And now I'll get back to posting in the game thread....


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Anyways, gaming tomorrow night. (Wooooo!) We restarted after a two year hiatus and are now starting to make progress in Shackled City. A highly modified version of Shackled City, but hey...it was the only way we were ever going to get an urban campaign. :)

And then Easter. Which I am not at all sure how we are celebrating. I mean, other than the Easter Egg Hunt for the kidlet. Guess I should figure out if I'm supposed to be cooking Easter dinner or not. :S

Heh.

I love how on Friday's, it already feels like the weekend has started sometimes.

S L O W . . .

Fun times. Enjoy the holiday, y'all, if it's something you normally would (or not).

I don't know about the rest of these guys, but I have class on friday evenings. :P

But only for three more weeks. Cannot get this semester over with fast enough.....so I can start applying to different schools so I can get my bachelors....apparently I am a glutton for punishment. :/

This would have all been so much easier if I had finished college on the first try....stupid poor health ruining my perfectly good plans...


Thank you, Chris! :)

I believe Mel is waiting on Tybs, if you get the chance tonight.

Ummm....not so much? The food fight was interrupted by the knock on the door. Pyry and Asha are there now and Tybalt is making some clothes for Pyry. Arthur finally came out of the bathroom.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Heh. Interesting indeed. At present he's making a serious pain of himself trying to track down the escaped Asha, but he leaves the other nobles alone for the most part. People seem to care if he lashes out at them. ;P

Is Embre still alive? If not, what happened to him?

Yes, he's still alive and in the refugee camp. Like we'd be lucky enough for someone that mean to just drop dead. :P


Finished my paper (not well, but finished) ten minutes before the deadline after having the computer restart and lose everything but the first paragraph three separate times, and went to turn it in...only to find out that the prof had extended the deadline earlier in the day. Yeah, it was one of those days... so now I am gonna take some time to edit out some of the more smartass remarks.

Hopefully today will be a better day than yesterday. So far it's already off to a better start. :)


And now back to the four page paper that I only have one paragraph of done that's due in.....four hours and some change....I am so screwed. >.<

Only in Syracuse, NY can you get 80-degree weather, a thunderstorm, and snow, all in a 24-hour period. Seriously, f!&! this town.

Not only in Syracuse. We had pretty much that same weather system. It sucked. A lot.

The kidlet says that spring is a combination season when you get all the seasons at once. Way too true.

Is Allegiant Divergent?

Maybe it's a good thing I left early. I did love his sword. I've considered building a class, but I figured that Dragon rider is exactly it.

Yes, it's the third book. It's Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant. Really good series up until the part where it rips your heart out and stomps on it. :/

America has its own lying politicians to worry about, Cap. :P

I always loved Eragon. It was the faster chapter book I ever read through. I still haven't gotten ahold of the last one...

The last one kind of killed the whole series for me. Not as bad as Allegiant (damn you, Veronica Roth *shakes fist*), but enough to keep me from wanting to ever reread the series.

More specifically, the ancient language they used. Speaking the human tongue allowed them to lie.

Yep, the elves' language in that series was effectively truespeech.

In this case it's not the same thing. Fey are limited by their nature, not their language.

If so, I might have a hole in my back story/family tree...

Didn't I just say they were really good at lying without actually lying? Fey are some of the most deceptive creatures out there. :)

Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

The best lie is the truth. Just ask Nala. Fey in this setting can't actually lie. They have pretty well mastered the art of lying without lying. Growing up in the Winter Queen's court, Nala is pretty good at this too.

Always fun to go back and read old posts. Ardiente and Raelle had so much chemistry from the get go. It was tough keeping that in check while she was being mind controlled. :)

I think Dave is in for a bit of a shock when he gets to meet the real Raelle. The one who is opinionated and spoiled and occasionally totally unreasonable.....he might not feel so bad about the breakup after all. :P

Should I be afraid? :D

Maybe a little. ;)

That... Doesn't make sense.

Jeez... There are times where coming in late really stinks.

It has to do with a time demon. It all went down in the first Agartha game. Ephebe died a lot fixing that mess. Taron has only ever existed in one timeline. Ephebe and Jiminy are both the last versions of themselves left alive in any other timelines. Ephebe had to kill all the the other Jiminies. Ephebe isn't native to this timeline. The Ephebe who was native to this timeline was the first one to die trying to fix the past. This Ephebe was kidnapped from her parents as a baby and raised by the time demon. That's part of why she was finally able to beat the demon.

Is there any advice to be had for a GM making far too many mistakes? I'm running a game now, and virtually every time I post, I make some small (or not) error. For instance, I just now forgot the animal companion had a Swim speed.

Double checking doesn't seem to help—I don't notice the error until it's pointed out. Is there any trick to this? I'm pretty sure my players are starting to get frustrated.

Personally I keep a little notebook with notes to myself about those things I keep forgetting (like the names of animal companions) and that helps some. But mostly I think the best thing is just to be honest with the players in discussion and say that you're going to need them to keep track of their own stuff and will probably need frequent reminders. People are usually more forgiving when you set their expectations ahead of time. There's just so much to keep track of as a GM that nobody ever gets it all right.

I KNOW THAT FEELING!

I cherish the days that no one else is in the house...

Ohmigosh, yes! That's the best. And I usually get at least a couple of hours every weekday. Except during summer vacation. I'm usually a frazzled wreck by the end of summer vacation.

And Capt, like most introverts, I can cherish family time just fine. But I start to crack a little after a few days with no recharge time in between. I need moments of solitude in order to function. When the kidlet was little I used to get up and wander the house in the middle of the night just to get some alone time.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Also, sorry all. Feeling kinda unmotivated this week. Have kidlet home for spring break and husband not traveling for once and all the togetherness is just draining. (#introvert problems) I'll try to get it together here.

GreyWolfLord, I think that you are now making huge assumptions about where people are coming from that don't really take into account their possible histories. I was raised in a Christian conservative family. I know I'm not the only one here who comes from a religious background. You talk about understanding, but sometimes what seems like flippant dismissal to you comes from a place of understanding. I understand where the fundamentalist Christian viewpoint is coming from. I've studied the Bible quite a lot (and came to some different conclusions regarding how certain words/phrases are translated and how literally things should be taken than I was taught). I understand what it's like to grow up hating yourself for something that you can't change no matter how hard you try. I understand what it's like to cause a family division just by being. I understand that there are some truly good, compassionate Christians in this world. I also understand that some of the most vicious, petty people I have ever met in my life also call themselves Christians. It would be easy to dismiss the latter as extremists. They're not. They're very, very ordinary and most people would call them moderates. Unless you happen to disagree with them about what color the carpet in the sanctuary should be. Then all bets are off.

Spoiler:
Actually the battle over the carpeting, while bitter, was nothing compared to the battle over the soap dispensers in the church bathroom. That one actually caused a church schism....I take two things away from this. 1. People are weird. 2. In hindsight taking life advice from people who take soap dispensers that seriously wasn't really my brightest moment.

It would be easy to dismiss everything I just said by saying that I'm an outlier or an exception. I'm not. There are plenty of other people with similar experiences. But I can't speak for everyone. I can only speak for me. And I'm tired of even the suggestion that there are reasons worth understanding why someone would hate me for existing. Some things are just wrong and that's enough to be said about it.

Lavendar tea is actually lavendar. Tea is usually some shade of brown or yellow. Seeing purple tea in my mug is a little weird. I like it. :)

Yes, Zilla has usually been described as looking around 14 actually. But really with Hew having to make a new body for her frequently she can end up with a lot of variation to her appearance. So she might look different ages on different days.

Carl knows because Tryko'Sam told him. Tryko'Sam has long vision (like can see out for miles) as one of his powers. That's how he was able to see what was going on.

Edit: Vai was more than a bit distracted by the whole thing with her parents. I don't think she was really paying attention to much.

And the girls are waiting for the next available medical personnel. Morrivan is in bad shape, but a few minutes delay isn't going to make a difference. Really she needs the psychologist not a doctor.

Is Aananda in her Lab Lyn?

Hmm...last time I noted her location she was at the factory commandeering their equipment to battle the plague...but that was several hours ago. So yeah, she would have gone back to her (finally) rebuilt lab once it got to the cleanup stage.

At Ginni and Ace. She wants to make sure they don't call out to Vai. :)

I think you hit the nail on the head in your last post, Capt. If you had followed the progression you described there with her finding out from other students I would have had zero issue with Alree going to Kuros to help. But without those steps it came off as very overpowered that she would just know. But it's all good now and we've worked things out so that she's back on track so no harm done.

Alright, so, first things first, we have a minor mess to untangle. After discussing the matter via PM, Alreeneesha could not have actually known about the situation in Kuros with the information/abilities she currently has. But the scene she was in moved on without her so I can't completely retcon the action away. Does anyone have someone hurt/suffering in closer proximity to Alree (she was at the lake) that could have drawn an empathically sensitive person to them? Could use a little help brainstorming solutions here.

Also, speaking of Kuros, things are starting to wrap up there, so Ed if you want to introduce Kim during this game day, you should do it.

Just to add, this was not my aim have her do any thing more than help a small few on the outskirts of town, she was not there at all to interact with the town game plot. There was a mix up with another players plans that stated to make thing far more complied than so meant them to be. To keep life less stressful and simple I don't think there is a need to have a real in game thing she dos wile the town plot is being tied up.

Let's just say she headed off to help some one/thing/other.
I'll bring her back into play when it's not so complicated.

Hon, that actually makes things even more complicated than a simple redirect to a different plot. The complication with other people's plots is only part of the difficulty, the other part being that she just didn't have that information. And yes, I might have let the info thing slide with a warning not to do that again cause that's not how that power works, if it didn't also complicate other plots, but we need to do a retcon here and it's much worse to have her disappear and reappear later than just do a small course correction now. Really.

There were a couple of events offered already, and I think one might have been put into play. Not sure. Pretty tired and I was doing a lot of posting. The words, they swim after a while. The point is, just give it a bit and we'll have this all fixed in a way that lets her show the whole healing/compassion angle like your original intent. Honestly, we have plot snafus on a regular basis. They have happened to everyone. Letting people help you smooth them over to not leave holes in the story is the best way to handle it. After all, half the point was also to give her a way to connect to the story.

What was it that happened between Morivan and Sadie?

Major blowout that ended in a breakup. Sadie didn't really handle the role of comforter well and things were not going well between them and then when Vai asked Sadie to go to Belsayv and she agreed without a second thought it was pretty much the last straw.

Yeah, I know. I'm too tired to do a good job on homework now anyways. So I'm posting cause I can do that even in my sleep. ;)
The reason I'm only posting a little bit this week is because I've been using the other time for homework.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

And apologies to all waiting on me. I'm going to update game thread soon here. It's just that it's test week. My school does four exams through the semester instead of just midterms and finals. Great for grades, murder on the workload since all of the classes have tests at once. Or major essays for the english classes since that's what they give us to do instead of exams. So I've been drowning in homework. I actually sat and did homework in physics class today...at least it was physics homework. :)

Not sure if that's immediate enough pain to really distract her. He's got more of a long-term problem.

If I thought for one second that her mom would let her out of her sight after the roller skating/ramp on stairs incident during the afternoon I'd have Chara pull another stunt.

Is Nibiru or the emerald world being done?
I'd love to make the emeralds... finish my rayquaza concept as a whole race.... would be cool.

Annwn is the emerald world. FCD has that one.

I was asking to make sure I hadn't promised any of the others already. And then we'll talk. It's not a for sure thing even if they aren't taken. This is main plotline stuff so it's a discussion we can have if it's not already a moot point.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Found the name of the topaz world. It's Nibiru.

Was anyone besides FCD working on one of the gem dragon worlds? I thought DB3 might have been doing something with Lemuria, but my memory is fuzzy on this. I know I have a decent amount of work done on Haven because it was the first world encountered.

From what I've been made aware Aananda and As well as kitty's boyfriend who's name escape's me are essentially sparks yes?
Arthur is also a spark.... His spark is just simi dormant for now.
