Just want to live till I die

During my Dungeons and Dragons Maloon game last night, I actually killed a character non-intentionally.  Making it 3 in 40+ years of gaming.  The monster they were fighting had a death ray, Make a saving throw to just take damage, she failed the saving throw, fail the saving throw by 5 of less, she was 8.  BOOM Insta-death.  I gave them a rod of resurrection a few session back but they needed a 1000gp diamond.  I gave her a 50/50 chance for there to be a 1000gp gem in the loot, she missed that too.  She was having bad luck.  So Sophia was dead for about an hour of the session before they got back to Maloon and got a 1000gp diamond.  I actually feel a little bad about killing her.   It was the first shot of the night too.  Not a good way to start the night.


Tomorrow night is the make-up session of Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons Eberron game from last Sunday.  I hope Jason lets me do what I want to but he might just say its in the book and I can’t change that.  Oh well, it’s just an idea.  We play this Thursday, then again on Sunday then my game on Tuesday.  Gonna be a busy week in our Dungeons and Dragons worlds.


Yesterday I listed my complaints healthwise not counting cancer.  I forgot one.  My chronic cough.  I have had it so long its easy to overlook.  I think its cause by an allergy to my dogs and I am not getting rid of my dogs, so there is nothing that can be done about it.


I’m tired, I am going back to bed.  I will finish this later


Took a little longer than nap time to get back to this but here I am 8 hours later.


I finally found Jones Soda Orange and Cream Soda in Des Moines.  The Candy Wearhouse in Valley West Mall finally responded to a message I sent over a month ago over Facebook that they do have it in stock.  And it is cheaper than ordering it from Jones’ soda directly.  So I will have Jones Soda Orange and Cream Soda in my possession sooner as opposed to later.  Yeah buddy, only been looking for it since I came to Iowa.  Fell in love with it while living in Vegas (VEGAS SUCKS).


Also, I have finally come up with a character advancement for Mit in Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons Eberron game.  It’s a little controversial, so either he will be OK, makes sense, or No frickin way.  I have thought hard about it, as a DM if I was running Jason’s game I would allow it.  I have 5 valid support points to my original statement, so I should be good… if he allows it.  Can’t force him, but he did at one point say “it can be anything”, so I am testing that I guess.  It’s all good if he does or doesn’t allow it.


My brother, while unpacking in their new house, discovered old VHS tapes that my grandfather made when we were kids.  I hope they are in good shape and that the 30 dollar VCR he bought doesn’t eat the tapes.  I too would love to see them.


On YouTube I started with X’s Burning House of Love video and somehow ended up with Jimmy Eats World’s The Middle.  Strange algorithm that they use sometimes.  Both of those songs and all of the ones in between were good, so I am not complaining.


Everything in Iowa opens up this Friday (with restrictions).  That means if I want to I will be able to go eat at a restaurant and not have to drive an extra half hour to find one that is open.  I am of mixed feelings about this opening, the economy needs it yes, but the Corona Virus is still a major concern.  I do not think that Teresa is going to let me out of the house except for medical stuff until they develop a vaccine.  Heh.  So, I guess for me it doesn’t matter.
