  1. I have always wondered about on/off Aons such as an Aon Edo, imagine an Aon Edo engraved on a plate then part of the plate is cut away and can be placed back in, to complete the Aon and activate a shield. The same concept could be applied to other Aons such as Daa to create a rudimentary energy weapon or even with Ehe to create a flamethrower. My only questions are whether intent would be a roadblock, and wether a non-Elantrian could activate it if an Elantrian was to inscribe it first.
  2. Ahhh, I'm sorry to hear that cookies were the bomb, and in most cases delicious snacks
  3. Rules of what? I've been out of the game for a while are we organized or something now?
  4. I have been a member of the Shard since early 2017. I have spent time lurking, theorizing, and RPing but there has only been one post I've been proud of, tonight that number might have changed to two. If you need a little positivity, or a smile don't be afraid to reach out. I'm here to listen and try to help. 

  5. The last three months have been a whirlwind not only globally and nationally but also personally. Me and my fiance of 2 years parted ways and it really tore me up. I would be driving and have to pull over to cry because a song on the radio reminded me of her. She loved my parents and brothers as well as my aunts, uncles, and grandparents, not to mention my pets. And they all loved/love her, I remember one day I had had a bad day at work and came home to a classy trenchcoat and hampster (initially named Eshonai but renamed to Nippers) She was there when my old one-eared cat passed away in the same week as my dog, She went to the animal shelter with me and we found a one-eyed cat she named Kaz, after a favorite character from a book. Our first date was to the Skyward release party, and she waited overnight with me at Barns and Nobles to be in the front of the line to get Starsight. I could go on for pages about the experiences we shared but I don't want this post to be a memoir. I intend it to be context for what I'm about to say. There is a line from a book titled Death comes for the Arch Bishop, it goes 'I shall not die of a cold, my son. I shall die of having lived' that line resonates with me. In the grand scheme of things I haven't been around for that long but I have faced severe anxiety, a psychiatric disorder, and now my first love riding off into the sunset with another man. But even now I think to myself I shall not die of a cold I shall die of having lived and it fills me with hope for the future. Times are tough and life beats the crap out of you but when I die it's not going to be from a cold, or break up or from anxiety or from anything of that sort. When I die I will die from having lived. When my time comes I'm going to look back on my life and be grateful for the chance to have lived and grown even though it sometimes hurts. Right now I feel happy, hopeful, and mellowed and I want to share it with everyone. If you need a digital hug I'm here to give you one and say it's okay, I'm here to tell you there is hope and happiness waiting. I promise that even if it feels that way it won't kill you, please don't be afraid to live.
  6. That's what I like to see!
  7. From the album Southern Scadrian Medallions

    I have been messing around with circuitry patterns and was reminded of the medallions in Bands of Morning. It has several inaccuracies, for starters, I find it unlikely that the southern Scadrians would use the Steel or Feruchemical Alphabet, but hey it looks cool and I can always make another one when we get more information. If you have any ideas on how to improve the design I'd love to hear them. You can find an STL on Thingiverse.
  8. Sorry for the double post but I actually run a small java server, it's whitelisted but if anyone here is interested in playing on it we'd love to have you!!
  9. I've been playing modded too!! I recently put together a modpack with a bunch of stuff like tinkers contact, twilight forest, mo creatures, zawa, and the biome bundle. More time to play has been the best part of the quarantine so far!!
  10. Happy Birthday!

      Aww, y'all are the best

  11. Have you ever had Dr pepper cream soda? It changed my life. I'm not much of a Coke or Dr pepper guy but DANG, that stuff is good.
  12. Being fairly introverted I was totally on board with the social distancing, I figured I would hang out at home, make some stuff and generally have a good time. But now things aren't seeming so great. I work on a on call basis, when someone books an escape room I come into work, but now that no one is booking I'm not working so I'm not getting paid. My laptop broke and I lost a bunch of files trying to fix it, my SLA 3D printer broke as well, and now to top it all off the power just went out. Every time I think of something to do I realize that it wouldn't work. I can't sculpt stuff because I use an bake clay and have no power, I want to print some minis but no printer and no power, how about building something out of foam, my foam cutter needs electricity Wich I happen to have none. I'm glad I'm not in a hospital with Covid 19 or anything, but life in a world ravaged by precautionary measures sucks.
  13. She is doing great!! Just this morning she brought me a present! She showed up at the back door holding a dead bird in her mouth, she was very proud and so was I. This is a rather big accomplishment seeing as she only has one eye... For best results I would use a crooked neck squash, in a pinch pumpkins can be used. If you are feeling CRAZY you can use a banana squash but I really wouldn't, banana squash are much better as soup. And to answer the question that is at the forefront of your minds, Yes I have been keeping an eye on all my friends as well as my enemies.
  14. I am absolutely blown away!! Bravo!!!!
  15. THAT'S AWSOME!! What was your project?
