    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.

    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?

This is my scores post, post away if you agree or disagree with me or anything relating to this.
[] <-- After each game that will get filled with W or L. That depends on if I got the winning team right, and after the teams, a /0/ Means I got the score right, /5/ I was five points away from each team combined's scores.(I average the two out, and get the number that would be closest to my score predictions for both teams.) Winning team will be colored red. Thanks! ALSO, SCORES SHOWN AFTER THE GAMES WILL BE UPDATED. THE ONES IN ( ) ARE MY PREDICTED SCORES.

[L]Chargers 14(17), Chiefs 21(7) /8.5/


*BYE WEEK TEAMS ---> It was the first week, there is no team on a bye, duh*

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: This honor should not be bestowed until the end of all the games, but this one has to be handed out to Arian Foster of the Houston Texans. He was projected a decent game, 80-120 yards, on about 16-22 carries, with 1 or 0 Touchdowns. But the best running back so far, is him. 33 Carries, for 231 yards(7.0 yards per touch) and three touchdowns against an Indianapolis Colts defense that, is no joke. The running backs yet to play, are Shonn Greene of the Jets, Ryan Mathews of the Chargers, and Ray Rice of the Ravens. All four of these running backs, are top performers in the league, but the defenses of all four teams, are not that bad, an I do not forsee them doing any better, and this will not change due to how they play, I really felt this guy deserves it. Congratulations, young Mr. Foster, for being my player of the week.
$$ Honorable Mentions: Hakeem Nicks(Giants), Carson Palmer(Bengals), Matt Forte(Bears), David Garrad(Jaguars), Jay Cutler(Broncos), Peyton Manning(Colts), Chris Johnson(Titans), The Entire Redskins Defense, and Tom Brady(Patriots). $$

TEAM OF THE WEEK: The team of the week is one I had not even considered would be my team of the week. Week 1's team is the Seattle Seahawks. They were supposed to lose to divison rival, and amazing team, the San Francisco 49ers. Well, they ..... crushed them. 31-6. The defense outmatched the 6th ranked 49ers defense, and the offense was outstanding. Almost no special teams blunders, coupled with the offenses power, in every aspect of that game, powered Matt Hasselback and that team into the category of team of the week, congratulation Seahawks, the first big upset of the season, and the first team of the week. But, the Seahawks, they could just be a fluke, so don't go out and pronounce them God in a football team, let's wait and see, and hope they enjoy their victory week.


!! I ended up going 6-10 for the week, which was one of the better records for people picking teams, congrats to me as well for doing a decent job of picking! !!

@Doffen

The NFL is an American sport where meatheads grapple over a pointed cylinder shaped ball made of a pig skin, while wearing skin tight synthetic clothing, where they run on something (some stadiums, not all) called astroturf; fake grass on concrete. I enjoy the math involved, but little else.

*BYE WEEK TEAMS ---> None because it is only the second week of the regular season*

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: The player of the week is none other than Matt Schaubb of the Houston Texans. The guy did outstanding on Sunday, minus one error. His error was an interception, but alot of those are thrown in the NFL, so you can't really criticize that. He is player of the week due to his overtime win, and clutch performance on their final drive. He threw 52 times, completing 38 of those passes for a completion rating of 73.1(Round to 73) percent. His total yards throwing for the game was 497, and he threw 3 touchdowns. Those numbers are just outstanding, and by far the best QB performance of the year. His QB rating was 114.0, well above the average mark. His errors were honestly minimal, and he ran the ball once for 2 yards, picking up a first down which lead to a touchdown later in the drive. Congratulations Matt Schaubb, NFL player of the week, for week two.
$Honorable Mentions: $ Michael Vick(QB-Eagles), LeSean McCoy(RB-Eagles), Donovan McNabb(QB-Redskins), Andre Johnson(WR-Texans), Matt Ryan(Falcons), Mike Nugent(K-Bengals), Aaron Rodgers(QB-Packers), Javhid Best(RB-Lions), Kyle Orton(QB-Broncos), and Jay Cutler(QB-Bears)

TEAM OF THE WEEK: The team of the week, well, you cannot go against the Atlanta Falcons this week. 41 points scored, 7 taken. Enough said right? No, the players now need some credit. The entire defense, kudos, outstanding, today proved why you are the most underrated defense in the NFL. The Cardinals offense, is lacking Kurt Warner, but they don't stink to be honest. Matt Ryan threw for 255 yards, with 3 TDs, and a completion percentage of 65.6(round to 66). No interceptions, no "bonehead" plays. Straight up football. Back-u running back Snelling carried 24 times, for 129 yards and two TD's. Roddy White showed why he is the number one reciever by catching seven passes for 78 yards(11.1 a catch) and a touchdown. The rest of the offense chipped in, in moving the ball, and the O-line contained Ryan quite well. Kudos to the coaching staff for their good game-plan, and calm sidelines, congratulations, the Atlanta Falcons, team of the week, week 2. At the end of the Seahawks post I said to not proclaim them God in football team, and they proved me right by losing, but I now say, you will read and see alot of the Falcons and their players, in this thread, the media, conversation, and etc. They are here to stay.

^^ THE WEEKLY FIVE GAMES TO WATCH^^
New York Giants vs. Indianapolis Colts
Arizona Cardinals vs. Atlanta Falcons
Miami Dolphins vs. Minnesota Vikings
New England Patriots vs. New York Jets
New Orleans Saints vs. San Fransisco 49ers
