Well, I did it. I signed the contract with the school in Dallas.
And yesterday I told the business manager at my school (the one whose husband had the heart replacement) and Hermione's teacher. There was lots of crying and hugging.
I haven't told the boss or my co-teacher yet.
My last day at work will be July 20, and we will move on August 5th (the day after Hermione's godmother's wedding).

once it was sold, I knew it was over.

Yea, I'm a bit of a picky eater.

Don't really know what to feed you if I got the chance.
But I would probably try and get my hands on some fresh game of some kind. You are a little Om-nom-nom-nivore after all :P

You asked a cat to cook. What were you expecting? =P

But I have friends from various religions and unless you are vegetarian, generally fish is acceptable by most religions. Otherwise you can land into unacceptable by Buddhists/Hindus/Muslim issues. Salmon has scales so it falls under Kosher as well.

So generally when I cook, fish tends to feature prominently so as not to offend anyone's religious sensitivities. I know you are not vegetarian as you eat game.

I finished slay the spire on Ironclad. It involved lots of body slams, barricades, imprevious, shake it off and jaggernaut.

Also an anchor, mercury hourglass and the item which gave 2 health per use of a power. Metalicize featured quite some.

If you don't want to like fish, try lutefisk.

The 5th edition betatest was a huge disappointment for my group. We switched back to 4th edition immediately after finishing the scenario we played using the new rules. I hope we get to play this Wednesday. We'd play last week but one of players got terribly sick after a trip to USA.

Around GenCon or something like that, I think.


August 2, to be precise.

I expect to have rather busy August, so I don't know how many sessions I manage to fit in what time, if any (*grumble-grumble* pesky players not having free time at the same time *grumble-grumble*).

is there a set time period for this new ruleset or did they learn from aeg's mistakes and NOT rely upon an incredibly fickle and silly card game community to create the storyline for a roleplaying game.


No idea. The betatest didn't focused much on that.

Anyway, 4th edition contains a lot of materials for various time periods, including two whole books dedicated to various time periods, past, alternate, and possible futures (Imperial Histories), and a lot of schools and alternate techniques are available in various books to represent clans and families no longer existing.


@Freehold - Yea, the last 30 som odd years of cannon history have been quite the mixed bag as far as I can tell. Some I liked, some I didn't. Then again, I'm not a huge L5R cannon buff

@Drejk - I must confess I was brought into the fold during the shift from 4th to 5th ed., so I'm not at all familiar with the previous editions.
I just liked the setting and premise of the game I was presented (ie 5th ed), sure not all the rules made sense, but I'm so use to that in nearly every game I play ^^'

No, my beef with FFG is that they tend to ruin (eventually) almost anything they get their hands on by their weird need to pull game-systems apart, and replace their innards with their "single proprietary mechanical game engine".

This reminds me of the end of Star Ocean 3.

Spoiler:
The main cast learns they're basically NPCs in a gargantuan sci-fantasy spacefaring MMO. They even learn that magic (or in the game's terms, "Runeology") is actually some characters' innate ability to hack the game's programming to produce unusual supernatural effects.

The final boss is the CEO of the MMO's creator company, pissed off that some of his NPCs have gained sentience and wanting to delete and restart the whole game to get rid of it.

Maybe as you get older you just get ruder, or maybe you're just more cognizant of other people's rudeness, but I have become so accustomed to telling people who issue last-minute invitations, "No! Give me more notice!" that I'm always perplexed when people have difficulty doing so.

So, our weekends are normally booked far in advance, what with 2 Saturday games, a Sunday game, home construction projects, people trying to get together with us on our free days, etc. So trying to get to us on weekends is "bad". This weekend in the U.S. is Memorial Day, a traditional, "Get together and have a huge barbecue day," and this year Shiro is hosting one. It's been particularly hard to arrange because we're also trying to buy a new sofa set and microwave today. (The sofa set's been planned for a while, but Impus Minor managed to kill our old microwave last night. Apparently 15 minutes on High to cook a lasagna was too much for the poor old thing.)

So today was already going to be really, really full.

Last night around 11:00 pm NobodysWife's best friend texted her that she was meeting with her other friend to plan all the logistics for a move to Portugal, and could NobodysWife please be there as well?

I would have just said, "No."
I don't care how important you think it is. If it were actually important, you wouldn't try to drag me into it with under 14 hours' notice on a 3-day weekend.

NobodysWife isn't as rude as I am, of course, so we're rearranging our entire day to accommodate her. Ah, well, what's a few more weeks of craptastic couchage until we find another time the whole family is free to find one?

Shows the highly secular (to the point of obliviousness) and mostly homogeneous society I'm from.

The though of fish being the food, where most religions can meet didn't really cross my mind ^^'
No, up here you are at most a bit cautious about, to whom you would serve pork to.
Hindu dietary prohibition didn't really cross my mind, as we have so few of them up here.
I guess I would try to get know peoples dietary habits/prohibitions before cooking them anything...then again know myself, I would probably be crass enough just to ask outright "If they have any".

How I get roped into taking over a yard project.

The General: I'm going to start with in front of the kitchen, but it will probably take me all day.

I look out and realize, for me, that's about an hour of work, even with the child sized shovel I'm forced to use since the kids broke my main shovel.

Yeah, watching "professionals" do work is always awe-inspiring to me. From thousands of hours of practice, they know how to do it efficiently and they have the muscle memory to do it without getting tired, and you watch someone do something in 10 minutes that would take you all day. It's always awe-inspiring...

Cool, I may have to look into that.

I've been working on a pet project of making balanced Meta-classes for Pathfinder. So far the only class I believe to be mostly balanced is my fighter-style class.
And yes, of course I went for the even more meta joke of having four classes in the veins of cleric, wizard, fighter, and rogue.

Now the General can do what she loves, plant a bunch of highly invasive species in a controlled environment and see what survives.

Of course, this is how killer plants are created in Pathfinder.

It's a fun game, IMO, though you probably need to be a fan of JRPGs in general to agree. It's a PS2 title, so you'll either need one of those or a backwards-compatable PS3 (or PS4 if they go back that far) or an emulator program on your computer.

PS 4 are not backwards compatible at all.

The switch isn't backwards compatible either, but hey, how much can you ask for? the thing has like 50 diffrent functions in each joy-con, and you can get a used wii for $50 and play wii, gamecube, and NES, SNES, and N64 games on it.

okay, you can't buy them anymore, but I've got some.
Edit: also, breath of the wild is on the switch.

Indeed! I'm very happy for you, but disappointed you're moving a week and a half before our visit.

And considering the last time I went to Texas I was almost hit by a truck and stung by a scorpion (yes, it was my birthday, I was five) I think I'll let you visit us.

I have a RetroPi for most of that. But I do still want a Switch, for BOTW, Mario, and maybe the upcoming new Pokemon, eventually.

I hear they are soon going to be releasing a version of the Switch that doesn't come with the Dock included, so if you don't mind it always being on portable mode (which I very much do not, I was planning on using it exclusively that way anyway) it might soon be available slightly cheaper.

If you've been to one town in the Midwest you've been to them all.

Sure, the diner with the best pie might have a different specialty, and it might have a brat fest instead of a tractor pull, but otherwise, entirely interchangeable.

So, yes for the purposes of not admitting to a typo we'll go with your answer. :-)

EEEHH... as much as I like the switch, you want the dock.

It is a perfectly functional portable gamesystem (even the aweome breath of the wild motion controls function while portable), but it is actually much better as a console IMO, so... also, much easier to dock it to charge then to plug it in. That said, I got mine while interning over the summer and staying in peoples houses, so I started off just playing portable for a good month and a half at least before I have mostly just docked it.
also Hulu has an amazing stream service on the switch, in my 100+ hours of streaming off the switch, I've sat and buffered after the show started like twice.

Shadow Lodge

I don't have a TV. Having a dock would be pointless.
