Oh hay. Just Toba here, DM of this game lol.

1) I actually have a sail boat, and know how to sail quite well. So, when/if we hit the high seas, I'll be a fairly knowledgeable fella in that department.

2) I just wanted to toss a note out so you all know I'm still here.(Thus the first line of this post lol.) I've never seen a game coast on cruise control with little to no input from me before, and am enjoying things from the cheap seats lol. Benefits of having a quest giving PC? Possibly!

Anywho, carry on!

Glad you guys enjoy it. Etra showed it to me a few years ago.

Toba, I'm glad you sail, becuase I've never. I'm been out on boats before, Lakes and oceans, but never sailing. I'm looking over sites atm to pick up some jargon.

Barbarian/Frenzied Berzerker .... best class ever.

Ytter, this is too much. Two good laughs in one day. Plus this, from Cellblock A made me literally LOL out loud:

#140. I will instruct my guards when checking a cell that appears empty to look for the chamber pot. If the chamber pot is still there, then the prisoner has escaped and they may enter and search for clues. If the chamber pot is not there, then either the prisoner is perched above the lintel waiting to strike them with it or else he decided to take it as a souvenir (in which case he is obviously deeply disturbed and poses no threat). Either way, there's no point in entering.


Toba, RC (Outplay DM) pretty much abandoned us in round two, so we figured out how to get by without a DM; that's four outta five of us. Plus, our characters have pretty good synergy: I don't think there's going to be very many awkward moments, as long as Luna accepts Donovan.

Still, feel free to dazzle us from time to time.

EDIT: I've worked on an aircraft carrier, but that is not a sailboat. I know some of the jargon, though.

I have a story about the stupidest thing I've ever heard, much like Lewis Black's story about "If it weren't for my horse I never would have spent that year in college."

Myself and some friends were playing Scattergories. For those of you unfamiliar you basically have to think of words that start with a given letter and fall into a particular category. The letter for the round in question was E, and one of the categories was Animal. So, animals that start with E: elephant, emu, elapid, etc... My good friend came up with eel, and one of the other players challenged him with "Wait a second, eels aren't animals, they're mammals."

.........

I'm going to repeat that, because it bears repeating. "Eels aren't animals, they're mammals."

.........

Has your blood stopped shooting out of your nose yet? That sentence can't be any more factually incorrect. Eels ARE animals. They are NOT mammals. But even if they WERE mammals, mammals are also animals!

I still give that particular person grief about that.

Yikes. Reminds me of a girl playing a similar game who thought that forceps were muscles in the body. (Biceps, triceps, forceps...)

Putting the whole animals part of that statement aside (so my nose stops bleeding), apparently thinking eels are mammals is a fairly common thing. Or as one questioner put it...

Did you ask that question just for this purpose? I think you did. Because it totally hurts too much to imagine someone honestly asking that question like that.

Sadly, I did not. I did, however, once put this as my Facebook status:

Ytter wonder's how many people this will bother.

The answer was quite a lot of them. So there is some hope for humanity.

It can't have been Ytter - look at the grammer: "is eel a mammals"

Funny aside, not really sure why this came to mind. Search youtube for Patton Oswalt racist cellphones, birth control and a stupid heckler. Listen to the magic when the heckler happens.

Caution: Foul language!

The fact that there are 2 or more people out there that don't know the answer to that question is scary. Fair enough not being able to find the Country of Gabon on a map, but having to ask if an Eel is a mammal is basic stuff. Imagine ... of all the parrallel universes out there, this is the one we've been stuck in.
