I wouldn't say I'm usually an anxious person but there's definitely a feeling of it knowing at any moment you could turn into something stuffed and/or made of plastic. I'd take waiting around for murder turkeys over waiting around for this personally.

Hey, does anyone play any tabletop RPGs? I'm pretty well-versed in Dungeons and Dragons (Dorkus Pretendo Times as Tommy calls it, thank you Tommy for your genius that is truly a gift to all of us) but I've also played Call of Cthulhu, Warhammer, and Blades in the Dark.

Which, okay, backtrack.

Tabletop role-playing games are essentially a giant story that people tell together. You create a type of character that has a role--the type and the role determine what you might be good at, but there's usually dice rolling as well that determines your success or failure. There's someone (a Game Master, a Dungeon Master, other terms depending on the game) that narrates the story with you and who puts obstacles in the party's way and who has an overarching view of where the story is going, but the fun part is seeing how off the rails plans can go and the creative ways people use the game mechanics.

I've been the DM a bunch and I'd be willing to run a one-shot if people want to try? Or a longer campaign too, if there's interest that's great. It can be overwhelming at first, especially setting up a character and figuring out the points and all, but once you really start playing it gets better and the actual numbers come second-nature. And I'll totally help set up a character too, really, it's all meant to be fun and creative. There are all different types too--fantasy, murder mystery, steampunk, there's even one where you play as bears, because why not. And I know it's like, well there's a pixie who runs a coffee shop and magic everywhere and whatnot, who cares about this, but sometimes? It's fun to be someone else and try something totally different.

Anywho, back to my 10th re-read of Children of Húrin. It's either genius or unreadable, there are only two camps.

Right, well, that was a nice week off, and I'm ready to work.

I've seen people write on this communication device that they were desiring of training. I understand there to be a great variety of options already for this kind of thing, but if it's not a kick in the teeth, I'd like to have a go of it as a way to earn my keep around here. This wouldn't be intended for people who have the experience and the skills and powers I can't comprehend, etc, already in place, although I wouldn't kick out anyone with a genuine interest in improvement. This would be intended for people who have little experience with self-defense and want the basics, and we build from there - a way to keep the populace safer when we have these monsters breach our defenses and get as far as city center.

I'm thinking daggers, sword (one hander only, and on top of that, I don't have much use for shields in this exercise because they require so much body strength up front, and because the point here is not to tank through a hit so much as avoid it in the first place), club... open to suggestions. Also will have a blunderbuss or its like on standby; Vallo has yet to give me my gun but I'm not an Upper Cathedral snob; I'll work with what's available.

So: common lessons for those who want to learn from the ground up. I did it off and on for years back home. Physical self-defense only; while I can do magic there are several perfectly knowledgable universities that can be of more assistance for that, and I hear they don't even make their students prospect through any cursed tombs.

Any interest? Any objections? Speak.

It's Gladio's birthday so we're taking him camping for the weekend. If you could give us two days before anything violently stupid happens, that would be great? Thanks.

[FILTERED TO GLADIO & IGNIS]
I got all the gear together and Ignis has the food covered. But if you want to check what I packed, I don't blame you. I'm leaving Bass with Wei Wuxian but I packed stuff for Henruit? He's practically you in dog form so I figured we were taking him.

Now that my hangover has finally subsid I spent a great deal of time learning how to cook again when I went blind, and then adjusted again as our world went through some trying times, and now I find myself in an unfamiliar world. I've been doing research and a little shopping to procure ingredients I'm unfamiliar with so that I might experiment in the kitchen.

Would anyone here be interested in being a taste-tester? I could use a few people with varying tastes and preferences to try out a few dishes and provide honest feedback.

Eight total, four for Wednesday, two for lunch, two for dinner, and four for Thursday at the same times. If you have dietary restrictions, please feel free to include them in your interest. Dinner will include the option of a paired wine, if you're one to drink.

[NOCTIS, GLADIO]
I'm not entirely sure what I sh I Are Prompto had pictures on my phone, of me. I'm not entirely sure why, but he assured me they were "quality". Would either of you be willing to approve of them before I post blindly?

I imagine it's quite common around here to say something like "not exactly where I expected to end up", so add mine to the mix I suppose.

Cheers to those that helped me this morning in the forest - I'm not sure what the beast was that attacked us, but it certainly regretted that it tried. I'm Ignis, obviously a new arrival, but sadly not one that could fully benefit from the video they show newcomers, but I think I got the gist of things. No way home, stipend, an apartment in exchange for name and species, a free drink, and proper sunlight?

I don't want to put them on blast, but if anyone knows a Noc Gladiolus Amicitia or a Prompto Argentum, I would appreciate being pushed in the right direction.

This is the first toy Henruit hasn't destroyed in three days flat.

Whoever was looking for cool sword poses, hit me up and I'll help you out.

Jiang Cheng, do not be upset.

The Burial Mounds is here? How it was-- before. When it was prettier, and things were growing, and there is flourishing lotus! It's empty of people otherwise?

And the spirits are quiet too. But the cave is still there and so is my blood pool! Serefin, I have an idea.

I've always been a reader, and while the libraries at Bridgerton House and Aubrey Hall were very well stocked with a vast array of subjects, it was still lacking. I know this now especially well considering I'm 200 years later and there have been such great developments in all subjects, and I imagine quite a few of those books that I read would be laughably outdated if they were to be read now.

So, I ask this of all of you, if you're willing and so inclined - what book, whether fantastical or scientific, whether a novel or historical, would you recommend as a - how did I hear it described? oh yes - a "must-read."

It's funny how unpredictably nostalgia can hit you. I don't have much to be nostalgic for - I had a wretched existence as a searingly attractive-yet-abused indentured servant back home in the dripping ossuary caverns of the Ninth - and yet the people! A tiny blot of people. Not many people, mind, but a few - they're worth missing. Sex Pal would have just loved this place. He's a scholarly type - into dusty things of Great Historical Import - whatever that is. He'd absolutely see all the shit the academics have done here and just yeet himself into the center of it. (Incidentally, Sex Pal is not a sex pal; his name is Palemedes Sextus and he is a beautiful soul trapped within an amber of bitchiness, and he deserves the nickname. I don't swing that way because have you seen boobs, but if you put a knife to my throat and I had to chose, I'd go with Fandral here at Vallo anyhow. He reminds me of a palomino. Anyway, Sex Pal is just a name he hates and pretends not to notice when I use it. Sex Pal thinks I'll stop using it if he doesn't give me a reaction. I am going to use it until the universe ends.)

Anywho, rather than sit about and mope and wonder how everyone back home is - dead and/or smug, I'd wager - I'm going to try something new - yoga! It sounds awful. I can't wait to bend myself into a plate of spaghetti and wonder what the hell past!Gideon was thinking. Anyone have any experience? Can I do it raging?

[ Filtered to Serefin ]
I've been patient, I've been sweet-tempered and just, I haven't grabbed you by the ankles and shaken you, so now I must ask: why have you been moping about looking like some aggressively-haunted Victorian doll? I didn't want to be a bother but I simply can't be mature any longer.

Seems a bit strange I'm just supposed to pick back up at this whole living thing -
Right. Suppose I'm adding to the chorus of new here. Was told if there's anyone here I might know this would be the way to find them thought not quite sure who all is left to find -

Prepare to see the most adorable puppy because I can't resist sharing his smushy little face. Spirit's been curled up on the couch with me all day, and I think that blanket is now officially his.

If you're having a bad day, I hope he can brighten it for you. He's also available for cuddles - they're very comforting. 🥰

In news that I imagine only Blue is interested in, my previously cancelled book readings are being rescheduled for this coming week at Chastity's Nook during the evening. Violent fowl rather got in the way last time for reasons I just don't want to think about anymore for the sake of my pride. But the socks I was given as payment for this service are rather wonderful and I would hate to disappoint, so here we are, rescheduling. As the resident experts, I've requested that Caleb and Jester pick the books to pull excerpts from, so I'm sure there will be far better selections than I might have chosen.

Anyway, if you have some desire to listen to me read adult literature, next week is your chance. You should also buy books or literally anything else they have for sale while you're there. Or, I don't know, bring cupcakes.

(You're welcome for the stellar marketing. I know where you both live to deliver the bill.)
