    Dying Light's movement system was fun

    I was about to say, Mirror's Edge and Dying Light

    Surprisingly sparse territory though

    What does one even do with “I’ve heard worse”

    Try to make an even worse one?

    Realtalk I invested in a set of CDJs so I can play gigs hosted by the kind of folks who don't respect Traktor and controllers

    Being able to roll up with just a flash drive and play a no-frills set, without and of the fancy looping and effects that I'm accustomed to, will be good encouragement to work on the fundamentals at the very least.

    i had the dumbest thought while folding my laundry.... so, the last rites in Catholic canon are called "Extreme Onction" in french, or "extreme anointing"... and all i can think is that it should be done with doritos and MTN Dew

    my poor D&D party is walking wounded, one losing an arm, one a foot, one a leg, one a pinky

    Notes:
    - Shoulder charging a sphere of annihilation is a bad idea
    - Attempting to catch a sphere of annihilation is a bad idea
    - Sitting down on the ground and pouting while a sphere of annihilation is lancing in and out of the floor and ceiling is a bad idea
    - Touching a sphere of annihilation is a bad idea

    It think the party is suitable informed about the dangers of a sphere of annihilation, as they gave up attempting to interact with it or control it and left the area. Now the gang of handicapable friends has to fight a fucking invisible beholder on a Grease covered floor while a giant magnet sucks all their weapons away

    I ordered enough homebrew to make three batches of beer. Once an order is finalized, it can't be changed.

    I realized too late I forgot to order yeast.

    Whoops.

    However, just ordering 3 yeast packets, around $12, would cost $18 in shipping.

    GODDAMMIT.

    I think I have some leftover yeast in my fridge. I'll have to look. Argh.

    Having seen what my room mate does when he dj's, and then seeing what some bars pay their dj's to do. There can be a vast difference in actual effort. My roomie pretty much makes mashups on the fly by mixing songs and he works the room on the fly seeing what the crowd is into and changes it up as needs be. But a LOT of djs that get paid to do so just walk in and play a spotify playlist. I didn't really believe it till I saw i for myself.

    Are you in the Tomb of Annihilation or what because holy crap

    They are in the tomb of annihilation, I decided what I would do to prevent excessive long rests is have the sphere of annihilation burrow in and out of the ground. My thought process was, one of them would dodge it or take some damage as they found out their Leomund's Tiny Hut did fuck all against the thing and they would keep moving (having gotten a short rest). Instead they tried a number of idiotic things against it and one of them tried to just wrest mental control of it and failed miserable, losing her arm because she was 5 feet away from it when she tried. Combined with the fact they all make terrible dex saves

    I have an injuries table for this eventuality since the game just tells you whatever part of them isn't disintegrated takes 4d10 force damage, but gives no guidance for how to handle actual injuries caused by it.

    The bard used the Ring of Winter to create living, functional prosthetic limbs for two people instead of creatures. It's an artifact of unimaginable power so I totes am down with that and made it so. They decided that since the sorceress Xandala is kind of an asshole so let her just get by with no foot, using her staff as a cane. Xandala isn't suppose to be in here, but they all but trapped her in the tomb and she has no choice but to assist them, they also agreed to discuss letting her have the Ring of Winter if she helps them. She is a *very* powerful NPC to have as an ally so it will hopefully balance out their stupidity.

    Yeah, most gigging DJs are being paid to deliver the hits or classics to bars or weddings, at which point mixing is a waste of time as nobody cares.

    Err not beholder, invisible Death Tyrant. I put Belchazor's lair in Chult just as a kind of "oh we'll stay away from that", instead they managed to kill him at the cost of half of their allies and 2 player characters. Since he's supposed to be in the tomb once they got there I figured, hey he still can be! Acererak knows how to make death tyrants!

    A link to a set from a burn this summer. I was asked to play a sunset set with chilled-out dancy vibes. When I arrived, the person before me was playing hip-hop off her phone (hence my first track selection)

    The guy after me showed up and started trying to plug his flash drive into my laptop, which is a faux pas to say the least, hence my playing an extra 20 minutes of whatever while I waited for him to get his shit together so I could go change for the party.

    This one went off really well - had a decent crowd going, and the camp manager commented that he appreciates when someone with the skill to play a reserved, "not peak hour bangers set" actually wants to play a set outside of peak hours.

    I also lost a party member because she air elementaled through a narrow corridor into a room with a Tomb Guardian and a succubus (the party is much higher level than they should be, so I figured the heckin chonker could use some help). She went in there and fought them tooth and nail for a little while and then fled. Okay, cool, now you have advance knowledge about a guy controlling a tra-

    I don't think it was bad. But I believe the consensus was that it was just more of the same. Which works for a lot of games. But Mirror's Edge's hype came from it's interesting take. Which I guess wasn't as fresh and interesting the second time around.

    2 did use my favorite Chvrches song in it's soundtrack though. Which is a bonus.

    So, of course, I slipped and hit my head on ice... it seems fine but my neck is a little sore. Whiplash, i'm going to assume.

    I hope this doesn't drag on, I wasn't thinking when I went to massage the sore part and approached it from the front, so it did kinda look like I was choking myself while grunting gently....
