Gran - I only managed 2 wins for the tavern brawl. Mech mage isn't really fast enough against beast face hunter decks, and I got avianaed. The last one was close, we were like who draws the last nuke first wins. Sadly, he did :(

I suspect all that spam is actually due to a bot. It's just a program they keep running, so even if you reached out on their monitors there would likely be no one there...

You can have bots to farm anything/spam stuff these days >.<

I have a game where it was reeeeeeally bad. The GM was so terrified of getting a reaction from his SO that the game was "GM's SO Heroic Story: How To Make Everyone Else In The Party An Ineffectual And Nameless Lackey"

It almost ruined a multi-year campaign. By the time he finally corrected some of the issues, the SO's power loss did upset her - even if she understood why everyone else had a problem.

The GM has to be sure of not only their own ability to run the game well, but also their SO's understanding and acceptance of the situation.

If Wolverine were born in the 20th century and if he were trying to keep his immortality a secret once he realizes he's not aging or dying, what would be the hazards of living 'on the grid' during the modern and near-future era?

Nevermind 'Logan lives in his truck' -- he wants a house, kids, a credit card, and to pay his taxes.

Just got done with my part in flagging spam. With all that I do every week, I may as well be a Paizo employee. :P I swear, I wish I could reach through the monitor and slap these morons for the obnoxious amounts of spam they sent. Around 50 posts. All that time they wasted with doing something un-productive. None of us read Korean. None of us live in Korea. This is just so ... GRAAAWR!!!!

The entire point is only to be more well-known on search engines - anyone here stupid enough to follow through would just be a mild and unlikely bonus.

EDIT: Ninja'd by a kitty!

Then there's situations like mine.

Way back when, I had this plot where I had the PCs stealing two divine avatars from the evil deity Shar - which would require two "hosts" that have them instead, but Shar would still experience everything that they do (as they were her avatars), just lose control over them, and no longer be able to use any powers through them. The actual "divine power" would be shattered and sorted into a bunch of other people, severed from Shar's direct influence.

So basically, two women would get "bargain bin divinity" where you get the problems without the actual benefits. There were two NPC females that the party were supposed to be working with that were actively against Shar and were (originally) supposed to be part of the game. Obviously, these were the ones that were intended.

... instead the group (almost)* unanimously elected my wife's character, and another PC's NPC angry and disgruntled maid/personal servant/accountant. In my party's defense, they never realized that either were supposed to be all that important. I mean, there was, like, one of them that they acknowledged as being a significant character, but then never did anything else with her again, so... they were never brought to the place where the ritual was going down.

So now, my SO was a "goddess" in my campaign. That... doesn't look good. Granted, everyone else got the shade template** (though a couple of them didn't want it), and she got: to look different than she originally wanted to***.

And it's worth noting that nobody else in the group ever remembered that she didn't really get divine powers. One guy in particular - a sorcerer - kept forgetting that she was the only one without SR, so when he, say, used fireball to win an argument against all of his mostly-invulnerable shade allies, she (who was always the one asking everyone to just... stop arguing) was the only one who took any damage. (To his "credit," he would apologize and prestidigitate some flowers and chocolate flavor. It... happened more than once.)

In any event, they all eventually went on mythic quests for various purposes, and most of them became minor gods of various sorts, with others becoming extremely important and even establishing long-lasting organizations. In fact, all of them appeared several times thereafter in future games (though the 4E one mostly talked about the remnants of most of them, considering the areas wiped out by the Spellplague).

* My wife didn't exactly vote for anyone - she was one of the last ones to speak, and by that point, it wouldn't have mattered, as the votes were cast. So she just kind of shrugged and went, "... okay?"

** Fast healing, attack and damage bonuses, spell-like abilities, movement options, SR, stealth abilities, and so on. No LA, though.

*** Muuuuuuuuuuuuch later down the line, the two avatars would gain powers that reflected their new state, to an extent, after establishing themselves as different identities from Shar, and gaining power on their own. But it took a long time before she was anything other than, "that different-looking swashbuckler."

Yet more rain in Pittsburgh. Yet more worries about landslides. A landslide this past week turned a house into splinters.

What have I been thinking today?

1) Bloody hell, it's cold.

2) Would it be possible to have sex in plate armour?

My guess would be yes, possibly, but I shall have to ask my historical reenactment pals what they think, and whether they've tried it.

I bet they have.

They certainly don't care about casting the same people for secondary characters on The Office.

G$$!#+n. Making a Mario and Rabbids crossover, and then designing it as an X-Com style strategy RPG, is an objectively stupid idea. Yet the final product is SO MUCH fun.

Oh, I'm sure we'd end up in politics and Freehold would throw things at us, but I noticed the headline in Google News, and just HAD to click on the Fox News version of the article because I was sure it would be hilarious (to me), and it was.

Fox News does not care for California. The article is so over-the-top hostile it makes me giggle.

Florida Man dyed in an unnamed hotel room after finding a black market botox specialist on Craigslist.

California Man was murdered in his box under an I-5 bridge by trust fund teenagers.

Wisconsin Man is still available, assuming he can put down the cheese curds and he isn't insensibly drunk yet.

Well, at least today I can access the boards! Yesterday they wouldn’t come up on my phone and I was having WiFi issues. On the bright side, it looks like they sorted the issues that really annoyed me while I was gone. I can get used to the rest.

Today has been a weird day. I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep lately. So this morning I was really struggling. I got the kidlet to school and came home and ate some breakfast, but halfway through my coffee I ended up spilling the rest of the cup on the floor in my sleep deprived fumbling. And then I was just sitting on the floor trying to mop it up and crying because I couldn’t even coffee right. While this is a perfectly normal response to spilled coffee, it was also a sign that I had not had enough of the sleep. So I went back to bed for a couple of hours.

If the bleeding doesn't stop - see the doctor. I understand some people have blood clotting issues and it can get nasty.

I have normal blood pressure and I've never had a problem with it before.

So no worries here.

I have low blood pressure and my problem lies in the other direction.

Occasionally there is a problem filling a bag of blood when I try to donate blood. Not that I've done it recently, my iron count hasnt qualified for blood donations due to being too low.

I don't feel any of the issues, per se.
