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.

Well, I guess that's just my luck, arrive somewhere new only to see the Aunt you're named after was here and is gone already. It would have been really cool to meet Aunt Prue.

Anyways, I'm PJ Halliwell, not completely sure what I think of this place yet but the musical intro was pretty fun! I guess there are some good senses of humor around here!

So, I guess getting a job is the next step, is there a radio station? Or something? I mean I could do print journalism too.

I've been here for over a year now. It's been amazing! I've met so many great people, I've eaten so much food--

But apparently, I missed my yearly training check-in with Surtr and now his sword came to haunt me. So, I guess if you need any warrior training, there's a waypoint to a training arena? Just look for the giant sword and a little lava.

It's definitely hard, but a good challenge, I've been running the trials since I was uhhhh eleven? Anyone who likes taking on my dad at the teamwork exercises should love it AND it's a great way to practice new magic and train with new weapons? I've never died there!

PS: Jokes on whoever put glitter in my hair products, I love it and I'm going to rock this glitter mohawk all week.

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.

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?

A place from my world called Nanda Parbat arrived, and it's located within the mountains. It's not easily accessible, thankfully, but if you're up there and you find something that looks like this, it should be avoided. It's the home base of a shadow organization and it's dangerous to walk around that place if you're not familiar with it. Don't take that as a challenge. I'll be setting up security around it soon.

We've lost track of Sam Wilson and he's not responding to shortwave transmissions. The forest seems determined to separate the patrol team today. I don't know if it's the vultures doing something or if it's just bad energy in the forest itself, but we need to double down on watching out for each other and staying in pairs at minimum. Please report immediately if you know anything about Wilson's location or if you can help us search. And please continue to report any sightings of these things. Just because they're chaotic, doesn't mean we're going to be.

On my run this morning I smelled blood encountered some locals in the forest who had been attacked by something. I got them patched up, but one of them was in pretty rough shape and I had to convince them to come into the city to be looked at further. Whatever it was that had attacked them wasn't something they had ever seen before.

So stay aware if you're out in the forest today.

Celebrating my 19th birthday in a weird alternate reality was never a plan. Shocking, I know. It's extra weird that it was just, like, summer when I got here almost a month ago, but I guess I'll take it.

So, fellow outlanders, in prep for tomorrow, where's the best place to celebrate a birthday around here.

Follow up, completely unrelated question: favorite running spots?

You guys did great yesterday. You made me instantly regret the sausage racing which is real talent. But it was fun. Hopefully, you got had a good time and got to know your teammates a little better. If not, blame Sara.

On an entirely different note, I was out flying Black along the coast and I found a lighthouse that seems off? I spent some time on another plane and this feels I couldn't post this while I was still inside. It's really nice in there, though. Unsettling but nicely decorated. A lot of books and furniture, and a kitchen? I figured I'd start looking through the items to see if anything leads to anyone specific but now that I see Dorian's message, I really need to help the patrol team. Does any of this place ring any bells?

Good morning - I do hope everyone is enjoying their breakfasts, or already enjoyed one, because I'm about to share something which may make you lose it.

There seems to be an infestation of Deepstalkers in the forest - they hail from Thedas, in the Deep Roads specifically. Found underground, they're a big part of dwarven folklore and stories told to children - though they do actually exist, and look like lizards with round mouths filled with teeth and extremely creepy claws. Pure nightmare fuel, essentially. They hunt in packs and spit acid, so take heed if you have a farm or a garden or plan to go out hunting for them yourselves.

Though Deepstalker hide is a common crafting material in Thedas as well - if you bring what you skin to Glorious Purveyors, we'll see what we can do.

I'm sure some of you were hoping it was a one-time thing but Sara and I both agreed that November's training exercise was worth any grumbling. We'll be having round two on the 15th at the training grounds. Wear form-fitting athletic clothes you don't mind getting dirty and bring a towel. We'll make sure you're properly hydrated and fed.

Also, I'm having team t-shirts printed this time, so if you don't want me guessing, you can let me know your size or fill out a request card at the office by Thursday.

DEFENSE DEPARTMENT.

If I haven't said it recently, you're all amazing and this department is lucky to have each of you.

How would everyone feel about a team dinner out one night? We can hold a private event at Galahd's. Food and drinks on me. Karaoke optional.

Any insight on the giant robot lion that casually landed downtown yesterday?

Anyway, the Orchestra has decided they're going to do a night of Lord of the Rings music and I'm pretty excited about it. I have a hard time sitting through the movies and the books, but the soundtrack is a different story.

Since Richie just found an item from my world, I wanted to put up a warning just in case any more start showing up.

Richie found the Fire Totem. Or it found him. Either way. It's one of six. Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Spirit, Death. Five of the Six are stones, the Spirit Totem is more of an animal head carving that's gold. They're all like pendants, though the air totem at one point ended up as a wrist cuff.

If anyone comes across a black stone in a silver pendant, that one was mine. Please avoid touching it.
