What is this House of Spite?


I'm assuming it's where Lord Foul hangs out when he doesn't want any kids in his creche.

Man, don't you hate it when you get kids in your creche? It takes forever to get the gooey bits out.

Anyone planning to go to PaizoCon this year?

I am!


I walked, according to a friend’s podometer/watch/Fitbit? Is that the word? I walked well over five thousand steps in below-freezing temperatures with my shoes, socks, and the lower parts of my pant legs soaked entirely through.

I have had better days.

Not I. Cons aren't my thing, too many people, even if I could afford to go. It being on the other side of the country from me only increases the expense.

Nope, though we are going to the west coast this summer.

I've walked 500 miles and I walked 500 more...and the dogs STILL wanted to go out again 3 hours later. :p


Seattle is on my list of cities I want to visit, but it's not even in the top 20, so if I were to drive that far...well, I'd hit Canada first, honestly, now that I live in Ohio instead of Florida.


Nope. They make Paizocon on the wrong side of the planet.

I'd love to, but cost, distance, and flying keeps me from it.

Brick mites, a city destroying pest that is almost harmless.

It is nice to be working on two batteries for a change. I guess I am a cyborg, my doctor tried to impress by calling me a cyborg.


Right now if I had the money...and my brother and sister-in-law were still planning on living in Salt Lake City (which they aren't sadly) I'd probably make an effort to go see them there and THEN go to PazioCon some time.

But since they're going back to Lander, Wyoming (probably), I'll think I'll stick to pipe dreams.

Salt Lake City?
Been there ONCE. Trip with my daughter to Sundance Film Festival, she is in a documentary 'The Mars Generation' (on Netflix, Proud Dad bragging rights) and it debuted there 2 years ago. In January.

I LIKE snow,. Really. I was raised in Oklahoma, We actually have four seasons.
But it was friggin COLD. :P

I had fun, But I'd rather go to Paizocon! :)


Good morning, everyone. I'd like to go to Paizocon sometime. But, as long as I have this tumor, I don't think I should fly.

There's always the rolling Jerry Springer extravaganza of taking the bus.

Sadly, we're not due any snow, just falling temperatures. PaizoCon is May 24-27.

I’m going, and i’m even running games.


That sounds awesome!


I took myself off Hydrocodone in May of last year. Not because it didn't help my pain or I was addicted to it but I couldn't afford the monthly drug testing fee the government says those of us who need it have to take. But my pain has reached new levels of wonderfulness and I've asked to be put back on them. I'm waiting right now to hear from my insurance carrier if they'll let me.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Rag,

The only reason I'd like to go is because I've honestly never been to that part of the US. I've been to some of the Western states (California, Nevada, a little of New Mexico) So I'd like to go...plus it would give me an excuse to get up to Seattle and stuff.

The only Con I'm going to is about an hour south of me around May.

Also having ridden a greyhound bus all the way to Witchia Kansas (long story that kind of painful), I can safely say, I WILL NOT be doing long bus rides unless I have to...


I rode a bus from St. Louis to Denver and back. Ugh.

That sounds like the beginning of the most depressing 70s folk ballad ever. Sung by someone who really wishes he were Kris Kristoffersen, but he's not. It goes on for 27 minutes and at the end it turns out that the narrator's been dead the whole time and no one else on the bus noticed. And then the bus turns back around and heads to Denver one more time...

I really need to get my imagination checked. It has not been cheery lately...

Maybe not real cheery, but still a gold mine.

Most excellent!

I am planning to register to run three games... None are Pathfinder/Starfinder, although one is Pathfnder-adjacent...

A Dungeon World adventure, set in Golarion, using DW-conversions of Ezren, Valeros, Kyra, Merisiel, and Harsk.

A Sprit of '77 adventure: "BEAST-Bound and Down". "Breaker One-Nine! Breaker One-Nine! I got the hammer down on Eye-Eight-Oh and Smokey's on my tail!" The PCs are barreling down the Interstate in a stolen semi with a trailer of ice-cold beer and... something else. Want to join our convoy?

A Swords of the Serpentine demo game—one of the playtest adventures. By May, the playtest will be over, but the final game won't be out yet.

I'm also thinking of running a pre- or post-con session of the Lamentations of the Flame Princess module "Blood in the Chocolate"... which is a demented NSFW parody of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. (Oompa loompa doompity—Die!)


Still not ready to do long bus rides again.

I might do flying if only because while I'm not fond of it, I don't see as much problems as being stuck on a bus was/is.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Today I debut my post-reading-the-book-of-the-damned character. Very excited. I keep humming "I Know Things Now" from Into the Woods...


Ugh, buses.
WHY would I ever subject myself to riding on a bus to a destination, that takes me TWICE (if not more) as long as it would take me to drive myself?!?!?

Yeah,... can you tell I've done the 'long bus trip,... ONCE' ? ;)

I like flying, if only because whatever troubles they might cause you, it is usually NOTHING compared to a long bus trip.
(someday I'll type out the long, gory details of trying to get us back home from the film festival. THAT was another entire adventure in itself!)
:)

I like conventions, but they take the two things I am usually the shortest of,...
Time. Money.
;P

IF I could go, I would for sure sign up for any/all of the above listed scenarios! :)


Rag,

I didn't have a driver's license at the time I had to use the bus. Otherwise I might have... but probably better I took a bus anyway. In the sense it taught me something.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

You're crazy for taking the bus!

That is a valid reason.

I HAVE had long bus trips I did enjoy.

But that was WAY back in middle and High school, when I would take bus trips with my classmates or church group for various reasons. THOSE were fun.
;)

I just loathe flying.

The second time I moved to Arizona I went by bus and it was lovely. Wiled the time away on my laptop and played games, napped, listened to music, and just generally had a pleasant time the whole trip.

Sorry to hear your experience was less comfortable.

Heh, heh, heh...

It went over perfectly. For the first part of the session, I did all my usual roguish stuff (I had been a telekineticist/rogue). Then the barbarian got trapped in a weird endless hallway prison that only teleportation magic could escape from. I dimensionally hopped in (per the Travel domain ability). Weird, everyone thought. But my guy does weird stuff all the time... could just be a different kinetic ability...

On we went. Nobody noticed I wasn't doing UMD checks on the cure wand any more... and then we came across a bebilith. I produced my unholy symbol of Barbatos, cast dismissal, (the first time I'd cast a spell) he failed the save, and that was that.

There was a moment of stunned silence as everyone put it together.

"WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO?!"

"I... learned things in the past month. Shall we continue?"

Night school.

Heh. Desouled.

It's funny because they want to figure out how I did it and, for once, I'm not sharing any of the mechanical details. They've figured out I'm at least a high enough level cleric now to cast dismissal, but I keep disabling traps and unlocking stuff just as well as I did before... and they know I'm even more persnickity about the rules than the GM, so what I'm doing has to be legal... yet... how?

Muhahaha.

Brilliant.

Nice.
I like doing things like that to my fellow players at the game table. It's fun! :)

Because Quibble won't reveal the mechanics behind this character just makes me want to see them more!

Well first you have to sign this NDA... don't bother reading it, it's just boilerplate...


I'm guessing he read the book of the damned.

He held out as long as he could!

Which, as it turns out, wasn't very long at all.

It's like I told my first grade teacher: Nothing but trouble comes from learning to read.

I'm really grateful for the group I have now, because they're all cool with that kind of thing. We all trust each other, so no one lunges across the table and grabs a character sheet or demands a rules audit. They know I'll eventually come clean, and waiting for the reveal will be worth it--or figuring it out before hand will be worth it and a fun challenge.


I think it's time for this old man to turn in. Goodnight, kids. Play nice.

Night Cal!

Yeah Quibble, I once played a Wizard (Fantasy HERO system) who was also a werewolf. Had the curse Pretty much under control. But My DM gave me that little addition to the character, Because he knew I would run with it. And then he told me to keep it a secret. So the looks on my friends faces the first time my PC transformed in front of them was SO worth it!

Huh, Fun fact, that PC was my 'All-time favorite Wizard' to date,.....

aka= Ragadolf.
