    Yeah - both of those are just byproducts of my old-man eyes not seeing well from the toolset and thinking there was a path down from those ledges that there turned out to not be. There's also a bug with a pitfall in one part of the dungeon Blue told me about that is a similar "Stuck" point. I got one fixed last night, but never heard of or saw the second one until now. I'll get it fixed when I get home tonight!

    Forgiver, my dude. Falling into the gap on the way TO the dungeon is AWFUL. One good change today, not requiring a jump or a portal to even enter the zone, A+. But now if you fall (even if roped, because it doesn't actually work), you get stuck in an area you can't leave without a jump or portal.

    Fun!

    After years of saying I wanted to get a telescope my wife made the "mistake" of buying me a 102 f/12.7 Orion Maksutov-Cassegrain. Love it for planetary and brighter deep-sky viewing so far.

    Of course that just made the bug worse and want to get a larger scope for viewing fainter objects.

    So I am curious what other use.

    Working telescopes (atm): old Celestron C8 SCT I purchased back in 1979, new Celestron OmniXLT 150 6" f/5 Newtonian, cheapo Meade 90mm f/8.8 refractor sniped off of eBay for $30 (these three I use on a Celestron AVX mount). Also a homebuilt 10" Dobsonian put together in 2010 and a homebuilt 6" Newtonian I made in H.S. c. 1966. Main imaging camera (atm) is a Canon 60D DSLR. The new camera is the SVBony SV305 Pro - plan to use it as a guide camera and for moon/planetary imaging.

    What telescopes do you have? And camera?

    I'll likely miss Section Six tonight. Got a new camera for my telescopes and it looks like the sky will be clear. So, I'll be outside doing astrophotography stuff.

    Oh! I will be IG as Tarok tonight instead of Sol!

    Section Six will take place at 7pm CDT (-5GMT) tonight, which is an hour later than last week.

    We will meet in the Iron Minogon. Good(ish) type characters of level SEVEN or below ! Just assume your character got a mysterious letter inviting them there !

    They receive the DC benefit from items, but not from spell foci, since alchemist gas clouds are not spells. They also don't receive the bonus from the wild magic robe specifically since gas clouds can't wild magic.

    Are alchemists' clouds affected by spell focus/GSF or items/enchants that increase spell save DCs?

Apparently, Pt. 16 didn't upload properly. I'm sorry about that and it should be fixed, now.

Also: Part 17 is loaded.

To anyone who's reading: keep an eye out for something weird between parts 14 and 18. For some reason, the copy I update here and my writing copy have a discrepancy between the number of words. My updated copy has another 2000 words or so and i can't figure out why.

I'm really glad to hear that! I'm having a -ton- of fun writing it and I'm learning a lot while I'm doing it. I already have ideas on how to improve my first book and I'm not even close to done with the Garagnovel.

Also, Update: Parts 21 and bonus 22, today.

I find your industriousness inspiring, Vaeltava. The concept of a gnovel (geddit?) is also superb. What's your routine for writing? You seem like you're really disciplined at it.

I write songs but struggle with prose, so an insight into how you go about writing would be nice, if you don't mind smile

Honestly, I don't get any writing done in my actual free time, which is a struggle I'm working to eliminate by changing my home routine. I've already determined that my living room is full of too many distractions and triggers to be able to use it for eriting. Instead, I've obtained a small, extra desk that will be used explicitly for writing.

All the work I've done on the gnovel (goddit smile ) thus far has been done while at work, where I'm already in work-mode. In between customers and chores, I whip out my phone and write another few paragraphs. By the time noon rolls around, I usually reach a point in the story at which I am satisfied to end the current chapter and post an update.

Frequently, I'll find other opportunities to write, during the day. I play tabletop RPGs once a week with friends and family; while awaiting late arrivals, I'll have time. Basically, I chalk my industriousness down to taking every snippet of time I can get to write, except for the large chunks of time I spend doing much less productive things in front of the TV.
