It's a one sided display. I think people are looking for the "hoverboards" themselves, even though we'd have to be some grade A idiots to put those things on the floor. People even try to ride the skateboards that have the plastic wheel lock on them.

I hate it when stores do that. It was a big issue back in the Nintendo days when they swore they had games, but they aren't located on the floor and you had to rely upon the good grace of the team to match what was in the catalog to what was in the store room.

This might possibly be construed as mildly political, so

Private Contractors:

This whole, "We don't have employees, we hire private contractors" thing has gotten WAAAAAAY out of hand.

Long story short, Shiro's player ordered food from Diner Dash. The delivery guy backed into his brand-spanking-new Alfa Romeo. Delivery guy gave him an e-mail address to contact. Diner Dash's response? "All of our drivers are private contractors, hence we are not liable for anything they do. You have to take up any insurance issues with the driver."

So... you manage a system that pays people to deliver food to houses. Your entire business model is based on these deliverypeople driving around and delivering food. But it's not your responsibility to vet them, or to deal with the situation if they hit someone or something?

Huh?

And corporate is cracking down on ID requirements for liquor sales again. We can, as usual, blame somebody in Southern California for getting busted. It's a national chain, and yet it's always a store in SoCal. Always. I don't know what the hell is going on down there.

It must be nice having a state so big you can blame the other half when s**# goes wrong.

We just have Illinois. Which is admittedly a terrible place. Or Iowa, which is a worse place, and Minnesoty, which has less lakes then we do, and is probably a terrible place.

More tirading about aboleths in APs (spoilered, of course)

Minor AP spoilers:

Yesterday we encountered the aboleth in Skull & Shackles, and it was yet another ho-hum encounter.

The GM did a magnificent job BEFORE we found it. We saw fleeting glimpses of a kraken in the area. We heard the sounds of the dead captain's footsteps, heard the creaking as the ship started to break apart in the depths -- all part of the aboleth's illusions, and the thing that makes them fun to play as a GM.

Trouble is, the AP writers never give the aboleths any actual ammunition with which to harm the party. We had a couple of Magic Circles Against Evil going (as one of the most powerful defensive spells in the game, even the kids' group has one up all of the time) so the aboleth's Dominates were useless. Instead, it led us around by the nose using its illusions, but there were no traps. No lurking Dominated monsters. Just a creepy, really fun maze with the aboleth at the end.

And the final fight with it was just, "Yeah, sure, you've got tons of illusions. Those can't hurt us. What else can you do?"

One good Will save from the ranger and he was full-rounding the aboleth, so it died in 2 rounds. Yeah, it mucused him. Yeah, it slimed him. But we were in the middle of the ocean. Being "trapped" underwater wasn't a particular hardship for him.

I had the same issue with the aboleth in Serpent's Skull, though it's a lot more fun to play as a "hidden chess master", which is how aboleth are supposed to be run. Trouble is, most APs put them somewhere easily-accessible and obvious.

AP writers delight in putting casters in small rooms with no exits, and has them wait there for the party to arrive.

This never goes well for the casters.

Good on our GM for making our lead-up to the aboleth a fantastically-creepy, buff-burning, paranoid walk through a nightmare.
Bad on the AP for having the poor aboleth sitting in a room just waiting for a pounding once we got to the bottom of the ship.

EDIT: I mean, honestly, I'd just like to see a little more work to deal with an aboleth:
- Step 1: The difficulty of figuring out what exactly it is you're up against
- Step 2: Getting True Seeing for at least one of your melee characters, preferably a fast or ranged one
- Step 3: Dropping the Protected from Evil, True Seeing melee character on the poor aboleth's (head? body? Slimy bits?)

The APs make them so easily-accessible they tend to miss out on step 2.
I can't congratulate our GM enough for having us totally creeped out without our ever realizing we were facing an aboleth until we were in the room with it. It was nicely done, and we weren't prepared, and it should have run away. But they're always written to stay and fight for at least a round or two, and melee combat isn't their forte.

They run away when reduced to 20 HP or less. Dual-wielding ranger with mega-buffs typically does 40-50 HP per round. Good luck with that.

Judging by how many giant inflatable human sized hamster balls we sell, I will agree.

Giant human sized hamster balls, the transportation of the future.

Most likely jet powered, and steered via Braintooth (think a blue tooth that you put on your temple)

I can, um, guarantee at least a few of them are NOT used for transportation purposes...

Also, they need to be more durable.
