Subject:Nerdy stuff

Lessee.. not alot to post but did want to see who out there that actually reads this is interested in doing lightsaber choreography for cons and a bit of Jedi cosplay. For those not as nerdy as I, I will translate. There is a movement of martial artists/star wars nerds/cosplayers who have united to perform at Conventions and other events. Check out www.nyjedi.com and www.vajedi.com, the Virginia group is just forming. The NY Jedi have about six years under their belt and are getting national attention.

If this is something you would like to know more about, post your questions or join the forum at Va Jedi. Northern Virginia is forming as a regional group and um... I am kinda helping do that... So, go Nerdy responsibilities!

Bascially this seems like it will develop into a Star Wars Fan club, with some performing thrown in. You could do worse with an afternoon I suppose.

(Letters, phone calls and hugs in sympathy would be appreciated for Katie, my fiance.)

The Frog and Golf


A man takes the day off work and
decides to go out golfing.
He is on the second hole when he
notices a frog sitting n ext to
the green.
He thinks nothing of it and is
about to shoot when he
hears, Ribbit 9 Iron."

The man looks around and doesn't
see anyone. Again, he
hears, "Ribbit 9 Iron." He looks
at the frog and decides to
prove the frog wrong, puts the
club away, and grabs a 9 iron.
He hits it 10 inches from the
cup. He is shocked. He says
to the frog, "Wow that's amazing.
You must be a lucky frog, eh?

The frog replies, "Ribbit Lucky frog."
The man decides to take the frog
with him to the next hole.

"What do you think frog?" the
man asks. "Ribbit 3 wood."
The guy takes out a 3 wood and,
Boom! Hole in one. The
man is befuddled and doesn't know
what to say. By the end
of the day, the man golfed the
best game of golf in his life and
asks the frog, "OK where to ! next?"
The frog replies, "Ribbit Las Vegas."

They go to Las Vegas
and the guy says, "OK frog, now
what?" The frog says, "Ribbit Roulette." Upon
approaching the roulette table, The man

asks, "What do you think I should
bet?" The frog replies, "Ribb it
$3000, black 6."

Now, this is a
million-to-one shot to win, but
after the golf game the man

figures what the heck.

Boom! Tons of cash comes sliding back across the table.

The man takes his winnings and
buys the best room in the
hotel. He sits the frog down and
says, "Frog, I don't know how to repay you.
You've won me all this money and
I am forever grateful."

The frog replies,

"Ribbit Kiss Me."
He figures why not,
since after all the frog did for
him, he deserves it. With a
kiss, the frog turns into a
gorgeous 15-year-old girl.

"And that,your honor, is how the girl
ended up in my room. So help me God
or my name is not William Jefferson Clinton."

The origination of this letter is
unknown, but it brings

good luck to everyone who passes
it on. The one who breaks the

chain will have bad luck. Do

not keep this. Do not send money.
Just forward it to five of your
friends to whom you wish good luck.
You will see that something good
happens to you four MINUTES

from now if the chain is not broken.

Which Lightsaber form would you use?
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as Form VII: Juyo/ Vaapaad

Dubbed the "Way of the Vornskr," Form VII was an incomplete form for millennia. It was further developed by Jedi Master Mace Windu, who could complete it with his, "Vaapaad" style. The most challenging and demanding of all forms, Form VII requires extreme, intense focus, high levels of skill, and mastery of other forms. Only two Jedi have ever mastered Form VII fully, Mace Windu and Depa Billaba. One other Jedi, Sora Bulq, mastered its physical aspects but was overwhelmed by the required mental discipline. Form VII, when fully mastered, results in extraordinary power.

Form VII: Juyo/ Vaapaad


Form V: Shien


Form II: Makashi


Form IV: Ataru


Form III: Soresu


Form VI: Niman

So my fiance and I sat down with Sharon, a freind of ours, to plan our wedding. Only preliminary stuff so far, what colors are you leaning towards? Where do you want it, indoors, outdoors, church or somewhere else? How much this is going to cost we havent delved into yet. But it is exciting and makes everything else shrink to proper perspective.

So far we are looking at Indoors reception, possibly a county facility, and a non-denom wedding in a Church. Just some looks at tuxes and she looked at some styles for her wedding dress. All very first stage and nothing to really decide on yet. Colors will be Blue and Black :) That is decided by us both.

I need to start thinking about Groomsmen. I think I spelled that right. Anyways, looks like Mike Boehm for Best Man, and I have a short list for my merry band of groom's juveniles...uh, I mean, men. I need four guys with my debauchery foremost in their mind. My brother Michael will be in there somewhere, as well as some of my freinds from Avalon. I may ask a co-worker as well.

May the Farce be with you!!

I am kinda suprised that there are others out there pissed over their treatment in Avalon. I thought Tim and Kristy only hated me.

Enough angst. This is a game. From now on that is all it is to me. In other news NERO events run the weekend before Avalon, thus on weekends that I can actually go to.

News Flash: A new player will be seen at NERO probably.

Subject:Second try on the Avalon thing.

I have fielded some questions regarding my last post. I will try to clarify.

Q:Am I never coming back to Avalon?

A:Never said that. I said that the world plot is overwhelming, I get really depressed and frustrated with both the IC plot, dealing with power struggles IC and the OOC problems dealing with staff. That is all.

Q:Have you talked to Timmy?

A:Yes and No. I sent an email stating I am out for three months. He responded to that, acknowledging receipt. Have I discussed my specific problems with the game? Somewhat over the years, but I find Timmy impossible to discuss this with. There is something about him which makes it hard to just level with him and tell him what problems you are having. You feel guilty for even suggesting that there are things you don't like about Avalon. I have discussed this at length with Mike Scheimer, Stephanie and to an extent with Jimmy. The last time I discussed my problems at Avalon with Kristy I was told that Kristy began to cry after I left. Timmy openly told me, after a players meeting that my negativity had caused him to lose motivation for three weeks. So what do you say when this is the reaction?

Q: Have you tried X?

A: (X = a number of things to make the game fun.) I loved the Iron Gauntlet. I loved my House stuff. I still have the House, but the Iron Gauntlet was completely put beyond my reach by Timmy. Instead he made me a General in charge of my own troops (who I was in charge of anyway) and a group of military guys who resent me being put in overall command. Ugliness ensued. Then I try to lead the civilians and more Ugliness ensued. Have I asked to resign? Yes. Baron vetoed it. Have I asked the War Duke? Not yet. IC this feels like Aramis is letting the War Duke down. Its hard to commit to it. So just ignoring being Lord General is hard, but it is what I am doing by leaving for a time. I want to be the guy joking with his group, like after I quit being sheriff. I got the most done with my House then. I would love to be able to give up the position without feeling like a dishonorable twit or that I am shooting my plot in the foot.

Q:Will I return.

A:Obviously. Better question: Will I stay?

Q:Can I have your stuff?

Subject:The Morsander that wasn't.

I am sitting here, realizing that I am not going to Morsander. There are more reasons to count for this, but overall I just feel numb. No, more like, I really couldn't care less. I do hope everyone else who is going or went if you read this next week, had/will have fun. That is what a Larp is about. Fun. Unfortunately fun has not happened for me in Avalon for probably the last three to four years. Why was I playing so long? Well, stubborn am I, and I had hope that things would get better. I mean how long can a downward spiral of gloom and doom be sustained in a Larp? Well, apparently indefinitely. Not my cup o' tea. I am out. If I wanted to play Vampire the Masquerade I would be playing it already.

I did a lot of cool things though. Built a damn fine guild of people around my House, rose to high station and all that. I think its sweeter when you take time to consider that staff never helped one ounce (even when they should have) All these guilds with "200" members (of which 197 are NPCs) just make me sick. These guilds who get starting money and powerful assistance from NPCs, that then turn around and brag makes me sick as well.

Well I am bragging. 18 PCs and counting and my guild still has no outside support. I have FOUR nobles in the House, Three Knights, the strongest military Unit in game, Three Fortresses and a Fourth in the works. My House controls three fiefdoms, and will secure the Fourth for the Countess. We supply a Drakon to the Towne and are the default Town Garrison. My House now controls Two Towers in two Chapters of Avalon, and boasts the most active contingent of Merchants. Politically my House is powerful enough to boast most of the major Government positions in its Home Chapter and has respect in the others. By any standard this House has done things noone has done in a Larp before.

I say this House and not me, because of all the help I DID receive from Players. When I couldnt get one response to my questions from Staff, players supported me. When I was robbed, Players helped me, while staff made rulings and basically shrugged their shoulders. When there were real shitty calls made about my plot and times when I could not get staff attention to save my life, the players were there. When I received my jigsaw puzzle sword, players listened to me bitch as the piece count went from 8 to 12 to 14 at staff's whim. When I was so focused on reassembling the Muse sword, players put up with my plotting and whining. When I finally managed to bug staff enough that the quest finally ended, Players then put up with my disbelief, and disappointment when all I managed to get out of it was a dream focus. (Dream focuses do nothing by the way. They are plot items and work only at the whim of staff.) While other people are given nifty items as if they grow on trees, ragged PCs get uber weapons, a years worth of questing yields me nothing. Players calmed me down and got me to think more positively.

I would like to thank all the players out there that helped me over the years. I would also like to thank all the staff members who actually were helping and respected my efforts over the years. (Mike and Steph you are my heroes)

I am taking a break. At least until January. Then, I dunno. If the plot is still as pointless, depressing and Staff driven as it is now, I can say I am not so interested. If this causes me to not see all of you guys again, take care and I hope things are still fun for you. After all that is why we play games right?

Subject:To a Long Lost Librarian

Once upon a time a young lady who worked at Stewart International Airport in New York, often talked about her job with her sister. One such day she wondered aloud, "Ya know", says she, "there are an awful lot of Alpacas being flown in lately, I wonder why?" Her elder sister, known for not being all that bright, responds brightly,"I know! I know!" Skeptically, the younger sister asks, "Ok, why then?" Triumphantly the eldest sister shouts. "To run all those convenience stores, of course!"

Subject:In honor of Talk LIke a Pirate Day! Sept 19th

You are The Cap'n!

Some men and women are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any scalawag who stands between them and unlimited power. You never met a man - or woman - you couldn't eviscerate. You are the definitive Man of Action, the CEO of the Seven Seas, Lee Iacocca in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. You’re mission-oriented, and if anyone gets in the way, that’s his problem, now isn’t? Your buckle was swashed long ago and you have never been so sure of anything as your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off his head if he shows any sign of taking you on or backing down. If one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

My score on The Secret Agent/Assassin Test:


(You scored 60% Ruthless)

You are Vincent from Collateral. You are a no-nonsense, get the job done, stone cold hardass, and you have no problem shooting somebody in the face at point blank range. You are very dedicated at completing your objective, and show no mercy or compassion to get what you want. If that weren't enough, you have a pretty suave way of slipping your way in and out of cities unnoticed, and can blend in with the common man. You keep your comments short and to the point, but have a unique way of looking at death: it pays the big bucks. Why should you get to know a guy before you kill him? You shouldn't, and that's what makes you bad to the bone.
