Liminal Event Complex; What I'm Working On; AnchorFM Podcast

AnchorFM Podcast LINK

Liminal Event Complex-

I am under the impression that I will be moving out of State, but have not yet determined my destination State.  Getting my car fixed or diagnosed as a dying equine prior to a distant concert.  Moving.  In some combination.

What I'm Working On-

o Gaming: Although I open many tabs in my EditPadPro desktop app (Jan Goyvaerts), the three I am working on most actively are:

o Animals, Kladraed, and Monsters: as it says on the tin.  The format has changed a bit, and likely will, further.

o NPCeeds: multicolumnar table for quick NPC generation, event complications, and cultural nuance.

o Notes: Rules (or Philosophies of Rulings) which are written as miscellany until the corresponding section is authored and a receptacle for those rules/etc.

o TV Series: What started as scripting the outline for seven World Ages, debating whether filming the last season first and working backward was wise so as to minimise loss of access or participation of the cast and developers; or; filming key episodes which couldn't easily be handwaved should the said loss of access were to occur; this instead morphed into a much smaller tale -- possible in half as many seasons/episode total.  This one is the idea which is consuming my non-otherstuff time.

o Career: Since the show is unlikely to be the first thing, I'm looking for a way to achieve many of the same goals, in a way which reaches as many people as possible with the time I have left.  So, I'm prepared to be in a canned chicken and crackers level, but certainly would prefer something closer to the level of comfort I enjoyed in my youth.

o Alone, or, All One?

Sample Outlier Character & Updates

 AnchorFM Podcast LINK

Working steadily on the, Animals, Kladraed, and Monsters, section.  So far, I really like the solidification of my version of the Lamia, and, Leucrota.

Leucrota in a Bereme Oykh Darshin once rattled my players, or so they said.  I much prefer Leucrota to Gnolls as sapient Hyaenae.

As for my Lamia, picture, Nona, the, Kahn-ut-tu woman, wife of Tyree the Hillfolk leader and Kirk's friend from the TOS episode: A Private Little War.

Critter Template, TV, and my (eventual?) Run for the Presidency-

AnchorFM Podcast LINK 

I'm working through Gamma World and I'm cherry picking through MM, FF, and will add a few versions of thigs from MM2 -- all of those are the AD&D ones, not later editions.

When I am not sleeping, pizzaing, or driving, I'm writing, cat fooding, me fooding, and TVing.

I have finished Revolution, and it was both not good, great, and OK.

I will slot it into the Post-Apocalyptic TV timeline well prior to The 100, but even before, Tribes of Europa.

Yes, 6th and 7th Seasons The 100 did resolve characters' arcs', but many of them were literal deconstructions, or subtractive mirror events which neutralised/synthesised the character equation.  So much more should have been done with that -- it should have been a prequil, rather than the capstoen seasons, but I am fine with it.  Fine.  This is Fine.

Logan's Run the series is so nice, so much in the same overall milieu as Classic Battlestar Galactica -- Head Canon: The Galactica reaches earth of Logan, Jessica, and REM's time.  Time travel must not be tampered with, we know that now...

Rewatching ARROW, yes, I know...grown-ups watch, BANSHEE, instead, but, I was able to do both, and I'll likely do it again.  Laurel on ARROW is so effing pretty, her eyes -- her eyes!  Season 1 is so innocent and Count of Monte Cristo in comparison to shark-jumping it!

Incrementally watching my fave movie, The Ninth Gate, and also re-watching the Damien 666 series, now on HULU.

S3 Motherland: Ft. Salem, 2nd episode wasn't actually and episode -- its narrative structure was a like a sentence fragment where

Mood: I'm increasingly interested in becoming the President of the US.  Can I count on your support?

Question: Is 'Texting' a Gerund?
