Bones Kickstarter #2 Pre-discussion

The street on which I live is being completely rebuilt from the ground up.

The morons pouring the concrete curbs severed my Internet cable (and at least seven others) and failed to tell the cable company. I've placed a service call with the cable company but it's going to be a big job; if I don't have my broadband Internet back by Tuesday there will be... consequences :grr:

 

A water main asploded just past the property line of this house shortly after moving in, and for five weeks it felt like I was living on the edge of a martian pit. I kept waiting for the curate to go mad.

 

Mind you, many tentacles make short work. So five weeks was pretty quick. Could have done it in three, but they kept taking breaks to shout out "Ulla!"

Caffeine, Australian East Coast has the same time zone as Singapore and, ah, Vladivostok, IIRC. In any case, GMT +10.00

Yeah, I know its GMT+10. My problem was working out whether CST meant actual CST (GMT-6) or CDT (GMT-5). Need both ends to do a conversion.

 

Once the countdown timer was fixed it was all fine.

 

 

When in doubt, guess "D".

 

Thanks to the most recent changes (what, like 8-9 years ago?) Those of us who are saddled with daylight time in the U.S. actually spend more of the year on the daylight schedule than "standard" time.

I hate how the changeover got pushed way back to the end of October just before Halloween, leading to jet-lagged kids trick-or-treating, staggering across streets in front of jet-lagged drivers.

I am so geared up for this one.

 

Dan and I are working on a system right now that will stat up your favourite Bones and play games with them. Last night we were hashing out rules over a game where Nova Corps were sent into a ruined building to clear out giant rats. Pretty fun so far.

I would love to see the rules for this or even beta test it.

Actually, you get an extra hour of sleep, you know, the one we lost in spring. This is the good side of DST. Consider it bonus time to paint minis from KS1 before KS2 completes. You want real pain, try dealing with the Brazilian/US time shift. Half the time they are the same time zone, the other half they are 2 hours off. I imagine that Oz has the same problem...

Because of the international complications, I seem to lose sleep with the DST change. The US shifts one way and half of Australia shifts the other, and suddenly our 4:30pm/7:30am calls are at 5:30pm/6:30am/7:30am and I am in the office until 9pm while they're arriving at 6am.

 

(The month of chaos around each change is fun as well, since we can't be bothered to change clocks at the same time...)

No daylight savings here in Arizona. There are other places in the US that refuse to join in as well.

 

Arizona was actually the exact place I had in mind when I said that "nearly everywhere" used daylight savings. Y'all just had to be rebels, didn't ya? :;):

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

Ad well, Indiana... It goes by county, where it used to be split vertically down the state. Personally, I am on the side of abolishing daylight savings time... If you want more sunlight just go to work earlier.

Oh. I am in. And my wallet has thankfully doubled since last time. Also, if there is paint again, I should really do that this time. I gotta get some dropper bottles.

 

I have to agree with the first 10 - 14 pages though.

I'd really like to see some more monsters, or furniture, or ice walls, or whathaveyou for Game Mastery.

I've gotten through about half of my monsters, townsfolk and all of the dungeon stuff I ordered.

Batch painting does go faster, but based on utility, my heroes come last.... unless I have a player who needs one.

 

That being said, I won't want to complain this time around, since I will certainly have minis to paint before it arrives.

 

I wonder if I can get them finished before the second one arrives in the mail....

 

[Note: my painting, while better than the disasters that come from a certain well known brand of gaming supplies, is still not on par with ANYTHING from the inspiration gallery]
