They're about as large as medium-sized dogs. Or a smallish large breed dog.

Use the stats for a riding dog.

It does depend on the rat, because some of those beasts can get enormous.

Has anyone ever had Popcornopolis popcorn? For Yule, my family got me a 6-flavor pack of it, and four of those flavors have turned me into a popcorn snob. I will never again be able to enjoy a $20 tin of holiday popcorn, they were that good. White cheddar, yellow cheddar, caramel, and cinnamon, mmm! So a couple weekends ago I ran across a new flavor of the same brand at Costco, and picked it up on impulse.

And now I regret doing so, because like the fifth and sixth flavor, it is essentially just super-frosting-sweet, and nothing else. And I have a healthy [rotting cavity-filled] sweet-tooth, but this is too much.

It's just disappointing, is what it is.

Yeah, it's funny. I'll buy the 6-packs at Costco on occasion, and NobodysWife hoards the Zebra, Shiro gets the white cheddar, we put the kettle out for the kids or adults, but the other flavors? Meh. It's one of those stupid things where it's cheaper to buy the 6-pack at Costco and throw away one bag than it is to buy the bags of the stuff you like anywhere else.

Nothing like U.S. consumerism at its finest!

So, if you were wondering, when you work in a casino (technically a paramutel, but we have table games, poker, and betting on horses/dogs/jai alai, so close enough) you start to hear the same phrases over and over again.

You know those s%#!ty cliche lines that people spit out at you when you work retail? The kinds that make you want to murder the customer? For example: "It didn't ring up. I guess that means it's free!" No, it isn't witty. It wasn't witty when the first person came up with it decades ago, and you hashing out this same pathetic joke isn't funny with each repetition. Or "Are we having fun yet?" Really? What is the right answer for that? Condescending backhanded bullcrap.

The following are casino equivalents of those stupid overplayed cliches:

Player is playing two hands. "Oh man, if only I could take this X and switch hands with my Y in the other hand. Then I'd have a [insert larger hand here]" or "Oh man, if only I played one more hand the dealer wouldn't get that hand.

IF. It's always IF. Look douche, IF cows s@@* chocolate we'd have a one-stop source for chocolate milk, but they don't. If doesn't mean s%@$.

Player has a 3 and a pair of any other card, say Jacks. "Looks like I have 3 Jacks". No. You don't. And I hear THIS one more than anyone in retail ever heard the crappy free scan line.

"Oh, that royal is coming" Statistically speaking, no, it's not. You keep throwing out money waiting for it to happen, though. Heaven forbid you win after getting a full house or straight or other good hand; no, you hang in there with your absolute absurdness that you will have the most statistically unlikely hand possible. Dumbass. Thanks for paying my check by not knowing how to walk away ahead.

Ugh...you know, we get nice players sometimes, but there's some that I just sit and stare at them like "will you f~@#ing lose and go home already?" because they won't leave if they win. One guy, a regular of ours, has been up over $2000 from an initial couple hundred and just played and played until we got it all back.

Sure glad as a DP I don't get paid based on tips like the dealers. I couldn't pretend to give a s&## about these people. They all have the same conversations...I'm pretty sure every dedicated gambler is sharing one common personality: loud, boistrous, entitled, sexist (rubbing hands of female dealers without their permission, calling them "baby", etc), overly attached to their money and blaming dealers when they lose as if they somehow had an effect on the pure randomness that occurs when you throw an already shuffled deck into an automatic shuffler. I mean, geeze, if these people could manipulate hands that well, do you think they'd be working for $5 an hour plus tips? F%#$ that. They'd be hustling in home games or something.

And this doesn't even begin to describe the a#*%@%!s who win but b+@** if they don't win by enough.

First: no one you guys know is in trouble. My wife and kids are all fine. This refers to a thing that's happening elsewhere.

Second: sorry for the wall. I spoil'd it so you don't have to get inundated. (Also religious things, but mostly horrendously large walls of text.)

Third: I love you all. You're awesome and valuable and I'm glad you're my friends.

Fourth: Sorry about the whine. It helps to share, I suppose. :)

I don't know which is worse, the heavy-handed religious in a no-religious zone, or the sappy:

There are times in life when prayers are not answered as you'd hope. And, when you've been fighting for so long, working so hard, struggling toward one thing that just... isn't to be... is it wrong to continue? If you know you've lost the battle, is it more virtuous to keep fighting, or more virtuous to accept, and find a way to accept and enjoy the new paradigm? The five stages of grief aren't exactly a thing like they're portrayed, but Denial certainly is a real thing... and is refusing to accept what seems to be the inevitable Denial, or something else? Merely "Sunk Cost Fallacy" kicking into overdrive, refusing to allow you to accept what is real, or is it the manifestation of the virtue of Hope?

The news we've received is real, but the decision isn't really mine to make. Though I am there as a form of support and prayer, I am not and cannot personally take part in that battle. A forced non-participant, an observer, when all I want to do is take up shield and sword - or any other weapon available - and strike with all my (currently impotent) fury. And is that, itself, the nonsense of psychological torture, the wallowing of, "If only..." and clinging to a desperate fantasy? I don't know. And I can't really say if there's a real distinction between Hope and Denial - the expectant and fervent desire for future outcomes and the refusal to accept what seem inevitable do have a significantly similar ring to them.

But I know this: Hope is, in the end, worthwhile. It is not always easy - and it may generate more pain than comfort and generate more struggle than calm - but it is worthwhile. There may be times when the fight should be ceased, and that may be the correct choice for others in the same situation, but I cannot and will not accept that it is the wrong choice in this one. Is there any Hope in the struggle? Maybe. It depends on what you mean. There is no "hope" to be seen in the sense that none of those who know their work project any sign of change or "hope" for an outcome different from what is predicted. But there is Hope in this: that no matter what the outcome, the struggle itself is worthwhile. It may not result in what we seek, but - who knows? - it may: perhaps it will generate a "miracle" so improbable that odds would never accept in a way that surrender might not. But that's not where Hope lies. Instead, Hope lies in the idea that doing something - anything - is better than passive acceptance. Even in failure, struggle against that which is destructive and harmful to many is, itself, worthwhile.

It may be that such Hope proves “false” – that is that the situation becomes Hopeless and the struggle is turned to surrender and peace and comfort are chosen. And here is a mystery: these are not wrong, either. While Hope may always be worthwhile, it is not, itself, the Ultimate thing that is worthwhile. Perhaps it is easier to accept and follow and find comfort in inevitability… to place our faith in something so seemingly certain that it can’t really be any other way. But that is not Faith, nor is it where we place ours. Instead, our comfort is found in the Faith that has been passed down through our families, friends, and strangers. Through people in lands near and far. Through hearts and minds and souls. Our Faith is found in what we choose to place it in, and we have, as one, chosen to place our Faith in The One. We don’t understand the “why” of any of this – easily the best of us is now afflicted with a disease that seems intent on first claiming dignity, limbs, and now, life itself. How can this be anything good? Anything worthwhile? Anything worthy of glory or honor or respect or reverence? In what sort of nonsense world could any of this have meaning?

It is said by many, “He will not give you more than you can bear.” Really? Really?! Because right now, it sure seems like we’ve got a heavier load than we can handle! I’m not that strong of a person. I cry at stupid and inappropriate moments, fail to weep in appropriate ones, suffer idiotic bouts of pride at the wrong moments, fail to restrain my gluttony all-the-dag-gum-time, and generally have a whole host of other character flaws I won’t get into here (suffice it to say, if it’s on the list, I’ve probably got it, somewhere, likely more than once, just in case the first pass wasn’t enough). Ah, but then… we come back to Faith. The truth is that He will not, “let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.” Right. So I don’t have to sin, I just do: it’s all on me. Great.

And so, then, we arrive at the crux: if our Faith never promises that we will find a way through, or that we will never arrive, or never find what we’re looking for… why bother? Because it promises something else. It promises that He loves us. And, whether we want it or not, He guides us. But the road isn’t always pleasant, and doesn’t always lead where we want.

Jeremiah ended up in exile, reviled by the people he preached to, and was often thrown in the mud and beaten as a traitor on the way there. Paul changed his name and entire life and threw them into following the gospel, only to die a martyr’s death in prison (which, by the end, he seems more than ready for). David was exiled as a traitor by the king he was almost suicidally loyal to, Hosea experienced unending marital strife, Peter was crucified – but, at his request, it was upside-down, to honor his Lord. If you are looking for a Faith of comfort, it is here, but it is not the comfort of desired outcomes or wish-fulfillment. If we delight in the Lord, we are promised the desires of our hearts – but in that instance, our hearts’ desires are the Lord, and that often represents what seems an unpleasant outcome from this existence. “Blessed are those who mourn” is says – it promises nothing about avoiding mourning, and, in fact, promises just the opposite. In fact, it promises that there will be many times and many places to mourn, that loss and death are inevitable, here, and that the end comes for all of this physical existence. Jesus tells others to mourn because the coming loss of Jerusalem. The book of Lamentations is written all about mourning for what has been lost. But it does say that those who mourn are blessed… but why? How? It’s not possible, by our estimation. Blessed? That seems ridiculous. In some translations, it even dares to suggest that “blessed” means “happy.” I mean, really. “Happy?” “Happy?” That seems a bridge too far, doesn’t it? How can Faith suggest that those who mourn are blessed? Because of this: “Blessed are they who mourn…” with the explanation, “… for they shall be comforted.”

So… some vague, promise of future comfort, though? Is that… enough? Yes. Because Faith is held – Faith for that future and eternal Better, and the ability to be with those who we love, after but a brief (if extremely painful) separation. And this is the promise of Faith: that it is the proof of things Hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith may have proof, and there is nothing wrong with this. But Faith may have none… and there is nothing wrong with this, either. If proof is shown, Faith still may well prevail, or it may not… but it always, always has value, as it holds you and guides you, and continues to allow you walk, to stand, and to go forth. When Hope is not enough, Faith steps in and guards and guides, and allows you to continue. Faith does not prevent you from pain, only keeping your strength, even during the pain.

Life is good. Life is hard. But life is good. And I place my Faith that this all will be worthwhile. Because it already is.

“But now faith, hope, and love abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

And this is, then, is the key. Love.

What is love? That… is a hard question to answer.

Is it an emotion? Yes… but no. Is it a connection? Yes… but no.

Is it real? Yes.

Love is a commitment, after a fashion – a choice that is made. But it is not just one choice, but many, made again and again, every day, along with many, many other decisions. And the greatest of these is love.

Love brings emotions. It creates a connection. It builds family and friendships. It constructs bridges and pathways. It engages passion and allows caring and compassion. It sparks arguments and fear and pain and hardship. It generate courage in fear and compassion in fury.

It makes disagreements matter, because you care and have a connection to that person that you disagree with. If they are wrong, you need to make sure they know – not because you are correct (that is incidental), but because you care about them and you need to make sure that their best interests are looked after. It’s a very, very tricky and difficult thing to understand, and very easy to misinterpret. Are you acting in love or arrogance when you correct another’s error? It’s hard – maybe even impossible to say. Disappointments and desires, too. Are they for your vision, or are they real? And, if you know what’s best… how can it be that others disagree?

Love is not merely empathy. It is not merely sympathy. It builds and brings both of those, though, and might bring and build them so deep and so powerfully that it's hard to separate someone else's pain from your own - that it's impossible, in fact, that you suffer as much, or even more (to some degree), than whoever it is that you watch suffering in the first place. And others - such as me - can only watch the pain unfold in the lives of those hurting and those hurt more by the hurting and offer the cold comfort of our presence and support.

Love is tricky, and painful, and extremely, extremely difficult in deceptive, subtle, and nuanced ways. And, when you disagree, when you are disappointed, and when your desires – all thought to be made in love, and maybe genuinely are made in love – are thwarted, it brings such a deep seated pain and sorrow that it’s hard to even comprehend.

In response to this, I am forced to ask, “Why?” There are many possible variants of that question, and many valid ways to expound upon it, but for me, it’s “Why is this allowed to happen?” That is: if we are loved and cared for and if we are worthwhile and valued, then why go through the pain and difficulty and heartache? And, frankly, I have no answer.

But I have this.

It was worth it. And what's more: it is worth it right now. There may be no answer in this life for the pain, the trauma, and the hurt. There may be no healing those wounds, no fading of those scars. But love is worth it. Love is always worth it.

I don’t mean society’s notions of “romance,” though it’s quite awesome. I don’t just mean those happy emotions and high points of good memories, though those are invaluable, and are certainly part of it. I mean everything: the high points, the low points, the hardships, and the pleasant times. The bittersweet memories and the ones that make you sob when you’re sitting alone in front of a computer screen, knowing you look ridiculous but not really caring – and they make you sob because they’re just so good and unlikely to ever come again. I mean the things you remember and the things you don’t: the times that you recall and the points you’ve forgotten. It’s the times that you make those decisions, wrong or right, and that you act as best as you can in a selfless, kind way that is for the betterment of another. It is that connection through which emotion and intent and desire and disappointment all flow with joys and pleasures and pain and regret. All are worth it. All are worthwhile.

And now we will continue to fight, because we choose to, because that is the decision made by the one who is in the position to make it, because that person maintains Hope, and Faith, and Love and has the heart of a true warrior turned to the highest good it can: for the life and health and happiness of others, they will fight until they win or that old foe does... but either way, it matters not, because either way they have won, because either way they have loved and are loved and are living every moment they can within and throughout and surrounded by and exuding Faith and Hope and, of course, Love.

The greatest of these is Love.

Remember this: no matter who you are, you have someone who loves you. And your life is valuable. Every last moment of it. You are valuable. Every last part of you.

You are Loved.

And I look forward to talking with you more, Lord be willing. Laters.

I have come to the conclusion that people found on the paizo forums are not the kind of people I should be running games for - and as such I will probably slowly pull out of any PBP activities I am on/have signed up on the boards. And with that, my activity in FATWL will decrease since I can only talk about things that I like, and since there's nothing holding me here...per se.

And the sad thing is I still believe that I make a better GM then most of those people out there.

Its a rather sad day for me.

Fair enough I only run games for friends myself. I'm always super cautious about new people.

The real thing to keep in mind is everyone is after a different experience and has different goals you can really see that when it comes to gaming. You learn a lot about someone by gaming with them and you may not always like what you learn.

Yeah, I know all too well what you mean. Post a simple question such as, "If I 5' step off a cliff, does my opponent get an attack of opportunity as I fall?" and end up in a hideous, 300-post grarfest of hostility where everyone accuses everyone else of playing "wrong". Reading through most of the boards, I learned that I wouldn't enjoy playing with a good 80-90% of the people who post on Paizo. I just prefer a far different, laid-back, "the GM and players are cooperating to tell a story, and the rules shall be interpreted as to make the most sense to everyone at the table" instead of the all-too-common, "the GM and the players are opponents in a tactical war game, and as such all rules should always be interpreted in the players' favor" I see so often here.

I know I'd never run a PbP here.

Heck, after running 8 live sessions in 16 days for my "regular" groups I just told today's group, "I'm not running today. I'm tired."

GM'ing takes a lot more out of you than people who have never done it realize. And having players constantly argue for one more teeny little thing that's one more "minor" stretch of the rules is just exhausting, frustrating, and depressing.

I get not wanting to say personal things on the internet, but when you post a long personal post with all of the personal stuff removed it's super hard to tell what you're saying.

Do you have cancer?

Are you getting a divorce?

Are you thinking about suicide?

Are you dying?

Is someone very close to you dying?

Do you have gambling problems?

Did you forget to pay Fat Tony the pretzel money?

These are all the scenarios currently running through my head.

I hope you're well and none of these are correct and you're just going through the winter blahs. :-)

And if they are correct, I'll help you fight Fat Tony and his goons.

We're all dying everyday...each day that passes is one step we take closer to our graves. Yeah. It's morbid and very unlike me.

Random Question:
Have any of you ever had a piecaken that was worth the trouble of actually lifting your fork to your mouth?
If so, what was the pie/cake combination?

My son's birthday is Pi Day and he really wants a piecaken birthday cake.

After last year's Justice-League-on-a-Train-Cake debacle that had me ugly-crying on the floor of my kitchen, I'm glad he wants something easy this year, but I don't want it to taste awful.

I found a recipe for a peanut butter pie baked inside a brown sugar chocolate cake, but I'm afraid it will be too sweet for even a five year old.

Other ideas include: some type of berry pie inside chocolate cake, peach pie inside sour cream butter cake, pecan pie inside hummingbird cake, etc.

Thoughts?

And I think I am too different from anyone on the boards. I did at first think sure I can't game in RL because of schedules/times, then realized that even on the boards I am an odd duck.

It's harsh getting your illusions shattered. Ah well. Sux to be me.

Yeah, I know all too well what you mean. Post a simple question such as, "If I 5' step off a cliff, does my opponent get an attack of opportunity as I fall?" and end up in a hideous, 300-post grarfest of hostility where everyone accuses everyone else of playing "wrong". Reading through most of the boards, I learned that I wouldn't enjoy playing with a good 80-90% of the people who post on Paizo. I just prefer a far different, laid-back, "the GM and players are cooperating to tell a story, and the rules shall be interpreted as to make the most sense to everyone at the table" instead of the all-too-common, "the GM and the players are opponents in a tactical war game, and as such all rules should always be interpreted in the players' favor" I see so often here.

I know I'd never run a PbP here.

Heck, after running 8 live sessions in 16 days for my "regular" groups I just told today's group, "I'm not running today. I'm tired."

GM'ing takes a lot more out of you than people who have never done it realize. And having players constantly argue for one more teeny little thing that's one more "minor" stretch of the rules is just exhausting, frustrating, and depressing.

And with that, my activity in FATWL will decrease since I can only talk about things that I like, and since there's nothing holding me here...per se.

Aw! But we like you! Your cheerful optimism, your foodiness, and your cuddliness are delightful! Don't let the evil denizens of the other threads chase you off!

Do what I do! Hide everything except FaWtL and the campaigns you're following!

In the end

"I tried so hard, and got so far, in the end it doesn't even matter."

I don't post much on most of the site for two reasons. I barely know what I'm doing and I don't like the arguments about the game.

It's just a game. If I don't like a rule or interpretation, it can be house ruled. Or I can learn to live with it. It's not as serious as many people seem to think.

My perspective may be quirky. I come to the hobby from Bloodlines and V:tM. I'm used to playing in Earth's darker, eviller twin.

@ Tac: Sounds like you're bearing witness to something real rough, and I'm sorry to hear it. I'm an irreligious Humanist, but I've always liked the serenity prayer. Work for the change you can affect, and try to accept what you can't.

@ Mort: Sorry to hear your PBP has gotten so frustrating for you. I agree with Captain, take a break and do something for you. We'll miss you if you stop posting here.

Pie...cake...n?

Never heard of such a fusion. And why is there an N at the end?!

Anyhow, sorry, can't help. Berry pie seems like it might go well with vanilla cake, but that's a stab in the dark.

I sure will be glad when I don't have to wear twenty pounds of padding to walk a mile and a half to the shopping district.

Random Question:

Have any of you ever had a piecaken that was worth the trouble of actually lifting your fork to your mouth?
If so, what was the pie/cake combination?

My son's birthday is Pi Day and he really wants a piecaken birthday cake.

After last year's Justice-League-on-a-Train-Cake debacle that had me ugly-crying on the floor of my kitchen, I'm glad he wants something easy this year, but I don't want it to taste awful.

I found a recipe for a peanut butter pie baked inside a brown sugar chocolate cake, but I'm afraid it will be too sweet for even a five year old.

Other ideas include: some type of berry pie inside chocolate cake, peach pie inside sour cream butter cake, pecan pie inside hummingbird cake, etc.

Thoughts?

Every time I make a pie or a cake it looks like a piecaken.

That's been run over by the Minnesota Vikings' offensive line.
Multiple times.

Want me to help?

It has an "n" on the end because of turducken.

I was making some cleaning among photos on my HD and got some nostalgic. Folks I haven't seen in years (or never, as I got some photos of FAWTLies that were shared across the years), some events long ago...

I am easily overwhelmed and fed up with social gatherings but there were moments when I miss them...

Doesn't "turducken" have an "n" at the end because it's a portmanteau of "turkey" and "duck" and "chicken"?

Guess the site is back up.

I've never heard of a piecaken before, and am not sure that I would want one (I like cake, but I'm not a big fan of pie. I don't care for the crust.), but a quick google found this triple tiered piecaken recipe that doesn't look too difficult. Perhaps it would be helpful.
