Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Just to let you guys know, I will be AFK for the next week. I'm going on vacation...to Hawaii! :D


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Also, thanks for the well wishes for the vacation. I've been running around like mad trying to get everything packed and ready to go. Sorry I wasn't more interactive today.

I will talk to you all again in a week. :)

Ah that sucks Lynora. As a fellow haver of degenerative diseases I understand the "every day tasks can be an adventure(an annoying one)" experience.

Still you seem to have a good attitude about it, that's more than I can manage sometimes on some of my more crippling days =/

Lying in bed all day is great! Unless you're forced to lie in bed all day, than it's annoying! GRRRRRRRR =)

Yeah, invisible illness sucks. And people often do not get it. But I realized a couple years back that I can let it bog me down or I can accept that reality doesn't match my plans and make new plans. My mom taught me that when life is tough it's okay to feel sorry for yourself. Go ahead and take like fifteen minutes and throw a pity party. And then put it away and remember all the good things you've still got going for you. Don't dwell on the bad stuff and it won't hold you back. She was easily the most positive person I've ever known. And that's in spite of surviving cancer twice, having heart problems, and an autoimmune disease that slowly killed her. She also taught me that life isn't fair. It's the first thing i ever remember her telling me actually. And it's a lot easier when you let go of the expectation that life is somehow fair. I don't come close to having as positive an attitude as she did, but I try at least. :)

I am really sorry to hear that, lyn. I assume you have tried everything you can find to help?

The only cure is a surgery that would permanently destroy my hearing. Not that desperate yet. Yet.

In the meantime I've had to give up caffeine and cut way, way back on alcohol and salt. That's been enough to keep me at mostly able to function semi-normally.
Planes are just especially bad between the noise, motion, and pressure changes. I'll at least take some candied ginger to ease the symptoms as much as possible.

Ha, I hear you. When I was a kid I could go on the fastest, nastiest roller coasters without getting sick, unlike my dad. But now that I am the age he was then I get sick riding in cars sometimes, pretty g@& d%$n lame, I guess that's what I get for mocking him when I was a kid=D.

Oh, I've always had trouble with carsickness. And boats. But I did used to love roller coasters. Now I get motion sick from thunderstorms. And loud trucks going past. I can't even ride an escalator, let alone a roller coaster. As excited as I am about upcoming vacation, I'm dreading the plane ride. There's like zero chance I make it that long on an airplane without throwing up.

I might suspect the same from narrator Lyn, but I have the feeling you're just finishing up with Kai first?

Yeah, I was just letting the scribe finish talking to Kedikai first. He will turn his attention to Rakki now.

Typing on my new shiny now. : D

Definitely happy with it. Now I just have to transfer all of my bookmarks...that's gonna be a project. Well, that and figuring out how to transfer all my files...this probably involves google docs. Ugh. Hmmm....maybe it will be easier to just email files to myself.

Does Rakki come from Nishioki or would you rather it was another port city in that area?
If it's a place near water, it works. What do I need to know to live there?

Nishioki is the largest port city in that area. It's a huge trade center. It's also the territory of the shinobi Clan Akuma. Chances are if you see a tiefling there, they're probably a shinobi. But they're not the only power in the city. Still, there's generally peace in the city. There are really bad problems with overcrowding in the poorer areas of the city, however.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Building your own computer is a great option. I looked into it myself. But I really like using a tablet. Getting stuck in one location just doesn't work for me. ADHD in action. :P

Okay, well, Central Park is in Manhattan, so if they live close to the park then it must be in Manhattan. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Well, I don't remember where the Murai's apartment is, but that's where Elise and Gerald were headed. Was it in Manhattan?


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Alright, I've made up my mind. I'm gonna get the ipad air. I'll go to the apple store tomorrow and hopefully they'll have the model I want in stock. And then no more having my display cut out mid-task. :)

Do all the various classes have specific times they are offered, or can we assume that we can get whichever schedule in whatever order we choose?

Advanced PE is only offered during first or fourth period.

And there is no Evocation or Necromancy during first period.
Advanced Illusion only happens first period.

Pretty sure those are the only classes that have been pinned down to a particular schedule.

Edit: and Transmutation is not available third period as mentioned above.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Yeah, I really like the ipad, but I'm not sure if I can give up being able to use usb devices....then again I'm not sure if I can give up having a touch screen...hence the ongoing debate.

I've heard there are some neat solar charger cases for tablets. :)

Doesn't help if you're using it for a whole day. :P

That and after getting royally screwed by a memory gobbling OS I'm not too keen on going out and buying a Surface, which has the battery life of a laptop so what's the point? Tried out some Android tablets...there aren't words for how much I hate the Android OS. I couldn't deal with it on a phone, there's no way I can deal with it on a tablet. At least with Microsoft I know how to find crap...look for it in the least logical, most backwards place for it to be and there it is. With Android there doesn't appear to be any system at all for where things get hidden. My husband thinks I'm crazy. He loves Android and can easily find all the things...at which point I have to point out how many times I've had to show him how to navigate Windows 8 and how to do stuff on an iphone.:P


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So my tablet is dying. :(
I've had troubles with this thing for a long time now. There's not enough memory and I'm deleting apps every week trying to keep it running. Windows OS eats memory quickly. :/
It has to rebuild the C drive weekly. And my display drivers keep crashing. I've re-downloaded them more times than I can count. It pretty much happens daily. And the hard restarts aren't exactly doing it any favors either.
Word to the wise: the HP Envy X2 is a great computer...for a couple of months. And then it's a great paperweight. :(

Anyways, with the display crashes getting longer and more frequent, it looks like I'm gonna need to buy a replacement. After, of course, we already committed a bunch of money to our upcoming vacation. Timing is everything. :/
So I'm trying to use the time my computer is working to figure out what to replace it with. I'm trying to decide whether to get a 128 GB ipad air or an 11 inch Macbook air. Because I am so done with Windows. So done. Well, that and my need for long battery life pretty much means buying something from Apple. I am not a sit at a desk kinda girl, so stuff that has to be plugged in every three hours is a no-go.

So I apologize for not being as prompt with the posting. I'm doing my best. The machine is not cooperating.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Aww. Definitely feeling the love now. ^.^

Thanks, guys.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I am working on catching up on PMs first and then I will catch up on the game thread. I should get to that sometime tonight, but it might be on the late side.

We went to the rennaissance festival yesterday. I bought yet another outfit. I just can't seem to resist. And now I have different costumes for all the different temperatures that happen over the course of a renn season. :)

Tartanic was awesome as usual, and so was Manolete. But we missed Zoltan. We'll have to make sure to catch that show next time we go.

Serrin Surya wrote:

I seem to recall a sort of split with Conjuration classes. Was there not one that dealt more or less solely with planar travel and creatures?

If so, does that one ever involve planar field trips? Serrin would love to "go home"

It's more that one class deals with Conjuration and another class deals with Planar Studies. Neither has been prone to field trips.

Then again we may have a new Conjuration teacher soon. Depending. Partially on your definition of soon. I'm not writing any characters out permanently until at least the beginning of October, and then only if there has still been no communication from the missing player in question. Until then I'm running that NPC, and it is quite reasonable to assume that Vare would not be approved to take students on a field trip...he can barely manage himself, let alone students...

Without Lynora, this game would have shattered into many pieces many times. I do not mean to minimize the effort and contribution of DB3, Dalesman, and others who have stepped up to the referee plate. The fact remains, though, that Lynora is the lynchpin.

Thank you for your investment in us both in time and energy.

Thank you. This post means a lot to me. I honestly was debating giving up and hanging up the GM hat for good not that long ago. It just seemed like no one was having any fun any more, me included. Instead I decided to restructure things and hope that the problems could be fixed. Give it one last shot. And I don't think I could have done that without the help and support from Dalesman and DB3. Anyways, after all of that, it really is good to know that the effort and time is appreciated. Kinda makes it worth all the trouble. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So out of curiosity where exactly are we starting up timewise? Last events I recall after the second Pulse were Elise and Gerald trying to make their way back from the memorial at the park. Elise was frantically trying to phone her kids who were still in Kansas and not getting through. Guessing the kids also changed after the second Pulse which should be interesting considering how their dad and paternal grandma were likely to react to that.


The best kind. ;)

It's Patty and Liz, the guns from Soul Eater. They're the weapons of Death the Kid.


I am not okay with this!

My poor hapless paladin...usually said to prevent his teammates from doing something awful, but occasionally used in moments of righteous anger towards a villain who has just done something awful.

You're welcome. Glad that it's already proving useful. :)


Although that whole next step of evolution statement does sound an awful lot like the pro-mutant stuff Magneto spouts off to justify his villainy...

What time in game play is it guys, is it still 1st class of the day?

Read Ts and Cs lynx all good and agreed to, :o)

Yep, still finishing up first class. The time off to restructure the game definitely slowed things down. But hey, it's moving again, so that's positive. :)

Serrin Surya wrote:

I have zero ideas about which classes Serrin should take.

She's rather self taught, knowing the basics for all normal classes, and has more in depth knowledge regarding Illusion magic and the Plane of Shadow. As in, she could probably teach classes on them, though she lacks a lot of practical, first hand knowledge of the Plane of Shadow, and she doesn't know a lot of obscure or esoteric information about either subject.

Beyond that, I'm not sure.

Put her in the Advanced Illusion class. Raelle is crazy good at that stuff too, but just being crazy good isn't the same as actually understanding how it works and how to use it to its best effect, hence why she's still taking classes in it.

Genosuke's philosophy class might be a good choice as well.

I'm still like four seasons behind. I've only just started watching the beginning of season three. The season that's going to start will be over long before I'm caught up that far.

Point taken.

I greatly await your catching up. ^_^
Message me if you ever want to geek out over something. XD

Will do. So far I have to say that the second season finale was crazy awesome...also it made me cry. :)

ANNOUNCEMENT: I will be AFK August 23-August 29. We are going on a family vacation...to Hawaii! And, much as I love you guys, I will be too busy relaxing on a beach to check in for those few days. ^.^

Unfortunately I already have more characters than I can keep track of...

It's just a random race I threw in because it seemed like a good idea at the time. No name yet. Based on praying mantis. That's why the males tend to leave the nests....starting a family can be hazardous to their health. :P

Feel free to make stats for it using the ARG if you like. I'm sure I can come up with name, background, and history if you need. Because that's what I do. :)

I figured out how to manipulate the test years ago. It's actually pretty easy. I can get any result I want. But when I answer honestly I get INTP every time.

Note: No, I'm not a sociopath. I just wanted to prove that the test could be easily manipulated if you wanted. I was making a point. Also I couldn't resist testing the patterns once I started to see them.

Very, very accurate for me.

Especially this-
"INTPs’ word should be taken with a grain of salt – it’s not that they are dishonest, but INTPs tend to share thoughts that are not fully developed,"

I often just say that I lie, simply because it's a simpler then explaining what led up to that "lie".

I don't say I lie (because I don't), but I have been known to say that something was a working theory and as it turns out the data didn't back it up...this is a Very Bad Idea in a relationship conversation. The more you know...
