of kickstarters D and D Derecho and Covid-19

Welcome to August 12th, 2020. A day filled with much promise to be quickly forgotten. It’ll just be another day recovering from the Derecho for most of Central Iowa. Heh, listened to a Chicago broadcast where they were whining about winds of 88mph, we had winds over 100mph, so Chicago can kiss my butt, wusses. I guess by the time blew thru Iowa, the winds had slowed down a little. But to put the wind in perspective… it would have been a Cat2 hurricane, or at the every top end of a class 1 Tornado, and it blew for like 45 minutes with a torrential rain storm. Yeah, I am still talking about the storm because evidence of it’s destruction is visible out of every window and definitely on every news broadcast.

I feel so much better during the day now. Except I am super fatigued. Like sleep 14-16 hours a day. But if I do that during the overnight into the day, I am awake during prime time (so to speak) which is a good thing. The problem right now around 6pm I start feeling weak and achy and cranky. I am just hoping this goes away soon.

Like I said, I am not playing Dungeon and Dragons this week. All they need is a cranky DM. Heh. Anyhow, Feise and Chronicles are set to resume next week and I hope/think I should be able to give them a go. Now, Sunday night we have plans to finish Jason’s Eberron campaign. He is going to fast forward travel and get us to the BBEG. Once we kill him, the campaign will all but be over. We will either save the world or die trying.

I just deleted a big political paragraph. I do NOT discuss politics or religion here. Those of you who really know me know where I stand on both of these topics. I don’t need to post them here.

I have nothing planned for this week, except lots of sleep I guess. 6 days till my next Dr. thing and that is a video call with Dr. Eastin, my shrink.

Good news on the Covid-19 vaccine front. According to Dr. Fauci (who I trust), vaccines should be ready by the end of the year and available 1st quarter of 2021. That is really good news. I might still make it out to Colorado before my brother and mother move back to the Region. I want to actually see Colorado, not just drive thru it. And I want a Macho Combo Burrito and Chili Cheese Fries from Del Taco (Bucket list items).

Speaking of my mother and brother. YAY, they have a definite plan to be back in the Region in June 2021. And its a solid plan. I am so happy to hear this.

I have supported 2 kickstarters in my life. If you dont know what a kickstarter is, well its a game or book for a game or some such that the creator doesn’t have the cash in hand to make it happen. They take their project to the kickstarter platform, and people like me donate X dollars in exchange we get the book or game first. I kickstarted Mutant League Football back a few years ago. I enjoyed that game back on the Sega Genesis but found it too hard in its new creation on the PC. The second kickstarter I am supporting is a book of magic items for 5e Dungeons and Dragons. He has sent out a ton of updates on where he is on the project and has promised a December delivery. Longer than I wanted to wait, but still a cool self-given Christmas present (even if I “bought” it in April).

I don’t have anything else to share at this time. So, I guess I will end this here.
