      About a year ago, I started playing Pathfinder due to the frequent requests of an online friend of mine. Eventually, I decided to try my hand in playing the part of a DM, running my own campaign with some helpful tips from some of the more experienced members of the group, including the friend who first invited me to Pathfinder, who is serving as a co-DM in order to provide a check so that I don't go overboard in the challenges I will subject the group to.

      The game is currently on hiatus due to some issues a couple of the players were facing in real life, but we are looking at picking it up again soon. In the meantime, I decided to start putting together a journal in order to put the events of my game to writing. It will be on my page, should anyone be interested in reading about it.

    • The Hunter Games: Background

      6 months ago

      El_Salsa_Rey

      So, for the first entry of my Pathfinder game, I'm going to give some background as to the setting of the world. As I mentioned in my last journal post, it is set in the world of the 2011 anime (with influence from portions of the recent updates of the manga). Specifically, it is set about 20 years after the events of the ending of the anime. I set the status of each character based off of how they were doing at a certain point in the manga, which is, again, going on past the end of the anime. Here are some things to note:

      1. All of the Zodiacs (including Kurapika and Leorio, who in the manga succeeded Pariston and Ging, respectively) are no longer holding their position. There is an entirely new set of Zodiac members, one of whom is the Chairman.

      2. Killua is now the head of the Zoldyck family.

      3. Shalnark and Korpoki, two of the members of the Phantom Troupe, are dead. Hisoka killed them. The rest of the Troupe, including Chrollo, is alive.

      4. Gon, when he became enraged at the Chimera Ant Neferpitou, Royal Guard to King Meruem, formed a covenant with his Nen. The terms of that covenant were as such: if he could have the power to completely crush Neferpitou, he would never be able to use Nen again. As such, he can no longer use Nen, and so cannot consider himself a Hunter. He has retired, and has returned to Whale Island, where he helps his Aunt Mito with whatever she needs.

      As far as I remember, everyone else is unchanged. In the next post, I'll start going over the characters, who have backgrounds that were played out before the game actually began.

      Hey everyone. Have a bit of a question here. I was wondering if it was possible to upload videos onto my profile page, or can I just provide links to videos on other sites such as YouTube? I was hoping to start a somewhat regular vlog-like thing on my page, focused for now on a Pathfinder game I am running.

      So a while back, I started playing Pathfinder with a group of people I met online. For those who don't know, Pathfinder is a Tabletop RPG, much like D&D. After several sessions, a few of us decided to start running our own games, myself included, in order to take some of the pressure off of the original game's DM. For my part, I decided to make mine in the same universe as the manga/anime "Hunter X Hunter", while at the same time adding some other things that I enjoy into the mix. The game has been dubbed, as referenced in the title of this post, "The Hunter Games". No, it does not very much involve The Hunger Games. I just wanted to make a pun, and it stuck. I will post here the events that have occurred at this point, and will update as more games are played. It is currently on hold for now, because of some real life issues that a couple of the players are currently going through, but will hopefully pick back up soon.

    • Fun weekend

      5 years ago

      So my family has had a lot of fun since Thursday. First, on Thursday, my sister hit the vertex of a median in the car that she and I share. Me, being the more experienced driver, in addition to bein the one not shaken from the event, had to drive it to the nearest tire company after a good Samaritan put the spare on (I wasn't there). The rim of the tire was bent, so a new one had to be ordered. The tire came in on Friday, at which point I went and got it placed. Then on Saturday I went to go get the car aligned. Since I didn't want to wait an hour and a half for the car to be aligned, I called my mom to come pick me up. When she entered the garage, she noticed water pouring from the ceiling. As soon as she pulled out, part of the garage ceiling collapsed. I ended up waiting at the tire company, relieved that no one was hurt, and went home afterward. So now half of the garage is unusable because of the collapsed ceiling that now has a giant fan blowing up into it to keep it dry so more damage doesn't happen. At least I saved a few thousand dollars by calling my mom, who saved her car. I think I earned a computer now...

    • Collapse of Morality

      5 years ago

      El_Salsa_Rey

      Hello, everyone. I feel like I should start trying to do something about a law the US Government is trying to put in place, one that defies one of the very key points of my religion, Roman Catholicism. The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a rule requiring any and every private health care plans to include coverage for contraceptives, surgical sterilization, and pretty much anything having to do with abortion. I'm not asking you to change your beliefs on abortion. If you are pro-life, thank you for appreciating the sanctity of life for the unborn, if you are pro-choice, I am not here to argue today. But whichever side you are on, pro-choice or pro-life, you must agree that everyone is allowed to believe what they choose to believe in, and practice every aspect of their respective faiths. Right? No, the Department of Health and Human Services does not believe in that, apparently. In forcing every provider of health care to support this rule, to allow AND PAY for abortions, is wrong. The employer might not agree to such a rule. The one receiving the health care might not agree to such a rule. But the HHS, in short, does not give a shit about what we want to believe, what we want to practice, just so long as they get what they want. And what they want is for people in America to agree with them.

      As I mentioned, I am a Catholic, and am very strong in my faith. This rule is forcing me and every other Catholic in America to defy their faith, their conscience, by mandating the provision of birth control. Again, I am not trying to convince you believers of pro-choice to change your ways, or repent, or anything. I am simply saying, that everyone should be pro-choice. Not pro-choice for whether or not you want to have a baby, but pro-choice on the issue of beliefs, of morals. I ask of you, please help myself and the large amount of people in America who are pro-life, and do not wish to be forced to become pro-choice, take a stand against this heinous rule. It must not be allowed. Quite frankly, and I will take all backfire for what I am about to say, I would prefer SOPA and PIPA be enacted over this rule. The loss of sharing things on the Internet, though a violation of Free Speech, is not morally wrong. This rule, forcing people to defy their faiths, their very conscience, is against Freedom of Religion, is morally wrong, and is trying to tear down a tradition of a faith that has stood strong for about 1,979 years at least. That faith is Christianity, more specifically, Catholicism. However, again, regardless of your faith, you must agree that America, the land of the free, should not be shutting down a major part of Catholicism within its borders.

      From 1939-1945, the Nazi army under Adolf Hitler murdered 6 million Jews in Europe, and desecrated their bodies by burning them. It is one of the darkest moments in human history. Now, we are facing a new Holocaust. It might not be as dramatic on Earth as the Holocaust of World War II, at least from what we can see, but its burning of bodies will be one that lasts for eternity. You see, in the Holocaust, when they died, the Jews went to their ideal resting place. However, in this modern Holocaust, when the Catholics are unable to willingly follow their conscience, they will be punished in the afterlife. In addition to that, millions of lives will be snuffed out. Millions of children that cannot defend themselves, that have no control of whether or not they see the world, will be killed. Again, I am not trying to change the beliefs of you who are pro-choice. I am just giving what this appears to be from the eyes of one who appreciates the sanctity of all human life, from conception to natural death. A viewpoint that is not shared by Obama, by the HHS. Below are links to a page concerning more information about this rule, as well as a link to send a letter to your Congressman and the Senators of your state, appealing them to stand up against this law, to stand up for Religious Freedom, to stand up for the morals of millions of people in America who will suffer because of this rule, which will come into effect for those who are okay with it on August 1 of this year, 2012. People like me, Catholics, who strongly oppose this bill are given an additional year to apply, to August 1 of 2013. Still, the sooner this grievous rule can be stopped, the better, so that America can still exist as it did when it was founded: a place of freedom, freedom for religious practices, which are threatened now today.

      Thank you for reading, and thank you for your assistance in helping me and millions of other Americans fight this law.

        Right, so after I get one from you I'll trade it back to you while you trade the other one to evolve. So, example:
        My Excadrill <-> Karrablast
        Karrablast <-> Shelmet
        Shelmet (now Accelgor) <-> Excadrill

        don't you need to trade one for the other?

      • mbowerman

        3 years ago

        K, so trade me one of them for now, and I'll trade you something random. Then we'll trade the ones that'll evolve, and then the last trade will be the one I gave you originally.

        It says you need either of the first evolutions. I have both.

      • mbowerman

        3 years ago

        K. I'll look through and see what I have... I think I've only got Accelgor left over, don't know what happened to my Escavalier.

        it would be nice to get those out of the way.

      • mbowerman

        I have, but can still do those if you want.

        Ah, I just thought of something else. Have you done the Karrablast/Shelmet evolutions yet?

      • mbowerman

        3 years ago

        Haha yeah, I was bored. It's not actually one that I plan on keeping, so if you want it for something else we could do a trade after finishing all the ones you need.

      Hey, if no one volunteers to help out with trade evolutions, I can help out in a couple hours. I'm not in a place with good wifi at the moment, but I can let you know when I am. Know how many you want to do?

      • mbowerman

        Just got home, so I'll get online in a minute or two.

      • mbowerman

        I shouldn't be limited on what I can do once I get back home. I'm just at my school right now, and while wifi is okay for computers it's iffy for my DS.

        If you're limited on what you can do for some reason, at least one (I want a Machamp). But then there are three more atm that I don't plan on using, but what the Pokedex entries. So 4 total (Machamp, Slowking, Gorebyss, Huntail)
