Dumb question: the armour and clothing link (fallout wiki) can I take from the other categories as well? i.e 'Items' 'Ammunition' etc.

Think it's probably mine. Been away for a couple days, something came up and I couldn't give notice. Am I OK to post?

Okie so who's turn is it now? (I assume we can hold fire and not shoot Marcus without needing to make a perception/reflex roll?)

You have three months. “The first draft of a book—even a long one—should take no more than three months, the length of a season.”

Longer than that and it gets stale, and you end up a tourist trapped in it.

So I started writing

Then another writer I follow on Facebook (Jon Acuff) posted a little update about just setting a mundane time, for an hour, and writing. It's a little thing, coinciding with an article I read about things you didn't know Google could do, like, wait for it, set a timer.

These things have all rolled into one another. I set the Google timer, and I start writing. I don't write for an hour at a time, instead it's 15 to 20 minutes at a time. I will sometimes run 2-3 of these blocks together, other times I break it up. I still have other things I have to do, but it's given me more focus on my writing, and made me realize how to better spend time at the computer. Less time on Facebook, less time reading random articles and looking at photo websites.


Makes me think of the Pomodoro technique where you basically work in 25 minute chunks, taking 5 minute breaks in between. I use it now and then to get myself back on track when I'm overwhelmed by all the crap at work. Haven't had much luck using it for writing, but that's because my muse is a whiny little &^%$@...

I really like the bit about keeping a draft down to 3 months. I can see the wisdom in it.

Characters can throw any object they can lift, up to a heavy load. You cannot throw your maximum load, only drop it adjacent to you. Picking up an object is a move action, while throwing it is a standard action, so it's possible to pick up and throw an object in one round.

The distance you can throw an object is based on its weight and your Strength. You can throw your heavy load 5 feet, which is also the base range for throwing. For every 5 points of Strength you have over the minimum required to lift an object as a heavy load, double the base range.

Improvised thrown objects have a range increment of 10 feet.

So, a Large PC with a 22 Strength wants to throw a 200-pound ally. IIRC, it takes a 15 Strength for 200 pounds to be a heavy load. The Large PC has an equivalent 27 Strength for carrying capacity (IIRC). That puts the Large PC 10 points over the minimum required to lift the ally as a heavy load. The Large PC can throw his ally 20 feet.

Shooting or Throwing into a Melee: If you shoot or throw a ranged weapon at a target engaged in melee with a friendly character, you take a –4 penalty on your attack roll. Two characters are engaged in melee if they are enemies of each other and either threatens the other. (An unconscious or otherwise immobilized character is not considered engaged unless he is actually being attacked.)

Not much has changed, I am still running under a pretty heavy load, and I have had a few health issues the last few weeks. It's nothing serious or life threatening, just draining. I was feeling really down, to tell the truth.

But one of those list of bullet points that float around the internet was posted to my Facebook page, a list of writing tips from one of the writers I personally respect, one Mr. Stephen King. Most of it was stuff I already knew, but there was something that stuck out, a writing tip I'd not encountered before, or if I had, that seed fell on the sidewalk and not the soil.

You have three months. “The first draft of a book—even a long one—should take no more than three months, the length of a season.”

Longer than that and it gets stale, and you end up a tourist trapped in it.

I still have other things I have to do, but it's given me more focus on my writing, and made me realize how to better spend time at the computer. Less time on Facebook, less time reading random articles and looking at photo websites.

I am writing now, some here, but the vast majority is on my novel.

I have stayed up late working on the story, and I have woken up in the middle of night, and I've gotten up early to work on it. I am aiming to have the first draft complete, cult of done, by either Halloween or my birthday (about a week later).

I'm writing this &^%$@, and it's going to get done.
