  • First thoughts on 'The Outer Worlds': I am legitimately enjoying myself with the entire thing thus far. It's got that same appeal that Fallout New Vegas had, but that's no surprise because they're the same publisher. The combat seems smooth and the UI is easy to navigate. I've already got more side quests than I can shake a stick at, but for me, that's a good thing!
    A highly successful DnD session tonight, in some aspects. We got..'invited' to a halloween 'party' by Cicero, god of chaos and madness. As you'd expect, it was completely insane. We got put through a 'costume party', endured a 'game' of fight hydra and beholder, an 'obstacle course' (my dwarf failed every dex check), and so much more. We got three magic items...oh, and each of us have a deadly sin stuck on us. The dwarf has envy...go figure.
    The eternal debate of 'Should I make an attempt at creating a group story?' versus 'Am I really motivated enough?' strikes me again today.
    This month is looking up. The nineteenth I head out for DnD. The twenty fifth 'The outer Worlds' releases. The twenty seventh, I head to my first ever comic-con. I like how this is looking.
    Another somewhat lackluster DND session. Two of our players no showed (One with good reason, fairly). We had a little interaction, a fight, and then we had to close down. if all goes well, a longer run awaits me next time.

    Aww. I give cookie anyway for the report. ^;3^
    Another DnD session done! This time, we started to dive into the dwarven clerics backstory. Sadly, the start is his grandfather passed away to a sickness spreading through the keep, and he was called back for the funeral and investigation. But it's going well!
    Reading through spells today, I realized there is a spell I'd love to use, but will likely never get to use. Earthquake seems so amazing (And fits the theme for a dwarf)...but it's super high spell slot, and I'm not likely to ever need a massive spell that consumes MILES. One can wish though.
    Another day, another DnD session. In todays session, we killed a dragonliche, got stuck in a 'groundhogs day' town that reset every day at mid day, and that was about it....though I did a GREAT job as cleric, and saved our party a few times.
    DnD session is finished. Great session. I got a golden phased honey badger (it's a golden badger, that can phase in and out on the plane I'm on), A warhammer that can do 6d6 or 6d8 (I forgot) thunder damage with full charges. And I killed like, 80 goblins in a horde.
    I'm considering putting up a character archive at some point, but I would never know where to start. Just so many choices, but no idea where to begin.

    I'm no character critic, but this looks like a pretty good way to start off. The whole thing looks like an absolute great wall of text on my phone, but I like the simple layout otherwise.

    I think it was nice that after you mentioned Jim's quirk for storytelling, you immediately had him tell a story afterwards. I like to imagine he overheard people talking about him, and he just had to walk in with one of his stories ready.

    Thank you. He tends to have a story ready for any situation, even the most outrageous. I make at least 80% of them up on the spot, but that one always stays the same.

    I think two characters should be enough for now, at least for tonight.
    Next DND night is the tenth. This chapter will open with us getting into the magic city in the sky...that also utilizes relatively advanced technology. Goal for that session: Find a mage or...three. Then I can finally forge a bow for our ranger, get it enchanted, and carry on with the next thing on my forging list.
    Another night, more DnD. We killed some zombie things, we killed two MASSIVE spiders, we saved a drider FROM the spiders, we got some gems and loot, and we got into super secret techno magic city in the sky. All in all, good session.

    I also suplexed a zombie and lit it on fire in one go, win.
    A long awaited DnD update.
    We rescued a literal predator (y'know, from the movies) from a research facility after mission impossible'ing our way in. We then proceeded to smash our way through the entire guard army out the front door, and then the predator blew up the facility.
    We then got stuck in a monsoon, and had to take shelter in a 'convienent' inn. Turns out this inn was a mimic. We found this out at 3 AM in game time, after going to bed around 12.
    My brother has moved out of the house today, and my grandmother will be leaving to head back home by next week. Wonder if anyone missed me, let alone noticed I was gone?....Nah, probably not.

    I missed you! And your D&D updates. Even when they were tragic, they were unusual and interesting.

    Aw, thanks kaerri. Haven't had a lot to report on the D&D front, things have been pretty slow so far. We met a tortle who I'm pretty sure was master oogway in disguise though.

    I have just recently found out that they've announced a new stellaris DLC in full, though there's no release date set yet...Guess there goes more money out of the ol wallet.
    Am I a bad person, or a good GM? Part of my wants to see my group's PC's succeed and continue onwards. And then there's that other part of me that's like "Yes they can succeed...but they will suffer every other minute to do so."
    I am so...so emotionally broken. Our druid died to a beholder's necrotic death ray. My revivify failed to work to revive him. To make matters worse, our paladin has brained a child in the streets of a city, on the premise it was the same looking child, as a rakshasa has been parading around as...and harassed us as for three months.
    My Grandad smoked his whole lif.I was about 10 yrs when mum said to him, "If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately." Tears in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. 3yrs later he died of lung cancer. It was rlly sad and destroyed me. Mum said to me- "Don't ever smoke. Pls dont put ur fam though what ur Grandad put us through." I agreed. At 21 i never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because ur profile gave me cancer anyway.

    Its bad enough that its a copy pasta. You actually typed it up so it makes you look more inbred than a sandwich.

    I remember this copy pasta. I think the part that kills me every time about it, is the spelling in some places.

    LOL i actually had to reduce the 600 characterz 😪 best copy paste ever imo i cant stop laughing at it
    Every time I look at my status page, I feel like I should have something inspiring or philosphical...or anything really, to make up for how bland it appears. So I guess....oh, okay!

    If you're reading this, you're a success. Even if you doubt it, you've pulled through in ways other may not have.
    Now that I remember, here's the usual update on DnD. We had to kill our fallen monk, who was revived by a twisted mix of druid magic and necromancy. Every internal system had been replaced by green growth and vines twisted into mass for muscles. The killing blow was quite romantic, as his own brother put him back to rest. We then went on to build him a proper grave and a marker. Why hadn't we done this before, you ask?
    HOLY. HELL. By moradins BEARD it was a wild evening. I dropped to one HP, we faced three insanely dangerous enemies (pop culture based, but still), I got my 'how do you want to do this' kill...I have had a blast.
    DnD weekend is here. Time to avoid a horrible, agonizing death, smash things with magic and hammer...and put up with the bard trying to seduce everything that moves.
    I have gotten my DnD figure. It's got a little heft (makes sense, I did cast it in bronze), it is shiny, and it is mine. I cannot wait to use this in my campaign, and hopefully do some good for our party.
