I looked out the window and it was like being inside a snow globe. The snow is just light enough and slow enough that it looks like that. It's beautiful. :)

He said New York, NOT New York City. Two completely different things. It is like Georgia. There is Atlanta and there is the REST of Georgia. ~grins~

Or Austin and the rest of Texas.


EDIT: I figured I should clarify my feelings on recent FAQs. This falls inline, not because the other FAQ made sense (it didn't), but because it allowed characters to feel (and be) competent in their chosen fields.

On the other hand, this is a great FAQ, and I like it.

Urizen and Heathy are alive, or at least posting on Facebook.

There seem to be quite a few FaWTLs who have migrated towards being Facebook-only.

Can you guys find good, strong images?

Also: Kiarensalee, Shar, Bane, Moander, and Tymora, if possible. I can find tons of Eilistraee, and Lolth ('cause, "hot drow", I suppose).

Also, is there anyone who can give me a summary of what happened in the written work Tymora's Luck (most notably: the parts including Beshaba and Tymora, and the attempt to reunite them to make Tyche, etc.)?

Thanks, FAWTLites!

EDIT: Any other gods of bad luck or misfortune that you guys know of? I know Zyphus, but I don't really relate him that well to Beshaba.

Re-posting from earlier to see if anyone has any more link able/save able pictures!

Drejk came up with some AWESOME descriptions: but does anyone have pictures I could link (it also aids in inspiration).

Also: Freehold! I found a 2E representation of Beshaba! She looked like a weird white gnome facing off against her tomboy sister (who looked like a Halfling with covered human-proportion feet). It's on the cover of the book Tymora's Luck as part of the Finder Trilogy.

EDIT: For accuracy!


Can you post/PM those descriptions? (Or are they here in the thread and I just missed them?) Then I can try searching for images that match. =)

I would make Beshaba and Tymora twins. Twin-twins, hard if at all recognizable. With even their avatars, manifestations and copies looking alike, even if they don't want to.

For Moander I wouldn't use humanoid appearance at all. For me it is an elder deity that never comprehended humanoids. The closest it would take would be humanoid-shaped topiary or particularly huamnoidish shambling mound.

Shar would be a pale goth lady wearing black and deep blue. Occasionally appearing with jet black skin as well. I have some expended ideas about her, including reasoning for her desire to unmake the existence.

I haven't thought about Kiarensalee, despite my Faerun's drows having much more varied religion than base-line FR (in my games Lolth only completely dominates Menzoberranzan and subservient settlements, with various level of influence in other...

Here we go! Bottom of the same page, I think? Anyhoo, they were nifty. I'd be willing to accept those and/or more "official" canon art.

Afternoon FaWtLers, hope everyone is well today. Hey, remember when I joked about saying the weather was clear for so long was going to bring the rain? Well guess who got soaked walking to work today? :P Ah well, sunny again by lunchtime. And at least I'm not buried in snow! (Though a light smattering would be nice before the time of year has passed. I'm looking at you Freehold!)

its -10 right now (at 7:39am) hopefully we *might* get up to 0 tho right now they say we're topping out at -3, of course those figures make no mention of the brisk wind, needless to say this is one of those rare days where we drive to school instead of walking (assuming the car starts that is:-p)

When CraigyFerg ended his run on the Late Late Show last year, I understood all the references in the final skit except the snowglobe. I originally assumed it was an ill-fitting Citizen Kane reference until I did some searching and found out about the whole Tommy Westphall Universe.

I started playing Dragon Age: Origins about a month ago, and for nearly all of the ~25 hours I've put into it so far, something undefinable has been bugging me. Then I stumbled across this video, and it all came into focus. Seriously-- same character build, same tactics, same complaints.

I'm glad it's Friday. Also, I read up on some mythological beings (such as succubi) and found out some interesting stuff about them.

My latest song starts off "I'm a marriage guidance counsellor and I have this to say..." and then goes downhill very rapidly from that point.

Good morning FaWtLites! I hope everyone is well today, had a good night last night, and has a good day ahead. :) It's Friday, the weekend is just around the corner. Here's to a good one for all. Sláinte!

Gaming:
The game I've been playing in has evolved from Supernatural/Hunter-esque, group of normal people forced into fighting supernatural creatures beyond their ability to deal with and trying to maintain normal lives all the the while, to acting rulers of the city of Atlantis (having killed the old rulers), trying to figure out how to integrate their magic based society with the rest of the world (which is ignorant of magic, or anything supernatural), while not getting killed/captured by the government agency in charge of keeping the supernatural in the bag, as it were, (the BRCK, based off the SCP Foundation) or suffering a mutiny from within Atlantis. All the while we're aware of a reality ending event that is oncoming which, according to all research we've performed, is apparently unavoidable, that we don't even know how we're supposed to even begin dealing with.

It's all rather enjoyable. I think the scale change was in reaction to the fact that the game was supposed to last about a year, but now it's been two, and we're all a bit more powerful than the GM thought we'd be. I find myself lost sometimes over how we're supposed to deal with some of the crazier stuff going on (the Red Sea is draining, you say? To nowhere, you say? O.o) but it's good craic all the same.

Kidlet:
Have the little one for the whole week this week! Woo! His childminder in Dublin is getting her tonsils out, so his mom needed someone to watch him for the week. And seeing as he was due down this weekend anyhow, I was more than happy to hold on to him. I can never thank my parents enough for making things such as this possible, juggling time off from our respective jobs.

The weather is forecast to be good, so I'm thinking playing at the beach again. He loves that. Buy some balloons, some bubble blowers, he gets a kick out of those too. We'll see.

Quick question to other parents of FaWtL, what did/do ye do to encourage your little one's talking? I want to do more to get him chatting. It frustrates him that he can't communicate and that's something I want to help him with.

I was at the point where it didn't actually matter anymore if he did or not. Fortunately, his mommy was able to come home before he woke.

Still in desperate need of sleep... but less.

So I spent about three hours last night RPing my NWN character going through surgery after an erinyes shattered her shoulder with a greensteel arrow. Some of the most intense interaction I've ever had, and it pretty much involved me sitting in a chair mumbling incoherently from time to time while three other characters were constantly rolling to pick pieces out of the ground beef that used to be my arm before the shrapnel spread too far.

And then today we need to sit down and analyze the contract she gave me before shooting me, see if we can pick out any useful information that might help us in the upcoming quest tonight, before she wipes a town off the map with her undead army.

Things like this are why I keep coming back to this game.
