Top five RPG moments?

  • Challenging the Sith battlemaster to a solo duel and beating him down like he was nothing, much to the annoyance of my GM
  • When the players realized that my PC was actually a plot NPC who had infiltrated the party in order to kidnap one of their members
  • Flirting with an NPC with enough conviction to make my GM slightly uncomfortable
  • Destroying an Eclipse-class Star Destroyer with my lightsaber and a well-placed thermal detonator
  • Watching the looks on the players’ faces as A) the party’s bard rushed to the altar to try to stop the ritual they were interrupting, just in time for him to be the final sacrifice they needed, B) the LE fighter and the NG cleric going down like a pair of badasses against a mass of iron golems, a really fantastic moment given their original rivalry that turned to brotherhood, C) the sorceress seeing Orcus be summoned to the material plane with her final breaths as the party didn’t quite stop the ritual, before D) everyone was brought out of a coma and realized that what they had seen was a prophetic warning, they had a deadline before the summoning took place for real, and they were going to need to rally a lot more support if they were going to actually stop it

amusedreams replied to your post: Spoiler Free Lost Girl Review

I recorded the 4 episodes of Season 1 they showed a few weeks ago on Syfy… and am almost done and… and… I can’t figure out what to do because how do I see the rest between that and season 4?! *investigates Hulu*

I got into Lost Girl because seasons 1 and 2 were on Hulu, then started watching it on Syfy last season.

TMI Tuesday? I am horrid at these, but would like to participate.. of the outfits you have helped lovers out of... which is your favorite? (and if I'm being a naughty cheat and sneaking in a two-fer... why?)

Oh, the wife used to have a red pvc dress that I bought for her not long after we started dating, and holy damn did she look amazing in it. It was kind of a short, bouncy skirt, showed off her cleavage really well, and she almost always wore fishnet stockings and heels with it. That was a fantastic dress.

(Also: Anything involving stockings and corsets, because hell yes.)


amusedreams replied to your post: I’ve been wearing CB I Hate Perfume’s In The…

Who/what is CB? (Already love the BPAL I’ve tried…)

CB is Christopher Brosius, the man who founded Demeter Fragrance (he’s left that company but he’s behind scents like Dirt, and Snow, that they still sell). CB I Hate Perfume is similar to Demeter, a lot of real world scents made perfume, like one of the notes in In The Library is “English Novel” based off of the scent of a signed first edition of one of his favorite books, but far more blends rather than focusing mostly on one note.

I find it awesome, but expensive, I bought the little two ml sample bottles of two of his perfumes for $12 each, full size bottles run around $100 (I’m cool with sample bottles, while I love perfume, and wear it pretty much daily, I like switching things up, and I go through individual bottles very slowly, I just get imps from BPAL, and they last me a couple of years).

amusedreams replied to your post: The town fair is going on more or less right next…

Are you sure you live across the country from me? One of the big country music festivals just started tonight south of here. *imagines dun-dun-dun coincidence music*

It’s just the town fair here, it’s not a music festival, they just have an obnoxious sound system. Most of the week it’s been a mishmash of pop, rock, and country, recorded studio versions, played through the sound system.

I wish I could remember how I found you on tumblr, but I’m honestly not very sure. I think I’ve been lurking for quite a while now. Based on the order of things in the people I’m following, I think I found you through geekgirlsmash, but I’m not entirely sure how I found her. I suspect it’s because you both blog awesome things and I like your senses of humor. 

Let’s see… nerdery… I like tabletop RPG, although I haven’t played in years. I love seeing the creativity of people participating in cosplay. I grew up around theater folk, so to me it seems completely natural to dress up as a character you love. I have read a number of books, and have both too many and not enough. I like a lot of things that are Sherlock Holmes, from the RDJ movies to the BBC Sherlock to the CBS Elementary. I love Star Trek AND Star Wars. I’ve never really understood bashing something you don’t like, when there’s so much to love everywhere. So I tend to veer away from fandom wars. I like Firefly and Serenity and … I could probably go on and on. 

I have always lived with cats. I am definitely a cat person, and used to say I tolerated dogs, but I don’t any more. I’ve met some adorable pitt bulls, and probably, if we were ever to be in a place we could have a large dog (or at least a dog who needs a lot of running space), I’d lean toward that. My boyfriend loves Rottweilers, so it would be interesting to see what we ended up with. :)

My degree is in English, and I was supposed to have a minor in Computer Science but… I couldn’t handle statistics. So my minor is a hodgepodge of CSci and tech theater. (Mostly stage and lighting design.) Oddly, that means I can do just a little bit of everything in my current office job with a home construction company. So I actually use my degree, just not in a way anyone would have expected.

You post a wide range of things that are of interest to me, from letting us see into your life, to costumes, to cool art, to just fun memes. Thanks for being interested in your followers! It’s been fun meeting them through you.

And thank you guys for sending stuff in! I have to admit, it got a lot bigger response than I expected, and I appreciate it.
