Basically, it means two things; Humans have destroyed much of their habitat with urbanization and they've found that Humans throw away perfectly good food as well as feeding some pets outdoors. Foxes are generally very skittish of people and it's rare they attack pets. Just enjoy them. In fact, leave little toys out for them because sometimes they'll even play with them and you can watch from your window.

I applaud your response which is completely reasonable.

But, my personal mythos rating is now too high for me to inarguabley
accept such a reasonable answer. I cannot risk ruling out a priori the
approach of an "other" stumbling into my town . To make this assumption
would fly in the face of personal experience with the small-spaces between
realities -- which we all sometimes glimpse out of the corner of the eye
while glancing around -- and perhaps even see, but fail to admit to
ourselves seeing, the beings standing there looking back.

This sudden appearance of Foxes could be mundane, and as you described.
However if something of apocryphal origin has stumbled its way into my
small patch of county lanes and small horse farms, I need to aware and
prepared.

Perhaps my great-grandfathers books in the basement can point me to the
way.

Is anyone else excited about the new 2019 Conan comic release today?
Apparently, Marvel got the rights back and have [Media Alert!] assembled an "exciting creative team".

My local comic shop is in the loop, so I'm going there to make the transaction.

I'm assuming here, but I'm willing to bet that neither of us ever went to the moon using slide rules. And there were plenty of stupid people in 1969.

They have been able to manipulate us and go from a generation that went to the Moon using slide rules, doing the math in their heads, to a generation surprised the movie "The Titantic" is based on a true story.

At the Pole of Inaccessibility, dread cthulhu has harvested,
and then built, a burger king. It is not a very nice place to
work. The human help doesn't live long. And, in fact, stories
tell the missing help end up in the burgers. But always,
there are the onion rings.

It's mostly the onion rings cthulhu finds magical. Learned burger king
magicians -- wizen, sclerosus pocked men now physically atrophied due to
years-long study of moldy, accursed texts -- have conceived ways to make
a good tasting, commercially viable onion ring.

Boy oh boy, Big C is a fan!

.

Here is how you make the onion rings:

The process is unholy. One must forsake their place in existence to
have their name added, as an after thought no less, to the list of
mortal wretches wishing to make a bargain with evil for a dollop of
power.

If, with a chance equal to lightning striking a lady bug from the handle
bars of your Mom's favorite bicycle when she was 12 years old, one of
the wretches is granted some power. Then, it is he who must cook the
rings for cthulhu.

First, he must produce the onion ring's cooking oil. The method used is
unclean. The insane magician squeezes the oil out from the intestines
of seven rabid dogs.

A lead bowl must be used as the physical conduit between heat and oil.
Putting his oil in a lead bowl, the mad wizard will bring it to a boil
by heating it on a coal burning stove.

The onions must be freshly dug from the Earth. And cut sharply with a
clean, silver sacrificial dagger (of course) and gently slid into the
boiling oil. The motion of ingress for the onions into the pot must be
executed with his left hand only.

Stir until done. Then, pluck the rings out to dry on a velvet towel.

Now, that's a fine onion ring.

To heck with the animals, 2e needs to fix the dang *weapons*.

* katanas should be "S or P" (ditto arming sword and longswords).

* nodachis are basically huge katanas and don't have the Brace property (they're too excessively curved).

* The game lacks a finessable arming sword. And it's not just Hollywood either, as the Celts used similar swords a thousand years before the Norman Conquest.

* falcions (AKA messers) are one-hand-hilted weapons; the two-handed version is the kriegsmesser.

If you need a computer to play the game then it's too complicated.

I think the best math for "game play" is numerical linear algebra. And honestly recommend learning it.

Because NML can do the underlying things people need to do while playing a game (e.g. model, optimize, 'learn') all while leaving alone the dramatic results for us to emotionally enjoy. Isn't the 'drama' of seeing your decisions *put to the test* during a game sessions what ultimately makes the story telling fun and socially enjoyable?

Sometimes the crunch of how do I compute what is the best, next move to do, possibly based upon an arbitrary scoring system (e.g. XP, gold, hit points,) is where the brain-drain kicks in and tires most of us out while playing games. Because we have add dice up, then compute things (like averages), or look up table values and adjust our totals, etc.

Some people may choose to augment their decision making skills with an App written and based upon numerical linear algebra along with your favorite programming language (like Python), and others not so much.

I just watched Mr. Bulmahn run the p2e "test game" on twitch.tv. And E. Mona popped in at the end. Good stuff.

I'm placing my bet now, I think Pathfinder 2e will become the dominant Universal Game System of the future. It's mechanics can be usable in any genre or time period. e.g. Fantasy, sci-fi, cyberpunk, modern, cthulhu, etc.

Buhlman is just that good.

I foresee Paizo employing a staff of a 1000 people to keep up with demand.

... Well, old friends, we stand upon the edge of war once again. ... Out of respect, we will share our tales ...

Hail brothers!

I literally fought in the Edition Wars. It was violent and glorious.

I remember the first salvo of The Edition War, in 2007 -- it was started by "Wizards of the Coast" cancelling the magazines: ‘Dragon Magazine’ and ‘Dungeon Magazine’. And for this treason my hate for them still burns to this day.

I still boycott all WotC products and services, and have for 11 years now.

Then, with a one-two-punch WotC committed blasphemy and produced "4evil". This version fractured backward compatibility, and demanded we buy all new books again.
This caused fire to spread, and forced common men to stand and fight for their family’s lives.

Shortly after the outbreak, Paizo, quick like a kitty cat, stepped in and offered us Pathfinder 1e. It was a very sweet cherry pie. Then did the wotc fools know the error of their ways.

MBA Kung Fu mudda-fudgers... Lisa can dance! chop, chop goes the market share. chop, chop. ah hahahahahahahaaaaa.

Today… our potential sleeps with one eye open like a dragon in the belly of his mountain.

(It was actually David who came up with "4e-vil" -- in the chat room -- but I tell everyone I game with it was coined by me.)

All things must end...and this time, it is my chatroom. It's long served its purpose, but I don't have the time to properly monitor, moderate, or maintain it to the extent that I'd like. When I started the chatroom (over 10 years ago), there wasn't any place quite like it on the Internet that was easily accessible. I do take some measure in pride in that, but new places to chat about gaming are available everywhere now.

I've set up a redirect to places where you can find me, but it will take some time for the server to kick in the changes.

Thank you to everybody that spent time in my chat room, and thanks for all the fish. <3

My most sincere gratitude Lilith, and to Daigle of course. Because I think he first suggested it.

I showed up the first week you launched and, as you know, never left. Great, great memories. Huh... some of the best.

Goodbye everyone -- maybe I love you and maybe I don't.

Edit: I remember running the first game the chat room saw. It was me, Heathansson, and The Jade. Excellent stuff.
