The game is supposed to play something like Buffy or Supernatural, so that's a good sign.

I just realized... This is all just part of a plot to replace us all with cap-bots.

He's feeling out gran's job so he knows how to program that cap bot, and once he has given us all a "day off" each will be replaced in turn...

That's just crazy...

Have I mentioned how much I love my Sunday group?

  • Our dual-wielding sharkman ranger keeps "accidentally" killing all the people we want to question. So my life oracle spent more than half her stash of diamond dust to get him a +1 merciful cutlass "for when the captain asks you not to kill things." And nobody threw a fit and yelled at me for wasting precious, precious resources on roleplaying.
    (Whingy Wizard is amazing in his ability to insist that he only plays for the "roleplaying" aspect of the game, yet the moment you use a "party" resource for such purposes he hits the ceiling and lets you have it. In the Crimson Throne game, the cleric tried to use 1000 gp of diamond dust to pay for raising the ranger's animal companion, and it was a good 20-minute argument because 'the rules let him just get another one. Why are we paying to raise this one?'
    "YOU aren't paying. *I* am."
    "But *I* might need to be raised later, so *you* shouldn't be "wasting" diamond dust!"
    In fairness, he also objected to going a day out of the party's way. But given that they knew they weren't working against a time limit, both arguments were rather forced.)
  • We were in a section of the book (one of many) where there are both diplomatic and combative ways to resolve every encounter. And we succeeded on the diplomatic checks every. Single. Time. And the GM has informed us that the AP is written in "NobodysHome-friendly" style: If you take the diplomatic route, you get significant later rewards. If you just kill everybody, you just get some crappy loot and that's it.

  • So yesterday was a very good game...

    Well, I have to admit, I am both happy and frustrated that U.S. citizens are still somewhat interested in science.

    For those not paying attention, hotel rooms along the path of totality for the August 21 eclipse are up to $1000/night(!!).
    We decided we were going to do the whole thing "in style" and rented a giant RV.

    Today was half an hour of phone calls trying to find anywhere to park it within 200 miles of the path of totality. It was NOT easy.

    Finally we found an 'eclipse festival' where a couple are renting out space on their 2000-acre ranch to let people dump their vehicles.

    Happy that the eclipse is so popular. Unhappy that that means so many people will be around...
    ...and on the bright side, parking the RV less than 15 miles from the center of the path so we don't have to drive at all if we don't want to is pretty epic. And at 1/5 the price of a hotel room.

    Not bad at all!

    The eclipse is within a day of my birthday.

    I'm genuinely scared society might fall if I put any effort whatsoever in seeing it.

    It turns out after hardly any research my out of state brother lives along the path.

    My manager's appalled that I'm paying the extortion-level price on the RV parking, but once I got 100+ miles outside of the area and was still getting, "Yeah, I don't know of a place within 50 miles that isn't booked solid already," I figured I had two choices:

    (1) Spend a ton of money on an RV, bring a whole bunch of hopeful kids along, and risk not getting there because I have to drive 200 odd miles the morning of the eclipse.
    (2) Pay an extra $180 and guarantee that even if I sleep in, the RV's engine explodes, and my wallet is stolen by wombats, my kids will still see the eclipse.

    Yeah, I'll pay the $180, thanks.

    EDIT: And in an odd bit of insight into NobodysHome's psychology, I really don't mind when venues up their rates for "special events"... especially places like this poor rancher, who you KNOW is going to be spending the next month on heavy equipment in the hot summer sun making RV parking spaces to get the extra cash. I don't envy him one whit.
    But the moment a parasite scalper gets involved, I won't even pay list price. "Wait a minute. You bought out ALL the spaces just so you could resell them to other people at a profit? Nah, I'm not doing that. I'd rather miss the show."
    Just an interesting bit of my own psychology...

    EDIT 2: OK. I admit it. I turned my "Nice Guy" meter up to 11 while making the calls because I really wanted a space. So I just got a call back from one of the other places, and he'd managed to rearrange things so he could fit me "Out back o' the pasture."
    I really loved the consideration, AND the offer to be in the back of a pasture, so I told him that xxx had already rented me space. His response, "Aw, well that was nice of her! I'm glad you got a space. Have a fun time at the eclipse!"
    I'm really beginning to like Eastern Oregon. Of course, I haven't been there yet.

    After hearing today's news stories, Impus Major decided he is going to start the Rock party.

    Every year he will run randomly-selected rocks against all the carefully-selected candidates.

    He feels he has a strong chance.

    My boss does this irritating thing where he'll sit us both down in front of a screen to do a long bit of digital paperwork. He will then proceed to have me type everything out -- rephrasing, correcting, changing his mind repeatedly, recorrecting, forgetting what he told me to write weeks ago, explaining to me why his (new) way is better than what I already wrote, and getting occasionally distracted. But not volunteering to cut out the middle man and do it himself. He knows much more about the process than I do.

    I'm not sure whether he has ADD, some work-motivation to saddle me with the keyboard, or maybe he wants me to do the typing b/c I'm fast and accurate.

    I've been wondering how many of these people are actually interested in science, and how many of them are thinking "Hey, any excuse to party!" and just want to get drunk, high, and/or laid. I honestly don't see what the big deal is about the eclipse personally, but hey, if you're into it, go for it. I'm just glad we aren't in the "best viewing area" (although, it's only maybe 100 miles or so to reach it. maybe 150), because I don't want to have to deal with people b#*!$ing about our prices going up.

    I have to admit, I'm slightly confused. Are you saying that you want to use my idea? If so, have at it. If you're suggesting something else, I don't quite understand what it is.


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    Upon closer inspection, it appears I am actually about 160 miles to the nearest edge of the "totality zone", and 200 from the center. Still don't care. Still not planning to look up. Of course, I may be asleep when it happens, but even if I wasn't, still wouldn't look.

    Reasons can be surprising things.

    I spent seven years as the Exec Ass to the COO of a large nursing home company. Every year when we did our annual budget, I would spend day after day sitting in her chair in front of her PC while she stood behind me and told me what numbers were supposed to go where and how they were all supposed to tie in.
    She gave various explanations, i.e. "I want you to learn the budgeting process," or "You need to understand this so you can work directly with the department heads to help them with their operating and staffing budgets", etc.
    Turned out what was really going on is that SHE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO USE FORMULAS IN EXCEL. She basically thought it was just a big sheet of digital graph paper, and she was "teaching me the budgeting process" so I could insert formulas and tie everything together so that the CEO and the CFO wouldn't find out she didn't know how to do any of it.
    I got some really nice presents as a reward for my discretion.
