Having said all that, if you asked me who the GOAT is, I want to strongly consider Kareem as well.
I am not sure who I would put as my #1 but Kareem is in my top five. Along with Magic, Jordan, James and the great but mostly forgotten, Oscar Robinson. I can see an argument for putting any one of those five on top, I just lump them together as the top 5.
@scar@aria 'Inherited money' was a good guess then. :/
I mean, unless my father marries some 18 year old and everything goes to her if my mom passes first, or my mother donates everything to the church if my dad passes first (neither is outside the realm of possibility), this is the only way I'm going to end up a property owner. (And even then, I will more than likely become a 'mortgage owner', inheriting the one on their house. The one I'm in they leave in the clear since it's the less important property.) So I'm not slinging alllllllllll the shade here; I know what it is to be a flake with few income prospects and too many health concerns for the average job.
I'm just, uh, not such a dumb flake as to do that. Even selling both places here, I'm smart enough to know I could afford a crappy condo at best in that area, and the current home and property values (if the mortgages were in the clear... ) are not huge, but... -.- ...I'd stick with the devils I know, damn.
Spelling and grammar. Typos are fine and easily overlooked, but I grew up in the days when diagramming sentences was actually required, and language has a science all its own. I don't care so much about proper breaking of paragraphs, or if you used a colon instead of a semicolon - but punctuation, capitalization and making the tense and voice of your statements agree with themselves isn't too much to ask in my book.
Detail, detail, detail. I have been accused of posing in George R.R. Martin levels of detail as far back as the opening days of Haunted Memories (In fact, it was Sullivan's comment to me to that effect that got me interested in GRRM to begin with. Yes, I do care about how well done the carrots were and if the capon was killed too old or roasted too long, thank you very much). We're playing in an environment where the only canvas we have is words, and as such the words need to paint a picture. This can be done with sufficient application of adjectives or adverbs, or it could be done as simply as a short meta-statement adjoining a pose. Vis a vis:
Sam looks at Max with the same sort of expression that he might have were she currently in the process of growing a second head.
It doesn't require much excess verbage, but still gets the point across that someone is looking at someone else strangely. A lot of context gets conveyed in expression and body language, and lacking that there needs to be something to indicate if the person's reaction/demeanor is positive, negative, perplexed or what have you. Something needs to indicate if an object in question is new, old, well used or well cared for. At the same time, a pose should be long enough to say what it needs to say; but it need not be longer. If all someone is doing is lurking in the background, wrapped in a burlap sack and making occasional sniffing noises that can easily and fairly be conveyed in a sentence or two.
My dear (not actually a) stalker asked how to highlight names without highlighting words that contain that name. Ie, Mae but not Maelstrom.
Create a new event:
Event Name: Name Highlight
** Put your name there instead of 'name'
Match All?: Checked
Run When: Always
Change FG: Color of your choice
That should do it... Please note, like every time anyone ever uses of regexp I have no idea what I'm doing and just copied and pasted some code until I found the stuff that worked. So let me know if it's not working for you?
I watched it in a sports bar, and since I oddly live in an area with a lot of ex-Minnesotans and a lot people who migrated up because of Katrina and stayed around the place was pretty full and roughly evenly split so the atmosphere for amazing given the mood swings of it.
I want to have to deal with protecting territory, expanding territory, making sure your Locus is safe, facing off against the Pure and everything else, and not really knowing if I can trust the neighboring packs or not without a greater threat to us all in play.
Fair enough. I'll ask, but the project will back-burner.
I just don't think a lot of people want to run a W:tF 2E game right now, partly because some of the interests you've raised haven't been handled well in the past or there's no code to assist in it.
