Its super warm today. I feel miserable.

Well, the Week from Heck is over (late birthday dinner Tuesday, Gloryhammer concert on Thursday, graduation and paternal grandmother sleepover on Friday, clearing maternal grandmother's front yard Saturday, Shiro's game and a movie on Sunday), so FaWtL members who are hooking up with us in Europe should expect emails this evening clarifying where we'll be when and whatnot.

Now all I have to do is finish clearing the storage facility, restore the house to sanity, and teach Impus Major to drive.

No problemo.

I'm putting in a patio for a chicken coop, in the General's hometown (which she just yesterday vowed to never return to).

Already put in a small wall.

Yeah, well I'm done trying to sell you all for warmer weather, you people clearly have no monetary value.

Oh no...I had such high hopes...

Bummer! I was looking forward to it, too!

I'm not the rabid Jarmusch fan my sister is (it's pretty much exactly like her and the Ramones - she adores them, I think they're kinda cool but I don't usually listen to them). But the coffee shop scene with GZA, RZA and Bill Murray in Coffee and Cigarettes is one of my favorites. ("You spit that out. Do NOT swallow, Bill Murray.")
So I was hoping this would be a Jarmusch-flavored Shaun of the Dead.

Well, I'd like to respond with, "Your tastes may vary", but when it's a non-controversial movie with no likely "ballot-stuffing" and it's at 53% critics, 43% audience on Rotten Tomatoes you know it has some fundamental issues.

That 43% represents people who wanted to see the movie. That's pretty bad.

I am having a blast working in the General's hometown.

You don't know if people are gawking at you because you're working for an unfamiliar company from The Big City, if they recognize you (we dated in high school, I was a frequent visitor), or if it's because you look like a hippie.

Or all of the above.

I drove through there the last time I was in the area.

So, given a choice between:
(a) spending three days doing yard work,
(b) seven hours working on my garage, or
(c) five hours paying bills, balancing accounts, and working on our household financial projections for the next 30 days,
guess which one I'd least prefer to do?
Now guess which one I've been doing all morning?
BUT, it's done, and things seem to be not quite as horrid as I originally thought. I've been avoiding working on the finances because I was worried that I'd have to go 60 days on a bill or two in order to pay for my gas to Oregon, but it turns out that we're going to squeak by. (I got paid for my unused sick leave at school at the end of May.) We can even make our debt repayment installment to my mother-in-law this month, which had been making me very nervous. This makes me happy.

Neat, it's a smart chicken coop, at regular intervals it plays classical music for them.

I wonder if that's how they get the Omega-3 in the eggs.

Mainly for LM, because she knows Shiro and his insatiable appetite for terrible movies.

Shiro: OK. Here's my "official" review of the movie: It sucked.

If it went to sleep in 10 minutes, then it should still be in the download phase. You should be fine, and it should pick up where it left off.

EDIT: I emphasize the word "should". I always say should. It should do this. Doesn't mean it will, but that's the behavior it's supposed to exhibit.

Additionally, turn off your computer's ability to go to sleep. And the VPN timeout after one hour is just stupid - that's your IT department's fault. Ours times out after 8 hours.

Fully agree with your last opinion. Veepn timeout is 8 hours as usual and I really don't understand how they set 1 hour timing and it's so uncomfortable I suppose

This Year's Father's Day:
A nice, peaceful Sunday as everyone forgot about it. Then Impus Major woke up at 12:15 pm today, started surfing the web, said, "Oh, yeah, yesterday was Father's Day," then ran off to the corner store.

So a couple of minutes ago, the Impii walked up to me with Impus Minor banging on a drum, presented me with a blank receipt-sized scrap of paper that said, "Hapy Hankah Dab! Imp 8. Help"

I said, "Where's my banana?"
Impus Minor pulled a banana out from behind his back and handed it to me.
"Where's my penny?"
Impus Major pulled a penny out of his pocket and handed it to me.
"Where's my tape?"
"Budget cuts."

Then Impus Minor took a bite out of the banana (peel and all), threw it back on my desk, and they walked off.

I love my kids.

GothBard: My review was far more eloquent: The first third of the movie was pleasant, albeit slow paced before the entire movie dissolved into a morass of failed potential.

This story's for Freehold. Maybe.

So yesterday on the way to Mrs Sunrise's birthday escape room event, she wanted coffee. So when we saw a sign for "Bikini Beans Coffee," she said "Oh good, let's stop there." The sign should have been a clue, but neither of us thought anything of it. We pull up to the beachcomber style coffee stand, and out walks a 120-pounds-soaking-wet 20-something in a bikini to take our order.

Mrs Sunrise's comment to me: I guess it's your birthday too!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MRS SUNRISE!

Directions to the abscondi-cave will be sent to you momentarily, please enjoy this 100 dollar gift card. That's right, as everything is free in the abscondi-cave, I will pay YOU to party there!

Hello party people.

My S.O. likes to point out girls she thinks are hot to me. So we can both nod and go yelp.

That was in response to tequila not just a random fact.

Oh and happy birthday to the lot of you.


Hm. Irritating. I can't find "tiers of play" for the old 3e/3.5e or PF games. Instead, I keep getting referred to "tiers of classes" which, while appreciated, is not what I'm looking for.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I've not heard that term before.

What is teirs of play?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That makes sense. I may have had my vocabulary infected by later editions - that might be a reason I'm not finding what I'm looking for (though I thought it was the language used).

Tiers of play essentially tells you what kinds of adventures you tend to go on, depending on your level.

As a made-up half-example:

1-3: village heroes
4-6: heroes of the city
7-9: heroes of region
10-12: heroes of the country
13-15: heroes of continent
16-19: heroes of world
20+: heroes of forever

Obviously it doesn't quite line up like that; I literally just took groups of three levels and made up something about them. You could go into more specifics, like:

Quote:
1-3: village heroes - At this tier of play, the PCs are generally facing threats that might threaten a few people, or even a small village. Perhaps saving a child lost in the woods, a farmer's daughter that was kidnapped by a small gang of thugs, or exploring an old graveyard said to be haunted.

(Again, this is just made up by me just now.)

Basically, I'm trying to find the "scope" expected at different levels of play across the 3e-to-PF systems.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I don't think the tiers of gameplay were defined before 4th edition (which had 1-10, 10-20, and 20-30 explicitly listed). I think the GMs were supposed to decide for themselves the scope of adventures in relation to party level.


6 people marked this as a favorite.

I thought Tears of Play was something created by a tough GM.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I have heard of that concept before. I usually keep pretty well to it as well. I get upset if I'm first level and already working directly for a king or god or what have you.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't think there's any kind of official "tiers" for Pathfinder, but based on what I've seen from playing various adventure paths, I'd say your list is pretty good.

So, I had lunch in the General's hometown yesterday, because her whole family went off on these "great places to eat" and wow, was it TERRIBLE!

Even more inedible then White Castle, or Old Country Buffet (I've gotten food poisoning three times in my life, twice from Old Country Buffet).

I've been to places that my friends say were awesome but It made me think I was gonna die. One place in particular was an all you can eat fried seafood restaurant. So sick. so very sick. It didn't even taste that good.

Hey now! There ain't nothing wrong with a little White Castle from time to time. There ain't nothing particularly right with it either, but there sure ain't nothing wrong with it.

Not even 8:30am and people are already burning popcorn in the break room. It's bad enough that I'm shocked the fire alarm hasn't been triggered.

Old Country Buffet...thanks for that disgusting memory. I think I'm going back down to the break room to smell something delightful by comparison.
