This is the "Military Paths" portion of a much bigger directed graph. Inspired by some things in Burning Wheel and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, I've been thinking about a game where moving job-to-job replaces all the things that skills, classes, and feats do in D&D - but because there are many ways to travel the system, you still get a lot of choice at any point about what your character will become next. You'd get some choices within each career node too - how long you stay in that career gives you certain options for your character that would affect play directly. It's all very vague and notional at the moment, but I'm having fun with it and it's making my gears spin a bit, which I like. If you start with a character who's, say, 35 years old, you'd have to determine (by a system I've thought a little about but haven't committed myself to) what he or she'd been doing since about age 10 - already, the moment you sit down, you have the basis of an excellent character backstory combined seamlessly with what the character can do in the game.Just something I'm thinking about.
it took my kids a few tries to get used to the 'new oatmeal,' but they now like it- my husband loves it and requests this 'oatmeal drink' often!hot oatmeal breakfast drink (atole)
an original recipe by rachelle1 heaping cup oats (instant or regular, both work well!)
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups milkheat water, salt and sugar in pan until boiling. add oats, cook for 2-3 minutes.
meanwhile, heat up milk in microwave for 2 minutes or bring to an *almost* boil in another pan.
pour milk in blender and add hot cooked oatmeal mixture.
start blender on low and hold onto the lid with a towel- this is a full load for a blender so start slow.
increase blender to high and blend until smooth.
serve in mugs. add a sprinkle of cinnamon if you like!
The Entertainment Tonight clip from before was only the start. Welcome, ladies and gents, to the full trailer for The Losers.
And yes, everyone should be saying “I’m the Black Macguyver… Blaguyver” by the end.
