Tor settled into the tavern for the evening.  He had heard of the oppressive nature of Thuldrin Kreed and was in search of inspiration to deal with the brute.  Thus, he turned to the one place that he was most comfortable.  "Barkeep, an ale please."  After a decent mug of ale - he suspected it might be watered down to up Kreed's profits, but couldn't be sure - he heard tell of the sickness that had been spreading among the populace.  "Miss, some stew and another ale, if you please."  She seemed younger than most barmaids but she might be of age.  At least he hoped so seeing the eyes of so many men upon her.

As he ate the surprising good stew and appreciated a better mug of ale, he turned his thoughts to the disease.  Oppression by a disreputable man will linger, 'tis true.  But oppression by disease is something else.  The folk could rise up if need be against Thuldrin; however, they are hard pressed to revolt against something they can not see.  With a nod more to himself than anyone else, Tor resolved to do see what his might and soul could do for the cause of healing this village.

That decided, he asked, "Miss, does the owner of this good house allow tabs or does he require that men pay their due?"  He has a coin in hand to show that he is not in need of the credit.

Will this be the OOC thread and the other an IC ?  Also, fwiw, I was going to use http://orokos.com/ for rolls unless someone has a better suggestion (invisiblecastle seems to have lots of problems)

As of now, IC is back up and running.

Great... Koala got into the Vault again.

Someone get the spatula.

I thought we changed the combination on that vault ... and upped the biometrics.  Or was that section 4?

I'm a fan of Batman but this was too much fun to pass up on.

Say it with me: "It's just a day trip. It's just a day trip."

I actually looked at it and discussed it with the wife but it's not gonna happen.  Thanks for the invite though.  If you make it down to Houston some time, let me know.

Though it was a comedian who said it, there's some truth to this: cats were worshipped in ancient Egypt as gods. We may have forgotten but they have not.

"That does seem to be a good opening.  Were we are voting, that would be my choice."

Lars smiled.  "Not that I don't enjoy a good fight but I'm getting used to this stealthy approach."  He then kneels and offer a prayer on behalf of the Knot dedicating their battle to his master.

Here's an interesting video from CGP Grey about thought germs and their dangers.  It makes sense in context.

What I found interesting was the end of the video where he talks about the self reinforcing nature of the thought germs.

I'm close enough I could drive to TwisterCon were it not for pesky RL responsibilities like work and a wife and children.  None-the-less, I'm glad to hear some news; I'm liking what I'm hearing.

Been lately preoccupied with large amounts of not giving a shit, but here's a topic:
http://news.yahoo.com/feds-abandon-plan-ban-popular-rifle-ammo-175810302--politics.html

AP ammo is just good fun?

It's not (legally*) AP and never was.  The feds concocted an ass-pull reason to try to declare it such so they could restrict it.  A casual reading of the law in question puts the lie to their reasoning.

* You could argue that it has some AP properties but hell, any rifle bullet going through a long barrel at short to medium range will penetrate body armor without plates.  You can't argue that the rounds in question were covered by the as-written statute.

EDIT: ninja'd by multiple folks.

Wait... That's an established genre?  Huh?

Yes, though a niche one.

Anybody else catch the premier episode of Dig on USA?

I've hit the point of boredom with the management aspects.  Not enough automation and little payout.  Am I missing more interesting options somewhere?

How can this be so addicting?
