I'm gonna be a Real Published Game Designer! A friend and I co-wrote (he did the crunch, I did the flavor text and came up with the names) a supplement for Legendary Games with a bunch of new monsters.

Applied for a job this afternoon. (Aren't online applications grand?) Go me!

I made my first excursion into Deadpool fanfiction! Pretty AU and possibly a bit OOC (although characters in multi-creator serial media like comic books are often portrayed in very different ways at different points in their history, so you could say it's within the usual margin of error apart from DP being a woman and Sam Wilson's cousin), but I had a lot of fun writing it.

Everybody talks about Social Justice Warriors, but a movement with no healers or nukers is not going to be much good at getting things done. Party balance is important, people!

Using Pathfinder classes because that's what I know bestCollapse )

My gnome sorcerer (fey bloodline, focused on enchantments and status effects) was just getting to the point where all the shepherding you have to do to keep arcane casters alive and useful at low levels was really paying off, and then she fell out of a flying castle and got burnt up by the castle's irate owner's pet dragon. Dangit, I had plans for that girl! She never even got to use her tricked-out Terrible Remorse spell.

If anyone's interested, I'm on twitter at https://twitter.com/sarenraesaves
I don't plan on making it my primary blogging platform because I am not that concise, so I'll probably be using it for little off-the-cuff things.

I did get to see The Force Awakens, although we wound up catching an evening show. I enjoyed it, but I think if it went back to the inspirations of the earlier movies (wuxia, fairy tales and mythology, diesel-era scifi serials) rather than relying so much on callbacks to earlier parts of the saga, it might have been a richer experience. Also I think it overplayed the Earth Shattering Kabooms a bit.
In such a nostalgia-driven movie, Kylo Ren the Vader fanboy was a nice meta touch.

It's snowing, I have a hot drink, and I might go see Star Wars this afternoon if the roads are clear enough. I'm having a pretty good day.

Is talking about your brain like a separate entity mostly a non-neurotypical thing, or does everybody do it?

If you get a chance to see Sholay and you're not terribly squeamish about cinematic violence, I highly recommend it. It's great fun. I've heard it described as "India's The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly", but apart from being a very long Western-influenced (as in the genre) movie where the male leads are a couple of rogues, it didn't really have the same feel to me. The overall tone was less cynical, Veeru and Jai actually liked each other, and there were more musical numbers and not quite as many epic shots of scenery.
