I ran into both Patrick and Woran. One was in each of two Planescape games I played.

(And, yes, I experienced extreme guilt for letting this one slide many months back....)

The planescape game was insanely awesome.

Also, jet lag is killing me

Hi all.

I find myself tied up with job procurement intensely. I apologize I haven't updated recently. I'm attempting to carve out some time this afternoon.

Kinda stuck waiting on you Mr Monkey meow!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Sorry. I was trying to get caught up after the website problems this past week. I will update more tonight

The temperatures have been ridiculous here and even the AC at the office cant cope. I frequently have a headache and I dont think I've been able to convey trough text what my idea is/was.

I was kinda waiting for the reactions of the 'bystanders' to see if they would react to Tsuns claims. Maybe something along the lines of 'those guys have been donw there for years' or something like that.

I just couldnt that idea out my head and on 'paper'.

I think its better if we scout the place first, but I dont know if we can get congruence to fit


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Yeah I was kind of waiting for clarity of your actions, but I can forge ahead should you want.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Yea please do. Half the time I dont even know which direction is up anymore from the heat.


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

Congruence is ready to charge in - but is there a DM ruling on whether they will fit? If not, that's fine. Just need to get more resourceful. :)


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

I love my modron buddy :)

We should start carrying a bucket of lard for such occasions.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Just a quick heads up:

The job situation might be accelerating soon. I might have an offer that entails me moving. I will keep you appraised, but it might mean an extended hiatus until I am resettled. Thank you for your patience

-Patrick

Good luck with the job!


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Oeh, good luck!


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

Good luck!! Hope it all works out great and we'll be here!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hi folks.

I just wanted to drop another line. Things are accelerating, and I really think that my posting rate will be kind of spotty running into August. I am hoping that my life evens out before the summer is over, but with a new job, a new city, and a new apartment it might be a lot to handle.

I enjoy being your GM. I do apologize that my posting hasn't been as frequent as it was in earlier parts of my life. Bear with me, and I will do my best to advance the storyline. Just please accept that there will be delays and that I am still here, and still dedicated to the games.

Thanks!


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Good luck patrick!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Thanks! I am actually very excited. I have always wanted to spend some serious time in DC, and my perspective office is right next to the Smithsonian museum and the Library of Congress


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Fancy-smancy :)
Can you tell us about your new job?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I'll be (pending approval) working as a paralegal for the Federal Trade Commission. It's a really exciting opportunity, and one that will open up a lot of future employment in the federal system. I expect I'd work there for a year or two and then transfer somewhere else

Oh cool. So is it a government job?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

It is. Right on the National Mall. So I am near the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, all the various monuments, the Capitol Building.

Very nice Patrick, congratulations.

That sounds pretty cool.

I'm not sure if its the case in the US, but over here government jobs often tend to pay fairly well and have good perks in terms of leave, working flexibility, etc. - hope its the case for you!


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

I did some goverment work (in the netherlands), and while it was good pay, the perks really made it worthwhile.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Lots of good perks, one of the few pensions left in the work place, and a decent salary

Woo-hoo! Good luck handling all that eustress!

Hello, everyone!

My apologies for being incommunicado this week. It was unplanned and unintended.

We went on a cruise to Alaska. It was wonderful! We spent a week exploring the Inside Passage and visited Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria. I wanted to be prepared, and took steps to ensure I could continue posting before we left. The cruise line offered on-ship Wi-Fi. I paid for it for the whole week. I also checked with T-Mobile customer service, who assured me that I would have coverage in Juneau and Victoria.

The Wi-Fi did not work, and I only had emergency reception at every port of call. I could not receive texts, check email, or get on the internet for the entire week. It was very frustrating to have such a technology failure.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

That sucks. But I'm glad you had fun discovering Alaska. Welcome back :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Yes welcome back! The plot line has been kind of slow anyway. My fault, I'm still in the throes of getting my house packed up


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

Ug, that's annoying! But I hope the rest of the cruise was nice. That's on my "to do one of these years" list.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Heads up time folks. Come Saturday I will be going on vacation to Canada. In the past my cell use has been restricted by the international exigencies. I will possibly post depending on WIFI access. I will be back on a regular posting schedule 8/15

Have a great week! -Patrick

Eat some poutine for us!

So, my long-suffering players:

I was a bit over-optomistic about my engaement level when it came to these last few weeks on Cape Cod. Things got so bad I even forgot about the NecroNomicon in Providence this weekend (which I was looking forward too-just got overwhelmed with work and moving)

I am going to try and keep you all updated, BUT

I am travelling into in partibus infidelium soon. Very soon. Like a week.

I had no earthly idea how I could have so much crap.

I am packing solo, and still working a full compliment of days up until I leave.

Please please please pardon me. I beg your indulgence as I try and rip out of my cocoon and take flight. Honsetly I don't know if things will be settled out until October.

I will attempt to keep you posted, but I felt I should give you a heads up anyway.


M Jotun (Stone) Jotun Paragon 1 -- HP 20 : AC 16 CMD 16 TAC 12 FAC 14 : slam 1d20+4; 1d6+4 : grapple 1d20+9 : F+5 R+2 W+0 : INIT+4 Perc+4 CMB+5

Not a problem. Just keep us updated.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Do take care of yourself Patrick. And good luck. We'll still be here :)

No problem Pat, and good luck with it all.

I’ve been somewhat busy and stressed myself recently (not quite that level of busy though) and not that focused on the game. I apologise, and am hopeful that things will calm down for me soon, maybe coinciding with Patrick getting settled in the new city and new job.

I understand as well, that's life. I'm still here regardless.


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

No worries, good luck to you! I hope things work out for you.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Ok. Quick update.

Rough weekend, but after this and a few days unpacking I should be ready to resume the game.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Good to hear. Do take your time to settle in. That is important.


female, catfolk rogue (U0 1/sorceress 1 | HP 19/19 | AC 13 (17), FF 10 )14), TAC 13 | CMB +0, CMD 13 | F +3, R +5, W +1 | Low-light vision; Per +3 (+4) | Special Attacks: Sneak Attack 1d6 | Spells: 1st 4/4

I've started having some serious computer problems the last couple of days and this may lead to spotty posting until I can replace it. Hopefully that won't be the case and I will keep you updated as best I can until then.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Sooooooo .....

Taking a bit longer for me to get settled

I am moving closer to returning to posting

Thank you all for you patience!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

OK. It's been too long since I touched base, and that's my fault, mea culpa.

This has been a rough two weeks. For those of you that have my FB, my pup got very sick. I almost lost him. Combined with the new job and new apartment and setting up an eBay store to sell my collection of books, it's been a rough time

However, I should have some time Monday. I want to keep these games going. I apologize for the delay, it's just been a rough time trying to get square here.

Look for some updates Monday!


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

We've been dealing with a sick pet, too, thankfully not that dire yet, but up enough in years and with increasing health problems, we are starting to have tough conversations.

We're here when you are ready! Take care!


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Oh no poor pup. I hope he gets better.
Take care patrick
