An Update to my BRP Advantages

Just a short post today, updating one of my old posts. Sorry my adventure isn’t done, I’ve been being social and moving way up north. I’m on the final encounter and then the statblocks.

The original advantage as written:

Drop the fracking hammer. (Pedal to the goddamn metal?)
“Great, more speedholes”
Benefit: add 10kph to your vehicles top speed provided it is under attack.
Limitation: this does not make it any easier to drive at such speeds.

And a player suggested the following change:

Drop the fracking hammer. (Pedal to the goddamn metal?)
“Great, more speedholes”
Benefit: add 10kph to your vehicles top speed provided it is under attack. This lasts until there is no risk of the attackers catching up with the car.
Limitation: this does not make it any easier to drive at such speeds.

I thought this was implied but a player said it wasn’t worth taking without this addition.

Speaking of my move way up north I now get my mail from general delivery, which means I can give out my mailing address without giving out my address. Which means I’m interested in getting a penpal. Yes I am one of those crazy people who handwrites letters. Now I’m not a great correspondent, I tend to ramble about any old thing that catches my interest, and my penmanship is frankly terrible, however if you’d like to write some letters drop me a line.

Until next time, Stay Geeky

For Ada

One year ago today my girlfriend Ada’s husband died. I….I have no idea what to tell her. And well, I noticed some similarities to the song in Fury of Solace. So…I wrote her something. I don’t like several of the lines, and I know, writing a filk like this is probably lame as hell, but I don’t know what to do or say as I can’t even be their to be with her. This frustration is shown in mine (Solace’s) lines, at least I hope it is. I’m not a musical person and this would probably sound terrible sung, but all I can give her are words, and they don’t seem enough so I’m willing to try anything.

Anyway:

To the tune of Lot In Life by Nick DeMatteo: See http://furyofsolace.com/?page_id=7

#WIDOW
One year ago today
My husband went away
Then this widowed girl
Thrust into the world
Carried on until today

So I’ve been told a lot in life
In each one rain must fall
I try my best to do what’s right
No one could do better

#SOLACE
Don’t know what to do
Had to be a better way
But my high-falutin’ words
and my *hugs* are just not enough #This line could use work
Unless I sucked it up and helped her anyway

Fate said carings my lot in life
For the good of all
Two lives suddnely intertwined, right?
The pride before the fail

#WIDOW/SOLACE
One life, two loves
Alone and together
And I… will never give up my love

#WIDOW (overlapping with Solace below)
So I’ve been told a lot in life
In each one rain must fall
I try my best to do what’s right
No one could do better

#SOLACE
Fate said carings my lot in life
For the good of all
Two lives suddnely intertwined, right?
The pride before the fail

#WIDOW/SOLACE
One life, two loves
Alone and together
And I… will never give up my love

Each day’s the same
All pawns in someone’s game
And I… have no choice but to survive

—————–

So…yeah. I love you Ada, and wish I could help with the pain you must be feeling. From what you’ve told me about your husband he was someone I could have been really great friends with.

Sorry about the poor quailty of the spelling and grammer in this post, I have trouble editing things like this. Hell, I have trouble writing things like this. Oh yeah. First non-RPG post.

Stay Geeky. –Canageek.
