    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?

Moving across the country over the next two weeks, so I'll be pretty sparse.

I'm still running PCA and will be available on DC for anything you may need!

Any DM plots I'm running will be in hold though.

Going to be scarce the next few days as I move- should be up and running again by end of the week, but ping me on discord if you have an emergency.

Work has kept me pretty much at a dead sprint last week and this week (I wish I could be in-game more, but I'm popping in as much as I can!). Things will pivot for me a bit beginning next week, which will open more time back up, and then pivot again in mid-April which will open my time up a bunch. (And nope, I'm not an accountant!)

So... this is not so much a "going away" as it is a heads up on what's going on in my world that is keeping me a bit scarce this last stretch.

Thainites and friends, after an extended (and sudden) absence, it brings me so much joy to see Thain continues to thrive! I have really missed you all and this little playground many of us have come to call our second home. I decided to drop by to offer to things: an explanation and my sincere gratitude. To address the previous, I apologise for suddenly disappearing without explanation, and for abandoning plots and stories I helped initiate. It was not on impulse, and, to be honest, it was more or less decided for me.

Just before I left Thain I was diagnosed with an illness that, due to its severity and sudden emergence, completely turned my life upside down. Initially, there was no remedy or means to relieve the symptoms, so gaming or any other recreational activity were not high on my priority list. Fortunately, a promising treatment was recently discovered, for which I am endlessly grateful. I am likewise so very grateful and appreciative that so many of you reached out to me in the past year (even though I mostly did not write back). Know that your messages were warmly received! They meant a lot!

I wrote this post in the Going Away thread, but I actually hope for the opposite; that one day soon, I will once again enjoy your company and role-play.

I am so glad to hear that things have turned a positive corner for you! And please, please, please... whenever you are up for it, know that so many of us would love to see you back here. Be and stay well, friend! Love you, Lupi!!!

We all miss you immensely here Ben! heart I've been wishing you the absolute best in your recovery, and I hope you know you can always reach out to me for any reason.

Hope to see you around here. Thain will be here when you're able to enjoy it again.

Some of you have noticed my absence is a little longer then usual this time.
This year has been kinda crappy for personal reasons.
There is a lot of family health issues going on, so if you’re a praying person—we could use it. My grandfather and mother, both, have been diagnosed with cancer within weeks of each other. I, also, needed to return to work and have been busy with that, as well as homeschooling my children, and the new pup. It is a chaotic time, this thing called life, but I pray to one day be able to be a part of the story of Thain again. Hopefully soon, but we will see! I’ve been taking quite a bit of a sabbatical from the inter webs to focus on family at this time. Sending love to all!

Will be gone for the next week or so visiting family. May drop in a night or two. Be well!

I’ve been pretty scarce lately due to getting a few projects done before my little girl’s birthday. Going to continue to be until probably the middle of June.
