Xanathars Guide to Tables

The Xanathar peers upon his pet goldfish.
This review was turned into a 5 minute video. Xanathars Guide to a Bunch of Shit

I waxed for four hours about all sorts of shit.  Chiefly among them was "Xanathars Guide to Everything" and what I thought of it.

It is a different sort of book then I assumed it would be; certainly a lot thinner then I assumed a 'book about everything' would be.

What I was really surprised about, is the stark...

Good sessions and getting better!

That which you are seeking...

These last two sessions have been quite good!

Although, I need to not eat during game. One of my worst pet peeves and I'm guilty as shit.

Jessica stated last week that she would be absent for a Friday as she was attending a 'Christmas Party.' Personally I think it'd have made more sense to have it this coming week given it'll be December 1st but whatever.

Watching these last few, I feel like we have a good table chemistry. I need to chill a bit, focus more in moving the story and less on describing a current point. I end up repeatedly trying to continue the scene...

Did someone steal the fog juice?

Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 12:19

I am Dooley's disappointment.

I am Dooley's inspiration.

I am Dooley's revenge.

I am Dooley's smaug.

So while folks may not have realized it, I made my own fog juice. After Curtis stole my store bought shit, he unwittingly set me on a path of discovery, and upon that path I learned how easy it is to make not just fog juice, but the thickest, whitest, chokingest fog that you never wanted in a closed environment. In case...

Another Friday comes

Drowning in days

So another Friday comes fast upon me and I unfortunately haven't had a chance to clean up the garage. Such a mess.

I need more shelves, or even building a shelving system to better hold the bits I keep close, as well as the bits that accumulate.

I've got all of my plans set for tomorrows session, such that any direction we go in, be it explorative, political, or combative, I'm prepared.

The longer the campaign goes, the higher the levels of the characters, and the more difficult it becomes to ensure they all stay focused within a story that keeps them engauged.

Harmon Quest

Dan Harmon ladies and gentlemen

So in addition to Star Trek Discovery, The Orville, Red Letter Media's weekly releases, my own stream and The Grand Tour, I've recently consumed Dan Harmon and Spencer Crittenden's creation, Harmon Quest.

So what can I say about Harmon Quest that hasn't already been said? I dunno because I haven't read or watched a lot of content ABOUT Harmon Quest.

The first episode where it seems like Harmon Quest is a real success is season 2's episode 7. It's the first episode where it seems like Dan wrote his introduction prior to the show starting (instead of uncomfortably attempting...

Insert large type title here

Pure waffle game

So the bot has been 'fixed' ...again. This time around I blew away the database and started fresh, transposing the old points tables to the new database for the latest stable version of the bot.

Points commands seem to work again. In addition to this, we have some new commands that I set up for viewers. If these are abused, I will have to rethink them, but for the time being, the audience now has reactions!

!good, !boo, !cheer and !laugh are now implemented as gif responses with associated sounds. There's also !bananaphone if you need to get a hole of me.

I want to...

The real update

Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 17:41

After watching through the episode I caught the moment when my train of thought was derailed and I lost the point of Laramus' monologue.

Regardless, I remembered it and have made several other notes to continue the main and side stories.

In short, Laramus was going to state that the dwarves remains in the cave should be a concern, the phylacteries should be sought and destroyed, and the west road is going to present many challenges.

Meanwhile, the challenge of providing a story line that involves everyone is continuously more and more difficult, especially given that...

Great session of RP

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 17:49

Last Friday was a great session of role play.

The doctor says if I take 180mg a day I should see a cease to the bleeding.

I'm burnt out on work and am actively trying to get more done.

I'm going to the gym less and less and it's depressing.

I bought the LOTR collectors trivial pursuit and gave away the game but kept the miniatures.

I've consumed the entirety of Rick & Morty.

I've watched 2/3rds of the session and made several notes.

Next Friday should be great.

Thanks for watching :)

Good session

storytelling :D  take a look, it's in my head.

So last night went off well. My only regret being the lack luster ending given I was sure the Lagos was in fact involved in the beginning and I'm holding to that canon. That being said, the airship is on its way home now.

Although I imply the wealth and influence that the families have amidst and without one another, I don't really have a record of it, and I worry about jumping the shark as far as how powerful or capable the families are.

Regardles, last night was a nice smooth adventure involving the members as they traversed between the mountain ranges saving a small city...

XP Fairy fixed

Friday, September 1, 2017 - 11:12

Forgot to mention last night, I've fixed some glitches with the fairy.

Points will now decrement properly when folks are throwing down on each others injections. Seems I forgot to put that line of logic in. *ahem*

Cost is checked to ensure it's a number, to prevent the NaN appearing as injection amount. Instead the fairy will remind folks of the format by which to submit injections.

Smaug has been revised. I no longer control the start of the cheer, the viewers do. It starts when someone declares !smaug, and ends in 30 seconds. Everyone in the cheer is in the...
