Have to go get some parts for my car today. Amazing, the parts will cost me no more than $2.00 and the effort to fix my car will take $5.00. The mechanic said the cost will be $150.00, which is why i will be doing it myself.

Picked up the Players Handbook 2 the other day. I like it. I like the gnomes and sorcerers, but i didn't care for the gnomes appearance (I'm old school so the problem is with me and not the edition). Definitely recommend it for the 4E players.
Aww, man. I forgot I was supposed to make a 4e character this weekend. Blast!

Went on an aircraft carrier today. First time. Very cool.
Which one? I've been on the Lexington. Lots of very awkward staircases. Also, red buttons. Lots of them and they all said "Push me"! <.< >.> Not cool.

I was suppose to make a character as well, but life got in the way.

I didn't have time for the tour but did go on board. Next time for sure. Not sure of the name but it can be found in Alameda.

Is that the Essex class Lexington? Yes, CV-16 served 1943 to 1991. Grand old lady.



The USS Hornet sounds right.

USS Hornet CV-12. The ship that picked up the Apollo 11 crew after splashdown.

It's surprising how long some of those Essex class ships served.

I should make a pirate character for the 4e game. Is that possible? Haven't played D&D since 2nd edition AD&D

yukonhorror

it's possible with a bit of creativity.

I would choose rogue or bard. Rogue for more swashbuckling, and bard for more captainy pirate.

That is so true, not the ok my class gives me this power here that power there.....what powers do you have.

I miss the aspect of making a character with style and what you can make them do, not have it all set out in front of them. Too much like a video game that can bog down combat.

he was a great dm in some respects, but he was definitely anti-player. No exp pts, no gp, no magic items, etc... for a 12-18 month game we played at least twice a week (more during the summer), the highest level we got was 5th lvl.

They had a couple of good spells for the illusionist in the unearthed arcana if I remember, its been a while.

second (Major) game we played, same thing. 5th level came around, and he put us in a situation that seemed hopeless, so we got frustrated and lost interest.

I have never played a character higher than 5th level in 1st ed. That's why, for every 3.5 game I played or DMed, I insisted on starting at 4th or 5th level.

Antenna class. The one thing I regretted never taking in college just got offered to me for free, two hours a week for ten weeks. My job is paying for it and it'll help me get onto the newer, cooler projects (broadening my skill set, so to speak), but it's happening the night we picked for the online game. It's been beset by poor attendance as well, so I think it's best to let it go for now and try it again when the class is over (mid-july).

Always treat those that do the dirty work well. You want to then to continue to do the dirty work and not betray you to the "heroes".

Which is more likely to be loyal? The minion living in squalor and total fear, or the one with a comfortable living, health care and a 401k? The latter costs more but it pays endless dividends.

just read a preview article of death's reach (the new packaged adventure for 4e). They really confirmed my suspicions: the role-playing and fluff and story-telling (story-living) of Epic level play in 4e is awesome.

You ask where is the fluff, where is the rping of 4e, its in level21-30.

He didn't say much, but basically the adventure has you meet up with the Raven Queen (the actual goddess not the aspect of the raven queen) and you are to do some stuff for her (personally).

To me, that's sounds cool. Taking orders directly from a deity: nifty. None of this "she came to me in a dream" nonsense. I guess the 1st level of the adventure is actually earning an audience with her.

Of course if you have read any of the epic destiny entries (especially the dragon mag ones), you would know there are so many story options that stem just from which destiny you choose.

So if anybody is offering to run death's reach online, I am there buddy.

Jell-o powder is made from some Animal Fat I think, and almost any energy drink you can find has Taurine in in. (Taurine. Taurus - Urine)

While the Taurus Urine bit isn't actually true. :) It's really just a chemical extract made from the stuff you find in a cows small intestine...



Taurine, or 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, is an organic acid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_acid). It is also a major constituent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constituent) of bile (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bile) and can be found in the lower intestine and in small amounts in the tissues of many animals and in humans as well.

you have been on for about 2 years more than I. Also, I have a two week trip coming up where I won't be near a computer.
I have a big trip coming up too. This will give you your chance to catch up.

I am flying into barcelona, going to scuba for 4 days, then go on a 7 day med cruise along the toe-side of italy

Also, it'll be tough to scuba for four days. Won't you run out of air?

I am really looking forward to it, but kind of dreading it at the same time. I know I won't be done with my thesis research, and hope I don't dwell on it while I am gone.

Yea, that way we can all be even more jealous of yoyr fantastic trip... And yet gain some measure of excitment in our drab and uneventfull live by living vicariously through you... Ah, the wonderful world of hopeless contradictions.

Egon: Let's say this Twinkie represented the normal amount of psychokenetic energy in the New Yourk area. According to this morning's smaple it would be a Twinkie 35 feet long weighing aproximatly 600 pounds
Winston: That's a big twinkie.

When i lived near the beach, i never went. When i lived an hour from the beach, i went frequently. Must be something about accessibility.

Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village...I get big expressions of surprise every time I go there and get asked were I'm from. I'm from Dearborn, Michigan, where incidentally the Museum is located. Apparently people form Dearborn don't go there.

The long way to say you might have a point there.

I deserve it. It is my 5th yr wedding anniversary, my wife is graduating from college, and I'll finish my thesis this year. It is probably the last time I'll get to go on a vacation like this before we start having kids.

And we are "throwing caution into the wind" with respect to the pregnancy issue. If nothing happens after a year, then we'll go to doctor to make sure everybody is ok.

Be sure to take some pics scuba diving as well. I still have my diving pics. Good memories.

My father-in-law has an underwater camera, so we are going to borrow it to take pictures.

It is a aquatic refuge, so there are tons of species (I guess). My in-laws say I am going to be spoiled when it comes to diving.

Do you still dive? I would think living near the coast you could go more often than I do.

Once you start having kids you never will again. Ask me how I know.

I dont believe i even implied "thrill." Here's an interesting little story: What the heck? My weather channel says it's raining, but as i look outside, i fail to see this rain they speak of?

Reminds me once when i was on my roof in Fairfax, Virginia, putting up Christmas lights. The weather channel said chance of snow, i looked over at my dad and said: perhaps the weatherman should look out his window. We both laughed for it was snowing hard and we already had about 6 inches on the ground.

As for kids, I know, hence the trip. Might go on trips to see relatives and places like yellowstone, but ain't going on any european cruise. Not unless I win the lottery or something.

I plan on it. Still need to rent a car though. Or at least figure out how we'll get to the scuba place. It is not IN barcelona, but the train doesn't go to the town on the coast.

Best weather report I've heard (of). A Vermont forecaster. "Snow. How much? Don't know, 'taint stopped yet."

I recommend the old "Indian weather rock" A rock hanging from a tripod in your yard.

Rock is:
White -- Snow
Wet -- Rain
Dim -- Fog
Swinging -- High winds.

The Vermont forecaster story was hilarious. You had me laughing.

You'll have to explain the indian weather rock thing. I dont get it.:confused:

yukonhorror
04-23-2009, 10:48 AM
if the rock is wet, it is raining. Because rain fell on it to make it wet

If the rock is white, it is snowing. Because there is snow on it (snow is white in case you have been in CA for too long)

If the rock is swinging, it is high winds. It is hanging on a string, so the high winds make it swing.

Does anyone know what it takes to get rid of this thrice damned Lurker lable!!!

Thoth, I believe it was Thoth - I don't know any more that was like 10 pages ago - was correct that the Lurker title is lifted one month after your first post.


I think Farcaster has changed the "Activity" bar as well. I used to have no problem keeping it at 100%. Now I seldom do. And I have NO life.

I haven't been under the hood of the experience system in a while, but I believe the Activity Bar is actually a reflection of how many posts you have made in the past month versus the maximum number of posts that anyone else made. That is how the percentage is derived, unless memory fails me.
