I went to bed at 10:10pm last night (I was tired) and woke up around 10 this morning. I was wide awake for my 11am game. I like staying up late, but it takes me a while to get used to it. I stayed up til 2:20 on Friday night (Saturday morning) for Danny’s game. It’s all good, I can function now and I feel pretty good, yesterday I was much the mess.
My game this morning went well with one exception. Danny pulled a no call no show, so they were short a wizard. Luckily the bard had a couple big boom spells which worked well. Being short a wizard kept them from going into the sprawl that I designed. The SLAAD (capitalized to stop autocorrect) they are to face next would have chewed them up without a wizard. SLAAD are tough, and I put a lot in there. Anyhow, a wizard with a few choice big spells and the rest of the party could make short work of them. SO, we stopped today a half hour early cuz the next battle is a full session battle in my estimation. If Danny shows up or I find another player to be the wizard (which I don’t want to do).
One of the Dave’s gave me a Christmas related D&D thingy from Geek and Sundry. He doesn’t know that I don’t celebrate Christmas or Krampus or anything at this time of year. It’s cool that he thought I’d do something Christmasy as the last game of the year, but nope, not me, I will not be doing festive, I will be doing deadly.
So, I still have a crappy hook for Tuesday night, I’ll fix it. I got almost 2 full days to get it ready. Plenty of time. I actually usually figure out exactly what I am gonna do a couple hours before the game. For all my games. The fact that I made a map and planned it all out for todays game was anomalous. But I might just plan out Tuesday night too.
After I get done blowing all the crap at Danny for no call no show #2. I don’t know if I will have a Thursday and Friday night game anymore. I made this Sunday game for Danny. He said he wanted a Sunday game, I said I could run one, he said he wanted 10th level, I said I could run that. Grrr, I’m disappointed and a little pissed. Right this moment I wouldn’t care if he kicked me from Thursday and Friday. No call No show #1, I was surprised but not upset. #2 I am very upset.
Assuming I don’t get kicked from Thursday and Friday. Last Thursday we whacked some hobgoblins and captured a rat priest (which took us forever). We were about to interrogate the priest when the game was called for the night. Which is fine.
Friday, I have no idea what is going on, but Yadd is free and in the party now. The big choice is whether to kill the Drow prisoner or not. I’ve thought about it. Kill him is the most humane thing we can do. He has been mentally mind mucked, so what choice do we have?
Cori’s game should start in like a month and a few days. I love new DM’s. Entirely fun to play with them. But I plan on not abusing her in any way. I’m gonna try to help her since she has chosen theater of the mind as her medium as well. Us totm people have to help each other out.
