    well I´m here....it rules..... Madrid is beautiful..... I went out at 7 this morning, because my drunk roommates came home at 5am and were loud and annoying and I could no longer sleep, I´d only gotten a few hours of sleep because I got home at 2 (thank gods for the siesta)so I went looking for a coffee shop....... there i met a bunch of people just ending their long nite of clubbing... I know that New York is the city that never sleeps, but i think Madrid is the city that never sleeps except for in the middle of the afternoon.... I went the Palace and the Prado and out to the Catherdral of Toledo (not Ohio).....which all rocked my face off...... haven´t seen any orphan children but I know they´re out there somewhere.... I´ll arrive in my actual city on Monday.... posts shall come intermittently..... Adios

    Sound like your having a good time (except maybe drunk roomates). Lots of great sword makers in Toledo :) What city are you going to on Monday? Have a good time and stay away from orphans :)

    dude, you know what? now that i think back about Toledo there was a TON of sword and armor shops.....some of it was pretty sweet too, thuogh far too expensive for a poor foreign students like myself....

    and the drunk roommates were funny, only because there was a rugby team staying in the hotel and they had a game today and the noise from the roomies and some other guys they were out with caused these HUGE brits to have a fit and pretty much threaten to break all there teeth out (the guys not the girls, though they were pissed at them too) anyways, though it would have been bad for themm, it is quite comical to see a half asleep giant british bald rugby player with fewer teeth than normal threatening the life of a small American surfer boy..... I laughed heartily.....is that evil?

    Have lots o' fun in Spain. Make sure you eat plenty of those authentic taco's that Dan the Del Taco guy is always talking about.

    I will be leading a team to Spain this Summer for a 14 day mission trip to the area around Barcelona so warm up the Spaniards for us will you.

    Well, the Ñ is standard on the Spanish keyboard....so is the Ç and the ¿ and the ? which the symbol for euros if there are folks that don´t know that..... alas for Moka though, I will not be staying very near Barcelona, though I will attempt to go there if for no other reason than to see the Picasso museum.....oh, and I have yet to see a single taco on a menu ANYWHERE in this country...¿what´s the deal with that? ;)

    At least eat some spanish rice, or have a spanish inquisition, or buy a cocker spaniel.

    That's awesome....and for those of us in America if you want to make ñ you hold down the alt key and then press 420 on the 10-key pad, if you want to make ¿ hold alt and then press 168 on the 10-key pad

    If you take the "S" out of Spain all you are left with is Pain, which is what the people there will feel if they cross the infamous Petra Blakkwing

    The pain in Tehran comes mainly from Khomeni.

    And I will help you decorate it with plenty of swords and armor and shields and such, all bought with your money of course. And my only fee for helping you will be 1/4 of the total weapons and armor that you buy.

    Why don't you go with Moka's team? See Spain and preach the Gospel all at the same time. Or tell your hubby that you wanna go on a second honeymoon. :p

    I hear that in Spain, they have no money. They use a sophisticated method of payment in which each citizen, when they level, are allowed to put ranks in a skill that gives them a higher wealth bonus. Then, to purchase something, all they have to do is roll a d20 and beat a predesigned DC. I wish I was in Spain.

    Wow, me too. I'd bring a weighted D20 and visit one of those famous sword makers.

    yes, but if they catch you with a weighted die, they cut off your hands...and maybe poke out your eyes a little.
