Well, I think I'm done with the majority of the running around. A couple errands left, but I'm leaving those until we know when we have to travel. In the meantime it's pretty much just hurry up and wait. Thanks for being understanding, guys.

Let's see if I can get a post or two up before kidlet's karate class is over.....


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

FYI, so you guys know why I may (or may not be, situation is pretty up in the air right now) be a bit scarce for the next while. My grandfather had a stroke this past thanksgiving and has been in the hospital since. He had another stroke yesterday. There is a good chance that he will pass in the next few days, but of course they don't know anything for sure. He's in his nineties and has been hospitalized for over three months now, so really it's surprising he's lasted this long. But again, right now we just have to wait and see, since it's likely that it will be soon I am trying to get through all the things that need doing this week in as little time as possible to make sure that everything is taken care of if we have to go to a funeral.
This doesn't mean I am going to stop posting. No one can be sad all the time and I'm going to need some moments to get away from all of this mentally now and again. But I'm also going to be pressed for time for the next two to three days. And may end up doing it all again next week. I just wanted to let you guys know what's going on.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Oh wow. Glad she's okay, FCD. And no worries if you need to sleep instead of post. We understand.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

.......and you know you've hit bottom on trying to entertain a fractious child when you start showing the pictures of crafts on Pinterest in the hopes that something anything will distract them from the whining.....help me........ ;P

Okay, he's currently distracted by an episode of Generator Rex....I might actually have a few minutes....


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So my whole family has been down with a cold this weekend. Fun times. (Not really.)

And today is looking spectacularly unproductive since the kidlet is not yet better and thus is home from school. Well, hopefully I will at least be able to find time to post. Gotta make the best of this somehow.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Sad :(

Lol. Oh, no, someone else got caught up in that too? :D
And no fair blaming me for Friendship is Dragons. That was totally in retaliation for the Darths & Droids link....and it worked. I'm still working my way through Friendship is Dragons. :)

Unless I am severely mistaken, Ace does not know that Zilla was murdered. I've been operating under the impression that he only knows about Kitty and Ginni's deaths.

He and Keme were sharing info, and Keme knew about Zilla, so Ace probably does too.

Guys I'm sorry but I have to drop this here... Lynora I have so much sympathy for you right now.....

My players were awakened by a creature battering down a pair of double doors at the end of a hall. They scramble and move to defend, its dark and they cast a light spell... I tell them they see a red eye peering through the top of the door, and the creature is covered in black fur.

I say that they could attempt attack rolls if they so choose.

*Sigh* They roll two natural twenties, to try to identify the creature....

They then proceed to roll only single digits to attack... in melee... waiting until after this creature rips down the door...

I was counting on them getting a couple of attacks in, enough to drive this monster away... Instead they want to be eaten.

Moral of the story...Player Characters never do what you think they will...

And this is why I never plan farther than scene intro. Everything after that is gonna be improv anyways...might as well save myself some time.

Really? Wesley can... like... see the fabric of the universe or some s&&!.

That definitely sounds like Raelle.

Plus he's an engineering genius. And the only other folks who meet that qualification are Iron Man and the Doctor. So yeah.....dang it! I did not do this on purpose!

(Confession: I always liked Wesley as a character and didn't actually find him annoying.)

Hee. I kinda love that you're so paranoid now that you even suspect the one thing in the campaign guaranteed not to bite you in the butt. It means I'm doing my job well. ^.^

You know, in one of the earliest episodes of TNG, they introduced something similar to the arrows onboard the Enterprise. They would led you to whoever you wanted.

Of course, I don't think they ever use that functionality again, since the computer can just tell you exactly where someone is.

How much are you gonna laugh if I tell you that's where the idea for the arrows came from? Cause Ummm....that's exactly where that idea was borrowed from....

Lyn, I hope so.

I have really been suffering lots of lack of creativity lately.

Its not that I envisioned it a certain way. its more along the lines of, chaparone vanishes, another teacher shows up, hey no chaperone everyone back to school. I don't think he is willing to take over, (way too much on his mind already)

at least that is my fear.

Or he could find someone else to fill in....Kor might be available. He should be about done with his interview with Pyra now and the newly hired elementary teacher would make a good chaperone. The point is that it's not automatically all doom and gloom.

Hay, lyn, I want to make the conept available to everyone as an option.

(And I'm somewhat hoping not too many people take it up at once.)

Any preticular way I should do that, or just post it here?

Send me your whole write up and I can put it on google docs and link it to campaign info so it's available just like the other custom races so far.

deleted posts from me. will need to go back i figure this whole thing out.

I still think having this whole ceremony thing was a mistake to begin with.

originally this was the only reason we didn't start the time skip a day sooner. now its all huge mess of stuff happening.

But...we're having fun....

Seriously, just because it isn't going at all how you envisioned doesn't mean the players aren't having a blast. This happens to every GM ever. And a vanishing chaperone adds an interesting snag, no? Opportunity for drama! And drama is what the game is built on. This is a positive thing.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Krays's arrival might be met with suspicion at first, but once Grim identified him as someone known that should diffuse the situation.

Yet another edit: that one earthbending master that I mentioned in one of her pdevious posts might be very suspicious of the whole situation though. Since from his perspective there was already something suspicious about her. (Like that she's a different Ephebe than the one he used to know.)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

No, really. I stated it in her exit post. She was outside alone when she vanished. Even if she teleported away in the middle of the gathering there was no way anyone not her or telepathically connected to her could know it was a hostile action. They might think she had to tend to an emergency somewhere, but it would be weird to assume it was an attack.

Edit: because it happened using her own abilities. They would have no way of knowing about her Patron or that her Patron could force her to do anything. It looked from the outside like she did it to herself.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

. No need to derail your story. This is the nature of improv. Stuff comes up. I got thrown a curveball that triggered certain events that I wasn't expecting to happen until later so I hadn't planned on Ephebe needing to exit the party. That said, while she was less than coherent to whoever she was talking with and that person might be feeling a bit huffy, she did exit the party and was outside alone when she was forcibly teleported away. So nobody really aw anything. No need for any of the guests to panic.

Have you seen Vincent and The Doctor yet?

That one was before Rory, so it's likely.

Umm...no....and I don't think it can be before Rory. He went with them on the last episode I watched. Confused now.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I just started whatever season it is that they bring in Matt Smith as the doctor. I'm a few episodes in, but not many. The last one I watched was the one in Venice I think.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Agents of Shield is one of those shows that I get no vote on. We watch it because the kidlet says so. ;)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I love how they've been focusing more on the ensemble this season.:)
Even Bud got to be kinda badass in that one episode.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Which is good. I need the breather. I find it hard to keep up with tv this year. I was trying to watch five different shows when I really only have time for two or at most three. Or was it six shows? I lost track. Anyhow, it makes me a bit pickier about which ones I keep, and Arrow and Grimm are my favorites, so I'm not going to get rid of them. :)

That's fair Lyn. I hereby also give you Weds off :)

Are you all caught up?

I'm up to Canaries. I would have got caught up but I realized that I was so far behind on the Flash that episodes were gonna start dropping off my queue and I didn't want to have to pay for episodes on itunes. So I am sorta going back and forth now. Considering dropping the Flash altogether. I'm really only watching for the crossover stuff anyways. It just hasn't grabbed me. Way too predictable. If I'm still bored with it after another couple episodes I'll stop watching.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I watch on Hulu. So for me Arrow is on Thursdays.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So, FYI, while I will try to post to the game thread later, it's iffy. I'm having a Very Bad Day. It's Wednesdays. They're out to get me, I swear. Two weeks ago I fell down the stairs, last week I injured my arm, and this week I had two severe hypoglycemic episodes in one day. >.<
I should just stay in bed on Wednesdays from here on out.....

Lyn, are you coming back to post in game later tonight? Both Ace and Sil could use responses, Silinrul moreso than Ace, since Ty answered his actual question. Suppose Jai could just toss in ideas or suggestions.

Yeah, I am. Sorry, I got way behind, and I keep getting interrupted cause life. I have to go make dinner. Hopefully I can get a couple more posts in while it cooks. But the kidlet is already giving me the why is the gluten free pizza not ready to eat look. And yes he's that specific. If I just call it pizza he corrects me. Every time.

Well, other shantaks probobly don't care. They're too busy pulling people into space and suffocationg them for thier amusement.

Just because they're murder-hoboes doesn't mean they can't care. They could be philosophers for all we know. I mean, they have a lot of time to think about stuff after they've suffocated one passenger and before they pick up the next. Maybe they have non-murdery hobbies too.

I'm trying to step up and take a more active role in plot-crafting.

I'm not good at it, I'd think.

I'm glad to hear that. And I think you're better at it than you give yourself credit for. The trick is to give just enough for others to riff off of really. And the only way to get better is to practice. So far I'm pretty impressed with your idea today. :)

Vriskra the shantak wrote:

Also, then where the heck am I from?

Hmm. That could make an interesting plot point. Figuring out where the heck the shantaks came from.

Great, now I'm thinking again.

Sounds like an interesting story development, yes. Perhaps the shantaks have developed their own fictitious history of their origins and will be shocked to learn the truth. Or whatever. But it should be interesting however it turns out. :)

Not sure if I should work all the kinks out or just put the idea out there right away.

Mostly because if it's gonna get rejected, I don't want to get too attached to the concept.

You could just send me a PM if you want pre-approval for the concept.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

No, not really. I'm not that into the whole Dark Tapestry stuff. Please keep in mind that I'm not a big fan of Golarion to start. (I know, not the most popular opinion on these boards) but I don't have to be to enjoy Paizo's non setting specific stuff. So what I know of the Dark Tapestry is just the blurb that comes up when I google it. I find it....uninspiring and lacking in scope. So...yes, eldritch horrors.....just more alien and actually freaking hostile than that. Dark Tapestry stuff is like the domesticated strays leftover from the last great war. The real Others aren't about chaos or madness....they don't care about any of that. They literally feed on feality itself. They are the ultimate parasite.

How much longer do you think this plotline will last? I have to finish my work on my race idea before it's over if I want it to work.

The time rift one? That rift will be sealed by the end of the in-game day. As you can see there are other shenanigans with Time afoot.

Hey Lyn, have you seen any of Kill la Kill?

No, I haven't. Is it on Netflix? It might be one of many things in my queue if yes. I've lost track.

Arthur Barren wrote:

Ok, would her (Ephebie) leaving be bad because she's not able to focus on making the rift smaller

Or good because she's no longer making it worse by being here

As long as Ephebe stays away from the rift, that's good. That's why it was good that she was away for the field trip. Outside of time is even farther away. So that's good. For you guys. Not so good for her. Being a Champion of Time just got a lot more sucky.

Is it just me, or are the patrons less mature then the three year old fungus?

Hee. And you don't even know yet just how bad it actually is. :)

Yeah, no maturity points for Kronos. Which makes sense with the full explanation. Which will be forthcoming shortly, but don't want to spoil anything before revealing in game.

Okay, so obviously I got distracted by stuff....yeah, I know, shocking. It's days like this that I miss caffeine so dang bad. :(
So me and my ADHD will be back in the afternoon. Like for real this time. I literally blocked out a whole two hours of my daily schedule just for updating the game....
In the meantime, I leave you with the one post I actually have time for.
Lysander is gonna be pissed....

Also, thanks to Lyn I wasted my entire morning reading Darths & Droids.

Links are dangerous Lyn!

I'm also probably going to end up reading Friendship is Dragons again too. Nice job! ;P

Woo, looks like some awesome Dalesman posts over the weekend. I wish I was going to have time to reply before tomorrow afternoon. :(
But I need to get some sleep and then there's a Monday to be deat with. Ugh. 50/50 I get woke up at 5 to find out kidlet's school is cancelled due to cold. Unless the weather people are wrong, but it's supposed to be below -20F with windchill and that is apparently the cutoff where they are legally required to cancel school. :/

Lol. Well, I appreciate the snow. :)

Honestly, I came to video games late and am generally strapped for time, so I don't want to waste it on something that isn't fun. I dislike overly powerful NPCs for the same reason Elminster sucks. It's not fun having an NPC outshine you when you're supposed to be playing the hero.

So plotwise, what's up with Taron and Kam? Neither of them have really had much screen time since I joined, at least in comparison to some other characters.

Also, are Kitty and Michael still at his place?, was kinda enjoying them :)

Michael's aware of Ace helping to investigate the murderer, right?

What's Tami up to?

Tami is hanging around the infirmary. She works as a helper there sometimes, and since her best friend is in an isolab waiting to have her mind put back together, Tami wants to hang around.

Not quite sure where we left off with Michael and Kitty. I asked if he wanted to continue with the planned family visit to Kitty's hometown, but never got an answer. At least, not that I'm aware of. I do miss posts sometimes. It happens.

That seems like a design flaw that would become very irksome to me. If I'm going to play a character of a certain class, I don't want to be shown up by an NPC recruit. Granted nine times out of ten I probably wouldn't recruit someone of the same class as my PC (unless I just really really liked the character) because it would be an unnecessary duplication of abilities in the party, but if the game doesn't give you the option to recruit or not recruit but just adds people to your party based on the storyline I can see how that might not be an option.

this was second ed. Ability duplication was necessary to survive.

Moreover, the idea you are putting forthe here seems to be a relatively recent invention. It could all boil down to the fact that you are younger than me and have a different perspective as a result.

I think it's playstyle rather than age because you're younger than I am and I agree with Orthos here. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I've got one character hiding in the corner because he's scared of everyone (but hey, at least he's decided to tolerate Kim...that's improvement) and one who has been dragged off by bossypants new character.....so that leaves me with Chara. Please keep in mind that you asked for this. ;P

On Monday, Origin had Dragon Age Inquisition 33% off. I bit, but I didn't get any good game time until yesterday. It's fun, but I feel like my destruction mage (my spells are all elemental damage dealing, and I have multiple elements and spare staffs of other elements than my main staff so I don't get blocked off by resistances) is really, really powerful. If I switch to Cassandra, I feel useless. Can't do anything close to the damage my mage can. Varric is worse.

Well, Cassandra is flipping useless, so there's that. Have you leveled them at all? Or is it just because your PC levels faster than they do? It's not because you're playing a mage though. I've tried mage and fighter and it's pretty much the same. Your PC is way more badass and it becomes a problem if you forget to level your party. At least until you start picking up some more badass companions along the way. Not that I'm really all that terribly far into it. I get motion sick when I play so I have to play in very short increments so I don't exactly make progress quickly. And many of those quests are just so gorram frustrating. I hate having to wander around looking for random stuff. That's just the worst. But I want to find out the story so I keep muddling through....sigh. Is gonna take forever....
