Congratulations on the termination of ick.

May those who wish to have one have an enlightening day free of strife or conflict.


Now, to try to avoid getting the flu. This year's strain is a killer.

Co-worker lost their parent just before the end of the year.

Condolences accepted on behalf of co-worker (we aren't close or even work directly with each other) and sent back via time vortice to when sympathies were offered to said co-worker.

It's bad enough that the folks are 'shutting themselves in' this winter for fear of getting the cruds (because less than optimal insurance PLUS having to deal with sick people).

...of course, this means working in retail that I get stuck dealing with noxious folks all day and they can't seem to understand my growing 'people claustrophobia'.

ie, if folks get within five feet of me now I start getting anxious, four feet downright disturbed, three feet I put my arm up to maintain at least that distance.

MAY have something to do with an a-hole customer who poked me with a box-cutter and that my then a-hole manager (no longer working for the company) made me apologize to 'for accusing him and defaming his character'.

Manager is no longer with the company but I have a really hard time trusting anyone getting too close anymore.

This description made me think a bit of PTSD. EMDR helped me a lot for this kind of psychic scars

Sorry for generally only popping in now and then! I'm having a hard time figuring out what to make of this sometimes-- it feels like a very, very slow conversation in one of the old IRC chatrooms or something.

That said, y'all are great :D hope everyone that's doing good continues to do so, and everyone that's not joins the rest soon!

I'm pretty sure you post twice as often as I do, Vixie.

Hope everybody is either having a wonderful year or that it is getting better. And Rysky, you can come visit the snow at my house any time. Better hurry though. Temps are expected to get back into the 40s this weekend.

Alas, Lady Rysky, my weekend has started with me needing to go into work. Fortunately it is only a few hours and I am getting paid OT and weekend differential. Then my weekend will be awesome.


Just got back from my monthly game day. One more low-tier game and my Ranger will be 3rd level. The second session was a high-tier game, for which I used a Pre-gen. Killed a Crag Linnorm. It wasn't so tough. If anyone's interested, the games were #9-10 and #9-11.

Awww poor Linnorm... did anyone suffer the Death Curse?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The save was made. Party makeup was two rogues, a cleric, a psychic, an occultist, and a wizard (me).

Round 1. Psychic fires crossbow for a crit. Linnorm uses breath weapon against one of the rogues. Saving throw plus Evasion equal no damage.Wizard casts Magic Weapon on the cold iron dagger of one of the rogues. Cleric casts Burst of Radiance, blinding the Linnorm. One rogue attacks the linnirm while the other moves to flanking. Occultist fires Crossbow.

Round 2. Psychic fires crossbow for another crit. Linnorm flails about, blinded. Wizard ( me ) casts Lightning Bolt. Rogue attacks with a cold iron dagger. Second rogue does a Crit Sneak Attack. Occultist fires crossbow, scoring a crit and killing the Linnorm.

That's a lot of crits. Reminds me of my WotR game where a nabasu managed to paralyze everyone but the paladin with a mass hold person, and the paladin responded with 4 crits in 6 attacks, also a 2 round kill.


If I wasn't there, I'd have dismissed it as a tall tale. But, it happened. Why, oh why does everyone have better dice than me?

I had a decent weekend: not as productive as I had hoped, but not awful. One of the highlights (maybe?) is encouraging me to continue my bad habit of rambling in this thread about LGBTQ+ lit., serious or otherwise, that I’m reading.

This weekend: Fiona Cooper’s Heartbreak on the High Sierra. Self-identified lesbian spaghetti western. Westerns aren’t really my genre, so there’s a trivial anecdote behind my reading it.

Snooty and wannabe, faux-radical aside on art:
You see, there’s an exhibit going on at the fancy museum of fine art back home on “The Art of the Western,” one of those weird stop-gap things to bring in the punters while negotiating with the fancy galleries abroad for something worth anyone’s time. Or whatever the rationale is. Anyway, my mum’s gone to see it three times, mainly for a school project, and been consistently horrified: the exhibit gestures feebly towards post-colonial perspectives, and fails miserably. (Hint: scenes of race-motivated violence are not properly described as depicting “rambunctious cowboys.”) To cheer her up, I told her about the ghastly novel I had seen on the shelf of one of the bookstores in my neck of the woods, at which she promptly told me I just had to acquire said novel. Since I aspire to be, if nothing else, a dutiful daughter, part of this weekend now involved reading an intentionally trashy western. The things one does out of filial affection! :)

Long story short, Cooper’s novel has its moments, particularly when the narrator tips the wink to the audience and reveals the gooey sentimentality underneath her tough-stuff mask. (Of course, this doesn’t speak at all to the cringeworthy experiences of a certain faerie by the name of Q.– on these messageboards. ;) ) Unfortunately, the novel falls headlong into the “magic Indian” trope, and there’s a lot of cowboy bluster that I don’t think gains much by just tweaking the genders of who gets to do the blustering. Final verdict: Alright for an idle afternoon, if one wants to switch off one’s brain and be reminded of the sort of pulp westerns do (in both good and bad ways), but only if one can find a library or cheap used copy.

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's Monday! ...I could go for a nap.

Working on brushing up Thyste for Rise of the Runelords run. Someone pointed out that I can use the Magical Lineage trait, my Marid bloodline, the Rime Spell feat, and Fireball to become absolutely monstrous at level 6, so I'm looking forward to that!

Sorry to hear, John, I know we've been concerned about that for a while. Best of luck to her!


My Mother is home now. Her blood sugar was under 60, and the paramedics said her BP was 203 over something. The first BP in the hospital was 180 over 108. She's about to have a talk with her Primary Care. I really wish I knew what's going on.

Raven, Vixie, thank you both very much.
