I know stuff has happened, but I can't think what to write... I didn't manage to catch Polly at home for her birthday.March, please.
I'm going to visit my sister in London with my ma next year. We're going in March for (nearly) three months. If it was March now I wouldn't have to go to work. Only 226 sleeps. Moving house has put my holiday savings about three grand in the hole. I was going to buy a laptop with wireless internet and take my digital camera and do a vacation blog, but I won't now. I wonder if someone wants a housesitter?Games are fun.RPGMeetup
was on Saturday; big and loud and going from strength to strength. On Sunday I went to Mind Games
' monthly Boardgame Day
where I met Ben and Bernard and we played Stone Age
. In the afternoon I played Dungeons & Dragons
at Duffy Street. We ironed some kinks in our combat a bit more and I tried out my eladrin wizard's big powers. John ran a side adventure for Ars Magica
on Monday. Shy brought Matt along to play which was good, although it was a companion adventure so the system wasn't presented in its best light. The adventure was fabulous and featured the Steward of the Marshes who was a giant talking crayfish. Yesterday there was more Dungeons & Dragons
where we learned an important lesson about how important not rolling poorly is to character survivability. (It didn't help my character that I had used his best tricks to overcome the minions on Sunday before we went through the waterfall to find the big bad guy.) Fourth Edition is growing on me as a player but I'm reading the Dungeon Master's Guide
(I have to run my own game soon) and it's might not be my kind of game to run. Time will tell.
