Age discrimination has no place in D&D

Today marks the first time someone told me that I am tool old to play in their Dungeons and Dragons game.  I know I have been age discriminated against before but no one has just come out and said it before.  This age rejection was blunt and harsh.  I deleted the message on reddit but it said basically they were looking for younger players and I was just too old for their game.  Yeah, well, they can kiss my buttocks.  I don’t really want another game right now, so you can go play all you want.  My old self will just keep playing with my friends.  Too old to play D&D…  BAH

And so it happened, I made a bunch of characters to replace Mit.  And I have narrowed it down to 2.  I have only told Jason about the Paladin, so that is who I will probably go with Heiliger Krieger is an Orc Paladin of Vengence.  He doesn’t have the role playing amazingness that Mit had, but I can still role play with him.  He should be fun to play in Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons Eberron game.  At least I hope so, if he isn’t fun then there is something wrong in my head still and I will bow back out of the campaign.  Yup, if I end up disliking another character I am playing then I will just quit, don’t want to put Jason and the others thru my mental crap.

I slept like a normal person last night.  So the 2 nights I woke at 3am might just have been flukes.  My body reminding me it still can be a pain in the butt.  I hope I sleep well again tonight.  I’m gonna try to not nap today.  Try being the operative word.  Sometimes its hard to just make it through the day without a good nap.

Heh, I’m gonna live to see 50.  Something I never thought was going to happen.  My birthday is August 6th.  I’ll definitely live that long.   51 might be a whole different story but 50 yeah.  That’s only 2 1/2 months away.

The not a lockdown is over in Iowa now.  I think.  Yeah, there are some restrictions for businesses and restaurants, but yay (sorta) it’s over.  The sorta is cuz the 2nd wave of Corona Virus is gonna hit real soon.  And many more people are gonna die.  Yup, most all the medical people agree that this is a certainty.  Politicians and rich people are making the decisions though, so out people will go and who knows whats really gonna happen?  We see what happens on TV, cuz I still am self-isolating only going out for medical things and I will keep doing that for a long while.

My brother passed the phone interview with the company in Colorado.  He’s waiting for them to schedule an in person interview.  All the while he is still hoping to find something in Chicago.  So he wouldn’t have to move.  If he does end up moving to Colorado, it’s all good.  Same cost to fly to Denver as it is Chicago for us.  And about the same drive time (but my god, Nebraska is a BORING drive), ok I am wrong, its 3 hours more to drive.  So its the same cost to fly to Denver, so its all good.  I don’t want him to have to move though.  I want him to stay in the Region. is a hit on the Chinese search engine Baidu.  So, I have had a rash of Chinese readers which is kind of cool.  And every once in a while I get a reader from Europe and the Middle East.  Its weird, I rarely post anything worth reading.  But somehow these people find me.  Way cool.  I welcome anyone who wants to read my babbling.  It’s all good.

the year I was born.  Carpenters were the bomb back then.
