I AM TOTALLY RELAXED

July 13th, 2009 (11:27 pm)
current song: "Anxiety Control Training", Some Doctor

So since last I posted there's been all kinds of business going on at Stately Rakshasa Manor.

My last post was, what, 31 weeks back. Back then, Cathy was 8 weeks pregnant.
Now, Cathy is 39 weeks pregnant. Baby is due Any Moment ... Now.
Nope, nothing. Well - maybe nothing.
I've been told to "treat every day at work like it was my last" - whatever that means. The point is, baby will come though we know not the day nor the hour. I shall try and actually get something up here when baby arrives - maybe a family picture, who knows? Maybe even update my Facebook profile.

I am calm. CALM.

My Goals, In Fact, Never Were Realistic

July 13th, 2009 (09:20 pm)
current location: Home
current song: "Life in a Northern Town", Dream Academy

Anyway. I've been away. On my account it says I haven't updated this thing in 31 weeks, and I'm willing to bet it's been a heck of a while longer than that since I've done anything worthwhile.
So, what am I doing back? Well, more or less, it's part of what it's been suggested I do by my Occupational Therapist. I said I really want to write again, and part of that has been to start a blog.
Not this blog, for the record. I think of this more as a "Journal" than a "blog". The thing with the blog is that it is entirely related to RPG writing and RPG-related material, rules, and so on. At the moment (because if you tell me to do something february, I do it in July) it only contains about three posts, and it will probably not get updated that frequently in the future.
Anyway,here it is. I can't say if everyone (if indeed there is anyone) who reads (actually, read - past tense) my journal will like it, but it's there if you want to read it.
Coming up next: Personal stuff!

Idea I Had Last Night

November 28th, 2008 (07:37 pm)

FACT: I need new icons. Badly.

Anyway, the idea.

TRANSFORMERS: THE BRONZE AGE

The Stallion-Breaking Iliobots, led by OPTIMUS PRIAM, are locked in battle with the Long-Haired Achaeocons, led by the Maniacal AGAMEMNOTRON. But are they merely tools of the Olympitrix STRATOZEUS, son of UNICRONUS, whose alternate mode is thunder?

That's pretty much it, as far as it goes. I'm certain Agamemnotron turns into a black-hulled ship, and Optimus Priam turns into some sort of chariot, strong-axled and lashed to powerful mares who have run hard on Lycia's high hills.
Wine-dark sea optional.

The Littlest Hitcher

June 26th, 2008 (12:05 pm)

So I'm off work today to go to the doctor's (but not the DOCK-TOHR). Just spotted on the way through from the kitchen was Tasha, sitting in her chair, and doing some sort of evil knees-up to the tune of "Oye Como Va" by Carlos Santana.

She told me she was the Mighty Boosh.

Going About It All Vong

May 14th, 2008 (10:54 pm)

Now, I'm not the biggest fan of the Star Wars expanded universe. I will, however, concede that some of the Star Wars stuff outside of Proper Canon (the films, Battlefront II) can be cool. The same, sadly, cannot be said of the Yuuzhan Vong. Now, they've got their problems, and they are many, but a lot of it can be explained by realising that they're based on a bunch of unused concepts from non-starter 2nd Edition AD&D campaign settings (Dark Sun) and much the work of notorious Drow-fetishist R.A. Salvatore who NEVER REPLIED TO MY EMAILS ABOUT THE SPOW, WHAT ARE YOU TOO GOOD FOR US NOW?
Anyway, to smooth over the fact that they are space drow, they also incorporate a little bit of Spelljammer's technology and they made them look like orcs.

I like to imagine them actually coming out of a Star Wars RPG session - I can see Pete DMing, Mike and Tony playing their Twi'lek con artists and Trandoshan bounty hunters and whatnot, and Phil comes in asking to play a character from a previous campaign. Pete's not paying attention and so things go well until there's a fight, blasters are drawn, and Phil's all "I quaff a potion of Giant Strength and ready my keen longsword +3!"
At that point, you either politely mesh it in or just pause and say, "I think I'm going to need to see your character sheet".

Not sure where that's going. It's late and there's a cat.

AZZ KIKR

May 5th, 2008 (11:08 pm)

You know, it's all my friends list seem to be talking about these days is Iron Man, Iron Man, who can do whatever an Iron can, and such. Well, I'll tell you that I wasn't exactly queueing up in costume to watch Robert Downey Jr. hammer back the scotch and fight the evil as the bodyguard of billionaire industrialist and defence contractor Anthony Stark, but we did queue up in costume to get our tickets for one of the most awesome spectaculars you'll ever see.



I admit I think the costumes may have been a bit much, and Tom looks very little like M.C. Gainey, but the only comments we got were from people who were cross about Natasha's Ving Rhames outfit.

No Man Escapes His Fett

April 27th, 2008 (07:19 pm)

Hrm. Can I not post a poll anymore?

Anyway, on to the point. Boba Fett: Awesome or irritating?

Answers in the comments, please, as well as a for why. I will permit Expanded Universe rationales on this one, as much of Fett's pervasive presence comes from the Expanded Universe, giving one the impression that Bo'Shek the Rockabilly Spacer cannot but open his fridge without finding Fett, helmet off, hunched on the top shelf and eating his chicken, getting his jetpack all in the potato salad.

So, to recap. Fett: Yes or no?
