21/11/2011 19:04:52 ‹Bill Ward› Bye Howard!
21/11/2011 19:04:55 ‹Dave Gross› Howard Andrew Jones: Cheers, mate.
21/11/2011 19:05:04 ‹xellos› Ed Greenwood: Do you still game in the Realms?
21/11/2011 19:05:14 ‹Matthew Morris› Thank you Howard.
21/11/2011 19:05:19 ‹Dave Gross› Ed Greenwood: And do you play in Golarion these days?
21/11/2011 19:05:20 ‹GameMaster's Kip› Ed Greenwood: Speaking of the Realms...can you tell us about your home campaign? What timeline, where in the world, how often you play...if you have some sort of "fanboy package" of information handy, hey. Go for it.
21/11/2011 19:05:25 ‹JC Hay› Hi Ed. Just to get my fanboy out of the way - Thanks for everything you did to make my life more rich.
21/11/2011 19:05:32 ‹Lady Elaine› Cold meds are also bad for someone with ADD. Those things can get me real trippy.
21/11/2011 19:05:32 ‹Ed Greenwood› Let me second Lady Elaine's advice. Heart condition goeth not well with stimulants.
21/11/2011 19:05:38 ‹Mulban› Erik Mona: It's an important chemical component for making Meth, just FYI. The Bio geek will shut up now
21/11/2011 19:05:46 ‹Richard Lee Byers› I have to take off too, Good night, all. It's been fun.
21/11/2011 19:05:52 ‹Dave Gross› Richard Lee Byers: Cheers!
21/11/2011 19:05:55 ‹Erik Mona› Elaine: True, I suppose. I think it's good they took it off the market, because knowing how much work I had to do between when I was taking it as an exercise supplement and today, I'm sure I would have become addicted and killed myself with it.
21/11/2011 19:05:55 ‹GameMaster's Kip› Thanks Richard!
21/11/2011 19:06:02 ‹GameMaster's Kip› THanks Howard!
21/11/2011 19:06:03 * _Howard Andrew Jones was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 19:06:04 ‹xellos› Same as JC Hay. The Realms were my real start of gaming.
21/11/2011 19:06:05 ‹Bill Ward› Bye Richard
21/11/2011 19:06:14 ‹Matthew Morris› Squirrel! er, I mean i'm back.
21/11/2011 19:06:22 * _Richard Lee Byers was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 19:06:42 ‹Dave Gross› Matthew Morris: I expect to see you in an Arnisant costume if we meet at a convention.
21/11/2011 19:06:42 ‹Erik Mona› Mulban: I know, I know. And it makes your heart explode. But back in '99, it was just a good way to stay awake.
21/11/2011 19:07:05 ‹weirmonken› Erik Mona: re: Tolkien. Yes, let's hope. The older S&S stuff had a more "wild and wooly" feel that wasn't so same-y.
21/11/2011 19:07:14 ‹Matthew Morris› Re: Profanity. It's not the use of profanity. It's that it was jarring. "Desna Laughs" always sounds better to my ears than 'son of a bitch' for example.
21/11/2011 19:07:16 ‹Erik Mona› Indeed!
21/11/2011 19:07:25 ‹Erik Mona› Also: No dwarves.
21/11/2011 19:07:30 ‹Erik Mona› Or elves.
21/11/2011 19:07:31 ‹Gulo› I'd love to see some Cimmeria action in the Inner Sea somewhere..
21/11/2011 19:07:33 ‹Erik Mona› Or halflings.
21/11/2011 19:07:36 ‹Matthew Morris› But I'm a crochity old man now, so take it as ou will.
21/11/2011 19:07:57 ‹Ed Greenwood› Heh. The "home" Realms campaign meets very seldom these days. Something to do with having my players scattered all over the world holding down very important (and therefore time-devouring) jobs. We are back in 1359 DR, we vote on everything (so, no Time of Troubles has happened or is likely to, we allow 1e and 2e bards, and so on. Yes, there's a voluminous introductory package.
21/11/2011 19:08:01 ‹weirmonken› Dave Gross: ASOIF?
21/11/2011 19:08:06 ‹Erik Mona› Numeria works for Cimmeria, if you can stomach the technology. If not, just strip it out. The Kellids are basically Cimmerians.
21/11/2011 19:08:09 ‹Matthew Morris› @Dave. I could bring Rocky, he's about as smart as Arnisant.
21/11/2011 19:08:30 ‹JC Hay› Weirmonken: A Song of Ice and Fire
21/11/2011 19:08:31 ‹Ed Greenwood› But no, it doesn't get handed out all that often. I've basically had the same players for the last twenty-some years.
21/11/2011 19:08:33 ‹Dave Gross› weirmonken: A Song of Ice and Fire, starting with A Game of Thrones.
21/11/2011 19:08:53 ‹James Sutter› Alright, I need to break off and go pick up the fiance from the evil Amazon fortress.
21/11/2011 19:08:57 ‹Russ› Erik Mona: my inner view of the Kellids is heavily influenced by Dave Sim's Conan parodying in Cerebus. Boreleans and Pigts.
21/11/2011 19:08:58 ‹Lady Elaine› Question for any of the writers: do you find it difficult to effectively write characters of the opposite sex?
21/11/2011 19:09:10 ‹James Sutter› Take care, everybody! And thanks to Dave for organizing this, as always!
21/11/2011 19:09:12 * MBanach/Ezekiel joins PFTales
21/11/2011 19:09:19 ‹Dave Gross› Matthew Morris: I finally found a dog miniature that I like for Arnisant ... only to realize later that it's a slightly more realistic depiction of Scooby Doo.
21/11/2011 19:09:23 ‹Justin Sluder› Matt!
21/11/2011 19:09:29 * Justin Sluder points at Matt
21/11/2011 19:09:30 ‹Bill Ward› Bye James!
21/11/2011 19:09:36 ‹Matthew Morris› What?
21/11/2011 19:09:46 ‹Matthew Morris› Thank you for listenng Names
21/11/2011 19:09:47 ‹Justin Sluder› he's the fiction side of Faces of the Tarnished Souk!
21/11/2011 19:09:50 ‹Ed Greenwood› Bye James!
21/11/2011 19:09:53 ‹MBanach/Ezekiel› Justin Sluder: yep, me, late as always
21/11/2011 19:09:59 ‹JC Hay› Lady Elaine: I actually have more trouble writing my own gender. I prefer working with female protags.
21/11/2011 19:10:05 ‹Justin Sluder› he brings the faces to life
21/11/2011 19:10:10 ‹GameMaster's Kip› ED GREENWOOD: Would it be incredibly rude to ask what you think of where the Realms are now?
21/11/2011 19:10:11 ‹Erik Mona› Russ: That's fair. Bran McMuffin, and all.
21/11/2011 19:10:21 ‹Kevin Andrew Murphy› Dave Gross: So you're using the Marmaduke figurine instead?
21/11/2011 19:10:26 * Justin Sluder thinks Matt is some kind of wordcasting necromancer....
21/11/2011 19:10:26 ‹Dave Gross› Lady Elaine: Not difficult, exactly, but I have to think harder when doing it. Mostly I try to write everyone as a person first, and then just hope I haven't over-sexualized any mannerisms to the point of cartoon.
21/11/2011 19:10:31 ‹GameMaster's Kip› See ya James!
21/11/2011 19:10:32 ‹weirmonken› Erik Mona: Re: dwarves, elves, halflings. For sure. Also, not every story had to be an 'epic'.
21/11/2011 19:10:36 * _James Sutter was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 19:10:36 ‹Russ› The guy with no tongue who punches trees and cows when he gets angry too
21/11/2011 19:10:53 ‹Matthew Morris› Men are easy to understand.
21/11/2011 19:10:57 ‹Dave Gross› Kevin Andrew Murphy: No, I'm sticking with Scoob. He's about right, if a little less shaggy than I'd prefer.
21/11/2011 19:10:59 ‹Ed Greenwood› No, not rude at all. Unfortunately, I can't say much. I just got some shiny new NDAs. In fact, they're all I'm wearing just now. Like the sheen? ;}
21/11/2011 19:11:11 ‹weirmonken› Dave Gross: Ah, yes. I've read the first two books, and I agree it's the most engaging fantasy series in years.
21/11/2011 19:11:13 ‹Matthew Morris› my eyes!
21/11/2011 19:11:16 ‹GameMaster's Kip› They look snug!
21/11/2011 19:11:19 ‹Gulo› Great, now I'm picturing Radovan speaking like Shaggy.
21/11/2011 19:11:19 ‹Dave Gross› Ed Greenwood: Thank heavens that's the long-form NDA!
21/11/2011 19:11:32 ‹Erik Mona› Ed: Is that outfit comfortable?
21/11/2011 19:11:33 ‹Dave Gross› weirmonken: I think the third book is the best, closely followed by the first.
21/11/2011 19:11:44 ‹Matthew Morris› @Dave. i've been playing Dragon Age, so I see Arnie as a Mabari
21/11/2011 19:11:50 ‹Russ› Gulo: I can totally see Radovan dragging on a dooby.
21/11/2011 19:12:01 ‹xellos› Ed Greenwood: I read you work as a librarian? As someone fond of libraries who went to library school and who's married to a librarian, I think that's pretty darned cool. ^^
21/11/2011 19:12:09 ‹Matthew Morris› And why am I a word necromancer?
21/11/2011 19:12:11 * _Jerpdog was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 19:12:20 ‹Ed Greenwood› Far from comfy, but I'm used to it. Like wearing armor for forty years and getting shiny new replacement pieces among the rusty familiar...
21/11/2011 19:12:22 ‹Gulo› Russ, it's not his fault. I blame (cheliax) society.
21/11/2011 19:12:26 ‹Lady Elaine› interesting. I find I have difficulty with males. They either turn into one of my brothers or they read (at least to me) as being too sensitive. Not that a sensitive male is bad, but...I don't know. I think I feminize them too much.
21/11/2011 19:12:26 ‹Dave Gross› Matthew Morris: I haven't tried DA yet, so I've no idea. I've been off video games for a while, always thinking I'll reward myself with one after the next big deadline. So far, I haven't had a long enough break.
21/11/2011 19:12:35 ‹Justin Sluder› Matthew Morris: wrong Matt
21/11/2011 19:12:50 ‹xellos› Dave Gross: I wish I could say the same. ^^;
21/11/2011 19:13:00 ‹Dave Gross› Ed Greenwood: I met your librarian friend Annette at a Calgary convention a few months ago. What a sweetheart!
21/11/2011 19:13:03 ‹Ed Greenwood› Yes, xellos, I work as a librarian. The only man this library has EVER hired. So I'm either the mascot or "one of the girls." Heh heh.
21/11/2011 19:13:09 ‹xellos› Dave Gross: Rather, I haven't had a long enough break and done it anyway, which is not good. =P
21/11/2011 19:13:21 ‹xellos› Ed Greenwood: Nice!
21/11/2011 19:13:34 ‹Dave Gross› Russ: Radovan explicitly doesn't smoke dope. But he knows lots of guys who could hook you up.
21/11/2011 19:13:37 ‹Matthew Morris› @Lady Elaine. Men are motivated by food, sex, violence, sex, sleep and sex. once you get that we're easy to write.
21/11/2011 19:13:50 * cydthemagi joins PFTales
21/11/2011 19:13:52 ‹Lady Elaine› Matthew Morris: lol good to know
21/11/2011 19:13:56 ‹MBanach/Ezekiel› to the authors: when you sit down to write a pathfinder tale, how much (if any) outlining and planning do you do?
21/11/2011 19:14:09 ‹JC Hay› Lady Elaine: depending on the market, beta males can be very popular.
21/11/2011 19:14:15 ‹Ed Greenwood› Oh, yes! Annette is the wife of my oldest friend, Dave. She is indeed one of the world's great sweethearts. (No, folks, I speak platonically but full of admiration.)
21/11/2011 19:14:19 ‹Russ› Wow. You really do need a day job in this industry...
21/11/2011 19:14:30 ‹Dave Gross› MBanach/Ezekiel: Far, far too much. After promising myself to keep my novel outlines down to 5,000 words, the last one I turned in was closer to 15,000.
21/11/2011 19:14:42 ‹JC Hay› MBanach/Ezekiel: All of it. I'm an explicit plotter.
21/11/2011 19:15:18 ‹Ed Greenwood› Heh. Being as James has left, I think I can whisper that my latest Pathfinder outline was about 27,000 words. Hey, I got carried away. ;}
21/11/2011 19:15:26 ‹Lady Elaine› I'm having an interesting problem with something I'm working on for the Pathfinder Chronicler Anthology. It's a journal, mostly written by a woman, and I've discovered that in my last draft, somehow I made her rather passive. She does nothing but observe. I feel the need to fix this but I'm not entirely sure how to do it.
21/11/2011 19:15:28 ‹JC Hay› Plus, as Dave indicated, James likes to see your outline before you get the greenlight. Pantsers need not apply.
21/11/2011 19:15:33 ‹Dave Gross› Ed Greenwood: Jeepers, Shaggy!
21/11/2011 19:15:35 ‹Justin Sluder› Ed Greenwood:
