Speaking of locational stuff. We here in Michigan have neat terms for the people living either north or south of the bridge. Those in the north are called Uppers (pronounced you-pers) and those of us living south of the bridge are called Trolls (because trolls are what live under the bridge. :)

I wonder if that's a localization of yuppie?

If I develop super powers, I will NOT publish my origin story.

Sadly I'm not doing any gaming myself,

Hey! Heeeeeeyyyyyyy~! TS! Good to see you here!

I strongly recommend trying out some solo games!

They can be pretty great, though, of course, the pacing and structure is vastly different from multi-party games.

Glad you seem to be doing well!

HELLO 'LION!

I may give solo play a shot if I can find the time...though to be honest, I have as much fun writing games as I do playing them. :)

Going well! I'm engaged, which is exciting. The big day is in December.

Work is good. Gaming, not so much apart from PbPs. Nothing like our awesome one-shot.

Congrats, that's wonderful! Just please please don't get married in a non-climate-controlled barn in Rochester. ;)

I mean kind of, she wasn't one when we got married, but she has fun with it. :-)

Nice! How long did it take her to join you?

My gf is more into digital and board games than ttrpgs, but she's played a couple of sessions of PF so I can already talk to her about D&D tropes and quirks. :) Also, I have free access to Dragon Age through her laptop. Which is a totally new game for me!

Well, you see, we dated, broke up, were just friends, dated again, lived together, got married, moved west, had a kid, then moved back to the Midwest, all during my 17 year hiatus from gaming (I dislike 1st and 2nd edition, very much).

I've been back for about 8 years now (just in time to catch the end of 3.5) with my wife (and now kids) joining me for the last 5 years.

Edit: we've known each other for 24 years, married for almost 15, also, I'm almost 40.

Yup, we're colder than hell. :-)

But only by about 7 degrees, the wind gusts tho, are not helping anyone.

My wife isn't a gamer, but she'll play if I need a player to round a group out

No spellcasters.
No roleplaying.
No complicated builds or making her own character - build it for her.

Killing stuff and puzzles only or leave her out of it.

She always lives longer than anyone...And I do a better job building simple powerful characters for her than myself...She dominated every game she's been in.

She still prefers not to play.

My wife and daughter boyh insist on building characters, my wife is especially fond of spellcasters, but neither one will pick feats, yet they're incredibly critical of whatever I choose. :-D

They're a lot of fun roleplaying tho, my wife especially is great at in character quips.


My boyfriend used to play... He doesn't anymore. He is pretty much just into MMOs these days.

Also, the first thing they ask after every (yes every) battle is "can we eat it?"

Have you ever had to try to talk your group out of eating an Ogre. I have, it didn't work. :-)

I had a halfling who tried to cook everything the group killed. Apparently beholders just dissolve when fried, although it was in 4e, so that may be why.

We moved there when I was three, my dad got a job, we rented a nice house, and three weeks later, Hurricane David hit, goodbye job, goodbye house, and goodbye Florida.

I've never been back.

Edit: I actually don't remember it, but it's one of my mom's favorite stories to tell about our mad cap moving about the south. (We moved to Texas after that, I almost died twice there.

Speaking of Florida...

NobodysHome's Story Time:

I was doing an on-site training course for a well-known media research company (oh, that's not too obvious, is it?) at one of their facilities in Tampa, FL. Every single student was a middle-aged white male engineer. The moment I mentioned I was from the San Francisco area, the gay jokes started. All. Day. Long. All I'll say is that I run a kids' game with 11-14-year-olds and they're better-behaved.

So, as was my custom, at the end of the day, I asked my students where I should have dinner. They all said, "Go to Kelly's Has Everything. It's awesome!"

In the days before GPS, I actually pulled out a AAA map (think of a Google Maps printout designed by M.C. Escher such that once unfolded it can never return to its original form) and found the place.

I walked in... and it was a gay bar.

I sighed. I would NOT let this dissuade me. I walked up to the chaps-clad server and said, "Table for one, please."

He sat me at a teensy table among a horde of blue-haired little old ladies, none of whom seemed the least bit perturbed by the spectacle of flamboyant gay men on parade at the bar. (Being from San Francisco, you rapidly become accustomed to the fact that there are "normal" gay men who look and behave like everyone else, and "flaunt it" gay men who try to out-do the Hollywood stereotypes of themselves. These gents were in the latter category.)

The menu looked quite excellent, and the little old biddy beside me said, "Oh, you're in for a treat! These guys get all their produce and meat fresh every day, and make everything from scratch!"

So, being on an expense account, I ordered the filet mignon. And enjoyed the best steak I have ever had in my lifetime. I've eaten at Alexander's Steakhouse, the Ritz Carlton (both San Francisco and Sydney), and LB's Steak House in Santa Clara. Several of those meals were over $1000 (for four. Not just me going nuts solo).
This meal was under $50. For the Best. Steak. Ever.

The next day, the engineers all grinned broadly at me. "Enjoy the show?"
"Er... whatever."
"Wasn't that the best food EVER?!?! My wife and I go there ALL THE TIME!"

It really WAS a good restaurant.

I had reason to go back to Tampa just over a year later, dined at Kelly's again, and once again the food was just mind-blowing.

Kelly's Has Everything. Enjoy the meal. Enjoy the show.

Just keep in mind that I'm old. This was back in 2001-2002. Who knows whether it's still around...

Apparently Google does... I know those red stools! And there are even reviews.

Doesn't sound much like a gay bar any more, and there are no steaks on the menu at all (BOO!) but that's definitely the place.

That reminds me - one of my Dad's favourite things to sing when I was small was:

"Frosty the Snowman
Had a doughnut on his head"

I don't know why. To the best of my knowledge, Frosty the Snowman does not have a doughnut on his head, so you were wrong about that, Papa Longears.

How does steam work again?

Like others have said, go to the Steam website, download Steam, install it on your computer, create a profile, add friends/join Steam FaWtL, and then message me so I can give you a starter pack of games. :D

I'm taking you for a Hatoful Boyfriend kind of guy. xD

That's...that's a lot of games.

How do you join groups on Steam? I only ever installed it to get Civ V to run when I bought it at the store years ago.

PC Gamers:
Btw, that reminds me, I should explain that games list, in case newer folk aren't familiar with it. Through various, perfectly legitimate, means, I have amassed a small collection of spare Steam keys. Rather than let this collection sit and collect dust, with many fine titles going unplayed, I made up the list, so that others may peruse it and see if there would be any games they might interested in playing. I then shared the list on FaWtL, so that anyone can check it out, message me, and get (a) nice game(s) to play.

I made some new additions just there, a couple of relatively big titles, so people should feel free to check it out and get in touch. Several FaWtLers have availed of the list and I'm sure could attest it's on the up-and-up, should that concern anyone.

I find malls dull at the best of times, and overstimulating at the worst.

Can't say I have much positive to say about 2e myself, aside from the settings. Never really played anything earlier, though I am tempted to buy the OD&D pdf just to see for myself what the game was at the very start. (Well, as much as any point in a thing's history can be said to be its 'very start.')
