Wow, I dont sign in for a couple of days,... ;)

-(Silly Monkey Santa) :)

-Yeah, when I first read LotR, (WAY back in 7th grade?) I always thought that Aragorn was casting healing magic, using the leaves and his necklace/amulet?

-ALWAYS go for the jailbreaks!

-Man, those stories make me miss gaming with my old group. :/
(Even more than usual!) ;P

Happy Monday!
(Or at least as happy as it can be. Monday and all, you know) :P

A friend of mine tells this story about their very first D&D game in 7th grade. Four guys showed up with rangers named Aragorn.

Always reminds me of the color-code-name discussion in Reservoir Dogs.

It was actually our witch who has the hedge witch archetype. So she's KIND Of the healer...while I'm secondary. I just went unconscious before the party's newest member (a druid) healed me.

Ah, ok.

Not in the best of moods.

I auditioned for a play with the community theatre and got a chorus role. After this, I discovered our school's Homecoming is the date of one of the performances. Unless I can get my principal to let me out of chaperoning, I have to bow out of the play.

I haven't been able to do any theatre stuff in over a decade. I was really looking forward to this.

And PD stuff today already had me in a pretty sour temper.

sigh

This is what I get for trying to actually find a life outside of work.


So sorry, Scintillae.


Sorry to hear that Scin.

Me, I'm ready to be back in my bed. That and I keep wondering if we'll survive the last chapter...or if I will have to get another character?


Probably oughtta roll one up just in case.

Cal,

I should clarify the first bit since I'm currently house sitting along with dog sitting...and I'm getting REALLY tired of driving to my home to walk my own damn dogs because Mom can't...

But yeah I'll have a couple made up before too long. Just need to make some decisions...


That's a lot of hassle. Sorry you're having to deal with it.

Any ideas on another character?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Well it's part of the job. It would be easier, admittedly, if I didn't have to do it so damn far from my house.

I have a couple... First is another paladin, this time Assimar but I think that I'll take some racial feats along with focusing more on the marital aspect. As for what kind of assimar, I was thinking either angel kin or else agathion. (Mostly for stat bonuses.)

My second idea is for a Tiefling martial (either straight fighter or else Cavalier) with levels in Hellknight (Probably Order of the Nail.)

My third idea is an unknown race (maybe elf?) arcanist with oracle and levels also in mystic theurge.

That's pretty much what I got...

As the direct descendant of a line of teachers, I get it. As an IT guy, I really get it.

An aasimar paladin married to a tiefling might be interesting. :-)

WOOHOO!!

I hadn't actually PLANNED on either the Tielfling OR the Assimar having any kids...especially since we're in book 5 of Giantslayer...so...

Also I'm really, REALLY done with traveling back and forth to my home right now. Thursday can't get here quick enough.

I actually have an aasimar character descended from a family with a tiefling streak. Mostly due to her being born on Ysgard. Aasimar barbarian goooooooooo!

Shadow Lodge

And speaking of barbarians, 5e group met for the first time tonight and did our session zero.

Our lineup is:

Half-Elf Sorcerer (wild mage)
Halfling Rogue (performer)
Warforged Fighter
Changeling Cleric (deity unknown, even to the player and character)
Half-Orc Monk (drunken master)
Dwarf Barbarian (path of the zealot; guild merchant/accountant/collections officer/kneebreaker) [yours truly =D]


Looks like a fun lot!

My character's name is Orden Vivantmantle d'Kundarak, he's a gentleman's dwarf when it comes to the mercantile business, a faithful devotee of Kol Karran (Eberron's god of trade and commerce), and probably the only member of the party likely to show up in a suit. (Which 5e barbarian literally lets me do, they get bonuses to AC when fighting without armor.)

Brainstormed a bit on the way home with Scint. We named his heavy mace "Tact" and his shield "Patience", and if those fail, he falls back on his battleaxe, "Second Opinion".


That's awesome...lol

Getting through it, desk is pretty quiet.


Last workday before kids have to be here. Lots of printing and copying.


Some schools here in Arkansas started back yesterday, some today.


All the schools started on Monday here in Alabama. They had active shooter drills at Macadory High School last Friday. That is just a couple miles down the road. We live in interesting times.


It's a terrible thing that these are the first things some of those kids will recall about the first day of school. It truly breaks my heart.


I got more bruises that usual at HEMA tonight, which was entirely my own fault.

Think of them as checkmarks on the things you need to improve.

Would you say they were... HEMAtomas?


I'm very happy it's Thursday. Wednesday was long but it's over now. My own bed and LESS driving back and forth between home and my client's back wood residence.

My assimar's heritage comes from the fact her family is kind of the black stain on the side of the Taldoran Darahan family since they're a) mostly Sarenites. and b) more than few have celestial blood in them.

Of course my paladin is Iomedaen...so...

There’s not many problems that can’t be solved by a jaunty song and a big old Monkey Santa hug.

Annnnnd another debeverage,....


Glad you get to do your show Scint,

I myself am also in another show, My daughter asked me to, once again, audition to be in a show with her that she loves at one of the small outlying community theaters. (EDIT- Same place we did our last Dad/Daughter musical show together, "Tuck Everlasting")

The show is Matilda, the Musical. (Of course) ;P
Of course, SHE has yet to make a single rehearsal as yet, because SHE has spent the entire summer working the best summer job ever. Space Camp in Huntsville. ;P

I am driving to go and get her tomorrow, (The only reason she agreed to finally come home this weekend is that College starts back NEXT week, otherwise she'd stay and keep working there. SPace Camp Nerds for ever!)
:)


ANNNND my AC finally died for reals last night I think.
:(

It's been giving me issues, but when I turn it off and give it a rest it comes back on. Last night it stopped working, I gave it a rest, and tried to turn it on again this morning,.... No dice.
O_O

Of course I have spent the LAST 3 days trying to get a freelance AC repairman out to my house (The only guy in town so far I've found that I trust) but he cant make it until after he gets home from his real job, and the heat has been killing everyones AC, and yesterday it rained, and water and electricity dont mix,...

Yeah. He promised that he would for sure make it out today. I'm hoping/praying that it is still something that can be FIXED, and that I won't need to buy a new outside unit.
>_<

Well, on the bright side, kid started back to High School today, so he wont be home to get hot and complain about it not working.

Until he gets home of course, THEN the whining will start.
;P


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I too hope you won't need a new outside unit. Mostly because while it's not been a terrible August (mostly), I'd hate for anyone to suffer through what I consider the worst part of summer.

Also happy me to sleeping in AND being in my own bed doing it.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

Being in one's own bed is priceless.


It is indeed.


sigh...sleep has been at best sporadic lately, and when it does come I sleep until nearly noon each day. Tonight I thought for sure I could get to bed early and fall asleep. But no, ideas for upcoming games began pouring into my brain so now I'm up jotting them down in my notebook. Which is fine, really. I've been sort of stuck the last week or so. I have little control over when the ideas strike, I guess. I'll enjoy them while they keep comin'!

Guess who overslept and didn't have their alarm go off, and thus missed the clock lock at work and thus can't go in until 10:30?

This guy~

Clock lock? Granted, I've been out of the workforce for a dozen years now but this is something I've never heard of.
