  1. I'm also in the New Braunfels area, and a member of the New Braunfels Marsch-und Wandergruppe (part of the American Volkssport Association (AVA)). I'm usually out doing the traditional AVA walks in the SA area, and then at the Crocketteers' tailgate before the SAFC matches at Toyota Field when they're playing home games.
  2. Deutsche Welle has some good resources for learning conversational German - http://www.dw.de/learn-german/s-2469 which has a variety of formats (video, podcasts, text, etc.). I'm trying to do the same to improve the small amount that I learned while stationed there.
  3. I started reading the series, but between life, family, work, and school, it's been a while. I need to start it again...
  4. Currently reading "Redshirts" by John Scalzi as well as going through "The Frugal Gourmet" by Jeff Smith
  5. For those in the States, the American Volkssport Association has a listing of clubs and both weekend ("Traditional") or year-round/seasonal events of 5k/10ks for walking, jogging, or running, as well as biking, swimming, and boating. Most year-round or seasonal events are urban trails. Internationally, similar clubs and walks can be found on the Internationaler Volkssportverband (IVV) website.
  6. I found the Critical Hit podcast (http://majorspoilers.com/category/critical-hit/) a while back; the podcast started with an intro to D&D, and then goes into a "live play" of the game. The DM does a good job of explaining rules, actions, etc. Also, for the adventures/campaigns that you can't find for free online, OneBookShelf is converting the guides and manuals into PDFs, available at http://www.dndclassics.com/. Most of the individual adventures are $4.99, bundles are available for some of the full campaigns, and most of the older DM manuals are available for all of the editions (bas
  7. True Neutral Human Ranger (5th Level) Ability Scores: Strength- 12 Dexterity- 12 Constitution- 13 Intelligence- 14 Wisdom- 13 Charisma- 12 Alignment: True Neutral- A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to up
  8. I know that the eye behind the camera is the best equipment, but you can only do so much with a iPhone...
  9. Check out the American Volkssporting Association website under "Clubs"; you can see if any are around, and under "Events" you can check for any local walks.
  10. Seeing all of these great photos makes me want to get a DSLR instead of just the P&S that I currently use... Most of mine are taken on the volksmarches that I go on, or just local area shots. My sets can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/drachenrogue/sets/
  11. I know TSR had solo campaigns for single-player; not sure if any of those are available online or not. You may also want to check used book stores (such as Half Price Books or similar) for some of the older manuals and campaigns; I've found (and bought) some of the older TSR releases of the Dungeon Masters and Player Handbooks, and have seen some of the Forgotten Realms (and other lines) books available also.
  12. Unfortunately yes; some denominations feel they can pick and choose what parts of the Bible apply (or don't apply) to life (for example, same-sex marriage) based on what's going on in the world, while others stand firm in the Word and their doctrine/theology.
  13. And even within denominations, there are splits - Lutheran, for example. Here in the states you have the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), which is more liberal than the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS); the latter two being more conservative than ELCA, and WELS being more than LCMS. There are other smaller Lutheran synods/groups here in the states also. A lot of it is based on the interpretation of scripture, the doctrine/theology based on the interpretation, and unfortunately, world views which some denominations take as highe
  14. I'm retired Air Force; spent 23 years in. I did Human Resources for the full time I was in. For advice - make sure that you get all the info you can for the jobs your interested in (as they may have different criteria), know what the fitness requirements are (as each service is different), and start writing questions down for the recruiters (or here on the boards). If you have any questions about the AF, let me know.
