The weirdest thing, my brand new headset started having issues that my old headset was having. Not being able to use the mic. So I pulled the old one out of the trash and gonna play around with it some more and see if I can get it working. Could just be a windows 10 patch issue. Anyhow, it took my about 10 minutes to get my new one to work again and I am naturally not sure what I did exactly to make it work.
One person had something come up, so we started the Wednesday night D&D game without him. The 4 that did show up had a great time, they missed out on some story elements, but got the main storyline down and got to where they were supposed to go. The 4 of them fought 14 Dire Wolves. Should have been a no brainer of a fight, but they almost all got beat on a little. My rule about everything doubles on a crit made the rogue do 70someodd points in one hit. Yup, I make criticals hurt in my game.
With the success of tonight and the continuing success of the Friday night game, Sunday afternoon is looking more and more promising. I don’t think I will have any problems finding players, just everyone seems to want roll20 (bah, paint the picture in your head, old school). I still don’t think it’ll be much of an issue really. I think our Canadian friend would be willing to play on Sunday afternoons too. He called my first DMing of high levels “EPIC”. I love hearing those kinds of reviews.
Looking forward to Friday night, all the players should be there and its the finale of this storyline arc. Not a great storyline, but its not bad either. So, I doubt I will get any “EPIC” reviews, but everyone should enjoy themselves. And that is all I really want is to have fun for a few hours and bring 6 people along with me.
I did well on Prime Day, my first new monitor is incredible. 28″ Samsung super monitor, works with my super video card. Sweet harmony together. I’m so happy I bought it. My second new monitor arrives tomorrow. A 32″ Samsung curved monitor. It won’t be taken out of the box til after Monday.
We took out trash and recyclables tonight. Took us about 10 minutes to get it all. And tomorrow with all the rest of the Amazon stuff coming in, we are gonna have a boat load of recyclables for next time too. Hopefully Amazon will merge what they can so we don’t have a bunch of little boxes.
OK, to sound like a broken record… my back hurts. Even with the ibuprofen, it still hurts, just not as bad. Just waiting for the pain doc’s office to call.
Mojo is going to the vet on Friday morning, we think he has yet another ear infection. He basically gets one every summer. Sucks for the little guy. But the vet is only 2 blocks away and Dr B is really great. So it could be a lot worse. And I always take Pucky along too to help keep Mojo calm.
Teresa got an Echo Dot and instead of naming it something different, she is calling this one Alexa also. Now she could have named it echo, dot, or amazon, but she chose Alexa, just like our Echo. So right now with both in the room, they both respond when you say Alexa, but you can only interact with the closest one. Weird. Anyway, the dot is going into the kitchen so Teresa can stream music while she cooks. Pretty cool.
A few 80s nostalgia acts have came thru Des Moines recently. I should have went to a few of them, seeing as I am a huge fan of 80s music. Def Leppard and Tesla were here. I forget who else. I didn’t find out about them until a friend of mine posted about the concerts on Facebook. I guess I hang out with the wrong friends. LOL, just kidding, I love all my friends.
