  • 12:24 PM - CapnZapp quoted EricNoah in post [Forgotten Realms] Info on Dwarven Kingdom Under Lost Peaks?
    Picking up this thread again thirteen years later, when Besilmer has popped back up in the D&D conscience (thanks to Princes of the Apocalypse being set in the area)... :) Can anyone tell me if there is info, canon or otherwise, about the dwarven kingdom/hold that is beneath the Lost Peaks in the High Forest? Well, let's see... from "Dwarves Deep" (1990), we know about... Besilmer, a realm whose name and history is forgotten by most dwarves, though two of its works remain as landmarks known throughout the Sword Coast: the Stone Bridge, and the Halls of the Hunting Axe. In the same entry, the Hall of Four Ghosts is described. dreaded beast, http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Besilmer says Besilmer lasted from -4420 DR to -4160 DR, that is, several thousand years from "now", and lasted hundreds of years. (This could still be a single dwarf's lifetime) My question is: is there a general discussion about reconciling these vastly different timelines. I mean, I don't fuss...

    Ok, someone help me ... when I see the word SPECTRE I hear it in my head in the voice of The Count (from Sesame Street): "SPECTRE! AH HA HA HA!" Where is this coming from?New tech Q is working on. Obviously it's not perfected yet. Christoph Waltz is cast in this movie, probably as the villain. He is awesome.

  • 10:45 PM - Ryujin quoted EricNoah in post The Flash is here
    It was good stuff. I too might have liked a slower playout of the discovery of his powers etc., but I guess fast hero = fast backstory! I know nothing about the comic book character, and I wonder how his story will sustain interest over multiple seasons. There's more to come, on the powers front. Imagine all the things that you could do with super speed, then add in the pseudo-sciencey stuff too.

  • 04:03 PM - Boarstorm quoted EricNoah in post What's your favorite Audiobook?
    The President's Vampire series by Christopher Farnsworth (Bronson Pinchot is just amazing as a narrator) Does he do the slow southern drawl voice in this one? I found it somewhat offputting in Correia's Grimnoir series. Otherwise, I agree with what I've heard/read of your list. Ready Player One, in particular. World War Z: Also excellent. I kind of wish GraphicAudio's full cast/sound effect books (audio dramas?) were available on Audible.

    Ready Player One (Will Wheaton really nails it here),. which becomes funny cuz of an off hand comment about him becoming a co-president of the OASIS...I love the unabridged audio book for World War Z it has an all star cast....

  • 06:22 PM - Mallus quoted EricNoah in post [October] What are you reading?
    I'm curious about this one and have it on a wish list for audiobooks... wondering if I should read it or listen to it. I recommend reading it. The book's over 600 pages long. You'll want to savor the sentences in places. I can't think of a current writer better at combining literary-style prose with "OMG WHAT HAPPENS NEXT??!!"-style prose, ie he's both a great writer & a great storyteller. Sounds like there are multiple narrators - does that make sense for the book? There are. The first and second parts of the book have 1st-person narrators (they all might).

  • 06:16 PM - Morrus quoted EricNoah in post GOTHAM Gets Official Full Series Order at Fox
    Maybe think of the city as the star of the show, instead of Gordon? That's kinda what I was asking. How does the city evolve to the point where Batman is needed? Presumably it starts off corrupt, and it'll stay corrupt, and then Batman will appear in 20 years? I heard Falcone is the big crime lord, just like he is 20 years later? Corrupt cops like Bullock are around at both ends of the arc? The only angle I can think of is the birth of the Batman rogues' gallery. I guess if *they* are the main stars, that could work. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I have a few weeks to wait, unfortunately, but I definitely plan to give it a shot, doubts notwithstanding.
  • 06:00 PM - Morrus quoted EricNoah in post GOTHAM Gets Official Full Series Order at Fox
    edit: I will add, I was one of those who had no problem with much of Smallville's meanderings and ultimate destination. I did enjoy the ride. I also didn't have a problem with a show like Lost where the journey really overshadowed the destination (I admit it was a letdown but it doesn't spoil the rest of the experience for me). An interesting journey is worth it for me. Smallville was a guilty pleasure for me. It's main appeal for me, though, was that there *was* a clear journey: Clark becoming Superman, albeit very slowly and often frustratingly. Gordon doesn't really change. Or does he? I don't know how he's portrayed in this, other than that there's no moustache. He's still the good cop in a city of bad cops?

  • 09:26 PM - Janx quoted EricNoah in post When are you supposed to tip (in America)?
    Ah yes. In the US, it's called "undocumented worker." yeah, that be a different beast. Legally, to employ somebody, they have to be I9 verified, which is fancy form speak for the boss saw 2 forms of valid ID for the employee before they started. And since taxes get reported on the employee (or lack thereof if the employee doesn't withold taxes for a contractor, they still report the payment of pay), the government knows you exist and how much money's at play. There ain't no loopholes except for people not following the law. Which Al Capone knows how that works out (the IRS nailed him). Generally, the only people playing at not documenting is people doing illegal stuff or mom-n-pop shops that think they can are too small to be noticed for not reporting.

  • 02:12 AM - Morrus quoted EricNoah in post How often have you gamed in the past year?
    About once a month; I'm playing in a Pathfinder game. I kinda lost my DMing mojo about four years ago; and as far as playing I am doing it really to pay back former players who endured my games, and for the fellowship/friendship moreso than the actual gaming. For some reason, that makes me feel sad.

But..but...but...the website is named after you! You have to have some deep dark desire to DM, still buried in there somewhere.

  • 04:53 PM - delericho quoted EricNoah in post [May] What are you reading?
    I did the whole series as audiobooks; and as such I often didn't know how close I was to the end. I was in my car and Simon Vance just stops in the middle of a sentence. Boom! Punched in the gut. It really was over... Ouch. I can see how that could be painful. The printed copy actually includes a facsimile of Po'B's hand-written version, which includes another few pages beyond that. I found it difficult to make out most of it (that's definitely one where an eBook, or a magnifying glass, would help), but I did at least get the rest of that sentence. :)
  • 08:53 AM - delericho quoted EricNoah in post [May] What are you reading?
    Prepare to share your reaction when done. Mine: Punched in the gut. I knew it was unfinished, but when it just stopped mid-sentence ... oof. Yeah. I read it last night, and while I don't exactly regret reading it, I think I would have skipped it had I known. Certainly, if I reread the series, I'll stop with "Blue at the Mizzen". What I hadn't grasped going in was that it's not just unfinished in the sense of being 'incomplete' but also in the sense of 'unpolished' - although there are a couple of scenes here and there that feel right, much of it (especially the first chapter) is very rough - almost a synopsis more than the 'real' story. It's a shame, because there's probably enough to indicate that the finished novel would have been another good one. Still, "Blue at the Mizzen" makes for a very satisfactory conclusion to the series. I especially liked the symmetry of the end of BatM and the start of "Master & Commander" - in both cases Jack receives a long-awaited promotion.

  • 09:59 PM - Zombie_Babies quoted EricNoah in post Used car: age vs. mileage
    I'm going to be in the market for a used car in the next year or so. Anyone have advice on the issue of age vs. mileage? I can find cars that are three years old with relatively low mileage (let's say 3 years old with 50,000 miles on it), and I can find cars that are a year old with what I would consider high mileage given the age (say, 30,000 miles on a one-year-old car). Where's the sweet spot? I myself tend to drive only about 7,000 miles per year, if that helps. Eric Average mileage is 12k/year. There's a reason warranties are 3 years/36k miles (whichever comes first) more often than not. In other words, a 3 year old car with 50k miles is not a low mileage vehicle. Anyhoo, to echo points others have made to hopefully reinforce them: 1) Age can be a problem because as certain things get old - regardless of mileage - they will fail. Period. In some cases letting a vehicle sit is vastly more damaging to it than driving it all over the map. 2) Make/model are hugely important. Whil...

There are several Honda vehicles that are on the top ten list for cars most likely to last beyond 200,000 miles. My own car is over 10 years old, has over 140,000 miles, and I do almost no maintenance on it, but it keeps running. I've had other cars that were newer but couldn't go a year without having trouble. When my wife bought her car she had a choice between two of the same make/model/year, the primary difference being the mileag...
