Topic: Memorandum
Subject: In Memoriam

Very nice, YeOlde... Since you've taken the lead, here, and posted that lovely piece, I'd like to offer up one that has also helped me through more than one loss.

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep (Mary E. Frye)

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

Topic: Greetings and Salutations. (obviously new here)
Subject: Indubitably

I've always said that the only really real difference between our mods and our Innmates is that we mods get purple name tags... oh... and phenomenal cosmic powers!

Kinda like that, you know?

Anyhoo, O' monk-type-dude, Na'Li'Kui, welcome to the happiest little pocket dimension on the web and, as others have already pointed out, if you need anything just give a shout and someone will come skidding around the corner, flying through the air with their tongue hangin' out and... er... I mean, one of our staff or our super-tasty Innmates will certainly be more than happy to help you out.

P.S. Boss, you forgot that there was 6 feet of snow on that hill... and that the dinosaurs were so sluggish in cold weather that it was much faster for us to walk... we were out of school by the time woolly mammoths came around...

Topic: Update on Dragon Mistress.
Subject: May you rest in peace, Dragon Mistress.

All of our love and sympathies to you and yours, Bri. Dragon Mistress will be sorely missed and long loved herabouts, I'm sure.

May her new path be full of light and love.

Topic: Whats a good way to start a graphic novel about magic?
Subject: Wellllll.... Dak said, Accalia, you're definitely in the right place to maybe kick up a nugget of inspiration or two. Hang around and browse, jump in a game or two... heck, start up a game or two... and before too awful long, I'm sure, you'll find that you've got more than a pocketful of sparkly nuggets of inspiration and imagination...

As to the embarrassment/nervousness/confidence thing; don't let it get to you and don't ever feel like you're being judged by anyone hereabouts. Like you said, yourself, you're young and "new" and looking for a firm path to put your feet on, yeah? Everyone starts somewhere, little miss and I'm pretty sure that everyone, in their beginnings, had similar thoughts and concerns ("Geez! That sucks!" or "Crap! Why can't I get this to come out right? I'm such a loser!") The thing is, whether we started years and years ago or just yesterday, I'm sure we can all look back at those first steps we took towards writing, drawing, storytelling, or whatever and say "Wow! I've come a loooooong way since then, haven't I? And, you know, even though I thought that story (picture, whatever) kind of sucked, then, I can look at it now and see how it grew from that rather lackluster little seed into this WORLD SHAKING EPIC TRIUMPH that I've got going, now!"

Point being - Each footstep is a beginning and an end; there is no path, only the journeying.

Keep on keeping on, little lady, and, if you need help or inspiration, just give a shout... one of our fabulous Innmates will always come running to offer insight and encouragement... I can practically guarantee it.

P.S. Moved this one to the general forum as it seems to fit better there.

Topic: Characters without stories
Subject: Ch'dau (Daeron Cynj)

One of my earliest characters ever was a mutant mountain lion named Ch'dau that I came up with for a Gamma World romp... Had a lot of fun just putting the character sheet together and coming up with a little snippet of a background... then, when it came time to actually play him, the fun just took off in all kinds of directions and, by the time the campaign was over, I discovered that I had essentially created what I lovingly referred to thereafter as "Kwai Chang Kitty" - essentially a wandering warrior/priest/monk type.

I had soooo much fun with that character that I ended up pulling him out of the Gamma World setting for which he'd originally been created, performing minor "tweaks" to the character and doing some hefty updates/re-writes/expansion of the backstories, etc... Turned out to be a fairly epic tale on its own, actually... and, in one form or another, Ch'dau (a.k.a. Dearon Cynj) has made appearances in numerous games, stories, and artwork over the years... I may have to dig him out of mothballs again, now that I think about it... might be fun.

Topic: Last one to post wins - Part II
Subject: *snickersnortguffaw*

Have you ever tried to hide a Grugg?

It ain't easy, lemme tell ya! Even if you get him into the suitcase it's inevitable that more than a lock or two of all that hair is just not going to fit in there... You can try and look all innocent as you go through customs, whistle loudly so they don't hear the muffled 'asdf' issuing from your luggage, and feign shock when they open the thing up to find a Grugg in there but they never, ever believe you when you tell them that you have no clue how a Grugg ended up in your carry-on... *shakes head* ... it took like three weeks to get Grugg out of Singapore after that fiasco... and I'm still languishing in a Mexican prison for the effort... and you can't get a decent lasagna in either place!!!

Topic: training dragons
Subject: Pssh!

I'm older than Methuselah and I thought it was a fairly entertaining - if not outright funny - movie. Wasn't expecting much, at first, to be honest but, after being "convinced" by a daughter and a nephew to see it, was pleased to find that low expectations = darn good movie.

Topic: Assassin Campaign (redux) Q&A
Subject: Getting there...

Should have a more or less completed character sheet and such to you by this weekend, G. Just toying with some class/level options... not sure if I'm going to go a "standard" rogue/assassin route or, what with the conceptualizing I've been doing, try a barbarian/rogue/assassin combo that's started brewing.

Topic: Um....Im a newbie here
Subject: The bigger they are...

...the more face there is to lick, I always say!

And the new ones are always so fresh tasting, too!

As noted by our industrious (and sometimes surprise spoiling but in a helpful way) Innmates, the actual blog section of the Inn is kind of reserved for staff entries. Replies, input, and such from the Innmates is always appreciated and encouraged, of course... Now, that said where the blog is concerned, Accalia, if there is something you'd like to "blog" about, the Common Room or even the Personal Creations forums are a good place to start... Just shoot on over to one spot or the other, hit the Add a New Topic link, and kaboosh you're on your way... give that Post/Thread a title, tab on down to the "body" and dazzle us with your insight, ideas, and all that stuff... We can hardly wait to hear from ya again!

*turns hat around backwards and sproings away*

I likes big avatars
and I cannot lie
You other Innmates can't deny
When a newbie comes in
With an av as big as sin
That pops you in your eye!!!

Or something...

... I dunno...

...who made the coffee today?

Topic: HEY!
Subject: Eol doesn't equal a facelick...

Eol is the facelick!

It's a zen thing, you see? My way of becoming one with myself... or yourself... or themselves... or something like that... Sounds much better in my head, I suppose...

Anyway, Grugg does love the lasagna - especially the kind with rocks and watermelon - so, if you do feed the dear boy, do your best to cater to his preferences, yeah? If you just give him random stuff he tends to get the winds something terrible. The last time that happened Admiral's eyebrows were singed, all the windows in the common room were blown out, and my hat flew all the way to Finland (I still owe Raven postage for sending that back).

Topic: Characters without stories
Subject: Copyright clarification

Okay... in a broad sense, yes, anything that gets posted on the forums sort of "becomes property" of the "web site owners" but technically, that's not 100% the case. The Red Dragon Inn (and/or it's staff, administration, owners) have absolutely NO intention of hijacking any intellectual property, story snippets, etc from any of it's Innmates. The blurb in the TOS that's got Flanker all up in twitchy-town is there to primarily protect the Inn (and/or its owners) from any sort of legal drama where actual copyrights and what not are concerned, not to "steal ideas" from it's members or anything like that.

Technically, the posts you all tack up here become property of the Inn (inasmuch as some posts may need to be edited or deleted for one reason or another) and, if you happen to contribute anything to the Audalis Campaign setting that, at some point in the future, actually becomes part of that setting, it will likely become "property" of the Inn wholesale (because the Inn was, after all, originally created to be a "home" for our beloved Audalis). Your games, your posts, your characters, etc, are still all yours, gang... I'm pretty sure this is addressed elsewhere on the forums... I know I've seen it discussed more than once hereabouts, anyway...

Post away folks... I promise, none of the characters that show up here will end up in any of the Big Budget Summer Blockbusters that I'm working on.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Geeking out!

Okay... so a week or so ago I ordered the Serenity/Firefly blueprint reference pack from Quantum Mechanix, right?

Well, as I was leaving for work this morning, I noticed there was a package sitting on my porch so, of course, I stopped, picked it up, threw it in the truck, and continued on my merry... I didn't realize until I got to my desk and threw the thing down that the return address on the package was QMXs... I'm now sitting here, being horribly unproductive, and droooooooooling over the amount of detail this loverly little packet has where not only the Firefly is concerned but the mule, the shuttles... *le swoon*...

Absolutely pointless and meaningless to the game (except maybe where becoming a bit more familiar with the ship may come in) but I just had to share... cuz I'm a mite excitable like that.

Subject: Thank goodness...

...the crew would have hated to have "sweet talked you out of jail on Beylix" just to have you swept off to Munchkinland. Let them ruttin' squirts land their own houses on the witches that are givin' 'em fits, get me?

Much happiness from Ohio... where the wind doesn't blow... it sucks.

Yup... there have even been time when I've thought; "Geez! Is it only me?"

Good to know that it's not, of course.

Looking forward to the update... or the suicide... which ever comes first...
