LEGO has a surprising understanding of my love for spaceships of various types.
It’s… not great… for our checking account.
On the other hand, the mechanism they use to move the foils to attack position on Luke’s X-Wing is REALLY cool. Probably one of the coolest I’ve seen in a standard ‘play’ level set, so that was super interesting to build. And I can’t wait to build the Discovery.
Also, it’s a REAL x-wing, not that janky ‘resistance’ weirdness. Thank goodness LEGO still cares about the classics. 😎
This is what comes of letting Bevin put herself on email lists….
It’s decidedly odd to have Kringle when it’s not Christmas. Almost… wrong… but it tastes so good!
Bevin just couldn’t help herself when she saw both Copenhagen (almond and cream cheese put together) AND the sweetheart (vanilla pudding and red velvet cake, with light chocolate frosting sprinkled with red velvet cake on top) at the same time…
And no, before you ask, the diet plan is not going well.
She’s also baking 2 sourdoughs AND a pie. Good thing we have company over.
Sitting around a table with people describing what your characters do in the world gets a teensy bit more complex when it’s with people from a thousand miles away.
The other two players will be joining us via video chat. We’re trying a new thing where Bev and I are on the same camera, rather than being two different cameras in the chat. We’ll see how it works out.
For some reason I got a wild idea for a cool story to tell, and starting today I’m running two different games in the same world. Maybe the groups will meet up eventually? Either way, I’m excited to see what they choose to do with the story! The adventure of being a writer with characters who are literally writing themselves does keep one on one’s toes. 😂
2 minutes ago it was clear and sunny. 30 seconds before I took this image I couldn’t see the house up the hill across the street. Sadly the camera doesn’t really show how much the rain is sheeting sideway. You can see it’s blowing a solid 5 feet into our entryway though. And the water is already halfway up the curb.
But, perhaps most worryingly of all, the sudden wind and rain appears to have caused our garden gnome to give up on life and go facedown in the newly formed pond. Poor guy, he could’ve knocked on the door and come inside.
Session 1, 3 adventurers, having joined the kingdom’s defense force, are sent on their first mission, to investigate wild animal and maybe… Monster?… activity near the border of the dark forest.
The DM is prepared. I think. I certainly have plenty of notes and note cards and plans for the area of interest. We’ll see if the adventurers stick to the script or wander off to start some sort of cow-worshipping commune. Letting the players make choices makes things unpredictable. Especially when 2 of them have never done this, and one of them is Bevin.
Speaking of Bev, her busy morning is completed.
My innocent new gamers are arriving, let’s see if I can make this interesting. 😎
