Newest pet peeves.

College students who ride around the motorized carts they have for the disabled at the grocery store.

But even worse is the piece of s+$* managers who let them do it.

I can see why they would use the carts. Running through the hallways to avoid their classes must be exhausting. Not to forget mentioning them being so weak from their drinking binges. And the back-breaking work of dodging responsibilities.

Cap, you mean like using the carts irresponsibly and doing silly things like racing them and being in the way? Or do you just mean because of their age? Because if it's the former, then, yeah, that's awful and the manager should step in. But if it's the latter I would like to offer another perspective.

I have a whole series of health problems, the most debilitating of which is my hypermobile joints. When your joints bend the wrong ways, you get all kinds of fun and interesting injuries. By the time I was in college, I was on crutches more often than not because my knees kept popping out of place and wrenching the muscles in my legs. And I'm one of those babyfaced kind of folks who looked like I was in junior high when I was in college. So embarrassing when you're nineteen and trying to be independent. Anyhow, when I went to the grocery store I often had to use one of those carts. Not because I was lazy. Because I was exactly the person those carts were designed for. But you couldn't tell just by looking at me. I dreaded shopping when I was injured because so many people would glare at me and even make nasty comments, and there was nothing I could do to prove to them that I really did need this. Heck, I'm forty now, and I still get glared at when I have to use those carts. The difference is that now I'm old enough to know that it's their problem, not mine. See, when I go around that same store while using a cane, it's amazing how invisible I become. People are happy to pass judgment when they think you're faking being disabled, but they don't want to see you if there's any evidence you actually are. I am far from the only person who has left a store in tears because some insensitive jerk accused them of faking their illness. It's not okay. Please don't be this person.

Tiny T-Rex is sick, which sucks on many levels, but more specifically, I was planning on playing pathfinder this weekend. :-(

The bummer is, his gag reflex goes off for like no reason at all. So trying to get him to take medicine is more about how much vomit you can handle cleaning up as it is about him taking the medicine.

I hope he gets better soon, Cap. My best wishes!

Bookface drama -- and a big difference in religion and politics -- just cost me two wedding guests.

I can't help remembering a lengthy interview with Daryl Davis I heard, in which he explains how he -- a black man -- managed to reform several KKK 'grand wizards' simply by maintaining long-term friendships with them. Surely if Mr. Davis can do that, I can be extra-super-polite with a couple of old high school friends...

But honestly, I'm not sure that I even care about losing these two guests.

oh come now.

The carts are fun. You'd do the same if you were their age. I know I did.

Besides not all handicaps are visible, and not all handicapped folks go around with sad faces mourning their life. Some can be irresponsible as any kid. Which is fine, in moderation.

Actually, I didn't. My grandma lost her leg due to a surgery complication when I was five.

I shouldn't say it's a new pet peeve, just one I forgot about. :-)

They ran in, fought over who got to ride them and then putzed around the store twiddling at each other on their phones. All in front of the manager.

So I am supposed to be camping with my family in the Santa Cruz mountains this weekend at our church's annual family group-camp.
And I technically am, except instead I'm at a launderette in a small town half an hour away, because my son managed to completely soak his brand new sleeping bag the first night he slept in it. Poor little guy thought he'd ruined it and was devastated.
Meanwhile, I'm secretly thrilled because I am not a happy joiny eating breakfast with humans kind of person.
I'm a make rocket fuel coffee and leave me the hell alone until I feel like being social and by the way all breakfast food is awful kind of person.
Except for bagels and lox.
And bacon.
So the kid did me a favor, really.
And now I get to be hero mom.

Except for the random guy sitting three seats over won't stop farting, and there's nowhere else to sit.

Now I want to camp. Alas, it's still too early for that.

I haven't gone camping since a lot of time ago. And I always camped in a common camping place full of tourists. I've always wanted to camp in a really wild place. Europe is such a crowded place.

Today I've started watching the new episodes of Doctor Who. I still cannot say what I'm thinking of them but I really like Capaldi's acting.

Family holidays when I was a tot mainly consisted of staying in a campsite at a folk festival where my Dad was playing and eating tinned meatballs, yum yum. I didn't mind.

The General now wants to have chicken roosting pegs on her quarterstaff. So I ask "so you have to shoo your chickens off before you fight" " oh no, they cause the distraction!"

... I'm not sure that's covered in the rules...

She's got a sketch of her shaman swinging her chicken staff though.

The idea I guess is they'll fly off right before impact.

Or, in addition to 1d6 Bludgeoning damage, you get +2d10 chicken damage as well. Squawk/Squawk/Peck.

I might finish one of the remaining familiar ideas, but at the moment I have a certain fey almost ready. Just add a description and polish a few things.

I can easily see the Milovila as a sort of "Party-girl" Tinkerbell. Give them levels in Bard, and these familiars can bolster the party with buffs.

So, apparently (as in, this is a joke so probably not) there used to be a game show in England where-in people would act out a famous phrase or saying, and the contestants would have to guess what it was. Sort of like charades. One man was particularly dominant and won day after day. Once he had accumulated around 100,000 pounds in winnings, the producers came to him with a challenge. One last puzzle. If he got it right, he would walk away with 250,000 pounds. If he got it wrong, he would lose all of his accumulated winnings. He accepted the challenge. They prepared a big event for this last puzzle, and when they finally pulled back the curtain, the man (and the audience, of course) was presented with a line of naked women, some facing him and others facing away. The man looked confused for a moment, then a big smile crept across his face as he announced that the answer was "The William Tell Overture." He was right! Loud music played, confetti fell from overhead, the audience went crazy!! When things had finally quieted down a little, the host asked him how he could possibly have gotten "The William Tell Overture" from looking at a line of naked women? The man said "Well, at first I didn't know what to think, but then I saw the pattern and it came to me right away." "Pattern? What pattern?" asked the host. The man pointed at the women, still standing in their line, and said:

Spoiler:
"Rump, titty, rump, titty, rump rump rump."

One of inspirations

Though the bat wings are explicitly FHDM's fault... He wanted succubus. That much milovila inherited from succubi.

BTW:

milo, mila, mily means "nice" and is a root of word love in Polish.
vila is another rendering of "veela"

I'm not very good with jokes and most humor doesn't translate well.

---
I'm right now talking to my newest player, who is a 18-year-old girl. She has decided to be a GM for her other gaming group and has told me her plans about it.

I don't want to discourage her as she has to learn but I think her first game is not going to end well, specially because all her relvant NPCs seem to suffer from an advanced Mary Sue syndrome.

They asked her to GM a Vampire game, and her players have created social and politic characters. She has developed a plot where the main story is a street fight between two vampiric guerrillas. As the PCs are not very physically strong, she created an NPC to go with them who she calls «my PC on the game» and who is secretly the leader of one of the guerrillas (the ones who are the good guys while the others are the bad ones) and who she has already introduced by having him save one of the PCs lifes.

There is also another character who is going to try to seduce one of the PCs who is secretly a werewolf as well as a powerful businessman and a casanova who has some some sort of evil dominant woman behind him (I can guess she is there to cause conflict with the PC he is going to seduce).

I don't know much more about what more she has planned, and I am trying to help her to flesh out a good story while not trying to force her to give all her ideas up as she has already started the campaign and she has to learn by herself. I've warned her not to give too much power or relevance to NPCs but I don't want to be too pushy with her as she is beginning and she has to do her own mistakes.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

She has to learn, and experience is the best teacher. I made a lot of mistakes early on when I first GMed. Tell her that it's okay to make mistakes while she finds a style that suits her.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

She knows, me and Dalindra are acting as mentors to her and have provided her with some previous advice on how to run a campaign, but she has to learn on her own. I gave her some ideas to tone down the Mary Sue and the GMNPC syndrome a bit, but I don't think she will because she has to see it on her own.
She has good qualities as a player and a lot of imagination so I think she can be a great GM after she realizes that the players have to be the stars of the show.
