*toss, toss, toss, drop, crack, ouch*

Picked up an instructional DVD on contact juggling/sphereplay/making like David Bowie's hand-double in "Labyrinth." Thusfar I've been pretty good at flipping a plastic orb over the tips of my fingers a few times, and we've discovered that a 2.5" ball really disrupts a combat map in D&D.

This will be my new obsession until probably January.

*grin* I picked an orb and an instructional DVD up from TRF last year - we ought to get together and practice (standing on opposite sides of the room, of course...)

Sounds like fun! I'm going to try to scrounge another practice orb in the near--are you going to TRF anytime soon? Butterfly's going in two weeks, but I'm too obsessive to wait that long :)

Well, I know I won't have enough money to go until at least my next paycheck, which is Friday after next (1 1/2 weeks). I'll talk to John and see what he might want to do, as far as TRF goes.

As your DM, who you may address as "Goddess of All She Surveys on the Combat Map", I am now officially disallowing those darn things from being anywhere in sight in our games. That clear plastic sphere was more destructive than the giants! :)

Then find something to fidget with that won't re-enact a scene from an Indiana Jones movie when you drop it!

That takes out the rubber snakes and plastic Nazis. Damn, you're harsh.

I'm sure some God somewhere will give you a huge see-through ball of death. All it takes is a simple alignment change. Killing a few babies and all that...

Ah, my character's sort of a Baron Munchausen. He'd dig on an insane glass ball of death.

You're giving the DM ideas, this is a bad thing... :)

Not if it means I get to play with my big glass ball again!

No, you do not. The Goddess of All She Surveys on the Combat Map has spoken!

But maybe you'll run into a giant, evil glass globe in game... that you have to destroy! Muahahaha...

Also, on a related note, looks like people other than you are spreading the torture that is The Apple!

Wow! That's some raw, undiluted hatred there :)

He was ejaculating hate! That takes talent.

Of course, every time I think of that movie, I end up with one of the damn songs stuck in my head. Curse you, Williamson! KHAAAAAAAN!

Now you just need to get some of spheres you can load up with glowsticks and you can lightstick-rave without the risk of thwacking someone in the head with a pseudo-firepot.

Ooohhh...have you seen those on a website somewhere?

Not really.. other than those glowstick filled Nerf balls they used to sell.
