Previously, in Trip's Life...

30 November 2019 - Saturday

Dave and Marith and I escaped while the kids were at the park, which hopefully meant there was at least 36% less confusion when the other car left. But we were sad to leave our friends and return to the everyday world.

There was some rain on the way back, and some traffic, but so much of either that we couldn't make it home in good time.

As soon as I was not trapped in a box with humans, like as soon as I went out to catch the bus to get to the grocery store, I started coming up with ideas for continuing yesterday's DW game, and what is really going on.


Watched:

  • RWBY 7.4: We can has plot? Maybe next time? But those guys are definitely related.
  • The Good Place 1.4-5: Jason is such a Jason.

Man, sleeping is hard. But I eventually got up and ate a million pounds of leftovers and wandered around aimlessly. Ayse and Ken and assorted smols went to see Frozen II, but Marith and I did not go because it would have been logistically complicated. Instead Al and I went to the gaming store and I found a Christmas present for Ken. (I'm not sure what Marith did.)


Played:

  • Gloomhaven: Apparently there's a whole different party for playing in Roseville! I tried the spellweaver, but I didn't do a very good job because I treated loss cards as a precious resource and didn't need to play my Special Card of Ultimate Power until like the second-last turn of the game. But we redefeated the necromancer and undead anyway, and this time managed to also get the treasure chest.
  • Codenames: Now Marith knows how to play Codenames, at least the cooperative version that is all we ever play! Also she is not worse at giving clues than me, because I got everyone murdered with "enlongated for 2".
  • Dungeon World: I declared that we were playing DW, and no one opposed me, the more fools them. I don't think it worked as well as at the con, because the energy of the group is not to take anything seriously. Also going to the moon is probably cooler than being shipwrecked. I did get them mixed up with pathetic ghouls and underground mazes and lost cities and smoke-ghost-monsters, at least. But later I heard Ken thought it was terrible, so I dunno.

Words: VACATION.

I am quite sure it was not terrible, even if it wasn't to someone's personal taste!

Enh, it wasn't great. I think Sherilyn may not have actually wanted to play. People are so difficult.

I had nothing to contribute to the cooking except a little bit of keeping kids out of the way, but I was there to help eat all of the everything! And also to lie around in a bloated heap.

Jus's friend carries chopsticks and a tape measure everywhere, to be prepared.


Played:

    Roll for the Galaxy: I came in dead last, I think because I worried too much about getting the most use of my early exploration powers and didn't ignore them in favor of building all the things I scouted.
  • Azul: Another unexpected victory! To the extent it was anything other than luck, I blame concentrating on my own tableau instead of worrying about what other people needed.

Despite the usual amount of inefficiency, Marith and I successfully got a ride with Dave to Roseville Granite Bay to see Al and Sherilyn and one of their kids (the one not trapped at college by inclement weather) and Jus's best friend in the Sacramento suburbs and everyone was happy. As is our custom, we had take-out Chinese food because no one wants to cook on the day before Thanksgiving.


Played:

  • Terraforming Mars: Somehow, I won! I played with a starter corporation because usually I suck, but although that gave me extra cards at the beginning of the game, I don't think they were qualitatively better cards. Maybe I was just more ruthless about culling cards that weren't immediately useful, but however it worked, I managed to keep bumping up my terraform rating, and had enough money toward the end of the game to buy a couple of milestones.

First I slept in too much, then I went shopping, then I went shopping again. I went to Target with a list, I got everything that was on the list for Target, and I got nothing that wasn't on the list, so at least it was successful shopping.

Marith is dead (because why are bodies?) so we ordered pizza, but when it arrived, it was the wrong pizza. (I mean, it matched the order we gave, but it was not what we hoped for.)


Watched:

  • RWBY 7.3: I'm not sure we needed another team of super-powered fighters to take up screen time showing off when we could be having plot or Bumblebee smooches or something instead.

Nobody is sick or having a birthday or in Portland or invaded by humans, it is a routine Saturday! Except I forgot that I have to always give a deadline when trying to coordinate with other people.

But then, turkey chili! And Ayse pointed out that staying up past the point where your body wants to go to sleep doesn't just mean you have to sleep in more, it means your sleep is worse because your body is full of adrenaline and cortisol for whatever emergency is making you not sleep (so, capitalism). Maybe this will lead to me being more sensible even if I have more stuff to do in the evenings.


Nigh-weekly anime:

  • Steven Universe: The Movie: We only saw about 20 minutes of this before they had to put Jus away for the night, but it is not sparking joy. The songs aren't as good and the new threat seems both spurious and from a slightly different genre. It is nice to see everyone in the future being happy, though!
  • RWBY 5.10-11: End of the big fight at Blake's place, start of the big fight at Leo's place. I think Qrow should probably have mentioned something to the team. Also I agree with Dave that the fight choreographers should have remembered they are a team.
  • My Hero Academia 67: I'm not sure everyone in our group is up for a season based around child abuse. :(
  • Chihayafuru 3.4: It's hard to write summaries for this series, because almost every one is "The karuta match continues! Chihaya (or sometimes another character) gets a better understanding of the particular subtlety of karuta their opponent specializes in! They struggle with another aspect of Karuta! Other characters look on worriedly! Who will win?". In this episode, Chihaya is learning to identify the upcoming word by the very beginning of the syllable, which sounds like something Americans would train machine learning to do.

Ugh, I hate meetings in warm rooms. Maybe if I stab myself with a dull spoon for an hour straight?

Once I recovered, I wrote a very simple shell script to extract meaning from large log files. Perhaps my coworkers will like it. Perhaps they will carefully pick it up with tongs and dispose of it in the compost heap.

For a change, the train was not unusually late, but the announcements and signs could not agree which platform all trains were boarding on. It was stupid enough that I tried calling railroad support, but of course they are only available when office workers are at work, not when people are riding the train. Eventually someone figured it out, though.

No one is currently very sick, so we were able to play 13G and eat Chinese food as is our custom.

In the Home Team mini-adventure that we play while waiting for a quorum of Away Team players to show up, one of Brogandi and Gosik's caravan guards started flirting with one of the Lunar lion soldiers, and no matter how sex-positive Orlanthi culture is, that was not okay with her brother. (Because brothers.) But Brogandi was also getting chatted up by one of the Lunar lion soldiers, who was offering him the glamor of a life as a Lunar assassin, so Gosik was going to have to deal with fraternization. Surely nothing could go wrong with that.

Then people finally showed up, so we went back to the Away Team being harrassed in the night by the shambling Chaos-tainted inhabitants of the Mad Sultanate. This was not very dangerous, but almost entirely unlike getting a long rest. The next day, they continued pushing forward with only a few wild (and hopefully Chaos-free) onions as food, because they found starvation much less worrisome than Chaos monsters. Good call on their part, because the next thing they run across is the corpse of a Lunar in armor of strange design that did not protect him from being stabbed in the chest and exsanguinated, probably by either the thing that left the three-legged rhinoceros-like tracks, or something on the wagon that left the other tracks. (Also there was a wagon-sized snail with two heads, one or more radulae, and Chaos fire, but everyone noped right out of that encounter.)

The wagon tracks were going in the direction thought to be "the only way out is through", which seemed slightly promising, but they ended up leading to a party of Lunars with two wagon-mounted ballistae and several maniples of explicitly expendable soldiers. Figures.

We are back on schedule for Atlantic City Rollers! (If I were competent, I would make a web page for the campaign, but I don't think I am.) The SCRPG system continues to be vaguely functional, at least when the GM plans a big set-piece battle.

After mostly foiling Mav's plans last session and hoping things will blow over, the Rollers' receptionist Kevin is surprised to have a mobster fall out of the ceiling of their office. He knocked himself out by falling badly, so whatever information was supposed to be conveyed is lost, but soon someone starts trying to contact the team by phone. When they finally get through to Nighthawk and set up a meet, it turns out to be another mobster, who wants help in getting rid of Mav. She's getting more unstable as the team frustrates her capers, and her minions are afraid she's going to lose her temper and turn them all inside out or something.

Other heroes across the country have had time to respond to the email Vila and Moth sent out, but they don't have a lot of helpful information. Things like Mav have been seen before, they engage in pop-culture-based antics, don't usually hurt people too much, and sometimes get dragged away mysteriously when they do start transforming people. Mav turned a random citizen into a car in the issue where she first appeared, but he seems happy as a car, so does that count? Who knows!

Since it worked so well last time, Anonymouse tries to sneak into Mav's new warehouse lair by the docks (only the classics!), but before she can, the building changes shape several times and all the mobsters rush out, get into cars, and drive away. Anonymouse goes in looking for Mav, and is never heard from again.

Meanwhile, the mobsters have taken the team's office hostage (but not Kevin, since Moth tailed them and warned him to get out). No one is in the building, and it's just an office, not a headquarters with anything important in it, so she leaves that situation to the police (completely ignoring the demands for the heroes to lay off Mav) and goes back to help look for Anonymouse. Feathers has made a drone, had it get lost, made another drone, and gotten signal back on the first one, to see Mav putting Anonymouse in an old-school death trap with ticking clock.

Inside the warehouse, however, is not the bland space with drowning tube the drone showed them, but a grassy plain with giant crabs and peel-flinging monkeys and also Anonymouse who is not in a death trap at all. (It's the real Anonymouse, everyone is almost certain.)

The enemies vanish like soap bubbles when struck, and the terrain that was ahead of the heroes is now behind them when they defeat enough enemies; looks like one of the mobsters introduced Mav to side-scroller video games! After a few zones, the Mechanic manages to analyze the structure of this artificial universe, freeze the water filling the current zone, and start shattering it in the correct pattern (despite the lack of help from his teammates who don't enjoy being frozen into ice full of sharks). He hooks onto the edge of the universe with a towline, everyone piles into Guiseppe, and away they go through the void.

Of course they can't escape that easily, and soon they find a lava field, with stony platforms, chains hanging from the indefinite firmament, and a huge ziggurat with a stylized 8-bit version of Mav monologuing atop it. One way or another, everyone manages to get across the lava to the ziggurat, where the lava crabs are waiting. Even that isn't too bad, except that when the heroes try to fill Mav full of rays, it turns out she's protected by an impenetrable(?) forcefield. Good thing her sins are already in there with her, so that when Moth makes them manifest as demonsquites, they're in there too! More importantly, the door in the backdrop behind Mav also exists on the other side of that wall, and leads back to the warehouse in the real world! Feathers leads everyone not grappled by the lava crabs through, but then Mav drags everyone back into her video game realm where the scene tracker is on the last round of red!

Either dragging them back was out of line, or Mav's earlier car-transforming ways have finally caught up with her, because a huge person comes out of the door on her side of the backdrop and drags her kicking and screaming out of reality.

Well. That was certainly a thing that happened.

It turns out that I have gained fifteen pounds since I started this job, so that's not great. No more noms at work, I guess! Also, if it seems like I have some ADHD lately, it could be because I do and several years ago I switched away from Wellbutrin for my brain pills so the ADHD stopped being treated. I'm not convinced, I think I had already switched to Cymbalta for a few years before I stopped braining at work, but neither brain chemistry nor introspection are very sharp. I will still see what an actual psychiatrist thinks before changing my brain pills, because I think the current prescription does the best so far at antidepressing. Finally, I apparently have an enlarged turbinate, which could be why I snorfle all the time and don't sleep well. So overall I am glad I went to the doctor this morning instead of working, even if my job now probably thinks even less of me.


Ken and Ayse's place is relatively plague-free, so we all got together for Vietnamese food and 13th Age Glorantha.

Before everyone assembled, Mike oppressed my and Dave's Home Team characters with Lunars and wanted posters because the Goat-Suckers are really pissy about that one guy Brogandi decapitated for trying to steal the sacred kite. Guest starring Jus as Brogandi's smol cousin, who was not eaten by Lunar lion warriors.

Once we had all the grown-up gamers, we switched to the Away Team in the Mad Sultanate, where they fought some more broo who would have been more terrifying if they had been able to roll higher than 3, but probably would still have won if conjoined strangers had not showed up to use magic from previous editions on them. The strangers seemed very powerful, but when they offered to escort the Away Team safely through the Sultanate in exchange for a little impregnation, or maybe just some philosophical discourse, Garstal the Surprisingly Well-Read Trickster was all, "Thanks, but we better be going now. Right, guys? Right?". Mernyr took the hint and declined the offer, which somehow didn't start a fight and also didn't get anyone knocked up or Illuminated by the demigods who spawned the Lunar's horrible goddess.

I tried hard to be useless, but made it to the bus in time to get to Palo Alto for Atlantic City Rollers. This issue, the reality-bending Mav Bilium, having dropped the Dazzlings through a trapdoor into a fractal dimension, declares that she has won the wager the local and Brooklyn mobs had on the Battle of the Bands and is now the Mob Boss of Atlantic City (complete with wide lapels and Stutz Bearcat). Then she drives off with all of the mobsters present, back into her dimensional sculpture.

Huh.

Mav is probably up to something, but no one knows exactly what until her goons try to rob an armored car using strange dessert-themed weapons. Despite the gooiness, the goons are captured, and most of the money is saved. When Feathers analyzes the weapons, they are incomprehensibly bizarre, but when Moth and the Mechanic analyze the goons, they are willing to say where Mav's new hideout is.

Anonymouse sneaks in through the airducts (which are surprisingly large for a residence) and finds a bewildering maze with vents that let her spy on rooms that are not in the same time or climate zone but all contain Mav, in different-colored outfits. Apparently she is sticking with the board games theme. Eventually Anonymouse finds the room with the version of Mav that is briefing her underlings on her plan to do all the important mob boss things, like bank robberies, but without hurting any bystanders. Then Anonymouse tries to escape through the room with the pool, instead of through the ventilation system, and finds herself trapped in Arizona. Fortunately, she can hitch hike back to cell phone service and arrange to get rescued before her family explodes.

At this point, the Rollers are convinced that Mav a) just wants to have a mob boss experience, and b) is strongly influenced by human culture, so they watch a bunch of classic gangster movies and use this knowledge to predict where she is going to attack for each part of her plan and mostly foil her with no loss of life and little loss of property (which is all insured anyway).

Surely next issue, Mav will go away happy with her mob boss tourism experience, and everything will be fine in Atlantic city.

The middle of today was taken up with a company meeting, but it wasn't the one where we all get fired, it was the one where we all get crystal obelisks to commemorate the company having survived and even prospered for ten years. Then we all went to Stein's in downtown Mountain View and ate huge amounts of food on the company's dime. It was pretty good food! Also we had the whole outside area, so I was not oppressed by horrible indoors noise.

Somehow I got a little work done after that.
