Getting to Know Each Other = July Edition

Recommended Posts

I would say fluff is the reason you play a named rpg.  If not for the fluff, why dragonlance?  It doesn't really matter much to me for most of the skirmish games I've played though.  If it's well written then I'll read it, but if not I'll pass.

Question for July 18: Is gameverse "fluff" important to you, an irrelevancy, or does it annoy and irritate?

 

(If the answer varies by game do elaborate...)

Generally speaking yes. In table top games I haven't much paid attention to the background information available, because we just run home brew campaings. But in video games and such I love to know what's going on in quests and so forth. I read all the books in skyrim and eso. 

 

But then, I prefer the Silmarillion to Tolkien's novels.

I love fluff. I live for the fluff. If the fluff is inconsistent or inadequate I will make new fluff. Pages of it. Reams. The players may never see all of it there but the game will have fluff enough for me to wallow in!

A woman after my own heart :lol:

Sometimes the fluff needs a good scrubbing and de-fluffing though...

The thread has gone to the dogs...happily I like dogs.

 

So, therefore[?] the next question will be Star Trek  themed.  Some background knowledge is required. The Next Generation show (and the subsequent shows) kept running into an entity that would only identify itself as Q.

 

Q was whatever degree of all powerful the script writers found to be convenient. At least on a par with the Organians or Trelayne's parents, but with less conscience.

Four seems like it would be adequate for me.

None. Twenty four is about as many as I can handle.

Meh.  After 24 years of submarine life, "day" is a variable thing.  I can make it whatever I want.  Getting others to accept my definition, that's the real trick.

Depends on the day.

 

MONDAY - Minus 8.

WORKDAYS - Minus 6 ( 2 working hours of meeting coworkers and needed to justify monthly payment )

WEEKEND or VACATION DAYS - Plus 8 hours.

7, -13, 8.27, 131, and pi. For the first week.

 

You might notice that there are only five changes. That's because I'm going to change the length of the week, too.

 

Because I am the most annoying character in all of television history. And yes, that includes Steve Urkel and Arnold Horshack.

0. I'd add one day to the weekend instead.

None. There was a time when I worked up to 20 hours a day and it nearly killed me. Now I'm working 8-10, constantly distracted by family duties, older and not as energetic and like to have a bit of time to just sit or do hobby stuff. If there were more hours I'd have to be doing more and I feel like I'm already doing enough. There are some things I'd love to have godlike powers to fix but the amount of time I have isn't one of them. Actually accomplishing something with that time would be great.

      Greetings all! It is I, the Questgiver! Wait, no, the New Questioner! You are now on a quest to answer questions for a whole month! *mad cackling* 
       
      Okay, onward to December's questions. We shall discuss random things. We shall discuss ourselves. We shall converse about holidays and food! We shall have fun and merriment and describe said fun and merriment with mirth (not ruling out some moodiness). 
       
      For December 1st: 
       
      What have you done that you are proud of lately? It can be a big thing. It can be a small thing. We know you are at least glad to have done something!

      Greetings forum things! Once again, I, the Griffin of Grumpiness snag the tattered robe of the Quisitor in my beak for this the ninth month of Old Rome's calendar and also the month all Turkeys Dread!
       
      Question for Thursday, Nov 1st:
      Halloween is behind us, how long will you tolerate the decorations thereof?
       
      When do yours (if you had some) get stowed away for next year?

      I made a SNAFU and double booked myself for the Paint by Die Roll. The great kaiju has used his powers of internet and corrected it. However the Friday event had to be canceled. My apologies to everyone who was so kind to preregister. We have scheduled 2 new Paint by Die Roll events, One Thursday and one Saturday. We also added Survival Speed Paints after dinner every night. They are on the schedule and can be reserved. Again my apologies for messing up people's schedules!
