ah ... but Wood Earth Iron Crystal Ivory and Obsidian are not shiney.

I only count two shiney rings.

Goblin Squad Member

All can, however, be polished nicely, including Earth. Shadow's the one I'm having trouble imagining as shiny.

Goblin Squad Member

Obsidian is a shiny stone, and while shiny is counterproductive for shadow, it can be a useful distraction.

Goblin Squad Member

Obsidian is volcanic glass. Here is an image of obsidian crafted into spearheads by some ancient humans. Even though it is a midnight black, it is still shiny.

Come on, where's your inner poet?

Buried. Deep. Beside my inner philosopher.

Goblin Squad Member

My stars shine darkly over me; the malignancy of my fate might, perhaps, distemper yours; therefore I shall crave of you your leave that I may bear my evils alone.

I always found that quote, taken from "Twelfth Night" by Shakspeare, quite captivating.

Your prior use of that particular phrase was very much in my mind when I asked Jazz about his "inner poet" :)

Goblin Squad Member

Ah poetry. I can't say this instrumentalist is very good at it, but we do have some fine poets in our ranks! And we could certainly use more fine poets to add to our ranks (and those who aren't are quite welcome as well!)

Yesterday at some point after some Elkhaven votes rolled in, I guess not everyone was on board with their merger, but I'm not sure it has yet to be seen who will come out on top :D

Har har... "Standings Position On Tally"

In the end it will all come down to how many small companies with no real chance of their own settlement opt for joining the established more organised groups with plans in motion and guaranteed support and how many decide to throw their lot in with a bunch of other little companies and see what comes out of it.

Goblin Squad Member

Thanks, Bringslite. :) Still glad to see Ozem's Vigil doing well.

And certainly will be interesting to see how everything shakes out. I hope the smaller guilds find a good fit for their home, be it with us or other compatible settlements.

I am proud a member of the The Seventh Veil, but if I were not, I'd definitely be interested in joining Keepers of the Circle. I've conversed with many of them and will gladly say they are a great bunch of people (plus they have a female in their core leadership, which I think every settlement should, or at least a gay male).

Though I do hear they owe Old Buurz a ring or two, she hasn't stopped yapping about it...

:-)

Goblin Squad Member

<nods>

Mmmhmm, them do, shiny lady.

Goblin Squad Member

I think we had a conversation about forging rings on a mountain top at one point... ;)

(And we actually have two females in our leadership, both myself and our Watcher, Nymerias.)

Both of whom are in a word, fantastic, leaders. I feel privileged every time I get to help contribute to what we hope to build together.

Aww thanks :) And really, all our leaders and members are great to work with and fun as well. We have two online Pathfinder games going on within the guild and it's a blast.

Grand Lodge

Ahem, *cough*bump*cough*.

Thank you :D

Goblin Squad Member

Hehe, Nice! :)

Wxcougar is quickly becoming among my favorite GMs that I have played with over the years. The rest of the group is a lot of fun to play with as well.

Both games are using the Emerald Spire adventure from the Kickstarter (I'm guessing that's where they obtained it).

Goblin Squad Member

Yup, I am using the PDF from the kickstarter of Emerald Spire. I found a neat little pdf reader for my Kindle that lets me do notes and bookmarks. Our other GM did all the real work though since he set up the roll20 maps and monsters.

Goblin Squad Member

Shame I am in the Aussie timezone and the current games are US, I enloy online table top games. In the past I used to play 3.5 online a lot. Mainly to preplay the modules I ran for my local RPGA living greyhawk group, but it was actually rather fun in its own right.

Goblin Squad Member

We tried to spread it out with one in the morning US (or really late night for one overseas member) and afternoon/evening US.

I could possibly have made one of the games at a stretch so not complaining.

It is good to see so many Keepers members getting actively involved in Pathfinder and getting to know each other, even before early enrolment.

Goblin Squad Member

No worries, I know it's impossible to cover everyone but had wanted to try :).

And soon we can all get together in game -which is an exciting thought.

At the risk of offending any of them reading this, the term feels a bit oxymoronic ;-).
Well, they are the things that terrify the most: Vampires, mummies, and ghosts.

Spotted this a few pages back.

If you assume a world where sentience is possible without life the same ethical/alignment discussion could be had about numerous other possibilities, intelligent constructs for example.

If I recall correctly issues regarding the rights of vampires, clay golems, mummies and so forth come up regualrly in Terry Pratchetts books.

Grand Lodge

Yup, the zombie and undead population of Ankh-Morpork have created a support group called the Fresh Start Club to help address the stigma of undeath and fight the misconceptions and disgust society has for them.

Very therapeutic.

I'm so happy some else is a TP fan.

Goblin Squad Member

The location of Keepers Pass is somewhat reminiscent of Lancre actually.

Goblin Squad Member

I'm afraid I have to admit to not reading those books.

You need to.

Also congratulations on getting us to 82 members overnight.

Goblin Squad Member

I do have it on my list, but my to read list is quite long.

More proposed KotC symbols have been added to the KotC Symbol Thread. Feel free to stop by and check them out, then vote for your favorite here.

I quite enjoy Pratchett's books, but I'm also amused to see the Jimmy Buffet quote :P

Goblin Squad Member

I suppose I should poll to see which of his books I should start with.

Goblin Squad Member

KOTC WxCougar wrote:

There are about 40 books now. They tend to have themes.

- witches books (Wyrd Sisters, Carpe Jugulum etc)
- nightwatch books (Men at Arms, Fifth Elephant, Guards Guards etc)
- death books (Mort, Reaperman, Soul Music etc)
- Rincewind Books (Color of magic etc)

There are also three English TV Movies based on Hogfather, The Colour of Magic and Going Postal .

Grand Lodge

I'd start off with the Colour of Magic and then The Light Fantastic first, but then again, I'm a sucker for any Rincewind novels.

Goblin Squad Member

Will take note. Thanks. Anyone read Diana W. Jones?

Goblin Squad Member

No, though I have a preference for female fantasy authors, particularly Australian ones like Isobell Carmody, Trudi Canavan, Sara Douglass, Tracey Harding, Glenda Larke, Sophie Masson and Fiona Macintosh.

A good intro to the Craziness of Pratchett might be the Hogfather TV movie.

Goblin Squad Member

of course. Miyazaki's film adaptations are rather decent portrayals of D.W.J., and I'm afriad I've seen more than I've read (having only read castle in the air and the dark lord of derkham).
