Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Hoo boy. So many feelings here.

I gotta say, I've had someone try something pretty similar to what Vick just did to me during a PTSD flashback and...opposite of helpful. Longest freaking panic attack ever. :/

Characters are free to do as they like because fiction, but please, please, please do not ever do that to someone in real life. You can't 'shock' someone out of a panic attack because their fight or flight response has already gone totally haywire. You want to stay calm and speak softly, try to get the person to notice details about their current surroundings. This can help the person separate memory/fears from reality so they can calm down.

Thus endeth the public service announcement

And I'm sorry that the whole credit card thing has dragged out and is being such a pain in the butt to resolve. :(

TL, you're right, that character would fit in perfectly. :)
You're in if you want. PM me to work out the details.

Ack! Yes, totally missed it! You caught me just in time too before I logged off to go do the dreaded errands. ^.^

Ooh, sorry Vick. :(
I've had that happen (always with the long posts too because that gets maximum inconvenience) and it totally sucks.

Hmp. Some jerk stole my card number, and has been using it to make all sorts of terrible and frivolous purchases. Daggum thieves. They suck. Fortunately, all of those purchases were canceled. I feel your pain much after-the-fact, Freehold.
did you get your money back immediately?

Never actually lost money, from what I could tell. My bank stopped it pretty much immediately. My bank texted us, and, as I do not respond to unsolicited texts, I called them via the number on the back of my physical card. At that point, I was able to talk to a person and they had frozen all of the purchases, until I could verify them. I rejected all Except for the two that I had actually made that day. Go, Bank of America!

Unfortunately, it looks like I'll need to cast a suspicious eye at one of our favorite local resteraunts, considering that's the only recent place I let my card go out of sight. It's a shame.

The one time our card number got stolen without our knowledge, it did indeed turn out that it was a waitperson at one of the restaurants we frequented. Disappointing.

A few years ago, a friend and I both had our cards compromised around the same time (different banks). We decided it couldn't be a coincidence so compared our transaction histories. About two weeks prior we had gone out to lunch and paid separate checks using the cards in question. We gave that info to the banks, but have no idea if they were able to do anything with that.
Well, apparently this person was EXTREMELY careless. We filed the police report and within two days they'd made an arrest, and told us that the woman in question had skimmed over 20 cards over just a couple of weeks, used all of them, and it was child's play to track her down through just that -- comparing different cards from different banks and finding the common transactions.

O.o

I'm not sure if I'm more appalled by her actions or her stupidity....

I think that's just quite a bit more of a learning curve and system shock than I can do in my current state. Like GMing, it seems like if I was able to dedicate enough time between posts to shifting my paradigm I could get into it, but in the meantime I'll say thank you and decline.

No worries. I know it isn't for everyone. But I would have felt bad not at least making the offer knowing you were looking for a game. Best of luck finding something that's more your speed right now in a minimal amount of time. :)

I feel like getting back into PbP again lately, but...

1. I'm too depressed to run as a GM. I loved GMing my two sandbox Fallout Savage Worlds PBPs, but I don't have the creativity to react to 4-6 players, let alone the...10 or so I was juggling previously. I just would like to be a player for a while. It's so much easier, and sometimes more fun, and I need the fun to help the whole depression thing.

2. The recruitment process takes forever. Seriously. Like, I wanna play. Not "I wanna wait a month or so to hear back that someone else got chosen besides me for a game that will inevitably tank in about a month after that."

I can give you a spot in my game, but we are our own unique set of special snowflakes, so it may not be what you're looking for. :)

I closed recruitment a while ago because constantly bringing in newbies took too much time and attention away from running the game, but I can still bring folks in. I just only do it by recommendation these days. Or if it's someone I know. You (or any other Fawtly) can PM me if it's something you're interested in. And no offense taken if it's not. We know we're oddballs. :P

Now then, where to put Lucas, I would have him go check in on his sister but her player is putting her on standby
Hmm

I posted grim sitting down next to someone in the cafeteria but then Lang greeted me in (I think?) the hallway...

Forgot to respond to this earlier. You posted with Grim in the wrong cafeteria. He couldn't have been there. So Lang gave him an out by posting as if he were in the correct wing of the school. That's where he actually is. :)

Isn't one of Lyn's favorite sayings about this game 'something, something, lots of drama and heart ache leads to better stories?' lol

At its heart, this game is basically an exercise in creative writing. And the rules of writing are very clear on this subject. You make characters that are as compelling as you can manage and convince everyone else to care about what happens to them...and then make sure that most of what happens to them is absolutely awful. Because nobody wants to read a story where the hero(es) don't have to struggle against something. Themselves, circumstances, other people, life just generally not being fair....there's always something. That's the whole point of stories.

I can kinda go on about this all day. I've been obsessed with stories my whole life, with intense hyper focus of course. ^.^

TL;DR : ADD MOAR DRAMA!!! ;D

Yes, the neutral planes are as normal.

So a gate spell to Abbaddon would just go to a specific place in "hell"?
That's correct. It's like a 'neighborhood' in a larger city. :)
So if I tell someone to "go to Hell" should I also provide an address?

Probably. :)

But don't trust the lower planes GPS...it keeps steering people into bottomless pits, lakes of fire, and so on. ;P

Monkeygod wrote:
What lower planar cosmology are we using again? Hell, Abyss, Abaddon, etc? Is there anything special/different to fiendish planes specific to our setting?

The Lower Planes is basically all one big plane. Hell, the Abyss, and Abaddon are all basically sections of that plane, the divide being one that is more a matter of political/ideological difference than actual difference between devils, demons, and daemons. There is a sort of 'neutral' territory in the middle of the three which is what Ephebe and her aschen control (because nobody else wanted it), and there is a toll that has to be paid when folks want to take an army through to make war on another section.

Conversely, the same is true of Heaven, with different sections all actually being part of one larger plane.

Chosen One -- Outside

Curiously -- in the week that any of you PC types are 'watching' over this hapless, wretch of a human girl, does anyone do anything on the side relating to the situation?

My understanding is mostly the PCs attended her, helped her clean up, fed her, etc. Cantrips help a ton.

Reminder to Ace, his druid felt a tinge of /something/ when he first met her, per my post. Wasn't sure if that registered or not due to your response. Not trying to squabble about natural 'divine' versus 'divine' without a type-- it's all divine to me unless you were trying to tell me there's nothing 'tied to the divine' with your character as a caster of divine magics.

Cheers.

This might be a good area for Kevin to contribute since Jer is just not gonna get there on his own. Like it won't ever occur to him. :)

And Dom is only "gone." He would still be performing with us. At the very most we'd say he's too busy with classes to join us much.

Yes, this. Dom is currently on NPC status due to his player taking a hiatus. Not sure when or if he's coming back, but for now just assume that Dom is around in the background.

1. The process of a liquid slowly passing through a filter
2. A fancy word used to make coffee more expensive.

Your family has always had an obsession with brewing the-grind-things-up-and-passliquids-through-it kind, not the alcohol kind. As a result, you tend to be excellent, if jittery, potionmakers.

Lol. I love it. :D

Really? Because it doesn't come up for me when I click on it. (Not talking about the avatar image on the site. The little blue 'image' text that you find on most if not all of my aliases is a link to a picture that I feel best represents my character. I used to put it in the profile, but I stopped doing that ages ago because putting the link in the part of the profile (usually under gender or class or something like that) that displays in the tag line is easier to find for people. And I'm getting the same error message that the others are describing when I click on the link.)

Switch to dark chocolate, it has far less sugar and a lot more of the stuff that makes it good for your body, mind and soul. Plus it tastes even richer.

Nope. Nope, nope and more nope. I'm better off with milk chocolate that has nuts in it to balance things out a bit. I do not like eating chalk even if it is chocolate flavored. Unless I'm really, really desperate.

(I go through phases when it comes to chocolate. A few years ago I would have agreed and ate dark chocolate exclusively. Nothing under 70% cacao. And then it started tasting really, really bad to me. Just so dry. I'm sure I'll come back around to it eventually, but not anytime soon.)

I don't know. I've never really gotten what people get out of drinking in the first place. I had to give up alcohol for medical reasons and my reaction was pretty much mild disappointment. I like the taste of some alcohol, but *shrug* it's not really a big deal. I took it way harder when I had to temporarily give up coffee. SO glad that wasn't permanent.

And I don't know about your family, but mine are all contrary as hell. So just because someone's been told something doesn't mean they won't take it as a dare to do the opposite....

Lyn,

If FCD doesn't come back soon, what should we do with Ace becoming a Champion? That was supposed to take place the weekend we're heading into, and Fireclaw had some serious plans involving the Equinox festival along with Ty and Ehos.

This is part of why I decided to start the time skip on Friday evening as my understanding was that the Equinox festival was taking place on Saturday. So that buys us some time. I'm hoping that I can get some kind of reply from him soon. But yes, I have already started considering backup plans because that's my job. It's still too soon to be going that far though.

Alright, about the one magic item rule- may the "one" item acutally be a themed set of items? I've got a set planned for the bishop that's basucally a themed set of magic armor that consumed severe magic item slot but amulet.
Isn't the bishop basically an NPC? Rules are different for NPCs.

That wasn't the intent, actually.

He's a build and design I've been meaning to play for a while, but could never find quite the right place or way to do it.

Hmm. Not sure I quite understand how that would work. Not sure I fully understand the intended concept then. But I've been a bit out of it, so I've probably missed stuff.

More likely, I haven't explained myself clearly.

The bishop, for what he's done, is a also brash, young (for an elf), irrisposible, and dives headfirst into basically (good god the typo that was), anything he's even mildly intereted in.

And he'd very much go a long ways out of his way to meet, and be around, actual dragons.

He'd mostly abandon the church if he found something that interested him more, only coming back on days where he's needed for sermons and the like.

Ah. Okay. Yeah, I just hadn't really understood the whole concept there. Works for me. And yes, as long as it's one suit of armor, you can do that.

As somebody who has been following Vai and Fei's stories(individually) as well as their romance since I started,

I believe Lyn is doing a solid job portraying Vai, and while I do dearly hope FCD is able to come back and play her and his other PCs once again on at least a semi regular basis, I can honestly say Lyn is a very good substitute.

Thanks, MG. I'm doing my best. It looks like I will be running FCD's characters for the foreseeable future as I still haven't heard from him. This kinda sucks for me because he has a lot of characters, but I can only assume that some sort of crisis must have come up.

Now that we're at the skip point, it'll probably be okay to park most of his characters. With what's coming up, including Vai in that may be a good idea. I may be able to build something in for that anyway.

And I have one more fast interchange with Fei and Aananda. Apologies for it, but it will get several things that need to happen accomplished ;)

No worries, we can squeeze in a little bit more drama. :)

And yes, that's largely my plan, to put as many of his characters as possible on the sidelines so I don't do anything too awful to them in his absence. :)
