He Who Lurks Beyond The Veil
Well the character is already quite unique. The psychic power is extremely rare in my game. But it is a different form of magic nonetheless, so just rebranding spellcaster would be the easy solution. Eldritch Knight is a base choice in 5e, a fighter that gets some offensive and defensive spells. Then, as I said, dmg presents a spell point variant, which would make casting more similar to how psionics works in 3.5... But hey, I’m just using you guys as a sounding board, writing my musings up somewhere 😂

Discussing this with the player, she decided she wants to go with the simple solution and just make it straight up renamed Eldritch Knight. I’m going to switch the spell casting ability to wis and give her a bit more choices on spells than just abjuration and evocation. Just some stuff that feels similar to psi-warrior powers.

Last night I had someone say he worked a real job, as opposed to my not real job. I'm not sure what it is he does. I know it requires him to wear a highlighter yellow shirt and to get slightly dirty.

I wear whatever I want and get news print on my hands. I think I win that one.

All I could think was; all the miners, loggers, roughnecks, underwater welders, SEALS, New Delhi sewer workers throughout history are laughing at him right now.

If you're wondering about the sewer worker part, see if you can find the story from the BBC. Those dudes win the prize.

I have a white collar life and soft, womanly hands, but I have nothing but respect for the guys and gals doing blue collar work. You can’t build a pyramid without a solid base. I can’t do what I’m trained to do without thousands of people keeping the lights on, keeping the streets clean and in good repair, and all that good stuff.

The man who bought my Dad a Rolex as a med school graduation gift had a 3rd grade education and owned one of the biggest scrapyards in New Orleans.

Up until my Grandfather’s generation, most of my Dad’s family were farmers. On my Mom’s side, various tailors and modistses, butchers cooks, etc.

my friend's ex-wife's dad was like commenting that what my friend did wasn't a real job. For the record my friend has a job that has him dealing with folks who are disabled,so while it's not physically draining it is mentally and emotionally.

I didn't mean to imply I don't have respect for blue collar workers. That was my dad. It would mean I didn't respect him. I did and I do. I was just annoyed by the guy's comment. I do what I'm able to do. Being a paperboy is what I'm able to do right now. I understand we need people that can do the things they do.

May I suggest avoiding opening weekend for Joker? Especially in Texas. Threats of shootings are being investigated. The army is warning soldiers. Law enforcement in Texas will be on alert.

Not speaking to the merits/quality of the film or the crazy stuff currently swirling around it, I have to say, it doesn’t seem to me to be a movie that needed making.

I'm kind of hoping for a surprise ending where Batman comes in to save the day. I just don't think it'll happen. It would set up the relationship well.

Playing around with the Minecraft VR trial is strange. The movement is weird and shaky, and looking around is far too angular. And the floaty inventory is kinda hard to get to used to. All of that should give me VR headache or motion sickness or something, but for some reason I'm not getting any.

No matter how much he drinks the bottle never empties. I need one of those.

I think we're just friends, but some of the things she does and says seems to indicate more. What prompted my mom to say she wanted to meet her is that she bought flowers for my mom. We went out for a late lunch, and I was talking about my mom and everything she does. My friend said we were going to buy her some flowers. She spent nearly 60 bucks on the flowers without batting an eye.

I want to discuss it with her, but I'm not wanting to hear a no. I want more, but don't want to lose what we have.

You ARE in a delicate situation that demands finesse, it seems to me. Wish I could help, but my skills in that area are definitely subpar. Best of luck!

Diner went well. They liked each other. Afterward I had a talk with my friend to see where we were. Her response is we're still getting to know each other. We're taking it slow, and we'll see where it goes.
