In short: Addictive Alchemy campaign crossover, and upcoming item/monster/event/magic cards!
Because it would be really cool if you had one.
"Soon", sure but could you be a little more specific?
Nothing definite of course, just if it might be for sale in the next few days/weeks/months/quarters/years
"UNCIVILIZED" DECLARES BARON
Artist Forced to Make Public Apology to Trainboy in Japan
Lap Dog and Vigorous Language Stir Up All Sorts of Trouble in Nippon
Baron R. Dobblhoff of Austria does not consider Japan a civilized land. He said that the little brown men have no manners, that they stole their art from China, and that even their scenery is on the blink. The baron arrived here yesterday on the Chiyo Maru with a wierd tale of persecution, in the relating of which, he left Japan without an institution worth while or shred of reputation.
The baron is on his honeymoon, which made it all the worse. His trouble began when a little brown trainboy made a grimace, which the baron resented as an insult to his bride. The baron is an artist. He has a studio in Paris. He was in Washington in 1907 painting a portrait of former President Roosevelt for the Peace palace at The Hague. Being an artist, he is sensitive. During the Roosevelt sittings, he absorbed some of the colonel's impetuosity, and when, the Japanese boy offended, the baron "hit the line hard," or to use the baron's own language, "I took the boy by the collar of his coat and threw him out of the room"
The conductor of the train showed up in a few minutes and demanded an explanation. According to one story, the baron used some pretty strong language. According to the baron he merely demanded the name of the president of the road so that he could write to him and ask for an apology for the trainboy's insult.
The conductor, however, spied the Chinese palace dog on the lap of the baroness, and ordered it into the baggage car. There was more strong language from the baron.
According to the baron's fellow passengers a Japanese nobleman, who was on the car, overheard some of the baron's remarks, which included a few cruel things about Japan. The nobleman took the matter up with the state department, which took it up with the Austrian embassy, and the embassy compelled the baron to make public apology to the Japanese trainboy and the conductor.
APOLOGY OR JAIL
The baron admitted making the apology, but said that it was forced from him by a series of persecutions that would have been impossible in a civilized country. He was finally informed that he could either apologize or go to jail for a year. Being on his honeymoon, the baron apologized.
But he is going to have his revenge. He is going back to Paris, where he will write a book advising tourists to stay away from Japan, telling them that they can not place any faith in Lafcadio Hearn's alluring descriptions or any reliance on the Japanese brand of civilization.
Got a question, though: It talks in the procedures part about this thing called "Crosses", and says how important they are, but I don't completely grasp how they fall out in play (other than second/third/fourth-session "incorporation"). What are crosses, and what's an example of one from play? , players of the game please drop some science.
I wasn't here for the earthquake but I came in two weeks after. Absolutely somber. The effects linger, the country is forever changed.
Nishi-Ogikubo has all sorts of interesting and cool small restaurants: A Mexican joint. A "French-style Indian Curry" restaurant. A place the specializes in Singapore/Malay-style Haian Chicken and Rice. And "Pa-Pa-Pa-Pa-Pineapple", a ramen shop with a 6-chair counter outside the station, which specializes in PINEAPPLE RAMEN. That is, they make a solid ramen, then throw in pineapple chunks and pineapple vinegar.
I figured "Why the hell not, let's give it a shot" and got the deluxe "everything" bowl with two different kinds of pork bits, pineapple, some shrimp, an egg, and other standard ramen toppings. And added lots of garlic.
It was surprisingly awesome. Orie and I are huge into pizza with pineapple on it, and this was basically the ramen version of that.
Pictured below: Food. I don't normally take pics of mundane or even great meals, but this was pretty awesome and unique. And surprisingly delicious. Not "Hah, tried it once", but "Damn, we have to come back sometime!" delicious.
Until then, here's a picture I call, "Sup, Mt Fuji!"
We'll be throwing down in English, but for you in particular if you have your regular boyfriend commitment and your girlfriend is interested in playing, I'll totally be happy to go Chanpon to accommodate.
It's like a Super Chromebook times ten.
Does one of the "chat aggregator" programs out there work well with Google Chat? Is Trillian the best for PC still, or is there something better?
