    If I remember correctly Allen, you're not into EU at all. The witches come from there. See Amy (Pounce) for details. :)

    A few of them have become members, whether they like it or not ;). and I needed to let them know of it.


    If it rains, we are still going through with it, everytime we canceled because of rain, the day was nice and we were too lazy to try and move. We are not going to move it. :D

    Could I get a head count of how many people plan on coming to the Pow Wow this weekend? Yes, I'm just paranoid that no one is going to show up and I'll be stuck with cobbler and ice cream.

    I'll be there but I'm going to be a little late. I'm going out to lunch with an old coworker. I'll probably be there around 3:30ish.

    ok heres the RPG/LARP story... this was about 2 1/2 years ago... I had this assosiate at work who had this group that did this kinda stuff with all the time (he was never seen without some kind of source book(s) under his arm. Well I am pretty well read in fantasy type stuff - when I was younger I read a ton of the Dragonlance series, read LOTR multiple times as well as the Shannara series- so I'm not completley ingorant at the stuff. That and most of my adult life I've studied and practiced various types of swordplay. So after much pestering and pleading he convinced me to join in on one of their gatherings- this particular one was one where you actually fight with either padded "swords" or the bamboo wasters and the spell guys have to recite all the little words ect... This one was supposed to be a big deal as like 3 different groups were all combining for this thing. We all met at this guys house and he had all the rooms decorated as various places in the game ect. I didnt know but everyone was supposed to show up in costume, i show up with a t-shirt and khakis and my waster. So instantly i was on the bad side of all the die hards (which was pretty much all of them) I then spent the most confusing hour of my life making up this guy that didnt exist and rolling more dice in one hand than i have ever seen before. I never knew but there is a 100 side die. Whoda thunk. Anyway so since this was my first thing my lil guy was super weak and practially naked (all these other guys had the same character for years at a time and were uber goliath-esque.) So they started the game and I kept pissing people off by not playing right, not referring to my character in the first person, ect. So there was this one guy who was the king RPG guy- had been doing this thing the longest and had the toughest character. Really irritating- anyway I thought to my self I'd relly like to hit him- and then I though - Oh wait, I can! So 'my character' picked a fight with him - of course everyone laughed because we had just started and my charcter only had a wooden club and his had some rediculous Mega Diamond Mithril Edged Super Non-Brekable Extra Cool Guy Sword ...and matching armour. This was to be the first duel of the game. There is a fundamental problem with doing these live fights...in reality; I know what Im doing with a sword. So they clear a space and we square off and begin- within 3 seconds I've whacked him several times and hes now on the floor swearing at me in elvish (i think- its a little rusty)he starts screaming that I cant do that cause Im just a little pip squeak and hes got the Mega Diamond Mithril Edged Super Non-Brekable Extra Cool Guy Sword ...and matching armour. I said, yeah but youre on the floor and im not. Well needless to say I was outnumbered and asked to leave the house cause I wouldnt play 'right'. Whats the point of doing live action if you can do what you can do? anyway- thats my funny story... I later heard that the guy I hit broke his finger...not because i hit it but after I left he punched the wall and broke it- hehehe - aint I a stinker?

    Allen, I love that story, it brought me much joy. It reminded me of my old laser tag days when the "men" thought that just because I was a girl that I wasn't a challenge...little did they know. Many men were humbled...bwahahaahhaha!!!! Don't you just love betting people at their own game?

    and where can I find this fabled 100 sided die?
