Polgara actually said in the book "Polgara the Sorceress" she preferred to think of it as the wish and the word.

"I wish I wasn't nekkid"

Now that should fix it, no?

Guess not.

*puts on clothes*


the word doesn't seem as important. Its more like the mental image of what they want I feel at least by how its described. I guess the word is just simpler to explain.

The Exchange

Clothes! More clothes!


Someones will must have beat yours Mort.

I bet it's all Freehold's fault. Maybe Kjeldorn's as well and maybe Seth,just for a third person to throw the blame on.


Seeeeeeeeth!!!!!!!!

Now the will and the word is a nice simplistic way of having magic function, however I will say it doesn't give me much help when it comes to describing more intricate spellcasting for pathfinder. And you really should have nice intricate flashy spellcasting rituals involving a sacrifice of a chicken or goat.


Now with pathfinder the Words seem a lot more important. You can kind of imagine that weird Latin language that has to be spoken precisely. Harry potter has that kind of spell casting too.

Really Will is almost always a part in all fantasy spell casting.

The Exchange

When you get to occult spellcasting, it's really all the will. No words and finger waving involved.

Verbal components replaced by thought components, somantic components replaced by emotion components. I'm still trying to figure if occult spellcasting has material components, but if a psychic was going to Cast wish, I'd make him cough out the 25k gp diamond.

My BFs friend is still bemoaning about dark souls when he died and lost 50k souls.


That's fair. Occult spellcasting seems very similar to psionics to me. I kind of wondered if the finger waveing and words are just a method to get the mind where it needs to be to actually create the effects of the spell. Like a mantra.

So much work to gather all those materials and my diamond pick and armor and sword. Its hurts so much.

Oh btw I’ll be away from 15-16 November for my company retreat. Expect no posts on both days as I run around having fun. Probably on the 15th night I’ll have drunk too much to post(it takes me about 4h to sober up), and I have a yoga session at 5.30 am to 6.15 am in the morning on the 16th morning…followed by a nature walk at 9 am in the morning.

I was considering joining the jogging on the beach from 7.00 am to 8.30 am, but again it’s on the beach (more tiring) and I sure as heck can’t jog for 1h 30 min straight.30 min might still be doable, but 1h 30…eh sorry nope I’m not that good. Not to mention, when am I going to be able to eat breakfast?!

Eating too much before a jog is just a recipe for stitches.


No drunk Mort posts. That's sad.

The Exchange

Even if I posted while drunk, I wouldn’t be so inebriated that my posts wouldn’t make sense. I probably wouldn’t be able to type coherently, but there’s phone autocorrect to fix that, so the post won’t sound like a drunk post, if you get what I mean.


Yeah that would be disappointing. unlike Freehold's posts that one time.

The Exchange

What's the point of saying stuff that no one, including you, actually understands?

All I know is, in Germany, I'm a God.


They do really like The Hoff in Germany. I got to be honest with you that avatar doesn't look anything like him. Was that the closed you could find?

I was probably being lazy, or drunk. I created a bunch of aliases when I was drunk once.


See Mort drunk behavior can be entertaining.

All right, I just had a swig of Bénédictine neat, about 1/5th a cup while my mom wasn't looking. Better then asking her permission to, I'm really tired of feeling cold.

Again since it's a herbal liqueur so you're not supposed to drink to excess.

So if anyone was looking for intoxicated posting, here's an example of posting under the influence of alcohol.


Wow Mort you certainly deliver fast.

Yesterday since I knew WW's mother was coming at lunch, I spent an hour of the morning moving every single remaining box of unpacked, unsorted stuff to my bedroom. I put an old sheet on top of the bed, stacked the boxes on and around, and closed the door. Then I cleaned.
So when she arrived, my house *looked* beautiful. Mostly.
Then after they both left at 4ish, I spent three hours sorting through boxes, because in the final mad rush to leave California, things just got thrown in willy-nilly. Kids' toys with sewing/crafting supplies with books with socks. So... sorting.
So far I have sorted three boxes to go into the garage and two for goodwill.
My aim is to get it finished tonight, so the house is DONE, and next week when I'm on vacation, I can take a day or two to work on the garage. Maybe finally find our knives.
BUT, the house is clean enough for us to have people over now.

The Exchange

Got tired of the cold(it's 80F now here). Now I'm toasty warm. At least till the effects of the alcohol wear out. Anyway, I went to test out how under influence of alcohol I was, so I decided to start playing piano.

Bring me to life I missed the bridging sections, while on pacabells I fumbled a bit. Again I haven't done bring me to life for a while so I might have gotten a bit of memory lapse, though pacabells usually doesn't have any issues.

Basically parts of songs I don't remember so well get a bit fumbly, otherwise I'm still pretty much myself.

What LM, you don't have knives?! Then how have you been doing the cooking for these few weeks? And grats in getting your house in livable condition =)

I have two cheap knives I got from Family Dollar, a chef's and a serrated. The chef's actually holds a decent edge, I was kinda surprised. But somewhere in the garage we have good-ish knives.

Also settled with WW's mom yesterday was the question of Thanksgiving.
I am cooking, but she is hosting. So, yes, I have to cook everything at my house and then schlep it half an hour to her house, BUT, she doesn't ruin a turkey by cooking it for 24 hours at 185.

Knives are important! You never know when you have to shank someone!

Isn't 24 h too long to cook a turkey?

Benedictine and hot water is a traditional winter drink in the delightful Northern English town of Burnley. When the town where I live still had a footsocc team, we had a bit of a local rivalry, so the town centre was filled with geared-up coppers every match-day. Nobody ever got clonked with a bottle of Bene, though, to the best of my knowledge.

In my family, my aunt and her daughter-in-law have been doing the hosting and handling of turkey/ham/stuffing at the daughter-in-law's house. However, every other household is assigned one of the side dishes. Aiymi and I usually end up only having to cook one thing, but we live about an hour and a half or so away from them. The good news is that they take that into consideration when they assign us something.

Yup, the ground is frozen and it's flurrying.

Yet here I am, and loving it, because at least I'm not working at the toy store.

Although, judging by how frozen the ground is, I'll be applying for work at the other toy store for the winter soon enough.

Try for one of the game stores instead. The clientele may still be annoying, but at least it will be a different kind of annoying. Variety is important.

Don't forget to hide webcams all over their bathroom, that way you know if they're getting low on toiletries and can also post compromising videos online before someone else does.

I forgot how amazing the acting was in django unchained. Blew me away when watched part of it en route to work. Amazing performances. One of the best revenge movies ever made, from a man who made his career on revenge films.

The Gory Details:
So, I think I've mentioned that Lara Croft guy loves to build ridiculous cheese builds, then roleplay them terribly. Yesterday he nearly got us into a TPK. Against nothing more dangerous than succubus rogues, no less.

They ambushed us rather nicely, teleporting in among us to provide themselves with all the flanks they needed to do significant damage. My rogue stepped to the edge and told the rest of the party to gather around her to protect themselves from flanks (while I'm still of the opinion that rogues are virtually useless, the whole, "Immune to opponents' flanks" can be extremely handy in situations like this one). In an utter bafflement, Forth took a 5' step away from my rogue and into a full set of flanks (6 enemies, now ALL flanking him) to "try to protect the sorcerer". He didn't go defensive, or Smite Evil, or do anything to protect himself; just, "5' step, full attack, done". In a similar vein, the sorcerer (also run by Lara Croft guy) chose to cast an Aqueous Orb (requiring Reflex saves from a bunch of rogues) rather than Haste (which would have let the melee fighters wipe the walls with the succubi).

The "hilarity" was unending:

  • The paladin succumbed to the massive number of flanks rather quickly, dying and going to -43 hit points, which might have been significant vis a vis Breath of Life, except:
  • One succubus, being intelligent, attempted to grapple the sorcerer. On his final spell before becoming grappled, he cast an Acid Pit that caught my rogue, but none of the succubi, since they were flying. My rogue ended up in the pit with a summoned babau demon. Fortunately, she had a wand of Spider Climb and an AC of 30, so she just left the demon in the pit to fend for himself, but it took her out of the fight for several rounds.
  • As GothBard's inquisitor and my rogue killed the succubus grappling the sorcerer (but not before she'd pinned him and drained a level), he Dimension Doored away, never to return to the fight.
  • So, long story short, my rogue and Gothbard's inquisitor got to fight three succubi rogues pretty much on their own, but with my rogue's dedication to AC (she was frequently at 37 during the fight) and the inquisitor going all-out defensive to get up to 29, they couldn't hit us, and we whittled them down and killed them.

  • But hoo, boy! What should have been a walkover fight with a Haste and an Aura of Justice turned into a squeaker.

    Ouch.
