You could always start by running Orc and Pie for them, and then build up from there.


There's no combat system so I don't know what to do about combat.
Don't have any?

Perhaps the Orc will only let those pass who can defeat him in a game of Rocket League?

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Ain't nobody getting that orc's pie, then.

Notice it does not specify whether the Orc has class levels. It considerably ups the challenge if the orc is even a few levels higher than the PCs and able to use the tricks, feats, and spells that come with that experience. And he might not even be trying to kill the PCs -- merely teach them a lesson so they'll go away and let him eat his pie in peace.

Besides, why would a mostly "good" party be going around stealing pies?

I'm running into a problem with the setup of my PC in my new apartment. In my old apartment, I was able to get quite a few power strips to work together, but unluckily in the new place, I don't have nearly enough outlets in the area of my home office to plug in enough power strips. Which means that for the moment I can't use my external drives or my printer.

It's embarrassing, to say the least, to have all these tools and all this storage and not have access to it.

You should play Microscope with them Jay! I've played it with kids at GeekGirlCon and it can be a lot of fun, no matter what level of familiarity with RPGs the players have.

Gave a pretty important presentation at work just a bit ago. I was a bit nervous, but well prepared I suppose. But as goes my luck, as soon as I started presenting, it sounded like the wall next to the conference room was being torn down. Hammers, drills, God knows what else -- just a cacophony of stereotypical construction noises. They started without warning just as I began presenting and stopped right as I was done.

There was even a moment about halfway through where they stopped. Someone had a question. I answered it and said something like, "alright, now I can talk about this at a normal volume," only for the noise to start right back up again.

Anyway, glad that's over.

I fully appreciate running water for many things: washing clothes, showers, the ease of cleaning.

And I do prefer tap to bottled (as long as there isn't lead or arsenic in the tap water) if I have to pick between the two.

Nope. Ice Mountain spring water for me. So delicious compared to disgusting nasty processed tap water.

I have had some (very rare instances) where well water was pretty darn satisfying, I have to admit. But never, ever city tap water. Never.

I hear a lot of Trout streams in Michigan are drying up because Nestle is extracting so much water to sell. It's sort of insane how the system is set up for them to extract a public good to profit on it while other parts of Michigan just get screwed (esp. Flint).

Fortunately, the worst of the hot weather is over, although it is still too hot for me to even think about sleeping. Which poses a problem for me given how late I'll be up tomorrow night.

Ugh, reading that just made me rage a bit. Both from the conservation perspective (us fly fishermen are a passionate bunch when it comes to preserving trout waters) and from the profit of a natural resource.

...can we have some of your warm weather please? It's been unseasonably cold and wet up here for the last several months. Everything is nice and green, but we've been struggling to even get into the 70's for days at a time.

Also, this will be my only comment on this today:

Congratulations to St. Louis for bringing home your first Stanley Cup. The team, and the city were overdue.

...even if you knocked off my #2 team in game 7 on their home ice. You earned it.

It's processed much the same way tap water is. They just do a better job making the process seem glorious so they can charge you more.

A case of bottled water (16.9 oz bottles x 24) @ $10 works out to $3 a gallon. Tap water (Colorado, including sewer fees and other assorted fees) is around $.008 per gallon.

Enough water talk for me. Just spend the last few days at a water providers conference. Some of it was painfully boring. I don't want to see PowerPoint for weeks.

It's when I saw that people buy bottled water in Stockholm, that I learned that people will buy just about anything, as long as it's marketted.

Stockholm's tap water is famous for beating about every single mineral water on the market, and it's about half a cent a gallon. And people STILL buy a bottle of Evian. Some people seem to think that their mere existence is a proof that the tap water is insufficient.

I don't follow hockey, but I appreciate how big that is for the city and the people there. A friend from college lives just outside St. Louis now, so she was pretty excited.

On the topic of water, we are really, really REALLY lucky in that our water comes from Skaneateles Lake, which happens to be the 2nd "cleanest" lake in the US.

...which is pretty ironic, considering it's only about 20 miles from Onondaga Lake, which was THE most polluted lake in the US for decades.
