Hmm...I've never looked at that closely. I know that a lot of really terrific creatures didn't make the transition to PF because of the intellectual property thing. I have some fan-created versions of many of them, though, so that's good.

This seems appropriate.

I like that. It goes on the list.

Welp, it's Sunday. That means it's time for Monkey Santa Football Advice.

I know very little about football rules, or most any other sport, for that matter, but I believe he's onto something there.

He’s so wise. It’s the beard.

Monkey Santa's right. Football is 90% mental and the other half is physical.

Even Napoleon had his Watergate.


Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine is ending with a boom; there are severe storms forecast overnight. I'm not afraid of storms but I'm no fool, either. I'll be up awhile keeping an eye on things. Mostly for my own peace of mind, but there are a few people who sort of depend on me to wake them in case things get bad.


Hi, everyone.


Hey, John. How are ya?

Tired, as usual.


Hi,
Sigh,
Typical glorious Lousy-Anna Monday here folks.
(Meaning it will rain ALL dang day, more or less, while not cooling it off enough to prevent the inevitable Sauna-effect afterwords.)

But its hould be at least a little cooler the following day or so according to ye olde weather appe.

Not cool enough for coats, but jacket might be nice, depending.


My relief is here. Clocking out. Have a good day, everyone.


Have a great afternoon, John!

I, for one, would like my meteorology forecasts delivered by a Ye Olde Weather Ape.

So I just myself house ruled. I was told as long as I'm a player, I cannot play ANY full spellcasters. At least that's what our current GM is saying. I can play half casters, but apparently the fact I use my arcane and sometimes divine powers for things like planar travel while the rest of the group goes and sells stuff is considered...ill-advised.

Also, I'm looking forward to the major holidays after Halloween because I'll have extra dog duties as my brother will be here for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. So that means Conwy will be joining us. Which I think is great. :)

That,... would work too.

Can't be any LESS accurate than who we have delivering the forecast NOW!
;P

From tonight's Strange Aeons campaign:

"Man, this estate is decorated really weirdly. What's the Lovecraftian version of feng shui?"
"F#*@ed shui."
"Oh yeah..."
"Why is all your furniture sickly yellow and arranged at impossible non-Euclidean angles?"
"Oh, that's just for f+*#ed shui."
"Classy!"

EDIT: Have I mentioned how much I'm loving this AP? It is a lot.

Got some quotes from my D&D club's first outing:

"So he's just sitting in the corner being grumpy?"
"He is a nice man! He's lawful good!"
"Oh, great. A cop."
"HE IS NOT A COP."

"I am going to befriend the wolf and ride it places."
"Eldritch blast."
"NO!"

"Hey, we were hired to look into the missing kids."
"Ah, good! We're really worried."
"So do you, like, have any idea where they might be stored?"
"Stored? Dude, what the heck?"

I really wish *I* was running Strange Aeons...

It is pretty awesome. I'm really getting to unleash some creativity, both with their backgrounds and with augmenting all the descriptions and paranoias. For instance, I've been adding items to rooms (creepy dolls, origami aberrations, that kind of thing), and then later those things are gone. Or elsewhere. No plot connection, no sell value... just odd little items that appear and disappear in the room descriptions...

And the PC backgrounds have been a lot of fun too. Two of the players asked for a complete blank slate, so I made their characters for them. The rebirth psychic's ability to make knowledge checks untrained, I'm skinning as memories of past lives. So every time he makes a knowledge check, there's a weird little mini-story that tells him HOW he knows that fact.

The other character I created as a shabti. He's doubly cursed with amnesia. On the one hand, he has the campaign amnesia that everyone else has. On the other hand, he was created as an after-life stand-in/whipping boy to take the punishment for a very bad pharaoh. So even his "memories" aren't really his own. And he's going to discover that he was called to this plane by Count Lowls as an extravagant conversation piece. "Oh him? He's my pet shabti. Called him from the depths of Osiriani hell, don't you know..."


Wow.

"Strange" Aeons really living up to the name is it?!? ;P

Cool,...


6 people marked this as a favorite.

Oh it really is.

I also had the PCs discover a bunch of manuscripts of a play that some cultists were doing a read-through of.

Spoiler:
The first book of the AP takes place entirely in Briarstone Asylum, where the PCs wake up with amnesia. The play the Hastur cultists were performing, in the second book, was called "Four Fools in Thornrock" about a group of four amnesiacs who woke up in an asylum...

Oh my, nice touch!

As a theater-person, I REALLY appreciate that little tidbit.

Sometime after 10 pm last night someone stole the hanging handicapped parking placard from inside my vehicle. I'm really disgruntled, to say the least.

Wow. That is just the most f!@&ed-upedly douchey thing I’ve heard somebody do in a long time.

That is a new low in *sshole-ry. That's the kind of thing where'd I wish: "Oh, you stole a handicapped parking placard? Alright. Karma now nudges reality so that you will very shortly need one of your very own. Enjoy."


It really is. I can get it replaced, I think for free, but it's the whole principle. I had to go run some errands this morning and believe me, I could have used it given the distances I had to walk at times from the parking lot to the store. My knee and back are ringing bells right now.

If it was happy, Christmas bells maybe that wouldnt be so bad? :)

I'm betting you were referring to the loud, obnoxiously out-of-tune alarm bells though?
;P

Sorry for the difficulties. My father-in-law uses a handicapped plate because he needs it as well.

I agree with Quibble and Ambrosia, Stealing the handicapped placard is just a new high in lows. I feel confident that God/Karma/Whatever you believe in/all of the above, will soon be bringing that little cycle of justice full circle.
:)

Hope your week (and Knee and back) gets better!
:D

Does your state have handicap licenses? If so, are you eligible.

Some states have vehicle licenses that have the handicap symbol right on the license

Just be aware of extra costs that could be involved in that over the mirror placard.


Thanks, everyone! The mirror placard won't cost anything to replace. I already checked. As far as a handicapped license plate goes I don't have a working vehicle of my own. I sometimes refer to this one as mine, but it's my son's and I don't think I could get a plate for a vehicle that's not mine. I'll look into it, though.

That really sucks, dude. Makes you wish more cars had the security cameras like the Teslas. Would be so nice to see that s+$&head get caught.

Glad you could get the replacement easily!

Hiya DQ!


It's a beautiful October evening here on Martin Street. How is everyone doing tonight?

Good! Got a new puppy yesterday. I wasn't planning to yet, not so soon after the Dowager Doggess died, but a series of coincidences clicked together and it seemed like the right thing to do.

She is a six-month old Aussie Shepherd. She alternates between deep sleep and light-speed shenanigans. She's very sweet and pretty submissive, so she hasn't been much trouble at all. She's adapting to her new home impressively quickly too.

She hasn't met Monkey Santa yet though...

Shadow Lodge

What's her name?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Piper. It was the name the rescue group gave her and she seems to answer well to it. It fits. Not sure if it was intended as a Fallout 4 reference, but she definitely has an "Ooo! What's that?" curiosity.

Bless you, for taking in a rescue pup.

It’s the only way to roll. Both of my previous dogs were rescues—tho I admit, I did tell people the husky-shepherd mutt was a “purebred Luxembourg Pony Hound.” Even got a cardiologist at the local university vet school to google that. There’s more to social interaction than plausible but unnecessary lies... but damned if I know what.

I have no idea how this girl wound up getting dropped off at a shelter. She’s beautiful, sweet tempered, has no behavioral problems... some poor dumb bastard out there is gonna miss out on having a fantastic dog.

Both of mine are rescues. One was supposed to be a foster, but when it came time to let him go I just couldn't do it.

Yeah... that’s why even tho it’s a good thing to do... I don’t foster ;-) I’ve run the simulations. I end up with All the Dogs.

I really am impressed by people who run rescue groups. That is a level of good I admire.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm in touch with a few rescue groups here in Arkansas. The level of compassion they show makes me pretty verklempt sometimes.

I'm playing a Gold Dragonborn Celestial-path Warlock for my 5e group's Halloween one-shot next Tuesday. Healing spells and CLEANSING FIRE!

... how's that?
