There is a lot of D&D talk in this one

Still waiting to hear how much the car is gonna cost to fix.  Insurance is talking about declaring it dead.  Which would be a real bummer right about now.  Besides the rear axel being broke, it’s a great car in great shape.  If it turns out insurance decides it’s not fixable, we get a check, which will go to pay off the loan.  Hopefully leaving us enough money to buy a new used car thru Teresa’s credit card company.   They have sent her several letters stating they would finance a car for her.  It’s just that it is hitting now is the problem, after the first of the year we have to start paying medical copays again.  That gets really expensive really quick.  So a lot of money will be going out and NOT a penny more will be coming in.   It sucks, but that’s life.


D&D last night was a blast.  I almost killed a character, actually I almost killed 5 out of 6.  They went up against a weakened young red dragon.   Weakened cuz I didn’t use his lair powers.  If I had used all the powers of even a young dragon, the party would have been toast.  Yup, I wussed the dragon out and still nearly had everyone dead.  The breath weapon is NASTY.   Chris, the new guy, fit right in.  And it turns out he loves theater of the mind, actually stating its better than roll20.  HA, take that roll20.   He was quiet while we played, he wasn’t around for the previous 6 sessions, so the camaraderie and inside jokes were missing, but he will have those going forward.  Normally I wouldn’t have brought him in because the party was so close to each other.  But they needed a 6th person.  Without the Ranger (Chris) the dragon would have won I think.  Well, I can say that about everyone, everyone did a good job.  They work together well.  Now I have to figure out what to do for next week, I set the bar kinda high.


I still rolled for crap last night.  Well, I did make some key saving throws. But as far as hitting, my rolls sucked.  On the 20 sided die, I barely ever rolled above a 10.  It’s almost embarrassing.  I think the only thing I hit with was the breath weapon, and that is an Area of Effect spell.  Cone shape from dragon mouth, hits everyone in the path for a boat load of damage, makes your saving throw for half damage, a smaller boat load of damage.  So yes, I did damage to the party last night, but no I never rolled a hit, take that back, rolled 1 crit and the Diviner Wizard, changed my roll to a 3, which is a big miss.


Still hoping we are playing Danny’s campaign tomorrow night.  If he cancels again cuz of work, I think I am gonna quit it.  His work has to come first, I understand that.  But leaving a bunch of us waiting just sucks.  I could spin up another theater of the mind game on Thursday nights.  Probably have 6 people already and if not I am sure I could find the 1 or 2 I would be missing.  I like the guys in Danny’s group.  I like everything about Danny’s game so far.  But we only played once so it would be nothing to walk away, I want my Thursday nights to be fun.


I think that Cori has decided to use theater of the mind for her campaign after new years.  We talked quite a bit about it.  I told her the good points and the bad points of each, and I think she is going to go totm.  That’s cool with me.  I think she has all her players now too.  Probably too many.  lol.  She told me she is gonna run on Wednesday nights, which are perfect for me.  Give me the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday block of gaming.   Yup, nerdy cool.


I think I gave them too much loot last night.  They are still trying to decide who gets what.  LOL.


My shoulder is still messed up hurting.  If its not GvHD then I pulled or tore something.  The pain has been going on for too long.  Oh well, its just pain. Can’t remember doing anything to it to hurt it.  Guess I will find out if its GvHD on Monday or if I go to a orthopedics doc to look at it.
