I find myself saying things like, “I support the alternative fuel (particularly electric) car movement. I’d love to test drive a Volt, or own a Prius. Some day, when they’re cheaper, I will.” (Or, in a variation: “No way would I pay $35k for a car, but I mos def support the move away from gasoline.”)
But what’s the point of believing I support the direction of the industry (despite its flaws) if I’m not putting money into it to actually support it? It won’t go anywhere if people don’t spend money on the things.
Fer skerious, though, there’s no way I’m spending $35k on a car.
I sing along with almost every song in San Andreas, occasionally missing turns and stops because I’m thinking back to when I first heard whatever jam it was.
Unlike whichever GTA I played in high school programming class, I’m playing this one solo and am interested in more than just running from the police and over people. Despite completing several missions, decking out in green (and an eye patch!), and trying to find some real plot here (and some damn money!), though, it’s not resonating with me as much as it could.
And I know how much it could, because I just finished Saints Row. Oh, hell yes.
So I’m in a D&D 3.5 campaign now. And I’m playing a Druid, which is kinda exciting–it’s the first time I’ve played a Druid at a high enough level that I can shapeshift, and I just tipped 5th level on Sunday. (Campaigns always fizzle out early…)
Anyway, the campaign is a hodgepodge of standard D&D and Sandstorm, and summoning restrictions by the GM mean that my spell list involves a fair bit of swapping out that’s a little annoying to manage. For instance, I’m using Sandstorm’s “Desiccate” instead of “Summon Nature’s Ally II”, since I can’t summon.
Since Druids are the type to prepare a few spells per day from a large list of available spells, I needed a quick way to see all of my available options without flipping through two sourcebooks and my swap list at the table. Then I wanted to avoid having the jotted down short-hand description of the spell that I refresh every “day” as I try out new spells.
Pain in the ass.
A bit of Googling lead me to conclude that with the advent of D&D 4e, many of the 3.5e resources… disappeared. And by disappeared, I mean:
