Tell me more of these unusual strategies

I've found that offering people immunity on a color is a great way to get them to agree to give up the final card to complete it.

It gets really funny when I do this several times in a row and create a large empire where immunity won't save you from eventually going under. The "Oh Crap" looks as each one realizes what I did are priceless.

I imagine they also get odd looks from the idea of strip Monopoly as well.


Well, just finished Mass Effect 3. I can no longer go on living in the delusion that the characters are actually my friends in real life...

If Liara was real, negotiations would be much easier.

If her talking them into doing what she wanted didn't work, they would just go through the nearest wall.

Sorry, dear, but you'll have to wait awhile longer. I'm still trying to broker intel on the Turian leaders. The leader has a strange love of Krogans and this should get them to support us!

Monopoly brings out the evil in all of us.
It's the same reason I avoid MMOs.

MMO's bring out the evil in you?

Also, yes, avoid Monopoly. And Risk. But not Settlers of Catan. The worst you have there is all the wood you have for sheep.

The overcloud was generous this weekend, and allowed the sky fire to be present all weekend! :D While not my favourite fire (I prefer the kind I roast marshmallows over), the kidlet enjoys the sky fire, and the walks it enables us to have. We probably walked for around 8 hours between Saturday and Sunday. He loved it. :)

Pressure changes actually, but they are often connected to sudden rains/storms, less so to constant raining.

But from what I heard the best time for Poles to go to Ireland for work has already passed...

Some of my friends spend years there - one of them meet her husband in Ireland, I think, before they moved to Germany.

The guy I mentioned recently whose daughter is getting eye surgery soon went to Ireland for a year after his wife left him, if I remember correctly.

Pride weekend was amazing. I was at Harlem Pride and the general parade in the Village. Twas wonderful as I really needed the hours, and my boss promised more events in the future. It was a bit awkward at first as it's been a looooong time since I've been in the field, but I got back into the swing of things eventually.

Saturday was also my friend's batchelorette party where we went to d20 burlesque! This past show was the Night Vale Burlesque show, and it was wonderful despite my knowing absolutely NOTHING about Night Vale in the slightest. The first act was my favorite, a filler act, I believe, but she was so..ah..well...my type, it didn't matter. She left early and I didn't get to meet her after the show, but I DID meet with the emcee, whom I have seen perform before at other d20 burlesque events and is one of the creators in addition to a performer. She complimented my bondage fairies shirt, which I wore just for the occasion!!!!! The other acts included burlesque versions of the funky cloud that hangs over Night Vale, the sheriff who oversees the town, the crowd favorite the Eternal Scouts(had nothing to do with Sailor Moon, but they were creepy/hot as hell!!!), and the Old Lady Who Lives In Your House. I took a few pics, but I will not post them here for fear of upsetting the mods(pasties only cover so much...).

It was a good weekend. First good weekend in a while that didn't involve a Fawtl!

True, true. Ireland is not the best place for anyone looking for a job for the moment. I hope your friends had a good impression of the country. It's great, really, and the people are lovely, just as long as you can punch through the racism.

Oh! Almost forgot, this was the first d20 burlesque show with a paired male act, two guys were the doctor from another dimension or something.

Okay, update on the game...

His reaction upon seeing me? "Oh holy mother of god! What hideous torture happened to your face?!"

The group doesn't appreciate it when I make comments about my looks. His suggestion went over about as well as suggesting changing the flag of Israel to be red with a swastika in the middle. And, no, I am not exaggerating; the sheer hate in that room was so tangible the more skittish of my cats refused to get near people for a bit.

So, needless to say, it turned from a game of us just being us to a game of us intentionally trying to derail his campaign and make him cry.

To start with, I decided to play a bard with Perform (sing). I can't sing. At all. And I made it worse by exaggerating my lack of ability to carry a tune by singing in a high pitch and screeching the high notes. I sang every chance I got. Some of the rest of the group joined in.

The minister of our group played a rogue in the style of Grand Theft Auto. The campaign was almost derailed by his character selling drugs to a city guard and then stabbing the guard in the back to steal the drugs, but a timely duet distracted the GM from unleashing the smack down.

One of the people in the group is a MMA fighter and staunch supporter of women's rights. She played a sexist male character who treated female characters like crap, did a thirty-minute in-character rant on how women only belong in the kitchen and the bedroom with enough faked sincerity that it almost seemed out of character (she was in the drama club in high school), and roleplayed bowel movements in graphic detail in between bouts of shouting at female NPCs to get back in the kitchen. Just as the minister's character was about to get arrested for murdering a guard, her and I broke out into a duet about bowel movements. She made it a point to match my singing skills perfectly; all animals fled the room in fear and refused to return for the rest of the night. It was beautiful.

The used car salesman? Well, apparently he used to be in the Marines. No wonder he's the member of the group with his OOC morals being held by his characters as well (this, ironically, makes his characters the most moral of the group). Well, last night, he wasn't moral at all. He played a paladin who was basically CE with LG written on his sheet. He ranted at a guard, full-on drill instructor style, until the GM was almost on the verge of tears. That happened quite rapidly, surprisingly.

The fifth member of our merry band is the group's other woman player. She played a pyromaniacal sorceress who kept setting things on fire. And this entire thing was happening in an inn. So, needless to say, a lot of the building was probably on fire by the time she was done, but the GM was too distracted by having one of his NPCs murdered, the bowel movement duet, and being the subject of a psycho drill sergeant to notice.

Now, keep in mind all of the above is just the pre-AP introductory roleplaying where our characters get to know each other.

The AP in question is one that involves a temple of Desna and a goblin attack as the first battle. I'm certain everyone knows which one. Well, when I made my bard, I picked Goblin as one of the bonus languages. The background was that the bard is an expert on goblin lore. GM approved it. I think you can see where this is going.

The GM finally managed to convince us to stop terrorizing the locals and head to the temple. We show up, goblins attack, GM thinks he's finally got us back on track. I promptly roll a natural 20 on a Bluff check that, combined with speaking Goblin and my total bonuses to the roll, allowed me to convince one group of attacking goblins that the other wants to steal their words. The GM just stared at me for about a minute before deciding to go with it. The group stood by and watched as the goblins duked it out.

Then the Desna priest came out. Well, I had earlier forged a note from the goblins about planning an attack. I handed it to the rogue, who planted it in the priest's pockets with a very nice roll. Then the paladin called the guards and turned the priest in for collaborating with the goblins. One pocket search later and the GM is trying to figure out how to salvage his campaign. He suggests returning to the inn we started in, at which point the sorceress helpfully reminded him that she sat it on fire.

At about this point, the GM realizes that, between everything we've done, there's no salvaging this. Any further attempts to do so would only allow us to make things worse. So, naturally, he calls up the group member currently away on business and gives a full, detailed rant on everything we've done.

The group member's response?

"Oh. I see they toned it down on you. I was afraid they'd act normal. Oh, and my business trip has been extended for another week, so that's a full month of GMing. Or you could just pay me back that money you owe me."

At that point, the GM curled up into a fetal ball and wouldn't respond to outside stimuli for about 45 minutes.


welcome Mister Lord President, SIR !
