I'm losing the war against flu that I've been waging for the past few weeks. Not helped I'm sure by this week's early starts/late nights/long days.
I was meaning to take it easy today, but I wound up pushing through a full day at work to get the functionality I'd hoped to have in place yesterday done.
My eyes hurt - I need to find something to do with my evening which doesn't involve staring at text or a monitor. I suspect as usual that will turn out to be a very early night.Tuesday
Although the campaign I was in has fallen over it was good to note 3 games running plus 6+ boardgamers (including myself) at SAGA.
With that campaign over and the Saturday game drawing to a close it's a good thing I've landed a place in zakzahn
's upcoming D&D4 mini-campaign, or I'd be back to not playing at all.Wednesday
It occurs to me that people who try to recreate their youth are missing the point. It's a lot less effort just to be young in the now, whatever your biological age. (And who really wants to repeat all those mistakes anyway?)
Of course this is coming from someone who spent far too much of his 20's feeling 40, and didn't otherwise have much of a youth worth recreating.
Tagged on to see Prince Caspian on Wednesday evening - led to a midnight bedtime. Watching the movie I just couldn't remember ever reading the book - perhaps I somehow missed it. Thursday
Had a talking to at the Neverwinter group at the end of the session. It was a bit more one-sided that I'd planned -I'd also planned to have it at the start of the session when everyone was in a more equitable state of mind. The campaign has felt morassed for a while now, and a number of the players have spoken to me about issues they're having over the past couple of weeks. Looks like we'll be losing another player which is a great pity*. This time I will have to source a replacement.
They b-team did manage to recover all the bodies -although I started the session worried about another TPK. Once character opted for reincarnation over raising/resurrection and came back as ... an elf. So we now have two elves, a half-elf, a halfling and a token round-ear ( ;-p ).
And they know one of their most potent magical items has fallen into the hands of the bad guys. [Evil DM cackle]
*This is not a guilt trip. Quit it you :p
I'm very grateful to have a property with good drainage - except the top of the driveway/front of the garage which have subsided slightly at some point in the past.The area does drain into a hole in the garden but the soil reaches saturation too quickly. I now have plans to bury a large pipe with holes in the bottom from that point down alongside the driveway.
