*crawls out from under the piles of housework*

Hi, guys. I'm back(ish). Kidlet has made it back to school a couple days in a row and I've had some chance to catch up on things. But I'm also in the middle of a massive spring cleaning effort. So my posts will be sporadic at best for a while. But I'll try to get in a few here and there as I can. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I hope you have a great time Magic. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Still alive. Got back from grandpa's funeral and kidlet got sick while I was gone. Just a cold, but he's been clingy and needing lots of attention so that's what I've been up to the last couple of days. Will catch up as soon as I get a chance.

I had a similarly awkward encounter once, when I went to a new dentist and he ended up crying when treating me because it turns out he was my aunt's dentist (she had taken her own life) and I reminded him of her.

I understand your feelings dentist but could you make more of an effort not to let your tears fall into my mouth?

Well, that would convince me to never go back to the dentist....

I had to post that little sarcastic comment lest I actually say it out loud since that was after the fifth time I was accosted by a second or third cousin with the same sort of inappropriate behavior. Apparently tact is something that happens to other families. It clearly missed mine.

And thank you to those who offered condolences.

Wow, lots of posts. :)

Sorry I'm not up to speed. I've been dealing with some health problems the last few days and am trying not to post cranky.

I usually use avg cause I'm a cheapskate. My husband paid for some fancy antivirus program for his computer and I hate it because it's very needy and if it doesn't get regular attention it crashes everything and I have to troubleshoot. Again.

AVG is what caused this whole mess in the first place by freaking out over a youtube video!!!! And it was nigh impossible to uninstall!

Then again, I am NOT aware of technology issues really. Maybe it really was that the router/modem needed to be fixed. I honestly don't know, and I need to find a way to educate myself without putting my netbook at risk.

Well, without being able to play with the system a bit, I don't know what the root cause of your problem is, program or hardware. But a quick google search for free antivirus programs brought up the names Avira and Avast. Both seem to have good reviews. So that gives you a couple of non AVG options. If you're not running Windows 8, AVG might not be the best choice anyway. It's designed to work with that OS for the most part. Can work with others, but best with Windows 8. Which is what I have on the only PC I have left to worry about. I use an iPad as my primary computer. This makes my life simpler and lets me only have to swear at other people's infernal machines. :P

Oh, it is. I write him as an amalgam of Shinigami from Soul Eater and Discworld Death. Or at least that's the intention. He's also the one patron who doesn't really care about power. Everything ends up in his domain eventually. No need to be in a rush about it. :P

Why is time, then? Everything is always in his domain...

Anyway, should i resend the data on the race i made?

I can't really explain about Time without giving away stuff that will become obvious in game soon. I don't want to spoil upcoming scenes.

No need to resend. It's approved. Sorry I forgot to send that to you before.

Okay, so I could keep going with sorting through the PMs trying to remember which ones I have and haven't replied to, but I don't think that's an efficient use of my time right now. If you're still waiting for a response from me, please resend the message. My apologies for the inconvenience, but this way gets you answers faster.

So to update: my grandpa passed away on Saturday. After a whole bunch of what ended up as a literal game of telephone and parts of my family not speaking to other parts and so on, they finally scheduled the funeral for a week from this coming Saturday. The same day as my son's karate tournament. So yeah. It's been a fun few days.

Having had more than my quota of family drama, I am trying to get my head back in the game as it were. It may take me a while to get back up to speed. I know I have several PMs in need of replies, and I'm not entirely certain just how many storylines I have currently paused. I will probably do a character check in later on to figure it out.

Belated condolences, Lyn - it seems to be a bad year for this stuff.

My wife has gone through two family deaths since January, and a third one not too far off. All with the requisite family drama, of course (and not being allowed to take time off from work for the second one to boot).

2015 = Sketchy :/

Condolences to your wife as well. Wow. I had one of those years once. Hopefully this doesn't end up being another one. I'm running quite short of family members. :(

Well, 2015 isn't off to a great start, I'll grant you that....maybe it will get better? I mean, that would be the easier direction....

Stars and garters man - that means my totally pointless storyline is shutdown until April!! Shenanigans, I say... ;P

In all seriousness, have an awesome trip man. It sounds like a fun jaunt (and hopefully it's for pleasure and not work).

Heh. I think I'm the one that was holding that storyline up actually. Oops. Well, I can try and get a post up in the next couple hours or so and hopefully FCD will have time to reply before his awesome trip. :)

Re: Wards:

There are two types of wards. Planetary wards are pretty self-explanatory. The previous version of planetary wards completely cut off Agartha from the multiverse and hid the planet so it could not be found. Those wards were transformed into something totally different when Agartha was flipped inside out. Now travel to and from the planet is possible both from space travel and from interplanar travel. The key here is hostile intent. If someone means harm to Agartha then they will bounce off the wards. That doesn't mean evil can't get through. General ill will doesn't cut it. They have to actually intend harm. The wards do not however have infinite power and a large invasion fleet intent on harm would eventually be able to overwhelm the wards so that they fail. Anyone who has been to Agartha and then leaves will forget everything about their time there including planetary coordinates should they attempt to reveal that information to enemies of Agartha. If an Agarthan or someone who has been to Agartha is captured and interrogated this will effect them before they can reveal anything.
The other type of wards are the school wards. Again, they don't stop anyone from entering school grounds unless that person is intent on harming the school. The school wards also prevent violence on school grounds by teleporting someone to detention as soon as they deliberately strike another with intent to do harm. They also teleport anyone who is severely injured directly to the infirmary. These wards are separate from the school security network which is more of a video monitoring system with extra capabilities to deal with accidents and other emergencies that are not covered by the wards. There is a certain amount of overlap between the two systems because you want redundancy for these kind of things. Although after the recent issues, there will be adjustments to account for the weaknesses exposed by Darth Vai's atttacks.

Now none of that would prevent the angel guy from showing up in Agartha or at Avalon. His intent is to help not to harm. He would be perfectly welcome. This is part of why Jeran wanted to make sure the girl had a dimensional anchor on her at all times once they returned to the schol since there isn't really any way to keep all these extraplanars out.

Apologies for slow posting on my part this week. I will catch up when I can. My grandfather passed away this weekend and I've been trying to deal with that and the ensuing family drama. (I just want to know when the funeral is scheduled, dammit...it's not that difficult of a question....). So please be patient with me. Thanks.

Yep, that's pretty accurate.

Anyone else ever have one of those days when you feel like you're bouncing off the walls like a drunken hummingbird? Just me?

In other not news it turns out that stress can really exacerbate ADHD symptoms.....


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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.....
