Officially discharged.

Finished my grad school application. Waiting for letters of recommendation. Accidentally sent a reminder to a professor without changing the name on it to his, embarrassment. Oh god. Hopefully he will understand.

Mortifying. That was one of fears when I sent out my reminders last week.

Done for the term! So damn happy to be done. Also so damn happy to have a job that insists on paying me for my full hours whether there was anything for me to do or not. "Oh, you read websites about writing personal statements? We'll pay you for that."

Now I just have to edit my personal statement and add a few details to my thesis prospectus, and I can fuck off for a few weeks until the madness starts up again in January.

I can basically spend the rest of the day shopping for a New Years Eve party dress (I'm going for purple, lots of cleavage), reading, and making lasagna. I love not being stressed out by looming deadlines.

Maybe I should buy car parts. That might be a good idea, too.

Awesome.

Yeah not being in academialand this last year has been really shitty.

So I learned who wrote the Underdark campaign for D&D 5th. 

Kinser(sp?) and Co. 

Have yet to stop frothing at the mouth.  There's just so much rage now, I can't stop cursing.


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU---

That was the Demogorgon encounter at 3rd level thing, the underdark campaign.  Kinser and Co. are a bunch of guys who made games for 2nd ed D&D players when that went to 3rd.  They made Hackmaster, among other things.

I know most of that, but don't get the rage.

Very nice. And it turns out I like the same one as Nigel.

Do you want to see survivalism gameplay?  Namely, hypothermia, realistic needs and hunting?  There are mods for this, but I'm waiting for the patches to be updated for the latest version, as the new Frostfall mod has significant performance improvements over the currently patched version.  This will mean the possibility of freezing to death, starving to death etc.

Secondly, what kind of character would you be interested in.  I have a couple of ideas, and I'm pretty open to any of them, as all should be end-game viable.  Basically, your choices are nightblade (stealth and magic), paladin (shiny armor and good magic) or spellblade (fire magic and conjuration and swords). I'll come up with backstories and motivations later.

I would say Nightblade, as I'm a sucker for the stealth classes, but if it is deemed too overused, I would go with spell blade, both since it would likely be really interesting and to remind myself to branch outside of stealth once in a while.

As for survivalism, while I am on console, so no mods for me, I am interested to see the depth it adds and its affects on the rest of gameplay, so go for it

Some Youtube videos: Hunterborn and Frostfall.  The Hunterborn one is quite out of date, the alchemy and equipment overhaul it provides is now quite extensive.

The idea with a Spellblade would be to use Destruction at range, Conjuration for Tanks, Alteration and Light Armor for defence, swords for melee.  Probably also a bit of alchemy and enchanting, but I have a mod, Honed Metal, which allows me to approach NPCs to do my crafting and enchanting for me, provided with the right materials and enough money (much like Morrowind).

Frostfall is currently, save or don't, IIRC, and it doesn't currently seem to recognize cloaks and scarves added by other mods that it used to. It feel like it's a whole lot harder to stay warm.

GRE today.

I feel pretty good about everything except the geometry of triangles, because triangles, man. So many ratio rules that I never memorized.

Triangles, lazy ass cones  :argh!:

I peel off my face, revealing that I was an orc all along, after locking all the emergency exits, preventing all the pinkies from fleeing.
