I just sent my RA an email outlining the situation and asking him to contact me so we can work things out. If he doesn't send me a response by Tuesday morning, at the very least an "I'm totally swamped and will deal with this when I can", I'm going over his head to the staff in the front office, whether the staff like it or not. If I have to go to housing staff and things aren't looking better by then, disability support services is getting roped in unless they obviously can't help. The tension and resentment in this house is so bad I dreaded coming home from work tonight. This situation is not emotionally sustainable at all.

In happier thoughts, I'm debating how to cook tomorrow's dinner. It's ramen, but it's not instant ramen. Oh, no. It's the stuff that comes in a package like spaghetti, and there are no flavored salt packets to be found here. The package says to boil it in chicken stock, not water, and not to drain it. They also say to pour in some soy sauce. I have two choices for that, though. I have a regular soy sauce, and I have a Japanese soy sauce with lemon flavor. Which one to use? I have some sweet onion I need to use, so I was going to throw that in there. How should I cook the onion? Aside from chicken stock, soy sauce, and onion, what else should I throw in there? Aside from the chicken stock, I don't want any meat in this dish, and I don't want any meat substitutes like tofu in it, either.

Alright, I'll do a recap after work. I'll also try and get the tablet running, do the dishes (finally) and write a bit. We're already near the half-way mark of this month, and I'm done procrastinating.

That's what I always said about the "Who would you be in a D&D / Pathfinder world" discussions. Umm - maybe a court bard or the temple cleric who heals the PCs after an adventure. All those who say they would be an adventurer have no imagination about what it must feel like to be struck by an ogre's greataxe. I don't care if you have potions; if that happened to you once you would never want to leave your house again.

You could sauté the onion in butter or oil. Just pat it dry with paper towel before you add it to your broth or it will get oily.

The lemon soy sauce would probably be tasty.

Other additions could be sliced, sautéed mushrooms. Or you could dice celery and sauté it with the onions. And parsley (dried or fresh) should brighten the flavor - a little goes a long way.

It's actually a very wise revelation - that you wouldn't really want to be an adventurer because of how uncomfortable it is.

The main difference for me with such worlds (as, barring my family I would accept going there and being an adventurer) and Shepherd, is that in places like D&D (at least 3.X) and PF you have the (virtually) guaranteed options of coming back to life if you know your stuff.

For example, if it were me, as I am, who got dropped in Golarion, it would suck - my constitution's about 6, I'd guess, at present, and I'm something like a 2nd or 3rd level Commoner - but I'd make it work, because I know how to game "the system" and I know what it looks like from the outside - undergoing a tad of retraining, some persistent work toward a goal, and voila, I'd hit immortality in no time.

If I were reincarnated into Golarion, like a samsarran (or 4E Deva, though I'd not accept the deal if it's 4E anyway), I'd be entirely screwed and would reject the option. Unless I could keep and memorize my books and forums knowledge.

... of course, as they keep retconning reality around me, I might suddenly get stuck in a place I really don't like without abilities that I've previously relied upon... but then again I'd be a spellcaster, so I'd probably be good!

it's-called-a-zing

But then I'd purposefully fix all the world's ills that I could (the majority of them really wouldn't be that big of a deal) and retire to Nirvana, Heaven, or Elysium to enjoy my immortality in style and comfort.

Doomkitten Happy Fun Gaming Time Part 1!:

For a few weeks, I've been participating in a 5e campaign based off of the NWN main campaign. It's been pretty fun.

I'm playing a paladin named Alandra Brightblade. Her reason for joining the quest to destroy the Wailing Death-a plague that has been sweeping through the city of Neverwinter-is because her squire, a tiefling named Damaia, has been stricken with the first stage of the disease. The other player-let's call him Ginger-has been playing a barbarian named Scott, and he has no real personality. He's kind of a rookie.

The adventure started off when the four Waterdhavian creatures necessary to cure the plague escaped in the chaos. Now Scott and Alandra have been dispatched to track them down.

We cleared the first district fairly easily. The city jailer suddenly and uncharacteristically released all of his prisoners. My meta-knowledge and in-game knowledge (it has become an ongoing joke that my paladin went to college, since I roll absurdly high on Arcana rolls despite having average intelligence and not even being trained in the skill) quickly deduced it was the intellect devourer, and we fought our way through a bunch of prisoners, though a noble's house to find a secret entrance, and finally through the prison.

It turned out that this intellect devourer was special. After we killed some devils, lots and lots of prisoners, and talked our way past the massive half-orc barbarian guard, we finally came to the pits. After getting into an argument with the devourer about grammatical semantics, I pissed it off by being right and it turned into basically Mother Brain from Metroid. It was a tough fight, but we made it through.

That took one session.


Doomkitten Happy Fun Gaming Time Part 2!:

The next time we convened, we got to the city core and took a day to relax. I spent it with Damaia by her bed-she was still in the early stages of the disease, so it wasn't dangerous-and after we had our day off, we ventured into the Blacklake district.

We picked up a hill dwarf cleric of Moradin named Brother Turgrin. He was finishing off a mob of plague-crazed commoners in the slums of the noble district (kind of an oxymoron, I know). My paladin gave him a lecture about subduing them, not killing them, before inviting him into our party. We proceeded to wander about the district, picking up rumors that a mage had found a cure. Curious, we went to his tower. The unflappable guard (I rolled 23 total on my persuasion, and he didn't budge) wouldn't let us pass, so dejected we wandered the rest of the district.

Coming across a rather distressed elf druid outside the zoo gates, the druid, whose name I have forgot, let us know that the zoo was keeping animals that shouldn't been in captivity. Namely owlbears, griffons, pegasi, and the like. We agreed to investigate, but we continued on our way.

The cleric sensed a strong conjuration magic emanating from beneath a house, so we investigated. It turned out that the house was home to a rather paranoid woman named Milly. I was charming enough that we managed to get it, and over a cup of tea I discussed the matter with Milly. Reluctantly, she let us investigate.

After finding a false wall in the wine cellar, we knocked it down (with her permission, of course) and cautiously entered the portal. We found ourself in what was obviously a wizard's tower. Which was being guarded by two mages and eight automatons. Apologizing for the intrusion, we set down our weapons (a greatsword in my case, this will become relevant later) and agreed to be escorted out.

When we got back to Milly's, the Brother Turgrin's player and I began to form plans on how to get there without disturbing the obviously high-level beasties that were in there. We began to factor in the zoo as well, but the DM let us know that it was a sidequest. After about half an hour of fruitless brainstorming by us and hint-dropping by the DM, he finally let us know we were overthinking it. Ginger, who had been repeatedly saying that we could just use the portal to pop in and chew bubblegum, had been right. The second mage was an illusion.

Facepalming, we charged through the portal and proceeded to demolish a bunch of automatons. We were still taking heavy fire from the mage until I remembered the first rule of combat: Geek The Mage First. What happened next set the tone of what my paladin would be doing for the rest of the session.

I had the feat Great Weapon Mastery, since I was a variant human. However, I was a sorcerer until the mother brain battle, and because I was kind of useless, the DM let me change into the paladin. This was my first time making use of the feat.

First, I grand slammed (-5 to hit, +10 to damage) with my greatsword against the automaton. Hit, kill. Then, since the other use of that feat let me make another attack as a bonus action if I dropped somebody to 0, I charged the mage, using divine smite, which let me burn a spell slot for 2d8 radiant damage to my attack along with grand slam.

Hit for massive damage.

Then the mage dropped a fireball on me point blank, incinerating himself in the process. I made the save and was still standing, but only just barely.

At that point, the battle was all but done. The cleric rushed up and healed me, we headed into the next room. It was a garden with 4 elemental shrines, a fountain, a few flowerbeds, and 4 rooms. Taking a short rest, I healed back up to full. Making two arcana checks (starting the scholarship paladin joke), I deduced that the fountain would give us 4 bonus hit points to our total, and that the room was a representation of the structure of the inner planes. We then went into the air chamber that was adjacent to the main room (we had just cleared the fire chamber).

There was an air elemental. Which I killed. With two hits.

We took a short rest, then ventured into the earth chamber. We found a half-dragon warrior who asked to face one of us in single combat. Naturally, I volunteered, glowing my weapon up and giving it another +2 to hit (from Sacred Weapon).was an epic fight, both of us hitting and missing, each time we hit was for decent damage. We parried, dodged, hit each other... it was glorious. Finally, he yielded-which was good, since I was near 0-and lay down his weapon, kneeling. I offered him a hand up. Smiling, he faded into the ether Obi-Wan style, thanking me for one last good fight.

I crashed for eight hours in the central room after that.

Finally, we ventured into the water room. It was pitch black, and then a nothic offered to show us a way if we gave it something we didn't know. Thinking fast, I took out my javelin and made it glow with sacred energy. The nothic thankfully accepted the offer, and then the blackness receded. There was a handleless door, which had to be pulled. Again thinking fast, I poured some water from my waterskin onto the door (since it was the water room) and lo and behold, it acted as acid and ate a handle for us! We took a short rest then entered.

A staircase led down into an underground grotto, which was criss-crossed with slippery paths. I was yanked into the water and nearly drowned before emerging. We eventually found cave fishers and merrows in the water. The barbarian was the only one who could fight them since the cleric's and I's chainmail would drag us to the bottom. He was victorious, and then we ended the session.

Are you searching New or Used? I got my niece a used copy of Yellow and Crystal for about $40 apiece, including shipping. I can see the GBA games being slightly more expensive than the GBC ones, but that's kinda ridiculously more.

Thankfully I didn't have to buy FireRed, Scint had a copy she never plays and offered to send it to me for free.

Combined with Mario Land 2 and Kirby, my niece has the basics for growing up on the building blocks of gaming, and she's not even 4 yet. =)

GUESS WHO IS NOT GETTING MY BUSINESS TODAY.

I feel your pain. I have also chosen which companies I deal with based on how hard it is to:

(1) Find a phone number, and
(2) Speak with a human being.

"Live chat" is amazing in their inability to understand the problem at all, while e-mail might as well be covering your eyes and pretending the problem doesn't exist; the few times I've received a response at all, it has usually been, "Due to security reasons, we can't discuss this via e-mail. Please call."

One of these days I want to bring a "regular" Verizon customer over, have both of us call support simultaneously, and time the results. I've heard nightmare stories about Verizon, and I suspect the number I get for the corporate account is NOT the number they give to the general public. If it is, I have to give props to Verizon. If it isn't, it's pretty scummy to know your support is so bad you have to give out a "special" number to premier customers.

The one company I *will* give props to is Chase. They seem to do a darned good job of having competent people ready to assist you on a moment's notice.

Sonic.net is similarly helpful, but they're small enough I don't know that it counts...

EDIT: Ditto Paizo, before Sara Marie sends Robot Chris out to kneecap me...
