Telepathy still working great! You haven't missed a beat yet. :)

If you have an idea let me know. I don't think it's needed per se, but that doesn't mean it can't be included. Especially since Patron power dynamics are about to change. :)

Today the kidlet is twelve!!! How did he get so old already?!
We are heading to Dave and Buster's for birthday fun soon. :)

Yeah I lost a couple of posts last night too. Time to recreate them now,

And she has an auto updating list. It was a gift from Kronos. Because she used to be the welcome committee/trainer for new Champions.

I typed in "Optimus Prime as a female dragon" into google image search and was not disappointed. A little disturbed though. (Link is SFW)

Do we have any vanilla extract?

Omg, that is so perfect. :D

Would developing a spell to de-age yourself a few decades count as gaining immortality?

Has tybs met any of the other champions yet?

Technically no, you're still mortal. But try casting it a few times and you risk becoming a target. Then again, everybody cheats, so....

And I don't hink Tybs has met any of the other Champions yet.

The Doctor was Destiny's Champion once before they found out there were ways to get more regenerations and he was disqualified for living forever...

Speaking of, what happens if you become a champion and then through science/magic/Monk-of-4-Winds-lvl-20 you then become immortal? Do you lose your powers or does everybody just get mad?

Gah! I typed wibbly, I swear. Bloody stupid autocorrect. :/

And as Lysander said, if you become immortal you lose your champion status.

What I don't understand is why we need destiny when knowledge exists, who knows what will happen in every single timeline with perfect accuracy.

You're getting Knowledge and Time confused there. Knowledge knows what is and what was. It's pretty easy to extrapolate what will be from that, but it's not the same thing as knowing it for sure. Time is the only one who can actually see into the future because he exists there as well as the present and the past and isn't bound by linear notions of his existence. (Wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff) But as Ephebe has noted in the past, Time sees all the futures and sorting out any one future and connecting it to a particular present is....well, it's faster to just wait and see what happens.

Destiny is about equipping particular people to be ready to act at the pivotal moments when timelines split.

Glad the new computer is so cool, FCD. :)

Lol. Yes, I suppose that would have been handy. :D
Hopefully the new computer is awesome.
And I'm glad the weather is more temperate here. At 30 degrees Celsius I'm basically a useless puddle. I do not handle heat well. :)

Reading it is a lil confusing. I can't imagine trying to write it.

They both have that annoying habit that really smart people sometimes have of jumping straight to the end of something without bothering to stop at the points leading up to it. Which means that sometimes they're finishing each other's sentences and other times they have no idea what the other one is even talking about. Keeping track of which one knows what is....challenging. :)

Shackled City session was canceled. :(
For very good reason. A player had a family medical emergency. Hopefully everything turns out okay and of course we understand that family comes first.

It can be tough to get back into things after a long break.
This weekend we will be heading to [redacted] as our brave (and more than slightly traumatized) heroes continue attempting to save a generally ungrateful Cauldron in Shackled City. :)

As someone experienced in Gluten free baking from my days as a hippy baker in Seattle I can in fact reiterate it does in fact taste like sawdust and sadness, it's a terrible allergy to live with:-(

True dat. There aren't words for how much I miss donuts. Word to the wise, gluten free donuts are never gonna happen no matter how hard you try. :(

But hey, nothing I can do about allergies. And at least I've figured out how to make pie crust. And some types of cookies. Now if I can just figure out cake. That will make birthdays so much better. But I've totally given up on bread. I just can't get that right.

Am trying to make gluten free cookies for PFPL. They've been in the fridge for an hour and a half and are still not firm enough to slice. Something has gone wrong, but what?

This is the first time I've tried to bake since making recreational confectionery at college, so some sort of cock-up was inevitable. Still, never mind. If it doesn't work we'll just eat the dough raw LIKE BEASTS.

Gluten free baked goods are a pain. That said, they will never ever get the same consistency as normal wheat based stuff. Even if you've been fortunate enough to get a tasty version. It's basically like having to relearn baking all over again. It takes five different flours just to make a pie crust that doesn't taste like sawdust and sadness for example. Anyhow, good luck. :)

@Krys: take 1d4+1 pun damage.

@nala: the advisor thing is new info for me, would Zix be Marcel's advisor?

The advisor thing has been mentioned a few times before. Basically if an individual teacher has spent time working on a particular student's problem then they get enetered into the system as that student's advisor. This just means they get called whenever that student causes trouble/ needs help because they already know about the problem. So for example, Miss Jones is Dave's advisor because she helped him deal with his problem with the runaway psychic powers. And yes, Zix would be listed as Marcel's advisor.

~low whistle~ wow. Thank you lynora for linking that story for us. We all have someone in our life that suffers from long term illness. More people need to understand these things.

Shiny linked that one a long time ago, and I've been using it ever since. It is a very useful analogy.

pizza tonight?

Nah. That would require going out and spending a small fortune as we would have to get multiple pizzas. My husband refuses to eat gluten free pizza crust, the gluten free pizzas are tiny so we would need one each for me and the kidlet, and we can't just do carryout because I refuse to allow my husband to bring wheat products into the house. Because I should be able to feel safe from allergic reactions in my own house darn it. It's literally so bad that if he left crumbs on the table and I later on touched the crumbs without knowing they were there, I would break out in hives. Heck, he forgot to wash his hands after eating a sandwich a couple weeks ago when we went out to eat, and then took my hand and I ended up with a rash all over my hand. From a few seconds of contact.

So, no pizza. Taco Tuesday will proceed as planned. But not much else will. :/

Rainbow is sticking his nose in the air In snooty frustration

Out of character I'm waiting on the two teachers that I out of character have been told are on their way to investigate the cause of the fire
In character he's pouting for a few minutes edited he stalks over to the school, and try to make his way in, despite being huge size category, and/or demanding that the healers and/or leaders
If it comes to that I don't expect that to be well received
.

Since the fire was put out, the teachers in question might have just gone back to their lesson. I don't know. Anyways, if you're at the school already then you're more likely to interact with other folks besides them. Basically this scene got totally confusing and I honestly have no idea where you are geographically speaking. The only thing I know right now is that the fire was put out.

Good luck with the transportation troubles, Magic.

Anyone waiting on a response from me either in game or via PM, I will respond either later tonight or tomorrow. We've got thunderstorms going through here today and I am really not feeling well as the rumbling triggers some pretty extreme motion sickness. It makes it hard to concentrate on what I'm typinng. I apologize for the delay.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

LF, my understanding is that the creature is hiding for a round or two. So we have some time to actually talk to each other and work as a group. Also, how is Dave not affected by the lack of breathable air? Jeran is in a spacesuit, Vare used magic to create some, but what is Dave doing? Let's not lose track of the details here. :)

I thought that fire went out? I don't know. I got a bit confused there honestly. Is the fire still going or isn't it?


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Okay, waiting on Lysander's response before unleashing another really-should-have-seen-that-coming twist.
Waiting on the demon mech's response to getting drenched with holy water before Jeran reacts to another new arrival to the fight.
Waiting on Ardeinte's response to Tami in the infirmary.
Can pretty much cut to building/designing montage in Aananda's lab unless Arthur, Hermes, or Melody had anything further to add before we get to the actual implementation of the device.
Should have Keme head out and go in search of Ace and company. With some intereesting news.
Is Tamrin going to go interrogate the guy he sent to the white room anytime soon? Just wondering. Would totally understand if he intends to wait on that.
And other than that, to the best of my knowledge I am current on all other scenes. If someone is waiting on me, please let me know. :)

Right. One rubber chicken of mental imperviousness coming right up.... :P

And now to do that which I dread....more work trying to recover damaged files off of a virus infected computer. It's all my family photos from when my son was four through when he was nine. Might have possible backups left on other virus infected computer. All other backups are gone due to corrupted files.
>.<
So this is why we print out the actual pictures instead of just making digital albums.....


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I'm not sure which is worse....waiting for the other shoe to drop, or waiting to drop the other shoe....
Don't mind me. Just feeling impatient over here. :D

We're three days in to summer break, and the kids are making sure it's going to be a LOOOOOOOOONG summer.

Impus Major was sick on Monday. Impus Minor was mildly sick yesterday, and today is absolutely miserable. Of COURSE they're handing every cold they get off to me, while NobodysWife is off in L.A. at E3.

On the bright side, for an OCD like me life is better when you're so busy that every minute is a, "What needs to get done next?" moment. Whee?

My sympathies. Kidlet got the sniffles during the last week of school and we ended up taking him to the doctor the day after his last day. Turns out the sniffles was actually a sinus infection. So he has spent his summer vacation thus far playing video games to distract himself from how miserable he feels. He's dong a bit better and he's been on the antibiotics long enough now to not be contagious, so I'm planning to take him to the movies this afternoon....gotta get him off of the couch at least for a little bit. :)

I was ecstatic on Monday when Impus Major declared, "I am NOT going to sit around in the house all summer! I'm going OUTSIDE!!!!"

He got dressed, insisted that I acknowledge his state of dressitude, went to the park for a couple of hours... and came home sick.

Hasn't changed out of his "standard" summer wear (tighty whities and a pink fluffy bathrobe) since...

EDIT: Oh, geez. Now I *know* that I need to post his "standard summer wear" and Halloween costume. (A rainbow sparkly My Little Pony dress, rainbow tights, and a dead horse head. Life is good when you're a 14-year-old boy the size of many 7-year-old girls...)

Okay, that's an awesome costume. :)

The kidlet could never pull that off though. He's almost twelve and only half an inch shorter than me (I'm 5'2") and very solid build. He's not overweight, but no one will ever call him skinny. Strong,yes, skinny, no. He's been glared at by parents who think he's too old for the playground equipment since he was nine. *shrug* Not much I can do about that.

His standard summer wear is sadly similar though. Too small flannel pajama pants and an old sweater of mine that he 'borrowed' and never returned....I liked that sweater too darn it.

Thanks. I will keep an eye out.

well I think I figured out my motivation failing source (at least for this game)

I am suffering from Dr Who withdraws... I need the new season to start.

Tried Game of Thrones, but just ends up with this in mind

lol. Yep. that video is a good summary of why I gave up on Game of Thrones. :)

And you could always watch old seasons on Netflix.....
Personally I'm still catching up. When does the new season start? I'm still only partway through season 6. Just watched "When a Good Man Goes to War" and "Let's Kill Hitler". I loved the Santaran (sp?) nurse....I so want to have him in the infirmary now. :P
I'm really hoping that they put Season 8 up soon. Otherwise it is either going to be a long wait or expensive buying it episode by episode. But either way I'm planning to DVR Season 9 when it starts (hence my question about when it does start) so it's available when we actually get caught up.
It's hard to binge watch a show when the person you're watching with is out of town half the week. But we are making progress...slow progress, but better than nothing. :)

Firearms are available but not common. Much like skimmers and hover bikes were before Jiminy started a factory to build new ones. They exist, but it can be hard to get parts for them, etc, etc. easier near Kuros since it's an industrial center.
It's nothing against firearms. They are just one more example of nearly lost tech as Agartha had been sliding into more and more primitive conditions over time. But boy is that changing now! Jiminy has ideas! So many ideas..... :)

"Psst. Hey... Lyn... How do I tell the difference?..."

Firebirds don't physically age after their twentieth birthday. While sometimes nobles and high clerics will use illusions to appear old (to command respect), generally there isn't any easy way to tell. Usually dress and hairstyle provide good clues. Very old firebirds (like five or six hundred years old) will get a sort of translucent look to their skin, and are more sensitive to cold. But trying to tell the difference between a twenty year old and a fifty year old is a bit of a crapshoot. So probably something like how silly they act.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Waiting on Ardiente to react to his girlfriend fainting in front of him and/or for Melody to react to being handed data and Arthur's request for a translation (and also possibly to Raelle passing out).
Also waiting on Vare. Attempt number one to teleport was a failure, but a second attempt would work.
Now that he has the power is Dave also joining the fight against the demon mech? Or is he checking to make sure the naked guy isn't still possessed first?
Outside of those two scenes I'm gonna check to see who needs replied to.
Where did we leave the discussion with Ace and friends? Just want to make sure I'm not the one holding that up.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So I'm assuming I don't need to step in and this little piece of drama is already over?
