That's one of the best!

And the whole song is about traveling to the past to kick some viking asses xD

Oh please! Everyone knows the answer to the question of "who are best, pirates or ninjas?" is vikings. Because they were pirates who turned up on your shores like ninjas.


And yes, if some of the more colourful stories are true, some of them may even have fought in the nude.

Edit: Wow, those were some annoying typos.


Their covers are pretty good indeed.

My favorites are probably "Wenches and Mead", "Drink" and "Keelhauled".

"F@**ed by an anchor" might be in the list when I assimilate it a bit better. Dal and I couldn't stop laughing when we heard it the first time because one of the NPCs from S&S says "f*ck" like 3 times per second so we inmediately imagined her singing this song. It's probably a reflection of myself using a lot of curse words in real life. I usually avoid using them while GMing but in S&S I set myself free and created a lot of NPCs that used curse words.

Kileanna the character is kinda the opposite. If you ask her to use curse words she'd probably recite the verbal component of a Bestow Curse spell.

Are you talking about vikings or about my S&S party?

I'm writing a new chapter right now and for some reason it seems to focus in explaining how the captain spent half of her time nude xD

They also tended to be kinda... explicit in public. At the beginning of the adventure they shared a room with the rest of the crew and there was no room for privacy. They didn't care, they were pirates dammit!

It was mostly my doing, as I wanted to reflect that pirates didn't care at all about established morality. We were playing RoW at the same time and everybody was very serious and uptight, so it was a fun contrast to do.

Dal's parents have given us some Padrón peppers so I'm doing them today with a couple of big beef steaks (also given by them).

This peppers are delicious. They are famous for being very tricky: one of them are almost sweet, others are slightly spicy and some of them are hot as hell. There is even a rhyme about them (lost in translation) which says "The peppers from Padrón, ones are spicy, others are not".

I hope it is true this time. The last time I got some of them none were spicy.


Im glad you provided link otherwise I would of had no idea and now I wanna try them. With steaks especially.


They are great. I would compare them with italian green peppers even if they are much smaller. But with the addition of somw of them being very spicy. I wouldn't compare their taste to chili peppers or jalapeños though. They are kinda different.
The traditional recipe is deep frying them and then adding salt, but I get good results stirring them.
I'm doing a very basic recipe today, with beef with just salt, no pepper, no spices, so I don't mask the basic flavors. When the ingredients are good, why masking them?


What is a dry fry?


Dry fry? No clue what you are talking about.

Btw: the results. Olive oil, peppers, salt... easy and delicious !


Was that a typo that you changed or Did I Read it wrong?


I swear this time I didn't edit anything!
Unless I have started to do unconscious editing...

Looks pepperilcious.
Really want to taste them, especially if they taste slightly different each times as you described.


There's a such thing as a "dry rub"

brushes sandstone out of fur.

But it's not as fun as it sounds.


I heard about an air frier. The basics were that it used hot air instead of oil. I don't know how it works.

I use very little quantity of oil for everything but deep frying. I don't like oily food.

That's the fun of eating them!

They are very popular in Galicia and people who tastes them for the first time usually finds them surprising.

This time all of them had a slightly spicy taste, about 50% were kinda spicy and a couple of them were actually hot. None of them was enough to make me shed tears, though. As I cook them with almost no oil the spicy point is enhanced as fats remove part of the spicy flavor.

Unfortunately I don't really think, I can get my hands on some up here easily, but I'll keep my eyes out for them.

Oh I forgot to greet everyone; Hello everyone, how has the day treated you thus far?

Me? I doing okay, I have a sore lower back, but other then that I'm mostly okay.


I'm doing alright, so far. :)


The original ones are only grown in a town called Padrón and near places, so they can only be found at determinate times of the year in a small quantity. There are similar peppers that are grown in Morocco and can be easier to get (called also peppers from Padrón) but they are disappointing. The spicy quality depends a lot on the weather and moisture of the land so they are not spicy at all even if they look mostly the same.

They are probably sold on the internet but I don't think that aside from that they would be easy to find out of Spain.

I hope your pain in the ass disappears soon, Kjeldorn ;-D

I've had a good day until now. As I've already got paid I was able to get rid of all my white hair finally! I was starting to look like a granny!!!


I've got the exact same problem.
Got my hair cut before, I went to my parents house last weekend, and in every tuft of hair there where something like 20-30 gray hairs. But at least in my case, I can claim that the greying streaks makes me look sophisticated (or just plain old) ^^.


Be happy. I started losing my hair at twenty-four. We're pretty slow to go gray, so I have a few at my temples plus some chest-hairs....


Hope you've at least been spare the dreaded bald-spot.
It runs in my family, but it looks like my father, brother and me might be the ones, to break that particular curse ^^.

Passed along by genes you get from your mother as I understand. I have hair on the sides, nothing on top, it receded clear back; think of Patrick Stewart in his days say of STNG, that's about right except not quite as far down the sides. Plus a few hairs up front that just won't say die!

Then you look sophisticated!

Edit: Might consider getting a flat cap if you wanna go full distinguished oldie (I'm ashamed to admit that I actually own one, then again, I also own a felt cowboy hat, I wear during summer time ^^).


I think grey hair in men is very attractive. In my family we tend to grow grey hair at a young age. I dye my hair since I was 17 and got my first white streak at 13 (it wasn't in a visible place though).
But nobody is bald at least. My grandfather died at 95 years with a still fairly thick white mane.
And I have a lot of hair. Most of it on the bottom of my bath tube.


Between myself, my wife, and two kids, the shortest hair we have is the youngest at shoulder length.


Too late for distinguished, too young for oldie :) I'll wear a hat to keep my dome from burning in the summer. Haven't seen many hats I like though. Keep thinking to go shopping for one, maybe in the fall at the Rennfest?

Did you used common salt or... er... I don't know the proper translation for "sal gorda" (fat salt?)

Anyway, nice result!


Sal gorda... I don't know the translation either!!!

*googles*

Google translator says coarse salt. I'll trust it for once.

Where are you from, William?

I guess your native language is Spanish too?


Sal Gorda sounds like a great name for an Investigator for Strange Aeons.

Thanks!


Gorda means fat (in feminine). I think you should know xD

So a Slayer then, and he can have the bullied trait.

Arrghhh...I caved.

Just went on a hour long walk.
Went swimming for about an hours time.
And only took a hour and a half long nap.
I feel fresh, clean and well-rested.

Looks like you had fun. Being tired after exercising is satisfying!

Today I walked like 20 km in all day and I am now comfortably lying on my bed. This is paradise!

I don't think my campaign journal is serious anymore... Aliases have gone insane xD

Well, you DO seem to be the one who wants to have more aliases than Captain Yesterday....

Good luck with that.

I have big, big plans.

I don't try to match him, he's the boss on that. I am just a humble admirer xD

But it was fun creating some aliases so the characters of the campaign made their own remarks and reflect their personalities. I forgot they were pirates and they would want to take control xD

Edit: Insomnia...

Oh I don't know if it's anything to be proud of. Just something I started doing to blow off stress from a rough point in my life.

I'm still not sure how I got over four hundred, I suspect some of them might be alcohol related.

I only have seven or eight, but I made them so no one else would grab them first because I'm a selfish get.


I just make ones for moods or for comedic value.

That's a good reason.

The official characters that I have registered aren't probably not of much interest to anybody but me, as they are mostly obscure characters that I brought for some story and somehow they stuck there.

Mohrlex, Sylvyana or Marianna fall into that category, and are more my version of them rather than an attempt on the official ones.

Then the main NPCs from Skull and Shackles plus the PCs from the players that aren't on the forum (at least my version of them) were created to make their own remarks on the campaign journal to make a complement to the story. I have fun doing it.

Then there is the horde of NPCs and PCs from old stories that I had fun playing and I like to give them a voice just for fun.

Then some of them which are some sort of jokes born in the messageboards, as Derailer of Threads, Pinecone Girl or Kileanna's inner Pirate (and Gyarados!).

And then, this one. It was done as an anagram of my real name and it's probably the one that better depicts my real self xD
