Ack! Finally felt better enough to post and we had a power outage due to massive thunderstorms. :(
Well, I managed to catch up on PMs for now, but now I have to make dinner so I can pick at it and pretend to eat. Gorram flu. :/
Hopefully I will be able to get some game posts up later on tonight.

Oh, and I started watching Voltron last night. Loving it so far. Looking forward to watching more. :)

Our group was exploring the dungeon and was surprised by two brick golems getting up from the floor. My spellcaster wasn't able to get out of range in time and the GM looked gleeful and asked if I knew what happened next.
Me: I get brick slapped?

Dunno, that's all I can think of at the moment. I'm really tired so if there was another obvious answer I totally missed it.

Also, I feel oddly productive today. This is what happens when my husband has to work all day and I end up with unexpected free time to write game updates. :P

It's obvious each cat clearly thought the other cat had the better spot so they traded.

Well, they are both insanely jealous. And they had quite the fight earlier because I bought a new toy for them and they both wanted to play with it. But it's still weirding me out. :)

Arthur looks up from where he was fiddling with some sort of program "ah yes, Arthur, that's me, sorry, I was distracted by this figure here, there's a tremendous amount of potential power in this spot here, why if we can keep our hole with just the slightest of openings, a scant dozen microns across for example, we could draw power from neigh infinite parallel worlds, converting the mass of those planes into energy at a rate of 89.9 terajoules of power per gram harvested, you could power a light bulb for thirty thousand years with such power. And with four times ten to the seventy ninth atoms in a universe of comparable size and density to ours we could harvest an untold amount of power!" He blinks a few times and says "ah... But um... that's a project for a later date...."

this is why you don't leave Arthur out of a conversation :P

Andromeda walks up to him, and stands right in front of his face so he can't just ignore what she's saying, and punctuates her words with occasional pokes to the chest, just to make sure she still has his attention. "No. And in case you missed it the first time, NO. Would it work? Absolutely. Do you know what happened to the last people who tried it? They cooked their own universe. Because even a tiny pinpoint hole left open will do that. And do you know what happened to the idiots before them? They got slaughtered by an army of cyborgs from the next universe over. And then the cyborgs left the door open and cooked both universes. That is absolutely, positively not what is going to happen here. Because I am going to stop you. It's what I do. Stop people from unraveling spacetime. Do you have any idea how absurdly many beings there are who wake up every morning and think hey, you know what would be a great idea today? Let's play with the fabric of the universe and see what happens. If I didn't have the ability to step outside of time, I would literally never be able to get to all of them. And I seriously miss having free time, okay?! So, no, you do not get to be one of those people. Not today. You do not want to be making more work for me right now. Got it?" she asked. Her eyes had switched to their draconic aspect midway through her rant, and she was clearly not pleased. "So no, it is not a project for a later date. It is a project for never."

Forums Are Way Too Long. It was the title of the original thread started by someone complaining about well, the forums being too long. And being the perverse crowd that we are, we made it into the longest thread possible. Until it had to be moved to a new thread and so on. This is the sixth one.

The more this stupid murderer plot goes on, the more frustrated I get, and not at all in a good way. Like, I want to give up on the whole dang thing and walk away.

I totally get that and I don't blame you one bit for being frustrated. This plot went off the rails a while ago, and having multiple people running it certainly hasn't helped that. This latest wrench in the works was actually designed to speed up the resolution, believe it or not. I am trying to help. The way I see it, there are two ways to quickly wrap up this storyline.

Option A. You stick with the trap plan. Hey, it's a good plan, and it actually has a better chance without Illy. There are three girls in the room with Ace who all meet the criteria that they know the murderer uses better than Illy did. Convince Tami, Tyrrin, or Alys to take her place and proceed as planned.
Option B. Ace decides to throw caution to the wind and makes telepathic contact with the unconscious Ginni. She might be pissed about it later, but he can follow the link between Ginni and the murderer and finally catch the bastard.
Whichever option you choose, I expect this story to be resolved in short order. We are not dragging this out one bit more.

Desk kitty can't decide if he wants me to keep scratching his ears, or if he wants to eviscerate me. Pretty sure the answer is yes. ;P

Really grooving on the American Authors album. New music is a happy thing. :)

Also, I don't care if you tell me that my taste in music sucks. I have eclectic taste in music. I like a little bit of everything, so everyone ends up telling me that eventually. :P

Kidlet is outdoing himself today. After we baked and ate the cake, he went to the store and used some of his birthday money to buy flowers for me. My favorite kind too. And then he helped me make dinner. He's a really sweet kid sometimes. My day doesn't even suck now. That totally cheered me up after the unpleasant drama of having to kick my former bestie out of my game.

Kidlet is learning how to bake, so today I taught him how to make a flourless chocolate cake. The cake is already gone. It was delicious. :)

Woo! FInished sorting and cleaning the kidlet's room! Turned his closet into a nerf armory, which was made much easier by his willingness to get rid of the pile of toys that was in the way of that. He did very well this year. We have definitely had less conflicts about getting rid of things the last couple of years through this. It helps that I have been able to step back and let him actually make the decisions now. Well, that and reminding him for like two months ahead of time that if he keeps more toys there will be less room for the ones he actually wants to play with and he's responsible for keeping his room clean now. :)

Sorry, man. I won't claim to understand. I love Rennfaire. We go in full costume every year. I really look forward to it. But I know that some faires are better than others. So, sorry your experience is sucky and I hope that it at least sucks less than you're afraid it will.

Desk kitty is freaking out because I put a footstool under the desk. He has decided that he must now nap on the desk instead of under the desk because he doesn't want to share his space with strange new thing. :)

It's been a busy weekend so far. Kidlet's birthday was on Friday. We took him and his best friend to Dave & Busters. They had a blast. And then we took him to Outback for a birthday dinner. Hard to believe that he's already a teenager. :)
Yesterday my dad came for a visit. He was a jerk, as per usual. But at least it was a short visit. And then we went to the Salute to America concert at Greenfield village. It was the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Army Field Band. It was an awesome concert. The finale was the 1812 overture with actual cannons, which was every bit as cool as I'd been hoping. And the fireworks were really good too.
Today the kidlet and his dad are at my father-in-law's cabin on the lake having a barbecue and setting off some fireworks tonight. I stayed home because I had really aggravated my sprained ankle. Second trip to the lake I've missed because of this injury. :(
But at least I am having a nice quiet day of rest. There has been napping and reading and shortly there will be downton abbey and knitting. :)

Unfortunately no water means no coffee since I didn't fill the kettle last night. I might need to brave the stairs again (stairs + sprained ankle = pain) in order to go get some coffee. And a bathroom. The latter gets more important by the minute. :P

Do you have ice trays in the freezer? Kettles are good at turning ice into water. :-P

(Living in earthquake country, you are taught all the sources of potable water most people don't think about. But the toilet tank is definitely a last-minute, "Don't drink that just to make coffee" option...)

Hmm. Yes, we do have ice. This is a good option that I did not think of! Thanks, NH! :)

Soon there will be coffee. Life is better with coffee.

So far this morning: gave kidlet one of his presents a day early so he could have time to play it and the computer crashed so he couldn't play his new game, the grounds care people decided that they would just throw everything all over when cleaning the gutters so now my balcony is covered in ick that I have to clean up and we have to throw away the bird seed that we had set out as well, they turned off the water three hours earlier than they said they would for the repairs to the sewer line they're doing today so I didn't even get to brush my teeth, and yesterday's drama with my dad may have cost us the ability to get tickets to the event I wanted to go to on Saturday.

Some days you just wonder why you even got out of bed. >.<

Nothing says summer like sitting out on the balcony with a nice iced coffee. :)

Today is a high of 72 with a nice cooling breeze. I love it. I wouldn't even hate summer if it was always like this.

Dami, I usually don't stat my characters. At all, period. I just have a vague idea of what they can do and add it all up on the fly if necessary. Not a problem. But with Ephebe and Andromeda I need to have a solid framework to give me the exact nature of their limits because once you add time powers into the mix it's super easy to get way OP way fast without intending to. I don't mind Ephebe being OP now because she's in NPC territory as a teacher, and also she's a Plot Device...rather literally. But Andromeda is back at the beginning in PC territory. So I have to know what she can and can't do. With some tweaks to reflect the whole Champion thingy. So I don't accidentally steamroll over anyone else's characters.

Also, regarding Time Stop....bloody hell, I keep forgetting how watered down it's gotten already! (Sorry, having a grognard moment here.)

Time Thief seems like exactly what you want. Non arcane, super speed, quick heal wounds. I think you can fix the pitfalls we had with it before.

Yeah, that's the class that I pilfered abilities from for Ephebe. It can do the speed thing but only in short bursts. It's more prince of Persia than quicksilver.

I think I am probably going to just have to start from scratch because what I want is more of a watered down time stop as an at will ability.

This is the problem when you start trying to rebuild a character who is basically the same person as another character but a little bit different. :P

Lyn - I just spied this little third-party offering in the Paizo Blog. It might be worth a peek for some 'speedster' abilities that could be unique to Andromeda.

LINKY

Thanks, Dalesman! I picked that up and just read through it, and that's actually perfect to use as a base with just a few tweaks here and there. That saves me hours of work. Well worth the $1.49. :)

I do love that we live next door to a grocery store. It makes things easier on days like these.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Still sick. Still can't talk. Trying to muster up enough energy for a brief grocery run, kidlet in tow of course. The alternative is sending him on his own with a list. He does well with short lists, but I'm a bit concerned at how well he could manage with a more complex list.

Well, I had my voice back for a little while, but it's already starting to go again. I sound all gravelly and squeaky at the same time, like Chewbacca just inhaled a bunch of helium. Summer colds....blech.

The kidlet is enjoying the beginning of his summer vacation at least. For this week we've given him unlimited screen time and no set wake up time. So kid heaven. But he likes routine, so by next week he'll actually be glad of the list of chores and things to do before he can have screen time no matter how much he'll grumble for the first couple of days. :)

Hmm. I might need to come up with a new nickname for him. He'll be thirteen in a couple of weeks and it seems weird to call him a kidlet at that age. On the other hand, habit is a tough thing to break. So I may just keep things how they are. I mean really, I'll probably still be calling him 'baby doll' and 'sweet pea' when he's thirty, let alone thirteen, so he might as well get used to it. Being embarrassing is part of the parental job description. ;P

I've got the attention span of a rabbit on meth and even I'm tired of the repetitions. We get it already. The rooms are small. The couple doesn't agree on anything. All three options look eerily similar. Oh, what will they choose?

Hmm. I think I might have run out of attention span even for house hunters. Time to go to bed. :)

Managed to fall asleep last night out of pure exhaustion. Still tired. Attempts to nap are a failure. So I get another day on too little sleep and if I don't manage to totally wear myself out most probably another night like the one before last where I get to see all the hours on the clock as they tick by. Awesome! Sigh. I already miss the constant dull ache I could sleep through. This sharp tingling throbbing is driving me fracking nuts. It's an ankle. It hurts. Fine. I can deal with that. But does it really have to do it in such a way that I can't ever sleep? I thought all those naps last week were for healing. Nope. That was preemptive sleep. Apparently. :/

Sorry for whining. I whine here so I don't bug people in real life. Gotta have somewhere to complain. :)
