I had to Google that. It's a cheese?

Yes

*sigh*

*note to self: if I ever end in USA, don't waste time hoping to get a half-decent cheese*

We do have good cheeses, they are just difficult to find.

My mother thought that I would be awed by space ships zooming around and lasers. Because I was 3 in 1977. What she didn't bank on was me being able to quote the movie nearly verbatim after one showing...then taking me again...and then pawning me off on someone else to take me again...and again...and again...

What I find great right now is my cousin's son is about 4. He can give me the back story on any character I pull out of any of the 10 movies, plus Rebels, plus Clone Wars, plus the latest series, plus a few from other sources he couldn't possibly have access to. And it doesn't matter if the character only shows up in one scene. He knows it.

Sounds like a certain Baron I know.

Just realized it's 11 movies when I typed 10. I think I forgot Solo in that original counting.

Buuuut,
Can he do the same for the now-no-longer-canon EXPANDED universe?
:D

Some of the bigger characters from those novels, yes. Corran Horn, Mara Jade, other characters on that level.

Anasathiel, a friendly and helpful angel that brings the gift of truth to the mortals.

I really like this. I just have one question, though. Doesn't a mile radius around the creature seem a bit strong for CR 3? Admittedly, I know nothing about monster creation, so maybe it doesn't. I dunno!

If he knows Corran Horn, then that's a yes. :)

It's basically a story effect, not a combat ability. If it extended to few dozen feet, like typical monster aura, it would lack the impact it is supposed to have — having the community visited by Anasathiel be affected by it.


Gotcha!


Mid-week check-in! How are things going so far this week?

Glitter is the herpes of theater. There is SO much glitter in the cracks of my stage, I think it might be the only thing holding the old building together.

Thank you for the new monster idea.

If I was writing a screenplay/adapting that Agatha Christie story today, I'd let the ladies have actual Old Lace.

The Baron definitely can. His knowledge is considerable, and he was called upon for his knowledge professionally before. He also made a few races for the setting.

I have a pic of some people cosplaying those characters that never were. I have mixed feelings towards those characters.

Lately I've become strangely excited when I've redone and improved the various sheets we still use at work. Oddly satisfying to make things more efficient.

The existence of a history nerd who loves to read fantasy is a sad one. One day, I will find a female-led fantasy wherein they describe their outfits without declaring corsetry a deathtrap.

Yeah, but the Janitor from the other garage came over and opened the room. So, all's good, for now.

But how else are we to know what Lady Strand-Tuckington is wearing as she tucks a strand of hair behind her ear and considers her next bold move?

I’ll show myself out.

Oh, I don't have a problem with corsets. I have a problem with "corsets are literally death!" Everything I've found about historical corsets suggests that they're actually more comfortable and supportive than bras for busty girls if properly fitted and that the idea of corsets as here to crush lungs and take names comes from extant advertisements - the same way we'd look at most modern models wearing something impossible for the average consumer.

Oh, I got that. I was just riffing on lazy cliches writers use that perpetuate nonsense.

(Confession - I did once write a novel in which one of the characters was attacked by a killer farthingale. HOWEVER, she was not wearing it at the time. And its lethality wasn't a function of being worn so much as being animated by evil forces within a horror mist. So there's that.)

Men (particularly men who'd let themselves go a bit but who still wanted to look Dashing on the ballroom floor) wore corsets too, in them days.

As of this month, we're as far from the release of They Might Be Giants' album "Flood" as "Flood" was from Bo Diddley's "Have Guitar Will Travel".
