So has anyone figured out why freehold hates everything good and loves everything bad?

Like I would probably agree with most everything bizzaro freehold says. He reminds me of the Simpsons halloween episode where bart has an evil twin but then it turns out bart was the evil twin all along.

I think it just comes down to a really really variant set of preferences, and likely at least in part growing up in a significantly different family culture than a lot of the rest of us.

On the other hand, he likes Final Fantasy 6, so he's not a total loss.

I'll be the judge of that!

Takes out pen and notebook, looks under the bumper, kicks a tire, makes a note, raises eyebrow, puts pen in mouth, kicks another tire, writes something else down, taps pen, looks under bumper again, says "mmm hmm" in a judgy manner, makes another note, puts both pen and notebook down.

Yup, not a total loss!

That'll be 500 dollars.

Your walking distance and what the rest of the Midwest consider walking distance are not the same thing. In this respect, you are a freak of nature.

walking distance here depends on how poor you are.

Hey! I just did this bit!

As an aside, quick Fawtl poll:

How far away is "down the street" where you live? Is it something within visual distance? Less than a mile away? Can you walk it or would you have to drive? Is it bikeable/skateable? Or something else?

Around here "down the street" is anything walkable, usually within 3 short blocks or 1 long one.

Hmm. maybe a mile for "down the street". if I can walk it in less than 20 minutes, I probably will.

I have been known to just walk for fun about 8-10 miles.

Sigil and its factions – hilariously bad critical fumble rules notwithstanding – are my favorite part of PS, hands down.

And this metropolis has magical portals to anywhere and everywhere in the multiverse, and also beliefs can affect the physical reality of many of those planes? Yes please!

I’ve never seen anything even close to Sigil in any other gaming book or in fiction – hey, I’m sure somewhere there is – and I love the style it’s written in. I also love that it’s 100% transplantable to other cosmologies and other games – Sigil and the Factions are presented in the context of D&D’s Great Wheel, but there’s very little tying them to it. Sigil could be floating above any plane in any game that has a multiverse!

S%~+show update:
1. Four of the five people who said they were going to help unload today bailed at the last minute.
2. AC will probably need to be replaced.
3. The gas man came out to connect the gas and the line to the house failed. So no gas. Which means no cooking except on the propane grill we brought with us. Also no hot water, because it's a gas water heater.
So I've got electricity and cold water and that's it.

Man, that's rough.

I hope everything else goes way smoother.
edit: on the bright side, once the line is fixed, a gas stove is WAY better.

A few miles. I am notoriously will (weather allowing) to go for tour of shops just to get cheap things. I am getting more lazy nowdays when I don't have to maintain such tight grip on expenses as in the past, but I am still occasionally doing that.

Anyway I should do that often to improve my condition and lose excess ballast.

Pretty much this.

Between Sigil and the World Serpent, there is absolutely no reason any setting can't be connected to the planes at large.

And, NH, yes, I will kill you because there is NO ROOM ANYWHERE right now, just piles of boxes.

Yea, stuff like that is enough to make someone really grouchy…makes an already huge project seem even more insurmountable and tiring.
It just plain sucks LM, hope you get gas and the AC up and running in a hurry.

And no; I wasn't actually going to do it. If I were a bit more chaotic, and made a bit more money, and had fewer morals (hey... am I describing Shiro or what?), I'd do it.

But dumping 200 square feet of useless spinny chairs on anyone is just plain mean. Funny as ****, but mean.

So, looking at the "please notify us of deleted posts" thread, am I an evil person for wanting to go there and just reply, "Maybe if you just don't be an a$$hat, your posts won't be deleted."

But that would probably construed as negative feedback...

What if - and here me out, now - you put the boxes on the furniture...?

(The visual I'm going for is a ton of spinny chairs with boxes precariously stacked on top, wobbling from the softness... and, of course, the endless spinning, which is what will happen with kids of LM's age, everywhere.)

Well, let me put it this way: I have 9398 posts (9399 with this one), and I've been in the rules forums, and the political forums, and the advice forums, and yet in all that time, I think I've had maybe 9 posts total deleted, ever. And I knew why all 9 were deleted without having to ask.

Especially the three I got deleted with CY. What, exactly, is "derailing a thread"? In the larger scheme of things, aren't all threads FaWtL?

I would agree NH if there wasn't a... pattern... of Certain People deleting Certain Posts simply because they disliked the content, even if it did not break the rules of the forum at the time.

Some of those rules have since changed, of course, but that trust is long since shattered.
