@nyctophiliac Yes. Yes absolutely. I cannot wear wool, no matter how 'soft' it is, it feels like a brillo pad to me. I tend to buy shirts that are pre-washed because that 'new shirt' stiffness irritates me. I have refused to wear tapered leg jeans for decades because it bothers me to have the excess fabric scrunched up around my ankles. If a tag is out I must must flip it in, having it against the back of my neck is unacceptable. There are more. SO many more. Soft washed cotton and chenille are about the only two things I know for certain I can tolerate at any time.
A few years ago, I had a sleep study done, because I don't sleep, and when I do sleep, it's shitty sleep.
They discovered I was waking up every 15 minutes, with something I was told was limb displacement disorder, and my sister the nurse calls Periodic limb movement disorder. - it is similar but separate from Restless leg syndrome. Apparently, you flex your ankles, hips, knees, etc. I know I tend to point my toes like I'm a ballerina.
It's getting worse. They put me on meds to help me sleep and it's worked pretty well for 3 years-ish. Once I fall asleep, I tend to sleep pretty well.. until recently. If I try to take a nap, etc, I wake up knowing I've been moving/am moving my legs.
So I checked into it - turns out that it is 'influenced' by caffeine, ADD, SSRIs or antidepressants, - all of which factor into my life. But I've actually been cutting /back/ on my caffeine, so I'm puzzled.
Sorry for the short story. I'm just tired, and I hurt, because I'm moving in my sleep in ways that do not help my other medical conditions.
@groth How lucky our Dragonblooded will be, then, that we're based in The Empire of Prasad! I hope to see a lot of Dragonblooded characters.
I totally understand wanting to play a celestial exalt, but I really do love the terrestrials. They feel really fantastic and are a ton of fun to play.
Like I said before, the best way to keep Solars (and other Celestials) from overshadowing the Terrestrial Exalted (and God-Blooded) is to just tell them not to and smack'em upside the head when they do it anyway.
After the first Celestial that oversteps and gets his ass overrun with three dozen Dragon-Blooded NPCs is left a bloody corpse at the entrance to Prasad, the rest will get the message. Just sayin'. >.>
I'm way up for a game like this existing, after playing too much - and yet somehow too little - 2077. That game doesn't really let me roleplay what I'd imagined for my character, though, so it'd be nice to have a place to RP that personality properly.
Hello friends! As someprobably a lot of you know (because I've whined about it in like every fucking thread, sorry) I contracted covid-19 over the holidays, then it gave me pneumonia, and now I've developed pleurisy because of it. It has been making it a little bit difficult for me to get back into work, I'm also having an insanely difficult time getting onto unemployment because of how the state I'm in is handling unemployment applications (you call after 5pm to try and get an appointment for the next day, but they only do 600 callbacks a day, and I've spent literally 30-minutes trying to get through with the phone failing to connect, telling me that they're experiencing too high call volume to call back later, and when I finally do connect all the appointments are taken. Every. Single. Time.)...
So, in general, I am having a very difficult time financially. So... I'm going to throw out a kinda tip-jar thing, and put my patreon out there for folks.
If you have a dollar ($1) that you can spare for a month for a few months, it would greatly help me out because it would show people that my writing is worth supporting cause I have patrons. If you don't, I 100% understand because times are really terrible right now. But if you could spare me a few minutes of your time to share my patreon around on twitter, facebook, and whatever social media you use? That would also help me out a great deal!
I have two one going stories that I aim to post mostly on.
One is about a young woman traveling across the country with a man posing as a cop kidnaps her and keeps her locked in the jail cell of a ghost town. You can read the first part of that story here. The first four parts of "Fever" are free to anyone to read. From the 5th part on it goes behind the $1 paywall.
The second story is about a woman exploring her old family home, looking for where her criminally insane father supposedly hid a bunch of a money, that she desperately needs. As she explores the house she finds that something is very, very wrong with it. You can read the first part of it here. This one is free for anyone to read, so even if you don't actively subscribe as a patron, you'd be able to follow this story to it's conclusion.
