While I don't usually need to search through the OOC thread, I suppose I could have it stop annoying everyone by telling them we're over the 1000 post limit, eh?

(And I do sometimes look back for the time you called me a MENACE.  Because it makes me smile.  Fortunately, that's in the OOC-before-last, which is still searchable.)

Hello, I am the new and improved Maranwe Silverleaf.

I have already been told if Finger's fingers do some walking I can cut them of and use them as french fries for Orken.

I hope to read over the past threads to get a sense of the character better so to hope that in character there should not be to much difference.

IC I figure Baik is motivated mostly by killing the Rahib.

OOC I'd hate to leave Infithe's player with nothing to do while we go run off and track him down. Not much role playing to do as an inanimate statue.

Of course, it is the hard roles that bring out the skill and excellence of an actor. Maybe we'd be doing her a favor.

No, seriously ... of course even OOC I have no clue how to get her changed back.

I'm with Infithe.  The last Lurker said that, too, and we all believed him.  Then the disappearances started.  Oh, sure, at first, we thought it was just RL interference.  Then we guessed maybe solar flares or something interfering with their net.  Towards the end, I remember, we were thinking maybe they'd all been eaten by giant radioactive hedgehogs.  But then... we discovered the horrible, horrible truth!

If I remember right, it turned out we'd been right the first time.  I don't really remember where I was going with this.  Anyway, hi! wave

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
The damage for everyone's weapons should be on their character sheets.  Scroll down to a boxed area named "Combat", then look under Melee or Ranged for the appropriate weapon and dice.

The line for the weapon will tell you the damage for that weapon, plus any "to hit" or damage bonuses due to Strength, Dex, or the weapon itself (which saves you from having to scroll up to examine your character's stats).

Aye, I know what the damage is for a 2H-sword, I just didn't know if I needed to roll it for hitting one of dem ballz. Though why I didn't just roll it anyway I'm not sure.

Maybe I'm becoming a pacifist.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Let's say from here on out that if you roll "to hit", you go ahead and roll damage too, and that way the roll is there if I need it.  :-)

I always feel like I'm shortchanging you guys when I roll because the roll is always something pathetic.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
How about if instead of rolling to-hit, we just roll damage and go from there?  Then there's no confusion at all!  In fact, we could just skip the damage rolls, and cut right to victory!  Or better yet, we could just go straight to the "Precious Gemstone" value chart and make all of our rolls there!

Then, I could dot all of my exclamation marks with diamonds.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Can I just mention to the Alhasial group that I did something rather stupid?  I have, essentially, forgotten a hallway that should be on your map.  Like, one you'd have walked through to get where you are.  Like one that was plainly obvious on the map, and for some reason, I didn't sketch it in on the player version.

I've now added it to the combat map -- it's the long corridor between where Infithe is tethered, and where you are now.

Its description, as you would've seen it, if I'd remembered it was there:

    The dark corridor is thirty feet long.  The pair of bronze doors you entered are mirrored on the far end by a pair of steel doors.  The other walls -- the longer ones -- each have a single wooden door set into them, each reinforced with bands of iron.

I just looked and it was there -- forced a refresh and it came up for me then too.  If forcing a refresh doesn't work for you (shift + refresh/reload), try PMing me your traceroute to www.arcadia.net, which is where my map is hosted.

Another player told me yesterday that they couldn't reach the website, which is very weird.  It should be pretty accessable.

Yeah! The map is back.

Now to clarify my understanding of what we've done.

I see four unopened doors.

Two in the room that Infithe is headed toward and two in the hallway we just walked past without bothering to open. How stupid of us.

So, who is going to open what door?

I'm trying to compose an action for Baik, but I'm a bit lost on what everyone is doing and whether we have a plan here.

There are actually six unopened doors:  There are two sets of double doors in each of the rooms to either side of where Infithe fell prey to the trap, so four doors there, and then a single wooden door to either side of the hall between where Infithe is and where I last left the party.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes. I'm back this early for two reasons.

My wife's contract is set up by sessions (I said 'wife'!), and won't allow her to take time off during a session. It turned out she had to work this week.

The second reason is that we're getting married twice.

Our first marriage is more North American style, and we wanted to get married in Canada (where we live and have citizenship), so we had that kind of wedding here.

However, her family is Bengali, so we're having a second wedding in Chicago (where her parents and grandparents are - her grandparents aren't well enough to travel) that will be more Bengali-style. That's happening on the July 3-4 weekend. We're taking more time off after that. It also means I will be away again soon for a short time. I think my absence will cover July 2-8, but I'll figure it out for certain soon.

If you haven't, I say go for it!  We tried our door on the northern side of the corridor, and there turned out to be a sleeping elf maiden on the other side.  Now all of the elf men are gathering around to stare.  All in all, one of our most successful door openings in our whole adventure, really.

Second, of course, to that barred door in the prisons earlier.  I'm not sure which side of the corridor it was on, though.  Could well have been north!  And I'm not positive, but as I picture it, I'm pretty sure the doorway Infithe went through that turned out to be so profitabl--terrible, I mean, simply dreadful, was to the south!  Our DM might just have a subconscious pattern we can exploit!

You mean he got turned into instant treasure? Just doing a quick bit of figuring, so with an adult male wearing armour and equipment, that's gotta be at least 200 pounds in weight. 200 pounds of platinum is... let me see here ... 10,000gp worth of treasure! What a haul!

So, umm, are you going to turn him back or, ah, be little more morally flexible about it? ;)

Wait, wait, wait. A human made of flesh weighs 200 pounds, but platinum is a good bit more dense than human flesh. He has to weigh significantly more than 200 pounds now.

Let's get our facts straight before we start talking about moral flexibility.

Of course...this appears to be mysterious floating platinum, so we're actually probably talking about...hmm...it doesn't like go crashing to the ceiling, so not a lot, maybe, like, negative five pounds or so...hm...

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Maybe we could cut off some of the bits that he doesn't use.  They'd still be worth money, even if the rest of him gets turned back to flesh and bone (or just a heap of squishy stuff).

Even if some of the more obvious bits that a cleric might not use probably wouldn't be worth much money, other parts would be more valuable.  For example, has anybody ever seen him do anything with his left arm or hand?  I'm sure he always dragged one foot when walking too, so he probably wouldn't miss a leg.

Hey guys,

Just a heads-up that, as of Friday, I'll be gone for nearly two weeks. We're heading south on this coming Friday to attend a wedding in Baltimore, and will be heading to Chicago and staying there until a couple of days after the afore-mentioned second wedding. I'll be back on the boards on July 8, I believe. I gave our DM the heads-up, and asked him to NPC me to use as he wishes until I return. I hope this makes for smooth gaming in my absence.

Well...I'm not sure we've explored and mapped this entire buried tower well enough to say with any kind of certainty that there's no other way after the Rahib.  But this is the way we are, generally speaking, sort of pretty sure that he probably might have gone.

Honestly, though, I propose that we forget about the Rahib, and start up Tanindara's Tower Tours.  If we `lose' just one tourist every, say, month or so, we'll soon be rolling in enough platinum to buy Ildrulf almost any sister he might want!

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
And what's wrong with Errol Flint or Hairy Sunforge ?  What are you implying ?

Some notes on the Dwarvish Psyche which might prove helpful to you:

We should make it QUITE clear that Dwarfs do not hate Elves.
In fact they abhor, loathe, despise and revile them, and each and every day
wish upon them no end of nastiness in bloodcurdling threats and oaths, but
basically they'd miss them if they weren't there.

As has been noted, other races tend to view Dwarfs as staid and unfriendly,
but it can be revealed, here, for the first time, that there is a tragic,
underlying cause to this only too true fact: there is, in the genetic makeup
of each and every dwarf, a deficiency in a certain chemical in their bodies,
a chemical which can only be found in alcohol. And it is for this reason and
no other, that your average Dwarf not only has a craving for the amber fluid,
but also becomes FAR more sociable after knocking back enough ale to put an
elephant on his ear for a week.

Finally, no treatise would be complete were we not to look at the Dwarvish
fascination with precious metals and gems.  Put simply, your average Dwarf
looks at it this way: "Everything that comes from below the ground belongs
to us, and woe betide anyone who tries to steal it away from us !"

It's not called a "Mine" for nothing, you know.

Um, argh!  I forgot I hadn't responded here.  And I have to go make dinner now.  So think of this as a placeholder.  If I don't reply for Tanindara soon, anybody but Quanfinigon can poke at me.

Or Orken.

Or Lendor, Fingers, and Baik.  And Sularius better watch it - I saw that post.  Ildrulf, I'll totally tell your sister if you do anything!

So, um, if I don't reply for Tanindara soon, then...Infithe...can poke at me.  Lightly.  Provided she stays sufficiently far from...well, anything I consider valuable.  So.  Hm.  Um.  How about if I just post IC soon?  I think that could work.

The Goddess of Six Year Old Girls Skipping On A Pleasant Spring Afternoon.


Not to be confused with Humdididum, the Goddess of Six Year Old Girls Skipping At A Quarter Past Six Of A Warm Spring Evening Even Though Their Mothers Are Calling Them In To Dinner.  A dark one, that, who corrupts many of Tralalalala's followers, leading them along her twisted path of chores undone and incomplete homework...a path paved with the very souls of well intentioned older brothers.

You can find all her stats on page 232 of Deities and Hemisemidemigods, if you have the first printing.  Later printings, of course, had to remove the entire Early Elementary Pantheon.

See?  Some of those minor gods are very easy to mix up.  You're confusing Arweethuryet - whose followers loath travel and learn Haste even if they don't have any levels at all - with Duntmakmetirnthyskarraround.  Cruelest of the Ork hemisemidemideities, Duntmakmetirnthyskarraround has a 6' long arms, each with three elbows that can bend in any direction, and he doesn't care who started it.

Don't believe him.  The leaves grow from behind their ears.  They just want you to think it's hair.  The truth is, elves never wash behind their ears.  I think they're afraid they'll stab themselves through their hand with the points if they try...

Well, clearly.  "Lendor", because the elven economy is entirely leaf-based, so apparently his family is a long line of loan sharks, and his leaves "grow" in the sense of exorbitant interest rates and cutthroat collection practices....

Well, that's true if you have a buyer, but a base metal is generally a lot easier to, you know, `move', and a lot of fences get worried if you bring in some probably-easy-to-identify piece of artwork.  I guess if I explained that, no, it's not stolen, it just used to be some friends of mine...but they probably won't let me add the 15% sentimental value anyway, so...

In fairness, though, I think it's probably best to try to respect your wishes in this.  I mean, at least you and Infithe had the decency to leave the rest of us a platinum statue.  Ildrulf just got himself vaporized or something.

Talk about "Not a Team Player."

I hope everyone had a great winter break, for whatever reason you had one :-)  I really hope everyone got one, because, really, it's a great time to sit around, drink too much, and be totally bankrupted by Steam's evil, evil holiday sales.

Happy New Year!

Hello, Jhaelin!  I'm sure you'll find us all very friendly and welcoming.  Here, you can even sit in my comfy chair!

And don't worry, Ildrulf.  I think you're OK.  DM said to say hello, which you almost did.  She didn't actually say anything about not killing it with fire, and I think we can all agree that if we weren't supposed to, that would have warranted a mention, at least.  I'll go get the kindling!

DM:

Oh!  And I see you're back, too!  That's great!  And you'll notice, I hope, that this time I'm not sitting in your chair!  Now if you can just get that Lurker to move before Ildrulf sets fire to it...

Oh, I daresay the first thing our new lurker noticed was the two extremely valuable and attractive floating planinum statues, so I'm sure our kind DM will mark us down as having participated in the kill, if only as decoys.

One day, the gracious DM may allow me to create and interact within this realm of excitement with a character of me own, but for now I watch and learn each of your character's traits, habits, nuances, and behaviors for later.    LOL...

I think the problem with your group is three missing members right now -- one disappeared and two frozen solid as statues.  Until those get sorted out, things will be a little sparse, probably.  Of course there are others who could post... but perhaps fear of becoming a statue tempers them a bit.

What would that be I wonder... Becomastatuphobia?

"...reacting to the attack of the clay thing, telgareth calls out to his God to bless them in this battle against this foul creation, as he pulls his enchanted Mace from his side, Telgareth charges in with a mighty swing leading the way."

We should probably "close" that door quickly... :o)   ... and lock it until better prepared.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Hey team,

I deeply apologize for disappearing for a bit there. I received news that my contract wasn't going to be renewed at work as a result of staffing cuts. It was a real blow, because until I got that news, they had told me I was approved to be made permanent (meaning paid vacation and benefits for my family). I'd also been on a development arc for better opportunities with the organization. They just had to process the paperwork.

So for the last six weeks I've been on an aggressive job search, and fighting off the resentment and depression I feel around this reversal. And I still have to go to work until the end of my current contract - the seventh consecutive one in over two-and-a-half years of service. I wish they'd just severed me and paid out my contract, but that won't happen. My last day is September 20.

Still, I've left you guys hanging and that's not fair. I'll give Orken a bit of a spin. I have an idea to help the team in the current encounter. Orken's axe may not be able to do much, but he's very strong. We'll see what use he can make of that.

Sorry to have been so quiet.  The trip took longer than expected; connectivity there was not as promised; I got really behind on work; we're releasing an initial beta in 4 weeks, and six weeks after that the real thing, so I'm drowning on that too.

This is a long weekend however, so I'm going to use that excuse to be a bit slack with work, and try to get us all caught up here.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Got a problem with my computer at the moment, my graphics card has died, so I'm not likely to be about much until the new one arrives (which will hopefully be in just a few days).

Maybe by then somebody will have resurrected poor Ildrulf.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Right then.. ;>

The servants at the castle of the Evil Necromancer were fed up. As the whim took their Most Dread Lord and Master, Gothic gave way to Graveyard, Basic Black was replaced by a less than subtle Bone theme.  Devilish vied (as ever) with Demonic. But this latest demand, following his umpteenth viewing of the Twilight movie was the final straw. Downing paint brushes and DIY manuals, they walked out en masse, forming a picket line outside the (admittedly over-) wrought iron gates, waving their placards and singing chants begging the local and regularly visting tradesmen to join them.

Or as one of the placards read before it was torn from its holder's terrified grip by the Evil Necromancer's zombie slaves:

"BACK DECOR BAN"


Now, can anyone do anything with Bohemian Ear Spoon?  Has anyone ever had a character who even knew someone who possessed such a terrifying weapon of war?

Hey Everyone,

I've just sent a PM to the DM. (I'm a poet and I...  nevermind.) I'm withdrawing from the game. I have had too much in the way of personal and professional stuff on my plate to participate properly, and I've consequently been a cause of delay for the game. I apologise to you for this. I enjoyed playing with you, and I hope you will continue forward and have many a fun adventure here.

Signing off.

Orken.

Cripes.

All that's in my scratchpad is, "Remember the wardrobe."

...

...I don't.

What about the wardrobe?  I have no idea!  I'm not even entirely certain it was for this game, necessarily, although it probably was.  Was the wardrobe, like, surrounded by native savages? Wire hangars battling desperately to the bitter end?  Or maybe it was something with Baik, as he gently cupped her chin and whispered, "We'll always have...the wardrobe."  (If so, well, all I can say is, apparently he was mistaken.)

On the plus side, he no longer has to continue his "vengeful ghost quest" on his own.  Now he has help murdering elves in their sleep.

Apparently it wasn't very good, though, if she's getting ready to return it.

quote:
Yes, keep telling yourself that you are mid-teleport, Tan

One of the odd things about being in mid-teleport is that people in mid-teleport don't really experience the passage of time during their time in mid-teleport.  So since my last thought as I stepped back to be in mid-teleport was `Thank goodness I'm about to be in mid-teleport because in mid-teleport is such a comfy place to be', I will indeed keep telling myself that I am in mid-teleport.  Although really I'm only doing it once.

And now is a little late to realize that copying <i>in mid-teleport</i> the first time I did it so I could just paste it the rest of the times would have been nice, too.

What I hope is that Cruinne has some of those subliminal teaching tapes running like in Demolition Man, so that when I come out from in mid-teleport I'll be, like, level 30.  Teleporting straight into the Black Box!  How cool would that be?  ...Or at least suddenly super good at knitting.  I'd be OK with that.

At times like this I find it comforting to turn to Douglas Adams..

I teleported home one night
With Ron and Sid and Meg.
Ron stole Meggie's heart away
And I got Sidney's leg.

Aww, you can turn to me any time.  I'm always happy to offer a shoulder to cry on, or a helping hand.  That's just what friends do.  But absolutely, if you can't find, say, that bag of gold you're sure was in the nightstand just yesterday, you can always come to me!  We can split a bottle of champagne or something to commiserate.  My treat!

(If your towels have gone missing, don't ask me.  It was probably Lendor.  We all know how he was about Infithe and her baths.)

Yes, we turn to you, then we turn you in, see how that turns out!  Quite a treat indeed.  And if you then end up missing anything, well, all you need to to is look to yourself.  :)

What about half a Quanfinigon statue for the dwarf?  Quantity wise they'd be about the same, and platinum is probably worth more than dwarf flesh.

Or send us the dwarf, and we'll get him converted to platinum for a small fee - say half an arm.

She was just lost under the cushion on your chair.

DM:
I'm frankly amazed anyone even saw or answered my post!

Well... to be totally fair, even if we'd taken it off our Stickylist, a post would have popped it back on.  But we never have.  We never even log off of RPoL.  Or leave our computers to go do other things.  No, we just hang out here, with out PopUp Stickylist set to a 15 minute refresh, staring, hoping, always prepared!

Yep - even the statues.

...More seriously, I've had fun.  I like Tanindara.  And Ildrulf, and Infithe, and Sularius, and Baik.  I guess I don't really know Auren, but she seems nice.  Oh, er, and Quanfinigon, of course, he's... here, too*!  The slow pacing doesn't bother me at all.  Even the, like, really super slow pacing, actually, and I bet the plot is just under your cushion, too.  Frankly, Auren probably hid it there - she looks shifty like that.  You shouldn't let her back on your chair, if you ask me.

Um, right.  Moving up the seriousness-scale, if you're ready to close it up, I will miss it, but well, OK, yes, would also understand.  If you have any interest in picking it up again, though, we could probably even `skip ahead' a bit.  You know, you could just write up quickly how Tanindara's brilliant plan with the coins quickly solves the teleporter maze, and the cure-for-statuedom follows soon after, and in a matter of days the Rahib is in custody and the wedding is saved and... I'm actually pretty sure there was a Rahib and a wedding, and I'm going completely by memory here.  And then you could just start with a shiny new plot.

Also, on a personal note, Tanindara was telling me the other day, in another game, that she thinks that Quan has done some of his best RPing since he hasn't been able to talk to her.

I thought becoming a statue was a reward! Our AC certainly improved, and we're now immune to fireball, poison, disease, starvation, fatigue etc etc.  Sure, there's been a markedly increased chance of us getting stolen, but even that's better than the fleshy alternative of being kidnapped. :-)

Must confess I was even having fun as a statue, due to the sheer entertainment value of everyone else's posts and will be sorry to see the game finally vanish from my sticky list. :~(

Actually...  I mean, this really does tap onto the `seriously' scale, but both Quan and Infithe have impressed me a lot with that.  I might have said this before, even, I'm not sure.  There's that note in the ADRPG where they talk about the time Corwin's eyes get put out, and about how if it had been a game, the dedication it would have taken for him to keep coming to sessions for five years of game-time while all his character was doing was pacing around blindly in a cell, and coming out once a year for dinner.

It wasn't a game, of course, so nobody ever had to do that.

Until Infithe and Quan.

Who have both not only stayed, and kept poking in in OOC - but have actually roleplayed being statues with IC posts.

As a gamer, I really have to say, that is awesome.  So awesome I've had to break out all three emphasis codes.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I think backups are probably more Lawful than anything to do with Good/Evil.

I'm... actually pretty torn on that.  On the one hand, our current situation was kind of frustrating; on the other hand, we'd just gotten back together and found some new clues and were working out the teleporter-maze and, well, it felt like we were starting to make some progress.

But I don't know if we really were, of course, and otherwise, I have to admit that yeah - frustrating would be a fair adjective.  So I wouldn't mind if we wanted to skim through a bit to where rigor statis had set out.

Either or!

I know I have a hell of a task on this solo thing which is interesting on its own accord.
But it would be easier for all if we amalgamated into one group and pushed on from there.

Yeah, I'm torn myself.  Part of me wants to work it out.  The other parts wants to kill it with fire.

So while I figure it out and see if anyone else wants to chime in, have any of you played around much with the D&D Next materials?

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Sounds like a loaded question. <grins>

Afraid not. I find myself going the other way, working backwards from Pathfinder to D&D Original, and quite comfortable with all versions in between, so I only have idle curiosity as to whether they will be able to make a rule system that encompasses everything to date as I believe was touted.

If it helps, looking at the cast list it appears we've lost a few players from both groups (a few 2012 and prior last logins), so going with one group would give us both a core group and reduce demands on our GM both by having one group not two, and by keeping one of the game threads going to save her starting a brand new one from scratch.

Easy fix.. those poking around the magician's basement have had PLENTY of opportunities to set off a teleport trap - I *knew* that crazy strobing lighting fixture was trouble and I blame Orken! Maybe even a straight swap of active to Rahib's pleasure palace, inactive to the basement, or vice-versa?

I've got a bet both ways with a character in each group, but happy to drop one - from a practical point of view, I'm afraid that'd be the one that can't move as we also have Telgareth the actually-able-to-fight-and-pray-in-anger cleric and besides, I think Tanindara has her heart set on selling me off piece by piece! :-)

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I find myself regressing too.  I signed up for the playtest knowing full well I'd like not really be able to playtest (since they didn't originally permit the playtest materials to be played in any other way than at a tabletop), but still I had hope.

The first play packets looked pretty good -- a revamped Caves of Chaos and some pre-gens in the "gnome druid", "human monk", "elf mage", "halfling rogue" line.  I was a little bit excited.

I just got the most recent play packet and opened the character creation races section.  Blergh: dragonborn, drow, tiefling, warforged.  How so-very boring.

I don't know what's wrong with me, really. I just hate the newer races, and the idea of getting the inevitable drow-dragonborn monk-assassin-bard character pitch just makes me zone right out.

I'm probably going to end up sticking with something retro, I guess.  Some days I think I just just totally 100% resign and commit to that to the extent I start a old-school module foundry and all.

Ah... dragonborn and warforged.  :(  That's enough to turn me off the idea.

Throw drow PCs into the mix, and I pretty much become homicidal.  The drow were cool when they were the mysterious evil demon-worshipping elves that nobody knew much about.  Back when you could panic a party of adventurers just by hinting that drow might be in the area.  Then they started bringing out books about their home lives and their favourite recipes, and dressing them in weird fetish-wear, and I completely lost interest.

How is life in the B team? Over here in the A team, we've handily defeated all the monsters with only the loss of the dwarf, gotten oodles of treasure (we'd have preferred gold, but apparently the exchange rate is good), and been declared god-kings by the fawning populace.

Because of the vagaries of translation and grammatical inflection, an Elf will always assume that one of the lesser (ie non-Elf) races is in fact intending to ask a serious question, unless they're tapping themselves repeatedly on the head with a blunt instrument (preferably not one of their companions) at the time the question is posed.

He was just a piece of filth any way - not to talk ill of the departed, but...  Hmm, The Departed; this one is really good, actually:

Aren't they all?

From Witches Abroad:

Nanny Ogg: "This is Greebo. Between you and me he's a fiend from hell."
Mrs Gogol: "Well, he's a cat. It's only to be expected."

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
My favorite cat name was OGMO - O Great Maned One.  I used it for my cat in Ildrulf's game a few years ago, and I do think did the real OGMO justice.

Hehe...Witches Abroad was one of his best, I think.  "Gytha Ogg, you haven't got the morals of an alley cat."  "That's not true, Esme, and you know it."  "... Alright, you have got the morals of an alley cat."

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Yes, but it seems more the other way around when forced to suffer the company of the shorter lived races (ie everyone except other elves).

I would like to wish you all one of those Christmas things.

Aw, you're enjoying our company so much you feel time is flying when around us.  How sweet.

Yes, you bloody mean this, or I'll kick your butt even if I'm a statue.  XOXO

Also, yes, a Merry Christmas Thing to one and all.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
...And apparently I still check on those kinds of exchanges to see if you posted weirdly simultaneously.

That Christmas Thing does indeed look merry!  Thank you, Ildrulf!  I'm just enjoying this nice mug of hot cocoa with marshmallows in my super comfortable chair, which I'm pretty sure I can really just call "mine" at this point.  Although I would gladly give it back!

It's the skin tone I find impressive.  A lot of people holding those kinds of poses go for the bronzed skin, but platinum'd is really upping your game!

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Infithe - you are right of course. I do enjoy time spent around the lesser races. It reminds us elves how much better we are than them. Prevents us getting too humble.

Christmas Thing. Yes. Not what I had in mind, but I like the way you think, Ildrulf. No, not 'like'.. ah, 'am greatly disturbed by', that was the phrase I was looking for.

And shouldn't that caption be "Greets Seasonings"?

Not sure if you wrote anything beyond this, but if you did I'm certain it is irrelevant either way.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I have lots of lists.

Hats I Want.  Favorite Flavors of Hot Cocoa.  Funny Things Infithe Has Said.  Less Funny Things Ildrulf Has Said.  Things To Buy For My New Mansion After I Sell These Platinum Statues If It Comes To That Which Of Course I Hope It Doesn't.  Reasons Not To Talk To Elves.  Best Lock Picking Techniques Of 2017.

Ooh, now I have the beginnings of a List of Lists I Have!  Now, to make a list of All Lists I Have Which Do Not List Themselves...
