      Apparently, I have not beeen very active as of late. I had just gotten a bit bored of the site. I think I need to pop in a bit more. It seems more fresh since I haven't been around much. I have done quite a bit with my new suit of armor. I will try to get some pictures posted up. I am now on my week of vacation that I am going to be doing little more than drinking and cleaning the house...maybe a bit of armor work. The armor isn't turning out much like the images I posted a while ago, there are parts that will be. I don't know...I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

      Anyways...to all my RVB friends, sorry I ditched out on you for so long. I miss you guys and hope to start talking to you again.

    • Happy 420 day / Murder Mystery Cruise

      Happy 420 day everyone.

      My wife and I went on a murder mystery cruise a little while back to celebrate my birthday. We did the cruise without the theme last year, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. There was also a costume contest. We were supposed to dress in 30s style. We did horrible on the mystery, but we won the costume contest. We got a free dinner cruise out of it. I will post a pic of us shortly.

      It has been a while since I have been on rvb. I have had other things keeping me preoccupied.

      Not really much for me to say today. I haven't bought my TV yet. I am going to a NERO South Carolina event tonight.

      Not sure if I mentioned this, but my character has a girlfriend now. It sounds kind of lame, but it has been pretty interesting. I am trying to corrupt her every step of the way. We are both married to other people outside of game, and think it is kind of funny roleplaying with eachother. I will post a pic of her in my images. The pic is kind of fuzzy, but I think her pose in it is pretty hot.

    • Big Screen TV

      13 years ago

      dukratha

      Well one of the things I plan on getting with my part of the Guitar money is a Big Screen TV. I would like to get a flat panel, but I was told I should avoid LCD, and I don't plan on forking out the dough for a plasma.

      I have pretty much decided on getting a DLP rear projection.
      I need to get a new surround sound system that will include component video inputs. And possibly HDMI or DVI or VGA or something. I also need to get a Hi def Satellite receiver for Dish Network.

      Basically I want to have all of the following hooked up to this one television.
      Computer
      DVD/VHS combo
      5 Disc CD Player
      Playstation 2
      Satellite Receiver
      A few open spots for other game systems or something


      Anyone have any suggestions for a brand or type of TV? I want something at least 50", and probably widescreen. I would prefer to be able to adjust the screen width so that I can see non widescreen format in it's intended size...meaning I would rather have black lines on the left and right side of the screen, than to stretch to fit.

      I have seen a few TVs that I think look good on EBay...for around $2K after shipping.

    • Retracted Bid

      13 years ago

      dukratha

      Heh...the MOTHER FUCKER retracted his bid. Well, he is at least refusing to pay. He is going to get some serious negative feedback. But we get stuck with the almost $900 ebay fees. Someone has offered to purchase the guitar with a certified check for $60,000.00, and if that doesn't go through, we can always go the the guy who bid $58,000.00. I need to make sure my father is careful about the certified check, and have him verify it before handing the guitar over. This could just be one big ass scam.

    • Final Bid

      13 years ago

      dukratha

      The final bid came to $58,100.00. I am a little upset. I was hoping for a little more. But coming into this, I was not really expecting this much. From what it seems, my father is no longer trying to screw me out of my half. However, he suggested that we keep a savings account of a portion of the money for the sake of taxes. We seem to both be on even footing. I don't want to leave him out of his portion, yet I don't know if he wants to do such to me. As such we are both trying to play safe, and not affect eachother negatively.

      We used to trust eachother completely. I wish the same could be said today. I have no intention of screwing him over. I never have held such desires. I can only hope he feels the same. For all intents and purposes, this guitar is 100% mine, and I never intended to sell it in the first place. It was his idea. My intention was to pass it as inheritance to my first born son, as he promised to do for me. Since he claims to need the money, and I, myself could certainly use it, it seems to be a logical thing to do. It would hurt our relationship irreparably if he were to take advantage of me in this transaction. He is actually not necessarily entitled to any of this money. However, since I generally hold him in great regard, I have allowed this to transpire. Hopefully all will fare well, except for the sake of my future progeny.

    • 4th or 7th most watched item on ebay

      Ebay Pulse
      It seems there are a LOT of people interested in my guitar. Checking the above link will show you that it is in the top ten of the most watched items currently on Ebay. I can't tell if it is supposed to be 4th or 7th though. Can anyone tell me?

      Edit:
      Now it appears to be either the second or the third most watched.

    • Getting a nice chunk of change

      13 years ago

      dukratha

      In 1952 (before my father was even born) my grandfather purchased a brand new Fender Telecaster. 4 years later, my father was born. He had played it all the while. In 1957 my grandfather was shot and killed in a hunting accident.

      The 52 Tele has been inside its originial gig bag ever since. We have taken it out to show it off from time to time. I almost attempted to string and play it, but decided against it to try to keep it in good shape.

      My Father has decided to put this guitar on Ebay. I am a bit upset about it, because I would like to keep it in the family and eventually pass it to my son (if I ever have one). But in the few days it has been listed, I am starting to think of all the things my half of the money could be used for.

      The bidding started Jan-26-06 23:31:44 PST, at one penny. At this point in time the bid is up to $43,100.00. We are all a little shocked at what people would be willing to pay for this item. It is very rare, and in very good condidtion for a 54 year old guitar. I have found that many famous musicians covet this particular year and model. And from what my father said, someone from Aerosmith has called inquiring about it.

      Here is a link to the auction if you would like to keep an eye on it.

    • This past weekend

      13 years ago

      dukratha

      I am sorry for not being as active as I once was...I don't think I have posted in the forum in quite some time.

      If anyone is interested, I decided to go to Georgia for a NERO event this past weekend. One of my friends' characters got trapped and needed my help.

      When I looked at the web site, I followed the directions to get to their site. When I got to the site I found it to be the wrong one. I guess they had posted different directions to a different site in their forum. After my incredibly boring 5 hour drive I still had another 3 hours to go. I was tired, grumpy and very close to just turning around and going back home.

      I finally made it to the site and felt like doing nothing but going to bed. Unfortunately the people I roomed with were very talkative, and I did not sleep. I did a bit of out of costume roleplay, which is very weird. Then finally went to sleep. The room I was in must have been the one closest to the heater. It had to have been 80-90 damn degrees in there. That and the lack of sleep on Friday caused me to need a nap on saturday night. From this nap, I was unwakeable.

      I enjoyed the event, as far as the time I was awake anyways. And due to the event I ended up gaining another level. I am now 27th. That is considered almost high level. So I am kind of getting up there. I just wish I could play more often.

      Yes I am a scrooge. I do not like christmas. It is partly due to my religious beliefs (or lack thereof) and partially due to what christmas has become. A commercial shopping holiday.


      By the way, this is my favorite christmas song. Warning..it has obscene language. The internet lists several people as the people who wrote this so I won't post that.



      Quite often I get a thinking
      How as kids we got by
      Like christmas time in our house
      We couldn't even afford a fire

      But we made do in our house
      Back then when I was young
      Dad used to suck a peppermint
      And we'd all sit round his tongue

      We couldn't afford no tinsel
      On our christmas tree
      So we'd just wheel old grandad in
      And make the old cunt sneeze...atchoo

      Wheel him round the other side granny...atchoo

      Well things change so bloody fast
      I got children now of me own
      Now I heard 'em unwrap their presents
      Last night when I got home

      Santa claus you cunt
      Where's my fucking bike
      I've unwrapped all this other junk
      There's nothing what i like

      I've wrote you a letter
      And i've come to see you twice
      You geriatric wanker
      Where's my fucking bike

      If i wanted a pair of fucking shoes
      I would've fucking asked
      This cowboy suit and ping-pong set
      You can stick right up your arse

      You went and mucked my order up
      It's enough to make you spew
      It's not just me that's pissed off
      My sister's cheesed off too

      Santa claUs you cunt
      Where's my fucking pram
      You promised me you fucking cunt
      You know who I am

      'Cos I'm the little girl
      You made sit right on your hand
      Never mind your ho ho ho
      Where's my fucking pram

      Next time i go to see him
      I'm gonna punch him in the guts
      Set his fucking reindeer loose
      Kick rudolf in the nuts

      Just you wait til next year
      'Til we get to that store
      A mate of my little sister
      'll come stomping through that door

      Hey mums and dads just check his breath
      And watch his bloodshot eyes
      Don't listen to him boys and girls
      'Cos he tells fucking lies

      He's a pisstake and a pervert
      He's not even fucking bright
      'Cos that fucking wanker
      Forgot my fucking bike

      Hey santa claus you cunt
      Where's my fucking bike
      I've unwrapped all this other junk
      There's nothing what I like

      I wrote you a fucking letter
      And I came to see you twice
      You geriatric wanker
      Forgot my fucking bike

      Yeah I'm gonna tell my dad on you
      Fucking punch your head in....cunt
      I saw mummy sucking santa

      Yeah it is supposed to be Du'Kratha. I have just seen too many errors from logging into websites using the ', often very detrimental. And being a web designer myself, I know how apostrophes can screw things up, unless your code is set to use them. So I just exclude the apostrophe from all of my usernames, and try to use it somewhere else, where it is less likely to mess things up.

      So hows the new body armor coming, and when can we see some pics of it?

    • dukratha

      14 years ago

      NERO has 4 classes and several Races. All races but human have advantages and disadvantages. Skills are purchased using build points(points based off your experience points). Any character can purchase any non-race-specific skill, but the build cost varies depending upon class.
      The 4 Classes:
      Fighter - Primarily uses fighting skills
      Scholar - Primarily uses magic skills
      Rogue - Primarily uses stealth and alchemy skills
      Templar - mix of fighter and scholar

      Here is how one fight might take place:
      As a level 23 fighter I have 40 some odd body(hit points). I used many of my build points to purchase 10 Weapon Proficiencies for Long Sword. (long sword base damage = 2) 2 + 10 = 12.
      I swing and call my damage "12 normal." If I hit my oponent without him blocking, he deducts 12 from his amount of body. We would continue this until one of us is at or below 0 body and incapacitated.
      At this point a celestial(offensive magic) scholar casts a spell at me. "I call forth a magic missile 5," He then throws a small packet of bird seed at me, and it hits. I deduct 5 points from my remaining body.
      My character can also use alchemy(gases), so I turn and throw an orange bird seed packet at him stating "Sleep Gas Poison." I hit him and he falls to sleep.
      An earth(healing and necromantic magic) scholar comes up to me and touch casts, "I call upon the earth to heal light wounds 5." I add 5 body to my remaining body.
      At this point a Rogue sneaks up on me and strikes me on the shoulder blade (safer than the base of the skull) and says "Waylay." I fall to the ground not taking damage, but unconcious.
      The healer tries to run away, and the Rogue is able to do a lot more damage hitting him in the back with his back attacks and the healer doesn't have as much body as a fighter so he falls very quickly.
      The rogue steals all the items from all the combatants(items are represented by signed paper tags), Delivers a three count killing blow and runs away.
      After their 5 minute death count, all the combatants go to an Earth circle of power as spirits to attempt resurrection.

      Those are the basics. It is, however, a pretty complex game, with many different effects, spells, skills, and rules. If you would like you can download an abridged version of the rulebook from the link below. They are supposed to be putting out a new version, but we have been waiting for that for a while now.

      Ok, I followed your link and looked at a bunch of pictures but I still don't understand the basic combat premise... do you just like go at it with the swords and shields and then hits are counted like fencing?

      I did the NERO thing for one night. But that's cause it was 5 mins from my house and I went to the Monster House and they gave me an outfit and sword for free. It was fun, but I never got too into it. Where do you play?

    • TUNNELRAT

      14 years ago

      It would be so great if one of the castles in Britain was available for stuff like this. Swim across a moat,scale the ramparts, storm the portcullis and breach the keep...

      The LARP I play is pretty much like playing Dungeons and Dragons, but we dress up like our characters, and hit eachother with foam weapons and spell packets, instead of rolling dice. For more info you can try www.nerolarp.com

    • dukratha

      I made all of the armor but the bracers. I bought them before I learned how to make armor, and I could easily make them now. My next suit will make this one look like crap, if I can ever get off my lazy ass to make it.
