Lisa Simpson: Are you sure you did everything you could, maybe you could've been a little "nicer" to Principal Skinner, if you get my drift.

Marge Simpson: Lisa!... I'm very nice to Principal Skinner.

I think it went well, though it's always hard to tell, either way, we're very proud of her. :-)

*SIGH*. I don't know where to vent, because if I vent anywhere else on the boards I will be inundated with advice as to how to "fix" things.

In short, I ran Crimson Throne for the larger group on Saturday. They are 5th level. Because of their utter ineffectiveness in combat so far, I upped them to 20-point builds, and have them at slightly-higher-than wealth by level.

In spite of all of these efforts, on Saturday the fighter and paladin combined to take 5 rounds to kill ONE zombie.

Not some "super uber" zombie. Just... a zombie. Admittedly, it had max HP, so it was AC 12, HP 19, DR 5/slashing, but... 5 rounds. With both the fighter and the paladin combining their efforts to down ONE zombie. Of the nearly two dozen in the building.

I weep for my campaign...

I love Crimson Throne. Wonderful plot.

This is really the key.

Not to start an argument or rules war or anything, but I have to strongly disagree with the idea that D&D/PF is a defensive game... if anything it's the exact opposite, the game rewards direct offense and "enemies can't threaten you if they're dead/disabled" far more than playing defensively and waiting/outlasting the opponent.

It is quite simply that winning is easy if you prevent your opponent from ever getting a turn.

always wondered why people never use their strongest attack first.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It is simple combat etiquette, Sans! Why, using my special attack first would simply leave everyone blue and depressed! We can't have that, can we!

you're just sour 'cause your special attack got stolen by that dog.

I just got my hands on the void engineers handbook.

I love it. I haven't been this happy reading mage in many, many years. The plot twist is awesome, and I like how the engineers were treated by the writers. Very well done. Hope to get my hands on a copy of the syndicate book.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Void engineer? I am unfamiliar with this title.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Who were once the Celestial Masters and the (Void) Exploratores of an earlier age when magic(k?)was stronger have in our age become the void engineers, the great explorers of the Technocratic Union who have numerous space stations and qui la machinae far out in deep space that the unEnlightened cannot see. They have discovered something horrible out there and they are sinking all of their fantastic Wonders into fighting it, sometimes- slowly becoming often- going so far as working with the reviled mages of the Traditions.

Yeah we're getting a tree this weekend as well:-)

We go to this little cliche mom and pop store 5 blocks away (Knoches Market) then the kids "help" me carry it home, and if it's snowing, not even Norman Rockwell can top that picture of light hearted familial togetherness, even the dog comes with. :-D

When I was living in Nevada, we had a cliche mom and pop store, the place had like 2 checkout lanes. The best feature was the meat dept, this guy would custom cut any piece of meat you could want.

The coolness of our neighborhood is the number one reason we still live in our tiny house, which the rest of our family doesn't understand.

"Why don't you get a bigger house in the burbs" is like the number two thing we hear at the holidays, right behind the not on Facebook guilt trips.


How tiny is this house?

Two bedrooms, 700 square feet I think, has a nice yard, we're on a major bus route and bike path that goes right downtown, walking distance to food, work, school, booze (not that we're big drinkers, it's nice to have the option)and a shopping district with a farmer's market in the spring, summer and fall.

Sounds fine to me.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

Sounds awesome to me. A little smaller than my ideal (900 sq ft is my idea of perfect, but only because we like to have 3 bedrooms. I snore. Like a lot. And I get real damn cranky about being woken up for it multiple times a night. It's better for everyone if I have my own sleeping space.) but with a location like that, I can totally understand wanting to stay. Plus smaller spaces take less upkeep. This was a big factor in getting rid of our big house in the burbs. I hated not being able to walk places easily, I hated having to spend hours and hours trying to keeps over 2000 sq ft clean, both of us hated yardwork with the fire of a thousand suns, and the payments were too big. Our current place is still a little big, but it's across the street from the kidlet's school and next door to a grocery store, and an easy walk to almost anywhere in town, so we're staying for at least the next year and a half. Sometimes you just gotta find what works for you and screw what everyone else thinks. If being a real adult requires misery (and/or facebook) I'll pass thanks. :P

I have a weird relationship with yard work.

It seems so relaxing, but is so very, VERY loud. Few people enjoy pushing around something that sounds like lynora snoring that likewise doesn't like to turn very much. If there was a sliding, whisper quiet lawn mower it would probably change attitudes.

Get a scythe! Then you can pretend to be Nerull at the same time!

That's not good for cutting grass unfortunately.

Surely scythes are designed for cutting grass?

Those must be some microscopic bedrooms.

Our house is listed on Zillow as 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, 1388 square feet. I think that's a ludicrous overestimate, considering the footprint of the house is [(22'x17') + (25'x28')] = 1074 sq. feet, rounding up to the next foot on every measurement and including all the walls, closets, etc.

And while we have a very nice large living room, dining room, and kitchen (we believe in social areas), the bedrooms are teensy and the bathroom is pathetic.

I'm guessing you'd need a "real" 1300 square feet to have 3 bedrooms. And maybe that would earn you a decent bathroom.

We don't have a basement, if that helps.

They do have those olde time non electric push mowers, but unless you sharpen the blades after every mowing they get pretty rough to use.

Using it to cut regular grass requires real skill, agility, and strength/endurance.

I don't doubt it. Still, at least they're quiet (and look cool) :)

I know at least one person who has one in lieu of a lawnmower, so I'll have to ask him how it's working out...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

About 500 square feet here. What would I do with more anyway (ok, since friends moved in I could use some more to have second smaller kitchen, second bathroom, and second entrance)?

Scythe is a really cool looking implement, no argument there.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

So to be fair, the 1074 is the main house we live in, and I thought square footage was supposed to reflect "living space".

We have a leaky, uninsulated 1-car garage whose walls have rotted through for another 200 sq. ft. or so, and a 300 sq. ft. studio, 90 sq. ft. of which is an enclosed storage shed.

So:

  • Total area that is climate-controlled, INCLUDING walls, closets, etc: Something a tad under 1284 square feet
  • Total area that supposedly doesn't get rained on: 1574 square feet
  • And that's just too small for 4 people and 4 generations of other people's stuff.

    As I said, the Zillow thing is a mystery to me, but not a particular concern, since I'm never going to sell.

    Just like CY and Lenora, neighborhood is everything to me. Being able to walk a block and a half to a wonderful market run by an extended Korean family, then a farmer's market there on Sunday? Priceless..
