Re: OOC: Everything Else
Busy as fucking hell here this week again, so I can't check in terribly often.

Looks like Lenny hasn't had a chance to move along yet, either, so I'll just blame him.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Alright Lenny, thanks for posting. If you think you're going to die, you know, don't do that.

I'll try to fulfill the spirit of your posted action to the best of my ability. If it's any easier for you for the time being do you want me to put you on auto-pilot, or let the other players quickly vote on your actions (majority suggestion posted in the first 12 hours after your turn, DM decides in the event of tie or no posts), or do you prefer to keep checking in for the time being because it gives you motivation to recover faster?

And good luck!

If things are holding on me, just NPC me for the round.  Keep things flowing for the rest of players.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Being on-site for work in the week and also being on-call for support == $$ cash money $$ == no time for game updates :/


Hopefully I can update tomorrow night when I'm home again!

Re: OOC: Everything Else
I get 90 euros after taxes every time I answer a support call, plus overtime hours for the time it takes to fix it.

The record for number of calls in one week is 7.


I have just gotten off of the phone with my eighth. Keep in mind it's 2am here, and I can't knock back beers like I might normally because I've got to be sitting around waiting to be called. Guys, this fucking week. Fucking shit. Sorry I haven't moved us along, but god damn. Hopefully assholes keep calling me tomorrow when it's double time instead of just overtime.


I'm back in france next week, but like I said, I won't be on call.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Ended up with 12 calls. Good money, no weekend.

And remember when your DM said that the next week would be less busy? hahahahah, no.

These bastards at this facility are constantly messing shit up and calling me when I'm in the hotel room.

Everyone gains 100 EXP while the DM spends his Friday night and Saturday morning playing civilization 6.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Okay, 38 hours of Civ VI under my belt now. I don't know whether I just like it, or I love it.

The next time I am at my computer for any length of free time, we'll move forward. Actually, I've had a nearly-done post sitting in my browser for days now.

Mail your DM booze and he'll post more. Just sayin'.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
That sounds like my first few days of Dark Souls 3 level of playtime... I'm 3 boss fights away from Platinum-ing that game, and I don't even own a PS4, or it. Now the dlc is out and I might be able to piggyback my friend's copy on that too...

Re: OOC: Everything Else
I have now been able to exploit some pretty hilarious deficiencies in the AI of this version of civilization.

Unfortunately, I've been doing 10+ hours per day for work.

Fortunately, I've been enough of a grumpy fuck to demand to be paid for this time. The 40 hours as normal, plus 10 more hours of time and a half, plus another ~6 hours on the weekends = alright paychecks, even with the (average) european wage being total shit compared to US wages.


If any of you want to take over supporting a dairy powder production facility in Australia, or a cheese factory in Germany, let me know.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
I have worked about 20 overtime hours per week for the past two weeks.

Some nutrient powder warehouse + ecommerce place near Birmingham.
A factory that produces steering columns in northern france.
Some dairy powder bag production facility in Australia.

Tomorrow morning, I leave toward back home for the Thanksgiving holiday. I'll be in the U.S. for two weeks. I'll only have my cell phone. If you're in Nashville, TN, Indianapolis, IN, or NYC, we'll be within a dozen miles of so of one another.


So, anyways, the slow pace isn't as fun as it otherwise would be, but so it goes in play-by-post sometimes.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Guys, I'm still regaining speed, and between the player swap, being hospitalized for better part of two months, and various things, I've really lost connection with a bunch of games, including this one.  DM, please feel free to assign Lenny to whatever NPC role works :)

Tes, thanks for stepping in on the game, appreciate your hard work keeping it going.

Folks, it's been fun, and I wish you all the best in future gaming.  Take care!

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Hope you are holding up ok, Lenny! Take care of yourself first.

As for the game itself, I think I'm going to step out as well. I've had to do quite a bit IRL for the holidays myself, but the rate of play is much too slow for me to hold an interest, let alone remember what is happening in game. I wish everyone the best and hope the adventuring remains fun.

In reply to Yulina Dontarrio (msg # 206):

You son of a bitch!

All that time I spent talking to you I could have spent on the game instead :p

Best of luck.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
So we have Oren, Belkin, and Bryn.

Okay. We'll push on with that when I get a chance.


This week I'm going to be getting a lot of overtime hours.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
My girlfriend and I are breaking up!

Wooohoo. We just bought a house together this year. Super fun stuff.

But seriously, that's happening, and it's not that bad, it was mutual. She wants kids soon, I don't, I want to move back to the U.S. in the next few years, she doesn't. Time to stop wasting each others' time.


But yeah, still traveling a shit ton for work at the moment.

Don't be surprised, though, if over christmas, or some night, I finally update when I can find a moment to sit around and relax with my laptop.

I'm sorry to hear about your stress, my friend.    Take your time and take care of yourself.
It sounds like you made the right decision

Yeah, walking away mutually is probably the best way those can end, real shame after all the headaches that house was >.>

And the decision when to have, or not have, children is far too important to not agree on
