#98463 The OOTAK Blog

Posted by Twyst on 01 September 2016 - 11:52 AM

Kirk is from Jayson's other game group. We don't talk about them if we can help it. He knows we're recording and doesn't seem to mind. We're printing up a waiver and I'm sure I can get something close to his signature on it, whether he writes it or not. He is part of another audio thingee - https://twitter.com/SideShowLounge. I don't think he'll mind the plug here.


Skard is a world that has been developed for over two decades and every now and then I drop into it in a different campaign. I'm really enjoying 5E and the players seem to be enjoying things too, so we'll probably keep going for a while.


Except for Pat. We've lost Pat for our 5E home sessions as soon-to-be-Daddy needs to stay close to home these days. However, since our Ootak night out is close to his home and lovely wife, he may still be joining us for those. Stay tuned.


I like "until they're done shots", but I also like the sound of "Night Out, featuring Shots with Ootak" or something like that. :D

Posted by Twyst on 28 August 2016 - 04:53 AM

Thank you for this thread. I came here looking for exactly this and here it is. I will have to go through it all, then I may have questions. Hoping to get to work on a large backload of OOTAK recordings. :)

Wouldn't it be nice to suddenly discover a really great (but old) thread that you'd somehow missed, rather than never knowing it existed?

What do you do when the players won't even board the train to be railroaded? In the end, beg.

I'm having a ball running this. My players are awesome and we all keep each other laughing and creating. I'm always looking to make things better if I can. Please please please do comment after you've listened and let me know what you like, don't like and what you think might make it better. Thanks!

Interesting. Sometimes playing with Pat is like passing a kidney stone.  :rolleyes:

The dusky tones of the one and only Patrick, everyone. The man behind the medium of everything audibly Ootak. Ain't he sweet?

#82517 Question About The New Forums

Posted by Twyst on 19 July 2013 - 02:47 AM

Maybe I'm just overlooking it. Is there some indication inside of a thread of which posts I've already viewed?


For example, let's say there is a hypothetical thread on the "merits of role-playing inanimate objects." As you might expect, it becomes a heated debate, especially when someone starts off on a philosophical tangent trying to explain what "inanimate" truly means and how it can be applied to living beings that do nothing other than sit on the couch during gaming sessions without participating yet still managing to scarf down all the Doritos.


I read all the past and current posts in this thread and find it very interesting. I post a reply with my incredibly insightful two cents.


I check the next day to find that I have a few that agree with and admire me, my writing style, my well-honed wit, my highly developed sense of timing and humor and my personal choice of facial hair adornment. Yet there is one troll that actually thinks there is a possibility that I am wrong.


I am incensed and vow not to return to the forums for 48 hours cooling-off time.


But 36 hours in, I get drunk on sissy girlie drinks with little umbrellas and, full of self-loathing, I log onto the forums to check and see if there are any other haters piling on. There are. They have found a bond together in their dislike of me and are forming an anti-fan club with a flag and uniforms and even a club pledge that disparages my ancestry.


I log off with much regret. I cry myself to sleep, same as always, but with more blubbering calls to a maternal figure.


The next day, I cannot remember where I stopped reading, only that I know I don't want to re-read such hurtful comments that broke my spirit the night before. Yet I must read on in the hopes that someone will rise to my defense.


How do I scroll down far enough to get to the new stuff without scanning through what I've already seen? There should be, there must be, a way to look at a post within a thread and immediately see it marked somehow as "read".


As you can probably tell, this is important to me. Thanks for the help. :D
