Path to the Grail

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

So, I have been reading this a second time through as it was mentioned on facebook and have made two new discoveries that had previously gone unnoticed:

1. the source of the name okka-wakka

2. random axe of violence = random acts of kindness (?)



Also, I highly recommend that anyone interested read through all QoP stuff, and Krsto, and battle of the head separator and possibly even hope's last stand in a row, as virtually everything that happened was mentioned or referenced in some way during this already.

For example, Brikwars 2010...

EDIT: I still haven't given up on BW:TCG either.

Because I had to move and then my bosses put me on a project where I got stuck doing 250 hours of unpaid overtime on top of my regular full-time schedule. Why, what have you contributed?

Seriously though, since I was moving and everything's packed up into boxes, I've been putting my free time into updating the rulebook instead. I haven't uploaded in awhile, but work is still going on behind the scenes.

Just a quick question...how well does Lego pay. Nothing exact, just it'd be cool to know.

Yeah, just like how Warhead's working on Fico.

Fair's fair, Warhead did pretty much say Fico got cancelled and hinted it would be a MSO instead a while back.

Generally a good chunk less than what other companies pay for the same jobs. Everyone who works here knows they could be getting paid a lot more somewhere else.

I used to make pretty crazy money because I was working freelance and could set my own hours and rate. I made $33k in a single month once when I was just starting out, but I was working so many hours it just about killed me. Now I'm just salary, so I this year I'm trying to keep my schedule down to 60-80 hours a week when I can. Which is a big improvement.

I guess if you enjoy what you're doing it's not that bad.

That is pretty important. Take my dad, for example, he makes a lot of money, but his job is literally killing him.

I love that about 90% of my motivation to get a job is to have money for Legos
