    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Apparently there is now story time with old man [my last name] at my office. I am old man [last name]. My co workers that are being hired are now 14 years younger than me. I guess at least my old man crazy stories are being appreciated.

    Did no one offer you some vanilla ice cream? Sorry to hear about the carbonation thing. You're not missing much.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I used to be all about Sprite, since I knew I shouldn't be drinking caffeine. But I have recessions in my health. Lately it has been Clearly Canadian. I like the blackberry one. I like the purple soda. I do not like the slurpee, dex4, purple drink or wine. But I do like grapes. Grapes are good. Purple soda is made from an ester that someone thought tasted like grapes.I assume they were into dark blue or purple grapes, the likes of which I have never had. It's within the field of Welches grape juice. but at the other end. They thought wrong. But not all accidents are bad. Now we have purple. Just like blue raspberry. Which I am sure exists in the same alternate reality grape guy, or artificial vanilla guy hailed from. An alternate reality I wish not to visit.

    Ouzo Ginger Beer Watered down pineapple juice That one generic brand of soya sauce that gave you PTSD (Everyone has one) Feta Cheese Brine Clamato V8 Splash Safeway's Tea with a Twist Chocolate Pop Low Calorie Rice Milk Pepsi There. That should have gave everyone something that they could get offended over.

    Piper from Charmed. I guess she'd learn... witch bolt. *dodges tomato* Raimundo from Xiaolin Showdown, because he's an overconfident jerk and a monk, and an elementalist.

    I believe I am legally required to say "one of us" repeatedly until they join.

    I suppose that is why I am always stressed out. Oddly, it's not the gaming. Gaming makes me less discouraged. Doesn't do anything for my stress.

    Welcome to the jungle has become a joke around the office ever since the corporate aerobics class started playing it. I can't believe it has reached the level of Zellers muzak. Now it's elevator music intended to get people to shop. The other day I mentioned the band Trapt and people stared at me like they didn't know who I was talking about. Then I realized it was a 16 year old reference. It's almost old enough to be back in style!? This story intrigues me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter. Also the song is neat. Might come up in my game tonight. I am not GM'ing, but I am still DJ'ing. The DM really appreciates the musical interludes I have offered so far. Although anything I jokingly brought into the server from the 8-16 bit era was not good for ambience. Though it was hysterical to break out FF4s battle theme against the chimera.

    I like your angle on this, but even then, it looks like it encourages even more bookkeeping. I already have my spell list for that! That being said, I've pretty much stuck to the party face / spellcaster and these ideas while they seem to fit the system mechanically, seem strange and new to me, in a game system that was supposed to be strange and not in any way new to me. Sometimes you sand things and get a polished sheen. Other times, you sand things and end up with a beach made out of tinfoil.

    Yes, I like museums, I haven't been to one I hated yet. but I enjoy reading non-fiction, when accompanied by art or a diorama. Especially if they contain discussions of rudimentary skills, like how my ancestors made soap, for example. It's the most palatable way to absorb history, I think.

    Well, I have been recruiting people to the hobby as fast as I can. I now have brought three more DMs into the fold in their 20s in the past 3 years, and brought in about 10 new players. I have even resorted to dirty tactics like painting minis for people and placing a new set of dice in their hands. Works really well. I recommend this process.

    I seems I did. That seems to be waning after 12 years in customer service and 4 in retail though. TBH I'm getting real tired of telling customers they are right. Especially when they are downright rude. Which is common in my current industry. I miss just working with my headphones on. I had that for a little while. But it didn't pay well. So I meditate.... and I scream along with metal on my drive home and maybe I will take up boxing and demolition as hobbies. Hopefully that will get the anger out.

    I'm going to say something horrifyingly offensive to myself: I want you all to have fun. Even if it is with an edition that doesn't agree with me. I can be wrong. If someone invites me, I'll probably give it a try. I'm just going to nuke what I said earlier. I find it very, very odd what they have decided to do with the cleric and paladin. Not sure I am into it. I'll have to play to know. But it seems strange to me that it is now feat based to pick up a domain. And I don't think I like that at all. I don't think I like where fighter is going. I understand people really enjoy the whole, more feats, more stat bumps or whatever, but in a world where a DOMAIN is a feat. I am concerned. It seems very unbalancing. I guess there is part of me that was never onboard with the 3e skill trees through feats. It felt too limiting and compromising. Are they trying to make more feats than ever before? I have a feeling they are trying to introduce too many class variants from the get-go rather than testing and making them unique, again. That being said. it will be different. I just hope they read their audience before it goes to print.

    My FLGS closed on the day after a magic tournament for new years, no signs, no notice, not even a goodbye on the facebook page. The one across the street from my work, in another town did the same thing when I wanted to buy books and reaper stuff. All both stores kept in stock was magic the gathering, and I can get those anywhere, provided I wanted them. A local store popped up, saying they have hobby stuff. It too, only contains magic the gathering. There are two rather nice places to shop for gaming stuff in my (cities) but neither of them are remotely near where I want to be.
