May the 4th be with you

Last evening we play some serious Dungeons and Dragons in the Eberron setting.  Jason did a phenomenal job being the Dungeon Master.  The game in ways exceeding my expectations, and my expectations were high.  I like all the players in the game.  Well, it turns out I have DMed for 3 of the 4 other players and the Dungeon Master, so it felt comfortable.  It was great getting to play alongside Cori, Dave and James.  Hadn’t spoken to James in a while, was a pleasant surprise that he was one of the players.  Man it was all good.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am seriously looking forward to next week’s game.

Mit Haustieren was a blast to play.  SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much role playing potential and according to Jason is helping him make story lines and arcs.  So that is all good too.  Jason has to let me give one command that triggers both my pets to attack.  Otherwise it’s useless to have Osiris, my owl.  He doesn’t have much of an attack, but he has an attack I would like to use.  So Jason and I will discuss it and go from there.  If he says no, then I switch Osiris out of the game for some other infusion because he would serve no purpose and I could have something else that did something.

It was a little strange coming into an already established campaign, where all the players were comfortable with their characters and interaction between their characters.  But I think overall I held my own.  I did, what Jason said, was some good role playing.  I told him I can role play, I guess I surprised him anyway.  And I logiced out part of the plans I was given.  So, it’s all good, I will get the hang of Jason’s game in a couple sessions.


This afternoon is start of yet another chemo run.   Bah, I hate chemo.  But I will go and get it so I can continue to live.  Yup its not a choice at this point.  And today we find out if my transplant failed again and my numbers are dropping.  My GvHD is gone, its not just because the air got more humidity.  Well, maybe it is.   We will find out today.


I’m dealing with monster fatigue now.  And this chemo will just make it worse.  All I want to do is sleep.  Yesterday I slept for 10pm to 6am then 9am to 11am then 1pm to 4:22pm, that is a lot of sleep.  Today I won’t get as much cuz of the chemo in the middle.  But I will have slept from 11:30pm-7am, then 9am to noon, then probably 5pm to 7pm.  Fatigue sucks, I have zero energy.


It’s May the 4th.  or May the 4th be with you.  Tonight we will watch the last Star Wars movie.  Didnt see it in the theater cuz I was sick.  So, instead we will watch it on our 55″ big screen UHD TV at the foot of the bed.  Yep, tonight will be movie night at the Hectic household.


I feel pretty rough this morning, but I am not running a fever.  So, I guess I have no excuse not to go to chemo today.


It’s not my place to say why, but if anyone is hiring tech people in the Chicago area, please let me know.  Someone very close to me just lost his job because he was too good of a worker.  Honest truth there.  So, if you know someone hiring in and around Chicago please let me know at hectic@ttrpg.org or message me on Facebook.  Thank you.
