Almost Midnight, and I'm bored out of my mind. I *should* be doing some DPR calculations, but . . . . Meh.

Thanks Syrus. I'll have to see what the bank can do. At the very least, I can fing the source of the transaction and have the bank flag it under suspicion of wire fraud. But I really don't feel right with asking my friends for money. I don't want to be a burden.

Your character sounds really interesting, Lynora. I've been into stories with time travel and temporal paradox in a Mage game (I played an Ecstatic mage) and I have a lot of fun. I always loved time travel games.

In RoW my GM made a homebrew part that also involved some sort of messing with the time flow (it fitted my Time Witch theme) and it was a great part.
When done in the right way, messing with Time can make very interesting stories.

We got tossed to our current location through a magical storm, so this is definitely an interesting twist. And now we know why we didn't find any other survivors from the shipwreck. They're all in the past! :)

Time travel can get confusing pretty quick, but when done well, it's really fun too. A time witch sounds like a cool character concept. That sounds really fun.

I love the magical storm concept.

Something pretty similar happened to my mage when she ended in an Island that I still don't know if it is in the past, is an umbral reflection of an island that existed on a distant past ot what. She was running away from people who wanted her dead and tried to get away by getting to the Umbra (astral plane more or less). Then they blasted her with magic weapons that opened a rift in reality while she tried to teleport away. The next thing I knew is that my character was in a strange island alone. She later found some of her party members there too. It was a bizarre thing.
My GM wanted to take my character out of action for a time so they could think she was dead and she stopped being hunted. The plot with my character being hunted because she was a renegade of the Technocracy was cool but it ended being a bit old and tired so he wanted to device a plot where they thought my character dead.

About my Witch, she was frozen for a whole year to realize that the Time current had been altered by a poorly thought Wish spell and a lot of things had gone wrong. The goal from the beginning was to get to the place the Wish was going to be formulated and change it.
The wish was: «I wish nothing of this had happened». So when the wish was done, everything got back to a year before, with nobody remembering anything and doomed to repeat the story over and over again, trapped in an eternal time loop that nobody remembered.

I posted on Reddit about my campaign setting, and I think I should post here because I haven't posted in forever:

Quote:

The region around Guillermo Bay is one of the three richest, most developed urban conurbations on the west coast of Thyressa. Located in the province of Vendalia, the massive bay provides secure moorings for shipping across several cities, making it an ideal transportation hub.

The largest port is that of Perides, a city located on the East Bay that, at 4.7 million, is the largest city in the region. This is largely an industrial city, with shipping, railroads, fishing, and canning all being major activities.

Valetta is the second largest port, located on southern tip the West Bay, and is known for being more of an artistic and government center, though it also has major canning, fishing, and shipping industries. It is the capital of Vendalia, and boasts 1.6 million souls.

Los Colinas is the third largest port, located on the northern tip of the West Bay across from Valetta. Known primarily as a university and research town, boasting several well known institutions of magical, humanitarian, and technological learning, it boasts about 300,000 inhabitants. Los Colinas is also the highest income of the three cities, being a popular place for rich, successful people to settle while commuting to Perides or Valetta, especially with the recent completion of the Tri-City Bridges, which carry trains between the three cities.

All three of these cities share a reputation for having a large proportion of... colorful inhabitants, as well as for political activism. The region as a whole is typically cool in winter and hot in summer, though western Valetta does get heavy fog and cooler summers than the other two cities (Los Colinas has hills between it and the western shore that block this fog, whereas Valetta occupies both the eastern and western shores). The climate is moderately arid, with the bulk of rain coming in winter. It does not ever snow.

Also important is the Valle de sombra, a valley in the south of the bay that provides such an ideal climate for tree fruits that it produces more of them than any other agricultural region in Vendalia. The valley lacks a coast suitable for a port, as much wetland would need dredging, so produce is processed and canned locally and then moved by rail. The city of Josephtown, numbering some 500,000 souls, is located within the valley, has most of the processing and canning industry for this produce, as well as a major railroad industry. It's location at the southern tip of the bay makes it an ideal rail hub for linking the region to southern Valetta, as well as for transporting the massive amounts of produce throughout the country or to the ports in Valetta and Perides.

Also, a little bit on the name Josephtown:

Quote:
Josephtown is a nod towards San Jose, which is my hometown. San isn't really used in Vendalian placenames anymore because of a falling out with the Gods and by extention the saints, so a town named San Jose would need renaming, and if the faux-British are in control, why not just anglicize it?

I have always called syphilis just syphilis. But that might be true.

About «producto de España» yay for finding the «ñ» in your keyboard. When I was into the UK I gave up and stopped using it when writting in Spanish. I was young and naive and unable to find the «ñ» on an international keyboard.

I can say something Spaniards don't do: good beer. These days it's the Artisan Beer Fair in Lugo and some of the brands are actually kinda good. Estrella Galicia is also a pretty good commercial brand brewed in Galicia. But most Spanish beers just suck. Amstel? Yucks. Mahou? Not beer at all. I don't recommend you Spanish beer.

And music. Most Spanish music sucks too.
Most of my friends just listen music in Spanish because they cannot understand what songs in another language say. But I don't have a problem with English and sometimes I'd listen to lyrics that are so awful that I'd rather not know what they say.

«She asks me for more, even knowing I can hurt her. It's not my fault if I don't behave.» <----Lyrics of a really awful Spanish song.

We sell Estrella Galicia where I work.

I drank a bottle of tempranillo tonight. Damned if Spanish wine isn't good at providing a high value at a good price.

Why not listen to Latin American music? There's some pretty good stuff.

And I didn't mean that you capitalized anything wrong. I just was remarking that is cool that you use the «ñ» because it is a headache to find it in international keyboards.

And yes, Spanish wines are pretty good and affordable. The best part is that we have a great variety. I'm not a big fan of wine but I like to have it for cooking. A decent bottle doesn't cost more than 3 euros.

I like beer more than wine anyway, but if I cannot get Estrella Galicia (that has a very affordable price) I'd rather go for a germanic brand. 1907, the toasted version of Estrella Galicia is pretty good.

By the way, where are you from? I didn't expect Estrella Galicia to be a thing out of Spain (as it's almost impossible to get one if you go to Madrid. Those fools from the capital only drink Mahou, which is a bad attempt of beer).

She's in the San Francisco bay area. :-)

We have Amstel here, it's not very good I've heard (I personally can't stand beer so I wouldn't know).


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Then try it. It isn't beer, just a pathetic attempt. But still better than Mahou.
And even if people in Galicia are obsessed with Estrella Galicia I have to admit that it is just semidecent compared to some foreign beers (I'm not impartial, as I like abbey bears, toasted and black better). Spanish beers are soft and bland.

Make sure there isn't a sudden profusion of cattle and check to see if your neighbors are suddenly wearing John Deere hats and suddenly invested in Friday night fish fries and if the Packers defeated the Vikings in sportsball. It sounds like you might've been transported through some sort of wormhole or time anomaly to the Midwest.

Uh oh... If I get to the country I see cows everywhere... My neighbor/dad has a John Deere hat... Pretty unsure of what kind of sport play the Vikings and the Packers, but I think you might be right.

Actually it's also the regular weather here in the North.

I'm pretty sure Kjeldorn, Sissyl and Kajenhase would have something to say about me calling The North to the place where I live.

*A head pokes out of a pile of covers in the corner*

Yea, strong beers with a toasted taste are also something, I prefer, over the lighter beers, although those can be done right.
I would warn you against those Abbey Bears though, just because they have taken the vows, don't mean they can't maul you good (in the name of the lord of cause) ^^...

No. I appreciate the well-wishes, but this is something the bank has to take care of. Since this was done electronically, I suspect Hackers. I'm going to have my bank put an immediate halt to all non point-of-sale, non ATM, and non check transactions. And, since this was done recently, I'll ask the bank to put a trace on the aberrant transaction. If they can follow it, I'll authorize them to hand the information off to the proper authorities.

May your bank be as good as my credit union was.

We had that happen a couple of years ago. A waitress at a restaurant was skimming bank cards as the took people's checks. One of those, "intelligent people get jobs. Stupid people become criminals" moments because she scanned and sold a whole ton of cards all at once, so the police just asked, "Where were all of these cards used in common? At what time were they used? Oh. This restaurant. This shift..."
They caught her less than 2 weeks after she stole my card info.

But I have to give my credit union props. I called them, explained that no, I had not purchased $500 in sporting equipment and $300 in lingerie, and they had the money back in my account in under 48 hours. I was impressed.

Of course, we needed new cards and so forth, but I was really impressed at how they immediately trusted me and made sure there was money in my account, then investigated...

So, life around here is certifiably insane.

The house across the street? The owner got an offer for $1.4 million, but that fell through, so she put it on the market for $829,000 to incite a bidding war among potential buyers. She's likely to get over $1.2 million. And the next block over is another little tool-shed-sized house selling for over $1 million, and when I went to the farmers' market this morning there was already a line waiting to get in to view it, an hour ahead of time.

So two houses, neither of which breaks 1200 square feet, one on a 3750-square-foot lot and the other on a 2500-square-foot lot, both selling for over $1 million...
...and we have 30-40 people lined up outside just for the "honor" of bidding on them to buy them.

What the heck, people? Just... what the heck?!!??
