Crumb! Yes we are. I like the advantage/disadvantage mechanic, the background templates, and am still getting used to the long/ short rests and death saves mechanics. One of the teens in the group has some experience with the system as well.
I think I still like Pathfinder quite a bit, though it was funny that someone tangentially (not in this group) referred to it as Mathfinder (likely referring to the current need for things like a one-page flowchart just to cover the grappling combat maneuver), and I understand Paizo is working on a 2.0.

I sometimes forget that not everyone talks to things and critters, which gets me odd looks when a random group of just moved in college kids wonder which one of them I'm talking to and I have to explain "Huh, no no, I'm talking to the spider." :web:

Some footage of last night's Yes featuring ARW show here in lolorado, taken by someone way up close:


This was the third time my concert bud from work and I have seen these guys since they formed up and started touring back in Fall 2016, and they just keep getting better. As long as these old geezers keep performing, I'll keep buying tickets.

Default Re: What's up with you?

I'm starting a new job on Tuesday and I'm pretty excited about it.

I'm also proud of how I left the job I'm at. As is often the case I felt as if my contributions were unappreciated and my suggestions for improvement were ignored. So I initiated long, candid conversations with the leadership about my concerns, and when I was unconvinced that things would improve for me there I decided to leave.

I gave three weeks written notice to my entire chain of command up to the CTO and got no response from any of them. There was no counteroffer, no concern, not even an exit interview. Still, during those three weeks I made every effort to help position the team for success after I left. Not because I owed them anything--I absolutely didn't--but because it made me feel good about myself to do my best regardless of outcomes.

Matlock and I carried the stepladder over today and picked two kitchen sized trashbags of apples off a neighbor's tree because they have the best ones.

Now, I have to peel, core, and slice two kitchen sized trashbags of apples. I'm just freezing the slices this year instead of making them all into pies, at least.

But still.

Yeah so we had a Halloween party on Friday and our VP of Engineering, employed with us for about a month, apparently groped several of the women who work with us and was fired Monday morning.

How's your week going?

While that's a shocking turn of events, I'm pretty impressed that your employer acted so quickly and decisively.

Don't forget to breathe in and out. At least until you don't have to remind yourself you need to breathe in and out.

Was "the next hour" about election results? Or something personal? In either case, how did it go for you?

It's pretty good, though I've only played a few hours of it. So many games to play, so little time.

I'm playing off and on, but not doing marathon sessions. It plays much like Balder's Gate, which is appropriate enough. Have only done one extensive dungeon and not finished with that.

Only nuisances so far are the lack of a mini map and the camping mechanic is a bit annoying at times. Characters need to rest frequently traveling on the overworld maps and some oddities with the supplies you need. (10 lbs per person per rest is extreme. Can be offset by hunting but only in the overworld.
