Game Nite

A 23-post collection

Fun was had. Friction is generating.

So we had some decent RP. Not a lot of decent fights, but some decent RP. We had all players but I didn't have enough warning to buy Krispy Kremes for the entire group. I let them know though.

I might be on the hook for a gigantic box of doughnuts, next fortnight.

Highlights:

  • Barbarian too scared to confront my Tief so he sent a note up with his invisible servant
  • My Tief gave him lines ["I will not shoot my allies" x 100, and "I will not attack nobles" x 100]
  • Barbarian then adds paper to his notes and doesn't do the lines. IDK what he's doing with the damn pencil, but this is going to haunt Herr Fucknuts every single time he wants something
  • An attempt at prisoner exchange - me for the two in jail - failed and I added to the jail populace. Dangit
  • Got out with a forged document that we don't know is forged [Barbarian does!]
  • Hiding a Zhent for 10 days whilst we were also under moderately close attention by the law
  • Attempting to get reason out of a Nimblewright that was NOT as clever as its progenitor
  • City Watch always arriving 10 minutes late with Starbucks just to give us all aggro
  • Fucking going after what boils down to a magic rock as the chain of custody gets longer and longer and LONGER... [I started humming Yakety Sax at this point]
  • ...aaaaannnd it's now in the hands(?) of Xanathar and his thief's guild

Next sesh has GOT to be a dungeon crawl. Lots of fighting and whatnot. I know one player who's eager for that noise.

Today... after I do the Instant... I have nothing planned and I want to enjoy it.

Let's get going on that.

Finally! Rest... (sort of)

Well, today is the 7th day of feeding the starters, and I now have them resting in the fridge so that I have time for other things. Like taking a firkin BREAK.

It's the thirteenth this month, which happens to be a Friday, so there is an almost mandatory uptick in gambling. I won't be having a flutter via $1 scratchie. I am content in hoping my "cheesy bread" will actually turn out okay.

Chaos has swimming and I have D&

Shenanigans!

It's the morning after the night before and, despite having D&D, I'm reasonably well-rested.

The session ended early - about 9:30ish because new shenanigans should really include more people at the table than my immediate family members plus one.

Boy howdy, there were shenanigans.

The rescue of the nobles in the house turned into a clusterfuck when the Lord told us his wife was indirectly responsible for the fireballing of some innocent children. This made the Barbarian rage and

GAME NITE!

Two of our players are out on other business, and we still have four players, so the sesh will be going ahead. WOO!

Character hints ahoy :D gonna drop some backstory clues and hope other players pick it up. I might get a Glare from the DM, but damnit, I love having a few gems for excavation.

Today includes unfuckening the house again, one thousand words, and of course the D&D. It's gonna be fun.

Tomorrow... I am going to

That Went... Okay?

The first sesh of the year and we have a completely new player with us, as in, their first ever game of D&D was with us last night. So of course, puns, shenanigans, and at least half an hour debating the renovations we were making to our base of operations.

Fantasy The Block, coming soon to an adventuring table near you.

Lowkey though, I do want to create a replica of this place in Minecraft, even though that's pretty terrible

GAEM TYM!

Tonight is game night and I am so pumped about it that I awoke at 3AM and had various difficulties sleeping the remainder of the morning.

I am going to be WRECKED tomorrow. Be warned.

With the grace of the Powers That Be, and a LOT of caffeine, I and my character will survive the evening. I plan on having fun with everything, no matter what.

I also have to unfuck the house today. A PLN somewhat helped by the fact that

Level Up!

My Tiefling Monk [and Nightcrawler Expy] hit level 2 and gained Ki points... Alas, we missed out on RP of a cool training montage. So I did what any writer would do - I wrote five pages of training montage to kind'a share how cool it all looked inside my head.

...I may be forced to DM something because of this, IDK.

Maybe authors shouldn't be allowed to play D&D because we're wont to pull shit like this.

Anyway. 'Tis

Dee un Dee! Dee un Dee!

It's D&D night and I am planning to at least combat the excess of the evening with the abstinence during the day. I shall be a good little nugget and expand my fasting window so I can gorge -as I inevitably do- when the game is on.

My Beloved is taking this old car of mine as a lost cause. Even if the motor is cheaply fixable, it's not worth keeping around. So... in perfect logic, they went and ordered

So That Happened...

We had a short session last night because (a) One party member was away sick and (b) the plot arrived quicker, but...

Despite all that...

I was bloodied twice in one fight, surprise-attacked by a troll, and learned that my faux german accent was too much for our new DM so I'm toning it down next sesh.

It's not easy being squishy.

Thankfully, I have tactics of a sort. Tactics and ten darts. I'll have to engineer a system to make sure

GAME NITE WOOT WOOT

I am so excited. I am going to play a slutty, slutty Tiefling who's basically Fantasy Nightcrawler. Because I rolled low for my constitution, I gotta clear with the DM about whether or not using a plotline to fix that could be a thing.

If not, it's still early enough to re-roll that and retcon some shit. We shall see.

I got way ahead on my word count, yesterday, which means my novel writing needs only 300-ish words before my 3K for

Aftermath, Part 1

Fun was had, last night. Fun will be had during the wee small hours of tomorrow's AM. I will be WRECKED, but I'm going to enjoy it.

There are the remains of two cakes in the house. One is almost doomed, the other is only initially doomed. I've gained some significant weight, and I might diet all through the rest of this month and the next one... but not today.

Today, I have treats.

I also have a Tiefling Monk who's basically

Shenanigans!

Early cleaning == maybe time to go out and get a replacement autohinge because dummins I broke the other one... but potentially not time to install it because Game Nite plus writerly nonsense plus... whatever.

I'm planning on breaking Keto this evening and Madness Burgers are on my menu!

...also potentially a shitton of forbidden fruit, so to speak. All the things that are bad for me but taste SO delicious. I may gain an entire kilo from the feast.

Worth it.

Eat,

Oof

It wasn't as late as it could have been, but it still ran me a teeny bit ragged. I hope not ragged to the point where I fall over with this damned ekka flu.

Chaos brought it home. Mayhem caught it. I'm... in close vicinity to both these darling little vectors of mine.... Getting run down is a guarantee for catching Lurgi.

I owe y'all a story, too. But if I need to take a week off from the novel so I

Challenge #02422-F232: Crit Happens

Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don't find out 'til too late that he's been playing with two queens all along. ~Terry Pratchett

Also known as being a DM. (Dungeon Master) -- Anon Guest

Imagine a game so complicated that even the experts have to look up the rules. It is not just played with dice, but also cards, charts, tables, books, miniatures, and a hell of a lot of imagination. There is only one person at the

Kitty time! And Game Nite!

We're but a few staples away from having the Kitty Kondo(tm) completed!

It's game night, so Beloved and the family have some extra hours in which to bond with the fine feline that has caused NINE WEEKS of anguish and effort from us.

I am going to ENJOY being a blob this weekend. Snuggled up with my new kitty and finding her a name.

Hell, I might even post pictures.

But for now, I watch for Chaos' bus... and then get
