v. 1. To raise in rank or status; elevate

So this is the part of the blog (really more of a bulletin board) where I post about an upcoming session of exalted. I didn't actually have a day in mind but I have so much free time this week I figured I might as well move this thing forward. I was thinking either monday, tuesday, or wednesday, but I'm open to ideas for other days. Go ahead and tell me what's good for you in the comments section conveniently provided by the engine. I also want to mention that there is a story component to this whole tournament thingy that I've been doing; remind me on the game day to beat you guys over the head with it.

Microsoft releases "l33t" 360...

(taken from website)

The video game industry's worst kept secret is finally out. Microsoft has today announced that it's adding the Xbox 360 Elite to its current console lineup. The $479 Xbox 360 Elite will join the $299 Xbox 360 Core and the $399 Xbox 360 Premium as Microsoft's high-end console offering. The Elite will be a permanent addition to the Xbox 360 lineup, not a limited-edition offering as rumors have speculated. Microsoft has equipped the new Xbox with a 120GB hard drive and an HDMI port to make the 360 comparable to the PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 Elite won't be replacing either of the current models, mostly because its advanced feature set is designed to appeal to enthusiasts and early adopters--the two consumer groups willing to spend more than $399 on a game console.

"...and Sony laughs all the way to bank (why)?"

the Razorclown Roundup

A link, and a question.

Found a list of free PC games on Digg. Included are Anarchy Online and Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Nick, at least, will remember the good times of Wolfenstein's multiplayer.

Speaking of Neek: when's the next horror session? I'm eager.

Sattyday Game Plans

Ok, the rough idea is that there will be two games this weekend...

One will be Lenny's Exalted, taking place in the afternoon to wrap up the current gladitorial action going on. My guess is that the start time would be around 1pm... the second will take place around the 6 o'clock when I get off work: figure a start time of about 7pm for that. I will be running Star Wars for Cody, Lenny, Nick, and Brian.

Ah the wonders of insomnia

I was really tired tuesday afternoon and slept until 8pm so now I'm awake at this ungodly hour. Since I don't have anything better to do I thought I would post some of my recent webternet finds for you all, this time its just a couple of webcomics.

First up is City of Zeroes , a CoH based webcomic about the miserable lives of the citizens of Paragon City (those people who are always getting mugged). The writing is quite good although it tends toward adult material. The art is simplistic and functional. The full length comic books under the Book tab are highly recommended, here the art is good.

Second is a comic called Goblins . A D&D based comic about well, goblins (those people who are always getting killed by first level adventurers). The writing in this comic is superlative. The characters are interesting and the story is compelling. While the comic has quite a bit of humor, it is still great at being serious (which it does as often if not more than comedy). The art is also pretty good, and it has great action scenes. Not recommended for children due to the graphic violence, highly recommended for everyone else. If you haven't read this comic, do so right now.

It's so shiny and new

As just about all of our friends should know Adrienne and I have moved into our new apartment. We are currently without internets, though we should be getting online very soon. We got enough furniture that pretty soon we should be able to have people over for hanging out and doing the gaming. With that said I would like to schedule some Dragon-Blooded for some time in the near future. I have next week off of school for spring break so that gives me Tuesday and Thursday for doing stuff (Mon, Wed, Fri I still have work). We should also have phone service some time today and we'll give people our phone number when we're sure the phone is working.

But anyway, let me know schedules for next week and we'll get some Dragon-Blooded action going on.

P.S. For those of you wondering, I'm online at school. Yay Sac Link!

Star Wars

I know Neko's been ill, but I'm throwing out my availability to my star wars players. Lenny's free after Tuesday and I've got class until 645 on Wednesday and I'm off work at 6pm on Saturday too. Those days would be acceptable for me to run the game in the evening.

Cody and Neko, let me know!

SPW's 7 year anniversary

Well it's time I start the shameless plug of SPW's 7 yeah anniversary show exactly one month from today, yes that's right boys and girls on April 15th NorCal will be the scene for what has been and we continue to be the indy wrestling show that you can't miss. As things stand now the Anniversary Show will feature the following matches...

A Six Way Hardcore Cage Match with the winner competing in the Supreme Seven Series against whomever holds the SPW Title, starting in May. So far Bubba Blanchard, T-Rent, Luster the Legend, and Rik Luxury have earned spots. Commissioner Ugly has announced that one spot is reserved for somebody and it will be a surprise. The other spot will be earned at the beginning of the Anniversary show.

For the Tag Team Titles the Honor Society will be defending against Virgil Flynn and El Chupacabra.

In a loser leaves SPW Match one of the pillars of SPW , El Flaco Loco, takes on one of the top stars to come out of the SPW Training Academy, Seito Hayashi.

And for the SPW Heavyweight Title a four way, falls count anywhere match between Adam Thornstowe, Vinnie Massaro, Malachi, and Bonzai Bruce Bukkake. And there must be a winner.

So please friends do what you must lie, cheat, and steal but be there in support of me and the rest of SPW because this is our WrestleMania and we will leave nothing short of everything in that very ring. Thank you guys

Oh the thinks you can think.

So Seussical the musical is at Sac State. This is good. I saw'd it last year, it's a-maze-ing.
Jess and I plan to see it next wed. or thurs., seeing as it's cheaper (10$ general 7$ student) on those days. Any one interested, let me know and we can make an outing of it.

In other news , I need schedules so I can plan the climaxy-ness for things horrible.

Um.... yeah. Bored.

We all have titles for our posts nowadays

Just a little random news for everybody.

Yu-Gi-Oh: The abridged series has moved from Youtube to becuase Youtube deleted the first two episodes for copyright infringement, though I think fair parody applies here.

Also a notice to the players in my Exalted game (everybody): The second edition Lunar exalted book comes out April 4th, and so far it looks awesome (It got the overhaul I was hoping for). What this means for you is that the chance to play one of the Lunar exalted once the book comes out. In addition to that I have purchased the wyld book which is okay, but low on the crunch. It does, however, include a guide for making beastman and relic race PCs including exalted beastmen. The half-shark/alligator half-man lunar exalted is going to be an NPC.

While we are on the topic of Exalted I think I will post the results of the first day of the tournament.

Ki > Yushoto Takeshi

All Sun's Dawn > Shatterstone Fists

Raging (Drowning) Tiger < Magenta Shrike

Only a few blocks away...

I would like to let everyone who doesn't know (and anyone who forgot) that Adrienne and I are moving this weekend and we could use as much help as possible. We're going to be doing most of the moving on Saturday so we can set up our new home Sunday. My step-dad is going to rent a U-haul and give us a bunch of furniture so he and my mom can get new furniture, so we'll have a U-haul at our disposal as well as my truck and Lenny said he's going to get his mom's car so we'll have that, but if anyone else has access to a truck or large vehicle, it would help because it would be fewer trips. We're also going to start early (I'm thinking no later than 10, but I don't know when we'll get the U-haul) so yeah, if you're going to help out please show up early to help. There will probably be lunch in it for anyone that helps out. So yeah, see you thens.

War of the Stars

Sounds like sometime on Sunday before Sushi might be good for another round of my Star Wars game.

Nick's good to go, and I've already spoken to Bwian. I'd like to play around noon or so at Great Escape. Lenny, Cody, what say you?

Last Reminder - This Sunday!

To Reiterate

Attention friends!

If you can read this you are invited to a gathering of sushi! On Sunday, March 4th, I will be yet another year older and would love to have all of you join me in celebration.

Slight change of plans, Mana doesn't open until 5pm. So the new location will be Taro's at 4pm unless someone knows of a sushi restaurant that opens earlier on a Sunday. From there we can then head to Drake's wrestling show and boo him till we're blue in the face. Yay!

Oh, and presents, and sushi!
List of People so far:
Me (Chase)
Maybe Brian
Maybe John

Anyone else?
