  1. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    It could be worse... ...might truly be worse.

    They are endangered. Low in numbers. The only feasible way of saving them is to treat them much the way expensive livestock (such as racehorses) are treated. Hence the studbook. Mostly used by and intended for zoo directors and conservationists.

    I do not. I did adopt a pet rock once. Never did pick a name for it. It is still waiting patiently for me to do so. I have known some folk that named their cars. I’d like to think if I owned flew a fighter plane I would give it a name...

    Yes... A pickup truck... 16 or 17.....? (Summer in-between school years.) Funny as in Surreal: I have driven to West Texas a few times. There is a place**** out there near a town called Snyder where one can get out of the car and look at flat horizons in every direction. AND all the way out to those horizons there are row upon row upon row of windmills literally as far as the eye can see, in every direction. (Don’t let anybody tell you Texas is not into clean energy...those wind farms are big enough to see from Orbit.) ****Place being a four lane blacktop major highway.

    They key was to admit nothing — deny everything.

    Do you still have any of the books?!
  7. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Yes. When I was seven? (I think ) There was that time my brother ran into a tree... And that other time he ran into a parked car... Yes. 8? years Old. Not really...swimming is just not enough ( ) fun... for anything funny to happen.

    Long gone because: —she got bored waiting for you? —she got scared you’d been washed out to sea? —she got washed out to sea? You could’ve written for Paul Harvey back in the day...

    Well, The Spirit of the Forest ^ Dragon is pretty cool. I guess. I don’t have a picture (because I gave the item away) but one time I created a magical Elven Waystone. It was a terrain piece that would magically stand itself up, if it was toppled over. I also did a Fungal Forest that looks rather realistic.

    Tonight it worked. I got to talk to George and ...[Kendall ?] I Just. Don’t. Get. It. It *works, it mysteriously **quits, it mysteriously ***works again. (*Sept., **Nov., ***March.) ### griffin flaps away in search of a meme of a confounded looking griffin ###

    You mentioned the number 3 ...make sure there are always threes. Three clues, three trolls, Three Hearts and Three Lions, three BBGs, Three Doors. ~~~~~~~ Taverns and inns with pictorial signage that makes some kind of a subtle pun. You could have two rival taverns The Three Hearts -or- The Three Lions in a town on opposite sides of a square. A minor conflict that could embroil or distract the PCs. The situation is called Three Hearts and Three Lions Which is also a book title listed as source material in the Old DMG. ~~~~~~~ Sky Galleons, Dragonships, Flying Frigates = spelljammers by other names.

    Yes. More than twenty.

    I bought some LED candles from last Xmas! For just this reason. Why would a closed road stop anyone?

    The former one did. Several subjects. Most of which was just blessed corporate idiocy (constant-never-ending-improvement-schemes) slogans, mantras, etal. (...who came up with the phrase “mission statement”? ...and how can they be punished?) There was one SUBJECT that proved rather important.

    The Undiminished British Empire as it stood at the height of Victoria's tenure. ( @Beagle ) -Or- (if it is the other thing...) I will have whatever Q is having. So basically a Q ? Why be selective? If you were a Q you could just delete them by the shed load.

    I am sure there is one I am not remembering...so Final Answer: SEVEN. Does Warlord count as Out-Of-Print...?
  18. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    I can think of six. Interesting that previous responders answered by listing titles. As if the question had finished with, “...and what are they?” Useful since some of you reminded me of games I was not remembering.
  19. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Yes. Not sure....but the author(s) will be one of these five: Alexander, Lewis, Rowling, Tolkien, Zelanzy. Because you never know what you’ll want to re-read until you need it... Book Shelves

    Mythical fabulous monsters from heraldic bestiaries. Griffins (ahem) are decently represented (except for the wingless kind) but where are the Wolpertinger’s? And Persian, Assyrian, and Mycenaean critters...
  21. Post Office Lack of Caring

    I have been pretty lucky. That said... I can pretty much guarantee: The stuff that happened to that box was entirely the fault of heartless uncaring machines. There are lift gates, elevators, and mechanical arms... ...I can almost picture the exact spot in a machine the size of a school bus where that could happen.
  22. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    I do. Rooting through the melt table. Classes. Last time: Frostgrave.
  23. Google Hangouts Chatter thread

    I could try. But it failed to connect at all the last time I did. I should be free around 9:45 your time. [?] ~~~~~~~~~~~~ edited to add: Well it is 11:12 instead. It seems like I have signed on. But no one is there?
