Got games on the brain

Two evenings ago I applied to join a Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition game online.  Didn’t think much of it when the Storyteller asked to meet over Discord.  I got on Discord (which I don’t like much, I prefer mumble for talking over the net), I got on Discord, had some problems with their User name but got connected to them within 28 minutes of when they sent the message of let’s chat.  This person was playing a game, I apologized for interrupting their game and pointed out they wanted to talk to me.  I pointed out that I haven’t played Call of Cthulhu since version 3, and that was a long time ago.  All the while during the conversation they continued to play games.  Carrying on the conversation was like pulling teeth, til eventually mid conversation they just logged out.  Well, I am assuming I didn’t get into the game.  Not that I want to be in a game ran by someone so rude.  I’ll find another game to play in.


I am ready for Sunday Evening’s Elite Monster Killer Squad game.  I have decided what they are going to have to fight.  I have decided how I am going to introduce said fight.  The only thing I haven’t decided is what to give them if they succeed in their first mission.  Assuming they succeed they are gonna want some serious compensation.  I’ll think of appropriate stuff between now and then.


Teresa used to be a huge fan of Good Eats.  Alton Brown being one of her heroes.  Well, Food Network has released Good Eats: Reloaded.  Where he is updating some of his old episodes, correcting mistakes, clarifying things, and making them modern.  He has also promised new episodes of Good Eats in the near future.  Teresa is very happy.  And I just watched like 5 episodes of Reloaded in a row.  Teresa does that, she binge watches all the episodes of a show that have been released to date.


I am back to thinking about cancelling my Sunday Morning game.   I just don’t think I can run 3 D&D games at one time, and it’s the game I am not feeling the most.   It’s nothing personal to any of the players, it’s just I’m not enjoying it very much.  There is nothing special about it.

Tuesday’s game they started from level 1.  They are now level 6.  They have worked for it. Yeah, that game is special to me.

Sunday Night’s game really appeals to me too.  High levels.  High Danger.   Yeah, I get to use monster’s I have never used before.  It’s gonna be way cool.  And it starts in 3 days.

Plus I bought a bunch of new games since Christmas.  I want to maybe get a variety of games going.  I bought Call of Cthulhu 7th edition.  Dammit, I am gonna be able to say I know it next time.  I bought Legend of the Five Rings which won all sorts of rewards.  I bought Tachyon Squadron, which is a Fighter Pilot rpg where you are against the Evil Empire.  I bought more than that.   I hope some of my regular players will be in to playing something besides D&D.  But I found a couple new places to look for players.  So, its all good.

Oh yeah, I also have a printer which doubles as a copier.  I will copy the character creation stuff if I have to.


Amazon is being funny shipping my stuff.  Stuff I ordered on the 30th is coming haphazardly.  Stuff I ordered on the 1st and 2nd are coming on the 4th.  Weird.  I’m thinking that I may not get my Tachyon Squadron game, it’s out of stock everywhere else.  Amazon says it will arrive between the 7th and the 10th.  It hasn’t shipped yet, the little bar has barely moved from purchased.  But the cool thing is the price keeps dropping and I will receive a refund for the difference when it finally ships.  Yeah, buddy.


I really like Amazon Unlimited music service.  But I don’t think it’s worth 7.99 a month.  When my 90 free days are up I am gonna cancel.  If I can figure out how.  I was looking around earlier today and they don’t make it an obvious choice.
