Armadillos? Hey it gets my vote.

Goddess at this time she doesn't care anymore its her way of being clever. What makes me nuts though is when my wife would call in the middle of doing something and want to chat. It gets hard because I am the GM. And she gets pissed when I say I have to go. In combat I read her numbers and she gets bored. Now we play at my house again and she just sits in the other room minding her own buissness not caring what I am doing.

GoddessGood

Haha, my b/f will do this occasionally, only we game at our place. So he'll just wander in and complete distract the whole game for 10 to 15 minutes with chat about some video game or other. Even after I get him to leave, the mood is generally broken for a good half hour. Then I'll get them back into the story and he'll come back out again :mmph:

Oh good lord. I just looked at my profile and that pic is almost a year old. The cat on my arm is now 12 pounds and 4 times that size. I have to hold him with both arms.

Savage Worlds is going good. I don't really have any gripes with the system thus far (which is strange for me), except perhaps that I miss stunting from Exalted. I'll still describe my actions with flair, but more often than not it gives me penalties to attacks rather than bonuses for doing cool stuff. The game itself is interesting. I think it's a module (not sure), and I've never really played through one. Webhead is doing a great job of it, for sure :)

Kaewin
04-09-2009, 10:21 AM
What is the game about? I have seen references to it before but as a stay at home dad its hard to try new things out of my established patters. I still have a copy of Shadow Run, Serernity and Gurps Powers sitting on a shelf

GoddessGood
04-09-2009, 10:30 AM
Savage Worlds is actually the system and Sundered Skies is the setting we play in. The system has a lot of similarities to the Serenity system but, IMO, it's more elegant.

You have attribute and skill ranks (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12) and if you don't have a skill you need you roll a d4 -2.
Combat is a roll of your Fighting or Shooting skill die and you have to beat the target's Parry score (a static number based on their Fighting rank). If you do, you roll damage against the target's Toughness (a static number based on their Vigor Attribute rank). If you beat that, it causes a wound. You get three wounds and then you're out.
If you beat their Toughness by more than 4, it's called a raise and you cause an extra wound. In general, beating the target number by four or more is a raise and you get extra benefits for doing that.
If you roll the highest number on your die, you get to roll again and add the result. So if I rolled a d8 and got an 8, I could roll again and get more than 8.

It's definitely worth a look, and the books are available online. I'd suggest the Savage World's Explorer's Edition and one of the Setting Books. If you get the Player's Guide from Sundered Skies, it's actually just the setting book without the adventure modules from the back. I don't know if that's true of the other setting books, though.

I has four desktops, GIMP, XMMS (Audio player), Open Office (3 documents) kuickshow (Graphic viewer), Thunderbird and Firefox running right now. That is the programs that have a visible output. This is a light load for this machine. Last night I have some 12 documents open in Open Office.

More common than you think. Those with it do not tend to inhabit or patronized calls centers or get into the news.

I find it common that people that work help desk think poorly of other people. But they work all day talking to people that don't get it. The people that do get it are not calling the call center again and again.

Add to that call centers do not exactly hire the cream of the crop either. So if you have a brain, the call center did not hire you for it. They hired your ears and voice, and ability to respond with a script. Pavlov's dog could work a call center.

So common sense is out there, it doesn't tend to make itself known.

HELLO? I never said it was a call center or a help desk, this was a Masters required position, dealing with a large transfer of funds. The guy wasnt listening and then got defensive when called on it. He only started backtracking when i refused to speak to his supervisor right then, when i told him ill be calling his supervisor and therefore dont need him to transfer me to his buddy.

Update: spoke with his supervisor and the supervisor promised he'd go through the phone records... yep they record those and will be getting back to me tomorrow am. The way i see it, he deserved to lose his job. In the end, i get my answer, and the company makes $85,000. Win/win.

Another thing: only someone lacking common sense would think common sense is common... and you know what they say about people that assume? You really need to read things more clearly before commenting. Once again...foot in mouth.

It has been said that if Businesses were a person they would be clinically psychotic and in need of confinement for public safety. Considering how many times I haver seen a business mouth the customer first mantra and then proceed to prove that "customer first" means off the cliff first. I believe this.

You should have your friend make the D&D game start at level 21, so it will feel more like exalted. I know nothing about exalted except for what you say in your profile and in your posts, but I think epic level play of D&D in 4e accomplishes what you are looking for. Especially if you use some of the epic destinies in the dragon magazines. Maybe I am talking out of my bum, but you never know.

I had this oddball dream last night. I took my boyfriend home to visit my family for my sister's graduation (which isn't happening for another month yet). When we woke up the morning of to drive her there, all the cars had been vandalized. Parts were missing from all our cars like windshields, wheels, axels, engines, bumpers, etc. My mother's station wagon had had the entire chassis removed and my car's trunk had been shorn off clean. No car had the same parts removed and all were sitting in the driveway just as we'd left them. All of them are older cars (1993 to 2005) and someone said that the economy was to blame, and someone else said, no it's the republican's fault. I was trying to calculate how much it would cost me to fix my car or whether I should just report it stolen when I woke up.

Parts were missing from all our cars like windshields, wheels, axels, engines, bumpers, etc. My mother's station wagon had had the entire chassis removed and my car's trunk had been shorn off clean. No car had the same parts removed and all were sitting in the driveway just as we'd left them. All of them are older cars (1993 to 2005) and someone said that the economy was to blame, and someone else said, no it's the republican's fault. I was trying to calculate how much it would cost me to fix my car or whether I should just report it stolen when I woke up.


I thought you were going to say someone took all the parts and made a brand new car out of them.

I'd do it...Then I'd sell it to the highest bidder as the only non-public means of getting back to their house. :D

Mostly I was perturbed because there was no way the disassembly could have taken place in our driveway (four cars= packed driveway) so they would have had to haul them into the street. Yet no one had called the cops or even heard any noise. Then the cars had been put back where they were before (sometimes up on blocks) as if we wouldn't notice. The nerve of my dream criminals is astonishing.

And maybe you were always born to be in a life of crime. This is your dreams trying to tell you it's not too late. Start stealing and pawning off car radios.

Steal from pretty much everybody and keep it to yourself!

Robin Hood would be proud....kinda...of your abilities maybe? Probably not so much the ethics. But no Honor Among Theives would provide a good enough motto...maybe...


Anyway you should start with something easy, like slim jims from your local 24/7 store. And practise magic tricks a lot since they help you hide things in your sleeves and in the palm of your hand. Also they work well enough as a distraction when you get caught. :D

"So, how does it feel to be a rocket scientist?" (To quote one of the Robocop films.)

It seems the Somali pirates are attempting the same tactic. They will Kill Americans and French, leaving them nothing to ransom, and Americans and Frenchmen no reason to roll over.

Obviously they have not thought through their cunning plan that cannot fail.

It is about time the world's navies got in there and did some yardarm hanging.

The only reason that's there is because someone told him he could get it, and someone out there is willing to pay that.

Had another weird dream last night. Was in a hospital for dehydration (this happened to me when I was 8) and I could see the ghosts of people who died there floating around through the walls. I followed the ghost of a little boy who had been somehow related to a big-wig doctor at the hospital. He had a scar across his face and kept trying to tell me how he'd died. He was continuously interrupted as more and more ghosts found out I could see them and tried to talk to me. I ran away to the lobby and closed one of those swinging double doors on them. All the ghosts got stuck half in and half out of the door and started jerking like bots in video games do that get stuck on scenery. Then they all started singing about their life stories in chorus. I had just singled out the little boy ghost and was trying to hear his singing when my alarm clock went off.

Beats me, I don't have the manual dexterity to text nor the inclination. If I wanted to tell you something, I would just call. I also have a regular camera that takes good pictures and I'm to cheap to buy MP3's and just listen to the radio instead. As for the communicator link thing *flips phone open* "Captain's Log.....supplemental............I'm stranded......on............an unknown planet............without........ hope of escape...........my only solace is ..................the attractive blanket, I found......... behind a boulder" , my wife keeps telling me that it hasn't been funny for about 6 or 7 years now. :D I thought that second picture was particularly funny.

Snerk. Mine every plays the TOS Star Trek theme. I have Hells own time with the whole texting thing. Talk to me. If I'm going to type, I'll use this thing. I have two cameras. Both digital. The Mavica at 1.3 megapixel gets used for web work (It has a great macro feature.) The newer 5 Mp camera gets used for other stuff. (Yes, neither is that new, but I'm no shutter bug)

I rip my CDs if I want mp3s and end up listiening to the radio in the car to get the traffic. I have an open source mp3 player, but seldom use the thing.
