Greetings all.

This seems to be a very tight knit thread, does everyone just know everyone?

Sometimes you wanna go...

And the best part, you can be naked and no one will ever know!

I am sitting in my office, so if I was naked someone would surely know.

Ah, Daylight Savings Time!

Stayed up 'til 10 last night against my will because everyone else kept saying, "It's not even 10 yet! Just sleep in tomorrow morning!"

Got up at 4:15 am this morning because I couldn't sleep any longer.

Grr....

I was very glad to not have to worry about time changes yesterday. Got to the game store with plenty of time, had a decent run, back home by about 4pm.

We've finally clawed our way above freezing (currently 34 degrees, with a promised high of 41).

Gorramit, I cannot escape DST!

My office computer is now an hour behind, because it was commissioned during DST in Portland. Will I be able to reset it to proper time? Probably not, as us lowly field employees have no admin rights. ):<

The first picture with the band is Joakim.

The second and third pictures in the yard are me.

And no; I didn't lose weight. The mohawk and goatee are very thinning on the face, and even the "large" top is way too tight, so it's sucking me in like a heavy metal girdle.

So yesterday it happened again, and I'm still at a complete and total loss to explain it.

Sorceress: I Lightning Bolt this group of creatures (gesturing to the map)
Captain (incredulously): That's the only group we haven't hit yet.
Sorceress: I know. I want to make sure all of them are damaged.

What? WHY?!?!?! As I tiraded before, are there any RPGs or board games in history where damaging a group of healthy enemies is as effective as dropping a group of already-injured enemies?

I think a couple of people had some arcane examples before, but the predilection of so many of my gamers to target the uninjured continues to baffle me.

EDIT: I think this time her decision cost us around 60 hit points in damage and one poisoned character from the group of injured creatures she could have wiped out with said Lightning Bolt.

Any system that does wound penalties. White wolf caused a LOT of problems in pitched melee when a new group of uninjured foes showed up in the end of the combat round.

This game of ours does not do wound penalties and I think it would result in riots if it did. So yes, you can take a mace to the face several times and you're good so long as you have hit points. Cue whingey wizard whining.

I think that's the issue, then. I've never played a system with significant-enough wound penalties that it wasn't better to finish off the wounded. And I've played a lot of games. But not all of 'em.

White wolf penatlies go from laughable to JESUS CHRIST JUST STOP TOYING WITH ME AND END IT!

It is one of the few systems where a group of weakened enemies is preferable to one whole undamaged foe.

It does a good job of relaying the utter chaos of combat with superhuman beings for whom everything but a solid slug shotgun blast to the chest is inconsequential.

I've not advanced enough Blue Rose games to field enough foes at a time for it to really be a concern, but that system (and the True20 it was based on) may well be the answer to all of this.

Last night on our way home I made the mistake of taking Solano Avenue. There were only two cars ahead of me. Unfortunately, the one directly in front of me proceeded to drive at 8 mph for the ENTIRE LENGTH OF OUR TRIP (about 1.1 miles), slowing and swerving frequently as if looking for parking, but then continuing.

NobodysWife's response to me: "Well, kudos to you for not leaning on your horn for that entire trip! I couldn't have done it."

Similar happened to me on the drive home Saturday after the wedding. A paranoid-looking driver ahead of us was consistently 10-15 miles below the speed limit at all times. Oh and this is a narrow, winding two-lane country road with sparse, intermittent passing zones, during which there was always oncoming traffic so even if I'd wanted to risk passing I couldn't.

Was stuck behind them for about 45 minutes before finally getting to a turn at which they went straight.

Today was fun. I ended up staying an hour late at school because I had an emergency meeting with my daughter's teachers over a behavior incident today, and *then* I had to go out to run all the damned school shopping errands, and then come back and take care of the rabbit, and by then I'd worked yet another ten-hour day and I was so angry that I forced my poor children to listen to me rage-sing along to the Hamilton soundtrack in the car.

They fell asleep.
And then I woke them up and made them tacos.
And since mad can only last so long, after I put my son to bed, I sat up with my daughter going through my random box of old photos because she wanted a picture of Grandpa to take to class for the Dia de los Muertos celebration she argued her teacher into having tomorrow. (Why, I have no idea. We're Polish/Scottish/Danish. No Mexican anywhere. But she's obsessed.) She chose one of my dad doing one of his favorite Stupid Human Tricks, i.e. feeding bits of frozen hot dog to seagulls out of his hands. He would hold the hot dog up in the air and the seagull would swoop down and grab it.
I longed for the day he would lose an actual finger, the smug bastard.

I had an entire OOC adventure for this post that my phone lost.

No, Freehold is right.

A) you've visibly lost weight over the last four months.
B) Yes, the facial hair and the Mohawk are slimming. They're also kinda hot.
C) A + B + switching from chefwear to camo, + the overall more pleasant demeanor (yes, your personality has changed), and you've gone from Flanders to daaaang. Which I have not mentioned in front of Goth Bard because that's not the sort of thing one is supposed to say out loud about a friend's spouse.

Edit: Which I am also not saying in front of Whingey Wizzard, because he's already jealous.

Oh man, I love the determinism v. free will debate! Though determinism makes a lot of people very uncomfortable -- including some of my closest friends & family -- I love to argue for it from both a monotheistic and a secular position.

:)

...Oh, and is it a copout to say that the Joker would be both overjoyed and utterly bereaved if Batman were to die? Because people are conflicted like that, and if any character is capable of being fundamentally conflicted it's the Joker.

Turn order and overkill. If you know that another ally will act soon and will have a significant chance of dropping the enemy you are attacking at the moment, you might want to blast fresh ones, while the more hurting enemy is left for later. If you can dish such damage that most of it would highly exceed the already wounded target's hit points, you might want to attack a fresh one to avoid your full effort from being wasted. Again, if there is significant chance that someone else will be able to finish either of those before they act.

But yes, in general it's usually better to finish an enemy than attack a fresh one. Usually.

1) I don't debate it in front of family, 'cause family. But yeah: I have no real issue, either way, and it makes it kind of bemusing that some are terrified of a lack of free will or its presence.
