Still here and still alive
Still in the process of getting signed up for the new semester up at FSU, albeit mostly at the last minute. I'm not proud of it, but I'm not afraid to admit that I'm a pretty crappy student... Ran into my cousin Shy during a brief stint up at the campus on Tuesday, though. I haven't seen her in almost 4 years, at the funeral of my grandmother Maxine. We only talked for a second or two. It was weird.
In unrelated news, writing continues at the Book n Bean, although I really don't have anything substantial enough to share with anyone at this point other than what you've already seen. I'm trying to get one thing done at a time and not just work on whatever I feel like.
For the none of you besides me who's an L5R fan, I've got a snippet of a conversation on AIM from earlier...MythicFox:
Oh, switching topics back for a moment, I meant to tell you... nothing fabulous and Tainty in the packs I found except for a copy of Lessons of Pain.NCtPtI:
 I'm not familiar with that one.MythicFox:
It's an Action from Web of Lies. http://www.l5rsearch.com/images/cards/Lessons%20of%20Pain.jpgNCtPtI:
That's screwed up.MythicFox:
With Obsidian Halls of the Lost, this one reads 'Bow a personality you control: Target a card you don't like. Destroy it.'MythicFox:
Heh. And the problem is? ;-)NCtPtI:
No wonder there are so many cards like 'Destroy all Shadowlands cards in play. Rub salt in the eyes of those cards' owner. Crucify his pets. Draw a card.'NCtPtI:
Granted, that particular card hasn't been legal in awhile.NCtPtI:
Alderac decided that killing pets was more in-flavor for Lion.MythicFox:
Heh, good one.NCtPtI:
*produces 3 gold*
Trust me, that's some funny shit if you're an L5R fan.
Oh, before I get into the LARP write-up, I just wanna point out that thanks to Amanda, Before the Dawn now has a proper website!
Also, a friend of mine showed me this from a couple of years back... Spellcasting 101: Don't Try This At Home
. And then, of course, here's a little something for fans of the old Infocom text adventures.( Collapse )
Alrighty, that's it for now. Later folks.
