Seven days ago, the world ended. Not with a bang, or with a whimper, but with a sound like a camel being shoved through the eye of a needle.

Grab your shotgun and don your re-purposed sporting equipment - Ragnarok's come and it's time to mess shit up.


Seasons now available on Topatoco: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]


If you do not want to make a character, but would still like to bip in occasionally/fuck with the players, then do I have good news for you! Characters whose names are written in Lime may be controlled by anyone who wanders into the thread. Anyone. Just make sure to post the character's actions in Sandybrown so DE?AD notices them.

    Man this is some bullshit.

    So, my mom is kind of a frail person. About 15 years ago she had to have surgery where they removed a large chunk of her digestive system, and she's just recently discovered that because of that she hasn't been absorbing nutrients properly all this time, so she's malnourished. She's just started getting treated with vitamin injections to correct for this, but anyway, her nerves are all kind of fucked up. She's also ridiculously resilient, and she's been putting in probably between 60- and 80-hour work-weeks this whole time, if not more, when her new doctor has told her that he's surprised that she can even walk.

    Anyway, not the point, that's just some background info. My mom's a flight attendant. She just got off of a flight last week, and one of the crewmembers she flew with hugged her while she was leaving. When she asked him to let go, he hugged her tighter as a joke, which, because of her condition, hurt her. She kept asking to be let go and he kept thinking that it was all part of the joke, to the point where he got her in a super-tight bear hug and lifted her off the ground, at which point there was a very loud cracking sound. She initially thought he'd broken some of her ribs, but the doctors said those are fine. She's due to go to a neurologist some time in the next day or so to see if he did some kind of significant nerve damage to her. In the meantime, she can barely so much as move without being in excruciating pain. She's barely slept in days because it hurts her the worst when she's laying down.

    And the company denied her worker's compensation claim because hugging is not a part of her job description and she therefore didn't hurt herself while on the job.

    Direct family flies free, and she also can buy up to 4 highly discounted tickets per year.

    The catch is, you have to fly standby.

    No not at all actually. That's the problem with flying standby, if a flight fills up you get bumped. I remember bitching about that happening in this very thread! (well, last thread but whatever)

    I ended up having to buy a last-minute airline ticket on another airline, which ran me about 200 bucks.

    I just let myself fall behind, and then I fell even more behind when I realized just how much updating I'd have to do and got all intimidated.

    Things are quite fine, really. It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would to get the chronicles going again. Looking forward to jumping back in when it'd be suitable.

    Helped my friend move the other day. He's using my house as storage for all his shit until he's done with his court case (he punched a bouncer). He's got some pretty sweet stuff so I"m actually cool with this. Gonna rent Stranger than Fiction, The Big Lebowski, some other stuff i've been meaning to watch and have myself a little movie marathon on his big screen HD TV
