    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    1007! Is this the longest we've managed to keep one of these threads spammed open?

    Like his armor and the green tunic.
  5. Personally, I'd say it looks a lot more like the kind of character I like to see in GURPS. He's really good at some stuff and pretty good (keep in mind GURPS says 12+ means you can make a living with that skill!) at some other stuff. Comments: 1. Mechanic requires a specialization. Could be as every day as Automotive or Motorbike (both surely fitting for an ex-ganger), could be something like Robotics (as in industrial assembly line robots) too. 2. Climbing and Swimming were bad examples on my part, given they're more tailored toward soldier types (covering ground in non-urban scenarios). A ganger might be better served by things like Holdout (he probably doesn't have a permit for that gun), Stealth or Streetwise. That said, Climbing certainly could have its benefits making a dishonest living breaking and entering through upper-floor windows ;) 3. On a similar note, Tactics in GURPS is considered a fairly hardcore military skill. Even police (except SWAT, obviously) mostly wouldn't have it, and gang tactics like drive-by shootings don't really require the skill. If you say Raul spent time studying the subject because he thinks himself a leader it seems fine, though. 4. I would tbh consider spending a little less on skills to get to DX 12 after all. This is still GURPS, so slightly higher attributes at start are usually better long-term. You wouldn't have to stretch very far; with Brawling, Driving, Guns and Knife being bought one level lower, you'd free up 14 points by my calculation.

    Just let me get there before you so I can decorate ahead of time, I hear proximity mines are in vogue right now. Though I do hear that proximity barbarians are all the rage these days.

    It's been an adventure. Wouldn't recommend it. House is very nice, though. Ought to get into it sometime next week.

    I think I’m a bit of a weird one with coffee, I do like it (black, like my heart) but a few years back a guy I was seeing said “you always have coffee breath” and I was so mortified, being thrown back to my school years and remembering that disgusting coffee-breathed teacher trope, that neither that relationship or my relationship with coffee lasted long after that. I will occasionally drink it, but it is not my life blood.

    Good morning all, I see we’re all living on borrowed time here in floor-is-lava-land!

    *sits in front of the controls, sees the massive tail of pages behind them growing beyond normal limits, grits his teeth and turns to look through the cockpit* Hang on people, this thread is about to be going to plaid. *pushes lever ahead and activates the hyperdrive*

    "Coffee stimulates the body; tea stimulates the intellect." -Pezler the Polychromatic Never liked coffee as it is. Love coffee cake and Coffee Crisp, and similar things. I'm not against it, I've been trying it a little more with things like mocha with extra espresso, and my Coffee and Maple Glazed Bacon is phenomenal, if I do say so myself.

    She came out nice. The bulky clothes do hide a lot. I bend stuff accidentally all the time.

    Thanks so much REAPER!

    Okay, so I figure since this was my original post, pulling it back up would be okay. Just got my order (partly from funds from the Yeti Contest, thanks again @ladystorm) and once again Reaper did not disappoint! Everything looks great (though I was a little shocked the owlbear was just bagged like kickstarter mini's usually are haha. Still an awesome mini!), and they even kindly threw in another great sample paint! So without further ado, here's what I got: Yup, Viridius, Bones Black Owlbear and 40mm base (I need something to push over 40 bucks haha). And a cool blue sample paint:) Cannot wait to paint the owlbear and start working on viridius.

    Seems to me that this would be a good area for the Police to give some extra attention to. Classify it as a "Safety Zone" and really lean on the worst offenders. They will either clean up their act or find so much of their pay going into City Coffers in the form of fines that they find a job elsewhere. And it sounds to me like you have a similar problem with the coal haulers that we have on the West Coast with the short-haul container monkeys haulers. Generally under trained. Usually overdrive their actual capabilities and skill level. Always in too big a hurry and any smaller vehicle is on its own as far as any observance of safety or common sense goes. Too many companies that use the major wreck method of screening drivers for actual competency, which ends up with a lot of unnecessary bent metal, hurt civilians, and broken scenery. What you describe at the bridge approach sounds like an area where the City needs to start stacking the violations, with a basic speed violation and a right of way violation stacked on top of that. Repeat offenders get higher fines, max points against their commercial licenses, and for the worst violators arrest with impound of the truck and if it's a company truck the company gets to pay the tow bill and yard fees [which then get deducted from the pay of the arrested driver who usually ends up getting fired for costing the company time and money]. It usually doesn't take very long to get these sort of situations under control, and then it only takes a little extra effort every few months to keep it under control. GEM

    So hopefully your arm continues to improve, but I learned a cool trick from my physical therapist. You take a paper cup full of water, freeze it, and then peel away the top of the cup. You now can 'massage' your sore, inflammed appendage with the ice. It's much nicer than sitting with an ice pack for 20min. Hope you're feeling better!

    Oh, yeah! That works just fine as a female. You're right, the old beard is not out of place on this one. Nicely done.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    If he does that, it should totally be my previous post. I mean, it's only fitting. Well, this was the brakes on the rearmost driver's side wheel pair on the trailer. His extinguisher put it out by dumping the entire thing into it(as I said before, the wheel hub and rim were toasted when I looked later). It was one that was maybe twice the size of the one I have under my kitchen sink. The cloud was enormous and covered the whole bridge, and I was just thinking that I hoped another truck didn't come along because in all honesty those guys turn onto that bridge way too fast and he was only maybe his whole truck length from the turn. It's a 2 lane bridge with a wide turn onto it, and half the time the trucks won't slow down enough to take the turn without eating up the entire oncoming traffic lane for a good 20 feet. The city has tried to ban the trucks from using that route into the city because of how the truckers do that, but they can't because it's a state route that the state specifically has marked as a trucking route. And then the state doesn't maintain it for crap...

    No. I don't like the taste and caffeine doesn't do anything for me, so I never bothered getting used to the taste.

    Yes, please! Oh, I strained my arm when I fell down the stairs. It was all inflamed, so I was icing it. Feels much better now. Yes, please!
