Hello to all of my most special children!!! I want to remind all of you that you are precious creations who must nurture your bodies AND your minds AND your souls so please attend Tommy's yoga and meditation class today. You will feel refreshed and instantly calmer, and I can say I have never been more limber or felt at greater peace!

I know we are facing adversity and hardship. The days are long and stretch on. My angels, I hope you know that you can always come to me and I will listen, I feel your pain as my own. But if you cannot (or if I am out hunting animals to eat, that in and of itself PAINS me to do and yet I must in order to survive and be amongst my loves!!!!!) please, find someone to speak to. We are all in this together!!!!

Now, please, share your announcements, news, something you are struggling with, or something that you want to celebrate about your other community members. Me, although I do not like to single any of you out, Daud is as always on top of his information game and only needed reminding three times to stay hydrated yesterday!!!

REMEMBER TO STAY HYDRATED, CHILDREN!!!!

HELP.

My English teacher asked us to bring in an example of a modern song in the style of a 16th century seduction poem. Literally all I can think of is Marvin Gaye, "Let's Get It On", and I don't even like that song. Does anybody have any better ideas?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

There's nothing like knowing you just scored the perfect Christmas present for somebody. I actually shouted "YES!" out loud in a public place when I found it. I'm gonna be high on this all day.

Guess what I found at the record store? My "what the hell do I get Hopper for Christmas" panic is cancelled, because the answer to that question is FIVE Jim Croce albums! And they weren't even that expensive, because people in Vallo don't know who that is!

I'm gonna be picking up Eddie's DMing for kids on Sundays at Wicked Games. It's kind of intimidating trying to pick up where the master left off, but I'm gonna do my best. So if you have kids who play, go ahead and bring them: the battle to defeat The Dark Omnificus and rescue the Unicorn Princess is still on.

So obviously our gaming group has taken a big hit. I wanted to ask you guys if you want to keep going with this campaign and come up with something to do with Eddie and Dustin's characters, start something new with just us, start something new and try to recruit a couple more people, put the whole thing on hold indefinitely, or put the whole thing on hold for a set amount of time (like a month or something).

I'll roll with whatever you guys want to do, but I'm hoping you'll want to continue in some way at some point. You're both great players and I like playing with you.

Vallo Musical: El and Mike


[info]the_paladin
[info]valloic
(It’s a beautiful autumn evening on the front porch of Hawkins House. They’ve been through a lot recently, and it’s hard to find the fun and the joy they’ve usually felt in this place. As Mike looks at El in the moonlight, though, he’s suddenly overwhelmed by just how much he adores the girl next to him, and utterly amazed that somehow she feels the same. As the feeling hits, that’s when the music starts.)

In classic 80s fashion...I've Had the Time of My Life )
(The dance is concluded not with a lift that would definitely get one of them killed but with Mike twirling El around and dipping her low over his arm. For just a second, they freeze, letting the image settle for the audience, and as the music cuts off, Mike breaks out laughing. This is the stupidest, best thing he's ever done.)

Posted about 5 minutes after the library fight is over.

So by now ah- most of you are aware we had a situation at the Library. We still don't have all of the details - I don't know if we ever will, but what we do know is this:

  • Ashurbanipal, King of Assyria, approached the library this morning, and challenged King Noctis in an attempt to rule Vallo? Unaware that Noctis is not the King of Vallo.
  • He threatened Nancy, and the Library wards went defensive, one of the skeletons was killed in the mess, and the King took that as a challenge.
  • The library went into lockdown mode, and there was a fight. I do believe they underestimated a whole group of librarians.
  • Nancy was able to knock the amulet off of the King's neck, and that was when the skeletons all disappeared? We have it now, but the amulet is damaged, and the king is gone. I put it in a protected vault for the moment but we'd feel more comfortable if one of the covens takes it, so we're going to reach out to them later for that.
  • We do have some casualties and people are being taken to the clinic now, but I don't think anything was fatal. Mike, Darlington took Nancy there just a few minutes ago and you may want to visit.
  • Full disclosure that I am also on my way there now, but I was told by triage that it "should be an easy heal". I didn't even realize I just had a

    If anyone has any other information to share, we'd love to hear it at the library, since we'll be documenting this in its entirety.

    First day of school, and we've got a bunch of skeletons just chilling on the school lawn. And I don't mean plastic "somebody got excited about Halloween early" skeletons. I mean actual bone skeletons that were walking around like they own the place. Carrie in my literature class said one of them asked her if she had any "tomes of power and might." (Apparently her math book doesn't count.)

    So, thanks for making the first day of junior year good and weird, Vallo. Now I can think about how the hell skeletons are capable of talking instead of listening to anybody drone on about the syllabus.

    Added Slightly Later:
    Also, say I wanted to dampen sound around my lunch table at school so it's not so loud that we have to shout our whole conversation. Are there magic items that could do that? And if they do exist, how much would it probably cost to get one? (Specifically, could someone with "part time at the gaming store" money afford a Bubble of Quiet or whatever?)

    Hey Outlanders. Are we sticking with our lunch table from last year, or are we trying for one of the ones up by the windows?

    So, right, I run a Dungeons and Dragons group that's been going on for awhile (it's a tabletop role-playing game) (which is basically storytelling while getting into conflicts) (we're always taking new players, I can teach you, go to Mike's store for dice) but sometimes I like trying new games because one sheet games are easier for everyone to learn as there's literally like, three rules to learn and it's a good way to get started or try a new genre. I tried to play Lasers & Feelings with Teddy, but it turns out that when you're the long prophesized ruler of two forever warring races (thank you Kree, thank you Skrulls) who actually has to sit through hours long meetings with diplomatic envoys, it takes the fun out of roleplaying in space.

    So, Feng Shui 2 is like playing a character in the most Michael Bay John Cena Dwayne The Rock Johnson Jason Momoa Jason Statham Whoever is the New James Bond John Wick Hey We Need Other Gender Representation Up In Action Movies cinematic masterpiece of all time. Think every action star cliché you can think of, and then put all of those characters in a movie with an unlimited CGI budget. Who are you? The grizzled veteran sucked in one last time? The child of a recently deceased famous parent come to make your parent proud?

    For everyone who has always wanted to put on sunglasses while slo-mo walking away from an exploding building or pulled a helicopter out of the air by sheer brute strength, or said a quippy one liner before becoming a blur of martial arts, this is the game for you. Give me your action star name, your cliche/trope, and your signature move/catchphrase, and let's go save the world.

    I don't have an official day yet, I figure when I find out who's interested I'll send out a few dates and we can pick whatever works best--and if there's a big demand we can make different groups by who is available when, I don't mind. As per usual, there will be snacks because if there's not food, Tommy will riot.

    Teds

    So the fighting made me think

    Do you miss

    Or maybe you don't miss because you're doing it

    You were a better superhero than me

    Painting miniatures is addictive. I'm still not the total best at it, but I really love doing it. It's like my brain goes on vacation while I'm focused on all those tiny physical details and I'm completely out of my head and into my paint brush. It makes me feel like Will's closer and further away all at the same time.

    I also like what it does for how I see the enemies and NPCs I make for my game. This isn't just a faceless bunch of aliens anymore, because I painted every detail on these guys and now they're individuals who matter. It really helps me get immersed in the world, which I think makes me a better DM. Or Spacemaster, I guess, since I'm running Starfarers. (Which is a great game, by the way, thanks Vallo, we're having a blast.)

    Hey, since you guys like to pop in on our sessions sometimes...any chance I could pull any of you in to play some NPCs for me? I've written too many side characters for tonight's session and I'm afraid I'm gonna run out of voices to do for them. You'll have free rein to play them however you want beyond some basic parameters.

    Got my outfit half-planned out for prom. Just picked it up today. I'm thinking a nice pair of black jeans will really complete the look, but there's something to say about a nice pair of cargo pants with a hundred pockets for being stylish and functional.

    Hey. So we have a bunch of cool nerds here, and I figure most of us aren't getting invited to other people's end of the year cookouts and whatever. Do you guys want to try having our own? The people at my house would probably let us host, if there's any interest in it. (I haven't asked yet. I wanted to see if the response was more "yeah, let's hang out" or "shut up you dumbfuck" before I bothered.) It could double as a graduation party for the people getting out this year.
