Possibly, and play the bluff. But once they conceded when the Mecha Cthun actually came out on the table.

Hmm maybe I should just go ahead and make it then. I wonder if it works for any other deck besides druid. Druid is the only one I have the gold portatit on I've been trying to branch out to other classes more.

But against too fast aggro you can't pull it off. Not getting too many wins, but again now is when the super pro Hearthstone players are on.

I have gold on mage, nothing else.

Yeah aggro is usually the route I go. It does good against everything but mid range typically. Midrange however tends to suck against the end game combo decks so rock paper scisory.

Basically the key to this whole deck is stay alive until your wear your deck down. Make sure you keep an ineverate, a neutralize and a mecha'thun as the last 3 cards in your hand with 10 mana to start your turn with. Then Mecha'thun, ineverate and neutralize it.

Yeah I don't think many other classes cna draw ramp and has a kill spell that they can play with chtun.

Quite possibly. It seems to make me feel my eyes tired but not really sleepy beyond that.

If I have the chance to select my method of execution, it will indeed be of crushed pelvis via snu-snu.

Last time I was on the dating scene the only people with cell phones were drug dealers and douche bags.

So alas, even if I wanted to I wouldn't be able to call or text massage any of my old girlfriends.

I've found that melatonin creates a 'wave' of drowsiness, and I need to be in bed with the lights off when the wave comes. If I'm up and doing things when the wave hits, my brain will simply power thru it, and I'll stay awake. Drowsy, but awake.

The speed at which the wave comes also depends on absorption: a lot of people with my condition (cystic fibrosis) absorb things very slowly, and so might wait hours to get drowsy.

That might be what is happening with me, though the effects were similar when I took one pill immediately before going to bed - it was when I had a rather annoyingly sore throat so it might be responsible for me not being able to sleep.

The play test is starting to grow on me.

I don't like that sleight of hand and disable device are both lumped in to a skill called "thievery" and definitely don't like how ancestry feats are done but otherwise I've liked the changes so far.

OK. I lie a little. They existed. But nobody but nobody had them, they had amazingly bad coverage, and they weighed around 2 1/2 pounds. It was the 1G days...

We were married in 2001 and lived together for two years before that, so spring of 1999 was the last time I dated anyone else.

Edit: We also dated for 8 months in high school, when I was 17 and she was 16, but we met when we were 16 and 15, she lived two towns to the north.

I had a friend in high school that got a pager at a pawn shop in Madison and was able to subtly press the button to make it go off so he could pretend people were paging him in front of girls to try to impress them.

He was surprisingly successful.

So, there's a reason old men get grumpy and sit on their porches.

It's Sunday, which means it's Farmer's Market down at the end of the block. Which means there are a bunch of kids running all over the street, because it's a very kid-friendly market, and so it's a big social event for a lot of parents around here.

As usual, our street, which is only 25' wide curb to curb is the major thoroughfare to the circle, as certain other residents who will remain nameless have vehemently objected to putting Stop signs or speed bumps on the 2-block, 800' stretch.

So every few weeks, I hear a car speeding along (you can kind of tell how fast they're going by the noise they're making), then hear it slam on its brakes and the driver lean on his or her horn. Usually it's because of people trying to parallel park on the narrow street. Sometimes it's because of kids.

But boy, oh, boy does it make me want to sit on my front porch with a radar gun and a pile of bricks.

Break the speed limit = brick through the windshield. Seems fair to me.

Waxing philosophical on speed limits:
And the thing that gets to me is, I blame the U.S.'s bizarre enforcement of speed laws. I really couldn't care less if some guy wanted to do 142 in his Lamborghini down the left lane of Highway 5, because it's a clear road with great visibility, and he's in a car that can handle it. Freeway speed limits were originally introduced to save gas during the oil embargo of the 1970s. But they were so profitable they've stayed, even when raising speed limits in various states did not significantly affect the highway mortality rate. The notion that "speed kills" has been disproven on the highway, through multiple statewide live trials, if you will. If you eliminate people who are changing lanes to go around slower drivers, speeding really isn't dangerous at all, except for inexperienced drivers. Who, unfortunately, are the most likely to really pour it on. But that's another debate.

Yet highway speeding is enforced maniacally, to the point of unwritten quotas for number of speeding tickets per month for state officers, as we discussed a few weeks ago. Because it's profitable.

On the other hand, if someone does 30 mph down any single-lane residential street (in my mind, that's a single lane in either direction, so technically 2 lanes total), I get pissed off. Kids, cats, jaywalking idiots, and other unexpected events happen all the time. I'd be perfectly happy if every single-lane residential street in the U.S. had radar-triggered spike strips that flattened the tires of anyone speeding there. Because speeding in residential neighborhoods does kill.

And yet that's the one that doesn't get enforced (at least in California), because the state takes all the money from the tickets so it's not worth the local officers' time to write tickets.

Grr...

And the mathematical breakthrough that allowed all of modern mathematics to progress was NOT the concept of 0, since it's been around since time immemorial; it was using zero as a placeholder to say, for example, "There are no tens in this number."

I like to call the skill, "Sleight" myself, because it's a much broader term for trickery, and can apply to acts of manual dexterity (hence "sleight of hand") or more nuance mental interaction (for complexities, like disabling devices), making rogues and those with such skill effectively more clever and skilled over-all, rather than exclusively "thieves." Unfortunately, it's also got the context of mildly insulting someone, but, eh, I could live with that.

Hah! True!

One of the actual mind-bending things, I find, is when we've had a concept forever but just have never gotten around to using it in a very (seemingly) obvious manner, and then, all of a sudden, *poof* it all gets revolutionized by what is, ultimately, a really simple change.

Fantasy Races: Nyr Erain. I have been working on them for over a year. Similarity to Dead Cells is rather coincidental, though it did influenced some finishing touches...

Spoiler:
In fact the initial version assumed them being half-undead spirits that use reanimated corpses as their bodies before I decided to rewrite them as made of shadowstuff. I made that change long-long ago. Apparently the creators of Dead Cells found my cast off thought and used it for the main character...

I am annoyed not by naming but by the very fact of merging two very different skills - (1) mechanics and (2) nimble fingers into one.

I had disassembled and reassembled lock and some other devices, but in no way does that mean I could palm an object or reliably steal anything from another person. I can't even make a coin slide on my knuckles without dropping it.

The Avengers: Infinity Wars certainly was an orgiastic celebration of Joss Whedon, I hope he has it out of his system now and is ready to make an actual movie with the next one.

Terrible movie, what a waste of a talented cast.

My family has been planning a family reunion on Facebook for Labor Day weekend, which I just found out about from my dad.

However, this year no agonizing over if we go, because they decided to have it in the town where I spent my teen years, which I solemnly vowed never to return to, so of course we're not going.

Hey, if it works, it works! She had the correct concept! I think you had the right approach: "So, the notation you're using works, but it's not what anyone else uses. Thus, not only will you not be able to show someone else what you're doing, but a lot of people are going to say what you're doing is wrong. How hard would it be to start using Os instead of Xs?"

She might not change, and that would be her choice, but at least she'd know it wasn't the way "most" people did it.

I know you've already mentioned why in the past, but I've forgotten.

ranty mcrantrant:
For me, the two reasons I don't follow the occult classes/haven't kept up with them, is because a) it's literally called occult, and that's just... that's... I'd have to explain so much, if I ever mentioned such things to family, and b) I'm bitter that the psychic stuff tried to directly oppose (to the point of using the same names for entirely different effects) psionics - though, I admit, I honestly can't tell whether it's intended as an homage or a repudiation (and, given the opinions of those on staff, it may well be both).

Either way, I'm disappointed in a lack of power points, despite knowing that it wouldn't be a thing coming... it's just that they took so many of the names of some of my favorite effects in psionics and turned them into entirely different effects and tied it to Vancian-style casting; it's just kind of painful to read through.

I will say that the undercasting mechanic, what I've seen of it, it quite clever, and I like it, but, again, it's like a worse version of power-point style augmentation as what more or less feels like a slap-patch onto the rather frustrating Vancian system.

I also feel like the you know, nevermind. I've been GMing and forgot what I started out typing, and don't feel like continuing on this, anyway.

Short version, they seem brilliant, but for entirely personal reasons I can't really get around to playing them or deep-diving into the system. It's frustrating, but there you go.

But the Medium is probably the niftiest class I will never play without a substantial refluff.
