Hah, the way I heard the story, he didn't even ask. WHen they yelled action the guy did his sword spin, and Ford just pulled out the gun and shot the blank, and the sword guy just went with it. (Which would make him an awesome improv actor!)

Your version is more likely, I'll admit. :)

Pretty sure from what I've heard the whole scene was reworked, I don't think there's that much improv when it comes to actual filming, but they do occasionally change things on the fly. It's just that when the cameras were rolling they had to know what they were doing as film is expensive.

Also according to Ford it took at least two takes, the first time the stuntman really padded his now greatly reduced roll in the film, moaning and groaning, staggering here and there, before finally crumbling down to the ground and dying. Then they got another take where he just fell down dead. They kept the second take.

Hi guys

Sorry for my silence, as you guys must have heard we are back at work now. I’m exhausted, but I am planning to get this brawl started in a big way this weekend

Yay! Glad to hear you're back at work Patrick. That's got to be a relief.

Well, RP time-line-wise we havent actually had time to go (finish) shopping yet, (Thats what were doing that got us into this fight!) ;P

Up to Pat of course! :)

Everything mentioned above so far falls under 'Wondrous Items', which means Justin can make them! (Provided he can find a partner or scrolls for some of the spells, etc) We just have to be 'realistic' (in a fantasy game, lol!) about the amount of time each item takes to make.

Like I said, I think there's precedent for making multiples-of-same-items-at-the-same-time, but individual or specialty items would still be one at a time. SO basically one a day.

Huh means I could afford a headband of charisma +6 and still have the gold left for the belt so go for it methinks.

Yeah, that would make more sense.

Still, a good story either way! :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I’m cool with Justin crafting whatever he can. We can set up a lab in the Silver Rose (unless he wants to do it in his apt)

Merle wouldn’t have anything in this fight, as you guys had just started shopping.

I’m planning on Sunday morning, so say tuned


Pat is such a nice monkey!
:)

Well, I actually like the idea of setting up a lab in the Rose offices, as you suggested.

As much fun as it would be to go with the inspirational material here, I really think that makes much more sense, as then others who may have or take other creative feats can all use it.

AND it makes it MUCH easier to make use of cooperating with others when making items. (For aid another, and making use of spells that Justin may not have to fulfill creation requirements)

I'll check in when able, tomorrow is last day of show/load out/reset, as well as Big Game day (Aw whom I kidding? I'm not watching THAT game since the Saints got robbed!) ;P But I'll be back at SOME point tomorrow!

OH yeah, just FYI-

I started working on the next chapter of the Justin journal yesterday, Finally. (it was a section that is less convoluted than most, our conversations were actually flowing) and I started reading ahead, just a little, to see where I wanted to go with it writing wise,...

Yeah, that was page 75.
I'm now past page 101, past the mortuary bit and into the plane of fire!

Yeah,... really good reading there! I cant wait to actually journal-ize it!

SOOOO good! I LUV this game! :)


Hey all,
Just to let you know,

One of my best friends in the world is dying from cancer and organ failure right now. I have been busting my hump all week trying to get my ducks in a row at work so I can leave my student workers in charge and go see him.
I will be flying to OKlahoma tomorrow to be there with the rest of our friends and spend his last few days by his side.
(There are 4 of us who have been together since we met in college. No matter how far away we move, we stay in touch and always seem to drift back together, no matter how briefly.)

So, no matter your personal beliefs, i would be very appreciative for any and all prayers, well-wishes, positive thoughts, etc. you could send his way. His Family and friends will be needing them.

I will try to stay up, but honestly will not likely be paying attention too much to online stuff for a week or so. Apologies in advance.

Thank you all,

Sorry to hear that Rags :-(

Thank you Shadow.

Actually, I'm fairly sure that all of 'The Four Amigos' have had cancer at one time. THIS one just discovered it too D@#$ late. Stage 4 at discovery.

At this time, I am seriously channeling my inner Ryan Reynolds/Deadpool,...

You and your friend have my sympathy and well wishes, I lost my last grandmother about two weeks ago and even though we weren't close it was still tough, and so losing a close friend must absolutely terrible.


Thanks Guy.
My condolences for your grandmother. Close or not, that can't be easy.

I have lost others. My dad, my grandmother(s) etc, but this is the first time I will lose a dear friend.

I'm not dealing with it terribly well I admit. But I'll figure it out.
:)
I always do.
;P

Thanks all for the sympathetic ear. Have a good weekend!

There's a big difference also between losing someone that's been around for 95 years and someone who should still have a couple decades of healthy life ahead of them.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Sorry to hear about your friend Rags

And I (once again) owe y’all an apology. I’m finding the muse has deserted me, but I think she might be showing up again. Cross your fingers and I’m going to try and update this weekend

No worries, take your time, we will be here! That Muse is a fickle thing.

I'm terribly sorry Rags. Hang on to the memories.


No worries Pat!
The muse, she is a finicky mistress.
But almost always worth waiting for! ;)


And thank you all for the kind words.

My friend has passed, it was a race between the flight i booked and his final breath.

I was just a little bit late. As usual. :(
(But he knew I was coming!) :P

We friends spent a very long, late night saying goodbye with his family and dealing with the passing. I will return in a few weeks to be at the funeral/wake that they are planning.

I know that his family and friends are appreciative of your thoughts and prayers.

And I thank you personally. And for them.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't make it Rags, you tried, and I'm sure your friend had some relief just knowing you were trying to make it, but I suppose death is often inconvenient. As Mark said treasure the memories, our friends, family, and loved ones will always be happy and healthy there.


Thanks,

Death is indeed 'inconvenient'. It is also, sadly, a part of life.

Doesn't mean I have to LIKE it! :P

I have many great memories of my friend, and after talking more with our collective friends and his family, I now have even more stories! He has no fear of being forgotten. it is amazing how much of an impact that we make on the others around us. And don't even realize it. And it is sometimes the smallest things that make the biggest impact!

I am now back at work, I will return in about a month for the funeral/wake/(whatever they calling it) and I'll have to deal with the loss again. But for now, I am good. :)

Hey all,
I have been motivated lately,

I present to you, FINALLY, another chapter of JUSTIN'S STORY- A SILVER ROSE ADVENTURE!

PART THE SIXTH

4 pages of Pbp, 20 pages of text! (Mostly single spaced)
;P

Where our friends learn a little more about each other, and finally begin to get a clue in their mystery.

Slowly but surely, things are starting to get interesting for our intrepid heroes,...

Sorry for your loss.


Thanks Mark. :)


Hello all,
Just checking in. Making sure that the site isn't not alerting me to new posts again. :)

I hope everyone is doing OK?
Or at least as less-stressful as possible? :)

I'm just staying busy at work, (Very easy to do!) and plugging away at the next chapter of the journal.

And looking forward to Mardi Gras with a mixture of anticipation (Days off! YAY!) and dread, (MArdi Gras traffic, in a small college town with no alternate routes! YAY???)
;P

Happy Hump Day to all!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Actually I just popped in to tender my apologies once again

*sigh*

I can blame a lot of things for my absence, but in the end, it is me. I have not been feeling the creative urge, and suddenly I’m 3+ weeks behind.

Please bear with me. I hope I can shake this off soon.


Shadow's Status

No worries :-)


No Worries Pat!

I was not complaining, (I was a teensy bit concerned maybe?) :)

With all going on on my side, I understand, believe me!
:)

I hope all is well, you go do you! We'll be here ! :)

And thank you!

I'm just glad to know everything is okay.


I am working on the Chapter 7 of the journal!
So close, and yet SO far!
;P

Happy weekend,
And a Happy Mardi Gras to all! And to all a crazy bead-throwing, drinking week!

(Until Tuesday night at mid-night, then it ends.) ;P

I can't remember if Karrin displayed her master of disguise skills in this upcoming section or not.


Perhaps? Maybe? (I know it's coming up soonish)
But as she is not currently with Justins group, that might not get the full treatment except as an what-happened-to-us story.
:(

I DO believe (because I've been re-reading a lot) that she used her mad disguise skilzz when preparing to infiltrate the Mortuary. So THAT will be fun!
;)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Ok. Trying to reboot yet again. I’m sorry guys, this span of writer’s block has gone on too long. I’m updating a bit now


Is all good pat!

Hope that your safe in the crazy weather!

Unless your a snow-bunny, in which case, enjoy! :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

No snow here. Just rain. I started updating then another distraction hit me. I plan to get more done tomorrow


Distractions do that I've noticed.

What were we talking about?!?

;P

Nighters all!
(I will work on Chapter 7 for a little bit more before I crash) ;)

Good news all!

After only a month, give or take, I present to you

Justin's Story- Chapter 7- A little Action!

4 PBP pages turned into 25 pages of pulse-pounding excitement!

Well,... turned into 25 hopefully entertaining pages at any rate.
:)

I hope you all enjoy, I honestly dont know when I'll get a chance to work on the Chapter 8.
;P


Hey all,

just saying hello.
"Hello."

:)

Sorry I havent been chatty as usual, been busy.

I'm still around, just working and dealing with the usual stuff.

Hope all are well, I'll try to make some time to start working on chapter 8 of the journal, Some good fun stuff coming up! :)

Talk to you all soon(ish) :)
Happy Week(end) to all!

Just rereading....gods I miss Drazek, lol


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Lol, I know, Right?

Dont worry, there are still a few good 'chapters' of him and Bethany to get through before they depart our company.
:)

When I try to start working on the journal, I get so caught up in the re-reading that I dont get much writing actually done.
;P

And then there are parts that practically write themselves. I mean sometimes I literally just copy/paste because there is not much I could possibly do to improve it. So I dont try. I dont want to ruin the great stuff that is already there!

I Luv this thread. :D

I vaguely remember some friction between Drazek and Karrin.

ROFL<

I vaguely recall friction between Draz and, well, everyone.
;P

I think the character liked it that way. Just a theory.

Bethany was a different kind of friction ;p

After the ice-breaking that is.


Any idea when the game is going to pick back up?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hi all, me here

I want to pick this game up again, I truly do. This has been frustrating for me as well as y’all. I am going to make a concerted effort to respark this. I don’t want it to die, and I honestly have some seriously kick ass stuff in the future. Please stay tuned , and I swear I will find a way to get this going!


Hey its all good Pat,
Believe me, I KNOW about RL and busy, and etc etc.

:)

I know it'll be worth the wait!

One wise-cracking wizard will still be here! (for better or worse)
;P

Just an FYI Pat, we may have lost Sophi, there has not been a post on Paizo from flash_cxxi since early February...


Huh, yes i see that Flash_cxxi last posted Feb 13 in the Journal thread.
Im not sure about elsewhere.
I hope all is well.

Hope all have a good week!
<Crosses fingers!>


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I can shake Flash on Facebook. He just started a new job , or training for one. It might be distracting him.

I just need to get my own s%!@ together

Honestly, I didn’t realize how much of my best work was done while working overnight shifts. Now that I am working a 9-5 job involving intensive computer use it’s hard for me to want to sit down to another couple hours on the computer at home.

But, I do love this game. I love the characters, I am proud of our history and the stories. So, I will attempt to get in the habit of at least iphoning something in to get the story moving.
