Mom, in case you're reading my prattle, courtesy of Marc Miller, the Administrative staff of the COTI, and an annual stipen of a few American dollars every year, here are some demonic Dungeons and Dragon's memories. Facsimilie of demon --->

Role Playing Games are a far cry from War Simulations, but are akin to one another in that both have extended rule sets to simulate "real aspects" of real world interaction, such as combat.

My first introduction to Dungeons and Dragons was in ...More Read More

Designed to give the infantry anti-vehicular firepower.

The line troop should not have the FGMP. But one or two in a squad is great for taking out hard targets.
Not according to LBB4:

Tech level 14: A higher proportion of the infantry is equipped with battle dress, and the standard small arm for such troops becomes the PGMP-13.
Tech level 15: Most infantry is by now equipped with battle dress and has converted to the
FGMP-14. The gauss

Ah, kicking back in the old home with my feet on the desk, looking out at blue skies as the sun reflected the lagoon water into my old office with a gentle breeze. It puts a smile on my face.

The only thing better than a tall cool glass of Chocolate Milk, is a tall glass of iced cold pressed Apple Juice. Maybe some chips maybe a slice of pizza or something on the side, and just vegging out as the clouds moved by.

That's when I just blanked out and enjoyed the day, or some really roc ...More Read More

So, I think the first Adventure Seed I posted was about a bronze age world populated by natives that are essentially yard high intelligent Opposums being exploited by a megacorporation. However I can't remember whether the title was simply allegorical (the megacorporation promising heaven on Earth with advanced technology in exchange for slave labor and wages), or whether I had an actual cult created by the megacorporation to better control the hapless Tilans.

This really bugs me. I jot ...More Read More

  #564 New June 11th, 2019 12:13 AM
I was pounding away furiously all last night on the keyboard, and a thought occurred to me, the house used to smell like pine before either my neighbor or the gardeners planted whatever they did outside the office window. A culmination of those plants, the insecticide, whatever plastic or rubber is in the closet, and I'm guessing the soap scent from nearby, has created this really obnoxious odor. I'm thinking I'm going to rip out those plants. I'm in a forested area and prefer the scent of ...More Read More

  #563 New June 10th, 2019 04:58 PM
So apparently the infamous office odor is a combination of the Ant-Be-Gone insecticide I sprayed some weeks back, and some rubber or plastic in the closet. I'm too lazy to go diving in there, but I swear I had everything sealed up in a storage bin. And moreover why the heck is rubber or plastic going bad to create such a reek? It's made it nearly impossible to work in here without the fan going and the window open. I want to get into a real writing binge like I had planned, but, well, if ...More Read More

So, I just had a marathon all night game get thrown ostensibly by a female cosplayer dressed up as Freddy Kruger in her profile. This person deliberately blocked paths of attack, and essentially just threw the game. I've forwarded their profile onto Steam.

In either 1998 or 1999 I was at, and ventured into the forums, being an old Trek and SFB fan. I wandered into a thread addressing the Tholian homeworld, or rather its base, or the base that protected the homeworld in the Milky Way (not the Tholians home galaxy).

A few issues; in the old designer's edition (possibly the zip lock edition too, though I'm not sure) a planet was said to be able to have up to a number of ground bases (a full starbase) for each hex side. Appare ...More Read More

  #560 New June 7th, 2019 09:54 AM
Apparently JetSmarter is up for sale for 20 million, and is under investigation by the FAA and FBI. I don't earn millions. Personally I don't see myself as being worth millions. I will not generate millions for any company. Ergo, I'll probably not be using Lear Jets in the immediate future.

And given the cost of $18k to $5k an hour to ride one of these things, I think it's safe to say that the jet set life style is out of my realm. And even if I had bazillions of dollars (to keep weal ...More Read More

Is about colonizing Mars, or mankind reaching out for colonization beyond Earth. At least that's my take. Trek was about inspiring young minds to get into science and security, maybe medicine. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was about inspiring young minds to fight invaders. Old Lost in Space was about accepting or critiquing alternative fringe culture and how it challenged the family.

I guess none of these shows, in retrospect, was just about telling a good story for the sake of it. ...More Read More
