you are lightseagreen

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

Artfully dodged from [ profile] dalmeny, who appears much more literate and erudite than I do when she does this meme. =9)

Books I am currently reading: The Right To Live by Dominic Covey and Skullduggery by Robin Laws. Blame! by Tsutomu Nihei. Only just finished Messiah by S Andrew Swann (Book 3 of the Apotheosis Trilogy), and just starting Dragon's Ring by Dave Freer.

Books I am writing: Runeclaw (which will not be released as there are too many clearance issues). Fate of Empires (which may be released into the wild if I feel it is worthy). Does translating The Black Book (and the rest of the French editions of Nephilim) into English count? An index of role-playing game systems (ie the resolution mechanics they use), constructed mainly for my own amusement and information. And very minor author credit on a project that I may not reveal at this time (if in fact, it is ever published).

Books I love most: The Last Unicorn by Peter S Beagle. Waiting For The Galactic Bus by Parke Godwin. Dogsbody by Diana Wynne Jones. A Night In The Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny. Bloodhype by Alan Dean Foster. Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold. The Time Master Trilogy by Louise Cooper. The Sure Death of a Mouse by Dan Crawford. Subject to change without notice on all but the first.

The last book I received as a gift: Hmmmm. We are setting the wayback machine to extreme overdrive here. Probably Annalise by Nathan Paoletta.

The last book I gave as a gift:Apocalypse World by Vincent Baker and Steal Away Jordan by Julia Ellingboe.

The nearest book on my desk: I don't actually believe there is a book on my desk at this time. Although there are a lot of ebooks in my computer on my desk. Does that count? Without stretching though I can reach a copy of Dragon's Ring by Dave Freer, Messiah by S Andrew Swann, The Good, The Bad, and The Uncanny by Simon R Green, The Alchemy of Stone by Ekaterina Sedia, Loot The Burning House by Chuan Lin, The Blossoms Are Falling by Rich Soto and Luke Crane, The Vondish Ambassador by Lawrence Watt-Evans, Gilded Latten Bones by Glen Cook, Geist by Philippa Ballantine, Death of a Starship by Jay Lake, Game of Cages by Harry Connolly, and The Diamond Throne by David Eddings. If I were to stretch, the number of available books rises exponentially.

Last book I bought for myself: The last actual physical book I paid for would have been Agatha H and the Airship City by Phil and Kaja Foglio. The last physical book I received was Messiah by S Andrew Swann (from a preorder). The last ebook I bought was (checks logs for yesterday) Skyward Steel by Kevin Crawford.

A meme artfully dodged from [ profile] chadu and [ profile] gbsteve.

Here's the list of the 50 best core rules, as scored on, bold the ones you own.

Da Lizt )

Now that was easy, wasn't it. I didn't even have to think about most of the list. Incidentally the italicized ones are the one's I've played (or more likely, gamemastered). <grin> But I'm still wondering how come Blue Planet managed to get listed twice. [And I do wonder if playing Rogue Trader (the original, not the game produced last year) counts for Dark Heresy.] <grin>

If I was a summonable monster, what ritual would you use to summon me?

reverancepavane: (Cthulhu)
In 2008, reverancepavane resolves to...
Become a better posthumanism.
Find a better paranoia.
Get back in contact with some old humans.
Put fifty albedo anthropomorphics a month into my savings account.
Admit my true feelings to traeemery.
Cut down to ten girl genius a day.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

I'm not sure I can morally support any type of "-ism," so I'll just have to become a better posthuman instead. Unfortunately I don't quite have the nanotech and biotech base to implement The Eternal Masquerade or I'd be there already.

And most of my friends will agree that my current selections of paranoia would be hard to improve on (although I did stop collecting it after The Crash).

Save the Albedo universe? I just want to know what happens next. Although I must write that review of Albedo:Platinum Catalyst sometime. I think it artfully misses the entire point of telling stories at times of war, but probably makes a dandy set of wargame rules – if you make the assumption that the soldiers in the Albedo universe have actually managed to learn the intricacies of warfare in one minor war and decided that the US Combat Model is the best thing since sliced carrots (something which numerous Kangaroo exercises have disillusioned me that there is any truth in that statement).

[ profile] traemery: I'm evil. And proud of it.

And only ten Girl Genius in a day!! I suppose I'll have to abandon my Time Viewer™ experiments then. And I was looking forward to seeing what was going to happen after [CENSORED BY THE TIME PATROL].

When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride. Preferably not "As you wish" or the Inigo Montoya speech.

Love is pain, highness. Anyone who says different is selling something.

Maybe this says a bit too much about me...

MUSIC MEME (Answered)

Put your music player on random.

– Post the first line from the first 32 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
– Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
– Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
– Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING

the songs )

The answers )

Good Luck.

Whilst I may not agree with the detailed explanation of my personality type, it was interesting to see how I compared with the majority of people that did this test. These factors being more appropriate than the conclusion the quizz author has drawn from them.

Having a broad focus does not make one a Daydreamer... )

Yoinked from [ profile] molokov_au.

Bold all of the following TV shows which you’ve ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime. Bold and Italicize a show if you’re positive you’ve seen every episode of it. If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

I've watched far too much television )

What Tree Are You? (Celtic astrology)
created with

You scored as The Rowan

In Celtic astrology, you're a Rowan tree. The animal symbol that accompanies this tree is the dragon. The ancient Druids say Rowan people have powerful imaginations and are idealistic, progressive, humanitarian, spiritual and good with change. However, Rowans may be prone to restlessness, quarreling, impatience or aloofness.

Always liked the rowan tree – almost as much as I dislike rowan berries. For much the same mythological reasons. <grin> If I remember correctly my birth-tree is actually the vine. Now all I have to do is work out where my copy of Doloreaux is to determine the Gifts of the Way of the Rowan.
