  • Séadna Séadna you would probably be glad to learn that I'm now running a Delta Green adventure set in Modern Ireland...and heavily inspired by your thread and the explanations on the Sidhe/Tuatha de Danan.

    I'll be waiting! BTW, anything mentioning an underworld would be great:thumbsup:!

    Admittedly, I had to make the Fir Bolg and the Tuatha de Dannan two different pre-Gaelic civilisations which both retreated from the world in different ways...but I hope you wouldn't mind:shade:?
    As of today, me and all the kids* in the family are training BJJ together:devil:!

    *The ones below 18, at least:shade:!
    Today was a great day. First Son went to BJJ and liked it! He even behaved well.
    Second Son declared he wants to go where Big Brother and Big Sister are going.
    Then we had grappling night before going to sleep.
    I felt weird today.
    I saw a group of obvious schoolchildren (definitely below 14 yo). They were trying to be offensive to each other... using the so-called "N-word"...
    I mean, WTF? None of them was black. Odds are they've never seen anyone black IRL (it's Bulgaria here).

    There's a(nother) reason I dislike foreign TV:grin:!
    I expect Odysee to have a bigger following in Bulgaria, and possibly in Serbia and North Macedonia...:grin:
    Why? Because in Bulglish, Serblish and Northmacedonglish, "Ody See" clearly means "Go See". If local internet users don't find that hilarious...well, then I know neither my compatriotes, nor our neighbours:shade:!
    Which might well be the case, as COVID proved.

    Hmmm...getting tempted to learn it now. I've always wanted to learn a Slavic language.

    I forgot to reply, Séadna Séadna :smile:.
    I'm not going to tell you you should. I'm going to tell you it's an incredibly rich language, and hey, it's got no cases these days:wink:!
    After that, the decision is yours. Fair warning, I've been told it's not easy...though it might be easier for you than for someone who only speaks English.

    I've been doing a bit of reading and it's rated similarly to Greek for an English speaker, so definitely hard but not Arabic or Chinese level hard. I ordered Colloquial Bulgarian, since it seemed to get the best ratings as an introduction. Linguistically it's the most dialect rich Slavic language apparently.
    Interesting note: the BJJ butterfly guard is present in some silat and capoeira applications. What if one starts switching from one to the other:devil:?
    Tonight, I have work to do for my job. So of course, I just have to start by testing my lifepath chargen for Fight!: the Fighting Game RPG 2e:grin:!
    A
    AsenRG
    Bottom line: I did most of the work...on the following day. And the lifepath chargen took a couple days longer.
    I blame "the latest dumpster fire thread"...and really need to stop participating in those:shade:.
    I'm just sooo tired of scandals with the family!
    How tired? Well, tired enough that I'm at the point where I have been considering dropping RPGs altogether. I mean, we tend to play together, adults in the family are part of my group, but lately this just leads to more screaming and nagging.
    And I really can use a break from that!
    But honestly, if the scandals continue, one of us would have to go. Regardless of RPGs.
    I just read the description of the "Queen of Martian Catacombs" and the changes made to the original story to turn it into "The Secret of Sinharat". Still torn which one I like better...but they also show well the two different approaches to RPG Refereeing.
    A
    AsenRG
    What are the differences?
    "Queen of the Martian Catacombs" has the more romantic, one would almost say "narrative", ending... it is also the better story, IMO. That editor knew his job.
    "The Secret of Sinharat" is much more believable and overall, what I strive for in an RPG.

    Bottom line? Earth-shaking conclusions? Nope. Nothing of the sorts! I just like Leigh Brackett, that's all:grin:!

    I know there are sometimes significant differences between her magazine and book versions. Having read all of her fantasy in books I should seek out the magazine versions.

    Started BJJ. I don't expect to ever have an use for most of the ground moves on the street...but it's as much fun as I remember it to be, the trainer and the group are nice, and I'm getting in shape.
    By which I mean "lost about 2,6 kgs in three practice sessions". I kid you not.

    Also, it seems I'm now 5 kgs down.

    Today's account: I'm 5,6-6kgs down, depending on which numbers you trust. Not bad after skipping practice for 5 days to go to my country house:grin:!
    Also of note: first ankle hyperextension, ahoy:shade:!

    New update - I'm now 12,6 kgs down:devil:!
    And now I've got a rashguard with a 17th-19th century Bulgarian revolutionary on it. I bet most of you haven't seen such a model!

    Except I actually like the picture, if you mean "removing the picture".
    If you mean "removing a rash", I ain't got one. I got a rash-guard in order to prevent one from appearing in the first place:thumbsup:.
    I have a new "favourite product" now:

    "A facemask...with a p*ssy on the inside", to quote the description!

    I just managed to retell Heinlein's Time Enough for Love in less then a page. The amazing thing is how useful the word "fuck" was in that exercise:grin:!
    Also, when it comes to survival, Lazarus is like many of my PCs. When it comes to family, not quite.
    It's amazing to watch the reaction to the nuT$R expressing some opinions held by the majority of people in my country.
    But this ain't about the opinions themselves, thanks to Rule 0. I'm just wandering what a native Tekumelian would feel like listening to the talk in a pub in Golarion or the Forgotten Realms!
    That might be a campaign idea, or at least an idea for a Traveller PC:grin:!
    Some worlds in the 3I are different.

    OK, the continuation of the thread and it spilling in an unrelated thread makes that observation even funnier.
    I wonder suspect what the reaction would be if I was to create a world for Traveller where "gender" is a curseword...
    Like, you know, it has become one where I live:devil:!
    Exalted using 2d6:
    -Choose Caste. This should give you the equivalent of 2 skills (skills shall be more broadly defined than Exalted proper).
    -Choose Hobby (more narrowly applicable)
    -Choose Talents.
    -Choose 1-3 Traits. Yes, the number is rolled.
    Resolution: roll 2d6. For every single of the above that applies, add +3 if you're Celestial, +2 for Terrestrial/God-blooded? and +1 for Heroic Mortals.
    The GM roll opposed.
    Reading the thread about the Coyote & Crow impending fias...err, I mean, KS campaign :grin: !

    Second anti-COVID (Pfizer) shot delivered. And moving towards adding a fifth name to my IL here.
    "Part of assuming everyone is an adult is assuming you can handle people having different tastes than you, disliking games and mechanics that you like, and in general expressing statements you disagree with. It shouldn't matter to you this much."
    Wait, TristramEvans TristramEvans do you mean I shouldn't care some people might actually like D&D? But they're obviously WRONG:devil:!

    Yeah. Gaming forums are full of people who would be mortally offended if they were told something was wrong with them because of the type of music they liked, the sports they preferred to follow, the foods they found tasty or the pets they preferred (or not) to keep ... but have ZERO problem with raining hate down onto others for the exact ways they differ playing make-pretend games. Man do I hate tribalism.

    To be fair, the discussions on the Pub go more like:
    "You're playing differently, but whateverrocks your boat. It's just not entirely applicable to my gaming."
    "How dare you say I'm playing differently?!?"
    THE MAT IS IN MY LIVING ROOM!!!!!
    TRAVELLER 4 IS ON A SALE FOR $2 at DrivetTHRU!

    I was going to start a thread about a campaign idea, and then I realized that I've already got the best system for it: Mythras:shade:!

    What campaign idea, you're asking? Does it matter:grin:?
    OK, now I have a problem. Does anyone know of a martial arts/wuxia game published in the last decade and inspired by Legends of the Wulin?
    I have bought it, but I can't remember the name, and thus can't re-read it:grin:!


    The game in question is Dragon Pool. I opened my external memories, literally, and found it on one of them:shade:!
    Now I'm off to re-read it.
    Today 21-11-2020 might well become known as "the day when my group broke up". We'll see... but I'm not sure whether I'd even try to change that. Or whether I should.

    Eh, guys, no need to worry. There are other groups as well, I hear D&D even has something of a following... :shade:

    And if there aren't any that fit my time slots and preferences, I might try to join an overseas group over Internet. Or do more PbP. Or just use the spare time to get in shape.

    Or whatever. But I always survive, and don't even plan to stop playing :gunslinger:!
    My boss died from Covid-19 yesterday.
