You know, no matter how crazy life gets and how much I think I don't have time for as many games as I'm in... you guys continue to make this a wonderful experience that keeps me around.  Thanks for being patient with me, all of you.  I'll try to keep up!

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Totally agree. It can be hard playing a Wookie, but you give it a lot of flair. In fact, a month or two ago, we went to a buddie's place to try out Edge of the Empire, that new Star Wars game, and when I saw the pre-gens available I bee-lined for the Wookie so fast I got wind-burn.

I was like, "I'm gonna Juragga it up all over the place in here."

Yes, it's a nice word.  Almost as nice as "rugose".

Oh, and I think you're all doing a fantabulous job.  :)

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
I'm pretty sure I've said it before...or something to the same effect, but...this is one of those extremely rare games where the chemistry just works.  The players get along, the characters mesh well, the GM keeps the story engaging but not overwhelming...

When I moved away from home a decade and a half ago, I all but gave up on roleplaying games, because the groups I was in there (basically, all the same group, just rotating who was running which game) had such great chemistry that it didn't matter what we were playing, we had a great time.

This game has me almost ready to gamble on it again, just for the fact that this game has proven that my earlier group wasn't a totally unique situation...that the 'magic' can happen again, somewhere else.

Thanks for that, everyone.  You really have no idea how much it means to me, and I don't think I could ever effectively express it fully.

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Thanks guys!  BIG WOOKIEE HUG!! :D

It's a huge compliment.  Playing a Wookiee can be challenging, but they're a race I have interest in and like, so I do my best.  On the table, I've played them and actually tortured mi compadres with Wookiee imitations/noises... you guys just have to settle for my typed attempts! ;)

A game only gives what it gets.  This one is getting and giving a lot - thanks to you all!

Good times!

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Totally agree with all of the above (even the too busy part!) and would have done so long ago, save for the fact that I'm currently on vacation!  Ironically, this means posts will be sporadic and short, but I'll keep dropping in!  :D

This group is great.  It's hard to find a group online that not only has the chemistry, but also sticks it out (PBP being notorious for having stuff die).  Thank you all for being here!

*hugs Juragga right back*

And now I have 'I'm going to Juragga the place up' going through my head like a bad rap song...  ^_^

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
So had a mild heart attack at the weekend (my first ever), and spent most of the last three days in hospital.  All fixed up, fitted with a metal reinforcing structure in a coronary artery, and home again.

Also issued with enough nitroglycerine to make me the life and soul of any party.  :D

Currently trying to catch up with the backlog of games...

Holy shite, Boss!

Sorry to hear it, glad you're doing better now.  Don't rush on the game, real life comes first!

Holy crispy crap! A heart attack!

Take care, Big Man. No rush. This is just a game. You mind yourself and get healthy.

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Glad to hear your first coronary event was mild...that's how my dad passed away...had a huge heart attack...took them almost twenty minutes AFTER they got him to the hospital to get his heart beating again.  Two minutes later, he had another heart attack.

Don't go impersonating Dad on this one, okay?

My god, Ron.  Please, take care of yourself!

*hugs*

I'm so sorry!  And I'm sorry I've been away, and haven't seen this before now.

...and thanks for making the rolls for what I was going to blow a force point on.  But honestly, not important by comparison to the health issues!

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
I'm feeling a little shocked, still.

Everyone, if you have Netflix, please watch Forks Over Knives.  I'm not pushing an agenda with this, I'm just worried about everyone's health.  As Ron knows, there has been cancer all around me for the last year - so many people I know, and people known by people I know.  And heart attacks as well.

Or, you know, laugh at me for printing this, or tell me to mind my own business.

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
I was an undiagnosed diabetic for a few years until I finally got screened.  As a former athlete it was a real shock. Fortunately one of my best and oldest friends is not only a doctor, but a doctor with a specialty in diabetic medicine.  So yeah, I have had to utterly change most of my eating habits, which is always a challenge.

So no, I'm not laughing!  And I will watch that film when I can get to it.  It's never a bad thing to be concerned for people. Your heart is in the right place!

The combination of desperation and mainlining Lightsabre Dueling makes Shard a little snappish.  :)

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Wait, Shard? Do we even have our commlinks? Why haven't we answered Rhijans yet?

Also, I would totally watch a Star Wars spinoff called Rhij and Rags.

Just saying.
