact that he rescued her, regardless of the fact that she was in her natural form. That night they held a dinner celebrating their new quest he stays here learning about them and most importantly about Jade Moon. The two fall deeply in love and are soon married after a couple of years.
The two soon hear about King Huang's push to free Shenmen after talking to the village elders they are given permission to take the king' offer that way the village can be moved to this new kingdom. The village was dying and this might be the last nance it had, and with that the two left for the capital of Lingshen. Jian Xi hopes to find a new home for Jade Moon and his new family and also hopes to make a name for himself as a true swordsman continuing his training with Heaven's Fury.
Long black hair with streaks and highlights of red henna. His eyes are a deep mahogany brown almost black with flecks of amber. Wears black and gold clothes like an eclipse in honor of both Shizuru and Tsukiyo. When fighting he wears a porcelain mask with black and red markings similar to a fox.
Jian Xi is a passionate person caring for others and wanting to protect those who can't protect themselves. He is dedicated to his swordsmanship and practices when ever he can. Is extremely protective of Jade Moon and loves her with all his soul. Loves listening to her sing would lay there for hours and listen to her beautiful voice.

Alright so here's my basic set up. A kami/Ono hunter in training. His first job was to clear out a wicked spirit that was in the forest. Upon entering he finds a beautiful woman and instantly falls in love. This woman's name is Jade Moon and she is a kitsune the very creature they wanted him to destroy. She was just trying to protect the spirits remaining in the forest. realizing his mistake he apologizes to her when he goes to leave she joins him. They now instead protect others that can't protect themselves.
This is of course a very basic idea but it's a start. Cyra is out but we'll both really strt on our submissions tonight.
