Challenge #02492-F302: One Doorway to Bonding

A Human, a Kilper and a Drumtun walk into a bar and never leave. The reason why is because they got stuck on the doorframe in the washroom -- Anon Guest

Thrikkuk, designated Companion to Human Bob, gasped. "Did they die?"

Human Bob sputtered, "What? No. It's a joke. It isn't real. It's supposed to be funny. Kilper and Drumtun exudants together create this kind of natural glue, so..."

"That's very toxic," said Thrikkuk. "You should stay away from that when it happens. I have heard a solvent of citric acid can neutralise the adhesive and dissolve it."

Human Bob seemed to be reassessing her life up to this point. "Okay. I can see we're going to have to start with Baby's First Joke Book here. Your lot aren't ready for more sophisticated humour."

A Lot of Unriddling

So. I tried and failed to make a new map in Roll20. I'm currently seeking help on that one.

I'm trying to at least build some interlinked text in WorldAnvil, with varying degrees of success. Last night, I had a folder with subfolders viewable to anyone. Today... I just have that first page and have to work a little harder to link everything. I'll muddle around with it until I hit Frustration.

I'm making small progress, anyway.

I might even trash some

Challenge #02491-F301: The Human Definition

Trying to help humans better integrate into Galactic Civilization, several individuals, scholars, medics, psychologists, ect, get together and begin to travel to areas where there are lots of humans. Their goal is to write a new manual on human psychology, health - both mental and physical, how to interact with humans, to debunk misconceptions about humans, etc. Amongst the team are, in fact, several humans to help. Their job is to help the Galactics separate fact from assumption and write a comprehensive

Shenanigans Wahey!

So. I think I have a rough handle on Roll20. I shall attempt map-making anon. What I really need to know is how to undo something I don't like. I shall be experimenting as I familiarise myself with the tools there.

I really want to make a campaign for D&D.

I also want to finish some fanfics and today is looking to be the day. Mayhem apparently doesn't have to be anywhere, so I shouldn't have to go very far

Challenge #02490-F300: Lich, Please

“So let me get this straight. We’re here to rescue a princess.”

“That’s right.”

“At the request of a princess.”

“Right again.”

“And you, who will be leading the expedition, are also a princess.”

“You’re very perceptive.”

“How big is your royal family, again?“

“We don’t have one.”

“But–“

“We overthrew our monarchy centuries ago, but we kept most of the titles around. The rank of ‘princess’ is held by the directors in charge of various civil service

Madness Day

Today is the day that horses run around in Melbourne and the entire nation stops to watch them. Today is the day when my Beloved is putting out fires in the server room.

Today is the day I don't see the love of my life until the wee smol hours in the next morning.

Today, I was charged with waking my love at 5:30AM when I usually wake up our spawn. Just so that they could get out of the house

Challenge #02489-F299: When the Eternal Fall

A small obscure hamlet, in which lay a small obscure place of worship. No grand temple, no eldritch altar, just a house-shaped spot to contemplate, to speak to the divine, and hope maybe some part of its multifaceted majesty heard. But here we see it as empty, looking as if no mortal foot had trod here in quite a while, or perhaps as if one had yet to do so.

A god came to the chapel one day long ago, or perhaps

Exam Shenanigans

Mayhem is entering the exam block, so the schedule is wonky. Not fun for the schedule, since today is also Cleaning Day.

I am taking it easy on my novel-writing this week because I know my schedule is going to be wrecked. Plus Mayhem wants to make me help him build dungeons for his friends.

I'm still doing the Instant, and any fiction prompts I have in my inbox... I'm just... taking my ease with the word count. Therefore, giving me space

Challenge #02488-F298: Deathworlder Relaxation Activities

They had heard humans liked to camp outside from time to time to relax and enjoy themselves. There was no scientific research for it, they had good homes to live in, but humans, as they said to some of their companions, just liked to "rough it" from time to time. So, the havenworlders invited a group of humans to show them how to "rough it" on their world. By human standards, this world was an incredible paradise. To the havenworlders, the night

Ow

I have enjoyed myself overmuch, it seems. A little bit too much xylitol, a little too much fun. A definite lack of sleep... Life's a little bit complicated, today, as a direct result.

Yup. Hardy perennial digestive issues versus hardy perennial sleep issues. Stir in a thoroughly enjoyable drawing stream in the literal middle of the night by Toasty, and you have a recipe for a wrecked 'Nutter.

I'm doing my best to keep the content flowing, even though other things want

Challenge #02487-F297: It is What You Know

They were fascinated by everything, and were fluent in Spanish and French. Then they got a job as a 'Gopher' on a Film Set and found their calling. Knitnan

[AN: I am not fluent in either of those]

One thing about being a Gopher was that it was very good exercise. Tali quickly memorised the fastest ways to get between Point A - the sets - and any random Point B that the cast and crew needed something from. Then there was

One more week...

One more week before I find out what's happening with my car. I know what's happening to it, because that part's inevitable. The inevitable bit is that my zippy little car is "going to a farm in the country". Whether or not it's going as scrap is up to what we can afford.

I... hate driving the landbarge, but my options are limited to the extreme.

It sucks, but I'm still able to get about and do things. That's always a plus

Challenge #02486-F296: Some of Parts

They used to meet you on arrival and arrange everything for your stay. Now they find valued jobs as Concierges in up-market hotels. The person who knows where to find experts and enthusiasts for Films and Docos. Inspired by a Thomas Cook employee who used to greet VIP's and smooth their path. -- Knitnan

Some people are best at connections. They just... know people. They know another individual who might have the knowledge of the thing. They know a person who knows

Dee un Dee! Dee un Dee!

It's D&D night and I am planning to at least combat the excess of the evening with the abstinence during the day. I shall be a good little nugget and expand my fasting window so I can gorge -as I inevitably do- when the game is on.

My Beloved is taking this old car of mine as a lost cause. Even if the motor is cheaply fixable, it's not worth keeping around. So... in perfect logic, they went and ordered

Challenge #02485-F295: Something She Ate?

A: I didn’t know that humans spit acids

H: uhg we usually don’t, I think I ate something toxic

A: I see so the acid is used to neutralize the toxins

H: it really isn’t. Get back I’m gonna blow another chunk -- Anon Guest

[Offensensitivity warning: descriptions of regurgitation]

The Human digestive system is a mass of toxic substances in valved tubes. -- Gryxnu's Comparative Anatomy, 236 GalStand years before Human Admission into the Galactic Alliance.
