McSorleys would be good. Haven't been there before.

Nothing like a tourist to make you go to places you always ignored.

If all else fails there's always Lovecraft.

We may not be able to meet up until closer to 8. Hopefully that works out.

I don't care where we go, as long as it's quiet and I can have my back to the wall facing the doorway.

I was able to get that weekend off, by the way.

Outstanding

McSorleys ain't quiet...maybe lovecraft would be better, especially if we could get downstairs.

Yeah we dont have to stay in our area. Lovecrafts could work

If you see a faded sign on the side of the road that reads: "15 miles to the GUARRRRRDDD SHHHAAAAACCKKK!" Guard shack baby.


By the way, thank those who recommended Duolingo. Amazing app! I'm just starting and I already grasp the der/die/das definitive article in German.

Der Mann und die Frau.

Das Kind trinkt das Wasser

How awesome is that?


Why did the man drink the woman-water?


It's a good start. You'll eventually need a good dictionary a well.

Dictionaries are so 20th Century. I have the Internet, that's all I need dictionary-wise

Yeah, all you need is an internet connection so you can look on Urban Dictionary. Then you're all good.


We have reprogrammed reality. Language is a virus, religion an operating system, and prayers are just so much f***ing spam. And dictionaries? Dictionaries are the redundant users manual you throw in a desk drawer after unpacking your shiny new computer. You ever read the dead tree computer manual? Didn't think so.

I just have learned about marriage of two of my friends (and fellow gamers) falling apart... Because of another friend and co-player in multiple games...


I was working on a final plate for class when my dog decided to start barking suddenly. I jumped. Now there's a big streak of Payne's grey across the plate.

BAD DOG.

Where in Jersey? My usual route down to the city is to take 81 S down into Pennsylvania, change over to 380 in Scranton, then hit 80 E into the New York area. Then, usually, a miracle happens, and I somehow make it to my destination within the city limits.

A fun day off. I needed it


I've got a lousy summer cold.

Where's my benefit?


Might be getting called in to work next weekend after all. I'll keep you posted.


Ok, so I posted this over 4 and a half hours ago in the Rules thread, but haven't even gotten cricket noises. Maybe someone here can answer this question. It would be greatly appreciated.

So what kind of attack is lassoing someone around the neck? Ranged touched? CMB vs CMD? I watched "War of the Arrows" again last night and when the Mongols attacked a village they captured a lot of people by throwing a lasso around their necks and them dragging them to a place where they tied them all together and march them back toward their territory as slaves.


Perhaps a ranged Combat Maneuver. Take the CMB, and replace the strength bonus with the dexterity bonus.


Hmm.. that would work.

According to the APG:

Lasso:
Lasso: This thrown weapon is a length of rope with a simple open knot on one end that allows you entangle a foe like you would using a net. The DC to cast a spell while entangled with a lasso is 10 + the spell level being cast. An entangled creature can slip free with a DC 15 Escape Artist check as a full-round action. The lasso has 2 hit points and AC 10. It requires a DC 23 Strength check to break it. On a successful hit, the lasso tightens; to use it again you must spend a standard action sliding the knot to enlarge the loop.

The CRB says this for net:

Net:
A net is used to entangle enemies. When you throw a net, you make a ranged touch attack against your target. A net's maximum range is 10 feet. If you hit, the target is entangled. An entangled creature takes a –2 penalty on attack rolls and a –4 penalty on Dexterity, can move at only half speed, and cannot charge or run. If you control the trailing rope by succeeding on an opposed Strength check while holding it, the entangled creature can move only within the limits that the rope allows. If the entangled creature attempts to cast a spell, it must make a concentration check with a DC of 15 + the spell's level or be unable to cast the spell.

An entangled creature can escape with a DC 20 Escape Artist check (a full-round action). The net has 5 hit points and can be burst with a DC 25 Strength check (also a full-round action). A net is useful only against creatures within one size category of you.

A net must be folded to be thrown effectively. The first time you throw your net in a fight, you make a normal ranged touch attack roll. After the net is unfolded, you take a –4 penalty on attack rolls with it. It takes 2 rounds for a proficient user to fold a net and twice that long for a nonproficient one to do so.

So, it seems it would be a ranged touch attack that entangles the enemy.

Freehold, be sure to let the better half know!


Does anyone use Fantasy Grounds?
I was thinking of getting it, but unless I hear good reviews, I can't justify paying $150 bucks for something I may only use once a week.
Also, if anyone knows, how does it compare to Roll 20, which I've used, and is free.

Breaking cinder blocks with my head. It's a rough job, but somebody's got to do it.

And I'm back!

Both back home, and back online.

(My PC had gotten the Keyboard drivers garbaged by an update, and nothing I could try to do would fix it. Or if it WOULD have fixed it, Windows wouldn't let me do it!) ;P

So, one fresh-complete-wipe-and-reinstall-later,... FINALLY back! :)

Hope everyone is doing well,

AND back to work now,... both real job, and finish loading stuff back onto the PC.
:P
