    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.

    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?

Obviously, I've been unable to spend time with my Thain family since the birth if my son. Working full time and caring for a newborn is tough stuff!

I don't know when I'll have regular hours again, but as he gets older I'm getting more time when he naps reliably. With time, I'll get to log back in on the regular, I'm sure.

Just know that I'm not absent by choice and I miss all of you!

As some of you might of noticed by now I haven't been around too much over the last couple of months, so thought I'd clarify the situation a bit. Summer is a busy season for me workwise and additionally educationwise I've started working on my thesis at the same, so I haven't really had time for playing anything at all. Thirdly I've somehow found myself in a relationship again, so when I'm not working I've been trying to enjoy summer with the wifematerial so no Thain there either.

Anyhow, despite the situation I'm not entirely gone and will keep making random appearances ingame when I've a chance. RPwise Conrad can be presumed to be spending time with his wife in the deep woods of the island and the remaining Blades are simply minding their own business in the Watch.

Peace out friends and hope to see you ingame in the coming times!

Due to school being back in session and our crappy internet limitations Teron and Nataleena are going to be VERY scarce until our school district ponies up a hotspot for us.

We're getting new floors put in this week. I'll be scrambling with that and trying to find space to get work stuff done---so I'll be more scarce this week that I'd like to be (but still hope to get some late night Thain'ing in).

I am stepping away from both the game and discord for awhile to focus on spending time with my mom. She just got out of the hospital after nearly dying this time only to go back in a day later, her turn to ill health worries me and I dont feel right playing games while shes in the hospital or sick. If she gets better I may come back and play more.

With the latest patch, NWN no longer works on my daytime computer. I could bring in the newer laptop, but then work would be even more suspicious of what it was I actually do during the day....

So that said, my Thain time has been severely reduced to night play, and with two very busy kids...well....nuff said.

So until the day I actually get an upgrade for work, or a different work around comes available, its been fun everyone!
