Grounding

Instructor: RainTurtle
Date: May 7, 2004 (Thursday)

<RainTurtle> Thanks, Bester

<RainTurtle> Good evening, ladies and gentlemen

<Jael> Good evening, Rain.

<RainTurtle> First, the usual disclaimer: This is not a gaming room. If you are looking for a game, you might want to leave, before you get too weirded out

<BlueSprite> lol

<RainTurtle> The topic for this evening is “grounding”….more specifically, what it is used for generally, aside from the obvious

<RainTurtle> First of all, as usual, we must define our terms

<RainTurtle> In the context of this seminar, I am using the term to mean “releasing excess ‘energies’ or emotions, generally into an inaminate object, so to dissipate harmlessly”

Oomph – or Getting results from Psionics (Class 1)

Instructor: RainTurtle
Date: March 23, 2004 (Wednesday)

<RainTurtle> Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to yet another rudimentary psionics seminar

<RainTurtle> This is not a gaming channel. If you are looking for an RPG, you might want to leave now before you get too weirded out

<RainTurtle> I shall not attempt to prove the existence of the subject matter in this class, nor will I entertain debate on that matter during seminar time. If you care to debate it, wait until after the seminar or take it to the main room

<RainTurtle> Further, this is not a children’s channel. Behaviour common to teen chats and the internet slang common to same are inappropriate here.

<RainTurtle> Questions on that?

Visualization

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: March 16, 2004

RainTurtle Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to this week’s psionics seminar.

RainTurtle If you are looking for an RPG, you might want to go to a different channel before you get too freaked out. This seminar concerns real-life psionics, not the gaming sort

RainTurtle That said, I have no intention of “proving psi” nor will I entertain questions on that subject. Deal with it.

Graelb =D

RainTurtle Tonight’s seminar will have a different format than usual. It will be a discussion, rather than a lecture….or perhaps more along the lines of question-and-answer. Even so, please type “ /me raises hand ”

RainTurtle before speaking, so things don’t get too out of hand

RainTurtle As in the main room, fluffiness will get you kicked…although I usually warn first

RainTurtle Questions?

Solar Flares

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: March 4, 2004 (Thursday)

RainTurtle Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Sorry for starting late; some folks appear to have no concept of “manners”

RainTurtle Welcome to this evening’s seminar, a discussion about some common factors which appear to affect psionic activity, stemming from a request for a class about the effects of solar winds, and several queries about the effects of other things….

RainTurtle First, the usual disclaimers….

RainTurtle This is not a gaming channel. If you are looking for an RPG, you might want to leave now, before you get too weirded out.

RainTurtle Also, I am not going to attempt to prove or disprove the existence of “psi”, or anything else, for that matter. If you’re here to debunk, that’s fine, too, if –and only if – you can support your argument in an intelligent and/or amusing manner. If you act like an idiot, I will kick-ban you for “Excessive fluffiness”.

RainTurtle So far so good?

Precognition

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: February 26, 2004 (Thursday)

RainTurtle Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome to tonight’s seminar on the topic of “Precognition”

RainTurtle Usual disclaimers apply: This is not a gaming room. If you are looking for an RPG you might want to leave before you get too weirded out

RainTurtle However, if you are a gamer who is idly curious about the real-world application of this aspect of psionics, feel free to stick around

NekyuToi Thank you for what you are about to discuss rain.

RainTurtle You’re welcome.

The Use of Trance in Psionics (Class 3)

Instructor: RainTurtle and Andy_Hock
Date: February 12, 2004 (Thursday)

<RainTurtle> Good evening, everyone. Welcome to the third installment of the seminar “The Use of Trance in Psionics”

<RainTurtle> As usual, this is not a game room. If you’re looking for the GM workshop, you’re in the wrong channel and may want to leave before we weird you out

<RainTurtle> And, as with the previous sections, Andy and I are presenting this seminar together.

<Andy_Hock> As usual, “raise hand” before asking a question.

<Andy_Hock> (GM Workshop is in #dnd3e, btw . . . )

<RainTurtle> 🙂

<RainTurtle> We touched on and hinted at the fact that the perceptive psionic abilities (ie “psychic” abilities) are improved in a trance state.

Instructors: RainTurtle and Andy_Hock
Date: January 29, 2004 (Thursday)

<RainTurtle> Good evening, all. Welcome to tonight’s seminar, part one of the use of trance in psionics. Andy and I are presenting it together.

<RainTurtle> If you are here looking for a game, you are in the wrong room and might want to leae before you get weirded out

<Andy_Hock> Good evening, all.

<RainTurtle> *glances around* No-one seems to be running away screaming and gibbering into the night, so we might as well get started

<Andy_Hock> Only ground rule I can think of is to indicate by “raising hand” or otherwise if you have a question, and wait to be acknowledged.

<Andy_Hock> Okay, then, we’re starting discussion of Trance. Anyone have an idea what it is?
