So, I've been getting caught up on new Paizo threads (for example, did you know about this D&D Essentials thing?), and I came across this, which killed a few hundred thousand neurons.

Moff, don't read this. I don't want you to experience apoplexy.

At what point can a GM allow there players to control there companions
in combat without feeling like there ignoring the rules?

Glad you could make it. You're going to miss the vote on whether we allow Urizen to join...

Oops. I meant "as long as there not sock puppets". ;)

You know...in the Navy, referrences to socks have a whole different connotation. I'm just sayin'.


People been busy while I've been doing professorial stuff.

Q:
Am I the only one who laughs every time I see the "Forced to Role-Play" thread pop up?

The stuffed Dolphin creeps me out. It is staring at me with cold, lifeless eyes...

Double "there" caught in the spoiler. YEAH! Next up, Studpuffin.

Tis a silly thread, that "Forced to Role-Play" one. I thought it was a Star Wars PBP at first. :P

Good. I mean, WTF? "Let's play Monopoly. I'm going to force you to roll the dice." Good grief, the world is weird.

Oh. I thought someone was sharing just a little too much about their personal life.

Edit: Sorry..."there personal life."

Atlanta?
Yes. I'm very excited about visiting the underwater Coca-Cola factory. Although, I hear disappointing things about mermaid anatomy. Oh well. There will be free booze to wash down all those lectures and read papers.
Enjoy your trip to Atlanta.

Thanks, Badgah.


Evening.

Underwater coca-cola factory?

:confused:

lol. In light of that comment that whole thread became so much less annoying. :)


Dan is having way too much fun prepping for gaming. We start Witchwar Legacy tonight and I am hearing much too much of the evil DM laugh. Well, that and he likes poking fun at my poor character who has an unrequited crush on a fellow party member. She has a 27 Charisma. He has an 8. For some reason this makes the situation so much more amusing. Lately it's kind of been the how can we make Elijah's life a living hell game. Sigh. Serving up a side of heartbreak to go with that steaming dish of humiliation. ;)

(In case you can't tell I'm really looking forward to gaming. I am so burnt out right now. This is like the only non-responsible adult thing I get to do all week.)

Yeah, for a private university with tenure track.

To answer your earlier query, I tried to link the episode of Futurama, "The Deep South," but there's some new YouTube TV Series thing. Anyone else run into this bullcrap before?

Ah. For some reason I thought the name of the module was Witchwar something else. I was trying to figure out how WW and LoF might be mashed, and coming up with fail.

OK, thanks.

I haven't watched enough Futurama to have caught on to the allusion. I don't spend much time on youtube either except to occasionally listen to some music. I guess I don't have much of a life. ;)

Good luck with the job hunt.

lol. That would be an...interesting mashup to try and do.....not really sure how that would work though.....all the ice would melt. :)

I never thought I would say this but I think I miss AD&D.

Fighting over the placement of prepositional phrases or editing consistencies as the basis over whether a game is fun is so disheartening. I wouldn't care so much but it has sort of infused the culture at large...I just don't remember it being as bad as it seems *now*

Is this what getting old feels like?

Lack of internet. The arguments were always there, but the GM had the final say. It's still that way, some people just have trouble accepting that. Games are on an individual basis, not some meta-physical perfect game that only exists in thought experiments.

Yeah...

I know that but sometimes I still naively believe that the dynamic will shift.

Ultimately I think it isn't just the internet but the need to lay out game books in an increasingly technical manner or rather that people expect a more "computer" like interaction of known terms and verified dependencies.

My bread and butter is the Internet so I take the good with the bad but I think the increase of like minded access and more strict a+b=c layouts and interpretations make someone like me nostalgic for the days where I just said "I climb the wall".

It's probably all of those things ... but mainly I blame the internet.
