Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

Waiting for Kilarra to retcon her action as she does not havd enough movement to reach the old woman.

Oh I also ran 20.5 km last sunday at a 6 min 26 s/ km pace. No knee issues after I wore knee supports for both knees. That was like epic awesome because the stuff holding me back for long distances was one of my knees giving problems after 14+ km. And that's not a shabby pace by my standards either.

Great idea with knee supporters. Knee problems only get worse with age, speaking from the point of an older person not insinuating anyone else's age :)

That's... 12 miles!!!! oh goodness.

I drove over 400 miles at an average rate of 80mph, does that count for something.

with three kids!

Also I apologize for holding everyone up. I assumed I'd be computer accessible this weekend, but I was instead phone bound.

That sounds like a try-not-to-sleep situation. I like to consider myself a patient person, but 5 hours behind the wheel is pretty rough.

I hope you took breaks. The last time my bro was doing single driver thing we stopped in quite a number of places, one being dateland, for date icecreams ^^

I lub sweet stuff? Which probably isn't good for me :P

I would say someone who runs 20.5km can definitely treat herself to a sweet every once in a while Mort ;)

And yeah, I stand with Piotr on the knees thing (also not insinuating anyone else's age :D) - I guess the only thing to do is keep up with the exercise to strengthen the leg musculature. Something I have not been doing.

400 miles with three kids... ARE WE THERE YET?!

The nice thing about various navigation systems is no one ever asks that anymore. They can always see how much time we have left so no more of that part. It was long but the kids were really good. No date ice cream though :)

I’ve actually been narrating movement for Hanako so she would be along that north wall, but that might not be the best angle.

(I have a new phone so I will download the app so I can move my avatar when playing by phone.)

Yeah, if fighters can circle, that will help.

Also, I may be better off using biting words instead of archery (at least until I level enough to shoot multiple times).


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

Seriously though weight plays a huge part on knee issues so if you're overweight you might really want to consider cutting that extra weight. And also, squat more.


Piotr: Fighter 2/Spirtualist 1| HP -1/28 | AC 21 T 12 FF 19 | Ft +6 Rf +4 Wi +6*(+2 Ann In Brain,+1vs fear) | Init +2 | Perc +2 l CMD 17 | spells: level 1 0/2 | conditions: -2 dex -2 con --- Ann: HP 19 | AC 16(20 mage armor) T 12 FF 14 | Ft +2 Rf +5 Wi +5 | Init +2 | Perc +0

I do not want to squat anymore!

So if I understand correctly, I'm providing soft cover to the old hag because I'm in between her and our archers, yes?

Well... I have excessive weight, but I don't think I rank as overweight. I think I've just been idle for too long - need to get back walking and cycling.

I am with Piotr though, no squatting thank you :P

(I think so yes Kilarra)

Okay, I'll try to make things easier. I do still plan to charge a lot, though.

Piotr will do the same but only if he can keep the protection up.

Question: are ranged touch attacks affected by melee? I can cast Biting Words when we fight the other cultist leader. (I get three attacks with each casting, and I believe I can even add damage from Deadly Aim, but not Point Blank Shot.)

Of course, I only have two spells left, so what I use for attack can’t be used for healing.

Oh, definitely charge! One hit from Kilarra is three of my arrows.

I would say just circle around when doing so is safe. You have no choice but to be between enemies and archers when there are multiple enemies.


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

Ranged attacks of any kind are affected by melee. You can be using scorching Ray, the results are the same. Only ranged stuff that is not affected by melee are those that do not require attack rolls to hit, like throwing a fireball.

Nuts. Should’ve stuck with arrows, despite the 50% miss chance. I guess they’re not intelligent (0-2 INT = immune to the spell)?

They seem mindless (0 int), that would make them immune to mind-affecting spells like Sleep.


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

The exact wording is immune to mind affecting effects.

Do I shoot again, or wait a bit?


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

Sorry if I seem a little off lately, we're working one week at work one week from home and the week at work, everyone and their dog is looking for me, the doorbell linking to the phone wasn't working due to some well intentioned(but misguided colleague) setting call forwarding and people getting pissed at me for missing deliveries(hey, the phone at my desk didn't even ring!, so how was I to know?)

Not to mention work is like doing a shuttle run between my file cabinet and the phone. The last time I looked at my job description, I don't think being able to do shuttle run was part of it..

You can't be expecting me to sit at my desk all day long when I'm expected to get filing done at the same time, can you?

I am sorry to hear things are such a complication at the moment Mort... Hope everyone in yours and your husband's family are ok.

You don't seem 'off' to me.

What is 'shuttle run'? Is that like taking a bus to get somewhere, or is it a type of running?

In game I had mentioned that I was holding my breath. Was that accidentally overlooked or did it have no effect?


Piotr: Fighter 2/Spirtualist 1| HP -1/28 | AC 21 T 12 FF 19 | Ft +6 Rf +4 Wi +6*(+2 Ann In Brain,+1vs fear) | Init +2 | Perc +2 l CMD 17 | spells: level 1 0/2 | conditions: -2 dex -2 con --- Ann: HP 19 | AC 16(20 mage armor) T 12 FF 14 | Ft +2 Rf +5 Wi +5 | Init +2 | Perc +0

No worries Mort! It has to be scary and irritating at the same time. Remember that the irritating people expecting you to handle all things are irritated and stressed as well, though that does not give them a right to take it out on you, it just allows you to understand them before yelling back that they are irritating.

I went to a national conference for public libraries today, and it seemed a smaller turn out than normal though we still don't have any cases around this area.


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

Not according to RAW sorry it doesn't help, Kilarra.


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

I am off. Well maybe to my perfectionist standards...lol.

This is a Shuttle run

For non youtube acccess - Shuttle run.

Now assuming I have a clear path, it isn't too much of an issue to do it a couple of times, the problem is I need to dodge around cubicles, while wearing a dress, and in flats, not running shoes.

Yeah what you're saying is true. No one's actually blamed me for missing the deliveries (yet), but I've been beating myself over it because some of the stuff is important (a shipment of thermometers).

Our families are currently ok (touch wood), but it seems that more cases are popping up in Singapore, the latest one being in a school and more are popping up over the world. I heard California was the latest.

Yep, California is a long way away from Alabama though. There was a vendor at the conference from California, some of my programmers said they took the long way around it. :)

Honestly, I don’t mind not having a shot. The odds of an arrow hitting are slim with the 50% miss chance.

Speaking of odds, the odds of rolling four consecutive natural 20s are 1/160,000. I actually did that this afternoon, confirming two nat.20 crits with nat.20s. I rolled on discord and found myself checking the rolls, questioning whether I forgot the d and just added 20 to my bonus. But nope, same exact text as my round 1 rolls that both missed.

The funny thing is I was playing a Lv.8 fighter with improved crit: falchion. I just need a nat.15 to crit.

Imagine rolling all those nat.20s in one combat round and then.....

1 misses: 1d2 ⇒ 1

I think if I had the feats to spare, in this campaign I'd probably pick up blindfight. Probably not going to happen on Kilarra though. She's got a lot to work with. 5th is Unsanctioned Knowledge, and then I'm working on the Cleave tree. Improved Initiative needs to get worked in there somewhere. Weapon Focus is a maybe. I thought Shield of Swings looked fun, but it's like my last priority.

Was pretty sure that was going to be a TPK. Even started brainstorming for new characters. Good thing these guys didn't do a Coup de Gras

This week was work from home week which should be technically easier on timings for me, but I took the opportunity to get affairs settled (insurance, dental, my uncle trying to make his own makeshift weights at home - got him a gym membership and meeting up with an old friend for lunch), so it was still hectic as heck. I wonder if I'm not temperamentally suited to sitting down.

Also tried to go for a blood donation but epic failed it as my haemoglobin levels were too low (12 out of 12.5 required). I think I'm unsuited for trying to donate every 3 months. And that was despite me being on iron pills for a week.

Um... I can't remember why Piotr has a -2 on dex and con. I've looked but has failed. Thought it just might be easier to admit I'm a moron and ask before I keep hunting.

You caught something quite some time ago, then there's the onset, then there was the ghoul incident as well.

And under this,.

"Hit point and ability score damage caused by an affliction cannot be healed naturally while the affliction persists."

Thank you Mort. Very much so. I'm placing the link in my profile so I won't forget(hopefully).


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

Urgh it's always rush hour when I get back to office to clear the backlog. Hopefully working from home next week will be more sane. And 10 dungeon quests from Orna aren't very helpful for sanity either, I have to hunt those dungeons down. And running for dungeons after running 19.4 km is harsh.

I had a weird situation while on the longest dog walk I ever attempted. I followed a friend for 6km, and my legs were killing me by the time I hit 2km. However, but the time we finished the 6, I was feeling totally fine. Didn't hurt at all.

Until I woke the next morning. Then I felt awful.

For Piotr. I'm sure come next morning we can figure out how bad the disease is and make some appropriate heal checks to help you in the future. Surely Winter has some ranks in heal.


Strange Aeons Grp 2 |

If you feel oddish at the start, sometimes it's because you haven't warmed up yet. I get that some for running, like 6.30 am I'm wondering why am I running at this unholy hour on a Sunday? But it sorts itself out by the 2+km - I get my groove and run on.

You need to stretch your sore muscles out. Runners yoga. Don't worry it works for walkers too =P

I did ever get that from running(the distance done is above 15k =P), could walk fine but next day OMG my knees were killing me and I was hobbling around. I opted NOT to go to the gym because it was that bad.

Immediate mass innovation of robots that take care of all labours that would normally require groups of humans. Each human works from home and controls one of the robots.

It is possible I just came up with a new sci-fi book.
