I'm bored so here was my one liner disconnect.

You're now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!
You: when are you going to return my sweater?

Nice, I wish I could draw. Interested in contributing some art for the NB website? A friend of mine was working on character sketches, but no results as of yet.

I'll be on tomorrow as much as possible and maybe some tonight to test the Skype situation. We recently started just recording into my mic from the laptop speakers versus the SoundTap solution. We should see what each one is like.

"I think we'll get along just fine Solar.  Myopic zealots may have their say here in the Imperium, but where we're going, the only laws are those of survival.  I'm more of a pragmatist when it comes to my ship and my dynasty.  We do what we must for the glory of our names.  I hope you see this as an opportunity that few are ever afforded rather than a mark against you.  Trust me, the freedom of the Expanse is the greatest pleasure you'll find in this universe.  Beyond any leisure planet or drug you could ever discover.  Please familiarize yourself with the Senior Staff.  We have important business to attend to."  Trask takes Solar to meet each of the senior members of the crew and facilitate introductions.

Trask reviews the papers to ensure everything is in the proper order.  "It looks as if everything checks out.  Welcome aboard the Valkyrie.  I hope your skills exceed those of the previous Navigator . . . or at least your skin thicker.  The Expanse is no place for arrogant pups who believe they are above their Captain or shipmates.  If you still believe it suits you, then you'd best prepare to face the unknown and make a name for yourself in the process."

The group's profit factor is 71, so you made some great rolls there.  You'll be pretty decked out.

The dice command is ":dice XdY:"

You don't have to put it into the code command.

What are the chances that one of the rewards would be a Skype Cthulhu game run by Aaron?  I'd donate for that in a heartbeat.

Dammit Ross, you are only feeding my desire for a Mac.  For now, I'll continue my use of WavePad Sound Editor.  I usually record in WAV 44.1khz and then save to 64kbs MP3.  I'm not sure if I have an additional compression option, but I'm not as fancy as Ross.  By they way, the king of England called and wants his audio equipment back.  Ours sounds fine enough though I think.  Though we did just have a 4 star review on iTunes because of "mic drops".  Our theory is it was the Rogue Trader game.  Always blame someone else for you inadequacy . . . TAD!

What the hell are you guys doing over there?  4 hours to encode and upload an episode seems pretty long.  You should upgrade from that 386 Ross. 

As a reference, it takes me less than an hour to edit anything out, add intro/outro, level sound, reduce the volume on a few select bits, save as MP3 from WAV, and edit ID3 tags.  (uploading can take over an hour if the interweb is going slowly)

Just wondered what else I'm missing here.  I feel like I should be doing a hell of a lot more stuff with my podcast if it's supposed to take that long.

I feel your pain Tad.  I really only play in the Rogue Trader game you run.  If you want in on a game I am running, you can jump in.  That way you at least get to play. 

I'm generally pretty tolerant of what my players do, but the thing that really gets me is they end up fighting NPCs that I planned on them negotiating with, but negotiate with NPCs that I assume they will fight.  Occasionally, I just provoke the fight either way and make it seem like they fucked up the negotiation.  The other thing that we pointed out in an Aftersession was that they were actually mad at me when I wouldn't have an NPC bend to their arguments regardless of persuasion rolls.  In the specific case, the characters captured an enemy goblin after a raid.  Imprisoned and questioned him only to find out a huge ship of goblins was coming to the colony and potentially raiding/destroying it.  They then went to sleep, woke up, sold some water to the local farmers, went to the leader of the colony, offered to sell him water, THEN told him about the impending doom.  Needless to say he was pissed and thought maybe that information was more important than selling some shit to farmers.  Some of the players were then mad that he was being suck a dick to them.  I think under the circumstances that no amount of persuasion is going to calm him down after that.  I thought it was hilarious over annoying afterward, but in the moment I was stunned that they were mad.

Ok, so here's my decision.  I'll go with Good quality on everything.  For the materials, I think it is a fairly large amount (major or significant?).  The armor and googles are single items.  And I want to make one more "prestige" acquisition of a Best quality, shifting fabric cloak (Very Rare) - that should be a -20 total

Rolling 1d100:
(58): Total = 58

against 51

General Chaos / Re: Fuck Monopoly
« on: April 03, 2010, 03:02:25 PM »
I'm not particularly a fan of Monopoly by any means, but I now feel the way this guy does about Monopoly about the guy himself.  His rant isn't even an effective rant because he doesn't point out any actual flaws or reasons why he hates it, other than he hates it because he hates it.  I've written a lot of rants and it's only worth it if you point our real flaws or harp on really unimportant things and make a huge deal about them.  What a fucking idiot.  By the way, I have more evidence in a small paragraph why I hate this guy than he did in an entire page about Monopoly.  I win, he loses . . . at life.

Oh, I may get the cranial armor though. YES!

I would like Lorrayne or Jak to acquire planetary defense systems as well. For example, satellite defenses, fighter squadrons, orbital cannons, tanks, whatever they feel is prudent as a countermeasure.
