[10:03:07] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup
[10:03:09] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[10:07:14] <Apsup> Mornin'
[10:07:26] <Apsup> Or good day.
[10:07:34] <Apsup> It just clocked noon.
[10:10:32] <Bronz|work> It did?
[10:10:37] <Bronz|work> It's still 10 here...
[10:10:39] <Apsup> in here.
[10:10:48] <Bronz|work> I thought the difference was only 1 hour?
[10:10:56] <Apsup> I don't believe time exsisting outside of my perception.
[10:10:58] <Apsup> Winter time?
[10:11:09] <Bronz|work> Isn't winter time default time?
[10:11:14] <Bronz|work> Aren't we both in winter time?
[10:11:22] <Apsup> Maybe?
[10:11:31] <Bronz|work> *shrug*
[10:11:41] <Apsup> Still. Noon here.
[10:11:59] <Bronz|work> Well, alright, enjoy your lunch?
[10:12:19] <Apsup> ...I'm drinkin my morning coffee still
[10:12:29] <Apsup> Maybe it counts as lunch then?
[10:12:45] <Bronz|work> Close enough for me.
[10:13:08] <Bronz|work> The sidewalks were frozen today!
[10:14:17] <Apsup> That's not very safe.
[10:15:25] <Bronz|work> Eh, they were straight and the sidewalks here were fairly gruff, so I didn't even almost slip once.
[10:15:31] <Bronz|work> But y'know, winter stuff!
[10:16:09] <Apsup> Ice isn't that bad when you walk, unless it's really really slippery, but for bikes it's annoying.
[10:16:20] <Apsup> Much easier to lose control with those things.
[10:17:27] <Bronz|work> That's true
[11:03:20] <Bronz|work> So anyway, what exciting activities do you have planned?
[11:03:55] <Apsup> New campaigns starting at rpg club today, after the holiday break.
[11:04:07] <Apsup> I was planning on running a game, but I'm not so sure now.
[11:58:54] <Apsup> ...Not sure if I should look at "52 weird names of places" list for inspiration for the name of the city where I set my campaign.
[11:59:15] <Apsup> Though, Dogtown is a great name for any place.
[12:00:19] <Apsup> Though, I could just call it Detroid. I was planning on having it be full of crime, gangs, corrupted cops and all that fun stuff.
[12:00:50] <Bronz|work> Well, obviously call it notdetroid.
[12:01:27] <Apsup> That would be in line with something that easily happens in games I play.
[12:02:08] <Apsup> There has been multiple times when fantsy kingdom has been referred as not-france constantly, no matter it's real name.
[12:03:41] <Apsup> Also, found a North American City Generator.
[12:03:51] <Apsup> Thanks for people doing my job for me.
[12:06:13] <Bronz|work> Hurray!
[13:01:31] <PlugMyDuck> Morning (from the eastern part of the US)
[13:05:10] <Bronz|work> How's the east doing?
[13:05:57] <PlugMyDuck> well in the magical land of Cleveland, Ohio it finally started snowing so that sucks
[13:37:37] <Bronz|work> Did you mean: "So that is awesome"?
[13:37:50] <Bronz|work> I dunno what your snow is like, but I like snow.
[13:46:49] <Apsup> snow can be cool, snow can be crappy.
[13:48:56] <Bronz|work> Look at Mr. extremist oppinions on here.
[13:49:16] <Bronz|work> You are such a contrarian.
[13:49:38] <PlugMyDuck> well I used to work the 2nd/3rd shift life/work style so Snow didn't bother me.. but now that im around and driving with everyone else it becomes a pain
[13:49:44] <Apsup> Living in snowy country you get good days with snow and you get bad days with snow.
[13:50:10] <PlugMyDuck> I guess snow is just an excuse for me hating other people
[13:50:14] <Apsup> It's good to live in country with working infrastructures where snow on roads is not really an problem.
[13:50:30] <Apsup> Also with people who are experienced with driving in winter. Helps.
[13:51:23] <PlugMyDuck> you can live in a place where it snows 9 motnhs out of the year and still have morons who dont know how to drive
[13:51:51] <PlugMyDuck> =)
[13:52:27] <Apsup> We also have to take long long driving lesson course before we can get our licences.
[13:52:50] <Apsup> Doesn't mean all drivers are good, but I'd guess we have less shitty ones than places where you can just take the license test.
[13:52:57] <PlugMyDuck> I'm old enough that I got my temps at 16 and after a two week course i went and took my drivers test
[13:55:33] <Apsup> Why are there so many uncool names in the world?
[13:55:40] <Bronz|work> It just seems so weird to me that driving isn't a year-long ordeal.
[13:55:56] <Bronz|work> Hey, if everything had cool names, non of the cool names would stand out.
[13:56:57] <Apsup> I guess. But no way I'm naming an important npc authority figure as Longstaff, or Whinery.
[13:57:13] <Apsup> Though if I ever have a porn actor npc, Longstaff goes there immediadly.
[13:57:44] <Bronz|work> Longstaff sounds like a good nickname for the archmage.
[13:58:25] <Apsup> That works too. But less archmages in modern setting.
[13:58:41] <Apsup> Though if I had gone with my original idea, archmages wouldn't be that weird of a thing.
[14:18:28] <PlugMyDuck> See. I think it's funny if you go the other way. have your NPC named like they were a Despicable Me Minion.
[14:19:02] <Apsup> It can be funny, but not useful if you want to take the characters seriously.
[14:19:03] <PlugMyDuck> You must find Kevin to retrieve the staff and find bob in the forest of death.
[14:19:14] <Apsup> Not that people generally are serious at all in the first place.
[14:20:13] <PlugMyDuck> yeah I get it. Characters names are an extension of the setting. You don't wan't an Axe weilding bringing of death named Susan
[14:27:10] <Bronz|work> It all sounds very pratchett-esque

[14:35:14] <Bronz|work> yoshokatana, Hi
[14:41:29] <Apsup> Baah. I should go and print character sheets and go to store in same trip and I just don't feel like moving.
[14:41:57] <Apsup> Always the second hardest part of starting a new campaign. Doing the nessesary printing.
[14:42:46] -!- MrBRAD [MrBRAD!~Brad@hide-C016446.static.tpgi.com.au] has parted #geeknights
[14:48:11] <PlugMyDuck> So I'm (drunk) playing "The Resistance" with some people at my house and I learned two things. First my brother thinks I'm shifty. and two. if you spill wine you are instantly more classy then dropping a beer.
[14:48:34] <PlugMyDuck> my my last comment has to do with anything? I have no idea. I just wanted to type that
[14:49:07] <yoshokatana> morning
[15:06:37] <Bronz|work> Plans for today, yoshokatana?
[15:08:35] -!- Neito [Neito!Neito@hide-BD28307F.bstnma.east.verizon.net] has joined #geeknights
[15:11:34] <yoshokatana> work work work
[15:12:27] <Bronz|work> Y'know, you /could/ not do that?
[15:13:17] <Apsup> Not the best idea though. If you like having a job and stable income.
[15:13:19] <Apsup> I guess.
[15:13:40] <Bronz|work> Those are overrated.
[15:14:08] <Apsup> There was a new printer downstairs.
[15:14:18] <Bronz|work> Oh cool! =D
[15:14:20] <Apsup> Had to figure out how to operate it.
[15:15:22] <Apsup> I disliked how the old printer made loud beebs when you typed in your password with the touchscreen. This one was silent and I didn't realize that it didn't take all my inputs.
[15:16:30] <Bronz|work> And thus you learned the value of feedback, and learnt to love the old printer?
[15:17:15] <Apsup> Well. This one has more features, I guess.
[15:24:42] <PlugMyDuck> feed back is great. everyone tells me how loud the old model m keyboard im using is
[15:24:58] <PlugMyDuck> nut normally they are complaining that im beating the keybaord
[15:27:46] <Bronz|work> Since I work at IBM, I was thinking I should get a model M.
[15:27:53] <Bronz|work> But then again, my co-workers would murder me.
[15:44:29] <Apsup> I want a episode in detective/police series to be about a murder in office and revelation is that it was retribution for loud keyboard.
[15:44:48] <Apsup> Actually, I want series all about murders for petty reasons.
[16:00:57] <PlugMyDuck> Law & Order: SPU, Special Poopers Unit
[16:13:29] <Bronz|work> Season finally: neighbour borrowed a cup of sugar, but never returned it.
