It’s a bright and beautiful Sunday in Adel, Iowa. I am up early to take care of the dogs morning feeding and taking out to take care of business, as I do almost every weekend. Usually this happens around 6am or 7am today was no exception 6am was when it all happened, then I tried to go back to bed until 7am when Alexa went goes off to tell me to take my morning med, but failed. So I am up. A nap or two will end up happening today.
Jim and Mom are not coming today cuz Jim has to get a drug test for his new job on Monday and they are waiting for the arrival of something in the mail/UPS/Fedex. That is fine with me, Monday evening is when they will arrive. Mondays are my non-gaming day, so I will get to spend some time with them even though they are only staying the night and heading to Colorado on Tuesday. I will get to see more of them next week on the way back. They are gonna be here Monday and Tuesday or Tuesday and Wednesday, I honestly don’t remember. It’s all good, I am not playing any of those 3 days.
Tonight is Jason’s Eberron Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I get to play H again. However, H will only be in existence for 6ish more Sundays. Jason has decided to end the campaign when we kill the BBEG. It’s not as bad as it sounds cuz Jason plans on running a Spelljammer campaign after Eberron is done. Spelljammer is Dungeons and Dragons in Space. Yep, we are going to be starting a new campaign very soon after the old on ends. So it’s all good.
I am still at a loss coming up with an idea for a theme for Tuesday night’s campaign. I got 2 weeks and 2 days max to come up with a good central theme. I came up with a good one for Chronicles. But have only come up with crap for ideas so far: things the are impossible in D&D and things that have been done again and again. So, on I go toying with bad idea after bad idea. But while writing this, I may have thought of a goodish idea. I will write it up and see how it looks. I know it’s possible in D&D and hasn’t been done a million times. So, maybe, just maybe I got lucky and finally have a good idea.
So my gaming schedule will be in a month and a half or so Jason’s Spelljammer campaign on Sunday nights, Feise San Eaglias, my campaign on Tuesday nights, Chronicles of the Lost, my campaign on Thursday night, and then random games on most Friday nights. With Wednesday held open for Cori’s eventual campaign. So 4 nights for now with a 5th night in the works. This should take me right into Seasonal Affective Disorder time.
Seasonal Affective Order hits me in the Fall. Mild to Severe Depression. Last year it lasted like 4 months, started in September though. It was my dark period. It took me months to recover socially. However, my new shrink, Dr. Easton says he can keep me from crashing with the newer anti-depressants which do not cause me to go manic. (that’s a good thing). So, hopefully this year will be different.
Teresa and I were talking about High School Friends and how she doesn’t have any left and I still have quite a few via Facebook. I say I would still be close with my friends if we lived closer to them, she says if it wasn’t for Facebook the friendships would have died. Weird, I have only been on Facebook for 12 or so years but I graduated high school 32 years ago and I had lost them during that exile, but I got them back. And I am of the mind that I would do anything for them within my power as they would do anything for me under the same premise. I have never had a problem making friends. Teresa claims she has no friends now and is fine with that. Teresa would be a total hermit if it wasn’t for me and her mom. Oh well, I can’t make friends for her, so I guess I’ll have my friends from high school, 1 semester at BSU, and other times and I will feel good about it.
